As you may have noticed, all of our quoted scriptures and scriptural references are from the King James Version. We firmly believe the King James Version to be the literal Word of God that’s been preserved down through the ages.
The newer Bible versions have over 300 changes and omissions. What do the Scriptures say about that?
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
We also agree with James L. Melton, who wrote “How I Know The King James Bible is the Word of God.”
Here is the introduction from his article:
There are many good works that one can read on the authority of the King James Bible, and this particular effort offers nothing really new. However, it does attempt to explain the issue in a simple and brief manner for all to understand. Over the years I have learned a great deal about this issue, and I believe that a truth worth learning is a truth worth telling.
Many preachers and teachers across our land talk about “preferring” and “using” the KJV, but I haven’t heard them speak much about BELIEVING it. Many prefer it and use it, because that’s what their congregations prefer and use, but they do not BELIEVE it to be the infallible words of God. They are taught in college to USE, PREFER, and RECOMMEND the KJV, but they are NOT taught to BELIEVE it. Most “Christian colleges” teach that the King James Bible is only a translation, and that NO translation is infallible. Consequently, the average minister today uses a Book which he doesn’t even believe.
Now, I thank God that I don’t have that problem. I don’t have to play make-believe with anyone about the word of God. I believe it. I believe the King James Bible is the preserved and infallible words of God. It doesn’t merely “contain” the word of God: it IS the word of God. I’m absolutely sure of it, and I’d like to give a few reasons why. Here are twelve reasons how I know that the KJV is the word of God…

We sincerely thank you for reading our article concerning the reasons why we prefer using the King James Version over other versions of the Bible. We also ask that you would search your heart (asking God diligently through prayer) to see if the Lord places the same things on your heart that He has ours concerning the King James Version.
