Certainly you wouldn't take this to mean that any way we proclaim God is
legitimate. For instance, if I stripped off my clothes and spray painted
"Jesus Loves You" on my body in purple spray paint, then walked on my hands
through Central Park, would you respond by quoting the same verse? For those
of us who find spamming of any sort wildly offensive, your spamming is an
equally effective proclamation for Jesus.

I don't make it an idol, but it *is* the subject of the B-Greek list...why
not use the list to bring out some of the mature truths you see in the
biblical Greek?
