Dr. Oliver's Challenge
Sunday Morning, March 12, 1916
In order to support a position which in the light of octr
day many Bible students are beginning to see is a most unrast.
sonable and unscriptural one, Dr. Oliver refers to the Greet.':
as his authority and challenges (Sunday morning, March 1&.
1916) "any Greek student on earth to disprove his statement:
—also "preacher."
We accept the challenge, not for argument's sake, but be
cause If the truth ia not clearly seen by all Christian peophs
immediately, their faith in God and His word, the Bible in
sure to be lost as a result of the "strong delusions" in the "evil
day" which has already commenced (2 Thess. 2-11; Eph, 6>Î3>.
We shall endeavor to sho\v that the theory held by Dr. Oliver
and many others positively and absolutely nullifies the grea*
ransom-sacrifice finished by our Lord at Calvary, and. is;
therefore, an "anti-Christ" spirit or doctrine. It Is because
of wrong views of what the ransom-price really is, what raas
is ransomed from, and the full benefits derived therefrom, that
many of the Lord's people have lost their faith and have drifted
into "evolution" and "higher criticism," etc.
We quote the texts, the translation of which in the common'
version (King James) Dr. Oliver maintains is not valid accordr
ing to the Greek: "Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: EVerjr
spirit that confesscth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, is
of God; And every spirit that contesseth not that Jesus Christ
is come in the flesh, is not of God: And this is that spirit at
anti-Christ, whereof ye have heard that it should come" (I John.
4:2, 3). "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who
confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh." This fee.
a deceiver and an anti-Christ.
Dr. Oliver's claim is: (1) That the Greek words in these
texts rendered "is come" signify is coming. (2) That with
this change the Apostle's words would signify that any teaching:
which denies that the second advent of our Lord will be: in
the flesh is an anti-Christ spirit.
We reply to this claim; (1) It is true that the- word
erchomai, the root word from which is derived eleluthoia (I
John 4:2) and erchomenon (2 John 7) signifies «omlng or
arrival; but whether the coming referred to is a past or
future event must be determined by the construction- of tfie.
sentence, just as we may use our English word "coming" iE.
referring to matters past and future and say, "Faith in. the
first coming of our l ord is general among Christians, but not.
so general is the faith in his second coming." The context:
proves beyond peradventure that an occurrence of the past is
referred to, for the record is "many deceivers are gone forth""
or "went forth," and the two statements quite evidently refecr
to the same thing.
(2) This claim is put forth by some who have an object id
claiming that the text refers to a future event; they claim that
our Lord is not "changed" to the divine nature, that he is stfll
flesh and that he will continue to be a man, a human, fleshly
being, and bear the, scars of his human sufferings to all eter
nity. They deny, nr at least ignore, the many Scriptural cUscia'
ratlons to the effect "Him hath God highly exalted"'; "Mow
the Lord is that Spirit," and "Though we have known Ghxisr.
after the flesh (yet) henceforth know we hi m(so) no more"
(Phil. 2:9; 2 Cor. 3:17, 5:16). Their wish to find some Scrip
tural statements to support their unreasonable and unscrip
tural position deceives them as respects these passages. In
deed, we may say that the vast majority of Christian people
hold this erroneous view, among them nearly all who have ever
had anything to do with translating the Scriptures.
But we will buttress our position by quoting the criticisms
of these texts by Prof. J. R. Rhinehart, Ph. D., professor of
languages in Waynesburg College (Cumberland Presbyterian/:
After quoting the text of I John 4:2 and 2 John 7, Prof. Rine
hart says; (1) "The foregoing quotations are from the Em
phatic Diaglott of Wilson, purporting to be from the original
Greek text of the New Testament. (The writer has a> copy: of
this excellent work.) The word eleluthota is the accusative,
singular masculine, of the second perfect participle of the verlr
erchomai, having the same relation to this verb that any other
perfect participle has to its verb. It stands with the verb
homolegei in indirect discourse, and represents a finite, perfect
tense, according to ordinary Greek syntax. (Godwin's Greek:
Grammer, 1588, 1283.
"The following translation of the first quotation is. there
fore, essentially correct: 'Every spirit that confesseth that
Jesus Christ has come in the flesh, is of God.' "'
(2) The wori erchomenon in the second quotation Is ther
accusative, singular, masculine, of the present participle of the
verb erchomai, and is subject to the same rules of syntax as
the word above. Its relation to «eiselthon through liomoto
gountes, as well as the context, justifies its translation as of
past time. (Ibid, 1289.)
"The translation of the second quotation, therefore, is prop
erly given as follows: 'For many deceivers went forth into the.
world—those who do not confess that Jesus Christ did ocmei fs.
the flesh.' "
No Greek scholar, we believe, will ever he found ta contra
diet this definition, even though he hold the second coming of
Lord in the flesh, and might thus have a preference for ».




construction favorable to his conceptions.
Finally, we notice that as a confession that Christ camr,
in the flesh at his first advent is essential to a proper belief
in the ransom, and a denial of that fact means a denial of thf
ransom (because otherwise he could not give a corresponding
price for man), so all who believe that Christ is a man since
his resurrection and that he will come a second time as a mar
are thereby denying tiic ransom: for if our Lord is still a mar»,
he either did not give his manhood as our ransom, or, giving,
it for three days, took it back again—took back the redemption
price and thus vitiated the purchase. But on the contrary, the
purchase was final ; our lord's humanity never was taken back
Him hath God highly exalted and given a name and nature far
above angels, principalities and powers and every name that is
named (the Father's alone excepted). He is no longer a mar
nor in any sense like us; we if faithful shall be "changed"
and made like him and "see him as he is"—not was (1 .1 nl.xt
3:2). (See Scripture Studies, Vol. V., page 296.)
Yours sincerely for truth,
Chairman Associated Bible Students.
