“I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name” (Psalm 138:2 KJV).
God hath “magnified [his] word above all [his] name” (today’s Scripture). Dost thou?
The psalmist wrote, “I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me” (119:30). This saint chose God’s Word, His “judgments.” In order for the psalmist to choose “the way of truth,” this implies an alternative—the way of error. So, in verse 104, the psalmist penned, “Through thy [God’s] precepts [teachings] I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.” He “hated every false way” (the way of error): the psalmist hated false teaching!
Notice its exclusivity: “the way of truth.” Regarding English Bible versions, there is only ONE way of truth; there are over 200 false ways!!! Just as the psalmist rejected “every false way,” we too unapologetically reject lies (modern English ‘bibles’ that attack Jesus Christ, contain historical and other doctrinal blemishes, and amazingly, even pervert today’s Scripture that exalteth God’s Word!!). As the psalmist was exclusive to God’s Word (His “judgments”), we too are exclusive to God’s Word (preserved in English in the King James Bible).
Dear saints, if anyone wisheth to belittle us as “Bibliolaters” for upholding the King James Bible (truth) and rejecting modern English “bibles” (error), let us not grow weary, for they also condemn the psalmist AND GOD who both exalt the Holy Bible. By preferring the King James Bible and rejecting modern (counterfeit) “bibles,” we are “magnifying [God’s] word above all [his] name” (today’s Scripture). By highly esteeming the King James Bible, sharing God’s attitude regarding His Word, we are actually worshiping our Saviour; this is why the adversary doth criticize us.
Furthermore, when a King James Bible detractor castigateth thee as a “Bibliolater” (Bible worshipper), thou shouldst politely remind him or her that thy position was necessitated when apostates fabricated a corrupt Greek New Testament and then translated it into English over 200 times. Thou shouldst declare, “I have [unashamedly] chosen the way of truth and I hate every false way!”
