  1. I do try to remember to quote only KJV around my mother in law, but some verses I have memorized in NIV. I try to be understanding but it is hard, because we have different view points.
  2. I personally think they both have mistakes, simply because words lose meaning in translations and also, they both were translated by sinful humans. Of course God is not limited by our sin and His power can easily be seen when I (and many others) read either translation.
  3. But see... I do love the King James. I use it more than my NIV.... I do not accept the KJ as the only true Bible.
  4. I came on this site looking for the reasoning behind my mother-in-laws thinking (She is a strict KJV only) and I have been accused of being corrupt and not a strong Christian for daring to actually enjoy not just KJ but also NIV. I am not sorry I do not think the same way you do. I came here to be surrounded by people who think like my mother in law to get a better understanding. Most of you have been wonderful and I have learned much. But I have also been hurt by the things some people have said.
  5. My mother homeschooled all of us and one of her jobs was to help other families find a good homeschool group near them. A muslim family (they had three young boys) came to our house. My father told us to be very, very careful around them and not mention our faith (my father did for us, explaining that we are a Christian family) It was interesting to learn that when muslim boys turn 13 or 16 (so long ago I can't remember the age) they go to their home country and are taught to hate the US.... then they are sent back here.
  6. O For a Thousand Tongues To Sing :)
  7. Of course I still sin... don't we all?
  8. I just guess we can agree to disagree. I see Gods word clearly in both King James and NIV. and I know others don't. But now I do have a much better understanding as to why people prefer King James. You have brought up a lot of good points, some that I have never heard :)
  9. I did. But like anything on the internet you can't take it everything seriously (I do trust the links you sent are accurate, no doubt in my mind) so I took my own Bibles. I still do not see contradiction, maybe I am to simple minded to see?
  10. King James says: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." NIV says: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." Both clearly say the way to salvation... Every verse I compare KJ and NIV with never ever contradict one another.
  11. I have read those links I appreciate them a lot.
  12. yes I agree, just like the Mormons also translate their bible to fit their cult. But King James or NIV, they both agree that Jesus Christ is Lord, only His blood can save us.... they both agree on that. The wording is just different, one is old English one is modern English... I just still don't see why people say one Bible is right... others are wrong. (I should re word that... I do see why... I still can't wrap my head around it)
  13. Jehovah Witness' are a cult... in no way the same as Christians... I do not know about any of their books that they use so I can't say what I want to say because I would not be able to back it up.
  14. We already asked for repentance... when we both accepted Christ as Savior. We read Gods Word together and are both continually challenged in His Word. We do not reject His Word at all... never.
  15. I am not in anyway trying to be prideful, I am just simply trying to understand why some Christians are strictly KJ only and reject all other translations... among other questions I have. Healthy debate is not wrong it it? I have taken all that has been said very seriously. The links you all provide are wonderful. How am I being stubborn? I have my views and I am trying to see others in better light. No my husband is not on here. He likes the King James and others to. Just like I do.
