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.
