From 11 Childhood Vaccines in 1986 to 53 in 2017 — Can You Guess Why?

A bombshell video snippet from Del Bigtree dares to ask the all-important question: Why have the number of vaccines given to children skyrocketed over the last three decades?

The answer may shock you. In 1986, Congress passed a law granting legal immunity to vaccine manufacturer, but only for vaccines on the childhood immunization schedule.

Since then, vaccine makers have worked to push as many vaccines as possible onto that schedule for the sole purpose of enjoying legal immunity from lawsuits for faulty products and vaccine damage.

Thus, children have become a “dumping ground” for faulty vaccines that are manufactured with near-zero quality control measures because forcing those vaccines onto the childhood immunization schedule grants Big Pharma corporations legal immunity from lawsuits.

The skyrocketing number of vaccines now given to children, in other words, has nothing to do with science or medicine. It has everything to do with maximizing profits and shielding vaccine manufacturers from lawsuits for all the millions of children their products continue to maim and kill.

Del Bigtree explains more in this Brighteon video that has been banned across all the tech giants and social media sites.

California school district says parents can’t pull kids from new LGBT sex ed

NEWS FAMILY, FREEDOM, HOMOSEXUALITY, POLITICS – U.S.
Thu Apr 19, 2018 – 1:28 pm EST

ORANGE COUNTY, California, April 19, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – California is about to implement new abortion- and homosexuality-promoting sex education lessons, and one school district has told parents they have no choice but to expose their children to them.

California enacted the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015, but only now are its controversial provisions starting to take effect in classrooms. Under the auspices of health, the law says it will equip students to develop “healthy attitudes” on “gender [and] sexual orientation,” among other things. It also says it will inform students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods,” and facilitate “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.”

RedState contributor Kira Davis, a resident of Orange County, California, warns that among the teaching materials approved for use under this law are a study guide for the transgender children’s book I Am Jazz, as well as a “Sexual Health Toolkit.”

This “toolkit,” funded in part by the George Soros-connected Tides Center, offers kids tips on using sex toys and anal lubricant. It defines “anal intercourse,” “phone sex,” and more as “common sexual behaviors.” It teaches that “abstinence” and “virginity” can mean engaging in a variety of sexual activities, but stopping short of intercourse.

“What if you don’t have time or money to buy sex toys?” the guide asks on page C-51. “Cucumbers, carrots, and bananas (with the peel) make great dildos. Just remember to use a condom!”

It teaches that one of the “cons” of abstaining from all sexual activity is that it “requires motivation, self-control and communication from both partners.”

The “toolkit” lists as resources Planned Parenthood and the radically pro-homosexual and pro-abortion group Advocates for Youth.

The law also mandates that lessons and materials “affirmatively recognize” varying sexual orientations, and that they “be inclusive of same-sex relationships.” Instruction must take a positive view of gender confusion, and explore “the harm of negative gender stereotypes.”

Davis notes that the California Healthy Youth Act expressly protects parents’ rights to “excuse their children from participation” in sex education courses without penalty of any kind, because “parents and guardians have the ultimate responsibility for imparting values regarding human sexuality to their children.”

The Orange County school district apparently interprets this differently.

In a memo dated March 29 to the Orange County Board of Education, Orange County Department of Education general counsel Ronald Wenkart says that the law’s opt-out provision “does not apply to instruction, materials, or programming that discusses gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, discrimination, harassment, bullying, intimidation, relationships, or family and does not discuss human reproductive organs.”

Parents who disagree with the state’s LGBT positions “may not excuse their children from this instruction,” Wenkart continues. He then suggests that parents still having the right to “advise their children that they disagree with” such lessons compensates for this restriction.

He also cites judicial precedent to claim that “parents do not have a constitutional right to excuse their children from portions of the school curriculum that they find objectionable.”

Heidi St. John, an author and speaker who covers faith, motherhood, and homeschooling as The Busy Mom, forcefully spoke out Wednesday against the memo.

“The Orange County Department of Education feels it is their right to GIVE YOU PERMISSION TO DISAGREE WITH THEM,” she wrote on Facebook. “These are our children! They do not belong to the schools.”

St. John advises California parents to contact their local school boards and Democratic Assemblywoman Shirley Weber, the law’s author, and to pull their children out of schools that force LGBT lessons on children.

She also urges parents to participate in the Sex Ed Sit Out on April 23, an event spanning the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia in which parents pull their children out of school for the day in protest of radical sex education programs.

RedState’s Davis has similar advice.

“Make noise. Lots and lots and lots of noise,” she writes. “When [lawmakers’] constituents get cranky, they pay attention…and so few people actually call and write anymore that just a few hundred voices go a very long way to making your representative and governor think twice about proceeding with something that seems unpopular.”

