Rameumpton, I appreciated how you wrote this. We are reading Romans 7-13 with the family, and we read a few translations, and we still could not figure out what Paul is trying to say. I think you cut to the heart of the matter in your analysis. Thank you.
Thank you for the clarifications! I don’t recal being as confused by Romans 7-16, but I did note that we are spoiled, accustomed as we are to the language of the Book of Mormon and the writings of Joseph Smith and those following in his pattern of plain communication. More than once I’ve exclaimed “Paul is being very Greek here…!”
Listening to 1 Corinthians 1-7, it’s been fascinating to see how that epistle distorted later history. I love how the seer stone(s) allowed Joseph evidently to hear from righteous deceased scholars (e.g. Tyndale), if one has considered the translation. In that vein, I can imagine a Paul who knows what his letter did standing with Tyndale, inspiring Joseph to correct the letter in a manner Paul knows could have prevented the terrible errors his earthly understanding and communication thereof caused.
