    I am KJVO. When trying to understand scripture, is it acceptable to:

    1) rely on my personal knowledge and the Holy Spirit alone

    2) consult old dictionaries (Webster's 1828)

    3) consult modern historical dictionaries (Oxford English Dictionary)

    4) Consult old versions (Geneva, etc)

    5) Consult the Greek and Hebrew (through Strong's, interlinears, Englishman's concordances, etc.)

    6) Consult modern versions on a verse-by-verse basis

    7) Read modern versions alongside the AV, but keep in mind the AV is authoritative.

    What do you think? How do you study the KJV?

    According to Gail Riplinger, the KJV has
    a "built-in dictionary" that gives a
    perfect definition of all its own words.

    Why then would a KJV-only advocate ever
    need to consult a dictionary when studying
    the KJV?

    I believe you should use all the resources at your disposal, especially the 1828 dictionary. However, remember that it is the KJV that is THE BIBLE!
