In response to your new thread that you started on this topic, Comforter (what is it with trolls and their need to start new threads on a topic that is already running?), I will qualify my statement (as I did in this thread) with the words "at the door". No Dub I've met knows enough Greek that I will engage in such discussion with him/her. Are you saying that you've met all these people you name - Stafford, Furuli and Franz?
If you weren't such an overly sensitive prat, Comforter, you'd note that my major example was a Christadelphian belief that Hebrews 9:12 means that Jesus had to first attain his own redemption, due to a laboured interpretation based upon the use of the middle voice. My interest isn't even in that petty little cult, either, it is in cleaning up my own backyard, mainstream Christendom. I've heard some totally dumb-arse assertions made about the meanings of words, eg. dunamis=dynamite, hilaros=hillarious (2 Cor. 9:7), agapao and phileo are non-interchangeable, etc. With the death of the subject of my webpage, I need a new hobby, so I'm considering a website where I showcase these and other atrocious examples. If the fact that average Dubbies don't know enough Greek to save their lives concerns you, then I suggest you do as I'm planning on doing, and seek to reform your own movement from within.
