I wanted to provide you with a few other resources to read at your convenience. I really do think this issue is big and I want to be faithful in defending why I believe what I believe. I just don’t have the time, the skills, or the knowledge to write it all out for you myself. That is why I’m taking advantage of all the other great people out there that have taken their time and devoted it to this subject matter.

  1. Heather I checked out some of the issues mentioned. Luke 23:33 for instance in which the word Calvary only appears in KJV. It is my understanding that the word Calvary is derived from the Latin (calvaria) for the Greek word used in Luke meaning cranium or skull. That would explain the use of the word Calvary only in the KJV, which came into being when Latin was the language of the church. In respect of the missing verse in Matthew most translations make mention of the verse stating why it has been omitted, and I have seen one explanation that says that Matthew 17:21 is omitted because it did not appear in the older manuscripts. Doesn’t that contradict some of what was said about manuscripts in yesterday’s video?

  2. Enjoyed this Ms. Heather

  3. “People that tend to defend their version, even if they see a mistake in it, it’s based more on pride than a love for the Bible.” Oh, the irony…

    I have a hard time taking anything by Sam Gipp seriously after reading some of subversive logical gymnastics he went through in The Answer Book. For me, that book really destroyed his credibility.

    Many of his arguments are based off logical fallacies like the false premise that the Bible can only exist in one [English] version,”it can’t be in an hundred, two hundred versions, it’s got to be in one.” … and this is true, why?

    Ultimately, it appears that the “big deal” about the KJV is that believing that it’s the [re]inspired Word of God removes the ability to have to think and work through the fluidity and oftentimes confusing evolution of languages. Even the 1729 KJV adjusted for some translation errors in the 1611 KJV that the KJVOnlyists seem to conveniently forget about. Also, *if* the 1611 KJV is really the [re]inspired Word of God, why does everyone use the 1729? Simple: it’s easier to read and some of the translation errors have been fixed. For some, KJVOnlyism really seems to be a religion unto itself.

  4. Did anyone watch the 22-minute clip in the comments section yesterday? It pretty soundly refuted many of Gipp’s strongest claims.
