    I can't participate. I don't agree with any of the answers for the last question.

    I would like to have taken the poll, but like MNJacob, the last question gives no acceptable option.

    Why participate in something that ONLY invites contention and the provoking to wrath?

    Except to reprove the evil device and rebuke the participants!

    Yes, Jesus is our peace and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us, so why do so many insist on providing the bricks and untempered mortar to build more walls?

    Care to honestly and Biblically answer that question? I dare you! ;)

    The only people who seem to be building walls are the people who put up polls meant to inflame and incite others. Seems like an honest answer to me. Are you calling God's Word an evil device??? I have God's Word right here in the form of the KJV, NKJV, NIV and NASB as well as others.

    To be honest I only started this poll to figure out how brother Ed makes those polls where you can look at the answers without participating.

    Oops.
    I'll ask if the 3rd question can be 'repaired' into something a bit more answerable.
    I do want to point out, that you don't have to personally agree with an answer for it to live up to the standard set by something else.

    It's called answering some thoughtprovoking questions.

    "so why do so many insist on providing the bricks and untempered mortar to build more walls?"
    ''
    Because they are Calvinists?
    Sadly enough, I suspect you have to be living overhere to appreciate that answer. [​IMG]

    Improving polls after they are finished is apparently basically impossible.
    So we all will have to be content with the answers I have provided. Sigh...

    No, God's Word, the KJV is not evil. Those other versions may, in fact, be evil in that they promote confusion and dissension among God's people.

    The anatomy of the poll.
    Questions.
    1. The Old Testament has to be translated from...
    2. The New Testament has to be translated from...
    3. The translators...

    All of the first answers support the ideas of very strong KJVO baptists.
    1. the KJV (any edition you like)
    2. the KJV (any edition you like)  
    3. must all be baptists
    3. must all be one version only-ists (they are doing the translation into a language that doesn't have a proper version yet)

    All of the last answers support a modern historians viewpoint
    1. start with an eclectic mix of earlier translations that have done rather well and compare it to the Masoretic text.
    2. start with an eclectic mix of earlier translations that have done rather well and compare it to the Majority Text (Beza/Stephanus/Scrivener whatever)
    3. must include proud members of the State church of the country where the translation is made.

    Other answers are for those going for a good 17th century standard of scholarship.
    1. the Masoretic text
    2. the Majority Text (Beza/Stephanus/Scrivener whatever)

    And that last one is more suited for translations living up to my own countries AV instead of the English language one.
    2. the true Textus Receptus (photographic reprint of the original Elsevier edition) 0% (0)

    Ed, don't contribute this post to me. I never stated this. It was Terry Herrington.

    Sorry, bad cutout of
    extra stuff.
    Here is the quote corrected. (Caveat: the
    quote is corrected ONLY to remove the
    name of "AVL1984". My corrections do not
    extend to ideas expressed by Terry Harrington
    nor spelling nor grammer.)
