Yeah. I don’t know Greek, I don’t know Hebrew, but I do know Matthew 7:20 and a host of other verses, and I’ve seen enough of other “versions” to know the difference.
I don’t have a degree in Political Science, either, but Matthew 7:20 (and several more scriptures) is enough wisdom to know which one is the most vile and evil candidate for political power and riches.
I don’t have a degree in climatology, but I know enough about how to learn and discern guided by a love for the truth to be able to tell the hockey stick is a fraud.
Peter and John were “unlearned and ignorant men”, but all the learned and lettered audience “took knowledge of them that they had been with Jesus”.
And you might be surprised sometimes:
And the Jews marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned?–John 7:15
Ha. So they thought. He wasn’t a Sanhedrin regular. No Harvard grad that one.
That’s one Harvard Divinity School graduate that blows the whistle on modern “divinity scholarship” including the Bible language students:
As a Harvard Divinity School graduate, I can testify that these modern seminaries and biblical studies programs are not only full of apostates, but socialists, abortion supporters, sexual perversion advocates, practicing sodomites and lesbians, radical feminists, witches, New Agers, and atheists. Expecting spiritual discernment from such people would be insanity. Comparing biographies of the new version translators to the biographies of the KJV translators that she provides in In Awe of Thy Word, would make the magnitude of this insanity even more clear. In Awe of Thy Word, Riplinger asserts, quite correctly, that we must look to the Holy Spirit to guide us to an understanding of the words of the Bible, and that the very definition of individual words are to be found within the text itself.
