Since King James was human and a sinner just like you and me, then he had no right to authorize anything. I really don't know why people always trump it about as the Authorized version. That don't mean nothing when you know who authorized it.

If the original Bible was divinely inspired....were the translations also divinely inspired or was a little political/religious control thrown in by the folks that authorized the translations.

No you don't get my point. I believe that the Original Bible (i.e. all the seperate books, individually written) were divinely inspired, but what I was trying to highlight was, who gave the authority to King James, a mere man like you and me, to say what is the result of divine inspiration, and what isn't. Does that mean I too can authorize a version of the Bible?
