The Reformed v. Fundamentalist Approaches to the AV

Rev. Matthew Winzer:

Steve, as I perceive it, within fundamentalist circles the defence of the AV assumes anti-reformed principles such as their doctrine that the translators were inspired and that the AV can be used to correct the Hebrew and Greek originals. The “baptist” view of regenerate church membership influences the way differences are discussed, especially using terms like “apostate” and “new age” to describe anything which might produce variation from the AV. The Reformed clearly hold to the authenticity of the originals while maintaining the integrity of faithful translations, and make careful distinctions between inspiration and providence, the visible and invisible church, etc.
