      I believe something very similar to this, not exactly the same, although so similar; it might be parsimonious, yet valid, to state I believe the same.
      So, what?

      believe it!

          The second reason is that people that do not believe that the KJV is the complete and inerrant word of God do not believe that there is any complete and inerrant word of God to be found on earth.
          The third reason is that he agrees with the doctrines that come from using the KJV.
          Excellent analysis. I thought it was a great deal of whining and wishful thinking. Along with straw men.

          I also thought that BE/WD were much more direct and all but one of their points was quite objective.

          Examples:

          From WK:
          I used to naively think that all bible versions were basically the same and that they all taught the same things but just with different or more modernized words.
          My reaction: the argument that the KJV is better than some other version or versions does not amount to evidence of it being the only perfect version.

          From BE/WD:
          By the testimony of the translators themselves, including in their own preface to the 1611, and like many previous versions, the 1611 King James Bible itself was a revision. This brings us to our next question, with the BR XIV Rules requiring that numbered questions are repeated by the opponent, and then answered forthrightly.

          BWQ6: Will Kinney, please explain how God revealed to mankind that the KJ is the only inspired version of the Bible, and please indicate when, i.e., what year, this was first known?
          I don't know of any way WK can answer this question. I expect him to avoid it. All he can say is that he just wants there to be an English infallible version. In other words wishful thinking. In fact, the tone of his opening post was so emotive that I don't expect the debate to follow on standard scholarly lines at all. I don't think that WK is up to it. He does quote a lot of examples but these are only examples of his emotive, personal and subjective views, not of an objective argument, so the many examples are somewhat a waste of his time and ours in my view.

          Not a single one of these scriptures teaches anything close to there being a book called the Bible which is the definitive inspired revelation of God. Not even close. I wonder why you posted them?

                Will Kinney says this:

                Some versions like the ESV, NIV, NASB, RSV omit about 3000 words from the texts found in the KJB and NKJV, including anywhere from 17 to 45 entire verses, and they often reject the Hebrew readings. They also add to them, and not even in the same places.
                He admits the NKJV on part with the KJV here, so what exactly is his objection to the NKJV? Does he not believe it as "inspired" as the KJV?

                PS - i took the names from the post this above was written in, at the begining it says " King James Bible Debate with Bob Enyart and Will Duffy" Sorry, confused the wills, and fixed the post

                    • Hi everyone, Will Duffy here. I hope you are all enjoying the debate. I know I thoroughly enjoyed preparing the last few months, including some international travel to really get hands-on with documents that are hundreds of years old.

                      So here's a peculiar one. Maybe someone can help me understand and comprehend this, because I'm at a loss for words. I am getting booted and blocked from King James Only groups on Facebook for promoting this debate. I have not made one argument or said anything about the KJB. I simply posted a link to TOL to make others aware of the debate. Is this even comprehensible?

                      Maybe others here could help me promote the debate on Facebook in the various King James Only groups, since I'm quickly running out of options. You'd think they would want to promote this, right?

                        That's because you're still focused on the printed book. The Word of God exists inerrantly because God promised to preserve it. If he decides, during one period of history that it should be preserved as ketchup written in the Sahara sand, it will be so. If he decides to preserve it as literature, it will be so. The medium is not the essence of the truth, just the vehicle. The essence of the truth is preserved revelation.

                        Now, where is it?
                        Religion is man's attempt to make himself acceptable to God. Christianity is God making man acceptable to Himself.

                        • The world’s book like the Bible can never be exhausted, nor can any one person completely report it. It has as many aspects as it has translators. Most commend it to its readers as a book of morals, and to many it is the world’s great fairy tail. Others find it as an archaic historical document. While many find in it religious inspiration as the only true book of faith.

                            If those verses are supposed to show that God has promised that there would be a complete and inerrant Bible available for anyone, then they prove my point very nicely, since none of the verses even come close to a promise of a complete and inerrant Bible.

                            No, that doesn't provide any promise about a complete and inerrant Bible, either.

                            Maybe you should have started with this one, since it actually speaks about a written book.

                            John 21:25
                            25 And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen.

                              • I read most of Will Kinney's first post and agreed. Then I read the first part of Bob Enyart's and found myself agreeing. I'll have to go back tomorrow and read them both in full.

                                I have and easy solution, I stick to KJV only and have a good NIV for concordance. My NIV is a Life Application Study Bible. I always do my personal Bible reading from the KJV, so I win either way
