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 #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.

The translators of the 1611 authorised King James Bible Version looked and studied previous English and other bible translations to work on their version which they considered an effort of which they knew it would not be perfect. They expected the KJV to be later corrected and improved! By implication, they did not hold to … Continue reading A Book to trust #20 Available in many languages #3

We may not forget that language is always changing and that written language fossilizes it and makes it stop changing. English imperialism or a megalomania might be at the source of some English speaking people considering their "King James Version" to be the only true and correct Bible translation, while depicting all other English translations as false and misleading versions. Though the world should know that God is mightier than all people and is strong enough Himself to protect His own Word so that in many other languages, but also in English, many different useful and correct bible translations may be offered at the contemporary book-store. some of the many English versions are presented here.

A Book to trust #17 Biblical archaeology vs Historical science or study #2 Relevance of Biblical record

The Bible never had the intention to be a day-to day factual record of historical events. Biblical archaeology as a historical discipline can contribute to our understanding of Bible history, though we may find lots of people who do not want to make use of those new scientific and archaeological findings and keep claiming that their English King James Bible is the only true and right bible in the world, as if God would only have privileged the English speaking people to come to know His Word.. When looking at how many times scientists and politicians changed of opinion about certain matters or on their thoughts how everything works and how the world has been or should be constructed, we can see that they would better have listened more to the advice given in the book of books, the Bible.

A Book to trust #16 Biblical archaeology vs Historical science or study #1 Flat or round earth

The Elohim wants people to have a willingness to hear His Word Which He offers as a schooling-tool enabling all people to get insight and wisdom. Most of the time people did not want to listen to His word and preferred to follow their own fantasies or what they thought would be scientific right. As such we got creationists, flat earth believers, and many others, who after science brought some proves still did not want to believe it.

A Book to trust #13 Books for education and adjustment

In today's era in which archaeology is proving to be one of the Bible's best supporting witnesses, we can see that less people are being interested in historical facts and figures and even less interested in the bible and its figures. The work done to get the bible to as many cultures as possible is magnificent and bible translations throughout the ages have proven to be very close to older manuscripts which are even found many years after the edition of such Bible translation. throughout all the years God took care that His True Word came to the people all the time.
