    Why the King James Bible is the Word of God

    The other day I went to Wal-Mart and noticed something strange. There is hardly any King James Bibles on the book shelves. All I see anymore is the NIV, NKJV and all the other new versions. A lot of people will tell you that those new versions are just the same, but easier to read. Whoever tells you that is either a liar or they do not know what is going on.

    The new versions are not just the same. They take away and add not only words, but complete verses! Read below in Luke 4:4 and guess what part the NIV takes out, “but by every word of God.” The devil is watering down the word of God with these new versions.

    Luke 4:4
    “And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.” KJV


    I will use the NIV for example, since it is one of the most sold bible versions in America. The NIV takes away 64,576 words and 17 complete verses. Here is another shocker, in 1988 Zondervan and the NIV was purchased by HarperCollins Publishers. HarperCollins publishes pro-homosexual books and I do not even want to name off the names of the book titles. If you want to check it out, go to their publishers’ website. Oh, and if that is not enough, HarperCollins also publishes a satanic bible! I could go on and on and expose those other new versions, but that would take forever. I will leave it up to you to study to see the major differences between the King James Bible and the new versions.

    The new “bibles” take away the blood of Christ out of Colossians 1:4. They take away the word “Lord” out of the dying thief’s mouth in Luke 23:42. In Isaiah 7:14, the new versions deny the virgin birth by replacing “virgin” with “young woman”. There are so many other examples that I could bring up, but it would take a too many pages to list them all. If you do not believe me, compare those above verses using the King James Bible and the NIV. The devil is using these new versions to destroy the truth in the word of God.


    Jeremiah 23:36
    “..for ye have perverted the words of the living God..” KJV



    People often tell me that it is hard for them to read the King James Bible. Well, I am here to tell you that those new versions are not easier than the King James Bible. Tests have proved that the King James Bible is on a lower reading grade level than the new versions. There are a bunch of times where in the new versions it is hard to read, but in the King James Bible it is crystal clear. If you think the King James Bible is hard to read it is because you are too lazy to study the word of God. All you need to understand God’s Word is the Holy Spirit and some of your time, not a new “bible”.

    Proverbs 8:8-9
    8 “All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them.
    9 They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.” KJV


    I am sure there are people thinking, “What about the originals?” There are no more originals. There are only copies of 100's of Greek texts and they all differ from each other. Greek “scholars” will try to tell you that we need to go back to the Greek to get the true meaning. That is a lie, all you need to do to understand the Bible is to read it in the correct context that it is suppose to be read. Next time someone tells you to go to the Greek, tell them to go preach a whole sermon in Greek(I am sure they cannot). All they do is quote a couple of Greek words and try to act smart. They tell you what their teachers told them and I believe their putting more faith in their interpretation than they put in the word of God.

    Another reason I believe the King James Bible is the word of God is because the manuscripts that the translators used were from Antioch. Let us see what the Bible says about Antioch…

    Acts 11:26
    "And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch." KJV


    There is a coincidence for you. The place where the King James Bible manuscripts are from is the same place where the first Christians originated. Maybe you are wondering about where the new versions get their texts. The new versions get their manuscripts from Alexandria, Egypt. Let us read what the Bible says about that place…

    Deuteronomy 17:16-17
    16 But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way.
    17 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold." KJV


    How about that, God led people away from Egypt. If God led people away from Egypt, there is no way I want a “bible” that gets the manuscripts from a place like that.


    Some of you are probably thinking that the King James Bible is only a translation and translations cannot be perfect. I want to show you in scripture where translations are perfect three times.

    2 Samuel 3:10 "To translate the kingdom from the house of Saul, and to set up the throne of David over Israel and over Judah, from Dan even to Beersheba." KJV

    It was God who translated Saul's kingdom to David.

    Colossians 1:13 "Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:" KJV

    God translated Christians into the kingdom of Jesus Christ.

    Hebrews 11:5 "By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God." KJV

    God translated Enoch that he should not see death.

    So you see, a translation can be perfect. I believe God was involved in the translating of the King James Bible because the translators referred themselves as "poor instruments", while all the new version translators boast. God will use people when they have a humble heart. Oh, and isn't weird how all the other translations compare themselves to the King James Bible? Why not compare themselves with each other? It is obvious that the devil is attacking God's word, the King James Bible.


    Did you know that the only Bible without a copyright is the King James Bible? All the other versions have copyrights. What are copyrights made for? Money. What does the Bible say about the love of money?

    1 Timothy 6:10
    “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” KJV


    If your King James Bible has a copyright, do you know why it does? Because of the side notes, dictionary, concordance and etc. If you buy a plain King James Bible without any notes or anything, you will have no copyright. Anyone can freely reprint the King James Bible without getting into copyright trouble. The reason I bring this up is because the Bible says…

    2 Timothy 2:9
    “..the word of God is not bound.” KJV


    Did you see that? It says “the word of God is not bound.” I do not believe that the word of God should be bound by human copyright and that is why I am against the new “bibles”.

    Some people bring up that the King James Bible was copyrighted by the English Crown, but this was only done so others would not misprint it. This copyright was done to protect the text and was not done for profit. Another thing to know is that this copyright has no effect on us today, unlike the new versions' copyright that does and are definitely for profit.


