Now I'm not here to argue or debate but simply to offer you a challenge. Do you have the courage to prove me wrong?
Faith in the True and Living God is like a science experiment to a degree; with one exception. The end result is proven to work every time and the foundation, which is the word of God, has never failed or been proven wrong and saved many a soul.
Romans 12:1-2 teaches us to prove what is that perfect and acceptable will of God for our lives. So here is the challenge. Will you take 14 days and follow my advice and prove which version of the bible you are using is best? If you will do what I offer by faith, God will show you the difference. Challenge: for 7 days do ALL of your bible reading, studying and devotions using nothing but the version you are currently using. Then see how things go for you overall in that same week and how your prayer time and answers go. Then for the next 7 days, do the exact same thing with the original King James Version. And see how things go in that week.
Why would you ask me to do that preacher? Because according to the bible, there is only one faith (Jude 1:3). According to Romans 10, the bible teaches us how to get that faith. Faith comes by hearing (verse 17) which means understanding. Hearing comes by the word of God (verse 17). How can they hear (understand) WITHOUT a preacher (verse 14) and how can he preach except he be sent (verse 15).
The most common misconception amongst Christians why they don't read the original KJV because they don't understand the old English. That is NOT the reason why you don't understand. You cannot understand without a preacher sent by God breaking the bread for you. If you could understand it yourself, Jesus wouldn't have wasted His breath when He instructed Peter to feed His sheep. Why do you think the true preachers of God stay under such heavy attack?! But it is still imperative that you, as a Christian, stay in the word of God every day and in the right version. God IS His Word (John 1:1) and the devil, who is a spirit also and the master deceiver, knows the first and most effective way to trick Christians is by altering God's word. Remember how it only took one word in the garden to alter the course of mankind forever? The devil told Eve “thou shalt NOT surely die.”. You can harden your heart and say “I don't believe you preacher.”. But remember it's your soul at stake and where you spend eternity. And if arrogance is the path you choose, remember the words of our Lord Himself in Luke 13:24 “Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for MANY, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall NOT be able.”
