Old Mother Whore of Rome burned the Bible without success.
Now, there are millions of Bibles around the world in every market place.
But, the devilish warping of the Bible via revisions has done more to
destroy the Word of God than any number of burnings.
Do YOU study, and lay to heart, your Bible--
The King James Bible?

ABOUT THIS SOFWARE HE DEVELOPED:

"SwordSearcher features fast searching and easy browsing. It includes several commentaries, dictionaries, topical guides, maps, charts, and illustrations; it is more than a Bible concordance. It offers unique and powerful features which are easily accessed and used. SwordSearcher is written by a Bible Believer for Bible Believers. I am a firm believer that "precept must be upon precept," "line upon line," and "here a little, and there a little." (Isaiah 28:10) My software is designed upon that principle. I have written SwordSearcher to help Christians "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 Timothy 2:15)"

QUOTATIONS
ON THE TEXTUAL RECEPTUS

Various Saints and Observers

It is admitted on all hands that the Text used as the basis of the Authorized Version correctly represents a Text known to have been widely (if not everywhere) in use as early as the second century (for the Peschitta Old Latin Versions, corroborated by patristic quotations afford ample proof of that). On the other hand it is not known that the two Codices we are discussing represent anything but copies of a bad original, made worse in the copying.
Philip Mauro

. . . but a review and comparison of the present and fashionable opinions of biblical critics. We call these the opinions now fashionable; for those who watch the course of this are aware that there is as truly a fashion in it, infecting its votaries, as in ladies' bonnets, medicines or cravats.
R.L. Dabney

The nemesis of superstition and idolatry is ever the same. Phantoms of the imagination henceforth usurp the place of substantial forms. Interminable doubt, wretched misbelief, childish credulity, judicial blindness, are the inevitable sequel and penalty. The mind that has long allowed itself in a systematic trifling with evidence, is observed to fall the easiest prey to imposture. It has doubted what is demonstrably true, and has rejected what is indubitably divine.
Dean Burgon

In addition, the Protestant orthodox held, as a matter of doctrinal conviction stated in the locus de Scriptura sacra of their theological systems, the providential preservation of the text throughout history.
Richard Muller

The Scripture is the library of the Holy Ghost; it is a pandect of divine knowledge, an exact model and platform of religion. The Scripture contains in it the credenda, "the things which we are to believe," and the agenda, "the things which we are to practice.
Thomas Watson

In these scriptures God requires all sorts of people, both men, women, children, and strangers, both learned and unlearned, to read the Scriptures, and to search after the heavenly treasures that are laid up in them, as men search for gold and silver in the ore.
Thomas Brooks

It can, then, with no colour of probability be asserted (which yet I find some learned men too free in granting), namely, that there hath the same fate attended the Scripture in its transcription as hath done other books. Let me say without offence, this imagination, asserted on deliberation, seems to me to border on atheism. Surely the promise of God for the preservation of his word, with his love and care of his church, of whose faith and obedience that word of his is the only rule, requires other thoughts at our hands.
John Owen

Today these sacred texts must have none of the smell of the ancient Near-East upon them; they must be made to speak in an American colloquialism that offers neither a window to the transcendent, nor an entry way to the religious consciousness that animated the communities that composed, preserved and transmitted these materials as a sacred trust. Hence, today we have Bibles that havee been custom fitted to the immediacy of the modern situation, primarily for marketing purposes, but always under the guise of "needing to communicate." One publisher alone, the Zondervan Publishing House, has excelled in this endeavor, aiming for every consumer group imaginable. This, however, is diversification gone mad: The Quest Study Bible, The New Student Bible, Women's Devotional Bible, The Adventure Bible, The Teen Study Bible, Men's Devotional Bible,Couples' Devotional Bible, The NIV Life Application Bible, The NIV Study Bible, Youthwalk Devotional Bible [?!]. This is scandal beyond belief.
Theodore Letis

Q. 6. What was the end of writing the word?
A. That the church to the end of the world might have a sure, known, standing-rule, to try and judge all things by, and not be left to the uncertainty of traditions; John v. 39. Search the scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life, and they are they which testify of me.
John Flavel

If we would destroy the Christian religion, we must first of all destroy man's belief in the Bible.
Voltaire

What strange mistakes have been made by some who have thought themselves able to interpret Scripture by their own abilities as scholars and critics, though they have studied with much diligence!
John Newton

