Why include a King James Bible?

I include the King James Bible in most every sheepskin purchase because it is the Word of God, and some people believe that there are multiple Words of God, which is heresy. There are not multiple Jesus Christs, so there are not multiple Bibles, which I will explain below.

The King James Bible is the traditional English Bible, translated between 1568 (as the Bishop’s Bible) and completed in 1611 (As the King James) that has been the only Bible used for around 400 years by Christians, except for very recently at the start of the 20th century with the addition of “modern translations”.

I believe that modern translations bastardize a beautiful text, and add confusion to otherwise clear doctrine, furthering the divide between brothers and sisters. Some translations attack the trinity of God, and others the divinity of Jesus Christ. Many are missing complete verses, because researchers found one or two manuscripts that were missing them.

I believe that there can only be one valid translation, because the Bible says in John 1:1:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

If in the beginning before even the heaven and the earth were made there was the Word, then the Word of God does not change. Jesus is literally the Word made flesh, as in John 1:14

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

The Bible says that Jesus Christ is the same now and forever in Hebrews 13:8

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”

Therefore, the Word of God can only have one right answer, because Jesus Christ is the same from the foundations of the world. There can not be multiple valid Bibles because there are not multiple Jesuses. Bibles can not say different things, because that would make God a liar, and God cannot lie. Titus 1:2

“In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;”

What about the difference between the Bishop’s Bible, the Geneva Bible, and the King James? Aren’t those all different Bibles? No, they say the same thing verse by verse with the same meaning, but use different grammar because of the radical changes to the English language at that time.
