Response to Jesus is the Son of God, but
I don't know why you always defend the KJV as being true.
If you read it, and can believe it's all true, that's fine -- that's your opinion and belief.
Some people have a different interpretation of the scriptures than you do, and do not agree with your understanding of them.
Some people think the whole thing is utter nonsense.
Some people -- like me -- think there are many good things and wonderful spiritual wisdom in the Bible, but there are some things in it we do not agree with or believe.
If you "defend" the Bible, it makes no difference if some of us believe differently than you do. It's not going to change anyone's mind. If you believe the Bible to be true, the best thing you can do is act like it. Live your life the way the scriptures say to live your life, as an example for others. Let other people see Christ living in your heart. For example, don't come online intoxicated in the middle of the night, swearing at people and insulting them. That would probably be a good start.
The Bible is not God -- so if you are defending the Bible, that does not mean you are defending God. You are defending a book about God, that was written by men. You do not need to defend God. God does not need that from any of us; God is quite capable of defending himself. Stop trying to defend God, and start trying to reflect God.
