        There have always been those, not unlike you, who, thinking themselves wise and full of knowlege, scoff and deny the truth of Gods Holy Word. Doubtless, there will be those who carry on the blind and foolish practice of denial long after you have gone to your just reward!

        But, I do not desire to see anyone pass through the veil of death and suddenly find that they are condemned to the eternal flames of hell, where there is no hope, no birds to sing songs, no beauty, no love, no joy, and no God! Even though my tears for you and my words to you will not move you to accept that which is true, I shall at least try to persuade you, not for my sake, but for yours and those whom you blindly influence!

        Many years ago, I was like you, full of knowledge, and believed that I was wise! I had no desire to serve anyone but my own arrogance and desires. I made one mistake! I picked up a Bible and asked God to prove to me that He is real! The Bible I picked up was the King James version of the Holy Bible! Over the next few weeks, I developed a “hunger” for the Word of God. It was as if I was starving, not physically, but spiritually! I ate of the Bread of Life and God drew me to Jesus Christ, as a speck of metal is drawn to a giant magnet! HE, the creator of all things, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and Jacob, revealed the Son of God to me, as a reality I had never before known. I wept when Jesus raised Lazarus when He wept. I wept when Joseph revealed himself to his brothers. I wept like a baby when Christ fell and stumbled on the way to the Cross. HE LIVES! THE WORD OF GOD IS TRUE! IT IS A LIVING THING! God declared it to me in His own words!

        For me, there is no other form of the Bible! For God declared to me by the revelation of the Holy Ghost, that “My Word is a Living thing.” Reject it or accept it! You have that choice before you now! But if you reject it and die the first death, you will spend all eternity pleading for another chance, whch will never ever come again! Just as Satan had a choice, you too have a choice! Make the right ONE!

      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.

      If you are stupid enough to believe that a unicorn is a flying horse, then you deserve the newer “bible” perversions. Unicorn simply means a animal with ONE horn. There are many animals alive today and in the past that fit the description. We have one horned rhinos, whales and lizards alive today so why is it so hard to believe that there was a one horned animal alive a couple thousand years ago? Wake up and use your brain instead of letting yourself believe little girl fairytales.

        I never said the unicorn was a flying horse. So, you are foolish for interjecting that. The unicorn was a one horned animal that looked like a hybrid of a horse and goat (a few other similar creatures), and was very stubborn and mean. They never had wings and are nothing like fairy tales that you are referencing imply. We do not have unicorns anymore because humans killed them out for the price of their horns. They have been extinct for hundreds of years. Wake up and use your brain instead of being a fool.

      Actually, I just seen a pastor point out a dinosaur that roamed the earth in at one point in time upon the earth. Maybe in early Bible times. It was quite large and had a big horn that stuck out of it’s head, like a unicorn. I seen it’s picture, as the scientist drew it, according to bones found!!! It is Hollywood and who ever else, that put it on a nice white horse with a twisted horn. But there was a really big animal/beast that really did have one!!! LOL So it guess the Bible knew what it was saying all the time!!!!

      That, and the zoo. If you’ve ever been to one – oh, they call them rhinoceros, today. You ought to go there and count the number of their horns.

      Can you count to one?

    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.

      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.

          In my many years of studying the Living Word of God, I have come to realize many truths! The natural man can read it over and over again and come away thinking that it is a “good book” full of fanciful stories and hard to accept in all parts.

          But the man who penitently seeks the truth, reading it prayerfully and in reverence to God, he is more than likely going to have his spiritual eyes opened and his deaf ears unstopped, by the revelation of the Holy Spirit!

          I speak to you all of Spiritual things, not carnal! For the Word of God is revealed to humble men who seek HIM with their whole heart, not the proud and hauty! The more you “eat” of His Word, the bread of life, the greater the revelation and maturity of the believer!

          If you say that you don’t want “that” or you don’t believe “this” is for the believer today, then God will not compell you to accept it. The Holy Ghost is a very polite and sensitive teacher of the Word of God! HE IS A PERFECT GENTLEMAN! If you deny that the gifts of the Spirit are not for the believer today, guess what…you wont get them! Not ONE!

          The deeper things of God are revealed to the believer as he grows in the Word and becomes deeper in his spiritual walk with our heavenly Father! Even though I speak with the tongues of angels more than you all, it is not I but the Holy Ghost who works within me to bring glory to my holy Lord and the author of our faith, Jesus Christ!

          For I am a bond servant, who rejoices in the Word of God, my Father! For there is no good thing that abides in my flesh! it is Christ, the Son of God, who bought me with a ransom and I prefer to know nothing but Christ crucified for the redemption of mans sins. It was at the Cross of my holy Lord that we all came to the knowledge of Him! Let us all look up and pray up, for the promise made unto our fathers and their fathers shall soon be revealed to the world of men. Truly, I say unto you all, that Christ, our savior shall return, even now He stands at the door, to gather unto Himself all that the Father has given unto Him. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad beloved, for the Wedding Supper of the Lamb is at hand!

            So true.
            Mark 4:11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:

            For those who are outside it is like a good, moral story book but unto us, His children, it is a mystery of the Kingdom of God revealed. It fills us with such excitement and at the same time I feel so grateful to have this marvellous plan of God revealed to an unworthy soul like me.

          Here’s some scripture for King James Codes, not equidistant letter sequencing (spelling?):

          Here is wisdom. Let him that hath UNDERSTANDING COUNT the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (Rev. 13:18)

        How is it ordained? Because it was the first english speaking Bible. What about the german Bible from Luther or the Latin Bible, or the Greek/Hebrew original Bible. Take a step further the Bible as a whole book started around 300 A.D. The Old Testament before Samuel was written down probably around King David’s time before that it was stories handed down by word of mouth for generations.

