    Actually option 5, like 6, are put there because only those who vote in the poll are permitted to view it. This gives everyone a chance to see it.

    It should have included another option:

    They are ALL the perfect Word of God because different editions/versions with different words are the same Word of God.

    Does it surprise you that one KJVo has already admitted not wanting to vote on the right one?

    Well, we have one vote for "some other KJV."

    How about some enlightenment?

    Gipp says he can hand "his mother" a 1611 KJV and tell her it's the inerrant, perfect, et al. Word of God.

    Where are the Gippists? [​IMG]

    (the above was taken from a debate he was part of on the Ankerberg show back in the mid 90s. If you want more information about how to obtain the video, or part of it, PM me [​IMG] )

    Do you mean which KJV edition accurately represents the Hebrew and Greek manuscripts from which it was translated, or do you mean which edition is without error of any kind?

    It is very hard to have any work in which man is involved be completely without errors of some sort. For example, your question above contains a spelling error. Still, the message is very obvious.

    I agree with you Pastor Bob - yet we have been told elsewhere that this perfectly perfect KJV exists.

    What did I misspell? Oh see it now - "enyone" ;) - but I don't claim to be perfectly perfect, only mostly perfect ;) .

    You are right Pastor Bob. C4K is trying to get an answer that he spent 20 pages on fruitlessly trying to find out which of the KJV's are the word-for-word, letter-for-letter, comma-for-comma correct edition from the KJVo's who believe this.

    Obviously, they do not have an answer to their own dilema.

    And around the maypole we go. ;)

    What is the difference between 2 sentences below?

    The KJV is not perfect.

    The KJV is the perfect Word of God.

    All this poll is about it findingwhich editionof the KJV is that perfect Word of God, nothing else.

    Apparently nobody is willing to tell us.

    Thank you James, I assume you mean the 1762 Cambridge?

    Does that mean then that all other edotions of the KJV have mistakes, and are therefore not totally perfect?

    I guess thats the one, I don't even own one myself, but if I had to judge based on content which one was the most pure, there are a couple of differences that contextually seem right in the Cambridge over the Oxford text. Just my opinion.

    Thank you for an answer. Some folks is your neck of the woods also the courage to pick one as well, but those I know of claim the 1769 Oxford as the perfectly perfect Word of God.

    Although I disagree with that contention, I do appreciate those who will answer the question instead of evading it.

    I wonder if KJVo's will split over Oxford and Cambridge since only one can be perfectly perfect ;) ?

    Can any good thing come out of Oxford? ;) I'll read any of them, although Nelson tends to mess with the text a bit. I'd read an NIV if it was all I had, but praise God He provided plenty of good manna for His pilgrims. There may come a day, though, when the King James is hard to find and I think they will be sorely missed.

    Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
