Deeper Waters Forum Guidelines

Notice The ministries featured in this section of TheologyWeb are guests of this site and in some cases not bargaining for the rough and tumble world of debate forums, though sometimes they are. Additionally, this area is frequented and highlighted for guests who also very often are not acclimated to debate fora. As such, the rules of conduct here will be more strict than in the general forum. This will be something within the discretion of the Moderators and the Ministry Representative, but we simply ask that you conduct yourselves in a manner considerate of the fact that these ministries are our invited guests. You can always feel free to start a related thread in general forum without such extra restrictions. Thank you.

Deeper Waters is founded on the belief that the Christian community has long been in the shallow end of Christianity while there are treasures of the deep waiting to be discovered. Too many in the shallow end are not prepared when they go out beyond those waters and are quickly devoured by sharks. We wish to aid Christians to equip them to navigate the deeper waters of the ocean of truth and come up with treasure in the end.

We also wish to give special aid to those often neglected, that is, the disabled community. This is especially so since our founders are both on the autism spectrum and have a special desire to reach those on that spectrum. While they are a special emphasis, we seek to help others with any disability realize that God can use them and that they are as the Psalmist says, fearfully and wonderfully made.

  • Dealing with a KJV-Onlyist

    So last night Allie found herself in a discussion on Facebook Messenger with a KJV-onlyist.

    Then I took over....

    I've invited the guy here.

    As a graduate of a certain KJV-only college, I'll be very interested to see if he shows up.

      I am wondering if he believes the KJV is the inspired version for the English language or (and?) it can be used to "correct" the Hebrew/Aramaic/Greek.

        Well he wasn't very kind at first to the Mrs. last night when he started engaging her.

        Yeah. Let him have it for that one. You don't insult my Allie and get away with it. Not on my watch.

          There's not going to be a punch up is there?

            Probably not. He did apologize last night, but he sure started off on a terrible foot.

              Oh ok. Yeah things can get hot and heavy on this issue.
              I hope he joins. I'm not sure if we even have a KJV Onlyist in TWEB right now(?)

                  Do the KJV-onlyists think that Jesus and Paul spoke 16th-17th century English?
                  If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

                        Not really. He'll quickly throw the KJV under the bus if a particular passage doesn't support his YEC outlook. Psalm 104: 6-9 comes to mind.

                        The KJV reads
                        Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains. At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away. They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.

                        Some other translations have the mountains moving rather than the waters, for instance the ESV:
                        You covered it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains. At your rebuke they fled; at the sound of your thunder they took to flight. The mountains rose, the valleys sank down to the place that you appointed for them.

                        Jorge prefers the latter to what the KJV and some others say.

                              No. Sometimes people claim KJV people say it as part of a strawman argument against them but I've never seen any evidence that the statement "if Paul used the KJV it's good enough for me" has ever been seriously used.
