Belgian Biblestudents website 2016 in review

First article for the 2005 November opening of the WordPress site of the Belgian Bible Students - Eerste artikel bij de opening in november 2005 van de WordPress site van de Belgische Bijbel Studenten

First article for the 2005 November opening of the WordPress site of the Belgian Bible Students – Eerste artikel bij de opening in november 2005 van de WordPress site van de Belgische Bijbel Studenten

After our (real) start on WordPress in October 2010 we generated in the first two years not so many viewers, taking it until April 2012 before we really left MSM and Bijbelvorsers Blogspot (started in 2005) aside and started presenting ourself on this other platform. That step forwards on the Mount Everest brought us 3 200 views in 2012 with only 27 new posts.

In 2013 the amount of postings increased up to 87 new postings giving us 7 600 views. One year later there was a little dip with only 63 new postings getting 6 697 views from 4 666 visitors. It seemed we were not so much liked in that turbulent year, having only 19 likes and 19 comments.

2015 got us back on track after some difficult year, not to say the least. 7 683 views from 5 168 visitors where good for the 93 newly published articles.

After 4 247 home page views in 2015, that page could attract 4 285 views, bringing the total views for 2015 up to 8 922 for 5 821 visitors willing to give us 54 likes and 26 comments.

We are pleased we may have found 79 followers in the year 2016 and viewers from all over the world, having most coming from the United States of America 2 909, followed by the Netherlands with 1 213 views and 1 108 views from Belgium. Next comes Great Britain with 524 and France with 226 views, though it was a French article that got most of the views, namely ‘l’ Élection de Matthias’ with 446 views, getting its English version ‘The Election of the apostle Matthias’ 363 views.

In 2016 most energy went into the writing of the comparison of English Bible translations, with the series “Old and newer King James Versions and other translations”. With that series and the article From Bibles and other religious writings and those who witness for Jehovah we do hope English people who think the King James version is the only one true Bible Translation come to see that God always has protected His own Word and that as well in English as in other languages God provided serious good translations of His Divine Word.

Many people may confuse us with Jehovah’s Witnesses and be not pleased with their and our preaching. Therefore 2016 was also a year to reflect on the Witnessing of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, as well on our witnessing, plus on picturing the Governing body. We also gave the word to a former elder of that denomination.

We looked how not only human teaching or human doctrines defiled God’s Word in certain Bible translations and certain Christian denominations, but how 2016 was also the year such human thinking has brought secularism to be very dangerous for freedom of religion and freedom of thought and played with morals and values, (in particular the French values)but that human teachings shall pass away. Though there shall always exist people who shall try to do their utmost best to worship the Only One True God in the best way to please that Host of host.
Concerning that worship we ave our view on Christian worship music and on the lifting of hands at a service, towards the Most High. In a Dutch article we also tackled this subject at From Guestwriters. (Zingen over moeilijkheden en lijden ook noodzakelijk in kerkgemeenschap)

In 2016 also at Stepping Toes we looked at the Bible how it tells us how from nothing and chaos came order, just by the impeccable Word, the Voice in the Void, which brought everything into being but would be also the essential guide for mankind. (Word-Verbum-Logos-Ereyga) and at From Guestwriters we talked about that masterly copied and reproduced Word to feed the minds, to bring the most important translation…

In April we also looked at Stepping Toes at a nice resume of what we have to remember to do and what we should not or may not do, in the article Displeasures and Actions of the Almighty God.

In 2016 we also started to present writings which are from guest-speakers, so that other voices could be presented and gave you some other or equal insight.
As such you may find writings presented by Guestspeaker, presenting also different Guest-writers or re-blogged articles, and Relating to God who shall offer specific articles about our relation to the Most High.

Now we have put the first 5 years on WordPress behind us and look forward to the coming next five years in which we shall continue to present the Nazarene Commentary, looking at that very important Nazarene teacher who was born 2020 years ago, and who should receive our full attention, him being the Way to God.

We do hope you may accompany us on our further road-trip looking forward to the return of our master and our intentions to live according God’s Wishes so that we all can enter the Kingdom of God as loving brothers and sisters in Christ.

Uit de oude doos: Belgische Bijbelstudenten op het Wereldwijde Net

Mits de website van de Vereniging voor Bijbelstude zal worden opgegeven willen wij toch nog enkele artikelen bewaren voor het nageslacht en ons eigen archief.

In 2010 schreven wij de 25ste oktober om 4:44 am:

De Belgian Biblestudents – Belgische Bijbelstudenten zijn nu ook op het wereldwijde net te vinden.

