It was certainly true that the Christian church gradually hid the truth of the Gospel and replaced scriptural truth with tradition. This eventually led in the 16th century to the reformation. Men like Martin Luther, John Calvin, Huldrych Zwingli and John Knox studied the Bible for themselves in its original language (Hebrew and Greek) and returned Christianity to God’s revealed truth. This just so happened at a time when the printing press was invented and the Bible could not only be translated into the people’s native language but it could be printed and distributed in large numbers. The reformation started by great scholars was sustained by every person having access to God’s Word, the Bible (Old and New Testements).

Your grasp of Christian theology is most lacking but there is a common belief among Muslims that Christians are “sluffing their sin off on Jesus” and therefore care not about sinning. This is a big lie because no man can earn God’s favor by good deeds. All sin needs a payment we cannot make. But he who recognizes the value and incredible cost of God’s free gift of salvation, through Christ, genuinely wants to be good, be holy. We are good doers in response to our salvation, not to earn our salvation. This is totally contrary to Muslim faith and hence rejects the substitutional sacrifice of Christ.

What he did not disclose last night is that the money he has funded his campaign with to-date has been LOANED to his campaign fund. He clearly intends to take money for the general election campaign and pay himself back the LOANED primary campaign funds. Such a shrewd businessman.

Seriously!? The KJV of the Bible is like all Bibles, a copy of a copy of a translation of a copy. It is not itself inspired but an English translation of pre existing Hebrew, Greek, and Latin versions. The Dead SeA scrolls serve as a huge opportunity to prove that all of these copies have been reliably recorded over 1000sof years by scribes. There were no Xerox machines you see.
A second witness of The Bible has already been revealed. It is known as the everlasting gospel in Revelations (14:6). It is also known as the Stick of Joseph by Ezekiel (37:16-19). It the writings of ancient Israelites (descendants of Ephraim and Manasseh) that departed Jerusalem before its destruction in 600 AD and includes God's dealings with this people throughout the next 1000 years. It is known as The Book of Mormon - Another Testament of Jesus Christ.
Although they are finding that the 12 copies they found of Isaiah are the exact same text as in the KJV. King James did go back to all the ancient Jewish texts to find the original chapters of the Old Testament. I think the Jews kept excellent records of their history so they turned out in be compliance with the scrolls.
I do still think it's worth it, I love archaeology, you never know what you're going to find in addition since the King James wouldn't have had access to the Dead Sea Scrolls. More accurate.
As much as I like the KJV, it was compiled from manuscripts that were available to one Erasmus in the late 1500's, whose scholarly attempts to assemble what he thought the 'original' texts would look like gave rise to what is known as the Stephens text, from which the KJV was translated.
Since that time, more manuscripts have been discovered in not only Latin and Greek but Aramaic as well. Later versions of the Bible have not only incorporated Erasmus's work but later scholars as well. If you want more information, do a search for "critical Greek text" and see what you find. There are at least seven various attempts since Erasmus.
read the book of ruth......It was ruth and her people who transcribed the text from the jews.
The Roman Catholic Church based its Latin Vulgate on the Egyptian Septuagint Version, written in Greek. These largely Samaritan religionists had no commission to preserve the Scriptures. They did not fear the God of Israel, and proceeded to group the Scriptures as they saw fit. They rearranged the order of the Old Testament books according to subject, ignoring the inspired order of the Law, the Prophets and the Psalms.
But it was only the order that the Catholics changed, not the content and not the selection of books. The Catholics did not canonize the Bible!
Add to the mix of early compilers of Scripture, the Aramaic speaking Christians. The Syriac versions as they were called were some of the most diligently copied and preserved manuscripts. There was a monumental work compiled by Origen (who doesn't enjoy some of the best press..:) called The Hexapla. It essentially was the first known attempt at a multi-language translation of the Bible, both OT and NT. It was some 50 volumes and had six columns each in a different language particular to the world in which Origen lived. The Syro-Hexapla was a copy of his work and was only the Syriac (Aramaic) column. While no copies of the Hexapla are known to have survived, there are fragments of the Syro-Hexapla that have been found. I heard a professor of Syriac scriptures, whose name was Arthur Voobus speaking about his work and discoveries of ancient Syriac versions and he believed he had found a fragment of a copy of this particular Syriac version. His estimation of the Aramaic speaking Christians was that they above the others had done more to preserve the ancient copies they had in their possession than their Latin or Greek brothers in Christ had done. Just food for thoughtful consideration. :)

Beyond the robotic repetitiveness of Rubio’s statement during the debate it was just a very WEAK statement. “Obama is trying to CHANGE America”! What the hell does that mean? It could mean anything. Everyone on that stage is there to change America. If you want to say that Obama is purposely trying to harm America, weaken America, destroy America, redefine America, then SAY THAT! Don’t drivel on and on with a benignly safe and diluted statement and expect people to resinate to it. Get some NADS Marco and say what you really mean. Because was you really meant to say could not have been more correct as Mr. Limbaugh agrees.

I have never heard Barack Obama say anything that would lead me to believe he has ever placed his faith in Jesus Christ. Never. On the contrary, he has been the first to bully Christians for even suggesting Islam is responsible for the scurge of terrorism on this planet. Any genuine association with “Christian” people and churches has been limited to the most progressive and most anti-American sorts that are not Christian at all but only socialists, statists, and leftists. No the president is not a Christian but chose to put on a charade for purely political purposes. We were not fooled who know the mark of true followers of Christ.

Aren’t they cute? So young. So naive. So easily fooled. Gotta love it.
A lot of Democrats are like that in Iowa and Minnesota. They think they are informed. But they do live in a bubble. They have been trained well by Chicago. And they hold a lot of white liberal guilt. And white liberal privilege. lol ..hence the reason saying everyone should pay for their education.

Holy crap! If this is not a prosecutable offense I don’t know what is.

Make no mistake. The goal is anarchy followed by a tyranny. The Fascist Left is behind this and all such movements spreading hate and contempt for American society. George Soros and his minions are behind this as they were behind OWS.

The best GOP campaign effort going is BlackLivesMatter. These anarchists are doing more to convince large numbers of otherwise limp minded liberals and Democrats that the GOP is needed to clean up Obama’s train wreck.

A jewish leftist? Absolutely nothing new here. That path is well worn.
It's so well worn not even weeds grow on that path

Don’t be an idiot. Any Christian claiming Muslims are fellow believers of the Book are just plain lying. The Quran is not the revelation of God. It is instead authored by Satan himself and denies Jesus is the Christ. You cannot throw a greater insult at God than that.

AllAbout – regrettably she rejected one satanic worldview and ran to another. She’s like a woman who moves from one abusive relationship to another.

Yes indeed. Both are beasts with the same head. Both seek the destruction of humans world-wide.

The Christian reformation was about correcting some bad theology that had crept into the Church over the centuries which never had any basis is what Jesus did or taught. Chief among these was that salvation is not earned or merited and that our good deeds and good works are not the means to gain God’s favor. Our faith in Jesus Christ and our acceptance that his work on the cross is full and final payment for our sins is all that one needs to find favor with God and thus, eternal life. Our good works and love toward one another are the Godly response to God’s grace (gift of salvation) and not the means by which we earn it.
