In trying to approach the bible version debate from a different direction, I have listed three of the reasons why I hold to the KJVP (King James Preferred) position. For one thing, I believe that the English language was at its peak during the time the KJV was translated. Things deteriorate over time and language is no different. Surely no one would believe that today's English is as precise and exact as it was 400 years ago. That leaves two options, either settle for a bible that is written to today's standards or improve your vocabulary by learning the meanings of a few antiquated words. Another thing is that when a church uses one version, it promotes unity and a deep respect for the Word of God rather than continually comparing the different versions and trying to decide which one is correct. I have set in bible study groups where one version said something totally different for another. It was confusing trying to figure out which one was correct. Also, I do not believe that after nearly 400 years of using the KJV, God would suddenly allow "better" manuscripts to surface which would correct supposed errors found in the established version He had blessed for so long. There are other reasons for the KJVP position, but these, to me, are three of the most important ones. Let the attack begin!
