    I have video of evangelists and elders using N.I.V. bibles in different churches Turned to fables.
    In newer translated bibles fables is replaced with the word myth.
    There is a difference between fables and myths.
    Even at the codex sinitrous website at 2 Tim 4:3-4 it clearly reads fables.
    There must be sound and unsound doctrine.
    The kjv bible is the word of God proven.

    there are many videos were men are turned to fables that I can post...
    Psalms 12 is proven true as well..

    Psalms 12:6-7 King James Version (KJV)
    6 The words of the Lord are pure words: as si

    See now O man: Stand fast by the repentance given thee by the grace of GOD, my Holy Father, for it is GOD'S perfect will that ye perish not. Verily, verily I say unto thee, as written in the Holy Scriptures, And it shall be when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What is this? that thou shalt say unto him, By strength of hand the LORD brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage:

    When I first started reading this I truly felt I was reading my own thoughts. Very well written my friend. Bless my friend
    I am inspired by this scripture written by the apostle paul. it has a deep abiding spirit of confirmation of the serious work that is before us,for those who are called to bare witness to the truth, and the task of spreading the gospel of jesus christ...i just enjoy the spiritual food of his words in 2019 they are so real and relevant in today's world and it has enlightened me as well.
  • Gary
    We meet again. Very well said. Your words are encouraging. I lean on the Lord for strength, whether it is written, through praying, or just talking to him. I pray for the evil people because their souls are in the hands of the devil.
  • Apostle Ebony Carter
    I read this with confirmation to what Timothy was writing here. We see and are experiencing the identical attitude in this present time 2019. Know we are God witnesses and will experience the same thing our brethren did in Jesus Christ time. May we continue to fight the good fight of faith , love the brethren and close any demonic doors to satan. He s rejected knowing his weakness. Moving forw

    Verse 5 We want to share the good news and make sure that we fully accomplish our ministry. The best way to do this is by imitating Jesus Christ and the way that he carried out his ministry.

    "I Have Fought The Good Battle Of Faith And I Have Finished The Race." Paul Was Not Saying As We Might Think- I Can See The Cry With Bitterness From His Heart. This Realy Makes Me Cry Because Its Very Difficult Time In Christianity. Thats Why Many People Fade. May Jesus Strengthen Us Like Paul, 254702123818
  • Jeanie
    Hello my friend. I truly do not see Paul having bitterness in his heart. On the contrary I believe his statements from verses 1-9 shows he believes he did the best he could and it did work. He has minister to many cities and helped start with others new churches. He fought the fight and won. He converted many people and encouraged others to follow him. So I did not see bitterness. I saw much mor

    1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom

    John 6:63
    It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
  • Ivy Johnson
    VS 1-8:(7): Brother Paul is assured, and rightly so, to say: I have Fought a Good Fight: I have Finished my Course; I have kept the Faith! Our Lord knew what great sufferings Paul would encounter for His Cause: What dedication: Humility: Endurance: Realized: KNEW: HE COULD DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENTH HIM! What a testimony: What a Transformation: Only God can make that change.
  • Bruce
    Yes: Most Churches Do Not Preach,Saved by The Blood of The Lamb.They Look and Sound Good(They are Verses 3-4) We are in The Tribulation. Most Say The Tribulation is The Wrath of God, it is Not. Tribulation Started about 2000Yrs. Ago. It's Satan Attacking Believers.Trying to Destroy Truth. Believers are Heavily Persecuted in Other Countries. NOT HERE? Preach How to be Saved. YOU WILL BE. STAND UP
  • Ivy Johnson
    Reading this Chapter, what’s happening today. Thank God for Brother Paul. Our Lord: Brother Paul: suffered: All who name the Name of Jesus shall suffer Persecution. None of us is
    IMMUNED.Suffer with Him: Reign with Him. No CROSS: No CROWN: HALLELUJAH: Jesus is our Example. Expect everyone to like us: Say good things about us: How they treated Jesus: They will treat us much worse.

