Excellent points, BMc, but I fear you are casting pearls before swine. Jim has shown repeatedly that he has no interest in the truth. May his arms fall off the day he throws away the best English translation of the Bible ever.
I havenât heard the archangel, THBCC. The dead in Christ havenât come out of their graves. Living saints have not been raptured. AND DONALD TRUMP IS NOT THE TRUMP OF GOD. The trump of God is a trumpet, not a man. Next youâll be telling us that Mike Pence is Gabriel.
By âTrumpians, Jim, I assume you mean people who, unlike yourself and other liberals, actually love America and want to see her blessed and prospering. In that case, Iâm proud to be a Trumpian, a âdeplorableâ who did not and would not vote for Hellery. Cuba is calling you, Jim. Put on your beret and go.
Jim, what difference does it make which version of the Bible you use if you have no intention of obeying it anyway? In the King James Version, Exodus 23:2 says, âThou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment.â Your beloved ESV says, âYou shall not fall in with the many to do evil, nor shall you bear witness in a lawsuit, siding with the many, so as to pervert justice.â Either way, you are a rebellious and disobedient reprobate who not only endorses the wickedness of the God-hating Democratic Party, but urges others to follow their pernicious ways as well. I donât give a rip what John Ankerburg or NPR or Bozo the Clown has to say. What does GOD say? And why do you continually ignore Him? Finished here for now. A blessed Veterans Day to allâincluding Jimâwho served to defend our freedomsâeven the freedom to be idiots.
But James, surely we mustnât introduce FACTS into the argument! Not when we have such strong FEELINGS about the âreadabilityâ of the NIV (non-inspired version) and the âaccuracyâ of the ESV (essentially satanic version). People who refuse to accept the truth ABOUT the Bible can hardly be expected to receive the truth OF the Bible.
According to Deuteronomy 29:1-4, the Israelites had seen Godâs great miracles, but they didnât âget itâ simply because God had not ENABLED them to get it. No doubt the His Popiness has read the Bible, or at least some semblance of it, from cover to cover, but Satan has blinded his mind (Ii Corinthians 4:3-4) so that he is unable to perceive the truth of salvation by grace alone in the Son of God. Unless and until God supernaturally removes this blindness, the poor lost soul will never understand true doctrine. He deserves our contempt, but he needs our prayers. God can as easily save Francis as He saved any of us.
âRomeo, Romeo, where you at?â âHey, whatâs that light in the window? Land sakes, itâs Juliet! Why, dog my cats!â The same âscholarsâ who insist that the KJV needs to be updated would bristle with outrage if one suggested that Shakespeare needed the same treatment, Jim. Not that they are literate enough to read Shakespeareâor the Bible, for that matter. The solution to ignorance is education, not capitulation to ignorance. Instead of railing against the best translation ever given, perhaps you should get saved and get an education.
