Claude Mariottini Weighs in on Some Aspects of the King James Version

December 2nd, 2009 · No Comments · Bible, Bible Translations, Christianity, New Testament, Old Testament, Religion

Dr. Mariottini has posted some useful thoughts regarding the KJV in response to an article in the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. I love the way he has a balanced approach of not bashing the KJV but objectively and systematically pointing out some of its shortcomings while still respecting its value and importance in Christian history.

Church Plans Bible Burning

October 14th, 2009 · No Comments · Bible, Bible Translations, Christianity, Church, Gospel of Matthew, New Testament, Old Testament, Religion

Amazing Grace Baptist Church in Canton, NC plans a book burning for Halloween [HT: Brian Nicklaus]. They are burning books they believe are Satanic.

The Case of the Missing Verse – John 5:4

March 20th, 2008 · 152 Comments · Bible, Bible Translations, Christianity, New Testament, Religion, Thoughts

I always thought the fact that the NIV has 49 blank verses just made it easier to win a memory verse competition by saying, “Matthew 23:14” then pausing, “Mark 7:16” then pausing, until you have quoted 49 memory verses without having to say a word.

February 12th, 2008 · No Comments · Humor, Old Testament, Preaching, Religion
