There are many people who would agree with your previous statements. I
apparently am not one of them. I understand how "mythical" beliefs can come
about but a proper understanding of the Revelation can only stem from a
NON-SYMBOLIC reading of the Revelation. It is the symbolism and allegoric
interpretations that cause most if not all of the confusion about this most
wonderful book.

I'd like to apologize if this letter or my previous one offended any of
you. Also, I'm sorry that this subject is so far distant from Greek. Keep
the email going between us all, I for one am certainly learning more from
reading here.
