    Recall the first thing God said to describe the serpent. That's right! He is the most subtil beast that God had made.

    Subtill connotates cunning.

    The serpent plays tricks with God's word to add or subtract letters to distort one's thinking. I am starting a list so that members in our body of Christ can add words to the list that the Holy Spirit has revealed to him or her.

    Observe that the letter added and/or subtracted will either distort or modify the meaning. State whether either word is a (D) distortion or (M) modification.

    Examples:

    M Evil + d = Devil
    D God + l = Gold
    D Word + l = World
    D Heaven - h + l = Leaven

    Rev12
    [9] And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

    Amen!

    You're playing games with English words, nothing more and nothing less.

    The evil one would be happy for us to obsess about spellings instead of spending our time growing in grace and serving in the power of the Kingdom.

    Matthew 13:33 "Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened."

    Subtil? Subtill? Did that ole debil distort those words? French? Old English?

    Methinks Epictetus was having a bad day. Why would anyone even try to learn what he thinks he already knows, however, if shown new and compelling evidence, why wouldn't he relearn, or learn anew? I "think" I know? Is that positive (I know that I know), or relative (maybe I know, depending upon the context), or subjective (I know that I know), or..........

    Well said. Comparing English with the Biblical Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, as to adding or changing letters is about akin to comparing Chinese and 'Pig Latin'.

    You gotta wonder what evil person put an "s" in the word "lisp."
