  1. I agree. The changes were to update spelling and grammatical problems and it still leaves the meaning intact. It's NEVER wrong to give the version of the tranlation you're reading (1611, 1763, etc) as it helps people know which year you're reading from. It's still the same Word of God as in 1611 even if it was updated for correction in 1763. Some just get far too legalistic about some things like this, and it's disconcerting at times. It's only meant to cause division, and that is one of the adversary's favorite tactics, divide and conquer! Great post, PastorMatt! A good book on the KJV is the one by Dr. David Sorenson, "Touch Not the Unclean Thing." Dr. Sorenson used to be my youth pastor when I was growing up, and his father was my pastor when I was in Illinios. David, when he first came to the Pekin, IL church I grew up in as Associate Pastor under his father, gave my mother a copy of the NASB, which was what Central Theological Seminary was allegedly pushing at that time. My mother used it for a few months and went back to the KJV. After a few years, David was researching this subject, especially since the KJV debate was becoming more prominent. I believe he did a very good job on presenting evidence in this book.

    Whats for Supper...

    Pods was obviously a typo, probably due to auto correct on my tablet. Should probably have been pigs liver. I did an online grocery shop today and searched for liver. The had lambs and pigs liver. My son in law fitted the device today.

  3. Isn't it sad that many times it's tragedy that brings is back to the Lord? We discipline our children so they’ll do what is right, so sometimes God disciplines us so we’ll turn around to follow Him. Hebrews 12:11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. For me it was a few years back when I flatlined in the hospital bed.

    Can men wear rings?

    @E MoralesWell, what about neckties? I would have thought that earrings are in a similar category as neckties. Policing earrings doesn't make sense in my humble view. PS: Someone mentioned hair; having it quite long at the top and trimmed at the sides can be an option for professional women; very broadly this is the kind of cut that my wife has had for many years; her dyed colour has varied over the years. prettydesigns dot com

  5. It's good also to remember that some believers in other countries who operate simple dispensaries in rather basic conditions will often have to make decisions on the basis of limited availability about items for ingestion based on herbs and plants, in places where there is little regulatory regime at all. It would be unwise to try to hold such believers - sometimes veteran missionaries - to what is supposedly "correct and proper" in very conservative local church circles in North America, when the situations they have faced for years are markedly different.

    Whats for Supper...

    Invicta, my old friend, please, for your own sake, PLEASE don't wait to use the device the doctors gave you. I had to wear something like that for several weeks so the doctors could take continuously monitored readings on my heart. It's important, and we don't need to lose another brother to heart problems. I don't know what Pods liver is either, and I've got many friends over in the UK. Maybe you could expound a bit. We here in the States use calves liver, beef liver, chicken liver, and in my family, some of the time deer liver. I've only seen lambs liver when I lived in Wisconsin nearly 40 years ago, except for the one time I did see it in Georgia when my wife and I lived there over 30 years ago. I tried some, and it was delicious!

  7. Thanks, @BrotherTony! Hymns can indeed encourage; especially if the content has good, Biblical content!

    I don't think what Jerry has stated is a stretch or misleading in any way, shape, or form. I think you're stretching and bending God's Word to fit your own ideology of what the Scriptures teach and preach! Ever taken a hermeneutics class Oseas? Ever tried to rightly divide the Word of God for sermons week after week, or to teach a Sunday School class? One has to try to use multiple sources to know the context of the content they are trying to disseminate. Do you? Not a slam, just questions that truly need to be answered. You also might want to get a thicker skin if you can't handle a little criticism about your posting from time to time. Many of us get criticized and have had to learn over the years to discern whether or not the bombs thrown at us are real grenades or not!

  10. @E MoralesInteresting post! In Philippians 4.3 Paul says: "And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life." The example you gave of course predates that of Philippians and relates to the Lord Jesus Himself. @E MoralesPF: Effecitve gif there...

  12. England must be quite different in what is offered in markets. here I have never even seen lambs liver for sale. I'll bet it is good. I do chicken liver quite often, but decided to take a break with the claves liver. I do the chicken liver rolled in four and slowly cooked over moderate heat until browned. I like it plain, just like I described with no added onions or gravy.

    And I thought Konstantin was wacky. Welcome to the club!! What part of noone knows the day or hour fits in with your theory that we are in the last decade - 10 years, made up of 365 days each?

  14. I've had the domain DYPF.com for over ten years. I grabbed it because it was available (four letter dot coms are rarely available) and it was the letters I put at the top of my notes when I write a novel. (Stands for "Did Your Pray First?"). So last year I went ahed and got the domain DidYouPrayFirst.org and created a blog. I'm reposting articles on prayer. I made it so each post has an automatic shortened URL using the DYPF.com domain, which redirects to the long domain and the specific post. I also have a form for people to submit articles or links to articles to be considered for inclusion. There's a wordpress plugin I found for managing prayer requests, but it's buggy, so I'm waiting to see if I have time to clean it up before I use it. Ultimately, though, I thought the DYPF acronym could become like the WWJD and people could make simple jewelry reminders, but I don't have the resources for that. https://DYPF.com / https://DidYouPrayFirst.org

  15. @Steven Yeadon The following is the link to the discussion. Take a look and feel free to ask any questions in there. Thank you. I appreciate your desire to talk Biblical issues.

  16. Steven, just FYI, this issue has been beaten to death on this message forum. You would be well advised to search out threads on Calvinism and Arminianism. You will find a lot of information there and also be able to reply to the thread.

    Many times it is difficult to understand another persons situation when you don't know all the facts. Therefore it is hard to make a valid suggestion about the situation. In this case I know where totoosart lives. He lives in a country where Christianity is not only banned, but the authorities actually seek out Christians and try to detect where and when they may be meeting. If the authorities find them or their meeting place there, can be life threatening consequences, in other words they could be arrested and even put to death. So this situation can have dire consequences for him if he is not extremely careful. Just owning a Bible or trying to give out Bibles can be dangerous.

  18. “I have also come to learn that reading the Good Book is not as easy as one might think.“ May I point out something? The book is actually very simple to read once you incorporate the proper way to study. Scripture to scripture, literal at face value.

  19. This is a very testing issue whose answer must be sought through much prayer, study of the NT especially relating to the church and with counsel from faithful and ardent men of the church.

  20. I would repeat my previous answer. I am a Biblicist. Neither John Calvin, nor Jacob Arminius, were correct in there writings. And, neither one is a standard for doctrine. If the person is seeking a good answer, and he is a just man, than your answer will help him in his quest for the truth. Proverbs 9:9 "Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning." If he is a fool, and just looking for an argument, then don't waste your time.
