I often receive comments on my blog written by people claiming that the King James Bible is the only translation people should read and that all other translations are untrustworthy. I disagree with this view strongly. It’s not only mistaken; it has caused much harm and division in the church and, thus, should be soundly denounced.
Notice that I’m not saying the King James Bible is a bad translation. I’m saying that it’s not the best translation and it certainly isn’t the only divinely authorized translation, as some so strongly assert.
Below I’ve linked to an article written by Dr. Daniel Wallace of Dallas Theological Seminary–one of the world’s foremost authorities on textual criticism. He provides a powerful refutation of the King James Only position. Read this article and share it with your friends.
