Dear Buzzoff, you are looking at this from the wrong perspective. Instead of changing the words of the King James Bible to a less offensive and easier to understand version, what you need to do is get used to the language of the Bible, you need to learn what those "archaic" words mean, you need to take less offense at the words of God and remember that God is holy and righteous and did not say them in a derogatory way. Rather than change the Bible to meet the standards of men, every Christian is expected to raise their standard to meet the Bible, and for many of us that has meant being re-educated in the English of the KJB, which is a wonderful blessing and help in this life.
