Re: Sacrafice and Sail On - Book by Philip Lin

Witness Lee on several occasions mentioned the speaking of T. Austin-Sparks in 1957. He loved to tell how how he was translating for TAS but when he mentioned "little Christ, little church", he...

Re: Signs of Decline in LSMs Recovery - Tomes

This is quite an indictment but it proves the Local Church of the 20th century is a whole lot different from the one of the present day.

The former Local Church had a charismatic King Pin who...

Signs of Decline in LSMs Recovery - Tomes

I have ambivalent feelings about the interesting and wide-ranging statistics provided by Nigel Tomes, not that I question them; in fact, I would like to see it compared to other criteria, as well. I...

Re: Immuno_oncology

I believe the New Revised Standard Version was the first to go with the "gender neutral" approach for its publication in 1989. It was produced by the American Bible Society. Perhaps the NIV followed...

Re: The Local Church Lexicon ó Common Phrases

Translators can never be totally distanced from meanings and have to translate according to their own concepts, like the LSM did. I do not believe they changed the meaning but used the word they...