Davis also stresses that parents who pull their children out ensure the school does not record it as an excused absence.

“The reason your public school demands you call to excuse a child’s absence is because they lose state and federal dollars on every unexcused absence,” she writes. “If you really want to make an impact, hit them where it hurts.”

What Does it Mean to Pray in Jesus’ Name?

John 14:13-14And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

Some misapply this verse, thinking that “in Jesus’ name” is much like a magic formula. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Praying in Jesus’ name means praying with His authority and asking God the Father to act upon our prayers because we come in the name of His Son, Jesus. Praying in Jesus’ name means praying in line with the will of God (1 John 5:14-15).

Praying and meditating through the names of Jesus enhance worship, promote spiritual growth, and deepen our intimacy with Jesus.

There are some 200 names and titles of Christ found in the Bible. I selected some of the more prominent ones as examples of how we may deepen our understanding and relationship with Jesus.

When you are reading the Bible and come across one of Jesus’ names, pause for a moment and draw a mental image of Jesus enhancing that particular name. Then, personally interact with that name and be blessed.

Jesus: (Matthew 1:21; Luke 2:11; John 6:35; 6:48)

Picture yourself carrying a huge bag of sins. You’re stumbling, falling, thirsting, and growing weaker by the moment. Sin is mercilessly driving you down into the dirt. Then, Jesus approaches out of nowhere. Imagine him putting his arms around you and loving you. “If you’d like,” he says, “I’ll carry that big bag for you.” The relief is incredible. Sins are gone and a new life begins.

Thank you, Jesus, for forgiving my sins and sacrificing your life on the cross for me. Amen

Bread: (Luke 4:8; John 6:35, 48)
And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. . . . I am that bread of life.

He’s preached all day. It’s getting late. Imagine 5,000 hungry people with nothing to eat. Jesus says to his disciples, “Feed them.” Peter says, “But, there’s no grocery store in sight!
Andrew brings him five small pieces of bread and two small fish.
Now watch carefully. Jesus rubs his hands together and a piece of bread appears. He rubs his hands again and more bread appears. Who planted the seeds? No one. Who watered the crops? Who harvested the grain? Who pounded out the flour? Who heated the oven? No one.

How about the fish? Who caught the fish? No one. They were never caught. Who brought charcoal? No one. Jesus was creating a Galilean delicacy. These fish were about 103 mm (5 inches) long with a pickle-type relish for moisture. He’s not just creating fish. He’s making pickles!

As bread sustains life in the flesh, Jesus is the Bread that sustains life in the spirit.

Jesus, I’m hungry. Feed me. Ask Savior bread of life. Amen.

King of kings and Lord of lords: (1 Timothy 6:15; Revelation 19:16)

Imagine Jesus sitting on a throne surrounded by a host of people from all around the world. All are worshiping Jesus Christ. You kneel and declare with them: “Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father.

Then, suddenly, Jesus is standing right with you. You exclaim: “I’ll never turn back, wherever you lead I’ll go.”

Lord, make me a spiritual father or mother; I don’t care what it costs.

Light of the World: (John 8:12)

You enter Carlsbad caverns with your tour guide. Floodlights reveal multicolored stalactites and stalagmites hanging from the ceiling and growing from the ground. Drip, drip goes the water. “Do you want to see dark like you’ve never seen it before?” He turns off his flashlight. “It’s so dark you can taste it.” He turns on his flashlight. Instinctively, you turn toward the light.

It’s a dark world out there. Think about how he brought you into the light. Did it happen in a moment of decisive commitment? Or was your salvation a process that occurred over time?

Some are still in darkness. Paul says that satan has blinded the eyes of unbelievers so that they cannot see the glorious light.

Think of a friend or two who need Jesus. Pray that the Holy Spirit opens the eyes of your friends so they can see the light.

Thanks for bringing my friends and me into the Light. Amen.

The Word of God: (John 1:1-4; 1 John 5:7-8)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. . . . All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

The Greek word, “logos,” is translated in English as, “word.” The “logos” is a Greek philosophical term referring to the “unrevealed wisdom of God.

Jesus is the Word of God. John tells us that at a point in time, the unrevealed wisdom of God put on a body so he could dwell with us.

John also tells us that at a point before time Jesus created the universe. Pictured Jesus standing on the edge of nothingness and tossing 100 billion stars into existence. In addition, 1,000 billion planets now populate the universe.

