MOSES STUART - Charlatans Misquote

North American Review (1826)
https://books.google.com/books?id=daNKAAAAcAAJ&pg=PA310

For out of some eight hundred thousand various readings, about seven hundred and ninetynine thousand are of just about as much importance to the sense of the Hebrew Scriptures, as the question in English orthography is, whether the word honour shall be spelled with u or without it. Of the remainder, some change the sense of particular passages or expressions; or omit particular words and phrases; or insert them ; but not one doctrine of religion is changed ; not one precept is taken away ; not one important fact is altered, by the whole of the various readings collectively taken.
The way that Moses Stuart is looking at the scriptures is dumb, but at least it is comprehensible, and would be completely irrelevant once we accept the authority of the Masoretic Text.

Watch the charlatans simply change his quote and context trying to use this as an allowance for their desire for New Testament corruption!

Tischendorf lied and quoted it as "Greek and Hebrew Scriptures", Stuart was not even talking about the NT.

"Out of some eight hundred thousand various readings of the Bible that have been collated, about seven hundred and ninety-five thousand are of just about as much importance to the sense of the Greek and Hebrew Scriptures, as the question in English orthography is, whether the word honour shall be spelled with a u or without it. Of the remainder, some change the sense of particular passages or expressions, or omit particular words or phrases, but no one doctrine of religion is changed, not one precept is taken away, not one important fact is altered by the whole of the various readings collectively taken."
