|NICE IS NOT THE POINT
By CT Columnist Marilyn Chandler McEntyre
From Christianity Today magazine, November 13, 2000
'Some time ago I read the synoptic Gospels with a group of literature students, only a few of whom professed to be "reasonably familiar" with the material in those books. We made our way through the Nativity stories, the Sermon on the Mount, the miracles, and the teachings.
'We struggled through some of Jesus' "hard sayings" and disconcerting acts, such as
withering the fig tree and casting demons into swine. ("They were innocent swine!" someone protested. "They belonged to some innocent pig farmer!") I was glad for the chance to
retrieve some of the shock value of stories so often flattened in an effort to make them palatable.
'As the unit on the Gospels drew to a close, I asked the professing Christians, "How has this reading of these accounts of Jesus' life and ministry changed your understanding of him?" A hand went up. "I don't know exactly how to put this," the young woman mused, "but this isn't the Jesus I grew up with. He doesn't seem very ... nice."'

You sure go through a lot of mental gymnastics and acrobatics to twist the scriptures to fit your notion of "the way things oughta be."
Heard on Christian radio: "Look for people who always seem stuck on one over-emphasized point of theology. This is the person who bangs the proverbial drum for his own little area. Some crazy quirk. And it usually is not some great divine insight. They'd like you to think they're so close to God that they have a great divine insight that no one else has. The fact of the matter is they're seeking a platform for the feeding of their ego. Watch for people with a lack of balance."
TEV) (2) A fool does not care whether he understands a thing or not; all he wants to do is show how smart he is.
(15) Intelligent people are always eager and ready to learn.
(ESV) (2) A fool takes no pleasure in understanding,
but only in expressing his opinion. ...
(15) An intelligent heart acquires knowledge,
and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge.
(NLT) (2) Fools have no interest in understanding; they only want to air their own opinions.

