Most of the translators, however, were clergymen belonging to the Church of England, but at least some had Puritan sympathies. King James issued over a dozen rules that the translators had to follow.He disliked the Geneva Bible, the Bible used by the Puritans, because he believed that some of the comments in the margin notes were seditious and did not show enough respect for kings. James’ new translation was to have no commentary in the margins.A few King-James-Only Christians believe that the King James Bible was the first English translation of the Scriptures. John Wycliffe’s Bible was translated from Latin into English and hand copied in the 1400s.
The Geneva Bible (1556-1560) was published by and for Calvinist Puritans.
King James favoured the hierarchical structure of the Church of England and wanted the new translation to use words that supported a bishop-led hierarchy.
In keeping with his preferred views on church government, he specified, “The old ecclesiastical words [are] to be kept; as the word church [is] not to be translated congregation.” (I personally believe “congregation” is a better translation of the Greek word in some verses.) King James also ruled that only his new Bible could be read in England’s churches.
Some Christians and churches are so enamoured with the KJV that they refuse to use, or give credit to, any other translation.
The stance of these Christians has been referred to as King-James-Onlyism.- Blue God's Word - Green Bible Verses - Original flavour Bible Verses - Purle Haze Verse of the Moment - Hot Mustard Word of God - Just Black and White God's Word - A Word from the Word, Pretty and Pink - Sunny Manna For the Moment Make your own custom bible verse now with the The KJV Bible is used in all our English services as it is not copyrighted and it is accepted by many as the best translation to date, it has also been and still is the largest selling translation of the Bible, it is also our favourite Bible.
