It is not neccessary to defend the KJ, just as it is not neccessary for a soldier to defend his weapon. In battle when he fires his weapon it will be effective, on the other hand if it is not a real weapon it will be of non effect. As children we used to play war and go "bang! bang! you are dead" and the one "shot" would fall down and play dead. With the modern versions a lot of people are "playing dead", this is why there is no spiritual life in many lives of professing Christians. The Bible needs no defense as it is a weapon of offense to those who are lost and a defense against a sinful life for those who are saved. Many are caught up in sin because they don't use the weapon of offens against sin in the life. Bible study and prayer. Too many depend on man's books to feed while they should be feeding on the word of God. Many here quote books written by men to attack the KJV. How foolish. As for me I will stand with the KJV and trust the "old book" to nourish my soul and prvide me with the weapon for warfare against Satan. Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
