  1. Best not try to interfere with their eating.
  2. It is a title, but not a link. Can you give me the link so I can read the article? Thanks.
  3. So, don't speak for him. Let him answer. Thanks.
  4. Jerry, should a mother be allowed to teach her child?
  5. We went to a consensus rule. Like the Quakers, if everyone does not agree, it does not pass. Of course, a person can abstain. We see that as saying, I do not totally agree. But if a consensus is reached I can live with it.
  6. Very true. But, does God use people in the preservation of his word such that people can understand his word regardless of the era in which the live?
  7. I don't question God's ability. I am simply asking how does He do it?
  8. Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Matthew 7Z:1-4
  9. Good for you. Researching is important. Good for you. Researching is important.
  10. The King James Bible is certainly the most poetic translation. This makes it easier to memorize. It is a beautiful read. Yes, Shakespeare died in 1616, five years after the King James translation was published. Yes, the reports of reading level currently says 12th grade. I found the following online: King James Version (KJV): 12th grade Revised Standard Version (RSV): 12th grade New American Standard Bible (NASB): 11th grade New Revised Standard Version (RNSV): 11th grade English Standard Version (ESV): 10th grade New International Version (NIV): 8th grade Holman Christian Standard Version (HCSV): 8th grade New King James Version (NKJV): 7th grade New Living Translation (NLT): 6th grade God’s Word (GW): 5th grade The Message (MSG): 5th grade New Century Version (NCV): 3rd grade Do you ever use a parallel Bible where passages from two or three translation are printed side-by-side? Have you used the Amplified Bible?
  11. You give a good argument as to why modern translations should be used. Thanks for supporting my belief. I do not understand Job 15:26-27 as stated in King James. But, if I check a modern translation I can gain an understanding of the passage. I would quote one here, but it seems I am not allowed to quote anything except King James. No comparisons, I guess.
  12. Are you sure? Do you know the meaning of: Haply Minish Sottish Withal Abjects Barked Besom There are many words in the KJ that are not understood by the average person today. Do you really understand Job 15:26-27? 26 He runneth upon him, even on his neck, upon the thick bosses of his bucklers: 27 Because he covereth his face with his fatness, and maketh collops of fat on his flanks.
  13. Books of the same era, yes. But books from different eras, there are differences as people in the later era could not without great difficulty understand what in written in the oldest text. Chaucer's Canterbury tales is an example. Shakespeare's writing is easier to understand as it is in Early Modern English. Yes, some of his sentences and words are hard for many moderns to understand. For instance Shakespeare has Macbeth say, "Lay on McDuff." Most people today misunderstand this phrase. It is not an invitation to attack, but "after you," or I'll follow you. Time change, words change, meaning changes, and some words disappear.
