Why is "I have been saved" accepted, but no "I was saved"?
I was saved = Ik werd gered
Hey guys. How do I know that it is Passive and not Present Perfect? I mean, how do I know if it is: "I have been saved" or "I have saved"?
I save = Ik red
I saved = Ik redde
I have saved = Ik heb gered
I have been saved = Ik ben gered
I am being saved = Ik word gered
Can this be used in a religious context?
Yes, however us Dutch people are like 50-65% atheists. You do have a biblebelt in the Netherlands though, where people are very very religious, they're called "gereformeerden" "reformed"
When you say 'biblebelt' is it a region or just a term for 'Christians or church goers?' Where can I find more information on 'church' for your country?
Biblebelt is an english term for a part of the US where people/schools/politics are more religious and conservative than in the rest.
Why "I have been saved" answer is not accepted? Instead, it says the correct answer is "I am saved". Wouldn't that be then "ik word gered"?
30/01/15 It is accepted now tenaaq
Ik word gered = I am being saved (right now)
