In this particular discussion, I decided to challenge a friend on his position regarding the Greek texts of the New Testament. My friend advocates the use of the critical text and the modern translations derived therefrom while I maintain that the Textus Receptus is the correct text and the King James Version the best English translation of that text. Neither of us are experts in textual criticism, but we both have had training in the original languages, and we have both studied the issue enough to be more than just casually acquainted with the various arguments.
The reason that I am sharing this discussion here is not to convince anyone to accept my view of the issue, though I certainly think that you should. My primary goal is to show Christians that it is possible for two mature believers to disagree on an important issue without each condemning the other to hell. I hope that you will take the time to read the debate linked below and consider whether it would have proceeded as amiably if you had been one of the participants.
