   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).

  God has promised to preserve His word for all generations, and He's done exactly THAT! He caused the KJV to be made for the British of 400 years ago, same as He's caused the NASV, NKJV, etc. to be made for current English users. KJVOs try to LIMIT GOD by denying that modern BVs are His word, & that He caused them to be made.

  Yes, I realize there are bogus versions out there, but that's nothing new. Seems the AV makers were aware of some in their time as well.

BY WHAT AUTHORITY  do you believe the KJVO myth?

Welcome.

Please define terms: what do you mean by the KJVO "myth"? There is the Bob Gray/Gail Riplinger teaching that says to to use concordances, and to avoid commentaries, and that the KJV was (effectively) written by God. These people oppose learning Greek and Hebrew and denies that there is a language in which God gave the original Scriptures.  (I wouldn't waste my breath trying to defend such)

But there is another school that believes that the so-called critical text that underlies most modern versions is corrupt and a product of apostate critics, and thus they only use the KJV, as one based upon the common text in use down through the centuries.

Well, they're both myths.

  The KJVO myth is the false doctrine that the KJV is the only valid English Bible translation out there. It's a myth because it's an invention of man's, and is false. And it's false because there are quite a few other English Bible translations available, old and new, that are just-as-valid & legitimate as the KJV is.

Hope that answers your question.
