He is probably my favorite reformer. I would love to see a podcast on his contribution to education. I've read that there wasn't a school in Germany that didn't have a teacher influenced by him and that he was considered the "Schoolmaster of Germany." Dr. Valica at Pensacola Christian had some excellent information on him in her dissertation since she did mostly firsthand research in Germany, if you are looking for more information in English.
Great Sermon! For me the Bible answers 3 of the most important questions 1. Who am I? A child of the Living God. 2. Why am I here? To glorified God.
3. Where am I going? Heaven and Glory.
All I need to know is God is sovereign and Rom 8:28.
The Bible is very clear.
Great Sermon! General info: Although both played major league baseball and are close in age, and even had similar career stats, Billy Bean the baseball player and Billy Beane the general manager are two different people.... Easily confused!
Great Sermon! The KJV translators were merely admonishing the student to verify for themselves that their work was precise, complete and correct. Any other interpretation is entirely unhistorical and illogical.In Augustineâ€™s day there was no final translation. In the King James Bible translatorsâ€™ day, there was the making of one, so that the sense could be found out, that is, by them in making it, and by us afterward. The translators had to consult many former works. In doing so, they were gathering out and coming to the conclusion of one correct sense as given in English. They were not in any way arguing for the multiplying of English translations, but the opposite.
You can find full and complete refutations to the vast majority of anti-kjv arguments on the site brandpluckedweb.
Great Sermon! Thy word is truth. .....
Brother, if the kjv is all you need than by all means. ... use it. I pray it blesses you
To be honest, the argument for kjv only is so absurd that it's not even worth arguing about.
Great Sermon! The Pope, The Vicar of Christ was quoted in an article in the Mail Online saying that God is not afraid of "New Things". Doesn't he know that one of the attributes of God is his immutability. Mal 3:6, Heb 13:8. Morals of a society may change, but God's word does not. Amen
Great Sermon! Gib ham from Indianapolis. I listened to The Myth of the King James Only you recommended. Within less than 5 minutes the guy exposed himself as a proven liar. He said we have the inspired, inerrant Word of God in our hands right now, today. Yet his entire position demands that we do not have the inerrant Word of God in our hands, today. If we did, there would be no need to keep on editing it, no need to delete any more verses. No need to touch it at all.
Great Sermon! You are absolutely right about those who are willingly ignorant. All the information you need to understand the Septuagint for what it is, can be found in the following articles:
The Septuagint a Critical Analysis by Dr Floyd Nolan Jones
Was the Septuagint the Bible of Christ and the Apostles by Dr Phil Stringer
The LXX A Model of Reverse Engineering by Scott Jones
Did the Messiah Speak Hebrew or Greek by E A Knapp
Further, there was no LXX at Qumran and no one has been able to produce an LXX that pre-dates 320 AD. The Septuagint today is in nothing more than Vaticanus back-translated to match the OT quotes to the new.
Finally if you subscribe to the new versions you subscribe to the removal of verses from scripture, which puts you in direct conflict with a whole host of scriptures: Psalm 12:7, 2 Timothy 3:16, Proverbs 3:5, John 10:35, Revelation 22:18,19, Isaiah 66:5, and many more. See the opening statement of this post.
Great Sermon! Great work guys, The kjv only point of view is ridiculous and No one with even the slightest bit of understanding in regards to textual criticisms would hold to that view. It's borderline cultish. Here is another great refutation from a knowledgeable pastor. The Myth of the King James Only http://subspla.sh/1hZbAnD
Great Sermon! I posted a refutation of your points, but SermonAudio declined to post it. Says it all, really. One final thing. The KJV translators did not claim to be inspired. If they had have done so, the attacks on the KJV only position would have been ten times more savage. Scripture is full of people, nations and kings who were tools of God without realizing it. John the Baptist did not know he was Elijah. Jesus knew better. For God hath put it into their hearts to fulfil his will . . . (Rev 17:17).
The OT was given to the Jews in Hebrew, the NT was given to mankind in Greek. In the fulness of time God gave the entire Bible in one language, the universal language of English.
Truly good Christian reader, we never thought from the beginning that we should need to make a new translation, nor yet to make a bad one a good one; but to make a good one better, or out of many good ones one principal good one, not justly to be excepted against; that hath been our endeavour, that our mark.
The KJV translators.
Great Sermon! Didnt see the movie and dont intend to. But, I wonder why the woman mention Matt 24 in relation to the rapture. I cant find the rapture in Matt 24. Some try to put in Matt 24:31. But Jesus doesnt send angels to get his church, we know his voice and we will respond. There is a trumpet, maybe that is it. Maybe it is the thief in the night. The thief in the night is always associated with the Day of the Lord, which is judgment.Maybe, in Matt 24:40-41. One taken and on left etc. But, Luke explains this in Luke 17:34-37.
And after reading these verses is definitely not talking about the rapture. The ones taken are taken in judgment. Where is also mention in Matt 24:28. Rapture Matt 24 or Luke 17 just dont see it, maybe some else does?
