Standing unashamedly for the King James Bible,22049,23745082-5001021,00.html KAY GOLDSWORTHY IS ANGLICAN CHURCH'S FIRST WOMAN BISHOP 23 May 232008 (Edited by DCB) Well, it was bound to happen sometime and it did Thursday night 22 may 2008 in Perth, Western Australia. Kay Goldsworthy, a married woman of twenty years and mother of twin boys, became “Australia’s first woman bishop”. “Conspcuous in their absence for the two-hour ceremony were the head of the Sydney diocese, Archbishop Peter Jensen, and his brother Phillip Jensen, the dean of Sydney.”

Editor’s Comment: It does not really matter what Scripture says to those approving this action, but Scripture does say in 1Timothy 3:2 “A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife…” but then again that is only the Bible.,22049,23733828-5006009,00.html PARENTS UPROAR AT P&C OVER NUDE TEACHER LYNNE TZIOLAS 21 May 2008 (Edited by DCB) – One would think parents would be outraged if the teacher of their child appeared  nude with her husband “…in a Cleo magazine sealed section titled ‘Buck naked couples talk about their sex lives’”. However, this is not the case her. “Parents and students are circulating petitions with hundreds of names calling on the Department of Education and Training to reverse its decision” of standing down the teacher with full pay and “…departmental officers carry out an investigation.” One would not think an investigation would take too long as the photos were in a magazine anyone can purchase from a newsagent!

 Of course, there are those who say, “…her personal life should remain her personal life, it's nothing to do with the kids.” That is not true for she put her personal life in a magazine for all to see and it is therefore no longer personal! This is just another reason why Christians should preferably home school their children and not send them to government (public) schools.

 May 8, 2008 WALLACE, EHRMAN DEBATE N.T. RELIABILITY (Edited by DCB) Daniel Wallace professor of New Testament at Dallas Seminary says there is “Abundant evidence for the reliability of the New Testament…found in thousands of manuscripts, produced between the second and 14th centuries.” Wallace was “one of six speakers at New Orleans Baptist Teological Seminary's annual Greer-Heard Point-Counterpoint Forum.” One of the other speakers was “…New Testament scholar Bart Ehrman, a self-described agnostic and professor of religious studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.” Ehrman agreed there were thousands of manuscripts “but said the evidence for a reliable text is less convincing.” Ehrman said, “…more than 90 percent of the New Testament manuscripts date from the eighth century, 700 years after the originals were composed.”  Dallas Seminary’s Professor Wallace “…pointed to two attitudes that he avoids when he approaches the text: absolute certainty and total despair.”

It is interesting, that even though the King James Bible’s underlying Greek Text uses the majority of those manuscripts, which Dr. Wallace says  are, “evidence for the reliability of the New Testament”, he believes that Text is “vastly inferior to that of modern translations” (  The modern translations he prefers use a Text based on a minority of manusript evidence. Personally, I do not always believe the professors or scholars.

HOLY WATER AIMS TO QUENCH THIRST OF BODY AND SOUL 3 May 2008 (Edited by DCB) Two Flordia bussinessmen are producing “Spiritual Water” which “is a faith-based product that aims to make consumers feel good when they drink it.” The instruction on the bottle say “Read the Prayer ... / Drink the Water . . . / Believe in God! / Believe in Yourself!” There are eleven bottles in the collection and they “…bearprayers and impressively detailed images of Jesus Christ, St. Michael and the Virgin Mary.” 

Then there is the “California-based Holy Drinking Water” which “offers a $1.49 half-liter that has been blessed in a warehouse by a priest.” The purpose of this drink “…is designed to promote good behavior.”


Editor’s Comment: John 4: 13, 14 “Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.


Because of Grace and Calvary,
