I don't know what theological issues Jeffrey and I disagree about, but I do
hope no one has concluded from any of my posts that I approve of theological
discussions on b-Greek. I wholly support approved policy. Sometimes, of
course, it's difficult to see exactly where the line is, but we should
always accept Carl's or Carlton's rulings on such matters. It would be
wonderful if we could debate theological issues, to the extent that such
debates might enhance meaningful translation, but that's an ideal that is
completely impractical, as I think we all understand.
