    First and foremost allow me to say I enjoy the KJV translation of the bible and still read from it.
    When I was first saved I thought the KJV was how God spoke and was the original Words spoken by God. Of course, over the years I realize this isn’t true.
    I have struggled much over the issue of translations for some time because of the issue concerning which Greek text was used to translate into english. However, today I know longer struggle with the issue.
    While I’m the first to admit many modern translations are watered down and attempt to interpret what the writer’s meant, I also realize that the KJV is a “translation” itself and poorly translated in some area’s. It was a translation for it’s time using words from a vocabulary we no longer use.
    In closing, I think whatever “translation” someone uses that enriches their relationship with Jesus is the one, at the end of the day, they should continue reading from. Again, I love the KJV and trust it completly, as I do some other modern day translations. But again, it is a “translation” of Greek and Hebrew and is not the “original” Word of God.

    Well Bro. John, I have to whole heartedly disagree with you. God is the Word. If you can’t grasp that, then you will not see that changing just one word is what brought sin and death into the world in the beginning.
    God told Adam and Eve that if they eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, “that thou shall surely die” Satan had the serpent say ” thou shall NOT surely die”. Before that, Eve made the mistake of adding to God’s Word by saying “ye shall not eat of it, NEITHER SHALL YE TOUCH IT…” God never said
    don’t touch it, He just said don’t eat of it’s fruit. Then Satan had her. Just changing one Word brought every war, murder. rape. perversion, dead baby, fumeral, etc… that we have today. Jesus said that not one jot or tittle shall pass from the law…God split man’s language into many at the tower of Babel. He has the power to preserve it in English. The translating techniques were extra-ordinary. The men picked to do it knew Hebrew and Greek better than any of our scholars of higher critical thinking. The main thing in common that the other Bibles have is they use MSS. based off the Alexandrian corruptions of Vaticanus and Siniaiticus.
    Westcott and Hort attended seances, liked the works of Darwin and Marx. One of them liked Mary worship. They despised the Textus Receptus which is made up of roughly 5000 MSS. preserved and copied down from the Antioch area where the Christians first started preserving them. The Hebrew MSS. text has strict mathematical formula and rules for how many each letter is in each of the book.
    You contradicted yourself when you say that the King James is poorly translated in some areas, but then you say you trust it completely. That can’t be. The other Bibles literally are different Bibles and say different things. The other bibles call Jesus the only son of God, or the only one, etc. The true Bible and the actual true text call Him the only Begotten Son of God. Literally meaning from out of His own self. Not saying you can’t be saved reading another bible, but you can truly, easily be mislead later and believe a lie if you don’t get away from those false bibles. I see way to many people that use the other Bibles and they have a poor understanding of what God says. In many cases they believe the exact opposite. Jesus says that whosoever is angry at his brother WITHOUT A CAUSE, is in danger of judgment. The other bibles say that whosoever is angry is in danger of judgment. There are thousands more. The other bibles have two things in common. they are corrupt, and they disagree with the King James on practically every issue.

    By the way, according to you definition, none of us have the “original word of God”. Once again, denying God’s power to preserve and to protect, and to hand down a perfect translation to the believer. All the “original autographs” are gone. One that Jeremiah wrote was cut up by a king and tossed into a fire. Then a second copy that God had written was read to the king then tossed into the river. yet we have what God said on both of those. But according to you statements, we don’t. It is either perfect, or you can throw all of the bibles in the trash as just a work of man. Because if they are not perfect, then God did not keep His Word. If He is powerless to preserve His Word, then He is powerless to get us out Hell.

    I’m new at this but I understood the bible as written by man but inspired by God. So with my relationship with God, I believe that He will give me the words that I need to follow in His way of life. I am a sinner but will try to do what is right with prayer and reading which ever bible I may have at the time. God bless you all.

    What about the Tyndale translation of the New Testament and part of the old? In the NT he translated “Eklesia” as Congregation or assembly where appropriate, while in the 1611 KJV the word “Eklesia” is transliterated as “church”. Why is that? Eklesia is closest to the Hebrew term used in the OT for congregation and assembly, referring to the people, while church refers to a building or physical location of worship.

