Does James White Lie when he talks about The Bible Version Issue?
Neither one of these men, James White or Todd Friel, really believes that ANY Bible in any language is now or ever was the complete and inerrant words of God.
There is lots of misleading and sometimes totally false information in this video James White and Todd Friel put together.

James White is very misleading when he talks about the last 6 verses of Revelation. There are no "weird readings" in these verses. Not even the modern Critical Text versions of today agree among themselves in the last verse of this chapter. Read the article below to see this example.
The main disputed reading in all six verses is one word as found in Revelation 22:19 where we find the difference between “the book of life” versus “the tree of life”.

The modern Critical Text versions are not based on 5700 mss at all. The majority of all these 5700 manuscripts only confirm the readings found in the King James Bible, as opposed to the modern Critical Text versions. Versions like the ESV, NIV, NASB, NET, the modern Catholic versions and the Jehovah Witness New World Translation all share THE SAME Greek textual basis which is taken primarily from two manuscripts (Sinaiticus and Vaticanus) that constantly contradict, not only the Majority of all manuscripts, but each other as well, AND the ever changing Critical Greek text is under the direct supervision of the Vatican.
They come right out and tell you this in the Nestle-Aland 27th edition, which is the same textual basis for the ESV, NIV, NASB and the modern Catholic versions as well as the Jehovah Witness NWT.
Both James White and Todd Friel make reference to "the older and best manuscripts", yet most people are unaware of what they are referring to and how they actually read. If you wish to learn more about how messed up and contradictory they REALLY are, here are many examples for you to consider.
The true character of the so called "Oldest and Best Manuscripts"
James misrepresents the truth about 1 John 5:7 - the strongest verse in the Bible about the Trinity. He said this reading didn't appear in the Greek manuscripts till the 14th century. James is being very selective and misleading about the truth of this verse.
By the way, James White also says that Luke 23:34 is NOT inspired Scripture and doesn't belong in the Bible - "Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them for they know not what they do."
Do you agree with him on this?
James White also misrepresents the truth about the Geneva bible and the Pilgrims view of the King James Bible. He said the Pilgrims favored the Geneva Bible over the KJB because many of them objected to the words "baptize" and "church". Yet the Geneva bible has both "baptize" and "church" in it, just as often and in the same places as the KJB does!
We know for a fact that the Pilgrims on the Mayflower also brought with them the King James Bible and not just the Geneva bible.
Many of the Puritans themselves were on the King James Bible translation committee.
See my article on the Geneva Bible -
As for James White’s “Gotcha Question” about “Which King James Version is inerrant?”, this too is easy to answer.
See "Answering James White - Which KJV?"
James White is either misrepresenting or flat out lying about many things in this short video. In addition to this, he often SAYS he believes "the Bible IS the infallible words of God", yet he will NEVER show you a copy of it or tell you what it is or where you can get one for yourself. And neither will Todd Friel.
Word to the wise about James White from the book of Proverbs -
“Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.” Proverbs 14:7
ALL of grace, believing God’s Book in the English language - the King James Holy Bible.
