Just passing through. I'm usually in another area and decided to expand my horizons and visit you guys. Honestly, I was quite shocked to discover that there are still people who believe that the KJV is the only version God wants us to use. That really just baffles my mind. My wife and I tutored Greek students in seminary and I remember debating the validity of certain ancient texts used to develop the canon, etc, but I can not imagine someone being so uninformed as to think that those who interpreted the original Greek into English the first time were somehow more inspired or gifted than modern translators are today. Today, we have more accurate and older manuscipts with a more complete understanding of the biblical times through archelogical discoveries and the like. By what authority would one deem this translator better than another one? I have heard of apostolic authority but I've never read a thing about translator authority. Surely reasonable people understand that the text is written in Hebrew and Greek and that every translation is an interpretation of the original language. Don't get me wrong. I like the poetic nature of the KJV, but to consider it as God's ordained version seems quite speculative and extremely narrow-minded to me. I still find it difficult to believe that this belief exists with the information we have today.
