    To me, 'unscriptural' means 'AGAINST Scripture', while 'nonscriptural' means 'not found in scripture'.

    The belief that God's word is found in only one Bible version is NONscriptural, not AGAINST Scripture. However, such a belief is incorrect for the simple reason that it's ABOUT Scripture, but NOT SUPPORTED by Scripture. Trying to shoehorn such a doctrine into the pantheon of Christian doctrines found in Scripture or derived by clear implication from Scripture is placing that doctrine ABOVE Scripture.

    I agree with Robycop3. I like ascriptual as well,

    It is like Sunday School. SS is not unscriptual, but is nonscriptural or even ascriptual, as it is not mentioned.

    That is how I would define the term "ascriptural," there is nothing at all in the scriptures regarding translations or versions.

    Kind of like computers are ascriptural.

    Not a bad idea, Roger! Now, if people would accept it...

    All through Navy "A" school, and paramedic refresher courses in civilian life, we were taught that an abnormal heart rhythm was an "arrhythmia"(no rhythm at all) when the more-correct term is "DISrhythmia". However, most health professionals still use the former term today.

    And I say it's ascriptural, or non-Scriptural. Since it's a doctrine about Scripture that's NOT SUPPORTED by Scripture, the bottom line is that it cannot be true.

    I would like the see the Scripture(s) to support only using the KJV.

    Adding the "O" to the KJV is adding words in God's mouth that He never said. Adding the "O" to the NASB is adding words in God's mouth that He never said. The "O" is the problem!

    Actually, you have the joy of GUESSING, & not allowing your bubble to be burst with FACTS.

    NONE of this is SCRIPTURAL.
