Jim Lincoln wrote: Also the KJV translators would consider it utter nonsense not to have the Bible in contemporary English! They gave these verses for having the AV translation:
You always exclude God from the argument, Jim.
God used both His servants and the times of 1611 to write His Bible.
Whereas in these modern Liberal times we have observed the MYRIAD of versions all different in their language and vernacular competing to be the quote truth and Word of God. How confusing can you get. God does not use confusion to teach His doctrines.
The King James Version is NOT wrong in its translation of the Word of God as you try so hard to imply. It has been used by God Himself for centuries to build His Church.
God did not have to WAIT till the 20th century to reveal His Word, His truth and His doctrines. Nor did God have to wait for the "education" of His people in modern language form to communicate His truth and doctrine.
Remember the Holy Spirit reveals the truth to God's disciples - Not their human comprehension.
The Covenant is extremely important in God's Word, Law and doctrine. So it is sad to see some people being so dismissive of it simply because of the new traditions, such as the Anabaptist theory.
Christ Jesus is the mediator of the Covenant of Grace, just as HE is the Saviour of the believers of the Old Testament times and the New Testament times.
So the Covenant of Grace is established by God in Christ for Abraham as much as for all times since. Now some people apparently think that God's promise about Abraham's SEED - was a lie??? Do you really think Abraham thought like that??? Of course not!!!
God made the Covenant promise to Abraham AND HIS SEED. Gal 3:16. Now this promise made to SEED is not one person but the elect of God, in Christ, in all generations.
Gal 3:17 "the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ" This cannot be disannulled otherwise God's promise would be of no effect.
So all your arguments to "disannul" God's promise are being aimed at God and implying that We cannot trust in God's promise!!!
Did Abraham trust God for the promise made about his SEED? his children?, his family?? Gen 17:11,12 - Token of Covenant was that also made void THEN? Notice 'WHEN' God confirmed the Covenant to Abraham. It wasn't centuries later was it
Oh my goodness I appear to have started ye olde debate on baptism and what it actually means. This of course has been going on for the last five centuries since approximately 1521 when the Anabaptists invented their unbiblical practice and a few other heresies too.
God's divine plan and purpose of the Covenant of Grace began with Abraham - AND HIS SEED - "Genesis 17:7 And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee"
Sadly their are some people who cannot accept this Word of God!!
"V10 This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised."
As you know circumcision has been changed by Christ into baptism.
But the age of the SEED has not been changed and therefore God admits the children of Covenantal parents (of course) into Covenant with HIM. This is the logical promise of God and illustrates the "whole" counsel of God on Baptism.
"Regeneration" by baptism is the lie of the papists - and apparently some Baptists too!! But of course as the true Christian knows election is by God alone in Christ alone.
""... a documentary which stated in part that the âthree most destructive wordsâ a boy can hear growing up is âbe a man.â"
Ok folks the new "gender" acceptable forms are sodomite, homosexual, queer, transgender, lesbian, ......????
Being a normal male/female is no longer acceptable to Liberal-mania governed western countries.
Note also how evil crimes such as quote, "sexual violence, body shaming, a âhyper-masculinized sporting culture,â acts of domestic terrorism and much more..." - are to be blamed on being male!!! So being queer is a much safer nicer anti-criminal way to live in todays society???
Yes! Satan is definitely in charge of the nations today.
"John 8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word. 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it."
From article: "The report documents 743 cases of discrimination, death threats, and physical assaults against Christians by Muslim refugees between February and May of this year and claims the findings are only âthe tip of the iceberg.â"
Now project this fact into the future of Europe and see what effect all these muslims will have on European nations including the UK, as they grow and increase in number.
The Liberal-socialist influence on European governments and the EU will continue to encourage the muslims to flood into Europe. Then the muslims will take over.
If Satan wanted a way to take over the western nations and force them into his religious heresies and ignorance whilst oppressing the people - Then Islam is the answer.