        The orginial 1611 KJV Bible ten commandments had one tiny misprint
        “Thou shall covet thy neighbor wife”. The word ‘not’ was accidently left out. Sorry all you KJV only people there are mistakes in the KJV of the Bible. Can you read Shakespeare? Shakespeare and KJV are written in the same language. Nothing wrong with KJV but do not let it become your idol.

          It’s not even the first English Bible. The charter issued by King James for the committee to translate and compile the KJV included the king’s opinion that existing English translations were inaccurate and the Geneva (an English translation) was the worst, which was his reason for commanding that a new translation be made.

        Thank you, godwithme777,” for your inspired post. I “cut my teeth” on the KJB. It is my best friend and I love the fact that Holy Spirit is my teacher and guide. If we learn to quiet our own limited thinking, we can hear from God in His Word. I would suggest that those who think they know it all, humble themselves in the eyes of the Lord, ask forgiveness for hautiness, read His Word, Jesus, in quietness and hear the Lord saying “… be still and know that I am God.”

Oh, and if anyone would want these teachings, you can send for them, and they will send them out FREE of charge!!! Listen to them, then make up your own mind!! But I’m sure you will see the truth!!!

      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!

      Thank you. When the Lord found me back in 76, the KJV was my 1st bible. I currently use the NASB. When I 1st stared to find out about the ‘KJV-only’ movement (I don’t know what else to call it), I felt a red-flag in my spirit. The Lord showed me a nbr of things. Part of that was what you shared. It is a translation of a translation. And of course there is the battle over the ‘textus receptus’. But the 2 things that the Lord showed me were the bottom line for me. 1) Where is the love of God? If you believe the God of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob is going to deny people salvation b/c they didn’t read the KJV only, not only are you short-sighted, but you are under the law. Does Rom 10:9 read “If you confess w/your mouth the Lord Jesus, & believe in your heart that God raised Him up from the dead, IN THE KJV ONLY, you shall be saved?” Well, I’m sorry, But even in my KJV it does not say that. And 2) Jesus said “the HOLY SPIRIT will lead you into ALL truth.” Not the KJV. Unfortunately, you will have those who will remain stuck in their holes on this issue. They shorten the hand of the Lord, & the work of the Holy Spirit. And so I have one question to ask then: When God speaks to you, does He speak to you in the KJV only? If so, I do not think you are hearing the voice of God. When you translate into other languages, do you translate from the ORIGINAL Heb & Grk? Or from the KJV? If you said the KJV, you have issues w/the Holy Spirit. Does this mean all interpretations are perfect? No. But to say that the KJV is the ONLY ONE, well, that would mean Jesus was off then, b/c He didn’t have it, or use it. And as it is written, if you keep one part of the law you must keep the whole law. And no one except Jesus has done or ever will do that. But as Stuart Chase once said: “To those who believe, no proof is necessary. To those who don’t believe, no proof is possible.” In short, the Holy Spirit, NOT the KJV, leads me into all truth, as Jesus said. If you want to follow a bible, well, that is between you & the Lord, who said “do not put strange idols before Me.” And I have seen people put their bibles before them as if it were God, instead of focusing on God Himself. If you do not understand what I am saying here, pray for the Holy Spirit to reveal it to you. I remember when the disciples wanted to pray for fire from heaven to strike down those who weren’t walking with them, doing as they did. I will leave it to you to read Jesus response. Paul got it when he said “I have become ALL things to ALL men so that by ALL means I may win some.” And again, “There are those who preach the gospel out of spite, and those who preach it out of truth. But whether in truth or spite I thank God b/c the gospel is being preached!” God bless all of you. Please know that I still like my KJV, and it was the Holy Spirit who literally showed me what the archaic words meant. Albeit, “I would rather speak 5 words in a known tongue than a thousand words in an unknown tongue…” One more note. I have found that people who believe in the KJV-only movement also deny the work of the Holy Spirit in the gifts. They deny tongues (which, don’t get me wrong, have been abused today just as they were back in the church at Corinth), miracles, healings, etc. You can either remain blind to the work of the Holy Spirit, and come dangerously close to committing the unpardonable sin, or you can open your eyes & see the wondrous works which the Lord has done in areas like Africa, S America, etc. Do not shorten the hand of the Lord. Do you seek signs, or do you have to see a miracle to know they are happening? “Greater works than these will you do…” Finally, for the KJV only, if you are truly adherents to this teaching, then you must, I repeat, you MUST speak everything, every word out of your mouth, in KJV only. All your thoughts must be KJV only. Why? B/c “man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word which proceeds (oh, forgive me, proceedeth) from the mouth of God.” If you are claiming that the KJV is the only true interpretation of the bible, and it is God’s word, then you must speak only in KJV language, lest ye be found speaking some word which proceedeth not from the word of God. Good luck on that. Me? I prefer to hear the Holy Spirit’s interpretation. I’m sorry for sounding sarcastic. B/c honestly my heart aches for those brothers & sisters so caught up in the letter & missing the joy of the Lord, which is supposed to be our strength. If God is not big enough to know your heart, and understand what your reading if you read outside the KJV, then your god is not very big. I say this in hopes of spurring at least some of you unto love & good works. And actually I do like the KJV of that, “provoking” b/c the word in the orig grk implies digging a thumb under one’s armor into the ribs…rather provoking, irritating. I love you all. Jesus loves you all, and there is nothing you can do about it! Have a truly blessed day.

