Common Sense Tells Us That We Must Have An Inspired Bible Today

Psalms 12:6-7, “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

God gave us His solemn PROMISE in our text passage of Scripture, that He would keep and preserve His "pure words" forever. Psalms 119:140, "Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it." I am saddened any time that I hear a preacher saying that the King James Bible is the "best Bible today," but it is not perfect nor inspired by God. I cannot think of anything more tragic in this generation, than to know that preachers do not think our omnipotent Creator is able to preserve the Words that He inspired millenniums ago.

Also, the entire foundation upon which the Devil's Bible corrupting movement is based is the fallacy that we do not have a perfectly inspired Holy Bible today in the world. This erroneous thinking has opened a Pandora's Box, encouraging everybody and his dog to translate and publish another Bible revision. The 54 scholarly men whom God used to give us the inspired King James Bible, meticulously produced a literal translation, not a paraphrase. They were so careful not to ASS-U-ME anything, that they used italics to highlight any added words which weren't in the original languages. I encourage everyone to purchase a more expensive King James Bible, so you will see what words are italicized.

By doing this brilliant thing, the 54 translators of the King James Bible are allowing YOU, the reader, to look over their shoulder, to decide for yourself what God meant (and not them arrogantly making that choice for you). There is not a single English Bible in existence today, other than the precious King James Bible, which contains this type of honest scholarship.

Please read Matthew 5:18, “
For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” Jesus said that not one jot nor tittle (the smallest grammatical marks in the Greek alphabet) would pass away until all be fulfilled. Yet, hundreds of modern English Bible perversions remove large sections of God's Word, eviscerating the truth and corrupting the Word of God for profit. Jesus promised that the true Word of God would NEVER be corrupted. God's Word is incorruptible (1st Peter 1:23).

Also, John 14:6, “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Jesus is THE TRUTH. The Bible is the Written Word of God; Jesus is the Living Word of God. Dr. John R. Rice (1895-1980) rightly called them "twins." So how can Jesus be THE TRUTH, perfect and without error or sin; but then God's Word in modern times has become corrupt, flawed, contains many errors, is not 100% truth, could have been translated much better and it is now unreliable? Does that make any sense, at all? No, it certainly doesn't. We cannot have a perfect incorruptible Savior, but then a flawed corrupted Word of God. Remember, Jesus is the Word of God. So if any Bible revision is imperfect, it is not inspired and CANNOT be God's Word. If I believed that the King James Bible I hold in my hand is imperfect, contains errors and is not inspired, I would toss it into the nearest garbage pail and never go to church again!!!!!!!

And by the way, there are two main thought patterns pertaining to the meaning of "inspiration" concerning God's Word:
  1. The first thought pattern is that inspiration merely refers to the actual PROCESS of God breathing our His original Words, so any translation cannot be inspired. This is what 95% of the clergy believe today, and it sickens me.
  2. The second thought pattern is that inspiration refers to the WORDS themselves. They are inspired because they are in fact, GOD'S WORDS. So if a translation is done properly, then those inspired Words still remain inspired, regardless of what language they are translated into. This is what I believe, a rarity these apostate days!
2nd Timothy 3:16-17, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. Those five word “given by inspiration of God,” are the 54 translators English rendering of just one Greek word, theopneutos. The Greek word Theo means "God," and pneustos means "air, or breath." Hence, the Bible is breathed by God, or as Jesus said (quoting Deuteronomy 8:3): Matthew 4:4, “But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.If we are commanded to live by every Word of God that is breathed from the mouth of God almighty, then we need an EVERY WORD BIBLE!!! That is common sense!

I contend boldly without hesitation that we have that EVERY WORD Bible today in the King James Bible. If not, then please tell me which Bible is it, because I must have EVERY WORD to obey Matthew 4:4. Any honest person KNOWS that the King James Bible is THE ONE BIBLE for English-speaking people in the world today. All of the modern Bibles corrupted the deity of Christ, removing every mention of people worshipping Jesus. Look for yourself!

Dear reader, what good would preservation be without inspiration? I mean, what good would it have been, and what purpose would it have served, for God to keep His promise to preserve His pure Words, if those Words have along the way in history become flawed, corrupted and questionable? Does that make any sense to you? I mean, really, does that compute? I think not. There would have been absolutely no reason for God to keep and preserve His Words, if they weren't perfect and inspired Words.

The Bible promises that someday in the future, Jesus will resurrect every born-again saint (1st Corinthians 15:51-58; 1st Thessalonians 4:13-18; Philippians 3:21). Jesus will take every dead, corrupted and weak cell in our body and completely renew it from mortality to immortality!!! History records that the Apostle Peter was burned alive upside down at the stake for his Christian testimony, preaching the truth of the Gospel. Jesus will take Peter's remains from the earth and put each and every cell back together again, better than new, giving him immortality (eternal physical life). What power! My mind cannot even fathom such omnipotence in our great God. And yet, over 95% of preachers today will try to convince you that God was too incompetent and impotent to preserve His pure Words for today. They'll lie to you and say that at best all we have is a flawed translation of a translation of a translation.

