  1. We try to be pretty patient in general on the facebook page, but feel free to let 'em have it yourself on those posts =) I thought the conversation might interest you, given your discussions about KJVO of late! -Laura

  2. It was very interesting, and perhaps as a penance, I am interested in these discussions, seeing that just a few years ago I would have been on the KJVO side!

    I cannot imagine the patience it requires to work at a bible publisher, in dealing with KJVO'ers.

    Thanks, Laura!

    I just happen to have written a couple KJVO articles beginning here, though they didn't start out as being specifically about KJVO. I could also post some rather unflattering material about King James himself, if I can find it again.

  4. Thanks, Paula! If only the KJVO'ers actually knew the character of King James…

    Glad to help. :-) I posted one unflattering link at the NLT FB page, and would post another if it had some sources listed. But I am told by those who know secular history that James was, to put it politely, the kind of man the KJVOs would have executed. But they care not for such evidence, secular as it is, because they prefer to argue in circles, engage in special pleading, and generally defame all who dare to say the emperor has no clothes.

  6. But, unfortunately, when you push them into a corner, they will state that it was just the actual text that you have to worry about, all the while slamming modern translators and companies, etc… Always feel free to post links!

    Uh… I posted again but it said it went to moderation even though my previous one went through right away.

  8. I have it set to a moderation on links. I think I added you to a list to skip moderation, but we'll see….

    I prefer the King James Version, 1769 Oxford Text, to any other Bible. However, I do not claim to be KJVOnly.

    1. I generally have no problem with the beauty of the KJV. Of course, I (in a very high English accent) am a Cambridge man, myself :)