        AWESOME WOG…If God created The Universe do these men not believe that God Thru the Holy Spirit Cannot oversee and intervine in the Translations of His Word…I myself was saved by The Gideons Version of the Bible, in a sleazy motel room. What a battle, however what The Father has Given to The Son Jesus/Yeshua NOONE can snatch out of His Hands.
        ALso The King James Bible has the Word Easter instead of Passover. Seeing That Passover was and still is A God Ordained Holy Day, i will continue no further. as was Jesus The Passover Lamb who was slain before The Foundations of The World. Jesus is The Only Way to The Father, not thru King James or any other man….I suggest all who want to continue in these petty disagreements, STOP and realize That Our God Is BIGGER than ALL of this. And that you who continue to argue these things are wasting precious time. The Holy Spirit is givin from God above not thru King James….Jesus IS The Way The Truth and The Life. There is no other….Hallelu YAH.

        • #34 written by Russell Lee

          Your explanation of Easter has no merit. Easter was a pagan holiday celebrating sex. Symbols of fertility of that holiday are still used today, i.e. rabbits, eggs, etc. The KJV mentions Easter only once (vs 4):

          1 ¶ Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.
          2 And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.
          3 And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)
          4 And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.
          (Acts 12)

          Do you really believe that King Herod was a Christian celebrating the Passover? Look at his crimes in the leading verses. If you still really believe Herod was a Christian celebrating Passover, please stay from me and my family.

          • #35 written by Vasily Sculley

            Are we to say that he was a Christian at all? I mean, Herod was killing Christians. Why should we assume he was celebrating Easter? If you are going to believe that Herod was a Christian celebrating Easter, then please stay away from me and my family.

            The use of the word PASCA is in reference to time. Herod was trying to make the Jews happy. He attended Passover because it was good for his political career. And because it was passe to execute people during Passover, he would not make what he would think was a political blunder by executing Christians during Passover.

            Just because the word PASCA is used in the vicinity of Herod, doesn’t mean it should be translated differently. You’re going to need a lot more convincing arguments for that

  • #36 written by Brian M. Correll

    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.

      In all of this “debate” we’re having doesn’t it seem that we are exalting a translation rather than the Triune God? I think we are when we exalt the KJV–yes, the KJV had many flaws in it; one being that it called the Holy Spirit “itself”–for that matter (and I occasionally read the KJV), why didn’t the Puritans and Pilgrims use the KJV but opted for the Geneva Bible instead?

        Agree brother. I mentioned that in another remark. The KJV has become an idol to those who, altho they ay not recognize it, are worshiping it, denying the very power of the Holy Spirit to lead us into ALL truth. If God can’t speak to us except thru the KJV, then, to quote a little out of context “we of all men are most miserable.” I like my KJV, and the Holy Spirit helped me to understand the archaic words. But God does not speak to me in KJV, and I don’t expect God to be limited by a translation. Otherwise I am limiting Him period.

          Several of you are boneheads when it comes to God’s Word. Many of you are totally missing the mark when it comes to the KJV. It has absolutely nothing to do with idolizing it and everything to do with believing its purity.

          6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
          7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.
          (Psalm 12)

          So what that the KJV is not the original? God didn’t intend it to be the original when He purified it through seven levels of translations.

          Still want to cling to the perversions of God’s Word? There are very very few translations of the Bible that are NOT copyrighted. What does a copyright mean? A copyright gives the author legal protection of his private interpretation for commercial profit. While study aids and other notes of interest may be copyrighted (which are not part of the Bible), the KJV is NOT copyrighted nor can it be. It was financed by public monies for the public’s use. There is no commercial benefit to it.

          20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
          (2Peter 1)

          This is the only time the word “private” is mentioned in God’s Word: in connection with the interpretation of Scriptures.

          17 For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.
          (2Corinthians 2)

          I fully believe that the KJV is the word of God and the Holy Spirit has shown me many wondrous understandings of it, as God meant it to be, because of my faith in it.

          17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
          (Romans 10)

          Nothing further needs to be said except that those of you who have thought yourselves to be wise in honoring the corruptions of God’s Word: you need to repent of your error and get right with God.

          18 ¶ Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
          19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
          20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
          (1Corinthians 3)

            1. Let no man deceive himself into thinking that something that wasn’t written by the Apostles directly is perfect.

            2. The Catholics were wrong to require people to pray and read Scripture in Latin because it wasn’t what they spoke, In the same way, it is wrong to require people to use the KJV, because there ain’t a person in the English speaking world that uses that vernacular of English.

            3. Unless God Himself says that the KJV is perfect, dropping down a copy of the 1611 KJV from the sky in a shining light for all people to see, record, and post on YouTube, then you have no evidence. I don’t recall God saying the KJV is perfect.

            4. Copyright laws in the United States of America REQUIRE that all literary works be copyrighted prior to the publishing, as of the 1950′s. Most non-study Bibles (meaning translation alone without commentary) are published under what is called “Public Domain” Copyrights. This means that a person can use any length of a passage of Scripture, so long as the version is cited. In that manner, all KJV Bibles currently hold copyrights:

            My personal KJV holds the following line at the end: Copyright (C) 1970, 1983, 1987 by Thomas Nelson, Inc., Nashville Tennessee.

            Don’t fool yourself into thinking that the KJV is free to copy and reproduce. The only reason it is so is because someone is paying for printing, publishing, and distribution, which runs upwards of millions of dollars, given the current production by the Gideons and other 501c3 companies producing copies of the KJV. However, most, if not all, translations are given for free to people without commentaries.

