    KJO fear?
    What is the great fear of the avid KJVO:

    I copied the following paragrah from here:


    They say they got it from here (I haven't checked that):

    The New King James Bible Examined

    By M. H. Reynolds
    Fundamental Evangelistic Association
    Box 6278 Los Osos CA 93412 USA

    Will the next modem Bible be the "Do It Yourself" version?
    This would be a distinct possibility if the advice of
    the NKJV editors in the two preceding paragraphs were
    to be followed. In effect, they are saying, let each reader
    decide for himself what portions, verses, phrases
    and words should be included in God's Holy Word.
    NKJV footnotes, far from being helpful, are an invitation
    to disobey the plain command of God not to add
    to or take from His Word. Deuteronomy 4:2; Revelation 22:18,19.

    So it seems to me the fear of many KJVOs would be
    that people will read the footnotes of their Bible and
    Uh, wasn't that the problem that the Roman Catholics
    had just before the Reformation? The RCC /Roman
    Catholic Church/ wouldn't let their people read the
    the Bible, just the clergy. To help do this, the RCC
    only used a dead language to 'preserve' their
    distorted 'Word of God'.

    BTW isn't it a Baptist destictive that each competent soul is
    responsible before God for God's message to that
    individual? Can't such a competent soul, filled with the
    Holy Spirit, determine what is, and what is not, the
    Written Word of God?

    Ed, I believe that if I were a follower of the KJVO myth my biggest fear would be that I would be "put on the spot" to defend this man-made myth. The followers of the KJVO myth have been asked time and time again to defend their belief, yet not one of them can come up with anything that is based in truth. All they do is spin, avoid the question and make false accusations that "freedom readers" don't believe God's word. In truth, it is the KJVO myth believers who add to the word of God by adding in their man-made "doctrine."

    I was thinking about this today...
    Over the past week I have read comments on here about how Baptists just do things the way they feel is right.

    As Baptists we believe that God illuminates scripture to us.
    I'm not for sure if this fear is just from KJVOs, but from all that feel their views on scripture are being challenged.

    It is a sign of immaturity to always say... "I'm right, and if you don't agree with me, you are not as spiritual as me"

    I have learned a lot after I thought I knew it all!!!

    Great words Tim.

    Sorry Ed, we are not going to do a specific KJVO thread. We deal with translations here, not movements.
