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.

Ah! The blessed providence of listening to SermonAudio for years: 'Geoff Banister, Sinclair Ferguson, Ian Goligher, John Greer, Jerald Lewis, Alan MacGregor, Andy McIntosh, Pooyan Mehrshahi, Colin Mercer, David Murray, Maurice Roberts, David Silverside, John Thackway, Malcolm Watts...ALL preachers who have contributed study notes and who I have personally heard with much profit on SA (Some choice UK Baptists).

There seems to be a great blessing on the work of the Reformed Trinitarian Bible Society home and abroad and as the Lord provides a new building for translation work may He be pleased to bless His work!
See the Article â€˜The Treasuryâ€™ October 2014
Maybe the AV study bible (a SA partner) is another unseen â€˜blessingâ€™ in the Lord's providential dealings with us 'mighty' 'comment'tators, who haven't yet thought much on the fruit of God's work VIA SermonAudio.COM?
Interesting interview! Over the last decade I have providentially greatly benefited from sermons on SermonAudio from all these contributors to the KJV Study Bible, Joel Beeke, Michael Barrett, Geoff Banister, Brian Borgman, Ian Goligher, John Greer, Jerold Lewis, Alan MacGregor, Andy McIntosh, Pooyan Mehrshahi, Colin Mercer, David Murray, Maurice Roberts, David Silverside, John Thackway, and Malcolm Watts.
So also noting so many godly UK contributors- including the Chairman and members of the Trinitarian Bible Society, it is a real blessing to hear this interview, and also a joy to have received my own copy of this highly recommended KJV study Bible which I am sure will prove a blessing to multitudes!
It was a good question about the 1689 Confession being included in future editions!
