    . . .such persons, as those KJVO always being railed on and cursed here on this message board, and if there are such persons, do they post here? Or is the noisy attack merely a diversion for the purpose of casting doubts on what is often referred to here as an unreadable, dead and dying Bible?

    Yes or no?

    Posts made to change the topic will not be answered by me.

    Bro. Bob, there are some such persons here. There is evidence found in postings that follow the extreme position of Peter Ruckman, even in effect denying preservation because God had to re-inspire the King James Bible. The rhetoric on both sides is often an unfortunate distraction from real and open discussion of the issues of difference between the KJV and modern versions (particularly those that follow eclectic texts), important textual issues, or just friendly exchanges. It appears hard for any thread to not degenerate into a versions debate.

    For the record, I've never heard anyone cursed publicly, but yes, there are KJVOs of all ilks, particularly the extreme, who bait and seemingly want to do nothing but cause division. There are a small number of folks who are not KJVO who have passed through here who seemed to love dissension.

    Thank you rlvaughn, for your reply. What one considers as painting with a broad brush stroke, invective, or trouble making are terms used different ways depending on ones perception of a matter. People might have over sensitive trigger points, and blame for that trigger being activated could be cast on others, while the problem might have been avoided by self control on the part of the one with the sensitive trigger. Resultant sometimes used broad brush stroke along with accusation of invective, and trouble making seem to multiply. In my opinion, prejudice, in a sense, is not part of the trouble, for there is such a thing as ownership rights, but I see ways how the term prejudice could enter in a discussion of the problem. Charging a person with strife or sedition might be the result of works of the flesh, on the part of the accuser. Attitudes develop through covert actions and are carried into the open. Problematic is demand for allegiance to a position, any position, where there is no clear Scriptural mandate. What is referred to as political correctness is recognized by some as a problem of our day. Perhaps in a sense that has entered the minds causing problems. It should not be the expectation that all or even most will be consistently pleased with what is said, or that all will understand what is said. Political correctness flows to the lowest point.

    Once again the victims have somehow become the victimizers.
