    byhisstrength reacted to KiwiChristian in Soulmate   
    I'm just guessing here, but I think Krishna can also be an Indian surname, so it may well stand for "Mohan Krishna", i.e. the person's name.

    I can kind of relate to the original poster, but my prayer is for a godly wife (if it is ultimately the Lord's will for me to marry) rather than a "soulmate" as such.

    The only thing about culture is, honestly....if culture doesn't change God's Word, shouldn't men wear robes too? I fully understand God changes not...but men's dress has changed...

    Trell might ask himself if God is subject to culture, or if His Word applies to all ages and all generations regardless of mans "culture". Some of these argument are down right silly; Scottish men do not have to wear kilts, they choose to; women wearing pants is a choice also, and as Jerry said, many are looking for a "loophole" to justify their whims and traditions.

    As for "Standing firm" I will not even bother to address it, it sounds as if he is stuck in the dispensational thing that rips out most of the O.T. because it was written to the Jew. Reminds me of the penknife incident where Jehudi cut out the parts of the scroll he did not like.

    Jer 36:20 And they went in to the king into the court, but they laid up the roll in the chamber of Elishama the scribe, and told all the words in the ears of the king.
    Jer 36:21 So the king sent Jehudi to fetch the roll: and he took it out of Elishama the scribe's chamber. And Jehudi read it in the ears of the king, and in the ears of all the princes which stood beside the king.
    Jer 36:22 Now the king sat in the winterhouse in the ninth month: and there was a fire on the hearth burning before him.
    Jer 36:23 And it came to pass, that when Jehudi had read three or four leaves, he cut it with the penknife, and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the roll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth.

    The King James Bible is a "Bible". Do they not teach what the word bible means?

    The Word God preserves is His Word. If God has preserved His Word as it has been translated into another language, whether English or any other language, that preserved Word is God's Word for that language. God doesn't have to "re-inspire" His Word each time it's copied or translated. God preserves His Word, which means the inspiration given in the original carries over through His preservation into other languages and copies.

    byhisstrength reacted to irishman in The "kjb"   
    Wait a minute! You have been indoctrinated by some college professors, and now speak as an expert. For one thing (and I ask this merely to make a point) how do you know that the KJB is not inspired? Where does the Bible say there is only a one-time inspiration? There are many things to consider in this topic, but to put the KJB equal to the others is sacrilegious if not blasphemous, at least that's my opinion.

    If we do not have the absolute truth today, we can blame God for not telling us when we stand before Him. You cannot be right if you don't know what is right. The KJB is not only the BEST. but the TRUE and only Bible period.

    byhisstrength got a reaction from HappyChristian in Are there any biblical grounds for divorce?   
    God makes a way for every situation to be handled, including divorce. My parents were divorced when I was young, but they were not saved either, but it turned out to be for our (my brothers and mine) good. I know that sounds strange, but the Bible says train up a child in the way he should go and he will not depart from it. My father had a wicked life, much of I being the oldest child had to witness, I also have three half brothers, all wicked and they had my father in the house all their lives. I love my father and respect him, but think his leaving was the best thing he could do for us.

    byhisstrength got a reaction from Wilchbla in Are there any biblical grounds for divorce?   
    Can we all agree that God does not condone divorce, but since we are all children of God and are forgiven, that would include a Christian filing for divorce. Don't you think God would forgive a person who gets divorced over some abominable circumstances?

    Regardless of what we feel about divorce, we are not in the situations that some of these people were in that caused them to file for divorce in the first place. Just like everything else in life, God allows marriage and or divorce to happen for a reason. Does He like divorce? No. But God is loving, forgiving, and merciful to all of us, even if a couple were to divorce.

    byhisstrength reacted to JerryNumbers in Merry Christmas   
    No, I'm not, the story about Jesus birth is given to us in the Bible, & even tells us He was born in a manger, about the wise men that sought Him out while he was quite young to worship him.

