 Version Question

May the grace of God through our Lord Jesus Christ be on you all. Merry Christmas!

Do I have to use KJV? I love the ESV. I will use KJV if it is necessary, but my preference is to the ESV.

As much as I have been trying to use the ESV and like it. The KJV has me firm in its grasp... I have tried many times to go to other versions but always have fallen back on the KJV. The problem with the ESV for me.. is the sense of wanting to be part of something new, with their new craftsmanship on the bibles and bible covers, and the crowd of people converting to it. But sadly that is a bad reason to choose a bible version.

The KJV bible simply has the most history, depth and strength of what a english bible translation should have. But as I said these days I have a ESV I am trying to read on the side.

 Re:

Hi Dave,

Check out this link http://www.kjvonly.org/ for some interesting reading. I used to be KJV-only, but this site brought some clarity to this topic for me.

 Re:

Thanks for the links. I've been through the KJV only debate before. I use the Textus in my own study, but really do love the language of the ESV. It is not as stilted as the NASB. The ESV is honest, where the Nestle-Aasland text omits something in the TR, it footnotes it. I am fine with that. I find the translation is doctrinally sound.
