From THE STANDARD (Zimbabwe's leading Sunday newspaper):
The King James Bible is the first English translation of the Christian Bibles. Some people name it “the 1611 Authorised King James”. The Church of England (now known as the Anglican Church) undertook the translating work in the year 1604 and completed it in the year 1611.
The translation work was done as a directive from King James the first, during the time of his reign in England. The New Testament was translated from Greek and the Old Testament from Hebrew. Translation work was undertaken by several scholars, most of whom were from the Church of England. The translating members were arranged into six committees, each working on certain parts separately. Drafts produced by each committee were then compared and revised for harmony with each other. The translation and compilation of the Bible was supported by donations of members of the Church of England. The final translation product was printed and published by Robert Baker in the year 1611.
I believe that the Bible is a sacred book of God. It is His constitution or His infallible message to mankind. The Devil hates people who study their bibles. He knows that the more they study it, the more they become dangerous to his kingdom. I also believe that to avoid further damage to his kingdom the Devil designed a malicious master plan of printing and circulating counterfeit bibles.
Christians should therefore be aware of such bibles which are now in circulation. There is nothing good about them besides seeding deception and heresies among Christians. It is encouraged to check and see if your bible is not one of these deceptive types.

COMMENT: Well don't just sit there staring at your computer screen. Off you go and check. And if you're not sure if your Bible is one of the deceptive types contact Simukai direct c/o The Harare Clinic For The Religiously Deranged, 666 Mugabe Iz Da Boss Avenue, Harare, IH8 YT, Zimbabwe.
