Moderators – if this has already been posted feel free to delete – I’m getting old and my memory fails me. Thanks I hear a lot of talk today about those poor ole’ King James translators and how they just couldn’t get it right. Poor God – got caught off guard did he by those ‘ole, misinformed, misguided, lost, etc. “Anglican”, Puritan folks? On another thread a poster went so far as to call the AV the “Anglican Version” and even insinuated some or most of the “Anglican” translators were unsaved. Folks are amusing aren’t they? Who needs “Happy Days” reruns for amusement when you can tune in to this kind of stuff? Alright now – about this “man in charge” issue. Oh yea, this is what they are really saying! What these folks are saying is because the translators were not biologists, zoologists, nuclear physicists, etc. then they were not capable of handling the tough issues in the translation. And if these KJV translators were “qualified” (like today’s translators - HA!!!!) then they wouldn’t have put unicorns, leviathans, dragons, and Easter in the Bible. I mean – how did those “poor ole’ Anglican translators miss such glaring translations?!?!?! These King James Bible questioners take the world’s view of man – I guess they believe man runs things and overrules God in areas of translating committees. They can trust God for their salvation but when it comes to the committee in 1604-1611 they can’t believe or don’t want to believe that God would intervene and work all things out after the counsel of his own will – Eph. 1:11. I know these men were not inspired or prophets – they were sinners like you and me. I just believe what God had them put down was inspired – II Tim. 3:16. Now you will say, “Well, if God was in the committee in 1604 then he could be in the committees today. Questions: 1. Why would God wait when the English language has gone downhill to the point where it has almost become street-gutter language? During 1611 the English language was at its peak. 2. Why would God wait to update his word for the 100th time in the last 50 years during a time when “Christianity” is at the lowest state ever? 3. Why would God use this modern, fleshly, worldly, carnal, apostate, compromising, weak, Bible-rejecting “Christianity” to “refine” his holy word? 4. Why would God wait until just before he comes back to update his word again?!?!?! God quit speaking around 400 years before Christ’s first coming and it appears he quit speaking around 400 years before Christ’s second coming. As you well know, Moses was a murderer, David was an adulterer and a murderer yet God got some pretty good books from them under his providential hand so I guess God could use those “‘ole misguided Anglicans.” So, when I hear this junk that the “Anglicans” did this and that because of their background and this is why all these “mistranslations” and blunders came up then I attribute this to these KJV doubters of not taking the providential viewpoint of history. I don’t care if many of those translators were a-millennial, baby-sprinkling Anglicans or whatever. God put a book together and “any ole’ bush will do” with God. These KJV rejecters have a very small view of God and his providential hand in history. I’m sure some believed in some works salvation but they still translated Romans and Ephesians!!! Give me a break. I’m not blowing a gasket because I can’t figure out what a unicorn is - all I know it is there and I believe it. Do you know what I’m learning after all these years? When these folks don’t understand something they automatically assume it is an error. This is the height of pride – thinking you can understand all that is in the Bible. Brethren – if I run across something I don’t understand and God doesn’t show me then by simple faith I assume God is not ready to show me. I don’t assume it is an error and pull out the 250 Greek and Hebrew lexicons and try to sort it out!!! My, what confusion! You have to settle the issue – does God run things or man? I, for one, have grown weary of modern “intellectuals and scholars” bashing the KJV translators - like some of these modern “scholars” think they are smarter? Wasn’t this fun? God bless!!
