Dear Dr. Powers:

With all due respect (and I do respect you greatly), I think these comments
are out of place on B-Greek, since they are theologically oriented. Many
liberals on this list would no doubt disagree with your statement "not
everyone will be saved." And as a Calvinist, I would disagree with just
about everything you said after that. I think it would be more in keeping
with the purpose of B-Greek to confine our discussion to what the Greek word
PAS may legitimately mean.
