   No, actually, 'tis the LACK OF AUTHORITY for KJVO in the KJV itself that tells me it's wrong - not to mention the goofs in the doctrine itself.

The introduction to the original 1611 edition of the King James Version refutes "King James Only."  The translators said, "Therefore as St. Augustine saith, that variety of translation is profitable for the finding out of the sense of the Scriptures, so diversity of signification and sense in the margin, where the text is not so clear, must needs do good, yea, it is necessary, as we are persuaded. . . . They that are wise, had rather have their judgments at liberty in differences of readings, than to be captivated to one, when it may be the other."  I have the original 1611 KJV - it has 6637 marginal notes (alternative readings) in the Old Testament and 765 marginal notes in the New Testament.   The KJV translators, the greatest scholars of their time, were not KJV only - so I am not KJV only either (or should I say neither).
