Perhaps Mr. Johnson has a point, Jim; it is certainly a point that you have reiterated many times. Just to demonstrate your sincerity when you make such posts, I wonder if you would mind summarizing your own personal efforts to spread the gospel in recent months? I'm sure that would be an encouragement to all of us to strive to do more to advance the kingdom of God. Please don't allow modesty to preclude your giving as many details as you think necessary. We all know how much you despise politics and love spreading the gospel.
J4J, Lord willing my wife and I will be in Cherokee County next week for a visit to family and friends. Please pray that we will be effective witnesses as we distribute English, Spanish and Chinese gospel tracts. Not really interested in debating anyone. Just want to see some folks get saved. Thanks bro.
Definitely food for thought, Neil. The problem isn't always overeating, however. As we have shifted from an agrarian society to a much more sedentary lifestyle, weight gain is a natural consequence of a lack of physical activity.
As far as I know, nobody has ever suggested on here that those who don't speak English must use the KJV. It has been amply demonstrated, however, that the KJB is superior in accuracy, power and results to any other version in the English language. But you're right about one thing, Frank: these conversations do get nowhere fast.
Selvedge and ensample are both defined in the 1828 Webster's Dictionary, which is free online. Jesus said, "If a man love me, he will keep my words""--not my thoughts, but my words. God said we are to lay up His words--not His thoughts, but His words--in our heart and soul. He said, "Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you" (Proverbs 1:23). Not my thoughts; my words. If the King James Bible contains His words, it is His Word. If it is His Word, why resort to an inferior translation which is NOT His Word?
I know a fellow who has smoked pot for going on fifty years. He recently had a major stroke, and he is a paranoid schizophrenic who has been in mental institutions numerous times. His family avoids him because his behavior is so aberrant and unpredictable. If that's what it costs to not have arthritis, I guess I'll just put up with the aches and pains.
