The Absurdity of Anti-KJV Rhetoric

A Low View of Pastors & Parents

Authorized Review – Decidedly Different: An Admission That Doctrine is Affected

Introduction In this review of Authorized: The Use & Misuse of the King James Bible, I want to demonstrate a critical error in Ward’s thinking as it pertains to the use of multiple translations. Ward claims that there are no major doctrines affected between the KJV and modern translations.  “No major doctrines are affected. ButContinue reading “Authorized Review – Decidedly Different: An Admission That Doctrine is Affected”
