Hi Dan

In you reply # 12 you said Romans 16:16 had "God".  The text says "Christ."  My point remains in force: if in Rom.16:16 it is assemblies of Christ (plural) WHAT would the singular be??  Assembly of Christ of course.  I think BOTH of us know YOU are dodging the question.

Thinks for the spelling lesson on ekklesia.  HOWEVER if you had taken the time to note my reply #12 I DID spell the word ecclesia BEFORE spelling it with 2 cs.  Further evidence you are desperateliy trying to dodge the issue. 

I gave you a brief history on how the word "church" came in use.  That too you avoid.

God bless,

duval

Hi Dan P

No comedy at all Dan, except the fact you will not handle Rom.16:16.  It indeed would be hilarious were it not so SAD!

Best wishes Dan

Hi Dan

While it is call "church" in our English more often than any other word thats NOT all the facts.  Paul said "churches of Christ" in Rom.1616.  Again I ask since I didn't get an answer the first time, If they are "churches of Christ" in the plural  WHAT would they be in the singular?Huh?:"

Or, how about "church of God" in Acts 20:28?Huh?  Need I go on?

 Hi duval and if you look up the Greek text for plural or singular , watch how i spell it  ,  EKKLESIA  ,  and just because in English it has Churches  does not make it so !!

 Here is one for you to  TRY  and understand ,  Translation are  NOT  INSPIRED  and there is no thing as  DOUBLE  INSPIRATION  ,  do you read Huh

Hi Dan

Well Dan there you go again messing with the truth to your own destruction. 

You wrote:  "_ _ _ AND IF YOU LOOK UP THE GREEK TEXT FOR PLURAL OR SINGULAR, WATCH HOW I SPELL IT, EKKLESIA, AND JUST BECAUSE IN ENGLISH IT HAS CHURCHES DOES NOT MAKE IT SO!!"

I have read the Greek text and there is a PLURL before Christ in Rom.16:16.  I shall provide you with the spelling for  the plural of EKKLESIA, its:  'EKKLASIA'.    The plural may be found  (besides Rom.16:16) in such places as:  Acts 15:41;  I Cor.7:17; IICor.8:19; I Thes.2:14 and II Thes.1:4 for a few examples for there are others.  You may learn this from Thayer, pg.196.

The name you  gave this topic is ''WHAT IS THE NAME OF THIS CHURCH?"  Again I ask what you refuse to answer:  If in Rom.16:16 they are called "churches of Christ" in the plural, WHAT WOULD THEY BE CALLED IN THE SINGULAR??  Either way you go, plural or singular my answer to  the question of YOUR topic is correct!  Now DEAL with it!

While you do, if you do, God bless---duval

 Hi duval and when I am wrong I am glad to admit it .    The Greek text , that I check left out the letter i , and should be spelled  EKKLESIAI  , 

 #1 , Is in the  NOMINATIVE  CASE  or the case of the subject  .

 #2 , It , then is in the plural , because of the ending that my translation left off .

 #3 , It is a Feminine noun

 #4 , The Article is  AI  and that was a clue I did not see .  dan p

Hi Dan

So again I ask: If they were called churches of Christ in the plural ( Rom.16:16) what would they be in the singular??

Or, if you prefer: If they were called assemblies of Christ in the plural ( Rom.16:16 ) what would theiy be in the singular??

Remember, its your thread on the name of the church, assembliy or called out. Please deal with it.
In Christian love,
duval

God bless,
