Choose Wisely

In Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade he must choose the Holy Grail, the cup Jesus drank from at the Last Supper. If he chooses poorly he will wither, shrivel, and die. If he chooses correctly he will live.

Today we have to make the same choice. Do we drink from God’s word or do we drink from a cup of pollution and corruption that could kill us?

So, as we search for the correct cup to drink from let us choose wisely. The King James Version Holy Bible is the inerrant word of the Lord. It was translated under the supervision of the Holy Ghost. How do we know this?

  • Faith
  • It was done under a King appointed by God. Daniel 2:21
  • It was authorized. It says so on the inner cover. No other bibles even make this claim.

Why trust your eternal salvation to translation made by the hubris of men. All other English versions were made by men who said in their heart, I think I know better or I understand Hebrew or Greek better than the learned men that worked on the KJV translation. Hebrew is today a revived language and the Greek has had 2,000 years to change in meaning. Don’t put your trust in new found meanings by men claiming to be Rabbis. We as Christians have one Rabbi, the Lord Jesus Christ. Further, I don’t need Greek translations made in the last 50 years when I put my trust in God’s authorized translation done over 400 years ago.

Other translations might be shiny and new, but if you speak English and have chosen the KJV you have chosen wisely.

It’s All English to Me

Which translators should we trust?

The King James Version Holy Bible was translated under the authority of King James of England. If you read the Bible you likely know Kings are appointed by God.

Daniel 2:20-22 KJV

Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: [21] And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: [22] He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

The work of translation is complete in the KJV.

Why do I glorify the KJV? Two reasons. First, I want you to use the KJV as I do. Secondly, many preachers today use statements such as the Greek originally says or other translations say… .

What are they really saying. When preachers say the Greek originally says they are quoting from a supposedly direct translation Greek Bible. Keep in mind this Bible was written by modern translators. Do you want to put your faith in authorized translators or in unauthorized ones?

Some preachers say another translation puts it thusly. What are they saying? They are saying the KJV is insufficient or wrong. It is nothing more than an attempt to sound learned and express mastery of the subject.

Understanding the KJV can be difficult enough without trying to re-translate the Greek and Hebrew, but it is the translation I trust. As a follower of Christ I urge you to do the same.