The only antidote to this plight is for those small remnant Reformation communities who still retain confessional and catholic integrity to act as salt and light in this insipid and ever dimming age. With little promise of success they must walk by faith and not by sight and celebrate their distinctives with intelligence, dignity, and winsomeness in hopes of attracting with the full fragrance of the old classic translations those whose senses have been dulled by the pollutants of modernity (2 Cor. 2:14_17).
Theodore Letis

The Old Testament in Hebrew (which was the native language of the people of God of old)and the New Testament in Greek (which at the time of the writing of it was most generally known to the nations), being immediately inspired by God, and by his singular care and providence kept pure in all ages, are therefore authentical; so as in all controversies of religion, the Church is finally to appeal unto them.
Westminster Confession of Faith

This section teaches that the original sacred text has come down to us in a state of essential purity.
A.A. Hodge

I have just spent the better part of the last five years attempting to localize just what was the specific dynamic, or chain of events, that led to this bankrupt state within the modern confessional churches. Obviously we all know that Biblical criticism lay at the heart of the matter, but what I wanted to discover is how and why so many well-armed and forewarned ecclesiastical bodies could all fall in time, one after another, without so much as knowing the process had taken place. Certainly everyone rightly feared and trembled at the German higher criticism, with its speculative theories about sources and carrying out an agenda dictated by the various philosophical schools of German Idealism. But it was while everyone was staring steadfastly at this Philistine, would-be invader of the Church, that time and again an apparent out-flanking took place and fall ensued. How and why?
Theodore Letis

"For an orthodox Christian, Burgon's view is the only reasonable one. If we believe that God gave the Church guidance in regard to the New Testament books, then surely it is logical to believe that God gave the Church similar guidance in regard to the text which these books contained. Surely it is very inconsistent to believe that God guided the Church in regard to the New Testament canon but gave her no guidance in regard to the New Testament text. But this seems to be just what many modern Christians do believe. They believe that all during the medieval period and throughout the Reformation and post-Reformation era the true New Testament text was lost and that it was not regained until the middle of the nineteenth century, when Tischendorf discovered it in the Sinaitic manuscript Aleph and when Westcott and Hort found it in the Vatican manuscript B."
Edward Hills

"They were far too shrewd to feed this disconcerting thirst for ideas with a Bible in plain English; the language they used was deliberately artificial even when it was new. They thus dispersed the mob by appealing to its emotions, as a mother quiets a baby by crooning to it. The Bible that they produced was so beautiful that the great majority of men, in the face of it, could not fix their minds upon the ideas in it. To this day it has enchanted the English-speaking peoples so effectively that, in the main, they remain Christians, at least sentimentally. Paine has assaulted them, Darwin and Huxley have assaulted them. But they still remember the twenty-third Psalm when the doctor begins to shake his head, they are still moved beyond compare (though not, alas, to acts!) by the Sermon on the Mount, and they still turn once a year from their sordid and degrading labors to immerse themselves unashamed in the story of the manger. It is not much, but it is something. I do not admire the general run of American Bible-searchersMethodists, United Brethren, Baptists, and such vermin. But try to imagine what the average low-browed Methodist would be if he were not a Methodist but an atheist!"
H.L Mencken

"The distressing realization is forced upon us that the "progress" of the past hundred years has been precisely in the wrong direction�our modern versions and critical texts are several times farther removed from the original than are the AV and TR! How could such a calamity have come upon us?!"
Wilbur Pickering

"First of all, the Textus Receptus was the Bible of early Eastern Christianity. Later it was adopted as the official text of the Greek Catholic Church. There were local reasons which contributed to this result. But, probably, far greater reasons will be found in the fact that the Received Text had authority enough to become, either in itself or by its translation, the Bible of the great Syrian Church; of the Waldensian Church of northern Italy; of the Gallic Church in southern France; and of the Celtic Church in Scotland and Ireland; as well as the official Bible of the Greek Catholic Church.

"All these churches, some earlier, some later, were in opposition to the Church of Rome and at a time when the Received Text and these Bibles of the Constantine type were rivals. They, as represented in their descendants, are rivals to this day. The Church of Rome built on the Eusebio-Origen type of Bible; these others built on the Received Text. Therefore, because they themselves believed that the Received Text was the true apostolic Bible, and further, because the Church of Rome arrogated to itself the power to choose a Bible which bore the marks of systematic depravation, we have the testimony of these five churches to the authenticity and the apostolicity of the Received Text."
Dr. David Otis Fuller

Over one hundred years ago, in 1863, a convocation of the bishops and archbishops of the Church of England was held. They were meeting to protest and censor the heresy of one of their number, Bishop Colenzo, concerning the Word of God. They issued the following statement: "All our hopes for eternity, the very foundation of our faith, our nearest and dearest consolation, are taken away from us if one line of that sacred book, the Bible, be declared unfaithful or untrustworthy."
Dr. David Otis Fuller quoting Anglican bishops

So, what did they proceed to do? They let Westcott and Hort and the Pope persuade them to pitch all of that confidence in the Word of God into the rubbish bin of German rationalism and liberal open mindedness. English Churchmen are so open minded their brains have fallen out.


