[b-greek] Re: YEUDOS

Just a quick observation.

In I Cor. 1-4 Paul seems to allow for incorrect teaching. Since this was part
of the thinking in the church at that time, the definition of YEUDODIDASKALOS
would have to allow for incorrect teaching to happen. These people would not
thereby be labeled as being YEUDODIDASKALOS.

Guessing, I suggest the word could carry the weight of either sincere and dead
wrong or an implication of a hidden agenda. For example, the statement, "I
sincerely believe Jesus was never born" may very well be what someone
believes, but it's dead wrong. And the other possibility is an attempt to
deceive by knowingly teaching error. That is, there is some other motivation
going on, self-promotion, money, etc.

The commendation of the Bereans also comes to mind, in this regard.
