Is The King James Bible The Only Bible We Should Use?

Many Bible versions and translations.  Do some translations get away from the truth?  Tell us your opinion.

I like the Living Bible as its easyer to read, it seems to flow. I heard it was translated from the original Greek into modern english.(The New Test.) Of course some words are changed and may alter the meaning a bit.. I enjoyed lisening to pastor Melissa Scott, She would roll up her sleeves and really dig in to the different translations, She did one time make a small but smug remark about the Living Bible.
I feel no matter what translation you chose(understanding comes from the Holy Spirit) that the meaning will come through if you study hard enough as the bible explains it's self. It all tells the same story of salvation and redemption.
I generally use the King James Version though they all are a translation. In reality the King James 1611 is a compilation of books that were "allowed" in. I do not find the king's English to be difficult to understand though I can see where some might opt for the New King James version.

In the end they are all translations and the danger lies in getting away from the original text's meaning.
