We have too many Fundamental Baptists who apparently don’t think anything is worth fighting for. Someone once said there were four things not worth fighting for. They are the following: dress, music, who one associates with, and Bible versions.

If those things are not worth fighting over, what is? Sensual dress may not be as important as Bible versions but it surely is sinful, and it says a lot about the level of spirituality. Does God approve of music that is of the world? Who one associates with is not important? That means you may have a popular New Evangelical (or whoever you please) in your pulpit.

Whatever happened to “Come out from among them and be ye separate.”?

It is amazing that so-called Bible believers are not concerned about whether they have God’s true Word or not! If that is not worth fighting over, one wonders what we are doing! All modern versions deviate seriously from God’s Word, from the King James Bible and they teach error. They eliminate scores of verses and destroy many others with marginal notes. Imagine - Fundamental Bible believers with a phony bible!

We are admonished, we are commanded (this is not just good advice) to “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” You can’t do that with a modern version!!! May we, like the apostle Paul, be able to say, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.” II Timothy 4:7. Not some of “the faith” - all of it! Cafeteria Christianity (pick and choose) is popular but not with God.

I suppose you can show me in the Bible where Christians are commanded to "fight for" those things? IIRC, the main commandment is to LOVE, not FIGHT. That people are supposed to know Christians by their LOVE, not by what they HATE.

I recommend Westboro Baptist for you.

1 Timothy 6:12
"Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses."

How do you fight against bible translations that you dislike?

The King James Bible is simply one of many. If you really want to know what the Bible really says then I suggest you learn Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek and then read the scriptures in their original languages.

To put the KJB above all others is simply foolish as it is just as much a translation as all the others.

So true! God hasn't called us to win a popularity contest, but to stand strong for Him and the teachings of His word. How we dress, who we associate with, music, and Bible versions are so important, "the moreso as we see the day approaching."
Also, you're back! Nice to see you. :)
