I recently read a post somewhere on this board that brought up the idea that most KJVo Pastors/Preachers correct the KJV translation on the fly while preaching without even realizing it. I was thinking that it would be interesting just to see how much truth is actually in that statement. I decided to keep track during this past Sunday's morning and evening service. I'll place my remarks below, however I would like to see if any body else would like to try this so that we can compile our results. To give a little background on my church: I love the assembly that God has called me to be a member of. I attend a church that is pretty much KJVO. My Results... The topic was stewardship Proof texts used were I Cor 10:26, II Cor 5:1 - 5:5, Eph 5:16, James 4:13, and Matthew 25:26-27 The Bible I used was an NASB/NIV Parallel. In I Cor 10:26 KJV reads "the fulness thereof" Pastor said "this means 'all it contains'" NASB reads "ALL IT CONTAINS" In II Cor 5:1 KJV reads "tabernacle" Pastor said "this simply means tent" NASB reads "tent" In II Cor 5:4 KJV reads "tabernacle" Pastor said "or tent" NASB reads "tent" In II Cor 5:5 KJV reads "wrought" Pastor said "this means He prepared" NASB reads "prepared" In Eph 5:16 KJV reads "Redeeming" Pastor said "this says that we need to make the most of" NASB reads "making the most of" James 4:13 KJV reads "Go to now" Pastor said "this is like saying today Come on now" NASB reads "Come now" Matthew 25:26 KJV reads "slothful" Pastor said "Its saying that this slave was lazy" NASB reads "lazy" Matthew 25:27 KJV reads "exchangers...usury" Pastor said "it says he should have put it in the bank so that he could at least get interest" NASB reads "bank...interest" Finally I Cor 6:20 KJV reads "therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are Gods: NASB reads " therefore glorify God in your body (rest is ommitted without a footnote???) In all 10 verses with 9 corrections and 1 partial omission. I'm also attending for the fourth year straight a distance education laymens Bible institute called Faith Bible Institute out of Rowland Road Baptist Church in Louisianna. I tried to use the same method I used on Sunday, but the speed of the class is such that its all you can do just to keep up with the notes. However a few I found In Ruth 2:3 KJV reads "hap" Prof said "means she happened" NASB reads "she happened" OH this one is good Ruth 3:9 KJV reads: "spread thy skirt over thine handmaid" Prof wrote:"The phrase 'spread thy skirt over thine handmaid' is a request for Boaz to assume her care. The Hebrew word translated skirt is literally edge or wing of thy garment, reminding him of his earlier words praising her for trusting God and coming under his wings" NASB reads: "spread your covering over your maid" NIV reads: "spread the corner of your garment over me" That stinks ... I thought I had actually found a proof text allowing me to try on my wife's dresses. jussssssst kiddddinnnnnggg In Gal 2:17 KJV reads "minister of sin" Prof said "Paul's answer was that this would make Christ a promoter of sin" NASB reads "promotes sin" In Gal 2:21 KJV reads "frustrate" Prof said multiple synonyms including "set aside" NIV reads "set aside" In Gal 2:21 KJV reads "Christ is dead in vain" Prof said "then Christ died for nothing" NIV reads "Christ died for nothing" In Gal 3:7-9 KJV reads "heathen" Prof said "He was told by God that the Gentiles would also be saved by faith" NIV reads "Gentiles" LAST ONE In Gal 3:26 KJV reads "children" Prof said " We are now the 'children' literally adult sons of God by faith in Christ NASB reads "sons"
