Actually your question was not in itself theological; it was respondents
who got into theology. I offered my own opinion that the Greek text itself
could not be decisive in answering your question adequately; what I did not
add was the obvious point, that if it was to be answered at all, it would
have to be answered from an interpretation of the context--and that's where
an analyst's interpretation is pretty likely to get into theological
questions, which, of course, we try to avoid getting into on B-Greek. But
your question itself was not a theological question as such.
