    Now there’s a book, chapter and verse for ;) :( and :p 

    The Bible’s newest translation is in emojis and emoticons according to this story. In the story you’ll read that, “The authors of the new translation say that about 10 to 15 percent of the translation is in emoticon speak while the remainder is in boring, old alphabet characters.”

    The amazing thing to me is that the goal of the “translation” (which is based on the KJV for obvious copyright purposes) is supposed to be a serious one. It’s supposed to be Scripture for Millennials; the creators also said, “that they created the translation program to draw new readers to the word of God”.

    I don’t know if the app is one that must be paid for…I haven’t checked it out myself, but if you have an Apple device, the app is available in Apple’s App Store so you can check it out if you choose.

    So what do you think? Is this “translation” a good move? Or do you think it’s better left for the digital recycling bin as you LOL at it?

      My opinion is no, it’s not a good move. The more we get away from the true meaning of the bible, the less others will understand what they are truly missing out on. I pray for our nation to seek out the truth from the living word of God.

      Eugene, this “emoji” thing is yet another attempt by the Devil to: (1) make the Bible look like cartoons; (2) lose most of the God-inspired wording; (3) appeal to minds already dumbed down by pictures, not words; (4) put somebodies between what God actually said and someone who hungers and thirsts for righteousness! “Translation,” as you know, is as accurate from one language to another as is humanly possible, adding only those words in the new language to complete the sentences as originally given by God! It is a daunting task, to make both the text and the translation as precise as can be. If God had wanted Scripture to be “emoticons,” He could have used hyrogliphics, or other characterizations. Words convey ideas, and sentences lock in the use and definitions of the words. Paul wrote “how that by revelation He made known to me the mystery (as I have briefly written already, by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ), which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophet” (Ephesians 3:3-5 NKJV). Words speak, “emoticons” don’t! “Preach the word.”

        Hard to argue against what you’re saying. I (like the previous commenter said in so many words) think it waters down the word in a way that’s completely unnecessary. Thanks for commenting brother.

    Hugh’s News & Views (Feeding . . . Starving) 


    If it is true that “man shall not live by bread (synecdoche for all foods, hf) alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God” (and undoubtedly it is, for Christ Himself said so) (Matthew 4:4), then there are multiplied millions of people who are feeding their bodies and starving their souls! While many Americans and citizens of other advanced nations are well fed physically, their souls are malnourished because they have neglected the reading and study of the Bible, God’s inspired word to mankind.

    Not a few folk have been restricted in their movements because of ice or snow. Schools have been cancelled. People have been told not to go to work. Churches have cancelled their meetings or have scheduled a single meeting later in the day, to give the ice and snow a chance to melt.

    Ready or not time is swiftly passing 

    2015 is here. It will take me a while to get accustomed to writing that date, but I will. Time marches on. It waits for no one. It reminds me of a game we played as children, when we yelled, “ready or not, here I come.” We often ask, “Where does the time go?” It’s moving along slowly but surely. Ready or not, it is coming if the Lord allows the world to stand.

    Are we ready? You might think, “Well, what difference does it make?” As time marches on each of us is growing older. We are one step closer to the grave, to eternity. That’s the difference it makes.

    When Hayes Funeral Home in Elba has a new body, they send me an announcement by email. I always feel a sense of dread in opening the email, afraid it might be someone I know. Often times it is someone I know. Death waits for no one. Friends and loved ones are going out into eternity, ready or not.

    Let’s look at our spiritual growth during the past year. Let’s ask ourselves some serious questions:

    Did we grow spiritually last year?
    Are we closer to the Lord than we were a year ago?
    Did our knowledge of the Word of God increase?
    Did we devote more time to doing the Lord’s work this past year? Did we visit more? Did we talk to anyone about their soul? Did we help anyone in need? Did we give of our means as He would have us do? Did we attend the services of the church faithfully? Did we lead anyone to the Lord? Did we try?

    Dr. Phil McGraw will often say, “The best way to determine future behavior is to look at past behavior.” I hope that is not true with our spiritual life. I hope that each year we will resolve to grow spiritually by studying our Bibles, by praying, by faithfully attending the services of the church, and by serving our fellowman with the goal of leading them to Christ.

    When I was young, the Chuck Wagon Gang sang a song that I love. The chorus Is:

    “I want my Lord to be satisfied with me.
    I want my life to be what He’d have it be.
    And when I come to that great eternity,
    His smile will say He is satisfied with me.”

    Hugh's News & Views (Read The Bible . . .) 


    A Christian, regardless of his or her age, never outgrows the need for Bible study. The word of God is milk for the newborn babe in Christ (1 Peter 2:1-2); it is solid food (strong meat, KJV) for “those who are of full age” (Hebrews 5:14). Christ is the water of life and the bread of life (John 4:13-14; 6:48-51), and one never reaches the point where he does not need the spiritual nourishment that Christ provides.

