    I nominate for "Most interesting or informative"
    topic in the Bible Versions/Translation Forum
    the topic: Is your Bible Inerrant? [​IMG]

    This topic shows the views of over 50
    Baptist Boarders and can be perused at:


    The most popular (42%) is:
    3 The Bible is inerrant in the original autographs

    Which i personally find strange, seeing as how the
    original autographs are not available for inspection.
    But what is good for the goat ain't necessarily good for
    the sheep.

    I find it hard to believe that 3 people (aledged Baptists)
    don't even believe in any form of inerrancy for the Bible ??

    I don't even believe that 4 people believe this:
    5 The Bible is inerrant only in the KJV 1611 (exclusive of translator notes)

    I've been kicked off a King James Bible Only-ist (KJBO) site
    for quoting the actual KJV1611. Most KJBO's use
    the KJV1769, of course, without those pesky translator notes.
    I've searched (using Google recently, older search engines
    eariler) dozens of sites containing the "KJV 1611" term
    and none of them have any verse from the KJV1611 but usually
    from the KJV1769.

    The second most popular position with 13% of the vote is:
    10 The Bible is inerrant in all English translations
    Oh, that is my selection [​IMG]

    I applaud the group for not falling for my two
    "the Bible is inerrent as implemented". For the message
    is inspired, not what we do with the message.
