  • I have switched to the NIV Bible

    After years and years of reading, and being a fan of the KJV, i have turned the tides and now read the NIV. I actually like the NIV much better. I realize no edition of the bible is the "true" bible, and after doing alot of research I have realized the KJV is the most deceiving version out there.
    I'm astounded, bewildered, confused, baffled when people tell me there are 75 million people in America that are filled with the Holy Ghost and we're the most rotten nation on earth. "Leonard Ravenhill"

    I would have to disagree that the KJV is "deceiving." I like modern translations. NIV is close to the bottom of my list of translations, but I do not oppose it.

      I started out with the KJV back in the 60's when I was a kid. There is nothing deceiving about it; it just uses out of date English and perhaps not the best original texts. Today I use mostly the NASV and NKJV; I just never really liked the NIV, though I will occasionally see how it reads.

        What is your favorite modern version?

          What would you consider a modern version? Like after what year exactly? Me personally I enjoy many versions but I would say that the NASB is my go-to choice.

            My choice is either NASB or TLB. They are literal translations into the modern language. The NIV is a "Nearly Inspired Version"

                    Isn't that a very important comment really? I for one, have memorized many verses over many years in NKJV. If I am given another translation I am almost lost finding the verses. So I preach and study in NKJV and from time to time I make my point I use other versions.

                    Whatever makes it easier for you, use it. I too have lots of notes and colors from all the years I have used the Bible I use today. I can't see myself departing from it

                      I enjoy it as well. It was my first ever bible translation.

                        My fav version is the NKJV. Next is the ESV. I like the HCSB version also, I have that Bible in the door of my truck so I always have a Bible handy no matter where I travel. Plus it's small enough I can stick it in my back pocket.

                          I have no clue, that is what I am asking. I know alot of people think the NASB is the best "modern" bible out there. I have never even heard of the NASB version. But I will find out now.

                            Well just in case you have a hard time finding it, it's the New American Standard Bible.

                              The one problem I do have with the NIV version, it feels like I am reading a kids story book. It's almost written to simplified, or "dumbed down"
