Southern Baptists Reject Updated NIV Bible

Southern Baptists recently announced their rejection of the new NIV Bible at their annual convention in Phoenix, Ariz., saying they could not commend the translation and its use of gender-neutral language.

The resolution introduced by author Tim Overton of Muncie, Ind., passed by at least a 2-to-1 margin, and only received a handful of opposing votes, Baptist Press reported.

“Southern Baptists repeatedly have affirmed our commitment to the full inspiration and authority of Scripture,” the resolution states. “This translation alters the meaning of hundreds of verses, most significantly by erasing gender-specific details which appear in the original language.”

Expressing “profound disappointment” with Biblica and Zondervan Publishing House, who printed 1.9 million copies of the updated Bible in the first run, the SBC “respectfully [requested]” that Lifeway Bookstores not sell the new version in their stores and encouraged pastors to let their congregations know of the translation errors.

[Why God tarries] The vindictive behavior in the post below is also true of many pastors: Instead of admitting they were wrong and getting right with those they’ve hurt, they vilify the peacemakers — How long to sing this song? It’s up to us!

Being vindictive is bad enough in politics. And is even worse when the politicians openly call themselves ‘Christians,’ like in the post below.

But when those who accept the role of being spokesmen for God, pastors — when they vilify those whom God sent to help them, instead of embracing the truth so real Christianity can happen in our midst — this is so tragic, and this is at the heart of why America is going down while the world watches our demise — wondering what happened.

Church leaders are called to set the standard by what they teach and the lives they live — which would have saved America….

I’ve experienced this firsthand. God prompts certain people to help unity happen among Christians, Jesus’ heartcry for us in John 17 — so the world will then know. But hardhearted pastors, instead of embracing the truth so healing and revival can occur, and so they can even go to heaven — instead, behind the person’s back, they try to tear down the messenger’s character so no one will believe him. I discovered that I was being called ‘divisive,’ for example — when I was just a normal family member who cared enough to say something, instead of looking the other way.

This ‘church’ is all split up, family members everywhere, dismayed and disgruntled, wondering what happened and why it’s taking so long to fix the problem — when things were going so well and were prophesied to get much better, like they should. And we should expect nothing less! Many aren’t even serving God; though, the unrepentant leaders couldn’t be partially responsible. No, no, no — not according to them.

Churches can become dysfunctional just like families can. In dysfunctional families, only the enablers continue in good standing — those who keep their mouths shut — or better yet, those who defend the abusers from the problem solvers’ solutions that would require real change so love can happen again.

And then the enablers become the abusers too.

But throughout, God is not mocked. He can’t be fooled. And we’ll reap what we’ve sown, both now and in eternity.

God is waiting for us to abide in Him, while leadership is actually blaming God for His apparent distance, saying God will sovereignly move when He wants to move. Though God has been wanting to move all along — which is real Christianity — God giving grace to the humble.

“God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.” God wants so much to empower and fill us. He’s been ready and waiting all of this time. He wants revival to come! But it’s totally up to us:

My 1990 Key-to-Revival Prophecy: “There is might and there is power and there is glory, but it is being withheld until these relationships are made right, until we love our brother enough to…”

How many more will die, going who-knows-where, and how much further will America fall before pastors get right with those they’ve hurt?

In the words of U2:

How long to sing this song
How long to sing this song
How long…how long…how long…
How long…to sing this song

It’s up to us to get this thing going. God isn’t going to make people obey Him.

Sincerely, from the heart,

“You know, her charisma was moving, there’s absolutely no doubt about that… Blind Allegiance is a tale about somebody – myself – who worshipped someone who did not deserve worship. In my beliefs, you know, worship should belong to God, not a person. And the sad thing is is that she wanted to be worshipped. She wanted people out there to believe she was perfect and not real.”
.

“I believe our leaders should be strong, honest, and principled, and we detail in “Blind Allegiance” that she is not any of those things with very specific examples, a lot of times her own words. I do not believe she would be a good leader. I do not want to see her lead a party, I do not want to see her lead a country.”

Frank Bailey: Sarah Palin Wanted to be Worshiped Like Jesus

May 24, 2011
By Sarah Jones

I’ve been pointing out the differences between Sarah Palin’s stated philosophy and belief in Christianity and her actions for quite some time now. I was particularly distressed when Palin used words like “asinine” to describe her own constituents in a press release. These are not the words of a Christian person and certainly not the words of a responsible leader. Of course, the truth of the matter is that she is Domininist, who uses her so-called Christianity as a weapon of power in order to claim the big prize….

The horror some of us feel over Palin isn’t about her politics or faith, as much as she martyrs herself on the pretend cross of her Christian charade. It’s about her character.

* * *

MSNBC:

Martin Bashir: Vindictive attacks, conspiracy, paranoia, and a single-minded ambition. It’s all part of daily life as a Sarah Palin staffer according to a scathing new tell-all. A former aide portrays Palin as incompetent and ethically compromised during her tenure as Alaska governor and perhaps most pertinently the book casts real doubt on her personal faith and conduct. Frank Bailey is the former staffer behind the book entitled “Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin”.

