Evangelical Textual Scholar Debunks Chris Pinto’s Conspiracy Claim that Codex Sinaiticus was a “Forgery”

Daniel Wallace, who is one of the foremost Evangelical textual scholars today defending the trustworthiness of the Bible, for example, debating such liberals as Bart Erhman, makes some excellent points refuting the sensational and baseless claim that Codex Sinaiticus is a forgery.

Chris Pinto of Noise of Thunder Radio is peddling his egregiously biased documentary promoting his wacky conspiracy theory that Codex Sinaiticus was a 19th century forgery. Pinto has an agenda: He believes there is a “Jesuit conspiracy” to corrupt the Bible with modern Bible translations using the critical textual tradition. Yes, this is the same claim you find from the nutty extreme King James Only crowd.

Pinto is oddly promoted by Brannon Howse of Worldview Weekend. 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).

Perhaps Pinto thinks Wallace is a closet Jesuit!
