I think this comes out clearly in some of the messages that are posted here
on a regular basis. Do you really think that the meaning of the NT texts
isn't brought out on B-Greek, or that these texts will not bring us to God?

Not everybody here is Christian, but I think most of us are, and I think we
have all been exposed to the Bible - to the extent that we have taken the
time to learn Greek. I guess I should point out that I am an evangelical
Christian, and I do prison ministry as my main way of reaching people. If
God can work through the Bible, I think you can trust him to speak to us as
we discuss the Bible in depth here. Of course, not everyone will accept the
gospel, and there will always be some who prefer their own wisdom to God's,
but just about everyone on B-Greek has repeatedly had a chance to respond to
the gospel.

To witness effectively requires listening as well as speaking, and on
B-Greek, listening requires some technical mastery of the Greek language.
There are plenty of Christians who are, in fact, witnessing here by bringing
out the meaning of the texts.

I appreciate your zeal. But I also think that spamming is rude, and it
certainly violates the regulations of the Internet.
