I have often wondered why some Christians readily believe in the infallibility of the King James Bible while others stumble at this belief. Obviously, as genuine Bible (a Book you can hold in your hands) believers, we are no better (or holier) than those Christians who reject our convictions concerning the King James Bible. Then why have we believed and they haven’t?

 

I believe the difference between those of us who are Bible  believing Christians and those Christians who do not hold our convictions concerning the King James Bible has to do with our previous belief and acceptance of God’s holy words as being both true and pure - even before we came to know about or understand the “Which Bible” issue. I believe that before genuine Bible believers accepted and embraced the King James Bible as being the holy word of God, they already believed and accepted most, if not all, of the following verses concerning the holy words of God, which made believing in the King James Bible quite simple.
