Understanding  Why the Devil hates:
the King James Version Bible
"In 1611the KJV served only 5 million English-speaking people. Today the KJV could
be used to bring this century's 2
billion English speakers to a saving knowledge of
Jesus Christ (
49% of these are native speakers of English; 51% of these can speak
some English as their second language). This is
33% of the world's population, which
is
16% of the people who have ever lived.   The teaching of English is now required in
most nations of the world. English Professor, Seth Lerer, feels that `in many ways, the
central theme of 20Th  century English is its status as a global language'
English wins, not by force of numbers, but by weight of its intrinsic character, which
linguist H.L. Mencken calls, "The prevalence of
very short words in English . . . [a]
succinct, straightforward, and simple tongue - in some of its aspects, in fact almost as
a kind of baby-talk."
The international English of the KJV can communicate the gospel to 33% of the
world's population. This is demonstrated in upcoming chapters. It can reach more
people than any other single Bible available today. New versions are not written in
international English.
This is why the devil hates the King James Bible." (Excerpt from:
In Awe of thy Word, by G.A. Riplinger)
