Yes, Koine DID use punctuation and the Early MT manuscripts used them:
"Punctuation in Early 2 Greek New Testament Texts
It is because popular and still-circulating Trinitarian apologetic works, Greek grammars, and
works on the language and text of the NT often fail to completely or accurately inform others
about significant occurrences and the likely intended use of punctuation marks in ancient Greek
texts. Consider the following example:
In ancient Greek there were no punctuation marks; indeed, all words were run together with
no spaces between them and using all capital letters.3
As Comfort writes on the same page of his 2005 book (quoted and referenced on page 1),“This
is far from the truth.” In fact, if Bowman had simply reviewed some of the very Greek grammars
which he cited two years earlier in one of his 1989 publications,4 he may not have so wrongly
stated the matter concerning punctuation marks in ancient Greek."

The googlers are you friend, eh?

You'd think a person that must've spent 40 years of his life in college wouldn't need the googlers to help him find information.

So the clergy were already clergy by his own words. Then the clergy BECAME atheists. Then they continued to be BECOME clergy.
One can't BE a clergy and continue to BECOME a clergy.
Dumb atheists.
Read DS's post once more.

This time though, read it very, very carefully.

If you still can't find where you're making a mistake, I'll help you.

Did you want to make an argument or even a bare claim to go with this? Were you defending Luther?
If you looked at the link, then you'd know the location of that quote is unknown.

If you read my response later, you'd know I certainly didn't defend ML.

If you had an ounce of common sense or an iota of reason, you'd know that any learned person of faith knew of ML's faults, but moreover doesn't trust ANY person to be faultless.

But the corker is, I simply requested the context of the quote.

All you did was make stupid assertions and make more unreferenced quotes.

You are consistently the 'rational humanist' oxymoron...

wow! Luther was a jerk, a bigot and a general scumbag!

Ah, the classic hypocrite response.

Now you know everything you need to know about ML, right?

KiMare, IANS did provide the source...Martin Luther. If you want to verify those quotes (there is that "verify" again) you can use Google.
For example...
I googled "What harm would it do, if a man told a good strong lie" and got lots of sites, including...

This took less than a minute.
Um, I was speaking of context. What writing was that supposedly a quote from.

You girls just got in trouble because you used giving statistics that were unvalidated.

Gotta love the 'rational atheist' oxymorons...

The only thing your post did was expose your lack of character and moral substance.
Oh, and validate the 'rational humanist' oxymoron.

Seems to me everyone needs to have some things drilled into thier empty heads.

For all "christians";

The book of jude commands us to treat everyone outside the faith with mercy and compassion. I haven't seen that much on this thread.

For the atheists:

This is a free country. I don't care if you believe or not, you are free to not believe or to believe and worship. Respect that freedom. It was purchased in blood.

How's that?
Your reading comprehension isn't very good, is it?

The reference to clergy means "clergy as of now", not "clergy before they finished seminary". The "continued to become clergy..." should have given you a clue. Jeez, Hiding is right. You really are stoopid.

See, the thing is...even though they became atheists in seminary...they STILL went on to be clergy. That is, they were atheists first, clergy second. For a variety of reasons they continued on to their chosen career even though they no longer believed.

Maybe desire not to disappoint the family, for example. Or, having started on that path, not knowing what else to do.

As I said, if you bothered to listen to the interview, you just might understand this.

Then you lied when you said you got your High School diploma as an adult after dropping out as a teen ?

The problem with pathological liars like you is that you can't even remember your own lies.