    This nourishment is available only through God’s word and can be accessed only by a diligent and ongoing study of the Bible. “Man shall not live by bread along, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4; cf. Deuteronomy 8:3).

    All Christians, young and old alike, need to remember: “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled” (Matthew 5:6, NKJV). God’s word provides spiritual nourishment for those in all stages of life and at all levels of spiritual maturity.

    There are several reasons why Christians need to be engaged in continuous Bible study. (More …)

    Is Your Bible a Special Book to You? 

    Recently I was checking posts on Facebook when I came upon a video made of Christians in China receiving Bibles. Someone placed a large, black, suitcase on the floor and unzipped it. It was filled with Bibles. The men and women rushed to it as if it were filled with one hundred-dollar bills, or a favorite food item. Soon the Bibles were all taken, and the case was empty.

    Psalm 123 What Shall I Do, Lord? 

    There is uncertainty regarding the author, time, or circumstances of these Psalms, but it is apparent Psalms 120-134 work together, and are called the “Songs of Degrees,” and sometimes “Songs of Ascension.”

    Verse 1 directs our eyes;

    Verse 2 directs our obedience;

    Verse 3 directs our hearts;

    Verse 4 directs our pleas.

    Verse 1: Since “heavens” means upper expanse, whenever we need to look for God, we must “lift up our eyes.” Jesus, as God, now is “dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see” (1 Timothy 6:16). Morally, to “see God” is to see the effects of His Will in the obedient heart. Jesus said: “Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8). Peter taught how a heart becomes pure: “Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever” (1 Peter 1:22-23). John added: “He who does good is of God, but he who does evil has not seen God” (3 John 11).

    Verse 2: It is not enough just to “look” for God, but it must be with a humble heart: “as” the servant’s eyes look in anticipation of what the master desires to be done; “as” the maid looks for whatever detail she may provide for her mistress’s satisfaction; “so” we look toward God for instruction. Our eagerness to obey Him prompts His willingness to extend “mercy” to us! He, however, has already given all of His instruction in His Book “once for all” (Jude 3). No one should look toward God without seeing Jesus in His Word: “Jesus said to him, ‘Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father?’ Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works” (John 14:9-10).

    Verses 3-4: We keenly feel the need for God’s “mercy” because we are “exceedingly filled” with “the contempt of the proud.” These are the people who, Jesus said, “this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause’” (John 15:25). Jesus had also taught: “Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also” (John 15:20).

    Thought: It is pitiful to see people “look up to:” Gandhi, Marx, Einstein, Darwin, Mohammed, “the Pope,” a pastor, ancestors, a teacher, philosophers, or gurus but look down on (denigrate) Jesus Christ! Truth is entirely the other way: “we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men” (1 Corinthians 1:23-25). We quote the statements that have influenced us the most: Do we quote Jesus Christ above all?

    Psalm 120 God Hears When the World is Saying Wrong Things 

    There is uncertainty regarding the author, time, or circumstances of these Psalms, but it is apparent Psalms 120-134 work together, and are called the “Songs of Degrees,” and sometimes “Songs of Ascension.”

    Verses 1-4 contrast God’s listening to help, and our having to listen to others;

    Verses 5-7 state how hard it is to live among war-mongers.

    Verses 1-4: (Verse 1) God hears our cries from distress. Jacob said God had done so (Genesis 35:3); David said God had (2 Samuel 22:7); Paul said distress cannot “separate us from the love of Christ” (Romans 8:35). (Verse 2) Integrity, trust, faith, dependability all are ruined by “lying lips” and a “deceitful tongue.” “Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD, But those who deal truthfully are His delight” (Proverbs 12:22). Having a “deceitful tongue” is responsible for destroying the credibility of gossips, talebearers, editorial writers, propaganda press, factory fables, and many others. (Verse 3) There will be a judgment against a “false tongue.” “All liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death” (Revelation 21:8). (Verse 4) Whoever said “words can never hurt me” wasn’t familiar with this verse. Words can pierce like “sharp arrows of the warrior,” and burn like “coals of the broom tree.” “For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body. Indeed, we put bits in horses’ mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body. Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell. For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison” (James 3:2-8).

    Verses 5-7: (Verse 5) Little is certain of these places, “Meshech” (slave traders, Ezekiel 27:13) and “Kedar” (wanderers, Isaiah 21:16-17), but they represent the hostile environment many people experience, even today. (Verses 6-7) Patience and longsuffering can wear us down or wear us out when we are mis-matched with polar opposites on a subject like “war” and “peace.” There is “a time of war, And a time of peace” (Ecclesiastes 3:8), however “wisdom is better than weapons of war; But one sinner destroys much good” (Ecclesiastes 9:18). The wise can avoid war, but the foolish advocate it and their foreign policies depend upon it! Christians are not waging carnal war against their enemies (2 Corinthians 10:2-6). “When a man’s ways please the LORD, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him” (Proverbs 16:7).

