BIBLE:  How Can You Know You Have A Perfect Copy When You Don’t Have The Original To Compare It To?

Saturday, August 13, 2005 10:57:00 PM CST

 

How Can You Know You Have A Perfect Copy When You Don’t Have The Original To Compare It To?  This is the most challenging and difficult question to answer when it comes to determining the “true text” of the Bible.

BIBLE:  Change In L. F. Nexus’ King James Bible “Position Identifier”

Monday, August 15, 2005 6:12:00 PM CST

Updated Monday, August 15, 2005 7:25:53 PM CST

 

The governing body of the L. F. Nexus, by unanimous consent, has voted to change the L. F. Nexus’ King James Bible position identifiers from “KJV Only” and “KJV Only Complete” to “KJV Final Authority.”  The primary reason for this change is that the new position identifier, “KJV Final Authority,” does NOT rule out “subsidiary translations” of the Bible.  Subsidiary translations are like low-level judges while the King James Bible is like a Justice of the Supreme Court.  In other words, any conflict between translations will be resolved by the King James Bible.  Note that we have NOT changed our position.  We simply have adopted language that more clearly communicates our position.  KJV Final Authority” is abbreviated “KJVX.”  The “X” signifies “the most advanced thinking in the world on the subject of the King James Bible.”

THE L. F. NEXUS CAMPUS:  The L. F. Nexus Is Not A Library

Tuesday, August 16, 2005 11:08:04 AM CST

Updated Saturday, September 10, 2005 7:14 PM CST

 

The L. F. Nexus is not a library, though you will find several libraries here.  The L. F. Nexus is a dynamic, changing world of real-time chaos.  When we make a major discovery we publish the news immediately.  (There are several reasons why we do so.)  This means that sometimes there is temporary unruliness, confusion, and contradiction in details, reports, descriptions, images, etc., etc.  THIS IS REAL LIFE.  Real life is not a neat row of books on a bookshelf, though we have many.  Real life strains credibility at times.  THERE IS ONE THING WE ALWAYS DO, HOWEVER:  WE ALWAYS REPORT THE FACTS AS WE KNOW THEM AT THE MOMENT.

 

Everything we do here at the Nexus falls into one of two categories:

 

  1. THINGS THAT ARE STABLE

 

This includes certain established doctrines of the Bible (the belief in God, the belief that Jesus is the Son of God, etc., etc.), certain established principles of science (the law of gravity, the laws of thermodynamics, etc., etc.), certain routines and procedures, certain schedules, etc., etc.

 

  1. THINGS THAT CHANGE

 

This MIGHT include changes in certain “microdoctrines.”  Now, there are two general philosophies about “doctrinal change.”  One view is that you NEVER change your doctrine.  The other view is that doctrine is WHATEVER YOU WANT IT TO BE.  Well, we DISAGREE with both views.  Here is the “L. F. Nexus Statement of Doctrinal Stability”:

 

THE L. F. NEXUS STATEMENT OF DOCTRINAL STABILITY

 

    1. There are certain doctrines that NEVER change.  These are the great doctrines of Christianity, among them the life, death, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

    1. There are certain “microdoctrines” that MIGHT change.  What is a microdoctrine?  A microdoctrine is “a teaching, other than one of the great doctrines of Christianity SHARED BY ALL CHRISTIANS, that makes no impact whatsoever on the moral and spiritual health and growth of a Christian.”  For example, you might believe that Noah’s Ark was “pointed at both ends” and then later find out it was not.  You might believe that Adam and Eve ate “an ‘American’ apple” and later find out that they did not.  Therefore, it is our position that:

 

It is acceptable for microdoctrines to change.

 

    1. While it is acceptable to change a microdoctrine, one is NEVER allowed to require another person to change their microdoctrine UNTIL:

 

      1. THE OTHER PERSON HAS BEEN INFORMED OF THE CHANGE

 

AND OF

 

      1. THE REASON(S) FOR THE CHANGE

 

AND

 

      1. THESE REASON(S) MUST BE OF SUCH A NATURE THAT ONLY A MADMAN WOULD BE UNPERSUADED BY THEM.
