Nice article, BUT it still won't change my mind about the KJV.I will still stand by my King James until the Rapture comes. Now, about reading the Epistle Dedicatory, the statement of the translators that they were but [poor instruments] to make God's Holy Word known is what I will stand on my plea for people to be students of the Word not scholars who are always coming up with new bibles. Also, I don't need Hebrew,or Greek or an understanding of the ancient languages to know that MY BIBLE IS GOD'S WORD; and I mean the one that I am holding in my hand right now. Don't get me wrong but Holy Spirit is my interpreter of Scripture not languages I can't read in the first place, just give me the old KJV and I will be satisfied. Again till the Rapture comes, I'll stand by what I have written. In Christ, Bruce
The same old drivel that I have been hearing for the 23 years that I have been saved.Can't someone at least come up with a different spiel,the King James is not inspired, it's translated by men, it's been changed and so on and so on, like I said same old drivel.Again, I will say that I am so sick and tired of the word scholar, being a student of the Word, is so much better. Just leave your hands off the BOOK. Just remember also that satan had the same problem, Yea hath GOD said.

Says Jim Lincoln quoting another Dispensationalist. I am not doubting Darby's translation work but it isn't an improvement on the KJV.
So Ryrie has no commentary in his bible and waits until a section at the end-I see.
As bad as Red letter versions.
It is the Bible translation that I want to read my friend and the Holy Spirit to teach me
But, gentlemen! the Authorized King James Version, was man inspired! The Antiquated Version, needs at the very least to be translated into contemporary English. Oh, yes, about Dispensationalism, Dispensations. As far as remember Ryrie doesn't discuss dispensationalism or preterism, except in a section at the end of the Bible!

Excellent resource sites bro, thanks!
FAITHFUL REMNANT I've found there a great article which you might find helpful concerning THE TRUE CHURCH by J.C.Ryle. I read this on a tract some years ago, and was really blessed by it - wonderful stuff!

You have all these new bibles out for the making of a profit, but I also have noticed that every time we have a new bible [not THE BIBLE] come out it is always by scholars. I am so sick of the word scholar, and until these people become students of the WORD, 2 Tim 2:15 "study to shew thyself approved", not study to become a Bible correcting scholar. Also you need to read about those men who translated the King James Bible, they had more learning in the tips of their fingers than all of todays so called scholars. Everybody needs to sit down and read the Epistle dedicatory in the front of all true KJV's. They said that they are but [poor instruments] to make God's Holy Word known, and until todays so called scholars become poor instruments in the hands of GOD,and as far as I am concerned they all have a devil that needs to be cast out. Remember the serpent said "Yea, hath GOD said". In CHRIST, Bruce Lantto P.S. I will stick by my King James Bible until the rapture comes, Even so come LORD JESUS!!!!
You know the translators of the KJV really made it big, they got their secular rewards, "The scholars were not paid directly for their translation work, instead a circular letter was sent to bishops encouraging them to consider the translators for appointment to well paid livings as these fell vacant. Several were supported by the various colleges at Oxford and Cambridge, while others were promoted to bishoprics, deaneries and prebends through royal patronage." from, Authorized King James Version.
It's all about the money. Bible trasnlators HAVE to publish a revised translation every so often, otherwise they lose their copyright. It's little to do with accuracy and spreading the Word of God, and more to do with who controls the flow of capital. That is why Hodder and Staughton have SOLE rights to distribute the NIV in the UK. Money!
