A King James Tribute to 2011

And a 2011 tribute to the King James Bible after 400 years.

As the year 2011 gives up the ghost, it is good to remember that, though in the new year we will reap what we have sown, God is ever good despite the fact that we and our world are not.

In a new year, there will still be no rest for the wicked, and those of little faith will still suffer the consequences, but the pardoning One will forgive a multitude of sins for those who repent.

The powers that be, by definition, will remain so even when names change, for God has ordained this, but it must be remembered that they have but feet of clay.

To everything there is a season, and the passing of one leads to another. The passing of one translation, dear King James Bible, leads to another, better in some ways, inferior in others.

And the passing of a year, an artificial division of time, leads to another, providing a valuable point of reflection and resolution.