HERE IS A QUOTE FROM DR. PETER S. RUCKMAN
SHOWING HOW SOME KJV DEFENDERS
EXALT THEMSELVES.

"Now, take a breather. This stuff is Holy Scripture; it is much, much too heavy for the pabulum-puke baby tummies of A.T. Robertson, Kenneth Wuest, Spiros Zodhiates, Mike Randall, Bob Jones III, Doug Kutilek, Shelton Smith, Machen, Robert sumner, David Sarfield, Nestle, Willmington, Dean Burgon, Edward Hills, Westcott, Hort, David Cloud, Theodore Letis, Arlin Horton or Jerry Falwell. The babies (Hebrews 5:13) need to stay in their cribs."
Dr. Peter S. Ruckman

While Ruckman lists a number of Bible mutilators, some of these men, albeit with their theologically troublesome baggage, have done some investigation in defense of the Textual Receptus which far exceeds the work of Dr. Ruckman. In this quote you see the cultic place he carves out for himself, for his boys in Pensacola are duty bound to avoid Letis and Dean Burgon. I have seen Letis in action, and he gives NO quarter in defense of the KJV.

To lump Letis, Horton, and Burgeon in with Westcott, Hort, Kutilek, and Bob Jones III is damned-to-hell rationalizing. It is false witness and cruel. One wonders if a person who can do this has ever been regenerated, for he can frame his brother with impunity and lead his followers to despise men of God who stand before only Jesus Christ as their judge.

Perhaps the true infant is the one who screams and rages because someone else found a bigger lollipop than he found. This cultic lust to be the resident guru, with a wide eyed gullible following, is unworthy of the Word of God which needs no man to stand on its own.

I have been around, from L.A. to Ethiopia to the Guta Plains of Tanzania, and there are only two beasts that I know of which devour their own while they are still alive-- hyenas and Fundamental Baptists. In fact, if you gut a hyena with a bad shot to the belly, he will run off eating his own entrails. A friend of mine saw a hyena do this one day while hunting. Some of these Fundamental Baptists hyenas seem to need to destroy themselves as some sort of red badge of courage. They are the type that, if told the bunji is too long, would jump anyway. Walk circumspectly, ye Bible believers-- don't jump with them please.

Here is Ruckman on Ruckman:
"Any verse or chapter in a King James Bible is more authoritative than any set of books that any scholar wrote about them."

Amen! As in:
Romans 3:4
"God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written,
That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome
when thou art judged."

By the way, READ ABOUT DEAN BURGON
Ruckman was only a predestined thought in the sovereignty of God when Dean Burgon was warring a good warfare at Oxford as he attacked the two drunks, Westcott and Hort across the way, as they built the foundation on which all modern corrupt bibles are based. Ruckman stands on the shoulders of Burgon, and men like him, and bashes away at these lions in the faith. Well, all lions have fleas, but that does not make the fleas into lions, not even if they adopt the lion as their logo.

Other quotes from Dr. Peter S. Ruckman-- You tell me what this is.

"Those silly asses actually teach that salvation is the same in the Church age, the Tribulation, the Millennium, and the Old Testament."

Ruckman, in spite of Hebrews 11, believes salvation was, in the past and in the future, by works. This is clever of him, and the Pope would love it, but it is not taught in the Word of God he claims to defend. The "everlasting Gospel" is one of faith, for which a man is justified.

We end with a quote of Ruckman which shows that the man can indeed get something right, and, unlike his treatment of Burgon and Letis, we commend Ruckman if he gets one right:

"A man said one time that you could find all of Buddha�s bones and still be a good Buddhist; you could find all of Mohammed's bones and still be a good Mohammedan; and as far as that goes, you could find the bones and corpse of every religious leader who ever lived, and you still could be a good, faithful adherent to that religion. But if you found one bone of Jesus Christ, you could no longer be a Christian. Now, that's what you call scientific, empirical data, man. You can't argue with what I just said. I mean, there it is..."

Take notice though-- Wrestling with Fundamental Baptists is like wrestling with a hog in the mud-- The hog loves it and you go away smelling like a hog.
