  • Tony Fowler on 1 Timothy 1
    What is menstealer and perjured person? Seventh-Day Adventists use their own Bible and it interpret it very different from KJV. Where did they get the ...for mother's, for murderers, for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders,...

    My research is homosexuality, where did other Bible get practicing homosexuality. It didn't say that here on KJV. I am looking for evidence that it violates the Ten Commandments. Thanks

    Hi Tony,

    So you must be looking at 1 Timothy 9-10. "Menstealer" is the Greek word "andrapodistais" Strongs G405 with definition of " 1. a slave-dealer, kidnapper, man-stealer, a. of one who unjustly reduces free men to slavery, b. of one who steals the slaves of others and sells them, an enslaver".

    For "perjured person" is the Greek word "epiorkois" Strongs G1965 with definition "1. a false swearer, a perjurer, on oath that is (falsely) a forswearer".

    Where other Bibles get "practicing homosexuality" is stated in two places. 1 Corinthians 6:9 and 1 Timothy 1:10. In the KJV it is "them that defile or abuse themselves with mankind". The Greek word "arsenokoitais or arsenokoitai" Strongs G733 definition "1. one who lies with a male as with a female, sodomite, homosexual".

    Also sexually immoral is "whoremongers" or "fornicator" in KJV in the same two verses as above. The Greek word "pornois" Strongs G4205 "1. a man who prostitutes his body to another's lust for hire, 2. a male prostitute, 3. a man who indulges in unlawful sexual intercourse, a fornicator".

    Hope that helps.

    God Bless.
