GT, you have been monitoring this forum for long enough to know how non-KJBers are treated. It all depends on their approach. Those who come on telling us that we are wrong are quickly and sternly dispatched. They have plenty of other places to throw that stuff out to the internet. Those who come on pretending to be something they are not, either pretending to ask an innocent question or pretending to be a KJBO, are removed or "excommunicated" as soon as the truth is revealed.

If a non-KJBer wants to come on this forum and discuss any of the other myriad of topics available and active here, I, for one, have no problem with that. If you agree that the text issue is the one area that you will avoid, then I think that there are plenty here who will receive you as a brother. I know personally that you are serious about your walk with Christ, and that you are deliberate with your discussions.

I would welcome you here, with the one topic exception.

Thanks for your reply, brOTHER Tim.

Just to clarify, I actually do not monitor this forum very much. I just recently came back out of mere curiosity. I will do my utmost to keep my discussion respectful and seasoned with salt.

I have only been on the forum a short while, so I have not had a chance to speak with you.

I just have a simple question really. Why did you come back?

Greektim,
I think that's a fair question. I guess it depends on why they are here and their attitude about the Word of God as it exists in our King James Bible.

For example you say you are here because of curiosity, but some others have come here simply exhibiting different forms of Bible denial, to that point I posted the following on another thread a while back...



It seems to me we get three types of Bible deniers on this forum:

1. Those who are honest about their confusion, they are having trouble with the KJV issue, but they really are seeking truth and asking honest questions about the KJV. We can help these people, if they listen and research the issue. I shall think of these as CBD's (Confused Bible Deniers). Perhaps we should pray for more of these people, so we can help them with God's truth on the KJV.

2. Those who are blatantly in denial of the inerrancy of the King James Bible as it exists today. These people seldom seem to repent, they are here merely to create strife, and usually find themselves quickly escorted off the site with a ban. I shall think of these as BBD's, (Blatant Bible Deniers).

3. Those who are sneaky about their denial. These guys come on here and start asking rhetorical questions and they APPEAR to be a category one above, but in reality they are perhaps the worst type. I say they are worst because they lurk here for a while and put on appearances, and it takes a fair amount of effort and patient replies to "figure them out." I shall consider these as SBD's, (Sneaky Bible Deniers).

Of course I am conscious that these are all precious souls, and I think we should pray for discernment as we try to deal with these confused people. I have already noticed that some like Bro. George are pretty good at this already.

But in the end, I am still amazed at how many of them align themselves with the Alexandrian Cult doctrine as outlined by Brother Ruckman so many years ago.

So iron can sharpen iron. And of course that works both ways. I hope to contribute to this forum in the same way I might recieve contribution.

Now GT, if you start commenting on "going to the Greek", "final authority", etc., the iron around here is going to justifiably bonk you on the head. If you don't want to get disenfranchised before you get started, keep messing around in those threads. We don't need to get that fuss going again. There is plenty of other stuff here to work on. As a friend, I am asking you to not comment on areas having to do with the text, including gray areas.

So I can't add in comments on any textual/translational issue?

Well, thanks for the honest answer. But if you do not have God's Word, then you do not have any iron.

I have plenty of KJV's. So that's not a problem. And I am pretty sure "iron" does not refer to the Scripture but the saint. So I am iron.
