  1. My uncle is a Seventh Day Adventist, and his wife has followed him into the religion. I do admire my uncles' commitment, but unfortunately many of those commitments are extra-Biblical at best. He won't even use a toll road on Saturday. For example, he refuses to eat meat. I think Jesus made it clear in Matthew 15 that we can eat whatever, because it's what comes out of a man's mouth that makes him unclean rather than what goes in. Also, Paul said in 1st Timothy 4 I believe that a certain doctrine of demons forbids men to eat meat (and also to marry) and that all food is meant to be received with thanksgiving. Not to mention, Peter had a vision in the book of Acts where God declared all food clean.
  2. Hi BaptistGirl. I came in on this subject a little late so forgive me if I'm repeating what has already been said. I'll sum up for you why I choose to read the King James Bible. The King James Bible is the only Bible that does not include specific manuscripts which were discovered in Egypt during the translation process. These manuscripts water down scripture and change small phrases which give a completely different meaning than the original. Just a brief outline, the NKJV omits the word "repent" 44 times and the word "blood" 23 times. As for the meaning being changed... Hebrews 10:4 is changed from "are sanctified" to "are being sanctified." 1st Corinthians 1:18 is changed from "are saved" to "are being saved." I used to be a huge fan of the NIV, until I bought a NIV / KJV parallel Bible. I noticed that the NIV leaned way toward doing things ourselves and the KJV leaned more toward depending on God. For example... 2nd Timothy 2:15 (NIV) - Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. 2nd Timothy 2:15 (KJV) - Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. At first glance those two do not seem much different. Think about it though. Do your best to handle the word of truth. Well that could just mean giving the Gospel couldn't it? "Rightly dividing the word of truth" leads me to believe I must be on my feet, testing what I hear against the Word of God. Satan uses scripture, and he waters it down and misuses it. That's what he did with Jesus. He simply left some of it out. Satan quoted Psalm 91:11-12, only he left out the phrase "to keep thee in all thy ways." That's basically what these new translations do. They leave out subtle words which change the meaning just by a hair, but just enough to throw off somebodies theology. Subtlety is a characteristic of Satan (Genesis 3:1)
  3. He's not talking about the actual usage of the word Hell, but in the context of which it was used.
  4. We know that if we say we have no sin, we are lying. (1st John 1:8, 10) But if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1st John 1:9) Many Christians get the idea that once we're saved, we'll just walk up to the pearly gates, slap Jesus five, and walk right in like we own the place. That's just simply not the case. 2nd Corinthians 5:10 says that "we" will all stand before the judgment seat of Christ to receive the things done in the body, whether good or bad. When Paul ways "we" he means.... well... "we." The unsaved will be judged according to God's standard of righteousness, which is perfection. Therefore, they will all be cast into the lake of fire. The saved will be judged according to their service to Christ. 1st Corinthians 3:10-15 is a good passage for that. Some people will rule in Heaven, some will have much treasure, some will have several crowns, and so on. The work we do for Christ here on earth will directly impact our eternity. If we are sinning and not focusing on our work for Him, of course we will not receive any rewards in Heaven.
