I made a comment to a friend a few months back and at that time, I had made a note so I wouldn’t forget. I found it in my Bible this past weekend before church. Ya see, I have a ton of notes all over inside my Bible and papers are beginning to fall out. Anyway, I found the note and I have to write something up that is based on that note.
Here is a statement that raised this issue about chaos, “God is in CONTROL!”
So then… why the chaos in our life?
Quite a few times lately, I've found myself thinking, "It won't hurt to let my guard down just a little bit, for just a little while.".
Every time I've done this, I've ended up doing something I shouldn't have done.
Let me tell all of you from experience:
It WILL hurt to let your guard down just a little bit, for just a little while.
Ad hominem arguments basically go along the lines of "Person X has some kind of flaw, therefore he or she is in the wrong on issue X.".
I often see sin in a person's life being used as an ad hominem argument.
Another thing I see, closely related, but not exactly the same, is an unsaved person being unsaved being used as an ad hominem argument.
This gets into all kinds of things.
This is basically an information post for those who care about this stuff. This is also why I have restricted posting on this subject not to cause a fuss. So to those who would be interested in knowing this about the NIV.
The NIV had homosexuals on the translation committee. Dr. Virginia Mollenkott is an open homosexual. Which makes me wonder why she was allowed to be on the committee. You can read more about this here: http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Bible..._committee.htm
Proverbs 2:1-5, “My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding - indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God.”
It is estimated that every year some 300,000 new books are published worldwide.
