I observed that whenever I desired to understand or meditate on the Word of God, I always go back to the KJV. Whiles the new versions speak contemporary English using modern figures of speech, they tend to rob me of the spiritual aura that surrounds the Authorized King James Version. Recently, I stumbled on Robert Breaker 111 through his Utube teaching on Biblical economics and searched to know him close. Then like Smith Wigglesworth who was called a ‘man with one book’, did not read any other book but the Bible, I discovered Robert only read The Authorised King Version of the Bible. ’’
Sometimes, the interpretation from these new versions, what is called ‘What’s up Bibles’ make me wonder if I was actually reading a Holy Book…loose of reverential language could be absent. But it also bothered me how this could be affecting clean understanding and revelation. Won’t it put us at the risk of running afoul of Revelation 22:18, 18? ‘’ For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book’’. One of our American Professor was used to saying jokingly that false prophets, preachers, churches, etc, preach, teach or prophesy 90% truth and 10% untruth. Like the guile of Satan that 10% is their core. ’’
The Bible is a definite book of vibrant spirituality. The words of the Bible are God’s intentional will for man. The words of the Bible is spirit and life. The words may be figurative, symbolic in some ways. But the Bible is not liberalism. It is literal in context and practical reality. I see a new movement in the horizon. #kingjamesonly.
But why King James Only?
Perhaps, before the question is answered, who is Robert Breaker 111?
In his Author Profile by Xulon Press, ‘’ Robert Ray Breaker III is a King James Bible Believing Independent Baptist. His father led him to the Lord on July 29, 1992 in Milton, Florida.
A few years later he enrolled in the Pensacola Bible Institute and graduated there in 1998 with a Bachelors of Divinity.
While attending Bible School, Robert pastored, Garcon Point Baptist Church for a short time.
Two weeks after graduation from Bible College, Robert went to Honduras, where he eventually became a Missionary for seven years on the field, planting several churches.
Today Robert is a member of an Independent Baptist church in Monterrey, Mexico, and travels extensively throughout Central, South, and even North America fulfilling his God-called ministry as a Missionary Evangelist to the Spanish-speaking people.
He also desires to reach his own English Speaking people in this day and age of apostasy, compelling them to return to the old time way, and stand firmly on the Biblical doctrines of salvation, sanctification, and the Holy Scriptures.
Bro. Breaker also runs BREAKER PUBLICATIONS, a small printing ministry, focusing on printing good, sound, doctrinal works founded on the Scriptures, not on tradition’’.
So, why the King James Version? He writes under the title KING JAMES ONLY.
‘’ Ecclesiastes 8:4 states: "Where the word of a king is, there is power..." Thank God for the AUTHORIZED King James Bible, the number one bestselling book of all time! Not only has it brought more revival than any other book on the face of the earth, but it is also the only pure English Bible in existence today. Why? Because it's based on the right texts, which came from Antioch, where Christ's disciples were first called Christians according to Acts 11:26, ‘’ … And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch’’; and Jerusalem, where true copies were preserved by the Levitical priests. These pure texts are known as the GREEK TEXTUS RECEPTUS and the HEBREW MASORETIC TEXT.
All new versions of the Bible come from the corrupt, critical texts of Rome, intermingled with Greek Philosophy, with a little papist traditionalism mixed in, and adulterated by a new-age Satanic conspiracy, as all new versions of the Bible are based upon the diabolical WESTCOTT and HORT GREEK TEXT, and the German rationalist KITTLE HEBREW TEXT. If you don't believe me, just see Acts 8:37 in an NIV. I'll give you 100 dollars if you can find it in the text! It's simply not there’’.
I did a quick check on The Layman’s Parallel Bible (Copyright 1991 by The Zondervan Corporation), The NIV Stewardship Study Bible (Copyright 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society) and The Living Bible (Copyright 1971 by KNT Charitable Trust.)
My findings are below.
The Layman’s Parallel Bible
There was no verse ‘37’ in the body of Acts Chapter 8. However, said,’’ If you believe with all your heart, you may,…’’ at the footnote. But why was ‘37’ yanked out of the body context?
The NIV Stewardship Study Bible
The finding was the same as in the preceding The Layman’s Parallel Bible as shown above.
The Living Bible, paraphrased. A Thought- for-Thought Translation
Verse ‘37’ was there with an ‘f’ reference to the footnote with the note, ‘f. Many ancient manuscripts omit verse 37 wholly or in part’.
