    Just out of curiousity, how many KJVO's on this board resort to man made study helps to define words and phrases in the KJB?

    As an elementary school student I read at a grade level 4 years ahead of my class, but I had difficulty understanding the KJB. Of course, in high school I didn't care much for Shakespeare, either.

    Be truthful, do you find it necessary to resort to commentaries and dictionaries in order to illuminate certain passages?

    I have an uncle that is KJVO and thinks it's a sin to study from anything else other than a KJB.

    He's at least consistant.

    Comic book theology. Somehow seems fitting, Ed.

    By the way, that little pamphlet has 500 archaic words translated. Methinks they underestimate the number of archaic words and words still used that have radically different definitions today.

    On subject - the only "only" in my home church will not use a textbook or resource that does not use only the KJV(not sure which revision).

    The title of this thread suggests why every Christian, while not being KJVO, should have at least one edition of the KJV. Due to its longevity, there are far more study helps written for the KJV than there are for all other English versions combined.

    Yes, when I first got a computer I could have kicked the thing. I was so mad when things disappeared and wanted to keep them. But things have gotten better since.

    Imagine that! A KJVO dictionary. What will they come up with next. They did label the words right--archaic.

    I have seen KJVO's on this board refer to greek & hebrew studies as well as commentaries,dictionaries, handbooks,and other materials.
    I think the KJVO title refers to the version of the Bible they use being the Word of God in as much that it corrects the greek,hebrew,& aramaic texts,and is over-ridden by the Holy Spirit to be correct in the KJV English. We just have'nt gotten them to tell us which one of the KJV's it is that is inspired,there were several corrections and updates.
    Funny thing is this KJVO thing was started by a seventh day adventist.

    So, you have never looked up any (KJV) words to see what they mean?

    Plain Old Bill:Funny thing is this KJVO thing was started by a seventh day adventist.

    And another funny thing is how more than one KJVO likes to quite often quote the DEVIL, I.E. "Yea, hath God said...".
