  1. Saved in 3 tenses?

    Okay, I just installed the TR in my Bible program... 1 Corinthians 15:2, the word for saved is σωζεσθε 1 Corinthians 1:18, the word for saved is σωζομενοις First, thanks to Bro. Markle for pointing out the situation with Strong's. I wasn't aware of that. Second, I've learned a lesson from this, and though I originally tried to tread carefully, I realize that I need to tread even more carefully from this point forward. I will bow out of this conversation from here on out. Thank you Bro. Markle for addressing Roselove's concerns.
  2. A simple request

    I think that would cause a small turmoil here in the US for now...however, I think people (here in America) are being prepped to accept such regulations too. I see less and less people who are willing (or able) to do things themselves, and that will make it easier for the government to lay down restrictions and laws here such as you describe. Americans are becoming lazy, and they (the general population) will seemingly accept almost anything to make their lives easier...even if it infringes on their freedom...as long as it doesn't interfere with their smart phone usage. I'll try and post my "before" and "after" pictures later...
  3. Saved in 3 tenses?

    My apparent "combativeness" wasn't necessarily against the man himself, the article itself, or the ideas of the article; rather, it was against the Bible that he uses, and therefore; its underlying Greek text. As far as the general message underlying the article...I had no problem with that. I agree with being saved in "three tenses". I apologize for letting my rancor show in regards to a Bible version other than the King James.

  5. Saved in 3 tenses?

    Thanks Bro. Markle...I was kind of hoping you might chime in on this. :) I was suspicious that it may have been the case as you described; however, since I haven't studied Greek, I wasn't about to try to "explain" something that I knew nothing about. LOL! When I "type" a Greek word, I don't actually type it out. I just highlight it with my mouse cursor in my Bible program, then I copy and paste it here (or in my examples above...copy and paste the word from those websites). I hope you're doing well friend.
  6. Saved in 3 tenses?

    Well, all that I can go by is what I use. I'm no Greek scholar. Here's the word in my Bible program...as you can see, it's the same "number", but look at the Greek word in comparison to what you've posted... G4982 σώζω sozo (sō'-zō) v. to save, i.e. deliver or protect. {literally or figuratively} [from a primary sos (contraction for obsolete saos, “safe”)] KJV: heal, preserve, save (self), do well, be (make) whole The author's Greek word from 1 Corinthians 15:2 - σωζεσθε The author's Greek word from 1 Corinthians 1:18 - σωζομενοις The Greek word from the Textus Receptus link that you provided of 1 Corinthians 1:18 - σωζομενοις (#4982) The screenshot's Greek word from 1 Corinthians 1:18 - σωζομενοις (#4982) The Greek word in my program from both 1 Corinthians 15:2 and 1 Corinthians 1:18 - σώζω (#4982) All that I can say is... The author has two different Greek words from the same single Greek word and "number"; which is 4982. The author, the screenshot, and the link provided show different Greek words than what mine shows. As I said, I'm no Greek scholar, and I just reference Greek occasionally. I'm wondering why the author has two different Greek words for the same Greek word...well, I think I know why, but I'll stop there. I can't explain it to you any more than what I've shown Roselove.

    Wow! Really? Things haven't reached that point here in the US yet...
  8. Saved in 3 tenses?

    Well, I didn't want to say anything at first, but the person (and article) to whom you are referring to is using a different Bible and Greek text than the King James Version and the Greek text it was translated from. I quickly looked up the word in Greek, and the word is a different Greek word than what that gentleman quoted. He even admits that other translations translate the word differently. You have to be very careful of whom you read Roselove.
  9. Saved in 3 tenses?

    What are you confused about? Is it the "three tenses"? Examples: [Past Tense] (Titus 3:5) Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; [Present Tense] (1 Corinthians 1:18) For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. [Future Tense] (1 Corinthians 3:15) If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. Past, present, and future. Our salvation encompasses all three. I was saved many years ago in the "past", I'm "presently" saved today, and I'll be saved in the "future". It's not three different salvations; it's three aspects of one salvation.

    Well, all I can say in light of that is... Whoever the contractors were (that built our house), they were seeking eternal job security. LOLOLOL...LOL!

    You're on the wrong side of the road...
  12. A simple request

    Yep...have to work tomorrow. Lowe's opens at 6:00 or 6:30 am. I'll get there early, buy it, and hopefully get it installed before I have to go in tomorrow afternoon (other things to do too). My only worry is that the plumber (who piped the original water heater) hard-piped it. From the specifications that I've read online, that shouldn't be a problem other than having to cut the pipes and installing a coupling. We'll see how it goes. Thanks to all who may have prayed. Side note: if you're a plumbing contractor, please don't hard-pipe to a water heater.
  13. New Forum Area?

    Just voted. Sorry OFP; I meant to vote before now, but with all that's going on...it slipped my feeble mind. I would like to read (my vote). Since I've only had one music lesson in my life (when I was 14 years old), and I'm self-taught, and since I can't really read music because I'm self-teachifying myself in that area too, and since my self-teachification of reading music only applies to a Recorder...I wouldn't be much of a question answerer. However, a forum for such does indeed stir my interest.
  14. A simple request

    Okay, the decision has been made. Due to financial restraints, I'm going to Lowe's tomorrow to buy a water heater and install it...if I'm not called in to work... I will hopefully know today whether I'll have to work tomorrow and what the hours will be if I do have to work.
  15. A simple request

    Thank you OFP. I need to talk with my plumber some more. Our current water heater uses natural gas. The tankless that he spoke of uses propane, so part of the deal is to also install a small propane tank (200-250 gallons). He said it would use about 100 gallons a year. Does that sound about right? I also need to check on the price of propane...
