well thank you very much it's the great privilege to be his way and to share in this particular discussion of my life has gone pretty much contemporaneous the week this crisis is so cool that the movie the the abandonment of the King James version of the Bible and the weakness of the question I'm posing is the fasting month of dumbing down is no pardon the cliche date for is that really a matter for sharpening up and doing something that sensible and run professor Gordon Campbell of Leicester University the street an excellent book jogging with its four hundredth anniversary of the King James version course in the Bible the story of the King James version the takes us up to our own time but it introduces us to many mold in translation going to recommend a book mom very happy to acknowledge my cats which are preparing to lobby wanted to say this often the however there is always a however isn't asked Professor Campbell comes the climax of his book he demonstrates I believe that even a halt had it amidst all those can become just a bit of QE on a constant in and pull these are his closing words the King James version is the Fountainhead of Bible translations into English although the phone this modern translations are models of groups goal of the practice there admired rather than Loved it is the King James version but in the fight generations of those who listen to it or read it themselves or two of us other translations may engage the mind of the King James version is the Bible of the heart I read to me right in on the squad but subsequently wrote in Monday's so I humbly beg to differ the mud into a hundred years ago but already don't believe this to any longer to die having lived in Christian circles for most of my life I can in the sight of this would apply to a new high in the minority of people in the church tube which on ministry north west London on in the high road when the area of northwest London in my church run of only one person who routinely reads the King James version of the Bible I love anything that even she would describe it as the Bible of the heart just be possible for a few minutes I'm all for a local scholar I'm a local minister to selected tend to come to this subject for all the from a pestle this goal of the respect it and just to get a bit of my story house to show that meshes in with this they were lovers are all the stops the fifteen year old boy I made a decision the biggest decision I've ever made in one line which changed the whole calls of my life but decided to become a Christian but I come from a Christian background my father liked to call himself an agnostic my mouth up washing with a binky the show to the new suggestion that she wasn't a Christian was no but should go up and have a place which are suspects was last week what we might call moment all but my older brother and aunt were packed off to some this to other Sunday often than not was in the basement Sunday schools to happen in the offing the roles of molding us to die but I think of doing my parents to great injustice what I say to the top of the market price was to show a couple of hours of peace and quiet with the Sunday Express probably gotten older my heart in full because both my brother in law became Christians my brother today is an Anglican and all I'm fifty years on and on just about this vacuum Baptist minister to bed I should read it in my parents' money to school to be on this bike on playing the violin weren't taught me on the text in those times the local church to retrieve a sense of a good number of young people including use of coal some extreme in the let's go its own we used to sing to him in the spacecraft some still sing it to die Jesus sought help from basis of pizza the end they can train them on in my heart to follow duty is in my strength alone just so happen to one of the nicest goes in our group was cold today so what can I leave you to imagine the focus off the right change between us other lesson voices we posses time ma hope to follow Judy is in knots trying to love there is a point to the story by the way to get uncomfortable I vented beating so we're left with but didn't ever in fact follow that you did but there were plenty about this you might be described in terms of present a university entrance procedures as insurance and awe remember the first present I ever received from ago friend most of the pink in nineteen sixty four was his present because recalled you time no below now but yes the book but not just any old book it was of course a Bible what version of the Bible when those days that was on the wrong notion of the bomb what it was the rule for allies solution will be cold you'll throw as though she knows it's not every night it's a neat explained to the the fact that the press note on the wall for all saying whoa small goals the King James the fuss and it so they caught a furious to discover this I suspect their so called if you get around to die laboring on the plane this apprehension so that was my first Bible given to me by the first mile of my mind well remembers a new born Christian kids that are in this Baba hungrily underlining buses I was very good relaxing types in the knowledge in soaking this bauble up yes there were rumors that the top of the Bible's around the names of the facts and all Qs and weighty that the model to other people being mentioned but the authorized version was increased use of the the real Bible we did hit overnight and was not about to get it so I'm putting holes Lexus and gospel of the Gospels in Tamil and English his name was J B Phillips but we will hold his versions were not read the translations they will paraphrase this and that was something very different three is late so I made another life changing decision my main subject of school was English but it was issued a public university that was why would read but already do so I did it in just sixteen I want to be a preacher and if you are gonna be a preacher well the paths of the