John U.K., there's already an ASV that has been put into modern English, you can see a sample of it on the "Missle" thread that was one of the offerings today, or better I can give you some examples here,
1 Corinthians 14 ? 9 So also you, unless you uttered by the tongue words easy to understand, how would it be known what is spoken? For you would be speaking into the air. 10 There are, it may be, so many kinds of sounds in the world, and none of them is without meaning. 11 If then I donâ€™t know the meaning of the sound, I would be to him who speaks a foreigner, and he who speaks would be a foreigner to me. ---WEB
I use the WEB version here when I'm on a tablet which I'm not at the moment, and since it's not copyrighted I don't have to put up the notice as I do with the The New American Standard Bible which is the most accurate translation in English.
John Y., you should use a Christian Bible such as the NASB, rather than The Roman Catholic Bible, for a variety of reasons. Oh, those verses were those used by the KJV translators to show why they needed to do a translation now hoary which came out in 1611.
Jeremiah 10:23-24 O LORD I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps. O LORD, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, least thou bring me to nothing.
Jay Jay, I give our Lord praise for your responses; may His peace fill your heart, His love guide you, and His power enable you to stand firm. It has been a blessing to have been able to speak to one another, out of love, and resolve the issue...all for His glory! Bless you dear one.
Thank you ladybug and everyone else for being so kind and understanding. Thank you also for forgiving me for my scrooge-iness if that's a word! I've been so blessed by you guys, and you're like the true family I never had. I traveled through foster home after foster home, but I never enjoyed the blessing and comfort you have shown me here. Thank you guys for being there for me. God bless you all!
I agree with the use of "flat-opening sewn binding" since perfect bound (glue on the spine) Bibles generally fall apart as soon as you start using them. I had one that had already fallen apart in the box when I ordered it. Bible quality is all or nothing these days. Bibles are either super high end and expensive, or low quality. The middle has almost disappeared. I wish more publishers would publish sewn-spine Bibles without expensive high-end leather bindings. (Cambridge is one of the last holdouts that has moderately-priced, sewn-binding Bibles in their product line. The Emerald Text edition is one of them.)
Don't buy a leather (or leather substitute) perfect-bound Bible. It will just fall apart. Usually in a few months. Get a hardback, which at least has a thicker spine to support the pages. They last much longer.
Yes General, kind of. We do not in and of ourselves control our actions. The only reason I'm typing right now is because God willed it. We are who we are, but everything we do is by God's willing it. However, God is not responsible for our sin.
the title is just a Pandora's box, but American evangelicals have been advancing wahhabism through the middle east for many years now, of course they don't know it, they call it "democracy" and things like that.
Rand Paul on CNN, "we are where we are because we armed the Syrian rebels. we have been fighting alongside al queda, fighting alongside ISIS, ISIS is now (unknown) in two countries. but here's the anomaly: we're with ISIS in Syria, we're on the same side of the war, so those who want to get involved to stop ISIS in Iraq are allied with ISIS in Syria"
McCain freedom fighters = al queda = ISIS
now all girls and women under ISIS in Iraq have been ordered to get mutilation surgery...
Tremendous Exposition! This sermon is one of a kind sermon on the very popular scripture John 3:16; Pastor teaches through the context of this verse the doctrinal stand concerning The Sovereignty of God and a defense against the Arminian free-will gospel; a gospel of an impotent idol. Every child of God has to hear this sermon to learn, how to witness and contend for the faith that we received when we are made born from above. Thank you Lord for this excellent teaching through your servant how to readily answer them that ask of our faith.
