I've read these KJV vs modern version threads for over 2 years. I've gone back and forth on both sides. I now own 4 different Bible translations (KJV, NKJV, NIV, HCSB) plus a few others. My pastor uses a NKJV, I bought a really nice NKJV Study Bible. It's VERY nice..BUT...I HATE it!........has NOTHING to do with accuracy or doctrine changes or anything like that. It just doesn't SOUND like Scripture to me! I grew up with the KJV and YES, I struggled with the words sometimes. But, the Bible in the KJV will ALWAYS be what Scripture "sounds" like to me! Example, I love "Gone with the Wind", my favorite book/movie of all time. I can tell you what Scarlett's gonna say before she says it. Now, you can re-write/re-film that book/movie and not change a thing as far as the storyline, just change the wording a little. At the end, have Rhett say to Scarlett "Really, Scarlett, I don't care anymore!" ....or.......in the scene where Scarlett cries" I'll NEVER go hungry again!"...........have her say, "I promise myself I'll always have food!"means the same thing as what was originally said...........but.........it's just NOT "Gone with the Wind"! That's the way I feel about the KJV. I KNOW other versions are God's Word (well, I'm not a fan of the NIV), but it's just not the same. Thanks for reading my "rant".
