    Thanks for your answer. By the way, I really love your Agape series. Have you ever tackled the subject of imputed or accounted righteousness that God gives to us?

    How do we answer our Catholic friends/family who says that our version KJ, NKJ or any other non-Catholic Bible is not accurate, not inspired, not authorized etc...? Thanks

    I'm sometimes dissatisfied with my local United congregation because we seem to focus entirely on keeping ourselves "unspotted" from the sins of the world while seemingly ignoring the rest of James' admonition in verse 1:27 to visit orphans and widows in their affliction. We tend to look around our congregation and maybe there's a couple elderly who we talk to at services or even visit them at home and that's it. And there are no orphans, at least no young ones in our midst, so we conclude there's nothing to be done. The world isn't being called now, so we don't help widows and orphans who aren't a part of our Church. Maybe there's an occasional sermon mentioning we should do this on our own, but there's no Churchwide event where we collective help widow/orphans. So we stay in our comfortable pews feeling satisfied that we're practicing the whole gospel because we're there on a Saturday. Meanwhile, we're living in cities where there's a multitude of homeless people, people struggling with addictions, people struggling with various mental illnesses and various other social problems that stem from personal abandonment. Why don't we as self-proclaimed real Christians do more?
