I'm new here, and not as educated as most here seem to be. I am posting here because it seems to be a controversial subject which I am sure there will be debate as to the correct answer. I've grown up southern Baptist, and until I was an adult, I never heard of KJV only. However, the SB church I attend has believed that way since I've been a member at 18yrs old. About three years ago, our church called an independent fundamental baptist pastor who constantly pushes this KJV only matter. A few independent baptist members from other churches have joined our church, and now I am going to get to my question. Would you support a mission fund such as Annie Armstrong, or otherwise if the funds may not go to a KJV only missionary? This has been an argument given by our pastor as to why he is not supportive of SB mission causes. I think this is wrong. Most of the independent members don't even participate in our church evangelism, visitation, or other outreach. Why is it such a big deal? Shouldn't we just be glad that someone went out into the world to share the word?? Does it really matter if the word came from KJV only? Thanks for listening.
