On Eternal Security, hear the words of the Lord Jesus:
John 10:27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. Vs. 28 And I give to them eternal life: and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. John 10:29 My Father which gave them me, is greater than all: and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
Dan Corner aka CAB tries to pluck them out of God's hand. Every time he enters a debate to tear down his brothers and sisters in Christ. Instead of debating abortion, evolution, or some other worthy cause , he tears down God's flock instead.
Jesus even said, No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. John 6:44. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that everyone that seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. John 6:39, 40
So all that God draws will come to him and God's will is that they have eternal life and his omnipotence or all powerfulness assures that they will be kept and will never be lost.
Why do so many put the KJ Bible and Shakespeare together? That would be the same as a modern rapper and a bible preacher in the same light.
One he was "catholic", by family anyway Much of what he wrote was as ungodly as it gets for the time. He was known to use much slang or vulgar innuendo. If he used a bible (doubtful) it would have been a catholic version from the 1500s He died only 4 years after the 1611 KJ first came out... and Catholics rejected it .... Most of the argument on here fit in
James 3:16-18 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. 18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace. Titus 3: 9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.
Yes memorization is good; More the better. But I would rather live one or two God given precepts than memorize the whole and live none... Do you think Satan has had time to memorize it all? Love the LORD thy God with all... Love thy neighbor... Good place to start
I cannot remember the 90 year old preacherâ€™s name but can remember a 45 minute sermon preached by him with nothing but memorized verses in his life. He was so pickled with Gods word it was all he do or could speak.. AMen. The first 5 minutes was a thrill and entertaining the last 40 minutes everyone became ashamedâ€¦Amen. When I am old and senile I want to be sitting there just quoting scriptures...Not because I memorized them but because I lived them... Amen!
Ford I agree with you it does need to be kept...But it began to be attacked in the garden, God preserved it, The middle ages tried to eliminate it, God preserved and distributed in more languages. A major blow and when the dug in trench of protection was overrun when the churches surrendered the printing of the Bible to well intentioned men in Bible Societies in the 1800s; In essence prostituting the Word of God for profit in order to prolifically produce it. A necessary evil if you will. But as with anything the more you have of something the less people value it. Fast forward a few decades and the need for new and improved of that which was devalued and to sell more was ready. And plenty of scholars ready to feed the flame. We donâ€™t need new and improved Bibles, we need read and worn out Bibles.
The Bible says God will preserve His word... Many argue about where and what translation originals ect. No book made with hands will be saved(wood hay and stubble), though God uses these wonderful treasures as a tool of the Holy Spirit in which teaches us all things 1 Jn 2:27, Jn 14:26. The Holy Spirit even uses nature and our conscience(thatâ€™s why non will have excuse). God said in Jer he will write his word in our hearts and minds and since we are the reason for the testaments of Jesus Christ commonly called the Bible. Jer 31:33-34 They will be preserved in us. Ps 37:28 I believe and trust the ol KJ(not a version) Bible translation. Why? Itâ€™s fruit, Itâ€™s testimony, its price in the blood of the saints and their testimony about it. But as much as I love the ol KJ, Its paper and ink will not be found in heaven though its testimony and fruit will be. We can make anything an Idol: our things, our work, our families, our inellect, and yes even our Biblesâ€¦ Argue all you want I would rather feed on his word and grow therebyâ€¦
