QUESTION: Don't King James Bible believer's "worship" the Bible? Didn't God destroy the originals because He didn't want these people to venerate them?
ANSWER: No and no.
EXPLANATION: Many critics of the perfect Bible
have become very frustrated in recent years. This is due to the fact that their entire argument against the Bible has been systematically destroyed by historical fact, their own shortfall of scholastic ability and the consistent blessing of the King James Bible by the Holy Spirit.
In a desperate attempt to "sling mud" at Bible believers, they make the two statements found above.
Do King James Bible believers worship the Bible? No. They do not pray to it as they do to Jesus Christ. They do not preach that "the Bible saves" but that Jesus saves. They blissfully mark notes all over their Bibles, though none would dare to do so to Jesus Christ.
There is not even enough evidence to mistakenly believe that King James Bible believers worship the Bible.
Therefore, the charge is unfortunately born of malice not sincerity.
Did God destroy the originals to keep King James Bible believers from someday worshipping them? No. Nothing could be farther from fact.
God allowed the originals to pass off the scene because their only value, was their words, which He preserved through copies. Once the originals had served their purpose and were copied, they received no loyalty from God or His people.
If the originals were somehow to "miraculously" appear today, they would be of little interest to Bible believers since they make little of them now.
If anyone would venerate them, it would probably be the crowd that makes so much of them today, the Bible critics.

Hard on for the KJV award! No one has ever been so worthy.

So... you worship the bible. Gotcha.
6/8/2008 4:24:35 AM
What was that? I couldn't hear you over all the KJV-worshiping.
6/8/2008 4:31:54 AM
I dunno, I'd like to take a Sharpie and write some notes on Jesus.
I'm sure he'd like my little kitten-emblem scribbled on his elbow. Jesus likes cute things.

WTF? This guy actually thinks the Bible is "perfect?"
Well, to be fair, he probably isn't familiar with the actual words in them, or might not have the acumen to understand "all them big words."
6/8/2008 4:43:23 AM
Blahblahblah. If you don't worship the Bible, you wouldn't get outraged whenever someone, say, burned it, or ripped a page out, or something. As it is, that's damn near considered a hate crime these days.
6/8/2008 4:56:39 AM
YAWN, right it's your fables and legends "perfect" edition, oh joy!
Errare humanum est, you morons! Isn't pride a sin?
Then again you love violating your own codes and laws so I'm not impressed nor surprised at all.

Bible queer deluxe, eh?
6/8/2008 5:08:10 AM
Anyone else get visions of Jesus having shopping lists and doodles scribbled all over him in biro?
6/8/2008 5:15:33 AM
Yeah because we all know God made the KJV first, then had the Jews translate it into Hebrew and Greek.
If you don't worship the bible, why is it you consider any other version worth burning?
6/8/2008 6:10:28 AM
You failed when you pluralised 'believers' with an apostrophe.
6/8/2008 6:34:48 AM
Bibliolatry is still a sin, right?

He's saying Fundies don't care what the Bible really says, he's making everyone else's case for them. Does he even realize that?
6/8/2008 8:53:33 AM
And this guy is supposed to be a doctor. Anyway "Hard on for the KJV" seconded.

"He's saying Fundies don't care what the Bible really says, he's making everyone else's case for them. Does he even realize that?"
Well, this is the way it ALWAYS works with those dimwits. They try to convince you they are not arrogant, by telling you that resistance is futile. They tell you God is full of love because he torments babies eternally for missing out on one of their rituals (like baptism). They tell you that you are psychologically abnormal because you don't see demons at Wal-Mart. This is standard fare for a fundie.

How about you don't read any version of the Bible? Simple really.
6/8/2008 11:43:33 AM
Hmmm.... this makes me want to rip up a copy of the KJV in front of this holier-than-thou prick and watch the hilarity that ensues.

So why was Pat Robertson selling them page by page on the 700 club???
6/8/2008 12:48:08 PM
Yet if we show anywhere near the "reverence" to something else that you show the KJV, we get accused of idolatry?
6/8/2008 1:22:43 PM
Is that a chick idea or did you come up with it on your very own?
6/8/2008 1:39:44 PM
The KJV is probably the most heavily edited translation.
Far from perfect.
6/8/2008 1:53:38 PM
"their own shortfall of scholastic ability and the consistent blessing of the King James Bible by the Holy Spirit. "
This from people who claim the hebrew translation is inferior to the english original that was produced by a sodomite king James.
6/8/2008 3:10:29 PM
Another KJV whore. Turning tricks for Chick.
6/8/2008 3:14:44 PM
The reason why people say that you KJV-Only people worship the KJV is because you act like it's the most perfect thing ever committed to paper and all other translations are from Satan. How is that not worshipping a book?
Also, King James was gay, so if you're against gay people and for the King James Bible, you're a hypocrite.