            What gets to me is the inherent hypocrisy of this stance. You would pay 80 or more dollars for a study Bible, but you whine when you, a Christian, would be required to pay a measly 10 dollars for a copy of Scripture? Are the commentaries of modern fallible men worth more than the words and teachings of Christ and His Apostles and Prophets? It’s easy enough for a homeless man to get his hands on an NIV or NASB for free. and, honestly, the NASB is a much more literal translation than the KJV could ever hope to be.

            5. To state that the KJV is perfect is to idolize Scripture, because only God is perfect. If the KJV were perfect, then it would be God. The KJV is the work of men, nothing more, nothing less. It is a high quality translation of the Scriptures into a language which is no longer spoken (when was the last time someone said “thou” outside of reading ancient literature?).

            Using the KJV as Scripture is about as useful today as using the Latin Vulgate. The language is dead, and only those with a college education possess the vocabulary, syntactical knowledge, and cultural knowledge to understand the subtle nuances within it. Granted, I am one of those people, and regularly read from the KJV in my devotions. However, I would be a great fool to ignore the words of the KJV translators themselves:

            Indeed without translation into the vulgar tongue, the unlearned are but like children at Jacob’s well (which is deep) [John 4:11] without a bucket or something to draw with; or as that person mentioned by Isaiah, to whom when a sealed book was delivered, with this motion, “Read this, I pray thee,” he was fain to make this answer, “I cannot, for it is sealed.” [Isa 29:11]

            And guess what. The KJV Translators altered their translations several times, in that they included alternate translation possibilities in the margins of the 1611 KJV, a copy of which I happen to have access to.

            they even said

            Yet before we end, we must answer a third cavil and objection of theirs against us, for altering and amending our Translations so oft; wherein truly they deal hardly, and strangely with us. For to whomever was it imputed for a fault (by such as were wise) to go over that which he had done, and to amend it where he saw cause?

            Why would they need to defend alterations that they made? If they were inspired and superintended by God, they would have made no mistakes, no errors. No need of alteration or translational variances in their notations would be required. Nay, they would only need to include their translation. But there were other possibilities available.

            Examples of lines that could be interpreted more properly:

            Theopnuestos. In II Timothy 3:16, the term Theopnuestos is translated in two ways. In the KJV, it is translated “Given by inspiration of God.” In the other versions, it is translated “God-breathed” or “breathed by God”.

            On the face, there is a huge difference. However, the word itself is the hint. Theos is the Greek word for God, and pnuestos, or more closely, Pnue, is the Greek word for breath. Pnuestos means “to breathe out”. So to put them together, it is saying that Scripture is literally the very breath of God Himself. It’s only a hop, skip, and a jump from there to the idea of inspiration. However, in relation to breathing, inspiration is to breathe IN, while Pnuestos means to breathe OUT. The technical medical term is properly “Expiration.” However, in the KJV, it is mistranslated. Instead of saying He breathed out Scripture, we teach that He breathed it into Himself.

            This, among many others, is a foolish interpretation of Scripture, and I would never use it myself as a professional translator (American Sign Language).

            The KJV is riddled with problems, including the fact that my grandchildren will most likely be unable to even come close to reading it, and most people in this world wouldn’t be able to read it, and never will.

            So what? Follow in the footsteps in the Catholics and claim that some random translation of Scripture is perfect? Or stick with the early Church, always translating Scripture into the vernacular?

            I think I’ll stick with the Martyrs Justin and Ignatius.

        Speaking of the trinity doctrine and “the Triune God”, I would like to mention that it is a false one. The Father of the Son and all of us is YHUH, the ONLY TRUE ELOHIM.

        1 John 5:7 is not in any early manuscripts yet it the foundational verse for belief in the trinity doctrine. Without it, the Holy SPirit is no longer a person and is more accurately discribed as “itself”, for the Holy Spirit that proceeds from the Father of all Spirits is of Himself. It is the Holy Father’s Spirit.

        Combine this fact with other scriptures like John 17:3, 2 John 1:3, 2 Peter 1:1-2,2 Cor. 11:31, etc etc.. we have a basis for truth. The Father is the eternal and invisible Elohim (God) YHUH and His Son is YHUHSHA, our eldest brother and mediator. I know you won’t find any of this YHUH wording in the KJV because it has replaced the name with a title, the LORD. Those who adhere to a sole translation of the scriptures risk being totally blinded and deceived, putting the pride of man (and his translational skills) on high. The reason the Father allows there to be no absolute truth in any one translation (since the original manuscripts remain elusive to this day) is so that He can remain the Source of all truth, revealed to us by His Spirit (Himself) which is given by measure according to the will of His Son, who sits at His right hand on His throne and to whom all power and authority has been given until all his enemies become a footstool, at which point the Son will return all back to the Father, our eternal Father and King/Elohim(God)/etc.

        The truth is out there and His Spirit will guide us to it, if we remain meek and humble. May our Father’s Spirit and His Son reveal it to whoever seeks them.

        • #42 written by Courtney

          Apparently you do not speak Hebrew. Deuteronomy 6:4 in Hebrew is שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ יְהוָה אֶחָד – Sh’ma Yisra’el YHWH Eloheinu YHWH Eḥad. The word Ehad (also spelled “echad”) is one of three Hebrew words that can be translated “one.” The other two “yachid” and “bad.” The difference is that “yachid” or “bad” might be confused as saying that there is only one God or that he is first among gods. The word Echad is different in that it states that there is one united being that exists as God, but that he has more than one part (i.e. the trinity). The best example I can think of for using the word “one” in this way in English is when we say the United States is “one nation” even though it is made up of fifty states.

