    I've been reading the Preface in my NIV this morning And it was translated by more than 100 bible scholars from many different countries and denominations. That is why it is called International. Then before it was published by the Bible Society it was checked and rechecked by a committee made up of most denominations from across the world. But it didn't mention any Catholic involvement.

    Rev 19 shows Jesus and the saints in heaven having dinner(supper), eventually returning to earth to make war as an army after dinner.

    Did you know that the KJV translators realized the Pascha feast(Acts 12:4) as a first century church feast simultaneously happening with the Jews" Pascha feast?

    All this time you were duped into thinking in 1611 "Easter" meant a pagan holiday.

    See what fake PHD news can do to the masses?

    The unbiased KJV translation PROVES it is not corrupt.

    Ancient trins did not infuse the idea of trinitarianism OR incarnationism in it at all.

    They left that bias for the future modernists.

    The modern Bibles are blatantly biased.

    If somebody says, "Know thyself!", should I bring in a mod?

    Lol

    These videos you posted cannot justify the modern versions in comparison of what Gail Riplinger showed in the video I posted.

    Does anyone on this thread want to ask me what Easter per Acts 12:4 actually represents?

    How can you say that? There are 400,000 variant readings in the Greek NT manuscripts alone due to miscopying by sleepy scribes over the centuries. And the KJV is based on the latest Byzantine manuscripts with the most textual errors and the most time for these errors to creep into the text. Many older and better manuscripts were discovered after the KJV translation was completed. Have you no respect for the pure Word of God?

    Text Criticism groups biblical manuscripts into families by region, date, and text type. Then variant readings can be identified by region and date of entry to help get back to the original text. In this way, the KJV's many errors are easily identified. Finally, the reconstructed text is compared to biblical quotations from the early Church Fathers who quote these texts prior to the writing of the biblical manuscripts. The next result? The KJV is based on the most error-filled and worst texts!
    Consider a simple example. John 1:28 identifies "Bethany beyond the Jordan" as the place where John the Baptist preached and baptized. Around 220 AD Origen went to the southern part of the Jordan and asked someone there where this "Bethany" was. The guy didn't know, but pointed to nearby "Bethabara" as an ideal place for baptisms. So "Bethabara" got put into John 1:28 in what became the KJV text, even though Origen admits the earlier manuscripts read "Bethany beyond the Jordan" instead! Origen had earlier NT manuscripts than any of ours.

    A word for word is impossible. Without adding words. or phrases. which would make it not a word for word translation.

    if we actually translated the greek text. the NT would be twice as large as it is now. Look up one of the many expended translations to see.

    No. The order of events in Revelation 19 is NOT sequential. And I showed why. It's in 3 timelines. The first is future after Christ's return (Rev.19:1-9). The second is present with John bowing to the angel (Rev.19:10). And the third is the event of Christ's actual day of coming to fight with His army of angels, which also is the day He gathers His faithful Church (Rev.19:11-21).

    But you instead choose to heed men who have deceived you.

    I see, so Rev 20 comes before Rev 6?

    You advocate reading the book of Rev in reverse to avoid deception?

    LOL

    You still don't have a clue.

    Not all the EVENTS written happen in the ORDER THEY ARE WRITTEN. You cannot just follow the chapters one after another and think everything happens in the exact order it is written. For example, Christ's coming and the day of His wrath is shown on the 6th Seal, and on the 7th Trumpet, and on the 7th Vial.

    So which Chapters do those 'events' happen in? Here...

    6th Seal - Revelation 6
    7th Trumpet - Revelation 11
    7th Vial - Revelation 16

    It is men's doctrines that have deceived you into thinking the way all the events in Revelation are written are given in sequential order. If that were so, then there's no way Christ's coming should be even mentioned until the 19th chapter! Those men you listen to like to change the order to suit 'their' theories, like the Church is raptured by the time of the Revelation 6 chapter, which is a lie.

    Agreed.

    From a historical standpoint, the KJV is the most significant and influential book ever written in the English language. However, it's day in the sun is over. Not only is it flawed based on a FROM analysis, it is obsolete in terms of what language it is being translated TO, i.e., no one today speaks the kings English of half a millennia ago.

    I have observed that many KJV-only folks have made it an idol.
