    1. The point was to demonstrate the fallacy of certain methods of argumentation by showing that they cut both ways.

    2. It is a straw man argument to a certain extent. I bring it up only to demonstrate the inconsistency and foolishness of the arguments that many are posting.

    3. To Hank, no I didn't really plan it that way. It simply happened. I was going to make one post and maybe one follow up. It got dragged out because some could not see the obvious point of it.

    Unfortunately, what you demonstrated was that some people simply wouldn't get the point if they were impaled on it.

    I have done the same sort of thing (with different KJV-only arguments) and I have gotten the exact same results: righteous indignance that I would even make such accusations. It apparently never occurs to the die-hard KJV-onlyists that they are causing exactly the same offense in their baseless attacks against the modern versions. It's like trying to argue with a brick wall.

    Psalms 119:165

    Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

    What I still fail to understand is why the MVists are so concerned with those who stick with the KJV? By and large the mv crowd state that the Word is accurately rendered in many translations. So why do they get so offended when one says ok then lets pick the KJ? The least tolerant seem to be on the mv side (though I may be a little biased). When in chooseing the more modern and liberal views they should by extention be more tolerant of the KJV folks. Oh well there are many more things that should be focused on. I'm going to go and do that now.

    We're not.

    We're concerned with those who stick with the KJV and declare all other Bibles to be perversions, Satanic, rubbish, toilet paper, etc. etc. etc. and everyone who worked on them liberal, apostate, occultist, homosexual, etc. etc. etc., and everyone who uses and appreciates them apostates, Romanist-lovers, deluded, Alexandrian Cultists, etc. etc. etc., and employ all manner of intellectual dishonesty (as well as the plain kind of dishonesty) to make that point.

    Kindly keep the two categories straight.

    "Offend" means "cause to commit an offense," i.e. sin. It has nothing to do with taking offense at scurrilous, slanderous accusations of KJV-onlyists.

    Yes, I hope it was taken to heart by those KJV-onlyists who show their hate for God's law by bearing false witness against modern Bibles and those who love them.

    This is a little like asking the school nerd what he did to make the bully steal his lunch money and beat him up! :D

    I know of no MV user who has a problem with anyone who chooses to usethe KJV. The whole problem arose when a vocal few claimed that the KJV was and is the ONLY WORD OF GOD IN ENGLISH and all else are Per-versions.

    The debate from the MV side is one of protecting self and others from errant doctrine.
