What’s the Big Deal with King James Onlyism?

  1. Why are lies believed as truth?

    FTA: Robert Dick Wilson, the great Princeton Seminary Old Testament scholar who died in 1930, was well practiced in exposing and refuting error in matters of Biblical studies. In one of his writings, he insisted on the importance of tracing every error back to its original source. His research had convinced him that almost invariably any commonly-held but false view could be traced back to a single writer, and that this error had become widespread, not because other writers had independently investigated the same evidence and arrived at the same conclusions, but merely because other writers were lazy and simply parroted the conclusions of the first writer. In short, the false conclusions were naively adopted and the evidence ignored.

  2. FTA: Although the English used in the 1611 King James Version (KJV) Bible is “modern,” many of the words it employs are different than today. Some words are no longer used and many have changed their spelling over the years. The meaning of a word translated in the 17th century can at times be significantly different from the meaning we attach to it today.

    An example of an archaic and confusing word in the KJV Bible is found in Leviticus 16. While discussing the preparations, events, etc. for the day of Atonement the word ‘scapegoat’ (Leviticus 16:8,10) is used. Our modern definition of a scapegoat is a person (or group, etc.) who is unjustly blamed for the negative actions of others. A boss, for example, who is stealing from the company he works for may try to blame an innocent lower-level worker for the thefts in order to avoid losing his job. This is not, however, the meaning intended by the verses. The scapegoat actually represents Satan the devil and his part in the sins of humanity. He will be responsible for his actions in deceiving others. He is certainly not an innocent party blamed for the actions of others!
