The other versions (non AV) are not as strong on salvation by grace, the necessity of the blood, the Deity of Christ, etc. From reading the many threads on here I think most people agree with this. And if you agree with it, why would you want to use something other than the AV? Wouldn't you want the version that takes the strongest stance on these extremely important doctrines? Second question is...why do people fight against the AV so hard? There is not one other version that is fought against more than the AV. Why do people hate (and I know you don't all hate it) the AV so much?
