Do You Own A Bible

Do you own many versions of the Bible? If so, do you use them almost equally or tend to compare one with a particular other or do you mainly use one and dip into several of the others when you need a little clarity.

Please don't start any arguments about which version is the 'correct' one.

There isn't one Bible in the world which is perfect and unchanged. It began even at the time Apostles used Scribes to write for them or when they went to copy previous written work. It was not uncommon and even expected that they would make mistakes,a slip of the pen,misspelled words or even the change of word order which as we know can even change meanings. It just means for us that we must be diligent in seeking the leading of our teacher,the Holy Ghost,to lead us into all truth. We are not totally dependent on just the written word but must be led by the Holy Ghost to understand God's meaning for the words in the Bible. We must never lean only on our own understanding but always search for God's truth and intent for it all. God Bless

\\because there is many false Bibles that are not Christian. \\

Luke, are Jewish translations of the Tanak true Bibles or false Bibles?

//So why is it so wrong to teach that there is one true Bible, yet many false "bibles"?//

Dear Michael,
because there is many false Bibles that are not Christian. The New World Translation which the Jehovah Witnesses use is a false Bible. There are many others out there. There is one Christian Bible translated in many different languages and different ways but they all point to the originals, which we no longer have. Agape

"There is one true God, yet many false gods. There is one true Church, consisting of true believers in Christ, yet there are many false churches. So why is it so wrong to teach that there is one true Bible, yet many false 'bibles'?"
---michael_e on 7/11/14


Mikey: What makes a bible true is if it was translated, either word for word or thought for thought, from the original 1st century manuscripts. Actually, there is only one true Bible that has been translated, from the original manuscripts, in many different versions. Anything that's called a bible & doesn't fit the aforementioned criteria is false.

\\cluny where you are wrong is the king james is not the result of man's words. It is the Solid Word of God that He gave certain men the inspiration to write.\\

BTW, shira, can you give the NAMES of these "certain men" who were the inspired translators of the KJV?

And can you tell us why only THESE men and not the other translators were inspired? And why their apparently lack of inspiration did not affect the plenary verbal inspiration of the KJV?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 7/11/14


I've noticed that some Protestants have an attitude towards the KJV that resembles the attitude of traditionalist Roman Catholics towards they Tridentine Mass.

They both think it dropped out of heaven already written.

There was a KJVO congregation that was so burdened for Hispanophones who didn't have a KJV in Spanish, so they started to translate it.

They rendered the Greek "agio pnevmati"--Holy Ghost in KJV--not as Espirtu Santo, but as "Santa Fantasma": Holy Hobgoblin or Sacred Spook.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 7/10/14


We are saved by the Grace of God through faith. We do not need the Bible to make us spiritually alive together with Christ. What the Bible does do, is it tells us how we were made alive (Eph. 2:4-10). And since we are born of God as believers, we then understand the Word of God. The Spirit guides us unto all truth no matter the version of the Bible. The Bible teaches us the truths of God, and if one version gives the wrong details, the Spirit will let us know. Such a God cannot be found by searching. He can be know only as He is revealed to the heart by the Holy Spirit through the Word, the right Word, not the wrong one. Agape
---Luke on 7/11/14


What a lot of "KJV only" supporters don't seem to understand is there are many Bible translations that are accurate because they say, either word for word or thought for thought, what the original OT & NT manuscripts say.

"...We should be showing love & rejoice when people read a translation of the Bible they can understand..."
---Samuelbbb7 on 7/9/14


True Sam! I grew up with the KJV. It's speech is indeed beautiful. For the most part, I understand the antiquated speech. But, we don't talk like that in the modern world. The flowery, old English language for a great many is a stumbling block to their understanding. I say make it plain so people will understand, believe & be saved!

---Elena_9555 on 7/9/14




The KJV is the most beautiful to hear and read. But it is not the only translation.

This is a fight people get in that takes away from what the goal of all Christians should be.

Which is to exalt JESUS and lead people to accept Him as Savior.

Fighting over little unimportant changes does nothing to bring people to JESUS.

We should be showing love and rejoice when people read a translation of the Bible they can understand.

Agape to all.
---Samuelbbb7 on 7/9/14


\\cluny where you are wrong is the king james is not the result of man's words. It is the Solid Word of God that He gave certain men the inspiration to write.\\

Well, isn't that just special.

Do you have any objective evidence that the KJV translators were more inspired than the translators of, say, the Geneva Bible, or of the ERV of 1881?

I know the KJV translators didn't claim any special inspiration. They themselves continued to use either the Geneva or Bishops's Bible, depending on their churchmanship.

Did you know that ALL translators of the KJV believed in infant baptism--something that you probably reject?

