This article will present an example of the sort of arguments used by those who believe that the KJV is the only acceptable translation, followed by a point by point refutation and a demonstration of the inferiority of the text of the KJV and its many errors of translation.
The purpose of the article is to help those who have been exposed to the KJV only position and been confused by it, but who have not yet swallowed it and built their life and faith upon it.
The KJV was an acceptable translation in 1611; however, not only has the English language changed substantially, but our understanding of the original languages and the textual evidence has improved to such an extent that in point of fact, the KJV is currently one of the worst translations available.

 The KJV Verses KJV Onlyism : Was the KJV Attacked First or the Modern Versions?
Some KJV Onlyists twist the rejection of, or at least the disdain for, the Textus Receptus in the late 19th century as being some sort of an "attack" on the KJV, when, in reality, it was no such thing.
KJV Onlyists, who are often in a state of paranoid delusion, construe anything and everything to be "anti KJV" and will not hesitate to connect it to conspiratorial plots.
The KJV Onlyists were the ones who began trying to push their version opinions on the masses by printing numerous books and tracts and by posting anti- modern version information on the web, all for the express purpose of getting Christians to doubt, and to stop using, modern versions.

 The KJV Controversy
The KJV controversy is a massive subject, in which, literally thousands of arguments may be used by advocates of the KJV translation to "prove" their point.
KJV advocates, who praise the original 1611 KJV Bible (with its Apocryphal writings) and condemn the NKJV because of its triquetra symbol, are hypocrites, especially when they set the 1611 KJV up as the standard.
Again, the KJV testifies that this is a legitimate translation in Matthew 8:6, 8, 13; 14:2; Luke 1:54, 69; 7:7; 12:45; 15:26 in which the same Greek word (pais) is translated "servant." In fact, in Matthew 12:18 it is translated "servant" and it is speaking of Christ.

 The KJV-Only Debate
In John 10:16, the KJV translates the Greek word "poimnee" as "fold" when it should be "flock" as it is translated everywhere else it occurs in the NT.
In Ex 20:13, the KJV gives the sixth commandment as "Thou shalt not kill!" This has been the source of a great deal of ridicule and damage by liberals who use it to assert that God and the Israelites were hypocrites, since they killed thousands of their enemies.
Where the language of the KJV often discourages the modern reader from completing a course of bible study, a translation like the New Living Translation, with whatever flaws it may have, actually encourages the reader to keep at it until the goal is reached.

 WHY ONLY USE THE KING JAMES VERSION OF THE BIBLE
KJV: And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto Gentiles, believed on in the world.
KJV: And the Scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.
KJV: For angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

 The KJV-Only Position
The idea that the KJV is as good as the autographs is therefore a doctrinal innovation and, like any innovation touching the fundamentals of the faith, should be viewed with grave suspicion.
The grounds for alleging that the translators of the KJV had recourse to perfect texts in the original languages is, again, the so-called doctrine of preservation.
Clinging to the KJV is a violation of the fundamental Protestant principle that every man deserves a Bible in his native tongue.

 Bible Tract: What about the KJV?
The KJV is a fine version, perhaps the greatest single accomplishment in the history of Bible translation.
The effort to push people back to the KJV is not a movement in favor of the authority of the Bible, but is rather against it.
In addition, while the KJV was an excellent translation based on the knowledge of its time, new manuscripts and new linguistic discoveries have been made since then that have clarified many passages that were unclear.

 The KJV Verses KJV Onlyism : Why Do Modern Version Users Criticize the KJV?
Regardless of who began attacking what first, the KJV onlyist should not be misrepresenting someone else's position by insisting that MVUs "attack" the KJV, nor does it make it excusable for them to deride the NIV and other modern versions.
KJV Onlyists tend to believe, or their view point necessitates, that the KJV is exempt from the same problems that inflict other versions.
The KJV is a part of that history, with no special immunity given to it by God to keep it from the same difficulties that other versions have.

