Why I'm the world would you read something other than a King James? That's like settling for a mini-van when you could have a corvette! God has numerous promises in the Bible that he would preserve His word, and yes, those were translated correctly too!
If God can save my soul, He could save a Book for me to read. Common sense tells you that!
John UK wrote: There are many who vainly imagine they are born again, and this, not by a sovereign work of a sovereign God (as in my case), but by an act of procreation followed by sprinkling with water, thus making it a manmade effort irrespective of God's involvement. This is not biblical, but a tradition from the 16th century Frenchy.
Misleading by false ideology again John to support your religious traditions. And you've returned to your old racist habits. Baptists have some very unchristian habits and doctrines. It must have something to do with the Baptist inability to read the Bible correctly.

Thankyou Satan. I see you are still at large.
But we Christians have been forewarned and forearmed by our Master Jesus, the Son of God.
He teaches us.... Matt 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
Those who are anti-Calvinism are usually the works based religion pushers such as Roman Catholics and Arminians.
It is interesting to note that cults like the Jehovah's Witnesses are works based - free will religionists too.
I think the alternative to Biblical Faith the work of the Holy Spirit in the heart of the elect is exemplified in the verses Matt 7:21-23! These are the works based-free willers who don't need Christ!!
"And what is the heresy of Arminianism but the addition of something to the work of the Redeemer? Every heresy, if brought to the touchstone, will discover itself here. I have my own private opinion that there is no such thing as preaching Christ and Him crucified, unless we preach what nowadays is called Calvinism. It is a nickname to call it Calvinism; Calvinism is the gospel, and nothing else." (C.H.Spurgeon)
Yes Spurgeon was indeed one of the elect and preached and practiced Calvinism like the elect do. That is real Biblical Christianity.
The new Roman Catholic Archbishop of Westminster was embroiled in controversy yesterday because of his decision to let a paedophile priest continue to work in spite of concerns over his behaviour.
The Most Rev Cormac Murphy-O'Connor allowed Father Michael Hill to work as a chaplain after receiving therapy. Hill was later jailed for five years for 10 sex attacks on altar boys and other children.
