    What Bible Do You Use in the Pulpit?

    Not asking specifically which version, but the actual physical bible you (or your Pastor) uses in the pulpit.

    This is the one I use, a NKJV Thompson-Chain Reference Bible.

    Pastor, Ellisville Presbyterian Church, ARP
    Ellisville, Mississippi

    ‎‎"Ministers of the Gospel, when dispensing the truths of God, must preach home to their own souls, as well as unto others. Sir's, we do not deliver truths or doctrines to you, wherein we ourselves have no manner of concern. No, our own souls are at the stake, and shall either perish or be saved eternally, as we receive or reject these precious truths which we deliver unto you. And truly, it can never be expected that we will apply the truths of God with any warmth or liveliness unto others, unless we first make a warm application thereof to our own souls. And if we do not feed upon these doctrines, and practise these duties, which we deliver to and inculcate upon you, though we preach unto others, we ourselves are but castaways." -- Ebenezer Erskine, "The Assurance of Faith", pg. 8

    "The heart is the main thing in true religion...It is the hinge and turning-point in the condition of man's soul. If the heart is alive to God and quickened by the Spirit, the man is a living Christian. If the heart is dead and has not the Spirit, the man is dead before God." (J.C. Ryle)

    Our best marks can contribute nothing to our justification, ...that is proper to faith. Faith cannot lodge in the soul alone, and without other graces; yet faith alone justifies before God.--G. Gillespie

    Thomas Nelson KJV Reference Bible. First Bible I purchased after God saved me. Still my favorite, even though I have many other translations and editions. It even has a custom hand-formed binding because the original bonded leather wore out. Now it has Tyvek-reinforced cardboard:

    But, I do bring my Biblia Sacra (Hebrew and Greek) as well from time to time, and that one I had bound in leather by Norris Bookbinding.

    What pulpit do you use in the Bible?
    O my God, incline thine ear, and hear; open thine eyes, and behold our desolations, and the city which
    is called by thy name: for we do not present our supplications before thee for our righteousnesses, but
    for thy great mercies.O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine
    own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name.
    - Daniel 9

    Repentance follows. In other words, people must condemn themselves and then renounce and despise themselves so they can beseech God to refashion them in His image, which they have erased. That is our starting point, if we wish to repent properly, not as the papists, who have abused true repentance by turning it into fasting on a Wednesday and muttering or performing some affectation or other. We must begin at a higher level by yielding ourselves to God, acknowledging our total spiritual poverty and grieving over our faults. Likewise, what belongs to our human nature must be put to death so God can reign in us. That is what repentance is. [Calvin, Serm, Acts pp.6-7]
