What threats have we made against you, Mitex?
Since the accusation was (implicitly) made against me, I'll add that I made no threat. I was announcing a course of action that I subsequently carried out: Mitex's error of logic was going to get scrutinized. No reason a public statement shouldn't get a close look.

Quote: After mature reflection it was determined to use the Authorized Version. None of the many Revisions [RV, ASV, Darby, Webster, Young's, etc.] have commended themselves to the people at large. The Revised Version, which has now been before the public for twenty-seven years, give no indication of becoming in any general sense the people's Bible of the English speaking world. C.I.

Quote: Was your last post made through "self ambition" and "conceit" or "in lowlines of mind"?
Quote: You are not required to answer any of my questions that of course is your purogative, however; may I point out that you did not answer the following:1. Please define "quoting out of context".2. What do you think the context was?
Quote: 2. Am I required to quote everything Scofield said, or anyone else for that matter; in order to avoid the charge of quoting "out of context"? I notice that you left off where Scofield began, as well as where he ended! Were you quoting out of context?
Quote: 3. What do you think Scofield believed the proper text for his Scofield Reference Bible was? What text did Scofield use in his Reference Bible? The Authorized Version text? The Revised Version text? The American Standard Version text?Darby's Version? Young's Version?4. Did Scofield believe that the Revised Version was the better choice for his "Scofield Reference Bible" and then fail to use the Revised Version? Are you implying that Scofield was going against his better judgment after "mature reflection" in order to follow "the people"? If this be not the case, what do you think motivated Scofield after "mature reflection" to use the Authorized Version instead of the "many revisions"?5. Did Scofield after "mature reflection" use an English text that followed the Greek texts of Griesbach, Lachmann, Tischendorf, Tregelles, Winer, Alford, and Westcott and Hort or a text that followed the Textus Receptus? His choice of English texts after "mature reflection" was the Authorized Version not the Revised Version, American Standard Version, Darby's Versions, Young's Version, Moffat's Version or a host of other versions he said: "none of the MANY revisions".6. Do you think that Scofield felt the Revised Version and those English revisions that followed more closely to the Greek texts of Griesbach, Lachmann, Tischendorf, Tregelles, Winer, Alford and Westcott and Hort was the better choice? If so, what motivated him to put the Authorized Version in his "Scofield Reference Bible" instead of one of the "many revisions" or the Revised Version? Wasn't it as I quoted, Scofield realized the Revised Version would not become "the people's Bible of the English speaking world"?7. What Bible was the "people's Bibe of the English speaking world"? Did Scofield use that Bible in his "Scofield Reference Bible"?
Quote: argumentum ad baculum
Quote: 1. Please define "quoting out of context".What you did (and are now trying to avoid admitting): selecively and deceptively omitting words of Scofield's so that he says what you want him to say rather than what he really said. Scott McClare1. You failed to define quoting out of context.2. What is it that you and Psm37 think I wanted Scofield to say? Whatever it is it sure did hit home! When you throw a rock down a dark alley if something yelps you know you have hit something. I must have hit two birds with one stone because there sure is a lot of yelping!Here is the quote again:After mature reflection it was determined to use the Authorized Version. None of the many Revisions [RV, ASV, Darby, Webster, Young's, etc.] have commended themselves to the people at large. The Revised Version, which has now been before the public for twenty-seven years, give no indication of becoming in any general sense the people's Bible of the English speaking world. C.I. Scofield, The Holy Bible, The 1917 Scofield Reference Edition, Preface.I made no application. I just quoted Scofield. It was Psm37 who came up with: "You are trying to make Scofield anti-Revised Revision." How can that be? I made no application.If I had said: "We can all see by this quote that Scofield is KJVO (whatever that is) and was anti-RV," then perhaps you both might have a point. However, the facts are clear I made no application whatsoever. I gave a simple quote of Scofield and you both started YELPING. Does it bother you so much that Scofield chose the Authorized Version "after mature reflection" instead of one of the "many revisions"? Is this what struck you to heart?Did it prick your conscience that Scofield delibertly chose the Authorized Version after "mature reflection" not to use a text that followed the Wescott and Hort Greek text? Did it get your goat that Scofield made a conscience decision to use the Authorized Version after "mature reflection" not to use the ASV? I ask the questions because I really can't figure out why you and Psm37 would start yelping so much about a simple quote.
