Regarding the King James Version of 1611, give some thought to three questions:
When a Bible gives the number 7 a prominent ingredient, is it a coincident or does it bespeak God’s approval?
What Bible version went through a 7 fold purification process?
Has any other Bible gone through 7 revisions to correct spelling, punctuation, and capitalization errors?
These three questions are only a sampling of the “7” ingredients that distinguishes the King James Version of 1611. Read “Looking For The Lamp” by Dr. Charles A. Barrier to see the complete picture and analysis of the King James Version of 1611 as the source for God’s Word in English.
I was raised with the King James Version of 1611 as the Bible, but as a young adult moved away from this Bible as God’s true Word. Later in life, churches I attended used the NIV. I did not know the true story behind its inception and its corrupting of what was in the KJV. After reading “Looking For The Lamp” by Dr. Charles A. Barrier, I am convinced that there is only one true source for God’s Word in English. It is the King James Version of 1611. To me it is the only BIBLE. As a believer, one Bible verse has been what I stand by and try to live by. It is Joshua 14: 15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
I believe that using the KJV is how I can best do that.
