“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.”
King James Version (KJV)

All 66 books of the Bible are in the King James Version old and new testament with nothing added and nothing removed. And to my knowledge the only Bible without copy rights so it can be shared freely.

Most Walmart's have KJV Bibles back in the book section. They have New KJV too.
Compare John chapter 3 to see which one you like best. Hard bound Bibles don't lay flat; so see how that works for you.
I like publisher Thomas Nelson the most.
Priced very reasonable.

Is the King James Bible only about the New Testament ? I know how silly that must sound .

Helen, if you look at that encounter that Jesus had with Nicodemus, Nicodemus had just asked Jesus how someone could be physically born again a second time. He asked this because the spiritual truth that Jesus told him in v 3, that a man cannot see the Kingdom of God unless he is born again, was confusing to him. So Jesus explained this to him in verse 5: "unless a man be born of water (referring to that physical birth that Nicodemus was thinking of) & of the Spirit (referring to that spiritual birth that Jesus was speaking about), that man cannot enter God's Kingdom. In other words, it's my sense that if Nicodemus hadn't brought up the question of the impossibility of a person to be physically born twice into the world, then Jesus probably would not have referred to the necessity of a person being born physically (of water). The "water" we understand can refer also to the amniotic fluid being released in 'physical' birth.
So, you & I need not fear about the words in verse 5 - they were only for Nicodemus (& any of us now) who might think that to be "born of water" meant something else or an added requirement to spiritual birth. No - spiritual birth is only by faith in Christ's work at the Cross & nothing else. If there was something else required, then salvation does not come by faith, and that's not the Gospel message.

RE: John 3 verses 3 and 5. I am confused. Verse 3 you must be born again to enter the kingdom of God.
Verse 5 you must be born of water AND of the spirit.
3: Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
5: Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
QUESTION: If a person is born again of the spirit ONLY and not of water he/she CANNOT enter the kingdom of God?

Limitations of the flesh overshadow humanity and the devil has made it look like it is difficult to obey. Without the presence or the indwelling of the holy spirit the flesh will take over and cost human delay in fulfillment of their destinies. Our Master Jesus is continuously in the prayer alter making intersessions for the saints for their perfection of every imperfections in their lives. Disobedience is too costly. Who can bear the cost? Only the accuser of our brethren. Jesus is LORD

IMO does not mean earn your way,only try to do the best you can according to his commandnents,& a willingness to obey.Not striving for boasymtung,but with a humbled heart,wanting to do the right thing g.We know we are not & will not be perfect except thru Hesus Christ.He also said in his last words on the cross.It Is Finished.That means he paid it all.W ed cannot outdo or do better.There is no more said rifice.Ehen we are his sheep,his followers,& believers,we wish to,& have a yearning to do his commandments.But we are saved by AMAZING GRACE.It is not earned.We are called by our spirit,& freely given his eternal love.

Never strive,just obey
john madden's comment on 2015-07-27 14:52:10:
We cannot do this perfectley although we strive to obey. His commands we yet at times fall short the results of us being saved will be we will strive or make it our goal to obey.

This like many other sayings of Jesus, touches on the main if not the CORE teaching of Jesus. The key words are HATH my COMMANDMENTS and KEEPETH them. Unlike the indoctrination by the Church that "our sins are all nailed onto the cross"; Jesus clearly stated that we MUST DO HIS COMMANDMENTS. It is only if we DO HIS COMMANDMENTS, we will be LOVED by Him and God. It is only then He will MANIFEST Himself. The most difficult of His Commandments is in Matthew 5.44 where He tells us to LOVE OUR ENEMY. Can any reader who reads this, love his/her enemy? I for sure find it difficult. This saying of Jesus is therefore of utmost importance as many other similar teachings. Look at this:
"Why call me lord, lord and not
do the things I tell you to do."
"Not everyone who calls me lord,
lord shall enter into the kingdom
What is being practiced therefore is NOT JESUS' TRUE MESSAGE, but CHRISTIANITY MADE EASY which very much benefits the EVANGELICAL MOVEMENT and to some extent the material help to those who convert or say that they have accepted Him. I like to heat from everyone who cates to disagree.
