Proverbs 30:5: “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.”
Every word of God is pure! Not just the Bible itself, but EVERY word. This means that you can’t simply translate “ideas” like the modern scholars argue. Every word of God is sacred and must be translated appropriately. If you, you start to walk down the road of heresy. Not only are the scholars doing this themselves, but they are leading others to this ruination by promoting their modern Bibles.
These different KJV Bibles are different editions. Realize it says editions, not revisions. They only include typographical errors and spelling differences, not real changes. All of the KJV Bibles are still the perfect Word of God without changed or removed words. They fix typographical errors and spellings that happen from the natural mistakes of modern printing technology. There is a big difference between the different editions of the KJV and all of the varying modern translations that have changed the content of the Bible.
This truth debunks the critics’ argument about which KJV is the right one! They are all acceptable as the Word of God. There are not any doctrinal differences between them. You can comfortably choose any of them that you prefer and know that you are receiving the perfect Word of God in its entirety.
We believe the KJV is pure because every word is honestly translated and not intentionally changed! God considers something pure by the honesty of the person’s heart.
Ezra 6:20: “For the priests and the Levites were purified together, all of them were pure, and killed the passover for all the children of the captivity, and for their brethren the priests, and for themselves. And the children of Israel, which were come again out of captivity, and all such as had separated themselves unto them from the filthiness of the heathen of the land, to seek the Lord God of Israel, did eat,“
Why were they all considered pure? It was because they did it to the best of their abilities to keep themselves separate.
The problem with modern Bible translations is that they are intentionally changed and manipulated to further the doctrines of the modern scholars who are working on them. There is not honesty in their heart. They are promoting falsehoods and heresies through their work, not making unintentional errors. The following verses show how highly God treats the purity of one’s heart:
Psalm 24:4: “He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.”
Pure in this case is living to the honesty of the heart, without deliberate flagrancy.
Matthew 5:8: “Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.”
Are these people entirely pure in their heart? No, they live by their best ability to live pure lives.
We should rejoice because God used the blood of the martyrs, the KJV translators, and so many others throughout history to bring us His perfect Bible. We don’t need to search through multiple translations to find the perfect Word of God. It has already been revealed! It is a cause for great celebration.
God doesn’t look at the typographical changes or spelling errors. He looks at the purity of heart and declares it pure. What He doesn’t accept is the flagrant wickedness that is present in modern Bibles. They deliberately changed God’s Word. They relied on their own “knowledge,” not God’s, and decided to remove things, change things, etc., all because of what THEY thought was right! And this is after they already had in their hands the perfect Word of God. That’s deliberate flagrancy.
Let the Bible define to you what pure is! Don’t let the critics point out supposed flaws.
