    I am laughing about extremely poor education of some liberals, go to any Bookstore and see how many Bibles are there, e.g.

    NKJV, ESV, NASB etc., all are revised KJB. The most worst of those is the NIV, some information about

    What do you care about the King James, Alfons? This isn't even your mother tongue, and the Luther Bible predates the King James by a century.

    Wow. The author of that site has a web stalker fer sure. If I were David J Stewart, I think I would have contacted an attorney about all of the defamatory accusations out there from his stalker.
    I may be wrong.

    I think the one he should be celebrating is probably this one...

    Yep, English is not my mother tongue ( only my fifth and worst language ), but KJV is my Bible ( and NKJV ) because I can feel the Holy Spirit while the reading and the Translation is more true to the Original Greek and Hebrew Scriptures.So-called Luther Bible has a lot of wrong translations.

    I cannot argue that. I have my own preferred translations of my holy texts as well. I just find it curious that you would be most moved by a text that is in neither the original nor in your preferred tongue.

    Re: Edit the King James Bible?

    The only editing I would do is to RESTORE the books and passages that Martin Luther and the Deformers took out because it didn't meet their theological muster...

    The earliest incarnations of the Catholic Church, for 400 years after Jesus, were editing the New Testament and removing books and passages that they didn't like. And even before that, Jewish priests were doing the same thing for the Old Testament.

    Which books are you referring to specifically?

    And then Catholic scholars came together and decided on a canon that was definitively consistent with the teachings of Christ and the prophesies of the Old Testament. Luther just took out books and passages that didn't fit with his personal view of the Christian faith. Significant difference...
