The KJV ONLY controversy…the claim to be the ONLY true Bible!

The KJV is not the ONLY true BIBLE!

To start off I want to state my position on this matter. Neither my husband (David) or I believe the KJV is the ONLY true bible. After diligent study, there is no evidence to such claim. To us and many believers it actually sounds cultist, KJV- onlyers are the only believer’s who claim THEIR translation is the ONLY true bible. You will never hear someone who reads the NASB, NIV or NTL claim such thing!  KJV onlyers do not claim to be the most accurate but the ONLY true bible. I will let you come to your own conclusions…but when asked KJV onlyers “was there a bible before 1611?” They answer, No.  Some things to think about while researching this matter is why, if the 1611 KJV is said to be the true Bible included the apocrypha? Why do KJV’ers not read the Apocrypha today? So if the KJV has errors in it, which can be proven and have been are KJ’ers saying God made errors???

Dr. John Ankerberg, the BEST debate I have ever heard on the KJV only controversy!

Where did the KJV come from??? You will be surprised to find the ties to the Catholic church and the fact that the 1611 version INCLUDED the apocrypha!

The KJV Only controversy continues…this is a quote from this article which I can testify to, the most spiteful, proud and arrogant people I have met have been KJV Only people which is very sad indeed.

“Among the most virulent and spiteful of the comments we’ve received were those that came not from Muslims, Mormons, or Catholics; but rather from Christians in the KJO (King James Only) camp.”

I could have written on the matter after all the research done but I will allow the scholars to do the talking themselves. Thank you for reading and I pray you come to the truth of God’s Word.

About Disciple of Christ, Wife, Mommy of 5 blessings & NM Top Earner.

As a wife, homeschooling stay at home mom of 5 beautiful blessings, taxi, chef, doctor, philosopher etc, my life is full of adventures everyday. Most of the adventures lead me to find another lost piece of my identity concealed deep within my heart. I have always felt that there was more to life than just “making it through”. After 5 little ones (4 under 4 & in diapers), I lost all the pieces I had found along the way. I was left with thinking my identity was being a wife and mom. “This can’t be all there is to me!”, I reasoned. Who am I? What’s in my heart? Why do I thrive around beauty and my heart leaps for joy when experiencing something as simple as a sunset. A feeling like I am free, inside. My heart can breathe again as if it had been holding its oxygen all along. Did God make me like this, I wondered? I felt guilty for longing to let my heart be free once again. After all the picture we have of a “perfect” woman is one that is ALWAYS busy! Always volunteering, always giving of herself with never once a thought of the state of her inner being. That is why we lose our hearts. Vulnerability is not welcomed anywhere. Femininity in its purest form is frowned upon. Why? Because women are supposed to be tough! The kind of tough that is just wrong. We are trained to hide our vulnerability, along with our femininity, very early in life. The wounds we have received as little girls leave us reacting as women like that wounded little girl would: we retreat, we regress. The message we received? You can’t trust anyone! Your femininity and vulnerability is a weakness. Most of us walk through life “playing” or pretending to be someone we’re truly not. As adults, we make choices based on how we were programmed when we were young. The real us hides somewhere inside, waiting to be rescued. Like a wounded animal hiding from its master, wanting to trust and soar again, but so afraid of the uncertainty that awaits. The risk is not worth it, we think to ourselves. To be quite honest most of you have not found a safe place to be yourselves. Embarking on a quest to find the real you takes courage. God created you in His image. Adam bears the image of a warrior God. A man is supposed to tell the world, on God’s behalf, He will come through for you. Eve bears the image of a captivating God and her heart is made to show His beauty. A woman is supposed to tell the world, everything is ok. She is that calm & quiet spirit. Safety; a place of refuge and healing beauty. This is what our hearts long for; Eden. The place for which we were created. The place in our hearts we know we belong. I am just a simple girl on a quest to finding my heart. Not the way I was “shaped” by the world but the way God created me. I pray that this journey will be encouraging and uplifting to others. I am going on an adventure and invite you to come with me! I am very transparent because that is what this world needs! With all my love, Laire
