    That's why the KJV isn't called the New Bishops bible. It was meant to be an an authoritative revision of all those that came before it. Modern Critical text revisions by their very nature are not authoritative works as they exclude the tradition of those faithful works that came before them in favor of "new discoveries" of manuscripts not historically used and passed down in the churches. The NKJV while claiming authoritative lineage favors and inserts into its text critical text revisions of doubtful origin and therefor it is not a KJV nor faithful to the text it claims to merely "update".

    The US bill by Rep. Rush, HR6666, the 'Contact Tracing,' and the other items mentioned in the video I uploaded, are not nonsense. Once the governor of any state declares an 'medical emergency,' the Governor could, and would, make it all 'mandatory.' Also, as one example, if you look in the HR 6666 bill you read these words, " ... and related activities" can mean anything the health tester deems related; which includes quarantine where they deem necessary. Also, HR 6666 states," ...such as contact tracing." 'Contact Tracing' is insidious and the health tester can make any decision for any one of the individuals the person 'infected' had contact with. Also, the HR 666 is clear in its meaning the 'contact tracing' is only one example of the powers that the health person can use. Also, HR 6666 states, "...and for other purposes." That means that whatever purpose the person conducting the tests deems necessary to prevent the spread of the disease has the authority to whatever he deems necessary. All decisions are taken out of the hand of the individuals tested and the health tester makes the decision what to do. The entire video was a good video and not nonsense. In the last few months we have seen Governors of the States, local mayors, and medical personnel take away our Constitutional rights, force us to stay at home, force us to wear masks, force us to loose our jobs, and force churches to close due to a 'medical emergency.' "Contact Tracing' will enable local, untrained, medical personnel, come into our homes due to a 'medical emergency' and make whatever decision the deem necessary. No, the video was not nonsense, it is perfectly sensible, right, and correct in the dangers of HR 6666, and the other items in they video.

    Ahhh, but here is my problem with your above statement. You continue to use the two phrases, "Fundamentals of the Faith" and "secondary issues." However, these phrases are NOT found in God's Word; therefore, we cannot acquire a direct Biblical definition for these phrases. As such, these phrases are able to be defined according to our own preferences/agendas. How then do we define the "line of separation" according to a BIBLICAL definition thereof? How do we define "Fundamentals of the Faith" from GOD'S OWN WORD? How do we define "secondary issues" from GOD'S OWN WORD? Now, I myself have presented an actual teaching on separation from GOD'S OWN WORD, as per 1 Timothy 6:3-5. According to that teaching of GOD'S OWN WORD the matter for separation is NOT the "Fundamentals of the Faith" versus "secondary issues." Rather, according to the teaching of GOD'S OWN WORD in that passage, the matter for separation is "if ANY man" (believer or unbeliever) teaches contrary "to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness." This is how GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT HIMSELF defines the matter of doctrinal separation. As for me, I prefer to follow God the Holy Spirit on the matter of separation rather than man-made definitions and paradigms on the matter. By the way, the phrase, "come out from among them, and be ye separate" is found in 2 Corinthians 6:16. The context for this verse encompasses 2 Corinthians 6:14-18. 2 Corinthians 6:14 begins, "Be ye not unequally yoked together with UNBELIEVERS . . . ." Even so, this passage is NOT about separation from those who teach and/or hold to false doctrine. Rather, this passage is about separation from UNBELIEVERS simply because they are unbelievers. The "them" of 2 Corinthians 6:16 from whom we are to "come out" and be "separate" are the UNBELIEVERS of 2 Corinthians 6:14. Now, 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 DOES indeed apply to the Biblical doctrine of separation, but NOT concerning separation over false teaching and from false teachers (which is taught in passages such as 1 Timothy 6:3-5). Brother DaChaser, my counsel (for what it may be worth to you) is that - if you really want to stand for Biblical truth, then you should bring forward a whole lot more actual Scripture into your communications and discussions, and that you should spend much more time actually exegeting those Scriptural passages according to their grammar and context.

