Default Dr. Grady Video...

Many KJVOs look to DR. WILLIAM P. GRADY as a leader of their movement. Here's a video to show ya what he's REALLY all about!
http://www.gradypublications.com/video/intro.htm

Just click the "next" icon near the lower right corner when you're ready to move on to the next part. Sorry, I haven't found a way with my media players to fast-forward through some of the baggage before Dr. Grady's speech.

Please take time to patiently listen to his entire spiel, including the closing comments. You may come away with a different view of KJVO & English versions in general!

Please remember this is a PRO-GRADY video, from Grady Publications. I shall withhold any comments about it till I see what YOU hafta say.

The intro ends abruptly for me at a page that says:

That same afternoon, Pastor Sexton called Dr. Grady at his home to inform him that his Sunday evening meeting was cancelled.

and there never is a video???

Ah, i see from the front page what the problem is:

Requires Windows Media Player 9 or above and Flash Player 8

I consider Flash Player 8 to be MAL-WARE.
Obviously I won't be watching this video.

For someone who is telling the young pastors to preach what's INSIDE the Bible, he certainly spent a lot of time preaching what other men have written (including his own book). Sadly, he also seemed quite "stuck" on himself.

First, there is really no KJVO "movement." Churches that hold this position are largely independent churches. The position is a result of direct or indirect study of the issue and not merely adhering to the party line.

Secondly, Dr. Grady is not a "leader" but merely one of many authors who happened to write on the subject.

Then how come almost all of'em repeat the stuff from the Wilkinson-Ray-Ruckman-Fuller "party line"?

Secondly, Dr. Grady is not a "leader" but merely one of many authors who happened to write on the subject.

Quite a few KJVOs wave his book around as if it's their "Owners' Manual".

To me, Grady's a fancy book salesman. He even hawks RIPLINGER'S stuff!

I watched the whole video. His sermon given at Crown College was not to complain about individuals which use modern versions as much as it was to condemn those institutions that have not consistantly stayed KJVO. He claims that "all" fundamental colleges "must" eventually apostasize, and he implies Hyles-Anderson, Tennessee Temple, Bob Jones, and Pensacola are examples.

His sermon is primarily taken from Judges 12:5-6 (Shibboleth, or Sibboleth?), which he follows with his seven ways to identify false KJV-Onlyism ("Ephraimites"). Interestingly, he also offers a historical narrative of his KJVO experiences. His book Final Authority is prominently displayed.

Dr. Grady clearly holds to the most extreme KJV-Onlyist position, that is, that the English text of KJV now supercedes even the Greek text from which most of it is translated. Although, in his distain for weaker KJVists, he properly points out that not all the KJV text is from the Greek, but also borrows from the Latin and other sources. In fact, he correctly states that there is no single Greek TR to back up the KJV translation.

From the video he essentially endorses both Ruckman and Riplinger. It was facinating to watch Pastor Sexton's attempt at the end to mitigate some of the damage.
