An Argument That Backfires--Rebutting King James Only Claims Of "Missing Portions Of Scripture"

  • Discussion:
          -Members of the King James Version only camp commonly complain about supposedly removed passages of Scripture in our modern English translations. What they do not realize, however, is that their translation of dogmatic preference is also a product of textual criticism:

          "If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it." (John 14:14, NASB)

          "If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it." (John 14:14, KJV)

          "and he was shown to be the Son of God when he was raised from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit. He is Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 1:4, NIV)

          "And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:" (Romans 1:4, KJV)

          "Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The LORD is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does." (Psalm 145:13, NIV)

          "Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations." (Psalm 145:13, KJV)

          "Again, (amen,) I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father." (Matthew 18:19, New American Bible)

          "Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven." (Matthew 18:19, KJV)

          "I know him, and if I say that I know him not, I shall be like to you, a liar; but I know him, for of him I am, and he sent me." (John 7:29, WYC)

          "But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me." (John 7:29, KJV)

           "But they are all gone out of the way, they are all together become abominable; there is none that does good, no not one. [Their throat is an open sepulcre: with their tongues they have disceaued, the poison of aspes is under their lips. Their mouth is full of cursing and bitterness, their feet are swift to shed blood. Destruction and unhappiness is in their ways, and the way of peace have they not known, there is no fear of God before their eyes.] Have they known me, that are such workers of mischief, eating up my people, as it were bread and call not upon the Lord? There were they brought in great fear [even where no fear was] for God is in the generation of the righteous." (Psalm 14:3-4, Great Bible)

           "They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the Lord." (Psalm 14:3-4, KJV)

           "they understood, and fled together to the cities of Lycaonia, and Lystra, and Derbe, and into all the country about [and all the country in compass]. And they preached there the gospel, and all the multitude was moved together in the teaching of them. Paul and Barnabas dwelt at Lystra." (Acts 14:6-7, WYC)

           "They were ware of it, and fled unto Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and unto the region that lieth round about: And there they preached the gospel." (Acts 14:6-7, KJV)

  1. Too funny! The KJVO's only assert missing verses because they worship the T.R., not realizing there are indeed more authentic manuscripts.
