Comment to 'Ekklesia vs Church: This ain't That.'
  • Thanks David - the last paragraph of that quote says it all. "Let it be remembered that the translators had a double task to perform, not only to give an English version of the Scriptures, but so to manage that version as not to disturb the ecclesiastical order of their own communion."

    Very polite way of saying if they didn't prop up the church structure and the career clergy with their word choices, they would face dire consequences.
