    You have to have a thick skin in this site, brother.

    But it seems you are a mature Christian, you will not get into ugly discussion.

    Hebrew, on the other hand, makes my head hurt, because it's a tribal gutter language (apologies to those offended). And the mindset which one must enter into to make the language unveil it's oriental intent just battles with the logic of my computer science degree. (I'd make a horrible Hebrew.) So I tend to gravitate to the Septuagint.

    Having been raised in the Evangelical church since birth (IFCA mostly), by the age of 14 it was rather obvious that their KVJ only leanings taught that the "originals were lost to time". So when I saw Christianity Today offer these "lost originals" for free (in paperback) with a subscription I thought. WOW who wouldn't read this?

    I quickly found out.

    Zenn

    PS: It astonishes me that the KJV-only people do not realize that their cherished translation was made by a Catholic Church.... Catholic in doctrine, though "Protestant" only in denial of the Pope's ecclesiastical authority (thank you Henry the VIII).
    Amen to all that. Tempted to get that book it would sure be useful if or rather when the internet goes down during the tribulation.

    Now I'm no slouch when it comes to the Bible but I have just been introduced to a rather interesting conundrum with Matthew and Luke's Genealogies. (I'm sure I looked at this before years ago but can't remember now). If you're interested in perhaps joining in and finding the solution (if there is one) you'd be most welcome. I jumped in at post #594:

    Have fun!

    Some of us on TOL like to know up front what someone's gospel of salvation is. It tends to say a lot about that person which gets borne out in later conversation. Let me add that there are many here who try to hide what they believe about the Gospel. They do this for many reasons: they know they have an unorthodox one that will marginalize them...they are mere religionists who don't actually know how to be saved...or they're manipulative cultists or atheistic trolls who are here to deceive and spread dissent. We see it all but almost every single one inevitably of them turns out to be an enemy of the Cross. That's why I asked.

    So while I can't tell for sure what puzzles you, if you should happen to be offended by being asked how one is saved, well, it would say more about you than about the ones asking the question.

    Everyone who has not believed the Gospel of grace is not saved, no matter what else they believe or do.
    By that measure, how many professing Christians are on their way to the Lake of Fire?

    That may be too true, but I do caution, my skeleton is made of metal. (No, truly... in real life... all of it.)
