You fellas have an "almost" Bible that is "pretty close" with "not too many errors" but "No translation is perfect", yet you all teach and preach out of these "almost, pretty close, some errors, not perfect and not inerrant" multiple choice bible versions. It comes across as more than a little hypocritical and shallow of any real meaning when not even you guys believe The Book is the inspired and inerrant words of God. That's why.
Your obsession with demoting "The Word of God" to such as base level as the KJB is not woking on this end.
1. The KJB has been with us 400 years, why are churches that preach from it making different claims about what it means? A divided kingdom will fall, read the book. The word of God does not return void, why hasn't the kjb corrected the church?
2. The phrase "word of God" is used 4 times in the KjV OT and 44 times in the NT.*
1 Samuel 9:27
And as they were going down to the end of the city, Samuel said to Saul, Bid the servant pass on before us, (and he passed on), but stand thou still a while, that I may shew thee the word of God.
1 Kings 12:22
But the word of God came unto Shemaiah the man of God, saying,
1 Chronicles 17:3
And it came to pass the same night, that the word of God came to Nathan, saying,
Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him
You can look up the rest. You think that "the word of God" is written in a book? Try substituting "kjb" for "word of God" in any scripture, it won't work.
Creation was established by the word of God. The word of God is truth (reality), not some idea written in a book.
3. James comissioned his bible supposedly becase he wanted an accurate translation. From what did he translate it, *if there was no infallible bible?
Nevermind you're not listening anyway........
