Here I am again--apologizing for our not posting anything new for many months now! Family, work, church, kid's sports, potty training, etc... have contributed to this most recent silence. I don't know that an apology is needed--these are far more important than any blog. Oh well, this is a short one but I have been chewing on it for a while now.
Here is what Pastor Jack Schaap, First Baptist Church of Hammond, and
"WE BELIEVE THE BIBLE is the Word of God. We believe in the King James Version of the Bible."
SCRIPTURES — "We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Bible. The Old and New Testament are definitely inspired word for word. We accept the Textus Receptus manuscripts from which came the King James Bible. The Scripture is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice."
REWIND APPROXIMATELY 100 YEARS...
Here is what James Gray had to say in 1909 regarding inspiration in The Fundamentals Volume 2 Chapter 1:
"Let it be stated further in this defnitional connection, that the record for whose inspiration we contend is the original record — the autographs or parchments of Moses, David, Daniel, Matthew, Paul or Peter, as the case may be, and not any particular translation or translations of them whatever. There is no translation absolutely without error, nor could there be, considering the infirmities of human copyists, unless God were pleased to perform a perpetual miracle to secure it."
One question begs asking--who changed their belief on the Holy Scriptures? Stay tuned for more to come...
