    Yes, this. /\
    Calvinism’s definition of total depravity includes the inability to choose Christ.  You cannot embrace one part of the doctrine without tacitly accepting false doctrines.

    The problem with aligning to those terms is how they are defined by those groups.
    They don't mean what you mean when you say "Totally Depraved", or "perserverance" as a couple of examples.

    Well we got the bad news. The medical bills of the injured party far exceeded the maximum on our liability insurance. We are waiting on the demand letter to come now. Not only that, I forgot to mention that I was hurt the very same night with a massive rotator cuff tear on my right shoulder when I fell off the equipment trailer., Can't lift my hand above head level. I made it through the MRI but still have not been scheduled for surgery. It takes so long between scheduling for tests and dr visits. The dr wants to do a total shoulder replacement but I don't want that.

    heartstrings reacted to No Nicolaitans in Jesus   
    I just performed a quick search (in Matthew) of the name Jesus on my phone's Bible program. This is just an estimate, because I didn't do the actual math. However, I would venture to say that 99% of the instances in which Jesus' name is mentioned, it is his name alone...without Christ (or another title or identifier) attached to his name.

    Sorry to hear that. rotator cuff stuff is usually painful and has a long recovery and therapy time. I'll be praying for you as well as the bad news about the accident.

    heartstrings got a reaction from Alan in Through The Bible One Verse At A Time   
    These verses are so relevant today. People let their pit bulls roam, menace and show aggression, nobody does anything until they maim, disfigure, or kill a child (or adult). Then, after the fact, they call it an "accident".

    The Bible says that human government is intended by the Lord as a "terror" to "evil works".  Here's to praying for as many Muslims as whosoever will be saved, and our government cracking down on the rest and shipping them back to wherever they came from.

    Okay, I think we need a break from this subject for a bit. 
    Robycop, you were told that it is rude to come in and attack others’ beliefs on their own forum. I personally gave you some leniency because I believe there is room for discussion on what it means to be KJVonly. Some think the KJV supersedes the original manuscripts, yet the manuscripts are how God has preserved His Word through history. You have, however, repeatedly shown that the only authority you will accept in this area is yourself, no matter how contradictory your position may be. 
    I am hereby, in my capacity as moderator, issuing a cease and desist order. This topic is on hold for you; do not attempt to discuss it further.

    This argument is a "Straw Man" and meant to deflect answering a genuine opinion from someone else that views the subject differently. 
    I've studied the qualifications and credits of the original translators and I will take their translation abilities over yours in a heartbeat. Oh, and I'll also take their ability in the form of the KJV. 
    Please keep in mind, although I am certain you have; that this message forum is exclusively KJV and will remain so long after you have gone, as will my opinion. If you came here with the intention of changing it, or to cause trouble over our use of the KJV, you may as well give it up, you will not succeed.

    Actually, I find that much of a modern English use is dumbed down and oversimplified. We don’t use nearly the breadth of language available to us in classic English.  I have no desire to use a Bible whose language has similarly been simplified to the point it can no longer be accurate.
    The scholarly knowledge present in the KJV is also something that can hardly be replicated today. I wouldn’t trust modern “translators” to have the same language knowledge. Ever studied just how educated they were, and how many steps were taken to remove bias or inaccuracy from the text?
     The specificity provided by the singular/plural meanings of thou/you are not always discernible from the context.  And where they are, it really is a lot easier to understand the difference from the word itself, rather than studying it out through the context. Why wouldn’t you want to use what’s available?

    No. The sacrifices and observances of the law never saved anyone; it was always by grace through faith.
    King James Bible  Par ▾  hebrews 10
     
    1For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. 2For then would they not have ceased to be offered? because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. 3But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. 4For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.

    Luke 2:25-35 King James Version (KJV)
    25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.
    26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.
    27 And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,
    28 Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said,
    29 Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word:
    30 For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
    31 Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
    32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
     
    Every single verse in this passage indicates that Simeon was already a child of God, looking FORWARD toward to Christ.
    He was an "old testament saint".

    heartstrings got a reaction from PastorMatt in Rough Times   
    My son was involved in an accident, on one of our vehicles, and it looks like we will be sued. I can't go into details on here but sure could use some prayer. To compound that, it's lambing time, we have already lost 10 lambs. Then yesterday someone bought one of our pieces of skid steer/tractor equipment and, by the end of the day, severely damaged it, then stopped payment on our check. I sent their photo to the manufacturer and they said it was abused but I have received no word yet when a replacement part will be sent. I'm feeling pretty low.
