How egchriō is used in the New Testament

 “I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see.” [Rev 3:18 NASB]


Here we once again see people being given advice to anoint their eyes with eye salve. No mentions of Church leaders.
