Question #35

QUESTION: Can someone get saved if you are using a bible other than the King James?

    ANSWER: Yes.

    EXPLANATION: Generally, the facts surrounding the gospel of Jesus Christ and the simplicity of salvation are found intact even in the grossest perversions of Scripture.
    It must be remembered though that the Bible is a weapon in the hand of the Christian. See Hebrews 4:12, Job 40:19 and II Timothy 3:16.
    It is also food that a new Christian might grow properly. See I Peter 2:2.
    It is in these areas that new bibles are weakened. In fact, the very verses given above are altered in many new versions, thus weakening Scripture.
    It is therefore possible to get saved through other versions, but you will never be a threat to the devil by growing.
