< For mentors, you have all the ancient authors...>

Indeed you do, and some of those ancient authors, to wit John the Revelator and the LXX translators, wrote in less than proper Greek.  Who will mentor the mentors?

If writing Holy Ghost Greek was good enough for these guys, it's good enough for  me.

Hi, George,

If this was good enough for the Athenians, it's good enough for me.

George, I would be careful about the advice because it can easily turn into a justification for not learning Greek, not internalizing it like a real language. For mentors, you have all the ancient authors, just keep  paying attention  as you read and as an ancient author says something in a way that surprises you.
