[b-greek] question about james 5:14

I have a question about the meaning of this passage in James [5:14]

From what I can see in the UBS GNT 4th Ed.,

ASTHENEI TIS EV hUMIN "The one who is sick among you...."

is not a question, but rather a statement -- especially as there is no
punctuation [;] that would indicate this being a question (Although there is
in my Zondervan Parallel Interlinear-- go Zondervan! ...not...) Anyway, it
seems to me that there are two things going on here -- I just want to know
if what I am thinking is correct or not -- please tell me if I am wrong. :)

1 -- That if no Christian ever gets sick, then why would James bring the
matter up, whether or not it is actually a question, and

2 -- If it is not a question, James would appear to be making a strong
statement about Christians getting ill -- that it *does* indeed happen...

Any thoughts or opinions on this would be much appreciated

Thank You

Rob Somers
