Have enough respect to let others come to their own conclusion as to what translation they prefer. Your statement, 'if you want the best, you get the nasb, and esv is a close second' is merely your opinion. It seems you spend most of your time reading links and commentaries, so how would you even know which translation to recommend? Others can do their own research if they so desire. If one prefers the KJV, what business is that of yours?
I don't care what the KJV only folks have to say. I get sick and tired of people in certain camps, like yourself Jim L., who trash a translation based on a cult type following. Not all who prefer the KJV are in that camp. You have many comments throughout these boards where you seek to trash the KJV and exalt your NASB, so you are no better than those who do just the opposite. It is like a grade school playground fight and I am embarrassed for you Jim L. and for those who thrust their opinions off as absolute truth.
I am not a KJV only type, however, it should be made clear to them and Jim L. it is a matter of preference. I have no problem reading the KJV at all and I do prefer it to the modern translations. I do NOT cram my preference down anyone's throat and grow tired of those who do. I do admit there are translations to be wary of, doing your homework should cause one to avoid this.
You need to cease from insisting others use a translation you prefer. Rather than argue over translations, examine your own heart. Spend time on your knees in prayer and less time giving out links and commentary from others.
If one chooses the KJV over other translations, what business is it of yours? There are tons of links that speak out against modern translations as well, so why are your links superior? They aren't.
If you use anything other than the KJV, that is your preference. Please, allow others the same courtesy.
Additionally, the two Army EO Equal Opportunity representatives presenting to us at the Command level didn't know the difference between national origin and ethnic background until a chaplain and JAG officer corrected them and one still contended that national origin was subjective given his being multi-racial. And there was even more confusion when sexual orientation and gender identity came up.
One more year of this, not going for 20 in this atmosphere.

I can't stand to see a butch woman, a woman with short hair, a woman dressed as a man, or any woman doing things a man should be doing, lifting, or leading. Such a turn off, but some men like that, I guess. The lines between male and female, not only concerning outward appearance, but in how each acts and lives sure have become blurred.
We were instructed at a weekend drill in November that when there is a heavy object needing to be moved, one should not say, "I need three strong guys to moved this." Nor is proper to even say "I need three strong Soldiers." What should be said in this example is, "We need 3 Soldiers to move this."
And your false accusations continue johnuk. You are digging a deeper hole for yourself. If the Spirit resides in you, you will come under conviction. Your arrogance and blindness to your false accusations in your previous comment, which has been removed, is why you need to repent. Bear in mind head knowledge does not equal salvation. Boasting of your 'evangelizing' isn't good either - don't let your right hand know what your left is doing.
BTW, I already told you guessing gender is not your strong suit. And I already stated my moniker is used by others- that is out of my control.
It certainly was not for the sake of righteousness that Johnuk used slander against the sisters in Christ, provoking them with his false and slanderous statements. His mysoginic behavior is sin. He plays the victim, as though he is innocent. The most terrifying statement Johnuk made is that his conscience is clear. He cannot even see his own sins, may we pray for God to bring him under conviction. It is frightening when we cannot see the log in our own eye and fail to examine our hearts. Instead, he justifies his sin and shifts blame; if he truly belongs to Christ he will be dealt with by God according to his sins.
Slander is not truth John UK - you need to repent of your slander against the sisters on this forum. It seems pride is hard to swallow - yes the Holy Spirit has indeed been grieved this day. It is only heaping up more sin by making excuses and refusing to examine your own heart.
Your slanderous comment was so offensive, it was removed. That says a lot.
I see John UK has taken to belittling the womenfolk here, typical. Here we go again with the false accusations and labeling - is it any wonder John UK cannot attain a wife? He appears to be a misogynist. He exalts himself above the opposite sex as a 'know it all' then proceeds to try and beat them down, group them together, and shut them up. What a good Christian man he is!
It seems a bit self-righteous to ask where some of us will be when we meet real people who want to throw us in prison, or behead us. With all due respect, ms was responding to your statement John U.K., " When you witness to people, it is not a bad idea to start where they are, not where you would like them to be....It is always best to obey the royal law of Christ in all things, including witnessing". According to those very words of yours, MS did in fact comprehend what you stated. Now, if you think you can 'save' John Yurich, have at it. However, it isn't necessary to get defensive when your errors are pointed out, such as "Tell him the mass is not scriptural in parts". MS was correct in responding to you pointing out that all of the mass is unscriptural. May we all be able to withstand being corrected without being offended.
MS - "Your snarky comment concerning self-righteous folk was uncalled for." agreed, apparently pride has reared its ugly head.

And since you take such a special interest in the content of my posts...you may want to read the ones in regards to abortion. If you do,I don't think that you would take issue with my position,providing that you are against abortion.
which part of nat's response do you not understand? He was saying the other poster misunderstood you and was defending you.
I think you are reading more into sc's comment than what is actually stated. Proper punctuation was used, so I am not sure why you are making the accusation you make. It appears sc states christians have discernment, so the long haired hippie would not be able to pass himself off as Jesus. Those who give lip service are prone to applauding men dressing up and claiming to represent Christ.
Maybe a stepping away and cool down period is in order?
Poor Mr. Lincoln doesn't realize that sales pitches are used to sell Bible translations, including the geneva bible. Kirk Cameron is featured in the ad...really? His dominionist views are enough to cause one NOT to purchase the bible he's a spokesman for.
You can have every translation available in your home and STILL die outside of Christ. Unless God rebirths the sinner, what good is a geneva bible, or an nasb? Have you been born from above by God's supernatural power Jim Lincoln? If you have, then you'd stop your incessant silly arguing over a translation and plead with lost sinners to repent and believe on the Lord Jesus. You'd stop with your incessant, never-ending links that you continually post. You are like a broken record, your comments are predictable and do not edify the saints, nor do they have any worth concerning the lost. In other words, your comments are worthless dung.
