What is the Lord's day according to scripture alone? Let the Bible speak:
The "Lord's day" according to scripture, is the 7th day, the sabbath day of the Lord.
Genesis 2:1-3,4 - 'the seventh day', 'God', 'day', 'the LORD God' [… God [the LORD] … day …]
Exodus 16:23 - "the LORD", "to morrow [the seventh day] is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD' [... the LORD ... [day] ...]
Exodus 16:25 - 'to day [the seventh day]; for to day is a sabbath unto the LORD: to day' [... the LORD ......
This thread will be open-ended. No fancy schmancy rules about nuancing minutia. You may talk about translations and translation methods. You can take issue with translation methods. I would like concrete examples when accusations are laid down though. Oh no, as I'm thinking about this, I suddenly have thoughts about a KJV war. Okay, let's not talk about the KJV here --either positively or negatively. You can speak of William Tyndale and other translations that came out before and after the...
When discussing doctrine I prefer terms like synergism and monergism because they are in one way more precise (depending on the conversation) and in another broad enough to incorporate differences within each view. Often they get to the "meat" of the matter where other terms (like Calvinism, Arminianism, Pelagianism, Semi-Pelaganism, Compatabilism and Fatalism) do not. Even "free-will" is a loaded term (free-will is both a Calvinistic and an Arminianian doctrine, but held differently). So...
All true Bible students agree that Jesus built only one church, and at that time the saints were in that one church. Now we have a church that claims they are ones that Christ declared, "I will build My Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it". He promised that His Church could never be destroyed. Christ also said, "But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." Matthew 15:9
"And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of...
I'm going to try this again. Note that this thread is strictly about definitions. Please do not make it an argument about different theories or methods of translation. Argue about the definitions if you wish, but don't argue about the methods. I'm going to make this easier so people don't get mixed up by not putting any definitions in this OP. This will make it easier to figure out the OP.
So, please put up definitions of your own or quotes from others about methods of translation or...
It seems like anti-KJVO is pervasive on this board. I'm not condemning any one on either side as anti-KJVO can have as many flavors as KJVO. Though it does make me wonder what, specifically those who do stand against it, feel God's promise to preserve His Word looks like today...? You know, where is it, what is it, sort of thing.

Where's the popcorn emogi?
I carefully re-read Will Kinney's article, "Is King James Onlyism Scriptural?", and, while he SAYS it is, he FAILS TO PROVIDE ONE QUARK OF SCRIPTURE THAT SAYS IT IS ! ! !
Instead, he posts several verses that are found in every other valid English Bible translation, & includes the disproven "Psalm 12:6-7 thingie" as well. (The AV 1611 itself proves that "thingie" wrong with its footnote for the 2nd "them" in V7 - "Heb. him, I. Euery one of them.")
He refuses to acknowledge any of the...
I have assumed that users of the New King James Version, at least to some degree, use the NKJV because they prefer the Textus Receptus over the Critical Text. Obviously some may have just found it and liked it, with no reference to or even knowledge of the text question. However, it would seem that some who like the TR and also like updated language would choose the NKJV. Nevertheless, I have not found any writing of TR advocates in favor of the NKJV. For example, the Trinitarian Bible...
Given the Coronavirus pandemic, and the fact we have many members who are older, my church is practicing social distancing. We have our sermons being delivered via Facebook Live. Our small groups are using Zoom to do group chat.
Anyone else getting this problem.?
