    Have we ever had a look at the liniage of the 1611 KJVO IFB Baptist Churches? They teach that the Bible was inspired to a perfect copy of the word by the founders of the Episcopal Church. Wouldent it neccesarraly follow then the Episcopal Church be the liniage of the IFB KJVO movement?

    In fact they could then actually be the only Bapist church to have Apostolic Succession in the High IFB Church?

    This thread has been re-opened, but this forum will not be a place to discuss Bible versions; there already is a forum for that discussion. Thank you.

    Ben:

    As rsr said, there`s a forum for Bible versions; but you have my curiosity up about the movement you refer to.

    What we are looking at is a reducto absurdum argument, taking something to its logical extreme.

    "They teach that the Bible was inspired to a perfect copy of the word by the founders of the Episcopal Church."

    This is patently false.

    In His service;

    While the Church of England translators of the KJV may not have been the first members of the Church of England, are you sure that they did not have an important role in the establishment of this church's doctrine?

    THE OXFORD ILLUSTRATED ENCYCLOPEDIA stated that Lancelot Andrewes [a KJV translator] "played an important part in developing the theology of the Anglican Church" (Vol. 3, p. 12). THE CAMBRIDGE GUIDE TO ENGLISH LITERATURE noted that Andrewes "was one of the shaping influences in Anglican theology" (p. 22).
