Word endings: “-est” = 2nd person verb (speaker talking to a person) i.e. “…lovEST thou me?”

Word endings: “-eth” = 3rd per verb (speaker talking about person) i.e. “ doETH the will of the Father”

Pronouns: thee, thou, thine, thy = singular,   “t” has 1 vertical line so is singular

Pronouns: you, ye, your, yours = plural,   “y” (at top) has 2 vertical lines so is plural

Jesus (Luk 22.31-32) speaks to group (you), then to Peter (thee, thou, thy).

“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other;

or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

Having Preferences and having supportive References (in context) are two distinctly different things. Don’t twist the Bible to your preferences but allow the Bible to un-twist you so you align with Its eternal Truth.

There once was a big guy in Gath

Who was filled with Philistine wrath

The Jews had a son of their own

An expert in slingshot and stone

Goliath soon died on the path. 1Sa 17.49

“Science” is in the Bible twice:

a wicked nation, Babylon, had a distinct interest in it (Dan 1.4) & Paul, the most highly educated man in the NT (Jesus was not educated, per se) warned his adopted son about “…profane & vain babblings and oppositions of science falsely so called” (1Ti 6.20). Both references are negative. Secular & “christian” schools have put a degree of emphasis on it.

Thank God for the boldness of Dr Henry Morris’s stand (was privileged hear him in person) & Ken Ham for a literal 6-day creation.
