Given that most KJV supporters have never actually read the thing, that means I can make any quote I want, and claim it is from there. As long as it is in weird and elitist language.

Most people cannot tell which quotations are from the KJV and which are from Shakespeare. I believe there are on-line quizzes, which many people fail miserably.

Put Shakespeare, BCP, Revised Version and KJV and I suspect few will be 100% accurate in getting the KJV. A lot of the older KJVers mean "the Bible of the church I attended in my youth" which they assume was the KJV and was often the RV.

It's the same with the Book of Common Prayer. I have lost track of the versions that I have encountered and used; the prayers I absorbed through osmosis in my childhood, are all changed , so I can't even say the Creed anymore without checking[ Nicene]. Or worse, the Lord's Prayer.
I have a BCP printed in 1806, wherein we pray for King George, Queen Charlotte, and Prince George, plus the rest of the Royal family.It also contains services for the celebration of the apprehension of Guy Fawkes, the Martyrdom of King Charles I, and the Restoration of Charles II.
I do miss using it .

Now I see through a glass darkly. Maybe I should clean my specs.

If I don't read the Nicene Creed from the BCP, I will, unfailingly, say, "For the remission of sins." (Why would they get rid of a great word like "remission" but keep "trespasses" and "lead us not into temptation" in the Lord's Prayer?)

Or, we could add to the canon by having a Simpsons Bible. Would that improve accessibility? [Razz]

I'm nearly at 8,000. It's quite fun dipping in and out of threads.

A challenge, yes, SC. But as you see, it is achieved. Time for a sustaining cup of coffee.

Something a little odd there - 8,000 on two posts?

Anyway, mission accomplished. Coffee.

We have a date - 28th February - woooohooo!

I’ll be at work at 5pm so I can’t be part of the initial rush. Probably a good thing, I get nervous in big crowds [Smile]
