Well, if there is one true litmus test for KJVOism, (the idea that the King James Version of the Bible is the only correct and accurate translation because it is founded on better texts) it is the NKJV. Despite what I consider deliberate misinformation on the part of Gail Riplinger, Peter Ruckman, and Jerry Carter, the NKJV is faithful to the Greek and Hebrew readings underlying the KJV. Yet many Baptists who will disassociate with Ruckman over his extreme stand (that the KJV is the only correct translation, period & end of discussion) will attempt to avoid openly accepting the NKJV by repeating the misinformation from the crowd I just mentioned. KJVOism used to be known as Ruckmanism, much like AIDS used to be known as GRIDS(Gay Related Immune Disorder Syndrome). Such people attempt to divorce the fruit from the tree that bore it.
