Beloved of the Lord;
Remember: “And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called-χρηματίσαι (chrematisai)-to declare by an oracle, (universally, to receive a name or title, be called)) Christians-Χριστιανούς (Christianous)-belonging to Christ, (a Christian, i.e. follower of Christ:—Christian)) first-πρώτον (proton)-firstly (in time, place, order, or importance):—before, at the beginning, chiefly (at, at the) first (of all)) in Antioch-Ἀντιοχείᾳ (Antiocheia)-Antiochia, a place in Syria:—Antioch.”

"The chart below depicts the two major families of manuscripts. Learn them."
someone might think to ask, Am I saved even if I read another Bible translation other than the King James Version?
“Of course you are! for we are saved by grace through 'the faith'-(τῆς πίστεως-Ephesians 2:8), and not by the Bible version. I myself, began using both the KJV and NASB side by side. And although I am a King James Bible advocate, I do not disfellowship any Christian believer for simply reading a different Bible translation, Or, as Romans 14:4 will say it: “Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand.”
As your fellow-laborer of the faith, I sow, let another water, but it is God who gives the increase of knowledge and understanding. To be frank, I rely primarily on the Greek text (Textus Receptus) above any English translation. However, I favor Bible versions that stem out of the majority line of manuscripts (Antioch) such as the 'Youngs Literal Translation'; I find this translation to be a reliable as well.
If you seek truth and accuracy, then learn the history of your Bible; for I tell you, not all Bibles are translated from the same family line of manuscripts.
I believe the King James Bible to be a faithful translation for the English speaking tongue.
