Don't good pastors "reprove and rebuke" their people quite often? Didn't Paul do the same to other men of God? Don't those who dish it out need it once in a while too? Doesn't the Bible say something about those who "despise reproof"? And doesn't judgment "begin at the house of God"?

In Topic: Matthew 24

He was talking to his disciples privately. The message is inherently for the Jews, but it is a message for all to hear.

 

All of the signs that Jesus Christ said to watch for didn't happen during the disciples' lives. In fact, some of the disciples died shortly thereafter...Judas Iscariot and James (John's brother). Yes, Judas Iscariot was there during Matthew 24. If the message ONLY applied to the disciples, yet Judas and James died, does that mean Matthew 24 happened BEFORE Judas killed himself? Did Matthew 24 happen BEFORE James was killed by Herod? Or does Jesus' prophecy get "a pass" as far as they are concerned?

 

The Lord also said that "they" would be delivered up to be afflicted AND killed...and then he goes into a whole other set of signs for "them" to watch for. How could "they" watch for these other signs if they were dead?

 

He was talking to his disciples privately. The message is inherently for the Jews, but it is a message for all to hear.

 

Otherwise, when Christ told Nicodemus, "Ye must be born again." (and all that pertains to that), only Nicodemus could be born again since that's whoi Christ was talking to.  :scratchchin:

He was speaking physically to the disciples privately, but I believe it was meant for all disciples (believers) then, and those of the church age. And though he was speaking to Nicodemus alone, it was of course addressed directly to everyone because "ye" is a plural pronoun in the KJB.

Question; was the ''Apocrypha'' included in the original 1611 tramslation?

In Topic: Sheep, Shepherd, Or Wolf?

Oh yes, I forgot to mention; Many wolves use a King James Bible exclusively too. This gives them no merit. Actually it's more deceptive for us and dangerous for them because they are adding to and taking away from God's Word, False witnesses against God is what they are. God hates it and sheep flee from it. Bennie Hinn also uses a King James too as do many of the Pentecostals, in my community, who teach a works salvation out of it. One can "defend" the King James all they want to while not even knowing the God of the King James. His name is Jesus Christ and He is the only Way, the Truth and the Life,

In Topic: Why King James Only?

I have been following this whole thread from beginning to end. I have refrained from posting numerous times simply because my thoughts and convictions stray from Jordan’s original question.

 

But now, after much prayer and thought, I feel I must post the burden that The Lord has laid on my heart.

 

This thread has drifted from the original topic to posts about who follows who; why others are wrong; (Riplinger, Ruckman) and others. And I just keep coming back to the “why” of it all. Let me lay it out plainly since what I have said so far is obscure.

 

I guess this will come in the form of questions. Why do so many feel the need to read after men or women that they don’t know personally, or who have ministries outside of their own church?

 

Are your churches so weak that you are not being fed proper spiritual food? The local church is, or should be, the place where we are fed, where we grow in Grace and love toward our God and our brethren. There is no substitute for the local church.

 

Paul says this about the local church: 1Tim. 3:15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. If we believe God’s inspired Word why do some feel the need to seek it elsewhere? If our churches are what they should be, why waste our time and resources elsewhere?

 

2Thes. 2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

 

Now I know that someone will say that they are just defending the KJV. But this issue goes far beyond this concept. There are false teachers and preachers world wide, does that mean we have to address each one? I think not! 2Tim. 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

 9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was. Simply put; God is able!

 

I am not saying that these things should not be addressed; they certainly should be as they pertain to our own churches. But why go outside to look for windmills to tilt at? Do we who comprise a local Church of the Living God not have enough to do to keep ourselves pure; preach the Gospel; teach our own people; visit the sick; study; pray?

 

Brothers and sisters, I will end by encouraging each one to fully support your local church by your attendance, prayers and care one for another. Rebuke false teaching in your midst, but don’t get all caught up in the errors of others. It is not profitable. The local church needs you and all of your heart, mind and soul.

 

God bless you as you serve Him.

 I think it is necessary that we know what the false doctrines are and who the false teachers are. Paul warned of them and even named names. The 'grievous wolves' can and will, the first chance they get.
