Not What I Wanted

February 12, 2009. Day Forty-three. Thursday. I would call this my worst time of the year. I did talk about the gospel to two men that I'm not sure believe a true gospel, that would both profess to be saved. However, for talking to them, I didn't go as far as I would have wanted.

  1. I talked to one lady who doesn't have a church that she attends regularly. She seems saved.

    I also talked to a Episcopalian man. We talked for a while from the definition of the gospel to the text issue. He believed the gospel is feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, and clothing the stranger (Matthew 25), rather than what I was doing in preaching salvation through Jesus Christ (I have heard this before). He does not like the translation of the King James Version. He prefers the Goodspeed. He knows Greek and Hebrew. He, of course, believes that all churches came from the Roman Catholic Church.
    The conversation with him got to a point where I was getting nowhere with him. He thinks I'm deceived; I think he's deceived.


    1. What do you know about Episcopalians?
    2. What do you know about "Goodspeed"?
    3. He never really stated his view of the text. What do you think his view of preservation and inspiration is? (Now, watch what you say, because the non-preservationists might come over here and debate you. Just kidding. Please say what is necessary.)
