<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>I fininshed a paper on I Timothy 1:1-12 about two
months ago.&nbsp; The hot-spot of the passage is the translation of ARSENKOITOS
(homosexual).&nbsp; Without getting myself thrown off the list, I would like to
solocite some who believe this word to mean something other than the BAGD
definition (ie it means an "abusive homosexual partner.")&nbsp; I am NOT trying
to start a theological discussion of whether homosexuality is right or
wrong.&nbsp; </FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>The main problem is that it appears that Paul
created the word from the juxta-position of Leviticus 20:13, so it is difficult
to go to secular Greek and get a good definition of the word.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>During my studies of the passage, I only found
commentaries, journal articles, etc. that explained the other side.&nbsp; I am
interested in responses from those that actually believe the other side or in
links, books, etc. that are from the other side.</FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2></FONT>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV><FONT face=Arial size=2>Thanks in advance for any response.</FONT></DIV>
