Why We Use the King James Version

After watching this video, you will clearly understand the difference between the King James and the modern versions — and you will understand why we use the King James.

“Why We Use the King James” takes you through a brief manuscript history, talks about some of the personalities involved, and compares some important verses in the KJV with verses in the New International Version.


Psalms 12:6-7
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.

2 Timothy 3:16
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.

Revelation 22:18-19 
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
