Bible Study and Seminary Churches
When a certain percentage of people within a given nation agree to read a Bible study, then that Bible group is referred to as a Biblical Seminary. Because of the fact that so many people in America (including those who are non-religious) are interested in knowing more about the Bible, there are now hundreds of Biblical Seminary churches and denominations located throughout the country.
If you are interested in becoming a part of such a church, it is important that you understand that the KJV or King James Version of the Bible is the preferred Bible to use within the Christian community. This is the Bible that was used by the Apostles (pastors) of the first Christian churches (also known as Biblical Seminaries). There are several reasons why it is a preferred Bible to use within this community.
First, you should understand that the KJV has been around for centuries and continues to be used by millions of people in America. Most Biblical Seminary churches are not interested in changing the way in which they teach the Bible because this would be an inconvenience to their followers. For example, if your Seminary wanted to change the KJV as the preferred Bible, they would have to either re-translate the text, or change the display to include it on the Bibles.
Second, the KJV was published by Thomas Nelson and has a large print run. As such, when a certain percentage of people within a Biblical Seminary decide to start using the KJV, the majority of people within the community will use the same Bible. There is no way that a Biblical Seminary could get away with using a Bible other than the KJV if they are going to start imposing their own beliefs on the congregation.
Third, the KJV is a slightly older version of the Bible. This means that it contains fewer grammatical errors, and it does not contain various extraneous words that the Bible was revised for. These three major advantages over the KJV are enough to warrant using the King James Version as the preferred Bible in this situation.
Once you are confident that you understand the advantages and disadvantages of the King James Version, then it is time to decide whether you want to take a Bible study. As I mentioned above, most Biblical Seminary churches will not make the choice for you. As such, you will have to sign up for a Bible study at the site of your choice, or in a home where the staff members at the Biblical Seminary are available to discuss the Bible with you.
You will also need to find out the specific hours of study that are available for you within your chosen Biblical Seminary. Once you do this, it is important that you make a commitment to finish the Bible study. For example, once you complete a year of study, you will have finished the work necessary to complete the required certification for a “King James Bible” license, which is used by the United States government to verify that the Bible being used within American government institutions is the same one used in various Biblical Seminary churches.
Regardless, of whether you decide to take a Bible study at a Biblical Seminary, or attend a Church that has a Biblical Seminary Pastor, make sure that you read the Bible cover to cover, as well as the text of your Bibles before you start. Make sure that you follow the recommended time frame, and ensure that you are completely immersed in your Bible study before you move on to the next one. Although your Bible study might be difficult at times, it is much better to understand the Bible correctly than to attempt to learn it half-heartedly.
