Sturz opines on ‘Lower Critical Naivete’

Westcott and Hort’s insistence that the text of the New Testament was not altered in any material respect from doctrinal motives was made in the face of the fact that this was one of the primary reasons given by the early Fathers for changes in the text. – Harry A. Sturz, The Byzantine Text-Type and New Testament Textual Criticism, 120 n.11.

  1. Amen! Unfortunately, what the KJV-only nuts have done is so contaminate this area that a rational voice can’t be heard without being painted with the same brush.

    The majority NT text is the true text, and anyone who looks at the differences between texts and concludes they don’t have any doctrinal bias to them is crazy.
