I watched a few YouTube videos yesterday.
Not funny ones.
These ones were really angry.
The videos were of a man who constantly bashed other translations of the bible.
And claimed that the KJV is God’s only inspired word for English speakers.
It broke me.
Not because he was so angry and up-in-arms about it.
But because I was like him before,
but at the same time, opposite.
I used to hate people who used the KJV NKJV or any ‘old’ translation.
I was so narrow-minded.
The simple fact of the matter is this:
God speaks thru His word.
Whether that is KJV NKJV NIV NRSV AMP or ESV.
He speaks. Thru His word.
It is up to us to read it, treasure it and abide in it.
So – don’t worry about having the ‘most accurate’ or ‘most readable’ version.
Get what you feel most comfortable reading…and listen.
