... we don`t have KJVs here, just poorly done translations where Jesus is called "the Servant of God", rather than the Son of God, where there is no 1. John 5:7 which clearly says Jesus is God etc etc...
How do you determine which translations are "poorly done"? It sounds like you're choosing the KJV as "correct" because it tells you what you want to hear - e.g. that "Jesus is God". How do you know that the other translations aren't more accurate?

That`s the Holy Spirit issue, which can`t be debated with the unbeliever..not that I`m accusing you.
Okay, let's assume that I am a believer. Let's assume that I believe exactly the same as you do.
The only difference is that I don't understand how to determine which translations are "poorly done".
What do you tell a new believer about how to tell which translations are most accurate?

It doesn't really matter what God's view of time is. The Bible was written for humans, so only a human view of time makes sense.

God does view time differntly than humans....
If you're suggesting that God can't view time the way humans do, you're suggesting a very limited God.
My point was that if the Bible is a communication from God to mankind, then the view of time in the Bible would have to be a human view.
There is a great difference between prophetic time and regular time....
Terms like "prophetic time" are usually made up to make it look like prophecies have been fulfilled when they really haven't.
But prophecy is another topic.

We have some threads on prophecy and somebody (probably not me) will be glad to eat you alive point out how you are mistaken.
