Internet Bible reading surges, now 4 in 10 read God's words digitally

God is still great in the eyes of Americans, even on the internet. While an amazing 88 percent of the nation’s homes own a Bible, more and more are switching to the internet, cell phones and iPad for their weekly inspiration, according to a sweeping new survey of Bible use.

In their latest survey of Bible use, the American Bible Society finds that 41 percent of Americans used the internet to read the good book on a computer. Some 29 percent said they searched Bible verses on a cell phone and 17 percent said they read an electronic version of the Bible on a Kindle or iPad.

The trend is similar in the news business, with the readers shifting to digital over paper. ...

Dorcas, I'm glad you're not confused, you can somewhat grounded in God's Word, even using the KJV, though I would still say to anyone at least use a copy of The Ryrie KJV Study Bible Hardback-Red Letter, if you're going with a printed Bible. Most computer programs, including the AND BIBLE for Android, Strong's Concordance/Dictionary downloaded at the same time as the KJV. Something you'll really need if Elizabethan is not your native tongue. A comparative Study Bible which includes other Bibles besides the AV, or a copy of the NKJV can also be used to translate the KJV into understandable English.

Sorry big D, whoever you are Really I heard on this cultic nonsense about the AV, e.g., The Truth About KJV Only: The Mormon,Ecumenical,Homosexual,and Neo-Nazi Agendas (Oh this author tried to say something nice about the Trinity Bible Society, you can at least read that part) that I probably type to fast -- By the way, John U.K., A Chart for comparing Oxford and Cambridge KJV Editions
.

Need Cambridge (and probably Oxford) edition of the "unchangeable" KJV? Go to, Crosswire Applications, I know that E-Sword has the real 1611 KJV, don't bother with all those false revisions after that, like the 1769. Oh, but of course if you have a PC and want an accurate Bible as the KJV isn't then get a free copy of NASB from The Lockman Foundation -- Free Downloads have a first rate Bible in actual English instead of one in bombastic Elizabethan. So, Dorcas do we have you sorted out now?

Dorcas, it is certainly senility. You can tell someone the same thing dozens of times, and they will still ask you the same question again. And now confusing people just because their name starts with D, it's a wonder he didn't call you David.

Ah well, I'm not going to mock the afflicted. Perhaps a prayer that he stops eating and promoting the GM tripe.

I realise it is not easy for a senile person to take God seriously, nor his word, but there are no mitigating circumstances at the judgment seat of Christ. If he mock God's words, Jim will discover that God is not mocked, for God takes his words very seriously; they are God's words to men, they are promises, warnings, exhortations.

No, Mike your wrong, all it does is have to sound good, like Billy Shakespeare.

A Bible has to be in contemporary English and it has to be accurate, so no matter what your definition of great literature is or was, the KJV now isn't a great Bible. Remember, Restating The Obvious About Bible Translations.

John U.K., I still haven't found out which of the Authorized versions of the KJ, you guys use Cambridge or Oxford? Everything after 1611 has to be a corrupted version of the AV, so I also assume you use the one of that date?

I could be mistaken, but doesn't great literature have to say something, to be considered great, not just sound good? Birds sound good to me.

The "United Bible Societies" is the ecumenical movement of Bible publishers which enfolds nearly every Bible Society throughout the world. Alert? Yes!

Think about it.

The marginal notes in the New King James Version often have the letters NU by the side of them. What does this mean? NU is short for:

N = The Nestle/Aland text (which is different from the Received Text)

U = United Bible Societies

Ahem. So Jim is supportive of The United Bible Societies and the Nestle/Aland text, which evolved from the text by Westcott and Hort, who arrived at their peculiar greek text by using the Vaticanus Text (found in......The Vatican Library!) and the Sinaiticus Text (found in......a monastery in Sinai!)

All in all, if you dip your foot in ecumenism, you will eventually turn ecumenist, and if you turn ecumenist, you will also turn apostate.

IMHO

Translations Not Recommended

Advances in understanding the text of the New Testament, as well as changes in the English language, have made the Geneva Bible (GEN), King James Version (KJV), and Young's Literal Translation far obsolete. Their rating is lower for the fact that, while the most formally literal, none of them pay enough attention to the nuances of grammar and syntax. The KJV would have done better if it had kept to Tyndale's simple style instead of the elevated language that soon became outdated. The 21st Century King James Version (KJ21) might have outdone the NKJV if it had been more consistent in updating the KJV's archaisms and correcting more obvious errors such as Easter in Acts 12:4....

Ah T.S., KJV, is a poor translation, but great literature, Part II: The Reign of the King James (The Era of Elegance), as we have admitted in the past, like Shakespeare it is a great literary work.

However, you still have told me which version of the KJV is the true version? Oh, and how about the changes after 1769, So, do you prefer the Cambridge or Oxford editions? Do we use a 1769 KJV?. You can get both versions in the AND BIBLE, if memory serves.

No, we wouldn't used anything that was turned out by that man of Satan, Erasmus So, TS, of course we wouldn't use such a flawed version of the Bible as KJV. Part III: From the KJV to the RV (from Elegance to Accuracy).

But, hey, I never stopped you from using such a flawed version, but again, Final Authority -- Answers to a reader's question of KJV as his final authority which version?

Jim. You really need to get yourself and your churches congregation to the REAL Word of God King James Version.
Remember that is what GOD Himself has been using for centuries. HE didn't need to change Books. As they say if it ain't broken don't fix it.

Now think about it Jim - Would the Lord use a couple of heretics such as W&H to change what HE is using to build the Church? Of course HE wouldn't every Christian knows that for a fact.

AV1611, I have good news for you! Considering were 10 or 11 revisions of the AV from 1611 to 1769, you can get a very good copy of the 1611 version via e-Sword. No doubt you would think that the 1769 version is quite corrupt, but the 1611 version not only has the marginal notes, but the apocrypha as well! I doubt if it has the list of Saints' Days. It will also be amiss if it doesn't have the full preface, but I doubt if it was left out.

Of course for us who want an accurate representation of God's Word, in contemporary English and not the foreign tongue of Elizabethan, you can get for free and find on the Internet the ESV. Also if you have a standard PC you can download the gold standard of accuracy for free from The Lockman Foundation -- Free Downloads The New American Standard Bible.

Most bible programs such as the AND BIBLE app, do have the KJV 1769 and the James Strong Concordance (dictionary) which is of course a necessity for the KJV 1769.
