As Lamar Mauldin studied the phenomenon of modern Bible versions, it became apparent that a conspiracy of sorts was behind them. Not that all the translators were necessarily evil, but the overall desire of some to undermine the King James Version is of itself diabolical. This book has been written to alert the Christian world to this conspiracy.
Quoting from several sources regarding the integrity of some of the translators from bygone years, the author attempts to show that they, although likely sincere, were less than accurate in their translation of the Hebrew and Greek manuscripts into English. Use of extensive passages from the writings of Ellen G. White further shows the validity of the King James Version of the Bible.
The grand language of the King James Version has stood the test of time, and it finds no equal in the modern translations. Because the Bible is the means through which God has chosen to communicate with fallen humanity, the way in which we read and understand it is vital.
It is not the words of the Bible that are inspired, but the men that were inspired. Inspiration acts not on the man’s words or his expressions but on the man himself, who, under the influence of the Holy Ghost, is imbued with thoughts. But the words receive the impress of the individual mind. The divine mind is diffused. The divine mind and will is combined with the human mind and will; thus the utterances of the man are the word of God. (White, Selected Messages, Vol. 1, p. 19–21)
