You Don’t Know Greek!?

Do you reason that until you know Greek, Aramaic, and Hebrew you somehow lack what you need to really get a lot out of your Bible? To take a different tack, are you one of those who think you need to have and/or look at a lot of Bible versions other than the King James? Now, I have no problem with knowing the original languages or using tools to gain insights from these languages. I can even get some good out of other versions, if I give them no more credibility than a good commentary; sometimes not as much. I am not against learning and I value good books. However, after all is said and done, your KJV is enough. If you never have any other book, you are thoroughly equipped for Spiritual Life and growth with your KJV. For over three hundred years, God's Word has been preached, souls have been saved, Christians have been strengthened, missions have been undertaken and have reached multitudes, all with mostly the KJV. Many of these other aids were not available or were not in existence during much of that time, yet God's work was done with God's blessing. Many would not know how to use some of these tools and their whole help is the KJV. With that alone, they come to Christ, grow, mature, and finally arrive in Heaven. Avail yourself of any Spiritual resources that are available to you but never let them replace, equal, or overshadow your involvement in the KJV. Selah! An indispensable rule is to check everything against your KJV. If it is in agreement with your KJV, well and good. If not, don't waste time on it. The KJV is absolutely reliable and sufficient, if you never have any other aid.    Ron
"For the Word of God is quick (living), and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" (Hebrews 4:12).
