Difficult Words in the NIV
Proponents of the modern corrupt Bible translations claim that the King James Bible's vocabulary is too antiquating and hard to understand. They make these accusations against the King James Bible in an attempt to justify publishing "newer" and "easier to understand" Bibles. As you will quickly discover below, the New International Version (NIV) is NOT easier to understand. "New" is not always a better thing. In the case of the NIV, it is much worse!