    John, The bible was written by God, and is His exclusive Holy Word. The book is called the living Word, because, rather than intellectually studying the translations, God told us that He will cause His Word to come iinto one universal language. The Holy Spirit is the Teacher, and the Bible must be studied in prayer and not in pride. If you are truly saved, you will uinderstand this. Unless we truly submit ourselves and believe that God is not the author of confusion, we have to ask ourselves Will God spit us out of His mouth, and say, Get thee away from me, for I never knew you? There is only one true bible and it is ordained by Holy God, and that is the 1611 KJV> There are numerics in it that no other pseudo bible has, for God gives us a code to preserve His true Word. Blog on to Mike Hoggard.com, and learn the code, and satisfy your soul. Also in the KJV read the last chapter and last three verses of the Book of Revelation, and see the curse put upon anyone who changes the Word in any way. Only go to the true scource, for we are in the very last minutes befor King Jesus comes.

    I’m no theologian, but my pastor says that the KJV is the most wrought with errors and that the NIV is one on the most accurate. The simple reason for this is that the earliest manuscripts were not discovered until 1947, therefore, how can a Bible translated in 1611 ever be considered accurate? It may be the oldest ENGLISH translation of the Bible that we have, but the oldest surviving manuscripts of the Bible in the ORIGINAL language were not discovered until 1947.

    It’s poetic, yes, and it is certainly a beloved translation, and God has the power to do all things, especially preserving His Word on this earth. However, I believe that you would do well in your study of the Bible to look at different translations to help you understand better what God is trying to say to you. A very good place for this is youversion.com, it has multiple translations of the Bible, some even in different languages.

    Also, something to consider, nearly all translations of the New Testament work from a Konea Greek translation, however the original was written in Aramaic. You would do well to look for a direct translation from Aramaic to English version of the Bible, they are available on Amazon. It clears up a few typos in the text such as “camel through the eye of a needle”. Camel and rope are very similar in Aramaic, and whoever was translating it to Greek could certainly not be faulted for this error as only a native speaker could tell the difference. Rope through the eye of a needle makes more sense and is what was actually said by Jesus. Just some thoughts.

    Grace and Peace to you all from our Lord Jesus,

    John

    Something else, you said “Jesus says that whosoever is angry at his brother WITHOUT A CAUSE, is in danger of judgment. The other bibles say that whosoever is angry is in danger of judgment.”

    Let me ask you this, does God not have a cause to be angry with us? God has more cause to be angry with us than anyone has to be angry with his brother/neighbor!! Therefore, I find this statement particularly concerning, because it should not matter whether we have reason to be angry or not, because we are to forgive as we have been forgiven. Think back to the parable of the man who owed a debt that he could not repay in a thousand lifetimes and the king forgave that debt, then the man went out and threw a man in jail for only a thousandth of a percent of what he had just been forgiven of; would Jesus tell this parable then later say “Oh, but if you have a cause to be angry with your brother then you are ok.”? I think not!!

    We have been forgiven of a debt which we could NEVER repay, therefore we should forgive all men of whatever wrong they have done to us. I would examine your doctrine, as it does not sound Spiritual to me.

    I got saved 40 years ago reading a Living Bible, a paraphrase. After I’d read it several times I got a KJV Scofield Reference Bible which I study all the time, I also have an Amplified that I love to just read, and Nelson’s NKJV that I also study with. I have bible software that I use to study from and several other books like Strong’s, Vine’s and many others that I use to go to the Greek and Hebrew for important key words. If one knows the Lord Jesus Christ and studies many versions I don’t think you can go far wrong. God is sovereign. If he can preserve his word he can lead his own in the truth who sincerely are seeking him. As a side note I do prefer the KJV and HATE the NIV…..

    This believing only the KJV is correct interpretation is racist against all languages of the world and even todays common English. When the KJV is translated into Spanish or and foreign language it is no longer the KJV and to say their language Bible is no good is foolish and immature. You would say that everyone would have to learn Old World English to be able to read the KJV because its the only correct version. Jesus did not talk in any kind of English and you say His language He spoke is no good? Fools.

    I agree with #’s 12,13, and 14, and with John’s statements. ‘I started with the Living Bible and felt God’s presence all around me. I have an Amplified which, because original aramaaic and Greek are more colorful languages, and use more words to describe something, helps me. I also have a Dakes King James Bible, The Message, New King James, and ISV. God speaks to my heart through ALL of them at different times.

