NO! Too many reject the AV and the TR Reformation text on the basis of a 'Thus saith Dan Wallace' or a 'Dr James White' as their final authority or due to the satanic undermining of the AV by heretics such as Peter Ruckman and other extreme King James Only'ists.
There is much more to be considered than the views of the above, whether good men or heretics!
Why not hear this sermon series and see if those who prefer the Gold standard that is the Authorised Version do so with sound reasoning. This sermon is most instructive and I look forward to hearing more.
Also consider the series and some of Dan Wallace's strawman reasoning and why we need wisdom before we quote another experts supposed scholarly understanding. Understand why you reject the AV before following any trend to do so: http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?SID=92513844468
Great Sermon! A blessing to hear Larry's testimony how he was brought up in a Roman Catholic family and how the gospel seed was first sown by a Christian farmer and how Larry was converted some years later and separating from the darkness of Romanism. It was interesting to hear how Larry's RC grandfather would have nothing to do with him after his conversion but as a dying old man came to trust Christ through Larry's witness. Also the question for believers- a warning about our churches falling into dead formalism.
Simple but beautiful truth! "The greatest thing in the world is to be saved"! I Timothy 1: 15
I was converted and saved by the grace of God and enabled to trust Christ alone without first coming into contact with any church. Having read John 3: 36; John 5:24; 6:37,47; Romans 8: 1, 9, 16 and I John 5: 9-13 I knew from the Bible alone that a Christian can have full assurance and KNOW that he has eternal life. I knew by the testimony and record of God's word that I was saved and prayed in simple believing faith that God would be pleased to grant full assurance according to His promises and by the inner witness of the Holy Spirit that morning I KNEW! I went to my nearest church that Lord's Day morning-the first hymn:
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.
Hot tears of joy fell onto my hymn book at such a blessing that the chief of sinners KNEW he was a child of God. This was the only time I heard any truth in that ecumenical Methodist church which had departed from God's Holy Word-the Bible and where none possessed that God given full assurance. Listen to this sermon- how can you go to sleep tonight without believing God's precious promises, without that blessed certainty and assurance?
Great Sermon! A good sermon on what the Bible teaches!False religion and the cults and those with no religion deny 'full assurance' because they deny sola scriptura..
'Full Assurance' http://www.spurgeon.org/sermons/0384.htm
'But shall I tell you who the gentlemen are who generally raise objections to the glorious privilege of assurance? There are, first of all, the adherents of the Pope of Rome..'
Spurgeon does a good job also in providing Biblical evidences 'that I have eternal life' in the sermons: HELPS TO FULL ASSURANCE http://www.spurgeongems.org/vols28-30/chs1791.pdf and also 'The Blessing of Full Assurance' http://www.spurgeon.org/sermons/2023.htm
"The Church of Rome teaches that no man can be assured that he has eternal
life...Impossible to know that you are quickened? It ought to be impossible to have any doubt about it! Rationally, a living man should know that he is alive. No man should give sleep to his eyes or slumber to his eyelids while he has a doubt about his eternal state. It is possible and, if it is possible, it is very desirable‚ÄĒfor when a man knows that he has eternal life, what a comfort it is to him!"
Great Sermon! Dear Brother
You make some excellent points about modern versions and the importance of an accurate Bible based on the Received Text, yet the NKJV you use in the pulpit is a new translation and still inferior to the KJV. Dr Price who was the OT editor says: ‚ÄėI am not a TR advocate', so would you want him to assist in providing a NEW TR translation or even your present pulpit Bible?
The TBS UK publish bibles which have the meaning of all the archaic words, so not really a significant problem. Note also the links:
An Examination of the NKJV PART 1
An Examination of the NKJV PART 2
Link 2 includes a sound reason:
'Why not produce a modern version of the English Bible for the 21 st century?'
As one with an average education, and not brought up with the KJV, I have had no problem with its language and hope with good reason that you would rather stick to the old paths and explain any difficulties, as they arise, from the pulpit, just as you would explain words such as 'propitiation'.
Seek prayerfully if your congregation agree with the above TBS article: 'Why not produce a modern version of the English Bible for the 21 st century?'
God bless you.
No Christian 'hopes' that any go to hell, on the contrary. Go and read I Corinthians 6: 9-11 and consider 'such WERE some of you' in that context. There is still hope for sinners- see I Timothy 1: 15.
Jesus knows all about YOU Muscari and His word: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
***Isn't it funny how those leading "destructive lives" aren't the ones who raise a fuss about other people's lives***
No it isn't funny, friend, to see sinful men reveling in or countenancing the wicked perversion of others. I much prefer this Christian Pastor who has a burden to see sinners (those leading "destructive lives")come to a true knowledge and saving faith in His precious redeemer...our lovely Lord Jesus Christ, than some one who rants about freedom of speech but can't tolerate Christian TRUTH. The destructive life will lead to eternal destruction, but you won't even make a fuss or a squeak?

BTW That is the view of this website sermonaudio.com not the Pastor.
That is the trouble of the internet. Anonymous mice who hide behind a keyboard spouting what they could never say face to face in a manly way. Freedom of speech is best served anoy mouse ly?
Conviction If only our pastors these days had the same conviction about the scriptures that Jonathan Edwards obviously had. The wrath of God if mentioned at all, is heavily sugar-coated to appeal to the culture. In my own church you are guaranteed to hear at least 4 or 5 jokes during the sermon. It is time we took scripture seriously and believe wholeheartedly what it says!!
Great Sermon! Whilst agreeing 100% with these excellent messages from a faithful Pastor set for the defence of the gospel, I ponder the lack of evangelsim in many areas of the UK. The nation will not hear the gospel or any Bible Truth via Government resources or the media, but they should hear it via God's choice messengers...those handful of elderly 'bigots' who are involved in street out reach who are the reproach of British Society? see Blackpool example here http://www.protestantoldpaths.org/ What if every UK church had an open air witness in our towns and cities? At the very least then the people of our nation would know what Christians really believe and what the Bible really teaches..Biblical Christianity! These same people are not coming into the churches; they will not hear via the wicked media....the UK whilst ripe for judgement is also ripe for missionary evangelism whilst there is still hope, but where is that evangelism in so many parts of particularly England? Silence is golden? Where are the Christians prepared to be thrown to the lion of state persecution which is still a toothless lion compared to previous centuries and the blood of the martyrs? Churches sending missionaries to far away lands? Then why not first to the streets of England?
Great Sermon! This is a very encouraging update on the work of the TBS by their speaker Dr Allen- with everything from Missionary work, Bible translation and even camouflaged Bibles, and especially worth hearing for the wonderful conversion of an Asian lady who noticed the Authorised Version Trinitarian Bible Society Posters on the wall of a Church in Humberside!

An appeal to all who love and still adhere to ‚Äúthe old paths‚ÄĚ Affirmation 2010
A number of Sermonaudio Broadcasters involved in the above affirmation e.g. Rev Malcom Watts and Rev John Thackway. Please have a prayerful examination of what is contained. We need to consider these things in an age where every man does what is right in his own eyes...even re: the plurality of Bible Versions rather than ONE AUTHORITY
Great Sermon! It was to good to read in the media last week that Euan has chosen not to play Rugby for his club or for Scotland on the Lord's Day (Sunday).
This is a far bolder decision than the well publicised story of the Welsh Rugby player,who although married,has chosen a perverted unnatural life style and is applauded for such by going public in the media!
'them that honor me I will honor, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed' I Samuel 2. 30
May God richly bless Euan for his honourable decision and may He yet bring the other to consider his ungodly choice and consequently to repentance.
