In Topic: Whats for Supper...

Yesterday, 07:34 PM

Took my wife out to lunch today to celebrate her birthday, which was yesterday.  So this evening just had a fairly plain salad, lettuce, tomato, cucumber and red onion, all from the garden.

In Topic: Speaking In Tongues

Yesterday, 07:21 PM

 Seems more like, in 1Cor 14, people were speaking languages they knew, but were unknown to the hearers, so they were forbidden to speak such unless there was someone they knew could interpret it. Like a foreign missionary speaking in his native tongue should have an interpreter.

 

It seems this is a possible explanation.  I have heard it said that Corinth was a seaport with sailors from all over the world, so that would seem a likely explanation.

 

When in France, I have been told in a meeting that I can pry in English if need be, but I would not be happy with that, as how could anyone say "Amen" if they didn't understand English?   My wife is more or less fluent in French, but is not good at interpreting as she says she cannot think in two languages at the same time.

Like in  

 

Joh 12:19  The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, Perceive ye how ye prevail nothing? behold, the world is gone after him.

To the Pharisees, israel pretty much was the entire world, or all they cared about.

 

 

 

Do we not say "Give my regards to everybody"?  When we don't mean everybody?

 

The French would say "Toute la monde", i.e. 'all the world.'  when we would say everybody.

or:

 

Lu 2:1  And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
This is quoting Agustus; HE said that all the world was to be taxed. To Agustus, all he controlled was THE world
 
Not to mention  
 
Ac 11:28  And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.
 
How do we know there wasn't a dearth in the whole world? Keep in mnd the world is specifically the people, the lost. So where there were people, there was a dearth.

 

 

Some literary gymnastics there.

Yes it does....."A world" does, "This world" does, "worlds" does too. but "the world"....there is only one "the world". "For God so love THE WORLD".
