Read More Strange KJB Words
The following are actual passages from the KJV. KJV onlyism breeds frustration and ignorance of God's word. In fact, over the last couple months we spoke to 3 different KJV people claiming salvation from 4 years to "many years," yet none of them even read through the entire New Testament! Without question, the KJV will discourage and cripple personal bible reading, because it is not an English translation that can be understood.
The KJB Is Incomprehensible
Imagine trying to understand an important document with a word or two that you can't understand! That bit of misunderstanding could turn disastrous for you, but with God's word it is infinitely more important that you understand what scripture is saying. The KJV will hinder you to the point of frustration and hopelessness as the following few examples will prove. Try as hard as you can to understand the following and you still won't be able to:O ye Corinthians, our mouth is open unto you, our heart is enlarged. Ye are not straitened in us, but ye are straitened in your own bowels. Now for a recompense in the same, (I speak as unto my children,) be ye also enlarged. (2 Cor 6:11-13, KJV)He runneth upon him, even on his neck, upon the thick bosses of his bucklers: Because he covereth his face with his fatness, and maketh collops of fat on his flanks. (Job 15:26,27, KJV)He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it: and he that hateth suretiship is sure. (Prov 11:15, KJV)For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left. (Deu 32:36, KJV)Take his garment that is surety for a stranger: and take a pledge of him for a strange woman. (Prov 20:16)Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud heart will not I suffer. (Psa 101:5)Or if there be any flesh, in the skin whereof there is a hot burning, and the quick flesh that burneth have a white bright spot, somewhat reddish, or white; (Lev 13:24)And Elisha came again to Gilgal: and there was a dearth in the land; and the sons of the prophets were sitting before him: and he said unto his servant, Set on the great pot, and seethe pottage for the sons of the prophets. (2 Ki 4:38)Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; (1 Tim 3:8)Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape. But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation. (Deu 32:14,15)He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment. He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary. (Job 41:31,32)...he that rebuketh a wicked man getteth himself a blot. (Prov 9:7b)QUESTION: Do you still believe the KJV propaganda that even a 10 year old can understand the KJV? More important, why do KJV bible readers LIE and say they can understand the KJV? Don't they know all LIARS will go to the lake of burning sulfur (Rev. 21:8).
If one would ignore all of the aforementioned and just ponder that Moses told God to repent of evil and God did repent, that should be enough to realize the KJV is fatally flawed:
The god of the KJB Repents of Evil!Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people. Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever. And the LORD repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people. (Exo 32:12-14)
