TODAY’S BLOG ENTRY - © - JULY 19, 2018
WORDS  MEAN  THINGS …WRAPPING IT UP

      The current series of blogs began April 12 in response to this emailed suggestion:

    Brother Mc Lean,  An idea for you: a series on common theological terms found in the Bible and used in Christendom, and how (or if) the align with each other. You could define each term at the Bible does, providing evidence for that meaning (or multiple meanings if contexts warrant), while taking into account traditional mis-definitions that people are likely more familiar with.

    In your hands, with your clear style of communication, letting the reader view such terms first through an academic lens, then shifting to a practical angle and perhaps even devotional one, it has the potential to be a series of great worth to many...as your next book writes itself!

      We worked our way through the alphabet, (yesterday’s word was ‘zealous’), and here we are, 88 days later, needing to double back on a half dozen words readers have suggested. That gives you about a week, if you have a word your like added to the list.

       This would also be an excellent time for you to suggest a topic for the next blog series.  Each blog runs about 300 words and it would be good if the subjects you suggest have enough to them that there could be a hundred or so installments.

       Blog subjects covered over the last four years or subjects covered in my books would not be suitable but that leaves a lot of territory open for consideration.  

         Please use the comment form on this page or email me at discerningtimes@aol.com to communicate your suggestions.

       Thank you…. Quite a few of you read this space every day and quite a few of you copy and print the blogs and put them in folders and binders.   My prayer is that these blogs ‘adorn the doctrine’ while providing solid information in a way that makes sense.  

       Titus 2:10  Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.

MOST RECENT RADIO BROADCASTS

Make arrangements with your local station to air this program in your area.
This program has seen souls saved and saints edified since 1980.




It was back in September 1980 that I produced my first radio program on a reel-to-reel recorder that stood eight feet tall.  The mechanics have changed, but radio remains a most effective means by which to speak to people as if it were one-on-one. Over the 38+ years of broadcasting the results have always been there, perhaps because my program is very different from any and all the other Christian programming out there: give it a try!!


TODAY’S  BEST SNAIL-MAIL

Greetings Pastor McClean !

…you made mention of how many words that the NIV left out? Please refresh my memory.

…also do you have a price list on your publications?

Thank you: but first, its McLean not McClean

Second, you could have easily looked right here on my web site for the list of our books.  See at the top of this page where it says ‘BOOKS’ ? That is meant to be a helpful hint.

Third, you could have found out the KJB has 788,280 words, the NIV 726,109 which is 62,171 fewer, with about two mouse clicks… but why should you do the work when you’ve got me???  I’ve got all sorts of time.
