A debate is stirring over revisions made to the final translation of the English Standard Version Bible regarding gender, with one biblical scholars saying the changes are "potentially dangerous."
Editors changed the previous translation of Genesis 3:16 which said, "Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you." The verse has now been changed to read, "Your desire shall be contrary to your husband, but he shall rule over you."

I am wanting to start a study with our deacons about going deeper in our walk and service to the Lord. I'm needing some suggestions if you all may know of a good book with study guide. (I know the Bible is the best book). I was thinking of something like "The Man in The Mirror" or something like that.
Thanks for any help,
A little quiz for your Calvinist Friends. Inspired by the ever resourceful JC Thibodaux and by a Calvinist dude namedJay Banks. Enjoy.
Genesis 25:23 The LORD said to [Rebekah], “Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you will be separated; one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger.”
Q: What was in Rebekah’s womb?
A. Two nations and two peoples.
B. One elect person and one reprobate person.
C. Don’t even try to refer to the Old...
I am taking the new members class and am going to join the church. Still a member at the IFB church but am leaving it and with this church I agree with 99% of the doctrine. Only disagreements are in the area of evangelism and Hell . They are primarily lifestyle evangelism oriented instead of primarily contact evangelism and with the doctrine of Hell they believe it is literal and I believe the same however I am open to the metaphorical View on Hell. Crocket did a good job at explaining...
I prefer the term discussion to debate because debating is so often a waste of time. For example no matter what I say I won't convince the likes of people like Sapper who refuses to read books like TWOTM because it disagrees with his views. So often this is the case with most around here. Baptist Believer wants to learn so he is reading. I have said a thousand times the author will make better arguments and use scripture more so than me because he has more time to spend.
I am looking for a book(s) that deals honestly with the topics of Calvinism & Arminianism, each from a dissenting viewpoint. In other words, a book that would accurately represent (as opposed to misrepresent) the opposing tenets of theology by quotes and other documentation and then attempt to refute it with Scripture. Do such books even exist?
A. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body. Romans 8:23
By which covenant do we have the firstfruits of the Spirit?
And this I say, that the covenant, that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul, that it should make the promise of none effect. For if the inheritance...
Platt recounted the story -- which, though atypical in Western experience, bore similarities to biblical accounts of raising the dead -- during his report to the Southern Baptist Convention's Executive Committee, Sept. 19 in Nashville.
"This Asian believer tells our missionary," Platt said, "that as they were praying there over the man, all of the sudden the man coughed. Everybody in the house got really still. And the man coughed again. People came rushing over, and the...
And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: Joel 2:28 KJV
Is God at this present moment in time pouring out his Spirit upon all flesh or did God on Pentecost following the resurrection of Jesus, begin to take out of the Jews and then a little later, begin to take out of the Gentiles a people for his name, giving them, or pouring out on...
I did not want to disrupt the other thread so-
This theme of Jew / Gentile unity is replayed so many times in the New Testament. To reject the premise of one people of God is almost to reject the message of Christianity. Here are just a few passages that show this overwhelming theme of unity.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the...