theology of the fair and so I arrived at university the very back among Wolf's with a lower level not seen them there is a smidgen of green taste to the impulse to me in about three weeks for the last to feature in just about nothing of ancient history all the cats quite frightening but what could I do but take a deep breath and plunge into the depths he got out she reminds me of the comments it was my mom our walk when she was expecting our first child she compared pregnancy to a parachute jump once you start it there's no going back I felt like getting involved in scholarship even at that very elementary level than that of the food she under graduate is pretty robust and well up once you start to grappling with the biblical languages questions of authorship sightseeing interpretation that separates the show you can never re getting your previous innocence he was all taught to squeeze the toothpaste back into the queue or on scrambled or scrambled eggs we can all be done must be really done that questions about English translations were pretty much irrelevant now the sunset mother told guests and forth to the Vermont basic introduction to New Testament Greek but do remember receiving ball I think was intended as a blow to the encouragement from one of us frighteningly good it and carried on its men bother them into law a lot to certain built up costing Kyra there in them but this is the truth said Alston Kyra the language is all in all love primarily with the mind there are sold from the pool this well I think I think I knew what he meant but I'm not sure it's quite as simple as that cuts my light poles were quiet for a senile my boss told another fight he is a novel diet is a Baptist minister Mike comes a month as to sch that is another big decision to persuade the judge he was taunted ball IQ Bible us relying on people to bring their own the once common practice was un realistic and the sons of people sitting with the ladies on a smile perhaps quite difficult passage from pole was being read was simply intolerable it was just the sheer waste of time but if we did buy baubles was good to shoot baby the trumpeter if I stand in the ocean there was of course resistance to abandoning the King James version I think we should stay with the original I was told the stalwarts of the judges up with a fine Christian man but a man who would oversee Neville Owen that not only was he did the King James version not the original we've been reminded to say it was by no means even the first English translation many have gone before the King James version translates as the break they themselves will find that they were not seeking to produce a new translation by Cynthia revision we I may say not to make a new translation up to make a good long time well I profiled in persuading the church in this direction and the shocking go this way now saying to someone and know I've never actually never open the King James version since indeed even their thoughts on the first and didn't last long full of baked good that our walls the bits that have not been taken all three placings of these and the battles with you which was a big thing among us young teen Christians at that time we didn't feel comfortable using the bees and the bass uninformed off pays him such as these brats the archaic even to the translations of the King James notion that look on Tuesday using old fashioned language the new international version came along becoming obsolete one of the most popular persons especially in the most evangelical circles in which my mood and still manage to that so we got into the background silly to that question in the top of my contribution to the date was the stacks of abandoning the King James version irresponsible well be guilty all be trying out a heritage walk to the case of dumbing down or will we in fact showing good sense in sharpening up our swell use of wood we are too of course into the church and knowledge of all the various denominations because it was happening in Anglican Roman Catholic Methodist United all the different denominations not just one hour I think at this point talking to the deaths of them read to you the column which are contribute to infiltrate the spirits of the other poems which it sums up most evil but wanted to suck all this column gloriously un usable the top of which I was brought the crowd because it seems to me to sum up the King James version glorious mess on the usable in our book involved with the beat of the songs did not talk will make it to some boring top of the day but this is probably a bit of all the optional said that translates as the King James version of the bottle four hundred years ago this year front wheel is on the description makes the bike itself as in the language of pagan but it may be understood even though the valley fold up the people I knew that people are made an excellent restoration who could possibly help you with this ironically both the wonderful translation that preaches now falls foul of the very principle by Sir Ivor of the decay the King James version is the golf ball from the cliched faithful puppets in the mold and blow there are two main requirements to any translation bottle or otherwise the first season accuracy the second is intended to give it a stylistic considerations are important but they come with the stinking cool though in terms of accuracy the King James version schools highly ofcourse to translate this couldn't possibly get everything perfect the right thanks the city can see that in another call to that preference the Vegas of the greatest respect for the overall whoa the terms of style the criticism could be made to the King James version paradoxically chose to go to publish scholars have pointed out hurt all over the English of the New Testament is often better than the Greek of the original so that's for itself home mom has lost some of his own Phoenix and hold some of his PA cannot succeed it's a nice question but now no doubt for another guy a