    KJVONLYism and Gnosticism - Are there parallels?

    Do you understand that God is in the world today? If your answer is yes, then I will ask where do you think he is? Your answer will be critical to your understanding of God. Where on earth does God live and what is he doing and how is he doing it? Your correct approach to the words of the...

    KJVONLYism and Gnosticism - Are there parallels?

    You are claiming that inspiration is a worthless commodity, which of course it is if one believes your weird reasoning. Your whole premise is built upon your misguided reasoning that God cannot and will not and has not preserved his words in translation when he has demonstrated in several places...

    KJVONLYism and Gnosticism - Are there parallels?

    One does not need a KJV to get saved or to tell someone else how to be saved. He certainly does not need a Hebrew and Greek bible as is testified by every single English speaker that ever gets saved. None have ever been saved by a witness who was speaking those languages. All the witness needs...

    KJVONLYism and Gnosticism - Are there parallels?

    I have never in my lifetime ever quoted any of the KJV translators. I have quoted the KJV but it claims in it's pages at least 2000 times to be the word of the Lord or the word of God or it says "and God said" this or that, so I am quoting God. Who else would know what God said that one could be...

    KJVONLYism and Gnosticism - Are there parallels?

    I am not understanding the application in our present context. Explain what you think your verse means. If it is what I think you mean, then the original Hebrew and Greek is in the same classification as the KJV because of the simple fact that they too are on earth and not in heaven. Is this...

    KJVONLYism and Gnosticism - Are there parallels?

    I have asked you at least 100 times over the years what the bible does teach about the preservation of his words and you have never, as far as I can tell, ever presented a case for his true teaching on the subject. The best you have ever done is quote others (some of whom are rank heretics) who...

    Rev. 16:5

    Defending the trinity and 5 dollars will get you a cup of coffee at Starbucks, but it will not get one eternal life. I would not be surprised if there have not been some totally depraved men who have defended the trinity within their religious structures. They probably would not attempt to...

    Rev. 16:5

    I am just telling you something about Egypt that is taught in the KJV. Here is what God said: Jer 42:19 The LORD hath said concerning you, O ye remnant of Judah; Go ye not into Egypt: know certainly that I have admonished you this day.

    I know something about Re 16:5

    Rev. 16:5

    Egypt is always a metaphor for the world and one must always go "down" into Egypt. At least that is true in the KJV. I do not know, but if I did claim to know it would not be because God told me. I would have to believe men, some of whom might be totally depraved.

    Rev. 16:5

    Some things do not need to be proven to me from the minds and sources of men, who are admittedly totally depraved. Some people teaches total depravity as you know, unless they are speaking in the context of the preservation of the scriptures, then the same people will not even admit there is a...

    KJVONLYism and Gnosticism - Are there parallels?

    The NT quotes from the OT and the translation from the Hebrew to the Greek were not always word for word, but they were inspired of God in both testaments. Who would argue with that. This is not sane logic and reasoning to say that God does not have your permission to translate his words into...

    Arminian confusion

    God is the one who justifies. That means he is the one who provides the salvation and sets the conditions for receiving it. Since all men are condemned by their sins, God has provided one means through which he offers salvation from the penalty of sins. This one sacrifice is the only way to God...

    Arminian confusion

    Thanks for the thoughts, Theo1689, I said the following John said that Jesus came to his own and his own received him not. This is Jn 1:11. I am not a betting man, but if I were, I would bet the ranch that you can identify who his own are in this text that did not receive him after he came to...

    Arminian confusion

    Winning these Calvinists to the truth will have eternal consequences, winning an argument, not so much. This is the reason I have longer comments many times. I am always hoping that the scriptures themselves, considered in context, will convince them and when they believe it will be because God...
