Good first start, repairing errors in the KJV.
The NIV is a weak translation but there are others
that are superior in source material and translator
There is no evidence to support any declaration that
the translators of the KJV are the only God-inspired
translators ever to undertake the task.
God did not die after the translation of the KJV,
nor is He restricted to the KJV merely become some
wish Him to be so.
God is alive and well and honorable prayerful committed
Christians have devoted their lives to the accurate and
trustworthy translation of His Word to the English (and)
to many other languages.
It is a shameful thing for a Christian to slander fellow
Christians merely to evangelize for their favorite
Translations other than KJV derivatives *are not* the
all "work of the devil". Such declarations are beneath
the dignity of any informed and true Biblical Christian.
Sigh ... doc
