 Re: Council on Foreign Relations

Stever posts:

Who is this group----The Council on Foreign Relations? Every President, other than Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush has been a memeber since it started in 1921.

Council on Foreign Relations, The Harold Pratt House, 58 East 68th Street, New York NY 10021, Tel: 212-434-9400, Fax: 212-861-1789.

Membership Roster. 2004.

The Council on Foreign Relations has been the most powerful private organization in U.S. foreign policy since it began in 1921. While priding itself on non-partisanship and on recent efforts to recruit minorities, women, and youth (under 35), CFR's 4,200 members mainly reflect the resources needed by the ruling class to maintain their power. Don't call them if you want to join; they call you. And don't wait for a call unless you have big money, national security expertise, CIA experience, a political constituency, or clout with the media. CFR publishes the prestigious journal "Foreign Affairs" as well as a number of books and reports. Another major activity is to organize closed meetings for their members with assorted world leaders. Everyone feels free to share views and information about current world events, primarily because CFR has strict confidentiality rules and keeps its records locked up for 25 years.

This is a list of only the A's in the alphabet:

 Re:

anybody know what happened to philologos?

And does anyone have an opinion on the ESV? I can't seem to find what manuscripts they used...

 Re:

Ah, I see. Thanks.

By the way, I found what I was looking for about the ESV, [url=https://www.sermonindex.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic_id=6111&forum=35&start=0&viewmode=flat&order=0]here[/url], and [url=https://www.sermonindex.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?viewmode=flat&order=0&topic_id=1986&forum=36&post_id=&refresh=Go]here[/url]

ESV relies heaviliy on the western texts. It really is a shame :-( Why can't somebody make a new translation off the byzantine texts?!!?

 Re:

Personally... I wish they would. I'm in no way opposed to that, but so far no one has.

In the meantime tho, if people would stop believing the lie that KJV is just to hard to understand, they may realize that we do have an understandable and readable translation of the Byzantine texts.

I'm in complete agreement with you. However, I don't know... do you hang out with youth very often? In specific, those who are poorly educated? I am friends with several high schoolers who honestly are just not smart at all.

I have a feeling it is very easy to sit back with the intelligent King James reading church crowd and talk about how TV has destroyed my generations literacy (which is somewhat true), and how education has gone downhill (also true).

But the thing is, this is just sitting on our high horses, looking down on the poor and rejected, and SNUBBING THEM. I am involved with some inner city missions, ok... And the problem with this mentality of, "Hand them a King James Bible, and if they really love God(and the Scriptures), they will read it and learn olde English" is that we are not going to my generation WHERE THEY ARE AT.

I got news for these folks, Jesus went to the people who did not study the Scripture, he went to the uneducated, outcasts, the blind, the lepers, the thieves and the whores! He let the religious pharisees do their own thing for the most part.

That's why I wish we had a newer translation than the King James that is based on the Byzantine texts, in modern English.

Perhaps it's best to just give these kids the NKJV Bible(or nasb or esv... of course, avoid niv and the message at all costs), and then let them move up to the KJV, unless a better translation comes out someday.

This is my stance anyways, after reading these forums: "Currently using the KJV until I can find something better."

Adam

Thr Council on Foreign Relations is behind the erasing of our borders between Canada and Mexico by 2010, and I wanted you to know who they were. Basically anyone that is anyone in Washington D.C., our major News and Television Networks, Major Journalists; etc. etc. etc. are members of this organization.

 Re:

Stever reposts to Combat_Chuck in regards to supplying the young, new believers who aren't well educated, with an NIV Bible until they are more mature.

My first response proceeded from my flesh (at the very least), from my human nature, from my human reasoning---all are full of error. All are found in the blood of Adam, which fills each of our veins with our inherited sin nature.

[b]TO BE CLEAR, I WITHDRAW MY PREVIOUS RESPONSE TO COMBAT_CHUCK, AND REPLACE IT WITH WHAT APPEARS BELOW:[/b]

The Holy Spirit has convicted me of my error, of my sin, in suggesting that the NIV would be acceptable for new believers who are young and or uneducated and cannot read well.

The King James ranks easier to read and easier to understand than the NIV or any of the other newer versions.

Many Christians prefer the new versions because they are under the illusion that they are easier to read than the King James Version. However, the KJV ranks actually easier than the new versions in 23 out of 26 comparisons on the Flesch-Kincaid grade level indicator [5th grade reading level,] and in most verses is easier for children to read. In most passages the new versions have replaced simple, one-syllable words from the KJV with more complex multi-syllable words. This was done because the new perversions are copyrighted which the KJV is NOT. Copyright laws require the publishers to make substantial changes in text from the KJV.

Examples:
NIV, NAS, NLT, NKJ, RSV – All change new to 'unshrunk' in Mark 2:21
The variety of word uses amongst all the new versions in some of the following verses is a good example of 'Scripture du jour' for those who want to make the Word fit their own idea of what God intended to say. Mat. 8:11, Lk. 5:29, Mat. 11:26, Lk. 10:21, Jn. 7:8, Acts 11:24,26, Col. 2:13, 2 Thes. 2:3, Acts 25:20, Acts 27:30, Acts 19:23.

Over 6,000 changes and deletions have been executed by the newer versions, there is no limit to the number of places that the text of the King James Version has been corrupted by them. I have previously posted many of them on the thread by Philologos-“Why would anyone still read the King James Bible?” Because of copyright laws, the new versions can never use as simple words as the King James Version.

Some readers object to the KJV's use of archaic words like thee, thou, thine, and ye. However, these words were used [even after they had begun to cease from English conversational use,] to convey the singularity or plurality of the person[s] addressed. This is conveyed in the Greek and Hebrew, but is not possible using only the common English pronouns "you" or "your". When Jesus said to the Pharisees in John 8:44, "ye are of your father the devil" we know from the KJV that he was speaking to the entire group, not just one individual. Similarly, in the KJV the singular terms the and thou means 'you alone,' and thine means 'yours alone [for Thine is the kingdom" – Matt. 6:13.]

These distinctions from the original manuscripts are lost in the newer versions. The few problems with other archaic terms used in the KJV such as suffer [permit,] prevent [precede,] etc, can be easily overcome with a brief education in the definitions and usage of these terms.

NOTE: A copy of Noah Webster's 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language is a perfect companion to the serious reader of the Word of God.

To understand the very serious business of keeping the Word of God pure and inerrant, just as it is promised, it would be most helpful for the reader to take time to read the message to the readers of the King James Version who worked so faithfully and diligently to keep it perfect.

God takes His Word very seriously. He has even magnified His Word above His name [Ps 138:2,] and expects His children to tremble at his word [Isaiah 66:5.] Despite all of Satan's efforts to destroy it, God has preserved His Word. The greatest group of Bible and language scholars ever assembled rejected the corrupt Alexandrine Text available to them, and following the traditional text which God preserved through the ages, produced the King James Version. In light of the Satanically inspired deletions and substitutions made in the new versions, there is no excuse for any Christian who has been presented with this information to continue using any of the new versions of God's Holy Word, which has been preserved for us only in the Authorized King James Version.

Please, if you want to denigrate or criticize the above studies, include source of your contradictory information.


God Bless
