King James Only?

I recently had a post from a guy named Joel and he bought up a really good point. I promote King James but Im not a King James only guy. But personally I use the King James version.I do like the NASB as well as the New King James. Parallel bibles are also very good choices. I gave all my kids King James bibles because I wanted to increase their knowledge as readers. With the new translation most of all paraphrases we really insult our kids and teach them to be dummies. We want everything to be without effort. I think that is a American problem.
I am against The Message because it is what Eugene Peterson thinks the Bible says. And I do not trust what Eugene Peterson has to say at all. Go down and study my post on The Message. And Im sure things will get worse. Problem is we basically had the same Bible for close to 500 years and then a couple other good translations came forward. But since the 60's we have had about 20 different translations sprout up. Had english changed here in America that much so we would need all these translations? Of course not.
So be careful in your choices.
Don't treat your children like dummies (they probably know more than you think).
And research any translation you use.
Keep in mind there are the various camps that don't like or can find fault with anything.
But over 20 translations in 40 years?
Something is up.
Think about it!
The choice though is yours.

I enjoy the New King James Bible because it drops the thees and thous, but you need the King James Bible to study the Greek and Hebrew words effectively. But, the best translation is on how God's words are used in everyday life.
