I've noticed all the debating surrounding the KJVO issue, and must confess I have learned quite a bit by reading and not debating. This is my question: If God promised to preserve His Word and we are to pattern our lives after the Bible, then when can we and when can we not apply the Scriptures literally to our life? If the arguement is, " that was written in a different time to a different people", then WHEN does it apply to us? If "whosoever will" apllies to us, then why not "abstain from the appearance of evil" or " let her ask her husband at home", or "not to usurp authority over a man", etc. etc... My point is not really each of these sperate issues per se, but instead the philosophy behind what is & is not meant for us today! In Christ, Peggy PS. What about all the teaching of preservation? Are only the salvation passages preserved?
