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. Advertisement: A Brief History of the KJV It’s well known that we only have fragments of the original manuscripts.
All current versions of the Bible are simply English translations of first translations.
When I brought this up to my pastors, teachers, parents, leaders, etc.
I would get the answer that it is for this reason that I should be in a good IFB church so that the Pastor could explain what the words in the KJV meant.
When I left the IFB around age 25 I found out some valuable information that flies in the face of the IFB and their KJV only stance.
Personal experience became the fuel that burned the fire within me.
In 1534 The Tyndale’s Revised and Corrected Bible was completed.I started reading the New International Version (henceforth NIV) and after I got over my initial guilt which was highly unfounded, I actually understood the Bible for the first time in my life.Things were jumping off the pages at me and I was like a sponge, absorbing all the information I could.I simply took it upon faith like every other teaching that came from the IFB.
Like other IFB teachings, I was always troubled by the fact that I had a difficult time reading and understanding the KJV.
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.
