I call upon You, Lord, God of Abraham and God of Isaac and God of Jacob and Israel, You who are the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the God who, through the abundance of your mercy, was well-pleased towards us so that we may know You, who made heaven and earth, who rules over all, You who are the one and the true God, above whom there is no other God; You who, by our Lord Jesus Christ gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit, give to every one who reads this writing to know You, that You alone are God, to be strengthened in You, and to avoid every heretical and godless and impious teaching.

St Irenaeus of Lyons, Against the Heresies 3:6:4

Doug Wilson on the KJV in the Pulpit

Doug Wilson has an interesting defense of his use of the King James Version in the pulpit (it is sad to think that one would need a defense or explanation of this!).  If nothing else, it demonstrates some creative reflection, quite typical of Doug, that escapes the morass of careless reasoning indicative of the KJVOnly camp.  Although the three reasons Doug presents in this video do not create an airtight argument for the KJV, something that I don't believe he is attempting to do, each point resonates with me, and only further affirms my love and respect for this wonderful gift to Christ's Church to the four corners of the earth.