    I believe the King James Bible is inspired by God. I believe without a shadow of a doubt that God had something to do with the King James Bible. Did you know that the King James Bible was the seventh English Bible made? Read these below verses carefully.

    Psalms 12:6-7
    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." KJV


    You see that? The words of the Lord are pure, purified SEVEN times, and then God goes on to say that He would preserve His words FOREVER. God said He would preserve His words forever and I will believe Him over any religious “scholar”. Oh, and the fact that the King James Bible is the SEVENTH English Bible and God said His Words are purified SEVEN times is just a coincidence.

    1. The Tyndale Bible, 1534
    2. Coverdale Bible, 1535
    3. Matthews Bible, 1537
    4. The Great Bible, 1539
    5. The Geneva Bible, 1560
    6. The Bishops’ Bible, 1568
    7. The Authorized Version of the Bible, 1611


    Here is a question. Out of all the languages, why did God use English to preserve His word? Why not Mandarin Chinese since it is the most spoken language in the world? The answer is simple. God did not use Mandarin Chinese because most the people in China are not even Christian. God wants His word to be spread. Therefore, He used the language that most Christians in the world speak in, English.

    I believe the King James Bible is the word of God because it was published under the authority of a king, unlike the modern new versions. It makes perfect sense for the word of God to be translated under the authority of a king, rather than a democracy. King James wanted the Bible to be printed in English, so the common people could all read the Bible whenever they wanted.

    Ecclesiastes 8:4
    "Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?" KJV


    Did you know England holds absolute time and location? Zero degrees longitude is located in England. If that is true, why would England not hold absolute truth? Now there is something to think about.

    Dear reader, those were some of the reasons I believe the King James Bible is the word of God. Here is just another fact to consider. Over the last 400 years God has used the King James Bible to save the lost and guide Christians. No other translation in history has done as much as the King James Bible has done for the cause of Christ. That leads me to say this, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”

    If you have a King James Bible, thank God for it everyday. It is a blessing for us to have the very words of God in our own hands and we should thank Him for that. If you are reading this and you read one of the new versions, I do not hold a grudge against you, but I plead with you to pray and study about this subject. This is a serious issue that needs to be looked at and not ignored. People can get saved by reading a different language bible and the new versions, but if a reader wants to become a true student of the word of God, I stress for them to get a King James Bible.


    Love in Christ and God Bless

        You can buy a bible in US supermarkets.

        Wow.

        You can barely buy a bible in a regular bookshop over here. You go the biggest bookstore you can find, they might have a few tucked away into a corner somewhere. In the "Mind Body Soul" section, next to the satanic bible, and how yogic tantra can revolutionise your chakras.

        You have no idea how lucky you are!
        Please could everyone pray for Mieke and Charles.

          Welcome to BibleForums... But I hate to be the one to break it to you, the KJB is not perfect. No Bible translation is perfect, because it's just that: a translation.

                Cody,
                With you being so zealous for the 1611 KJV in your first post,

                Why is it that none of the above verses you listed are from the 1611 KJV?

                Those quotes are most likely from the 1850 KJV; but definitely not the 1611 KJV. Kinda diminishes your argument, using the wrong year.

                  I always was told that the NIV is not a translation per say but a paraphrase and should be read as such.
                  I do not come into this pulpit hoping that perhaps somebody will of his own free will return to Christ. My hope lies in another quarter. I hope that my Master will lay hold of some of them and say, “You are mine, and you shall be mine. I claim you for myself.” My hope arises from the freeness of grace, and not from the freedom of will.

                    I'm not an expert but most likely the verses quoted by Cody were from the 1769 Baskerville spelling and wording revision of the 1611 version.
                    The 1769 edition put it into modern English without changing any major words or sentence structure.
                    Most of us would grow weary from trying to read the kings language of 1611.
                    I love the King James Bible. To me, it's living words. Maybe just because I'm familiar with it and have never used anything else because there just isn't any need to.
                    I really have a problem with those who say because we don't have the originals we don't have the Word of God.
                    God is able to preserve His Word. He's done this through translations. It's our duty to be in tune with God enough to know which translation through which He has preserved His Word.
                    Holy men of God can still speak and write--
                    In Christ,

                      Here a dumb question for you (sorry) but what is the pope doing over there? why is he allowing this to happen...no bibles in the stores! Ok maybe a new thread on this needs to be started. Here we were all upset because some hotels and motels were taking the bibles out of their rooms!

                      God bless

We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; We drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; We drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated?" - D A Carson

                          Maybe it's just me but I can't stand reading the KJB. The language is hundreds of years old and as a result bogs me down in thees, thous, thines, eths and other old language. When the New Testement was first written it was written in the everyday language of the time.

                          No translation is perfect. But when it comes down to practicality and being user friendly, the newer translations are a better bet than James V's translation.

                          Personally I'm looking forward to Colin Urquart's translation of the New Testement when it comes out next year.

                            Me neither..Jesus didn't speak old english..He didn't speak english at all in fact! While I was raised on the KJV and had to memorize some bible passages that way ...and some do sound better at least to me in KJV my daily reading bible is most certainly not KJV. Its very difficult to read since people just don't talk that way anymore. It was translated in old english simply because that is how they spoke at the time...but there are alot of errors in it too. I can't even read Shakespeare and understand it!

                            God bless
