Does1 Cor 7:17 have conditional force? Eij mh; eJkavstw/ wJ" ejmevrisen oJ
kuvrio", e{kaston wJ" kevklhken oJ qeov", ou{tw" peripateivtw. Only, as the
Lord has assigned to each one, as God has called each, in this manner let him
walk. I am having difficulty making sense of the logical equivalent of "if not
B, then not A" if it does. This may be because of the hWS in the two protases.
If the hWS is dropped then the logical equivalent seems to be "if one does not
walk in this manner, then the Lord has measured to him and God has called
him." But this does not make sense. Perhaps EI MH does not go with the hWS
clauses and instead is the protasis to hOUTWS PERIPATEITW? But the logical
equivalent is still evasive. Can anyone help with this?
