Chatting about the Bible, Part IV

This is the final installment in Dr. Sam Gipp's informal discussion of the King James Bible (unless he decides to do another one!).  As he talks to his young friend, he addresses a number of crucial issues: Do the "new translations" of the Bible really get rid of the archaic words in the Authorized Version?  When we find a word in the KJB that we don't understand, how are we expected to handle it?  And, more importantly, how does God handle it?  The real question, which underlies this entire subject, can be stated quite simply: we all have a version of the Bible that we "prefer."  But - - - if you dare ask the question with an honest heart - - - which version does God prefer?
