To be spiritual must I know Greek or Hebrew?

JC

.
People have wrestled with whether we really need to learn the Biblical  languages for a very long time.  https://witnessed.wordpress.com/2013/12/11/the-bible-and-the-greek-language/
 .
No matter how good your intentions Learning Biblical Hebrew is still basically absurd, it has nothing to do with  the reality of knowing better today  the New Testament,
 .
The New Testament the only book that matters to all  today and it was written now  also solely in Greek and not in Hebrew..
 .
Yes  it’s certainly not necessary for Christians to learn the Biblical languages, and that knowing Greek and Hebrew doesn’t divinely make you better at reading the Bible or being a Christian, it does not mean for certainty that you have grasped the meaning of God’s Book (studying God’s Word).
As we know the so called language experts disagree with each other here on the Bible meanings still too.. .Using the biblical languages foes not  exalts Jesus as w know there are still many bad and unsaved Hebrew speaking Jews and still bad, unsaved even  Greek speaking persons. While studying Greek and Hebrew is an important part of much seminary and ministerial training we still do know that these cemeteries tend not to produce Godly, Christ like persons next still.
 .
For all persons  learning a new language expertly  is years taking endeavor, an exhausting, frustrating, and spirit-killing endeavor, one that has been scientifically proven to cause premature hair loss, marital discord, excess  frustration, loss of sleep.. and that is with one language and never mind three..
 .
Did you notice how many of these scholarly type still rarely quote the Bible now too?
 .
There are supposedly some good translations out there that you can help you to understand the Bible more?
Many people who pay close attention to the original texts, have still missed the Gospel meaning  itself. As even the already trained, well educated Bible translators cannot seem to agree with each other. Why? Our modern English Bible  translations are excellent.
Most of the major English translations available today are supposedly superb renderings of the original Greek and Hebrew and yet why is it still that only a few of the readers next do even get saved, get a proper relationship with Jesus Christ and his Holy Spirit?.
 .
We must constantly remind ourselves that we are not studying the original languages; we are studying the Word of God. is an absurd statement still too. The human mind cannot understand any of the Holy Scriptures anyway cause all truths come solely by divine revelations from the Holy Spirit.. if you do not have the Holy Spirit wisdom here you are really still dumb. The Bible also makes it clear that the Spirit is the author of the Bible and that He will help us to understand the His Word  2 Timothy 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.; John 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
 .
Again You do not have to know Hebrew and Greek in order to understand the Bible.
 .
John 7:38: “Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”
 .
Luke 2:40 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
 .
Matthew 13:54 And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?
 .
Mark 6:2 And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?
 .
Luke 21:15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
 .
Acts 6
3 Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.
10 And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake.
 .
Romans 11:33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
 .
1 Corinthians 1
17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
 .
1 Corinthians 2
1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
4 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
6 Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:
7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
 .
1 Corinthians 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
 .
 By the way the too often lying Jews would let you believe you need their help to get to know God better,  they would like to be your false teachers.. your false masters…. this is all demonic  still.. The Jews did not understand even what Jesus had said
 .
Luke 19:43,44: For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.
 .
so in 70 Ad the Romans surrounded Jerusalem. destroyed the temple, and dispersed all the Jews
 .
Matthew 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
 .
Luke 13″35 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.
 .
Acts 1:20 For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.
 .
Most of the old Testament laws are now Obsolete to all Christians even as Jesus Christ had provided a new way, a New Testament here instead… http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2013/09/27/so-what-about-the-ten-commandments/
 ..
The Sacred Name movement consists of those false, cultish persons, groups, and assemblies who use the Hebrew names for God (i.e. Yahweh, Yahvah) and for Jesus (i.e. Yahshua) in the devotion and worship. They have falsely characterized themselves as “the True Worshippers” eschewing the name ‘Christian’ as being of pagan origin. The history of the Sacred Name Cults shows them to be derived of the Millerite sects, the Adventists and the Church of God, and thus from the false prophet William Miller who prophesied the return of Jesus in 1843 and made a subsequent false prophecy concerning 1845. Though his group self destructed by the mid 19th century the followers became the Adventists and later Church of God sects, preserving the strict legalism and false prophetic bents of the original group. The Sacred Name Movement (SNM) is a movement in Christianity that seeks to conform Christianity to its roots in Judaism in practice, belief and worship; This movement seeks to destroy and blot out the name of Jesus… The Sacred Name dogma has enormous errors, Antichrist elements inherent within its beliefs and practices. http://pjmiller.wordpress.com/2009/06/21/the-cult-of-the-sacred-name/