|If you think the Amplified Bible is a "paraphrase," you have been misled. From the Preface of the Amplified Bible, 1965, 1987:
The purpose of the Amplified Bible "is to reveal, together with the single English word equivalent to each key Hebrew and Greek word, any other clarifying meanings that may be concealed by the traditional translation method." Notice the purpose of the Amplified is to reveal, "WITH the single English word equivalent", not INSTEAD OF the single English word equivalent.
"...the creative use of amplification merely helps the reader comprehend what the Hebrew and Greek listener instinctively understood (as a matter of course)." Notice the use of the word amplification. Amplification -- not paraphrase.
This version expresses "the perspective of an individual paraphraser (vs. translator)"? From the Preface to the Amplified New Testament, 1958:
"An Editorial Committee gave dedicated and diligent attention to the manuscript. The edited and proofed *translation* was then submitted to three qualified Greek consultants." Notice it says "translation" -- not "paraphrase."
"Twenty-seven translations and versions of the New Testament in whole or in part were assiduously examined and the greatest lexicographers of all times continually consulted . . . A fourfold aim for this version has been kept in view:
"1. That it should be true to the original Greek . "
(Emphasis added in the above quotations.)
Oh, by the way, welcome to "StudyBibleForum.com brought to you by the *translators* of the New American Standard, *AMPLIFIED*, and La Biblia de las Américas Bibles" (emphasis added).
|6||Crusifiction of Christ||Bible general Archive 1||Radioman||41175|
|angel1: The Note quoted below does not rate a reply. Just ignore it.
"Subject: Crusifiction of Christ
Note: Dear angel1,
"I have never been called a witch before, especially by a self proclaimed witch who admits to making statues of sorcerers who invited evil spirits into her own house. Since I am not a witch nor have I ever studied or practiced any type of witchcraft I am amased at the boldness you display in your accusation towards me. I thank God for you being a recovering witch and I give to Him the painful memories you still have against the evil that obviously seduced you into the lies and darkness of the occult. May you read the Bible and be cleansed and healed by the words of life. If you read this thread you will find that I believe Jesus was crucified on a cross not a stake as you seem to believe. . . "
(Notice: There is no "fiction" in crucifixion.)
|7||What does this verse mean?||1 Tim 2:15||Radioman||40741|
|You write: "If you compare the Amplified Bible translation to the origional (sic) greek, then, yes it is someone's wrong interpretation."
There is more to the work of Bible translation than most of us are aware of. Having a thorough knowledge of the original languages is just the beginning.
"The art and science of Bible translation is one of the most demanding -- and humbling of all ministry professions. Perhaps Martin Luther said it best when he opined that he was glad he became a Bible translator, "...otherwise I might have died someday imagining that I was a learned man." (Apparently there are many who have never done the work of translating the Bible who IMAGINE that they know more than they actually do.)
"The challenge of beginning with the original Bible languages, syntax and cultures and translating them into the receptor language, replete with its own idioms and cultural understandings, is massive. IT CAN NEVER BE A WORK OF PERSONAL PREFERENCES or accommodation to special interests." (Emphasis added. "The facts that inspired an updated Scripture text for today's reader", Zondervan.)
To be qualified to translate the Bible one needs a good knowledge of ancient LANGUAGES, CULTURES, ARCHEOLOGY, and HISTORY, as well as proficiency in the receptor language (in this case English). Much more is needed than just sitting down with one's Strong's and appointing oneself an expert in Bible translation.
The Amplified Bible is someone's wrong interpretation? That statement alone indicates a lack of knowledge and understanding of the Bible and the translation process. One need not like the Amplified, but it is presumptuous and erroneous to declare it to be "someone's wrong interpretation."
|8||Was Satan on earth before Adam||Bible general Archive 1||Radioman||40602|
|You keep repeating that you believe the Bible and in the next breath you say everything you can to tear down the Bible and people's confidence in it. You continue to rattle on and on, contradict yourself over and over, put your ignorance on display, make the wildest assertions, without proof, that make no sense whatever, and refer to things of which you have neither knowledge nor understanding.
It wouldn't hurt YOU to know more. Then again, maybe it would. A little learning is a dangerous thing. So far you are in no danger.
Everyone has the right to their own opinion. But no one has the right to be wrong in their facts. I don't know what you base your opinions on, but it sure isn't the Bible.
|9||RELIGION HOMEWORK HELP||Rom 12:2||Radioman||40315|
|We are never to appraise or evaluate anything by our feelings alone. Everything, including "Jesus Christ Superstar", must be judged in light of the Bible, the Word of God. And the fact is this musical play DOES NOT line up with what is clearly revealed in the Bible about the person and motives of Christ. The composer came right out and said this is the last 7 days of Christ AS SEEN THROUGH THE EYES OF JUDAS. This is the Gospel According to Judas, which is another gospel and another Christ.
You continually drag the Holy Spirit and the name of Christ into your witless defense of the blasphemous production "Jesus Christ Superstar." You piously complain that your conversation with others seems to have degenerated and that people are arguing.
YOU are the one who repeatedly issues personal attacks to all who oppose your unorthodox views. WHY do you think this thread has been restricted?
|10||1 day is 1000 years, why?||2 Pet 3:8||Radioman||39528|
The Bible couldn't be a game to some of these loving and serene people. If one took a game and played as fast and loose with the rules as these people do with the principles of Bible interpretation, the game would have to be cancelled because of lack of structure.
If the player of any game took as light and frivolous an attitude as these dreamers take toward the Bible, that player would be disqualified from the game.
If every individual game player interpreted the rules of the game to suit his own fancy, the game would be cancelled on account of confusion and chaos.
On the other hand, I guess to some the forum itself is a game in which points are scored for blasphemy and foolishness and where the players compete to see who can make the most outrageous assertions -- all without Scriptural evidence.

|12||WAS JESUS GOD ON EARTH TOO OR JUSTMAN||Ps 8:5||Radioman||39189|
|I regard your post to Hank with a mixture of amusement and offense bordering on disgust. What brass (brazen self-assurance) it takes on your part to presume to tell Hank what the purpose of a forum is. It is true that in general the purpose of a forum is to discuss different thoughts and ideas. However, the specific reason why this forum exists is to ask and answer questions about what the Bible does say. The purpose is not to speculate, hypothesize or fantasize about what the Bible does not say.
After reading 1,628 posts by Hank, I can tell you Hank's "little box" is not so little. It contains 66 compartments and is known as the Bible. Likewise, parts of the Bible may fit into YOUR little box and others may not.
Maybe YOU shoud not continue to be an active user. At least not until you learn something about the Bible and get an attitude adjustment.
I doubt that anyone would miss your inciteful ("incite" is a synonym of a word that "implies responsibility for initiating another's action and often connotes underhandedness or evil intention") remarks.
I'm glad you are rethinking the idea that the purpose of a forum is not trying to convert other people to YOUR ways of "thinking".

