    I think we could all pray for a good meeting. It obviously has the potential to have divisive consequences if hearts on both sides of the issue are not careful.

    Lets pray for a God honouring conference

    I, for one, will pray that someone is led to the Lord as a result of this conference....after all, isn't that our ULTIMATE mission for ANY gathering?

    English Actually...

    From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_language

    English as a global language

    Because English is so widely spoken, it has often been referred to as a "global language", the lingua franca of the modern era.[2] While English is not an official language in many countries, it is currently the language most often taught as a second language around the world. Some linguists believe that it is no longer the exclusive cultural sign of "native English speakers", but is rather a language that is absorbing aspects of cultures worldwide as it continues to grow. It is, by international treaty, the official language for aerial and maritime communications, as well as one of the official languages of the European Union, the United Nations, and most international athletic organisations, including the International Olympic Committee.

    English is the language most often studied as a foreign language in the European Union (by 89% of schoolchildren), followed by French (32%), German (18%), and Spanish (8%).[28] In the EU, a large fraction of the population reports being able to converse to some extent in English. Among non-English speaking countries, a large percentage of the population claimed to be able to converse in English in the Netherlands (87%), Sweden (85%), Denmark (83%), Luxembourg (66%), Finland (60%), Slovenia (56%), Austria (53%), Belgium (52%), and Germany (51%). [29] Norway and Iceland also have a large majority of competent English-speakers.

    Books, magazines, and newspapers written in English are available in many countries around the world. English is also the most commonly used language in the sciences.[2] In 1997, the Science Citation Index reported that 95% of its articles were written in English, even though only half of them came from authors in English-speaking countries.

    Jeremiah, in Japan kids take a minimum of six years of English from jr. high through high school. At the end of that time, very few can actually speak it because of the emphasis on grammar as opposed to conversation. I do not know a single Japanese who could read the KJV with much understanding, including an English teacher in our church and another retired English teacher who is my partner in translating the NT into Japanese from the TR. (There are currently no versions available in Japanese from the TR.) So simply because people in other countries study English doesn't mean a whole lot about Bible reading.

    As for science articles in English, etc., I've know Japanese doctors very fluent in their specialty in English who couldn't converse their way out of a paper bag in normal conversation!

    By the way, welcome to the Baptist Board! :wavey:

    Preachers here might also consider the parallel with their knowledge of Greek. To them it isn't a language, it's a code: somebody took the NASB and scrambled it around into this funny-looking code, and their job is to decode it word-by-word until it looks like the NASB again. The point being, there's a world of dfference between being able to decode another language and being able to read it. Furthermore, most of those who can read Greek tolerably well cannot even recite John 3:16, and could not compose a literate paragraph without it sounding like those instructions you sometimes get in products made in China, where none of those involved in making the instructions is a native English speaker.

    Welcome to the BB!

    First of all, Wiki isn't the most reliable of sources...

    Secondly, this is a non-sequitur to the issue at hand.

    They also teach English in the schools in Mexico, but I have yet to meet anyone who speaks English here who can comprehend the KJV. Face it- KJV English is not what is taught in schools, nor what is used in books, magazines, or newspapers.

    (If it were so easy, why did I have to go to language school and learn Spanish??)

    All that proves is what we already know about English being one of the hardest to learn languages due to it's incorporation of multiple other languages.

    habla es-spanole is definitely Spanish, but wait, many Englsih speaking people now speak it, that would grant it a place in the English dictionary very soon.

    Anyone for a cool glass of la'agua?

    Umm...are you talking about National Sword Conference or the KJB Conference mentioned in the OP? If it's the latter of the two...that meeting isn't until January.

    Although I'm interested in the one in Jan on KJV, I am also interested in the last conference. By the way young lady it was you who influenced me to renew my subscription to the Sword.:godisgood:

    I received an email that says that there are two articles by Peter Ruckman in his December BBB paper about the editor of The Sword of the Lord entitled "Shelton Smith Adopts 'Ruckmanism!'" and "Shelton Smith Finally Sees the Light!"

    LOL!! I soooo agree with you. In fact, I had to pay $140 for mine at the local Christian bookstore. It is a REAL KJB because it actually came right from Cambridge, England.

    My former IFB church had a subscription to SOTL and in 2006 I did see an ad within one of the issues that featured the choices of a 6-month subscription or a 12-month subscription for a set cost. Can't remember now what the cost was since I no longer have a copy of the issue but it was not necessarily cheap.

    I am in favor of an unbiased report on the conference.
