       The Oxford English Dictionary states that to encourage is to inspire with courage. Encouragement would be the process that we encourage with.

Many times I hear preachers get into the pulpit and speak about their desire to encourage people, and then proceed to tell how God has called them to encourage the brethren. A well known evangelist told me that my job as an evangelist is simply to encourage the pasto...

       It should also be remarked about the "subtilty" of modern (per)versions in even just those three examples.  In Gen. 3:1 the NASV, NIV, NRSV and ESV have "crafty", the NKJV and HCSV "cunning"; in 2 Sam. 13:3 the RSV, NRSV, NKJV and ESV have "crafty", the NASV, NIV and HCSV "shrewd"; in Prov. 7:10 the NIV and NKJV have "crafty", the ASV, RSV, NRSV and ESV "wily", the NASV "cunning", and the HCSV "havin...

   Not long after I was converted to Jesus Christ, someone gave me an Oxford Printing of a New Scofield Bible that I carried for several years. I would hear preachers preach about the good old Scofield Bible and they, through preaching, reassured me that I carried the absolute best Bible that man could produce.

     That Bible was well worn, and read many times from cover to cover, and yet I had no idea of what was truly...
