My Plea for the Old Sword
Mr J Patton, a well known and respected educationalist, said, “If men read trash they think trash, and if they think trash they become trash!”
The opposite is also true.
If men read God’s truth they will think truth, and if they think truth they will live truthfully.
The Scriptures deliver knowledge of truth and the freedom truth delivers –
“Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”
Ian Paisley unapologetically loved the King James Translation (KJV) of the Scriptures.
He used no other version in the pulpit and wholeheartedly encouraged its use for private devotions.
He knew and studied other translations and would not break fellowship with someone of a contrasting view but the KJV was his first love. Here he tells why.
