In the ongoing war between fundamentalist Christians about the meaning of the gospel James White’s Alpha & Omega ministry drops quite a bombshell. Here is the post:
The often quoted saying of Jesus from the cross “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing” is described, rightly, as a ‘Dubious Textual Variant’. The article says this problem will have ‘theological implications’ for pastors and other Christians. It certainly will! All the Bibles we have include this dubious verse. Also, the article questions God’s unconditional forgiveness.
What else is dodgy and doubtful too? What other suspect textual variants exist that pastors use in preaching but somehow fail to tell their congregations? Hopefully we can look forward to further disconcerting revelations from the ministry of James White. (Cue the wrath of Sam Shamoun).
