    "I will take that as a compliment". Is the way I heard this said. This comming on the heal of something just said. 

    So you generally don't have to say: "I'll take what you have just ssid.."

    The elite is faking that they took the real vaccine; the real vaccine will cause spiritual and physical damage. When will the official churches start praying for the false prophet? Orthodox Christian three hand signs are different than Buddhist mudras. Ecumenism = 263 heresies; each heresy leads to hell. Orthodoxy = the only true faith; Roman Catholics tried one cup - one spoon ritual and got sick with Bubonic plague; if heresy enters Orthodox monastery then monks/nuns will get sick with flu/tuberculosis (for instance); Orthodox churches who closed for COVID or had disposable cups/spoons or dipped spoon into alcohol are no longer brides of Christ (now they serve Satan and honor Satan's new COVID religion). Don’t go into UFO to be “healed” by evil demons; demons never do good. SSN is written as a barcode/QRcode; then it's put into a chip; chip is put into vaccine; chipped people are influenced (by super computers) to receive grey plastic card World Passport with no name on it (but when they stretch their hands to get it, gov't clerk presses secret button to administer the unforgivable green 666 tattoo by isotope rays). If you reject mark of the beast (by hiding within a 10-15 people group according to saints Gabriel Urgebadze and Seraphim of Sarov), then your direct ancestors go to heaven (according to saint Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov from Ural). First vaccine shuts off your immune system; second vaccine gives you diseases; third vaccine puts your immune system back and it will start fighting the diseases and will cause death. Saint Paisios from Mount Athos said that the devil wants to deceive the rich with freemasonry, poor with communism, and believers with ecumenism. Elpidios Vagianakis said that there will be seven “mark of the beast” vaccines; reject all of them! Documents are from Satan; burn all the documents that you can find. Electronics will be used to track you. Even old broken unplugged 1970 TV set will show the evil flying antichrist using Tesla's ether. Don’t go into UFO to be “healed” by evil demons; demons never do good; always pray the Jesus prayer or to saints who help right away (like saint Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov according to whom if you reject mark of the beast, then your direct ancestors go to heaven); forgive me.

    Source(s): Money will be electronic. Gov't will say someone lost their card or it was stolen; now, they have "solution" aka "mark of the beast system"... because no one will steal your hand/forehead. Remember Book of Revelation says: mark of the beast = permanent hell; forgive me.

    probably not, but simply because the context would lead to a briefer statement.  "I will take what you said as a compliment."

    That is, the words you have written are not wrong, but the idea would rarely be stated in those words in that way.  It sounds like something that would be said by a person who speaks a primary language other than English (I know for a fact that I do the very same sort of thing when I speak French; I speak French like an English speaker).  It functions, but isn't "smooth" and natural. 

    Why not? well, that is hard to say.  We don't think about it.  Language kind of imposes a way of thinking by its very use: it organizes the brain to think in certain structures and meanings.  The second-language learner often has difficulty getting rid of the hard-wiring to the brain, even when thinking totally in the second language (not translating in the brain but actually thinking in the "New" language).  The new language still relies on the existing wiring, after all.  Needs a long time to rewire things (and rewiring can affect how the person uses his own primary language).

    I took what you said as a compliment. It's very simple.

    Depending on context, you could say “Coming from you, I take that as a compliment.”

    While "What you have said, I took that as a compliment." is correct, it would be better as: "I took what you have said as a compliment."
