Any Bible Translation Will Do?
Advice from apostate churches about which Bible translation to use:
- Use whatever Bible version you like.
- Use whatever version you are most comfortable with.
- Use the version your church has in the pew racks.
- Use the Bible version that your pastor uses.
- Use the most recent Bible version. Newer is better, right?
- Use the most popular Bible version. It must be good if everyone likes it, right?
- Use the version that is easiest to read. Who cares if the translation is not accurate!
- Use the version that is most “seeker-friendly”.
- Use the woman’s version or the “gender neutral” version.
- Use the NASB because that’s what the seminaries prefer (and because they get to “revise” it every few years).
- Use the NIV because its the most widely used and who cares that there were homosexuals on the translation committee.
- Avoid versions that contain anti-gay verses.
- Avoid the King James Version at all cost!
Why people say you should avoid the King James Version:
- They say its outdated.
- They say its too hard to read.
- They say its not as accurate as the modern Bibles.
- They never learned that the modern Bible versions are based on corrupt Greek manuscripts, which is why the modern versions are missing so many words, phrases and verses, to where these new versions are no longer doctrinally correct or biblically accurate.
If you really want to know the truth about which Bible versions to avoid and which are the most reliable, do your own research. Many people who are giving out Bible version advice have NOT done much – if any – research on their own.

Christ Died For The Ungodly
by Horatius Bonar
The divine testimony concerning man is, that he is a sinner. God bears witness against him, not for him; and testifies that "there is none righteous, no, not one"; that there is "none that doeth good"; none "that understandeth"; none that even seeks after God, and, still more, none that loves Him (Psa. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:10-12). God speaks of man kindly, but severely; as one yearning over a lost child, yet as one who will make no terms with sin, and will "by no means clear the guilty." <continued>
