    For the record, Reformed (as far as soteriology) and Dispensational thinking are not mutually exclusive viewpoints.

    I think many Baptist fall under the term of being a "leaky Dispy" !

    You actually have to have some dispensational thinking to be biblical. Otherwise you would have to believe there are still prophets today and God still speaks directly to humans today, and Scripture can still be given today.

    I saw on a video where Dr mac and DrSproul discuss this, and Dr Mac said Dr Sproul was not enough Dispy, as in not at all. while Dr Sproul came back that Dr mac was way too much, as in any Dispy! they were laughing while saying it....

    Yeah, I don't feel good about marking up the word of God. I have no scripture or moral argument. It is just me. I feel like I would be disrespecting God's word if I marked it up.

    I have no issue with people who mark in their Bible. I understand why they do it and they intened no disrespect, they are just trying to draw truths from scripture.

    Oh, OK. Well, we talked about scripturally - it is the holy and inerrant and perfect Word of God. That's never to be tampered with. Physically speaking, it's paper and ink.

    If one is writing in one's Bible to learn better and outline things and make much needed cross references and personal notes of conviction, then he said it's not only acceptable, but encouraged.

    And I do understand why some people don't dog-ear their books nor mark in their Bibles. It's a personal preference - as I said, to each his own.

    I also keep notes on my computer and in notebooks. Vast amounts! LOL!

    Like you said to each his own... Comparing my KJV large print to yours... No way is it pristine but not like your picture, by no means:eek:... You could probably read 500 of the OT pages in my Bible and never see a mark or if there is one, you would have to look close, as you may miss it... Sometime when I see a mark or highlight or a scriptural reference in pen or pencil, I question why I put it there... Must have been some reason but I don't recall it now... My KJV is more or less for studying and reading, not for marking, until I feel the need, then I'll forget why I did it... I have plenty of references and the net, no need... Brother Glen:)

    Btw... My Bible is one way and my wife's is another... She's a retired English Teacher and she marks everything, with every color under the sun... When she hands me a book or her Bible and says, you need to read this, I about go blind trying to see the words in between the colors of the rainbow... Well I know one thing the company that makes highlighters are not going to starve, any time soon... Oh well!... It is what it is!:eek:

    Years ago I thought it was wrong to mark or write in the Bible. I’ve since learned that I learn much more by writing and making notes in the Word. I see it as sharpening the sword. The more I dig in it and mark, the deeper understanding I get. I’m finding that line upon line and precept upon precept all tie together from Genesis to Revelation. I use the KJV.

    I understand what you are saying, but be careful about what you are saying. You are not sharpening the sword. You are sharpening your mind. You can't sharpen a sword that is already "sharper than any two-edged sword"

    I understand that the Word is all powerful and I can’t add to or take away from God’s Word. But the more I study and dig, the more useful and helpful it becomes to me. I apologize for the way that sounded, but I meant different than it sounded. Without knowledge and study I am dull in the Word. Hope this better explains what I meant.
