Believing in one Bible.
RE: does the use of more than one Bible cause confusion?
I voted NO!
On the contrary, as the KJV translators stated in the prologue to the first edition of the KJV of the Bible, translations, even the "meanest" of them are the Word of God and are good because they allow us to see the "sense" of the Scriptures.
Using multiple versions in my personal devotions actually enhances my understanding of the biblical text. I would heartily recommend it!
However, I do think it's possible for some level of confusion to exist in a church where the bible version being preached from changed drastically and frequently (by drastically I mean going from a FE to DE or paraphrase and back and forth). I think it is helpful to the peoples understanding to stick with one version for preaching or atleast a version of the same style (FE or DE). Some people in the pew are not good at following along in other versions..and it can lead to a certain amount of confusion and distraction for them.
Yes that is true kman, thanks.
does the use of more than one Bible cause confusion?
Only for KJV-onlyists, but we know they're confused already.
got to agree with kman...using several translations enhances my study of the word of God.
Sorry, HomeBound, but the KJVO arguement just doesn't cut it.
