The anaphora of 1 John 3:5 & 8 & the Subjunctive

<x-flowed>Just "piling on" here in saying that Carl's five point statement on the
nature of language and biblical translation is one of the most accurate and
to-the-point that I have seen. His statement about "dignity" captures the
essence of why some prefer the 1611 KJV even if it is difficult for them to
understand it. I personally gravitate toward the less "dignified" of the
formal equivalent translations and end up at the NKJV or the 1995 NASB
(which is less formal than the previous NASB).

Anyway, thanks, Carl, for a good clarifying statement.
