False premise of Bible correctors (James White)

False premise of Bible "correctors", particularly James R. White (The King James Only Controversy).

1.) Only the "originals were inspired".
Paul says that "ALL scripture is given by inspiration of God" and he said that right after telling Timothy that he had the "HOLY SCRIPTURES" (2 Timothy 3:15-17). If something is scripture than it is "given by inspiration of God". And guess what? NO reference in the New Testament to the word "scripture" is referring to any "originals". Peter said that the word of God "LIVETH and abideth forever" (1 Pet. 1:23-25).

2.) There is no such thing as "exact preservation" of the original autographs.
This statement makes a lie out of Ps. 12:6-7, Isa. 40:8, Isa. 55:9-11, Matt. 5:18, Matt. 24:35, Mark 13:31, Luke 21:33, 1 Pet. 1:23-25, and 2 Tim. 3:15-17.

3.) The word of God is bound to the original languages of Hebrew and Greek.
This statement makes a lie out of 2 Timothy 2:9, "Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound."

4.) There is no such thing as an inspired translation.
There's a bunch of them, see Genesis 42:18-20, 42:23, Ezra 4:7-11, Ps. 110:1 with Luke 20:42-43, Mark 5:54, Acts 22, Acts 26:14, and Matthew 27:46 with Mark 15:34.
