Help with "Well Said"

Said at Southeastern has been... well, pretty silent lately. If there are any SEBTS bloggers out there that are interested in helping to maintain the "Well Said" portion of this website, send me an email or leave a comment with contact info and I'll be in touch.

Glenn, about how time consuming would it be? I was wondering why Said @ SEBTS was so inactive, and had not added me to the list of students blogging at SEBTS.

I even asked Tony at Said at Southern, and he said that he handed it over.

Anyway, I would like to help. I guess we would need to develop an updated list of SEBTS student bloggers. I can also start using Google Reader to scour the blogosphere for 'Well Said' posts.

I blog at Elect Exiles on Wordpress and have a blogger account also. kschaub.blogspot dot com. If you would like some help, send me an email at schaubk at gmail dot com. I am fairly free in the early part of the week to update it, but I have a full-time job during the week and preach on Sundays, so I can't guarantee keeping things going every day.

I am in Texas right now. I lived a year in Wake Forest before moving back home for a few years to wait on my fiancee to graduate from Wayland Baptist. We plan moving back to SEBTS in July, so look me up around then . . . if you're there.

For the Gospel,

Kevin

Hi Kevin,
Thanks for responding. It really shouldn't be too time consuming. I'm just looking for people that would post a short 'blurb' when they read a good post from a SAID@SEBTS blog.

I am an editor for Christian.com which is a social network dedicated to the christian community. As I look through your web site I feel a collaboration is at hand. I would be inclined to acknowledge your website offering it to our users as I'm sure our baptist audience would benefit from what your site has to offer. I look forward to your thoughts or questions regarding the matter.

How many steps did you complete to receive the "free gift" of Salvation?

Is this a "free" gift?

I tell my child that I have an incredible gift for him. However, in order for the gift to be his, he must:

1. apologize for his bad behavior and sincerely mean it.
2. he must commit to change his ways and follow MY ways for the rest of his life.
3. he must make a decision that he WANTS my gift.
4. he must then approach me, hold out his hands, ask me for the gift, and cooperate with me, as I place the gift into his hands.

If he does all this, he will receive his gift. But...if he chooses to reject my gift, I will damn him to HELL!

Now is this "gift" really a gift...or a REWARD for making the right decision?

No, that is NOT a gift.
.
This is a gift: "Dear Son, I have a gift for you. Here it is. I love you more than words can describe", and then I place the gift in my son's lap. No strings attached. The gift is his. He did nothing to receive it. I did everything.

THAT is a gift!

So what is God's free gift? It is the whole salvation package: faith, belief, repentance, forgiveness of sins, atonement, and eternal life. It is ALL free... to those whom God has predestined, before the world existed, for reasons we do not know, to be his children.

BIBLE TRANSLATIONS


The thought process of some Christians is puzzling to say the least. Why do some believers in Christ question that God has the power to guide men to translate Bibles that are inerrant, trustworthy, accurate, faultless, reliable, infallible.

Some of the same Christians who believe the following miracles of the Bible, doubt that God can produce an inerrant translation of the Bible.

They believe that Aaron's staff became a serpent. (Exodus 7:10-12) However they do not believe that translations of the Bible are trustworthy.

They believe Jesus was resurrected from the dead. (John 21:14) However they do not agree that Bible translations are inerrant.

They believe that the dead man Elisha stood up on his feet. (2 Kings 13:20-21) However they doubt that Bible translations are infallible.

They believe Jesus brought Lazarus back from the dead. (John 11:37-44) However they do not affirm that Bible translations are reliable.

They believe that God turned Lots wife into a pillar of salt. (Genesis 19:26) However they are not convince that God has given us a translation of the Bible that is accurate.

Even those who state that the King James translation is the only accurate translation, believe that Mark 16:16 does mean what is says: They say "Has been baptized shall be saved" actually means, "Has already been saved before they were baptized." The assert that Acts 2:38 actually means "Be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ because your sins have already been forgiven." They really do not trust the KJV either.

Ninety-nine percent of the Bible translations are accurate, trustworthy, inerrant translations of God's word.

A few of my favorites are New American Standard Bible, King James Version, New King James Version, English Standard Version, and New International Version. There are also many other reliable translations.
