    WISDOM {Part IV}

      Before we begin a Scriptural examination of “Wisdom”, I believe it would behoove us to try to understand the relationship that our “attributes” (our “substance” = body, soul, & spirit; and our “faculties” = heart, mind, & conscience) have to do with “wisdom”. “WISE”: There are 33 verses in the Scriptures with the words “wise” & “heart” together. [Exodus 28:3; 31:6; 35:10,25; 36:1-2,8; Leviticus 19:17; 1Kings 3:12; Job 9:4; 37:24; Psalms 101:2; Proverbs 10:8; 11:29; 15:7; 16:21,23; 18:15; 22:17; 23:15,19; ...

    THE TRUTH ABOUT THE ESV THE ENGLISH (SUB) STANDARD VERSION Dr. Terry Watkins  Dial-the-Truth Ministries As all new Bible versions, the ESV “preface” boldly compares itself to the old KJV.

    KNOWLEDGE {Part I}

    From the very beginning, God’s “revelation” to mankind has been on a need to know basis. This fact has been true from the creation of Adam up to the time of Moses (approximately 2,000 years - before the written “Scripture of Truth”); and from Moses’ time up to the death of the Apostle John (approximately 2,000 years – during the writing and recording of the “Oracles of God”, i.e. the “Scripture of Truth”); and from the death of the Apostle ...

    DISCERNMENT {Part II}

    {Part II} OBSERVATIONS FROM SCRIPTURE ON KNOWLEDGE – DISCERNMENT – UNDERSTANDING – WISDOM   DISCERNMENT {Discern - Discerned} I have debated with myself as to which comes FIRST – “Discernment” or “Understanding”? And I still haven’t fully made up my mind. However, I believe that it is possible to be able to discern the difference between “spiritual things” without necessarily fully understanding “WHY”.

    TRUE SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING People’s pre-conceptions and miss-conceptions of the “meanings” of Biblical words are extremely difficult to deal with.  The Scriptural study of the words Knowledge, Discernment, Understanding, and Wisdom has opened my eyes to my own miss-understanding of some of these words; and at the same time has demonstrated to me (once again) how much I still don’t know about the “deep things” [1 Corinthians 2:10] concerning the word of truth.   All humans possess a body, a soul, and a spirit ...

    The Bible Believer’s Guide to Dispensationalism By Dr. David Walker The Bible Believer’s Guide to Dispensationalism is not merely another evaluation of a preferred system of study. Rather, it is an earnest defense of true biblical interpretation. Some think interpreting the Bible is relative and dependent upon personal preference. Others insist that various systems of study are necessary to find the right interpretation. Still yet, some go as far to claim that their church or organization has the only key to unlocking the ...

    New Living Translation EXPOSED! by Robert J. Stewart The New Living Translation (NLT) is straight from Hell.  On their official website, NLT advertises with the slogan, "Accuracy you can trust."  Unfortunately, the NLT is not very accurate.  The fact that the word "begotten" has been wrongfully removed from John 3:16 should be enough reason for every Christian to trash their NLT.  In fact, I would rip it into shreds first to ensure that no one else is poisoned by it.  To say ...

He took an active part in the preparation of versions of the Bible in Sanskrit, Hindi, Bengali, Maldivian, Kashmiri, Armenian, Malay, Hindustani, and Persian.

I am writing this letter to you in the hope that you are  the kind of person who, before making up your mind on an important issue, tries  to make an honest effort to carefully examine all sides of that issue.

If you are a Christian the issue of which Bible is the  word of God should be very important to you. You should want to know if the  Bible you are reading and studying can be trusted as the TRUE Revelation of God  and if you can rely on it to be
free from all error. I would think  that a truly sincere person would want to know if any Bible can be trusted to be the

TRUE WORD OF GOD.

The issue of
which Bible [if any] constitutes the Word of God is a very controversial subject.  Personal bias and prejudice are very difficult to set aside, especially when a  person’s religion or personal belief is involved.  However, I believe that the TRUTH can always  stand an open inquiry and that no one should be afraid to have their beliefs  examined unless they are unsure of what they believe.

I first became acquainted with this controversial subject  (Which Bible?) in 1969, and have spent hundreds of hours in study and research  through more than 50 books and many booklets and pamphlets. This issue is not  only very controversial it is also extremely confusing since the subject of the  History of the Transmission of the Text of the Bible
cannot not be taught in the “Public” i.e. Government  Schools, and is not taught in most of the  churches in the United States  today. Ignorance may be ‘bliss’ for some people, but I would think that any  thinking reasonable person, who is honest and sincere, would want to know if  there is in existence – and present in the world today – a physical copy (a real Book you can hold in your hands)  of God’s  Revelation to man. I would also think that it would be good to know if that  Book (the Bible) is Pure, Holy and without any admixture of error.

