Dr. D. and the KJV

I didn't know the federal penitentiary system allowed Kent to decorate his jail cell with his dinosaur bone collection...

I believe Kent Hovind was never competent to teach the Bible, let alone run an "apologetic" para-church ministry defending creation against evolutionary theory. In recent years, as his tax fraud has been exposed and he is now a federal inmate, he was not only incompetent, but also morally unqualified to speak on behalf of Christ's church. His antics, both past and present, have ruined reputable apologetics, in my mind. Just read his wikipedia entry and you can see how the author's just take cruel delight with documenting in scrutinizing detail his personal woes. Anyone who was genuinely converted under his teaching only testifies to the power of God's grace to reach past the messenger.

Before he was carted off to the slammer, Dr. D. did a short little video explaining why he believed the KJV was the best translation a Christian could use. James White has provided three, short video responses that not only dismantle every agonizing error Hovind utilizes in his presentation, but also gives a fine summary of the history behind the transmission of our biblical text. Believe me, how Hovind argues on this video is how I use to argue when I was an up-and-coming KJV-onlyist.

Hey Fred,

Joel Osteen and Rick Warren are evangelicals, and you are a evangelical. Billy Graham has some wacky teaching on Hell, he's an evangelical, and so are you.

The local, pro-homosexual United Methodist church uses modern versions, and you use modern versions.

Uh-oh.

Sounds like I got some good material, huh?

No, just sound like you got problems, Mr. Kent.

He certainly has problems with the use of the non-sequitur.

An IFB makes some bad points and a King James apologist uses bad arguments. Islamics prefer the Critical Text over the TR.

It is a good thing that James White got ahold of these important videos to debunk.

You are correct about the non-sequitur.
