    If words change meaning over time then the translation should change to fit those meanings.

      That is the very reason we have newer English translations than the KJV

          The essential truth of scripture is found in most of the Newer translations (except for the politically correct ones).
          That does not excuse the error of using the archaic language of the KJV to promote doctrines that are based only on the peculiar wording found in the KJV when those words have different meanings now than they did when the KJV was written.
