Bible Translations And Doctrines Of Men

    Literal Translations vs Paraphrasing   Most English versions of the bible do a pretty good job of trying to give a literal translation of what has been written in the original Greek text.  However, at times, the translators personal opinions have entered into their decision on how to translate a word.  An example of this is how the KJ translators, have translated the word “Passover”, in  Acts 12,…

Spiritual Conditions – Part 1

April 10, 2019

    What’s Your Spiritual Condition ?   I just want to give you some “food for thought” today.  Here’s a lesson on what the bible teaches, about what I call, “spiritual conditions”.  When I say “spiritual conditions”, I am contrasting, being in a spiritual “condition”, with being in spiritual “place”.  I believe that when our bibles use the word “place” in regard to our spiritual destiny, such as it…

    Karma.. I hear a lot of people talking about Karma these days.   They say, what goes around, comes around;  In other words, someday you’re going to get treated the same way you treat other.  People say;  I don’t worry about getting revenge, I just let Karma take it’s course.  But that’s really not what the notion of Karma originally refers to.

A Comprehensive Study Of The Holy Spirit Of God – Part 2

February 2, 2019

    The “Role” and the “Work” of the Holy Spirit   In Part 1 of this study, we saw how the bible portrays the Holy Spirit as the “power” of God.  By the word “power”, I mean the active force that accomplishes the will of God.  For example, it was the Spirit of God (aka the Holy Spirit) who was “moving over the face of the waters” during the…

      Do You Think The Bible Is Hard To Understand?   Do you think that the bible is hard to understand?  I believe that most people think it is.  A man recently commented to me and said; “If God is so omnipotent, then why couldn’t He give us a book that everyone could understand?  That’s a good question.  Why couldn’t God have given us a book that was…
