You see, I was taught growing up that the KJV is a translation of the original text and all other translations are just translations of the KJV making them less accurate and reliable. Advertisement: A Brief History of the KJV It’s well known that we only have fragments of the original manuscripts.All current versions of the Bible are simply English translations of first translations.I think it’s fair to say that most of us know how silly the notion is that the KJV is THE original Word of God so for the purposes of this site I would like to share a little insight into the KJV, why it is a dangerous version to use and how it relates to the IFB.The IFB churches I experienced fell on the more conservative side of the above mentioned continuum.The KJV is actually nothing more than a translation in a long line of translations.

I never could get a good answer other than the message then “the KJV is the Bible for the English speaking world.” The belief was never validated for me, at least not that I can remember.

On the more conservative side of the continuum, some IFB churches believe that the KJV is THE original Word of God.

While there are variations among the different IFB churches as to the strictness of their beliefs on this topic, there are very few IFB churches that don’t advocate using the KJV to the exclusion of all other versions of the Bible.

It makes me sad to think that people are trapped like I was so many years ago.

Well, I don’t have to rely solely on personal experience to draw my conclusions from.
