QUESTION: Can someone get saved if you are using a bible
other than the King James?
EXPLANATION: Generally, the facts surrounding the gospel
of Jesus Christ and the simplicity of salvation are found intact even
in the grossest perversions of Scripture.
It must be remembered though that the Bible is a weapon in the
hand of the Christian. See Hebrews 4:12, Job 40:19 and II
It is also food that a new Christian might grow properly. See I
It is in these areas that new bibles are weakened. In fact, the
very verses given above are altered in many new versions, thus
It is therefore possible to get saved through other versions, but
you will never be a threat to the devil by growing.
