Carl made a point about a woman being saved "through childbearing", which
comes in 1 Timothy 2:15, which is (as I mentioned) at the end of the
chapter Harry is asking about. This verse has DIA, "through". Carl's
comment could have been read to imply one particular interpretation of DIA
in this verse. I responded to this part of Carl's comments, wishing to draw
attention to the fact that such an interpretation is not the only one which
is possible for DIA here, in verse 15.

Carl's point was about the relationship of the ANQRWPOI being saved in
verse 4 and the GUNH (see verse 14) being saved in verse 15 of the same
chapter - the same verb SWiZW is used in both verses.