ballpoint us victory excellence at the end of the effects of translation if you translate on the tour ended after the Russian into English you could use to reduce than the original Russian is not a good translation but the real problem is intended to visit soon this is often seen all the fault of the translations it is simply that the English language has changed enormously over the centuries money is the King James version not understood even all the very violent up it is not on bestowed by the great majority get in my church in North west London we have significant groups whose first language isn't even English the fault of requiring them to grapple with Elizabeth and it is the beef and nine which is too ludicrous to contemplate its alpha the question let's be honest many of us humble rates however when date UK to owe much to sign not to mention the local news this is what it can be assumed to slay the latest when the suggestion crops up but not to use the King James version is somehow did in the last area too to roll people of this precious different job and in general from the pontiff cultural crumbles the bottle was never meant to be treated as a victory must appease all I thought I wanted to change people's hearts and minds not have been dreaming of his poetry even when the sophisticated while we're at the cost of a mass was primarily concerned with safety the facts out strikes he plainly says so so these readers might understand and their lead to what I did people many of whom I suspect never get anywhere in the rich rich who wraps and on easing QE audit of risking Warriors agents is I find it hard to shut down the response will give me a break but if this is brought the question arises what instead the main problem here is to shift from depression of the oceans or with their strengths and weaknesses just rip the leading contenders of a break up get a new international version which I mentioned earlier being your advice and devotion of leafy preferred approach to the academics and the good news awful complete with its delightful and goings do not despise the good news bobble because of the pictures the translation of belief is good as well but whichever we all fall we need all the help the weekend guests the bar but it's all for all of the large collection of often very difficult ancient documents many translations that will come with background material expert on the tree nuts mass talent show it's been the extra cost is well worthwhile Coleman whose Bible dictionaries and power prices were also caught for anyone serious about the local region the American Eugene Peterson for a tall pole has done for the whole Bible but to the prodigious achievement this what J B Phillips did over fifty years ago for the New Testament true his paraphrase the message is very pretty and awesome always as they say cross the appellant seeks to comfort her regret the most part the height of rendering it does much to bring the bauble to moan the book of such dollars stands four square in the dollar of the tradition of the King James version translates this I need to do for us in the twenty first century for victory distances to be thankful that they fold up in the seventh seed from Brady Quinn the use of the facts so I mention that the authorities to rain but considerations that have to be borne in mind when it comes to translations obvious really accuracy and intelligent habits the less I forgot the accuracy of the King James version so they tell me on how to rough working knowledge of Greek concept an old fart state the goats accuracy the King James version stands out well but the scholarship new song very Fox and inevitably run into some translation obsolete or at least open to new post about it too the majestic just one very obvious exalt pull one that many of you I'm sure will be well aware of that interesting changes that occurred in many Bible translations in the volt spread with the words lead us not into temptation Jesus teaches us to pray lead us not into temptation even espresso with stone of astounding its goal of the masses why front of a little bit perplexing is that one also from India would've good golf the gold who is our Father in heaven believe this into temptation like taking up an alcoholic into a puddle why would he do such a thing what many people cannot be expected to understand how should I I haven't had the ability to starting this with any kind of serious temple is that the Greek word used to harass loss is irritatingly ambiguous it may mean temptation in the moral sentiments and Hudson Institute you know where it may be tested in the neutral since being put to the tax not sure we caught sight of the King James version translates as were the wrong here the translation is technically possible but focused all of the consideration about ambiguity seems to take this goes the other way do not bring us to that on the trial you're about to rip on some of the show you're tall bring this to halt tested the living bone you don't bring us to the tax doing before but bring us to the great royal capital T home run in this respect the King James version would appear to view that the field for them often translations the problem of course with any translation it is is it soon becomes from some the smell of a telephone directory the moment is published is out of date someone but as one even though the recent launch of Bible translations make the role that he will appear in stocks baubles cut the baubles use baubles with these baubles mains baubles United to be that somewhere down on the best to be welcomed we need all the help we can get in our reading of the bone but it is of course in the area are intended to deliver see the real problems are wrong language changes to such a degree that even the woods and use the two years ago are now adults updates on the entire region I read recently of a revision of the major fiction read this do nothing to be published whatever the fuck it it justice and soaps and well it's