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 7/9/14


I forgot to mention below that I knew a young man (some years ago) who bought a copy of The Satanic Bible and actually took it into a Christian bookshop for them to see. Soon after, this young man was saved - however, he fell back again and married a girl who was involved in witchcraft and it was downhill all the way for long time.

His Christian friends never forsook him and have helped him for years. He is now 'back on course' in his Christian walk.
---Rita_H on 7/9/14


To anyone who might have misunderstood what I meant when I said "these other 'bibles' are not usually found on the bookshelves of believers" I was not referring to other VERSIONS of the bible but to Leon's comment of 7/7 regarding books with titles such as 'The Vitamin BIBLE', The Gardeners BIBLE', The pet-owners BIBLE', and many others including those mentioned by Leon such as The Satanic BIBLE and The Gender Neutral BIBLE.

The word bible simply means big book in this context and is simply a selling tactic.
---Rita_H on 7/9/14


Dear Rita,
I have about six different versions of the Bible. I can very much tell the difference in all of them. I try to use the KJV that I have more then the others. I believe what students of the Bible should be aware of more is the commentaries. Those are the words of the commentators and their opinions. The NIV has very bad commentators. Gill commentaries are very good. You can find them online. Matthew Henry's are also good. I use all of them also MacArthur's commentaries, but am careful to not trust his end times commentaries because he is a dispensationalist. Agape

Thank you Elena, I have not seen the Woman's New International Bible. I'll have to look out for that and see what I think about it.

I feel bad for people who are so blind they refuse to see.

Yes Cluny it did that because some phrases do not translate well.

It would be like saying 23skidoo or pull a Barney Oilfield. Most would not understand them.

The NKJV is a very good translation and adheres to the KJV extremely well.

Most of the differences are minor. I keep hearing they are so many but when asked where and what they have all been minor that has been showed me.

The biggest problem I see is people not following what the Bible says.

rita, I can tell you one thing. if you go into a Christian book store you will hardly find a king james bible unless they are on the bottom shelf or in the back of the store or so high you need someone to get it down for you. once I bought a bible and when I got it home, it was NEW king james and I threw it in the garbage. the first words in genesis was changed.
---shira4368 on 7/8/14


Leon, these other 'bibles' are not usually found on the bookshelves of believers. The authors or publishers of these books have just latched on to the word 'bible' to make their personal offering of knowledge (of a type) look better than it possibly is. I think that we can translate 'their' meaning of bible into 'big book' and, as we all know, not all big books are particularly helpful.

For ordinary purposes, I use the KJV, 1769 and 1904 recensions (I was raised on it and have many passages memorized), NKJV, and Orthodox Study Bible (especially since its OT is translated from the LXX).

But ANY translation of the Bible is just that: a translation, and therefore a product of human skill.

Believe it or not, there are places where even the KJV went in for paraphrase/dynamic equivalence.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Yes Ms. Rita. More often than not, it's like trying to herd cats on CN blogs. :)

There are many extant Bible manuscripts, e.g., the Dead Sea Scrolls, Septuagint, Vulgate, etc. The multiple modern versions of the Bible should all have one thing in common in that they echo the existing Bible manuscripts either word for word or thought for thought.

The so-called bibles, e.g., satanic, gay, gender neutral/feminist, etc., fall way outside the pale of Bible manuscript orthodoxy. Therefore, they're not the Word of God. Rather, they're false doctrines from the pits of hell. No born again believer in their "right mind" would pay attention to anything they teach.
---Leon on 7/7/14


cluny, everyone knows if a spirit don't line up with the Word of God, it is not the Holy Spirit. its sort of very easy to know these things. what is confusing sometimes when we feel like God wants us to do something and we do it but the door slams as quick as it opened. sometimes its hard to know what God wants us to do.
---shira4368 on 7/7/14


You are correct Leon, that is what I wanted it to be about but as you know, questions (and answers) here tend to take on a life of their own.

I have always had several versions of the bible but have added the Good News Bible to my 'collection' recently as that is the one we use in church. I find the straightforward language helpful and easier to read out loud (which many don't like to do).

If comparing several helps my understanding that can only be a good thing and I cannot understand why some people are negative about this.

The original wasn't in English anyway and I'm really glad that it is now and in a variety of versions to suit all of us.
---Rita_H on 7/7/14


\\ I put my faith/trust in the whole Bible counsel of God & pay attention as the Holy Spirit divides (explains) Bible truths for my instruction, \\

This is a circular answer, but you've not explained HOW you know it's the Holy Spirit to start with.

