Textus Receptus and the Doctrine of Preservation (Part 2)
Wallace argues the doctrine of Preservation is Marcionite because it cannot work with the history of the Old Testament text. The church did not preserve the Hebrew Old Testament; Jewish scholars did. And there are issues of a corrupted text in the Old Testament that could not be there according to the doctrine of Preservation. Wallace also argues that the doctrine is not taught in the Bible and therefore we should not believe it. He concludes that there is no biblical, exegetical, or empirical basis to argue for the doctrine of Preservation, although it is remarkable how well God did preserve Scripture.