    I like the King James Version than any other version of the Bible, because there are some words in it that you can’t find in the newest version of the Bile.. some of the text is not really accurate if you look at it in the original text of the Manuscripts. the new versions elated some of the precious words in it.. after all Jesus said.. but by every word.. so every word must cone boldly true and correct in the word of God. like for example the verse in I John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. in other version no record of this kind. so I still wanted the KJV .

    I read the New King James, which basically just takes the language of the regular king James and uses YOU instead of thou, or Ye, but is still pretty much the same. And I’m listening to Word of Promise Bible (NKJV) with Michael York as Narrator and a cast of super talented actors in the roles of best known heroes of the Bible.

    For BEST results, though, I recommend you read as you listen! It’ll help the story stick in there.

    John… so you say the NIV is the most accurate. Then answer these questions from your NIV.
    1. According to Matthew 17:21, what two things are required to cast out this type of demon?
    2. According to Matthew 18:11, why did Jesus come to earth?
    3. According to Matthew 27:2, what was Pilate’s first name?
    4. In Matthew 27:35, when the wicked soldiers parted His garments, they were fulfilling the words of the prophet. Copy what the prophet said in Matthew 27:35 from the NIV.
    5. In Mark 3:15, Jesus gave the apostles power to cast out demons and to_________________
    6. According to Mark 7:16, what does a man need to be able to hear?
    7. In Luke 9:55, what did the disciples not know?
    8. In Luke 9:56, what did the Son of man not come to do? According to this verse, what did He come to do?
    9. In Luke 22:14, how many apostles were with Jesus?
    10. According to Luke 23:38, in what three languaes was the superscription written?
    11. In Luke 24:42, what did they give Jesus to eat with His fish?
    12. John 3:13 is a very important verse, proving the deity of Christ. According to this verse (as Jesus spoke), where is the Son of man?
    13. What happened each year as told in John 5:4?
    14. In John 7:50, what time of day did Nicodemus come to Jesus?
    15. What did Saul ask Jesus in Acts 9:6?
    16. Write the name of the man mentioned in Acts 15:34?
    17. Copy Romans 16:24 word for word from the NIV
    18. First Timothy 3:16 is perhaps the greatest verse in the New Testament concerning the deity of Christ. In this verse, who was manifested in the flesh?
    19. Who are the three Persons of the Trinity in 1 John 5:7
    20. Revelation 1:11 is another very important verse that proves the deity of Christ. In the first part of this verse Jesus said,”I am the A________and O__________, the______________ and the ___________:”

    Conclusion: If you followed the instructions above, you failed the test.
    John these are all missing in the NIV. So now what do you think of your “accurate, easy to understand, up to date Bible?”
    If you would like to improve your score, and in fact score 100%, you can take this test using the Authorized (King James) Bible!
    Remember what scripture says…
    Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
    Rev 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

    yes, because the unicorn was a real animal just like dragons. many accurate historical and scientific accounts and findings prove these animals existed. Myths have truths in them. Even historians and others will tell you that a myth is not necessarily false, just colored. Besides, myths mention every animal that was ever on earth. So, should that mean that no animal exists?
    Also, God can create whatever he wants. He created the angels, etc. What’s stopped him from creating a unicorn? Like many animals, humans killed out unicorns. They were mainly hunted for their horns.

    KJV translated it correctly. congregation or assembly is the church, not the building. The body of believers locally or worldwide is called the church. The name was attached to the building, but that is not what the bible intended. And, bibles must be translated according to vernaculars, etc, without being diminished. If one depends on the Holy Spirit for guidance, wisdom and understanding, one would not care for the languages that the apostles, et al, wrote in, and would understand the bible/the things of God.

    Why can’t people realize that God does not set people up for failure?! If it were true that the NIV is the most accurate because of the scroll used, God would have made sure and guided King James’ people to find that scroll and pattern the KJV after it! He is not evil to just sit there and allow a supposed inaccurate manuscript to be used by Christians for 400 years! That would be setting us up for failure. KJV is the most accurate and the only one inspired by God. The other bibles were made in an effort to conform and compromise to increase numbers and give people what they wanted to hear. Read about the ecumenical movement and you would understand. They go out of their way to discredit KJV, when it was the ONLY bible to lead millions of people to Christ AND they were closer to God because they depended on him instead of commentaries, studying Greek, taking the pastor’s word for it, etc. Before, Christians believed, were bold and strong. Now, Christians are weak and full of fear and doubt because the new bibles condition everyone to leave the Holy Spirit out of the equation. He is the only source we are to run to for guidance and understanding, not anyone or anything else! And, no human should try to ‘understand’ something for us, ie thought for thought translation!