Robert Breaker gives greater details in a research paper he did as a requirement for an English Composition Class at the University of West Florida under the topic. Why the King James Bible is better than any other translation.
Why the KJV is Superior to all Modern New Age Versions
He wrote, ‘’ so here is my argument.
THE AUTHORIZED VERSION OF 1611
The Authorized Version of 1611, commonly called the "King James Version" or KJV, is the best translation of the Bible in English compared to the other modern English translations since 1881. The Majority text, upon which the KJV is based, has the strongest claim possible to be regarded as an authentic representation of the original text based on its dominance in the transmissional history of the New Testament text.

In 1455 Johann Gutenberg printed the first book ever produced mechanically, a German Bible which was translated from the Textus Receptus. This is also the text that Martin Luther and the Protestants of the Reformation knew to be the Word of God. In 1611 King James authorized the translation of an English version of the majority text, from which the King James Bible was created.
The second type of Greek manuscripts is the Hesychian or "Alexandrian" family of manuscripts, which consist of Aleph, B, Vaticanus, and Sinaitcus. These manuscripts originated in Egypt and were the work of several professional philosophers at the world famous university in Alexandria. Origen (184-254) became head of this university and rewrote these manuscripts with his own philosophical interpretations. Scholars there had no obligation to the church of God, so they felt free to translate these manuscripts liberally. This type of text, called the Minority text, was used by Jerome to translate the "Vulgate," and is the basis of all the corrupted versions.Codex Alexandrinus, the oldest Greek witness of the Byzantine text in the Gospels, close to the Family Π (Luke 12:54-13:4)
These Greek manuscripts many times do not even agree with each other. The Vaticanus and Siniaticus manuscripts are part of this group. Vaticanus, or "Aleph," was written on fine vellum (animal skin), not usual of Christian literature which was generally written on papyrus paper. It was found in the Vatican library in 1481 A.D. In spite of being in excellent condition, it leaves out Genesis 1:1-Gen. 46:28, Psalms 106-138, Matt. 16:2 3, Hebrews 9:14-13,25, The epistles of Paul and all of Revelation (Burton p. 60). The Vaticanus also contains the Apocrypha.
The Siniaticus or "B" is a manuscript which was found in 1844 (after the KJV had been in existence for 233 years) in a trash pile in St. Catherine's Monestary near Mt. Sinai, by a Mr. Tischendorf. It contains nearly all of the New Testament plus the "Shepard of Hermes" and the "Epistle of Barnabas." However, it omits 10, 20, 30, even 40 words frequently. Whole letters, and sentences are left out. The Vaticanus and Siniaticus both leave out the last 12 verses of Mark concerning the resurrection of Christ, but there are 618 other Greek manuscripts that do not. The Vaticanus and Siniaticus even disagree with each other over 3,000 times in the Gospels alone. Most translators erroneously accepted the Vaticanus and Siniaticus simply because they believed them to be old.
The modern versions had to mainly translate from the Textus Receptus, since it contains the majority of the surviving Greek. But whenever the Textus Receptus disagrees with the Vaticanus or Siniaticus, the 19th and 20th century translators preferred these corrupt manuscripts over the "Received Text" (58).
There are 5,309 surviving Greek manuscripts that contain all or part of the New Testament. These agree together 95% of the time. The other 5% accounts for the difference between the KJV and other versions. Of the four uncials, Aleph (Siniaticus), B (Vaticanus), C, and D. Burgon writes: "All four are discovered on careful scrutiny to differ essentially, not only from the 99 out of 100 of the whole body of extant, but even from one another (Burgon 120). Riplinger calls this the 1% minority text, which supplanted the Majority Text with its almost two millennia standing (Riplinger 475). Two professors, Brooke Foss Westcott and Fenton John Anthony Hort, at Cambridge University did not agree with the King James Bible, so they wrote their own revised text using these 1% of the manuscripts in addition to the Textus Receptus to form a "New" Greek Text which has been used for all subsequent English American versions since 1881. Biblical scholars of the time called Westcott and Hort's Greek Version:
"strongly radical and revolutionary," and "deviating the farthest possible from the Received Text" (432). Half of the Church of England at the time scorned Westcott and Hort's work, as did the American branch of the Episcopal Church (435). John Burgon, the Dean of Westminster, and the pre-eminent Greek textual scholar of the day, said: ...the Greek Text which they have invented proves to be hopelessly depraved throughout...It was deliberately invented...The underlying Greek is an entirely new thing, is a manufactured article throughout...The new Greek Text...is utterly inadmissible...Proposing to enquire [sic] into the merits of the recent revision of the Bible, we speedily became aware that...the underlying Greek had been completely refashioned throughout. It was not so much a new version as [it was a] New Greek Text [which] was full of errors from beginning to end...Shame on...those most incompetent men who finding themselves in an evil hour occupied themselves...with falsifying the inspired Greek Text...Who will venture to predict the amount of mischief which must follow, if the New Greek Text...should become used (Burton 114).
