None Know Enough

None of us know enough to be dogmatic. All that we wisest can say is, “At the present time, such and such appears to be true”; if we be wise, we add, “But fuller knowledge may make a change of opinion necessary.”

On the Word “Eternal”

March 23, 2015

Listen to Today’s Audio Goodie
(Let Clyde read the Goodie for you!)

Let me say to Bible students that we must be very careful how we use the word “eternity.” We have fallen into great error in our constant use of that word. There is no word in the whole Book of God corresponding with our “eternal,” which, as commonly used among us, means absolutely without end. … Men have divided the Church, separated from each other, and persecuted one another, upon a thought conveyed by an English word which has no equivalent in the Bible.

The Purification Process of God’s Word

January 24, 2009

“The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times” (Psalms 12:6)

Every generation needs to go through the purification process as words change meaning … The best translation of the Bible is of no value if the reader cannot understand what is written. The changing of word meanings can make a majestic translation to one generation a poor translation to following generations. This is why the Psalmist refers to more than one purification.
