The King James Bible is Inspired!

By David J. Stewart | February 2010

2nd Timothy 3:16, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable
for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”

       There are some wayward pastors and Christian leaders today who teach that the King James Bible is a divine preservation of the inspired originals, but not itself inspired. Nothing could be further from the truth. God's Word is inspired into whatever language it is translated.

I am sad for any congregation whose pastor misleads them concerning the Word of God. To claim that only the originals are inspired is heresy. To claim that the King James Bible is divinely preserved without being inspired is ridiculous and an utter heresy. How can God's Word be divinely preserved into any language without also being divinely inspired? It is impossible! Anyone who denies the inspiration of the King James Bible is a false prophet.

It is not only the originals which are inspired, but also the different languages into which God's Word is translated. Contrary to popular theological teaching, the originals are NOT even found in Hebrew, Greek and Chaldean. According to Psalm 119:89, the originals existed in Heaven before the first Word in Genesis was ever given to mankind. Psalm 119:89, “For ever, O LORD, Thy word is settled in heaven.” The originals are in Heaven.

Please don't be deceived, many false prophets are deceitful with their words. If your pastor says he believes that the Bible is inspired, ask him if he believes that the King James Bible is inspired? If your pastor says he believes that the King James Bible is a divinely preserved translation of the inspired Word of God, ask him again if he believes if the King James Bible is inspired? That is the big question... does your so-called Christian leader believe that the King James Bible is God's inspired Words? I say to you truthfully, the King James Bible is INSPIRED word-for-word.

Psalm 138:2 says that God has magnified His Word above His holy name. It is a critically important matter to God. Once a pastor attacks the inspiration of the King James Bible, then it's only downhill spiritually from there. God hath chosen the poor, despised and lowly things of this world to confound the wise. It is rich and arrogant men who attack the Bible; It is broken, suffering and lowly men who defend it. If you don't have a King James Bible, then you have a deception.

Please don't be deceived, the King James Bible is God's preserved AND INSPIRED Words. If your pastor doesn't believe that the King James Bible is inerrant, preserved, infallible and inspired, then please find a Christ-honoring church.

The pastor of a very large church recently distributed a booklet to thousands of people, calling those who believe in the inspiration of the King James Bible “rats in the woodpile,” “hillbillies,” “ignorant clergy” and “barbarians.” The pastor said those who say the King James is inspired have “shot themselves in the foot,” and are “espousing Catholic or Charismatic theology.” I guess I'm a big rat then, because I DO believe that the King James Bible is 100% inspired, inerrant, infallible and preserved by God. I must be an ignorant barbaric hillbilly.

The truth is that such pastors have made Satan very glad, shaking people's faith in the Word of Life. My question is... with all the hordes of Hell attacking the Church today, why would any pastor attack the Word of God? It's apostasy! I mean, it's like a general on the battlefield criticizing the weaponry instead of attacking the enemy. We're at spiritual war! Stop tampering with the weapon! There's nothing wrong with our Sword. Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

Please don't be deceived, the King James Bible is God's preserved AND INSPIRED Words. It's not just a divinely preserved translation of the inspired Word of God; the King James Bible is INSPIRED!

Inspiration is Eternal, Not Merely Temporal

The Bible proclaims in 2nd Timothy 3:16-17, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.” That beautiful word “INSPIRED” is the source is much theological debate worldwide. To no surprise, nearly every Bible corrupter claims that “inspiration” only refers to the original manuscripts (or autographs), of which NONE exist today anywhere in the world. The Greek word for inspiration in 2nd Timothy 3:16 is theopneustos, which refers to more than just the giving of God's Word. It also includes the life-giving breath of God that operates through His words...

God breathed the Scriptures into existence, and God breathed life and vitality into the Scriptures. Both of these statements are clearly true, taught unmistakably in the Word of God. When Paul wrote in II Timothy 3:16 that “all Scripture is theopneustos,” he was necessarily implying the first (which fits with the etymology of the word), but the primary focus of his statement was on the second. He was describing a spiritual vitality, living and life-giving, which is not at all limited to the original autographs but exists even in accurate translations. The consensus over many centuries that the word should be translated “inspired by God” or “given by inspiration of God” is correct.


