I met My lord when I was 17 years Old. I believe that, what is called Strict and particular Baptist', is the closest from of denominationalism to the New testament standard. It took some 18 years of study to come to this conclusion. I am also persuaded that 'The Sovereignty of God' is at the heart of Gods revelation to us, in His Word. I believe that In John Calvin's TULIP, we have a very clear statement of the mystery of Christ, in His relationship with His bride. I have believed and have come to know, that Jesus Christ is our sovereign God and Savior. Only in the LORD are righteousness and strength.!

comment Revelations 18:23 - Who or what are the “Merchants” and the “magic spell” that led the whole Earth astray?
But for some 15 years I have listened to the Word of God only and questions I tried for years to understand He explained in 2 seconds and hundreds of questions I have had answered.! "Unless the Lord builds the house the builders build in vein"! I had heard it said that two things are vital for a Christian, prayer and the word...it sounded so simple, I loved all my histories, theologies and commentaries and rarely sat and listen to the Word, sometimes we miss the wood for the trees. The wilderness is the best place to listen to Gods voice! That may mean just you and The Word. Still quiet voice.

@MarkEdward Mark I understand what your saying now. You mean, whether the original readers were right or wrong is irrelevant, your intention is to simply reveal what they thought, irrespective of weather they were right or wrong. I understand now, I hope..! Forgive me I am not familiar with the terms any longer. To be honest I spent many years doing so and I found to much information can be a bad thing. I found that in many words there is some sin. Sometimes we need to step back from all the voices and listen to One and pray. I had many questions some years ago and had many more from those...

@Mike Yes the answer to this question is simple but what is really interesting, is what it reveals about man. People truly believe that if they are wealthy or have easy interesting jobs they are blessed by God. Job had to learn a hard lesson to understand the nature of grace..I fear most, who claim the name of Christ, have never been through the trial of fire, where we are seen to be but dross and dust. Only when we see we have nothing, do we look outside of self for righteousness and find it alone in Jesus. A persons first meeting with Christ is one of exposure or nakedness! Painful and pure.

The self righteous and physically rich will always miss- interpret this. The fallen mind of man thinks, that if it is rich in worldly goods, it is blessed, how far from the truth and yet how prevalent is this notion. Not many rich, not many noble, not many wise,for God has chosen the foolish, the weak, to put to naught...No doubt the rulers of Christs day looked down upon Jesus, as he was a manual worker. The ruling classes always consider themselves as superior. Their prejudices supported by miss-interpretations of scripture. From Nazareth, can anything good come out of Nazareth.

Yes Mike and really that is the whole point of Ecclesiastes as you well know. Solomon truly and clearly lays before mankind the vanity of life without God. "What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and looses his soul." Solomon was well qualified by his wanderings through pleasure and wisdom and madness to pronounce on the man without God. He walked his way and found it to be empty and vain. I think you have touched the spirit of my question in a beautiful way. We are all under the curse so there is no distinction. Your interpretation is perfect. (continued)

comment What do the words “For the letter killeth” mean in 2 Corinthians 3:6
I understand that 'ceremonial law' is should we say 'mans invention'. As a label it is very clear what is meant by it, that is all the temple duties sacrifices etc connected with the Old Covenant. I believe some people claim that the 'letter' is the ceremonial law, that's why I put it in the question!

So the law (letter) kills by exposing our need for mercy in Christ. When the law came I died.

comment Who is “The Son” in Hebrews chapter 1: 8 ? Is He God in the strictest sense of the word, or a created being?
To say that every translator team is biased doctrinaly is to deny that a serious christian is only interested in making clear the truth and I think most of them have done a decent job. There is a big difference between protestant traditions and a cult that would deny the Godhood of God. Clarity is the purpose of a good translator. The protestant tradition has accomplished that in every area necessary for the furtherance of the Gospel and the good news. As regards the Trinity, They the Godhead are something every child of God feels and knows. Once they are known it seems pointless to question!
