This article is written by David Cloud of Way of Life Literature. I think he provides a very balanced and defendable approach to the issue of the preservation of the Scripture (although I may not agree with him on the finer points of some of his arguments). I think David Cloud has provided very good research and resources for those who desire to learn more about this issue, therefore I've reproduced the article here in its entirety and provided links to the same content in PDF and on the Way of Life Literature web site. 

King James Only

There is a lot of debate and confusion surrounding the man-made term "King James Only." It has been popularized in recent years by men who claim they are concerned about a dangerous and cultic view of the King James Bible. Rarely do they carefully define the term, though, and as a result a wide variety of Bible-believing men are given a nebulously-defined label.

Reading books is great. Reading and MARKING your books is even better. Like Mom always said, "Practice makes okay." So, grab a pencil and a book worth reading (not a brain-candy novel) and start working out a system of marginalia.

The Key to remembering, organzing, and using everything you read.

References for using 4x6 notecards as a didactic tool. Ryan Holiday seems to have the easiest system to grasp at first and put into practict. The following is from him (tweaked only a little by me).

  1. If I have a thought, I write it down on a 4×6 notecard and identify it with a theme -- or if I am working on a specific project, where it would fit in the project. 
  2. Most of the time, what I write down are quotes. Or sentences in my own writing, words I like, questions I have, or examples I think might fit somewhere and want to learn more about.
  3. The key to this system is the ritual: Read a book or an article and diligently mark the passages and portions that stand out at you. If you have a thought, write it down on the page (this is called marginalia). A few weeks after finishing the book, return to it and transfer those notes/thoughts on to the appropriate note cards (waiting helps you separate the wheat from the chaff). 
  4. In the top left hand corner of each card, put a theme or category that this card belongs to. 
  5. Helpful tip: If you end up using the back of the card (I do it fairly often), note that on the front of the card.
  6. Periodically go back through the cards.

Image of Who Cares Poster Print

What's wrong with this picture?

Let me first say I own this print; I have it framed where I see it and look at it every day. I even printed up some tracts with this illustration before, trying to motivate Christians in my ministry to evangelize. But there's something wrong with this picture ...two things actually:

  • It depicts a man-centered gospel message. 
  • It's the reason for the modern gospel message.