    He did grow up on this earth from a baby, there's many witness to that, & was with us on earth for about 33 years finally giving His life on the cross so we could have life.

    No, not straining nothing, just holding to the Holy Scriptures leaving nothing out that tells us about the day Jesus was born as a baby along with some of the happening during that time period, while you seem to claim you cannot find a local church that's good enough for you. I will agree in part, in some areas of this country there are no good churches. Yet one thing we must remember, if we found the perfect church, them we would mess it up by becoming a member.

    The little baby was both, fully God & fully man whose birth we are told of, & He proved to be the perfect sacrifice after having lived a life of some 33 years on this earth.

    byhisstrength reacted to Brother Rick in Video: What's the Big Deal about the King James Version of the Bible? By Sam Gipp   
    This is blatant heresy and I'm surprised an admin hasn't struck it down yet, and so I will. I started this thread, I can close it.

    SFIC is adding an additional requirement to salvation that is not found anywhere in the Scriptures. He has tried to be reasoned with, but he is too stubborn to listen. He has tried to make the case that because there are grievous errors in the modern versions when they speak of Christ that the gospel message in them point to a false Christ.

    He has stubbornly ignored the following facts:

    1. To say that modern Bibles point to a false, sinful Christ across the board is incorrect. There are plenty of clear-cut passages in modern versions that portray Christ as the sinless Son of God, and that salvation is to be received by grace through faith in the atonement of Christ. As one brother pointed out, an error about Jesus in one portion of a modern version does not negate the many other places where the version gets it right, just like writing "the Devil is a good guy" in the back of a KJB doesn't negate the potential power of the KJB when put into use. A modern version is in that sense no different than a gospel tract. The tract is not inspired, it is not the word of God, it may contain parts of the word of God, but most importantly it may be used to lead others to Christ.

    2. God has used imperfect instruments in the past and still does. God used a womanizer (Samson), a donkey (Balam's), an egomaniac (Saul), a hooker (Rahab), and a murderer (David). God used them and many more, and many times God in His grace has used imperfect people while in a backslidden condition. Why? Because He's a gracious and merciful God and He understands that we are but dust. God uses imperfect instruments all the time, including imperfect Bibles.

    3. Salvation is in the gospel of Jesus Christ, and that gospel gives no limits as to how to communicate it. Many people were saved after watching The Passion of the Christ, regardless of the fact that Mel Gibson is a sleazy Catholic. There are preferred ways to give out the gospel, and we should always strive for the best, but we cannot limit God. To say that the modern versions point to a false Christ in some areas so no one can be saved out of them at all would also mean that Charismatics, Nazarenes, and Calvinists can't ever lead someone to the Lord either because they are off on a few things about God.

    4. To say that one must be saved out of a KJB is adding an additional requirement to salvation and is akin to mixing faith with works. If nothing else, it is Pharisaical and elitist, and it reeks of "us four and no more." Jesus rebuked this kind of thinking when He said, "for he that is not against us is on our part," in Mark 9:40. To say that people that are packing NIVs or NKJVs are against us because their Bibles are tainted would only further demonstrate the ridiculousness of SFIC's position. In the past this brother has come out and said that if a person dies in a backslidden state they were never saved to begin with, which is right on down the line with the Calvinist position of "Perseverance of the Saints" and the Roman Catholic doctrine of dying in a "state of grace." SFIC has a pattern of trying to, while I'm sure inadvertently, mix faith with works when it comes to salvation and adding additional requirements that are not found in the Bible. Anyone can take a verse here and there and twist it to try and prove an idea that the weight of Scripture does not support, and that is exactly what is going on here.

