    “ Response to Chris Symonds ”
    Hello Chris, You may like to look through this book review (link below) which appeared in the TBS Quarterly Record in 2006 and covers some of the matters you raise. df_reports/69-1.pdf#page=51 The choice is ultimately between the Received Text with ecclesiastical pedigree limiting the manuscripts in which the correct reading is to be sought or else a perpetually provisional text based on all the manuscripts available at any given time (and of which we can never know we have reached an end of new discovery).

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    you do realize that the TR Erasmus, Stephanus and Bezea differ from each other and also the Majority text. They all contain textual variants. The KJV in its original acknowledged in its footnotes that there were many variants. The KJV translators in their original preface did not say that the KJV is the final word. Silverside's sermon is so full of straw man arguments and logical fallacy's that it begs criticism.. His argument is not apologetic in any sense, it is based on erroneous arguments and ignorance. Most critical scholars do not question the authenticity of scripture at all as Silverside suggests. On Westcott and Hort these are not the basis of modern translations at all another inaccurate assertion. Where the received texts is concerned it is made of of 12 manuscripts not including the majority (Bezentyne) text. It is ultimately dangerous to use an internal argument to support the TR only position.

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    This sermon was very informative and made a great deal of sense in its application for the contemporary church. I heartily recommend it and also recommend that notes and bible references be made because there's a lot here to be remembered.

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    Greetings. I've received word that a poster has a question about Providential preservation and perceived textual errors in the Scriptures. If that person will write to me, I have some information I can send him. Debra Anderson Senior Editor TBS [email protected]

    “ Solid message ”
    Good basic message on the truth of the preservation of scripture by God. As pointed out, the word of God has been preserved by and among the elect people of God. The oracles of God have been committed to the people of God. Through Jesus Christ, the church is the pillar and ground of the truth because it is holding forth the word of life.

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    Thank you Rev Silversides! I've listened to this sermon a number of times. This teaching on the AV is a blessing.

    “ Important Sermon for American Pastors! ”
    What an important Sermon! Too many self described 'defenders of orthodoxy' on this side of the pond ignore the importance of the Authorized Version. I find my 2 local 'reformed' pastors are more likely to reconcile their sermons to the Westminster Confession or Heidleberg Catechism than the received Word of God. They shamelessly offer the NIV( a local OPC Church), the NKJV (a local RCUS Church) to their congregations with little concern to this issue. Not only to they dismiss the use of the AV in the production of their catechisms, but they shamelessly decry other Christians as violating the truth while decorating their sanctuaries with Yule Trees.

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    What a fantastic sermon! Rev. Silversides has presented us with an aplologetic argument,not only for the Authorized Version, but for scripture as a whole. I had never heard many of the points he brings up, and they are presented in such a way that I found them irrefutable. Though I have found that the ESV "suits me" I will never go back to it again. Thank you Pastor for this fine defense of God's Word.