the book shop around coastal online because they fall don't abuse is not so well I think it is that you're going to be realistic UConn have a booking diction me that expands I didn't deny them asked anyone over forty one and I'll say is that we'll probably have no hesitation in describing a small four with two drawn to but also it all down to fifty one announces I don't like to receive a very different also the guys are used to look more complete what point does the backs of meaning become the primary meeting all the world languages glorious these big parade it's always checked in but it's always moving again referring to my own young guys is a young Christian I remember being puzzled was simple ambiguities of the King James version text drain the Olympics sent Jesus to his just opposite the last supper well used to wonder what might happen to me if I left so it although you drink this occasion up noise poll tells the Christians of probity a small wanted to visit them but was less did that too he was last here that a World War was the problem then lets you get on with us but of course the great work overload the means precisely the opposite of what we now mean by that except for the go to the widow of a store in Sydney's present I was preventing get it to his will for his eye he signed is a very obvious eggs all the stricken exalt was perhaps one thing to do is write the great difficulty involved in seeking to enable the old mean that a woman in the pews to understand the policy good molten translations are absolutely vote they hate the fact that some years ago and you do King James version NKJV appeared on the market though a crusty have never yet met anyone who uses it seems a tacit acceptance that the original King James version is simply no longer call me the coast of the three defenders of the King James version are not speaking out the extreme evangelical and fundamentalist wings especially prominent in America the victory defenders of the King James version rest but it's not so much on the fifth of accuracy or even a touch of events the old downtown to YouTube the language it is the stylistic facts of the predominance much is made and quite rightly of the many memorable phrases the King James version has decreased to the English we still use often without realizing it even to die well even here we need to be careful in many such instances as the King James version translates as we're both pretty happy to recognize the critic is only due to the end they knew very well they were climbing on the shoulders of the jaundice but going before take result of the finest words of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane watch and cry but she entered not into temptation the spirit indeed is within bought the flesh is weak wonderful King James version but now ago but maybe a hundred years to redeem team though how this kinda our end of this the US watch and cry but useful not into temptation the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak the difference of just two votes what other books of the old city and the secret is the baby Jesus in his own skin James version has more now that says thou thy servant depart in peace according to the line of woe beautiful August and I'll have more analysis fell by seventy posting things according to my promise one would be for us so any suggestion that the King James version was ushered into our language all these bond of the memorable phrases apparently this is the best I can profess accountable whom I mentioned at the beginning offices stopping observation it has been estimated at twenty three the son of the King James version published in sixteen eleven dollars and ten but that directly or indirectly through of the polyps that's a statistic the thing with serious contemplation I'm afraid I haven't read Professor David Crystal spoke he kept reading the reviews or get the impression that he too is going rather a long bustling line the coast to settle this is not in any way to describe its the King James version or translates this verse of me and all it is simply to point out that the King James version has been the recipient of much adulation a generation which are repeat it again it never wanted or asked for to Richard Reid has no rights the directive s but it's about the profound influence of the King James version upon them by which all serious the movable own sometimes King James had different method in college this notion to confuse what all these memorable phrases have faded into obscurity you never know I think it's highly unlikely as a Christian of course talk on welcome support in others among the Christian intelligentsia who is seen fit to comment on this and destroyed emphasis on the bauble primarily as a victory treasure as opposed to sacred texts some indeed if found to be intensely irritates me this into C S Lewis that crusty old iconic plus on the back of the King James version rhythms and patients I'm not too cold shoulder on to its resemblance to resume on the supportive plus some other resemblance is usually recognizable if I sign this letter typical sisters if I say at the rate down to match avoided the river and the crack whore without without warning remind you all in the beginning goal to create it has been in the room USS Cole says mischievous streak on call to the sentence exactly equivalent of Genesis one one in both woke mom up and said the Bulls Provo in other words what the sign is the reason it's inherent in the beating of why it's the fact that exactly the same rhythm opposed to something majestic as in Genesis one that something may be commonplace as in Lewis's a distraction is purely coincidental it is not the consequence of any great victory sensitivity I was in fact energetic he opposes any notion of the bottle days on end to the register the future it is he says and you can see the flames coming out of his mouth and he says it is he says Olivia sacred book but a bookseller remorse Leslie and continuously so crude that