Every group has their crazies and extremes, throwing out the baby with the bath water is not wise. Anyone can take the fringe to destroy the credibility of the whole but that is not a just weight or measure.
Another example of the churches desperate need to return to Sola Scriptural instead of this editorializing of God's Holy Word to fit what ever point the person desires. We dont need revival we need another reformation!
Jim attacking the KJV again...shocking, give it a rest man your arguments are weak if you like ur corrupt version cool but quit pushing that garbage on the rest of us. Thanks. The subject was the Wycliffe translators redefining words to not offend Muslims. Textual criticism and modern translation sits and lords over the scriptures instead of letting the scriptures lord over them. This is not surprising and just the beginning of what they will attempt and do because they do not respect the word of God as pure and holy...
Legalism definitely a big problem today, antinomianism, Gnosticism, and more all alive and well. Existentialism is a problem as well, the biggest cause is the wordless ness of the church. God's word is the best defense against heresy.
Jim someday you may actually read some things that are not in agreement with your position and you may find out you were wrong. Naaah! Your like an evolutionist who only listens to people who agree with them and shouts louder than the opposition if they dare to express an opposing view. You and James White deserve each other.
This is why the battle for the Bible and the reformation cry sola scriptorium is so important. We divide into camps of Christian philosophy and argue from there. But none can argue the list of scriptures I listed it is so plain, even in the king's English. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness comprehended it not. John chap 1
Jim You have never compared Bible translations or verses, texts, textual criticism, all you do is quote someone saying why they don't believe KJV is blah blah blah and then attacked anyone who believes otherwise. Study to show THYSELF approved unto GOD. if you want to believe God has not preserved His Word and that the best we can hope for is the Lockman Foundations NASB that's groovy, but for those of us who do believe God promised to preserve His Word unto every generation psalm 12:6-7 We are going to believe the Bible over any scholar and certainly over a scholar hack that has not researched, but merely parrots what others have said. A pleasure as always...
read your link, not sure who the person is that he is refuting as I have not encountered his work. From what I can ascertain it is standard response I have heard time and again. Unfortunately I have read and studied too much to buy into that. sorry nice try though
I was almost speechless reading these and then remembered I am never speechless. The 11 requirements of salvation listed were all what must I do to be saved. This list if placed as a result of salvation by grace through faith might be acceptable.mbut in order to have eternal life goes against so many scriptures I hardly no where to begin, maybe Romans, Galatians, Ephesians, Hebrews. I don't know take your pick. " to the one who works the reward is not reckoned of grace but of debt, but the one who workers not, but believeth on him that justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." Rom 4:5
