Where is Truth?

“The word of the Lord endureth for ever” 1 Peter 1:25

…”And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you”.

The word of God as recorded in the scriptures has been under constant attack from the time at which it was first written until the present day. The Adversary constantly seeks to attack the foundations to cause confusion and cast doubts upon the truth. Yet for 2000 years since the New Testament scriptures were concluded God has preserved His word – both in the original languages (Greek and Hebrew) and in providing faithful translations of the scriptures – such as the ‘Authorised Version’ (KJV) of the Bible in the English tongue. As 1 Peter 1:24-25 tells us: “All flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.”

The proliferation of ‘modern’ translations of the Bible into English, especially since the revision published in 1881, has only served to cause confusion. The vast majority of these translations have been based on a less reliable edition of the Greek than that from which the Authorised Version was translated and this has led to numerous errors in these versions. It is wise to be aware of the differences and not to be taken in by the ‘Trojan Horse’ enchantment of the promise of ‘more modern English’ which comes at the expense of the truth itself.

For many years the Trinitarian Bible Society has both published the word of God in the Authorised Version (and in other languages) and also provided a defence of that translation in contrast to many modern mistranslations. A number of excellent pamphlets have been produced examining other ‘translations’. Their website is well worth a visit.

However, the TBS now also has a presence on SermonAudio.com where a number of messages may be heard by various preachers in relation to the work of the TBS, the preservation of the word of God and the inaccuracies of other translations. 

Amongst the messages available on that site are a couple by G .D. Buss and B.A. Ramsbottom who are both well known ministers amongst those churches known as ‘Gospel Standard Strict Baptists’, as group of churches which sprang up from the faithful ministry of the Gospel in the early 1800s by such men as William Gadsby, John Kershaw, John Warburton and J.C. Philpot – men of God who loved and proclaimed the Gospel of Free and Sovereign Grace.

The Lord gave the Word – G.D. Buss (10/6/2000)

Hebrews 12:27 – B.A. Ramsbottom (22/9/2007)

I believe the K.J.V. version to be the BEST version & is the Word of God.

Comment by Edward Forsyth

Where can I find commentary on the TBS NT Hebrew translation’s use of the divine name?

Thanks for the help.

Thanks for your question Philip.

You might like to drop the TBS themselves a line and ask them? They are at http://www.trinitarianbiblesociety.org where you will find their contact info, as well as various articles. Have a look through them… the answer might be found in one of them.
