Why choose a particular version?
So, while it may lead to "which version is the inspired word of god?", that isn't so much my rub as is the question "why do you choose one version over the other in a particular instance to suit your argument, then a different version for a different argument?".

There are several reasons I choose a particular version. For personal use it is really simple, I grew up using the KJV and love the poetic language and feel. Then as I learned more about its history I began to see the attempts in the KJV to avoid conflict and promote a peaceful society.

During discussions and debates though I usually try to select a version that will help me communicate with the person I'm replying to while not obscuring the larger goal of reaching the whole audience. It sometimes means looking through several versions to find the one that uses language that I hope will resonate with the particular person I'm debating.

As far as the English version is concerned, that there are many different unneccesary versions. I use a King James.

So you like the politically correct version created so that it would not overly offend Church of England members or the Roman Catholic Church and which was meant to support the Divine Right of Kings?

You really don't know anything about Christian History do you?

Do you know who King James was, what the situation was in England at the time, that it was a major transition of power from the House of Tudor to the House of Stuart?

You call the only Church that Jesus actually commissioned the Whore of Babylon?

Do you have any idea what the COE is?
