King James Only?

Another round of arguments is being made for the King James version of the Bible by a man named Sam Gipps. I won’t post his message here, but give you Dr. James White’s response to the claims of Gipps.

The King James only people are quite interesting. What they are trying to claim is that the 1611 King James version of the Bible is the only “true” Bible we have left. What they mean to say is that the only true Bible is this particular translation into English. It’s not the Greek text that the translation was based upon, but the translation itself. This means that the only people who have the true Bible are English-speaking fundamentalist. I’m sure the appeal is made within these circles that the only true Christians left on the entire planet earth are those who have the King James Bible. In a sense, it makes these people almost cult like in their beliefs. I’ve also written about KJV only people here.

Here is Dr. White’s first response:

    I’m seeing lots of solas out there. There’s sola-Insidiae (conspiracy theorist), if you don’t believe in a certain strain of a shadow government run by banks then you’re not saved, and now I see this, sola-KJV. What a distraction!

      It really is. But these other Sola’s are governed by the worst Sola of them all: Solo Scriptura! This is the belief that only “I” can determine truth on my own without the aid of the rest of the church. This one has been infecting the church for sometime now. Sad.

    Here is what Mack wrote:

    What a monstrous misrepresentation and slander! Where exactly did Dr Gipp ever write that “the only people who have the true Bible are English-speaking fundamentalist.” and “the only true Christians left on the entire planet earth are those who have the King James Bible”??? Just tell us exactly where and when – publication title and page number will suffice.
    Good luck finding such a thing, you blithering moron.

    I’ve decided to restrict his postings. He is supposed to be a Christian, but it’s hard to tell given his comments. The accusation that he refers to is in a debate that Dr. Gipp was in back in the 1990s, in which both Dr. White and Dr. Wallace report the same thing. But that is beyond Mack. Sometimes a video is enough, we don’t need chapter and verse for a quote to be real.
