  1. So Gipp’s reasoning for why the KJV is the [re]inspired Word of God is because there are miracles in the Bible. And the re-inspiration of God’s word in 1611 is a miracle, but none of the other versions can be miracles, because…?

    So no one had the preserved Word of God before 1611?

    So God isn’t powerful enough to preserve His Word in multiple languages and translations?

    So everyone who doesn’t read English is just “up the creek?”

    KJVOnlyism puts God in a box and demands that He needs to play by the rules that man has set up.

  2. I’m going to caveat this comment by acknowledging that I am less familiar with the KJV than I am with more modern translations. However, considering the claim that it is the perfect word of god, my comment should still be applicable.

    How do Christians rationalize the moral misgivings of the Bible?

    For example, slavery is never declared wrong in the Bible. What about misogyny? What about the murder overseen by God in the OT?

    In the video, Dr. Gipp decries people who continue asking questions. It is precisely that mentality (the anti-intellectualism bred by religion) that will not allow me to accept it. Because ultimately that is the charge: accept the ideas, even if our answers are grossly insufficient.

    It really amazes me, considering the contents of the Bible, that one of the primary arguments for the existence of god is one of moral direction and revelation.