Martin: Sarah Palin has repeatedly traded as you know on her Christian faith. In your book you write love thy neighbor? Turn the other cheek? Forgiveness? These new testament concepts were not part of Sarah’s old testament temperament. Both eyes for a eye was the rule and vanquishing enemies became a goal. What did you think of her desire for vengeance and that desire to be vindictive?

Frank Bailey: You know, she was obsessive about it. It was difficult because I pushed so hard to help her in that, and I mean a lot of the book is a confession about some of the things I was involved in that I really, truly regret. I have had to go back to folks and apologize to them for some of my actions. Tearing down their character. But she had to put her image up as this perfect person.

This is mostly a great article! I would also rather share a foxhole with an agnostic who is trying to find and do the truth than with a ‘Christian’ who doesn’t uphold the truth nor does he really love his brother.

And I agree with Chuck here. Jesse Ventura comes to mind; though, some of his positions concern me:

In speeches all over America, I have surprised many Christian people when I say, I would rather vote for an unbeliever who would preserve, protect, and defend the US Constitution, than vote for a believer who would NOT preserve, protect, and defend the US Constitution.

But I would probably disagree with Chuck’s reasoning here:

Of course, I can hear many Christians now saying under their breath, “But we need REAL Christians in public office.”

Chuck lists the recent ‘Christian’ Presidents who have unconstitutionally misled America, and then says:

Forget the rhetoric! Forget the label! Forget the religious piety! If our public servants do not submit themselves to the Constitution to which they swore an oath before God and men, they are liars and frauds and should be treated as such!

Had these men been REAL Christians they could be “liars and frauds,” according to what the Bible really says: Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God?

And REAL Christians love their neighbors even if he wears a turban and she wears a burka — and they live overseas where we can’t hear the bombs go off or see the blood — which is not true of:

Sarah Palin demonstrates why most evangelicals dissed Ron Paul, who wanted to bring the troops home. ‘Christians’ have two sets of books: one for US and one for THEM (“who don’t deserve rights”). THEY’re not our ‘neighbor’ whom Jesus commanded US to love as much as ourselves. Maybe that’s why most evangelicals refuse to investigate 9/11. If THEY didn’t take down the towers…???

Jesus said “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called children of God.” Most ‘Christians’ supported George W. Bush even in his second term when he was clearly pro-torture and pro-murder.

As a Baptist pastor, Chuck probably has a standard Baptist view as to what is a REAL Christian is, which unfortunately differs from what the Bible really says. This is probably why we differ slightly here.

Clearly, many agnostics are more Christian than most ‘Christians.’

And many agnostics would become Christians if most ‘Christians’ were REAL Christians.

Then reverse-Christian politicians could no longer get away with calling themselves ‘Christians.’

Letter From An Agnostic

I couldn’t count how many times I’ve heard a sincere Christian say to me, “Chuck, all we have to do is elect more Christians to public office.” I wish it was only that easy! The fact is we have been electing “Christians” to public office for decades. In fact, when is the last time you voted for someone who did NOT proclaim to be a Christian? Most everyone in public office claims to be a Christian. In my whole life, I never remember a candidate for public office saying, “Vote for me; I’m an atheist.” Do you?

Richard Nixon claimed to be a Christian; Gerald Ford claimed to be a Christian; Jimmy Carter claimed to be a Christian (he even taught Sunday School and took alcohol out of the White House); Ronald Reagan claimed to be a Christian; Bill Clinton claimed to be a Christian (how many times did we see Clinton on his way to church with his giant-print Bible under his arm?); George Bush I and II claimed to be a Christian. Bush II held prayer meetings in the White House we are told. Even Barack Obama claims to be a Christian. Ditto for virtually every congressman and senator ever elected. Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives, men and women, whites and blacks: they all claim to be Christians. If electing “Christians” was all we needed to do, we should be in the Millennial Kingdom by now!

Of course, I can hear many Christians now saying under their breath, “But we need REAL Christians in public office.” And, of course, the people saying this are the ones who are qualified to know which ones are REAL Christians and which ones aren’t. Right?

In speeches all over America, I have surprised many Christian people when I say, I would rather vote for an unbeliever who would preserve, protect, and defend the US Constitution, than vote for a believer who would NOT preserve, protect, and defend the US Constitution.

When a civil magistrate assumes public office, he or she does not swear an oath to be a “good Christian,” or to be a “good conservative,” or to read their Bible and pray everyday. What they do swear to, however, is to “preserve, protect, and defend” the US Constitution.

The reason why it doesn’t matter to a hill of beans whether we elect Republicans or Democrats, or liberals or conservatives, or Baptists or Catholics, etc., is because, for the most part, none of them cares one iota about honoring their oath of office to be faithful to the Constitution! But holding our elected officials to the Constitution should be the primary focus of any public servant’s constituents. Forget the rhetoric! Forget the label! Forget the religious piety! If our public servants do not submit themselves to the Constitution to which they swore an oath before God and men, they are liars and frauds and should be treated as such!

