pastormelissascott dot com?
This kid shows up on Channel 15 in Cedar Rapids, every so often. She has phenomenal media savvy... I can't decide if she's a con artist or not. The message seems on task, but what is all this arm-waving and bedazzle-icious symbolism about? (Yes, it's Greek to me, too ;-)

It must be a fun religion, though. If you listen long enough, and watch the whiteboard heiroglyphics fly, you come away with the solid impression that everything YOU don't understand — i.e, all the gnarly theological stuff — SHE gets just fine. Nothing for YOU to worry about, It's All In Good Hands.

She has one tiny flaw, if that's possible — viz., she tends to elide opposing viewpoints slightly, summarizing them as "Blah, blah, blah."

I'm convinced she's a nut, if not a con. I do know she's way over her head with the Greek language, that's for sure. I feel a sweep of embarassment for her error-laden and innaccurate explanations.It's actually painful to watch her. But I am in awe how people sit there and believe her alleged translations.

As a professional translator, Greek>English>Greek, with my first language being Greek, I can tell you this woman absolutely massacres the Greek translations of the Bible.

For this reason, I was compelled to look up this "pastor" Melissa Scott, and warn the public of the unqualified Bible "translator" of Koine, Modern,or any dialect of Greek. That's all I have to say.

This Beach Bum idiot is wrong. Melissa's Greek is damn good, if a little less exciting than it could and should be. Maybe I'll write and coach her on this. -- Dr Andy Tempelman, New Hampshire
