    I think the dumbest KJVO argument is the copyright argument but this would have to come in second many KJVO that say MV's are wrong for changing Saviour in KJV to Savior in MV's. I even know a couple that say your not using a "real" KJV if it's spelled Savior with just 6 letters. They always point out what number is 6 it's the anti-christ's number. What number is 7 it's the number of perfection in the Bible. This is stupidity IMO the reason the KJV spelled Saviour with 7 letters is because thats how they spelled it in 1611. It's sad some KJVO's use this argument. I think you see how wrong they truely are and you get to see the pathetic arguments they use. [​IMG]

    The 1850 revision spells Savior with 6 letters.

    I'm not sure if this is off topic or not but here goes anyway. The Cute Purple Dinosaur

    I think (and I'm sure that ALL my KJVO friends would agree) that this "Barney issue" is the third most important reason we are KJVO (right behind the copyright issue and the ever important holy spelling of "saviour".)

    I'm a little slow Bro Lacy,

    Are you pointing out the error of contending over the spelling of Saviour?

    Using Saviour instead of Savior is only right and proper in a KJB, showing that it was originally a British translation instead of an American one.

    (motherly scolding mode activated)
    Naughty KJVO's ignoring a crown copyright and being proud of that fact and praising the king that originated that copyright at the same time. ;)

    Personally I think that the worldrecord in number of stupid explanations for an obscure Bibletext is held by the 666 reference in the Book of Revelations.

    I always use Saviour when typing, because it distinguishes the Bible from other books. Do you have too, no you don't, it's just my preference.

    What DeclareHim posted is good stuff though, that's how you can tell a KJB from the modern versions, just like in 1850 that spelled it savior, it's not a real KJB.

    S.Luke I:47 (KJV1611):

    And my spirit hath reioyced in
    God my sauiour.

    Is this book "real KJB"?

    667 minus 1 = 666.

    665 + 1 = 666.

    333 X 2 = 666.

    28638 divided by 43 = 666.

    This proves math is the antichrist.

    Saviour is British behaviour towards spelling.

    Another amazing fact: Ben Franklin flew a kite in the midst of a thunderstorm, thereby proving the existence of wind.

    I guess I was just being silly. It was late. It would be hard for me to defend the 1611/1769 "differences", then turn around and condemn versions with the "wrong" spelling. In this case, both spellings are right. If a KJVO makes it an issue, I think it would be a waste of time.

    I agree, Lacy. The British use the ending "our" for many words that Americans end in "or", I.E."labour". I believe both saviour and savoir are correct. Far as I know, the British use the spelling "saviour" whether it refers to Jesus or not. Perhaps C4K can clarify.

    And I believe that any argument over the spelling is blarney. The KJV was made in England while most MVs were made in the USA. Naturally, they're gonna spell certain words differently in the respective versions.

    I have never seen a KJVO who claimed "perfection" for the AV1611 spell the Lord's name with an "I":

    IEHOVAH or IESUS.

    I've read KJVOist who do use this as a twisted defense for the KJV. I fully agree with Lacy that this is a waste of time!

    The whole "this and that plus/minus that equals 666" is another example of using anything and everything to make a point. LOL, seems ol G."god and" Riplinger might be behind this one! [​IMG]

    Anyway, I'm glad to see the voice of reason on the BB in regards to this word spelling game!

    "Saviour is British behaviour towards spelling."

    In case anyone thinks this Savior/Saviour thing is too wacky to believe, I present the following:

    That was a fine piece of reading. I almost came to tears and burst into a 14 minute rendition of "Could This be the Stone?"

    Now my head hurts.

    Are you surprised that there is not one article, not one book offered, or not one mention anywhere on this site of Peter Ruckman? You just go around assuming all KJVO people are "Ruckmandroids?"

    In your quest to disparage, you've brought into the light your own lack of discernment and willful ignorance.
