I feel you are right about the KJV, that it is the KJB, when comparing it to the vast 'foundation' of sources from which the translators gathered the text, in multiple languages.
It properly is a translation in that sense.
Now about the rest, I can't sway anyone my way, it's against the rules, and I have broken the rules too much as it is.
I came, yes to try to 'sway' as you term it, but looked like 'the fool' when I tried. (I obviously am new at the forums.)
And I don't like doing that, it's embarrassing. Yet, I moved on, and left 'it' out most of the time, using bad judgement
at times, and getting points.
I am just a simple country preacher, a Cincinnati suburb 'convert', who only has the knowledge of hearing the word of God
in a simple independent Baptist church in Southeastern Indiana (no longer in existence), and reading and studying the word of God myself.
Where the preacher preached and taught from the KJB (and he always did), teaching various 'doctrinal' subjects.
I was licensed to preach by our congregation in 1990. Giving me 'permission' to preach or teach whenever, or where ever
I have opportunity to magnify my Lord.
I have the same 'doctrines' that I have gathered from the Holy Scriptures, that I perceived from various Churches that our
Church fellow-shipped with for years. I never 'saw' some of the 'doctrines' in those independent Baptist Churches, that I read
about on this forum.
I obviously have increased in wisdom while here.
And I am trying to be more considerate of other beliefs than I did at my first postings.
I cannot, and will not defend my position that you mentioned about the 'Bible of my preference'.
Thank you for any prayers for my strength to be the right strength.
And my beliefs to be the right beliefs.
I meant that the King James is THE, ONLY, REAL Bible for the English language, God's pure Word. Everything else is a version, or a flawed translation.
