    So what is this greatest doctrinal development the world has ever known that happened while the KJV was the dominant version? What exactly are these newly developed doctrines and why are they so great?

    Tee Hee, this topic reminds me of a saying
    from the Vietnam intervention era:

    Suppose they gave a war and nobody came.

    Sorry Sister, your question is not likely
    to be answered. For some are wont to
    cut and paste without reading, read
    their one and only one Bible
    without their mind in action, etc.

    May God's good blessings flow freely
    this Monday unto Sister Russell55, her
    family, and her ministry. Amen!

    Well, at least it won't be 'cause I didn't give the opportunity for an explanation.

    Perhaps the individual was alluding to the dispensational view of the "economy" of God.

    Covenant Theology might also qualify (the arch-enemy of dispensationalism - IMO).

    Obviously this would be subjective to the individual's view.

    Maybe its one of those that's being referred, but it's pretty hard to see how either one of those can be considered "greatest doctrinal development the world has ever known".

    Greater than the time of the church fathers when many of the truly important doctrines (like the trinity, the hypostatic union, etc) were codified?

    Greater than the time of the reformation which brought about a return to the "old doctrines"?

    Out with hyperbole as a form of argument!

    The KJVO ignores the fact that the reformation took place BEFORE the AV was made. As for doctrinal development, the earlier English BVs had the same doctrines as does the AV and every other valid version that followed.

    If the KJVOs wanna talk about doctrinal development, perhaps they should start with their own. There's been sort of a KJVO doctrine around for a long time, but it wasn't taken very seriously until after Ben Wilkinson's 1930 book. Then, a whole new variation of that doctrine developed as more authors saw a cash cow there for the milking by writing KJVO books based upon Wilkinson's work, with imaginations of their own thrown in. Thus, we have kind of an urban legend developed about the King James Bible, something never intended by its makers, and certainly not something based upon any truth. Just take a close look at the tenets of the KJVO doctrine-not one thing based upon any facts, nothing but guessowrk and opinion. It is one of the great dividers of Baptists throughout the English-speaking world, and it need not be, if more people would simply examine the basic facts for themselves to see how phony this myth really is.

    Or perhaps, the greatest doctrinal developement is that advanced relevation stuff made up by Ruckman and followed blindly Riplinger and others.
