Two days ago I posted “Quick Thought on the Queen James Bible (LGBT) Part 2.”  That post was a response to a gay friendly Bible called the Queen James Bible.  Part 2 was a specific response to the following statement from the product’s Amazon page:

Anti-LGBT Bible interpretations commonly cite only eight verses in the Bible that they interpret to mean homosexuality is a sin; Eight verses in a book of thousands!

I thought that was a terrible argument against the view that homosexuality is a sin which part 2 of my post dealt with.  However our dear friend who blogs at Eternity Matters even added more firepower against the statement’s flawed thinking which puts the “only eight verses” argument in perspective.  It was too good not to share as a post.

Here’s what he said:

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: “What did the sign over Jesus’s head say?”

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction:

THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS

And above His head they put up the charge against Him [a]which read, “THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.”
(Matthew 27:37)

 

THE KING OF THE JEWS

The inscription of the charge against Him [a]read, “THE KING OF THE JEWS.” (Mark 15:26)

THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS

Now there was also an inscription above Him, “THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.” (Luke 23:38)

JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS

Pilate also wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It was written, “JESUS THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS.” (John 19:19)

Here’s a closer look at whether or not there is a contradiction:

Earlier I posted “Quick Thought on the Queen James Bible (LGBT) Part 1.”  I found out that our friend Michael Coughlin has blogged about this pro-LGBT Bible version in a post with the witty title “My Rejection of QJV Onlylism.”  From that post I also learned that Matt Slick of CARM ministry has also a response page called “Queen James Bible.”

So there’s no need to re-invent the wheel.  But I thought I do respond to a statement found on the book’s Amazon page:

Anti-LGBT Bible interpretations commonly cite only eight verses in the Bible that they interpret to mean homosexuality is a sin; Eight verses in a book of thousands!

I thought that was an interesting argument.  Here’s my take of it.

Shepherd’s Conference (a conference for Pastors and Preachers) was a few weeks ago with the celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and the theme of “We Preach Christ.”  Some of you who were not there still was able to enjoy the General Sessions because the Conference graciously livestreamed them.  However the various seminar sessions are what some people are looking forward to whether you were in the conference or not since they were more specific and occurred simultaneously with other seminar sessions.  Since there are 19 of them they are something that’s going to take some to time for me to listen through!

I know the official Shepherd’s Conference website says “Media Coming Soon” but the Audio MP3s of the seminar sessions can be downloaded by clicking on the title of the sessions below:

I heard about the “Queen James Bible” sometime ago but I saw someone mentioned it on social media just right now.  It is a LGBT friendly Bible.

What’s the first thought that came into my mind?

What an amazing thing that we live today in a time in which the internet allows people from all over the world can be exposed to the East and the West.  It’s a great opportunity for the Gospel.

Here’s a passionate sermon in English and translated into Mandarin Chinese.

Be blessed:

I pray the Lord would use this to witness and plant seed to those who are Chinese speaking and do not know Jesus.

Today’s post will tackle another question that the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: “Where did the women watching the crucifixion stand?”

Here are the two answers which the skeptic believes shows a Bible contradiction:

They stood far away.

Many women were there looking on from a distance, who had followed Jesus from Galilee while ministering to Him.
(Matthew 27:55)

There were also some women looking on from a distance, among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of [a]James the Less and Joses, and Salome. (Mark 15:40)

And all His acquaintances and the women who accompanied Him from Galilee were standing at a distance, seeing these things.
(Luke 23:49)

They stood near the cross.

Therefore the soldiers did these things. But standing by the cross of Jesus were His mother, and His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.” (John 19:25)
