I see no problem discussing the meaning of ARCH or relevant data concerning
its use. I can also agree that the translation "ruler" is a good possibility
in the context of Col. 1:18.

I hope the whole list will understand that the problem with the previous
thread was the theological attack on a group. I know that we drift over the
line into hermeneutics and theology from time to time, but the real problems
comes when we formulate questions or answers in purely theological terms or
into some system that involves the whole book or Bible. Use good judgment
and be respectful of others and there will be no problems or hopefully flame
