I'm going to try this again. Note that this thread is strictly about definitions. Please do not make it an argument about different theories or methods of translation. Argue about the definitions if you wish, but don't argue about the methods. I'm going to make this easier so people don't get mixed up by not putting any definitions in this OP. This will make it easier to figure out the OP.
So, please put up definitions of your own or quotes from others about methods of translation or...
It seems like anti-KJVO is pervasive on this board. I'm not condemning any one on either side as anti-KJVO can have as many flavors as KJVO. Though it does make me wonder what, specifically those who do stand against it, feel God's promise to preserve His Word looks like today...? You know, where is it, what is it, sort of thing.
How Gender-Neutral Bible Translations Endanger Christian Marriage - The Imaginative Conservative

I carefully re-read Will Kinney's article, "Is King James Onlyism Scriptural?", and, while he SAYS it is, he FAILS TO PROVIDE ONE QUARK OF SCRIPTURE THAT SAYS IT IS ! ! !
Instead, he posts several verses that are found in every other valid English Bible translation, & includes the disproven "Psalm 12:6-7 thingie" as well. (The AV 1611 itself proves that "thingie" wrong with its footnote for the 2nd "them" in V7 - "Heb. him, I. Euery one of them.")
He refuses to acknowledge any of the...
I have assumed that users of the New King James Version, at least to some degree, use the NKJV because they prefer the Textus Receptus over the Critical Text. Obviously some may have just found it and liked it, with no reference to or even knowledge of the text question. However, it would seem that some who like the TR and also like updated language would choose the NKJV. Nevertheless, I have not found any writing of TR advocates in favor of the NKJV. For example, the Trinitarian Bible...
Given the Coronavirus pandemic, and the fact we have many members who are older, my church is practicing social distancing. We have our sermons being delivered via Facebook Live. Our small groups are using Zoom to do group chat.
Anyone else getting this problem.?
On another thread the term "thought for thought" came up. I thought it would be helpful if we did a thread defining various translation theories or methods. Quote from someone else, or make up your own definitions. Either way is fine.
I'll start with definitions of translation itself. Here are a couple of quotes from secular experts:
“Translate: To render a word of text written in one language into another language, retaining the full and correct meaning of the word or text in the other...
Do some seem to assume or suggest that the KJV is not being properly respected if the same measures/standards are applied to it as are applied to other English Bible translations?
If KJV defenders apply certain measures/standards to other English Bibles, is it not fair and just when the same exact measures/standards are also applied to the KJV?
Should more respect be shown to the KJV than to the pre-1611 English Bibles of which it is a revision?
Does partiality have to be shown to the KJV...
Seriously. Every store in our area does not have toiletpaper. As well as papwr towels. I can see papertowels, but, TP . This flu does not attack our digestive tract, it is URI, specifically.
So, let's get some ideas floating as to why the craze for toiletpaper. Winning response, or best explanation wins one new, unwrapped roll of toiletpaper. Not a pachage of TP, but one roll, which seems to be more valuable than gold.
Any thoughts are welcome. Agape my bros and sisters.
