Dear Ladies,

"As our opening statement reads at our website, we "grace women" know that the King James Bible is our final authority, and that we are in the "dispensation of the grace of God", given to us by the apostle Paul. Therefore, all scripture quoted on this loop must be from the Word of God, the King James Bible."

This paragraph from our welcome letter probably deserves a little more explanation, as there may be those who do not understand.

Many of us in this group have studied the issue of which Bible is God's Word, and after much study, and comparison of different versions, have come to the conclusion that the true Word of God can only be found in one book, the "Authorized King James Version" of the Bible. If any have not done so, we hope and pray that they will give this subject careful consideration.

This is not something we have come to believe merely because someone told us so, but I, personally, as well as multitudes of other people, have studied this subject for many years. With this careful study, we have come to the conclusion, that God's Word is pure and perfect and that HE HAS TRULY PRESERVED HIS WORD, as He said He would in many passages, including Psalms, chapter 12. This passage says:

Psalms 12:6-7
6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

If God has preserved His Word, where is it? Which one is it? Every version is different and all can be proven to have errors in them except the Authorized King James Bible. (Do not confuse this with the New King James Version. It also contains many errors). We hope and pray that everyone who has not done so, will also honestly study the information so readily available about the history of the Bible, and, if nothing else, will compare the versions to see the errors, and missing verses, in all of the newer versions.

Our belief is that not only does the Bible (The King James Bible, only) contain the Word of God, but that it IS the Word of God. There is a big difference in those two concepts. God says His Word is perfect and He says He will preserve it from "this" generation (David's time), forever. We no longer have copies of the originals in entirety and so God must have preserved his Word in some other form. There must be a version available to mankind today that is totally perfect, inspired of God and totally free of errors, and thus the question has to be, "Which one is it?" There is only one that is perfect, and that is not the offspring of corrupt manuscripts, and therefore is the true Word of God. A simple comparison can help one to readily see what the answer is.

Please understand that we do not harbor any ill feelings toward anyone who does not understand this truth. We do, however, urge anyone still not sure, to carefully consider why we have come to understand these truths. We ask that you go to a few of these sites and be like the Bereans of Acts 17, where the Lord says of them, that they studied to see if "those things were so".

Some of the sites to begin your study are:

Happy studying!
