The verse I was referring to in the previous post concerning Erasmus' challenge is 1st John 5:7. By the way, I used to be KJV-Only so I understand the mindset that relies on needing to believe God's preservation method is via a translation. James White's book, however, gives another view of preservation which for me is a much better foundation than the "through a translation" method.
I just read "The King James Only Controversy" 2nd Printing - 2009 by James White. No other book has ever excited me so much in describing how God has preserved his Word. Every church member should be given the book and even if you are in the KJV-Only camp you should be secure enough to handle the challenges the book presents. The book gave me concern as to how the KJV does not bring out Christ's deity as clear compared to other versions which is why you often need to use a different version when witnessing to Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses. It was interesting to read about Erasmus' challenge for anyone to verify it was a legitimate verse but ended up putting it in his 3rd edition once someone presented a manuscript with it in the margin pointing to where the "verse" should go. I also had no idea the book of Revelation had so many errors in the KJV. I didn't know that Revelation 16:5 had a phrase in the KJV only to be found in the mind of a 16th century man, Beza, and no where else in history. It also briefly touches on why the KJV may be softer on homosexuality than other versions. The book presents the method God actually used to preserve his word rather than the "trust us, the KJV is the standard and we just know it is THE translation" method.
Thanks Thanks especially for making the PDF document available. Very provocative, and biblical. Even as a London Baptist, if any nation were to do as that doc suggests re: WCF, I'd load up the family and move there tomorrow.
the King James Bible is the best Bible one can read(try finding one with all black print, being as Jesus Christ is ALMIGHTY GOD and is the Author of the whole Bible)the niv bible and a lot of these newer bibles are so watered down, they will give one a false pretense that everything is ok in the world. The Old Testament is just as important as the New Testament-the whole Bible is GODS Law Book for every human that will come into existance, the Bible is the only way GOD saves anyone (Romans 10:17)
Peter, Romanism, Satan & The Two Mystery Babylons More fine preaching on the book of Revelation, by Bill Mencarow, exposing Satan deceptions, which are widespread in most modern churches and all nations who continue to wonder after the beast (Revelation 13:3) in these days of great apostasy (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4). "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues" (Revelation 18:4). All Christians will benefit greatly by listening to this whole series on Revelation, which is free in MP3 format at http://www.sermonaudio.com/go/769 on sermonaudio -- for "Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand" (Revelation 1:3).
Globalism, Babylon, Romanism, Islam & Reformation! More powerfully encouraging preaching along the line of classic Reformation thought related to prophecy. Don't miss this sermon, or the complete series on Revelation, which surveys Reformed thought on eschatology using the best Reformed commentaries throughout history. The complete series contains an amazing amount of solid Reformed research and may now be the best contemporary commentary available on the book of Revelation. The whole series (ongoing) is free on MP3 at http://www.sermonaudio.com/go/716 -- worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy (Revelation 19:10).
If only your sermon were heard throughout the Chri A fine sermon. The perverted false doctrine built around Romans 13 has been the greatest find for the communists, and they have made use of it wholesale amongst Christian folk.How do Reformed Christians imagine the Reformation occurred?
My best wishes to you and your compatriots, and I shall keep listening,

Humanity has been colonized by a satanic cult called the Illuminati. This cult represents Masonic and Jewish bankers who finagled a monopoly over government credit which allows them to charge interest on funds they create out of nothing.
Naturally they want to protect this prize by translating it into a political and cultural monopoly. This takes the form of a totalitarian world government dedicated to Lucifer, who represents their defiance of God.
We are being re-engineered to serve the Illuminati. They undermine institutions like marriage and religion, and promote depravity, dysfunction, corruption and division. They have orchestrated two world wars and are planning a third.
Rev 17:3 . . . and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
Rev 17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
Biblical, Historical, Rational! I deeply commend and revere the Holy Spirit on how He works in the life of W.J. Mencarow in Bible interpretation. It is so objective that a discerning spiritual man could say that such understanding must be Spirit-led and thoroughly retrospected in the fire of the Words of God. I am so blessed Bro. Mencarow! Praise God.
Dear Sirs/Madams, grace, mercy peace and love unto thee in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ our true and living God. May I please recommend the book Judaism Discovered by Mr. Michael Hoffman which represents painstaking research based on rigorous examination of all available exegetical sources. Deconstrucing the rabbinic texts line by line, Michael Hoffman has discovered a 'terra incognita': Orthodox Judaism as the ideological survival of the most ossified traditions of Babylonian paganism. (www.revisionisthistory.org) also, I seriously recommend The French Connection http://www.iamthewitness.com by Mr. Daryl Bradford Smith and listen to the audio files, archives of articles and books downloaded for free. We are living in serious times because the professing christian Church has chosen 'ignorance' and 'error' as its main policy for the doctrine of self. The holy scriptures, which our ONLY authority and guide have been seriously neglected because of apathy and laziness amongst the local church fellowships.
Yours sincerely, Phillip A. Jones. Northolt, Middlesex, England. UK.
