  • Bio I was raised in a broken home, I never really went to churches at all growing up except for maybe 5 or 6 times at random churches when I was younger, I became hopelessly addicted to drugs in my teen years, My life was falling apart, I was miserable and without hope in this world, then I started going to a Baptist church with a friend, I heard the Gospel and I repented of my sins and turned to Jesus Christ to save me, My life has been incredible since the Lord came into my life. I go to Fairhaven Baptist College

  1. Preaching the Gospel in Uganda

    My topic and time was changed. I will update later when I have the details so you folks can pray at that specific time for me.
  2. Preaching the Gospel in Uganda

    In a few weeks here, I will be preaching a message in Uganda as part of an effort to start a church, my topic is "We are sinners by choice", Basically It it is about how we have free will and tat we choose to sin, and that we have a sin nature as well. Please pray for conviction of sin and that my message would create hearts prepared to receive the Gospel when it is preached more fully later on in the week. 2 Th 3:1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:
  3. Great Study Bible

    I think probably much of the aversion to Greek and Hebrew is a knee jerk reaction to those who try to correct the English KJV by referring to one of the critical Greek texts. I don't think Hebrew and Greek definitions should ever be used to undermine anyone's confidence in our accurate King James Bible. Those who do so i believe are proud and arrogant as been said by other posts. but there is a big difference between correcting with the Greek or Hebrew and using it to shed more light on the English translation and understanding
  4. Great Study Bible

    I have a hard time believing that.
  5. Great Study Bible

    so have you ever looked up a word from the bible in an English dictionary?
  6. Great Study Bible

    Also there are many people who use Greek and Hebrew for their own usage without using it to correct the KJV. it is unfair for you to paint all students of Greek and Hebrew with that same brush. In fact I find it misleading. Wretched and Swathdiver can both claim Greek and Hebrew is not profitable to refer to study, but I already gave an example of where looking into the Hebrew can clear up and help with understanding. I have proved my premise with an example, all they have simply done is claimed over and over again that it is not helpful. the proof of the profit of Greek and Hebrew study is right there for all to see. I could give other examples where Greek and Hebrew word studies help with Bible interpretation and study. Just a simple study on Greek words behind word "love" in John 21 yields sheds light on the scriptures.

    So when you don't know the definition of an English word what you do? just hope the Spirit magically tells you what the word means? or do you look it up an a Webster's 1828 dictionary? Wretched please do tell me how you learned what the word "quicken" means? Did the Spirit just lead you? BTW, I don't know why you mentioned modern greek, you and I both know that the N.T. is written in Koine Greek.

    And neither are Chapter and verse divisions. Though I assume you have a Bible that uses those. Anyway the purpose for this thread was just to make people aware of a tool that is available. You certainly don't need to delve into Greek or Hebrew to study the Bible, but it definitely sure is helpful. I sure would be interested in hearing a response from someone who does have some skill/study in the original languages.

    The issue is not that he did enquire enough.. the problem was he was going to God to get help because he was in trouble, he was not going to God because he was repentant. the two different Hebrew words have different meanings. one means basically to seek something from or to demand and the other has more of an idea of worship. I am sorry but I do not believe we have to restrict ourselves only to the English. The English is not better than the Greek and Hebrew. Not to say that there is anything wrong with our English King James Version. BTW, we wouldn't even have a King James Version if people took the same position towards Greek and Hebrew that you do. I sure am glad that the KJV translators took the time to study Greek and Hebrew...

    I would also say that i tend to be weary of study bible's as well, however the reason why I like this particular Bible is because it allows access to Greek and Hebrew definitions, you can use this bible in a grammatical and etymological fashion. I am just simply convinced that this is a great tool. the study notes do have some issues, but I do not recommend this bible for it's study notes, but rather for it's Greek and Hebrew tools like the text coding and the expanded Greek and Hebrew dictionary in the back. Here are some issues I have with the actual study notes. The study notes often attempt to "correct" the KJV text by saying such and such should translates such and such way. I ignore these notes. this is the only issue with the study notes that i am currently aware of. However, the study notes are Dispensational, and I believe from a Pre-Trib point of view. but like i said, I don't put much stock in the notes of any study Bible.

    I use to think more like you in terms of referring only to English when dealing with scriptures.let me give you one illustration of how referring to the original languages can be helpful. 1st Samuel 28:6-7 And when Saul enquired of the Lord, the Lord answered him not, neither by dreams, nor by Urim, nor by prophets. Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and enquire of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor. 1st Chronicles 10:13-14 So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the Lord, even against the word of the Lord, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it; And enquired not of the Lord: therefore he slew him, and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse. These two passages can create quite a a problem if you limit yourself only to English. note here that the Hebrew word translated enquired in 1st samuel 28:6-7, and the Hebrew word translates "enquired" in 1st Chronicles 10:13-14 are two DIFFERENT Hebrew words. in 1st Samuel the word is sha'al which means to inquire; by implication, to request; by extension, to demand. in 1st Chronicles the word used is darash which means: to tread or frequent; usually to follow (for pursuit or search); by implication, to seek or ask; specifically to worship Basically by looking at the Hebrew you can see that in 1st Samuel that Saul was demanding and seeking God for his own purposes, while in 1st Chronicles God wanted Saul to seek him in order to serve and please him. Without going to Hebrew this distinction is not nearly as clear. i am convinced that those who attack Greek and Hebrew study are basically trying to make ignorance virtuous.

    black is probably just more popular. Also pay attention to genuine or bonded, genuine leather costs more.

    John 3:16-20 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

Many words in the text are coded to strongs numbering system.2. in back of this bible there is an Strongs Dictionary of Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek words. 3. The Original Languages dictionary in the back is an expanded dictionary that includes AMG Complete Word Study definitions.4. In the NT some of the greek words have a coding that defines the Greek tense and usage for some of the words, in the back of the bible there is a small explanation of the Greek tenses. 5. You can use this bible and benefit from the Greek and Hebrew without having any training in the original languages.
