‚ÄúThat ‚Äėas the credit of the old Books‚Äô ([Jerome] meaneth of the Old Testament) ‚Äėis to be tried by the Hebrew Volumes, so of the New by the Greek tongue,‚Äô he meaneth by the original Greek. If truth be tried by these tongues, then whence should a Translation be made, but out of them? These tongues therefore, the Scriptures we say in those tongues, we set before us to translate, being the tongues wherein God was pleased to speak to his Church by the Prophets and Apostles.‚ÄĚ preface to KJV 1611
"The translation of the Seventy dissenteth from the Original in many places, neither doth it come near it, for perspicuity, gravity, majesty; yet which of the Apostles did condemn it? Condemn it? Nay, they used it, (as it is apparent, and as Saint Jerome and most learned men do confess) which they would not have done, nor by their example of using it, so grace and commend it to the Church, if it had been unworthy of the appellation and name of the word of God.‚ÄĚ preface to KJV 1611

pastors will be told they have to do sodomite marriages or to shut down their 501c3 corporation. they will also be told that sodomites will have to be considered to hire for jobs in the church. if the lawn mower comes dressed like a transvestite and acting inappropriately, if the derelict is fired, he will be brought to court....
now they can recruit. the lifestyle by its nature must recruit. its a resurrection of ancient rome. remember Sodom and Gomorrah? they went door to door, same with many today. besides losing their moral position to be role models to younger boys, what are parents going to do when there is subtle flirtation going on? society was built on giving distinction to male/female and then giving separate facilities so that each person's dignity is intact. what are boys going to have to hide themselves like school girls when they change clothes? what a recipe for disaster!
well, Jim, I'm talking with girls that have been r@ped because they are white. families that have their kids beat up at school because they are white. its not 1955 anymore. I'm meeting black folks displaced by the muslems and illegals. what a mess this is. our politicians refuse to obey the law, create austerity and joblessness, and use welfare as a carrot among the enslaved.
in the last election Ron Paul advanced this ancient idea of individual rights as written in the const.
that is to say that a man was created by God, and does not have to be a member of the gov, lobby, corporation or union to have value.
the republic was founded on this principle.
what we now have is collectivism, and corporations/oligarchs have gained enough foothold that they can dictate to the masses what will and will not happen.
case in point-- Indiana. the process for protecting legal rights was complete, they had enough support from the people, the legal process and the governor, but the corporations threatened to ruin them.
in the last election Romney ran on the end of posse comitatus and the rights of corporations.
philosophically our media appointed "watchmen" have also been collectivists, they just want Christians to have a spot at the table.
problem with this (like obamacare) is that huge groups of people suffer under it and can only be exempted from little parts.
however a casual look at forcing people to pay for a product that they don't want is piracy.
since Johnson church organizations are often run by the compromisers, they made their churches into corporations. (non profit).
Suddenly the corporate lovers don't like their masters.
you all should investigate who brought the gangster/rap culture, those that have actually come out of it (not the ones still in it have "talks" at high schools), what is behind the cocaine market, originally.
as to this article, this liberation theology is a new talking point (old regurgitated idea) for the commnst movement on the country. they want people fighting each other so they don't notice the problem is that they are desembling our country and taking out the jobs, and that "all" folks are struggling generally speaking. numbers show the death of the middle class generally speaking.
how clever to saddle misperceptions among the dependent class that the rest are living high on the hog. (for who would buy this bologna when they are independent and have solid work in the community, it works up those who are displaced, angry)
so we see today three articles on SA, the fractionizing of America on three fronts for those who have eyes to see, which are many. the downside is seeing it all unfold does not prevent the suffering of one's people, but it does give us time to get right with God and to insert the truth of Christ into matters for those who have ears to hear.
Title: Now the truth emerges: how the US fuelled the rise of ISIS in Syria and Iraq
"On Monday the trial in London of a Swedish man, Bherlin Gildo, accused of terrorism in Syria, collapsed after it became clear British intelligence had been arming the same rebel groups the defendant was charged with supporting."
"A revealing light on how we got here has now been shone by a recently declassified secret US intelligence report, written in August 2012, which uncannily predicts ‚Äď and effectively welcomes ‚Äď the prospect of a ‚ÄúSalafist principality‚ÄĚ in eastern Syria and an al-Qaida-controlled Islamic state in Syria and Iraq. In stark contrast to western claims at the time, the Defense Intelligence Agency document identifies al-Qaida in Iraq (which became Isis) and fellow Salafists as the ‚Äúmajor forces driving the insurgency in Syria‚ÄĚ ‚Äď and states that ‚Äúwestern countries, the Gulf states and Turkey‚ÄĚ were supporting the opposition‚Äôs efforts to take control of eastern Syria."
Jim, you protest children who eat healthy, have sunshine and are close to a loving family. you are a child of eugenics. you'd rather our children be like battery chickens? their beaks cut, crammed into prisons and put on gm grain, sick and on tons of antibiotics? all rhetorical questions. You are in the prayers of many I am sure.
Jim, we obey the laws of men of they do not conflict with the higher laws of God. We are to fear God rather than men. no finessing the scriptures with questionable teaching is going to get you out of that conundrum. better to get right with God on this matter. scripture says that all who are Christians are persecuted. be jealous of the persecuted church, they are being a witness for Christ. blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake... matthew 5
thankfully I do not need Scofield nor Augustine as mediators to read Romans 9-11, which says the natural seed has been cut off, because of unbelief, not something we should blame on God, nor to say that God owes mankind anything else, already offering His Son as a sacrifice for our sins and giving us the Holy Spirit! Alleluia!
And that the remnant of natural and wild have been grafted back in through the covenant of the washing away of sins. Paul, the greatest of the teachers of the law was persecuting Christ by sentencing Christians to death. God had to make him blind to make him see, that his way to salvation was through becoming a new man in Christ. The Romans 11 grafting back in included Apostle Paul who once was lost and now was found, just as I once was lost and now am found, was blind but now I see.
The Jew and Gentile have no room to boast, as the Gentiles are told in Romans 11 they were being arrogant toward the Jewish brethren upon their exile from Rome and return.
our younger generations (men) are out of work especially BECAUSE of the CFR and their globalist work that they put into action through our Congress and other means. Many want a NA Union like the EU, which so many nations are desperately trying to get out of as we speak! the globalist debt slavery system that benefits a few monopolies is what these groups are about. either they are in glass ceiling syndrome and removed from the effects of their own philosophies or just love the $$$$ and power too much.
it is ironic that she would spend her time designing the world that men would have to live under instead of raising her children with humility.
these are the groups that design derivative markets and beg trillions in reparations for the markets they crashed. They are not popular and fund both parties. Anyone can research these things for themselves.