Lord, I praise you because with all the things you have going on today in the universe, you have time for me. Amen

Good Shepherd: (John 10:11, 14)

In Bible times, a good shepherd was willing to risk his own life to protect his sheep from predators. Jesus laid down His life for His sheep, and He cares for and nurtures and feeds us.
The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want.” David imagined himself to be a sheep looking up at his shepherd. Think of yourself as a little lamb looking up at your Shepherd. He’s looking down at you with such love and compassion. Sheep need to be led, not driven. Think of Jesus the last time he took you through the valley of the shadow of death and all was well. Imagine yourself being secure in the arms of Jesus.
But there’s more to your Shepherd. Revelation shows us Jesus as a bleeding lamb slain on the altar for our sin.

The Lord is my shepherd He’s all I want.

2 Timothy 2:15 “Study”, “be diligent” or “do your best”?

2 Timothy 2:15 KJB – “STUDY to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

NKJV (ESV, NASB) – “BE DILIGENT to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Jehovah Witness New World Translation – “DO YOUR UTMOST to present yourself to God, a workman with nothing to be ashamed of.”

Catholic St. Joseph New American bible 1970 – “TRY HARD to make yourself worthy of God’s approval, a workman who has no cause to be ashamed.”

Bible critic Reese Currie again reveals his profound ignorance. He writes: “2 Timothy 2:15 
KJV: Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

NKJV: Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

I was really hoping this one would come up, as it shows once again that KJV Onlyists generally have no idea what their own Bible is saying to them because they do not understand 1611 English. One of the meanings of the word “study” is to “take pains to achieve”; to be diligent. It is an excellent example of how the KJV has imprecise renderings that could be understood improperly, especially to those with poor levels of literacy, like those unfortunates who send me e-mails saying, “Only the KJV 1611 tells you to study your Bible!!!!!” The Greek word spoudazo literally means “to use speed” but figuratively means “to make effort.” It simply means to be diligent.” (End of Reese’s Pieces criticism)”

Bible correctors claim the King James Bible is wrong or incorrect when it says “STUDY…rightly dividing the word of truth.” They tell us it should be translated in this place as “be diligent” or “do your best” or “make every effort”.

Greek words as well as English words can have very different meanings depending on the context. Admittedly, the Greek word spoudazo can mean “to endeavor”, “to be diligent”, “to labor” or even “to be hasty” but it also has the meaning of “to STUDY something with great care”.

So even if you thought that “study” should be “be diligent”, what are you to be diligent in? – the answer is in the verse – “rightly dividing the word of truth”. That’s why contextually it makes perfect sense to translate the word as “study”. In fact, this is THE ONLY TIME the King James Bible translated this word as STUDY; and they got it right!

There is another Greek word that is used in 1 Thessalonians 4:11 where the KJB (and many others as well) tells us: “And that ye STUDY to be quiet, and to do your own business, as we commanded you” Here the Greek word used is “philotimeomai“, a completely different word than the one used in 2 Timothy 2:15. The English word “study” has a couple of different meanings, as any good dictionary will tell you.

Webster’s Dictionary 1828 – Study

STUDY, verb intransitive [Latin]
1. To fix the mind closely upon a subject; to muse; to dwell upon in thought.
I found a moral first, and then studied for a fable.
2. To apply the mind to books. He studies eight hours in the day.
3. TO ENDEAVOR DILIGENTLY.
That ye study to be quiet and do your own business. 1 Thessalonians 4:11

Wiktionary

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/study

Verb

1. (usually academic) To revise materials already learned in order to make sure one does not forget them, usually in preparation for an examination. Students are expected to start studying for final exams in March.
I need to study my biology notes.

2. (academic) To take a course or courses on a subject. I study medicine at the university.

3. To acquire knowledge on a subject. Biologists study living things.

4. To look at minutely. He studied the map in preparation for the hike.

5. To fix the mind closely upon a subject; to dwell upon anything in thought; to muse; to ponder.

6 TO ENDEAVOR DILIGENTLY; TO BE ZEALOUS

In 1 Thessalonians 4:11 “STUDY to be quiet” means “to endeavor diligently to do something”. Admittedly, it sounds a bit archaic to modern ears, but it is a perfectly accurate use of the English word “to study”. Not only does the King James Bible tell us to “STUDY to be quiet” in 1 Thessalonians 4:11 but so also do Tyndale 1534, Coverdale 1535, The Great Bible 1540, Matthew’s Bible 1549, the Bishops’ Bible 1568, the Geneva Bible 1587, the Beza N.T. 1599, the Mace N.T. 1729, Wesley’s N.T. 1755, Thomas Haweis N.T. 1795, Webster’s Bible 1833, the Living Oracles 1835, the Pickering N.T. 1840, the Longman Version 1841, The Commonly Received Version 1851, the Boothroyd Bible 1853, The Revised N.T. 1862, The American Bible Union N.T. 1865, Noyes Translation 1869, The Alford New Testament 1870, Young’s literal 1898, the Revised Version 1885, the Dillard N.T. 1885, the American Standard Version 1901, the Clarke N.T. 1913, The Word of Yah 1993, the 21st Century KJV 1994, The Revised Webster Bible 1995, The Third Millennium Bible 1998, God’s First Truth 1999 – “that you STUDY to be quiet”, The Sacred Scriptures Family of Yah 2001, The Tomson New Testament 2002, The Evidence Bible 2003, The Revised Geneva Bible 2005, the Bond Slave Version 2009, The Hebraic Transliteration Scripture 2010, The Interlinear Hebrew-Greek Scriptures 2012 (Mebust) – “and that you STUDY to be quiet”.

