Only to an unthinking textual liberal like you!
Hey brother,

I was chuckling at Jim's comment too. Perhaps Jim can explain to us how a discipline which is entirely subjection can ever be "right". But, then again, Jim likes dealing in opinions.

Now, some will insist, "But these are small matters".... In reply, let me say first, I do not think obscuring the Deity of Christ (as the KJV does at Titus 2:13 and 2 Peter 1:1) and virtual blasphemy against the Holy Spirit by repeatedly referring to Him as "it" are small matters.
The ignorance of your heroes is breathtaking..... and you willingly make their errors your own without a second thought.

The third person of the trinity, which God promised in Jeremiah and Ezekiel, in the Hebrew (ruwach) is feminine gender.

The third person of the trinity in Greek (pneuma) in neuter gender.

God the Father and Son are obviously masculine gender.

Therefore, the few instances where the KJV translators referred to the HS as "it", they properly did so because there was no contextual warrant to objectively determine if the gender should be masculine or feminine.

If you would spend more time searching these things out for yourself and less time spewing out your ignorance, you'd know this.

@ Lurker Yes, I've spent some time in Deut.32 and just looked at Romans 15:10
I have continued to consider the verse with the helps I have; related to the original language.
Hey sister,

I'd like to offer another help if you aren't already aware of it. Blue Letter Bible is a most excellent resource with many tools. Like you, I don't know Hebrew or Greek but much can be learned from the lexicon. Also, commentaries; many different versions available; verse by verse comparisons of different versions, cross references, etc.

I can't do hyper links to click on but here is the address:

http://www.blueletterbible.org/

Or you can just enter BLB in your search engine and it should bring it up.

Blessings to you, sister. I appreciate your Berean spirit.

I read your post and the prophets you quote speaking of Christ to come. There is no greater treasure than Jesus Christ freely offered to every nation in the gospel. However, I reread the text in context and there were a couple of verses that came to my attention. I do not know the Hebrew, I compared Scripture with Scripture.
Thanks for your reply, sister Mourner. No problem if you see the verse differently than I. You did your due diligence and I respect that. My problem is with people like Jim who constantly run off at the mouth as though they are the smartest person in the room but in fact are parroting someone else.

As for the original language, the entire verse was translated from 6 Hebrew words so its understandable commentators appealed to immediate context to exegete the meaning. But, that this verse points to Christ in spite of the contextual timeline is the norm in the prophets, not the exception. Have a read of the song of Moses in Deut 32. It begins when Israel entered the PL but ends with God turning to the Gentiles in Paul's day to provoke the Jews to jealousy. Deut 32:43, cf. Rom 15:10.

. . .

Dorcas, Thanks for the link. I skimmed the transcript and encourage anyone with an open mind to have a listen.

Lurker, it doesn't matter what version of the Bible you use, these fellows were using the KJV and this is what they say, blah, blah.......
Take your marching orders from commentaries if you're too lazy to do the work. As for me, I could not care less what men say. I care about what God meant and the KJV delivers the proper meaning regardless of how many commentaries and modern versions got it wrong.

It's telling you had no answer to my challenge before my reply to Mourner. It tells me you have no original thoughts of your own. Everything you profess to know is on loan from someone else. Pity.

I looked up Scripture and checked context and referred to trusted teachers:

Isa 13:12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.

M. Poole (teacher) gives his understanding of the meaning of Isa. 13:12 in context: "The city and nation will be depopulated, that few men will be left in it."

While I have great respect for Matthew Henry, I disagree. The NASB translators rendered the verse as they did because of the timeline of context; end of the Babylonian captivity. But the same timeline exists in Isaiah 11, Zechariah 6 and Amos 9:

Isaiah 11:10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. (cf. Rom 15:12)

Zech 6:12 Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD.

Amos 9:11 I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old (cf. Acts 15:15-17)

The "man more precious than fine gold" is Christ Paul preached. The KJV gives the sense God intended.

Just a quick hello to brother Lurker. I appreciate why you'd want to do that bro. I'm only sorry that for health reasons I had to shut down all communications. Even now typing these posts is a very real effort. But when I'm recovered enough, I will resume email correspondence and now that I've had an opportunity to read what you'd previously sent me, maybe we can pick up the thread again, begging your patience with me for what may appear stupid questions from time to time!
Sorry to hear your health has been a problem, brother, but glad to hear you expect recovery. I'll keep you in my prayers and we can talk whenever you feel up to it. Take care of yourself.

Gentlemen, just to point out a couple of things.
Slippery weasel. So now you duck under the cover of a handful of words which presently don't mean what they did 400 years ago.

I quoted two versions (KJV vs. NASB) of the same verse; pointed out the polar opposite meanings the translators set forth and followed up with very specific questions. If you are unwilling or unable to respond with specific answers, you hold no high ground to make the sweeping claims and condemnations you continually make. You want the freedom to launch your venom with no responsibility to defend what you claim. No wonder Neil left the forum after spending so many years trying to keep you in check.

I suggest you switch to NASB.......
Not to prolong this version slugfest, but I have a challenge for you, Jim. Two versions of the same verse follows:

Isa 13:12 KJV I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.

Isa 13:12 NASB I will make mortal man scarcer than pure gold And mankind than the gold of Ophir.

Two versions of the same verse. One speaks of a single man and the other speaks of mortal mankind. One speaks of making one man more precious than fine gold and the other speaks of making mortal mankind scarcer than pure gold.

