@Van on another forum thread states:
The KJV is deeply flawed and to deny this basic truth is to engage in disinformation. Full Stop …(rest of post clipped because it is not pertaining to the thread topic)
(bold my add)
This thread is to tease out the “deeply flawed” areas of the KJV.
In my opinion, the KJV is a translation that is as solid as any other.
One may certainly find more recently explored manuscripts that might suggest a minor rendering adjustment, but in my own work, the KJV...
Rom 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
Rom 3:11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
Rom 3:12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
Rom 3:13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:
Rom 3:14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:
Rom 3:15 Their feet are swift...
Have any of you switched over to another translation as your primary Bible version in the last year or so?
Obviously, those who regard the KJV as the only trustworthy translation are not likely to move on until there's an awakening. However, I would say that the second most resistant group to change over would be the ESVers.
I think that I use more of a variety of translations than the average Joe. I have a bunch of physical copies and I go to BibleGateway as well. No one version does the...
Obviously this is a unique passage of scripture; the only one that describes the immediate fate of the dead. Many Christians do not believe it is literal, but they can't give a satisfactory answer as to why Jesus would tell of such a horrible fate for the unrepentant if it is not true as he said. And I can't see any other reason but to install a great fear. But would Jesus install a great fear of something that happens to no one? Maybe you have an attic ladder and can tell your children if...
Here's something that's bothered me: How can a professional athlete participate in a sport on Sundays and claim to be obedient to God's Word when Hebrews 10:25-26 commands a Christian to not forsake the assembling of ourselves together?
I'm not saying that a person who willingly does so is not saved, but how can he/she willingly forsake attending his/her local church on Sundays?
I know I've started a lot of threads so far. Sorry.
Lately, I haven't been reading the Bible because I've been finding it difficult to concentrate and to understand many passages. Even though the KJV is my favorite translation, and even though I understand early modern English, the phrasing is often hard for me to interpret. Many times it's because the thoughts are expressed in a sophisticated way, but often it's simply because I can't concentrate, unable to comprehend simple phrases like...
One of the most controversial verses in scripture is 1 Corinthians 11:3. Here is a traditional translation by the NASB95:
1 Corinthians 11:3 " But I want you to understand that [fn]Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of [fn]Christ."
The footnotes indicate "Christ" refers to "the Messiah" (thus God incarnate).
I am certainly not suggesting that the above choice, which is reflected in every translation I looked at, is wrong. But, in...
According to the scriptures, upon one’s faith in Christ and the gospel, a person is justified, escaping eternal condemnation, and receiving eternal life. Although the claim by some is, that a person, once being justified, is then necessarily increasingly sanctified, resulting in their sin being lessened over time, I, having heard sermons, and read commentaries, believe contrary to this view, though the first three gospels, the general epistles, and the Book of Revelation seem to support it,...
