King James User or King James Believer?

Some time ago we posed a question about whether people are King James Bible users or King James Bible believers.  What's the difference?  Read the following excerpts from statements of faith on the scriptures.  The first is from Mission Peak Baptist Church where the pastor prefers the King James and the latter from HAC Alumni.

"We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and that they compose the entire Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible, and God-breathed; and therefore, are the final authority for faith and life. The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments are the complete and divine revelation of God to man. The Scriptures shall be interpreted according to their normal grammatical-historical meaning. (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21)"

"We believe that, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God..." (2 Tim. 3:16) and that "every word of God is pure" (Prov. 30:5). We believe that the 66 books (Old Testament and New Testament) of our English scriptures, which is the King James Bible (1611), were given under the direct supervision and supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit and therefore constitute the perfect, preserved and inspired words of God without any admixture of error (Ps. 12:6,7; Ps. 19:7). We do not subscribe to the heresy that only the "original manuscripts" are inspired and preserved. This Holy Bible is our sole authority for truth for all Christian belief and practice."
