    As most of you have figured out I like to ask questions. So I'm asking another one. What is BJU's version stand. I have always sorta liked BJU. See I was born in Pickens S.C. which is 45 mins from BJU campus in Greenville. (I know my parents (Im only 16) have moved to Montana dont ask its a long story.)I always thought it would be cool to live with my uncle and aunt while going to college there.

    They use the KJV as their official version for chapel and Bible classes. They are not KJVO, though. They sell other modern versions in their bookstore and many of the students use modern versions.

    Thanks for the link. A free copy of actual testimonials is a blessing.

    Yep, somehow I knew this was coming.

    The Trusted voices on translation is an interesting read. It is certainly a great historical treatment of the controversy.

    As far as that letter, I have seen it before, as well as several letters written in similar fashion in reference to this issue and specifically attacking the positions of BJU, Maranatha, Detroit Theological Seminary, and a few others.

    If you read that letter, he clearly lays out all the good things that BJU is doing in its Bible department, preparing their students to study the Bible, but doesn't refute any of it with Biblical, Hostorical or reasoned evidence, he merely calls attention to it and than disputes it, without backing up any of his attacks.

    Many of the "facts" that Dr. Waite uses in his letter actually come from the same greek word, balogna [ba-low-nee] n a lunch meat. It is made from the spare parts of pigs, such as their ears, snouts and tails.