Meanwhile the Lefty Liberals live in complete ignorance, blind to the darkness oncoming among us.
2Peter 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 4 And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation....."
Quote: "According to a statement last month from The Mission Society, a ministry committed to organizing and supporting Christian mission work around the world, Christianity is growing at rapid rates across India. This trend was detailed in the latest issue of the Societyâs Unfinished magazine."
"âWith more than 71 million claiming Christianity, India is now the eighth largest Christian nation in the world,â Dick McClain, president and CEO of The Mission Society, explained. âYet with 456 languages and more than 2,611 distinct people groups, India still has more people groups unreached with the Gospel than any other nationâ88 percent of its population.â" [URL=http://christiannews.net/2013/12/02/report-christian-church-growing-at-a-rapid-rate-in-india/]]]http://christiannews.net/2013/12/02/report-christi..[/URL] = christiannews.net =
They call the 1960's a watershed which flooded society with:- Adultery Divorce decline in Christianity. Liberal churches. Satan's war on the Bible. Women in the pulpit. Acceptance of Sodom and Gomorrah. Abortions. Moral suicide. Satanic guidance. Assault upon God in His Word, laws and doctrines. Destruction of Marriage. Destruction of wifehood and husband.
Pornography is just another satanic corruption of the heart and mind of people today.
"wrote to the magazine's editors, asking that families with homosexual partners be depicted positively and regularly"
Brain-washing the children - What a neat way to bring perversions and depravity into modern society.
Satan really is hard at work in modern times.
GOD states: Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
Romans 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another..."
The so called 'millennial' group are essentially the modernists or Liberals ie the younger generation. These are people born into a generational philosophy which believes that homosexual practice is "normal" for some people, and abortion is ok!
The church today is dying it is disappearing therefore the Proverb - "When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall." Prov 29:16. Is sadly an accurate statement upon todays generation.
Agreeing with the satanic communist ideology and its daft idea that all people are born equal - ie the same and interchangeable - demonstrates how blind and ignorant the human race is becoming!!
Marxism begat Russia and China and their definition of "equality"?? which provides a nation with tyranny, autocracy and despotism, eg: Stalin, Mao Tse and Putin!!! = = Which by the way is exactly the policies that the Democrats love to sneak into America today.
Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all."

Covenant Theology is so very important in the Reformation teaching in the true Church, of the correct understanding of the Bible's Covenant of Grace.
Many in churches today have not fully grasped the relevance of the Covenant of Grace, which begins with Abraham in Genesis and of course includes Abraham's seed - his children. God's wonderful gift of children obviously becomes a very important part of the celebration of faith, the gift of God, especially to the Covenanted parents already members of HIS Church, the Reformed Church.
Like Abraham and in worship, praise and celebration of their children, the Covenanted Parents bring these children to God by Baptism, as the Bible teaches. Thus demonstrating their love and commitment both to God, His Church and their children.

From article; ""Undermining Religious Liberty For decades, the left has attempted to raise sexual orientation and gender identity to special protected status through Congress. Seeing little success using the democratic process, the Obama administration has instead turned to issuing various edicts that misinterpret existing civil rights protections to include sexual orientation and gender identity.""
Obama is definitely anti-Christian. But of course that is prime Democrat policy these days.
"Wallace, a Christian herself, believes fundamentalist access to United States armaments is the number one threat to state security."
She is clearly a devout Liberal another servant of Satan in masquerade.
Bible believing Christians are always and only a Remnant. They will be persecuted just as Jesus says we will.
As for this "professor" "22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,"
From article; ""Wallace answered on a positive note. âJesus was first a Jewish prophet reciting the Jewish rant in its standard edition, which is social justice, socio-economic justice. Care for widows and orphans, which is to say the unemployable. People who canât earn their own living. And the just sharing of the worldâs resources.â"Â
I guess in her ignorance Wallace wants to bring her view of Christ down to earth in a more 'worldly' form!! Liberalism Yeuch!!
