Brothers and Sisters I haven't studied DSS myself, but its not going to be much diff, because God has preserved His Word. I didn't the comment yet about growing more in the KJV than other versions. I can certainly see why a pastor would choose the KJV, memorizing in it seems easier to me and that is the best way to learn the Word is for it to remain in the heart and mind. This is a conversation is a joy to have.
There are many reformed seminaries who use the KJV in assembly but teach the original languages to pastors. Now many Baptist pastors do not have that background, use the KJV and serve the Lord with great boldness. the original languages and backgrounds bring out understanding to us. Much of what we just commonly hear in sermons today comes from these kinds of studies.
if any want to study something interesting from the Lordship of Christ position, is to the dead sea scrolls and the communities at that time, their protests of gross corruption in the temple system. It seems Christ came to do something monumental, a people that could go anywhere with the Holy Spirit, that He would preserve through tribulation.
Like the Word of God, He also preserves His people, so I'll move on. Thank you.
we are in a spiritual battle, not just intellectual. I pray God raises up a generation supernaturally empowered for the task at hand. May the true church quit bowing to the naturalistic, intellectual altar of Darwin, demeaning and denying the full orbed work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers, to take back her spiritual inheritance in Jesus Christ. Intellectualism does not prepare the Christian for an occultic world. The occult was hidden from their eyes, even though it was there, but now is being released into everyday affairs. May the true church break from her self made confines to be the light and salt.
excellent Mr. Ham! Kids are being told they come from monkeys and get dumbed down teaching about the bible, no wonder they are leaving! Plus our way of living reflects an evolutionary point of view....

I pray that when tribulation hits staunch dispensational pretribbers in particular, that they will turn to Christ instead of turning on the brethren. I pray that they will not take the mark of the beast or lose their souls to the endtimes deceptions, thinking they are exempted from these challenges. I've already seen hearts soften these last few years, this is a good thing. I also pray that Christ is given His place of preeminence in our hearts, because He is our King right now.
there were some that saw the evil behemoth, the bankster Yankees or the slave industry...., there were the William wilberforces and in the generation of reformers there were some that saw the corruption of the RCC, and the apostles the corruption of the Pharasees, and there were the Bonhoeffer's and the ten booms.
But what of our generation?
Are we going to be satisfied with pointing out every other generations flaws or deal honestly with the corruption of our day? ...
we don't remember Corrie for h@ting the RCC but rather for seeing the refugees and hiding them in her bedroom to save their lives.
that is where the true spiritual battle is.
the very ones that race bait are dividing and conquering the nations in very cruel ways. they quite literally finance mayhem.
those who they call racist are not racist, they are actually the non-racists who care about their fellow man, regardless of the color of their skin, who see others by the content of their character, and they see right through the commnst rhetoric, the faux wores and the exponential debt that will inevitably crash.
but Christ is still victorious. They have not taken it into account, nor those who are too afraid to face the facts of our day.... too much fear, need more discerning.

kind of like how Indiana pushed for religious freedom until corporations pressured and threatened them to the point they felt their state would be ruined if they let their people have freedom of religion?

I have to agree with you on this, there is a suffering church here that does not find its salve in most churches....
I've seen enough suffering in these United States, enough corruption, abuse, sex slavery, debt slavery, homelessness of innocents, innocents brought to early end of lives intentionally through medicine, malnutrition, drugging of children etc to last a long time. I'm thankful there is restitution in heaven. For those who suffer injustice, that is where the restitution is. I'm a thinking when the stock market crashes, all the prosperity preachers will be singing a different tune.
funny how things are described as if the rest of the world is "different", when so many of the abominations are sourced here, I see this as part of the deception. (if the corruption isn't here, then one doesn't have to deal with it)
