dear friends the battle lines are drawn and as a believer in the word of god we have an eternal responsibility to do more than prefer today some pastors say they prefer this music over that this standard over another or the king james bible over some over version tragically preference will not survive a generation already preachers discuss even argue issues and never state their position founded on the word of god from creation to heaven hell salvation and end-times it s an opinion-driven dialogue where is absolute authority after over seven decades of ministry the voice in the wilderness continues to stand for the fundamentals of god s word mind you contending for the faith must include separation from modernistic and worldly trends personally i thought this area was settled many years ago the idea of infiltration versus biblical separation came up for debate long before my ministry began however some seem to have revisited that which is obviously settled by the book coming out from among them being separate and not partaking in the worldly concoctions of our day should not be up for vote yet many churches instead of remaining steadfast in doctrine and biblical distinctives ebb and flow with the changing world tides some pastors whom i have considered friends now are intolerant even hostile to ministries like the voice in the wilderness that continue continued on page 4 ministry headline come join us ·in celebration of the 400th anniversary of the king james bible ·sign the kjb declaration on our website at ·order your commemorative kjb 400th anniversary lapel pin today see back cover for more info for more resources visit ·3 where as 2011 marks the 400 th and w annive ancient hereas th rsary of e king old test the 1611 the re king ja ceived ament man james bible god th mes bi rough gtext known uscripts guar is based on ble as odly m en ps the textus ded and handthe masoretic and w recept 119:89 hereas us majed down by thold testamen related ority te t areas in over 47 sp xt or bye masorete he compiled this divin zantine br ely insp which no gr iritually qual greek ew schol ifie ou ired wo text pr rk ii ti p of translato d scholars ac and w ese m 2:21 rs has before ademically su rescue hereas m or since perior who wed from obscurodern bible ve been en in biblica l la dowed i tim re evolutioni ity being revis rsions have by god nguage st 6:20&2 to unde 1 ii co s rationalistsed updated been heavily alte r 2:17 in and w ii tim and theologica red by men fluenced by 3:8 i th co that de proven hereas the nied insprrupted text ess 4 l liberals 7 [i th disc small vofor 400 years biblical engl iration ess 4 ish and iner arded a 1-8 ps 119 cabulary sim in spiritual po of the king rancy m james plicity ye 9-11 89 wer cla bible is rity 103 10 t so faithful 5 152 aring to lofty readability and w to th po 160 ii congre hereas g tim 3 heights matt etic majesty e original hebr 16 reliability ew and 5:18 as beliegations watchod is not the greek te yet with a surpris xt i cor vers in the sa projections author of conf 14:33 on bi us me bibl ingly e to read g screens ofion so obvio us am recite m and w or stud ultiple bible ve ong users ability to hereas ki of mod y the sc rsions ng ern riptures an the past read in uniso james bi together d cannot evenversions wh ble or as he n se turn toge en reads an arch the scusers hold de ther ar th d preach riptures and w es from together e privilege to to settlehereas the mem the king take james orize and qu their bibles 11:15-17 on the best modern bibl e pr bible a ot vers to luke mos 3 e the bible to church with 19:45-48 ion but ever oponents co 3 acts gether ntinue to switchi james and w plus the 17:1 ng p the k the k in ing ja m g ja mes b ib es b iblle d ec e de l ara clarat
