Response to I know the KJV translators believed in soul salvation, but the problem is they did not

 
Now, you digressed again and cover-up such an evidently written blunder
to exculpate.

They mistranslated 2 Cor 6:2 while that was a great message of calling
for a human being's soul salvation after he or she are converted to
become as little children

King James Bible - The Translators

Of the original 54 men chosen to translate the King James Bible,
only 47 finished the more than seven-year project, which was
governed by very strict rules of translation. The translators
were scholarly men who were experts in the biblical languages ,
and they were convinced of the inerrancy and authority of
Scripture . Dr. Henry M. Morris, President of the Institute
for Creation Research, said of these men, "It is almost certain
that no group of Bible scholars before or since has ever been
as thoroughly fit for their task as was the King James Translation Team."

The planning of the translation project stipulated that the translators
should be broken up into six panels, and each panel was given certain
books of the Bible to translate. After the translations were done, a
committee of 12-two translators from each of the six panels-reviewed
the work based on a detailed set of guidelines that was established to
ensure that the translators' personal eccentricities and political
prejudices were not included in this new version.

King James Bible - Comparison to the Original Manuscripts
The King James Version translation effort was based primarily on the
Bishops' Bible, but the translators also used the Tyndale, Matthew,
Coverdale, Great, and Geneva Bibles; and because many of the translators
were skilled in both Hebrew and Greek , they could also refer to the
Masoretic text (Hebrew Old Testament) and the Septuagint (Greek
translation of Hebrew Scriptures) during their work. If all of the
Bibles listed here were traced back to their origins (a work beyond
the scope of this writing) the path would lead directly back to the
original Hebrew and Greek manuscripts of the Old and New Testaments
that exist today.

Because its translators strove for accuracy, beauty, power, and literal
faithfulness to the Greek and Hebrew texts, the King James Bible has
endured as one of the most beloved translations for centuries. In fact,
it was unrivaled in its first 250 years. In 1881, 50 scholars developed
the English Revised Version, and they had this to say about the King James Version:

We have had to study this great Version carefully and minutely, line by line;
and the longer we have been engaged upon it the more we have learned to admire
its simplicity, its dignity, its power, its happy turns of expression, its general
accuracy, and, we must not fail to add, the music of its cadences, and the felicities
of its rhythm.

The King James Bible is still found in many homes and churches today, and it is
living proof that the beauty and inerrancy of God's Word has been safeguarded
over the centuries.
