It depends upon what the meaning of the word “know” is

This from Doug Phillips’ original “Statement of resignation“:

There has been serious sin in my life for which God has graciously brought me to repentance. I have confessed my sin to my wife and family, my local church, and the board of Vision Forum Ministries.  I engaged in a lengthy, inappropriate relationship with a woman. While we did not “know” each other in a Biblical sense, it was nevertheless inappropriately romantic and affectionate.

This from Doug Phillips’ recent “Clarification on Resignation“:

Some reading the words of my resignation have questioned if there was an inappropriate physical component with an unmarried woman. There was, and it was intermittent over a period of years.

I suppose it depends on what the meaning of the word “know” is.
