Thanx, C$K, for closing the other Ruckman thread. I reckon some people forgot there IS a Calvinism-Arminianism forum, and THAT'S where such discussions belong. MEANWHILE, BACK AT THE RANCH... Let us look at the dr.s weird views, both on the KJV and some other things. In 1970, he released a book, THE CHRISTIAN'S HANDBOOK OF MANUSCRIPTS EVIDENCE in which he asserts the English of the KJV corrects the Greek from which the NT is translated. The book actually has a chapter called "Correcting the Greek with the English"! In it he wrote,"Mistakes in the A.V. 1611 are advanced revelation" (p 126).One of those "advanced revelations" is the rendering "churches" in Acts 19:37 when the Greek refers to TEMPLES. Here's a summary of the teachings of Ruckman as far as the KJV goes: 1.) The King James Version itself is given by special revelation; 2.)The KJV is not just a version, it is the actual preserved Word of God; 3.)The KJV is superior to any Greek or Hebrew text of the past, including even the Greek and Hebrew texts from which the KJV was translated. 4.)The reason for "3" is because God has given "advanced revelation" or "advanced light", above and beyond those Greek and Hebrew texts. 5.) So miraculous is the KJV that God has given special revelation in the words in italics in the KJV, in the very order of the books, chapter and verse numbers, and even the fact of its name - the "King James" version. 6.)It is doubting the preserved Word of God to look into the meaning of Greek or Hebrew words. The KJV is the inerrant Bible, why look at original language meanings? When the KJVOs who support Dr. Ruckman can get past these zingers, we'll return to the subject of his False prophecies, which went untouched in the thread just shut down.