          As for references to the trinity in the KJV, what about the first chapter of John? Verse 1: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Verse 14: “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” The first verse asserts that the Word WAS God, the fourteenth says the Word and the Son are the same, so the Word, the Son, and God, are all the same being. Hence, the first chapter of John, in the KJV, supports the doctrine of the trinity.

      Well sir, the problem with saying that the KJV is perfect is, that there are a number of books, for instance, Iddo the seer, that are missing. Therefore, the KJV cannot, nor can any other translation be, complete and perfect. I am sure you have your pat responses to these remarks. But the bottom line is, as I said in another reply, that Rom 10:9 does not say “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, & believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, IN THE KJV ONLY, you shall be saved.” And Jesus told us “the Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth”. not the KJV. And argue as you may, the textus receptus has plenty of errors. But what you are saying, is that those who have called upon the Lord, those who have asked the Holy Spirit to guide them as they did their translations, are heathen. That the Holy Spirit did not guide them. Therefore you are calling them liars. My heart goes out to your sir, and I don’t take lightly God’s word. But I know that “wisdom from above is 1st pure, then peaceable, gentle, compliant, full of mercy and good fruits, w/o favoritism and hypocrisy.” If I am trusting the KJV, I am not trusting the Lord. I pray for wisdom from God, not the KJV. When God speaks to you, does He speak to you in King James only? If you say yes, then I think you have some other issues to clear up 1st, b/c God is not the author of confusion. Likewise sir, if you believe that the KJV is the only true version, then you must only speak it, in everything you say, b/c you are only supposed to speak what God tells you, and if He speaks to you in KJV only, then your whole life must speak KJV only. I’m sorry, but God doesn’t speak in KJV only. Maybe He does to you. I can’t really say He doesn’t as that is between you & Him, and maybe the only way you’d listen to Him is if He spoke, out of love for you, in the KJV only, until such time as you were able to handle meat. We can go back & forth all day, neither convincing the other. But as many have come to realize, it IS the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit alone, who leads us into ALL truth. Not the KJV.

    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.

    • #51 written by April
      about 3 years ago

      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.

        This is true. In the book of Acts, the “church” is described as meeting in peoples homes or in Jewish synagogues (that must have been a little strange). We know from history that some churches in Greece met in temples to Greek gods for lack of another “public” place to congregate. In the Middle Ages, “the Church” referred either collectively to all Catholics or to the Holy Roman Empire (i.e. the Vatican). The buildings were cathedrals, chapels, abbeys, monasteries, etc. The idea of the church as a single building is new within the past thousand years.

    • #53 written by Russell Lee

      Church is man’s idea of a physical location or building. The Scriptures don’t bear that out. The church is an “assembly” or a “congregation.” No problem here. The church has also been called a “living body” as well. It is not unusual to have several words that define each other in English.

      • #54 written by Vasily Sculley

        Correct, the Church is not a physical location. However, neither is the Church some nebulous group of people broadly defined as “all of the followers of Christ.” The Church is defined as “All people who truly believe in Christ as He is; follow His commandments; teach the same Doctrine about God, Christ, and His salvation; and commune together in the same belief.”

        As Scripture said:

        John 14:15
        If ye love me, keep my commandments.
        Ephesians 4:4
        There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

        There is only one Church. It is not bound up in a place. It is bound up in one truth. That Church is the Pillar and Ground of the Truth (I Timothy 3:15). As it is the Pillar of Truth, we should build our lives around it. As it is the Ground of Truth, we should build our lives upon it. And as Christ is its Head, we should live upon and around it by remaining under Christ.

    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.

      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.

        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.

          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)

            The Word of God is not given for one mans personal interpretation! When a believer come to Christ, he or she should stay steadfast in the reading of the Word of God many times daily, meditating upon the Word. It IS THE HOLY GHOST who provides the REVELATION of Christ in the Word! “For the natural man discerneth not the things of God, for they are Spiritually discerned.” That is why, when the believer fails to read by and through the revelation of the Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit) they err in their understanding of the holy text.

            IT IS THE HOLY GHOST that reveals Gods truth! The deep mysteries of God. Satan knows the holy scriptures, but he lacks the revelation of the Holy Spirit in gaining understanding!

            As a bond servant to my Holy Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to whom belongs all the praise and glory, came to the revelation of the living Word of God by study in the 1611 version of the King James Bible! That is exactly why I will not accept any other version of the Word of God!

            Yes, the KJ version is written in the Old Kings English, which for many seems difficult to read and understand. I was not schooled above the 12th grade! I was never a student of any seminary or theological school, but was taught by the Holy Ghost through HIS revelation of the Word of God! When I asked my holy Lord if I should attend a Theological School or a Seminary, His answer to me was: “Am I not the author of your faith, I will teach you all that you need to know!” IS it not written: “God uses the foolish things of men to confound the wise”? And in another place: “The wisdom of God is foolishness to men.”

            First of all, you must read the Word of God with humility, contriteness of spirit, and with a prayerful and reverent heart! That is of paramount importance! ALWAYS: Pray for understanding before you “eat” of the Bread of Life! For is it not written: In the begining was the Word! And the Word was with God! And the Word was God! Later in the 14th verse, it says that the Word became Flesh. (John 1:1, 14)

            The Holy Ghost clearly declared to me that the Holy Bible is a LIVING spiritual entity! His term was exactly: “My Word is a Living thing.” It is food for the SOUL! Why do so many of Gods people fail to read it daily? Why do they fail to medicate upon the Word of God day and night?