God expects Christians to examine issues and to judge them  according to His words recorded in the Scriptures. For a Christian,
ALL the  issues of life are to be judged in the light of His word! In examining this  issue, [Which Bible], sincere Christians  cannot abandon God’s word and base their decision only on ”science”,  “theories”, “scholarship”, or other Christians “opinions”. Whatever claims are  made and whatever hypotheses are put forth, it is the Christian’s duty and  responsibility to carefully weigh all the evidence and to make a determination  that honors God and His word.

If you are unfamiliar with the Bible; If you do not know  much about Church History; If you have never studied the History of the  Transmission of the Text of the Bible; If you are not familiar with the so‑called  “science” of Textual Criticism; If you have never examined, weighed and  carefully investigated New Testament Manuscript evidence; and If you have never  made a comparative study of Bible Translations, you may be a target for  misinformation, propaganda, deception and lies. Be extra
Careful about what you accept as TRUTH! Take some time to  “Check Out” everything you hear or read. Make sure of the PEOPLE (pastors, teachers, professors,  friends, relatives and loved ones) and the INSTITUTIONS [schools,  colleges, universities (“Christian” or not), churches, fellowships etc.] that you put your trust in.

Let’s clear the air of any misconceptions that may cloud  this issue. The following FACTS are significant and irrefutable:

1.  ALL of the  ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPTS to the Bible are LOST!

2.  The Major Battle  over which WORDS “belong” in  the Bible has taken place in the New Testament Text. (As opposed to the Old  Testament Text)

3.  The Major Battle  over which MANUSCRIPTS are to be “trusted” has taken place over the known New Testament Manuscripts. (As opposed to the  known Old Testament Manuscripts)

4.  From 100  A.D. to 1611 A.D. There were fewer than ten (10) Bible Translations in English.  (Partial or complete)

5.  From A.D.  1611 ‑ first printing of the AUTHORIZED VERSION [A.V.] (Now known as The  King James Bible) – until 1881, a very few new translations were made, usually  by a handful of individuals        unhappy with the A.V. 1611, and without any success.

6. From 1881 to the present day ‑ NEARLY ONE (1) NEW  TRANSLATION PER YEAR has come off the presses, again without much lasting  success.

7. Nearly all the “new” translations are based on just a FEW [A VERY FEW] MANUSCRIPTS (Vaticanus & Sinaiticus ‑  Primary “Authorities”)

8.  The many  GREEK TEXTS for the “new” Translations are different from the GREEK TEXT of the  A.V. 1611 in over 5000 places!

9.  ALL the  GREEK TEXTS for the “new” Translations are derived from and modeled after the  Westcott and Hort GREEK TEXT.

10. The vast majority of the “Textual Critics” and  “Biblical Scholars” subscribe, at least in part, to the complex Westcott and  Hort Textual “THEORY”.

11. Most of the “critics” and “scholars” embrace  Griesbach’s elaborate Manuscript FAMILIES “HYPOTHESIS”.

12. Most of the “new” Translations DIFFER from the  A.V. 1611 in as many as 5000 places in the New Testament alone!

13. ALL The “new” Translations are ALIKE, that is  they RESEMBLE EACH OTHER in contrast to the A.V. 1611, King James Bible.

14. ALL the “new” Translations have been made in a  period of time marked by DISBELIEF, DISOBEDIENCE and APOSTASY.

15. ALL the “new” Translations have a COPYRIGHT.

Please note that up to this point I have not made any  claims of any sort. Neither have I presented any charges or made any  accusations against any church, or any school, or anyone. So far I have  presented some of the “facts” having to do with this issue. (“Facts” that can easily  be verified through a little bit of research and study.)

Here are some FACTS about the King James Bible (A.V.  1611) you may not have known:

1. The A.V. (King James Bible) was translated near the  beginning of the Reformation.

2. The A.V. (King James Bible) was the 7th complete translation  of the Bible to be made in English from the beginning of the Reformation.

3. The A.V. (King James Bible) was translated by over 50  men divided into three groups: The Westminster Group; The Oxford Group; and The  Cambridge Group.

4.  Many of  the translators, their families and friends had personally endured hardship and  persecution for their personal beliefs.

