    We have the perfect theme song for KJVO...it's called "Taps".

    Jim-1611 : It makes me think that you are not the least bit familiar with the HCSB .

    That title on the new-age hymnbook saying : "Stealth Remixed" is a supposedly "funny line" . Before the TNIV was even released or seen by the public World magazine had a very prominent article referring to the TNIV as the "Stealth Bible" . Now the HCSB is being put into the same category and vilified by those who like to major on misinformation ( I am being charitable ) .

    Okay Jim,
    If you have one ounce of guts I challenge you to read "The King James Only Controversy" by James R. White. I don't castigate you for being KJO,I am KJP. If you are going to poke fun at others at least know the facts so you can do it intelligently.:godisgood:

    Hey, I read this book and marked many quotations by James R. White. I do not recommend this book to anyone because of many false comments in this book. He is wrong.

    Actually, you are the one that is wrong. The book is a good source for refuting the unbiblical notion that is KJVOnlyism.

    Askjo, disagreeing does not make White wrong. But to disagree with facts in knee jerk fashion is a typical KJVO response. The deal is don't be so defensive. The KJV is a wonderful translation. I am KJ preferred. Read it daily memorize from it ,preach from it and teach from it.

    Could someone share with me just a couple thoughts as to why one dislikes the HCSB?

    1. Great challenge!

    2. I grew up on the KJV but later moved away from it.

    3. I respect those who still use it. But it is not my choice of Bible.

    4. But I wholeheartedly respect the KJVP but have little tolerance for the KJVO or any other Onlyism.

    5. I think the HCSB is a breath of fresh air in translation. It is another effort to make the Word of God contemporary, while remaining faithful to Plenary Inspiration and Authority of Scripture.

    6. There's no need to hate on the HCSB.

    Well, we have the KJV based on the Masoretic text, and the others on the Texus-Recptus. Is one "more accurate" than the other? More reliable? I'm using the NASB at the moment but the KJV, with a good dispensational commentary, is calling me. The HCSB is sort-of a NASB, in my view.

    NOTE: I stand corrected! See next post! (Just my weary, sloppy phraseology, actually.) Time to hold hands with the wife, perhaps to dream. Nite, all........

    1. You stand to be corrected here.

    2. The OT is from the MT for the KJV and the NT is from the TR.

    3. Modern Versions are more from critical texts, like the Alexandrian text-type and some form of eclectic text-type.

    4. Even I stand to be corrected.

    This book has been totally debunked. I challenge you to read Clouds book. "The KJVO controversy" He puts Davy boy to shame, then read "Modern Version Hall of Shame" :applause:

    I would be embarrassed to be associated with the [attack on Bibles snipped] versions.

    We have Laodicean schools, producing Laodicean pastors, who use Laodicean Bibles, that have produced Laodicean churches. “Neither Hot or Cold” :sleeping_2:

    EHUD & Co.

    Since it is a fair question, may I ask if you have read the book referred to, whereby you were challenged? TCGreek posted that he thought it was a great challenge. I'll admit I haven't read White's book, nor have I read the one you recommended, and make no insinuations, good or bad, about any book I haven't read. Another's idea, whether or not I generally agree with them, is simply not good enough for that, where I'm concerned.

    And I'm still wondering who is your " & Co"?? I have yet to see one single post where another claimed he or she was a part of your "& Co."

    BTW, your comment of "Laodecian Bibles" and "Laodecian versions" are direct and unwarranted slams against (a) Bible version(s).

    And I can find, I'm sure, just as many 'Laodecian' type churches that use any, every, and all versions, including any you may prefer, FTR.

    You have been cut a lot of slack by the Mods, because you are fairly new on the BB. Don't push your luck!

    Just some friendly advice, as you can read the posting rules on this forum, as well as I.

    Since you don't like the book, it must be a good book... I will try to read it.

    Not only the KJVOism, but he also accused the KJV translation.
