Video Review: "King James Only?...The Final Word" Part 3

  • 3:00 - At this point Hebrews 4:12 rolls across the screen.  She uses this verse to somehow explain Matthew 25:32-33; the dividing of the sheep and the goats.  She uses this as a picture of Jesus dividing the church between the true followers (sheep) from the backslidden CEO (Christmas, Easter, One other time) Christians or goats.  In other words, Jesus is dividing the bible agnostics (sheep) from the KJV Onlyists (goats).  This is a devilish and subtil (pun intended) attack on bible believers which she fails to provide any proof for and she also twists the scriptures to make her point.  First of all, the sheep and the goats are the saved and the unsaved respectively.  Secondly, the events being spoken of in this passage in Matthew take place at the second coming: the Body of Christ has already been raptured and will return with him at his coming (Song of Sol 6:4,10; Jude 14-15; Rev 19:14).  However, if one want to try to spiritualize the passage, which she obviously does, you still have a problem; verses 41&46 say the goats are cast into hell.  It goes without saying who she is trying to paint as the goats.  So is she saying KJV Onlyists are going to get cast into hell?
  • 4:30 - The woman continues to babel (pun intended) about the division in the Body of Christ being created by Satan using the bible version issue, and I agree with her.  But she still doesn't explain how the people using a 400 year old English book are the ones responsible for that division.  It is also interesting that the 2nd half of 1 Tim 6:20 pops up on the screen as a proof of her point (she uses it from the revision of the failed ASV aka NASV, be we will quote it from the AV): "avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:"  Isn't textual criticism a science?  Oh, the irony!
  • 6:00 - Here she says we must prove all things by the scriptures.  Sounds good, right?  Especially for us Baptists since we were the original Sola Scriptura-ists.  But...she is really building a straw man.  She is attempting to prove that because the scriptures don't specifically state KJV Only then we don't have to be and shouldn't be KJV Only.  I think she realized the stupidity of this argument because she trys to defend it by saying that God is very specific about other things so if he wanted to be specific about this he would have.  If this wasn't so sad it might actually be funny. I'd love to be with her and see her witness to a Catholic by saying their church is in error because the word "pope" doesn't appear in the bible.  Of course, if the bible did specifically say "King James Only", would she seriously expect to find it in the NIV or NASV she reads from?  Nevertheless we should ask her a question: can she shows us where the bible says the NIV is a good translation; or the NASV, or the ESV, or any other version?
  • 7:58 - 2 Tim 2:14 is used here as a reference and a proof that we should not argue about words.  This is yet another private interpretation and twisting of scripture.  This passage is dealing with heresy in the church.  In v. 15 Paul instructs Timothy to study (a command missing in almost all the modern versions) and rightly divide the word of truth.  If this woman is saying the "words" of v.14 is the word of God, then why would Timothy need to study and rightly divide if we aren't to argue over words?  Clearly Paul is telling Timothy to study and rightly divide so that he will not produce heretical words, false interpretations from twisting the scriptures as do the words of Hymenaeus and Philetus who's words eat as a canker and have overthrown the faith of some (have any bible believers had their faith in the Bible by "scholars" and false teachers teaching their is no perfect scriptures?).  This passage is paralleled in Titus 3:9-11.  Again, more wresting with the scriptures and private interpretations.


Verse of the Day - Revelation 11:15

And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, the kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Video Review: "King James Only?...The Final Word" Part 2

  • 1:05 - We should mention here the use of the term "King James Version."  While it is common today for us to use the term, from our research, we find that this term was not widely used until the modern versions came upon the scene.  We have looked at books by old-time preachers and scholars including Billy Sunday, Dean Burgeon, etc. and it seems the King James is mostly referred to simply as the Bible or the Authorised Version.  Only on occasion have we found the term "King James" used.  While we have no problem with the use of the title today, it is important to understand why this may have popped up into the mainstream.  In Acts 11:26 we are first called Christians.  This term was labeled to these believers as a negative, because they were following some man named Christ.  One of the most common things of liberals in a debate they are losing is create a man for your position to follow.  By painting this as the King James Onlyism, that allows them to attack King James' Version because it is merely a man-made version.  As we also know these modern versions have big marketing budgets behind them from major publishers.  But think about it for a second; how hard would it be to sell your "bible" in the marketplace against something called the Authorized Version?  Immediately calling it the King James Version lowers its level down to the others and makes unsuspecting believers gullible to the lies.  This gives rise to more old recirculated lies about King James being a sodomite, an Anglican or a Freemason.  Anyway, just recognize the marketing and liberal bait-and-switch tactics.
  • 1:47 - Here the woman gives the assertion of that Bible believers believes the King James is the ONLY holy word of God.  She does not explain herself as to whether she means the only English Bible or the only Bible in the whole world.  Personally, I don't know any Bible believer that believes a French speaking person or Spanish speaking person should not have a Bible in their own language.  In fact, they had Bible's from the pure text before the King James.  She also fails to give any proof of her assertion which is common for most of her arguments in this video.
  • 2:08 - Here she says that people that subscribe to the KJV Only position generally condemn anybody that uses any other translation.  I assume she means English translations.  She also does not really define what she means by condemn: does she mean simply disagree and rebuke their use of modern perversions, or does she mean announce a popish-style anathema?  She goes on to say that pastors and teachers that instruct their people to be KJV Only are wrong because it causes division in the Body of Christ.  Another common argument and common debate tactic.  But their are two problems with this thinking: 1)The AV was around before the modern versions so if anyone caused a division who was it? 2)Given the responsibility of a bishop or pastor, if he believes that the AV is the best translation, for whatever reason, why would he tell his congregation to use something when the best can be had?  But that's what this video is for; to straighten out your pastor and usurp authority over the man (1 Tim 2:12).

