    In this thread:

    http://www.baptistboard.com/showpost.php?p=1732474&postcount=14

    the moderator said the thread with this title would stand if the OP pointed out the differences between "formal -vs- dynamic equivalency", so....

    I ask some of you scripture scholars to educate the rest of us on these two methodologies and why (in your educated opinion) the KJV translators relied heavier on the literal side, than modern translations. An examination of how this causes problems with certain passages would be helpful.

    Thanks,

    WM

    I prefer the King James to any other translation, version or perversion of the Bible.

    Saying the bible stinks, regardless of which translation you are referring to, is not only anti-Christ, it is a good way to get kicked off this forum.

    Apparently not. It's OK to say as long as you are talking about translational differences. :BangHead:
