Learning the Way of God More Perfectly
King James Bible 1611 Then and Today

Questions for the Non-KJB believer!

Of course I believe the "original autographs" were inspired. God made available a blank piece of paper (vellum, papyrus, etc.) and used sinful men like Moses, David, Solomon, Peter, Paul, etc. to write His words. However, I go one step further than most. I also believe in the preservation of those words already written and God using men to preserve them, and I have them in the English language, Scriptures. Both inspiration and preservation are actions by God and we are assured by God as stated in Psalm 12:6,7 and are found ONLY in the KJV1611 Bible.

And now, one step even further... I Corinthians 13:10 is referring to the King James Bible in 1611.  Of course, that would mean inspired by God, as well!

The words of the LORD are pure words:
as silver tired in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
Thou shalt keep them, O LORD,
thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
I am very interested as to how a person would answer these questions if they do NOT believe that the KJV or any single version would be considered the inspired and preserved words of God and also called the Word of God.
1. Why would God inspire the originals and then not preserve them as promised -
(only promised in a KJB, by the way)

2. If you claim God has allowed some errors in the Bible today,
why do you not afford Him for making some errors in the originals?

3. Isn't the kind of faith you have "convenient" since it cannot be tested?
After all, since all the perfect set of originals are LOST or either DESTROYED,
you can rest safely in the fact that you can be challenged,
but you will never be proven wrong
since the EVIDENCE needed to prove you wrong is lost.

4. Are you afraid to dare put the same faith in a single Bible available today?

5. Isn't it a fact that to believe in a perfect set of originals,
but not believe in a perfect English Bible, is to believe NOTHING at all?

6. To enforce a "convenient faith," would you go so far as to say, as others have said,
that what God actually meant in Ps. 119:89 is that He preserved His perfect
Scriptures up in Heaven, and not on earth?

7. If this is true, then didn't God write a book to Himself, and not to man?

8. What is Scripture today - and where is today??

9. WHO taught you the King James Bible is not the word of God?

10. If "Scripture(s)" refers to the "original manuscripts,"
then wasn't Jesus really being deceptive to His listeners?
(Matt. 21:42; 22:29; Mk. 12:10,24; Lk. 24:27; Jn. 2:22; 7:38, 42; 19:37; 20:9 etc.)

11. If you claim the King James has errors, then I would have to ask what and where is the inerrant Bible.
The NASV? The NKJV? The LB? The NEB? The ASV? The JB?
The NAB? The NWT, etc. etc. etc.?

12. Since most Bible colleges and insitutes believe only the originals are inspired,
aren't they really teaching a form of Deism?
