    • Thank you for the link to Brother James Melton. Both of those links re-directed me to a Facebook page. I do not use Facebook so I found a link to a website link. http://www.biblebelievers.com/jmelton/  
    • I agree with you. The root words are important to understanding what is written. I know just enough Chinese to realize that there are words in that language that cannot accurately be translated in one English. For instance the Chinese word, quanxi, can not be translated accurately in one word. It would take several paragraphs to get an idea of its real meaning. The same is true of numerous Greek and Hebrew words. The Greek word for sin can be translated as: Evil Bad Offense Transgression Guilty Stray And there are more English words that can be used for this Greek word. None of these words bring out the meaning of 'missing the mark'. Of course, 'missing the mark' is three words.  English is limited with only one word for 'love.' Greek has at least four words that must be translated as 'love'. But the English word does not capture the essence of these Greek terms. Now, I am not an expert. But I know enough to know that meaning is lost in any translation.   Blessings. 
    • It depends on who has admin access to the YouTube channel.  If he has admin access it’s super easy to change the video title.  It only takes a couple minutes. The thumbnail banner would be done during the video editing process, prior to upload.  I would expect he’d have some say over titles, given that they represent his sermons. Mind you, I am not really bothered by his titles, nor am I trying to put him down.  I know I referred to them as “click-baity,” but I actually kind of get a kick out of them!  They make me chuckle.  I guess I’m odd, that way!
    • I’d like to think that is the case, but based on the way he talked about the languages he seems to express a sentiment that I have seen many other express and he seems to have a disdain for the study of biblical languages. Its very rare to see someone attack Hebrew and Greek lexical study and to yet somehow still believe the languages are profitable. 
    • I'm pretty sure he is referring to Greek and Hebrew studies that are often done without regard to the immediate context and biblical understandings. Such as those who go to the Greek understanding of "hell" "hades" "tarturus" etc while not considering the biblical understanding. Many study the language etymology above all biblical consideration to the contrary of the general, cultural, alternate meanings of a language that actually have little to do with the textual usage. Word meanings do have their place but a generic study of a word alone can only take the reader so far in understanding the biblical concept.
