Italicized words in the Authorized Bible
Can the italicized words in the KJB be removed? Do we need them? Perhaps you have heard they were added to God’s word and that you can remove them when you so desire. That is not true. God put them there for a reason. Look at the verses below to see why they are required.
1Jn 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
Nice verse, right? Let’s see what it looks like without the italicized words. I will place a * where the italicized words were.
1Jn 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love * *, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down * lives for the brethren. Read More…
Introduction to the King James Bible Issue
This will just be a basic introduction to, what many people call, the “King James Bible issue”. There are 2 sides to this issue, the people who believe the King James Bible is the Inspired, perfect, pure word of God(containing all the pure words of God in it), and the people who believe it is simply a translation that contains its own errors. People on both sides vary on their positions, but everyone basically falls into either of those.
Pro 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
Pro 30:6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.
The Bible teaches that every single word of God is pure. Jesus, in 3 of the gospels teaches that “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” (Mat. 24:35, Mark 13:31, Luke 21:33) The Bible even mentions the jot and tittle as being protected by him until the passing of heaven and earth. (Mat. 5:18) Clearly, God means to preserve his words. The problem is that there are people who think that God’s inspired words no longer exist. The Bible teaches that He will keep them, and “preserve them from this generation for ever”. (Psalm 12:6-7) To believe God has somehow failed to keep and preserve his words is completely unbiblical.
