    Some time ago "The Trail of Blood" was discussed on this forum and I recall some one presented a case claiming some of the of the statements and facts in the booklet were in error and not supported by scripture. I was having a discussion today with a fellow believer and I tried to search the arcives with no results. Could anyone help me with this?

    Berean, when I am looking for older threads on various forums, I do this. Type "site:nameofforum topic/poster"

    Try googling this:

    site:baptistboard.com trail of blood

    I'm glad this was brought up. Along with the KJVO that I was encouraged to believe, this Trail of Blood teaching/book was encouraged (bad ideas seem to go hand-in-hand, no?). Although I haven't studied in depth yet I anticipate doing so. I've heard, since I left the KJVO movement, that it is not accurate and that the claims made are not very well grounded in historical facts.

    Treat the Trail of Blood as you would any writing of history. Personal opinion permeates all history. There is an element of truth, but not all the facts are accurate.

    This does not alter the fact that there is a trail of blood in history that baptistic churches or groups existed, and that is the important thing.

    We don't discard the KJV because we totally reject the sect of JKVOnlyism. We don't discard the KJV because there are some obvious errors in it.

    These are choices you must make. I don't reject the KJV. I alter my copy. I don't reject the Trail of Blood. I alter the incorrect concepts. It is just another history guide book.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    I don't think the KJV has any more errors than any of the other versions--nor as many as most of the other versions.

    The misguided criticism of the Trail of Blood pamphlet often centers around the citation of a statement of Cardinal Hosius regarding baptist-believers being persecuted since the time of Constantine.

    Several clueless posters were claiming that the statement was a hoax.

    I located the likely source of the statement and posted it. Here is the thread.
