    And then they stick to their tradition while everyone else starts talking about "the Holy Spirit" including mainline denominations ? I find that quite symptomatic in that case. Of a strong reliance on the past or what one thinks amounts to or embodies the past.

    KJV the reason I use it. As a matter of fact I still use the KJV as my main Bible after all these years just because I'm used to it.

    The NKJV has been around since 1982, without "holy ghost". But that was after your formative years as I recall. Probably explains it.

    Yep. Started using it in '77. But when I read out loud from it when teaching, I use 'you' instead of 'thou', etc. I modernize for whoever I'm speaking to as I read it. So they probably think I'm using the NKJV unless I say 'ghost'. :)

    You know what's weird about it though is that even though the KJV uses 'Holy Ghost', in other places it just translates it 'Spirit'. I haven't looked but it may do it when it's just standalone without the 'Holy' with it.

    The KJV is very old, almost medieval. The wording probably relies on an even older tradition since the Wycliffe Bible from 1380 or so uses the same term. Maybe they thought of the Holy Spirit as the ghost of Jesus or something like that. People back then tended to visualize spiritual things in more concrete terms, whether they were demons, trolls, leprechauns etc.

    Mark 15:37 KJV And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.

    I always use the biblical term "Holy Ghost."

    You must have a real appreciation for history to use the KJV. I love it!
