Standing unashamedly for the King James Bible
Editorial: Homosexuality is once again the main focus of the AIB Newsletter. This sin is unfortunately growing and is being accepted by even the churches. The first three articles concern the North Carolina state Southern Baptist Convention. The fourth article is from our local paper reporting on a local hang out for sodomites. The fifth article is about a Spanish diplomat in Sydney Australia and his sodomite lover. 2 Timothy 4: 2, 3 “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.”
http://www.news‑record.com:80/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20061112/NEWSREC0101/611120317 12 Nov. 2006 BAPTISTS COULD MAKE HISTORY WITH ''SIN''POLICY (Edited by DCB) USA – “Extending the hand of fellowship to homosexuals could cost Baptist churches their affiliation with the state's largest religious group.” The North Carolina Southern Baptist State Convention’s “proposed guidelines would bar openly gay church‑goers from being baptized, accepted for membership, ordained or hired on staff.”
http://www.bscnc.org/insidebscnc/pressroomnewsletters/2006wrapups/twindoctrines.htm ARTICLES CHANGE BASED ON TWIN DOCTRINAL PILLARS (Edited by DCB) “Changes to the membership article in the” North Carolina “Baptist State Convention’s governing documents made by messengers to the annual session Nov. 14 are based on two basic Baptist doctrines: the doctrines of the church, and of salvation.” It is when “…issues of cooperation between local churches arise, it is again the messengers of the local church that are determining with whom, and to what extent, they wish to cooperate. In regards to the recent annual session, messengers decided that churches which promote, affirm, bless, support … homosexual behavior—though free to make those decisions—will not be viewed to be in ‘friendly cooperation’ with the churches that comprise the Baptist State Convention.” Those “…individuals who choose to remain in homosexuality or any other sinful lifestyle, according to Baptist doctrine, are not candidates for baptism, and as a result not candidates for church membership. When autonomous Baptist churches baptize and accept into their memberships unrepentant homosexuals, those churches have left Baptist doctrine.”
http://www.bscnc.org/insidebscnc/pressroomnewsletters/2006wrapups/sandersondonts.htm SANDERSON MOTION LOGISTICS CLARIFIED (Edited by DCB) “When North Carolina Baptists approved the Sanderson Motion Nov. 14, they effectively said churches which affirm homosexual behavior likely put themselves outside membership in the Baptist State Convention.” The motion “does not: keep churches from ministering to homosexuals; keep homosexuals from attending church; require churches to investigate their membership to discover homosexuals; establish a watchdog position in the Baptist State Convention whose responsibility it will be to monitor churches; automatically exclude any church.” A definition added to the motion was that “Among churches not in friendly cooperation with the Convention are churches which knowingly act to affirm, approve, endorse, promote, support or bless homosexual behavior.” It was further stated that “If two or more persons bring a claim that a church operates outside the new membership parameters, Convention administration will initiate dialog with the church to resolve the differences.”
Editor’s Comment: When man made organizations such as the SBC need to vote on Sodomites and church membership you can be sure the situation is beyond repair. 1 Corinthians 5:13 says “But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves (within the local church) that wicked person.” Those churches that have or even think of allowing sodomites into the membership or into positions of authority have shown themselves to have had their candlestick removed. Instead of voting on resolutions such as this every Bible believing conservative Southern Baptist Church should obey God’s command of 2 Corinthians 6: 14 which says “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?”
Dubbo Daily Liberal (Australia) GAY SEX HOT SPOT 14 November 2006 (Edited by DCB) “Dubbo's Sandy Beach has been listed on the internet as a homosexual ‘cruising’ hot spot, prompting council to lock the toilets at the city's popular recreation site.” The website “claims to ‘list and evaluate places all over the world where men meet other men for sex, fun and friendship’, of which Dubbo's Sandy Beach is one.” The website, according to the paper, also gives tips on what to do if you are arrested. The paper stated that “Police are by no means suggesting homosexual activity is a crime.” It should be!
Editor’s Comment: This sodomite movement is gaining momentum and it is worth quoting again the following from last months AIB Newsletter Issue #4. http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/pwh/swift1.html Michael Swift: "Gay Revolutionary" from Gay Community News, Feb. 15‑21, 1987 (reprinted from The Congressional Record, with preface restored) “We will unmask the powerful homosexuals who masquerade as heterosexuals. You will be shocked and frightened when you find that your presidents and their sons, your industrialists, your senators, your mayors, your generals, your athletes, your film stars, your television personalities, your civic leaders, your priests are not the safe, familiar, bourgeois, heterosexual figures you assumed them to be. We are everywhere; we have infiltrated your ranks. Be careful when you speak of homosexuals because we are always among you; we may be sitting across the desk from you; we may be sleeping in the same bed with you. (Emphasis added)” Brethren, they are everywhere and it does seem they are out to wittingly “…deceive every one his neighbour” Jeremiah 9:5.
Daily Telegraph 14 November 2006 (Australia) DIPLOMAT IN LOVER'S TIFF (Edited by DCB) “THE partner of the Spanish Consul‑General in NSW was yesterday convicted of assaulting the diplomat during a lover's tiff at their Vaucluse residence. Michael Kopietz, 34, slapped the face of Enrique Sarda Valls, the state's most‑senior Spanish official, during an argument in their bedroom. Mr Valls was so afraid of his ‘husband’ he alerted a Federal Police ‘crisis team’ to the property.” Kopietz pled guilty to assaulting Mr. Valls. Kopietz was also found to possess “drugs, including ice, when arrested by police.” The two men “have been in a relationship for a year and were married in a civil ceremony in Spain earlier this year.” According to Kopietz’ lawyer the two have “reconciled and were living together.” Kopietz was convicted of assault and placed on a 12 month good behaviour bond but the drug offences were dismissed “without recording a conviction.” No conviction on the drug charges!? Does one’s social status have anything to do with convictions? One can only speculate!
Editor’s Comment: Sodomy is not a normal lifestyle (Paul calls it “unseemly” Romans 1:27) and even though we have all read it before, Matthew 19: 4 needs to be repeated many, many times “And he (Jesus) answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female.” We need to also note 1Corinthians 7:2 which says “Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.” Daniel was in the habit of praying to God before Darius passed the law. So when the law was passed Daniel continued what he had always done before, pray to God. Brethren, be a Daniel now! Do not wait until the laws are passed that restrict your preaching against such sins. Frankly if a preacher waits until laws are passed and then begins to state publicly that these sins are an affront to God, that preacher is a hypocrite.
http://www.bscnc.org/insidebscnc/pressroomnewsletters/kingjamespopular.htm KING JAMES STILL MOST POPULAR FROM PULPIT (Edited by DCB) “More than one in three persons hears either the King James or New King James version of the Bible read most frequently from the pulpit of their local church, according to respondents to a poll at www.northcarolinabaptists.org.” “By order of popularity, the translations currently being heard are King James, 25 percent; New International, 18 percent; New King James, 12 percent; New American Standard, 9 percent; The Message, 7 percent; New Revised Standard, 6 percent; other, 21 percent; New Living, one percent; Good News, one percent.”
Editor’s Comment: Praise the Lord the King James Bible is still being used by the majority at least in this poll. But I wonder if most of these people polled really know why they should use the King James Bible. The King James Bible and it alone is the only English Bible that is properly translated from the preserved Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek words of the original autographs? Yes, we only have copies today of those original autographs but those copies underlying our King James Bible preserved those original words. The King James Bible is the only English Bible one can hold up and say “This is the Word of God” for all others; one must say “This contains the Word of God”.
