KJV Only-ism Comments - 2003

Below are assorted e-mails I received in 2002 commenting on the items listed under "KJV Only-ism" at Bible Versions Controversy and the section on this subject in my Differences Between Bible Versions book. The e-mailers’ comments are in black and enclosed in "greater than" and "lesser than" signs. My comments are in red.


>Subject: Very good job!

Comments:

I thought the articles featured on your website were extremely well-researched and substantial, from the best sources you could ever find on the topic: PEOPLE WHO BOTHERED TO SEARCH THE MATTER OUT FOR THEMSELVES!

One of the things that never ceases to amaze me is how narrow the KJV-Onlyist view of history is. I read older German Bibles (Luther 1545 and Zürcher 1531), and so, I tend to approach the Onlyism debate from the other side of the timeline (pre-1611). I have found that Onlyists seem to have their arguments pretty well prepared against newer versions, but very few seem to have really considered Bibles predating 1611. Those that make an effort to "defend" (their term, but it's more like "assert") the KJV against Bibles based on largely the same source texts can't seem to come up with anything really substantial to support their position. But the reasons for that have already been well covered in your articles.

Again, excellent work!
