NOTE: Byzantine/Majority authors and developments will only be mentioned as they relate to the KJV Only movement. Non-English translation efforts will also only be mentioned as they relate to the KJV, or if they represent a previous “Only” movement.
200 BC (more or less, who knows)—The Septuagint (LXX), a Greek version of the Old Testament, is translated ostensibly by 70 Jewish scholars.
1st Century AD—A Septuagint Only movement develops. Later on, famed Christian scholar Augustine...
In the realm of higher education, we are told that colleges and universities foster intellectual inquiry and critical thinking. They teach students to think, or how to think, rather than what to think. (I question how successful they are in achieving this goal, when they turn out so many students whose thinking is changed to agree with that of their professors!)
In this same vein, religious seminaries supposedly want you to think about what you believe and why, rather than teaching you what...
How often is Baptist theology labeled as "folk theology" at "non denominational" and Ivy League seminaries?

But now you are listening to professors discuss the same subjects in ways you’ve never heard before. It is jarring and often confusing. Students sometimes rebel, questioning the faith of their professors or wonder why they need to learn “all this new extraneous stuff.” If you...
Do we live in the Kingdom of God now just a little, trying to follow the commands in the scriptures as we are able and look forward to the future kingdom where we shall see or how does it really work?
For now we see through a glass, darkly;
but then face to face:
now I know in part;
but then I shall know
even as also I am known.
1 Corinthians 13:12
Do we acknowledge the spiritual now but still follow the material?
How else could we not?
*Jesus is Lord but we still have to eat so we work...
This verse is addressed to a Jew named timothy. Paul's son. It is not addressed to Gentiles.
The first verse says who this chapter is to.
2Ti 2:1 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. This is Paul writng.
Brightfame quoted this verse Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory..
This verse is true but it is addressed to a Jew the son of Paul. You failed to prove...
Saturday I started a thread on the 2001 Translation: An American English Bible. In doing so, I discovered that they chose the Septuagint as the source for their OT text. Most English Bible translations use the Hebrew Masoretic Text as their primary source for the Old Testament. I am wondering how many choose the Greek Septuagint for their primary source for the Old Testament?
Here are two others I know about:
The Holy Bible containing the Old and New Covenant, translated by Charles...
HE cannot repent. He cannot be in a bad state and say what I am doing is wrong I need to change my ways.
PAST TENSE. REPENT mean YOU change your mind. He cannot repent, God must REPENT.
Instead God has to zap him first into a GOOD state of grace, SAVED, And he can ONLY LOOK back and say I was bad. HE HIMSELF cannot REPENT.
He can't say sorry God for my evil heart, Only sorry God that I HAD an evil heart.
19“Therefore repent and return, so that your...
Throughout the Old Testament we see one very prevalent theme – that is this kingdom that God is going to establish through the Anointed One (through the Messiah or Christ). We see this in the Psalms, we see this very clearly in Ezekiel, Jeremiah, and Isaiah.
In the Gospels we read that Jesus proclaimed the gospel of the kingdom of God, that this kingdom has come near.
The parables of Christ speak of this kingdom.
This kingdom is like a man who sowed good seed….
This kingdom is like a...
There are some who believe that the Gospel Message is only understood by the "elect", while God has hidden this from those who are the "non-elect", as they are not chosen unto salvation. The passage in Isaiah 6, and its quotations in the New Testament, is much used to show this. But, as we shall see from the evidence of Scriprure itself, this is not the case.
“And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. Make the heart of...
