God promised to preserve His words
(Psalms 12:6-7; Matthew 24:35). There has to be a preserved copy of
God's pure words somewhere. If it isn't the KJV, then what is it?
It has no copyright. The text
of the KJV may be reproduced by anyone for there is no copyright
forbidding it's duplication. This is not true with the modern
The KJV produces good fruit (Matthew
7:17-20). No modern translation can compare to the KJV when it comes to producing
good fruit. For nearly four hundred years, God has used the
preaching and teaching of the KJV to bring hundreds of millions to
Christ. Laodicean Christians might favor the new versions, but the Holy
The KJV was translated during the
Philadelphia church period (Revelation 3:7-13). The modern versions
begin to appear rather late on the scene as the lukewarm Laodicean
period gets underway (Revelation 3:14-22), but the KJV was produced way
back in 1611, just in time for the many great revivals (1700-1900). The
Philadelphia church was the only church that did not receive a rebuke
from the Lord Jesus Christ, and it was the only church that
"kept" God's word (Revelation 3:8).
The KJV translators were honest in
their work. When the translators had to add certain words, largely due
to idiom changes, they placed the added words in italics so we'd know
the difference. This is not the case with many new translations.
All new translations compare
themselves to the KJV. Isn't it strange that the new versions never
compare themselves to one another? For some strange reason they all
line up against one Book--the AV 1611. I wonder why? Try Matthew
The KJV translators believed they were
handling the very words of God (I Thessalonians
2:13). Just read
the King James Dedicatory and compare it to the prefaces in the modern
versions. Immediately, you will see a world of difference in the
approach and attitude of the translators. Which group would YOU pick for
translating a book?
The KJV is supported by far more
evidence. Of over 5,300 pieces of manuscript evidence, ninety-five
percent supports the King James Bible! The changes in the new versions
are based on the remaining five percent of manuscripts, most of which
are from Alexandria, Egypt. (There are only two lines of Bibles: the
Devil's line from Alexandria, and the Lord's line from Antioch.)
No one has ever proven that the KJV is
not God's word. The 1611 should be considered innocent until proven
guilty with a significant amount of genuine manuscript evidence.
The KJV exalts the Lord Jesus Christ.
The true scriptures should testify of Jesus Christ (John
5:39). There is no book on this planet which exalts Christ higher
than the King James Bible. In numerous places the new perversions
attack the Deity of Christ, the Blood Atonement, the Resurrection,
salvation by grace through faith, and the Second Coming. The true
scriptures will TESTIFY of Jesus Christ, not ATTACK Him!
