    Another heresy of mine is that I refuse to use the King James language when singing or praying. I have been called out multiple times for this, but I am stubborn. To me, it feels like a street language that is offensive to use to someone I respect.
    People sometimes forget that it isn’t how Jesus spoke. What Jesus said was translated into this street dialect.

    ?? Although I found Dr. Wayment's suggestion that we update our English translation persuasive, I don't think your description fits the objective of the King James translators. They were attempting to be more "formal", deliberately using language that was "upper class" and out-of-date even at the time they executed their translation. Maybe I misunderstand your meaning.
