    KJO: Satan perverts the Word of God using modern translations. They are all corrupt!

    KJO: Why is everyone attacking me? Visit my website www.everythingbutwhatIbeleiveiswrong.com.

    KJO: I know someone with a modern translation and the TONE is really different. Modern translations try to kill the KJV, however they still fail! The KJV is still alive!

    KJO: The KJV and modern translations differ in 10,000 places, almost every other word is different. Different is not the same, it's different. Who's ready to take a quiz?, if you can't answer these next questions exactly as I want with your modern translation than I'm right. Little space is provided for your answers, and no questions but it's much more than needed. If you followed the instructions above, you not only failed the test, you receive a big goose egg. If you would like to improve your score, and in fact score 100%, you can take this test using the Authorized (King James) Bible.

    KJO: You say the MVs do not pervert doctrine in the Bible (which is a lie,they do pervert doctrine) as fact;can we not deduce the same about your statements? just because you keep repeating it,does that make it true? NO!!!

    KJO: I know you are but what am I. The NIV is a prime example of heresy. It denies Christ's deity. You know, trying to intimidate and doing the name-calling bit when someone tells you something you CANNOT disprove is pretty infantile IMO. I really feel sorry for you.

    KJO: I have a book called "Defending the King James Bible," by Paster D. A. Waite. I have a website where I say, In fact, the NIV is the diehard homosexual's best friend because unlike the KJV1611, it does not specifically condemn homosexuality. The KJV is the only inerrant Bible:

    Superior TEXTS
    Superior TRANSLATORS
    Superior TECHNIQUE
    Superior THEOLOGY

    Superior, Superior, Superior.

    Zondervan publishes the NIV bible, Zondervan starts with the letter Z, and the letter Z sounds evil. So there. How much more proof do you want?

    KJO: 18 Manuscripts deleted, 4000 words added, 10 paragraphs sqeezed in, can I buy a vowel, 2000 sentences moved and you can go to www.Ihavecomparedthe KJVtoaMVwordforwordfornoreasonandherearethedifferences.com

    KJO: I'm not saying anything else in this thread. I can get pretty riled up when people talk about my precious KJB, and I hate losing my temper! Quit attacking me and my views. I know I'm right, because that's what I believe.

    All of the above information I just made up.

    As a new believer I could never imagine just coming into this website forum and reading these kind of things.

    Many of you guys have caused me to really think about, what is it that I believe about different bible translations. I have since then bought many books about bible translations, read all of your postings, and spent hours studying different bibles. The right answer about all of this seems so easy and clear to me, for me. It really tugs on my heart and baffles me when reading the KJV only point of view on these boards. To read the venom spewing from these people and to try and coordinate it with the wonderfulness that I have found in my own new bible, I don't know. I just don't know. It just seems wrong.

    What little I know about Jesus, and it is very little at this time, I just don't think he would get so bent out of shape about KJV only. I can really imagine him saying to me, I don't care how you get to me, just get here soon, because I am the truth and the way and the light. And you know what, that's good enough for me.

    PS. I picked the ESV. New Translation. Benefit of newly found documents. Literal Translation. Easy to read. The Language reads dignified sounding. And Jesus is in there too!

    2Timothy 2
    24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, 25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;

    if i ran this board, this scripture would be at the top of every page. i need to better heed it myself.

    I must admit, I just about spit out my drink becasue I was laughing so hard at:

    "Zondervan publishes the NIV bible, Zondervan starts with the letter Z, and the letter Z sounds evil. So there. How much more proof do you want?"

    By the way, the ESV is a good translation. Hope you enjoy reading and studying it.
