This appears to be a response to an off-list messsage; if that's the
case it really ought not to have been answered on-list.
But in any case, please note that we do not discuss doctrinal issues
on B-Greek; if you want to continue the discussion of something more
than Greek text, please conduct that discussion off-line.
