Which Version Of The Christian Bible Is The Best? by modaink333: 11:22am On Nov 12, 2017
There are many versions of the Bible, but to be honest, i think the "Good news Bible" is the best because of its complete books and is easily understood during reading �... That's my own opinion. But which do you think is the best?

KJV is the 56th (or below) version of the bible.
its ignorant to think that it is the original just because it uses all the wrong english in the world. Thou shalt etc. Those words are not english words neither did the original manuscript say thou shalt, ye etc, the original manuscript was written in hebrews and greek, so the KJV translator did wat he could do the same way other translators did theirs
No translation is fake none is original, in theology different translations are required to fully understand different verses

KJV was number 56 (or below) on the translation line

I REPEAT THE AUTHENTIC VERSION OF THE HOLY BIBLE TODAY IS THE OLD KINGS JAMES VERSION
Old KJV was translated in 1611
Before that translation there was
Great bible 1539
coverdale bible 1535
Bishop's bible 1568
Other early bibles were in parts
So saying KJV is the original translation is wat i dont get.
Is it because we all grew up reading kjv, or is it because our pastors or preach and prophesy in kjv.

[b] furthrr, the King gave the
translators instructions designed to guarantee
that the new version would conform to the
ecclesiology of the Church of England. [8]
Certain Greek and Hebrew words were to be
translated in a manner that reflected the
traditional usage of the church. [8] For
example, old ecclesiastical words such as the
word "church" were to be retained and not to
be translated as "congregation". [8] The new
translation would reflect the episcopal
structure of the Church of England and
traditional beliefs about ordained clergy. [8]
James' instructions included several
requirements that kept the new translation
familiar to its listeners and readers. The text
of the Bishops' Bible would serve as the
primary guide for the translators, and the
familiar proper names of the biblical
characters would all be retained. If the
Bishops' Bible was deemed problematic in any
situation, the translators were permitted to
consult other translations from a pre-approved
list: the Tyndale Bible, the Coverdale Bible,
Matthew's Bible, the Great Bible, and the
Geneva Bible. In addition, later scholars have
detected an influence on the Authorized
Version from the translations of Taverner's [/b]


The bolded was lifted from wikipedia.
KJV also has its own fault.Some controversies also sorrounds it with accusations that King James of scotland ensured that the translation in some way suited the church in scotland

The best and most authentic version of the bible is KJV 1611. I have read many other translation but KJV is not just the best but it is the best.
That is why every cult tries to down grade or ridicule it. KJV remains the best and most popular among born again Christians.

If KJV or any other version is the best, why are there still so many contradictions that Christians can not agree or compromise on one thing? Just one thing! The tithe issue is an example of one among many.
