The King James
Version of the
New Testament
The King James version of the New Testament was
completed in 1611 by 8 members of the Church of
England.
There were (and still are) no original texts to translate.
The oldest manuscripts we have were written down
hundreds of years after the last apostle died. There are
over 8, 000 of these old manuscripts, with no two alike.
The King James translators used none of these. anyway.
Instead, they edited previous translations to create at
version their king and Parliament would approve.
So, 21st Century Christians believe the "Word of God"
is a book edited in the 17th Century from 16th Century
translations of 8, 000 contradictory copies of Mn
Century scrolls that claim to be copies of lost letters
written in the sst Century.
That' s not faith. That' s insanity.

Faith is about believing something you can't prove

Oh yes, do you also know that the Orthodox Bible has 10 books more than the King James Bible and the Catholics have 7, because the King James version and 90% of Bibles are for protestants... Catholics and Orthodox have the manuscripts of later Greek books, And the Catholics go back to the Vulgate which was translated by St. Jerome from the Greek to Latin.
So when there is a "hey Christians!" post and it ends up bashing the Bible in general it usually does not pertain to more than half of all Christians

Don't be so quick to bash the Bible. The source says "errors are bound to occur" in reference to scribes copying down the new testament. In fact, monks (some of whom were illiterate) made copies of the Bible day in and day out. If you are wondering how an illiterate person could do this work, they copied down the shapes and symbols they say exactly, and if they made a mistake, that page was burned so that no one could ever claim it was the word of God.

But don't you know the whole old testament was written by Moses.

Also the Old testament is a retelling of a bunch of old Egyptian, Mesopotamian, and near east myths. None of that **** happened, it's all just Grimm's fairy tales revisited.

try telling it to a christian whose religion is based on the king james texts, not just generalising it to all.

Excuse me. Not all of us use the King James Bible. That bible is complete garbage, and I discredit anyone who cites it in an argument. The rest of it was somewhat inaccurate(about how the original bible was written etc), but the KJB was translated to fit a mission. It's all a lie.

this would be a legit argument if it was true