 King James Version
Such attitudes have led some of the supporters of the KJV to condemn all other translations of the Bible as either inferior, or the intentional efforts of "Satan and his servants" to subvert the Word of God.
The most obvious positive quality of the KJV is the beauty of its language, and the dignity of its expression (at least to our modern day ears; it probably did not have that same effect upon its original readers in 17th century England).
Even the KJV translators themselves wrote, "variety of translations is profitable for the finding out of the sense of the Scriptures." Such a limited view also does not take into consideration all the other languages of the world.

 King James Version Index   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
This is the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible, traditionally the principal English translation.
The KJV is considered one of the masterpieces of early modern English literature, although most modern readers find the language a bit dated and occasionally opaque.
One thing to note about the names of the books in the KJV, particularly if you are linking to the files here: the KJV books called 1, 2, 3 and 4 Kings are called Samuel 1 and 2, and Kings 1 and 2 respectively in other versions and translations.

 IBSS - The Bible - King James Version
There is the "Wicked Bible" edition of the KJV where "not" is omitted from the seventh commandment saying, "thou shalt commit adultery." William Kilburne in 1659 found 20,000 errors in six different KJV's.
In Deuteronomy 33:17 it says the unicorn has "horns" plural, so the KJV solved this problem by translating "unicorn" as plural "unicorns." It is an unfortunate translation of the Hebrew "reem" which means "wild ox" (BDB, 910b).
The KJV uses the term "dragon" which comes from the Greek word drakon which means "serpent." It refers to a monster with a scaly snake like body.

 KJV Only? (King James Version Bible)
Also, if one claims the original 1611 KJV is the only inspired, infallible Word of God, he is claiming that Purgatory is true, since the Apocrypha was included in the 1611 version and it teaches Purgatory (2 Maccabees 12:45).
I have also heard it stated that an advocate of the modern English translations of the Bible, during a debate format on TV, was rendered physically incapable of speaking when given the opportunity to present his case.
Please know we feel we were forced to defend our position about the KJV which stems primarily from a strong desire to comprehend the Word of God through the use of reliable translations of the Bible.

 KJV 1611: Perfect!
However, the differences between the KJV and even the best of other versions is vast, and defending the King James 1611 is not only necessary, but vital to the very faith delivered by our fathers.
The fact is that the KJV translators and their forerunners for centuries before rejected, trashed and probably burned similar manuscripts because they were so obviously corrupt.
The KJV English was the language at its most eloquent and beautiful, conveying the most fine and exquisite shades of meaning.

 "KJV Only" advocates refuted!
Now KJV ONLY advocates believe that the translators were directed by the Holy Spirit to make the correct choice between two variations in the Greek or Hebrew text.
The KJV reading is identical to the NASB although both indicate in the margin that the verse is missing in most Greek manuscripts.
The KJV reading is identical to the NASB although both indicate in the margin that some Greek manuscripts read "you" instead of "we".

 Were the Early Fundamentalists KJV Only?
The KJV was based on the Stephanus text, which is a revision of Erasmus' Greek text, now called the Textus Receptus.
Yet the KJV was translated from a Greek text that differs from it in 287 places.
One who claims the KJV is the infallible translation and all others are to be rejected as heretical, is going against the historic Fundamental stand.

 KJV and the Textus Receptus
Truly major differences between the KJV and modern translations of the New Testament are primarily due to the inaccuracy of the so-called Textus Receptus [TR], the Greek text upon which the KJV's New Testament was based.
The KJV translators most directly relied upon the 1598 Greek text by the Theodore de Beze of Geneva, but it also was virtually identical with Stephanus' 1550 and 1551 Greek texts, which were virtually identical with Erasmus' 1535 Greek text.
In the KJV most of the substantive errors are due to the faulty Hebrew and Greek texts from which the KJV was translated.

 DEFENDING THE KJV
If you love the KJV, if you believe with all your heart that it is God's Words of eternal life, you can relax, for nothing I am about to reveal to you will shake that faith.
Since Bacon and his Knights of the Helmet possessed the original KJV manuscript for about one year (1610-1611), they had the time to reconstruct the Bible so that its fundamental construction would be identical to the key foundational symbols of Freemasonry!
He and his Knights of the Helmet spent nearly one year fashioning these symbolic pages in front of, and throughout, the text, after the KJV scholars had finished their manuscript.
