William Tyndale and the Birth of the English Bible

General NewsCourtesy GCI

On October 6, 1536, Englishman William Tyndale (c.1494-1536) was strangled by the civil executioner in Belgium and his dead body was burned at the stake. His crime? Tyndale had translated the New Testament and major portions of the Old Testament from the original languages into English so that all English-speaking Christians could read the Scriptures in their own tongue.

Do We Have the Right Books in the Bible?

General NewsIn Dan Brown’s novel The Da Vinci Code, one of the main characters says that the Roman Emperor Constantine decided which books should be in the New Testament. He supposedly "commissioned and financed a new Bible, which omitted those gospels that spoke of Christ’s human traits and embellished those gospels that made him godlike. The earlier gospels were outlawed, gathered up, and burned" (p. 234).

The Da Vinci Code, despite its claim to be based on fact, is actually fiction — and so is the above claim. It’s not hard to find historical blunders in the book. Let’s look at one — the question of canonization, or the way in which the New Testament books were collected into one book.

I stopped listening to Pastor Mark’s podcasts

CultureJared C. Wilson
I stopped listening to Pastor Mark’s podcasts about five years ago and stopped reading his books a few years later, mainly because I became discouraged by his drift from substantive expository preaching. He seemed to have moved away from a rigid focus on the text and adopted more of a “start with the text, expand to a rant” kind of preaching style, and it grew tiresome to me. Even so and ever since, I have publicly defended Pastor Mark a few times over the last few years on a few points. I have disagreed with a few of his thoughts publicly, as well, but never in any substantive way, keeping the more concerning disagreements to myself.

Shoes or Sandals?

Why King James?
by: Pastor Steve Van Nattan

Here are the texts under consideration:

Matthew 10:9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,
10 Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.
11 And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, enquire who in it is worthy; and there abide till ye go thence.

Mark 6:8 And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:
9 But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.
10 And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.

Luke 10:3 Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
4 Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way.
5 And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house.

The Bible in less than a day

BaptismAdapted from faithfacts

These are questions that are always common at any time and place:
What is the origin of mankind—where did we come from?
What is our purpose in life?
How do we know how to live our life?
How do we get to heaven (and avoid hell)?
In this study we will answer these and many other questions. The purpose of the course is to guide you through some of the highlights of the Bible. While it is only a brief overview covering a small portion of Scripture, this outline covers most of the basic concepts of the Christian faith.

You may be coming to this study from a particular perspective. You may have a curious or an academic approach, seeking to find some intellectual satisfaction in religion. Or you may even be an atheist, looking for ways to satisfy your previously conceived ideas.

Perhaps you are broken and hurting, and desperately need spiritual help. Or perhaps you are self-assured, confident in where you are at this time—but an examination of your weaknesses would actually help you deal with your selfishness and lack of concern for others.

Our study will jump around throughout the Bible to focus on important themes. We suggest that you read every verse listed in this study that has the notation READ immediately in front of it; others may be skipped to speed up the study. While we will offer our commentary as an aid, the important thing is for you to let the words of the Bible speak to you. You can complete the study, if you choose to do so, in one sitting—in less than a day. Set aside a few hours one day to go through the entire study. Or you might want to break it up into two or three parts.

The Bible is an amazing document: an incredibly rich book of books: 66 books from approximately 40 different writers in 3 different languages over a span greater than 1500 years, all with a consistent theme. It is certainly the most influential book in history. Whether Christian or not, one’s education is incomplete until you have studied this book.

There is tremendous misinformation over what is actually in the Bible. Sadly, many people who have gone to church for years still do not have a comprehensive understanding of the Bible. Lifelong Christians still learn much and deepen their knowledge of God by reading Scripture. The Bible reveals God’s thoughts, his heart, his plans.

Dear God

Why People Are So Confused About God

by David J. Stewart


Never in American history have people been any more confused about God and the Bible than they are today. Having been a born again believer for over 25 years, I don't have a problem recognizing the devil at work. The devil is a master counterfeiter, a fraudster. Satan is so deceitful that he even presents himself to mankind as an "angel of light" (2nd Corinthians 11:14). This is a very interesting statement..."an angel of light". An "angel" is a spirit. Satan is a spirit, and he appears as a spirit of light (or spirit of God and truth). If you understand this Biblical teaching, then it won't be very difficult to see the devil in his sheep's clothing. We see Satan's spirit at work in the children of disobedience (Ephesians 2:2).

Hotel California


Anton LaVey and Hotel California

"And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?" —Revelation 13:4

Hotel California is the hit album and song produced in 1976 by the Eagles' rock band.

On the inside of the album cover, pictured to the right, Anton LaVey (founder of the Church of Satan in 1966) is seen peering down from the balcony (who is circled in red).

The Eagles' manager, Larry Salter, admitted in the Waco Tribune-Herald (Feb. 28, 1982), that the Eagles were involved with the Church of Satan! Not surprisingly, one of the Eagles' songs is titled “Have A Good Day in Hell.”

Around the world, the song Hotel California is still aired on radio waves tens-of-thousands of times per day. The song has become as a national anthem in America! Nearly every band performs the song.

Here are some of the demonic lyrics from the song, Hotel California...

Teen Idols

Teen Idols

By Terry Watkins

Words "etched" into your impressionable young son or daughters minds — that would make any sane mom or dad "go ballistic".

It’s amazing the "hoodwink" the media and the producers of the "teen idol-rock-world" has pulled on the average parent. The "teen idol" picture painted by the image-makers is a "baby-innocent, squeaky-clean, puppy-love, high-morals, boy-next-door" portrait.

As one "fooled" mother comments in Express Writer:, "Their [Backstreet Boys] focus is on good morals. . ." (Express Writer, Sunday, August 16, 1998)

Well, mom, you might better sit down and fasten your seat belt. . . this ride might get rough. . .

CCM

Why not use rock as a tool to reach young people?

from Dial-the-Truth Ministries

One of the main justifications of CCM is using rock as "a tool to reach people" for Christ. The idea is to "entice" the lost person into listening to the music by making it sound like the world's music. Then once they're "rockin-out" - subtly "sneak" in the Lord Jesus Christ. Look like "rock", sound like "rock", act like "rock" and once they're "sucked-in" - slip in the Lord Jesus Christ!
While this may sound great on the surface, as Christians our final authority is the Word of God. We as Christians are to "judge" anything and everything by the Word of God. As you'll soon read, using rock music as a method of evangelizing is completely against the Word of God. We have documented FOUR clear and serious Biblical errors. This page is lengthy, but please read it prayerfully and carefully, in it's entirety. Also please note, the many clear scripture references, and many more could be given.

N O T I C E

We challenge anyone - any preacher, CCM artist, author, musician, Christian - ANYONE - to refute with scripture, the logic and the scriptures for the following errors for using rock as a tool for reaching the lost. If anyone can adequately, Biblically, refute our arguments - we will gladly remove this page (and many others against Christian rock) from our web site.
Please note: We are not interested in opinions, arguments, debates, what you've seen, heard, feel or experienced, what you think about so and so, et al. We are interested in only in "what saith the Lord".
