Mike wrote: Guilt by association doesn't work. The JWs wrote up their own Bible, designed to accomodate their already existing religion. They are not Arminian, but they are works based. It sounds like your premise is, if you aren't a Calv KJVer, you must be Arminian.
The point made is that the JW heretics found that the Westcott and Hort adulterated and debased hybrid version was acceptable to their theology.
As for Calvinism, at least we leave God sovereign and omnipotent in our theology, unlike the RC/Arminians et al.
And; "The old truth that Calvin preached, that Augustine preached, that Paul preached, is the truth that I must preach to-day, or else be false to my conscience and my God. I cannot shape the truth; I know of no such thing as paring off the rough edges of a doctrine. John Knox's gospel is my gospel. That which thundered through Scotland must thunder through England again."â€”C. H. Spurgeon
"Salvation is of the Lord." That is just an epitome of Calvinism; it is the sum and substance of it. If anyone should ask me what I mean by a Calvinist, I should reply, "He is one who says, Salvation is of the Lord." I cannot find in Scripture any other doctrine than this. It is the essence of the Bible." CHS
I must admit that I had to ask who is SHE? When I read the headline here, only to find out that it is a rock band led by a guy called Brian???
