Both the Old and New Testaments testify to the fact that God has promised to preserve His Word pure, so that what He has communicated to mankind, will be available to every generation. “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” (Psalms 12:6-7). “The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever” (Isaiah 40:8). “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:35). “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you” (1 Peter 1:23-25).
Although there are many Bible translations available in English today―all claiming to be “easier to understand” than the King James Version; after careful examination, we have found that to not be the truth. What we have found, is that many deceitful changes have been made in the new translations. We believe God’s promise that He would preserve His Word pure, and we find that true in the King James Version. With that position in mind, we do not criticize the text or translation in our preaching and teaching, but study to find the answers. That perspective has been rich and rewarding over the years.
Ministers of the Word
Pastor Michael Austin, and his wife Sandy, have five children. Their desire is to introduce you to the Lord Jesus Christ, “Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood” (Revelation 1:5); and after that, to see you grounded in the Word of God, “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so” (Acts 17:11).
