It is an interesting fact of history that as the Reformation progressed, the Reformers adopted the Received Text in union with the Waldenses; the Jesuit-inspired counter Reformation adopted the Latin Vulgate and the Vaticanus. What do we see today? Most of the modern versions are based upon the text of the counter-Reformation. In addition, we see increased negativity toward the Textus Receptus and the King James Version. This has not been without adverse effects upon all of Protestantism and Adventism, specifically. Assault on the Remnant provides insights into the causes and effects that the doctrinal pluralism of the common text Bibles of the counter-Reformation have had on Adventist doctrine.
Ted Schultz is a third generation Seventh-day Adventist who has been privileged with an Adventist education and a love for the study of Bible prophecy. At an early age he took a special interest in the Spirit of Prophecy. While many around him were casting aspersions upon those writings and its author, Ted began reading with deep interest those inspired writings, beginning with The Great Controversy. The attacks of yester-year on the Spirit of Prophecy appear quite crude and inept as compared to the current assaults being experienced. The author believes that the assaults now coming against the church and the body of doctrine God gave it are coming, to a large extent, from within the church. Those who maintain their faith in the Spirit of Prophecy and humbly allow themselves to be instructed and guided by those inspired writings will be kept safe from Satan’s many snares and delusions.
