For me, the one main blessing in using the King James Version through the years, has been the ease of memorization. Because of it using the King’s English (the Thee’s, Thou’s, verily, peradventure, etc.), it makes for easy memorization: http://www.songsofscripture.com/King-James-Version.html
Another blessing is the great reverence toward God that the KJV text presents. It’s beauty of reverential expression is unequaled: http://www.solagroup.org/articles/historyofthebible/hotb_0015.html
Here is a history of the KJV: http://www.bible-researcher.com/kjvhist.html
I took piano lessons for 15 years and enjoyed playing the classics, but I don’t play anymore.
My father wanted me to become a piano teacher, but I had neither the right amount of talent nor the desire to become one. I still enjoy listening to all genres of music. If I had it to do over again, I would probably learn to play the guitar instead of the piano because of the beautiful sound it produces.
If I’d been given a time to live between 200 A.D. and 1900, I’d probably choose the 1890s. Why? The U.S. was at peace until the first World War and the Restoration Movement was gathering steam.
What year to live? I would have enjoyed living in the middle to late 1800’s during the cowboy era: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cowboy – they worked hard, but they played hard as well. They were a tough breed – had to be in order to survive.
