Hi

Please tell me whether the corrective work on a person's reflective work is good.

1) He asked the blinded man whether or not he believes. The man said that he believes. Jesus told the reason for his coming. The Pharisees asked if they are blinded. Jesus said they are blinded.

2) ...After hearing his response, they reviled him and said that you are Jesus' disciple, but we are disciple of Moses. Then, they went on to say that the man is a sinner and expelled him from their assembly.

3) ...This man who the Pharisees said is a sinner told him that the God does not hear sinners. They contended that the God hear them, the disciples of Moses.

Should be this?

Hi believer. I should stay out of this because I always get confused.

If you say something like, "I told him that God is great," you don't usually get any argument, because everyone agrees that we're talking about a continuing situation.

But if you say, "I asked him if he thinks it's going to rain tonight," everyone would agree that it sounds stupid, unless the context makes it clear that you asked him ten minutes ago.

And then there's a middle ground. "I asked him if he believes that God is eternal." He may have believed it when you asked him, but does he believe it now? In my opinion, your change to past tense in these cases is justified.

Reported speech may be different. "The man said that he believes." That's what he said, so I think present tense works here. (Help!)
