What We Teach: The Bible

 

We teach from, preach from, and use only the traditional King James translation of the Bible. This respected translation of the Word of God has stood the test of time and accuracy and is the most universally accepted and owned Bible. Therefore, when we have Scripture memorization, all campers will memorize from this version for uniformity’s sake.

In the last few decades, a number of newer translations have been endorsed by various religions and special interest groups, and some of these contain errors, omissions, and/or deletions. Without addressing the details of this controversy, we believe that any translation that is not accurate is unacceptable. Therefore, since Ironwood serves many churches and families, we have chosen to use the Bible translation that is most accepted among our constituency and the one in which we have absolute confidence in its accuracy.

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. 2 Timothy 3:16–17

We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 2 Peter 1:19–21
