      Most folks think the differences between Bible versions is simply because the translators oriented their work toward particular audiences, modernizing language and making their version and easier read.  Wrong.

     The Identity Of The New Testament Text by Wilber N. Pickering, Thomas Nelson Publishing, 1977, ISBN 0-8407-5744-1 does an awfully good job of demonstrating that the issue with Bible translations is not about the translation but rather about the text being translated.  In a short 254 pages this book provides a primer that asks and answers many of the right question.

      Are not the oldest Manuscripts the best?   See page 121

      What is eclecticism?  See pages 21-25

      Were early Christians careful about their text?  See page 106

      What about the Lucianic Recension and the Peshetta? See page 93

      >>Now, if you want to drive the NIV, NASV crowd crazy... or the Berean Babble Society for that matter, ask them about Lucian and if his Recension actually existed and why they prefer readings from the Peshetta.  Chances are near 100% they know nothing of Lucian's Recension and thing the Peshetta is the new Toyota.<<

      Conflation of Confusion?  See page 171

      What about aberrant text forms?  See page 115

      What of the text types themselves?  See page 50

      Knowing is always better, and having taught on this subject in more than 200 different churches I can assure you that your critics don't know the material and more often than not don't want to learn it.  You take away their Vine's and they've got nothing: they just want to be "Pope," lording Greek about which they know very little over people who know even less.


Make arrangements with your local station to air this program in your area.
This program has seen souls saved and saints edified since 1980.

It was back in September 1980 that I produced my first radio program on a reel-to-reel recorder that stood eight feet tall.  The mechanics have changed, but radio remains a most effective means by which to speak to people as if it were one-on-one. Over the 37 years of broadcasting the results have always been there, perhaps because my program is very different from any and all the other Christian programming out there: give it a try!!


Dear Bro. McLean,

Your gift of the book JWTTY was waiting for me when I got home from a 3 week speaking trip…I have considered your arguments and I disagree with your hermeneutical approach to scripture… to say that all of the Bible is not for us is not my view… I would also disagree that the OT believer or those saved during Jesus’ ministry were saved by any other method than faith alone. I love you, my brother, but I disagree with you on some things…

Wow… that is very scary: to think that the man who heads up a tract company is so very unclear about the gospel of the grace of God.  Mercy, how very sad.

1 Timothy 3:16  And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

Ephesians 3:9  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery

Today's McNuggett: The anti-King James people are like all bullies: look them square in the eye, deal with the facts and they will hide behind their school, wimpering.

  It shall greatly help ye to understand the Scriptures if thou mark not only what is written, but of whom, with what words, at what time, where, to what intent, with what circumstances, considering what goeth before and what followeth after.   Miles Coverdale

  You will reach a “tipping point” of Biblical
 discernment and personal understanding   




  Is Pastor CR Stam guilty of wrong division and
   making a mess of Romans 10:9-10?
