The messages contained in the Bible are so clear to me now as I finally have the freedom to read a version of the Bible that I can comprehend. If this were my only evidence that the KJV is not a good Bible to read it would be enough for me.
I often wonder how many people in our world have their spiritual maturity stunted because of this legalistic philosophy about the KJV Bible.
Well, I don’t have to rely solely on personal experience to draw my conclusions from.You see, I was taught growing up that the KJV is a translation of the original text and all other translations are just translations of the KJV making them less accurate and reliable.