Obviously both versions can't be right. Which one gives the sense God intended? And how do you make that determination?

To assist you a bit, I'll offer another verse which provides contextual relevance:

Lam 4:2 KJV The precious sons of Zion, comparable to fine gold, how are they esteemed as earthen pitchers, the work of the hands of the potter!

I was going to post the NASB version of Lam 4:2 but it is of no help at all. As messed up as the Isaiah text.

. . .

Hey Observer.

Good to see your posts. I hope all is well with you. As for me, I've become an occasional poster. Too busy with other things.

Blessings to you and yours.

I found this statement helpful Lurker when I considered what I heard yesterday that B. Mc C posted from D. Chamberlin.
[....] How important it is to be well grounded in the Scripture in a day of so many different voices, making conflicting claims. 1 Jh4:1
Praise the Lord that some value came of my post.

I can't say anything good or bad of Jason Cooley not having listened to his sermons. I did notice, however, that his church is called "Old Paths Baptist" so I see what you are saying.

I thank God for you and all the sisters who post freely here as it was not always so on SA.

And dear sister Jessica Dawson, if you happen to read this, please know you have long been in my thoughts and prayers and will continue to be so. I have your picture and news article saved but even without them you will never be forgotten.

The Lord bless you all.

Too bad the spiritual truth of this text is lost on Cooley and, through him, on you as well. But I do respect your zeal to speak out against the evils of porn. It is a debilitating cancer in our society.

After citing a dozen Bible passages:

And that modern porn =Alistair Crowley's satanic rituals.
But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye
b------ and not sons.
Heb 12:8
Referred to by Pastor Cooley clearly-as. Ref to pervs who need to repent.
A b*****d is an illegitimate son.

John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Perhaps you misunderstood Cooley. If not, I'd recommend you be careful to test what he teaches as a Berean. There are ample biblical texts which speak to se*ual perversion without twisting ones that don't. In fact, one text is ample from God's perspective but doesn't make for an hour long sermon or sell a book.

Lurker,
Understanding you to be both male and my elder, I respectfully submit that you misrepresent here what I believe as a postmil.
I didn't present anything to misrepresent. I simple commented on a clip of the article which I found to be strange. Perhaps the writer of the article is mistaken regarding the post-mil beliefs or the contrast between pre/post has been exaggerated? Here is the clip again:

"Whereas postmillennialism believes that Christ will return to earth when the gospel has triumphed over unbelief and conquered the globe, premillennialists aren't holding their breath. Premills teach that the world will slide from bad to worse until it is so irrecoverably bad that only Jesus can fix it. That will be his cue to return and establish a rule of peace, righteousness, and sanity in the courts."

From the article: "Whereas postmillennialism believes that Christ will return to earth when the gospel has triumphed over unbelief and conquered the globe, premillennialists aren't holding their breath. Premills teach that the world will slide from bad to worse until it is so irrecoverably bad that only Jesus can fix it. That will be his cue to return and establish a rule of peace, righteousness, and sanity in the courts."

This is strange. Postmils apparently don't realize the mil reign will end with another tribulation on the order of the one which precedes the mil reign.

While I don't agree with the pretrib/premill rapture theory, I do agree with their premise "the world will slide from bad to worse until it is so irrecoverably bad that only Jesus can fix it." However, Jesus won't come to "fix"...... He'll come to lead captivity captive and separate the sheep from the goats.

You need to duke it out with "Left Arm". He is the one who says it is a sin to not carry an AR15, not me. (Personally, I could not care less but I do care that you both are at the ready to pervert God's truth to uphold your pet hobby horses.) Maybe if you two bang on each other's heads long enough, you may both come to your senses........... but then again, maybe not.

1st question was answered by my post:
This command of the Lord is in clear language of Luke 22
Lots of the Lord's clear commands have a history of being ignored by the church.
So I am not found guilty of enabling you to continue your perversions of scripture on this site, I'll close my comments by quoting the apostle John......

Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

**** And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.****

And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us. (1 John 3:21-24)

........ and acknowledging your right to be wrong.

My questions await answers........

"A new commandment? Commencing from that time till He comes again? For all Christians worldwide? If so, produce the evidence every disciple and apostle from that point forward obeyed what you are trying to peddle here. And what about countries which don't have the right to bear arms? National disobedience to a clear biblical command? Or maybe its a suggestion? How many other mere suggestions can you produce from the bible?"

Add to those questions: Are professing Christians who don't buy, own and carry a weapon (AR 15) committing a sin? How long of a grace period is allowed after a more "sophisticated" weapon is available before failure to upgrade becomes a sin? (If a line of questioning becomes absurd, its an indication the premise is absurd). And finally, where does God command the bible must be interpreted literally?

While I believe little finger overstepped by saying the right was 'definitely not biblical,' you also overstepped in the admonishment.
To demand repentance, the burden is on you to provide conclusive evidence of such a right.
After re-reading your comment, it appears I misunderstood your point. You apparently assumed that since I reject the idea that the right to bear arms is unbiblical, that I believe it to be biblical. Not the case.

My view is the bible is silent on the matter and any attempt to justify either the right or prohibition of the right to bear arms from scripture is a perversion of scripture, plain and simple. You would have known this if you read my earlier comments 7/15/15 11:07 AM and 7/15/15 11:59 AM to "Left Arm".

Sorry for any confusion.
