    There is a scare tactic used by some members of
    a party i'll not name. They say that ALL Modern Versions (MVs)
    are translated from evil Alexandrian manuscripts.

    BTW, I define 'MV' to mean any version created
    since 1699. The KJV1769 Translation/version/edition
    was created after 1700 so meets my definition of
    being an MV. Which means that the KJV many (from 2% to 60%)
    KJVOs use, the KJV1769 Edition, is also translated from
    Alexandrian manuscripts.

    But anyway, most who concern them with the errors
    of the Alexandianists don't define the MV like I do.
    Tell the truth now, are you a dreded practionier
    of the evil Alexandrianism?

    Your answer will be recored for all to see.

    In General, being an Alexandrianist is a demonization of
    certain LIBERAL CHRISTIANS who believe they can
    get saved by Bibles other than the KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB).
    (well the KJB is called the KJV /King James Version/ by nearly
    everybody including the translators of the LKV,
    the publishers of the KJV and most users of the KJV)

    The existance of Alexandrianism is a myth created by
    certain people who have no scriptureal basis for their
    doctrine of one-and-only-one-Bible-ism :(

    Hey, where's the Alexandrianist HQ, Ed? Alexandria, Virginia? Louisiana? Indiana? Kentucky? South Dakota? Missouri? Nebraska? New York? Ohio? Jamaica? Rumania? Australia? Scotland? Italy? Sicily? Any of the several in Russia? South Africa? Oh, yeah, there's one in NORTH Africa, some place called Egypt, whom God calls "My people" in Isaiah 19:25.

    I don't know if I am an Alexandrianist or not.

    I don't subcribe to the theory that God replaced the Greek and Hebrew (the languages of the Scripture) with 17th century Elizabethan-Jacobean Period English re-inspired words via the translators of the 1611 AV.

    Nor that those words supercede the Hebrew and Greek.

    Nor that the "errors" of the AV (1611 First Edition) are in reality "advanced revelation".

    Does that make me an Alexandrianist?

    I am not an Egyptian. So I do not know how I could possibly be a practicing Alexandrian.

    Recall that Alexandria was the home of the Greek Translations
    of the Old Testament (Law & Prophets) called the
    LXX or Septuagint. An edition of the LXX (Roman numerals for '70') was
    probably the Bible Version read by Jesus. There were multiple editions
    of the LXX written from about 200BC.

    In the Wikipedia article about the LXX it is said:
    So Origen of Alexandria, Egypt, did have something to do with our
    current Bibles - not much, but something :)

    And what was the origin of Origen, Ed?

    Sorry about that, but I just couldn't resist!

    Tee Hee.

    If 'origin' is the present tense wouldn't the past tense
    be 'origined' instead of your word 'origened'?

    Note for the peanut gallery:
    This conversation is no more 'out of whack' than the
    voting :(

    Next i'm sure we will work on 'ArmInian' and 'ArmEnian'.

    This "poll" is just another example of the anti KJV crowd trying to pick a fight.

    Tee Hee, I guess I hit a raw nerve??

    Like I told my wife:
    I use more KJVs than he do! :saint:

    2 Timothy 3:16 (KJV1611 Edition):
    All Scripture is giuen by inspiration of God, & is profitable
    for doctrine, for reproofe, for correction,
    for instrution in righteousnesse,


    I believe by faith in Jesus the Christ that
    All Scripture is giuen by inspiration of God.

    I also believe that 'God' includes God the Father,
    God the Son (AKA: Messiah Jesus), and God
    the Holy Spirit.

    I also believe that ALL SCRIPTURE includes
    the Bibles listed at the top of a nearby poll/page:

    Geneva Bible of 1587
    KJV1611 Edition
    KJV1769 Edition
    KJV1873 Edition
    NASB = New American Standard Bible
    NIV = New International Version
    ESV = English Standard Version

    and on this page:

    Brother Ed, it seems as if you search the KJV mostly for ammo.

    Tee Hee!

    I got kicked off one board for quoting:

    Romans 10:9 (KJV1611 Edition):
    That if thou shalt confesse with thy mouth
    the Lord Iesus, and shalt beleeue in thine heart,
    that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saued.


    Which when you pronounce it in 1611 English
    sounds a whole lot like the KJV used by many people:

    Romans 10:9 (KJV1769 Edition):

    [FONT=Arial, Geneva, Helvetica]That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth
    the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart
    that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

    This isn't the board you were expelled from Ed. I think I can speak for all in saying that we love and respect you. We wouldn't throw you out even if we could.

    Please stop poking at raw nerves.

    Amen - this is could be possible now and then.

    A lot of preachers use the King James in their pulpits but don't really believe it. I've seen this often enough. Not saying you fit the bill here e, but it does appear that way sometimes.

    You're absolutely wrong about that, AF! As has been said over and over and over again ad nauseum, no one here is anti KJV. What we are is anti KJVO! We stand against the myth of KJVOnlyism. We all love and hold dear the great old KJV and we realize it had a special place in history. But we also realize the KJV has been replaced by versions that inerrantly convey the word of God in today's language. Claiming that those on this board who stand against the KJVO myth are against the KJV is a deliberate misrepresentation, a repeat of the same old tired and disproven false accusation.