    I never learned old English. When I was 11, KJV was hard for me to understand. I asked my mother wht to do and she told me to ask God for wisdom and understanding, with faith. I did and the Holy Spirit gave me the ability to understand KJV and deep spiritual meanings and truths. I am now 23, and I still never learned old English, do not care for Greek or Hebrew, do not read commentaries, dictionaries, etc. But, I understand KJV as if I have a degree in that form of English and am a mature Christian. That’s what happens when someone depends on the Holy Spirit instead of themselves and other humans. And that’s why KJV is the best, due to it being literal and leaves it up to the Holy Spirit to interpret the word for you, regardless of the language used. When it is put into foreign languages, it is still KJV.

    I applaud you. We will never fully understand God’s word and are not supposed to understand everything at once and as deeply as possible. The Holy Spirit knows when we are ready to either hear about a new topic, go deeper in a known topic, or both. Christians are being conditioned these days to brush the Holy Spirit aside and try to do the above on their own, not knowing what is best for them. And that is how Satan is causing the Church to fall away from God.

    I totally agree with your thoughts/comments RE: the KJV of the bible – it is a translation as well closer to the old english of the puritan days. That is not the original language obviously. I do believe this, God will protect His word – “it will go out and will not return void.” I believe He is very capable of protecting His word through various translations including and not limited to the KJV. I prefer the NKJV and NIV…and prayer, we definately need to be asking the Holy Spirit to direct our time spent with the Father in His holy word. These types of disagreements are not of the Lord–so we need to be careful in our own words, myself included! God bless you!

    You KJVO’s really need to get a grip and repent of your sin of idolatry. You’ve created an idol out of a Bible translation. Good grief. Here you create just another topic to cause unnecessary division in the church. As if the church today doesn’t have enough to worry about with attacks on Christ’s deity, the Trinity etc. And here you argue about a translation that isn’t even the most accurate. The ESV and NASB are much more accurate because they used much earlier manuscripts. And what do you do with all the people saved between the time of the Apostles and 1610? They really weren’t Christian’s because they used a Geneva Bible??

    John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.

    So you’re telling me that any translation of the Bible that is not the “Authorized King James Bible” is false, misleading, and thus a product of the Father of Lies? (It’s funny to think the only “authorized” version of The Word is in a language never spoken by anyone in the Bible.) If you claim other translations are inaccurate and mislead people, then The Word (God) is also partly Satan?

    The fact is that if you can debate the relative accuracy of any translation of the Bible, you are offering up the idea that the Word is corruptible, and thus God is corruptible.

    Can you not see the pride? MY version’s more accurate than YOUR version. You’re being led astray because I have a better Bible than you do. Who needs to debate the accuracy of The Word when one of the seven deadlies is present and accounted for right here and now?

    It doesn’t matter which translation you use for Luke 6:42 to ascertain that you’ve completely missed the point of it.

    This is a black or white issue. Either all translations are viable or all are suspect. God held the pen for none of them. The Roman Catholic church predates King James by over a thousand years. The Catholic church uses a different text than Protestants. The Gutenberg Bible, the first ever printed, predates the 1611 KJV by over 150 years. The list of variations and differences is virtually endless. Arguing about who has the better, more accurate, only inspired version is prideful.

    Matt 15:14 Leave them; they are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.

    No translatiion from one language to another is perfect. While the truth of God’s word may still shine through in some translations, it may not in others. Many older translations may have minor imperfections but so long as those translation errors do not change the message they can still be viable translations. Some translations actually pervert the truth of the Scriptures and those should be avoided.

