Studying both side

I certainly do.

Thou art on the button, and I've not met one church leader yet who is willing to study and research this subject, but blindly follows where most others are going.
Thankfully, there are others in increasing numbers, who having changed versions unwittingly, are being led by the Spirit of God to go back to the most accurate version of the Bible, namely the AV 1611, which currently has NO RIVAL. What is more, the filthy lucreists are unwilling or unable (correct) to produce a Bible which according to them has no errors. Och now that would never do - BAD FOR BUSINESS! And they would never be able to afford that extra yacht or swimming pool. Poor, deluded dabs.
I'm right glad to see that the nationwide John's Gospel project makes use of the heavily subsidised gospels published by.....guess who.....THE TRINITARIAN BIBLE SOCIETY! May the Lord bless their continuance in the RECEIVED TEXT translation projects around the world.
A NEGATIVE effect. Definitely!!
But that is precisely what Satan had in mind as the master of confusion.
Thus we must trust in the Lord to set us free by the truth and the work of the Holy Spirit. God certainly did NOT wait till the 20th century to produce HIS Bible.
Just as you will find them in the churches, reprobates and heretics have been involved in translation and production of bibles. Since the Bible is so important as the Word of God, it was bound to be attacked by Satan and his forces.
"Modern versions" strictly speaking relates to versions produced in the 20th century, but "other" versions of Greek text and bible's have emerged before this.
Modern versions have used other various Greek texts, (and textual criticisms) which have been recovered/discovered in the last couple of centuries. Whereas the KJV specifically used the [URL=http://www.trinitarianbiblesociety.org/site/articles/tr-art.asp]]]TEXTUS RECEPTUS[/URL]
Men fought and died to bring an english language Bible to the people of God. The best copy of this Sword of the Spirit was the KING JAMES BIBLE. "OTHER" versions have been produced to compete with the KJB, one must wonder why???

It reminds me of someone else, who pulls all the strings, but doesn't get blamed when things go bad. It will and it has!
Ultimately though, I think the fault really lies in the fact that people don't want the truth. They'd rather believe a lie... It's always been that way. It's the broad way...

Positive? Negative? Or Both? That question seems to ask for either the one or the other.

The Devil is having a field day at the Christian's expense.
Oldest does not mean most reliable, or at least in any dictionary I know of.It means oldest.You neglect to ask vital questions like, when was it written, where did it originate, who penned it, are there corrections and why, and the big one, why does it still exsist if it was reliable?It is not so simple as finding the oldest and there you have the correct rendering. That was Tichendorff's incorrect assumption.This is also Westcott and Horts thinking. Two occultists who would do anything to take the church back to Rome.
You also claim the AV/KJV was translated into archaic english which no one speaks anymore.I am bemuzed. I know people who have english as their non native language and have no trouble reading and understand the AV/KJV. What are you trying to say? Please be more specific unless of course this is just subterfuge?
Our Father in heaven, Reveal who you are. Set the world right; Do what's bestâ€” AS ABOVE, SO BELOW. Keep us alive with three square meals. Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others. Keep us safe from ourselves and the Devil. You're in charge! You can do anything you want! You're ablaze in beauty! Yes. Yes. Yes.
This is the most atrocious translation of any passage I have come across apart from the NIV making Jesus Christ Lucifer.
This AS ABOVE SO BELOW is a total witchcraft concept and a direct quote.If you wanted an image you would have an upright triangle and an upside down triangle.Does this not look like the star of David?
That is how as above so below is presented. This is a very dangerous inclusion in scripture. Very devilish and it is not accident, this is design.
