I am a member of a good, solid, New Testament, Bible
believing church in Kelowna, B.C.
where I attend regularly. It is called People's
Baptist Church. It is an Independent, Fundamental Baptist church
that preaches and teaches from the King James Bible and
doesn't explain it away. Here there are Christians that actually want to live for the Lord Jesus Christ and
not just pay lip service to Him and His Word. I have
been learning so much lately from God's Word and from
solid Bible studies that I am amazed. No more pablum
from the NASV, when I can digest this solid food from
the King James Bible! It is such a relief to know that
what I am reading is the truth, and nothing but the
truth! I don't have to depend on my own personal whim
(or the marginal notes of a lukewarm version, or the
myriad opinions of clergy and scholars) to determine
what God really said (and is still saying today to
those who will heed His voice and not harden their
I know that a lot of what I have to say
will not be popular, but everything I do say is based
on all my personal study of God's Holy Word and holding
everything up to the light of that Word. I do not
explain away passages or try to twist God's Word to fit
my personal biases - I don't believe that God's Word is
malleable - in the sense that we can take any Bible
passage 1000 different ways. God meant what He said and
He said what He meant. God said it and that settles it! Someone could choose to teach
lies, but that's from (a) twisting the Word to their own
destruction, or (b) using a corrupted version because they
can't handle the pure Words of the Lord.
I am sharing what the Scriptures say and
my personal convictions and thoughts on certain subjects.
I am sharing what I believe in these studies and
articles, but I make no claims to being inerrant - only
God is, and His Word (in English, God's inerrant Word is the King James Bible).
If you, the reader, come across anything on my website
that you believe is inaccurate or wrong based on your
studies of the KJB, then please share your conclusions
with me. You will find that I am teachable and I will
change my mind on areas where I am proved wrong. BUT I
will only change my mind on any given doctrine/subject
if your conclusion takes into account all the Scripture
dealing with that issue. Not one or two verses ripped
out of context. If you find that any of my conclusions
are overlooking other verses or passages that contradict
my conclusions, let me know. My email address is below.
I make no apologies for what is on my
website. The truth is a stumbling block to the
unbeliever or carnal Christian. Jesus Himself is a
stone of stumbling and a rock of offence to those who
reject Him. (1 Peter 2:8) I will not be guilty of
being a man-pleaser and removing the offence of the
cross. I will do my best not to be personally offensive,
but if the truth of God's Holy Word offends, then let
it be so! Maybe whomever it offends will realize that
all their lives they were held captive to the devil and
will come to a knowledge of the truth and be saved. If
your lifestyle and beliefs are never put under
subjection to the Word of God and the conviction of the
Holy Spirit, how then can you repent of your sins and
trust Jesus Christ, the Son of God and our only Saviour,
for the salvation you so desperately need if you ever
hope to attain to eternal life. Eternal life is knowing
God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour. (See John 17:3 and 1
John 5:20) It is a relationship, not a religion.
For those who have read my essay on Bible
Versions and may desire a list of references (bibliography
and source for quotes), unfortunately I don't have one prepared that lists all my primary sources. I didn't keep track of all
my sources when I wrote the essay because originally it
was just a letter I was writing to a friend of mine.
The Lord impressed upon me the desire to share my
research and personal study in this area with others. I can email anyone that is interested a list of some of the books I have found the most useful in researching this issue.
Much valuable information on various aspects of the Bible Versions issue can be gathered from David Cloud's
Way Of Life Literature.
All the information on my essay has been confirmed and modified based on information David Cloud has located on his site or has directly linked to. He thoroughly covers everything from preservation, to the history of the various texts, to translators, as well as in-depth looks at some of the changes in the newer versions. David Cloud's site also links to many sound sites that can give you further information on this issue.
NOTE: David Cloud was not one of my primary sources for putting my essay together, but I have since found all the same sound information that I came across covered in his many well-researched articles. I highly recommend his website as a starting place for research on this subject.
