Christ is never wrong.

 

 

 

The Bible, properly understood,

 

 

 

is never wrong.

 

 

Theology can be sooooo wrong

 

 

 

and hinder our making heaven.

Translation Trouble – Joh 16.16
 

AV “A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again

a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.”

 

NIV  In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me _________________________.

 

 

NIV readers, Sadly, are not “allowed”

to see where Jesus went.

The thief looking sideways could see

 

That Face did not “go with” that tree.

 

It took all he could muster,

 

These last words to utter;

 

“When Thy kingdom comes remember me”

[Luk 23]

Translation Trouble – Mark 16.9-20 (all 12 verses)

AV has them all, as It should – see John William

Burgon’s (born in Smyrna, 1813) book, The Last

Twelve Verses of the Gospel of Mark (400 pages),

where he proves this section WAS in the original

manuscripts.   

NIV has a line separating these last 12 verses from

the text.  Under this line it reads: “[The two most

reliable early manuscripts do not have Mark 16:9-20.]”

NIV readers, Do you know that The Jehovah’s

Witness “Bible” ALSO places these verses in an

appendix of sorts.  Similarity with a cult?

ON-this-DATE   

 

4/23 John Newton, on this date 1779, is said to have

expressed the following in a letter:

 

“‘What Thou wilt.  When Thou wilt.  How Thou wilt.’ 

 

I had rather speak these three sentences from my heart

in my mother tongue than be master of all the languages

in Europe.”

In geography

It is very plain to see

A wedge of rock and soil stands between,

The old land they knew,

And the one they’re going to,

Observing this is neither cold or mean.

 

There’s a Red Sea and there’s a river,

They both are to deliver,

The walkers, who walk through their lines,

Each saw a crisis hour,

Each represents its power,

That crossing over forever defines.

 – eab, Oct. ‘99

A sheet of paper has 2 sides? 

 

 

Want to guess again? 

 

 

It has six “sides.” 

 

 

The little “sides” say nothing, but

 

they’re the ones that cut you!

Using a modern version?

Yes, I understand that those using the modern mistranslations WANT you to believe that Vaticanus and Sinaiticus are THE OLDER manuscripts.  Whether they are as old as they are purported can surely be questioned by any thinking person.  Who is making this call – those who want them to be older, or someone more skeptical?  When we are dealing with supposed copies of the WORD of GOD, the believer can be properly skeptical.

 

One named Constantine Simonides (1820–1867), is said to have had “extensive learning, knowledge of manuscripts…According to opinion of paleographers, he was the most versatile forger of the nineteenth century” (Wikipedia).  Simonides claimed to be the real author of the Sinaiticus (in 1839).  “Scholars” do not like to think they can be mistaken but with the history of false materials appearing in catholic circles (“pieces of the cross” for example) wisdom suggests caution about this “find.”  Supposedly Constantin von Tischendorf, a German theologian with evolutionist leanings, “found” it in a waste can in St Catherine’s Monastery in 1859, and according to some, spirited it out of the monastery.
