Literal Translations

  2. New King James Version

  4. ESV
  5. Christian Standard Bible
  6. New English Translation (A newer translation we are still evaluating, as many are.  For now, we would recommend this as a supplement to one of the above)

Good for New Christians – Thought for Thought Bibles.

Some people use these their entire lives, which is fine.  We recommend moving up from thought for thought to literal translations noted above to enable exegesis of the Bible.

Where to Start Reading

Coming soon.  

Go to the Scriptarium and review The Gospel at the link provided.  

Theologians will give you great sections of the Bible to read, in context.


Avoid, Reject, Run

  • The Message Bible (MSG)
  • The Passion
  • The Living Bible (TLB)
  • New World Translation – Jehovahs witnesses rewrite of scripture, heretical. 
  • Book of Mormon – Reinterprets scripture including heretical doctrines. They use KJV Bible, but they preach, teach, and live by their book.
  • The YouVersion Bible App (It is free and full of charismatic false teacher references)

Churches using these Bibles should be avoided, like RUN!!
