Again, upholding the KJB as the best standard overcomes issues surrounding what actually should be the Word of God in practice for all.

The big problem is that because this Calvinist is arguing from a self-defeating position. He allows for changes in the TR. If the TR needs changes, if something is not in true “majority”, if something is not “Byzantine”, he is willing to change it. That is the crack by which the enemy enters. Rather, if we have the absolute and settled KJB, and see that there are no places where it can or should be “improved” or altered, then we are in a safe and strong position.
