The following is said at The KJV Debate: A Plea for Moderation <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR> The King James Only movement has been both a positive and destructive force in contemporary Christianity. While the King James Version is defended with passion by zealous believers, including myself, many have gone too far. This is apparent in the way some treat anyone who does not agree with them. Certain individuals lambaste other Christians as apostates if they support any other version. Some are willing to go to the stake for every punctuation mark or typographical error. Others have taken sarcasm to unheard-of heights. These actions are bringing harm to the cause. Some of these same people have done a great deal to advance an appreciation for the best English translation. But, instead of persuading those who have been seduced by the modern trend in designer Bibles, they are polarizing the two opposite camps.... It seems to me that KJV advocates need to make up their minds. They must logically go in one of two directions. 1. Either argue that the KJV was completely reinspired, due to the loss of the integrity of the original language manuscripts. In this case, the "preservation" argument is meaningless, and should be abandoned. or, 2. Accept that the KJV is just a translation of the very best manuscript tradition. In this case, the KJV must be treated as a translation, not the original. Allowance must be made for revision into more modern English, as long as the integrity of the Traditional Text is maintained. This does not necessarily mean that one should accept any existing modern translation, if it is felt that they are inferior to the KJV. But, the text of the KJV cannot be the standard that we judge all other translations by, but the underlying Greek and Hebrew texts. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE> See whole article at above link.
