    How would you define the doctrine of bible preservation (that God would exercise providential care to preserve His Word throughout the ages)?

    What scripture(s) would you use to back up your view?

    Do you think this preservation extends to the "truth" represented by His Word..or down to every single word..or down to almost every word?

    I don't have a hidden agenda..I've been studying this doctrine and would appreciate any input.

    peace,
    kman

    in Ps 119:89 God promises to preserve it forever in heaven. i assume this is the perfect original, if that's important for anyone here.

    on earth God preserves it thru a plethora of documents, incl the multiple KJB revisions, MSS underlying the TR, DSS, LXX, Byz MSS, Alex codices, papyri, ostraca, etc. none of these can individually claim to be identical to the heavenly original, but all shd have some claim to Scriptural authority (2Tim 3:16), albeit their having 2% or so minor substantial variance one with another.

    The verse tells it all.

    Forever settled in HEAVEN!

    Not forever settled on Earth in English in the KJV.
