What Bible do I use?

Before I tell you what I Bible that I do use, let me tell you what Bible not to use – Eugene Peterson’s The Message Bible. Like the new believers in Acts 19:19, if you have The Message Bible, which isn’t a Bible, but a New Age lie from the mouth of Satan, BURN THAT “BIBLE.”

“And a number of those who had practiced magic arts brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted the value of them and found it came to fifty thousand pieces of silver.” – Acts 19:19 ESV

Because the Bible wasn’t originally written in English, I teach from Strong’s Concordance from the original Hebrew and Koine Greek, rather than “KJV only.” I utilize ESV, ISV, KJV, NKJV and NIV Bible translations when teaching.

If you’re a KJV only person, please note that NathanH83 has a great video about using the Septuagint and Dead Sea Scrolls to confirm what the Bible says, whereas the KJV gets it wrong. I’ve seen all sorts of wacky ideas about the KJV, such as it was translated from a single text (it wasn’t) and I’d invite you to actually look at some unbiased Christian sources before you continue damning all other people to Hell.

I’d also love for you to check out this Christian documentary about Christian textual criticism. You can purchase the documentary here: https://faithlife.com/fragments-of-truth
