People like to attack the KJV Believers, saying that there is loads of errors with it or that there are "newer" and "better" translations than it. If you look at any Bible published after 1880 however, you will see a VERY big difference, and the problems prevalent in the NEWER translations.

I heard a sermon by Charles Lawson and he is a KJV Defender. He said something along the lines of, that you can't keep up with all the different NIV versions / revisions, that it's getting to that point when you read the NIV -- which NIV are you reading(?), but the problem I had with this statement is my knowledge of the different versions / revisions of the KJV itself. There isn't only one KJV.

My question to you, brethren, is this: How do we refute people when they boldly declare that the KJV is not infallible, and how do we respond when they ask "which version of the KJV is God's inspired word?"

There is the Cambridge, and Oxford editions, and there is the 1611 and the 1769 KJVs. Discuss.

Faith comes by hearing; which of the KJBs sound different?

Okay -- you are using the words "versions" and "revisions" and "editions" like they are interchangeable. The KJV has several editions, but not different "versions" or "revisions" like you are thinking!

Some people get all hung up on capitalization and so forth but you need to understand that a few spelling and printer's issues do not add up to different "revisions." They have an excellent sticky from Sam Gipp on all this stuff, did you read it?

Well from 1611 to 1769, they differ in terms of some things being missing from the 1611 to 1769. I heard the argument though that their printing press required them to print BACKWARDS, so these "omissions" would've been easy to make, and were not intentional.

In terms of the Cambridge vs. Oxford, there are some textual variants. I believe by faith though in the KJV, because all the modern versions today clearly are different from it.

The typeset is backwards,you can see it in the video.
It would be difficult for anyone to print one sheet at a time,with typeset placed backwards,in a dark room.
The differences between the 1611 and 1769 and todays KJ Bibles are really minimal.

David F Reagans article is excellent,he also has one entitled,The tale of 3 cities.

Demonstration of a printing press.

They are all the Inspired word of God,because Inspiration is through Preservation.

There are some "counterfeit" KJV Bibles out there too though, I hear. Not everything King James is genuine, just like Christ said not everyone who saith Lord, Lord shall enter the kingdom of heaven. The Oxford has some variations from the Cambridge also.
