Churches or temples? Acts 19:37 KJV
Acts 19:37 For ye have brought hither these men, which are neither robbers of churches, nor yet blasphemers of your goddess.
According to the Bible correctors, in Acts 19:37 we have a terrible mistranslation in the King James Bible. It turns out that "churches" should have been translated "temples".
However, is it not the same thing (when referring to a building)??? I have seen CHURCHES that were called the Baptist TEMPLE and I have been to a church called the Baptist TABERNACLE. I have even seen "TEMPLE Baptist CHURCH".
And if that is not enough to convince the Bible correctors, Christ refers to His body as both a CHURCH and a TEMPLE.
Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of his body.
Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.
And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit. [Context is the CHURCH which is the body of Christ....it grows unto an holy TEMPLE in the Lord]
