|The EHV - Not a Translation But a Version of One Already Done|
The first onslaught against the Bible as God's Word was the fraudulent activity of Tischendorf, Wescott, and Hort. They used Tischendorf's fake finds as excuses to start playing with the traditional text of the New Testament. Wescott and Hort invented rules which are hilariously contradictory and self-serving. "The more difficult reading is preferred." More difficult for a Christian or for a fraud? Naturally the rules can be debated, so there is no final solution.
The three text amigos did their job. They gave everyone a license to cut and paste the New Testament text. Most clergy are like Walther, with hardly any Biblical language ability. Very few of those clergy and professors know anything about text criticism and its history. That puts the vast majority of all Christians at the mercy of a few people in the world.
Another poisoned pill from Larry, Moe, and Curly is the new rule. Have you heard it? No? "We must have a Bible based on a scientific text." That is a little gentler than NO KJV IN ANY EDITION!
They have exiled the KJV and such variations as New KJV, KJV 21 because of their faithful text. The new Bibles - ESV and NIV - have carved up the Bible pie, for they are favored by:
- All denominations
- All colleges and seminaries
- All theological programs.
The only person they really shun is moi, and the only Bible they genuinely shun is the KJV. Yes, the KJV not only maintains the concept of precise translation, but is a direct descendant of Luther's German Bible, a brilliant achievement by the Reformer and his team of translators. They influenced Tyndale, whose translation was edited into the KJV.
|Objective Justification blends well with new translations - ask the NIV fans in WELS.|
Is ELDONA's Calvinist ESV Really a Conservative Translation?
Some verses from the ESV
like silver refined in a furnace on the ground, \
purified seven times.
you will guard us [or him] from this generation forever.
