[geocentrism] Re: Plenum and firmament

Well, hey, Philip, I'm kind of on the outside on this one as I'm not a
Christian in the common sense, but the reasoning goes thus, I believe:
God's word MUST be preserved somewhere, after all didn't Jesus say not one
jot or tittle...?  It's a simple thought that it must be the KJV.  It is the
most poetic and familiar version to all Protestants, though this could be
argued to be changing as we speak.  (Besides, IMHO, it does not make some of
the problematic errors that other Protestant versions do -- say, ESPECIALLY
the NIV -- concerning geocentrism.  e.g. Gen 1:8, Job 22:14)

As I said recently, if you recall, I think God makes it available for those
who earnestly seek.  "Ask and ye shall receive; seek and ye shall find...."

If you'd like the even shorter answer to the 'why KJV?' question, keep in
mind the old Baptist humor.  "If it was good enough for Adam and Noah, it's
good enough for me!"

:^)

Sincerely,

Gary Shelton