            I will not declare that the newer translations are wrong. I will declare that the Almighty God and redeemer of my soul, revealed Himself to me by power and wonders in my study of the 1611 King James version of the Holy Bible! I grew to be able to recite exact text, quoting Chapter and Verse without the slightest hesitation!

            Beloved children, pray that the Author of our faith, grants you a “spiritual hunger” for the infallible and inerrant Living Word of God! Do not become discouraged, for that hope and faith that abides within you is of the Holy Ghost! Press in with your whole heart, with all of your strength, with all of your might, for our heavenly Father is faithful to give you whatsoever you ask of Him! If He is not foremost in your life, above all other desires, how will you know what to ask little ones?

          @Son of Adam…you said,”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?”
          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.

      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!

    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.

      If a person does wrong to you, you have a right to be angry, but you must not sin (ie, hate them or refuse to forgive them). Eventually, you must let things go and leave things to God, try to reconcile with the person, etc. Being angry at someone isn’t a sin. Being angry at them for the wrong reasons is sin. Reasons include them being the wrong color, them not doing things according to your will, etc. The irony is that the parable you mentioned is speaking for the aforementioned and proves that being angry against your brother for the wrong reason is sin.

    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 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.

        Aw man, I’m not a fan of getting into the conversation a year or more after the fact. Oh well, here goes!

        April, first off I would like to ask you why you consider yourself a “mature christian”. According to whom, and in contrast to whom? Are we not all CHILDREN, needing always to be further pruned to bear more fruit?

        Let me ask you this: BY WHAT NAME ARE WE SAVED? (Acts 4) I can GUARANTEE you it’s not Jesus (Gee-zus), as our modern day English Rendition of the Old English KJV would have us believe. Perhaps you should care for Greek, and much more so for Hebrew, since that was the world that the Son endured. Do you understand the importance of names in Hebrew, especially in stark contrast to our modern day english names?

        To believe that Satan is incapable of twisting the Holy Scriptures after thousands of years (how long do you think it took him to twist the Father’s words in the Garden of Eden?) is to be deceived. Of course the Father could have perfectly retained His Holy Scriptures, but wouldn’t that defeat the whole glorious pursuit of seeking him with our whole hearts? He wants to lead us out of deception. Won’t happen though until we are ready to be truly humbled and humiliated (trust me on this one!).

      God speaks through everything, good or bad. That doesn’t mean that modern versions are not satanic. Because God is merciful, he meets us where we are. But, he warns us of any evil we hold onto and we have to choose to listen to him and let go of the evil. The fallacy here is that you think all versions are good because God speaks through them. You don’t realize that he speaks through truth no matter where it is. Meaning, if something satanic hold some truth, God speaks through the truth. That doesn’t make the satanic thing godly.

    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 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.

    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??

    • #82 written by April

      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.

        April, many of the scrolls which you said the church (I am assuming by church you are referring to the church involved w/the KJV) rejected for centuries were not available to them. And you only support Robert’s statement of worshiping the bible…in particular, the KJV. I ask you this, and all the KJVO’s this question. If you were on a deserted island, w/no one else, no radio, no tv, no people, no churches, no books…NO BIBLE, 1) would your God be able to speak to you and 2) would He speak to you in KJV only? And how would you know God was speaking to you? Are we not all judging one another, myself included, when we start defending a version versus the gospel? I don’t know about you, but I trust my God to speak to me clearly, and He doesn’t speak to me in KJV only, and the orig Greek for anyone’s concern that was used, was everyday, common man’s Greek, not the “King’s Greek” if there was such a thing. And even the KJV does not say “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, & believe in your heart…IN THE KJV ONLY, you shall be saved.” Sorry. But I think our God is a bit above that, & is able to speak to anyone who uses any version, b/c if they are seeking the truth, then God is going to direct them, lead them, show them what to do, one day at a time. Gotta run. Appt.

        • #84 written by April

          Wrong! By the Church I mean all Christians from the apostolic times to the 17th century. Of course, God speaks through any source that has truth in it. That doesn’t mean the source is good. God is so merciful that he meets you where you are. That doesn’t excuse evil sources. Which is why he gave us KJV, which doesn’t compromise the truth. The more truth you have, the more free you are. It’s common sense to want to only read pure truth, which leads to growth and healing. I don’t worship a version or the bible. I worship God and accept all truths. If you were on that same island and were therefore forced to rely only on the Holy Spirit, he will tell you all truths. If you then picked up all versions, you would realize KJV was the only one that agreed with all that the Holy Spirit told you. Then you would realize that all of our arguments for the KJV is due to the fact that we do not tolerate lies. “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God”. How can that be true if you choose to hold onto something that came from humans who want to pervert truth?

            Hmmm, as I read more of your comments I keep wanting to reply! So I will.

            April, let me first off say that I see you are passionate for the truth. This is very admirable as Wayde has mentioned. However, I can tell you that the KVJ is NOT the translation that agrees with what the Holy Spirit has told me. You make some pretty daring dogmatic claims in these posts! I would be curious to find out your stance on the Trinity Doctrine, among others. I’ve now been lead to believe that 1 John 5:7 was included into the KJV as scripture when it shouldn’t have been. There are also other discovered corruptions like the KJV rendering of 1 Timothy 3:16. Do you realize and understand the implications that this has?

