I've been a degenerate gambler and am known to put a stake down now and then, but ; however, asswagery I have never done.

I swear.

I agree, you gotta be pretty desperate to bet your ass...but that's how they rolled in 1611 (or was it 1769?)

Well, what do you expect from an article written by an heretick?

That rendition of the Our Father was priceless. We just had a class on that prayer today and I think I will suggest we use The Message for Sunday School. It brings up nuances that we somehow did not cover. Hard to imagine singing for "three square meals" during the Liturgy though.

One of the odd things about KJV onlyists is that they seem completely oblivious to the fact the KJV was translated primarily by High Church Anglicans and yet they wouldn't say anything positive about the anglican church and in fact say they are not hte true Church.

But i recently heard an argument like this online, The KJV is true because it says there is no other gospel... Yeah...

Ha ha ha! That always gets me too. Sometimes when a person gets going about the importance of the KJV, I say, "So, you're an Anglican?" And they nearly always sputter to a halt.  Undecided

Gotta admit, that's my kinda prayer. Sounds a lot more enticing than "daily bread." Truly, the cost of discipleship...

To be honest, most of them do not even know how or when it was translated. I've actually heard KJV-Onlyists who believe that the King James who translated it was St. James the Apostle, the Bishop of Jerusalem! What's even more amazing is that they believe Middle Easterners 2,000 years ago knew English when English in its modern form did not even exist yet.

Mock them as you see fit. All the folks I was in church with as a kid could hand every person in my parish now, except one or two folks, their hat when it came to their knowledge and understanding of Scripture.

Melodist is a shining example of what happens when you have a brilliant marriage of Scriptural literacy and Orthodox theology. He is one of the few I would tap at my parish to argue Scripture with the KJV crowd.

You should read his blog. It is highly recommended.

You should suggest it to your Protestant friends, but don't tell then it is an Orthodox blog. Have them start at the beginning. Melodist doesn't go all Hyperdox.

He roots everything in Scripture and does a brilliant job of meticulously and economically making his points.

From the beginning:

Melodist has a blog? Wow, thanks Orthonorm! Smiley By the way, I have to admit. I am starting to feel intimidated now every time Orthonorm posts something about one of my posts...

Seriously check it out. It's is top notch and I am not just saying because I know him in person. Or because I bullied him into it.

My work is insane and affords me a little time to post some quick stuff on here and my health is waxing enough to get back to writing, which is what these reprieves sort of are. Breaks from other writing, while I keep writing.

And yet my work and health are at a sweet spot to keep me away from most of the services this week unfortunately.

That blog will be perfect for my Protestant parents; they're always looking for Bible podcasts and blogs. I'll just give them this one and tell them it's real good and not mention that it is Orthodox.
