    Anyone in your church not a Dispensationalist?

    Your attitude And words speak for themselves. James 1:26 KJV [26] If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain. James 3:9-14 KJV [9] Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. [10] Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be. [11] Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? [12] Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. [13] Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. [14] But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.

    The Body of Jesus

    I’m not sure I understand the question, Jesus body was laid in a tomb, then after his resurrection his body was transformed and changed much like ours will be. See 1 Corinthians chapter 15.

    Let's discuss study bibles (and other KJV Bibles)

    I actually have been using the King James Study bible in full color from Nelson; previously it was called the Liberty Annotated Study Bible. I really love it and of all the Study bibles I have used I have found it most helpful. The center column margins have a lot of alternative translations of words/definitions of words/literal translations/etc and I have found them extremely helpful, the notes are also pretty fundamental and helpful, not that I agree with everything they say..but the KJV study bible from Nelson is a whole lot better than say a Scofield or Ryrie in my opinion. I know some people don’t like study bibles and that’s ok, just realize it’s not a whole different than hearing your Pastor teach on a specific verse, I understand that the word of God is the final authority, but let’s face it, we don’t understand bible culture as well as others and we can benefit greatly from men of God who have gone before us and spend years studying, we don’t need to reinvent the wheel.

    The Morality Behind Christian Women Wearing Pants

    I think it would do some people well to consider what makes something a man’s garment or a woman’s garment. Because the Bible does not spell it out specifically. The answer is that culture dictates what a man’s garment is and what a woman’s garment, which is why men wear kilts in Scotland but not in America. I think the problem is an unwillingness to admit to ourselves that culture does in fact determine certain things associated with gender. I also think we need to realize that 1970s American Fundamentalist culture is not identical to biblical morality. I know some will object and say “but we should let the Bible dictate to us our culture”, well if that’s the case the only true biblical culture was that which was given to the Israelites in the OT, so unless you want to follow all of those laws then your out of luck, I believe God intends for us to follow the biblical principles within our culture and obviously where there are differences then we follow the Bible, for instance fornication is always wrong regardless of what the culture says. I also find it interesting that the Bible says so much about men having beards, yet the same fundamentalists who so strongly condemn pants on woman and refuse to make any allowance for change in culture are so quick to condemn beards as worldly based on the cultural change of the hippie movements of the 70s. It’s hypocrisy.

    The Morality Behind Christian Women Wearing Pants

    I will say that I have known girls who wore dresses and skirts that I would not consider to be sweet and submissive and I have known ladies who have worn pants that were very sweet and submissive.

    Let God be True and Every Man a Liar

    “It seems odd, that certain men who talk so much of what the Holy Spirit reveals to themselves, should think so little of what he has revealed to others. My chat this afternoon is not for these great originals, but for you who are content to learn of holy men, taught of God, and mighty in the Scriptures. It has been the fashion of late years to speak against the use of commentaries. If there were any fear that the expositions of Matthew Henry, Gill, Scott, and others, would be exalted into Christian Targums, we would join the chorus of objectors, but the existence or approach of such a danger we do not suspect. The temptations of our times lie rather in empty pretensions to novelty of sentiment, than in a slavish following of accepted guides. A respectable acquaintance with the opinions of the giants of the past, might have saved many an erratic thinker from wild interpretations and outrageous inferences. Usually, we have found the despisers of commentaries to be men who have no sort of acquaintance with them; in their case, it is the opposite of familiarity which has bred contempt” (Spurgeon, Two Lectures Addressed to the Students of the Pastor’s College, Metropolitan Tabernacle, http://www.book-academy.co.uk/lectures/index.html).

  9. While there are clearly some differences that change meaning, shew and show are the same exact word, just different spellings, Shew is British spelling and show is American, also needs and needeth are the same thing. The morpheme -eth is archaic and has been replaced in today’s English with the morpheme -s. there is also no difference in meaning betwixt the word between and betwixt. Same for “wit” and “know” they both mean the same thing as well. Same for “nigh” and “near” both mean the same thing. I lament the fact how people do not understand the English language the way they think they do. There are plenty of real changes to point out that exist between the KJV and other versions. But modern equivalent of archaic words are not changes in meaning, nor are spelling changes either..On that note, have you ever seen a 1611 KJV? Son was spelled Sonne. Does the version you use have Son or Sonne? I am a through and through KJV bible believer and defender, but can we please stop making issues out of non issues?

