Why isn't the word "sodomite" in the NIV?

original post @ Jesus-is-Saviour.com

The answer is because there were homosexuals (what the Bible terms "Sodomites" after the city of Sodom which God destroyed because of it's woeful wickedness) on the NIV translating committee.  One such sodomite was Virginia Mollenkott.  Another sodomite was the Chairman of the NIV Old Testament Committee!  The name of the sodomite?  Dr. Marten H. Woudstra (he's dead now).  The following quote was ascribed to Dr. Woudstra, Chairman of the NIV Old Testament Committee:

"There is nothing in the Old Testament that corresponds to homosexuality as we understand it today"

Is it any wonder why the word "sodomite" is not in the NIV?  It doesn't require too much thinking.  Look below and see what they replaced the word "sodomite" with:


Deuteronomy 23:17- There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.


Deuteronomy 23:17- No Israelite man or woman is to become a shrine prostitute.


1 Kings 14:24- And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.


1 Kings 14:24- There were even male shrine prostitutes in the land; the people engaged in all the detestable practices of the nations the LORD had driven out before the Israelites.


1 Kings 15:12- And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.


1 Kings 15:12- He expelled the male shrine prostitutes from the land and got rid of all the idols his fathers had made.


1 Kings 22:46- And the remnant of the sodomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.


1 Kings 22:46- He rid the land of the rest of the male shrine prostitutes who remained there even after the reign of his father Asa.


2 Kings 23:7- And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.


2 Kings 23:7- He also tore down the quarters of the male shrine prostitutes, which were in the temple of the LORD and where women did weaving for Asherah.

Why is this important? A couple of reasons.

  1. Ever heard of "Sodomy Laws"? It was illegal in the U.S. to be a sodomite (now people call 'em homosexuals); hence SODOMY laws. In a generation or two, people, including Christians who read the NIV, won't know where the word sodomite came from.
  2. This change from sodomite to "shrine prostitute" tells us that homosexuality isn't bad, there are just some homosexuals doing bad things. This sentiment has been expressed by a number of pro-sodomite individuals who claim Christ. They are deceiving themselves for the scripture says the effeminate and abusers of themselves with mankind won't inherit the kingdom of heaven

"...the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, and the Prince of Peace."

Isaiah 9:
6. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, the everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

What religion could have the audacity to call their prophet the mighty God, the everlasting father, and the prince of peace, other than Christianity?

The bible clearly shows that Jesus is not only a prophet, but the creator!

John 1:
1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2. The same was in the beginning with God.
3. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

12. Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
13. Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
14. In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
15. Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
16. For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
17. And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
18. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.
19. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

Hebrews 1:
1. God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2. Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

Some teach that while Isaiah 9:6 does say Jesus is a mighty god, he doesn't claim to be the ALMIGHTY God, but then I read ...

Rev.1: 8. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Jesus absolutely claims to be the ALMIGHTY God!

What religion has a prophet that claims to be the messiah other than Christianity?

John 4:
21. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
22. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
23. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
24. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
25. The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
26. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.

The world is soon to discover that the LORD of the old testament, Jehovah, is none other than Jesus Christ.

9. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
10. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

Zechariah 13:
6. And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.

Jesus will pour out upon Israel the spirit of grace and of supplications when he comes back, and they recognize the fact that they have been fighting their own redeemer for 2,000 years! Israel will repent and be saved by grace. We all are only saved by grace!

How about you? Are you saved by grace?

The New Age Jesus being presented to the world by the false teachers of the day are selling a false Jesus, relegated to the office of merely another avatar like Krishna, or Buddha, or the Bab. But all of these false gods and all the false prophets, like Mohammad, and Joseph Smith, fall laughably short of the truth! Only the Christian Jesus is the Almighty creator supreme Deity, born of human flesh by a virgin! All others are liars, pretenders, and thieves.

Why do we need gun control- when we have mind control?

Obama Throws Tantrum over Gun Control Defeat

President Barack Obama lashed out defiantly and viciously at political opponents who defeated his efforts to expand federal gun regulations today. Standing with families of victims of the Newtown school shooting at the White House, the president claimed that opponents of expanded federal background checks had "no coherent arguments" for their position, and that the "gun lobby" had "willfully lied" in the course of the debate

Relief in Boston as bombing suspect remains in hospital  

 Did you see the crowds applauding the police, ATF, FBI DHS, National Guard, and whoever else came in to lock down every citizen to search for one?  Would you have believed such a militaristic clamp down of a metropolis the size of Boston 5 years ago... with the approval of the masses?
What is the purpose of the 2nd amendment?  I'm not a 2nd amendment screamer... but as I understand it... it is to keep us safe from tyranny..  Governmental lockdown to that unprecedented degree might be considered tyranny... for the sake of peace and safety!

Facebook comment (mine)
See how marshal law can be approved by the masses, even welcomed?  Won't be any problem in America for a complete takeover even with a totally armed citizenry.

Smoke and mirrors.

