    Steve,
    Are there any other translations that are inspired? Or is the KJV the only inspired Word of God
  2. Pastorj added a post in a topic: Secondary Inspiration   

    I am 100% confident in the KJV , but I reject double inspiration as a heretical teaching. My confidence is based on the Word of God clearly teaching the doctrine of preservation. The KJV is one of a number of translations that I could say are God's Inspired Word. It is the only English translation, but there are a number of other language translations that are equally God's Inspired word because they were preserved in their language.

    Good point John. I will be in Heaven, not really caring at that point who the Anti-Christ is.

    Another question to those who hold to the Double inspiration
     
    If I wanted to get a translation of the Bible in some language that doesn't currently have one. Would I translate it from the Greek/Hebrew or would I translate it from the KJV ?

    In short, I would hold that the Anti-Christ is a Roman Jew. Roman Citizenship, Jewish Nationality.
     
    My personal belief is that he will be a pope. Not enough time to give the Scriptural basis, but anyway, that is my opinion.

    The teaching of Double-Inspiration is primarily taught by Riplinger and Ruckman.This is the reason, I bring up the name of Ruckman in this argument.
     
    I have a couple questions to those who hold to this position.
    1. Can someone get saved from another translation?
    2. Do people in other countries need to learn English to read the Bible?
     
    You avoided these in my last post, so I figured I would ask them directly.

    My position on Ruckmanism has been clearly stated over the years. You will not find a sound Biblical argument to prove double inspiration because there isn't one. God Inspired His Word and has faithfully Preserved his Word as promised, from generation to generation. We can hold up our KJV and say we are holding the inspired Word of God just as someone in France can hold up a French translation and call it the Inspired Word of God.
     
    One of the major pr OB lems with double inspiration, besides being unscriptural, is that you are forced into a position that since the KJV is the only Inspired Word of God, you cannot be saved from any other translation, English or Foreign, because they are not Inspired. Or you must say that everyone who is involved in translating the Word of God to another language is Inspired.
     
    God took care of this by promising to Preserve His Word from generation to generation. He never promised to inspire every translator in History.

    I would highly recommend a book called "Things to Come" by J. Dwight Pentecost.
     
    There is also a thread where I debated a Mid-Trib person a few years ago. Don't know if it is still out there or not, but that was an interesting discussion. Lot's of Scripture in that one.

    I buy and sell on craigslist all the time and have had no issues, other than people being no-shows.
  10. Pastorj added a post in a topic: Family Salvation   

    Haven't read the Sword since Shelton Smith clearly stated his position on repentance and salvation. He doesn't believe repentance is necessary for salvation.

    The most effective way is for the individual to see it for themselves. However, as stated by others, it is the Word of God that saves, not the printed word.

    Same here. I got 1 suit a year (at easter) and I wore it every Sunday to the Catholic church. When I got saved, at 10, everyone at the Baptist church wore a suit. (70's)
     
    Fast Forward - 2014: At the church I am attending, the pastor wears a suit, I wear a suit, my son wears a suit and 4 or 5 older men do. The rest are dressed in similar fashion to the man in the picture, just a few less holes.
     
    Though I don't think a suit is required to worship God, it shows how casual our society has become. I took a leadership course a number of years ago (secular course). In the course they said that surveys prove that the better dressed you are, the more productive you are at work. It is why IBM used to require suits. I almost took a job with a big bank in NC. They also require the men to wear suits for the same reason. Sport coats were not allowed. I asked my potential manager how many suits he owned and he responded that he buys 7 suits every year. My friend got the job I was offered and he said that it is the best place to work. Everyone is very professional.
     
    Casual attire has swept through and has watered down work places and our churches.
     
    Just my two cents

    That is so incorrect. I have visited 28 churches in the Statesville, NC area. All of them, the pastor has dressed properly and quite frankly, only a couple could actually preach.
     
    The Bible says that Man looketh on the outward appearance.
     
    Gloryland - Your obsession with pastors and finding faults is alarming. Time to look in the mirror and get your own heart right. It's individuals like you that are driving the good pastors out of the ministry and leaving us with people who don't belong.
