Even though I wouldn't claim the Sword is apostate it definetly embraces false doctrine. Shelton Smith is nothing more than a pompus windbag that must have complete control. Not only this but this sham of a paper drags Dr. Rice's name through the mud. They heavily push KJVO'ism and would have one believe Dr. Rice believed this. This is nothing more than a blatant lie. Dr. Rice frequently used the ASV 1901. I have the utmost respect for this great man of God. As for Shelton Smith well he's nothing more than a legalistic propaganda machine.
