Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:10-13 KJV

These Synods Have Handed Their Members Over to Bible Deceivers, Frauds, Enthusiasts. Behold! The "Modern Scientific Text" and "Dynamic Equivalence"

 They mock the Scriptures with their "anything but the King James Version" snide remarks and polemics.

 "Amen! Brother bishops, the ELDONUTS have the same progressive position on Bibles."

Readers may remember the fuss caused by LCMS' Kloha over the text of the Bible. I saw the cast of characters and the tired old tactics and thought, "Ho hum."

My ennui was not based upon lack of interest but upon the decades of wanton pollution promoted by ELCA-WELS-LCMS-ELS-ELDONUTs.

Note this well and keep it in mind for each of their pious pronouncements -

Their rejection of the traditional Biblical text began with their acceptance of the:

  1. NIV (more ecumenical than the National Council of Churches)
  2. New NIV (even worse than the old one)
  3. RSV (who erased the Virgin Birth in Isaiah 7)
  4. ESV (regurgitated RSV) 

What do these disasters and almost all modern versions have in common? Besides making millions for the denominations?

They rely on and boast about the lethal combination of text elimination from the three great frauds - Tischendorf, Wescott, Hort - and the continued modern corrupting of the text - plus the atheistic, impulsive, and ridiculous "dynamic equivalence" smoke and mirrors of the apostate Eugene Nida.

That combination of "modern scientific text" and "dynamic equivalence" means every new Bible translation (paraphrases, to be truthful) is a work of fiction and fraud.

They will only allow "modern scientific text" Bibles in the church, classroom, seminary, even the pulpit. Once that is established - and it was, decades ago - the King James Version is excommunicated. It is a secret probation, even a double secret probation - but oh, so effective. The person who reads from the KJV in a Bible study or class is like a bug slowly crawling across the picnic plate. "Flick it away!" And they do.

WELS began mocking the KJV, long before they adopted the old NIV, which was a joke by itself. Any pastor who objected to the NIV was kicked out on the spot.

LCMS is publishing the Mark commentary with the ending of Mark 16 treated like a lepers' colony, separate. Oh yes, the passage is there, but the very title of the prolix commentary gives away the status  of Mark 16:9ff. Now add to that the gold-plated price tag of $100 for the two-volume work covering the shortest of the four Gospels. Oh my.

The laity and most pastors have been kept in the dark. Our little group is gathering and sharing resources for a future volume on the Biblical text and translations.

The best translation is the King James Version, using the traditional text and the precision method of translation modeled by Team Luther and brought to English people by the martyr Tyndale.

The two most influential books in the English language are the King James Bible and Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress. And which are the most neglected today? - so much that a Moby Dick rare printing is worth $3,000 on the market and a Pilgrim's Progress from the same source is worth $50.
