Poor grammar in scripture.

Answering Bible Difficulties – Question 21 by Don Stewart.

One of the arguments brought forth against an inerrant Bible concerns errors of grammar in the text. Since the language of Scripture does not always conform to the normal rules of grammar, it is assumed to be in error in those particular instances. A number of examples are usually given:

1. There Are Examples of Grammatical Irregularities​

There are a number of examples of grammatical irregularities in Scripture. This is especially true in the Book of Revelation. John, the author of this book, often uses a plural verb when the accepted practice was to use a singular verb. These are known as solecisms.

John uses an ungrammatical construction in describing Jesus. He wrote the following:

John to the seven churches that are in Asia: Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne. (Revelation 1:4 NRSV)​

The words, “From him who is, and who was, and who is to come” are written in very ungrammatical Greek.

Other illustrations can be given where standard grammar is not used. For example, Paul begins the third chapter of Ephesians by using a sentence that does not have a verb. This is not correct grammar.

The Bible clearly and positively affirms that there was a global flood.

Gen 7:19-20 (AKJV/PCE)
(7:19) And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that [were] under the whole heaven, were covered. (7:20) Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.

So why insist on using a weak and pointless argument based on absence of information and a double-negative?

Dead wrong, Clete.
I have not intentionally insisted on using poor grammar.
Okay, wow!

It's official. I can no longer remember a time when anyone on TOL ever changed their mind about anything, no matter what anyone said or how they said it.

I believe in a flood over the entire earth.
Color me stupid but I can't see how falling sheets of ice could be proof of it or that they would cause mass freezing.
Konkin' a wooly mammoth on the head and killing it sure.
This from the article...
Consider the work of Dr. Walt Brown, an MIT grad with a PhD in mechanical engineering, who explained the decades ago that highly pressurized water from the earth's crust could have shot up into the atmosphere before falling in frozen sheetsand that this frozen deluge would explain why so many prehistoric animals like mammoths were frozen instantly with green grass in their stomachs (grass takes mere seconds to turn brown in the acid of an elephant's stomach).

Reckon all that ice built up in a big pile miraculously missing a direct hit on them and then once they were covered, they then froze?
