James White Comments on Chris Pinto’s Conspiracy Theory on Codex Sinaiticus Being a Forgery

At 27:51, James White, author of The King James Only Controversy on his Dividing Line show comments on Pinto’s conspiracy:

White comments, here is an excerpt:

There is so much stupidity on the Net that what are you suppose to say? That kind of accusation, especially in light of all the other manuscripts that are clearly related to the text type of Sinaiticus that have a completely different provenance than Sinaiticus does. It is so absurd that it is sort of like I need to respond to the people who say we did not land on the moon.

White responds a second time to Pinto in the same show at 44:45 as it relates to conspiracy theories with Islam and the Jesuits.

Pinto has zero training in the New Testament textual tradition and is not able to even read the very manuscript he claims is a forgery. I do not believe that Pinto would know even how do respond to White’s point: “in light of all the other manuscripts that are clearly related to the text type of Sinaiticus that have a completely different provenance than Sinaiticus.” The answer would require a competent knowledge of the textual history of the New Testament, which Pinto does not possess.

Dan Brown of The Da Vinci Code would be proud of him.

One wonders if Brannon Howse is even aware of the fact that Pinto is undermining the trustworthiness in the Bible versions that the vast majority of Howse’s followers use (e.g. NIV, ESV, NASB, NET, etc).