|14||The Sons of God in Genesis 6:1-4||Genesis||Radioman||31256|
|So many Questions, Notes and Answers to address one question. That must be a question of earth-shaking importance. Does the answer to this question have any bearing on the Trinity, the Deity of Christ, salvation by grace through faith? No, no and no. Is it a question that affects my eternal destiny, my walk with the Lord, possible loss of rewards at the judgment? No, no and no. Does it have anything to do with heresy, apostasy, a great falling away, the date of the Second Coming? No, no, no and no.
Well, then, what is so colossal, sensational, stupendous, and tremendous that the question causes such a stir? The question is: Who are the Sons of God in Genesis 6:1-4? We MUST know. Inquiring minds want to know.
With the war on terrorism, euthansia, stem cell research, abortion, eliminating God from the public schools, gay and lesbian rights, AIDS, STDs, increasing violent crime, mothers murdering their own babies, the church all but dead in the Laodecian age, etc., the greatest issue of our day, the answer to which we await with bated breath, is: Who are the Sons of God in Genesis 6:1-4? Everything depends on the answer to this most crucial of all questions.
Please don't keep us in suspense any longer. All you speculators, Lone Rangers, armchair experts, and other serious students of the Bible, please tell us if you know.

You "have read and studied the Bible and continue to do so"? You could've fooled me.
I can handle someone pointing out flaws in my interpretrations. Go ahead. I'm waiting.
Of course, you have no need for someone pointing out flaws in your interpretations. That is because you are never wrong. Everyone else is wrong (especially if they disagree with you; and most people do). But you yourself are always right.
Instead of remaining yet another Lone Ranger Bible teacher and self-appointed expert, try humbling yourself and becoming a student with a teachable spirit.
I'd be interested to know what, if any, church you attend and what televangelists, if any, you are getting all this information from? If you said none, that you don't have any teachers, that you made all this up as you went along, I couldn't argue with you there.
|17||"ONCE SAVED ALWAYS SAVED"!!!||Matt 22:37||Radioman||30350|
Every time you submit another post to this thread all you are doing is demonstrating your lack of understanding of the Scriptures. If you were more familiar with the teaching of the Bible, there is no way you could say some of the things you say. It may be a good idea for you to take a year off to read and study the Bible before you go around telling everyone else their interpretations make no sense.
Why you choose to continue pursuing the subject of this thread I don't know. With every post you are just digging yourself in deeper. Rather than proving your points, you are merely doing further damage to your credibility.

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 2 Thess 2:3. In this verse the anti-Christ is called the son of perdition.

|Smith's Bible Dictionary
NASB Acts 1:25 "to occupy this ministry and apostleship from which Judas turned aside to go to his own place."
AMPLIFIED Acts 1:25 To take the place in this ministry and receive the position of an apostle, from which Judas fell away and went astray to go [where he belonged] to his own [proper] place.
Robertson's Word Pictures of the New Testament
"To his own place (eiB ton topon ton idion). A bold and picturesque description of the destiny of Judas worthy of Dante's Inferno. There is no doubt in Peter's mind of the destiny of Judas nor of his own guilt. He made ready his own berth and went to it." (http://bible.crosswalk.com/Commentaries/RobertsonsWordPictures/)
John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
on the Whole Bible
1:25 Fell - By his transgression - Some time before his death: to go to his own place - That which his crimes had deserved, and which he had chosen for himself, far from the other apostles, in the region of death. (http://bible.crosswalk.com/Commentaries/WesleysExplanatoryNotes/)

'He perished in his guilt, and "went unto his own place" (Acts 1:25 ).' (http://www.biblestudytools.net/Dictionaries/EastonBibleDictionary/)
Smith's Bible Dictionary
The end of Judas. --
(1) Judas, when he saw the results of his betrayal, "repented himself." (Matthew 27:3-10) He saw his sin in a new light, and "his conscience bounded into fury."
(2) He made ineffectual struggles to escape, by attempting to return the reward to the Pharisees, and when they would not receive it, he cast it down at their feet and left it. (Matthew 27:5) But, (a) restitution of the silver did not undo the wrong; (b) it was restored in a wrong spirit, --a desire for relief rather than hatred of sin; (c) he confessed to the wrong party, or rather to those who should have been secondary, and who could not grand forgiveness; (d) "compunction is not conversion."
(3) The money was used to buy a burial-field for poor strangers. (Matthew 27:6-10)
(4) Judas himself, in his despair, went out and hanged himself, (Matthew 27:5) at Aceldama, on the southern slope of the valley of Hinnom, near Jerusalem, and in the act he fell down a precipice and was dashed into pieces. (Acts 1:18) "And he went to his own place." (Acts 1:25 ) "A guilty conscience must find neither hell or pardon."
(5) Judas’ repentance may be compared to that of Esau. (Genesis 27:32-38; Hebrews 12:16,17) It is contrasted with that of Peter. Judas proved his repentance to be false by immediately committing another sin, suicide. Peter proved his to be true by serving the Lord faithfully ever after. --ED.)