The word spoudazo in Greek – 2 Timothy 2:15

I have a modern Greek dictionary that has nothing to do with the Bible at all. It is like a Spanish/English- English/Spanish dictionary you buy in the stores. It is Divry’s Modern English-Greek and Greek-English Desk Dictionary. If you look up the English word “study” as a noun you find spoudee and the verb form, to study, is speudazo. It MEANS TO STUDY! And this is in modern Greek, not 1611 Greek.

Also the well known lexicon of Liddell & Scott 17th edition 1887, on page 1630 lists one of the meanings of spoudazo as ‘TO STUDY’. The noun form means ‘study’ and another noun form spoudastees means ‘A STUDENT’!

If you do not know Greek and want to verify this for yourself simply go to this online Greek-English Dictionary;

http://www.kypros.org/cgi-bin/lexicon/

and do one of two things: 1. type the word spoudazo in the Greek to English side or 2. type in the word “study” on the English to Greek side and see what result you get. You don’t have to have a seminary degree to do that.

STUDY

Not only does the KJB translate this word as STUDY but so also do Tyndale 1525, Coverdale 1535, the Great Bible 1540 – ” STUDY to shewe thy selfe laudable vnto God, a workman”, Matthew’s Bible 1549 – “STUDYE to shewe thy selfe laudable vnto God a workeman”, the Bishops’ Bible 1568, the Geneva Bible 1587 – “STUDIE to shewe thy selfe approued veto God”, the Beza New Testament 1599, the Douay Rheims version 1610, The Bill Bible 1671, Whiston’s Primitive New Testament 1745, The Thompson Bible 1808, The Improved N.T. 1809, The Revised Translation 1815, the Thomson N.T. 1816, Kneeland N.T. 1823, Webster’s 1833 translation, The Pickering N.T. 1840, The Longman Version 1841, The Hewett N.T. 1850 – “carefully study”, The Commonly Received Version 1851, Murdock’s Translation 1852 of the Syriac text – ” And STUDY to present thyself before God”, The Boothroyd Bible 1853, The Calvin Version 1856, The Kendrick N.T. 1862, The Revised N.T. 1862, Noyles Translation 1869, The Alford New Testament 1870, The Revised English Bible 1877, The Dillard N.T. 1885, Godbey New Testament 1902 – “STUDY to present yourself to God approved”, The Clarke N.T. 1913, the Amplified Version 1987 – “STUDY and be eager and do your utmost to present yourself to God approved”, Green’s interlinear and his Modern KJV – Earnestly STUDY to present yourself approved to God”, the KJV 21st Century Version 1994, The Revised Geneva Bible 2005, the Hebraic Roots Bible 2012, the Urim-Thummin Version 2001, the Third Millennium Bible 1998 and the English Jubilee Bible 2010 – “STUDY”.

Other English Bibles that also read STUDY are The Word of Yah 1993, God’s First Truth 1999, The Tomson New Testament 2002, The Evidence Bible 2003, Bond Slave Version 2009, the Hebraic Transliteration Scripture 2010, The Conservative Bible 2010 – “ACT AS A STUDENT of God”, and The Holy Bible, Modern English Version 2014 – “STUDY to show yourself approved by God, a workman who need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. The Far Above All Translation 2011 reads: “BE STUDIOUS to present yourself approved to God” The Work of God’s Children Illustrated Bible 2011 says: “Carefully STUDY to present yourself approved unto God”

FOREIGN LANGUAGE BIBLES

The Italian Diodati 1602 and the Nuova Diodati 1991, and the 1927 Italian Rivudeta have “study” spelled ‘studiati’. “STUDIATI di presentar te stesso approvato a Dio…”

The French Martin 1744 also reads like the King James Bible with: “ETUDIE-toi de te rendre approuvé à Dieu

Likewise the 2010 Reina Valera Gomez Spanish bible says: “ESTUDIA con diligencia para presentarte a Dios aprobado, como obrero que no tiene de qué avergonzarse, que traza bien la palabra de verdad.” = “STUDY with diligence in order to present yourself approved to God…”
And the 2014 Romanian Fidela Bible actually reads: “STUDIAZA scripturile să te arăţi tu însuţi aprobat lii Dumnezeu” = “STUDY the Scriptures to show yourself approved of God”

Even the earlier Douay-Rheims Catholic bible 1582 had “study” – “Carefully STUDY to present thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.”