    5. The fruit and testimonies of multitudes of Christians across the globe prove this to be wrong. This is not the primary reason he is wrong, but it an important one. To say that one must be saved out of a King James Bible, and that anything else is a false conversion, would immediately negate the ministry and salvation of thousands of missionaries and Christians across the globe that are forced to use a corrupt version because there is no King James Bible in their language. SFIC's doctrine has suddenly destroyed their profession of faith, any fruit in their life, and any hope they have for Heaven. They are all bound for Hell because they do not have the perfect word of God in their language. Even here in America there are many Christians that love the same God the KJVOers love, and they pray to the same God, and they witness of the same Gospel and the same Jesus. I have firsthand knowledge and experience with people in this country and others that are very truly saved, but do not have or use a King James Bible. The fact that SFIC ignores this makes me wonder if he spends too much time in an ivory tower and not enough outsides actually dealing with real people, because this point is abundantly clear to anyone with any common sense and spiritual discernment.


    I started this thread to show everyone what I think is a great video that can be used to help others see the truth behind the King James Only movement. SFIC took it upon himself to hijack the thread and show the world the ugly side of the KJVO movement.

    Not anymore.

    byhisstrength got a reaction from Brother Rick in Video: What's the Big Deal about the King James Version of the Bible? By Sam Gipp   
    Jesus gave an example of what we are to do with those who do not quite quote the Gospel word for word.

    "And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great. And John answered and said, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name; and we forbad him, because he followeth not with us. And Jesus said unto him, Forbid him not: for he that is not against us is for us." - Luke 9:48-50.

    You do not have to know all of the Bible to lead someone to Christ, that is what Dr. Gipp is saying, We know the death, burial and resurrection to be the Gospel, that is the Gospel. The second a person gets saved they can tell another how to get saved by giving their testimony, without having known any of the Bible other than how to get saved. (Example the woman at the well, the lame beggar in from of the Temple, as soon as they got saved they ran to tell others, not knowing anything else, but how Jesus saved them). All anyone needs to be saved is to know that Jesus died to save them and that only He can save them. Now, once they receive Christ, that is when they need to learn which Bible is the true Word of God. That is how I look at it anyway.

    byhisstrength got a reaction from Standing Firm In Christ in Video: What's the Big Deal about the King James Version of the Bible? By Sam Gipp   
    This is my last comment on this matter, yes, it is possible to be saved without Scripture, I got saved without Scripture and if you tell me that I am not saved because I did not hear Scripture at that time then you are wrong. If you are trying to say that the kids in my Sunday school class are not saved because they did not hear King James Scripture word for word than you are also wrong. Believing in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and accepting Him saves you and only believing in Jesus Christ and accepting Him saves you, Scripture confirms your salvation. Yes, the KJV is the true Word of God, but like I said earlier, no one is going to stop you and ask you what Bible version you are using.

    What a person needs to hear from the plan of salvation is 5 things, 1. I am a sinner 2. The price for sin is death and hell 3. Jesus died to pay that price, He was buried and three days later arose, to give us victory over death. 4. God has a gift, that gift is eternal life through Jesus Christ. 5. To receive His gift you need to believe the last four things and ask Jesus to save you.

    "That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." - John 3:15-18.

    There are a lot of churches out there that are ignorant to the fact that they have the wrong Bible, but they know the Gospel, they have just been misguided. You have no right to say that someone is not saved because they were quoted Bible verses that did not come from the King James Bible. That must mean that people before the King James was published are not saved either. It is not our job to question anyone's salvation, but to guide them once they are saved.

    byhisstrength reacted to Seth Doty in Video: What's the Big Deal about the King James Version of the Bible? By Sam Gipp   
    So, you say if something that is the truth comes from a less than ideal source that somehow makes it no longer the truth? Your wrong. Balaam was a false teacher that is most likely in hell, yet he spoke the word of God on several occasions. Caiaphas the high priest spoke the word of God in John 11:49-52 though he was a major player in the crucifiction of Christ. The truth remains the truth unless something is added to it or taken away from it that changes it. At what point do you draw the line? If someone was to secretly write "Jesus was a liar" in the back of your copy of the KJV without you knowing would that false statement now written in your bible mean someone couldn't get saved from reading your copy of the KJV? Silly I know, but not much more silly than you claiming the source one hears the gospel from determines whether or not a person is saved rather than simply repentance and faith toward God in the heart through the truth of the gospel itself regardless of the source.

