  1. Doc, I would say that there are over 450 phony versions of the bible in the English language and that denominations are evil as are other religions. I agree with your second paragraph.
  2. Forty years ago very few people had ever set eyes on the Sinaiticus. I doubt many even questioned it though sure some did, I wasn't a Christian then. So, what is its chain of custody? Why is there only one copy? Who are those men and what is their relation to the text? If you do know them, why do you discount their writings about the origin of the Sinaiticus?
  3. That link is to the Sinaiticus itself, that's evidence. If you arm yourself with the basics of how scribes back in the day made copies it'll be plainly obvious. There are no jots and tittles in it either if memory serves. If you really want to know the truth, go research it for yourself, I did. If you have questions, ask. These truths are not invalid because you demand more from me than what you've seen. I gave you many nuggets of information. Here are two more, Constantine Simonides and Constantine Tischendorf. I'll reiterate a third, what is the chain of custody of the LXX, the Septuagint? Your objection reminds me of the people attempting to tear down the work of Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson, a man almost single-handedly using peoples DNA to trace man back through the ages to each of Noah's sons and man's movement across this earth which refutes the many fantasies of evolutionary thought. Often times, it's just one Christian, standing against the world, that puts forth the truth and makes changes for good. Who was that guy that single-handedly stopped the lions from eating the people in the arenas? My eyes are hurting, just got up to let the dogs out and now going back to bed.
  4. The article that the link refers to leaves out a lot of information. There were men who viewed the Sinaiticus shortly after its "discovery" and then viewed it later and noticed that portions had been purposely aged, the pages were no longer white as they had seen them earlier. if you look at the actual pages you can see this for yourself. Why is there only one copy? Nearly 1800 years had passed since the scriptures were completed and in this time there is but one copy with no chain of custody. Think about that. Doesn't that run against what God said about His Word? There's a hundred other reasons why it is a product of satan. Remember, from discovery in the 1840s until 2010, only "scholars" and select people were able to view Sinaiticus and then only parts of it as it was broken up and may remain so to this day. Regarding the Septuagint, what is its chain of custody? There's no mention of it in history but in a forged letter from the 1800s. We were told that this line came out of Egypt but it was a line that most of us bought without question. We were wrong. If you search through these forums you'll see me parroting the same thing until about 7-8 years ago when I studied it.
  5. That's quite understandable as the Sinaiticus was not available for viewing until 2010. Before that, everyone took it as gospel that it was authentic and discounted the letters from the men involved in its creation and theft. The folks in possession of it will not allow the pages or the ink to be dated. It's plainly obvious that portions of the text were purposely aged with tea or something, others are still pristine, especially those in possession by Russia. Sinaiticus would never pass a critical review of being a period work. It's not written in the way they wrote back then, there are notes and additions in the margins as the scribes uncle made changes to the text to fit his heretical views.
  6. I prayed for all involved when I first learned of this years ago. What brought you to this forum? Care to share your testimony with us?
  7. The Sinaiticus is a fraud, it was written between 1839-1844 to get a printing press from Russia. In order to give it credulity by the guy that stole it, a letter was made up referring to the Septuagint which also didn't exist. The ink this was letter was written with didn't exist until the 1800s. There is no chain of custody before the 1840s. Have a look at it on their website and you will laugh at how amateurish it is. https://codexsinaiticus.org/en/manuscript.aspx
  8. That's in reference to the scriptures being completed.
  9. The NIV is of the devil. It is a book of doubt, not faith, it contains the word of God here and there but it is not God's preserved Word. If we have to go into the whys again, I'll do it.
  10. They are the worst kind and bring so much pain and suffering. They honor God with their words but live like the devil and do not like folks who are instant in season, out of season or who reprove, rebuke and exhort them. Almost always, their names are not found in the lamb's book of life.
  11. No! And would not have married one who could not have either. My mother and her mother taught me to cook as well. My wife is the better cook, my children are great cooks. My sister burns toast and our paternal grandmother was raised high society and did not know how to cook well. She always left the strings on the birds and roasts and served them that way! Though we still eat out too much, my wife and I take turns cooking, whoever's aches and pains are less at the moment! This is not the fun part of getting old.
  12. I was just thinking about him the other day and came here looking around to see if had posted recently. No more pain and suffering and yes we'll see him again in Glory!
  13. I'm getting confused these days, I thought Local Church became Church Bible when they moved! Need more vegetables! LOL
  14. https://churchbiblepublishers.com/shop/bible-by-cover-color/black/midsize-turquoise-reference-bible-corporate-series-black/ We recently gave this as a gift to a young man courting one of my daughters. It is very similar to my Hendrickson's Minister's Bible which is why I chose it. I prefer the center references and it has a great many of them. They also have center reference bibles for $67 with leather covers as well and they now do imprinting in house. I'm going to get the same thing if my eyesight returns as the dog chewed mine up (the cover) when she was little. The text is Scrivener's update to the Cambridge I think in 1875. It's great.
  15. I saw this post and thought John81 was back! I miss John81 and JerryNumbers.
  16. The pastors of the Danbury Baptists influenced Thomas Jefferson enough to create the Bill of Rights. On a side note, one of their churches is still operating today as IFB in Wingdale, NY. Dover First Baptist Church. I have relatives who live nearby but won't go and reject the gospel because their aunt is a retired "pastor" and says we're all racists! LOL
  17. My daughter got involved with a group and they groomed her and broke up several marriages. We still have that promise in the Proverbs, "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." I would like to see that day but fear I may not be around for it.
  18. When my father was in grade school in the '50s and '60s he had a teacher tell the class that she was a Communist. She was not there the next day. My grade school experience is summed up perfectly in the book, Child Abuse in the Classroom by Phyllis Schlafly. I still have some of those perverted questionnaires that the teachers were always passing around. Curiously, my younger sister and brother have no recollection of any of these things happening. They embrace liberalism.
  19. It's not well publicized, or was not well publicized save for their own circles. I was first aware of it back about 2010 or so when GLAAD made the news saying that they would be involved with public schools in my area. By that point all of our children were out of the public school system. The straight ones are preying on the kids sexually too. It's a free for all attack on children.
  20. Absolutely not. Not even my children.
  21. Yes, and the Holy Ghost showed me why and I repented and they were then answered, almost every time! Other verses teach us that we have to be in fellowship with the Lord for him to hear us.
  22. By their fruits we know them, we can know after a time whether one is saved or not. It's not a mystery. Despite the enormous attention and energy my wife and I spent with our oldest daughter, she is living a depraved lifestyle now and also calls herself a Christian. She's made three professions of faith that I'm aware of over the years and shows no remorse for her actions over the years. Her name is not in the lamb's book of life. I pray that she turn from her wicked ways and makes repentance to God and puts her trust in Jesus. We grieve for the future of our grandson. It is my prayer that he become a preacher and lead his mother to Christ.
  23. Most teachers in public education are lost, depraved sinners and Satan uses them with impunity to destroy children. Most do not know they are being used and most do not even know that they are fellow travelers and useful idiots.
