Atheist Hitchens Praises King James Bible

Atheist Christopher Hitchens paid tribute to the King James Bible, offering rare praises to a book containing the Word of God.

Hitchens is the second atheist, after Richard Dawkins, to laud the KJB in honor of the 400th anniversary of the translation.

The prominent atheists recognized and expressed appreciation for its contribution to English literature.

"Though I am sometimes reluctant to admit it, there really is something 'timeless' in the Tyndale/King James synthesis," said Hitchens in his commentary featured in Vanity Fair. "For generations, it provided a common stock of references and allusions, rivaled only by Shakespeare in this respect. ...

threefoldcord, you and the other gentlemen while you should read the scholarly appraisals that are given on the AV, should just be able to see a few things when you pick up the AV. Is it in modern understandable English? --No-- case is closed. I don't need anyone with PhD's or ThD's to point that out to me.

It is self-evident the AV has to be replaced. My question would be why haven't many of you pressed for the use of the The 21st Century King James Version of the Holy Bible (KJ21®) just as an example? It apparently has faithfully copied all the errors of the AV into itself.

Now, I wouldn't use an AV that has only been updated this way. I even really don't think a Ryrie Study Bible KJV Hardback- Red Letter though I might recommend to a hard-core AVer. A MacArthur NKJV would be better still and the only Bible in the AV tradition I would recommend.

Unless you've made an idol out of the AV --stop that please!!--you would consider these as possibilities.

Yes I know about Warfield, but before you post Jim do you EVER look at both sides of any issue. I guess you didn't listen to the scholarly sermon?

Back to Warfield. T Lettis wrote an article which will enlighten and if you read it you will find some embarrasment re: your own NASB

It just goes to show that recovery from Bible School Syndrome (in which the patient loses faith in his Bible or is bewitched into believing the critical text Roman Catholic ecumenists) is perfectly possible, just so long as they ignore the so-called scholars and do their own research into the matter.

It never fails to amaze me that those who reckon on errors in the Bible are incapable of producing a perfect Bible after "curing" all those errors. Of course it is all a sham and a subterfuge. These folks don't wish to edify Christians but introduce doubts. But thank God there are still some brothers who believe the Bible is the inerrant, inspired, infallible word of the Living God.

Well, threefoldcord, according to your definition the AV is not the Word of God
1) Indisputable, universally recognized errors in the KJV

2)

B.B. Warfield wrote:
We thus have brought before us by the Confession, in turn, the original
autograph of Scripture, produced by the immediate inspiration of God; the
preservation of this autographic text in a multitude of copies whose production
is presided over by God’s singular care and providence; and the
ordinary Bibles in the hands of the people, each of which conveys divine
truth to the reader with competent adequacy for all the needs of the Christian life.

If you familiar with the Reformed tradition, you know who the theologian B. B. Warfield is!

Impossible, when it utilises the United Bible Societies text, along with the Kurt Aland and Nestle text, known together as the NU text. Nothing good longterm can come from any translation making use of such texts.

Why John, U.K., The New American Standard Bible of course!

While the NASB is the best Bible around, Christian scholars, Baptists on the translation team, multiethnic team, and in good contemporary --American-- English. If it doesn't have those features throw out that Bible!

No Bible is perfect, especially if it isn't in the original, Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. Some comments on preservation,

Dr. William Combs wrote:
...as Hills and
Letis suggest, that Burgon’s rejection of the TR was related to its origin
with Erasmus, who was not a bishop.
[DBS statement]
While the Bible clearly teaches the ultimate indestructibility of the
verbal revelation of God (Matt 24:35; 1 Pet 1:25), it does not tell how and
where the written manuscript lineage of that Word is preserved. We believe
that God has providentially preserved His word in the many manuscripts,
fragments, versions, translations, and copies of the Scriptures that are available,
and that by diligent study, comparison, and correlation, the original
text (words) can be ascertained.

...the original autographs. That is the Bible God used, The Preservation of Scripture.
"To my knowledge, no one in that group denies the preservation of Scripture, that is, that the books of the Old and New Testaments have been substantially
preserved to our day. But they do deny that Scripture anywhere promises,
either directly or indirectly, its own preservation—a doctrine of preservation. That is, they can speak of the preservation of Scripture because it is a historical reality, but it is not a theological necessity. This then provides another way to distinguish between groups 1 and 2. Those in group 1, who deny a doctrine of preservation, believe Scripture has
been preserved, but it is only a historical reality—a fact that is clear from the historical evidence. Those in group 2, who affirm a doctrine of preservation, also believe that the historical evidence demonstrates the preservation
of Scripture, but add that this preservation is a theological
necessity—Scripture must be preserved because Scripture itself promises
its own preservation."

So he believes scripture is preserved, good!

But where, Jim?

vjking, yes, what were in the original autographs. That is the Bible God used, The Preservation of Scripture.
Dr. Wallace wrote:
...when the KJV was first published, it was heavily resisted for being too easy to understand! Some people revere it today because it is difficult to understand. I fear that part of their response is due to pride: they feel as though they are able to discern something that other, less spiritual folks cannot. Often 1 Corinthians 2:13-16 is quoted with reference to the KJV (to the effect that ‘you would understand it if you were spiritual’). Such a use of that text, however, is a gross distortion of the Scriptures. The words in the New Testament, the grammar, the style, etc.—in short, the language—comprised the common language of the first century. We do God a great disservice when we make the gospel more difficult to understand than he intended it. The reason unspiritual people do not understand the scriptures is because they have a volitional problem, not an intellectual problem....

Greetings, I was not implying that you were twisting The Scripture to your own destruction. You said you read and meditate on God's Word and I believe you.

Again, your quote to Jim: "b] Oh I see Jim, you are saying that "sinners" should not use the Bible.
That sounds like something Satan would encourage, - are you in league with Satan, Jim???"

My point was regarding, if sinners should use the Bible. And, I believe that there are some sinners who should not use the Bible, because they will twist it to their own destruction.

I was not referring to you in this regard whatsoever, because you are a believer. I was referring to non-believers, who are hostile against God's Word.

God bless!

Maybe Ankerberg and Weldon should look deeper for the real answers, Jim.

Ah, vjking
Drs. Ankerberg & Weldon wrote:
The KJV Only people argue that the KJV is the only inspired Bible against which every other translation is to be tested. This claim is not only demonstrably false, it ignores the entire issue of biblical origin, transmission and translation.

Let’s examine this claim: The original preface of the KJV translators clearly stated their aims. The translators made no claim their translation was either inspired or perfect. Proof of this can be seen where they set variant readings and marginal notes in the text.

from The Conflict Over Different Bible Versions-Part Four

I'm sure they're just as good Christians as you are.