First article for the opening of the WordPress site of the Belgian Bible Students - Eerste artikel bij de opening van de WordPress site van de Belgische Bijbel Studenten

November 2005
First article for the opening of the WordPress site of the Belgian Bible Students – Eerste artikel bij de opening van de WordPress site van de Belgische Bijbel Studenten

De Belgian Biblestudents of Belgische Bijbelstudenten waren midden van 2010 over gegaan om zich meer kenbaar te maken. Hiertoe leek het Wereldwijde Internet de ideale manier. Op 2 Juli 2010 brachten zij Getuigen voor God en Christus op de Microsoft Networks Space van Bible Students from Belgium Bijbelstudenten uit België – Windows Live Space .
Nu zijn zij echter geconfronteerd geworden dat deze wijze van publiceren via Windows Live opgeheven wordt. Daarom hebben zij ook de overstap gewaagd naar de update en verandering naar  WordPress.  Nu blijkt echter dat de teksten die op  Windows Live Space  waren geplaatst niet automatisch konden overgebracht worden op het nieuwe platform. Hiertengevolge moeten wij al de teksten nu manueel overbrengen welk nog een tijdje in beslag zal nemen.
Graag wensen wij al de lezers van dit platform ook al uit te nodigen op onze pagina’s. Iedereen is welkom bij  de Belgische/Belgian Biblestudents: Belgian Biblestudents – Belgische Bijbelstudenten .
"Vele kerken" one of the first articles by the opening of the WordPress site Belgian Bible Students - Tussen de "Vele kerken" konden de Belgische Bijbelstudenten sinds 2011 op een WordPress site de mensen aanspreken

“Vele kerken” one of the first articles by the opening of the WordPress site Belgian Bible Students – Tussen de “Vele kerken” konden de Belgische Bijbelstudenten sinds 2011 op een WordPress site de mensen aanspreken

De komende dagen zullen wij een beeld trachten te scheppen van de reden waarom er zo veel verschillende kerken zijn en waarom doorheen de geschiedenis van het Christendom er steeds mensen waren die er de voorkeur aan gaven zich enkel te houden aan het Woord van God in plaats aan de vele geschriften die er doorheen de geschiedenis ontstonden rond religie en God. Wij zullen laten zien waarom er veel theologen de verkeerde kant uitgingen en zand in de ogen strooiden van vele mensen.

Voor hen die werkelijk willen te weten komen wat God van hen verlangt is het niet slecht om te beseffen wat er door de eeuwen heen verkeer is gegaan en waar de klepel hangt.
De Belgische Bijbelstudenten hopen met hun overzicht van de Geschiedenis van het Christendom en de Christenheid een beeld te scheppen van de positie van de student van de Bijbel.
Dus kijk de komende dagen uit naar artikels over de invloeden van de Hellenisten, Renaissance, de Hervormingsbeweging, Campbell, Thomas, Russell en andere op Belgian Biblestudents – Belgische Bijbelstudenten.

2010 – 2014 in review

As we already wrote in some previous articles 2014 was not a jubilant year for the Biblestudents and for the Christadelphians in Belgium. They had to face opposition and even people who wanted to silence them.

Because having had some censorship on other websites and some people working against us, we thought it perhaps useful for others (and for ourselves) to show to the outside world that we do not give up and keep going strong.

On 2005 November 11 we started at MSN with our Welkomstwoord, a word of welcoming those who would find us on the internet and greeted those who knew us also from Blogger. Some older articles we placed also on this platform and therefore we said: Welcome to some older articles.

In October 2010 we transferred everything to WordPress and started our publications on this platform, explaining who we are, what we believe and what we want to do.From January 2011 until March 2012 no time was found to publish something on the WordPress Biblestudents site. From April 2012 our motor started very slowly.

Mount Everest from Kalapatthar.

When you know that 600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012 we at the Low Countries could only get about 3,200 views that year. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get that many views.

In 2012, there were only 27 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 74 posts. The year after we managed to publish 87 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 161 posts. We got about 7,600 views in 2013. for 2012 the busiest day of the year was January 9th with 49 views. The most popular post that day was Wat wij geloven. The busiest day of the year 2013 was March 27th with 99 views. The most popular post that day was 14 Nisan a day to remember #4 A Lamb slain.

Our train started to get under-way. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people as we found visiting us. It does not always went in crescendo, so last year we saw less people willing to go along with us on our trip into the Christian world. Again the busiest day seemed to be at the beginning of the year. January 11th  got the marker with 73 views. The most popular post that day was Over ons.

In 2014, there were 63 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 227 posts.

For 20112 and 2013 Watchtowers’s new face earned the two best places.

In 2014 most people did find us along:

  1. facebook.com
  2. christadelphians.wordpress.com
  3. twitter.com
  4. bijbelvorser.wordpress.com
  5. WordPress.com Reader

On January the 20th of 2015 we got a total of 19,623 views over 227 postings. At the moment the most popular page is the homepage with 11,740 views, followed by

Broeders en Zusters in Christus door de eeuwen heen #13 Hutterieten, Hussisme en Eenheid van Broederschap 404
Broeders en Zusters in Christus door de eeuwen heen #12 Anabaptisten 364
Wat wij geloven 349
Eerste Eeuw van het Christendom 347
Watchtowers’s new face 337
What we believe 289
Over ons 280
About us 187
The blot not to be seen 181
After the Sabbath after Passover, the resurrection of Jesus Christ 149

For 2015 we do hope to publish more articles t regular intervals, and look forward to have you as a regular reader, also willing to stimulate us by marking those articles you like and by letting others also know this side which shall try to present Bible verses in different translations and related comments, plus news around bible students from all over the world.

We also shall continue to contribute to the two lifestyle magazines: Stepping toes and From Guestwriters, where you can find our following writings:
