It concerns me to see "believers arguing over the translations, even to the point of anger and profanity. When I see this, it leads me to believe the that satan has accomplished exactly what he sarted out to do, water down, weaken and pervert God's precious word and divide believers. God is not the author of confusion. This issue should never become a test of fellowship. The issue in and of itself has absolutely nothing to do with salvation. I have been a student of the bible since I was saved in 1970 and, being aware of the thousands of differences in the 100+ english translations, was forced to ask myself these questions: 1. If we say that the bible was verbally inspired and preserved only in the original writings, and we do not have a perfect word today, how strong is our foundation? Did He give His perfect word only to the original writers and then lose it? 2. Is God not able to preserve His word, perfect for us today, in every "jot and tittle"? Why would He want not desire for us to be fully equipped for battle, using a "sword" of the finest steel. 3. Is it possible that satan could have worked through brilliant but ungodly men over the centuries to corrupt the very word of God for the purpose making the word less effective and causing us, His created, to fight and argue among ourselves? Could that be possible? Gods Word is of vital importance in our development as blood-bought believers and we need to take it seriously. It is true that many have been led to the Lord after reading the perversions and I praise God for that. We need to understand that God's Word, in and of itself, has absolutely no saving ability. It is one of three methods by which God speaks to us. It is of vital importance in our growth as believers. Praise God, He works IN SPITE of the way man has mutilated His Holy Word. I am a simple salesman, saved by grace. I do not understand Greek or Hebrew. I have never been to bible school, except in my own study times and those held in our church. The God of the Bible did not expect all of his children to be Greek or Hebrew scholars to know and understand that He is able to preserve His word, perfect. He has done so in the KJV. Every word is exactly the way He wants it do be. Please don't let the "educated" tell you otherwise. The KJV is sufficient for me. It has stood the test of time. From 1611, when 50+ godly men got together to bring us this translation, until the late 1800's, it was THE BIBLE. Following that, until today, there seems to be anew "Bible' rolling off the presses each year. Lets stop arguing over it and begin telling our unsaved neighbours, family members, co-workers about what God has done for us and what He can do for them. God revealed Himself in a mighty way on September 11. The name of God is on the lips of people who, prior to 9/11, only spoke of Him in profanity. Today they want Him to bless them and protect them from terrorism, while we still kill 1.4 million babies in the womb each year. America has considerable blood on her hands. Read Isaiah 1: 15 and learn how God dealt with another nation who took their prayers to Him in desperation. The end is drawing near folks. Time is short and we need to get lost souls saved. End the bickering and get back to the PURE 100% word of God.....the time-tested KJV. It will never die.