    Revelation Bible Study.

    Ezekiel 45:1-8, “The Dividing of the land of Israel According to the Tribes of Israel.” Introduction The context of Ezekiel 45:1-8 is within the context of the ‘visions of God’ starting in Ezekiel 40:1 and continuing to the end of the book of Ezekiel 48:35. The ‘visions of God’ in this complete section of Ezekiel of the Tabernacle are literal, and cannot be construed, or interpreted, in any allegorical sense of the word. Also, the description of the Tabernacle, the offerings, the Levites, the Prince, the ceremonies, the courts, have not been fulfilled in the building of the Temple as recorded in Ezra 6-10, nor can it be a description of Herod’s Temple, nor can it be the Temple built during the 7-Year Tribulation Period, nor in any physical, or spiritual, sense of the word since Ezekiel penned the prophecy. Therefore, the building of the Tabernacle as described by the prophecy of Ezekiel is future. Since the scripture is very clear that the Apostle John clearly states that in the New Jerusalem, and the New Earth, there is no temple. “And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.” (Revelation 21:22). The only possible point in time, as far as the scriptures are concerned, that the prophecy of Ezekiel can be fulfilled as written, is during the 1000-Year Reign of Christ as depicted in Revelation 20:4-8.

    And that reveals one of the differences between us - I do NOT hold to "historical orthodoxy" as my authority for doctrine and behavior. Rather, I hold to GOD'S OWN WORD as my authority for doctrine and behavior. (Which is probably one of the reasons that my posts in this thread discussion have included actual Scriptural quotations and explanations for support, while yours have lacked actual Scriptural quotations.)

    Brother DaChaser, I do indeed believe that an individual can be a fellow believer through faith in Christ and yet disagree concerning the doctrine of the Second Coming, the doctrine of baptism, etc. However, I do NOT believe that the Biblical doctrine of separation limits separation only from unbelievers. In fact, in accord with 1 Timothy 6:3-5 I believe that the Biblical doctrine of separation requires me to separate from "ANY" individual (believer or unbeliever) who teaches contrary "to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness." This thread discussion is not about how we define who is a fellow believer. Rather, this thread discussion is about those from whom we should and will separate. Thus far you seem to be limiting the "line of separation" only in relation to unbelievers. I am contending that GOD'S OWN WORD also instructs us to separate from fellow believers in some cases.

    I have a few "tears" in my heart, yet a joyous smile on my face. First, I received some very godly counsel from my sister in Missouri concerning this matter. She goes to a little baptist church there that uses the KJV. Her suggestions were very simple, but also quite wise. Considering the things shared in this thread along with her thoughts truly gave me a peace. I have continued to pray about it all, but also truly cast the burden of it to the Lord, and have been waiting upon Him. (I just wanted to clarify that in the previous post that I made when speaking of James 1:4, I said a couple of times "TO ME..." because that is the way I take it - to me, why change a word that is easy to understand as is, to another word that is supposedly synonymous? Again, I'm very thankful to be fully persuaded about the KJV.) Just today, my husband was able to kindly and respectfully address the question to our pastor. There is no way that I can verbalize our pastor's response, but that is why I started this post as I did. I have a joyous smile because the Lord answered my prayers, but I am saddened by the pastor's response. Perhaps we are "marked and viewed" as "more staunch" about the KJV now, but we will not be contentious or divisive about it. Is this just the beginning of a "downward slide" (as Ukulelemike referred to it as)? O how I love the folks in our little church... I am so glad that the Lord knows my heart. James 1:5