    Why I read Scripture 

    • I READ THE BOOKS OF MOSES (Gen-Deu) to master, from the historical narrative materials, the timeless models of life with God and to learn from the priestly materials a basic sense of what it means to be holy, forgiven, and in communion with God.

    • I READ THE PSALMS to learn how to respond to God with the full range of my faith and feelings.

    • I READ THE OLD TESTAMENT NARRATIVES to understand how God–who is always the hero of these stories–relates to humans as they really are: elusive, complex, culturally conditioned, unpredictable, and inconsistent.

    • I READ THE WISDOM BOOKS (Pro, Ecc) to learn the arts of godly living–how to live sensibly and well in life as it really is.

    • I READ THE PROPHETS to be inspired by God’s vision for a moral and just society that one day will fill the earth and to be amazed as I see God’s spoken word take concrete form when predictions of future events come to past in minute detail.

    • I READ THE GOSPELS to see God in His definitive manifestation of Himself in the life, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth and to respond to Him by growing in ways of life-changing and world-changing discipleship.

    • I READ THE BOOK OF ACTS to enter consciously and confidently into the never-ending story of the triumphant, joyful, spiritual expansion of the Gospel throughout the world. (More …)

    A Daily Basis? 

    In the latest issue of the Gospel advocate (GA), there is a small piece concerning the amount of time Christians read the Scriptures on a daily basis. The numbers were discouraging.

    On a daily basis only 195 of the respondents to a survey said they read and study the Bible; 36% engage in Bible study once a week. “The Christian Post, in an article titled ‘Study: Most Churchgoers Do Not Read Bible on a Daily Basis,’ reported that [the author] felt attributes from the modern American culture influenced the responses… Too many churchgoers want the benefits of salvation without investing in personally knowing Christ and the abundant life he offers” (cited in the GA, November 2012).

    There are a number of warnings to be found in Scripture: there is the warning that pertains to failing to live a godly life, there is a warning concerning the Lord’s ultimate return and judgment, and there is a warning pertaining to Jerusalem’s destruction. These warnings exist in order to help people understand particular dangers associated with not listening. Because people fail to heed the Lord’s word it is only to be expected they will fall into the trap of Satan. Why do people refuse to hear? Hosea said: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children” (4:6, ESV). Two reasons the Lord’s prophet gives us: rejection and forgotten. Hosea spoke to those who were in positions of religious authority. You will note, that destruction is the result of ignorance, and ignorance is the result of refusing to learn from the Lord. Paul said many years late, “Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is” (Ephesians 5:17).

    It is a serious matter, and only the fool-hearted person will not take it to heart! Just as the report said, there are many people who go to church and want to be saved by the Lord’s mercy, but these same people are guilty of what Hosea said.

    Are we so busy at home that we can’t take time—even twenty minutes each night—to read together as a family, or even individually? Are we so busy with work that when we come home we can’t take that same amount of time to give to the Lord when He so abundantly gave to us? As parents and adults we are able to offer any number of reasons why we didn’t so this or that. Others will express understanding and sympathy. How do you think the Lord will respond to these reasons, especially if the children leave Him who gave so much? I think you know.

    Why Sandy Hook? 

    On Friday, December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut, a 20-year-old gunman massacred 20 Sandy Hook Elementary Students, 5 Faculty members, his mother, and then himself. Too late, he took himself out of our misery. The inevitable question is: WHY?

    (1) Former Mayor of New York City, Rudy Giuliani, the next day on Fox TV News noted the answer is “complex,” involving medical, psychological, mental, sociological factors, and anyone who had a simple answer could not be right. (2) Politicians and their Propaganda Press, began their tyrannical mantra of, “all guns must be outlawed.” (3) Even before the precious bodies began to be buried, President Obama did not let this crisis go to waste, and on Sunday opened his address to that stunned community gathering with a Scripture quotation:

     A) “Thank you. Thank you, governor. To all the families, first responders, to the community of Newtown, clergy, guests: Scripture tells us: “…do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away…inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.”

    He also used the occasion to advance his political agenda:

    B) “In the coming weeks, I’ll use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens — from law enforcement to mental health professionals to parents and educators — in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this,” Obama said. “Because what choice do we have? We can’t accept events like this as routine. Are we really prepared to say that we’re powerless in the face of such carnage? That the politics are too hard?”

     A response to their remarks follows.

