King James Error

>>In Caps, Inject your rebutle into this text Ie. Modern Bibles: WHAT IS MEANT BY MODERN etc. Thanks: JJ Your servant<<

The problem I have with this idea JJ is that I take the next five days carefully working through this email book you posted and at the end my questions are still unanswered. Then I post my comments back, its regarded as 'rubbish' of course, and deleted.

But I say this, KJ radicals make one common mistake. They constantly imagine doctrine is determined by comparing translations. It's NOT! Doctrine is not formulated by comparing translations or the rendering in one verse. There are thousands of verses one can quote to prove anything! eg. KJV Psa 146:3 "Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help." If I did not tell you this came from the KJV Scott Jones would put it in his long list of translation differences. Only a KJ radical would interpret this verse as an attack on Christ and sincerely believe it. The NIV says, "the Son of Man came to seek and to save" so I might regard the KJV as Satanic. There are numerous similar examples that could be given.

However thank you for the paper by Scott Jones [or was it Bob Jones?] I read and found it interesting but typical. Of course you could have injected your rebuttal into my original email instead of just posting someone else's book. And what is meant by modern? There was a time when the KJV, RSV, Vulgate, Luther's, NIV, etc were all considered 'modern'.
