What Version of the Bible Should we be Using

Hi Mike,

Psalms 12:6. “The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.”

​I​s this telling us that we should only be using the king james? where we are stuck with words like eternal, everlasting, forever, damnation, and forever and ever…instead of aion, aionios, owlam, age, and ages of the ages​?​

I​ do know that many bibles that ​I​ know of after the king james are missing quite a bit out of the book. I don​’​t know how else to wrap my head around this.​


Hi S​____​,

There is no translation which is without its faults. Every translation has its strong points and its weak points. I have over 100 different translations, and I use them as they agree with “the sum of [the Lord’s] word”:

Psa 119:160  The sum of thy word is truth; And every one of thy righteous ordinances endureth for ever.

Knowing the principle of “the sum of Thy Word is Truth” is a vital key to the kingdom of God, which ‘key’ is completely hidden from us in the King James Version which reads:

Psa 119:160  Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

If you are led to do so, I strongly suggest that you read the series of studies entitled ‘The Keys ​t​o The Kingdom of God’ beginning at this URL:

Synopsis of the Keys to the Kingdom

The Lord is working all things after the counsel of His own will and that includes both the bad and the good translations. He is not at this time saving the world, rather He is at this time withholding “the mysteries of the kingdom of God [from] the multitudes”:

Mat 13:10  And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them [the multitudes, verse 2] in parables?
Mat 13:11  He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

Most translators believe in the trinity and all the false doctrines which are derived from that perverse understanding which denies that “the head of Christ is God [and that the holy spirit is] the holy spirit of God”:

1Co 11:3  But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

Eph 4:30  And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

The false doctrine of an immortal soul is based upon the teaching that God is a trinity and therefore we​,​ too,​ must be triune beings with an immortal soul. Without that lie you cannot believe in eternal torment.

So Christ’s parables along with all the mistranslations in scripture server to further the fact that “it is not given to [the multitudes] to understand the mysteries of the kingdom of God”.

It was all preordainded of God from “before the world began”, and we will just wait on Him to carry out His purpose in the life of every man.

YbiC, Mike
