    Is the written Word of God bound to one book?
    Or is the Scripture Unbound as expressed
    in a multiple of inerrant books?

    Michelle: "There are no contradictions in God's words,
    and with a little effort on our parts, and desire
    to know the truth, in prayer, God will show us
    the answer, and sort out for us what
    seems to be contradicting, which in fact it is not."

    Amen, Sister Michelle -- Preach it! [​IMG]

    Interesting, you make an assumption (axiom)
    that any error perceived in the KJV1769
    is NOT a problem of God but is a problem
    of your understanding.
    I make an assumption (axiom) that
    any error perceived in or between the
    English Versions is NOT a problem of God,
    not a problem of the translators, but
    is a problem of my understanding.

    Shawn to an MV supporter: "Do you ever get
    dizzy going around in circles?

    More likely to get dizzy dancing around
    answering some questions. As i recall,
    Can you show a verse in the Bible that
    shows God limits Himself to one and
    only one language, one and only one book?

    Say, don't Baptists traditionally eschew
    dancing?

    I cleave to it, personally, Ed.

    Love that word "cleave". Talk about one of the most confusing

    dabaq = "cleave" in AV, but means adhere

    baqa = "cleave" in AV, but means rip apart, rend

    Two separate words in the original, both translated by the same English word. Perfectly acceptable, but CONFUSING??!!

    THANK GOD for modern English.

    (BTW, I was not surprised to see the NIV not use "cleave" at all, lest its dual-and-opposite meaning confuse. But BOTH meanings are used in the NASB; THAT was surprising to me)

    Concerning Matthew 23:24, Brother Will J.
    Kenny re-p[osts a huge post.

    The Holy Scripture says in 19 words what
    it took Brother Will J. Kenny to explain
    in four screens :D

    Matthew 23:24 (NLT):
    Blind guides! You strain your water so
    you won't accidently swallow a gnat;
    then you swallow a camel!

    So which will have have: the
    NLT scripture by itself or
    the KJV1769 plus four screens of
    Will J. Kenny? Ed's basic belief:
    the Holy Scripture is all we need.
    The Holy Scripture, God's written Word
    for mankind can be found in all faithful
    English Translations
    (I have no facility to judge translations
    in other langauges).

    SKAN:

    Sorry I didn't notice your post earlier. What you have written does not even come close to W.F. Albright. (Unless my information about him is wrong). Albright knew something like 34 languages. Many grammars today are written by his former students.

    Also how could any man be as scholarly in the past as those today because they did not even have the amount of information that is available today? Many of the extrabiblical and biblical manuscripts had not even been discovered until recently. So I don't see how the kind of scholarship that can be attained was even possible then.

    Lacy Evans about Ruckman: "He is a little
    coarse in his demeanor."

    "Ruckman's only fault is that
    he happens to believe the
    KJV is the standard."

    Your two statements (from the same post)
    contradict each other.

    :confused:

    Ruckman is a "little coarse"? Vulgar cussing, four-letter words, how many wives . . a "little coarse"??

    Not to mention the incredible Bible computer tools we have today, In years past if one wanted to do a search of the church "fathers" (for instance) on a particular subject or passage one had to begin the process of a 20,000 page search which could take months, years. Today one can do a computer scan of the same takes seconds.

    Wow, I didn't realize Riplinger actually claims that the MV's are a conspiracy to a "Luciferian World Order". At least that is what the supporter for Riplinger on the talk-show says. The talk-show discussed in the thread about Ankerberg.

    I had no idea she went so far. Amazing.

    Why, Phillip, didn't you know she was God's secretary?

    Guy just quoted on this radio show: "I would rather have one of Gail Riplinger's imperfect books than your imperfect Bibles."

    Please Brother Trotter.
    The politically correct (PC) term for
    was "secretary" is now "administrative assistance".

    That's scarey. When listening to Aikman's radio program, go down to the second series and listen to them. The second program in the middle Bible translations is about Riplinger. He has an NIV editor, a NKJV editor and NASB editor. This does prove to be pretty interesting because of the level of scholarship represented on the non-KJVo side.

    Glad there is scholarship on one side of the debate!

    haha.

    It carries the same pattern as everywhere. KJVo appears to be emotional based while non-KJVo is based on evidence.

    How that KJVO man ever got a doctorate amazes me. His scholarship is nonexistent. Certainly he mentions the same arguments we hear from many KJVO's. I was astounded when he stated that a knowledge of Hebrew and Greek would not improve on the KJV 1611.

    Everyone ought to listen to their debate and the faulty scholarship of Riplinger's lies and deceit.

    Yes, I heard that too. Amazing isn't it. I listened to the whole thing. (Or at least what is available without buying the tape). They jumped all over Riplinger quite well. I was pleased with that.
