The preservation of God’s holy and inspired words is self-evident as promised within the covers of the Holy Bible. It is in fact, quite amazing for Christians to believe that the only inspired Holy Bible is an invisible Bible because most of them believe that only the original autographs are inspired and yet they can still discuss Bible doctrines and be dogmatic on many issues pertaining to the Christian faith.
It is therefore, questionable as to on what basis do these Christians form their convictions on Biblical issues. Since they believe that a translation cannot be inspired, how can they be sure what they believe are indeed Bible truths as they do not have a physical inspired Holy Bible to begin with? They claim that believing that a translation is also the inspired word of God would be tantamount to imputing double inspiration to the version concerned which is a heresy of the highest order.
But is such a claim justifiable and supportable by Scriptures? Who is the author of languages? Is Almighty God bound by the original Biblical languages when revealing Bible truths to His people? If the perfect inspired Holy Bible is only found in the original Bible languages, should not all Christians learn these original Bible languages to know the perfect meanings of His words and to live according to God’s perfect will?
Should not all Christians discuss Bible truths in these original languages since Biblical truths can be lost during the process of translation? They claim that only the originals in the original languages from which they were written are pure and that a translation can never attain to the same status of these originals. Why then only a select class of Christians is given the privilege to learn these languages and become master and custodian of Bible truths? So when these highly privilege Christians discuss and share Bible truths to those who are less privilege, can they ensure that what they disseminate are indeed perfect and true since exact meanings are lost during the process of translation as they so claim?
So if God did not preserve for us His pure, living, inspired and holy words, there is no basis for us to discuss Bible truths and doctrines. Then we will not be able to obey Ephesians 4:14; That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
But we know for sure this is not the case as God has promised in Proverbs 22:20 & 21, Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge, That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?
Yes, indeed God has not only written to us excellent things in counsel and knowledge, He has also promised to preserve them for us!
The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth,
purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever. (Psalm 12:6 & 7)