5.  The high  caliber and qualifications of these truly scholarly men has NEVER been matched  by ANY group of translators since.

6.  The A.V.  (King James Bible) was translated after nearly 1000 YEARS of Spiritual DARKNESS,  at the dawning of a Spiritual AWAKENING.

7.  Except for  the PRIVATE “Reference” and “Study” materials found in some King James Bibles.  There is NO Copyright on a King James Bible (A.V.).

8.  The A.V.  (King James Bible) has been called, by believers and non‑believers, the  most beautiful piece of English literature in the entire world.

9.  The A.V.  (King James Bible) has reigned supreme over ALL the other Bibles ever printed for  375 years.

10. The A.V. (KING JAMES BIBLE) IS THE MOST POPULAR  BOOK IN THE WORLD.
THERE HAVE BEEN MORE A.V.’S (KING JAMES  BIBLES) PRINTED THAN ANY OTHER Book or Bible in existence.

A careful review of what the Bible says on the subject of  It’s Own Authority reveals that the Bible should be the Sole Source of  AUTHORITY on all matters of faith and practice for the Christian. With the  exception of God Himself, a Christian should place nothing above the Bible nor should  the Bible be put in subjection to a Christian’s own culture,  prejudices, biases or so-called “personal revelations” from God. No church; no ecclesiastical organization; no group; no government;  no school; no man or movement should be placed above the Bible.

When approaching the subject of which Bible constitutes  God’s Word it is very important that we do not allow our own prejudices to “color” the issue. We should  not be asking: Which Bible do we “PREFER”?  Or which Bible is “EASIER” for me to  read? Or which Bible do my friends like? Or which Bible does my Bible school,  pastor, or church recommend? Instead, we should be asking: Which Bible does God  Prefer? Or Which Bible has God blessed the use of? Or Which Bible does God  witness to? Or Which Bible does God want us to use? Or Which Bible did God PRESERVE? Choosing the Bible that you  are going to use should not be based on anyone’s personal taste, likes,  preferences etc., the choosing should be done after a thorough study of the  facts.

In choosing “Which Bible” be careful of assumptions and  suppositions. The Bible, by It’s own claim, is no  ordinary book and anyone studying any of the various subjects involved in this  issue must keep in mind that there is a Spiritual Dimension, [the Devil does  exist], to this issue that must be taken into account in every area of study.

In Psalms 12:6-7 [A.V. - KJB] God says; “His WORDS are  PURE WORDS.” and that He, that is God, is going to “PRESERVE HIS WORDS  FOREVER!”
The Lord Jesus Christ said; that the “SAME WORDS” that He  spoke nearly 2000 years ago are going to be used to JUDGE the world and  mankind. (John 12:48)
The Lord also said that Heaven and Earth will pass away  but, “His WORDS shall not pass away.”

There are many more verses showing that God’s Word has  been preserved, but I don’t have the space to repeat them here. However, in I Peter 1:23 God  states that those of us who have received Christ as our Saviour have been “born‑again, not of corruptible seed,  but of incorruptible, by the Word of God, which liveth and abideth FOREVER.” Is God a man that He should lie? (Numbers 23:19)

It should be noted that “The Bible” was known as the  Authorized Version from 1611 A.D. until the early 1900’s when the Publishers of  the “new” bibles changed the name of “The Bible” from The Authorized Version to  The King James Version . . . . trying to make it look like the King of England was responsible for It’s  creation. About the same time (1901), the Publishers (Remember they are in the  business of SELLINGNEW”  BOOKS = $$$$$$$$) dropped the “Forward to the Reader” from the Translators of  the A.V., and yet they print page after page of the forwards to the “new”  bibles.  (Does this mean anything to  you?  Does it make you wonder at  all?)

In your study of which Bible constitutes God’s Word you  should seek the answers to many questions some of which are:

Do we have God’s
WORDS today? ‑ Just  exactly as He would want us to have them?

Where does one find the
WORDS of God today?

Does God require all Christians to be “experts” in  Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek and Latin?


Can today’s Christian
TRUST modern “Christian scholarship” to provide us  with a Holy Bible? Or even honest answers to questions about the  History, the Manuscripts, the Text or the Transmission of the Bible?

Did God go to all the trouble of Inspiring “All  Scripture” (
II Timothy 3:16)  and then just leave His Words alone to the luckless winds and shifting sands of  time?

In order to cover the subject of “Which Bible” more  completely certain Warnings, Claims and Charges must be made ‑ I would  encourage the reader to carefully check out any and all of the following:

ALL the “new’ Translations low‑rate, play‑down  or omit references to the DEITY of the Lord Jesus Christ.


