I have a couple of different versions, but because of the church I go to, I mainly use the New International Version.

The Message is a great paraphrase though, and puts many things in a new light.

NIV for most reading, but I do dive into the NASB quite a bit.
I also cross-reference some things with KJV if I want to get another view.

Here's what some call different versions of the Bible

NIV - Nearly Inspired Version
RSV - Revialed Substandard (per)Version

Very Happy

Sounds like something a "King James Onlyist" would say.

Hey, Fundy--don't forget about the HCSB (Hard Core Southern Baptist bible)!!! lol!


For my personal use, I mostly use the New Living Translation.

lol@ alldat!

You're right, Staybrite. Kent Hovind is a KJV only person, and he was the one who said the above quotes. He also said things like

"Carl Pagan, I mean Sagan"
and
"National Pornographic, I mean geographic"

He's a funny man.

More quotes.......

"I have 3 kids, one of each"
"This isn't my wife, it's a picture of my wife"
(regarding a book on evolution) "They cut down a tree to print that!"

Some of his stuff is brilliant!

True some of his stuff is downright hilarious (I wonder if he is able to keep that sense of humor in prision?).
If you watch enough of his lecture series vids, his rotuine seems to get a little over used. Don't get me wrong he has some great educational information, but I started getting a little tired of some of his back-handed comedy. (but I still laugh at a lot of it).

I know what you mean, staybrite. But I guess that he thinks most people only get to hear a couple of his seminars, so he doesn't seem to mind repeating certain jokes.

It's a shame that he's in prison, as he was due to come over to the UK just before he was arrested (in 6 months or so I think) so I couldn't go to see him. I did see him in 2003 in Wales, which was absolutely great.

I think he was wrong for not paying taxes (although I can understand why he did what he did), but in the end I think he should have paid up, and maybe just stated the case why he didn't think he should (but carried on anyway)

I agree, and dispite the fact that he is serving time in prison for tax evasion I do think his teaching is valid, and very worth everyones time.

Kent Hovind is certainly an entertaining speaker, but some of his material is poorly researched. I would double check before quoting him.

I'm a King Jimmy fan myself, although I'm not a purist by any means. I'm just most comfortable with it because I grew up on it.

Don't think I have ever heard anyone call it that. You might draw down the wrath of the King James Only Movement.

Sweet, it says you can now preorder the English edition. Looks like they haven't printed it yet, but it looks promising.

I'm a huge fan of NIV. When I first came to Christ I used an old english book that contained only the new testament and I couldn't understand a word of it. I prayed for wisdom into the words but it just felt like English class when we have to read Shakespeare, not pretty lol. So anyways on my birthday a year or so later, my friends and youth pastor got me a copy of the NIV bible for teen girls and the translations and ease of communication has been amazing for me

I use the NKJV, it keeps a lot of the poetic structure of the KJV without the thees and thous.

I used to have a parallel Bible back in the day, but that's the one that was stolen from my truck. Since then I use Bible software for any Bible reading/study.
Having said that, I predominantly use the 1984 NIV and NKJV, but am constantly referring to the ESV, TNIV and the NIV 2011, the KJV, Holman Christian, and some others. I do this since it's only 1 click away to parallel any version published. Makes for an awesome rounded study.
Now if I could just have more time.