But of course the more modern ones like the St. Joseph New American Bible 1970 and the New Jerusalem Bible 1985 match the modern Vatican Versions like the ESV, NIV, NASB.

The New Jerusalem Bible says “make every effort to present yourself before God as a proven worker” while the St. Joseph says: “Try hard to make yourself worthy of God’s approval”!!!

KJB – “STUDY to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman”

NIV – “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved”

J.B. Phillips N.T. 1962 – “Concentrate on winning God’s approval”

Lexham Bible 2012 – “Make every effort to present yourself approved to God.”

ESV – “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved”

NASB – “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman”

NKJV – “Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker”

NET – ” Make every effort to present yourself before God as a proven worker”

Matthew Henry comments on this verse saying: “Study to show thyself approved unto God, 2 Timothy 2:15. Observe, The care of ministers must be to approve themselves unto God, to be accepted of him, and to show that they are so approved unto God. In order thereunto, there must be constant care and industry: STUDY to show thyself such a one, a workman that needs not be ashamed. Ministers must be workmen; they have work to do, and they must take pains in it. Workmen that are unskilful, or unfaithful, or lazy, have need to be ashamed; but those who mind their business, and keep to their work, are workmen that need not be ashamed. And what is their work? It is rightly to divide the word of truth. Not to invent a new gospel, but rightly to divide the gospel that is committed to their trust. Observe here, 1. The word which ministers preach is the word of truth, for the author of it is the God of truth. 2. It requires great wisdom, STUDY, and care, to divide this word of truth rightly; Timothy must study in order to do this well.

The Pulpit Commentary – “The A.V. “study,” if we give it its proper force, as in the Latin studeo, studium, studiosus, expresses the sense of σπούδασον exactly.

To me the difference is the new versions with their “do your best” or “be diligent to present yourself to God as one approved” seem to imply a lot of self effort to gain approval, whereas the King James Bible seems to be saying ‘study so you can be sure you have the right doctrines God has revealed.’

Perhaps the reason the Every Man For Himself Bible Versionists prefer “do your best”, “work hard”, “be diligent” etc. is due to a fundamental difference in one’s approach to God’s words!

Maybe those who do not believe that any Bible in any language is or ever was the preserved, inspired and infallible words of God feel they need to gear up for a rigorous Bible reconstruction project, since they have no Bible they can trust completely.

They must work hard, sweat nails to ferret out every Greek nuance, every learned scholar’s conjecture.

They first consult 50 different versions, Cardinal Martini, James White, R.C. Sproul, Dan Wallace, then consult Thayer, Kittel, Driver; look for some fragment from an Egyptian garbage DUMP, Ugaritic tablet, Dead Sea scroll etc. – anything that could aid the never ending search for what God possibly, maybe, might have said so as to reach a tentative idea on the meaning of the text.

Or maybe they just want a translation that “feels right” to them. The “every man did that which was right in his own eyes” syndrome.

In contrast to this, the Bible Believer is blessed to have God’s INERRANT PRESERVED wordS in the King James Bible. They feed upon and study God’s infallible words and rejoice in them as Jeremiah of old who said: “Thy words were found and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.” (Jeremiah 15:16)

The King James Bible believers don’t try to correct it, or alter it or change it to fit the passing fads of modern “scholarship”. The Bible Believer praises God that He has providentially preserved His words so we can read them today in the 17th century English of the King James Holy Bible, the only Bible seriously believed by thousands of living saints (*I am one of them) to be the very words of the living God.

I believe the modern version editors who change this word here to something like “be diligent” or “do your best” or “make every effort”, have neglected the context of the verse and made a change only for the sake of changing things to get their copyrights, make money, and to undermine the Christian’s faith in an inerrant Bible.

Even the secular world has noted that those who actually READ their Bibles are those who read and study the King James Bible, as this article from USA Today called ‘Bible Readers Prefer the King James Version’ shows.

http://www.usatoday.com/news/religion/2011-04-21-king-james-bible.htm

“for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.” Luke 16:8

“RIGHTLY DIVIDING the word of truth”

Some bible critics have further criticized the King James Bible in this verse by telling us that “rightly dividing” is a wrong translation. One such man is pastor John Carpenter, who is one of the new Vatican Version users. The ESV has “rightly handling the word of truth”. The NASB says: “accurately handling the word of truth” and the NIV has: “who correctly handles the word of truth.”

