Once you download it, the default is KJV and you can add free things to the program to enhance your learning such as commentaries, dictionaries, devotions, graphics, reference books and other bibles.

It can be a little cumbersome to the new user so if you have any questions on how to use it let me know and I'll try to help you out. If you don't have windows on your iMac (which your last post leads me to believe you are using an iMac) or have a way to emulate a windows environment to run the program it also works on iphones and ipads if you have one of those. It looks like something called CrossOver will work but you might have to buy it (Has a free trial)  https://www.codeweavers.com/via/e-sword

Good luck.

Health officials are warning consumers to avoid eating caramel apples after linking the fall treats to a multi-state listeria outbreak that has been linked to at least four deaths.

Officials from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported today that at least 28 people from 10 states, including Minnesota, Arizona and Texas, have been infected with Listeriosis due to Listeria monocytogenes, a bacteria that can cause life-threatening illness.

Of those infected, five died and Listeriosis definitely contributed to at least four deaths, according to the CDC.

I'm sorry, BondServant. I didn't realize that we are, in some ways, prohibited from expressing our views on this website.

Just as John the Baptist was paid little heed 2,000 years ago when he told inhabitants of the Holy Land to make way for the coming of the Lord, it has been the same with me.

Here is something that I wrote in an e-mail to a reporter to The Jerusalem Post, Deborah Danan, in March, 2012, when she asked me for my views on the Christian End Times:

A lesson can be learned from past precedent, I believe, in that history is repeating itself in a very real way: It is my understanding that 2,000 years ago, the Jewish religious leaders in Israel expected a Messiah to appear one day in the form of a powerful Jewish warrior who would liberate Israel from the tyranny of Rome's domination. Instead, Christians today (including myself) believe that Jesus fulfilled these Jewish messianic prophecies as a Sacrificial Lamb who died for the sins of all mankind. Fast forward 2,000 years, and I am confident that the popular Antichrist, Armageddon, etc. scenario that is embraced by millions of Christians today will be similarly shown to be unfounded as I believe that Jesus will return to a world much like the one that we live in today, with its usual ups and downs. This scenario is supported by Christ's prediction in Matthew 24:38 (also from the Olivet Discourse) in which He said that when He returns, people will be in the middle of "eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage," which, to me, sounds like a typical, ordinary day.

you too ignore parts of a post you don't want to address...

are you related to Thad?  SM?

Skeeter, can't tell who you are writing to.
Are you a supporter of the 'divorce for adultery' explanation of the exception clause?

The lambs need to be warned of the wolves who will say Jesus did not mean what he said. Since he said remarriage is adultery 5 times and Paul did so twice, then a challenge to those denying that remarriage is adultery is to demonstrate when is remarriage adultery since Jesus emphasized that to be so.

I agree that everyone needs to be warned of the seriousness of marriage/divorce/and remarriage.  I have been with the same woman my entire life, and so have all of my daughters with one husband.  I have taught them and more than that, lived it, that marriage is until death of one of the spouses.  That being said, let us address the "exception rule" based upon fornication.  I will spend some time this weekend on this thread, the Lord willing.

I would be interested in whose idea this was, and where you actually found this man who essentially does 'relief' massages.

In your opinion, but not in the opinion of the majority of believers who have studied this subject.
I'm with you.  I know no one who reads it like that.  Is this some new fangled (or old) English sentence structure?

how about 1 Cor 7:15 ?

"But if the unbeliever departs, let him depart; a brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases"

anyone try to unscramble scrambled eggs?

The liberty Paul speaks of in 1 Cor 7:15 is merely the liberty to be separated from the unbelieving spouse without feeling guilty because you are not with them and therefore not any longer making an effort to bring them to Christ. Once they leave, then there is nothing much more to do than accept their refusal, at least temporarily, to receive Christ. In 1 Cor 7:39 we see the woman is in fact bound from remarriage for as long as her husband is alive. Remarriage is adultery as Jesus emphasized 5 times and Paul twice.

Scrambled eggs huh?
Well it is not so dramatic. The couple who entered ignorantly into their second marriage while their first and lawful spouse is still alive merely need to have a pow-wow and humble themselves to admit to their grievous error and sin. In many cases this means identifying a pastor or multiple pastors who they became the victim of, by heeding their immature counsel. If children are involved, the situation can be explained to them but with more effect as they gain more maturity to understand and respect what Jesus taught. Arrangements should be made so the children can spend lots of quality time with both parents separately. But that marriage, the adultery, has to END. The state of living in the condemnation of being adulterers has to END. 
It is the mercy of God when couples who had entered adultery by remarriage are able to come to grips with the reality of their situation and so graciously, in the fear of God, agree that they erred very grievously, and so agree to repent of the adultery and so end that unlawful marriage in God's eyes.

The love of God constrains those with understanding to warn those who are living in that state of condemnation.
The termination of that adultery is very possible. God gives grace to do what we in our own strength feel we are unable to do.
His grace is sufficient. Those in that situation can trust in that strength of grace to get them through what it takes to repent of such an adulterous situation. If they will but take the first step, God will hold your hand to the end. The relief of a good conscience, when it is all over, by itself, will be worth it.

Yes, I know that is what I have been saying ad nauseam.  Every single sola scripturist believes as you do and everyone has a different gospel, just like you.

I would love to go one on one with you concerning the gospel Paul preached.  I would love for you to start a thread and give EOC definition of the gospel and let us test it with the WORD OF GOD.  I am convinced, yea know, that your gospel is under Paul's curse.
I asked him several times what was the gospel to him - he didn't answer.

Related in relative terms.. Biologically, the human animal is more related to the monkey because our DNA is around 95% the same.. Our physical human animal  bodies are made of the same stuff as all the other animals.

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-closely-related-are-h/

How closely related are humans to apes and other animals? How do scientists measure that? Are humans related to plants at all?
October 23, 2000

Humans, chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans and their extinct ancestors form a family of organisms known as the Hominidae. Researchers generally agree that among the living animals in this group, humans are most closely related to chimpanzees, judging from comparisons of anatomy and genetics.

If life is the result of "descent with modification," as Charles Darwin put it, we can try to represent its history as a kind of family tree derived from these morphological and genetic characteristics. The tips of such a tree show organisms that are alive today. The nodes of the tree denote the common ancestors of all the tips connected to that node. Biologists refer to such nodes as the last common ancestor of a group of organisms, and all tips that connect to a particular node form a clade. In the diagram of the Hominidae at right, the clade designated by node 2 includes gorillas, humans and chimps. Within that clade the animal with which humans share the most recent common ancestor is the chimpanzee.
.
.
.
Using such reasoning, it has been estimated that the last common ancestor of humans and chimpanzees (with whom we share 99 percent of our genes) lived five million years ago. Going back a little farther, the Hominidae clade is 13 million years old. If we continue farther back in time, we find that placental mammals are between 60 and 80 million years old and that the oldest four-limbed animal, or tetrapod, lived between 300 and 350 million years ago and the earliest chordates (animals with a notochord) appeared about 990 million years ago. Humans belong to each of these successively broader groups.
