I have a few questions. The Jewish learn to read Hebrew in order to read the Torah: The word of God. Those of the Islamic faith learn Arabic to read the Quaran: The word of God. Also, please remember that most of those of Islamic faith are not native speakers of Arabic.
So, Why don't Christian take the time to learn the Greek of the new testament?

Of the 1.4 billion Muslims 800 million are illiterate (6 out of 10 Muslims cannot read). In Christendom, adult literacy rate stands at 78 percent

The Spirit. Its revealed by the spirit otherwise it's just words regardless whether they are Greek, English Chinese or Russian.
So how about YOU read what it says in how it's revealed to the human. Or read it in Greek (says the same thing about this).
I love it how people try to make a statement thinking they are so wise and end up falling on their faces all the time. It's absolutely amazing ....and what makes ATS so much fun.edit on 4-6-2013 by MadMax7 because: (no reason given)edit on 4-6-2013 by MadMax7 because: (no reason given)
I have traveled all over the Middle East and have witnessed first hand that several Muslims could not read the Koran themselves but rely on the Cleric to TELL them what is in the Koran.

Today we have the ability to use lexicons and concordances. That wasn't the case hundreds of years ago.
