Prove it wrong! No? Obviously not because you know what I said is right. You don't need a masters degree to understand how the definite article works..., it fairly basic Greek grammar.

Even if you knew no Greek if you saw John 1;1 written in Greek you would see the different wording which isn't shown in the dishonest English translations

Paul was by your standards quite well fought he studied at the feet of Gamalial. But then he sad he considered it all refuge to be thrown away.
Wisdom from this world is not something any Christian would boast of but it is clearly important to you?
Let any reader note this poster has made no attempt to disprove the researched info I put down(he knows it is correct) his question are simply an attempt to deflect from this truth!
Yeah yeah. You said you were going to teach us greek, what are your credentials? Stop avoiding the question.

you don't need a Greek degree for understanding basic Greek grammar. We are talking about how the Greeks wrote "THE"

But you don't care about my credentials you are just trying to deflect from the accuracy of a point you cannot argue against.

LET THE READERS NOTE NEITHER MYTHBUSTERS OR THE OTHER POSTERS CAN OFFER ANY REBUTTAL TO THIS CLEAR POINT ON THE GREEK WORDS USED IN JOHN 1;1....that ho Theos and Theos do not have the same meaning in Greek one is a person one is a qualative usage.

The rebuttal is your self-professed claim to have mastery over the greek language. You said you would teach us. By what authority can you TEACH greek? Answer the question.

Not avoiding the question at all just enjoying you wriggle around trying to ignore the accuracy of the point on Greek translation.

You really can't face the truth about John 1;1 can you.

ad hominem attacks to discredit the person are the last resort fallacy usage of people who know they have lost the debate!

Address the point on the fact john 1;1 is clearly mistranslated by trinitarians to support their exegesis. be brave if you dare

Now, what are your credentials? One more waffle on your part and it will be blatantly obvious you have no credentials.

You haven't proven anything. You said you would explain greek to us, but haven't. So, again, post your credentials or post the citations for where you were going to get the information because up to this point, you haven't done anything but deflect and dodge. I imagine name calling is next in your arsenal.

why would you need a degree in Greek for easily researcheable Greek grammar points?

Fallacy attacks is all ex- jw's can do when they know your point is accurate.

And yet again you fail to address the point on John 1;1 being easily seen as a mistranslation from Greek to English to suit church exegesis.

My credentials in Greek is the same as anyone with enough intelligence to research the basic grammar of any language!

Prove to me that you need more?

I think the closest you came to studieing any language was rearranging the letters in your bowl of alphabet cereal.