Another facebook comment (mine)

They don't need gun control if they have mind control and I think they just proved that.  I think the whole gun control thing was smoke and mirrors

And still one more:
I wonder how this would have played out in Indianapolis?  Boston is Georgetown- lite; basically a catholic enclave. Give the masses a couple examples of how they are supposed to act... conditioned response... so the sheep will act like expected 

To understand where I am coming from, please consider this links information.  Do your own search.

“The Jesuits had gained much information over the years on the effects of trauma on the human mind. They gained that information from such things as the Spanish Inquisition and what the Crusaders had done They learned how people were easily led once they've been severely traumatized and they had been keeping records of that information for many, many years. This information was merged with what the CIA had gleaned from the Hitler/Himler research of WWII. By combining their efforts and information, mind control capabilities increased dramatically.

    I was subjected to occult rituals in keeping with the "reverse psychology" programming This "reversal" of the Catholic mass into a Satanic rite had an enormous impact on me because throughout my mind control victimization, I was manipulated by those things that I held most dear. I was manipulated by my religion, by my patriotism, and after my daughter Kelly was born, by my maternal instincts.

    As a child, I was right there when the CIA was merging with the Catholics. I witnessed and experienced so much and even though I didn't consciously comprehend it then, through the deprogramming process I have recorded conversations photographically that I overheard surrounding the trauma.

    I was taken routinely to Mackinaw Island, Michigan. Mackinaw Island is a political retreat because it is located between the US and Canadian borders. And it is where the Michigan governor's mansion is located. It was there that I was subjected to the sexual perversions of certain politicians like Gerald Ford. I'm not saying Gerald Ford is a pedophile, a person who just rapes children.
Instead, Gerald Ford is what I refer to as "tri-sexual"--he'll "try" anything with anybody, any age, any time, any where, it doesn't matter to him, as long as he can be in control. He had a perversion for power.
    It was in Mackinaw Island that I first met then-Prime Minister of Canada, Pierre Trudeau, a professed Jesuit. Through conversations that I overheard between him and Governor Romney, I learned how the CIA and the Catholics were merging their information for NWO controls.

    Michigan's Governor George Romney was very much interested in implementing mind control of the masses. He wanted to bring the Satanic rituals of child abuse that were proliferating in the Catholic Church into the Mormon church. He wanted a robotic society growing up within the Mormon church so that they would give more money to the NWO effort."

 For the rest of the post go to:

I believe most, if not all the perpetrators of the horrible attacks-  Columbine killers Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris, Jared Lee Loughner ( of senator Gabrielle Gifford fame), Adam Lanza (Sandy Hook), James Holmes (as the Joker- the Colorado Batman movie killer) were set up stooges of mind control for many reasons.  I think they were used to condition us into submission.

 What does the bible say about the coming of the antichrist?
1Th 5:1  But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
1Th 5:2  For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
1Th 5:3  For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
1Th 5:4  But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
1Th 5:5  Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

Dan 8:23  And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
Dan 8:24  And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.
Dan 8:25  And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

 Could any government be so evil as to purposely deceive their own populous?  Yes, I jest.

I am not alone in my assessment.

Are You REALLY Christ-Like?


Mat 7:21  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 7:22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Mat 7:23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Mat 7:24  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
Mat 7:25  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
Mat 7:26  And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
Mat 7:27  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

What sayings of His is He talking about?  The sayings of the Sermon on the Mount.  Matt. Chapters 5-7. 

We should look at some specifically; to air out the doctrines we have picked up from the “church” that is not His sayings.

Mat 5:13  Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

If we are not living this life as He has laid out for us, we are no good to the kingdom, and chance being cast out.

Mat 5:22  But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

Christian believers need to be careful about trash talking other believers they disagree with.  Our doctrines separate us mostly because we are not following His doctrines.  If we agree with Christ, we will agree with each other.

Mat 5:38  Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:
Mat 5:39  But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
Mat 5:40  And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also.
Mat 5:41  And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.
Mat 5:42  Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.
Mat 5:43  Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.
Mat 5:44  But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
Mat 5:45  That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
Mat 5:46  For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?
Mat 5:47  And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
Mat 5:48  Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

We know that Jesus was tempted in all points like us, just prior to this sermon in Matt. Chapter 4.  He was tempted with 3 temptations .

                            The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.
Heb 4:15  For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

1Jn 2:15  Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

1Jn 2:16  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

We have a pretty good handle on the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes…but fail to recognize the Pride of Life in our own experience, too often.  Jesus just displayed areas that we fail in it.

In a court of Law, you can be represented by your advocate, a lawyer, or you can represent yourself.  Hard to have Jesus as your advocate if you are always defending yourself.  Do you feel a need to "stand up for yourself", refuse to be put down or abused without striking out, fighting back?  What did Jesus do?

Isa 53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

We all know the Lord’s Prayer by heart, but do we understand it?

Mat 6:9  After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Mat 6:10  Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Mat 6:11  Give us this day our daily bread.
Mat 6:12  And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
Mat 6:13  And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
                                  To make sure we understand Jesus explains...
Mat 6:14  For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
Mat 6:15  But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.

