What I mean is the VERSION of Bible you read. Years ago I used to pick up my Dads King James Bible and never got anywhere with it. I was discouraged and unable to acquire the messages because of all the unfamiliar old English words. I tried so hard to understand but it was a struggle. Then a few years later a Baptist Church gave me a NIV version and the journey began! I was able to understand the message and meanings of scripture and I started to grow in my faith. Now this is by no means a attack on the KJ Bible. I just wonder if I am alone in struggling with the English used in it. If it wasn't for the NIV bible I received I may have never become a better and more knowledgable Christian. As of recently I got another version....the New King James Bible. It also has plain English that even a goof like me can understand and I have enjoyed reading it as well. My Church uses the King James Bible only during service. Even hearing it read aloud I still can't fathom some of the words. So I decided to bring along my NIV and just read along in terms I can understand. So has anyone else had a certain bible version that has impacted your spiritual growth?
