The Absurdity of King James Onlyism

There are a number of people who believe that the King James Bible is the only true Bible. Some claim that the Textus Receptus (TR) is the perfect Greek text and since the King James is based off it the KJ is perfect. Others simply believe that the King James translation itself is perfect. Either way, this argument has some serious problems. One problem shows itself in this video taken from the John Ankerberg Show. In this clip Dr. Sam Gipp argues that there is no perfect Bible that anyone can put in their mother’s hand unless they hand her a King James. What does this argument boil down to? You guessed it…Absurdity. If the King Jame is the only perfect Bible then what was the perfect Bible before 1611? See for yourself:
