    In all my studying of KJV-onlyism, I havent heard that the translators died to get the KJV out in print..

    is this true?

    not physically true.
    It is spiritually true.
    KJV is based largely (word for word like 37%) on
    the Wycliffe translation. Wycliffe was
    killed because of his English Translation.

    Peace of Christ to you Emily.

    Here is a good website that you might want to check out.

    Falsehood propagated by King James Onlyism

    This site is by other Baptist preachers who believe that KJVO is a manmade doctrine

    Thank you very much Living and Ed

    I am not sold at all on the KJVonly myth, but today, while talking with a very very sweet lady, she told me that the KJV is obviously one of God's landmarks. Everyone who was involved with it was martyred and for 250 years it was left alone and we shouldnt mess with GOd's landmarks..


    Well, I have heard a lot of arguments, but I never heard of the translators being martyerd. I would have thought that I woudl have heard that a lot. I lurk a lot on the version debate board, but I cant post because Im not a memeber of a baptist church yet.

    I haven't either, but I suppose its possible that some of them were. The 1600's were turbulent years in Britian; Protestants, Puritans, Non-Comformists all were persecuted, imprisoned, removed and some martyred. But while what she is claiming may help to "rally the troops" for her cause, it does nothing to prove her claim.

    The argument would be just as silly to claim that the Book of Mormon is inspired because some early Mormons got persecuted.

    "The 1600's were turbulent years in Britian; Protestants, Puritans, &lt;Roman Catholics, baptists&gt;, Non-Comformists all were persecuted, imprisoned, removed and some martyred."
    And all by the Anglican church, all the KJB translators belonged to that Anglican church.

    I know what KJB stands for, but does AV mean "Anglican Version?" [​IMG] :eek: ;) :D

    AV=Authorized (by King James) version.

    The history of Bible translation is facinating. There are a couple recent popular books that go into the history of the KJV. It can inspire believers today to know the trials and persecution that the translators of the Bible had to suffer.

    One book in my library is "In the Begining, the story of the KJV Bible and how it changed a nation, a language and a culture. by Alister McGrath, Doubleday, 2001.