    The prophet Ezekiel prophesied, “Moreover, when ye shall divide by lot the land for inheritance, ye shall offer an oblation unto the LORD, an holy portion of the land: the length shall be the length of five and twenty thousand reeds, and the breadth shall be ten thousand. This shall be holy in all the borders thereof round about.” Ezekiel 45:1 The Lord is audibly explaining to the prophet Ezekiel how they should divide the land for the sanctuary of God and for the inheritance of the people. The ‘land’ is clearly physical land, it cannot be heaven, and it cannot be spiritual, and allegory nor a reference to the any ‘inheritance to church age saints. The ‘Inheritance’ of the Saints in the Church In speaking to the saints in Colosse, and therefore to all of the saints in the church age, the apostle Paul states, “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.” Colossians 3:23-24. If a saint in whatsoever he does, does it heartily as to the Lord, he will receive an inheritance. In the book of Ephesians chapter 1, the apostle Paul, among other spiritual truths, as an example, lets the saints in Ephesus know that the Holy Spirit, at the moment of salvation is the ‘earnest,’ or the down payment if you please, of our inheritance (Ephesians 1:13-14). The ‘earnest’ of the Holy Spirit to all saints in the Church Age is a ‘spiritual’ blessing. All of our blessings, all of the inheritance that Paul writes about in the book of Ephesians is ‘spiritual’ in ‘heavenly places. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” Ephesians 1:4 The apostle Peter clearly stated that the inheritance of the saints in the church are in heaven. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you.” 1 Peter 1:3-4 The ‘inheritance’ of the saints in the church are spiritual and in heaven. There are no physical promises of an inheritance of any kind, especially that of ‘land,’ to the saints in the church. Therefore, the ‘land’ as mentioned by the prophet Ezekiel is not for the church. Furthermore, the ‘land’ that Ezekiel is referring to is the physical land of Israel and the ‘ye’ is therefore the leaders of the nation of Israel.

    You need to watch this video. The WHO, George Soros, the Clinton's, the Communists, and many US governors, are using the COVID-19 pandemic to enact legislation to determine, with their own ideas, who is isolated, to come into homes to take away children from parents, and to force everyone to provide their daily contacts. These individuals and government representatives are using fear tactics to take away our personal freedoms, the freedom to worship and the freedoms within our very homes. Also, they absolutely do not care about our Bill of Rights nor the Constitution of the United States.

    Indeed. And as per my above posting, I hold that I am required by and before the Lord my God, in accord with the command of His Own Word, to separate from "any man" who teaches contrary to the "wholesome words" of our Lord Jesus Christ and "to the doctrine which is according to godliness," regardless of whether that "any man" is a fellow believer, or not. I wonder if you have Biblical support for your position on separation, or if you have simply chosen to follow a man-made paradigm on separation. Remember that the DOCTRINE of separation is a doctrine of God's Own Word. Therefore, any position that we take concerning separation SHOULD have Biblical support. Now, if your position on separation DOES have Biblical support, I request that you present the Biblical support thereof.
  12. 2 points
    So, let us consider one passage from God's Own Word, wherein we are taught the principle of separation over doctrine. 1 Timothy 6:3-5 -- "If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; he is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself." Herein God's Own Word does not define the matter according to "the fundamentals of the faith," nor does God's Own Word reference a category of "secondary issues." Rather, herein God's Own Word instructs us to engage in separation (to withdraw ourselves) if an individual is teaching contradictory to (1) the wholesome words of our Lord Jesus Christ and to (2) the doctrine which is in accord with godliness. So then, to consider some of the examples that I mentioned above, over which I myself would engage in separation -- If an individual is teaching contrary to Biblical truth on these matters, are they teaching contrary to the wholesome words of our Lord Jesus Christ and/or to the doctrine which is in accord with godliness. (Indeed, as I write this I am thinking of another example that is much in our cultural context -- If an individual holds contrary to the Biblical definition of marriage, I will engage in separation (withdraw myself) from that individual.) Note: If we still want to maintain the idea of "fundamental" doctrines, then I will present myself as follows -- There are fundamental doctrines to Biblical interpretation. I will separate over them. There are fundamental doctrines to a Biblical world-view. I will separate over them. There are fundamental doctrines to Biblical Christianity. I will separate over them. There are fundamental doctrines to Biblical salvation. I will separate over them. There a fundamental doctrines to a Biblical church. I will separate over them. There are fundamental doctrines to Biblical sanctification and to Biblical godliness. I will separate over them. Etc.