Mat 7:24  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: …

Hey preppers, and survivalists,  are you Christian?  This is a point of personal struggle for me.  I am SOOOO tempted to stock up on survival food and ammo (but I don't own a gun) that I am actively portraying a LACK of the faith Jesus talks about next;

Mat 6:25  Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Mat 6:26  Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

Mat 6:31  Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
Mat 6:32  (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
Mat 6:33  But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Biblical Christianity is radical.  It takes faith in God.  What is our faith in? 

Mat 6:34  Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Mat 7:19  Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
Mat 7:20  Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
Mat 7:21  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 7:22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
Mat 7:23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

To be Christian is to be Christ-like.  We have to take an honest look at our walk and judge ourselves.  Are we following His precepts?  Are we justifying ourselves?  If we are serious about heaven, and being disciples of His, we need to repent, die to the sin of the Pride of Life, become humble, meek, and of a poor spirit, or we are deceiving ourselves.  We are to work, if capable, but trust that our reward comes from our Father who art in heaven.

  Mat 7:24  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them,

God Bless.

Do religious conservatives make lousy tippers?

For the article, click this link:  Do religious conservatives make lousy tippers?

This post is NOT friendly toward Christianity.  It is the Christians fault, though.  "If you can't afford to tip at least 15%, you can't afford to eat out", is what my pastor (Irvin Baxter Jr. of EMDTIME fame)  used to preach.  Your witness is destroyed publically when you act as the "Christians" in this article act.

I have eaten after church with some believers, and was appalled at the way they treated the wait staff, and the public in general.  I vowed to not be eating with them in public again, to protect my own reputation as a Christian.

Put Ending the Fed Up for Debate

April 1, 2013 RSS Feed Print

Steven Horwitz is a Mercatus Center Affiliated Senior Scholar and the Charles A. Dana Professor of Economics and department chair at St. Lawrence University in Canton, NY.

This December will mark the 100th anniversary of the opening of the Federal Reserve. As we have seen in recent years, there is no institution of economic policy with more power and less transparency than the Fed.

The Fed has almost never been held accountable for how it has performed. We have simply assumed that we need a central bank and trusted those in charge to make the right decisions. But the Great Recession may have changed that.

Congressman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, has proposed creating a bi-partisan Centennial Monetary Commission (H.R. 1176) that would engage in a formal performance review of the Fed, exploring both how well it has met its stated goals and what those goals should be. This is an excellent, and long overdue, idea.

The Fed itself emerged from a National Monetary Commission created in the aftermath of the Panic of 1907 to examine the problems with the previous banking system. Scholars who have compared the Fed's record to the National Banking System that it replaced have found the Fed's performance to be worse.

In its first two decades, the Fed generated a wartime inflation that led to a sharp, though short, recession in 1920-21, and then contributed to the 1920s boom that ended with the onset of a recession in 1929. The Fed then allowed the money supply to fall by 30 percent over the next three years, turning that recession into a very deep depression that would last for another decade.

Since World War II, the Fed's record has been one of consistent inflation that has led to a series of recessions, culminating in the housing boom of last decade and the Great Recession from which we are still struggling to recover. That inflation has also distorted the price formation process, making it more difficult for entrepreneurs to use those prices to create wealth.

This never-ending inflation has also reduced the real value of household savings and other assets. The frequency and depth of the resulting recessions have thrown the U.S. economy into periodic bouts of high unemployment, devastating families in the process.

The challenges facing the Fed as it tries to get the money supply right are but a smaller version of those facing national economic planning of the sort that has failed across the world. Combine that with the fact that most central banks were created by political compromise and were intended to serve the government's desire for revenue—and not to solve imagined problems with markets that textbooks invented as rationales after the fact—and the Fed's miserable record is no surprise.

Contrary to the conventional wisdom, there are alternatives to the status quo to consider: Different macroeconomic targets the Fed could adopt, some version of the gold standard, or eliminating the Fed completely in favor of a system of true competition in money production. Economists and historians have compelling arguments for each of these, and one advantage of the Centennial Monetary Commission is that it would provide a platform for open discussion of all of them.

With the damage it has caused in its 100 years, no task could be more important than asking whether the Federal Reserve System and its current policies are the best way to ensure a stable currency and sustainable long-term economic growth. Regardless of what comes from it, the Centennial Monetary Commission would at least provide a venue for asking a series of long-overdue but necessary questions about the Fed's performance and goals.

Biblical Christianity is suspicious of the timing of this "all of the sudden" appearance of these outward displays by the media to change the way we do financial business.
Especially interesting to my paranoid mind, is the rise of the Bitcoin and its success.  Geeky types are rushing to an electronic form of money that is showing to be possibly more stable and convenient than other currency. 
What do they think will replace the current form of currency?  Think "chip" electronic transactions might be more stable?  Think that with the new "Pope" pushing for less opulence and social transition to more even distribution of the wealth might have anything to do with the scripture that says the false prophet will cause all to recieve a mark that without it you won't be able to buy or sell?
Don't be too quick to rejoice over the possible downfall of the FED!  It may have been in the plan the whole time.  Remember, these world planners play a long game.