    Verse 10: Demas left the seeking first of spiritual things o. Favor of material advantages. We must learn to be content and rely on Jehovah God in order to avoid committing the same mistake.

    Verse 3~We are living in a time when many do not want to hear about the Bible or do not respect the Bible.
  • Eutychus
    "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." You and I live in these times. It is more important now than ever, that we prove all things, believe not every spirit, examine ourselves, and be not deceived.
  • A disciple
    "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine;" We should be glad for every opportunity to communicate the grace and knowledge which the Lord has given us; but we understand too that men are free to choose their own way instead of the way of the Spirit if they really want to. If they did so to the Lord "in the green tree" what should we expect from those kind now "in the dry?"

    2 Timothy 4:6-7 6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. This must of been Paul's last Epistles knowing he was going to be put to death. That man kept the faith all the way through his life with Jesus. Praise the Lord.
  • A disciple
    Jesus preached about Hell, and Gehenna, and Damnation of the wicked, and the worm that never dies, and wailing and gnashing of teeth, and about a certain rich man who ended up "Tormented in this flame." "But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him." "..except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish."
  • A disciple
    Steve; EXCELLENT SCRIPTURES, as usual! "WE ARE OF GOD HE THAT KNOWETH GOD HEARETH US; HE THAT IS NOT OF GOD HEARETH NOT US: HEREBY KNOW WE THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH AND THE SPIRIT OF ERROR." When we abide in Jesus, and His Words abide in us, we shall ask what we will and it shall be done unto us: herein is the Father glorified, that we bear much fruit. The good fruit can only come from the good tree!
  • Lu2677
    For the time will come when they will not hold fast to Christ's doctrine, because they covet and gather to themselves many teachers that are "soothsayers", because they have hearts that only want to hear what makes them feel good/special, proud, accomplished, important, safe, puffed up. I worked with a woman who said "When they start preaching about hell, I walk out."
  • A disciple
    Yes! and let's go further. The Father, He who sits upon the throne with the little scroll in His hand; hands the scroll to the Lord Jesus, so He can open the seven seals and look inside and read. John is there in the Spirit. There are seven lamps burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God. Reproaching the Spirit cannot be forgiven, neither in this world, nor in that to come.

    As you can see, "in the name of the Lord Jesus" and "in the name of Jesus" speaks of "in the authority of Jesus." Therefore, when someone is properly baptized, they are baptized in the name of Jesus; that is, by the authority of Jesus. Therefore, when they are properly baptized in the name of Jesus, they should say, "I baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son,and the Holy Spirit.
  • A disciple
    There are no contradictions in the Bible, and it is always a case of our ignorance and/or inexperience that makes us have questions. The term "in the name of" implies power of attorney; so in that sense one does not annul the other; and if we are baptized "in the name of" the Father, it does not conflict with being baptized in the name of the Son and the Holy Spirit; but each part has its purpose.
  • Agbeyei nathaniel amakeme
    You will need to understand that verse of the scripture very will before you will be able to accept why his disciples have to baptize in the name of Jesus,and not in father,son,and holy ghost.
    Now let look at it.Jesus said baptize in the name of the father,son,and holy ghost.Please the emphasis is not father nor son either.The emphasis is in the name of the father and FATHER IS NOT A NAME?Is title
  • Ren
    The proper form of baptism is in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as Jesus designated in Matthew 28:19, "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit." The clear command of Jesus is to baptize this way. Then why do we see so many instances in the New Testament where people were baptized "in Jesus' name"?
  • A disciple
    "...and they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." Now most of us are quite familiar with the really gross errors and sects which are obviously off from the Scriptures. But what also might be meant by; (as the Lord Jesus warned to beware of); the MANY who say all the right things, but are in truth gone aside, and are out of the way? What is, Another Gospel?
  • BSP
    Verse 4 shows that some would turn from the truth and listen to false stories. It is important to stick with the truth and prove what is true to ourselves.
