[Important Note: CV4F does not hold to the King James 1611 Only (KJO) position]

 

KJV is a reliable translation and is nearest to the original manuscripts but there are archaic words in it. Christians whose primary language is not English find it difficult to understand some of the passages. This is the main reason why we use modern translations (KJ21, KJ2000, etc) based on the Textus Receptus (TR) Greek Text. 

But we reject all modern translations based on the Codex Sinaiticus (Aleph) and Codex Vaticanus (B) Greek Text. These versions are corrupted and contain serious theological, historical and other type of errors. Therefore, we recommend 21st Century King James Version(KJ21) ; King James 2000; Defined KJB OR The Literal Translation of the Bible  for those who have difficulty understanding the KJV.

As for the NKJV, some Bible scholars acknowledge that the errors in NKJV are not as serious as those found in the NIV and other modern versions. Furthermore, it does not use “dynamic equivalence”  translation as the NIV. It is a word-for-word translation. However, the NKJV tend to favour the corrupted Greek Text in translating certain verses . 21st Century King James Version (KJ21) and King James 2000 are better translations than the NKJV.  And for those who prefer the old KJV with the archaic words defined in the footnotes,then the DEFINED KJB is a good choice.

THE  BIBLE IS A PERFECT BOOK FROM A PERFECT GOD.  IT IS HIS LOVE LETTER TO ALL OF US
