If an anti KJV person asserts, “The original languages Bible has final authority,” simply show them that their assertion disguises their true belief.  For you see, if they say it is the original languages Bible, someone is still going to have to TRANSLATE the Bible.  This means that when they say “It is the original languages Bible” they are really saying “It is an UNSPECIFIED translation of the Bible.”  Thus, they have NOT really identified any Bible as the “final authority version” of the Bible.  If they say, “I don’t need to translate the Bible because I can read it in the original languages,” they are missing the point that THE DEBATE IS NOT ABOUT WHAT BIBLE IN ANY  LANGUAGE HAS FINAL AUTHORITY; IT IS ABOUT WHAT BIBLE FOR ENGLISH-SPEAKING PEOPLE HAS FINAL AUTHORITY.  At this point, they will either concede that they don’t know which Bible has final authority or will be too proud to admit they don’t know and will walk away.
