Accurate Bible translations


Recommended Posts

No.

No modern translation has as rigorous a translation process and uses the correct text to translate from.

Even the NKJV is more than an update and referenced the Wescott and Hort texts.

I agree. The NKJV is a far second to the KJV but the notes are pretty much just a running smear campaign to the reader on why the KJV is flawed and they should stop reading their NKJ version and just go out and buy a "superior" version like the ESV. One is hard pressed to actually find a beneficial note in it. There are a few custom "KJV for the 21st century" that are online that attempt to update grammar, spelling, and the occasional word, but I have not found the need to investigate them. I think its better just to stick with the 1769 update of our 1611 KJV and then get a KJV friendly dictionary for the occasional word that you may not understand. Its much more beneficial that we update our personal vocabulary than always be searching for the "latest and greatest" bible.

The King James is all one needs Ma'am to grow in grace.  Just as you learned to walk, to ride a bike, to talk and to write, a regenerated heart will learn to read, and to learn, and to be discipled by the Holy Spirit, with God's preserved Word, the King James Bible.

The King James Bible is the perfect word of God in English. Every other English translation I have ever seen takes away, adds and/or changes words. There are many helps out there if you are have difficulties with some of the words. Also, most people read their Bibles too fast anyways, so having to take time to read it is a good thing.

      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.
