I don't know, never seen it

Not Another Understanding

Stick with the King James and a strong's concordance. Can't go wrong with that.

I find only ONE Teacher worthy to help..... THE AUTHOR OF THE BIBLE!!!!
I use two Bibles, the Afrikaans OLD TRANSLATION, and the KJV. Then I ask... Lord how shall I understand if someone does not explain.... And Jesus said.... NOBODY knows the Father, save the Son, AND TO WHOMSOEVER HE SHALL REVEAL TOO!!!

So I ask Father,,,,,, PLEASE LET THE SON REVEAL TO ME TOO!!!! And HE LOVES DOING SO!!! AND I LOVE THE REVELATIONS!!!

i use 8 versions - because none is perfect and the Bible is meant for all accountable individuals to study which ever version(s) they choose but always in accordance with the normative rules of language, context and logic, i.e., the normal rules of reading we all learned in school. - that includes a comparison with the Greek / Hebrew where applicable using an interlinear and manuscript evidence - resources which are available to everyone who so chooses. Anything else - including lack of diligent study on ones own instead of memorizing what someone else has interpreted a passage to say without checking every jot and every tittle will get in the way that God has chosen to convey His Word. If an interpretation goes against those rules of language / reading violates the rules by which the Holy Spirit inspired the Bible to be written. This includes insisting on only one particular version, or one particular ritual, or one particular interpretation that one has not verified oneself. For such as this takes the understanding of God's Word outside of those who do not use such restrictions.

Show me where I am to be corrected and I'll repent.

The only manner of true understanding is to be taught by the Holy Spirit.

You do well in pointing out the Holy Spirit has inspired the writing down of those writings which truly pertain to our progress in the spirit, but the bottom line always of learning truth is only by the Holy Spirit's teaching.

Otherwise our reading and study is in vain for the written code kills. It is the Spirit Who gives life.

The green movement is the current bandwagon that I lot of Democrats are hopping on board with. The wheels will come off in the next general election in 2020. The Republicans are going to have a field day with this nutty platform.

If it were the case that no one can understand the Bible if he does not have the Holy Spirit in the sense of being saved and receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, then no one will ever understand the Bible because all of are physically born as unbelievers.

Furthermore, if this were the case that one must have the Baptism of the Holy Spirit in order to understand Scripture then God cannot hold man accountable for not understanding His Word since no one will receive the indwelling Holy Spirit unless he understands at least the gospel and believes in it but he is prevented from birth from doing so until he is saved.

I have spoken with many unbelievers who understand the Scriptures in part pretty well - WITHOUT THE BENEFIT OF BEING SAVED AND RECEIVING THE HOLY SPIRIT. But sad to say they did not believe and are not saved and did not at that time. Yet with their understanding of Scripture in their limited way, yet without the indwelling Holy Spirit.

Until the Holy Spirit entered into me, into my heart, I was never able to understand the written Word. After the event I was "given" to not only understand but to repeat teachings from the Word before reading them for the first tiime.

I was in my graduate year at the University of Illinoin, two years on the dean's list when this event took place, and instantly I received understandign of much of the Word. So furthermore, please do not teach me that I could never have known with out having red first.

Now, all who know Jesus Christ is Lord only know this by the HOly Spirit. Reading the Word does no one any good if they do not .

Do you KNOW Jesus Christ, Yeshua, is Savior and God? I do.........then we both share the same Holy Spirit...........no more furthermores, please. God bless you..

You were physically born an unbeliever with a dead human spirit without that indwelling Spirit within you. Whereupon you received the knowledge that Jesus Christ died for your sins as in Jn 3:16 - knowledge from the Bible - BEFORE YOUR RECEIVED THE SPIRIT. Whereupon you exercised a moment of faith in Him, whereupon you received eternal life and will never perish and much more which begins with the permanent indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit within your born again human spirit after you understood the gospel of your salvation and believed in Christ. Eph 1:12-14.

All mankind is physically born as unbelievers with a dead human spirit without that indwelling Spirit within. Whereupon one may receive the knowledge that Jesus Christ died for ones sins as in Jn 3:16 like the many atheists and the many non-believers did when I spoke with them over the years which I have personally witnessed over many years - knowledge from the Bible - BEFORE RECEIVING THE INDWELLING THE SPIRIT. Whereupon at the drawing of the Spirit, with the knowledge all men may receive from God's Word as in Jn 6:44, you but not others who are not so drawn came to believe in Jesus Christ. You will notice that many in the crowd in Jn chapter 6 heard and understood essentially the gospel message of Jesus being the bread of life in the sense of being the provision for eternal life for those who believe in Him. Many essentially understood His message, but few believed and remained in their unbelief - they were not so drawn by the Spirit. They did not want to understand that He actually was saying that eternal life was by faith alone in Him - His sacrifice for sins - alone. That's what Scripture teaches. Whereupon you received eternal life and will never perish and much more which begins with the permanent indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit within your born again human spirit after you understood the gospel of your salvation before you received the Spirit and believed in Christ. Eph 1:13-14 and became a born again / from above child of God, (Jn 1:12-13).
