  1. The KJV translators were honest in their translation and put any word that wasn't in the original manuscript (some because basic sentence structure of hebrew isn't the same as English) in italics. So any time you see an italicized word it wasn't in the TR.
  2. Hey all, I just wanted to let you know that I am going to be following some of my own advice and won't be posting on OLB any more. I'll finish up a couple of things tonight, but if you need to contact me you can get me at zealyouthguy@gmail.com. Thanks a lot to those I've come to know through OLB as friends, it's been good to see you again.
  3. Good post Seth. Let me say this though, I know quite a few missionaries on the field and the charismatics are one of the biggest enemies of a true faith that they are facing. Much more so than what we see here in the states. I've had to temper my discussions with these missionaries because, for them, the Charismatic movement is a more a mixture of the cultural norms/habits and a false gospel than it is for most of us here in the states. That doesn't diminish the biblical support about the raising the hands at all... in fact, it underscores that perhaps we all need to study the word a bit
  4. Also, the tanakh (the Masoretic Text which would have been used by 1st century Jews) does indeed have Psalms 2 the same as ours: http://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt2602.htm
  5. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chapters_a ... _the_Bible I haven't studied this completely, but here is what Adam Clarke says (use it as a jumping off point if you will) Here is John Gill (partially) and Robertsons Word Pictures: [quoteA.

  6. John, Praying for you. There is so much that could be said, but it could all be fruitless because we aren't there and don't have contact with you and your family. I am praying for wisdom for you, your wife, and your pastor. I pray that God will lift you up through this and that He will be glorified ultimately.
  7. Bill Maher hates God and has recently made a moving (to be released) mocking religion. From what I understand (reading some reviews) is that it mocks all religions but specifically the Catholicism for christianity. Bill Maher needs God's salvation as much as any of us. I dare say that had I not been saved as a child that it could be me in his shoes. Comedy is a great medium for passing on dangerous ideas, and Bill Maher has plenty of dangerous ideas. I hope God shows (or perhaps he already has???) himself real in Bill Maher's life.
  8. Well I am certainly not defending the NIV, but probably from: Ecclesiastes 1:14 14 I have seen all the works that are done <`asah> under the sun ; and, behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit . Strong's Hebrew Dictionary 7469. r@`uwth Search for H7469 in KJVSL twer r@`uwth reh-ooth' probably from 7462; a feeding upon, i.e. grasping after:--vexation.

  9. It makes me happy to see people interested in canning. We weren't able to do a garden this year due to the timing of our move. Normally we can quite a bit of things. This year it will probably consist of applesauce and some cider, since I have one AWESOME apple tree (we call him Old Man Apple) and a couple of trees that i think will make good cider. We'll probably do some crab apple jelly soon also.
  10. Yes, we sing that song. As far as unctions (I am going to post the definition for anyone not sure), I wonder if that's a colloquial term? We prayed for the anointing of the Spirit, but the only time I've heard the word "unction" used was in reference to the Catholic sacrament. Is it a southern thing or is it prevalent everywhere and I've just not heard it before? unc
  11. Please forgive me if you have honestly have never heard of the idea of distinction between the sexes being a biblical issue. If you've never had to work through that issue in your church or your pastor has never addressed that, then I profusely apologize. Sometimes I just assume that someone who preaches/pastors would be vetted with these things and perhaps that is far less common than I think it is. So with the adjustment on my end that you've not been confronted with this before, my question really was as sincere as yours. Does playing football with boys help a young lady meet God's i
  12. Better yet, perhaps you could show us scripture of all the women that were commanded to go to war? Or conscripted into the kings armies? Or maybe you could also tell us how a young lady could remain modest kicking a football, and look distinctly different than a boy? And how does playing football with a bunch of boys help to this end? 1 Timothy 2:9-15 9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; 10 But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. 11 L
  13. Aw, Congrats Matie K! God is surely blessing you and your husband. Stay faithful. Praying for little Anita Dawn here! :pray
