    Hi there!

    I have heard some KJVOs say: The KJV was good enough for Paul, so it is good enough for me! Well, I think no one really believes that Paul used a KJV but this statement indicates that there are certain arguments that the text Paul was using is similar to the KJV-text (Old Testament). But I also heard other Christians say that Paul quoted only from the LXX. What is true? Can somebody give me some information? :confused:

    The KJV was not good enough for Paul. He did not quote it. He quoted most likely teh LXX but we cannot be sure. What we can be sure of is that it was not the KJV. The page referenced by Homebound is a humorous attempt to spin a insurmountable problem for their position.

    There is no such thing as the LXX.Read Gipps book
    "The answer book" and find the truth.
    biblebelievers.com is the place for truth.

    Ah, so I can either believe *you* that only the KJV is the word of God and that the LXX doesn't exist, or I can believe the KJV translators that say the LXX exists and is even the word of God. Hmmmm... let me think...... how to choose, how to choose......

    A book in the NT that relies heavily on the LXX is Hebrews. Almost all of its quotes are exact wording from the LXX and different from the Hebrew (in places).

    By the way, if you think Hebrews qoutes from the Herbew text (or the KJV OT in your case) please do find them in the OT in the wording giving in Hebrews. That will be a fun little job.

    There is no such thing as the LXX. It was a lie from the beginning and still is.

    Where did I contradict myself?

    The KJV is the word of God. The very meanest translation of the Bible in English containeth the word of God, nay, is the word of God. And so is the LXX. [​IMG]

    What version Paul used is irrelevant to the fact that the KJV does not prefectly translate the Greek and Hebrew to English. No version does.

    Gipp . . . Isn't he the guy who claims that Westcott and Hort were closet Catholics by dishonestly quoting a letter of Westcott which, when read in full, says exactly the opposite?

    Please don't use the words "Gipp" and "truth" in the same sentence, as it makes my head hurt.

    That is not true or possible Brian because the LXX was a lie from the beginning and in reality does not exist.

    So it's kind of like a perfect KJV in that regard.

    Are you saying that reality depends on what I believe about it?

    Are you some kind of postmodernist fruitcake?

    Truth is the KJV. Reality is that the KJV is the word of God.