But, because the vast majority of Americans do not themselves understand, appreciate, and value fidelity to the Constitution, they are content to let their politicians routinely ignore and trample constitutional government. Therefore, Christian Democrats cheer the unconstitutional, loathsome policies and decisions of “Christian” Jimmy Carter, and Christian Republicans cheer the unconstitutional, loathsome policies and decisions of “Christian” George W. Bush.

And, as Sonny and Cher sang, “The Beat Goes On.” And the rush toward bigger and bigger government, less and less freedom, and more and more socialism goes on–all these “Christians” in public office notwithstanding.

In the midst of all this duplicity and chicanery come honest, freedom-loving, constitutionalists of all stripes, shapes, and sizes: men and women from all persuasions, backgrounds, and education who understand the principles of constitution government enough to be truly considered a friend of freedom. That’s why I have often said, not all Christians are our friends, and not all unbelievers are our enemies.

Case in point…

The understanding, wisdom, and character that is represented in the above blog is rarely demonstrated in any church, from any churchman, or from any pastor! I would sooner share a foxhole with this agnostic (and try to win him to the Lord at the same time) than with many professing Christians.

When did we Christians lose our character? When did we lose our honor? When did we forget what it means to be Freemen? When did we forget the principles of constitutional government? When did we lose our understanding of Natural Law and Natural Rights?

UNFORGIVENESS – A CAUSE of MAJOR BONDAGE

Freedom for the people!!!

From: Johnthebaptisttv… (Andrew Strom)

NOTE: If you ever talk to someone involved in Deliverance ministry they will tell you that the most common cause of severe “demonic” problems in a person’s life is “UNFORGIVENESS”. Clinging on to bitterness or grudges is virtually the singlemost dangerous spiritual thing that a person can do. It can even cause physical sickness. And yet it is so common – even in the church! Below is a great article on this topic by Rodney Francis…

UNFORGIVENESS – A CAUSE of MAJOR BONDAGE
-by Rodney W. Francis.

It has been said that the major cause of hindrances and bondages in the lives of Christians is that of unforgiveness. Every one of us will have experienced things in our lives, disagreements, criticisms, accusations (both true and false) against us. We cannot avoid these things happening. Even Jesus said that it was “impossible but that offences would come” (Luke 17:1). Offences are “stumbling blocks” which come against us ~ things said and done to us to put us down, or to try and subject us to someone else’s will [James-3 curse us – editor], etc. So, no matter how well we handle relationships, etc., we will all face negative things being thrown at us. Some will “attack” us if for no other reason but that they are jealous of us.

For the Christian we must accept that these things will happen in our lives.

· The big issue is how we deal with them!

It is very important to realize that once the offence has taken place, that we cannot change that. What we can change is our response to it, and how we allow it to affect us. The sooner we can take these matters to the Lord and leave them with Him ~ and at the same time practice forgiveness toward those who have offended us ~ the sooner we will be able to get on with our lives and continue to be fruitful in His service. But if we allow those criticisms to get into our emotions and cause us to re-act negatively and to start “bad mouthing” that person who has offended (and hurt) us, then it will quickly get into our spirit and lodge there. Once that happens, then we become the loser in the situation ~ even if the accusations are wrong! It is so important that we learn to keep short accounts with God and with people; otherwise we will start on a downward slippery slope that can cause us to finish up being hurt, angry, resentful, “bitter and twisted”, carrying a wounded spirit in the process. None of us can afford to let that happen. Yet, in my travels in numbers of countries, I am finding wounded Christians that have to be set free

It is sad, but true, that many who have a prophetic calling in God have been “put down” or prevented from functioning. This has caused many to be “shut down,” be hurt and to go inwards, which does not allow them to pursue and fulfil their calling. Tragically, many Christian Leaders have been guilty of clamping down on those who are trying to exercise their Spiritual Gifts. Regardless of who caused the offence we all need to practice forgiveness. Let me emphasize strongly to you: carrying unforgiveness in your heart is not worth it! There is nothing good or justifiable in our carrying unforgiveness. If you have any unforgiveness in your heart and life right now, let me encourage you to make it a top priority to deal with it, and to get rid of it. Take it to JESUS ~ give it to Him, as He is the only One who can take it away from us. It is He that we are called to please; and our carrying unforgiveness does not please Him at all. In fact unforgiveness stops God from forgiving us of our many offences against Him (Matthew 6:14-15)! Right now, come before the Lord Jesus and give it all to Him.

“When Paul says works he means works of the law.
[e.g. Gal. 2:16 & Rom. 3:28]
But when James talks about works he doesn’t mean that.
I think it’s better translated…with the word actions.
And what James is saying is faith without actions is dead
not faith without works of the law.

And he uses the illustration that love without actions is no use. …
Unless you act in faith you don’t have faith.
Professing faith can’t save you.
He says even the devils believe….”

“Faith without actions cannot save you.
It’s as dead as a corpse.”
