NIV 2011 Banned by Southern Baptists?
I am never surprised at the stupidity of Christians with an agenda to promote the HCSB!..
To show the SBC's hypocrisy look at how the HCSB has done the same thing the TNIV has done..
I guess it all boils down to which bibles the SBC wants sold in it's Lifeway bookstores...
In a perfect world, there would be no “King James version controversy” at all, because “the Bible” would be “the Bible”.
But wicked men, used “updating the Bible”, as an excuse to “change” the Bible!
Updates are great, if that is all they are.........
“updates” (To make more modern)
But the entire KJB controversy is centered around, how some use an “update”, to remove verses or passages, from God’s Word.
A good example...
I was not sure where to put this thread. Since I am a Baptist I placed in the General Baptist Discussion.
The thread on the pledge of allegiance made me begin thinking about the topic of national flags in churches.
Frankly I do not believe the national flag should be placed in a church be it in America, England, the Czech Republic ... in any country.
1. The national flag stands for Caesar and not God. Thus, IMHO, national flags should not be placed anywhere in a Baptist Church....
John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
God's program shifted from the nation of Israel to all nations and all peoples as recorded in Acts. Explained in Romans 11. This couldn't happen until Christ was first "lifted up from the earth". John 12:32 was simply a prophecy of things that were to come (Acts 1:8-9, 2:39). I don't believe He meant that every individual would be drawn, but that some would be drawn from all nations and from all peoples. For...

And Bezaleel made the ark of shittim wood: two cubits and a half was the length of it, and a cubit and a half the breadth of it, and a cubit and a half the height of it: (Exodus 37:1)
Well, what I think of here is: Where is the ark of the covenant now?
In Revelation John said in 11:19 that he saw the Ark of His Testament (the marginal note is covenant) in heaven. Is this one and the same...
Just who was this promise being made to by God?
That as a system, that it contains no errors/ mistakes in way that it understands the concepts of Gods dealing with man, especially in Election/salvation/grace/Gospel etc?
That in area of Sotierology that it contains 'all truth?"
IF either a "historical" pre mill or a pre trib rapture...
Aren't both considered still to be Dispy camp?
As you still hold to Second Coming to set up a earthly Kingdom, and still see isreal/Church seperate parts in Plan of God?
It doesn't seem we touch on this at all. Gluttony, or over-eating, gorging oneself, is seemingly tolerated within not only our society, but in our churches also.
At one point, our church members would take us out to dinner after services. Around here there are many buffets, and the status quo is quantity, not quality. Let's just say that those who took us out to eat became a little upset that we did not gorge ourselves with several plates of foods, but ate sensibly, and controlled what...
"And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
So people always ask "do you know Christ?" Or "do you know Jesus?"
My question: isn't it MORE important that He knows me rather than the other way around?
My other question: how do I make sure He knows me?
Like many, I don't want to hear our Lord tell me "I never knew you".
