    Well, I must admit, I'm not completely opposed to translating "baptize" as "dip," but everything else...yikes!

    At least it got the "dipping" part right.

    The "Good As New" has been out for about 2 years, and is indeed a piece of junk, to put it mildly.

    I am going to make a point here.......

    Why is this not Scripture A.K.A The Bible ?

    If MV's are scripture why is this one not, its doing the same thing all other MV's do, translating, and yet they are called scripture but this one is no good ?

    What standard are we using ?


    My sarcasm may not come across in this post so I will tell you I am being sarcastic but I would like an answer please, an honest answer thank you.

    What makes any translation a Bible Rev Lowery?

    Why can we determine that one translation is valid and all the rest are not?

    If the KJV is scripture why is this one not, its doing the same thing the KJV did, translating, and yet it is called scripture but this one is no good ?

    What standard are we using ?

    The book above is not even an attempt at faitful translation as admitted by its author.

    Rev. Lowery asked:

    Why is this not Scripture A.K.A The Bible ?

    Because as a translation, its quality is garbage.

    Why do so many KJV-onlyists seem to think that if you reject the KJV alone as God's perfect and preserved yada yada yada, you're open to believing all other Bibles are of equal quality?

    Quality and philosophy as pointed out. Also, the KJV is a translation as well. God didn't inspire it. It was the work of some great nonetheless fallible Anglican scholars.

    The known rules of Greek to English translation, the evidence for the Bible in the original language mss and texts, and the statements of the authors of this thing.

    Further, if you take the KJV, NKJV, NASB, ESV, and other faithful versions and compare them to this one, you will find the witnesses you need against it.

    The amazing thing to me about KJVO's is that they can miss God's amazing providence in providing us with various translations that teach the exact same truths. In as much as they were made independently, they provide the best witness of each other's accuracy that we could ask for.

    It has the same value as if DD, TCassidy, and all the Mv's put together with codex sinaticus including the gospel of Judas all wrapped in one big tamale just as it were and had been written bythemselves with their own version! [​IMG] The DTMJ Version! Amen!

    Still waiting for Mr. Correa to make a post that doesn't attack other versions, or other posters...

    "Further, if you take the , NKJV, NASB, ESV, and other faithful versions and compare them to this one, you will find the witnesses you need against it". Who said they Are faithful?

    "Comparison" may yield differences; it does not establish the superiority of one text; it simply shows what texts differ.

    I always enjoy your posts, William. They give my mind a rest.

    I do "rebel" sometimes...if you define that as "going against the norm." But my goal is to avoid rebelling against God or His plan for me.

    And I'm probably a bit different (weirder?) than some...there's a whole bunch of stuff that can cause stress. Not much on the BB gets me uptight. I might laugh a bunch, or shake my head...but I don't need the hammer, wood, and spikes. It's all good 'round these parts.

    But as the culture I deal with becomes less and less biblically literate over time, I continue to search for translations that are faithful yet readable. I constantly pray for discernment, and am a country mile from being one who will offer a blanket endorsement of all MV's.

    OK heres my question if we dont have a complete 100% absolute Word of God then what do you have 99% of Gods Word ? 99% of God is not 100% God, which is the only God I know. 100% God, all God all the time. If we say we dont have 100% Gods word we are absolutely 100% calling God a liar.
    Its either all or none. I dont serve a God of error and fallibility. If you do then you are not serving the True God your serving a God of your own creation just as all MV's do. They serve there own purpose's and not that of Gods.

    I will proudly say that the KJV 1611 is Gods 100% inerrant word perfect and without flaw.

    Why? Because my God never makes mistakes period.

    So, did he make mistakes in all the translations before and after? What about the Greek texts that differ from the KJV? Were those errors on God's part as well?
