Rolling Stone--Tana Genava wrote: Even as it moves at the pace of an international thriller, War on Drugs smartly lays out the shocking hypocrisy of US drug policy. Take Bill Clinton's two signature, now-infamous accomplishments: the Crime Bill and NAFTA. The former-President's anti-crime legislation flooded American cities with more cops and upped mandatory minimum sentences for drugs, causing America's prison population to explode. At the same time, by loosening border restrictions between the US and Mexico, NAFTA helped drug traffickers move massive amounts more product into the US. The trade agreement has been called a "deal made in narco Heaven" â€“ and there's evidence Clinton was well aware of that potential outcome.

1. As an early convert, not native English speaking in a modern Evangelical setting, your objections about the KJV can be understood. However, presently, at mature level, dispensing with this version implies giving in into pernicious ecumenical modernism, at the altar of relativism and convenience, both things not conducive when dealing with something as serious as the words of God
So while the supposed scholars of our day rest and abide in the modernist camp, it is safer to learn the few anachronisms of that version and get acquainted with its peculiarities than to get lost in a sea of man-lead subjectivism with questionable agendas
2. The Old Latin Bible is the translation that faithful separatists used in history against Jerome's RC biased version

Jim Lincoln Slanted inaccuracies about history are lies. Regarding Bible work, no one has been more Rome-inclined than Westcort and Hort

Still a recent convert from Catholicism, I joked to my classmates that we needed a priest to interpret it, because that original copy was un-readable. God used it mightily throughout history, missionaries taught it and translated it into other languages, Bible schools like Bob Jones were founded upon it, but it is not a perfect translation of Greek and Hebrew, and it is not written in the heart language of your modern English speaker.

So James White is an ardent defender of the perfect word of God the perfect KJV? I thought they were still on the snail-paced century old caravan with a never ending story of correcting and perfecting the Westcott-Hort fake modern babel Bibles for modern man, a goldmine for publishers. Bad caravan full of bad stories, but with excellent story tellers.
I agree with Adriel that the Psalms should be sung more in the Church.
However, though I love and respect those dear brethren and sisters who believe that we should sing Psalms only, I have a problem with this position in that the Psalms are looking forward to Christ, to what He will do.
We, however, are looking backward to what He has already done.
There are also other "psalm" like portions of the Word of God that can be sung, such as the song of Moses in Deuteronomy, there is a chapter of the prophet Isaiah, and of course the famous Magnificat of Mary and Simeon's Song amongst others.
Also it means that I could never sing the words Jesus or Christ, the Names of my Saviour, as these words appear only in a hidden form in the Psalms, and in the OT.
Great Sermon! I recently joined the Puritan Board online and on my introduction I discussed the theme of spiritual warfare, and was referenced to your sermon. Incidental? Providential? Regardless, I felt it was a lovely sermon, and although Middleton isn't the most convenient of places to reach, I will try to visit sometime soon!
John yurich, Scripture says you shouldn't even eat with those that say they're saved yet practice idolatry. Roman Catholicism is idolatry personified. Ask pastor Steve and would you kindly tell us what he says ?
