Currently the new edition is only available on the LDS web site, and the print version will be available in August While many of the changes seem to be minor, some are obviously being made to counter historical problems raised by church critics. In an online survey of about 3, disaffected Mormons, conducted by Open Stories Foundation, revealed:
These "contradictions" are easily resolved if one accepts the Trinitarian view of God. Allow me to repost a reply which addressed a similar point, and in doing so, resolves this contradiction In a previous post, someone attempts to discredit the deity of Christ by appealing to John 1: How shall the Christian respond?
Well, let's consider the statement that "No man hath seen God. Sarai says "You are the God who sees me," for she said, "I have now seen the One who sees me" Gen Actually, this is a problem only for those who deny the deity of Christ while claiming to follow the teachings of the Bible.
Let's look again at John 1: This interpretation not only seems to follow naturally from this verse, but is also quite consistent with the Logos doctrine taught in John 1. Recall, it is the Logos who mediates between God and man, and who reveals God to man.
Jesus would later say, "Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. So for the Trinitarian, there is no Bible contradiction. This can be seen from many perspectives, but let's simply consider one from Isaiah 6.
Isaiah "saw the Lord" v 1. Seraphs were praising the "Lord Almighty" v 3. Isaiah is overwhelmed and responds, "Woe to me, I am ruined. For I am a man of unclean lips [this rules him out as the servant in Isaiah 53 ], and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty" v 5.
And who will go for us? Again, the plurality of God is implied. Isaiah asks God to send him, and then God gave him a message to preach. Now it's time to jump to John John claims that the peoples failure to believe in Jesus was a fulfillment of these teachings Isaiah received from the Lord in Isaiah 6.
Then note verse This all fits together beautifully. Isaiah sees the Lord Almighty, yet he sees Jesus' glory. Jesus speaks as a plural being who will go for US. It is the Son who is seen, not the Father. This verse presents no problems for the Trinitarian, and in fact, when studied, serves as a great launching point for finding Christ in the OT.
Prior to the Logos dwelling amongst us and revealing the Father to us, no one had seen the Father.
But because of the Incarnation, we can now cry, "Abba, Father" Romans 8:Breitbart TV is the home of the hottest video on politics, world events, culture, and media. Comprehensive National Football League news, scores, standings, fantasy games, rumors, and more.
Acosta gets his press pass back but Trump is the real winner. Extra, extra, read all about it: CNN’s Jim Acosta has his press pass back.
Last week, the Trump administration yanked the White House reporter’s credential following a silly spat with an intern over a microphone.
The Catholic Church has stood, since its inception, firmly against the use of any artificial methods of contraception. In fact, it is the only Christian institution that, as a whole, has held this teaching consistently for all of Christian history.
Regarding your last paragraph, I have forgotten the details surrounding that. So I decided to re-read some materials. I have summarized an alternative possibility regarding the tension between the gospels regarding the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem and thought it may just another side of the coin.
At this point, the critic's list comes in.
It proposes to demonstrate that the Bible is full of contradictions, and the list of purported contradictions was one such demonstration.
