The King James Version is a fine Bible and very accurate as translations go. It has some beautiful wording for some popular texts. It may be difficult for some to read, which is why it isn’t one of my top choices (As some have said, it is the perfect Bible for anyone who is 300 years or older). But it is useful along with versions like the ESV or NASB when studying challenging passages.
So I would never criticize anyone who prefers that version. But I would criticize those who insist that it is the only real version, that it was inspired while the Greek and Hebrew texts were not, etc.
I’ve heard of KVJ-only people but never encountered one here until the comment below. I am sad for him and how he has been deceived, is wasting his time on a non-essential issue and is causing unnecessary division in the body of Christ. I encouraged him to read the King James Only Controversy by James White, but I doubt he will. His childish, self-refuting taunts aren’t encouraging. It sounds like he’d love to listen to your arguments against him as long as you agree with him.
So, what do I think? I think where to make Gods “word” the truth and every man a lair. Yes that means you sweet Brother or Sister in Christ. I think you all should burn your devil catholic bibles and get the “scriptures” that the Holy Spirit authorized in English. No need for Greek or Hebrew. God only wrote one book. And it was translated and preserved perfectly in English as the “Authorized” King James Bible. How do I know. Its proven over and over to be without error and contradiction. it is the infallible, inerrant, perfect written words of the living God. Every word of it. Go ahead and see if you can prove otherwise. You can’t. No one ever has or ever will. What I pray for you my brethren that are stuck in an apostate modern fundamental church of today who will not endure sound doctrine (2 Tim 4:3) to please reveal to me what you believe when you read 2 Tim 3:16 in light of 2 Tim 3:15 and let me know if you are a “Bible believer”. Please someone respond on their belief in lite of those “scriptures”. You probably wont. Sad. We all need to come in together in one mind and be transformed according to his “word”. How can you do that when your not even reading from it. I can prove it in a secular court of law that most Christians on this topic lie. Jesus said if you love him you will keep his words. Anyone who can read can. Get the scriptures and let his spirit transform you and let His righteousness (not yours) His righteousness be revealed through you. I welcome to be corrected by my brothers in Christ according to Gods word but please don’t even attempt if you don’t have it or believe it. Sad that most Christians are stuck in today’s Laodicean type church and don’t feel the same. God bless. Even so, come Lord Jesus.
