Thank very much for your responce to my last post.
In 1Cor 6:4 it says, BIOTIKA MEN OUN KRITHRIA EAN ECHTE, TOUS
EXOUQENHMENOUS EN THi EKKLHSIAi, TOUTOUS KAQIZETE;
NAB 1Corinthians 6:4 So if you have law courts dealing with matters of
this life, do you appoint them as judges who are of no account in the
Is it possible here to read, "despised by the church"? I am a little
bit unclear as to when EN should be taken as 'in' and when 'by'. Are
there rules that cover this, or is it a matter of context? If it is
indeed by context (although it would carry a negative message about the
attitudes of the early church toward outsiders), wouldn't it make more
sense here to see Paul as refering once again to taking their legal
affairs before unbelievers?
