Why use the
King James Bible?
Why don't all the other New Testaments use this Greek Text (Textus
They are printing Bibles under copyrights to sell
for profit. If they only used the Textus Receptus to translate
from, they could not justify enough differences to compete.
These printers have found 3 texts which seem to be older than all
the rest and wrongly assume that since they were older, they must be
closer to the original autographs.
This is proven wrong by the mere
fact that the 3 differ widely between themselves. If they were so
close to non-error they ought to be almost identical among
themselves. If all 3 widely differ, only one can be right, but no
one wants to make a case for any one of the 3. They just want
to sell Bibles.
Incidentally, the King James has no copyright.
It is sold from the standpoint of truth, not something ...
* easier to understand
* and so on.
Also, none of the Copyrighted Bibles claim
to be the true Bible. They would have us all believe that God
was not able to preserve His Word.
"The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace
of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou
shalt preserve them from this generation for ever."
Copyrighted Bibles also have chosen a few from the 5000+ texts that survive today
and given special emphasis to them, simply because they say what
they want to translate.
