The Textus Receptus or Received Texts are not the most reliable Greek manuscripts available, that is why almost all modern Greek scholars donot use them in their translation work. With the dicovery of more ancient and more reliable Greek texts, scholars were able to see where the 1611 KJV had many grave defects and was in need of revision. As a pastor I prefer the New Living Translation (NLT) or the TNIV as they are far more acurate than the 1611 KJV and for the fact that these bible versions do not add or take away from the original texts, whereas the 1611 KJV has added many verses that are not found in the original manuscripts.