    (1) Mayor Giuliani’s comment shows abysmal ignorance of the Word of God. God created humans and knows everything about us; the Bible is the gradual unfolding of the revelation of God and what He provides in our best interest; Jesus Christ is the only personification of perfection in a human being. God condemned the first murderer, Cain, who killed his brother Abel. “Why?” is answered in 1 John 3:11-12: “For this is the message that you heard from the beginning, that we should love one another, not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his works were evil and his brother’s righteous.” In the entire history of mankind, those who choose to do evil obey the Devil, of whom Jesus Christ said, “”Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it” (John 8:43-44). The simple solution to all evil is that, for whatever reasons, evil is chosen and the Devil obeyed. Jesus Christ is available for everyone who repents and is baptized in His name for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38).

    (2) The Propaganda Press drive a political agenda by reciting its current mantra, without investigating and reporting only the facts. Any horrific crime where a gun is used, “the gun must be outlawed.” Almost every school shooter has been a boy from a broken home. God planned that every child born should have two parents: a male and a female (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6; Colossians 3:18-21). A Government which sanctions divorce for every cause, “legalizes” homosexual “marriages,” and provides welfare for single parents has virtually destroyed the will and need for the home as God would have it. For every “single mother” there is a delinquent dad. But the Propaganda Press completely ignores this fact because they headline their “party line.”

     (3) A) The Scripture the President quoted is 2 Corinthians 4:16-5:1, and it comforts in that it emphasizes that the stresses and pains we encounter in this life should not keep us from achieving the greater goal of “an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.”

    However the President of the United States of America, standing before the American Flag and behind the Presidential Seal, in a public school facility, and in his official capacity representing the Executive Branch of the Government, quoted Scripture??? What happened to the “separation of church and state” arguments? The President proved by his quotation that there is NO “Law of the Land” that separates “church and state,” therefore THERE IS NO LEGAL PROHIBITION FOR PREACHING SCRIPTURE, PRAYING, OR OTHER RELIGIOUS PRACTICES IN PUBLIC ASSEMBLIES!!! Since he disregarded all supposed claims that separate church from state, WHY CAN’T ALL CHRISTIANS DO THE SAME?

    The President’s quotation was written by an “Apostle of Jesus Christ” and to those whose “sufferings” and “consolation” are connected with Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 1:1, 5). Was the President being insensitive to other religious groups? Were there no Jews, Muslims, or Atheists present to object to Christian Scripture, or the concepts of “inner man,” or “eternal?” One parent’s objection has been all it has taken to stop such references throughout the rest of the country. Since the President of the United States of America can preach from Scripture written in the name of Jesus Christ in complete disregard for minority objections, THEN WHY CAN’T ALL CHRISTIANS? Those who do not accept the beliefs of the group should simply absent themselves from that group assembly.

    That the President would quote Scripture to show concern for these dead children makes one wonder why he doesn’t quote other Scriptures for the living children?

    -Has he not read about the Egyptian king who “dealt treacherously” by having babies killed as they were born (Acts 7:17-19)?

    -Has he not read how God described how His sparing Jerusalem was like saving a newborn baby that had been “loathed on the day” it was born and thrown to the ground that it might die (Ezekiel 16:1-6)?

    -Has he not read that God’s Prophet, Elisha, wept foreseeing a king’s “evil” who “will dash their children, and rip open their women with child” (2 Kings 8:12)?

    -When abortion murders millions of babies who, though conceived, were “not yet being born, nor having done any good or evil” (Romans 9:10-11), what is the President doing to prevent “more tragedies like this?”

    If the President only quoted Scripture for a political photo-op, then, we must conclude he uses God’s Word to cover selfish ambition, and is “handling the word of God deceitfully” (2 Corinthians 4:2). If, however, he believes in God, the Bible, and Jesus Christ, then we must conclude that he’ll “use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens — from law enforcement to mental health professionals to parents and educators — in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this” by Executive Order, thus remove all laws and rulings that presently “suppress the truth in unrighteousness” (Romans 1:18).

    (3) B) The President said, “We can’t accept events like this as routine. Are we really prepared to say that we’re powerless in the face of such carnage? That the politics are too hard?”

    -Then how can he accept “as routine” abortion clinics, Planned Parenthood, or The Supreme Court’s ruling that approve the genocide of abortion?

    -Then how can he accept “as routine” thousands of American military service personnel who continually die in foreign countries?

    -Then how can he accept “as routine” Federal policies that hamper public education (and protection!) of our precious children, that take it out of local, loving hands?

    There is no answer or preventative to be found in the institutions of men who “only fix our eyes on what is seen,” and refuse to see the solution offered by the God who cannot be seen about that which we cannot see. Only God, the Bible, and Jesus Christ can prevent more sin.
