First & Foremost: The authorized 1611 King James Version is the inerrant inspired Word of God. The translators thereof were inspired by The Holy SPIRIT.
A Few places where this is stated:
- A) Studies In Progressive Revelation Vol. 1 page 258 and page 352
- B) Conference Messages Vol. 1 page 113 #13
- C) Conference Messages Vol. 2 page 146
HOWEVER: The following verses; (With the exception of the "S" in Genesis 1:2 and I Corinthians 12:13) DO NOT apply to capitalization!
- 1) Psalms 33:4, 101:3, 117:2 119:38, 43, 49, 160
- 2) Proverbs 30: 5 & 6
- 3) Deuteronomy 4:2
- 4) I Thessalonians 5:22
- 5) Revelation 22:18 & 19
So as "To give Honor and Glory to The Lord Jesus Christ" a "believer" has the LIBERTY to change capitalization as he so desires. Especially: a) personal pronouns he, him & his; b) word; c) gospel; d) scriptures...to name just a few.
The above paragraph requires amplification. This is NOT my doctrine. This is clearly evident in ALL of the writings of the late Richard E. Rhoades (founder of the Maranatha Bible Society). Compare what this man has written to the text of the KJV, these publications are available through this fellowship’s president, Ken Brandt (Google: “Maranatha Bible Society). Also, concerning “Liberty”, see my article published on the Web, “Henry Dziczkowski: An Elder of the Maranatha Bible Society; Behold His Doctrine”.
Furthermore...If a believer has read through a book 100 times, he than, so as to give more "Honor & Glory" is at liberty to change the definite articles; that & the. See Studies in Progressive Revelation Vol. 1 page 306.
In addition to the capitalization, the following verses are NOT TRUE. Again, not my doctrine, the documentation of what follows is sited, all publications of the MBS.
- 1) Genesis 6:17; 7:4, 21,22 & 23. See Revelation Studies Genesis Vol 1 page 88 & 204.
- 2) Deuteronomy 1:39. See Conference Massages Vol. 1 page273.
- 3) Job 1:13-22. See Job a Comparative Study' page 9
- 4) Acts 12:4 See Studies in Progressive Revelation Vol. 1 page 53
- 5) The word "church" as used in the KJV. See the publication of the MBS “The Body of Christ in Practice” page 2
Should anyone have difficulty reconciling the above with the initial statement of this treatise, the explanation is simple. Take the late founder as an example. You have to have "The Mind of Christ" (1 Cor 2:16). As a stellar example of the logic demonstration by this "mind" see Conference Massages Vol. 2 page 247, the paragraph starting at the 17th line from the top.
The forgoing is intended to be clarification of Doctrine. The realm of "study and scholarship" also requires amplification.
Scholarly pronouncements by Richrad E. Rhoades are in no way to be construed as having any semblance of accuracy but are only intended to give the appearance of a superior knowledge of the subjects discussed.
- ·The number of books in the New Testament; Conference Messages Vol. 1 page 396
- ·"Whosoever will"; Conference Massages Vol. 1 page 211
In general, is R.E.R. has made a declaration concerning where and how many times a word or phrase is used in the KJV, he is usually WRONG!
This fellowship also has a unique version of what they consider “The Gospel”, see my article published on the Web: “The Gospel According to the Maranatha Bible Society”.
All material referenced in this article are available by contacting the Maranatha Bible Society; again, Google “Maranatha Bible Society”, there Website will be the first item to appear…note the two hits that appear directly beneath theirs.
