The KJV will be 400 years old on May 2, 2011.
From a Facebook post:
“In the 14–16th centuries, a controversial question had been dividing nations: should the common man [and woman-W.L.] be able to read God’s Word? It was so incendiary that some people were killed for their translation efforts.”
A video link accompanies the post.
That same controversial question continues to divide people today: should the common man or woman be able to read God’s Word [in the language which they speak and write today]?
