Touch Not the Unclean Thing is a strong defense of the traditional Received Text of the New Testament and by extension, the King James Version of the Bible. The author provides extensive historical and factual documentation for his assertions, with more than 450 citations and a bibliography of 150 historical sources. Dr. Sorenson connects the biblical principle of separation from apostasy to the Bible text issue, historically documenting the fact that almost all editors of the modern Critical Text have direct associations with theological liberalism or apostasy. In fact, there is documented proof that the two principal architects thereof were both involved with occult activities throughout the time they were producing their version of the Critical Text.
Dr. Sorenson also clearly exposes how the person of Christ has been diminished and major doctrines diluted in modern translations of the Bible based upon the Critical Text. Specifically, he documents the diminution of the person of Jesus Christ in the NIV and NASB.
Touch Not the Unclean Thing documents the following:
*The three major textual positions
*The basic error of Peter Ruckman's position
*The rationalism and apostasy associated with the Critical Text
*The theological liberalism of Westcott and Hort
*The involvement of Westcott and Hort in the occult
*The dilution of major doctrines in the NIV and NASB
*The diminution of the person of Jesus Christ in the NIV and NASB
*The influence of Erasmus on the Anabaptists
