Great Information! All of this long auido file should be listen too, for example information on the http://tinyurl.com/hmrnflx (Papyrus 72) comes in at about 44 minutes into the nearly two hour talk.¬∂ Some of the last tidbits of information come nearly at the end! When this was program was made, I --think-- I found out that Dr. White's preferred Bible was the NASB? I found it interesting, and what many people no doubt suspected, is that many new Bible versions come out, because publishing companies want to make as much money as possible and this isn't done by paying other publishing companies for their versions. What Dr. White didn't point out is that also many publishing companies like the KJV because they don't have to pay any sort of royalties to anyone. ¬∂ As I said the program was loaded with details, such as the NET Bible has a host of useful translating notes for the New Testament, which are of interest in themselves. He didn't apparently like the Old Testament version of that Bible. ¬∂ A good idea is to download the audio file and break into halves and listen to it, but then the whole thing is really no longer than a typical movie would be. ¬∂ You could very well find information you weren't expecting. I did!

Great Sermon! There are many in Asia who understand textual variants in ancient writings, also in copying from one oriental writing and understood by those of another oriental language. It seems that westerners (from England and America, etc.) get into unneeded battles over textual variants. To study is to show yourself approved, and to rely on the Holy Spirit to guide, and proper exegetical tools for many historical documents to help one understand the grammar and the meaning. Big thank you to James White, who helps us understand the historical variations, and the meanings of the texts.

Great Sermon! The King James Bible is far superior to any other version. I used to read the New King James but after comparing Scriptures I realised that Thomas Nelson publishers did NOT make it easier for the modern reader to understand, as they said they would. Other versions also are poorly lacking compared to the Authorised Bible.

Great Sermon! Very good. Most interesting. Tho I love my KJV and use it for memory work, I'm glad to have several other translations for study and comparison.
So helpful I loved this sermon. I thank God for preserving His word! Good info to help me when speaking with KJV only friends. I think a lot of people are 'KJV only' due to ignorance. Thank you for your ministry.

Great Sermon! Despite how people on both sides of the "KJV Only" movement believe and act, God is awakening people to the evil of most modern versions and is directing them back to the KJV. KJV and its foreign equivalents are completely word-for-word and derived from the correct texts and scrolls. The further a translation differs from these translations, the worse it is. It is never good to deviate from complete truth. And second best is as bad as the worst.

Bible Translations I am not a "KJV only" individual, but I do hold to the Majority Text of Scripture as the most accurate reflection of the original autographs. Though I think the KJV is the best English translation we have, but I do recognize there are other translations that are cut from the same cloth as good translations as well.
Great Sermon! Excellent exposition but the audio is so bad that it detracts from the message. Would you please remedy this for future uploads.
