    It was a false statement by you against me because I have never ever stated that there is only one meaning of 'world' in John's Gospel. Thus your statement about my one meaning of 'world' was an invention.

    You need to provide definitions because so far you have only made assertions that 'world' has 10+ meanings in John's Gospel. You have not demonstrated this to be true. Please provide the evidence that I have asked.

    If you honestly believe that John only uses one definition for "world" in his writings, I'll provide you a link to the various examples.

    I still would like to know why they want definitions if they know them.

    When will you quit your goading me with your repetition of a false statement about my view of 'world' in John's Gospel?

    You were the one who made the statement about 10+ meanings of 'world' in John's Gospel but you have provided ZERO evidence to back up your claim. That's why I'm asking for your definitions. It's a basic and reasonable request.

    Do you believe that John uses more than one definition for "world" in his writings? If so, how many definitions does he use?

    Red herring fallacy.

    How so? You state that I am misrepresenting you, and when I ask you what you believe, you say it's a red herring.

    No red herring fallacy there, Oz. His question is apropos to the discussion you are at least attempting to have. It's a legitimate question. He's asking for no more than what you practically demanded of him.

    It is getting more and more toxic.
