Where is the Word of God today?

Postby bibleprotector » 26 May 2014, 23:01

The King James Bible only view is actually arguing that God has revealed His Word fully. If we take away for a moment the idea of “King James Version”, and just consider this: Where is God’s Word today? Where is it perfect? Who has access to it?

It is a fact that good Christians have used many versions, indeed, in various languages, and this is true for centuries before the King James Bible ever existed.

But come to today. Where is God’s perfect Word, exactly? At one time it was in Hebrew and in Greek. At one time it was in many translations. But do we have certain knowledge that God’s Word fully exists in ONE PLACE in perfect form today?

And should we believe that?

There is an excuse that says that since God has allowed His Word to be scattered, and to be generally available in such a wide variety (so that up to 5% of it may be in variety, or that just 0.01 % is uncertain) — How can the perfect all powerful God allow His Word to be never perfect in one place today? Just because it wasn’t perfectly present in a single volume in, say, 1453 A.D. ...

“And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.” (2 Peter 3:4).

Just because the Bible was not perfect in one version in 1453 does not mean that it is not perfectly in one volume today.

Entropy, or loss of information, that is, the liability to error does exist. Are we to think that the error of presentation of the Word of God is increasing? Apply that law logically, and the vast amount of varying modern versions should show that error is multiplied.

On the other side, we are told that scholars are gaining knowledge, that progress is being made in the fields of criticism, and that textual research increases all the time.

“Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” (2 Timothy 3:7).

Is the wisdom of men, the knowledge of those Bible scholars who continually back up new versions, really a gift of God to the Church?

While we don’t need a Latin priesthood to INTERPRET the Scriptures, why substitute HEBREW and GREEK scholars to give children of God their Scriptures. Or are all scholars children of God? (Can you be sure that all translators of modern versions are "orthodox"?)

Finally, and most importantly, the real issue is the spirit of error. The Spirit of Truth claims that full truth is fully accessible. The spirit of error argues that no person can have all the truth, that no Bible can be totally correct, etc.
