I think he means like 50 years ago. You know, old. I mean, that's almost immediately after Jesus ascended, right? These KJV-onlyists have no sense of time-scale. They keep talking about the "old" religion and "old" paths (i.e. trying to argue "older is better", I guess), but don't realize that their old ways ain't so old. To KJV-onlies: Measure out 20 feet of string. Go out in your back yard and stretch it out, nailing each end of the string into the ground. This string represents church history, each foot represents a century. Mark off the following points: - start = the birth of Christ - 0 feet, 4 inches (1/3 of a century) = crucifixion - 0 feet, 11 inches (near end of first century) = last NT book written - 9 feet, 0 inches (roughly) = Masoretic O.T. completed - 13 feet, 10 inches = first English NT (Wycliffe, 1382) - 15 feet, 2 inches = first edition of the Textus Receptus (1516), also start of Reformation (1517) - 15 feet, 7 inches = first edition of the Geneva Bible (1560) - 16 feet, 1 inch = first edition of the KJV - 16 feet, 2 inches = Pilgrims leave behind persecution, land at Plymouth Rock - 17 feet, 9 inches = U.S.A (1776) - 18 feet, 9 inches = historical "fundamental" Baptist movement, in response to "modernism" - 18 feet, 10 inches = Westcott/Hort's critical NT, Spurgeon's preaching, etc. - 19 feet, 0 inches = RV and ASV, the first well-used "modern versions" - 19 feet, 4 inches = first KJV-only book written (1930) - 19 feet, 5 inches (roughly) = "old time religion" - 19 feet, 7 inches (roughly) = common modern versions (NASB, NIV) - end = today Now stand back and look at the whole thing to get some perspective. Until you do this, I can only roll my eyes when you talk of the "old" ways.