the smoking but it excludes or Rick panels than merely aesthetic approach you are rated as the church I only bought quote defaults block pots Inglewood against the grain using the true propel us it was not intended to sow putting it very simply Lewis says I cannot help suspecting that those who read the top of the picture nor would you be the top of that cool Richard Dawkins the Prince of Wales the late Michael folks on names that come to my mind it's watching two cases of it being of their atheism right Gnosticism lamenting that utilizes the King James version when the speaking on its preservation well brought up above the red ass victory chant then don't read it all who knows when someone like a conductor but if you know if he's right though missing the very point of reading it in the first place brought a lot of people go to war to split up and come away only able to infuse about the Camberwell what the scenery also because the honey let's think of any infuse about the cost you she has said it is equally scary to talk about the bottle is a monument of English prose on Knitty admiring it as a monument over the graves of Cristiano he says that the Bible has a victory influence upon the notion that teacher not because it has been considered asking the teacher but because it has been conceived is considered as the report of the world of golf watch the dogs sometimes woman looking for tryouts we visited one of those they feel booking museums you've not visited them also yourself you can go to these places is that it's in the life extension and longer around to recreate the village you can watch for it open a box with looking at these foliage or a woman in the long dresses looked in the fall the baking cakes in the provision of uneven to follow Christ TV news pages if you feel like an ice cream you can stop a boy on an ancient on trust in the office and corduroy cap he will offer you the contents of the big square ball swung his handlebar places these visiting museums the Bell Museum which you want a bit of an onion one running also electricity the problem I think the analogy or think is that the problem with those two prior to the bauble largely for its victory value is that their model that the churches old wrong thing they don't realize it but that shutting the church into a pond of the thing you see him something robot quite nice for a visit it's nice to sentimental I thought about the death note practical ostensibly that is the Christ the King James version of the from the point of view of the believing Christian that place must be seen for what it is those comfy than science the place of the King James version it's the realm of the skull up it's the realm of the S states it's the realm of the museum curator the King James version is a wonderful book but it is not a working boat the church if it is taking a toll is a working boat and people coming together after the sheriff of the offence to which the Bible and the top of a modem there's Testament now call somebody might well say well it's now for two years or more since this whole side of the time didn't stop to take place but it was happened since carry all this the kind that is if she's anything but won't that we keep hearing statistics that show that the church is shrinking boss shouldn't hold its Malden on a section of that going out for resurgence of interest in the show and in Christian things the toy good question and it is costing which deserves another lecture revealed to excel what science is that the numerical decline in the chair as it is attributable to a whole range of options the increasing secularization of else aside from the worship of the great gold materialism being of course very much to the fall and was of course it would be impossible to prove this there's no doubt in my mind that things would be very much blokes if the church have clung stubbornly to the King James version I might just add also that if we look around the churches which are blocking this molten trend of numerical beat on DEL very likely on to say absolutely necessary but they are very likely to be precisely those churches that the whole hall to the embrace the Molson Indy and not only in the Bible say years but also in their music even that dress comes with all sorts of other things the polls at this point to go up a little bike crash and just the Hoff a minute to find out the whole the whole stress for a moment by Col resist commenting that the dismissive remarks about the the happy happy too are often extremely unfair I don't think of oneself particularly as a charismatic about something not a happy happy what can only respect the fact that many of these two shoes all the ones that are making meaningful contact with the drug addicts and the gang members often it is the church members who else in the town centers in the OT out to the south of the morning booking of St pastas picking drunken attempts to sell to pick up those giving if it hopes to go to can the longest and oldest in the new offering coffee Creek train compressed a shoulder to cry on we talk about mobilization of dumbing down but believe me it isn't all froth and bubble has real substance there is one and one it we got ten Lions that if you agree so it was the judges about events of the King James version an act of dumbing down one axis allies in shopping up everything hinges on whether you view the bomb blast in history all the facts or as inspired Scripture UMD in any doubt as to my view of them not to see the use of the biblical of cloth looking back now this seems to be the absolute in the ethics of them Etsy about the precious once it stops there was no stopping it do well there really is that it should stay with the King James version as long as it did all you it's another well placed to it in my adoration for the King James version further super cute to thank all for it I'm going for them but that still through the stills the remains of practical working on quilts done well sorry the the the the
