So much distortion of the modern versions has been exhibited on the BB lately,especially from some new members. I thought I would play their little game for awhile.
Look at all the times the KJV has left out the name of Jesus.(And this isn't a comprehensive list!) I will compare the KJV with the NIV.
Luke 20:20,Acts 3;16,Acts 13:24 : KJV : his NIV : Jesus
Matt. 17:24,Matt. 20:29,Luke 10:38 KJV : they NIV : Jesus and his disciples
Acts 18:25 : KJV : the Lord NIV : Jesus
What is all the fuss about the original manuscripts? Many on here say only the originals were inspired and that God chose for them to be lost. Is God a deist? Did he leave humanity to pick up the pieces of His word and try to find these inspired nuggets in all these different modern versions? Is there NO ABSOLUTE AND FINAL AUTHORITY that anyone can read, preach, teach or handle? Is the whole thing really only a matter of preference? Is this how we treat the Holy Words of God?
Just a quick question that has come up on a couple of threads.
When is it better to use a cultural idiom instead of a literal translation?
For example, in Romans 6v2 the KJV uses a cultural idiom to translate μη γενοιτο as 'God forbid.'
The NKJV uses a much closer literal translation when it translates the phrase as 'certainly not.'
Would the current idiom 'No Way!' have suited as well as 'God forbid?'
Which translation is superior and why?
Hello to all:
If you have not heard Dr. Al Mohle'sr, President of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBC) in Louisville, KY, public response at the SBC annual meeting to the "homosexual question," I am posting it for all to hear.
I think you will thoroughly enjoy his answer to a question posed from the floor.
FYI, get back to me with observations please. :smilewinkgrin:...
This test is not an easy one. The website reports that college educators average about 55%. The average citizen averages about 49%.
BTW, I got a score of 57.89%. To be honest, I had to guess at more than half of them, so the score was about all I could hope for. Hope you do better, be sure to share at the end in the comment section. :thumbs:

Here is an interesting quiz to take -
Are you too consumed with theology
1) Your passion is to correct everyone else's theology above preaching the gospel to the lost.
2) Your can quote more from a theologian than from the Bible.
3) Each time you read the Bible you read it with an eye on your own theology (looking for proof texts) or to correct others.
4) You avoid reading the Bible where it might correct your theology or force you to rethink your own.
5) Your Bible...
Faith in God's existence doesn't save a soul Aaron. That was James' point by referring the demons belief in God. Saving faith is believing he exists and choosing to acknowledge Him as your God. The bible doesn't say, "Believe in your heart that he exists and confess with you mouth that he is real." It says, "that if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." That is more than affirming his existence, Aaron....
The Southern Baptist Convention has done the right thing by calling for a quicker path to citizenship at the local convention.
S. Baptists back immigration 'path'
“I think Southern Baptists understand it’s just not politically viable to send an estimated 12 to 15 million undocumented immigrants back where they came from,” said the Rev. Paul Jimenez, chairman of the SBC’s resolutions committee, told The...
In another thread, Tom stated (Post # 18) that
To those who argue that the Administrator of baptism is not important, I would point out that Jesus walked many miles to submit to baptism by the proper administrator---John the Baptist.
Do you agree with Tom?
If so, why was it that John the Baptist was a proper administrator?
