  1. Hello Pastorj That is a good question. I have found myself gravitating to that word over the years(about 30 years), when I have encountered brothers or sister in Christ, who are “teaching” things, that are not found in the Bible. Also, the more I studied the Word of God, the more I became convinced, that this was more than just a “difference of opinion”, but indeed it was a big problem. Not only does it bring real harm to the legalist, but also hurts those he ministers to, by bringing them into a kind of bondage. ------------------------ I used to have the “bad habit”, of ask
  2. This message, offers an answer, to “the problem of legalism”. ➀ First, before you stop reading, telling yourself, ..... “I am not a legalist, I just have more standards than he does!” You had better make sure, that your “standards”, are based clearly on sound Doctrine. Because if they are not, than you have a big problem. ➁ Two reasons, “legalism” is a problem, that needs to be fixed... (A) It effects your worship... “Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching [for] doctrines the commandments of men.” (Mark 7:7) If we find ourselves, teaching “Doctrines”, tha
  3. Jesus said..... "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world." John 16:33
  4. What the LORD asserts in Psalms 119 (as well as all over God's Word), is that He has "given us", His Word, so that we can know the TRUTH about Him and how to know Him better. THE "workings" of this marvellous interaction, between "a believer & God's Word", goes beyond the printed words on a page. Because "we have the actual author of the original autographs", in our hearts. And as we STUDY God's Word, the Holy Spirit reveals the TRUTH to us, at the Spiritual level that we are at. Therefore, as we STUDY God's Word DEEPER, (1)by Simply meditating on the words in our Bibles, or
  5. I heard someone say this years ago, and it is still just as truthful today, as it was then. "The Bible that I hold in my hand, is God's infallible word." Now, it is not hard to find scriptural support for this statement. Just choose any of the verses in Psalms 119.
  6. This thread is going to be about, “Growing in the faith”: And the ways the Bible describes this growth! One way “Spiritual Growth” is described in the Bible, is with food.... Can you eat.... MILK or BREAD or STRONG MEAT! And with this in mind...... Notice what Hebrews 5:14 has to say.... “But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, [even] those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.” ------------------------ As you can see, “Growing in the faith”, can be done by “exercising our senses”! Those things you “see”, “hear”,
  7. It has been a long time.... But you asked a good question. The answer to this question, has to do with the “intent” of the person printing that Bible. What I mean is “a typo”, is a “mistake” that is not intentionally put their by the publisher. Therefore, you can have small typos and large typos. Here is an example of a mid-sized typo........ (Joshua 19:2) “And they had in their inheritance Beersheba, and Sheba, and Moladah,” Half of my King James Bibles say, “Beersheba, and Sheba, and Moladah,” and the other half say.... “Beersheba, or Sheba, and Moladah,”
  8. Fake news in a blinded world: About 20 years ago(during my daily study), I found a verse that answered a question that I had about the future......... “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:” (2 Thessalonians 2:11) After thoroughly studying the context, realized that in this verse, God explains how the entire world is going to follow the anti-Christ during the tribulation. Every adult individual, that had rejected the Gospel at the moment of the rapture of the Church, will be given a “strong delusion”, to believe the anti-Christ
  9. Hello, 1Timothy1 15 Here are my 2 cents... Yes, I think you can apply it! I also apply what verse 20 has to say.... “....when ye do well, and suffer [for it], ye take it patiently....” The way I see it, is in any circumstance under the sun, if you(we), are doing the right thing and suffering, but take that suffering patiently and keep doing right, than God will wonderfully bless us! (He is me!) Have a great day
  10. But..... my hopes for a new English translation(that I can trust as much as I do the KJB), are dampened, when I am reminded of 2 Timothy 3:13 "But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived." It would be nice, if I could see a hopeful future for my grandchildren in this world; But unless I am misinterpreting, this and other passages of Scripture, the Earthly future of the Church, does not look bright! Note: If anyone can correct this view, PLEASE do so.
  11. Hello again Jordan Kurecki You asked..... So you are saying that if a Christian has a translation that has mistranslations, is missing verses, etc that it's good that they believe that it is perfect and without any error? So are you saying it's good for someone to believe something even if it isn't true? How is that good? And what do you mean "less perfect" that's two adjectives that contradict each other, an oxymoron if you would. ------------------------ You will notice, that I prefaced this with an acknowledgment that “this is not a perfect world”, so things won’t always b
  12. Good morning Jordan Kurecki I also appreciate your response. I see the importance of doing a through study of God’s Word(in it’s original languages), and I frequently turn to my old Strong’s concordance to see the true definitions of the Words of Scripture. But..... I remember all the years I successfully studied the Bible, before I even knew about Strong’s concordance. At which point, I am reminded of 1 John 2:27 "But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is tr
  13. Hello Jordan Kurecki You asked..... So when you say it’s vitally for every Christian. Do you mean English speakers? What about the foreign language speakers who’s only bibles are missing verses like 1 John 5:7? This is a good question, (Or set of questions). First of all, I don’t believe in “double inspiration”, therefore the KJB, is a perfect Bible for English speaking people. But what I am talking about is “what people believe” about their Bibles(of any language). It is not a perfect world, so we can’t eliminate all those NIV’s etc. that are out there. But any BELIEVE
