Jack McElroy was raised as a Roman Catholic attending a Catholic grammar and Jesuit high school. His life changed in 1978 when he became a Born Again Christian after a 2 year search for the answer to the question: "What happens to you after you die?"
He's a 64-year-old businessman and entrepreneur.
He has been the President of McElroy Electronics Corporation for over 35 years.
He co-founded and was President of Dutchess County Cellular Telephone Corporation in Poughkeepsie, NY and co-founded and was Chief Manager of Minneapolis Cellular Telephone Company LLC in Minneapolis MN. McElroy co-founded and is President of McElroy Publishing and McElroy Rare Bible Page Collections since 1991.
He has taught Bible doctrine to all age groups, from preschoolers to adults. He served as a youth leader for over 20 years and as a deacon at a Baptist church for over 12 years.
Over nearly 30 years he's studied the history of the Bible, textual criticism and translation theory. He's read books and articles by KJVonly and anti-KJV-only folks; Textus Receptus (TR) defenders; as well as Majority Text, Critical Text, and modern version supporters.
He's invested countless hours examining, comparing, and considering the differences between the 1611 King James Bible, and its subsequent reprints and modern versions.
He's familiar with the arguments on all sides of the issue—from KJV only to TR only to Majority Text Preferred to Critical Text Preferred—as well as the strengths and weaknesses of each position.
And he believes that if the Lord Jesus Christ came to your church to speak he would have to choose from among all the different Bible versions out there and he'd be forced to pick just one of them.
The evidence shows that that the differences between the King James Bible and any of the modern versions are so great that if the Lord Jesus Christ came to your church tonight, he would absolutely not use any of the modern versions and he would without any question use a King James Bible.
He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Management from Lowell Technological Institute (now UMass Lowell).
He is co-author of Adoniram Judson's Soul Winning Secrets Revealed: An Inspiring Look at the Tools Used by "Jesus Christ's Man" in Burma.
