Christian apologist Bobby Conway of One Minute Apologist Ministries just released this 25-minute practical video today. In the video, he takes time to discuss five Bible verses dealing with five situations that often come up when we as Christians are put in a position to understand, explain, and defend our faith. Despite Conway explaining most of the topics well, I would point out that when he gets to number three of the verses he covers, he calls into question the validity of the King James Version.
He states the Dead Sea Scrolls include older manuscripts than the Textus Receptus (TR). That’s what they teach in seminary, but it isn’t true. The TR is a collection of manuscripts where some pre-date the Dead Sea scrolls while others don’t. Furthermore, the age of manuscripts isn’t what determines Biblical or spiritual accuracy. We have the prophet Jeremiah as proof of that. When Jeremiah’s assistant Baruch gave Jeremiah’s written words from God to one of the servants of the king to read to the king of Judah in Jeremiah 36, the king cut it up and burned it. But God had Jeremiah write the words over again and the Lord added more words than what Jeremiah originally wrote. The older one was destroyed, but the newer one was just as accurate and valid. There’s also the case of Moses destroying the original tablets that had the 10 commandments, but God wrote the words out all over again later with new tablets that were equally accurate and valid. God always works to preserve his word on Earth and the KJV, his preserved word in English, is unparalleled in its accuracy.
Overall, this is a good video.
