I study Greek and Hebrew, says Kathie Lee Gifford on Daystar. My thought, why? Do you like to waste your time? Are you fascinated by new meanings discovered by modern rabbis?
I already know the answer to those questions, but I’m not sure she does. Why study Greek and Hebrew? I know I can’t do any better than the Holy Ghost did through learned men in translating the KJV. When modern pastors say something like do you know what it really says in the Greek. My immediate thought is yes, whatever the King James Version says it is.
Don’t let pastors or rabbis who think they know better than God knock your biblical foundation, which is sure in the KJV. They like to come up with new stories and new meanings to keep their followers interested. The Bible tells of the ancient Athenians in Acts 17:21 KJV
who …spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing. 2 Timothy 4:3 predicts people will have itching ears and will not keep sound doctrine.
I was wondering why God blessed the English speaker with a perfect translation in the KJV? I think that question is similar to why did he choose the Jews first? The answer is that was his desire.
