    Perhaps you would like to explain how I have misunderstood Colossians 2:9?

    Please do not try to BS me as you do others. You are not fooling anyone. I know Greek very well. Let's see if you really do as you claim.

    I would like to know. I aksed you about it on the other board also. The greek seems pretty straight forward to me.

    "4138 pleroma {play'-ro-mah}

    from 4137; TDNT - 6:298,867; n n

    AV - fulness 13, full 1, fulfilling 1, which is put in to fill up 1,
    pierce that filled up 1; 17

    1) that which is (has been) filled
    1a) a ship inasmuch as it is filled (i.e. manned) with sailors,"

    Okay, that pretty much explains fullness..to be filled..That's pretty easily translated..The word you seem to miss is this one

    "2320 theotes {theh-ot'-ace}

    from 2316; TDNT - 3:119,322; n f

    AV - Godhead 1; 1

    1) deity
    1a) the state of being God, Godhead"

    wow..so literally translated..he was full of diety ..sounds like he is saying Jesus is God to me :lol:

    The next verse is better translated in my opinon as this

    "And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: "

    you are made complete..not filled with diety. Better?
