roby3 said:Ever wonder where KJVO-the false doctrine that the KJV is the only valid English Bible translation out there came from? Here's the skinny:
In 1930, a 7th Day Adventist official, Dr. Benjamin Wilkinson(1872-1968), published a book he named "Our Authorized Bible Vindicated" in response to a squabble within the SDA cult. This book is a collection of snippets in favor of the KJV of God's holy word, and is full of goofs, such as the "Psalm 12:6-7 thingie". Apparently, Wilkinson didn't bother to check 0ut the VERACITY of any of the info he gathered. And he copied PARTS of Dean John Burgon's writings, omitting anything that was critical of the Textus Receptus.
He obtained a Scottish copyright for this book, which he apparently allowed to lapse many years ago, as interest in his book was mostly limited to the SDA cult, and for only a short time.
roby3 said:Do you not know the ORIGIN of the current edition of the KJVO myth? It's derived from a 1930 book, Our Authorized Bible Vindicated by Dr. Benjamin Wilkinson, a 7TH DAY ADVENTIST preacher/teacher/official.That same man also rated the writings of Ellen Gould White on a par with Scripture. His book was heavily plagiarized by two later dishonest authors who used modern media to hawk their wares & spread the KJVO lie. GOD DOES NOT WORK THAT WAY!
Thus, the ONLY justification you have for KJVO is personal preference. Otherwise, you cannot legitimately support it.

Born 1872 England
Occupation Seventh-day Adventist Theologian
Once you believe you have the inerrant word of God in your hands, where you have EVERY word of God you are commanded to live by, the Bible-Correcting-Crowd will attack with falsehood to discredit it. they do this because to them, NOTHING is pure. It's like they have vowed they will not receive with meekness the engrafted inerrant word which is able to save their souls neither will they allow others to receive it with meekness:
But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. - Mat 23:13
Ever before Benjamin G. Wilkinson was born in 1872, people have these to say:
1787 - "It is true, indeed, that some very devout and well-meaning people carry the prejudice too far, when they profess to believe, that our translation was written with the finger of the Almighty, and that to alter a title of it is to be guilty of blasphemy. But still, as the faith of such persons is strong, and their intentions pious,..." - Essays, Moral and Literary, Vol 1 1783
1822 - "When an English Protestant gets possession of an English Bible, printed by Thomas Basket, or other "printer of the kings most excellent majesty," he takes it in hand with the same confidence, as if he had immediately received it from the Almighty Himself, as Moses received the tables of the law on Mount Sinai, amidst thunder and lightning." - The End of Religious Controversy. By John Milner 1822
1828 - "So ill taught are many Christians that they cannot think that any translation of the scripture deserves that title of the Word of God except that of the King James. The translators of the King's version did not themselves think so, as we have shown most conclusively by publishing their own preface- on which preface we have some remarks to make, at a more convenient time. If King James' version is the ONLY Word of God on earth, then all nations who speak any other language than the English, have no Revelation. I would thank some of those ignorant declaimers to tell us where the Word of God was before the reign of king James!" - (The Christian Baptist, Vols 5-6 1828 Edited by Alexander Campbell)
1830 - "Yet, at the same time," says the Christian Observer, "does not every divine, even those who would not strongly object to the latter part of Mr. Wilson's statements; nay, does not the most uninstructed person who thinks the very words of king james's translation, the original diction of the Holy Spirit, familiarly speak of the respective styles of St. Paul or St. John; of the sublimity of Isaiah, or the pathos of Jeremiah;...?" - (The Inspiration of the Scriptures. 1830)
From the above quotes, the phrases “So ill taught..” , “The most uninstructed..” They are referring to the common people. Isn’t it amazing that it is the common people that heard Him gladly and not the unbelieving scholars?:
David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly. – Mar 12:37 KJB
The Bible-Correcting-Crowd are good at regurgitating falsehood passed down to them by their unbelieving scholars. God promised to preserve His words and those that believed they have His inerrant word in their hands they mockingly call them "KJV-Only" not knowing they themselves are bearing a true witness to God's promise, a witness that is also against them. When the disciples were first called Christians, at that time, there were probably some pagans (Followers of many gods) mockingly calling believers of Jesus Christ "Christians" (Followers of Jesus). Yes, they follow Jesus Christ ONLY. Can a pagan who mockingly call believers of Jesus Christ "Christians" ever deny not hearing the gospels?
I see you have been posting this topic over and over for years. I would like to ask you a question. Your "great grand scholars" searched for the autographs with no avail. Lets say today they got lucky and found them, would you stick ONLY to the autographs?
The Bible-Correcting-Crowd are like the woman in the Bible that overlaid her son (the autographs) and then kidnapped a living son (the quick). Appearing before the king, the only quick we have in our hands they say to the king, Let it be neither ours nor theirs, but divide it. But the king was a wise man, he did not divide it and since then they approach and see it as a dead book, dead letter. But believers knows that the word of God is quick! To them, nothing can be like the one the woman overlaid. Since they cannot find it, every other thing must have errors. When they say all Bible translation have errors, you know where they are coming from. Hypocrites, they are autographs-only!
When you find the Book of the LORD, the engrafted word and you receive it with meekness, the adversary and his cohorts will come up with anything to discredit it for they know it can save your soul.
