Sometimes it takes a series of prompts by the holy spirit to gentle bump us in the right direction. One such area this has happened, especially recently, has been in the Bible version that i have chosen to read. I fell into the trap that many Christians fall into.
I did not, and believed i could not, read the “archaic” 1611 King James Bible. Very, very quickly in my walk i made a conscious choice to avoid it convincing myself that i would not be able to read it let alone understand it.
I had all the right intentions, in wanting to read the word of God, but no consideration of the choices i was making… nor the potential consequences.
