A Switch To The NKJV And More Evidence That Our Civilization Is Toast

That’s it.

I can’t take it anymore.

I had been trying to read through the Bible this year, using the ESV. And, I got halfway through before giving up. There are too many errors, and some of them are deliberate. And then, there’s the issue of the ESV basing their New Testament translation on corrupt manuscripts.

It’s just too much, so I’ve finally switched to the New King James Version (NKJV). It also makes translation mistakes, but there seem to be fewer of those, and they used better manuscripts.

Why did Crossway need to be so corrupt?

Oh, and we have more evidence that our civilization is toast.

Did You Have Faith in Politics?

Now that Joe Biden is President of the United States, I still find myself bemused by how much faith Christians have in politics.

How is it possible for us to claim Christ as our savior…

…while idolizing a president and a political process?

I understand why non-Christians would put so much faith in politics. They don’t have anything else to put faith in. But not Christians. Christians should know exactly Who to put their faith in.

So, why are we demonstrating to the world, that we don’t think that God is in control?

Seriously, that’s what Christians are saying, when they seek the overthrow of a political process, or go into despair when they can’t. So, maybe this is a good opportunity to contemplate our faith.

Also, in this piece, I talk about False Prophets of Profit, the QHoax and your security.

3/11 – A Warning Ignored

Sunday was the seven year anniversary of 3/11.

Three eleven. That’s what we – in East Asia – call the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami of March 11th, 2011. The rest of you think of it as the time when the Fukushima nuclear reactors melted down and blew up.

However, it’s more than a disaster. It’s also an allegory of the future – an allegory that we need to pay attention to. Those who do not internalize this warning about the future, will be lucky to survive when that future arrives.

Why do I say this?

Most who died in the 3/11 Tsunami, did so because they ignored the warning – or didn’t hear it.

Three Huge Concerns: Debt, Israel and Hard Hearts

I saw evidence of three great catastrophes this week, and they should start alarm bells ringing in all of our minds:

  • Interest Rates
  • Hezbollah and Iran Challenging Israel
  • Hard Hearts in Our Churches

The last one is the most important, but you’ll understand the first one better. And for the second… you won’t understand the significance, unless you’ve read Ezekiel’s Fire. And, you need to read Ezekiel’s Fire.

I’m going to give an overview of the importance of those three catastrophes. And, I hope that you’ll pay attention to them. They won’t be fixed, but they can be avoided.

Before the Storm

After last week’s article, Hurricane Irma blundered through Florida and Georgia. Then, Typhoon Talim set its sights on my apartment building. However, Talim veered off to the North and didn’t do much more than rain on us, here in Taipei. But, Irma left a gigantic swath of destruction in her wake.

Half of Florida might be without power for weeks. People have been displaced. Lives and jobs disrupted and even ruined. And the loss of lives…

That was a terrible hurricane, and Florida hasn’t had one of those in a long time. But, I have an interesting observation, from all the typhoons that my wife and I have been through…

…did you notice how quiet and normal everything was, the day before?
