Is Arguing about the Law Wrong?

January 2nd, 2015 Viewed 1320 times

In Titus 3:9 we read the following:

But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.

Does this mean that if we have differences of understanding about passages of the Bible that we should refrain from discussing them or holding a strong stand about them simply because we should avoid “strivings about the law?”

The King James Version is a majestic translation of the Bible—one that has spanned hundreds of years and still finds many faithful readers today.  The reasons for that are multiple:

  • The prose’s age and grandeur gives the KJV a majestic feel.
  • The scholarship was great such that very few changes have been needed over the years.
  • Many have grown up memorizing portions of Scripture from the KJV, and that makes other translations sound strange.

Given all of these positive things, many that attempt to defend it as the only translation that is the Word of God resort to all sorts of arguments to either tear down other translations or build up the KJV.  Among them are some weak arguments—arguments I suggest KJV proponents avoid because they don’t help their cause.
