I believe that there are other good forms/translations of the Holy Bible, In my opinion, There are many different good translations of the Bible like the NKJV or the NIV that is used in many Baptist Christian churches I end my first argument.

The Byzantine family, Also known as the Traditional or Majority Text, Was the text used and preserved by the Greek Church from the time of the apostles until the era of movable type printing. It is from this family that the manuscripts known as the Textus Receptus (also known as the Received or Stephens Text) were produced. The Textus Receptus was the translation base for the original German Luther Bible, The New Testament into English by William Tyndale, The KJV and others. The Alexandrian Text manuscript family is composed of texts that were generally circulated in the region of Alexandria. This family essentially disappeared for centuries after 500 AD, Only to be found again in the mid-1800s. Although these manuscripts are quite old, They often disagree with one another and show significant signs of grammatical revision. It is from this family that the Sinaiticus and Vaticanus manuscripts are produced.

Understanding the manuscripts, My family uses only the King James Bible. If you are a more mature Christian and you prefer to compare texts then do so, But just remember translators take a lot of license as some idiomatic and figurative phrases do not readily translate out into the English language well.

Many of the newer versions have stopped using the Received Text for their New Testaments and are instead using the Vaticanus manuscripts with their many errors. It pays to be careful in selecting a new copy of God's word. Not only are ministers preaching unscriptural doctrines the very Scriptures themselves are being corrupted as well. We must be very aware of these facts in order to discern God's truth from lies.

@thebolddebator- the thing is, The KJV wasn't even translated till the 1600's. If it's the only right version, Then what would the people who spoke English use before it was created?

Well @adrian14 I believe it is the best and only right version.

I think there is a difference between the best version and only good version. Even if the King James Version is the best version, I don't think it is the only good version
