“And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words.” Mark 12:13.
Whenever you write or speak, there will always be those who ignore the intent of your purpose and watch for an opening to ascend to the platform or to create some issue totally unrelated. Recently I received an accusation from a young man who had never read my works or heard my sermons on the subject of the King James Bible. Rather, he responded to someone else who had contacted him. His friend must be brave to have someone write for him. This is always the way the terrorist work. His criticism can be read at the end of the blog on, What Is Means To Be A Bible Believer. Dr.Jack Hyles said, “Issue people are people who lack in leadership, They only appear to have leadership when they have some issue going.”
As one can see from the blog, I was attempting to establish the difference between faith and interpretation. One may have strong faith and still be in error on interpretation. They are not the same. Just because we have faith in an infallible Bible, does not mean that we are infallible. I made that point clear. Many of the brethren are confused about this.
I believe I hold in my hand the inerrant, infallible, preserved Word of God in the King James Bible. You will notice I said, “I believe…” I continued by saying if I held the originals of the Old and the New Testaments, it would still require the simple faith instilled in me by my mother.
Now, if anyone can write of this subject without using the word “believe” or one of its synonyms, we would love to hear from them. The Word always precedes faith.
Now, to those who scan articles to catch me in my words, good luck. Also, those who think the article “smells like the apostasy…” need a nose job so they will know the difference between apostasy and grace. Proverbs 6:18,19. Proverbs 26:5. Proverbs 18:13. Moreover, the smell could be something on your shoe. Be sure and check before you take your next step.
Pastor Ken Blue was born in Boswell, Ark. In 1955 he accepted Christ as his Savior. He and his wife Joyce were married in 1955. They have 5 children. He graduated from Midwestern Baptist Bible College in 1969 and started the Open Door Baptist Church in Lynnwood, Wa. where he pastored for 39 years. Because of health issues (ALS) he was forced to resign as pastor. It is his desire to continue to be used of God to help pastors and believers through this ministry.
