In another thread, AVBunyan had posted: "It appears many today are not as concerned in the individual “words” of the scripture. It appears to me that many today believe that as long as the “message” or the “thought” is somewhere in whatever version they use then it is ok. I believe God is interested in his “individual words” and these little 2 and 3 letter words make a difference – such as “in” vs. “of” or “a” vs. “the” or “ye” vs. “you”. The message of God is made up of individual words and one ought to make sure the individual words are right. My authority is the text of a present day King James Bible" <<<<<< _________________________________ Here are some documented claims of some KJV authors about KJV editions. KJV-only author Dave Reese claimed: "If words are changed, it is not the King James Version. It is another Bible" (The Book No One Can Read, p. 56). KJV-only author Jim Ellis asked: “How could it be a King James Bible if it is different from the King James Bible?“ (Only Two Bibles, p. 17). Charles Perkins wrote: “Personally I cannot find anything ‘Godly’ about changing even one word in the King James Bible” (Flaming Torch, April-June, 1998, p. 7). Attacking the idea that the New Scofield Reference Bible has the same basic text as the KJV, William Grady contended: "A lost man would laugh at the suggestion that a particular text could be promoted as the same text with even one alteration" (Final Authority, p. 311). Raymond Blanton wrote: “If man changes one word he has corrupted the Word of God” (Perilous Times, March, 1998, p. 2). Bill Bradley asked: “Would you allow someone to take your King James Bible and change it in more than 130 places, and still call it a King James Bible?“ (Carter, Elephant, p. 142). Len Smith wrote: “Be careful if you go buy a King James Version. The publishers will deceitfully call some of them Authorized Versions without letting you know they’ve changed some of the words, some of the spelling, and some of the capitalization” (Age of Reason, D22, p. 9). Mickey Carter wrote: “Some Bible publishers will print what on the cover reads ‘King James Version,‘ yet without any warning anywhere make changes on the inside” (Things that are Different, p. 90). E. W. Whitten claimed: “If any variance or inconsistency can be found in the truth, or version, the entire article is tainted and no longer has any credibility” (Truth, p. 35). Are the publishers of editions based on the 1769 Oxford edition deceitful for calling their edition that changed some words and changed some spelling and capitalization a KJV? In effect, KJV-only advocates are promoting current KJV's with many more than one hundred thirty alterations from the original 1611 edition of the KJV as being the same text as the 1611. KJV-only advocates often do not apply their own statements and claims consistently. Even D. A. Waite seemed to make an issue out of the updating of spelling in some present KJV editions. Concerning the Open Bible KJV edition, D. A. Waite wrote: “I came to some words that were spelled differently, so I couldn’t make a true comparison. . . . I couldn’t tell if it was a change from the original King James or not. I’m not sure what text they use” (Defending the KJB, p. 231). Is it unreasonable to expect that a person who compared the 1611 edition with one present-day Oxford edition should be able to compare other present KJV editions? Has the text of the KJV remained every word the same from 1611 until 1890 or until today? Which present-day edition of the KJV is the one that has all the individual words right? Do the 2 and 3 letter words make a difference between KJV editions? In what year were all the individual words of a KJV edition first made right without any errors of any kind including any errors by printers? For example, there would be over 3,000 words different between the last Cambridge KJV edition [the 2005 New Cambridge Paragraph Bible] and the present-day Oxford KJV edition. There would be around 2,000 differences that affect the sound between the 1611 edition and the present-day Oxford KJV edition in the Scofield Reference Bible.
