Good typical Pastors,
I listen to your commentaries all the time and appreciate your views on most topics including this one. However I disagree with you on tongues never being genuine. I have attended 2 Assembly of God churches and have experienced a lot of what I would say is not what is called for in Corinthians but have also been a part of genuine speaking in tongues with an interpretation and it appeared to edify the church.
Not trying to argue, just giving my experience. I do agree that there is more abuse of tongues than not. I always enjoy your podcasts and look forward to them in the future.

I trust you mean 'Catholic' in the real sense of Church Universal (excluding therefore the cult of Rome) as of course the KJV was indeed the only Protestant Bible (English) for centuries as you and Doug well know.
Therefore the RC church is the truth if millions have been converted through er,um, ....this RC bible filled with false doctrine? SermonAudio is also part of the same seeing though it is based on the Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster and America and strongly Traditional Text?
Next you'll be saying it is a JW Bible because they once used it (when the whole of Christendom still used the same, hence even the cults). Wonder why they abandoned the KJV
I'll try and help you...have a look at my sermon comment here where JW's are convicted through a scripture not their NWT or in your own bible:
Observer wrote: What will it take to push you over the edge? Lol You know a few months ago no one cared about a flag, until some stupid liberal stood up and alleged its connection to racism then all the liberals were up in arms. Same with Jim. His "experts" say be upset about the KJV and suddenly Jimbo's apoplectic with concern and wants it buried.
Here's some of Jim's earlier comments which will push Albert over the edge..
AV is really a niche Bible for Shakespearean actors 1/17/11
The Devil has been using the AV for 400 years, it's time to give a clear message 1/15/11
If Satan were to choose which Bible he preferred it would definitely be the AV! 1/15/11
Alas Jim is already babbling to himself as he looks in the mirror, and he should be ashamed when he answers how did God convert many 1,000's at the Baptist Metropolitan Tabernacle using the (anglican) KJV (The Devil's bible)?
Have a look and be ashamed Tabernacle Conversions in 1860

RE: J MacArthur, possibly he could handle grave concerns better-view the correspondence with a preacher on SermonAudio re: 'the Manhatton Declaration'-MacArthur's Disturbing Reply
Church History can be most relevant. Read the KJV 2 Thess 2: 7. Read the same in the Geneva version and examine the notes. Read again the dedication in the KJV. See the WCF 25.6 and LBC 1689. The KJV is a PROTESTANT Bible. Now read the NKJV-note the subtle CAPITAL change and alteration altogether of the Protestant Geneva interpretation held by so many faithful preachers-Bunyan, Whitefield, Spurgeon.
Now read the General Editor of the Enlish Standard Version and does the alarm bell sound? Another one behind the same Manhatton Declaration...a must read
Very interesting. Very good and all very interesting and edifying! It was good to see the video you posted on your blog and Robert Truelove's conclusion from 57.40 onwards and his perceptive comment about the Critical Text disciples of James White occasionally being just as rabid (and just as uninformed) as the KJO Ruckmanites.
May we fervently pray that God will be pleased to increase an interest in that "small but growing movement in some Reformed circles to rethink the adoption of the modern critical text and to take seriously the confessional articulation of the doctrine of the divine preservation of Scripture in chapter one of the WCF and the 2LBCF (1689)
May the Lord continue to bless your own
labours which are most helpful and instructive. Thank you!
US Reformed (see sermons on SermonAudio above) Baptist Pastor Jeff Riddleâ€™s blog (link below) is worth a look as he is doing some excellent scholarly work defending the Textus Receptus position and critiquing even James White.
Interesting to see Dr James Whiteâ€™s response to Reformed Baptist Pastor Robert Truelove and Truelove's response to him. See Robertâ€™s video â€˜Ecclesiastical Text-Response to James Whiteâ€™, but first go to the end of it at 57.45. Note the comment about some of James Whiteâ€™s discipleâ€™s as rabid critical text advocates, similar to the KJO Ruckmanites. Both types appear on SA comments, so a well received loving rebuke! http://www.jeffriddle.net/
Jeff would differ a little with RT

As Pastor Riddle says: there is a small but growing movement to rethink the adoption of the modern critical text!
Thank you for the excellent posts-'Observer', 'B McCausland' etc.
Great Sermon! My daily Bible chapters yesterday just happened to be Psalm 107 and Exodus 33 and the Lord put 'verse 7' of Psalm 107 and verse 14' of Exodus 33 upon my heart. Then 'This Is The Way, Walk Ye In It'.
You can appreciate my astonishment to then see your three sermons on the very same! Thank you for being the Lord's blessed instrument to minister such a providential blessing!
Great Sermon! Very helpful sermon heard this Lord's Day June 7th and a particular blessing as I view todays Spurgeon 'Daily Cheque Book' reading and 'Morning and Evening' (this evenings reading) June 8th!
Great Sermon! Had been thinking upon the readings for March 21st in 'Daily Light'-2 Corinthians 1: 3,4 and also Isaiah 41: 10,13 and particularly 'I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand' so it is indeed a wonderful blessing to have just heard your greatly encouraging and comforting sermon. Thank you so much.
I've found myself turning the TV off midway through episodes of Family Guy, South Park and the Simpsons because they mock Christ. There are a number of things I just can't watch anymore, and this is not because I am prudish in any way but rather because it just makes me sad. The creators of these shows are so funny and talented but it grieves me to see them mock the Lord in such a way.
