Louis Markos, an English professor at Houston Baptist University, sent the petition to 1,000 academics urging that HarperOne withdraw the book. About 35 representatives of colleges and religious journals have signed. "The majority consensus among C.S.

Hey your a little slow today, I noticed a thread you hadn't posted your anti-kjv stuff on yet. I won't tell you which one, I'm sure you'll find it.

BIB, good point, but as I understand it, the Crown is to take control off the AV this year, q.v., Authorized King James Version.

19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book.---NASB
