    I think I've seen enough.

    After my initial post one of your "heavy hitters' "warmly" greeted me with the thought that I should have read over the posts before I posted and then I would have had something more worthwhile to discuss. Well I did read them over before I posted, and the post on "Modern Bible Study" was what I felt summed up this forum on "Versions and Translations" and modern "Christianity's" view on authority.

    I purposefully planned on not responding to your responses of my posts after seeing the attitude displayed on this forum before I posted. I just let some of you folks have your way and "do your thing". Saw no need to defend my posts based upon what I saw.

    My final thoughts?

    1. The confusion over authority amongst Baptists is applalling.

    2. The constant mocking, one-liners, etc. is unbecoming of the gospel of Christ and no different from other forums and maybe even worse than some.

    I've met some nice folks. Not my place to offer advice - but I would advice those of you who are defending the King James Bible to leave - there is nothing you can do here.

    Leave these folks to themselves for this would make them happy and it would provide you with an oppotunity to make somebody happy in these last days.

    God bless

    Sorry to see you go, you were more refreshing that most KJVOs. [​IMG]

    You said "1. The confusion over authority amongst Baptists is applalling."

    I agree. Baptists should have the Bible as their authority. I am still trying to determine by what authority we should believe the doctrine of KJV-onlyism, since it's not in the Bible.

    You said "2. The constant mocking, one-liners, etc. is unbecoming of the gospel of Christ and no different from other forums and maybe even worse than some."

    I agree. This is an area we could all improve on.

    That's what the Romanists say. They, like the KJV-onlyists, want us all to submit to their final authority.

    2. The constant mocking, one-liners, etc. is unbecoming of the gospel of Christ and no different from other forums and maybe even worse than some.

    And it would be cut by nearly 100% if only the KJV-onlyists would abandon the snide put-downs and name-calling: "per-versions," "Alexandrian Cult," "Scholarship Onlyism," and the rest.

    False doctrines based upon lies, willful deception, willful ignorance, and spiritual darkness do not belong on a Christian message board, nor do those who teach, advocate, or defend such false doctrines. Jesus did not use tactful words and phrases when exposing the false doctrines of the Pharisees, and neither should the Christians on this message board when exposing KJOism for what it is.

    Good bye AVBunyan.

    You were here less than a month. I've been here over 3 years. There was a time when the KJVO came in herds , hit-and-run insults, accusations and innuendo, verbal drive-by-shootings, for example "YOU ARE ALL GOING TO HELL" along with some other accusations never to return. Others posted page after page of HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Others went postal, screaming/shouting on for several pages. Some of us received VERY unchristian email, etc, etc.

    The BB administrators just got tired of it and tightened up the posting requirements, in short you have to behave like a normal human being, not like a paranoid schizophrenic to continue posting here.

    Posters are not allowed the perogative of God alone: judging people's spirituality and/or salvation.

    In addition we (the grunts) meet every challenge to our faith answering each, measuring them with their own yardstick.

    We were forced into an eye-for-an-eye confrontation because graciousness doesn't work with some KJVO.

    Oh, come on, AVBunyan, don't go, please ? Be a sport.

    Seriously, HanKD is right. The KJVO's of previous times were meaner than you can imagine.

    They can't chase you if you don't run is what I tell the kids at church.

    Stay and post in other areas where you can share your thoughts, devotionals, make friends, explore your Christian walk....

    AVBunyan, who came on the board with an oxymoron, is leaving us. That is sad, really. He was a relatively gentle KJVO.

    Baptists have always questioned authority, but not the Bible. The differences between the MVs and the KJVs, in doctrinal matters, don't amount to a hill of beans.

    Actually, from what I've seen, this is quite tame. The members who regularly post here do not like to be called "perversionists" and deceived by the devil, and it would not be unreasonable to expect them to challenge folks who make such statements.

    Sorry to see ya go, Sir, but if your aim was to get anyone to fall for the false KJVO doctrine, your mission was a total failure. You see, some of us have actually done the homework and found out from FACT that indeed the KJVO doctrine is a bad penny, with all its ideas collectively forming a myth. If you wish to be KJVO-preferred, fine, there are many such people around. But, when you play, "MY Bible can whup YOUR Bible", you're gonna lose every time.

    I'm not any kind of "official" on this board, and have neither the time nor the desire to be, but, far as I'm concerned, you're welcome back any time.

    "Good Bye" is short for "God be with ye".

    Hey I just prepared a nice certificate of appreciation for our Sunday School teachers and I put a bible verse quote on it and guess what - I used the King James Version. However, I normally read from the New American Standard.

    When I took Greek classes the teacher actually encouraged us to make our own translations of scripture! I couldn't pass the class without doing that!

    Anyway, be assured the KJV will have a worthy place among English speakers for a few more generations at least. It just won't ever be the only one any more.

    There really isn't that muhc confusion. It is the KJVO crowd telling peopel that they can't trust God's word that causes the confusion.

    Learning the truth would be a good start if people are looking for something to do. You must remember that our issue is not with people who use the KJV. It is with people who insist that there is an authority over the Bible. Those who insist that the KJV is the only word of God have another authority because the KJV never teaches that position. The word of God is the authority, and since the word of God never says the KJV is the only word of God, we should not say it either.

    "These are the times that try men's souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict the more glorious the triumph." Thomas Paine, December, 1776

    Excellent post, Granny. We should be free from the tyranny of the KJVOs.

    Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable -- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy -- think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me -- put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

    And we hope that those on the KJVO side will leave the ranks of the summer soldier and join the battle for truth. It is always easier to voluntarily convert to the truth rather than reject it.

    But I sincerely doubt that Paine was referencing any such idea as this forum discusses. IT would be better for the KJVOs to show where the KJV authorizes their view. Show us where God said it. Then we will believe. Until then, we refuse to reject the authority of God to buy the position of man.
