Question of the day: translated for who?
Posted by heather joy
Continuing on in the series of questions put forth by Dr. Sam Gipp in His book “The Answer Book.”*
Several people have asked me why I continue to post questions from Dr. Gipp’s book when I myself claim to not agree with him completely. The short and sweet of it is this: I am grasping at every second I have these days. I work full time (plus some), go to school full time (plus some), work several church ministries, and have a bunch of other projects going on – in addition to this blog. Hence, by posting these questions/answers two days a week, it helps me free up a little bit of time… which, in the end, helps keep my sanity in tact. :] See… it’s a win/win situation.
As I said before, the point of these questions is not to start a Baptist War, but rather encourage everyone to engage in a discussion and learn from and among fellow believers. I believe everyone’s doing a good job at sticking to the purpose.
I don’t want you to rely on “he said, she said” or even unconfirmed history. Read your Bible, study accurate accounts of History, pray about it, and take what you don’t understand by faith.
I will post Dr. Gipp’s written answer to the question tomorrow, so be sure to check back on here for the answer to today’s question.
Here’s the question for today…
If King James didn’t authorize the Bible for use in churches, who was it translated for?
Thoughts? Opinions? Scriptures to back your position?
