If you drink coffee, pour a cup. If you drink tea, cook your bag. If you drink wine, pour a glass. Whatever your persuasion I thought to take a break and ask a question and at the same time learn something and have some fun.
Yes, jeremiah knows how to have fun (despite his approach and firmness.)
Here's my question:
God makes a human four ways.
Can you name them?
(Yeshua1, I'd like to see you respond, hopefully before the rest of the sharp people-swords here provide the answer.)
In the first installment entitled "The Gift Ministries," I introduced through Scripture the Five-Fold Ministry of Christ in His people and explained that these five gift ministries are the expression of the Life of Christ in and to His people - the Church. I laid out through Scripture that Christ Himself holds and commands in these five gift ministries, and that the apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor and teacher are not only the expression of Christ Himself to His people but that to deny...
Biblical errancy is real.
Biblical errancy typically has one or more of 3 causes: 1) The reader not correctly understanding what is read. 2) Translation problems. 4) Copyist errors.
It is God who is inerrant and His word. The written word of God which we have in our translations of the Bible are inerrant in their original autographs. The books of the Bible were the inerrant word of God at the time they were written.
Or, as it is commonly known...the Five-Fold Ministry: Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, and Teacher.
Ephesians 4:11 (KJV)
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
These gift ministries express in and to the Church the Life of Christ in His people:
Hebrews 3:1 (KJV)
1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;
This thread is about translation as I would like to see done. From time to time I will post one.
Others should feel free to do the same. But be prepared to accept the fact there may be some who will disagree.
(KJV is the starting base.)
Here is my first suggestion:
". . . Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born over, he cannot see the kingdom of God. . . ." -- John 3:3.
". . . Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born over. . . ."...
How many of you have read books from reliable authors from both sides of the KJVO debate?
I would say that two books arguing against the KJV only debate would be
James White's the KJVO controversy
D.A. Carson's the King James Ony Debate
Authorized: The Use and Misuse of the King James Bible by Mark Ward
Then for the side of the KJVO I would say
Faith vs the Modern Bible Versions by David Cloud
For love of the Bible by David Cloud
the KJV defended by Edward Hills
Defending the King James...
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Jesus has declared the will of the Father by how the Son is the only way any believer can approach God the Father by in prayer. ( BTW That also includes fellowship and worship FYI )
That means no believer can approach God the Father by the way of the Holy Spirit.
1 Timothy 2:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son....
1 Corinthians 4:6 And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another.
That also applies to any "Church". We are not to think of any Church above that which is written.
The doctrine of the Nicolaitanes which God hates, is having an authority outside the local assembly other than Jesus Christ the head of the...
Romans 9:6-24 6 But it is not as though the word of God has failed. For they are not all Israel who are descended from Israel; 7 nor are they all children because they are Abraham’s descendants, but: “THROUGH ISAAC YOUR DESCENDANTS WILL BE NAMED.” 8 That is, it is not the children of the flesh who are children of God, but the children of the promise are regarded as descendants. 9 For this is the word of promise: “AT THIS TIME I WILL COME, AND SARAH SHALL HAVE A SON.” 10 And not only this,...