    Thoughts on a Good NKJV study Bible

    Wait a minute my friend Tyndale. First of all, the NKJV states very clearly that it a new edition of the KJV and not a revised edition. Dr. Stauffer is comparing the KJV with NKJV and has clearly shown that they are different in doctrinal issues. Therefore, Dr. Stauffer, through his clear examples of the corruption and perversion of NKJV has shown that, as he mentioned in the video, the NKJV is "BLASPHEMOUS TRASH."

    Separation over doctrine.

    I disagree. I hold - Sound Christian doctrine as expressed in the the Bible, God's Own Word, ALONE!!! I care not at all concerning "historical confessions and creeds of the faith. I care not at all concerning the man-made paradigm of so-called "orthodoxy." God's Own Word is my ONLY and FINAL authority for belief and behavior.!!! (Indeed, a significant difference between us.) "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." (See 2 Timothy 3:16) No historical confession or creed of the faith was given by inspiration of God. Why then would I step down from that which is God-inspired to that which is man-made? As for me, I will NOT!!!

    Sin is the symptom and not the disease. Sin is born of lust, which comes from a rebellious heart. Until one repents by turning back to God by faith in Christ, they cannot be saved from sin. It is not the repentance of sin that brings grace but rather repentance of rebellion by turning in humility to God. Romans 2:4-5 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance? 5 but after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; James 1:13-16 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: 14 but every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. 15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. 16 Do not err, my beloved brethren. James 4:5-7 5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? 6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Here is my view of why the word "repent" is not in the book of John: We studied the subject of repentance in Sunday School at our church and went through every bible passage which used the word. I f anyone is interested in those lessons, they can be found here:

    My wife left me almost a year and a half ago. I've struggled between knowing the marriage wasnt working but also knowing the commitment I made to God to stay with her. I didn't want to split, but knew she wasn't happy. I've sort to reconcile but each time come to the point that the marriage just won't work. Anyway, she doesn't seem to be following God now and it's been over a year separated. There is the thought of 'sweeping her off her feet' .. but that isn't how I operate.

    Brother DaChaser, he means that there are more possible options to "identify by" than just "Calvinistic" or "Arminian." (Likely, Brother McWhorter made this declaration because those who hold to the Calvinistic/Reformed position so commonly indicate that if you are not Calvinistic, then you MUST be Arminian - as if there are ONLY these two options, and no others.)

    When dealing with the difference between 'God sovereignly decided, before the foundations of time, who would be saved and who would go to hell', and then commands them ALL to be saved or go to hell' as opposed to 'whosoever will', THAT is doctrine-in fact, it covers a few doctrines, like the sufficiency of the sacrifice of Christ, whether man has free will to choose to follow or reject, and such. That is doctrine.

    I don't believe the KJV text should be changed at all. it should be the 1611 edition, as that was the original one, and all its makers are long-dead, freezing their work in time. And I'd like to see the translators' preface, "To The Reader" included, as well as the Apocrypha placed between the Testaments, as the AV 1611 has.

    The Bible has dual authorship. There are mistakes and inaccuracies in it because it was written by "holy men of God" (2 Peter 1:21). The text of the Bible is "the word of men" (1 Thess. 2:13), which is clear to everyone. KJV1611AV calls these men according to their names (the 47 persons). But these men "were moued by the holy Ghost" (2 Peter 1:21). Therefore, the Author of the prophetic meaning of Bible verses is God. God's Word is "a more sure word of prophecie"(2 Peter 1:19), than "the word of men" (1 Thess. 2:13). The prophetic meaning of Bible verses is hidden from unbelievers.
