Romans 1:17 query
#42
Quote:Dave, if you had a book on Hebrew grammar and would read it, you would see how you have proven that the gender of a Hebrew verb generally agrees with the gender of the subject, and that there are many exceptions to the rule. "Ruach" is grammatically feminine, always. So is "Eretz"-"Earth" ; does that mean earth is a woman ?
Enan- "Clouds" is masculine; does that mean clouds are men ?
Every noun in Hebrew is either masculine or feminine; does that mean everything is a man or woman ?

The study was important. The conclusion was also important, in that it gave some sort of idea on the overall usage of the gender towards The Holy Spirit.

It boils down to correctness. I'm being particular in an area where others move over it or around it, or just avoid it altogether.

Was the study wrong? Obviously not. You, Paul, and others have yet to prove it wrong. I'm not being hardheaded, I threw this flag up here but have yet to see anyone prove otherwise or correct it.

Quote:By the way, "Pneuma" - "Spirit" in Greek, is neuter. Does that mean the Holy Spirit in the NT is an "It", while the Holy Spirit in the OT is a "She" ?

I don't read greek, and God has no plans for me to at the moment, but the study did not say the greek was wrong. In fact, the aspect of the greek being neutral was not, in their eyes, completely wrong. The syriac, on the other hand, does not have that luxury. It has to say one way or the other. When it does go into the masculine, it should align with the OT usage of the masculine towards The Holy Spirit, but in Acts 1:4 it didn't. I had a problem with that simply because we are talking originality. Everyone and their grandmother's entertainer on here promotes originality of the syriac text and how accurate the "scribes" were who wrote it. I beg to differ, particularly in this area.

Quote:The Holy Spirit has directed me to say these things to you, Dave; you are not right in God's sight. You must repent and seek forgiveness ; otherwise you will grow worse and worse and descend into Hell and become a demon, blaspheming the very Spirit Whom you claim to know and love.

Hmmmm, I'm going to become a demon huh? Hehe, yea ok.

I'm not going to persue asking guestions about your Sprit-filled life here unitarian, since you have already put that down as something completely wrong, but I will concede on a few things you point out;

Yes, I'm quite arrogant, I'm quite bold, and I'm happy about that since I'm also completely in tune with what God wants done. My ambitions have Him perfectly centered in my thoughts and actions. I'm one of His Chosen of His church and He chose me on pedictability. Would I hold His interests as foremost and true or would I later on persue my own forsaking His? Where would my heart be over time?

My ambitions are completely towards The Almighty Dave, so you have no reason to worry on my current state of salvation or my progress in santification. He's been working with me all this time through thick and thin and knows how to handle me when I'm stepping out too much on my own, and will also bring me back into the fold whenever I do.

Will I change any time soon? I highly dought that. I'm like a pitbull when it comes to getting something done for Him, and He doesn't see anything wrong with it. And unless I start claiming that all actions are proceding from me instead of Him, I'm not too worried about the outcome because it will always be good.

My wilderness is almost complete Dave, and a grand annointing awaits those who go through that sort of fire. It's been costly, but the end result will be worth it completely. To those who desire much, much will be required. Why? So that you appreciate what is given to you and you keep Him in rememberance of it all the time.

No one holds you back Dave, you can stay comfortable where your at or desire more, it doesn't matter to me. You can do all the scripture studies you want in whatever language you want, but it will boil down to one thing, ask and ye shall receive. Some things are a work of faith, there is just no way around it. We have to take an action of faith to find out at times.

Anyways, enough on that.
