From a Christian world view, he is of course lacking, but in many respects arent we all...
From a political world view, i would also assert he is found wanting, he has all but abandoned USA allies in Israel.His foreign policy is peicemeal at best. He condoned the stirring up of local right wing fascists in Ukraine to kick out an albeit inept government, but a nevertheless Democratic government all for USA self political interest. Regardless of his shortcomings , his anti Christian agenda, i am.convinced if believing Christians organised concentrated prayer The Lord may have intervened more. I say the above(in regard to praying for our political masters) i know believers in the UK whom rarely if ever pray for our government, self included...... Maybe we oftentimes get governments we deserve....

Brothers and Sisters I haven't studied DSS myself, but its not going to be much diff, because God has preserved His Word. I didn't the comment yet about growing more in the KJV than other versions. I can certainly see why a pastor would choose the KJV, memorizing in it seems easier to me and that is the best way to learn the Word is for it to remain in the heart and mind. This is a conversation is a joy to have.
There are many reformed seminaries who use the KJV in assembly but teach the original languages to pastors. Now many Baptist pastors do not have that background, use the KJV and serve the Lord with great boldness. the original languages and backgrounds bring out understanding to us. Much of what we just commonly hear in sermons today comes from these kinds of studies.
if any want to study something interesting from the Lordship of Christ position, is to the dead sea scrolls and the communities at that time, their protests of gross corruption in the temple system. It seems Christ came to do something monumental, a people that could go anywhere with the Holy Spirit, that He would preserve through tribulation.
Like the Word of God, He also preserves His people, so I'll move on. Thank you.

The RV of 1881 was a very bold move, but very few realised the significance of it. Since then, it has taken a very long time to make any more bold moves with the Bible, indeed it has been a little here, a little there. You will remember that I said the NIV was a mere stepping stone to bigger things. And what do we have now, in the TNIV? And what will we have in ten years time, twenty years time? Will there be a Bible at all? Oh yes, so long as we have a TR Bible. ______
John, since I have not experienced the same things as you have, such as the pew bible different than the preacher's, it might be more useful to me if you could personalize your position. If you would not mind, go back to my questions earlier today. Thanks, bro.

I wonder what lesbian women who are in a public bathroom are going to feel when they have a man come in who says he "identifies" female and watches them. will they call the police? will a normal family man outside hear their cries for help and come help them when it is perfectly in his bounds to pretend he is a female and stands there while they disrobe?
I wonder what sodomite men who took the girl child from a heterosexual bond are going to do when she is being approached in the bathrooms by men who "identify" as a lesbian female.... will they protect the little girl?
perversion always leads to the violence on innocents, can they not see what they are unleashing?
Hey Brother Saint Christopher, did you watch American Ninja Warrior last night? Only 2 people completed the course, and one was a Messianic Christian. The Lord blessed him and helped him. Other guy had a cross around his neck. Could be a brother too.
