The Right Answer

In my previous post I discussed some teachers asking the wrong question, but have I really helped anyone if I do not try to provide the right answer.

What’s the right answer:

And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say? Luke 6:46 KJV

If women are not supposed to speak in Church how can I teach them? First, no man can give women the permission to speak in Church. If it is a shame for women to speak in Church then all they can do is participate in their shame. Women are instructed to ask questions of their husband at home. What if they aren’t married? I suppose they could write their question on a piece of paper and hand it to the preacher/teacher or they could ask their father at home. I believe the Lord himself will teach you if you pray and read the Holy Bible.

What about Roman’s 16:17-18? If God says avoid someone, then you should avoid them, you don’t ask how can I teach them and try to circumvent the word of God. Are you wiser than God? In another place it says, Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Galatians 6:1 KJV

Which translators should we trust?

The King James Version Holy Bible was translated under the authority of King James of England. If you read the Bible you likely know Kings are appointed by God.

Daniel 2:20-22 KJV

Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: [21] And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: [22] He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

The work of translation is complete in the KJV.

Why do I glorify the KJV? Two reasons. First, I want you to use the KJV as I do. Secondly, many preachers today use statements such as the Greek originally says or other translations say… .

What are they really saying. When preachers say the Greek originally says they are quoting from a supposedly direct translation Greek Bible. Keep in mind this Bible was written by modern translators. Do you want to put your faith in authorized translators or in unauthorized ones?

Some preachers say another translation puts it thusly. What are they saying? They are saying the KJV is insufficient or wrong. It is nothing more than an attempt to sound learned and express mastery of the subject.

Understanding the KJV can be difficult enough without trying to re-translate the Greek and Hebrew, but it is the translation I trust. As a follower of Christ I urge you to do the same.
