Greektim,

I wonder where Peter, James, and John got their "degree"? Where did Paul & Apollos "matriculate" and get their "degree"? Where did the Lord Jesus Christ get His "degree"? Hmmm? What difference does it make WHERE someone got his "degree" or whether he even has a "degree" or not? Hmmm?

Are only those with people with "degrees" QUALIFIED to teach and preach God's word? Are only those people with "degrees" to be listened to and all of the rest of the men whom God has called (without "degrees") to be ignored?

Do you know what Paul thought about his "degree"?

Philippians 3:7 But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,


I'm not going to give you the "modern translation" for what Paul "thought" about his "degree", but I will say that your snobbish, intellectual, and elitist approach to God's Holy word and to God's people is enough to turn my stomach!

WHO CARES? The question is: Is he preaching and teaching SOUND DOCTRINE? Is he a faithful minister of the Holy things of God? Is he an "example" of what a servant of the most high God should be? NOT - "WHERE DID HE RECEIVE HIS ThD"! It's too bad that you are not as CONCERNED about the TRUTH, as you are "CURIOUS" about about the QUALIFICATIONS of a minister of God!

If the Apostles were here would you ask that question about them? If the Lord Jesus Christ were here would you dare to question His "QUALIFICATIONS" - like the PHARISEES (before you) DID?

I'd advise you to get off of "your high horse", and take a good look at yourself:

Romans 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think;but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Talk about false accusations...

If Sam Gipp's degree didn't matter, then it would not be next to his name repeatedly on his website.

I am a very curious person. It gets me into trouble at times. But I don't see any problem w/ being curious about where he recieved his degree. You speak before you even understodd where I was coming from. YOu judged me without knowing my motives. Amazing how I can be rebuked for being inquisitive. I guess I should have prefaced my question as honest so as to avoid this. I don't know much about Gipp, so one way to learn about him is to see where he did his formal training. No big deal.

Greetings GreekTim,
I assume you are the author, "Tim", of the website link below your name. In the profile of that name is seven sentences. Here is one:
"I am extremely against the KJV only view. "

Is this you? Correct me if I am wrong.

In Christ

I don't mind answering questions...in fact...I would love to discuss my views. But I just want this thread to stay focused on my question. I searched the net and cannot find my answer. I was hoping to find some help here.

Your answer, yes, that is me.

I am afraid Tim presents himself as one of the many people we get joining the forum on a weekly basis, who have no intention of discussing the Bible, scripture, the grievous ERROR of modern versions through corrupt, philosophy leavened texts or indeed anything with us, but rather here to push "the greek" or scholarly wisdom and letters after mens names.

God gave me a Book, one book, to study and learn from, not from texts and ancient manuscripts.

1 Corinthians 2:4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
1 Corinthians 2:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

I am so blessed to have these letters after my name

Again this has nothing to do w/ the topic of this thread, but...

I don't know that i have presented myself in such a way, Steven. I asked a question. That doesn't present anything about me other than I am curious and inquisitive.

I do hope to be "discussing the Bible, scripture, the grievous ERROR of modern versions through corrupt, philosophy leavened texts or indeed anything with us." I just had a question and wanted to know. I thought this might be a good place to find out. I am sure many of you know Dr. Gipp or at least about him.

Tim

Can I ask why you joined this forum? You by your own admission from your website are
"extremely against the KJV only view. "
Now from the get go we on this forum can see your agenda, you are not here to discuss anything, but you are here to try and persuade a group of Born again Bible believers that their choice of One Book is wrong.

Absolutely NO amount of "greek", "scholarly" input nor humanistic reasoning will ever persuade me that the Lord hasn't preserved his word, for us, today, IN ONE PLACE, in one book, the KJB. If you desire to continue the fruitless study of "Greek manuscripts and underlying texts" that is you perogative.
I know that as a young man (well youngish) I pray to stand and fight the good fight with a sharp sword in my hand, not a flimsy handful of texts or a garden spade modern version. I am armoured up to fight for Christ, not dressed down with ecumenical compromise and weak weapons of apostate nature.

1 Timothy 1:17-19 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen. This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare; Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:

I am here so that iron can sharpen iron.

I have not presented an agenda thus far. I have not even tried to persuade anyone saved or unsaved about a choice of One Book. I have jumped into discussions and tried to start some as well. So while I appreciate your zeal for what you hold to be true, you are falsely accusing me of something that I have not done.

Now by all means, pick me apart, pick my views apart. But let's do it on another thread. My morbid curiosity is getting to me. Can we restrict posts to the issue of the OP? Please???
