I believe they do. Many good books are available on this subject. You might find it helpful to read "For the Love of the Bible" by David Cloud. It is available as an e book from Way of Life Literature.
Also, well worth listening to: "Is Every Bible Translation God's Word?" - Ian Brown http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=52006193951

(Ac. 12:4). This is the only place in which â€śeasterâ€ť appears in the Authorized Version. Some say that this should be translated â€śpassoverâ€ť and they point to this as an error in the KJV, but they are wrong. The Easter of Ac. 12:4 occurred after the Passover. We know this because Ac. 12:3 says it was â€śthe days of unleavened bread.â€ť The feast of unleavened bread followed the Passover (Nu. 28:16-25), but this Easter was after the feast of unleavened bread. It refers to a pagan holiday, probably the celebration of Tammuz, the sun god (Jack Moorman, Easter or Passover?).
Great Sermon! What kind of church is this? After listening to their sermons concerning this the pastor apologize for taking more then 30 minutes from the people siting there listening...? Weird..
Maybe some kind of sensitive seeker church.
He also mentioned that they until now had had a "policy" not allowing women leaders etc. Well that speaks for it self.. The Word of God is
NOT a policy. No wonder they can do what they done..put the Word of God in the trash.
Let us pray for them. Still time for repentance
Skeptic wrote: "killing the greatest stories of the greatest nation in history." I think it is the credibility of Christianpost it that is being killed. America has great works of literature?
What about Nathaniel Hawthorne, Edgar Allan Poe, Herman Melville, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, John Greenleaf Whittier, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mark Twain, Robert Frost, T.S. Eliot, etc, etc.?
Great Sermon! I think it is very interesting..I think it has to do a lot of how we define words..
I trust in a personal Abbba Father who can lead me by the His Spirit. And if I am lacking in wisdom I can pray and He my awesome Lord will give.. The Bible says so.. it cant be wrong, i think to say God speaks does not nessercerly mean that he is adding something to bible.. Rather to listen to that inner voice.. Get the conviction it is sanctioned from above. However we are vessels not always in his perfect will...it is a bit complicated I must admit. But in a personal relation with God I will always believe. Please continue this subject. We must learn, listen and be humble.
Did either of you who commented below actually read the article? It is a GOOD NEWS story.
It says: "Australia's High Court has OVERTURNED legislation allowing gay marriage in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). The ACT parliament passed a bill in October making the territory the FIRST PART of Australia to legalise same-sex weddings. But the national government challenged the decision, saying it was inconsistent with federal laws."
Great Sermon! What at about Roman Catholics? Are they fellow belivers?
Many evanglical treat them as fellow belivers.. In Europe ;A DEEP PROBLEM! Pastors and messengers be just as clear as you are concerning mormons inform your flock :
THEY ARE NOT.
Great Sermon! God Bless You for bringing this up to light! It will come a judge sooner or later. God is NOT pleased with this behavior.
It has been a huge problem for too long and I think it is about MONEY. Christian people love money. I am sad to say. Let us examine our hearts when we hear things like this.
Great Sermon! I think it is great of Pastor Sean to post this interview with Piper. The only importance is the Truth! And it is good to listen what godly men like Piper
belives concerning the gifts. I listen do McArthur as well . We can't just ignore 1 Kor 14 :1 that clearly encourage us to pursuit love and earnestly seak the gifts and especially the gift of profhesy..is this verse only for the Korinth?..
Great Sermon! Lucky Youth at your Church having such biblical Youth Pastor as Mc Manus. So many young people are led a way from the small path because of no true christian youth leaders.My heart goes out to them.
Great Sermon! What about Marc16: 17-20? Signs Will follow those who belive ..Our Lord says that not ONLY to the disciples there but to ALL of those who will come to be true belivers... At least that is what ny bibel says.. (And then I have read it in context) We cant cancel that just because it missuses by some.. Love for the TRUTH .or?
Great Sermon! It is the same here in Europe. End time is here. What Mr Osteen want is a message that brings in money. Money is their main goal and If you can use and add God to a message that makes people open their wallet....Why not? God needs a bit of the cake as well... It. is heresy.. Let us pray for them still time for repentence
