What’s the Big Deal About the KJV? {episode 4}: dumbed-down version.

Somewhere between episode 3 of “What’s The Big Deal About The KJV?” and this episode 4, I got caught up inthe busy-ness of my jam-packed life and didn’t realize the latest episode had come out! My apologies for not being more on the ball with this.

What’s the Big Deal About the KJV? {episode 2}: mass confusion.

If you missed episode 1 of “What’s the Big Deal About the KJV?,” click HERE to watch it.

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.

What’s the Big Deal About the KJV? {episode 1}: it’s just coffee.

Those of you who have followed me for any amount of time know by now that I am a KJV-Only IFB. I have written a few posts on the KJV in the past (see below for a list), and I’ve engaged in many debates in defense of the KJV as well (in person, email, comments on this blog, and on facebook). I also hosted Dr. Sam Gipp’s book titled “The Answer Book” on a weekly basis for a few months (although we did not get through the entire book).

Recently, Dr. Sam Gipp has produced a few short videos in defense of the KJV. I think they’re VERY well done videos in which he is very gracious in how he explains his beliefs to other people. I was so impressed with the videos, I’ve decided to host them here on the blog. *and the crowd cheers* (don’t even try to deny it.)  :]

Proverbs 31: virtue vs. valour.

I’m a little confused, but maybe you all can help me. or at least give it your best shot…

Below are all the same verse, just worded differently. Proverbs 31:10

“Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.” (KJV)

“Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies.” (NLT)

“A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.” (NIV)

The Answer: translated for who?

The Answer:  The common man.

The Explanation:
There is so much made of the perfection, or supposed imperfection, of the Bible that one element in the equation is often overlooked. That is, the reason for having a perfect Bible in the first place, the common man. If there was no common man, there would be no need for a Bible in the common language.

Question of the day: translated for who?

Continuing on in the series of questions put forth by Dr. Sam Gipp in His book “The Answer Book.”* 

Several people have asked me why I continue to post questions from Dr. Gipp’s book when I myself claim to not agree with him completely. The short and sweet of it is this: I am grasping at every second I have these days. I work full time (plus some), go to school full time (plus some), work several church ministries, and have a bunch of other projects going on – in addition to this blog. Hence, by posting these questions/answers two days a week, it helps me free up a little bit of time… which, in the end, helps keep my sanity in tact.  :]  See… it’s a win/win situation.

As I said before, the point of these questions is not to start a Baptist War, but rather encourage everyone to engage in a discussion and learn from and among fellow believers. I believe everyone’s doing a good job at sticking to the purpose.

The Answer: today’s scholars better equipped?

The Answer:  No.

The Explanation:

The answer to the question is “No” for two reasons.

First is that, the scholarship of the men who translated the King James Bible is literally unsurpassable by today’s scholars. Two books available best illustrate this and should be read by anyone who wants to seriously study the subject. They are Translators Revived, by Alexander McClure, Maranatha Publications, and The Men Behind the King James Version, by Gustavus Paine, Baker Book House.

Question of the day: today’s scholars better equipped?

Today is week 15 in the series of questions put forth by Dr. Sam Gipp in His book “The Answer Book.”* I feel like these questions have been beneficial for people on both sides of the fence:  you share your thoughts, others share their thoughts – everyone learns something in between.

As I said before, the point of these questions is not to start a Baptist War, but rather encourage everyone to engage in a discussion and learn from and among fellow believers. I believe everyone’s doing a good job at sticking to the purpose.

The Answer: A.V. translators & inspiration.

The Answer:  No. But Biblically that does not mean that they could not have been inspired.

The Explanation:

The men on the translation committee of the King James Bible were, without dispute, the most learned men of their day and vastly qualified for the job which they undertook. They were overall both academically qualified by their cumulative knowledge and spiritually qualified by their exemplary lives.
