it has been scientifically proven to be the easiest version to UNDERSTAND
No, it hasn't. Citations or it never happened.

I submit that the KJV is what is behind the homosexual agenda, so rampant in today's world. How else can you explain it?
The "begs the question" question comes up, though. If all the other translations before the KJV were flawed, and the KJV used them as sources, the question WHAT THE FUCK? comes to mind.

The version that was created and edited specifically to push a political agenda is the most accurate? And proven scentifically to be the easiest to understand?which study concluded thus, and what were it's parameters?

Also, it contains 50% more fiction than other leading holy books.

"The English launguage was at its best at this time in history"
I pray, we shouldst pillory this wench for corrupting the humors by writing in this strange and different modern speeche!

Though the may have not all been straight doctrinally they were some of the holiest and God-fearing men.
How the hell do you know? Nobody knows for sure exactly who translated the KJV, so how can you say they were holy?
The fact is that most fundamentalists insist on people reading the KJV so that their fellow Christians won't understand what they're reading. This helps the fundies claim that certain passages don't really mean what they appear to mean, but instead mean something completely different. You're just misunderstanding it. And of course they'll tell you what different passages mean and why.

I find your reasoning quite hilarious.

Would it have been too much for an omnipotent and omnibenevolent God to make sure that each language has only one version of the Bible? You'd almost think that God either doesn't exist or doesn't care what we believe.

"The English launguage was at its best at this time in history."
Which is why you try your best to maim and strangle every English word and phrase you come across.
1/3/2011 7:13:47 AM
actually, the phrase is "The proof of the pudding is in the eating" - and no matter which version you use, your holy bibble still tastes like shit.

"(Whatever may be said about King James, whether true or false, he DID NOT TRANSLATE the KJV)."
Huh! I'm surprised you realize that. As they say, retarded clock is still right twice a day.

King James was gay.
Now you know.

"The KJV is the only version that claims preservation and has supporters who claim it is pure and without error. You will not find this with any other English version that I know off."
Uh...And who gets to make this claim? Well, who gets to make this claim without a very obvious bias? I'm sure the readers of the NIV or whatever, read that because they think it is pure and without error, otherwise they wouldn't really bother now, would they?

"...The KJV has produced more fruit than all the other versions combined. ..."
And a lot of nuts, as well.

the men behind the translation- they may not all have been straight... and they were very, very intelligent!

"Many of your new versions were had unsaved reprobates and perverts TRANSLATING the bible. (Whatever may be said about King James, whether true or false, he DID NOT TRANSLATE the KJV)."
But he did
authorise it's creation - and made changes as & when he wanted. Oh, and proof that your Bible is
Methinks the lady doth protest too much.
You fundies today project so much, you could make the IMAX format obsolete.
1/3/2011 8:08:03 AM
Yeah 'cause we all know that the hebrew people back in Abramic times spoke perfect English.
1/3/2011 8:10:45 AM
I'm sure the readers of the NIV or whatever, read that because they think it is pure and without error, otherwise they wouldn't really bother now, would they?
Or that they think it has the fewest errors. Or that they actually understand it better than the KJV or other translations. Let’s not set up a false dichotomy here.

The KJV was translated at the same time Shakespeare was writing his plays. I've never heard anyone claim Elizabethan English was easy for modern people to understand.

I'm so thankful that no-one in Sweden today says we should use the Bible of King Gustav Vasa from 1540. It's barely readable; if I didn't recognize the Bible verses, I would probably not understand it at all. There's nothing clear or to the point about the Swedish "launguage" used for that Bible version, whatsoever.
Anyone who claims any text is pure and without error, is delusional.

What the fuck would an American know about the King's English. They don't speak anything even remotely close to it.
As to the Bible, I'll go with the scholarly opinion that the KJV is by far the least accurate of all Scriptural translations. Thank you.
