A good sermon is not taken out of scripture, a good sermon comes out of scripture. Every religion out there has taken stuff out of scripture to form their religion. I believe if we argue about which version to use, we forget about message that is in bible.

Another comment for those who insist that only the KJV is an inerrant english version of scripture. The bias of the KJV translators is easily seen in their decision to transliterate the greek word "baptizo", which literally translates"to immerse or dip" in greek, to the word "baptize". The official stance of the church at the time of King James was to sprinkle as a form of "baptism". To insist that the original greek was in truth to immerse or dip would have been heresy, and heads might have rolled. So the translators intentionally lied in order to make the KJV match the official policy of the church.
