I have several reference books on Bible interpretation. In each, the authors recommend several well-chosen translations to consult for different situations.
Yet a couple of years ago I attended a church where the pastor endorsed the KJV1611 as the only accurate translation. The church’s by-laws even required new members to declare the same.
Plus, I attended a para-church Bible study group organization’s new member orientation which allowed only the KJV, and even prohibited the use of commentaries.
I’m wondering what is the general feeling of RZIM Connect participants on the subject of the KJV only point of view? Thanks. I look forward to hearing all perspectives.
