Stylos is the blog of Jeff Riddle, a Reformed Baptist Pastor in North Garden, Virginia. The title "Stylos" is the Greek word for pillar. In 1 Timothy 3:15 Paul urges his readers to consider "how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar (stylos) and ground of the truth."

On this day, October 6, 1536, William Tyndale was burned alive at the stake for the crime of translating the Bible into English. Tyndale was betrayed by Henry Phillips who was hired by John Stokesley, the Roman Catholic Bishop of London.
Tyndale, before being strangled and burned at the stake in Vilvoorde, cries out, "Lord, open the King of England's eyes."
And God did, by raising James VI and I as only absolute monarch in British history (Trew Law's divine right of kings), against the pagan absolute monarch in Europe sat in the Vatican. And God's anointed give us the Authorized Version aka the King James Bible.
Praise the Lord for His great mercy and glorious providence.