    byhisstrength got a reaction from John81 in Video: What's the Big Deal about the King James Version of the Bible? By Sam Gipp   
    Do you think that a person headed for hell is going to stop you from telling them how Jesus can save them from hell and ask what text are you using? No, all they want to know is how to be saved. I got saved from a TV show and he did not even read Scripture. I got saved because I believed that Jesus died to pay for my sins, that He was buried and resurrected three days later and the only way I can be saved is by Him. I did not hear Scripture to believe that, after I got saved and began reading the Bible that is when everything else fell into place.

    I teach 4 year olds about Jesus I cannot quote multiple verses of Scripture to them word for word. You mean to tell me they are not saved because I did not quote word for word Scripture to them?

    We grow in Christ as we learn of Him after we are saved, thousands of people are presented the Gospel, the death, burial, and resurrection of a sinless Christ. You do not need Scripture to believe that. Anyone who is saved, even someone who just got saved 5 minutes ago can tell someone how to get saved not knowing word for word Scripture. My 4 year olds can tell someone about Jesus.

    The Holy Spirit guides us, now if they corrupt it and preach another Gospel, then I agree, they are not presenting the truth, therefore, they would not be saved.

    Most of us who devoutly believe and defend the King James Bible are well aware of how "stupid" "ignorant" "backward" "cultic" "unloving" and "narrow minded" we are IN YOUR EYES.

    You do not need to tell us again, we heard you the first time and have been hearing you for hundreds of years. The trouble is that we are a loyal and faithful lot finding it difficult to change our stand and beliefs. Even with all of your books, magazines, articles, and posts, you have not given us any evidence, either material or Spiritual, to show that you offer us anything better than what we already have. In fact there is absolutely no evidence to suggest that you could even offer us anything as good as we have!

    Therefore to listen to your insults, blasphemies, and offers, is a repeat of history and a waste of our time but we thank you for your concern (you did come out of true concern didn't you?) but we are really not interested in your offers.

    We will however pray that you come to know and believe in something to the point that you are willing to stand as a true defender of the faith in the face of any and all opposition just as most of us do.

    [i]We DO however stand with open invitation to all who come sincerely seeking the truth in the matter of the King James Bible versus the Modern Versions.[/i] I don't know of a single KJBible defender who will lie to you or twist History or the Scriptures to make a point. If any do then they have other problems that need dealt with before the Lord and have no fellowship with the true defenders of God's Word.

    We ask the seeker to look beneath all the hype and the arguments found in every public KJBible forum, for the devil sends such events to keep you discouraged and in the dark. Be not detoured from your mission of truth, for in the end the Spirit of God will testify to the Spirit in you as to what is true and what is not.

    But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: John 15:26

    I feel it is time I bring this back up to the top. It seems we go in circles talking about these issues and neither side gets anywhere. It is a waste of my time and yours if you will not listen to answers when they are given. If you do not like our stand that is fine just remember that you are the one who came here to fellowship with us.

    Not going to find any of that in my church, while the pastor does not shun anyone, he will make sure that the church knows where he and God stands on the matter. We have had lesbians come to our church, unmarried couples, people who are divorced, etc. he will not alter God's Word for any of it, eventually those who are living in sin end up leaving on their own, no doubt of their convictions.

    I too have been reading Leviticus, everytime I read Exodus through Deuteronomy I cannot help but think of how wretched I am and how blessed I am to be a sinner saved by grace.

    What upsets me is pastors that all these things and the things that the pastor get away with, I was listening to the news the other day and a minister got caught exposing himself in the woods with anotehr man. That is not a true church and is a disgrace and insult to God. It's really sad that they call themselves Christians. My pastor said a few weeks ago, we all have this sin nature, some just choose to take it as far as they can go, but God still loves them.
