I've been refining the logic of my statements 17 yrs. postdoctoral Ed.D. in higher education. I organized this yesterday, tell me what you about my theory.
While the entire line of scripture are records, the outstanding record of scripture on earth and the scripture of final authority is the published text and form of the AV 1611 KJV Holy Bibles. All KJV Holy Bibles are editions of the AV 1611 KJV first edition, reprinted billions times. KJV Holy Bibles are the most published and read books of all time.
When Webster collated the English language, 1828, his dictionary matched the KJV Bibles exactly. Language is word definition. The earlier bibles, Wycliffe Bible 1362, Tyndale Bible 1522, Coverdale Bible 1535, Great Bible 1539, Geneva Bible 1560, Bishops Bible 1568, were not completed English. KJV 2 Timothy 1:13 Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus.
The truest scientific explanation of Sola Scriptura Theology is the Record Theory.
The Record Theory independently answers the questions of final canonization (books and words) and final authority. The Record Theory suggests that the Holy Bibles in heaven are identical to the AV 1611 KJV Holy Bibles on earth. The human finger prints (typographical errors, spelling errors, missing words, etc.) document the divine testaments and covenants between God and man.The dynamic evidence of the Purified Text Theory supports the Record Theory.
The evidence is exhaustive, categorical and conclusively demonstrated the manuscript evidence, billions of KJV Holy Bibles, bible canonization, bible doctrine, computational linguistics, the testimonies of millions of Bible martyrs and the entire development of higher education at Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Yale, and Princeton. The words of the AV 1611 KJV Holy Bibles are divinely transmitted, (infallible, infinite, eternal) inspired, preserved, canonized and purified.
KJV Psalms 119:89 For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
5:1 And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
5:2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof ?
5:3 And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.
5:4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.
5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.
5:8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.
5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.
5:11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
5:12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing.
5:13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb
for ever and ever.
5:14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.
#1. You cannot honestly state you have scripture if you believe only the original manuscripts were inspired. There are no original manuscripts. KJV All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
