Grammar Lesson for ChristianTruthHammer

June 26, 2009

This is a response to ChristianTruthHammer and his “simple grammar lesson for James White and his followers.” In this response I respectfully suggest four grammatical-exegetical points that our critic should have thought of before he posted his video.

1) “Active” is a voice, not a tense;

2) The verb to know is not a “being” verb, although it is sometimes a “stative” verb;

3) Some verbs – like “know” – can be either dynamic or stative depending on the context; and

4) In this context, the verb “foreknow” is dynamic, just like the verbs “predestine,” “call,” “justify,” and “glorify,” each of which has the same subject and object as “foreknow.”
