You're assuming a particular theological assumption here, and to justify
that it is a correct theological assumption, are suggesting a particular
linguistic claim.  To justify this linguistic claim, you need to show at least
one place where you can substantiate it, without resorting to your particular 
theological assumption.  If  you will claim that the 3ms verb "must" be 
ambiguous simply because you have a problem with God doing certain
things you're not proving anything.
