The "Originals"

The "Originals"

People say that God's word can only be found in the "originals." What's wrong with this? The originals are gone. God did not preserve them. And alas, there are only copies of 100's of Greek texts, many of them varying from text to text. If the "words" of God were only to be found in the originals, they are gone forever. If they are found only in these varying Greek texts, one scholar's guess is good as another. However there is an alternative: God actually fulfilled the promise of Psalms 12:6,7.

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

According to this text, we should have the very Words of God. Which would show, Jesus Christ really did mean what He said in Matthew 24:35.

Matthew 24:35
"Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away." KJV

Don't be fooled by the claims of the so-called scholars. God has preserved His words. We have the scriptures given by inspiration of God according to 2 Timothy 3:16.

2 Timothy 3:16
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:" KJV

(context is the last days of the church age).

With superior manuscripts from Antioch

Acts 11:26
"And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch." KJV

Superior translators.

Psalms 68:11
"The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it." KJV

During the Philadelphian period of church history

Revelation 3:8
"I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name." KJV

Under authority of a king.

Ecclesiastes 8:4
"Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?" KJV

God preserved His Words in the English text of the Authorized King James Bible of 1611.

Someone who uses "modern versions", can only hold a "reliable translation" of a corrupt text from Alexandria, Egypt (Siniaticus & Vaticanus)

Deut 17:16-17
16 But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way.
17 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold." KJV

People clam "only the originals were inspired", when they are no such things as the "originals" any longer.


I have utmost confidence in the Lord my God's ability to get His Word to me the way He wanted it.
