By way of introduction RJ will do... To go where few others have gone before is to the texts themselves... After 37 years of preaching and teaching the division amongst brethren is still all to apparent. Perhaps this division, “by their fruits are they known” serves as the icon of protestant Christianity. With now 50 English editions of the Bible the elephant in the room is the texts themselves... The awaking that is asked for... will no doubt come when the texts themselves become our authority and our English translation is made subordinate to the words the Holy Spirit once spoke... Such forums as these are indeed helpful... We hope we can learn and contribute...
