    I hope this comes out right.....

    If you believe the KJV bible is the only correct bible for this time. How do you explain the errors in it. Like spelling errors etc. There is a vs in 1SAM that says something about 700 charriots and then in chron. its talkin about the same thing but it says 7000 charriots. There was a copiest mistake there. So for someone to say they believe every word and comma to be true in the KJV. How can that be when there are little mistakes like that? And I saw how when they are copying the KJV now you have to be careful cause they are adding stuff in to prevert it. Like not capitolizing spirit in some spots etc. Are we suppose to use a certain year of the KJV?

    I am a KJV believer. I don't use any other versions cause I believe the KJV came from the correct line of manuscripts.

    Is anyone following me here?

    thanks

    I'm a KJV believer, too. I use it for study, prayer, and meditation. However, since there's no biblical support for one translation over others, I don't believe the KJV has translational authority over any other translations.

    Of course you knew that I would chime in on this!!
    IMHO, if you love the AV as much as I do, you need to get a 1611, or a good copy of it as a real AV can cost over $50,000! [​IMG]

    The Protestant Syrian-Byzantine manuscripts of the reformation;not Jesuit/RCC manuscripts of the dark ages.

    I use the KJV because it was translated from the Textus Receptus or Preserved Text. The Textus Receptus agreed 99% in over 5,000 texts of this type that were found, with each other. And considering that it was written over a period of 1,600 years on 3 different continents in 3 languages, using 40 different authors, I find that nothing short of miraculous.

    The two texts that were found to be older, or the restored text as it is often called, did not agree even with each other. There was an average of 10 descrepancies per page. And part of the book of Mark was missing. But the people at the time it was discovered believed "Older must be better" and so it was used despite it's many textual errors.

    All Bibles including the Latin Volgate or Catholic Bible are based on the Restored Text, not the Preserved Text.

    And that is my basis for relying on the King James Version as the more accurate of versions out there.

    I also don't subscribe to the theory that majority usage makes something more right either. But if you know me at all, you already know that.

    This is a statement of what I believe. I offer it to give information and answer a question that was asked to the best of my ability. Not to judge anyone who believes otherwise as some do. I think each person needs to make up their own mind and come to their own reasoning about such things. ;)

    Haruo said,

    "One that's never been to Egypt, even though Egypt is where they took Jesus to preserve him from the corruption that was in Jerusalem. Another way in which the first shall be last etc."

    Good point. If Egypt is always representative of evil, why did God command Joseph to take Mary and Jesus there to flee Herod's wrath? Are we supposed to flee to the world?

    And do you abide by that particular part of the book of Mark that was missing? Do you pick up serpents? Do you drink poison? Do speak in other languages? Do you lay hands on the sick?... these are the "signs of them that believe," according to that part which is 'missing' in some manuscripts.

    Dear WisdomSeeker:

    Thank-you VERY much for your clarify information. It's probably out there and available on the web, but I generally have not been involved in this discussion until recently. I'm laughing at myself, really. I hadn't exactly had too strong an opinion in this area, but you know the LORD. :D HE has maintained my generally using the KJV - for reading, for meditation/devotionals, and for study. I have a few others sort of for extras as I and my late husband have received bibles as gifts over the years. But it is the KJV I open for myself. MUST be the LORD so carefully guiding and directing me!

    God bless!

    Princess
    Because, you see, I am a daughter of The KING!

    both lines, n all other lines are affected--that's why TR needs text crit as much as the critical text n majority text.

    n that's also why God says He's got His Word forever settled in ...

    which, of course, KJBOs r wont to misinterpret as a denial of God's Word on earth :rolleyes: sometimes i wonder why i bother ...

    Wisdomseeker. I totally agree with you. That is why I use the KJV.

    So no one still answered my ?

    Since copiest are changing little things in the KJV bible how do you know if you have a good one? Is it going to end up corupted? I wouldn't think so cause God said he'll preserve his word but they are already making small changes to it.

    Talk about "revisionist" history. Does everyone understand the "newspeak" (excuse me, Orwell) here?

    The OLDEST Greek texts (Sinaiaticus, Vaticanus) are now called "RESTORED"

    The NEWEST Greek texts (all copies of copies of copies from the Eastern Rites churches) are now called "PRESERVED"

    Does that ring as simply dishonest wording to make "A" look like "B" and "B" look like "A"?

    Sounds like another ruckmanism to me. Sad. [​IMG]

    Please explain. I've looked in 5 versions. They all include it in either v37, or footnoted in v36. It reads, Philip said, "If you believe with all your heart, you may." The eunuch answered, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God." I see nothing in this verse which says that the KJV, or any other translation, has translational authority over any other translations.

This is nothing new, and if this is being offered to establish the superiority of the AV, it utterly fails. It is also found in my Geneva Bible which predates the AV, not to mention my copies of the Tyndale and Wiclif Versions of God's Holy Word.
    Don't get me wrong: I love the AV more than Rakka Rage, or ANY KJV-Onlyist on this board. I do not, however, subscribe to KJV-Onlyism.

    If your saying I'm a ruckmanite. WRONG! I can't stand the guy.

    I don't care if someone uses another version of the bible. I believe God uses those versions as well. I just choose to use the KJV.

    This is what my church taught our congregation, that the older text had a lot of errors in it...and is commonly referred to as the "restored text".

    I don't think it's "Revisionist History" "Newspeak" "Orwellian" or "Ruckmanism" (Alan Ruckman?) to have a belief based on what a church has taught a person. Or to even be wrong for that matter.

    I appreciate your educated view points. And I am not opposed to be corrected if you think I am in error. But do you think you could tone down the disparaging remarks just a tad?

    And who the heck is Ruckman that he should have a whole "ism" named after him anyway? :rolleyes:

    Please show me the Scriptures referring to the "Restored."

    For example, the "preserved" texts refer to Psalm 12:6-7. [​IMG]