Agreeing with the King James Bible’s “rightly dividing the word of truth” are Tyndale 1534, Coverdale 1535, the Great Bible 1540, Matthew’s Bible 1549, the Bishops’ Bible 1568, the Geneva Bible 1587, the Beza New Testament 1599 – “dividing the word of truth aright”, the Bills Bible 1671, Whiston’s Primitive N.T. 1745, the Worsely Version 1770, Wesley’s N.T. 1755, The Clarke N.T. 1795, Thomas Haweis N.T. 1795, the Newcome N.T. 1796, the Revised Translation 1815, the Wakefield N.T. 1820, the Kneeland N.T. 1823, the Family Paraphrase Bible 1831, the Dickinson N.T. 1833, Webster’s Translation 1833, The Living Oracles 1835, the Pickering N.T. 1840, the Longman Version 1841, the Hammond N.T. 1845, the Hussey N.T. 1845, the Morgan N.T. 1848, the Commonly Received Version 1851, the Boothroyd Bible 1853, the Calvin Version 1856, the Sawyer N.T. 1858, The Revised N.T. 1862, The American Bible Union N.T. 1865, The Emphatic Diaglott Bible 1865, The Noyes Translation 1869, The Davidson N.T. 1876, The Smith Bible 1876, The Revised English Bible 1877, The Sharpe Bible 1883, The Dillard N.T. 1885, The New Covenant N.T. 1888, Darby 1890, The New Dispensation N.T. 1897, Young’s translation 1898, the Godbey N.T. 1902, The Worrell N.T. 1904, The Coptic Version 1905, The Clarke N.T. 1913, The Improved Bible 1913, The Sinaitic N.T. 1918, The Montgomery N.T. 1924, the NKJV 1982, The Recovery N.T. 1985, The Amplified Bible 1987, The Word of Yah 1993, The 21st Century KJV 1994, the Lawrie Translation 1998, The Third Millennium Bible 1998, God’s First Truth 1999, The Tomson N.T. 2002, The Apostolic Polyglott Bible 2003, The Evidence Bible 2003, Green’s Literal 2005, The Mebust Bible 2007, The Non-Ecclesiastical N.T. 2008, the Bond Slave Version 2009, The Faithful N.T. 2009, the Hebrew Transliteration Scripture 2010, The Jubilee Bible 2010, Holy Scriptures VW Edition 2010, The Disciples’ Literal N.T. 2011, The Concordant Version 2012, The Hebraic Roots Bible 2012, The English Majority Text 2013, The Far Above All Translation 2014, The Mitchell N.T. 2014, and the Modern English Version 2014 all say “RIGHTLY DIVIDING the word of truth.”

The King James Bible is ALWAYS right. Get used to it!

10 Things You Need to Know about the Unforgivable Sin

People regularly ask is, ‘Can I commit a sin that God cannot forgive?’

According to Jesus, there is one sin a person can do for which there is no forgiveness or pardon either in this age or in the age to come: blaspheming against the Holy Spirit. But what does it mean to blaspheme the Holy Spirit?”

Dr. David Jeremiah explains how the only way to understand these words is by seeing them within the context of the whole passage.

Here are 10 things you need to know about the “unforgivable sin” or “unpardonable sin”.

1. Jesus Mentions It In The Gospel Of Mark.
Jesus addressed the topic in Mark 3:20-30, a passage that ends with these words: “Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:” (Mark 3:28-29).

This is the verse that gets quoted whenever Christians address this issue. But the passage doesn’t stop there.

2. To correctly understand it, you need to look at the very last phrase.
Take a look again at Jesus’ finishing statement in verses 28-30: “Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation: 30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.”

This paragraph has been the source of great misunderstandings in Christendom. To arrive at the correct interpretation, we have to begin with the last phrase, which explains why Jesus made this statement. He gave this teaching because His foes were accusing Him of having an unclean spirit (verse 22). Our Lord was telling them, in essence, ‘There is a sin that you are on the verge of committing. You should be very careful, because you’re about to do something for which there is no forgiveness.’

3. It’s Not A Thoughtless Mistake.
Let me take a moment and say the unforgivable sin isn’t something that someone commits randomly. The scribes who came from Jerusalem didn’t just do this on a whim. If you follow the references to these scribes throughout the book of Mark you’ll see there is a progression to their unbelief. They were initially curious about Jesus and His ministry. Then they had questions. In time, they grew indifferent; but then their indifference changed into a malicious attitude that became so hateful and vengeful that it ultimately nailed Jesus Christ to the cross.

4. There is a Greek verb that proves it’s not an instant reaction.
In our story in Mark 3, there’s an interesting fact that’s only apparent in the Greek New Testament. According to verse 22, the scribes said, “He hath Beelzebub…” The verb form for “said” is in the imperfect tense. It can be translated as, “They kept on saying”. It wasn’t just a matter of a sudden thoughtless word or an instant reaction. Their words represented a hardened attitude and an embittered and impenitent heart.