    2Ti 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

    It is in our best interest to study the different translations and determine how they came into existence and which is correct and which are in error. An excellent book that demonstrates the error being promoted by many of the newer versions is “New Age Bible Versions” by Gail Riplinger. What you may discover about some newer versions may result in one rethinking their position on this subject. I know it changed mine and as a result I prefer the older translations like the KJV or the Geneva Bible (even if the spelling and old english make it difficult to read)

    I never said that. These are your words and not mine.
    My comment is about the NIV and not other versions. And my comment is about the fallacies that are in the NIV. Read the post brother!
    Then you accuse me of being prideful and being led astray?
    I have many versions of the Holy Bible, the American Standard Bible, the Contempary English Version, the English Standard Version, the International Standard Version, the Literal Translation of the Holy Bible, the NIV, and the King James Version, to name a few.
    When I find scripture that is hard for me to understand I search other versions as some have a better interpertations than others. Even though the King James version is my personal favorite.

    The sad thing is that you don’t realize that your statements are a combination of projection and displacement. Do you hear yourself? The bible is God’s word, ie an extension of himself. Worshiping God means to worship his word! The word is God and God is the word! So, we worship his Word, not a translation. Because the KJV was the only recent version inspired by the Holy Spirit, people are finding excuses to reject it. As stated before, the newer bibles are not accurate and the scrolls they use were rejected by the Church for centuries. And, if what you’re claiming is true, God would have had King James’ people use these so-called better scrolls. The division in the church resulted from people ignoring the truth, and increased when these newer versions became popular! The Church these days is akin to the Corinthian church. It mixes atheism, Greek mythology, false denominational doctrines and human opinions and deceit in the guise of Christianity. If people open their eyes, they would easily see the how much Satan is using Christians to bring down the Church! If you have a strong biblical foundation, you cannot be brought down. But, you must have the truth in order to have a strong foundation. These newer bibles have partial truth and are unstable foundations. There is only one truth. You forget that God gladly divides the sheep from the goats so only the faithful will be left! In other words, division is good when it causes people to go closer to God! Also, the word was orally given for decades until the first book was made after the 1st century.The KJV replaced the Geneva bible because God wants his word to be exact with no tampering! The Geneva bible was Calvinistic and Puritan! Only some, familiar people would get saved from such a bible. The KJV is more effective because it has no bias and can reach out to anyone in the world. The KJV got a lot more people saved under it than all other versions! It’s the only recent version to make people strong in Christ! I could careless for KJV as a translation! I only care for translations that only stick to the truth. I am not a KJV only advocate. I am a Truth Only advocate. Since KJV is the only version we have that sticks to the truth, I’m for it. I will also support any other translation that will stick to only the truth, if that ever happens.

    The Bible says the Holy Spirit shall teach you in all things. Right? If this is true then He will give you discernment over which translation meets your needs. You see the Bible is God’s love letter to us and He will reveal His message through His Spirit to our spirit. If you enjoy the KJV read that translation, if you enjoy the NLT read that, eventually the Holy Spirit will guide you to the truth.

    Then, of course, you accept the apocrypha, since that was included in the 1611. Since God said He would always keep His Church (not Word, although I believe He did), then for 1611 years, there was NO Word from God? The 1611 version was mainly translated from the Geneva Version, the ones the Puritans used. In the 1611 version, they celebrated *Easter* in the NT instead of the Passover. Do you really think they celebrated Easter, a holiday named after a false god? It makes no sense. In Leviticus, they talked about the sacrifice of turtles (mistake was made, they meant turtledoves). Unless, of course, the sacrifice of cold blooded animals had begun. And of course, English MUST be God’s language, since all of the other people, speaking thousands of other languages are left to languish? It’s time to grow up and realize that the other versions are just as correct, or more correct than this version. I will not accept the apocrypha, and you must if you insist on this version. Enjoy celebrating Easter when they meant the Passover.

    Funny someone should mention the Puritans since they used the Geneva Bible. Face it, the main versions, such as the NASB are just as accurate, and the NASB is considered the most accurate word for word translation. You sound like the people who wanted to kill Galilieo since you are also unknowledgeable about the version you claim is without error *not*. Why did the translators write notes in the margins saying things like “we’re not sure if they mean this or this here” etc. They never claimed inspiration from God, and they never claimed its inerrancy. It’s mistakes prove it is not inerrant. God had them sacrifice turtledoves, not turtles, and the people didn’t celebrate Easter, a holiday named after a false god.

    QUIT SMOKESCREENING THE REAL ISSUE PEOPLE!!!!!

