Luther Quote

“I would not have preachers in their sermons use Hebrew, Greek…

in church we ought to speak as we use to do at home, the plain mother tongue.”

Table Talk, p.185


You can not be firmly convinced of The King James Version and, at the same time, firmly convinced of a Bible in competition with It. If you had to declare in a Court of Law which Bible you believe to be inspired – the KJV or another – which would you say? Would it be a real struggle?

One cannot adequately describe,

The work of one lone scribe,

In days or months or years.

Only eternity will reveal,

The influence of his pen’s ink-zeal;

Words encasing hopes, facts, fears.

Your own

It’s wonderful Lord how You watch out for Your own

In every clime, country, zone.

And equally nice how You give strength to die

To Your martyrs far away or quite nigh:

Goodness, grace, both supplied without loan.

You probably share ideas “A” & “B” with a friend but may not share more. You may share ideas “C” & “D” with other friends (though they don’t agree with “A”&“B”). This not bad – it can make life interesting. Enjoy conversations on shared concepts (with those who share them) without “forcing” them to agree with your “jots”/“tittles.” We tend to be better friends when “understandings” are most similar.

*The above only intended for areas where the Bible is silent – not for Its fundamental, clear teachings.*

“Take away the Bible & our warfare with oppression & infidelity & intemperance & impurity

& crime is at an end: our weapons are wrested away–our foundation is removed—

we have no authority to speak & no courage to act.”

– Wm. Lloyd Garrison, quoted by Gilchrist Lawson


Pro 29. 2

“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice:

but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.”


What do you BELIEVE?

You’re an adult – You can believe what you want to. As a logical adult (hopefully) you should have foundations for your beliefs. Higher yet, as an adult who claims to believe in Jesus Christ & His authoritative Bible, your beliefs should be anchored within It. Are they?

What do you BELIEVE?

Does your view of the past connect to some/all of the OT? Does your view of the present have roots in the teachings of the NT? Does your view of eschatology have firm fountains in Daniel, Christ, Revelations – – – not what you were “taught” that they say, but the Literal, Grammatical reading of the Text?