    The Morality Behind Christian Women Wearing Pants

    Not that I am super hardcore against pants, but that is not really a legitimate excuse for women to wear pants, just because you named occupations that require pants or something similiar, does not mean it is ok for women to wear them. if pants truly are immodest on a woman, then women should not be doing things that require them to wear them. To give you an example in the spirit of reductio absurdum, that would be like saying that since a woman can’t be a bikini model without wearing a bikini, then it must be ok for her to wear a bikini. I believe what you are doing is a form of circular reasoning.

    Does 1 Corinthians 13:8-12 teach the sign gifts have ceased?

    From another forum "I think the significant factor here is what tongues is being grouped with in verse 8. For example, "prophesy" is found repeatedly in chapter 14 as a revelatory gift. Tongues is a revelatory gift. Hence, the direct association with these two revelatory gifts with "knowledge" would indicate it also is to be interpreted within the same category. There was virtually no written revelation for church policy, new covenant administration or teaching at the writing of first corinthians. The second obvious contextual factor is that love is being contrasted to these revelatory gifts with regard to longevity (v. 8a). Verse 8 indicates with regard to longevity, tongues ceases prior to the other two revelatory gifts. Verses 9-10 take up the point of longevity with regard to prophecy and knowledge which has the temporal value of being PARTIAL with regard to revelation. Their longevity is terminated by the coming of "that" which is perfect. The proper understanding of "perfect" must be defined by immediate context. For example, these revelatory gifts are "IN PART" while "that" is not "in part" but is "perfect." Second, the immediate metaphor (v. 10) has to do with MATURITY rather than the second coming or a new world. Hence, there is a time for immature things and a time they must be put away which comes with maturity. Third, the second metaphor has to do with a contrast between means of revelation. There is no question that a mirror is an indirect means of revelation whereas "face to face" is a direct means of revelation. This language was used to describe the revelation provided to Moses that differed from that which was given to common prophets. Common prophets were provide revelation through indirect means (dreams, visions, etc.) where God spoke "face to face" with Moses by direct revelation. Also there time terms of "now" versus "then" in context may refer to the apostolic period as the time of indirect revelatory gifts consummated by the completion of a more individual direct revelation - the completed inspired Word of God. During this "in part" period of time the average Christian had to depend upon revelation from God through indirect means, those among them with these gifts, whereas, "WHEN that which is perfect is come" no individual would have to depend on any other individual for revelation from God but would have it directly from God in written form for him/herself (2 Tim. 3:16-17). The words "to know even as I am known" conveys the idea of direct revelation in contrast to indirect means. This has to be interpreted in context with the metaphors of maturity and mirror and is just another way to say the same thing in a different way. Moreover, "now" in the apostolic period where there is no completed or mature direct personal revelation from God in written form, and they are dependent upon others, immature, in part revelatory gifts, yet "now" they have guiding principles (love, faith, hope) but primarily the "better way" of love to guide them in the proper use of these spiritual gifts." This was an interesting take on it.

    If you would allow me to play "devils advocate" for a moment, Doesn't your position assume though that tongues have surpassed their usefulness? Maybe I have perhaps a different mindset on this because of my interest and heart in missions and specifically unreached people groups, but can we really say that the gift of tongues would be completely out of the question and not be useful if one were to go into a tribe somewhere they have had no contact with the Gospel. (Yes many of these still exist today) With all due respect Pastor Markle, doesn't you position presuppose that the usefulness of tongues has passed? Upon what do you base this presupposition? I am not sure if you are familiar with Otto Koning, but here is what he claimed happened when he was in Papua New Guinea, I think it might possibly give you a different perspective on it, and I would really look forward to a response to this message/story. This is what that got me rethinking and evaluating 1 Corinthians 13:8-13. This audio is pretty easy to listen to, I don't you will find it a burden to listen to, I'm not exactly sure what to think about the story he tells, but it does give something to think about. http://ia800601.us.archive.org/25/items/SERMONINDEX_SID28389/SID28389.mp3 the last 2 minutes are pretty interesting.
