But are there not justifiable reasons for “occasional”
correction of the KJV?
A survey of modern preaching, commentaries, Study Bibles, helps etc., shows that there is nothing “occasional” about it! Once the practice is begun, resistence to further alteration weakens, and there is little which is not affected. Sitting under such a ministry, God's people soon find their Bibles to be “in tatters.”
When a Version has become a Standard for nearly 400 years, has been the measuring rod against which all others are judged, has resulted in many millions receiving Christ as Saviour, has been the impetus in sending missionaries to the ends of the earth, and has spawned a world of supplimental literature - then we are dealing with the work of God! To say the least, such a Bible should be treated with the greatest respect!
If the experience of a considerable number of fundamental/evangelical leaders is anything to go by: to publicly go on record in criticizing the Authorized Version, doesn't seem to have a happy aftermath. There is often a loss of authority in their ministry. The pulpit power is not what it once was. They seem to find themselves on unstable and vulnerable ground. And more than a few have crashed completely and are no longer in the ministry!”
