When I left the IFB around age 25 I found out some valuable information that flies in the face of the IFB and their KJV only stance.Personal experience became the fuel that burned the fire within me.

It makes me sad to think that people are trapped like I was so many years ago.

Well, I don’t have to rely solely on personal experience to draw my conclusions from.

I started reading the New International Version (henceforth NIV) and after I got over my initial guilt which was highly unfounded, I actually understood the Bible for the first time in my life.

Things were jumping off the pages at me and I was like a sponge, absorbing all the information I could.

The KJV is actually nothing more than a translation in a long line of translations.

The KJV New Testament (and all editions since Tyndale) was compiled primarily from the Byzantine family of manuscripts (AD 500 – 1000) frequently referred to as the Textus Receptus (Latin for Received Text).

The messages contained in the Bible are so clear to me now as I finally have the freedom to read a version of the Bible that I can comprehend. If this were my only evidence that the KJV is not a good Bible to read it would be enough for me.

I often wonder how many people in our world have their spiritual maturity stunted because of this legalistic philosophy about the KJV Bible.

They taught that the KJV is the only acceptable version for the Christian to use, it was the closest translation to the original manuscripts, all other versions of the Bible presented mistakes at best and heresy at worst, it was a sin to read versions of the Bible other than the KJV and because of the aforementioned one couldn’t truly be saved unless he/she got the gospel message from the KJV.

I don’t really know where the IFB gets this information to be honest.

I simply took it upon faith like every other teaching that came from the IFB.
