There seems to be widespread contempt for the Bible-based belief that God has preserved His exact Hebrew and Greek words intact and those words have never been lost. The modern English Bible versions are translated from a kind of text that comes from the heretical theories of modern textual criticism. These heretical theories stemming from Modernism reject the clear promises of God Almighty that He will preserve His words. This is not surpising, seeing how Bible prophecy teaches there will be increasing apostasy until the Lord returns. Rejecting what God has clearly said is a huge step toward apostasy. I believe that all of the exact words which God perfectly inspired are perfectly preserved by God through absolutely perfect copies of the autographs. Every one of those exact Hebrew/Aramaic and Greek words can be placed in a box and we can be confident that those words are Scripture given by inspiration of God and there are no other words of Scripture to be found anywhere. Those words have never been lost and they never will be. All translations into any language should be based on those exact words. Why do I have such confidence? Because God's promises cannot fail! I do not need to see the originals to be sure we have perfect copies. God cannot lie. My position of the Bible text is based on Scripture. What is YOUR position based on...human reasoning? Here are some of the verses that teach the preservation of God's words: Deuteronomy 4:2; Deuteronomy 8:3; Deuteronomy 29:29; Joshua 1:7-8; Psalm 12:6-7; Psalm 119:89; Psalm 119:111; Psalm 119:152; Psalm 119:160; Ecclesiastes 3:14; Isaiah 30:8; Isaiah 40:6-8; Matthew 4:4; Matthew 5:17-18; Matthew 7:24; Matthew 24:35; Matthew 28:20; Mark 8:38; John 10:35; Colossians 1:17; 1 Peter 1:23; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 John 1:2; Revelation 22:18-19. Take the time and look up each of those verses and pray about it. "The OLD TESTAMENT IN HEBREW (which was the native language of the people of God of old) AND THE NEW TESTAMENT IN GREEK (which at the time of the writing of it was most generally known to the nations) BEING IMMEDIATELY INSPIRED BY GOD, AND BY HIS SINGULAR CARE AND PROVIDENCE KEPT PURE IN ALL AGES, are therefore AUTHENTICAL" - The London Baptist Confession of 1689.
