It appears to be the clone of the very church He separated from. Henry VIII, once he had appointed himself head of all the English churches(just like a pope), kept the Roman Catholic system of bishops, deacons and the like for a very good reason. That system allowed him a "chain of command" necessary for any bureaucracy to function. This system passed intact to his heirs.
John for JESUS wrote: Flesh always means flesh in Scripture. You should look the word up in the dictionary. So I guess I can add "flesh" to the long list of words that Calvinist don't believe is literal? Lol

I noticed in Tyndale's translation he states this, "For God so loveth the worlde yt he hath geven his only sonne that none that beleve in him shuld perisshe: but shuld have everlastinge lyfe." This is a more accurate translation than the KJV's 'whosoever'. In the original, it's 'pas ho pisteuŇćn'- meaning 'all the believing' or 'everyone believing'. In other words, it is a specific group, those who believe. It isn't a random bunch who may or may not choose Jesus. This is where the translations can lead one to faulty understandings. sources - http://www.biblestudytools.com/tyn/john/3.html http://biblehub.com/interlinear/john/3-16.htm

Personally, I believe most possessions are misdiagnosed, or simply people playing the role while the exorcism is going on. The real ones...I believe that satan does cast out satan in order to give the appearance of holiness and power from on high in order to keep people within a false system, or cause them to gravitate towards it because if they have the power to cast out demons, God must be with them afterall, right? Satan's a crafty one

Anyways he lives three doors down the street, and in the same breath as saying he hates those crazy born again Christians, asked me for a bible, lol I explained that's what I was, born again, he said no way mate,you don't act like aog apostolic reformed, type nuts, this is a true story, I speak with utter truth. Ironically fitted in with this thread. Hooroo mate
Good on you Bro. Dave! So great to hear stories like that.....I am sure that NT will find the eyes to see.
Well worth the purchase. The 1536 edition is a better translation than the 1526 by Tyndale's own admission.
Chris, I have done the same for the past 5 years with the IPOD as I work for myself as well. I listened to maybe 80% of all the sermons Martin LLoyd Jones preached, 6 years worth of the baptist pastor that was local(he moved on to Alabama) and too many others to list.
But I agree with you on the quiet study with an open bible and an 'open mind' to be taught by His Word. Never was I taught more than when this was the case as opposed to someone else attempting to do what God said He would do.

Dave, Have you ever read a Tyndale NT version? It is his original translation into English from the Greek. I was really amazed at how more "modern" it read as opposed to the KJV(which is 90% of the Tyndale translation I reference.)
connor wrote: Dave I doubt he's any hard on John, I know Christians that exercise his attitude and the church they attend isn't healthy, I don't think anyone likes a self righteous person, they are more interested in pointing out flaws rather and guiding someone, tearing down rather than building up, they'll focus on intellect rather than godliness, or equate intellect with godliness. Steve, that was funny. Kev & James, do you have the Blue Letter Bible app?
Kev wrote: Hey thanks Brother James always looking for exciting bible studies. I will be checking that out. I use a KJV app that I bought for my smart phone it has word/phrase searches. I definitely will also check out that website as I'm wanting to change my bible studies from phone to computer. Thanks for the nudge. I always get a lot out of them. God bless Brother!
The Chrome book I believe you mentioned you had would be better than the phone in my opinion. I have had one for a few months and it works well for things like that. Maybe your app can work on your cpu?

The false prophets have great signs and wonders.
John 10:5King James Version (KJV) 5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
Interesting comments Bro. and praise God on your Home Depot deliveries of His Word.
Could not help but see that the term 'stranger' Would be a great term to search out. I know it may be obvious to what it means but perhaps there is more to it in regard to the voice of........what is transfigured into an angel of light.
2 Cor. 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
I am not sure what means you use to search out terms but I know the blb.org provides quite a platform to work from.