ALL the “new” Translations slander, omit, or change  the WORDS of God.


ALL the “new” Translations are much harder to  MEMORIZE.


MOST of the “new” Translations attack the GODHEAD, i.e. the FATHER, SON, and HOLY SPIRIT as being ONE, by omitting & changing  references to IT.


MOST of  the “new” Translations attack the VIRGIN BIRTH  by omitting or changing references to it.


ALL the “new” Translations are result of modern,  unbelieving, humanistic so‑called “scientific scholarship”.


WHY do the Translators and Scholars avoid
identifying the older, better, or “more ancientmanuscripts that they cite when they change the WORDS of God?

HOW can the “new” Translations be God’s HOLY WORD  when they differ with the A.V. (King James Bible) in up to 5000 places in the  New Testament alone? If all of  the “new” Translations are God’s HOLY WORD - what  does that make the A.V. (King James Bible)?


WHY do ALL the “new’ Translations compare themselves  to the A.V. (King James Bible), instead of each other?


WHY do most of the “textual critics” and “bible  scholars” continually
attack and downgrade the A.V. (King James Bible)  in their classrooms?; In their schools?; In their  papers?; and in their books?

WHY have ALL the major Bible publishers stopped  printing the
forward (not the dedicatory)  to the A.V. King James Bible?

As you can see this issue is complex, controversial and  confusing. To help you get at the “FACTS” you will find a list of books enclosed with this letter.  The “FACTS” are very hard to find unless you  read some of the not so well known “unpopular” Authors:

IN THE PAST:

John  W. Burgon, Edward Miller, F. H. Scrivener, Herman Hoskier, Bishop Wordsworth,  Canon Cook,  Sir Robert Anderson, Philip  Mauro, Joseph C. Philpot, George Sayles Bishop, Benjamin C. Wilkinson, Robert  Dick Wilson, Edward F. Hills, J.  J Ray, and David Otis  Fuller.

PRESENT DAY:

Terence H. Brown, Henry Coray, Zane C. Hodges, Alfred Martin, David Otis  Fuller, Peter S. Ruckman, David Fountain, Gordon P. Gardiner, Wilbur N.  Pickering, Donald T. Clarke, Bruce Cummins, Dick Cimino, Barry Burton, Perry F.  Rockwood, , Billy Bartlett, Larry Bartlett, Herbert Noe, Michael Maynard, William P. Grady, Jack Moorman, Thomas Holland, Samuel Gipp, Douglas Stouffer, Gail Riplinger, David Reagan, Floyd Nolan Jones, Alan O’Reilly, Mickey Carter, Bill Bradley, Lloyd Streeter, Chester Murray, Timothy Morton, James Son, Paul Heaton, Chick Salliby, Skip Spencer, John Adair, and  Laurence M. Vance.

Every one of these men
have defended the Word of God or are still defending It starting from the 1880’s up  to the present day. You can’t find these books in bookstores, major publishers  will not print these men’s works, “Christian” newspapers, magazines etc. won’t  advertise these books, Christian” radio and TV  programs won’t have these men on the air. Most modern Bible “scholars and  critics” either haven’t heard of these men or their books, or they just choose  to ignore what they have to say.

In this world the truth is sometimes difficult to find,  especially when you are dealing with the WORDS of God. I hope this letter will  challenge you to dig deeper into this controversial subject. The books in the  following list cover the following subjects:

1.  The  Question: Which Bible?

2.  The Internal  Evidence: What Does God Say?
3.  Old  Testament History of The Text.
4.  New  Testament History of The Text.
5.  The History  of the Transmission of The Text Of The Bible In The  Church Age.
6.  The Manuscript Evidence.
7.  A Comparison of Versions.

If you don’t have the time to  read all of the books on the list, I hope that you will try to read a broad  representative sampling of them.  Don’t  be deceived; don’t be complacent; and whatever you do – don’t take anyone’s  opinion (including any that you may find in this letter) for granted. Examine  the issues, search out the truth, and sift the facts. Read the “other side”  also. There are numerous books on the market that are on the opposite side of  this issue ‑ check them out.

Should you need any other information or if you have any  questions I would be happy to assist you in your search for the Truth. In these evil days God is looking for men who will be “Valiant for the Truth”, not like  God’s people in Jeremiah 9:1, 2, 3, 4, 5


Yours for The Lord  Jesus Christ and His Holy word,

George  H. Anderson Jr.  (Romans 3:4)
