Are You a Confirmed Drunkard?

Here’s a quick “Twist in Translation” I found while studying the faithful and discreet slave (please see the study “Who is the Faithful and Discreet Slave? (A context adventure) for a clear study on the slave). It pretty much explains itself. See the passage below and meet me on the other side.  My purpose here is…

Is Scripture Sufficient?

      If you are a JW, are you aware that the Watchtower teaches that independent Bible reading is not productive?  You don’t believe me do you? 🙂  Here’s some quotes (not an exhaustive list by any means)  We are told in the New Testament that the Holy Spirit is the one given to…

Who is the Faithful and Discreet Slave? (A Context Adventure)

So here we are looking at Matt 24:45 and scratching our heads. Who is the faithful and discreet slave??  What if we had nothing to aid our understanding? No one to explain?  Could we figure it out just from the pages of the Bible?  Let’s try!   How can we do that?  We have to…

Let’s get it right! This is Paul’s definition of the Gospel (or good news of Christ) Paul tells us what was…

It’s Subliminal
