    Have you ever believed in the KJVO position and changed? Have you changed TO the KJVO position from using other versions?

    Also, explain why you changed if you did.

    Nope. I haven't. I've always read from modern versions.

    I used the KJV exclusively for the first dozen years or so of my Christian life ( and several years before ) .

    I have never been caught-up in the KJVO jazz . It is completely irrational . I was never in any KJVO-driven groups when I was young and using the KJV only . Hmm , I was using the KJV only , but would not have been considered KJVO . Think about it .

    Trans-fat free posts like StefanM's get posted 3 min prior to hitting the SUBMIT REPLY button :thumbs:


    I'm still thinking about my reply - my name recorded next to my vote & I'm tempted to vote #1. If once changes TWICE don't they end up in the same place they started?

    If some one was once KJVO and then changed to use the MVs and then changed back to KJVO then actally 1 is not the correct response.
    However, 2 and 4 would both be valid. unfortunately, I didn't allow for multiple options. :(

    You know, I really wish I could go back and modify a poll.
    Every time I post a poll I find out there was a better way I could have worded the questions and/or given more options.

    I didn't even know there was a KJVO position until 15 years ago. I have always supported the textual body underlying the KJV and still do.

    I use the KJB exclusively. I don't ever get caught up in jazz, it's too irrational to follow without an improvisation of the music at the desire of the musicians who performed it. It follows no real rules.

    I am not in any group who drives anything except automobiles, airplanes, forklifts, and other motorized vehicles.

    Think about it? What?

    When I was 12, 36 years ago in 1972, hearing a preacher on the radio dealing with the reasons to saty with the KJB, I decided then to always stay with what is proven to be the word of God over and over again!:wavey:

    I was lost at that time! Now that I've been saved fro over 15 years, I have even become dogmatic about the issue.:godisgood:

    I think you should discern between a metaphor and a meatball.

    KJV, is for me. I haven't changed and never will. Now that I've put a target on my back you may take aim and fire. Wait, if your Rifle has many sites how are you going to hit the target?

    Now, Dale-c I will not subject myself to that double barreled shot gun you are picking up. It has a way of hitting the truth or scattering lies. And no one can tell the difference.

    I was originally a low-grade KJVO. I never sat under preaching against modern versions, but the people around me frowned upon anything other than the KJV. Of course, the only translations I had heard of were the King James and the NIV at the time.

    Thankfully I discovered that there are several wonderful translations out there and I have never looked back. I still love the KJV, but I carry a NKJV and study using several translations. Come to think of it, my pastor does the exact same thing. ;)

    [​IMG]It was the silent "e" effect. Gets me every time. I think they call it the "Dan Quayle syndrome".

    Similar for me. I had never been taught the Ruckman type KJVO or the GA Riplinger theory either.
    ACtually, Ruckman was always disrespected but nonetheless I had many KJVO friends.
    Some more than other.

    My problem for a while was that I felt the need to one translation that was THE translation.
    I was looking for a modern KJV that would be THE bible.
    It bothered me that there didn't seem to be any effort to come up with a modern TR translation.
    I am learning now that perhaps the TR is not the most complete underlying text to use.
