    Which version of the King James? They've changed it over the years to reflect more modern English. I don't mean the 'New' KJV, rather, the original KJ version has some changes from the current 'KJV" text.

    I think they have an 'original' photostat of the 1600's version you can buy.

    There's a point of contention I use the 'original' KJV to prove something about Dan 9, they had a semi-colon ; which has been replaced to blur the seperation between the 7 and the 62 (not relevant here, but the change made a difference to more than just 'modernizing' the book).

    Excuse me!

    Everyone knows you can't lick to the center of a tootsie pop because you always bite it before you get to the center.

    Of course.

    textman replies: Hi sarah. The only practical solution to your
    problem is for you to abandon your fear (it is entirely ground-
    less), and to then learn to love the incredible richness,
    diversity, depth, and (above all) complexity of the Word of
    God. After all, if the Faith is both rational and irrational
    at the same time, both simple and confusing at the same time,
    how can the bible (and the rest of creation too) be otherwise?
    .
    And do not be so hard on the translators and bible-makers;
    for they are trying with all their meager might to get it
    right. This despite being severely handicapped by two major
    impediments: (1) they have a great deal to learn about the
    early texts and their collective history; ie. they are very
    extremely ignorant SOB's! And (2) they are unable to get over
    the absurdly ridiculous notion that the canonical format (which
    almost ALL translations adhere to) is itself somehow divine and
    inspired and not to be trifled with under any circumstances!!!
    .
    Therefore readers of the bible (like you and me) are made into
    the slaves of corrupt and ignorant Christian Scribes&Pharisees,
    and thus willfully deprived of any opportunity to read and
    experience the Word as the earliest Greek-speaking believers
    did (ie. with their hearts as well as with their heads).
    .
    - the almost ancient one - textman ;>

    Geneva Bible?

    The greatest distinction of the Geneva Bible, is the extensive collection of marginal notes that it
    contains. Prominent Reformation leaders such as John Calvin, John Knox, Miles Coverdale, William Whittingham, Theodore Beza, and Anthony Gilby wrote the majority of these notes in order to explain and interpret the scriptures. The notes comprise nearly 300,000 words, or nearly one-third the length of the Bible itself.

    I think we could get along without the explaination of the scriptures by these men.

    1 John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

    Using the Merriam-Webster dictionary as my standard, I was using the term "standard" to mean "rule, principle, or measure" rather than "custom, or general consent".

    Textman, learn to use VbCode man. You sound really wierd typing that way.

    Jaltus, it called colloquialism.

    OK, the first round is over. s9 posted very nicely but didn't have anything behind the swing. It was a very nice speech but devoid of and reasonable assertion. To equate other translations with "New Ageism" shows an incredible lack of theological sophistication. Not only that but it increases s9's job 2 fold because now he has to show what new agism is, show why it is bad, and show how other translations jive with a new age philosophy. He is now 3 degrees away from the original argument.

    Jaltus came out heavy stating his tripartite foundation. Good questions to ask and answer and a strong bibliography that borrows from differing schools of thought.

    Round one to Jaltus.

    Eph 4:11-12 " It was he who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare Godís people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ."

    Ginger, why did Jesus give apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers?

    Were they superflous?

    Have we "all reached unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ" and therefore don't need them anymore?

    Lightbulb he will guide you into all truth:

    John 16:13
    Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
    Job 26
    2 How hast thou helped him that is without power? how savest thou the arm that hath no strength?
    3 How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom? and how hast thou plentifully declared the thing as it is?
    4 To whom hast thou uttered words? and whose spirit came from thee?
    5 Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.

    I do believe we still need the 5 fold ministry. I never said otherwise.

    The problem I have is when the words of men are added to the scripture and their words made into doctrine. Their words are not the inspired words of God. This is why there is division, and will only distance us from the unity of the faith. The only way we will ever attain to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ is if we renew our selves in His Words.

    Eph 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
    27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

    NIV, KJV, etc. etc.

    I guess I am just behind the times. I thought that people who go door to door although maybe confused, arent we supposed to help them, not confuse them. Be glad that there are those who will go door to door. We should try to win them not totally lose them.
