  1. Yes. That is exactly why I responded to the OP only. I probably shouldn't have replied to the question of what I would do as far as translating to a foreign language...I have no knowledge overall on the process. Please forgive me for responding inaccurately. I'm just a lil ole lady, striving to love the Lord with all of my heart, soul, mind, and strength.
  2. I was responding to the OP, but it still stands for me that though I am not a linguist, I would still use a KJV (not "updated") to translate to the foreign language.
  3. My response to the OP: without question or doubt, no...to any "update". "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" (Heb. 4:12). "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it" (Is. 55:11). A thoughtful quote is: "Teachers may put good things into our head
  4. Dear man, when the Lord Jesus Christ gives opportunity to share Him, there's nothing that can "compare" to the work of the blessed Spirit! There are many, many ways to shine Him on aside from face to face!
  5. Aw...but if it were my appointed time, to have my body 6 feet under is nothing compared to being present with my Saviour! In the meantime, I shall do all I can to redeem the time desiring to glorify Him and to share the glory and grace of His gift of salvation with others.
  6. For maybe two or three days we had clear blue skies over the valley minus a "ribbon" of smoke coming from the south. It was wonderful to see sky again and be able to breathe fresh air. Then...as I left home to head to the place where I do volunteer work the sky was clear overhead--but a short while later that ribbon of smoke was once again beginning to blow in and saturate the valley with a thick, almost choking cloud. Visibility was less than a mile. I can't imagine what Jim_Alaska is going through. We surely ought to pray for him. One of the fires is due west of his location, though it
  7. Sigh! Please consider the title of this thread, and ALL of my posts! Godly counsel for the heart is what I've been seeking; WISE counsel! Thank you to SureWord for your last post...I appreciate that you shared your own personal experience. It is time now for this thread to close. In a previous post I expressed that this matter has since been dealt with. One last request that I have is Proverbs 18:13 - "He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him".
  8. Good morning to the last two posters! Indeed, it is a glorious morning in my neck of the woods! If you would please take your discussion concerning versions to another thread with that subject, it would be greatly appreciated. As I stated in the OP and then another time, this thread was started with the sincere desire asking for wise counsel about heart matters. Again I will say that I am fully persuaded about the versions issues...it' s not knowledge that I'm seeking, but rather wisdom (James 1:5) and counsel ("...multitude of counsellors...). Please see my last post. May you both have
  9. I would rather know the Word, than just to know about it. I would rather know the Lord Jesus Christ, than just to know about Him. I would rather seek knowledge followed by understanding, spiritual discernment, and wisdom...than just to count on Biblical intellect. I would rather not give precedence to time spent in the Word, but rather focus on a walk of faithfulness with a spirit of meekness in obedience to it. I would rather shew myself approved unto God, than to put on an air and a show for mankind. I would rather come to the light and have error exposed and reproved by His loving chas
  10. I have a few "tears" in my heart, yet a joyous smile on my face. First, I received some very godly counsel from my sister in Missouri concerning this matter. She goes to a little baptist church there that uses the KJV. Her suggestions were very simple, but also quite wise. Considering the things shared in this thread along with her thoughts truly gave me a peace. I have continued to pray about it all, but also truly cast the burden of it to the Lord, and have been waiting upon Him. (I just wanted to clarify that in the previous post that I made when speaking of James 1:4, I said a co
  11. Thank you for sharing your knowledge; I appreciate it. I have a lot to learn! Bunches! I am, though, already fully persuaded concerning the version issues. I started this thread, however, seeking some godly and wise counsel concerning a right attitude and that which is pleasing and glorifying to the Lord - concerning heart matters. Thank you again to those who have made wise suggestions!
  12. Thank you, NN, it was kind of you to apologize and to be considerate - even though I was not at all offended. I certainly understand the passion behind standing on God's Word. I am always aware of John 1:1! Truly, if we were physically face to face with the Saviour would we have the audacity to basically "correct" His words to make them easier to understand? Perhaps that's not the best of illustrations because of the translation to English, but to me concerning the KJV, it is. Aren't people just trying to "bring God down to their level of understanding" rather than to trust and to be cont
  13. Alan, Thank you so very much for the suggestion of the book! It sounds like a good one. I would have to look, but we may even have that book. We have several books about the differences in versions. It's amazing the subtleties and changes that are made. It's all so very "crafty" and sly and deceitful. In my heart, I want to focus so much on what my KJV says, that it's so much easier to recognize what it does not say. That is how over the months I was able to at least get "red flags" especially on the verses I had memorized. That Sunday that it finally grabbed my attention, I recog
  14. Thank you for your comment. I'm so very delighted in my KJV, and indeed the blessed Spirit is the most Holy and perfect teacher of it. Truly, it leaves me "wanting nothing".
  15. Thank you Alan, Ukulelemike, and gracelife for your responses. We are incorporating your thoughts into our prayers as we continue to seek the Lord's guidance. I gave a somewhat shortened version of the situation...I would venture to say that probably the majority of the congregation uses a different version other than the KJV. A few years ago, a fellow was chosen to teach Sunday School who uses another version. We have yet to see an updated copy of the church's statement of faith, and we usually don't attend the business meetings, so we don't know if it was decided that the NKJV was deemed
