    This morning the pastor preached on 2 Timothy 3 and when he read verse 3, he had to translate the word incontinent. He said "this means 'without self-control'". I looked in my NKJV and it said "without self-control". Now why do some people say that this version is invalid and even evil? The pastor's translation of the word was exactly the same as my Bible. Isn't the NKJV translated from the same manuscripts as the KJV, only with updated language? BTW, I had never even heard of KJVOism until about a year ago. I still can't understand it.
    If this gets nasty, please close it. Be nice guys! :love2:

    Yes, I've seen these before. The 2nd one is just "out there". Deadliest version on the market? Please.

    Anti-nKJV document: //4. While passing off as being true to the Textus Receptus, the NKJV IGNORES the Receptus over 1,200 times.//

    Double standard :( The KJVs ignore the Textus Receptus
    over 800 times. It is alright for the KJVs to ignore the TR
    sources but it is wrong for the nKJV to ignore the TR sources?
    (Yes, there are multiple Textus Receptus documents, something
    proven by the KJV Translator's margin notes.

    Speaking of margin notes, the translator footnotes of the
    nKJV translators denote all those times it varies from the TR.
    By contrast many KJV1769 Edition manuscripts ignore
    the KJV Translator's translation margin notes. So it is really
    false to say the nKJV 'ignores' the TR; instead the nKJV
    documents the variatios in the margin notes.
