Shaken and Stirred...
I went to bed Monday night emotionally shaken. I started investigating somthing called the "Authorized Version Only" movement.
It started as feedback to the question of "What Bible should I use?". Someone told about all versions but the King James being bad based upon a book by Gail Riplinger called New Age Bible Versions.
Beliving her premise to be wrong, I went on a hunt for some information, finding this on-line article by James White called "Why Respond to Gail Riplinger". We now have dueling credentials, Phd. vs. Phd.
So, what left me shaken? I read the James White article and, if his claims are true, admire his determination to stand against the "New Age Bible Versions" book. That is not, however, what effected my sleep for the last few nights.
I saw how God had protected me from this sort of thinking from early in my college days. You see, the campus organization that I was a part of was not associated but was aligned with much of Mrs. Riplingers thinking.
More to come about this tomorrow.
