A bit about Rick St.James...Rick St.James

This is a LONG story, and too long here to tell. I can, however, try to give the SHORT history.

When I got saved years ago in the United States Navy I grew like a weed in the grace and knowledge of the LORD Jesus Christ, reading the Bible in those early years several times through and memorizing hundreds of verses.

I wanted nothing more than to please my God and tell others about the so great salvation in Jesus Christ.

It was while I was in the Navy that the incident occurred that caused me to chuck out as worse than worthless my New American Standard [NASV] translation of the bible, and go to the FOUNTAIN of the PURE WORD of GOD … the OLD BLACK BOOK [of the Authorized Version of 1611 … commonly known as the King James Bible.]

[Psalm 12:6-7] “The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.”
