UNINSPIRED ORIGINAL AUTOGRAPHS
My Two Cents
Seeing there are many that have taken the time to defend the King James Bible and many have written in a weighty manner which their peers may understand with it’s textual jargon.
The average Christians are not going to study Greek and Hebrew or manuscript evidence.
I thought to add additional support from a different angle, Common Sense was needed. Outside of showing the average Christian that most other translation read similar to the “New World Translation” in many passages when they differ from the KJV, this might help. If it does not bother a man to know that he really has a Watch Tower Bible then he has some far greater spiritual issue to settle.
Let’s take the examples of the writings of Moses and Paul when it comes to translations.
When Moses spoke to Pharaoh, was what was spoken the original or the translation (Exodus 5 and the rest of the discourse)-that is unless you believe that Pharaoh lowered himself to speak Hebrew??
Exodus 5:2-5: And Pharaoh said, Who [is] the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go. (3) And they said, The God of the Hebrews hath met with us: let us go, we pray thee, three days’ journey into the desert, and sacrifice unto the LORD our God; lest he fall upon us with pestilence, or with the sword. (4) And the king of Egypt said unto them, Wherefore do ye, Moses and Aaron, let the people from their works? get you unto your burdens. (5) And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now [are] many, and ye make them rest from their burdens.
Years later when Moses penned the event, was his translation true to the original spoken word or was it a dynamic equivalent (formal equivalence), a paraphrase or was the original spoken word untrue to the original translation???? If Moses’ translation was not true to the original spoken words of Pharaoh then the original autograph was at best reliable, but not infallible.
And seeing that we have been told time and time again that no translation can be true to the original—then the original was not infallible.
Seeing Pharaoh is dead and cannot verify his discourse and no one has the original translation of the discourse, this leaves those who do not believe in infallible preservation in a hypocritical dilemma.
Moses wrote the original translation years after the event and if those who scoff at the preservation of the KJV, have to believe themselves, that God would preserve the words of a pagan, God hating and murdering madman in order to write the original translating autograph.
When it comes to absolute hypocritical double standards nothing can top those that deny the preservation of the word of God to the English speaking people!!!!!!!!.
Pharaoh mouthed the words “Who is the Lord” (Exodus 5:2: And Pharaoh said, Who [is] the LORD, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the LORD, neither will I let Israel go).
Answer, the One who will preserve your blasphemous words in the original translation.
What is the King James Bible but a continuation of the same practice of preservation?
Psalm 12:6-7: The words of the LORD [are] pure words: [as] silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. (7) Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
Act 22:2-21 (And when they heard that he spake in the Hebrew tongue to them, they kept the more silence: and he saith,)
Tell me when Luke the beloved physician was recording Paul on his SONY recorder and Paul no longer spoke in the original language that the New Testament was spoken in (Greek), what did dear Brother Luke do? Did he hit rewind, fast forward or check the levels on the VU??
Was Luke’s translation of the translation, translated to the original translation? Did Luke copy this in Hebrew and then translate this to Greek or did the Holy Spirit move the pen in a Bi-lingual fashion?
I guess according to many that the original was true in Hebrew, but if they are going to be consistent, then the translation into Greek by Luke could never be infallible (For no translation is–according to them).
I believe in the preservation of the Scripture — no matter what the original spoken words were spoken in.
For you see if Moses or Luke did not translate the original spoken word exactly into the original translation then it is at best just a translation.
In closing when those say that the King James Bible is just a translation they cut their own throat. And if they want to adhere to this then and if they were honest they have to admit that the lost original that they hold as the standard was a translation in many places as well.
Not only does this leave them without a translation or manuscripts that they can cling to as infallible–but the originals as well!
They have no Bible now and if they did have the originals they still would not have an infallible Bible!
Be sure your sins will find you out. You lying hypocrite!
We believed that the infallible God safeguarded his infallible word to the common man. If God cannot he is not infallible. But do not give up hope on the maybe “reliable” Bible.
P.S. Have a nice day!
The author of this work believes without reservation, that the King James Bible is more than just a priceless work of literary art, which it is. But it has indeed been preserved without error by God’s providence as an infallible book that the common man in the English speaking world can hold and own, and the light it can give rest entirely on that man’s faith in it and its Author. And all those who believe otherwise have either been duped, have an unclean motive, are just ignorant or see no issue of importance in having God’s word readily available in an infallible form. No amount of linguist ability can give any extra light if there is doubt to its content, the Holy Spirit will not honour anyone that wants to subject this English Bible to an inferior position.
I shall be happy to furnish those who would like to receive a blessing from a devotional.
