    How is it exactly that God left preservation up to a lost catholic priest?

    Erasmus was no friend of the reformation. He was a humanist.

    Yet, today we have so many idol worshipers, errrrgggg, KJVOs, bowing down and kissing the feet of this guy.

    What makes Erasmus so special?

    I am not certain why this keeps coming up after it has been so completely refuted. I think it is simply another attempt to stir up strife and discord, and that is a dirty shame. :(

    Why not stick to the issue instead of trying to use your changing the topic antics. Oh, that reminds me, my child is crying.

    He wasn't against justification by faith. In his debates with Luther he believed Luther misrepresented the beliefs of Augustine. Many baptists today would agree.

    What changing the topic antics? You asked a question regarding Erasmus which implies things about him which have already be completely refuted.
    Must run in the family.

    Why did God preserve Israel through the actions of a bunch of jealous, lying menstealers?

    Because God doesn't need to use "perfection" to accomplish preservation. [​IMG]

    Erasmus is like the Thomas Jefferson of the Reformation. You find what you want to find.

    Not surprising that Christian humanism should find itself in the same boat as "liberalism" here.

    As I said earlier:

    He used him the same way he uses anyone that is not perfect.

    The same way He used Alexander the Great to unite the, then known, world with the Greek language in order to pave the way for the NT to be written and Christianity to be spread easily.

    The same way He used the Romans in building roads to make the world accessible to Christianity.

    The same way He used Wescott and Hort to show us that older is better.

    The same way He used Constantine to stop the persecutions.

    and now the Same way He used Mel Gibson to show the world how much Christ loves us!

    No one is perfect, but God can use us all.

    Isn't that wonderful.

    Precepts quipped:

    ....except in 1605, when it was "scattered" and no single Bible was perfect! [​IMG] Whee! Logic is fun!

    This is what I am getting at. God had to use a lost person to accomplish preservation. All those verses that the KJVOs wrench out of context apparently only starting applying in 1611.

    Well, that is after a lost catholic went through 3 editions of the TR (none of which were the same), followed by at least 11 other major overhauls, a rushed translation by a committee that sought to please a queer king, multiple revisions since then...

    Man, preservation according to the KJVO really is a joke.

    This one is preserved. No wait, this one is. No wait...

    Let's see. You say that a person who believes "Christ promises us remission of sins, fruits in this life a hundredfold and therefore life eternal. And for what reason? For the sake of our merit? No indeed, but through the grace of faith which is in Christ Jesus . . . Christ is our justification . . ." is lost, and of whom the RCC says was a heretic from Rome is a Catholic? Interesting. So, by your standard would you say I am a lost Catholic too? I believe in Justification by faith in Christ too, and I too would be described by Rome as a heretic, so, according to your logic I too am a lost Catholic!
    Actually Erasmus published 5 editions of the TR.
    7 years is a "rush?"
    Really? James fathered 9 children by his wife Anne, whom he loved dearly, and wrote a rather good book denouncing effeminate and homosexual men. How many children have you fathered?
    So is "history" according to you!

    Get real Precepts, you believe in pickling, not preservation.
