Losing the Songs of Zion

Scripture Passage: 
Jeremiah 23:26
Attached audio files: 

Introduction: We often reveal how man is perverting the words of God in the new versions of the Bible. But these words are the foundation for many other things as well. Ignorance of the King James Bible slowly removes our biblical vocabulary and biblical thinking. One of the methods Satan does this is by removing the old hymns from our vocabulary. They are dying because the new versions do not lend them support. The old songs cannot be restored without the old Bible. What follows is several examples of this destruction of the hymns by the perversion of the word of God.

The page numbers referenced beside the songs refer to the Soul Stirring Songs & Hymns Church Hymnal.
