comment How should we understand “he cannot sin” in 1 John 3:9?
No, it is not a duplicate. I am focused like a laser-beam on verse nine. Verse six helps set context, and may shed light on it, but I really want to wrap my mind around the "cannot" in verse nine. As for "raw," in the original question, I mean free of interpretive bias inasmuch as that is possible. Every translation is, by nature, also an interpretation. I'm not a Greek scholar, but know there are many here. I'm hopeful that I can get an unbiased read on this that will allow it to harmonize with earlier verses/chapters.

Thank you Sarah for the suggested edit. You're absolutely correct, and I have made that update.

@Sarah - No. I'm not, but I note that response reflected the same idea. @ Dan - Actually, I've been using StackOverflow for years. I didn't realize this site was part of that "family." Thus, I tried to merge the two accounts/logins. Indeed, I was "welcomed" to Christianity.StackExchange by WaxEagle who promptly deleted my Answer, stating it should have been a comment, but I haven't earned enough reputation there to leave a comment. I was pretty surprised by the abruptness of it.
