Imagine my surprise! I wrote 20 good ( I thought) pages about 10 texts which call Christ God. This was to be the first chap of six. I interacted in these pages with such difficulties as why the punctuation of the RSV in Rom 9:5 ( Christ.God) or the JW translation of Jo 1:1 ( a god) are incorrect and why in Tt. 2:13 both nouns refer to Christ according to the Granville Sharp Rule. The harder stuff I put in endnotes, and at the front I listed 13 objectives to be accomplished while reading( I'm a retired school teacher, so I like objectives for lessons). So,I thought it would be suitable for either adult SS or individuals . All in all, I thought it was a pretty interesting and useful read! I mean who can read enough about the Person of Christ...huh? I even had a page or two of illustrations for those with attention span problems! So, I handed it out to 8 pastors and two layfolks and asked, " Is it readable? Is it meaningful"?? Is it useful??? Please look at it and let me know. Meanwhile comes a knocking on my door, and there stands two Mormon (Utah) elders. "Ha!" says I. Instead of listening to them I hand them copies of my little writing. I think to myself , "They will go away and not return because my writing exibits convincingly Christ's true deity." So, two weeks go by. NOT ONE of my conservative Christian friends says even a word about what I wrote. "I'm a bum writer" I thought. NNE likes it! Imagine my surprise , then, when at the door reappear the same two Mormon elders. They had excitedly read what I wrote! We sit outside and talk about Christ for two hours. EG, they ask to see my Greek Testament and also my Greek Septuagint from which I elicited my argumentation on Jo 8:58. "Show us," they say, " the Greek of 'I AM' in John 8:58 and that it is just as the EGO EIME in Ex 3. "Explain to us," they ask, the effect of the Article, Substantive, kai, Substantive when the substantives are singular and in the same case (as in Tt 2:13) . Such a desire to learn!!! But from my 10 Baptist friends nary a word and no feedback. Hmmm... . So, after this little test I sit and reflect on the possible meanings of this event where 2 out of 2 Mormons but 0 out of 10 Baptists seemingly like my writing about Christ: a)) I'm a lousy writer, and should stop feeling sorry for myself b)) Some Baptists, even pastors, are lousy students. c) both a) and b) d) I should should write just for Mormons.
