    Why is Bible Versions/Translations "Baptists Only"?

    Is it possible for any one that is not Baptist to join in those discussions or to start threads?

    How about the first question?

    Why is Bible Versions/Translations Baptists Only?

    It's not like it's JW's when they don't want anyone challenging their Bible version.

    I just don't see why that is exclusive to Baptists.

    Hark,
    Nothing stops you from starting a version thread in the Christian fourm.

    Mostly because the version\translation debate seems to be a uniquely Baptist one. How many Presbyterian, Methodist, or Bible Churches advertise themselves as KJV Only?

    Who hasn't treated you as a fellow Christian?

    And if you're wanting to be treated as a fellow Baptist, you can convert, lol. Just keep in mind that as has been stated several times, Baptists are diverse and often do not treat each other as fellow Christians.


    God bless.
