Do modern translations of the Bible change verses so dramatically that they end up with a meaning that is in direct opposition to the King James Version?
Are modern translations of the Bible trying to erase the existence of God from the Old Testament?
In part four of my look into the Bible translation debate, I examine a couple of places where modern translations have changed the word(s) of a verse or passage. Do they change the meaning or are they offering some much-needed clarity? We’ll begin by looking at a troubling verse in Isaiah.
What does Paul mean when he speaks of God distributing a measure of faith to those in the body of Christ? Is faith a thing that can be measured and bottled up?
Does Isaiah tell us that God is the one who creates evil?
One of the most beloved Scriptures in the Bible is Philippians 4:13 wherein Paul encourages His readers that all things are possible through Christ who strengthens him. But are we reading the verse the way Paul intended it to be read?
Did Jesus descend into Hell to defeat death? It’s a widely held belief, however, there might not be as much Biblical evidence to support it than we at first thought.
A number of skeptics have claimed that there is evidence to suggest that Jesus really wasn’t divine, such as His cry of abandonment on the cross. Did Jesus cry out in despair or was there something more?
Does the use of apologetics and scholarship contradict the doctrine of the sufficiency of Scripture? Are critics justified in using it to avoid arguments?
Does Paul command celibacy in 1 Corinthians 7? How should believers today read this passage?
As we continue our look at this pressing objection I’ll examine how another popular variant of the creation account stands with what I proposed in the first instalment. We’ll also examine a couple of objections.
Since religious skepticism started gaining traction critics have been harsh on the Biblical texts and their scientific findings. But are they reading the texts the way the authors intended them to be read?
For a lot of Christians, the topic of judging is an oft-avoided subject. Some believe we have no right to judge another at all and ignore moral wrongdoing. But is that what Jesus is really advocating?
Does Paul tell us of two Gods? Did one live in the Old Testament and die in the New?
Following a short break from apologetics, I stumbled across a rather strange group that claims the apostle Paul was in opposition to the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. Let’s see if they have anything of substance to say.
