In another thread it came through that some people think that the non-use of italics in the ESV for "to be" in James 2:5 is dishonest and changes the meaning of the verse. My response with the underlying Greek is below.
You need to think through your theology here a bit.
First, you just said, again, that the standard for formal equivalence is italics but then scream that isn't what you say when I challenge you on it.

Which Bible translation is your "go to," "every day," "read the most" Bible?
Which Bible translation is your "go to" choice or preference when you're seeking a more "formal equivalence" rendering of a particular Bible passage?

Thank you for your assistance!
Is the NET Bible formal equivalence or functional equivalence?
I'd appreciate it hearing your thoughts on this. Thank you.
I ask you all to be as careful with terms as you can be. Our Calvinist brethren often denounce conflation of terms. We are not talking about election here. The thread is about predestination unto salvation. And please define terms with cross-references, not general one-liners.
