But it isn't.
I have never had the pleasure of asking this question to a loyal KJV only Christian. I personally have four translations, and I am no longer partial to the KJV. Although it is my most favorite. Having a non English tongue early in life, I find the KJV more difficult to read. I plan on purchasing NKJV pretty soon, I'd like to see how it sounds.
God bless and Praise Him!!!
