In this message, Dr. Deems shows that God required the Scriptures be translated into the languages of the people. Translation of the scriptures into multiple languages was typical of first century Christianity, and was one of the characteristics of the Reformation as well. The Roman Catholic church forbid the Bible to be translated into the vulgar (common) language of the people for close to a thousand years. This time is known as the "Dark Ages." Dr. Deems shows, from the Bible, that it is not the language that is the authority for the Scriptures but the Author. For example, King Ahasuerus wrote a decree in 127 different languages, the inscription on Christ's cross was written in three languages, and in Acts 2, the apostles were understood in many languages. In each case, It was not the language that gave the authority, but the "author." Dr. Deems makes the case that it is the Devil who does not want people to have a Bible in their own language. Today, many advocates for the King James Bible (AV 1611) have mistakenly taken the Dark Age Roman Catholic position (e.i. the spirit of the anti-Christ) that only one language (in their case English) can have authority and therefore is superior to the other translations.
