King James Onlyism can be preached in a way that makes it seem truthful. This belief can be presented as protecting God’s Word from Satan’s servants who are trying to destroy the Bible. While this belief seems noble on the surface, the truth is its foundation is built upon prima scriptura rather than sola scriptura. The KJVO belief has no scriptural support that can only be applied to the KJV. The best that KJVOists can do is twist scriptures like Psalm 12:6-7 in order to make it sound like it supports their beliefs.  The hoops they will jump through to defend this false doctrine would make for a good circus act.

I always advise my readers to observe how KJVO advocates deal with people who question them and to take a hard look at their associations. If you see the names Peter Ruckman, William Grady, Sam Gipp, and Gail Riplinger, then you can get a good idea what kind of KJVOist you are dealing with. These names are at the top of the KJVO deception hierarchy.

It’s easy to create a conspiracy theory by comparing different translations from different manuscript lines. By doing this, it can seem like modern translations are changing the Word of God. The same holds true when modern bibles are compared to the KJV. Here are two examples. The first is often used by KJVOists. The second is most often ignored by them.
