BIBLE VERSIONS

Can You Trust Just One Bible?

Let's start with a little reality check. There are no "NIV-only," "NAS-only," "ESV-only," or even "New King James-only" movements. Only the King James Bible in English has inspired people to trust it, to the rejection of all other English Bibles.

They trust it exclusively, because of its faithfully preserved text, as well as its faithfully written translation.

It is, they believe, exactly what God would have said, had He written down His words in Classical English. That is no minor claim. The publishers of the NIV certainly don't make it. Nor is it claimed of any other English translation.

And the stakes are high, Brothers and Sisters. History shows us, when someone stops trusting and reading the King James Bible, no other Bible takes its place. A 2014 survey (Christianitytoday.com) shows that once people switch to another Bible, the vast majority stop regular reading, and trusting their new Bible. They spend more time carrying it to church than they do reading it. They are unsure of what the Bible says, and their doctrine starts drifting.

Why?

Because they have no place where they can trust that they can find God's words as their final authority and the answer to: "What is truth, what is good —and how can we know?"

When you don't trust your book, you begin to trust people, usually the people in your church. It may be your pastor, the leaders of your denomination, scholars, or publishers. But people are imperfect. Without a book to judge them by, Satan can easily slip error your way. Research done by Chick Publications illustrates this problem. Modern Bibles are filled with mistakes, omissions and contradictions. Only the KJV has a solid history, testifying to God's promise to preserve His words (Matthew 24:35, Mark 13:31; Luke 21:33).

Over the years, Chick Publications has continued to research the Bible Version issue. What they found was a monstrous plot by Satan to discredit God's words. As the research developed, Chick published articles and books illustrating this plot against God's words. They can be accessed through this web page.
