Textual Criticism: The Woeful History of Attacks on the King James Bible

These sermons and teachings were preached over a period of several weeks in early 2016 by Pastor Nelson Turner in response to an inquiry made by a listener to the AV1611 Hour radio program which is broadcast weekly at 8:30 PM (Eastern Time Zone) on WINB international shortwave radio.


Using the word of God in the English language, the King James Bible, as the infallible source of answers to all questions concerning what the Lord God has revealed to us; plus other texts in support of the Bible’s witness, Pastor Turner discusses in detail the origins, evolution, target, spirit and results of so-called scholarly criticism of the King James Bible. While purporting to have a worthy purpose, the end of all such criticism has been – if possible – to sow confusion and doubt, and to replace and intermingle God’s word with the spirit and words of men. The fruits of this effort over more than a century have been devastating to the visible church. Like the Pharisees of old, the textual scholars are outside the knowledge of God and seeking to prevent others from entering.


Pastor Turner, with a sincere concern for the wellbeing of the sheep, is assured in warning his listeners, and those with ears to hear the Good Shepherd, to have nothing to do with the workers of iniquity and their unfruitful works of darkness seen in their blasphemous disregard for Holy Scripture. According to the Epistle of Jude verse 16-21:


“These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage. But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.”


If you have honest questions or observations about matters of faith resulting from your study of the King James Bible, Pastor Turner invites you to write to him at Bookland@Comcast.net.


May this “special study” be a blessing to the listener by God’s grace.
