[B-Greek] Caution Re: HELL

As posed this is not a proper question for B-Greek.

(1) It is anonymous -- unsigned--, contrary to B-Greek protocol.

(2) It does not point to any Greek text but seems to be asking a  
general question about what the GNT as a whole teaches.  There is no  
clear indication that the poster reads Greek or is doing more than  
asking as a reader of translations.

(3) Inasmuch as the question asks BOTH about what Greek scriptures  
say AND what translations say, it is an interpretative question  
dependent upon hermeneutical assumptions without qualification and  

I urge list-members who are inclined to respond to this to send ANY  
AND ALL REPLIES directly off-list to the anonymous poster.
