Hello to everyone!

I put up the question on Coptic John 1:1c in order to see if anyone would like to discuss it, that's all, no big deal here!

The BBC forum rules were slightly more ralxed, which I was used to...(it closes down soon)!

My analysis of the Greek John 1:1c and the Coptic John 1:1c, led me to believe that syntax, nuance and grammar was being ignored by some for theological reasons and when I had pointed these matters out and given many examples, Trinitarians either went silent or came back with one excuse after another, one so-called 'impartial' scholar after another, but could not show where my analysis was flawed and ignored the many examples given...! I even showed how the Rev. George W. Horner invented a special "Rule" (as did E. C. Colwell - "Colwell's Rule" c. 1934) just for John 1:1c and then proceeded to ignore his "Rule", a did Colwell, when his own analytical examples of Coptic John, proved him to be wrong, but nevertheless, like Colwell propagated misinformation and that misinformation has been banded about in books, web sites...as though Horner, like Colwell is correct, but Horner isn't correct...!

I can present my material on request and let readers decide for themselves and if they can show me, that I am in error somewhere, I will admit it and hold my hands up and become a Trinitarian again!

The rest of the board functions in an informal manner (more relaxed than the BBC), but this particular section is for a more formal debate between two people only. I'd get Lexi to more the thread to the 'bible study' section if I were you.

Hi Letusreason

I was hoping that Colin and the others that contested you from the BBC Christian topic were coming over this way to take up your challenges, and also that I could debate with him and them, because I could not continue my debates once the BBC moderators found an excuse to restrict me from posting last December… truly, an excuse, supposedly, a “reason“, an invisible one, that to this day I was never given ! I was restricted and that was that, no reason given…  

Their omission made me question their reasoning, was it fair moderation, or was it prejudice and bias against one that supported the JW view ?




Hi Lexilogio

With regards to formal debate, one on one, the EvC forum have a section for that type of debate, named “The Great Debate“. You might be able to pick up some ideas on how it is conducted…. Link below. Please scroll down to “The Great Debate“:
