Question: "Why are the newer translations of the Bible missing verses? Are the newer translations taking verses out of the Bible? The common response that I hear is that the translators did not believe certain verses should have been in the Bible to begin with. Since the KJV was translated in A. When Bible scholars researched through these manuscripts, they discovered some differences. It seems that over the course of years, some words, phrases, and even sentences were added to the Bible either intentionally or accidentally.
The verses mentioned above are simply not found in the oldest and most reliable manuscripts. So, the newer translations remove these verses or place them in footnotes or in the margin because they do not truly belong in the Bible. It is important to remember, however, that the verses in question are of minor significance. These are preserved intact through the work of the Holy Spirit, who safeguards the Word of God for all generations.

A question about Paul Also, some dispute that Saul would have been sent so far away to Damascus to arrest Christian Jews. Do you have a message that would explain this? Marty M. Would you use the following and if not, why would you not want to use the Westminster Confession of Faith, the Larger Catechism and the London Baptist Confession of Faith?
In other words which confessions of faith should we not use as a person who is not a Calvinist or Hyper Calvinist? Being more of what you call a Calminian. Are most people that are raised in a cult "bubble" going to hell? And why doesn't God seem to do more to make the truth known so many aren't deceived?

We seem to go over Freud, Adler, Carl Jung, etc. As I become more discerning and grow in knowledge on the Truth of God's Word, I become uncomfortable in some of the things I hear. I'm not clear on everything, but we are taught All Truth is God's Truth. While I agree all Truth is from the Lord, I wonder why if we find these "theories" in Scripture, then why don't we just stick to the Scripture. I'm not sure. In your opinion is the Integration model a violation of Psalm, one as it seems to be to me, considering you are familiar with the integration model?
What are the biblical reasons that allow for divorce and further what does the Bible say about marrying someone new after a divorce? In Judges 11, was Jephthah's vow fulfilled or was it a vow of perpetual virginity for his daughter? Is it biblical to not have wine during communion? I want to believe this proverb is a promise that if I follow God's plan and design for family and teaching and training my children, then my children will come to a personal faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
A more popular interpretation seems to be that this proverb is a principle that is sometimes true, but not always. Would God tell us in His Word how to train our children, but then leave the results to chance? I am a homeschooling mother of ten. All my children who are old enough to understand are following God. I don't take credit for that, but try to share that God's methods of family and parenting work. But others say not to give false hope to young parents or bring grief to older parents who have "failed.

A caller from Beaufort says that in the past, he was taught that thoughts are not "sin", only taking action on the thoughts are sinful. What is Pastor Broggi's opinion on this and where in scripture does it address this? Dan, Peterborough, NH - I was wondering what Pastor Broggi's thoughts were on handing out Gospel tracts as an effective means of sharing the message of salvation. As part of my occupation working in minor league baseball, I travel constantly. I like to hand out various gospel tracts mostly when I'm in hotels, or when at a restaurant.
But, I often wonder if leaving behind a Gospel Tract is an effective means of evangelism. I understand that God gets the glory and His Word will not return void Isaiah , and Paul states in 1 Corinthians that he plants, Apollos watered, but God causes the growth. William N. Can you comment on why believers should either believe these are still active and biblical or that they are not biblical or not for today? Additionally, charismatics and Pentecostals believe in private prayer language. Is this the same as what Paul is writing about as permissible in believer assemblies?
Would you comment on this as well? Rob B. Is it not clearly laid out in Revelation that once the peace agreement is signed in Israel, giving the Jewish people the authority to build their temple, that the clock starts it's 7-year countdown to Jesus' return? If Revelation gives us a timeline, how can "no one know"? Is Jesus possible speaking of the beginning of a "time period" of Daniel's 70th week, similar to the analogy you use frequently "the day of my youth"? I bring this up because, as I'm sure you've witnessed as well, there has been an overwhelming amount of speculation of events being linked to Festivals and Astrological signs, yet nothing "concrete" has occurred.
Maybe this is a prophetic fulfillment in itself of the "scoffers" I'm a friend of Ken Scribner Dan's brother , not sure if you keep in touch with Dan, but he's doing amazing work with the Joshua Project. Ryan M. Michael Brown of the line of fire radio? Joseph T. The Bible clearly states that Jesus says of the elements "this is my body and this is my blood.

He practices the Jewish Sabbath, the feasts and the dietary restrictions etc. I'm not saying any of this is bad in itself but did not Christ fulfill all this and are we not free from the law and its demands?
Was not the law our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ? Denise, Bluffton, SC - My son is believing a lie and living a gay lifestyle. I love my son and I have not turned my back on him. What does God expect of me as his parent? My fear is facing God and His righteousness one day; hearing His rebuke that I did not do more to help my son see the truth.
A caller's children would like to know what happened to Elijah's physical body in 2 Kings 2 when he was taken up to heaven? What is Pastor Broggi's take on Christians celebrating Halloween, given the holiday's true origin? I had thoughts like 1. God is a God of life, but Halloween focuses on death.
Should I celebrate a holiday where people decorate their front yards with tombstones? The Scriptures tell us to put away deeds of darkness Rom. Is celebrating a dark holiday something a child of the light should be doing? The Lord said in 2 Cor. Touch no unclean thing Aren't we supposed to be different and not conform?

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. But what does it say? And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, which he promised beforehand through his prophets in the holy Scriptures, concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among all the nations, When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place.

The Lord reigns; he is robed in majesty; the Lord is robed; he has put on strength as his belt. Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved. Your throne is established from of old; you are from everlasting. The floods have lifted up, O Lord , the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their roaring.
Mightier than the thunders of many waters, mightier than the waves of the sea, the Lord on high is mighty! Your decrees are very trustworthy; holiness befits your house, O Lord , forevermore. Therefore we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it.
However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
