Re the King James Version:
While studying England's history, I found a source that said King James (1603-1625) proclaimed the divine right of kings when he saw increasing resistance to his rule.
The KJV's dedicatory words may turn a non-monarchist's stomach.
As one who once studied this pretty deeply, here is my take on it. We no longer have the scriptures in "original languages" as they called them. We do have fragments but not complete originals. Even the Dead Sea scrolls are mostly fragments. What happened was that some wise guy decided once they had complete scripture translations that anything original wasn't needed anymore so they done away with them. Of course, we still have the incomplete fragments and almost every year somebody comes out with a new bible or testament, based on the originals it says.
Here's how that works. Charley knows the special kind of love the bible speaks of is "agape" in the Greek, but what if it became "a guppie." Wouldn't that be "fish love?" Hey, it fits right in. Sign of the fish. Draw it here on the ground for me too. What do you mean that fish is older than Christians and is really a vagina? We're gonna use it as our symbol anyway just like we use that older cross symbol.
Our translations are true coz writings started showing up in 70 AD. Some before. These guys are good. They remembered every word of Jesus and we even have his words in red. Just for the record, I'm a Mel Gibson fan. The Jews killed Jesus. Martin Luther would agree with it. What do you mean Jesus was a Jew? We have the true words of god here.
