The Revision Revised – Preface

By | 2017-05-01T05:25:05+00:00 May 1st, 2017|Categories: The Revision Revised|Tags: , |

PREFACE. The ensuing three Articles from the “Quarterly Review,”—(wrung out of me by the publication [May 17th, 1881] of the “Revision” of our “Authorized Version of the New Testament,”)—appear in their present form in compliance with an amount of continuous solicitation that they should be separately published, which it would have been alike unreasonable and ungracious to disregard. I was not prepared for it. It has caused me—as letter after letter has reached my hands—mixed […]

Being Proud of Your Heresy

When it comes to the foundation of Christianity, the Bible, humor seems to be out of place.  But occasionally the enemies of God’s word provide us with a good laugh by telling the truth about their ungodly intentions.

Not only is this page from NA27 confirming that it is produced in agreement with the Vatican and that the Vatican has supervising authority when it comes to changes to […]

Well what’s your methodology?

A common question that arises from those who support the unbiblical practice of textual criticism is, “Well what methodology do you use?”  or, “Your methodology can’t produce a text!” and other such nonsensical statements.  Most of these type of comments are usually from people who get their arguments from James White.  In a previous post, Presuppositions of Textual Criticism Examined, I dealt with the presuppositions of textual criticism from a Biblical perspective.  When we accept the […]

Presuppositions of Textual Criticism Examined

By | 2017-04-25T15:03:23+00:00 April 24th, 2017|Categories: Confessional Textual View, Textual Criticism|

It’s been some time since I’ve posted due to work and building up the Miskatonic University site. But now that I have time, I’m going to focus on three of the canons of textual criticism and the assumptions one must make to affirm them. The three canons will be provided followed by a short analysis showing their inherent arbitrariness.

The shorter reading is best (Lectio brevior praeferenda).

The shorter reading (unless it lacks entirely the authority […]

Of the Divine Original – Introduction Part 3

WITH AN ANSWER TO THAT INQUIRY, HOW WE KNOW THE SCRIPTURES TO BE THE WORD OF GOD.

PREFATORY NOTE.

THIS interesting treatise originated in the request of several persons, who had heard Owen preaching on the subject, that he would publish the substance of what he had preached. It broaches the great argument of the experimental evidence in favor of the Christian revelation, which he afterwards developed more fully in his “Reason of Faith” (see […]
