Not sure if this is the best/correct place for this discussion, because it is not strictly about Bible versions and translations, but about Bible preservation. (If it should go elsewhere, would one of the moderators please relocate it?)
Two days ago I read from The Master's Seminary Journal an article titled Preservation of the Bible: Providential or Miraculous? The Biblical View by Jon Rehurek (not a new journal). Rehurek is a graduate of the Master’s Seminary and an instructor at Samara...
Almost all of the modern Bible versions, and every language, has its New Testament textual basis on the Greek texts produced by the United Bible Society. These are the men who were the main editors of The Greek New Testament and A Textual Commentary on the Greek New Testament, published by the UBS. You can see their own views on the Authority of the Holy Bible, and see whether God would use such men to translate HIS WORD.
CARLO MARTINI, who joined the UBS Greek N.T. editorial committee in...

Ephesus - Messianic - Beginning with the Apostle to the Circumcision, Peter
Smyrna - Martyr - Beginning with the Apostle to the Un-Circumcision, Paul (according to foxes there were ten Roman persecutions)
Pergamos - Orthodoxy formed in this time... Pergos is a tower... Needed in the dark ages
Thyatira - Catholicism formed in this time - The spirit of Jezebel is to control and to dominate.
Sardis - Protestantism formed in this time- A sardius is a...
It's spring break in the education biz, so I thought I'd cause some mischief.
Every single prophecy of the first coming of Christ, His incarnation, was fulfilled literally. I have a list of over 60 such fulfillments. Think of His being born in Bethlehem, His family fleeing to Egypt, etc.
In the light of that fact, who gave the right to anyone to interpret prophecy about His second coming allegorically or "spiritually"? (These two methods are essentially the same.) Let me be more specific....
I hail from the Houston, Texas area, home of Lakewood/Osteen Church. I am curious as to the member's opinions about churches of this nature and the oft-taught so-called prosperity gospel (that is, follow God and good things will come your way.... not supported by scripture or tradition until a few charlatans in the 20th century).
Hokey Dina! Did I just begin this thread?
It seems there are some who really want to discuss this so I have decided to open this thread.
Before we get into it, I would like to highlight the fact that I am in no way teaching that the ECF did not believe that the church will exist on earth during the tribulation as well. Therefore, if you start claiming that I am teaching this, you need to learn how to listen. Yeehaw cowboy.
And now, without further ado:
Shepherd of Hermas:
"Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”
Now, Calvinists teach that the will of man is in bondage, and therefore no able to chose whether to follow the Lord Jesus or not. This, they say is only what the "elect" can do, since they have been predestined, and...
Love the Getty's performance and melody of "Before the Throne of God Above". I thought how wonderful to have a "new" hymn with such spiritual depth.
Then found it was written by Charitie Lees Bancroft in Ireland in 1863 and included in Bishop Ryle's Spiritual Songs and in Spurgeon's Our Own Hymn Book
So while it was "new to me" and with a "new" melody, it is truly an old classic!
