I recently challenged one to provide verses that shows our eternal souls were created. They refused and challenged we show souls were created before our bodies were formed. I will do both.
Since our human bodies are not created but formed and continues today, we have to consider that in Gen 2;2 says
And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
"the rested" is ceased to work as shabath
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...
Am starting this thread as another one got off OP
From the "how much authority..." page
I am asking you what are the lies of the KJVO myth?
That is why I am asking you what (...) of the KJVO myth in general? You do not need to refer to a web site. I just want your understanding of what the lies of the KJVO myth are.
I deleted the word "lies" as I am very cautious of that word.
But as far as KJO - the key word is "Only". If the KJ is the only (true) version - then what was the "only"...
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,...
Try to answer these, or instigate your own...
When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the Lord has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him [Deuteronomy 18:22].
So how is Jonah not disqualified as a prophet? The Lord did not destroy Nineveh, as Jonah had spoken in His name. Indeed, does this put a different perspective on Jonah's anger when he did not see the city...
From the recently closed thread on Martin Luther's Bondage of the Will.
The question is, can we turn to Christ to be set free.
How do we turn when we are inextricably bound? We are set free from sin and thus enabled to believe, turn, and obey. God does that by removing your cold, dead, heart of unbelief and replacing it with a warm, living, heart of faith.
Think for a moment on the illustration Christ uses to shed light on this subject. He told Nicodemus "You must be born again."
