Since a coupla members wishta discuss 1 Tim. 6:10 and a few other issues on the 'Wilkinson' thread, I have started this thread to take up these issues, rather than bog down the "Wilkinson" thread. Let's deal with the latest stuff: Antenna Farmer:Robycop3 says: "Correct...and I'm waiting for someone to say it's incorrect. If anyone does, I wanna see PROOF! Not opinion, not guesswork, but *PROOF*!" And I am STILL awaiting that PROOF. All YOU'VE posted is opinion and guesswork, which is unacceptable. All it proves is that in your KJVO zeal, you'll defend ANYTHING about the KJV, no matter how incorrect or silly it is. The one claiming that the Holy Bible is wrong is Robycop3. Wrong. I am correctly claiming that a certain rendering in one version is incorrect. Like every other English version, the KJV is a TRANSLATION, not God's original words. It was made by men & thus is subject to human error. Robycop3, you are putting your man made teaching ahead of the Bible. You claim that the KJV can't be right because Robycop3 doesn't agree with it. Wrong again, as usual. The man-made teaching YOU are trying to get someone to believe is that the KJV is always automatically right. "For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil: which some reaching after have been led astray from the faith, and have pierced themselves through with many sorrows."- ASV That verse offers NO exceptions to the kinds of evil having their root in the love of money. No exceptions. None at all! "All kinds" "all sorts" it makes no difference. None of the versions offer you even one evil that isn't some "kind" of evil. Your whole premise here is SO STUPID that it doesn't really merit a response. However, I don't want the other readers to think I'm avoiding it, so I'll respond. The phrase "a root" says in itself that there ARE other roots. And "all kinds" sez there is more than one kind. No rocket science needed to see that, but you're trying to use "Molotov Cocktail Science" here, acting as if WE don't understand elementary English. More than once, the GREEK has been explained by various members. But here it is again: The first word of the sentence is 'philargyria', which literally means ' love of silver'. Nest is 'est', "is". Next is 'rhizo', "root". There's NO WORD in the Greek between 'est & 'rhizo'. Now, Greek has a definite pronoun, equivalent to the English "the", but NO INDEFINITE pronoun equivalent to the English "a". Now, paul was a highly-educated man, and had he meant "the" root here, he certainly would NOT have omitted the definite peonoun. Thus. "a" is the most-correct and logical word to supply here in English between 'is' and 'root'. And again, plain ole COMMON SENSE sez there are many, MANY evils done for other reasons besides lova money. This is undeniable FACT that renders all of AF's arguments against the correct translation of this verse wrong.
