James White Interrupts the Apostle Paul

Posted: October 21, 2013 in King James Only Debate

Paul: Today I begin my sermon with “In Isaac shall thy seed be called” from the book of Romans ch….

White: Excuse me. Don’t you know that’s from the OT? The OT was written in Hebrew and you are translating this into Greek. You should be aware that it is well-known among godly scholars that you lose meaning from one language to another.

Paul: I’ll take that under advisement, Mr White. Now as I was saying, “At this time will I come and Sarah shall have a son” and then we read….

White: I’m sorry but you’re doing it again, another quote from the OT. You should explain to your listeners the differences between the Hebrew verse you are reading, and the words that can not be properly translated in the language you are speaking to them in now.

Paul: The words I am speaking are what the Holy Spirit is giving me.

White: With all due respect, Paul, that’s not possible. What you are doing is translating OT Hebrew passages into another language, and then saying that those translations are inspired and we true scholars know that that is not possible.

Paul: Didn’t Jesus say something on the cross in Aramaic that was predicted in Hebrew?

White: That was from a COPY of and OT manuscript and we know that copies can’t be inspired. Only the ORIGINAL was the actual word of God, and since we don’t have an original copy of Psalms, there’s no way to know whether that statement from Jesus was really accurate. At best, it was a dynamic equivalent.

Paul: So you don’t believe that God promised to preserve His words in Psalm 12?

White: No. Psalm 12 is about preserving Israel. Israel are the “words of the LORD” in Psalm 12:6 so Israel was who God promised to preserve, not the words of the Lord. All good godly scholars agree with this.

Paul: So which one of Jeremiah’s writings were inspired after the king had thrown the first one into the fire? (Jeremiah chapter 36.)

White: Well obviously, the first because only originals are inspired. So the manuscript that Jeremiah re-wrote as instructed by God was inferior to the original.

Paul: And when John wrote 7 letters to the 7 churches in Asia, you mean to tell me that only one of those were ‘inspired’?

White: Now you’re catching on, Paul! God might be able to use you yet!

Paul: So all through history, the prophets should have been preaching the law from the tablets of stone.

White: At this rate, I will recommend you for an honorary doctorate!

Paul: So we really don’t have the word of God anywhere?

White: Oh of course we do. They are in the original languages.

Paul: So the language is what was inspired but not the writings? So every cuss word uttered in the original language was inspired because the language is what was inspired correct?

White: No. It was the first writing printed in the original language.

Paul: But the copies of the OT quotes were written in Greek translated from Hebrew so you are saying that none of the OT quotes in the NT were inspired because they were not the original language? And I thought you said that writings were not inspired, only the language that came from God.

White: Umm……..Only what God said originally was inspired.

Paul: In Matthew 4:4, didn’t Jesus quote a verse that had “word” in italics in Deuteronomy 8:3, thus Jesus quoted a word that was not “in the original”?

White: Umm…

Paul: Is what God said originally written down somewhere? Is there a copy of it? Didn’t he say, “Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee IN A BOOK” Jeremiah 30:2.

White: Those books are in the NASB, ASV, ESV, NKJV, NIV (but not the KJV). You can even find the words of God in a few news articles, church advertisements in the phone book, and in Webster’s 1828 dictionary. God said he would preserve words, not books, epistles, letters, etc.

Paul: So do you believe it is an error to tell believers that we actually HAVE a BOOK that is THE word of God?

White: Progress! You could be an apostle one day!

Paul: I personally saw the Lord Jesus Christ as “one born out of due time”. Deacons, please escort this nut case out the assembly.

    Is there any context to this fabrication of nonsense, none of which Dr. White would EVER actually say? Or are you simply content to misrepresent Dr. White for the enjoyment of your followers?

    • drjamesa says:

      Apparently you’ve never read White’s book, or heard his radio show. Some of it, White is blatant about, and the rest, it’s not always what you say but what you don’t say that matters as well (like where is THE word of God).

      • I have read some of White’s books, and his main heresy is not saying that KJV is not the sole word of God, but his Calvinism. If KJV only is the sole word of God, the Greek texts that KJV is based upon are not the word of God, and then the KJV itself would not be the word of God. What White teaches on Bible verses is true; he may be mistaken in his views of particular verses in particular Bible versions, I do not know, I have not studied him that closely. But the fact is, the true word of God exists in more than one English language version of the Bible. If that is not true, there was no accurate English Bible before the KJV English Bible of 1611 AD.

      • drjamesa says:

        I would encourage you to read Will Kinney’s article “Where Was The Word of God Before 1611?”

        Most of those who say KJVOs claim that the Bible is ONLY inspired in the English completely misrepresent the KJVO position which is then repeated ad infinitim by other KJVO critics.

      • Sean Bucholz says:

        Are you going to post my reply to your comment? Or do you not want your followers to see that you have been personally invited to defend your assertions against Dr. White? I’m sure everyone would benefit from a fair dialogue between the two of you, instead of the one-sided, ad hominem you present here. I will send you a tweet when the Dividing Line is live, and you can call in,

      • drjamesa says:

        This isn’t a debate moron, it’s a satire article that includes the logical implications of what White teaches and promotes. If you are so sure about what you profess to be error, then by all means, state your case instead of just lobbing generalized “oh that’s not true” statements. It’s our website, we can post whatever we want to. I don’t owe it to you or anyone else to have to give every single statement or sermons or book entry that an anti-King James author has ever written or said. I also do not need to post book references and video citations on a satirical article. That would defeat the purpose of writing a satirical article: DUH. We have plenty of other articles on this website that address James White’s follies, so instead of ranting like an ignorant donkey, why don’t you quit being so lazy and search the website for the 20 or so articles we’ve already written about White WITH REFERENCES and Scripture.

        Furthermore, I live in Israel and do not feel like calling the United States racking up an enormous phone bill, not to mention, a phone call does not resolve any issues because the person hosting the call controls the format (as White did when he continuously cut off and talked over Will Kinney).