5. It shows us that progressive rejection can be the most dangerous.
When God convicts us of sin and presents us with the Gospel, it’s dangerous to neglect it, especially if our procrastination becomes chronic. We resist and resist and resist. After a while, we can become so hard-hearted and sin-hardened that we grow calloused of soul. Our ears can’t receive the truth. Our minds shake off the conviction of the Spirit. We become cynical of conscience. Although the grace of God is still available to us, we push away from it.

6. Knowing the Word of God isn’t enough.
These scribes had become Jesus-resistant because of the time-lapsed attitudes of their own evil hearts. It’s tragic, for these scribes had devoted their lives to copying the Word of God. Note the relationship between the words scribe and scribble. These men had copied and recopied the Old Testament. Every day they copied an ancient Scripture scroll by hand.

They had copied Isaiah 53, about the Suffering Servant. They had copied Psalm 22, about the death of the Messiah. They knew Micah 5 and the prophecy of our Lord’s birth. Yet their hearts had become so hardened they couldn’t receive His grace when it arrived in the person of Jesus.

7. We can be hardened to spiritual truth by living in the middle of it.
We can go to church and read the Bible so much that the words no longer register with us. The scribes had come to the place where they were so familiar with religious things that when the Son of God showed up, they didn’t know who He was and they accused Him of being from satan.

8. The unforgivable sin is denying the deity of Christ.
By ascribing the miracles of Jesus to satan, the religious leaders were denying the deity of Jesus Christ. They were saying He could not be God. Yet by His miracles He was showing Himself to be nothing and no one less than God. Only God Himself could do what He had done. His followers believed in His deity.

9. Rejecting the Holy Spirit and rejecting the deity of Christ are connected.
It’s the Holy Spirit who witnesses to the deity of Christ in our world today.

So when you refuse to accept the ministry of the Holy Spirit or you ascribe His ministry to satan, you give up the final opportunity to be saved. You must believe in Jesus as the Son of God. We have to accept the witness of the Holy Spirit and act upon the conviction He brings.

10. If you’re worried that you may have committed a sin God will not forgive…you’ve likely not committed this sin.
The thought of an unforgivable sin has haunted sensitive people in every Christian century, and maybe it has haunted you. I want to be clear in saying that if you’re bothered in your spirit that you may have committed a sin God will not forgive, the very fact that you have anxiety over that is evidence you’ve not committed the sin. If He is still working in your heart, it’s not possible to have committed the unpardonable sin. The very fact that you’re reading this article is a tremendous indication you’ve not committed the unforgivable sin described in the Gospel of Mark.

In summation, this is the “unpardonable sin“:

In its essence, the unforgivable sin is hardening your heart against God and repeatedly refusing to respond to His entreaties to your soul. By continuing to resist and reject the Lord, you build calluses on your soul until the conviction of the Spirit of God no longer registers on your heart. Over a period of time you become hardened. You hear the Word of God and it makes no impact on you. If you die in that condition, there’s no further forgiveness available. For those who reject Jesus Christ, there’s no forgiveness anywhere else, anytime, either in this world or the next. He died for you, and if you reject that, there’s no other sacrifice for sin.

So don’t worry that you’ve committed the unpardonable sin. But if you don’t know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, be concerned that you might.

Closing thoughts:

HAVE YOU RESISTED?
If you’ve resisted Christ and refused Him as your Savior, and if something happens and you die, you will have committed the unpardonable sin. You don’t get a second chance after death. Whatever we do concerning Christ, we do in this life. Don’t gamble that you will have time or that you can respond later. The Bible says, “Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while He is near:” (Isaiah 55:6).

I’m here to tell you that Jesus is who He claims to be. He is the way, the truth, and the life. He is the only way to God. He is Son of God and Son of Man, our Savior, the Word made flesh, the Firstborn from the Dead. He is our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend. He is Christ the Lord, the Rock of Ages, the Sure Foundation, the Cornerstone. When He is your unforgettable Savior, you’ll never have to worry about the unforgivable sin.

Jews Are NOT The “Chosen People”

HOW CAN THE JEWS who oppose their own Messiah, Jesus Christ, be the “Chosen People?”
Did not St Paul, the Hebrew of Hebrews, say that the Jews are the enemies of the Cross of Christ? (Philippians 3:18)
When St Paul said, “…for ye also have suffered like things of your own countrymen, even as they have of the Jews:
Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:” (1 Thessalonians 2:14-15) did he not make it crystal clear that the Jews are not the “Chosen People”?
Did not Jesus Christ Himself reveal that the Jews are of the Synagogue of Satan? (Revelations 2:9). Jesus Christ also revealed that the Jews are not true Jews when He said to the Christians of Asia Minor, “I will make them who say they are Jews but are not, but do lie, to come and worship before thy feet.” (Revelations 3:9).
How then can the so-called Jews who are now the enemies of the Cross and of the Synagogue of Satan, and who must worship at the feet of Christians, be the “Chosen People”?

