    What is the real story that the KJVo people like to tell about Logsdon, who was supposedly one of the men who came up with the NASB idea and write the introduction?

    Did he really turn KJVO or is this just a big story? What was the real story about him.

    I know the KJVonly people just love to quote this, Riplinger was quoting his letters.

    Is there any truth to the fact that he may actually have changed to a KJVo and does anybody know the real reason why?

    (I don't need a KJVo myth here. I'm looking for the truth.)

    Thank you, TC. That was a good link. So, it appears Ms. Riplinger does it again.

    Dr. Frank Logsdon authored his little booklet about his testimony against the NASB.

    But, Logsdon never claimed to be a NASB translator or co-founder of the NASB or an employee of Lockman Foundation like Riplinger and other KJVO's claim.

    I ordinarily don't quote David Cloud, but his analysis seems to be fairly balanced:

    "Part of the problem has been caused by some who have made claims for Logsdon which he did not himself make. Note that Logsdon never said that he actually worked on the NASV or the Amplified Bible translation or that he was an actual employee of the Lockman Foundation. He did not claim to be "co-founder" of the NASV."

    It means, in English, that the KJVOs have concocted yet another fishing story. Many of them are always fishing for stories, real or imagined, that they hope will lend a little justification to their KJVO myth, and this is another of them.

    Another fave is Riplinger's story of the anti-Onlyism gent losing his voice on the John Ankerberg show. However, Ankerberg himself squelched that story by placing a recording of that episode online.

    Will someone please post that link? I don't have time to hunt it right now.
