B. Ross, I didn't find anything deceitful in unprofitable servants post, and I happen to only use the KJV. Anyways seeing as how King James himself didn't do any translating, only authorized it, I don't see where his character has any bearing on the text of the KJV. I don't believe the KJV is a perfect, word for word translation,but I do believe its a better/closer translation than these apostate new versions. Also my main reason for using the KJV is that it bears the fruit of spiritual growth, and great revivals, whereas the new versions bear the fruit of apostasy.
I guess neither John Y or DanUSA likes to base their beliefs on the word of God, seeing how they like to make sweeping statements with no Scriptural support. They have been asked for chapter and verse more than once, and never present a shred of Biblical evidence.
Speaking the truth will ususally bring hate and ridicule from the lost world and religious hypocrites. Catholicism is nothing more than a pagan religion with Christian names thrown on it, and the Gospel they preach is just as foreign to Gods word as looking for salvation in the Hindu Vedas, Koran, book of Mormon, or any other false religion.
John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
1 Samuel 8:7-8 "And the Lord said unto Samuel, harken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but have rejected me, that I should not reign over them. 8 According to all the works they have done since the day I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee."
Sounds like he gave them Saul because of their wickedness to me.
No Doubt, you wrongly assume nobody on here prays for Obama because they don't post anything to that effect. Though I may post my disdain for our ungodly president, I still pray for him when I remember to (a lot of times it slips my mind). Personally, I think God gave a ungodly president to an ungodly country that wanted it that way.
Good point Delores. That's what I love about the Bible: its full of flawed characters. Even the greatest men of God still miserably failed him, and were given to great distress. Even at the precipice of utter despair unto death, like David they found encouragement in the Lord their God. Only Jesus Christ gets the glory of being perfect in thought, word or deed, having never failed God in times of great distress, even at the cross where he endured the wrath of God for mans sin.
We should be hearing from Jim soon about the Greedy Ol' Party, the inadequacy of moralism, Sams Club Republicans, Are Catholics really Christian, and how obamacare is the best thing since sliced bread.
I used an NIV for a few years, and never got anything out of it. Then the Lord opened my eyes to the truth, and I bought a KJV(Back in the beginning of this year). I've been on fire for the Lord ever since.
Jim what does the kkk, Catholics, the stars and bars, civil war, Abraham Lincoln, and Andrew Jackson have to do with the unconstitutional Obamacare, and South Carolinas desire to nullify it in their state? Just because Congress was dumb enough to pass Obamacare, doesn't mean its constitutional.
I apologize for my incorrrct assumption, but you assume I'm against being confrontationable, I'm not. Your idea of confrontation is insulting those who don't agree with you, which is wrong. My idea of Biblical confrontation is calling sin, sin and damnable heresies for what they are, no matter who gets offended.
So rather than share the Gospel with the wicked, you insult them? Way to go Steve. Perhaps you should read 1 Peter 3:15, I seem to remember something about answering with meekness and fear, not insults.
I've always found morality to the atheist's Achilles heal so to speak, because they have no rational way to justify it. Like its been pointed out, it's not that an atheist is immoral, but is reduced to absurdity in any effort to rationalize morality apart from God. They will usually use the golden rule (which is straight from the Bible), or that society or the government determines right or wrong. To which I ask them if societies determine right from wrong, was Nazi Germany wrong for the mass genocide of the Jews? After all, the governing body said it was right. I've also found it next to impossible to get them to see this absurdity, as they arbitrarily insist that its obvious what's right or wrong, but still give no rational explanation given their world view.
If sodomites are allowed to get married, it would follow that polygamy would eventually be normalized as well, seeing as they would use the same arguments. The Mormons are naturally at the forefront of this effort.
