Apparently not, Eric. I unleashed it by foolishly violating my own
principle of avoiding theological issues except when they are inescapably
at the core of the Greek of a passage under discussion. I deeply regret
having done so, not because I've abandoned my thinking on the subject, but
because sides are being drawn in a partisan contention that is theological
at the core rather than as you describe, about Biblical Greek grammar or
problems of exegesis or interpretation arising from the Greek text--and
this is really not the appropriate forum for that contention." My apologies
to the list.