Jesus Christ the Messiah of Israel denounced the Jews for rejecting Him when He said, “Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.” (Matthew 23:38-39) How then can the Jews whose house is now desolate be the “Chosen People”?

When the Jews cast it in Jesus’ teeth that they were the seed of Abraham, Jesus replied, “Ye are of your father the devil . . . He was a murderer from the beginning, …” (John 8:44).

Indeed the Jews committed the crime of all crimes, namely, Deicide, when they brought Jesus Christ to Pontius Pilate demanding that Jesus Christ be crucified even when Pilate judged Christ innocent and desired to set Him free. (Matthew 27).

How then can the Jews, whose father is the devil, and they being murderers like the devil himself by crucifying the Lord of Glory, be the “Chosen People”?

DID NOT JESUS CHRIST say, “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for you compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, you make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.”? (Matthew 23:15).

Even secular Jews defer to the rabbis as their leaders when it comes to interpreting Jewish dogma. How then can the Jews who are children of hell be the “Chosen People”?
How could the Jews to whom Jesus Christ said, “But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep,…” (John 10:26) be God’s “Chosen People”? For to this day the majority of the Jews do not believe in Jesus Christ. What then is their “chosen-ness” if they are not of the Messiah’s sheep?
John the apostle said, “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.” (2 John:7).
How then can the Jews who to this day deny that Jesus Christ the eternal Son of God became man for our salvation be the “Chosen People”? Will we be “deceived” by the Jews that they are the Chosen People? What then is the Jews’ “chosen-ness”?

In Revelation 21:8 it is written: “But the fearful, and unbelieving and the abominable . . . shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire. . . . which is the second death.

1. The Jews are fearful of death.
2. They do not believe in the God of the Bible but in the god of the Talmud.
3. The Jews are liars. For they say that they are God’s chosen people when God says that they are an “accursed people” because of their sins. (Isaiah 66).
Thus the only “chosen-ness” of the Jews is their being chosen to experience the “second death” that is, the “lake of fire”.

MOSES WHOM THE JEWS boast as being their hero pronounced a blessing and a curse on the Jews.

God would bless the Jews if they showed their love for Him by accepting the “servant“, (Isaiah 52).
But the Jews crucified the “servant” rather than receiving His teachings on repentance and confession of his Divine right to demand obedience. The curses that Moses pronounced upon the Jews have been the Jews’ experience over the last 2000 years. (Deuteronomy 28).

Hated, persecuted, censured, (rightly so), wandering from nation to nation when expelled from their host nations, and wreaking havoc wherever they go in their hatred of Christianity, the Jews have indeed experienced the curses predicted of them by Moses and the desolation that Jesus Christ predicted of the Jews for rejecting Him.

JEWS ARE NOT THE “Chosen People”, Christians are the “Chosen People God said to Abraham, “And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” (Genesis 12:3).

What “blessings” have the Jews brought to the world since 33 A.D.? Just read today’s headlines and one can clearly see that “curses” have been brought upon society by the Jews.
The War in Iraq serves only the interests of the Jews and their promotion of the Christ-hating State of Israel. The tragedy of the World Trade Center was a result of the Zionist agenda.
The secularization of Western society is caused by the Jews, which has debased the morals of once Christian nations, now rife with the abominations of anal sex of homosexuals and the perverse sexual conduct of lesbians. Jews are on the forefront of promoting these perverse “alternate lifestyles”.
Are all of these things “blessings” from the so-called, “seed of Abraham”, the Jews? No. These are all “curses” brought upon us by the “seed of the devil”, the Jews.

Christians ARE God’s “Chosen People” – Not Jews. Christians are the “seed of Abraham”. This is what Paul the Hebrew of Hebrews said over and over again. Here is one instance of Paul’s many assertions that Christians NOT JEWS are the seed of Abraham: “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:29).

WHEN JESUS CHRIST said to his disciples, “… but I have chosen you … that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain:...” Born again Christians were sealed as God’s Chosen People for all time. Jews can share in the Christians’ “chosen-ness.”

Jews do not have to continue in a state of “accursedness” and “desolation”. Jesus Christ offers the Jews the chance to embrace Him and have His blessed name called upon them. Yes Jews if they will repent can be called Christians too!
Yes Jews, like myself, a former Jew, and thousands of others like me, can say, Blessed is He Who Comes in the name of the Lord. Then the Jews can look forward to heaven and not the lake of fire.
