I used to be KJB only. Now I'm not, although for personal reading I tend to turn to it simply because I love the poetic sound and lilt of old English. However, when I want to study, I tend to use multiple versions. The Darby is my personal favorite, but it's not in print, which makes me sad. However, it's fun to use my hubby's parallel Bible which has four versions. I'm distressed at the discord among Christians over Bible versions. I can understand the disdain for paraphrased versions that are used in place of translated ones. However, I grow weary of brothers and sisters treating me and others like second-class believers or even questioning my faith, the implications that we're being sinful and doing wrong by using versions that use the same words we use today rather than a version of English that is outdated and where words in it hold different meanings from the same words today. The same thing happens with music. Singing new songs gets me and others accused of listening to evil music and being worldly. Why makes tunes from 50 years ago anymore righteous than tunes from 5 years ago? I'm just tired of coming across people that are really decent and seem like wonderful brothers and sisters in Christ, only to suddenly feel punched in the face when they come on here and suddenly make a post that bashes me based on their personal ideals of what makes one Bible right and one Bible wrong or claim that their music and praise in song to God makes God happy but some of my music and praise in song makes God angry. Why do this? Why treat other Christians like this? It hurts. Yes, even though it's over the internet, it hurts because I come here for fellowship and believe it or not, I do care about some of the posters, do pray for people here and I've been here a long time. So when you get familiar with some people for ten years, it really is painful to suddenly come across them mocking your life even if they're not speaking directly to you. Christians are family no matter where they are. I can understand it coming from new believers, from those who haven't studied. I used to do the same and have deep regret for the way I treated people in the past over these issues. I spent far too much time clinging to my position and finding ways to defend it instead of using that time to find the truth of the matter. I well remember panicking when someone came close to proving me wrong and going all out to "win" the argument, only looking at my side and not even bothering to try to see the other side. Time and God helped me with that. Yet those aren't the only ones doing this. I've been blind-sided more than a couple times by people I've posted along-side for years on here that have been believers for 2, 3, 4 times longer than myself and that I've respected and looked up to. I just needed to vent that. It would be nice to get some feedback on WHY. Not another thread that's a long argument and fighting and bickering. Don't talk in general. Please address ME. Use my name and tell me why using these other translations and listening to new praise music and lyrics makes me either a poor Christian or not one at all.
