|21||Are we to bless Israel?||NT general||justme||243628|
|The Jews of today living in Israel, are they seem by God as His special people? Are we today to bless them as the promise in the OT that if we bless them God will bless us? I hear this a good much of the time on some Christian radio prograns.
I am concerned as if anyone, including the Jews reject Jesus as their LORD they too will go to hell if they reject Christ.
|22||The right Bible for you?||Bible general||justme||243571|
|In a recent question I began to question just what do Christians really know about the version of the Bible they are reading? For example the newest NIV (after 1985 version) is a mixture of the Todays NIV and the NIV making it a gender neutral, version which is a very liberal version of the Bible. The ESV is really a tweaking of RSV Bible. Bothe of these Bible fit well into the more liberal Denominations, and pastors.
All to often I have encountered believers who are unaware of what the words "liberal", "gender natural", "Formal Equivalence", "Dynamic or Functional Equivalence", and the newest description "Optimal Equivalence" and finally what a "Paraphrased" The Message is one such paraphrased Bible.
All to often people have no idea what kind of Bible they want. I have been friends with a Christian Book store owner. He has said many came into his store and really having no idea what translation of the Bible they wanted, if they wanted a Study Bible, or were surprised at the cost of Bibles. By far the most popular Bible was the NIV, even when he tried to show how much better the NASB, and some other translations were. Sadly the Bible that gets the most advertisement in Christian magazines is the NIV. ( as a side note I have seen the NASB more recently). I wondered and asked him what profit he made form his bookstore annually and he said he made less than 2 percent profit. the reason is people buy from Amazon, which sells more pornography than all other stores combined. He told me that such places buy huge amounts of Bible they can sell them cheaper than he bought them for. Will the Local Christian Book store be able to survive in the next ten years? By the way my friend lost almost seventy-five thousand dollars in ten years and went out of business last year.
What as Christians should we do? Buy from a national branded book store like Life Way, Family Book stores, Lemstone, or other local book store that has Bibles. Unless Christians begin to support especially local Christian Bookstores they may well go the way of so many stores that once were but no more.
The Bible I highly and completely recommend with no hesitation is the NASb and close to that is the Holman Christian Standard Bible. Why? they are Developed and translated by all Christian people who saw the Bible as God's inspired Word, Inerrant in the original manuscripts. Because they started with the right foundation the Bible translation the finished with is solidly dependable and trustworthy.
my last word is be careful when selecting your next Bible.
|23||Dr. S. Franklin Logsdon||Bible general||m smith||243551|
|Will you please deal publicly with the issue of Dr. S. Franklin Logsdon, who says he is one of the main translators of the NASB and also says it is a really really bad bible.
If you have an official statement, please have the courage of your convictions and publish it on your website.
|25||The SBF what does it need to do?||Bible general||justme||243448|
|I am going to be bold here. The SBF has very few who post any more. We have prayed about this for sometime. I would like to open this up to suggestions as to what do you think the SBF needs to do to be alive and active once again. Be honest and even pray before you post. Lockman has dome a lot to keep the SBF up all these years. Now its time for us who are earnest about keeping the SBF relevant and a place we can be open with our questions and concerns about the Bible and our growth as Christians.
Now its your turn what do we need to hear?

|I know what Calvinism is, but can you please tell me what Hyper-Calvinism is, and what the big difference is? I have heard that some SB seminaries are teaching mainly Calvinism.

|35||Free will, or ?||Rom 9:16||justme||243111|
|Calvinists have used Romans 9 as one of several proof texts. Some who are not as dogmatic use Romans 10 as a reason to say that this chapter is where free will enters into the debate.
I am my self wondering just how deeply this really matters. I have tried to side step the debate on being called, which to me means after a person makes the choice to become a loyal follower of Christ Jesus. It seems to me the strong Calvinist is too strong. Can someone help me understand why free will is not free will as it seems to me Calvinists are saying?

|40||WAR ROOM (prayer room)?||Bible general||justme||243058|
|The movie WAR ROOM is an excellent tool for encouraging personal prayer. I personally have taken steps to reach out to family and friends to make a prayer room. I wonder where do you go to be in a special place to regularly pray? If so would you mind sharing it. I do not consider sharing a point of braging, but so we each might think of better ways to pray.
Have you found a special book besides the Bible that encourages prayer?