In other words, you have no objective proof that it is indeed the Holy Spirit instructing you.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

---Shira4368 on 7/7/14


I thought this blog was about studying & comparing the many written versions of the Bible record? But, it seems some here want to make it about one exclusive version, i.e. the KJV. They think the devil (serpent) & mere men have power to corrupt all other versions, thereby changing God's word to a lie.

The Bible, from the beginning, shows when man runs ahead of God's instructions we delude ourselves & fall headlong into disaster. But, God's word always stands unchanged for those of us who hear & know His voice, seek & pay attention to His divinely inspired words in whatever format "He chooses" to present them. We can be confident God's Holy Spirit lets our spirit man know what's true & what's false.

Yes Shira, I understand that, like me, you have compared many versions of the bible.

If you post a few I can then study these for myself. This will help my own, personal, bible study. Thank you Shira.

Dear Shira,
I believe you answered to the best of your ability. Told us how you feel about the KJV. The blog question ask to not start any arguments but that is the first thing that happen when you gave your opinion.
Everyone else also gave their opinions on what Bible they like, even Leon who says, he doesn't like opinions. I also know that in your hurry to respond to Cluny you used the word "royalhood" maybe it was the first word that came into your mind. Just a mistake. Every single person makes mistakes. Also the New World Translation is a bible that many of those followers of Satan have changed. He is behind all that so you are right on, on that one. And you are correct, no one is more powerful that Almighty God.

The King James and NKJV are both translations. I do not care for the NIV since it is a dynamic translation so not as much word for word.

Some bibles are paraphrases and that to me makes them more like a commentary by one person.

The amplified Bible is a good one for study but it is difficult to read. The Revised Standard and New American Standard are considered to be good translations.

Most text changes are because the switch to modern English and trying to use simpler words.

All the doctrines we teach can be proved from any good translation.

Shira, in the part of the U.K. where I live many churches have no regular pastor and rely on preachers and ministers from other churches to occupy their pulpits. One of these churches has had a sign similar to the one you mention (ever since the NIV came into existence) and some visiting preachers actually find it offensive. The sign is not publicly displayed but is placed on the seat behind the pulpit for only the preacher (who has already prepared his/her sermon from whatever bible he uses) to see.

That church is in the process of closing down as it's (now) 4 surviving members cannot afford to keep it open.

I was not asking about, or suggesting, privately interpreting the bible. Owning several different versions can be very helpful.

They have all been written over various periods of time when some words were used which we now, rarely, see.

Some people feel that modern translations are wrong (or, perhaps, less helpful) than older ones but, for me, being able to compare several is very helpful indeed. I use them in conjunction with bible study books also.

It never worries me that 'some' others might not like the 'main' bible that I use. I feel that God speaks to me and helps me as long as I am studying His Word and going to Him for guidance in my life.

Personally, I do like the KJV, but of course it is not the 'original Bible' - it is only a translation! I consider the Greek NT to be the 'real' one (I can't read the original OT)

\\ It said there was not a single text change in the KJV Bible. \\

Of course, everything you read on one is always 100% correct, right?

The KJV went through 4 major revisions in Great Britain alone, the last being in 1769. The ABS published a version normalized according to American spellings in 1904.

There are too many textual changes for me to list here.

ANY translation of the Bible, including the KJV, is a work of human skill. One thing the Bible in any translation makes plain is that no mere human has done anything for God and gotten it 100% right.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

The 1611 KJV had,

"Thou shall covet thy neighor's wife" without the not.

They recently (about 3 years ago) found a 1611 Bible at a church in Scotland and used this verse to authentic it as being orginial 1611 by this test.

Yes I own many versions.Each one helps me dive into Gods word. I have the Restoration KJV bible using "Yahweh" and "Yeshua" also it has the strongs concordence with it, so this is my main study bible.. then I have the KJV with JSM commentary though I am not a pentecostal, I also havev the KJV lds bible & the 2013 Revised NWT bible from Jw's though I'm nto mormon or Jw. I love the NWT because it fits in my purse & God has helped me when reading it. I stay away from the NIV , & the message & paraphrased bibles because it takes away from the main message of Gods word. Hope that helps.

That's funny you should say that, Lawrence.

Radical puritans said the same thing about the original KJV when it was released in 1611. They called it the Devil's Bible, burned it in the streets, and continued to use the Geneva Bible.

You do realize that the KJV itself has been revised several times and still published with that name, don't you?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

I have 2 KJV Bibles. I've had since 1986 n 2010.
No other versions. Why?, because the revised versions, they Are Corrupted. They Have been edited altered changed n with words taken out by the doctrines and commandments of men theologians, scholars, philosophers. Trying to make God say what He does Not say. Surely it makes the devil happy.
