Without Christianity what you get is confusion, corruption and sin.
"Vietnam is one of the least religious countries in the world. According to official statistics from the government, as of 2014 there are 24 million people identified with one of the recognised organised religions, out of a population of 90 million. Of these, 11 million are Buddhists (12.2%), 6.2 million are Catholics (6.8%), 4.4 million are Caodaists (4.8%), 1.4 million are Protestants (1.6%), 1.3 million are Hoahaoists (1.4%), and there are 75,000 Muslims, 7,000 Bahais, 1,500 Hindus and other smaller groups ( 1%). Traditional folk religions (worship of gods, goddesses and ancestors) have experienced a rebirth since the 1980s." (Wiki)

Not necessarily, the "est" endings which are worthless is one of the archaic things that people identify as archaic. "Thee, Thine, ye, and thou," can have a practical use. As I pointed out by you.
This person commenting on Shakespeare who was more interested in using Elizabethan in it's proper format than the KJV translators, or so I've read somewhere. Anyway, as that musical said brush up on your Shakespheare.
Shakespeare plays have the added benefit of being acted out, so you can follow the action that is on stage and somewhat tell what is going on. Perhaps the play brochure will also explain some things. However, when you have to learn another how to read a manual, in this case God's manual, which can be done more accurately done in in contemporary English, then knowing your thee's, thine's etc. are of minor benefit when it comes to the other benefits of having that manual free of gobbledygook.

Fine observation. We look for a city, and as pilgrims in a foreign land, our citizenship is in heaven . Thinking in terms of allegiance to earthly kingdoms, might not totally square with biblical perspective.
"all died in faith... and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth ... For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country, And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned... wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he has prepared for them a city." Hebr 11
Focus developes when considering the two different words, 'patris' (country) referring to one's native country, against 'polis' (city) pointing to a new setting.
interesting description of Sodom here, her perversions came from pride, laziness, and lack of mercy towards the least of these....
"Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy." Ezekiel 16:49
Wow! Thank you for preaching Biblically on a subject most pastors won't touch with a 10 foot pole. The Lord has brought me to repentance on this matter, also. I pray for and thank God for this ministry! May the Lord continue to mightily and greatly use you and bless you.
Great Sermon! Isaiah 4:1
I wouldn't be surprised if that would be because eventually science/technology may put together some kind of robotic/android type women that men would prefer; against the typical selfish, spoiled, 'liberated', self-centered, narcissistic, irresponsible, immodest harlots that that today's culture has trained them to be.

Dave, I would simply start with looking at how the bible defines the words inspiration and scripture, not a dictionary or other resources God did not promise to preserve. Don"t trust me either, God bless

Really? Perhaps you might appreciate things differently if you consider the history of Judah. Were there God-Fearing Prophets who loved God (in obeying Him!) who repeatedly warned the people of the Judgment coming? Come on now and tell us, were there?
Were there people in Judah who practised idolatry (even to sacrificing their babies to demons), an iniquity (sin) of those who hate God? (God tells us idolatry is a sin of those who hate Him in the 10 Commandments in case you haven't read that lately)
So in the eyes of Holy God did He see Judah as a nation that loved Him or hated Him? Ever hear of the Babylonian Captivity, the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple?
I stand by my post and testify against the United States that despite a tiny remnant who do Fear God and Keep His Commandments this country that ought to love God, hates God, and has been waging an increasingly unwinnable war against Him. AND God will repay those who hate Him to their faces, including the so called churches who don't know God in their unbelieving disobedience to Him and love for sin.

Perhaps the first thing that many people identify as an archaism in the KJV is the use of â€śtheeâ€™sâ€ť and â€śthouâ€™s.â€ť The KJV uses these pronouns in order to distinguish between the second-person singular (thou, thee, thy, thine) and the second-person plural (ye, you, your, yours). The Greek and Hebrew make this distinction.
I agree on this point. That is why I respect the KJV. This is an issue to me of a language being dumbed down by modernism.
Here's a link, the KJV 1611 preface saying that they used the Septuagint and that the Apostles also did....
and for anyone interested, here's a teaching on recent fragments and their comparisons of the original Greek and which OT manuscripts the Apostles are using (which wording) in different situations. God has truly preserved His Word for this generation:
I would say anti b. That we decry the murder of any person regardless of race no matter who does it. Why aren't you upset about all murders that happen in and out of prisons, do all lives matter to you?

yep, and third mechanism of the birth control pill. will evangelicals be repentant on judgment day when they are greeted at the gates by their unborn children?
besides which, is not taking fetal cell lines into the blood for health a form of cannibalism? why do we think we are more advanced because the cannibals of old didn't have syringes, white coats and petri dishes? its the same occultism of old.
seeing that it never comes up, it would be a violation of the rules to comment on it.
seeing you continue to break the rules by spamming let me ask you a few questions.
How come in none of your posts do you decry the thousands of black children killed by their mothers in the abortion clinics and concentrate on a handful of people?
How come in none of your posts do you decry the thousands of blacks that are killed by blacks every year, their families are devastated, but it doesn't seem to bother you at all?
How come you don't decry the thousands of black mothers that are left without a husbands and fathers to their babies they have and must struggle as single moms, sometimes with multiple babies by multiple irresponsible fathers?
There were more murderers done by whites but you have chosen to emphasize blacks, how come you have no upset for the nearly 2,500 victims and their families who were murdered by black people in the latest crime data?
How come your not upset that people were booed off the stage for saying all lives matter instead of black lives matter, do you not think that all people of all races have significance?
Your outrage is selective at best and hypocritical at worst.
