    The truth is tha t the Critical text though hs just as nuch support for being the "real/righ" Greek text as those othter 2, and that the choice as to which one isto be shown as being superior pretty much falls under a preference, as good and valid points can be made for both texts that you prefer, and the one that I do...

    Andthose holding to KJVO/TR superority do indeed see theAlexandrian text as somehow being corrupted by some kind of evil monks ad literally found in trsh bins!

    Never mind. You don't seem to understand the difference between a manuscript, a text, and a textform (or texttype as some call it).

    I have never claimed it wasn't. I didn't even mention it. It is you who brought it up. Not me. You see, I know what it is. You apparently don't. You do know where and when it originated, right?

    Local Church Bible Publishers is not Church Bible Publishers.

    Having said that.... the Turquoise bible is available only in calf skin.
    My only complaint is that it is skimpy on the gutters. Other than that, it is a reprint of the Cambridge Turquoise reference Bible. It is worth having.

    I tried that and it was rejected just like the NIV and frowned upon. The solution was to find a new church.

    God sees nothing wrong with using a different version than Kjv, but those in that Church really will! If want to use a different version, need to go to another church!

    Reminds me ofthe time was asked to show up to celebrate a Church conversion of school to their church, was told to take KJV only in, and before pastor spoke, local Police Chief read the OT passage where Solomon dedicated the temple, but read it in th Niv! The Pastor and staff lookd like they were getting real sick and needed a bucket!

    I don't think choosing a version as the main or only standard to go by is anything like worshiping that version.

    That is just silly.

    Having a standard just makes sense.

    "A ship without an anchor wanders everywhere - so one does, who lacks a 'foundation' for building faith in the accuracy of the English word of God." (me. :D)

    If we lack understanding, we lack it all.
