Before the predominance of the newest translations, there were still plenty of people in error over doctrine. God's Word is preserved sufficently for the salvation of souls in ALL the translations available, IF one is seeking with their heart. Any of the translations currently available will allow you to wrest them to your own destruction. Worship God, not the KJV! I prefer the KJV myself, but use the ESV quite often as well. I would that all churches settled on one or two translations for the sake of consistency, but that alone won't keep them preaching the full gospel if they're not already inclined to it.
BTW, I am 50 now. How time flies! But like others here, I look forward to the end of my days on earth, where a year ago I was nothing but depressed about my life seeming so short. Thank the Lord for His mercy to me, letting me live as I chose for so long, before finding that my Saviour was looking for me! Thank God for His plan of salvation and our Blessed Hope, Jesus Christ!!
I really have appreciated this site. It's great to hear pastors who are not afraid to offend anyone with the truth. I get so disappointed when my pastor seems to be making a good point and then backs off of it so as not to upset anyone. I wish I could find a Godly and un-worldly church in my area, but only God knows where that is. Portland is as near to Gomorrah as I want to be and the Calvinists have watered the Gospel down to where EVERYONE claims to be a Christian these days. But, we know that's not the case, or the lives of people would be changed for good.
God have mercy on us. Thank you for providing this truth where anyone can find it.
