Why don't you publish a booklet about the alledged superiority of the NASB or the NKJV over the AV? Make sure to quote extensively from the AV, NASB & NKJV throughout. Distribute it widely.
Then notice that no one anywhere is saying one word to you about the verses quoted from the AV. You can quote, quote, quote to your heart's content.
Soon, however, notice how quickly you are contacted by The Lockman Foundation, Zondervan or Thomas Nelson regarding your use of the NASB or NKJV! I suspect a cease & desist order and/or a lawsuit will follow if you don't pay them an exhorbitant royalty.
Yes, Halberd, real men send their discreet, chaste keepers at home out to fight their battles for them. Just like they send them out to make a living for them nowadays. More of the wussification of America.
Also, I have a book (you proably do, too) written by God that is filled with the recorded history of His opinion of sodomites. I shudder to think what will become of an army of them and the nation they represent.
Why doesn't Sarah Palin go home and raise her kids? She presents herself as a Christian. Does anyone believe Sarah Palin to be a 'disreet, chaste, keeper at home'? And if her husband is a Christian, why does he let his wife neglect her home & her family while running around trying to save the world?
"The makeup of any Bible translation team that is entirely British, as far as I have seen, has always led to an inferior version of the Bible. The KJV is a prime example."
That may be the most stupid, mindless, asinine statemant I've ever read.
I said I wasn't going to say anything more to or about Jim Lincoln's shallow posts but this one just takes the cake.
Where do you think we Americans were at the time the AV was produced, Jim?
Also, do you suppose it could be that one of the reasons God blessed and caused Britain to thrive and prosper for so many years might have been so that He could provide us with the production and widespread distribution of His perfect Word in the English language? Next year is the 400th anniversary of the AV. Try reading one or two of the books that will doubtless be produced regarding the AV's history and see if you don't think that might be the case.
Do you ever think, Jim? Or (as it appears) do you just mindlessly cut & paste the senseless musings of other men who don't know what they are talking about?
And please share with us exactly which other version has been translated by a 100% British committee since the KJV.
John, I don't know a lot about this either but most everything that I've read by reputable (older) scholars agree with you that the Book of Psalms is exactly what Paul was referring to here.
Even if that's not a certainty, look where the use of man made hymns, ditties, choruses, etc. has gotten us.
Most of the music in most of the churches in my area sounds like what you used to hear in the bars in the 1970s. Little of it is really worshipful and none of it brings glory to God. Just man-centered entertainment.
At the risk of being compared to Links Lincoln, here's an interesting link to an article on the use of 'Easter' rather than 'Passover in Acts 12.4:
The men who translated the AV were not sloppy or uninformed. They were brilliant men who were very careful about each verse and word that they translated. Why do you suppose that in this one particular verse (Acts 12.4) they chose to use 'Easter' rather than another word? You'll never convince me that it was an error.
Glenn Beck is a Morman and that makes him an undeniable believer (and in his case, promoter) of the doctrines of devils. No Christian should participate in a political cause with someone like that.
'Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel'? - II Corinthians 6.14-15
