   In Defense of Traditional Bible Texts

"The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever."
. . . Psalm 12:6-7 . . .
 

We sincerely need your help to support the battle for the inspired, inerrant, verbal, plenary, preserved, Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek Words of God underlying our King James Bible. We have a plan, but we need help to accomplish it. Please read carefully the reasons for the battle and the help that is needed, which follows:

THE BATTLE
    False Views About the Greek New Testament Variants According to Three Current Books By Fundamentalist Leaders
    
    1.  QUOTES FROM
    Bible Preservation and the Providence of God
    By Bob Jones University's Chairman of the Ancient Languages Department, Dr. Samuel Schnaiter, et al.

    1.    page 31: [Quoting with approval]: "Warfield goes on to point out that the text of Scripture is substantially unaffected by the variations."
    2.    page 105: "Recall that there is only a small proportion of passages where manuscripts substantially disagree."
    3.    page 120:   "The variants have minimal importance to preservation because they are comparatively few, . . ."
    4.    page 247: "In spite of all the uproar, our first five chapters stressed that these differences affect very few passages, . . ."
    5.    page 250: "Greek manuscripts are not the main cause of differences among translations, and even language development accounts for only a few dozen differences."

        2. QUOTES FROM
    God's Word in Our Hands--The Bible Preserved For Us
    Edited, written, and endorsed by many of Bob Jones University's Board members, Graduates, Teachers, and Friends

    6.    page 152:  Mincy wrote:  "The happy conclusion for the one who takes the time to examine them is that there is very little difference between these texts [the Alexandrian, Byzantine, and Received Texts]."
    7.    page 212:  Quoting Dan Wallace with approval, Davey wrote:  "These differences are weighed against one another, these differences are so minor that they neither show up in translation or affect exegesis.'"
    8.    page 294: Bernard wrote:  "Nothing of the autographs is lost.  Everything is preserved among the copies.  What differences there may be among the copies are minimal and solvable."

        3. QUOTES FROM
    From the Mind of God to the Mind of Man
    Edited, written, and endorsed by many of Bob Jones University's Board members, Graduates, Teachers, and Friends

    9.    page 85:  [Minnick quoted with approval]:  "Westcott and Hort themselves believed that there is actually very little difference between the two major families of manuscripts.
   10.    page 85:  [Minnick quoted with approval]:  "Hort's estimate means that if all of the substantial variation between the families was grouped together in one place it would combine to occupy less than one page of my entire Testament."

    The Need for TRUTH About the New Testament Greek Manuscript Variations

In view of the preceding ten grossly erroneous statements on the subject of New Testament Greek Manuscript Differences, I appeal to you to help our Bible For Today ministry to re-print Dr. Jack Moorman's book entitled: "8,000 Differences Between the Textus Receptus and the Nestle-Aland NT Greek Texts."  It is 536 pages in all.  If these Fundamentalist brethren are wrong on this very important question, how many other major points can they be wrong in this battle for our Bible?  With this book available as a hardback book, it could be put into the hands of hundreds of those who now have fallen in line with those favoring the Greek Critical Text.  Within these 8,000 differences in the Critical Text, there are also at least 356 doctrinal passages which are in ERROR.  

        HELP NEEDED--THANK YOU !

Can you help us?  The printing will cost about $10,000.00 for 2,000 copies delivered.  All gifts to the Bible For Today are tax deducible and you will be given a receipt for your gift.  Pray about this and then give as the Lord might lead you.  Pray that others might give also.  Thank you for your prayerful assistance to this important project.