    The issue is the “TEXT”. All modern versions come from the corrupt Greek text of Westcott and Hort, Nestle Alans and the United Bible Society. ONLY the KJB comes from a pure preserved Greek text. Pleeeeease do your homework. END OF STORY.

    All this “contraversy” about bible VERSIONS is an intent to divide the body of Christ today. If you are guilty of proclaiming a “VERSION” or “TRANSLATION” as the only true word of God, then you are being used by our enemy to divide the body of Christ today. If you are reading from scripture from anything other that hebrew, greek or aramaic, then you are reading what people have said is Gods word and people are fallible.

    Thanks for posting, Joanna! Great point about the NKJV. The parallel Bible is also a great study tool. Here’s a link to an online version: http://www.onlineparallelbible.com.

    You guys don’t even use the 1611 version you use the 1769 version. The 1611 version is unreadable by modern English speakers. You forget also this version was “Authorized” by an earthly king of England. Not by God.

    All versions have errors as well as good translations. That is why we should use as many as we can get our hands on, to get to the truth.

    Yes we do use a 1611 version, “TEXT”. The text of today’s KJV is the exact same text of the 1611. The 1769 changed spelling and font. Yes our King James Bible was “Authorized” by a King. God always works through His established authority Romans 13:1&2

    Charles, truth and era always divides. The question is, who did the dividing? The King James Bible was here first. If you chose a modern version you walked away and made the devision. The truth is all modern versions are counterfeit Bibles, translated from corrupt Greek manuscripts. Here is how to spot a counter-fit Bible. 1 Timothy 3:16 God was manifest in the flesh. If your Bible has “He” in the place of God it is a counterfeit. The man who did that was a Unitarian by the name of Vance Smith. He was allowed on the Westcot and Hort committee. He hated the deity of Christ. 2Timothy 2:15 Study to show thyself approved… If your Bible does not have “study” it is a counterfeit. Someone did not think you should “Study” the Bible. Would you drink a bottle of water with only 1 drop of poison in it? Rat Poison is 99% food. A counterfeit 20 dollar bill is still a 20 dollar bill.

    What a tragedy that people cannot understand and hear the true Word. One point I want to make is the accusation that the KJV was written in an old language and what bothers them is exactly what they point out- thee’s, thou’s, eth’s, est’s, etc. Well, if that was a fact then why does “thee” and “you” appear in the same sentence? If you people who do not believe would study and understand that when thee, thou, etc was used it was to give you a plural form of speaking and also a meaning of an ongoing action. Study to shew thyself approved unto God. Also, even though it was written in English which was not the original language, all sincere Jewish Scholars will tell you that the only English translation that appropriately translates the true meaning of the Hebrew and Greek originals, it is the KJV AV 1611

    I am also concerned that even Christians have not noticed that not only in the NIV and others have changed the meaning of a word, but there are literally thousands of scriptures left out. Not only that but conveniently as the Devil tried to change Gods word in the beginning “Hath God said?” so He continues to try by purposely taking out scriptures pertaining to the most important message, salvation.

    Another fact is that the law says you must change so many words in order for it to be a new trnaslation. In other words if they want their profit making bible to be eligible for copyrighting. For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. The King James can be copied without and permission. The only reason you see a copyright in a KJV is what is really copyrighted are the extras (concordance, dictionary, and so on), not the word itself. New bibles, the word is copyrighted. How evil! They wanted to make money so the law said, then you must change so many words! Wow! Open your ears people and you will hear the Shepherd when He speaks!

    God writes to your heart once you believe. The Bible connects you with Jesus, who connects you the awesome power of God.

    I’m a little confused… I thought the KJV was translated from the Latin Vulgate, which was not the original text… how can the KJV be the most accurate when it is a copy of a copy?

  • #50 written by Sam in Nokesville

    I love the King James Bible and am grateful for the men who worked long and hard to produce the tranlation even risking their lives for their efforts. At the same time, other translations have been developed not to alter the original meaning of scripture but to make it more understandable to believers and are accurate and reliable to the original. To attack these efforts by diligent scholars does nothing to promote the unity of the body that Christ prayed would be One as He is one. I personally use the NKJV but often go to Biblegateway.com to use that resource to compare to other translations including the KJV. May Christ be exalted and may His church be motivated to do all to the Glory of God. Maranatha!
