Why King James Only?


Recommended Posts

  • Independent Fundamental Baptist

I must apologize for the tone of my post. I read most of the posts and it was tiresome to see the tone of some of those. I did not consider the whole matter and skipped past the posts closer to the end. My point was well stated by many others and I did not need to add to them. The last post is very clear.

Ok. It's been said in many ways, but let's try it again. BACK TO TOPIC, which is "why King James Only". If you do not have a post in regards to WHY YOU ARE ONLY KING JAMES, stop posting in this thread. Also, if you are posting about why you are only KJB, do not jab at someone or bring up the name of someone you know who isn't.

I hope that's good and clear.

The question does go past that initial question with - "or if you aren't why not?"

And as such I answered with that part.

Happy Fathers Day fellas!

Actually, you went beyond answering it. Hence the stop posting...

I know this is an older thread that I am "reviving"...but I feel the need to put my $0.02 in here as a newcomer to the IFB 

I started with the NIV, went to the NASB then to the ESV then back to the NIV...I will say that now that I have started with the KJV, I am rapidly becoming a "fan" of it in an enormous way. It speaks to my spirit in a way that no other bible has. I cannot explain it other than it quickens me and forces me to really stop and THINK and PRAY about what I am reading...it is no longer like reading just a book, it is so much deeper than that. 

The KJV stirs something that is beyond what the more modern versions do.

I agree.  The KJV is not merely the best version that is available; it is the perfectly preserved words of God as He has promised us:

(Psalms 12:6-7) "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. {7} Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever."

When we hold a King James Bible, we can be assured that it is just as perfectly His words as the originals and may be treated and studied as such.  That is the difference between the KJV and all the rest.  It is the difference between a real Rolls Royce and matchbox cars made from chocolate and arsenic.

I was reading John, in the 10th to 15th chapters...and although I've read it many times, reading it now it's different...Much different, there's a whole other layer to the words. Kind of like the difference between a cracker and a scrumptious, multi-layered ice cream sandwich...layers of texture, meaning, visual pictures. Amazing!

(yes, I use food metaphors because I'm on a low-carb diet)

It is glorious, isn't it?

Don't worry, we won't make you eat your words.

      Havent been on for years, but have been studying with Jews for Jesus weekly Bible Study which has been wonderful.  Not sure any of your views on that group, but if you are from a Jewish background a great place to be grounded in the word and to learn.

      I am a researcher and writer at Watch Unto Prayer which I started 25 years ago. On this website there are many well-documented articles and audio programs by myself and other researchers whose ministry is to expose the endtime apostasy of the Church. Now more than ever Christians need information in order to identify and avoid the various deceptions that are in nearly all the churches.
      My husband and I attended the IFB Bible Baptist Church of James Knox a couple of years ago. We left the church after we were informed by the assistant pastor that we were not allowed to express views to other members that do not agree with the views of the pastor and leaders of the church. We were not introducing heresy but expressing our views concerning the State of Israel. We had never been in a church which forbade private conversations on issues where there are diverse opinions. This we recognized as cultlike control of church members. To inform Christians, my husband, who is also a researcher and writer, started a website on the subject: Zionism Exposed: A Watchman Ministry.

      Brother Tony, I read your reply on Anderson, I know you all think I'm argumentative but, when you don't agree.....the first thought I had is, I wish you would introduce me to the guy that hasn't sinned, maybe David, that had a man killed so he could commit adultery, yet, he was & is a man after Gods own heart, or maybe Paul the guy that persecuted and had Christians killed, or maybe Richg or Kent H, or even you ! I used to listen to personalities also when I was younger but today and for some time, my only concern is, does it line up with scripture & to me its hilarious that you think "I'm in a fix" LOL, I interpreted what we've discussed perfectly, not because I'm smart, but because with an open mind to things of God, its an easy read.
