    Well , it may not have been known as the KJO deal in his time , but the movement started in the late 60's shortly after he left the pastorate .He favored the KJV , but he was not KJV only . He freely quoted other renderings of particular passages if he thought they were more accurate in other versions .

    The following is from Knowing The Times ( pages 40,41 ).

    Some people seem to be conservative evangelicals simply because they will not examine anything other than the contentions of their own school of thought . The type of person who says that , he believes the whole Bible in the authorized Version ' from cover to cover, including all the commas as well ' , is almost certainly one who is unaware of the problems of a translator and is probably equally oblivious of the nature of the writing in the earliest manuscripts and their lack of punctuation marks . Such a man is often one who fears to look into such matters lest he should be confronted by tests of his faith .

    It doesn't require any faith to believe the Bible is "fallible",

    however to believe that heaven and earth will pass away before God will allow the seal of infallible to be broken on his word requires a leap of faith not many can make.

    Joh 10:35 and the scripture cannot be broken;

    It takes even less faith to know it is infallible.