Also, the following helpful information is from Greek scholar John Krinke, taken from his helpful book titled, “What Happened To Bible Faith?”...

I believe that inspiration is not a process but an entity, an eternal entity, a fact or deed. If the KJV translators had believed it was a process they would have translated II Timothy 3:16 “pasa graphe theopneustos” as “All scripture is God breathed.” In that sentence God breathed is an adjective, or present participle used as adjective, which describes the noun scripture. A verbal adjective would imply a becoming, but the Word did not become. He is. But the translators, and their English predecessors, were led to avoid that rendering, and I believe they knew in their hearts that inspiration was an eternal entity, a noun. Even though the phrase “by inspiration of God” describes scripture it is at least equally valid to look at it as a noun which is the object of the sentence. Here Paul could not have been speaking to Timothy of any original manuscripts. Those of the Old Testament were gone. And since II Timothy was probably Paul’s last epistle much of the New Testament already had been written. Graphe in this verse means scripture of both testaments. The Holy Ghost said that Timothy had known the scriptures, and so he had them before him from childhood. 

The word theopneustos was given by the Holy Ghost to Paul. It is unique. It appears only once in the New Testament and is only infrequently seen in earlier pagan Greek writing. Some defenders of the KJV believe that theopneustos is a “verbal adjective,” essentially a past participle. That belief is more compatible with the concept of inspiration as a process which occurred in time, that is, a becoming. They say that “pasa graphe theopneustos” means all scripture is God breathed. If theopneustos is a verbal adjective the translation should be “God breathed” and not “given by inspiration of God.” 

...Scripture is eternal and is given to all, out of every nation. And in the same way the plan of redemption is eternal and given to all, out of every nation. The Bible says Jesus is the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world, from eternity. The Word that became flesh was eternal. It follows that the word of God which we have before us is also eternal. When God breathed the breath of life into Adam he became a living soul; we see the same statement made in Job by Elihu. The breath of God came upon something already completed. Likewise when God breathed His word from eternity inspiration was completed. In I Corinthians 2:7 Paul says that the wisdom he preached and wrote “God ordained before the world unto our glory.” 

...The KJV translators did not claim inspiration for their work because they did not need to. In their day it was generally understood that the Bible was inspired, and to them it was also clear that the Bible was now English and had been since at least the day of Wycliffe; that the Greek and Hebrew already had served their purpose and had long been properly put into English, perhaps as early as Tyndale. The true church, even in the middle ages, has always had inspired scripture before it. An omniscient, omnipotent God would not have allowed anything else.


The word “inspired” signifies “IN-SPIRIT,” that is, God's Holy Spirit breathes through His words to man!!! Jesus proclaimed in John 6:63, “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” Those living “words” cannot possibly lose their “Spirit” and “life” simply because they are translated into a different language. “Inspired” is to in-breathe, and to breath is both the means and evidence of life, for as soon as a person ceases to breathe he is 100% dead. Therefore, the Holy Bible is empowered by the very life of God's Holy Spirit, and is a Living Book. Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”

The old English word “quick” means “alive.” When a mortal man authors a book, it is just a normal book, only as reliable as are men in character, truth and accuracy. Men are imperfect, as are their writings. Men’s books are like themselves—dying creatures; but God’s Book is like Himself—it “liveth and abideth for ever” (1 Peter 1:23). When a man writes a book, it cannot speak for God, it can only speak for a man. But the King James Bible speaks for God, “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost” (2nd Peter 1:21). The King James Bible is inspired!!!

Job 32:8, “But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.”

“The King James Bible is the One they pick-on in religion classes. That's another proof
it's the right One by the way. You can tell a lot about something by its enemies and critics.”
