This week in our KJV Q&A Series I want to share part of a letter from a pastor who participated in the translation of a modern but bad bible version. I recommend you check out the links at the end of this post as well.

 

“I must under God renounce every attachment to the New American Standard.  .. I’m afraid I’m in trouble with the Lord… We laid the groundwork; I wrote the format; I helped interview some of the translators; I sat with the translator; I wrote the preface…

 

I’m in trouble; I can’t refute these arguments; its wrong, its terribly wrong; it’s frighteningly wrong; and what am I going to do about it? … I can no longer ignore these criticisms I am hearing and I can’t refute them…

 

When questions began to reach me at first I was quite offended. However, in attempting to answer, I began to sense that something was not right about the NASV. Upon investigation, I wrote my very dear friend, Mr. Lockman, explaining that I was forced to renounce all attachment to the NASV… The product is grievous to my heart and helps to complicate matters in these already troublous times… The deletions are absolutely frightening … there are so many… Are we so naive that we do not suspect Satanic deception in all  of this? …

 

I don’t want anything to do with it…

 

[T]he finest leaders that we have today… haven’t gone into it [the new version’s use of a corrupted Greek text], just as I hadn’t gone into it… That’s how easily one can be deceived. .. I’ m going to talk to him [Dr. Gearge Sweeting, then president of Moody Bible Institute] about these things…

 

[Y]ou can say the Authorized Version [KJV] is absolutely correct. How correct? 100% correct!…

 

If you must stand against everyone else, stand.”    Dr. Frank Logsdon
