“Kept Pure in All Ages” is a conference that issues an earnest-but-brotherly call to return to the classical Protestant view of the Biblical text of scripture which led our fathers in the faith to receive the Textus Receptus as the authentic Word of God; especially in light of the radical changes that are coming to both the Greek NT text and our English translations.

I wish I could be at the “Kept Pure in All Ages” conference to hear my good friend, Jeff Riddle, hold forth on the important subject of the purity of God’s Word. Pastor Riddle understands well that in evaluating any version of the Scripture, the text from which it is translated is a crucial factor. A principal reason for retaining the KJV is the text from which it is translated. The extant evidence justifies the conclusion that the Greek edition used by the KJV translators represents the best tradition preserved in the majority of the witnesses to the text of the New Testament.

Dr. Joel R. Beeke

President, Puritan Reformed Seminary, Grand Rapids

In this age when the Coherence Based Genealogical Method of textual criticism is fundamentally altering the most commonly used Greek texts, this academic discussion of a historic Protestant understanding of the providential preservation of scripture is most welcomed.

Dr. Barry J. York

President, Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary

The only correct view of the Bible is to treat it as God’s inspired revelation to mankind to which nothing must be added and from which nothing must be taken away. This view of God’s inspired Word has shaped the lives of countless men and countless churches.  It has made nations great. No wonder President Abraham Lincoln could refer to the Bible as God’s “best gift” to mankind. Let us all get back to it!
Maurice Roberts

Retired Editor, The Banner of Truth Magazine

The verbal and plenary inspiration of the Bible requires its verbal and plenary preservation. Do we have the same Bible that God gave to Moses, the Prophets and the Apostles of Jesus Christ? Do we have an infallible and inerrant Bible we can hold up and say, “Thus saith the Lord”, “It is written”, Sola Scriptura? If yes, then where is it, which is it? The logic of faith is key to knowing. I believe Dr. Jeffrey Riddle and the Rev. Christian McShaffrey are able to help us think biblically and faithfully concerning these things, to the glory of God alone.

Dr. Jeffrey Khoo

Principal, Far Eastern Bible College, Singapore
