    2 Kings 18:4 This verse reminds me of the veneration, worship of the kjv.Just like the brass serpent served its purpose and then became an object of worship, it seems like some have followed this pattern and exalted the kjv higher than the translators, or even God Himself nowhere, zero, zilch, nada claimed. :eek: Many reject the NASB, NIV, ESV, NKJV, and seem to worship the kj version as much as, if not more than King Jesus. Is there now a Quadnity? God the Father, God the Son, God the Spirit, and "god the kjv"? :rolleyes:

    Orvie, interesting parallel. BTW, it's improper to not capitalize "KJV" are you doing this because Will doesn't capitalize MV's such as NKJV, NASV, ESV, NIV, etc? he's wrong too.

    I've been a KJV believer since I was a kid. I got saved in 1958 and have known thousands of KJV believers in the intervening years.

    I've never met a KJV believer who worshipped the KJV.

    Accusing KJV believers of 'worshipping the KJV' is just a lazy form of argument that non-KJV believers use.

    If you check out what the Monarch of the Books says, you will notice that believers in the Bible were absolutists too.

    King David - "Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way." - Psalm 119:128

    Paul the Apostle - "But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets." - Acts 24:14

    Nope, Will is right to give reverence where reverence is due, and not otherwise ;)

    Shame on you, QS, for such a cavalier and flippant remark. Trust that is not another example of Nehushtan.

    BTW, on this forum I have met many who hold the AV1611 or whatever revision up to "god-like" standards. NONE would say they are bibliolaters, but their words belie the disclaimer.

    It makes you wonder sometimes if their operative theology is really:

    "For God so loved the world, that he gave THE KJV, that whosoever believeth in IT should not perish, but have everlasting life."

    something like this?

    http://www.fortunecity.com/meltingpot/alexandra/849/nehushtan.htm

    Kingdom Judah went a-whoring,
    Trusting in a brazen snake.
    Fid-e-isti-cally mooring
    Faith upon itself as stake.

    Chorus
    Filthy Nehushtan
    Filthy Nehushtan
    Fid-e-isti-cal Low Tar
    Creepin' Nehushtan
    Creepin' Nehushtan
    Marijuana que fumar!

    We praise the name of the Lord (Psa 138:2), we sing to his name (Psa 66:4), we glorify it (Psa 86:9) and glory in it (Psa 105:3), we call on it (Psa 99:6), we bless it (Psa 103:1), we give thanks to it (Psa 106:47), we trust in it (Isa 50:10), we exalt it (Psa 34:3), we fear it (Psa 86:11).

    Yet many KJV-onlyists here have pointed out that (based on a faulty interpretation) God "hast magnified thy word above all thy name" - i.e. the KJV is higher than even the name of the Lord.

    Dr. Ruckman attributes supernatural power to the KJV when he says it corrects its sources. Kowabunga, dudes! That's SOME trick! Not even Houdini could've pulled THAT one off!

    If a KJVO insists that the KJV is the "thy word" in the above scripture, wouldn't that be the same as worshiping the KJV.
    It is false worship to put anything above God.

    If this is so, I've met many KJVO (even on this board) that is guilty of worshiping a version.

    hey, extreme KJVO are not that different from RCCs
    .

    Extreme KJVO worship a VERSION

    RCC worship a VIRGIN.

    Sorry bad joke.

    It's OK to give the KJV dulia, just not latria, eh? [​IMG]
