For all the arguments that we should prefer the King James Bible....
I am increasingly finding more solid evidence that the extra verses and parts of verses in the King James were NOT in the original manuscripts....to be HONEST, looking at a bible in modern English just MOTIVATES me to read more of it...and in the end the greatest benefit is a just having a bible you are willing and motivated to read and study.
With modern translations some are better than others. I stay away from paraphrase translations and use real translations.
Do I feel bad if I offend people by going against their traditions. NO!!! NOT AT ALL!!! I simply pray for them to awaken.