Have you ever pondered the mindboggling question of how big the universe must be? Can there be an end? If so, what is beyond that further reach of space. Scientists concur that the universe is continually expanding, but into what prey tell me? There is only one logical answer, GOD. Where did time begin? Is it even possible for time to begin? If so, then what existed before time? You cannot answer, "nothing," without violating every law of nature and science!!! Again, the only plausible and logical answer is GOD. So do you think such a powerful God couldn't preserve His inspired Words for 2022?

Is there anything too hard for God to do. Most foolish preachers, evangelists and Bible professors today would say, yes, God cannot give us a perfect Holy Bible. The sad truth is that 90% of the shameful pastors who deny the inspiration of the Bible, are merely repeating what they heard other preachers teach. And they are also afraid to go against the common consensus, which is the heresy that ONLY the original autographs of the Bible were inspired by God.

Dear friend, your entire mindset hinges on what you believe about the Holy Bible. The heathen world errantly thinks that rich men wrote the Bible to control the masses. Nothing could be further from the truth, but only you can weigh the evidence and make your own decision. I chose Jesus Christ as my personal Savior at age 13 in 1980, and the blessed Holy Spirit of God has lived inside of me ever since!

I worked with an atheist many years ago, named Mike, a peculiar fellow, who believed that during the evolutionary process that the more superior apes (Neanderthal men) dominated the weaker of the species. So the lesser apes decided to be clever and create a religion, so they could have something that the greater apes couldn't have. Sadly, this is what Mike believed. I witnessed to him, but he wouldn't hear any of it. That is so tragic.

If you think that the Bible has errors in it, then you'll never take it very seriously as we ought. In fact, you'll very likely end up with a dozen or more Bible versions on your bookshelf, which I have seen again and again in deceived churchgoer's homes. The Devil has tricked them to think that God hasn't given us ONE perfectly inspired Holy Bible today. So they languish in mediocrity and go from one church to the next, many living the Christian life without ever being born-again (by the true seed of the Word of God - Luke 8:11).

Dear reader, you cannot be saved from corruptible seed. It is impossible! Anyone who says that they were saved from a Devil's Bible is a LIAR!!! Most churchgoers in Baptist churches today who think they are saved today, are still lost in their sins. If you think that you turned away from your sinful behavior to get saved, in addition to your faith in Christ, YOU DIDN'T GET SAVED. You merely got more religious!!! You will never be saved until you CEASE from all your WORKS (Hebrews 4:10-11; 6:1) and cast ALL of your complete faith upon the Dear Savior (John 6:40; Galatians 3:26; John 6:47; Acts 16:30-31; 1st Thessalonians 4:14).

I've often said, and will continue to warn everyone, that the MOST DANGEROUS PLACE for a Christian youth today is BIBLE COLLEGE!!! I'm talking about the popular Pensacola Christian College (PCC), who in their Statement of Faith deny that we have an inspired Bible today. PCC thinks that only the original manuscripts were inspired by God. Sadly, that is also what Bob Jones University (BJU) believes too. And tragically, since 2008 when Pastor Jack Schaap (one of my beloved former Bible teachers At Hyles-Anderson College) the First Baptist Church of Hammond no longer believes that the King James Bible is verbally inspired by God. They officially teach now that only the original autographs were inspired. It is so shameful. Pastor Jack Hyles is upset in Heaven, I know it! Read what Dr. Hyles said about inspiration:
“Every word in this Bible is inspired by God almighty!” —Dr. Jack Hyles (a great quote from the classic sermon, “A Friend At Midnight.”)

“The only inspired Words of God are in the King James Bible!” —Dr. Jack Hyles (an awesome quote from the needful sermon: “THE REAL BATTLE!”)
Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) believed and taught everyone that the King James Bible is INSPIRED and without any errors in it, which he admittedly didn't believe in his early ministry before about 1980, because he says that seminary messed him up at Bible college. You show me a pastor who denies that we have an inspired Holy Bible today, and I'll guarantee you that he's been messed with in some religious seminary. I thank God that Pastor Jack Hyles loved THE TRUTH, and was willing to admit when he was wrong and move toward the right position.

Sadly, most preachers today refuse to admit their errors, and will defend their false teachings to the grave! 1st Peter 1:22, “Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently.” We don't have many pastors today like Dr. Jack Hyles, who had a pure heart of love for God, truth and people. That is my heart's most earnest desire every morning when I wake up, to be pure of heart in all that I do. I think that by God's grace I am that servant of God. RIGHT DOCTRINE MATTERS!!! But how can you have the right doctrine unless you have the right Bible? I find no fault in the inspired King James Bible!!!

Pastor Dwight L. Moody (1837-1899)

“If a man is going to walk with God, he must walk in the old paths, for God has not changed one whit.” —Pastor Dwight L. Moody
