Let's start a NASB only thread. Oh, wait, nobody actually thinks the NASB is the pure, holy words of God.

How about an ESV only thread? No, that won't work either.

How about a NIV only thread? Nope.
Nobody is going to start a thread like that, because none of us do "translation worship".... None of us are so anal-retentive about having the "exact, pure words of God"... every jot/tittle/comma/letter like you are.

I don't believe the NASB is the ONLY translation of the Bible that is good. I believe there are several, including the KJV translation.

Not one time has anyone ever eluded to this false accusation. I exalt God's word and as a result, we exalt the Savior.
Oh...really....I have seen it by inference, actions, deeds and by default.....I have heard it....I have seen men in complete IGNORANCE say that Paul and JESUS preached from the KING JAMES, say that IF the KING JAMES was good enough for PAUL it was good enough for them....HAVE SEEN people on this site say that any other version is of the devil and that the KING JAMES is INSPIRED of GOD...blah, blah, blah......it is NOTHING more than a TRANSLATION/TRANSLITERATION made BY ANGLICANS and the very PREFACE states clearly that IT WAS COMPARED to the ENGLISH versions that came before it....

AND I USE a CAMBRIDGE BERKSHIRE LEATHER BLACK LETTER WIDE MARGIN KING JIMMY.....MY MAIN BIBLE...so please....do not accuse me of being ANTI-KING JIMMY.....but rather I have a PROPER PERSPECTIVE.........

Errr, correction. I am that anal retentive. Then again, that's why I've got to have my eSword, so I can check out several versions, and then what scholars say, and, oh, oh, let's not forget the concordances.

Which is also why I cannot go with just one version. To me that's more diarrhetic to go just-one-version. I'm trying to keep it in rather than...


Oops, could not keep that metaphor going without grossing even myself out.

My point exactly. You have nothing to rely upon as the word of God.

Nothing of what you said implies worship, just a firm belief in the KJV as the preserved words of God.

Your self-ilusion is not an evidence that others lack something.

You invented your own definition of reliability, which fails in the KJV as often as in other translations. You avoid that reality by using double standards.


Thats the KJV Onlyism in a nutshell:

1. Own definitions of what is needed
2. Your own definition is not applicable to the KJV
3. Which you solve by double standards (what is a proof of error in "modern" translations, does not matter in KJV).

No need to repeat it from the beginning.

You hold to an illusion regarding word usage. Only the context of your statement alludes to the correct term. It seems that for all your reading of KJV English, some realities have eluded your grasp.

Maybe read it again with glasses on this time......and yes indeed it does belie the worship of a version........and is the epitome of how ridiculous it is to push the king James the way many who have gone to seed on this issue do....

A KING JAMES VERSION SERMON:

- Hebrews 4:12
- Psalm 12:6-7

Notice the word "preserve", meaning God's word is already present in our times.

- Galatians 1:6-7 (of 1:1-12)

Notice "of Christ", meaning sadly there are trying Christians attracted by the overwhelming affection of Christ, only to be misled by a Gospel that is not "of Christ"

- 2 Corinthians 11:3-4

Scriptural changes differing in meaning broadly spread through the many so called, "modern English Bible Translations" published since the King James Version Bible (KJV) or its birth in 1611 as the Authorized Version (AV).

Here is our History:

The King James Version Bible: Translated from the Textus Receptus and finished in 1611; Through God's will a breakthrough for the Protestant Reformation, for Christian believers with beliefs protestant to the Roman Catholic Church.

The MOST respected Bible, standing out as a strong spiritual asset.
The one and only true word of God (in the English Language).
The Holy Bible.

- Proverbs 30:5-6

Pre 1611 (Old Testament):
Was known to be in the Hebrew Language.

Pre 1611 (New Testament):
Before year 1611, The New Testament was present on earth in the Greek language; in texts known as the Textus Receptus, Yet, not yet translated into the English Language.

Pre 1611 English Bible translations (To solve confusion):
These books were not known to be as spiritually profitable, but are very evident that the puritan reformer group in their day were not happy with Catholicism and the Roman Catholic Church, desperate and determined for liberty in faith.

Man, go back under your bridge and wait for those three goats.

I bet this is a KJVO’er on here whose made up another account to keep spreading their stupidity.
