PWDLTKJV challenge TWLTKJV to make a new translation of the KJV. They don't want a new translation of it. They are fine with the present translation of it. They love it. They aren't looking for contemporary English. They don't think it's a problem. It's not a reason for either wrong beliefs or wrong practices with their people.
The issue of further modernization of the KJV comes from PWDLTKJV. It's not that they want a new translation. It's a trap issue. They want to see if TWLTKJV really do think that the Bible was preserved in the English language and not in the original Hebrew and Greek. They want to see if TWLTKJV really are loyal to a translation and not the very words that God inspired.
TWLTKJV think there is far more to a translation than what is the most understandable. They think there should be some difficulty or reticence to "changing the Bible." Men shouldn't be so free to change a translation of God's Word. It's a bad precedent. It's very common today regularly to keep coming out with this and that new translation, update after update, so that God's Word becomes very fungible. If you don't like how it says it, you can just change it. The Bible as a standard isn't something that should change easily.
PWDLTKJV and pressure to change it are those who already want to get people off of the KJV. The NKJV translators for instance didn't accept the superiority of the TR. They weren't TR believers. They were new translation people, not people sold on the TR. They decided not even to use the identical text as the KJV and yet still call it the NKJV, which to TWLTKJV seems dishonest. The NKJV translators were free not to use the identical text, but they get angry, I've found, when you question them about those changes. They really shouldn't be able to have it both ways.
PWDLTKJV wouldn't even use the text behind the KJV to translate into other languages. They would use the critical text. Yet, these are the people who say the KJV needs an update. If they don't want that text in other languages, then why would they want it in English? They don't. All the momentum for an update KJV comes from PWDLTKJV.
The nature of scripture as God's Word is changeless. God is changeless. His Word is changeless. This popularity of changing doesn't fit the nature of God.
An acceptable modernization of the KJV would and should come from TWLTKJV. It shouldn't come from people who don't care. TWLTKJV don't want an update.
Just for discussion sake, let's say that TWLTKJV decided they wanted an update in more contemporary language, changing some of the words. The churches would need to agree that they wanted it. I'm talking about the churches of TWLTKJV are the ones to change it. The church is the pillar and ground of the truth and it is from the church, the church of TWLTKJV that should spearhead the update. If they don't want to do it, why should it be done? They accept the KJV. They aren't people, like PWDLTKJV who want to keep changing and changing and changing and updating and updating God's Word, like so much silly putty.
An update is not going to be done on the momentum of PWDLTKJV. In the end, TWLTKJV will not be pleased by an update. They don't want it. They believe there are many good reasons not to change the KJV, ones that outweigh, even far outweigh those for changing. PWDLTKJV will not be pleased with an update, because they aren't going to use the update either. They don't care. This is why the update isn't going to happen with the momentum, really fake momentum, of PWDLTKJV. It's just an issue to be used, like propaganda, against TWLTKJV by PWDLTKJV. I don't think they even expect TWLTKJV to change. It's just another reason to keep mocking them, like the mainstream media mocks Republicans for similar superficial and propaganda-like reasons.
A better use of everyone's time, exponentially more important than pushing for an update of the KJV, is to dig into what the Bible says about it's own preservation and to study what God's people have believed about the preservation of scripture. Everyone should get settled what scripture says about its own preservation and about the settled nature of scripture. If men won't settle on what they believe about preservation, they aren't going to get the issue of the text or the translation right anyway, and I don't trust them. No one should.
In the discussion we had here a few weeks back on the King James Version, Thomas Ross in the comment section made a good point that the Hebrews, the Jews, over millennia didn't suggest for an update of the Old Testament Hebrew text to make it more modern. Men should consider why changing the Word of God is not an option. I understand the issue of a translation isn't identical. However, it is at least a similar issue. The very Words matter. The text is a settled standard. It shouldn't be updated, just like there isn't a call for the updating of the language of the U.S. Constitution, but even less so for scripture. Men should just study and explain the Bible, rather than talking constantly about updating.
The sacred nature of scripture should preclude it from so many changes. It undermines trust in the Bible. It turns the authority of God's Word upside down, subordinating it to the whims of men.
