A Book to trust #30 KJV-onlyism Conclusion

“KJV Onlyism” holds to the stance that the King James Version of the Bible is superior to all other English translations of the Bible and, therefore, the only version that should be used by individual Christians or Christian congregations. KVJ Onlyism also teaches that all other English translations are corrupt, hence the KJV is the only English Bible that can be trusted. Some KJV Onlyists even go so far at to teach that the King James Bible is without error and was divinely inspired. Some even teach that if there’s a conflict between what the original language manuscripts say and the KJV says you should choose the latter. Always we should consider the bible as the infallible and authoritative expression of God His Will for man and that He used His Power to protect His word so that it could and still can reach all people all over the world whatever Bible version in whatever language those pepole may use or read. In the previous articles we showed that the KJV Onlyism is fraught with a multiplicity of problems. We also should remember that God’s pure and unadulterated written revelation to mankind really can only found in the original handwritten manuscripts that were produced by either the biblical author or their scribes, known as the “autograph” manuscripts (or “autographa”) and not many of them have survived, but several have been fund after 1611. What is mostly left are imperfect copies (or, more likely, fragments of copies) that, thankfully, we have in such an abundance, that we have been able to reconstruct the autographa with a high degree of certainty. as such we should recognise those findings, even when many of them are from after the 17th century, should consider those reconstructed manuscripts as the closest thing we have to “God’s divinely inspired Word”. Therefore, a translation is only as authoritative as it accurately reflects those original language reconstructions and they are only as authoritative as they reflect the autographa.

A Book to trust #29 God His Book, God-breathed profitable for doctrine, for reproof and for correction

In this godless world we all should remember that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word going forth through the mouth of God Which He has provided for the whole world in many Bible translations. Nobody may forget that in whatever language the Bible is inspired by God and as such protected by God's Power so that it can be useful for every person on earth for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, in such a way that the person dedicated to God may be capable and equipped for every good work.

A Book to trust #28 A Collection of words showing and teaching us about the beginnings to the end

We have 66 books that have been collected which bring us words from many ordinary people, but also from special people chosen by God, prophets and Words of God Himself, who bring us the beginning and the end of the world. In the infallible Word of God, the Bible we also find the announcing formerly of several but also about the last things still to come, before their taking place, and are completed. Being able to see how in the past those prophesies came true we should come to see how all the counsel of God will stand, and all as much as He has planned He did and will do also for the future. The bible is the Book which offers the best doctrine and is the best source for getting the best instruction and for getting understanding and wisdom.

A Book to trust #27 Also words from ordinary and foolish men

Not many believers may considered wise or powerful according to human standards, or may not being 'well born' or from "blue blood". In the Scriptures may be found many words also from foolish men. Many wrong actions of men are notated in the bible so that people can learn from them. Those foolish things of the world God chose in order that He might put to shame the wise, and the weak things of the world God chose in order that He might put to shame the strong, and the insignificant of the world.

A Book to trust #26 Roadmap for life out of darkness

The Bible can be seen as a road map, a form of map that details roads to go to the entrance gates of the Kingdom of God and to to resolve the God-Man conflict and the conflicts between the human beings. That book of books brings us the Voice of God and the voice of the chosen men who like their Creator brings a call to come out the darkness. all those stories should give us an eagerness to learn and to teach others like in did in the ancient days.

A Book to trust #25 Perils of unbelief

When men let their faith and confidence in the credibility of the Word of God get away from them, there is danger of lowering their ethical standard. A tottering faith in the Bible narratives shall bring morality to be unstable and to stagger also. When there is a rejection of the integrity of the Old Testament narratives there shall be no vibration to come to see the truth of this life and the person shall move or sway unsteadily or unsure in this materialist world were more and more people are moving away from God and are having their egoism being the base of their life disturbing their relationships, making them unstable.

A Book to trust #24 Sopherim, calligraphers and a message of love and hope

Narrations and stories about men, women and peoples are delivered to mankind to bring a message of love and hope and we can see that by the centuries that passed, not much is changed to the words of those written documents or books and copied by many scribes who were serious about bringing over the right words. As the system announced in the Scriptures rests exclusively on the ground of being from Divine revelation, one might suppose that the deists and sceptics together with their coadjutors the rationalists, in thus rejecting the absolute foundation of Scripture revelation, need not give themselves any further trouble of "criticizing them." The credibility of the declarations of the prophets, Jesus and his disciples is greatly corroborated and rendered in a high degree probable. It will appear unwarrantable to charge men so far surpassing the best and most learned teachers of their age, with such a degree of enthusiasm or villainy, as must be ascribed to them, if their pretensions to a divine influence were either a delusion or in imposture.

A Book to trust #22 Confirmed writings and Tampered books

Contrary to the sayings of KJV-only people, God has given His Word to all people in whatever language they speak and for eternally shedding light on His righteousness and honesty, His Word never telling lies. The Supreme Power also enables us to compare His Word like we can find it in print these days, with the ancient writings and original manuscripts which have been discovered by archaeologists after the 17th century.