            Are we really to only read “pure truth”? Or to be guided to it, by whatever means He deems necessary?

            Much like Doug, I will leave you with a question:

            Which of the two do you believe to be HOLY, PERFECTED and AUTHORIZED (A.K.A given full authority) by the Father Himself to be His WORD/TRUTH?!

            1) The KJV
            2) The Word mentioned the Fourth Gospel Attributed to John Chapter 1, which took on flesh, was manifest as His Son, and then resurrected and is now sitting at His right hand on His throne?

            Your answer cannot be both, since there is only ONE TRUTH.

        Yes, you are right to say there is “only one truth”. I am only trying to explore possible misunderstanding of “God’s Truth” when I ask: surely Truth – ultimate Reality, the actuality of Life, Spirit – cannot be written in words, it’s beyond all that. The words, no matter how beautifully inspiring, simply POINT to the spirit, TELL us we need to be calm, let go of thought, etc, so that the natural, pre-religious, “God-given” reality in us can flourish.

    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.

    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!

      Amedeo,

      You have your own Ministries? I hope you aren’t making a name and a profit for yourself like the many “christian denominations” out in the world. Seriously, I hope you aren’t.

      I am glad you mentioned Satan’s tactics he utilized in the Garden of Eden.

      You also stated: “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″

      Since the KJV attributed the fourth gospel to John (which is not the Hebrew name given to the Apostle, one of the Sons of “Zebedee”), can you tell me that WITHOUT A DOUBT the author of the fourth gospel, the beloved disciple (not necessarily Apostle!), was “John”, and not perhaps someone else? I have been led to believe that it was not “John” who can be truthfully identified as the disciple whom “Jesus” loved, but rather a different *disciple*.

      I want to point out that the KJV does not highlight the importance of Hebrew names, as you have suggested. Can you help me understand if I am in error?

    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?

    • #105 written by April

      Because the Holy Spirit is in control, that’s how. Only the scrolls with the truth were copied by the Church for centuries. The other scrolls were made to indoctrinate lies into weak believers. The copy of the copy is accurate because it’s the only translation that stems from the God inspired scrolls. The other translations are translated from the heretical scrolls.

      I’m glad the Holy Spirit reveals the truth to us, so that those who are deceived by Satan choose to be deceived. The Holy Spirit convicts us all to follow the KJV and many people choose to ignore him in pursuit of what they want to hear. They prefer false doctrines because they tickle their ears and have feel good and thought for thought tampering. It’s a choice to give place to the devil or resist him. Most choose to give him place.

      I pray that those deceived by these newer translations see the truth and believe. God tells us in his word that there will be a falling away of the Church, and that many of the elect will follow false doctrines instead of the truth. The newer bibles are the false doctrines. They and their teachers paint a picture of a limited, impersonal God, the exclusion of the Holy Spirit in giving us the ability to understand, and the focus of relying on scholars, their commentaries and Greek instead.

      These are change as you like it bibles, scholars forever change the actual words into what they prefer to be on the pages and lie about it. They lie about their adding to and taking away from the bible and claim that the words they put in are the most accurate and use ancient Greek and Hebrew as a red herring. How do people know that those Greek and Hebrew words actually mean what the scholars claim they mean? Besides, they reference heretical scrolls and use excuses as to why the scrolls used by KJV are wrong. Why do we need to care for the Greek if we have a translation? If the meaning is lost, then why did God make all of these languages and the ability to translate? If the meaning is lost, shouldn’t we just make bibles in ancient Greek and Hebrew and learn them? The devil is chipping away the truth little by little, with the goal of having none left, and causing weakness, confusion, and blasphemy.

      Well said brother…I too have studied the KJV and I to love it. But it is full of errors and is full of church slant on topics taught in bible collages. It has been used to cover up and hid doctrines the church deem as untrue. There is truth in ALL translations and Gods word is preserved in all of them. To say that the KJV is the only translation that is word for word from Yahweh is a lie. All translations have been watered down full stop I have been writing christain books for over 20 years and I have to look at the hebrew texts to make sure they have used the correct words and often they have planted a word that was NOT even there and have distorted truth. Every bible student knows this. So please get real as regards to the accuracy of the KJV.

    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!

    Do not rely upon your own understanding beloved, but trust in the revelation of the Holy Ghost who is a Spirit. The Spiritual revelation of the Word of God brings understanding, but the man who rests upon his own understanding may soon find himself deceived by the doctrines of devils!

    Yahweh speaks through His spirit and HE sapeks through all the transaltions as He sees fit to revael His divine truth.. The KJV uses the name JEHOVAH which is used by the free masons and is NOT Yahwehs name. So there the KJV has 2600 errors alone.

    Just be careful about this KJV controversy. Is it not in the Devils tool kit, “Has God Really Said”? What type of witness to unbelievers could it possibly be, when Christians quibble about “Has God Really Said”? “When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future”. (John 16:13 NLT) So wouldn’t saying KJV 1611 only, be to say that we don’t trust His Spirit to lead us? Just something to think about.

  • #114 written by Tim

    If you’re so proud of the 1611 authorized King James then how come the text you have quoted looks nothing like that of the 1611 authorized text? Have you ever actually read an original 1611 manuscript? Wal-mart is selling reprints of them this year in honor of the 400 year anniversary, but somehow I think you’d find it rather difficult to middle through the pages of a language that looks even far more different than the one you have quoted on this site.

