'Apostates' being labelled 'mentally diseased'. Is discrimination against mentally disabled people by using it as a 'hate crime' term?

    sizemik - What about underly critical - is that bad too?

    Yes . . . underly is bad Unky. Overly is better. Utmost is best.

    "Do your utmost" . . . it's in the Bible.

    ThomasCovenant - I don't have an interlinear anymore, does it translate the GK to 'mentally diseased' in Timothy?

    Not sure what GK is but the 4th Greek word literally translated as 'being diseased' in the Interlinear is then read as 'mentally diseased' in the scripture, as I showed above the breakdown of words.

    sizemik - Now we have a balance. Balance is good!

    ThomasCovenant - Thanks for the research. GK = Greek, sorry if I confused. I'm not sure where my interlinear went to, in a box somewhere I guess.

    ThomasCovenant - Many thanks. I'll try the torrent when I'm home on my own PC. I do have an 'Emphatic Diaglott' in the cupboard but I can't be bothered to get it as it's under some other stuff that I'd have to move.

    I did have something called 'eSword' on one of my PC's which was legal & free and had all the Greek AND Hebrew words. As of late I've been off my in depth Bible studies. I'm investigating 'logical fallacies' and darned interesting it is too!

    That mentally diseased thing truly pisses me off. As for the suing thing, man, the watchtower has some pretty slick lawyers. It makes me angry; how dare they say that this 'Jehovah' is backing them. And that the bible is on there side, so (according to the scriptures) they can call anyone they want. Its just wrong!

    Joliette - It's a classic case of mystical manipulation what you correctly identify here.
