A number of folks on the Baptist Board seem to “make a living” debating about Bible versions. This post is not intended for debate, although some of you can find a reason to do so (and of course this is a debate forum). However, a better response might be to relate your journey to where landed on your Bible preference, rather than making this one more version debate. My purpose here is to show that sometimes our experiences are not what others might assume.
Many people assume many of us...
Deut. 8:3 So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.
Luke 4:4 But Jesus answered him, saying, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’ ”
Among those words are Leviticus 20:13 color=red] If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of...
Matthew 11:27-30, "All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
John 3;16, "For God so loved the world, that...
I have started this thread as a follow up on the various posts that I have on the subject of Repentance. I noted in another thread, "What makes a Church Group Become a Cult", that a member called, Lodic, mentioned me in his post:
@SavedByGrace wanted me to show where we are saved by faith alone. The passages are just that - they show that we are saved when we place our faith in Christ. Baptism doesn't save us. (That may need to be a new conversation.) Remember, the Penitent Thief was never...
In another thread, Yeshua1 brought up the idea the Luke -- the beloved physician, author of the Gospel of Luke, and Acts of the Apostles -- was a Gentile rather than a Jew. Rather than discuss it there, where it moves away from the topic, I decided to create a new thread. Some might be interested in discussing it in depth. ...except for Luke, ONLY Jews wrote the NT... Colossians 4: 1-14 note that Luke was not named among the circumcised Jewish helpers of Paul! The theory is based on...
1) It should translate the same word or phrase meaning consistently.
2) It should minimize translating different source language words or phrases into the same English word or phrase.
3) It should not alter the meaning of the text by deletion or addition or revision of word or phrase meaning.
1) Translate monogenes as unique or one of a kind, not one and only.
2) Change "world" to "mankind" in John's writings.
3) Change James 2:5 to read "...poor to the world, yet rich in...
Did you have to memorize scripture at your Bible college? WVBS assigned the following for quiz 1:
Gen 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Gen 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
Gen 3:14-15 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon...
First lets define “corporate” election as God making a choice to deal with a group of people according to His purpose. Thus, whoever is “in the corporate sphere” of His choice is chosen, and therefore anyone who enters that sphere becomes chosen or elect. The concept does not include a specific way to enter that sphere, so it is consistent with the Arminian idea that when a person sincerely puts their trust in Christ, they enter that sphere and become “elect” but corporate election does not...
The Effectual Operation of the Blessed Spirit in the Regeneration or Conversion of Sinners
by John Owen
Excerpt from The Holy Spirit
“To say that we are able by our own efforts to think good thoughts or give God spiritual obedience before we are spiritually regenerate is to overthrow the gospel and the faith of the universal church in all ages.”
- John Owen
All men can be divided into two groups. They are either regenerate or unregenerate. All men are born unregenerate (John 3:3-8)....