Hort and Westcott are more liberal than most bible scholars. Hort admits: "...I perhaps have more in common with the liberal party than with others...I look upon freedom and a wide toleration as indispensable (Riplinger 628). Hort and Westcott gave a more liberal translation, while the scribes and monks that worked on the King James Version translated it with more scrutiny.
Hort's heir was Eberhard Nestle, who continued the liberal translations from the New Greek Text. In 1898 Nestle cloned the text for a new generation of bible critics when he published his Nestle-Aland Text. Riplinger claims it would shock even the most liberal reader with all of its deletions and could not be sold as a "New Testament" (493). Nestlé’s own statement in the preface of the Nestle-Aland Text cautions readers that it is not the Traditional Greek Text, but rather a "Kind of New Textus Receptus" (493). Almost all the modern versions are based on the Nestle-Aland, such as the NASB (New American Standard Bible), NIV, NKJV, etc... Clarence Larkin suggests there are three ways to read the Bible: figuratively, symbolically, and literally (Larkin 2). But, writers of the modern versions translate the bible liberally, and have no respect for Christian doctrines. So they feel freer to change, add to, and subtract words, phrases, or sentences.

KJV 4.4 4.6 6.7 7.5 5.8
NASB 4.7 5.1 6.8 7.7 6.1
NKJV 5.2 4.6 10.3 7.7 6.9

NIV 5.1 4.8 6.4 7.1 8.4
By this chart, the King James Bible is definitely the easiest bible to read. Even a fifth grader can read it! In the King James Bible, Revelation 22:18,19 says:’’ For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book’’. Modern versions not only add to the King James Bible and the Textus Receptus, but they also take away from them. For example, most modern versions leave out this before mentioned passage (Revelation 22:18, 19).
One of the strongest pieces of evidence is John 18:36. In this verse all modern versions leave out the word "now," whereas it is in the King James Version and in every known Greek manuscript.
‘’ Jesus answered, my kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence’’. John 18:36(Authorized King James Version)
‘’The Jesus answered, ’I am not an earthly king. If I were, my followers would have fought when I was arrested by the Jewish Leaders. But my kingdom is not of the world’’. John 18:36(The Living Bible).
A Wheaton professor, Dr. Gordon Fee agrees: "The contemporary translations, as a group, have one thing in common: they tend to agree against the KJV...in omitting hundreds of words, phrases, and verses" (Riplinger 28). Some of these words or phrases don't have much value, yet, many versions also take out words that do have a lot of meaning and sometimes even whole doctrines. The introduction to the Catholic edition warns: This translation cannot be used as a basis for Doctrinal or traditional disputes...People from various doctrinal traditions may...be chagrined at the particular translations found within this volume (Kohlenberger 89). Not only do modern versions take away from and add to the KJV and Textus Receptus, but they also do it in a sanctimonious way. The Living Bible is a good example:
KJV: "thou wast altogether born in sins."
The Living Bible: You illegitimate bastard."
KJV: "Thou son of a perverse rebellious woman.
The Living Bible: "You son of a bitch."
Good News for Modern Man says in Acts 8:20:
"May you and your money go to Hell."
KJV: "Thy money perish with thee."
This language by the modern versions is very unbecoming for a book that is supposed to represent the Church.
The KJV has the greatest claim to be the best translation. The New Greek Text differs from the Textus Receptus in over 5,337 places. The KJV comes from the purest set of manuscripts and was translated by scholars (under the authority of King James), not by liberal university professors with no conviction to translate it accurately. The King James Bible has sold over 809,000,000 copies in 300 languages since 1611, and is the only Bible that is not copyrighted. All modern versions written by men are copyrighted and require the author's permission in writing for one to copy it at length.