    I agree with #65……an unbeliever reading this thread would not want to become a Christian. This reminds me of the arguments people got into in the early church – “I’m of Apollos! I’m of Paul! I’m of Cephas!” etc, and Paul also warned them to avoid those who argued endlessly about the law. I will also avoid those who argue endlessly about which translation is correct. It’s just taking your mind off of what’s really important. Christ and Him crucified, and loving each other as Christ loved us.

    love you all my brothers but i get more out of the LOLcat bible than kjv, and while not perfect (heck even downright heretical at times, it’s collaboratively written) i get the gist of it easier and the heart of it more freely, then read the Holman just to make sure the theology is correct. if you think for one second that just because it sounds holy that it is, you’re being misled.

    It’s so sad……..people nitpick over this stuff in the western free world because they are just SO comfortable. While in the persecuted church in regimes like China, North Korea, the middle eastern countries, etc. ,they don’t even have any bibles! Bibles must be smuggled into them, when they have a Bible they have to hide it and read it in secret. Do you think they care what translation they have, no, they are just crying over the fact that they have the precious Word of God – or maybe a piece of it……and of course its NOT KJV because its not in English!! And if they are caught with it or caught as Christians then they get thrown into prison, see their children beaten to death in front of them, watch their churches get burned down. ALL translations say that Jesus will judge us by how we have treated the least of these OUR BROTHERS. Are we working to help our brothers and sisters in those countries? Or are we nitpicking about translations?

    This is NUTS!! First of all the only way the KJV is AUTHORIZED is because KING JAMES authorized it! NOT GOD! THe original HEbrew texts and Greek are the ORIGINAL! SHow me where GOD says the KJV is the only Bible! THe First version of the NIV was translated FROM THE ORIGINAL HEBREW AND GREEK and other sources like the dead sea scrolls which are MUCH older than KJV! COme on people! THe word of God will always speak to people. We have so many today who are next to illiterate and reading Shakespeare just frustrates them..so does the KJV! there is NOTHING wrong with a modern translation. AFter all… didn’t King James have the word translated so the english speaking people could read it for themselves??? This is the stupidist argument from people I’ve ever heard! It just keeps going on and on! With word meaning changes from the 1600′s the NIV is much more correct. Granted the newer publications of the niv has some bad interpretations, but the first printing were as correct as you can get! The questions posed as to what the niv compared to the kjv should raise a question….with word meaning changes..maybe the KJV is wrong in it’s teachings and have misled people today! and the KJV being translated from the Latin Vulgate (catholic) is NOT from the original either! I’ll take the one that was translated by MANY scholars of today from the ORIGINAL WORD OF GOD>>the HEbrew and Greek.! Many conservative christians at the time didn’t want to accept anything the church of england put out! Since its initial publication, the King James Version has undergone three revisions, incorporating more than 100,000 changes. The most careful and comprehensive revision was published in 1769. There are passages in the KJV that agree with the Septuagint and not with the Hebrew text. For example, 1 Samuel 5:9, the KJV says the emerods were in their “secret parts” but that is not in the Hebrew, but it is in the Septuagint. Even the Pilgrims did not use the “official” KJV..they preferred the Geneva bible. The argument is just crazy! IF someone is seeking the Lord, HE will direct them to Himself..even if it is a one sentence verse from the Living Bible! If God can speak thru a donkey he can use anything to speak to a person’s heart! IMO..the only true bible is the ancient texts in Hebrew and Greek..but how many of us can read that?? the NIV is directly translated from THAT..not a translation of a translation like the KJV!

    I have used the KJV all my life and love it, but cannot condemn people that use other translations. Satan uses these arguments to divide the brothern. while we are fussing over translations millions are headed for a terrable place called HELL. I have been on 22 trips to Romania and they use their Romanian translation (by the has been proven to be more accurate than the KJV). Are they missing out because they do not use the KJV ?
    I have been to many Nations in Europe and to Mexico
    are they wrong from not using the KJV ?? Don`t get me wrong the KJV is in my mind what I prefer. But I have met some of the most deciated christians that use other Translations,leading people to Christ, spreading the Gospel where ever they go, while others are fussing over translations.

    I started out with the KJV, and from there I went to others, NASB, RSV, NIV, etc, etc, and after reading a number of other translations, I returned to the KJV as my main Bible. However, I do keep a NKJV and the ArtScroll Stone Edition Tanach to check out some of the differences on occasion.

    Personally, I find the KJV full of error and endless conjecture. Its written in the Kings English like the probable team that cranked out Shakespheare used. Sorry for my bad grammar!
    Unless you have a teacher or bible guides…a person could end up very confused with the Greek and Hebrew translation.
    Lot was apparently vexed by the conversation of his neighbors…conversation is lifestyle…it wasnt the stuff they talked about!
    Three kinds of Love in the NT.
    Its not confusing to a Baptist, maybe.
    NIV is a good Bible too.
    Id say the willing heart is going to find God, no matter what we try…as some say the various nutters that came from the Great Reformation carried on Gods desire, albeit in their falliable human way. God will have his way. People are just tools. As someone who aspires to retranslate the Bible, I find the KJV limiting.
    It is annoying to hear them confuse the law of Moses on shellfish, which refers to priestly purification, and not a dietary law for the Israelites en masse. Some comedian had a go at that recently.
    I got all my knowlege just reading Strongs bible concordance and online studies. At 33, I spent maybe since age 19 in Bible study. Not that long to have a good grasp.

    The average English speaker can’t even read the King James 1611. The dialect is archaic and the spelling would win any English student an F. Better to have a translation in ACTUAL English. King James’ 1611 English no longer qualifies.
