As conservative, make that extremely conservative IBFers, we use the KJV. That is, I use the KJV, the Preacher uses the Reina-Valera 1960, because he is Spanish speaking.
I do not wish to open a debate, but here is the problem. Several good KJVers , wanting to say how good the Bible is, are going to the extreme now to say that the KJV is the Bible for the whole world and that all other Bibles in other languages must be filtered through the KJV, and even so remain but a shadow of the KJV.
Our Reina-Valera 1960 Bible was translated from the Textus Receptus a few years before the KJV. It has been revised through the centuries, as has the KJV. It has never been revised by the Critical Texts.
It grieves my husband to feel that once again, Americans are acting like what they have is better than everybody esle's. God can preserve His Word in any language.
The Preacher feels like Satan is going to use this issue to divide the Brethren, and the Brethren, all feeling like they must defend the truth, fall for it. God can and will preserve His Word. He has done so through the ages.
May we all be wise and open to the leading of the Holy Spirit of God in this issue.
