Frankly I am not sure how anyone can hold such a view. I mean if there was NIV Only or ESV Only groups I would be against them as well. Has any of the KJVO actually read the 1611 preface? The original translators encouraged the updating of the Bible!!! The ESV follows the same translation line as the KJV yet its rejected in KJVO churches and looked down upon. From the Mind of God to the Mind of Man, James Williams, pp. 153. Some examples in the KJV of ancient language not in the vulgar tongue James 2:3 (KJV) 3And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing, and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor, Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: Numbers 23:22 (KJV) 22God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn. Numbers 24:8 (KJV) 8God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows. Job 39:9 (KJV) 9Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib? Isaiah 13:21 (KJV) 21But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there. Three questions for King James Only 1. Which KJV is inspired, since it was revised ten times, the last being in 1850? 2. Why do KJV only people reject the apocrypha, the original 1611 version contained the apocrypha? 3. WHEN was the KJV "given by inspiration of God" – 1611, or any of the KJV major revisions in 1613, 1629, 1638, 1644, 1664, 1701, 1744, 1762, 1769, and the last one in 1850 (ten in all)?
