What consistent, sound, just measures are used to determine what constitutes Bible correcting?
Is some Bible-correcting in effect accepted by any believers who read a Bible translation?
Some seem to view all Bible-correcting as negative and wrong, ignoring that some Bible-correcting could be positive and right in that it would be following scriptural instructions from God. When a hand-written copy of the Scriptures is made, correcting any omissions, any additions, and any copying errors...
Poll question from 1st thread:
Are people born 'hellbound' due to Adam's transgression?
When you say "babies in hell" you're imagining not merely one who is innocent by worldly standards, you're imagining something like what we see and feel when we hear about atrocities being committed against infants.
When I 'imagine' hell the incomprehensible comes to mind, infinity in a torture chamber. God is just and righteous and it's inconceivable to me that He would create a living being, allow...
1Co 10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea;
1Co 10:2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
1Co 10:3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat;
1Co 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
1Co 10:5 But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were...
Revealing Grace + Repentance + Faith + Election + Spiritual Baptism + Conversion + Indwelling = Salvation + Good Works
Revealing Grace = hearing and understanding the call through the gospel of Christ.
Repentance + Faith = turning from our self-centered life to trusting in Christ alone with our life, now and forever.
Election = God choosing for salvation those whose faith He credits as righteousness.
Spiritual Baptism = God sets a person apart by placing them spiritually “in...
And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints, and of all who have been slain on earth.
For an honest discussion on Babylon’s identity, let’s investigate the category of all current and potentially emerging great, murderous, presumptuous regimes with a global reach that satisfy all the details of the book of Revelation:
For an honest comparison of all possible candidates, I’ll go first with this widely believed, seemingly conceivable, logically admissible interpretation:...
One recent poster repeated used the name "the Holy Bible" without identifying clearly to what he referred. Reading his posts would suggest that he likely used it solely and exclusively for the 1611 KJV.
Does the name "the Holy Bible" always refer to only or solely the KJV?
Does the KJV have sole and exclusive rights to this name "the Holy Bible"?
Was the name "the Holy Bible" used for any other English translation before 1611?
The 1611 KJV was both a revision of earlier English...
My son and I recently taught a two week course on "Translation Issues in Hebrew and Greek." He handled the Hebrew and I handled the Greek, and all had a wonderful time. We had three young translators in the class, and had a great time.
Anyway, for homework I gave the challenge of deciding which Chinese word used historically for "God" (theos in Greek) was best. This is a very real problem for missionary Bible translators. Get the word for God wrong and your whole translation (1000s of hours...
Is a silent church complicit in the war crimes of its State? Or is there safety in encasing oneself in an impenetrable shell of willful ignorance, as many Seventh-day Adventists believe?
From the recently closed thread.
I have read a number of times that Isaac Watts was a dispensationalist but I have never seen any quotes. Does anyone have any?
John of Japan replied
Here is a link to a scholarly journal article that proves it:
I did reply at the time thanking him for the article and offering a reply but it did not appear probably due to the six hour warning.
So I give another reply.
