    KJVOs love to pull the "The KJV is under attack on BB."

    This will tell us if this is true or not.

    I am most certainly NOT KJVO. I also don't think that Paul preached at the First Baptist Church of Antioch, Syria.

    Having said all that, I still read the KJV; when I do supply preaching, I use the KJV, and most of the verses I've memorized are KJV. My wide margin is KJV, my Scofield large print and Thompson Chain large print are KJV, and KJV is one of four translations I always have "Up" in my Quickverse@ program.

    I find the question very tricky! The possibilities to answer is limited to one answer.

    Of course, I do not believe that there will be any one on BB that will hate the KJB and want to get rid off.

    Because in MHO if you can love just any translation/version and to you all of them are the word of God, then certanly the KJB is also the word of God.

    They do not want to get rid of the KJB, they just can't stand it that that are people who realy believe that God fulfilled his promise to preserve His word. And they can't stand that some people have the conviction that the KJB is the perfect preserved Word of God.

    So to me, this pull is set up in a way that the outcome will seemingly give the result that the KJB is not under attack.

    That is not true. I believe it just as much as you.

    No, I don't have a problem with this. I may disagree with you. But what I can't stand is being called a heretic and a corrupter of God's Word. I love it just as much as you. I can't stand it when people try to force others to use the KJV and look down on them because they don't.

    News Flash: The KJV is NOT under attack. If you look, most of the 'attacking' is done by KJVOs on MVs and MV users.

    I can't speak for everyone, but this is not true in my case. Nobody thus far has been able to give a Scriptural support for KJV-Onlyism. There have been several threads devoted to it.

    If you were consistent, you would sincerely hope someone will vote "true." Because if no one does, the KJV-only claim that the Word of God is under attack is proven to be a fake.

    The question is a joke! No one would DARE admit it anyway.To quote Gen. George S. Patton. "Cowardice is epidemic."
    Believe it? To beleive the KJB and it being perfect,infallible,inerrant comes with a price! Ridicule and Ostracization.Most are not willing to pay that price.

    Most of us are unwilling to "Pay that price" for something that is not true. The early believers staked their lives on truth, not some fanciful ideas that were not taught by Scripture. We will pay the price for truth. "Ridicule and ostracization" (whatever that is) is not persecution for the faith. Let's not confuse those who gave their lives for their belief with those who are KJVOnly without biblical support. That is a disgrace to those who have suffered for their faith.

    I love it--arguments and attacks over whether or not there are attacks and arguments against the venerable KJV!

    Beam me up, Gabriel!

    Interesting. One one hand, KJVOs claim that BB members who are not KJVO hate, oppose, and want rid of the KJV (That question phrasing came from KJVO accusations, by the way), but now the claim is that the people who are unanimously saying they don't hate or oppose or want rid of the KJV somehow want to glom onto its coat-tails.

    Y'all can't have it both ways. You now have no basis for saying people hate, oppose, and want rid of the KJV, and this new bromide about wanting to be associated with it isn't holding water either.

    They do not want to get rid of the KJB, they just can't stand it that that are people who realy believe that God fulfilled his promise to preserve His word.
    Non-KJVO's don't believe that that it is a requirement for all people to believe the preservation promise is fulfilled via a specific translation, be it English or other. Given that the so-called preservation verse was originally written in Hebrew, the support for this belief by non-KJVO's is biblically supportable.

    I use and believe the KJV.
    It is completely suited for its purpose. The KJV lacks nothing essential nor includes anything destructive to an accurate representation of God's written Word.
    Rightly handled, the KJV communicates all of the doctrines delivered to the saints. It does not fail in this purpose.
    It derives inerrancy from the originals in as much as it agrees with them in message. It is not nor ever can be perfectly (divinely) worded or a exact facsimile of the words that God actually gave through the prophets, holy men of old, and Apostles.
    The price for believing KJVOnlyism is.... the truth. It costs you the truth to believe a man made false doctrine.
    Thankfully, you are right. Most are not willing to swallow KJVOnlyism's wholesale perversion of the doctrines of inspiration, inerrancy, and infallibility.