Video Review: "King James Only?...The Final Word" Part 1

  • This video gets off on the wrong foot with some very ungodly music, although if you ask her, it is "Christian."  It's sad to hear Christians act like this music is in anyway godly or pleasing to the Lord.  Rosie O'Donnell even said that "Christian rock" was an oxymoron; if she knows that, shouldn't a person that claims to be saved?
  • 0:24 - The woman opens up by quoting 1 Cor. 13:1 from the Vatican approved, Non-Inspired Version.  This is interesting because this chapter, on occasion has been known as the love chapter.  Most modern versions change the word "charity" in this verse and throughout to "love."  This is not the most accurate word.  Charity is love in action; charity is giving freely not expecting anything in return; charity is giving freely to someone that CANNOT do anything for you in return.  Love is merely an attribute or affection.  An affection with no action is useless.  Need an example of love but not charity?  Read James 2:15-16.  Need an example of charity?  Read John 3:16.  What is also ironic of the woman, but seemingly typical since she says it in other videos, is that she claims that if you argue with her YOU are being a divisive Christian (we'll deal more with this in-depth later).  Yet, is this not what she is doing the entire video?  What she doesn't seem to understand are the contrasts necessary in true love: true love obligates you to hate certain things.  If you understand the importance of the word of God, if you believe every word of God is pure (Prov 30:5), if you believe you are supposed to live by every word of God (Deut 8:3), if you love the law of the lord (Psalm 119), then you are obligated to hate the corruption of the word of God (2 Cor 2:17) and you are obligated to hate the SIN of those men and women that have perverted the words of God (Jer 23:36).  This hatred should force us all to speak the truth in love and educate believers about the truth of the bible version issue.


Verse of the Day - 2 Kings 2:9

And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for for thee, before I be taken away from thee.  And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.

A Few Verses for the Wise

During this Sunday morning's sermon at the church I belong to, the assistant pastor preached and used the following text as part of his message.  But while he was preaching and came to this text I started thinking about the bible version issue.  Who was it that pawned these modern versions onto the Body of Christ causing much confusion (1 Cor 14:33)?  Was it the body itself clamoring for an easier to understand bible?  Was it the pastors and teachers suggesting an updated Av without those pesky thees and thous?  Or was it the farmer teaching his children to read by the old corn stove?  The answer is none of the above.  The answer is some "we know better than you" scholars; the answer; as James White likes to put it, the informed "Christians" wanted to help us "uninformed" bible believers.  Nevertheless, these verses hit their sin on the head:

1 Corinthians 3:18-20
18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written , He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. 20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.

King James User or King James Believer?

Some time ago we posed a question about whether people are King James Bible users or King James Bible believers.  What's the difference?  Read the following excerpts from statements of faith on the scriptures.  The first is from Mission Peak Baptist Church where the pastor prefers the King James and the latter from HAC Alumni.

"We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and that they compose the entire Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible, and God-breathed; and therefore, are the final authority for faith and life. The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments are the complete and divine revelation of God to man. The Scriptures shall be interpreted according to their normal grammatical-historical meaning. (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21)"

"We believe that, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God..." (2 Tim. 3:16) and that "every word of God is pure" (Prov. 30:5). We believe that the 66 books (Old Testament and New Testament) of our English scriptures, which is the King James Bible (1611), were given under the direct supervision and supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit and therefore constitute the perfect, preserved and inspired words of God without any admixture of error (Ps. 12:6,7; Ps. 19:7). We do not subscribe to the heresy that only the "original manuscripts" are inspired and preserved. This Holy Bible is our sole authority for truth for all Christian belief and practice." 


Video Review: "King James Only?...The Final Word" Introduction

I recently viewed a video made Tic Toc Ministries concerning King James Onlyism titled "King James Only ... The Final Word"; what an ironic title as this video is anything but the last word.  This video was really no different than your run-of-the-mill anti-KJV rant.  This video was about 30 minutes long so we didn't trry to tackle every single lie, distortion, misrepresentation, or deceit but we certainly commented on what we felt were some of, what we felt, the more glaring perversions from the woman teaching in this video.

What I noticed in this video, in general, is she never addresses what the video description, that is: Is the King James the only accurate translation of the Bible?  She never goes into a discussion of verses/passages that are accurate or inaccurate, there are no verse comparisons, and there is no evidence given for her assertions.  She also is very skilled at applying scripture out of context and telling you that if you argue with her about this issue YOU are being divisive.  I also wanted to get a good view of her style/tactics so I watched another video she did on Calvinism and she used the same tactics. By the way, I am not a Calvinist, but if you want a good laugh watch her video on Calvinism; she clearly has no idea what she is talking about.

Nevertheless, we will dive deep into the video beginning soon.  It is rather lengthly so we will do it in multiple parts.  We hope you will stay tuned.

Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?

One of the biggest excuses that is common within Christian circles today for use of the modern versions over the Authorized Bible is that they are easier to read and understand.  But what people fail to remember is that the KJB was used as the main textbook for Reading and English for years in this country.  In fact, in 1782 Congress passed a resolution endorsing and recommending the use of the Bible in all schools!  Which begs the question: were the old farmers of yesteryear smarter than seminary educated Christian’s today?  In addition to this common sense argument, there are the results of the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level Indicator which place the KJB at a 5.8 grade reading level, lowest of all versions.  What about the popular NIV? 8.4.  In addition, the Flesch-Kincaid scale scored 94% of the books in the KJB at a 7th grade level or below and the Flesch Reading Ease scale rated 97% of the KJB books Easy or Fairly Easy!  So next time someone asks you why you read that old King James, you can simply reply, “Because I’m smarter than a fifth-grader.”

2 Cor 2:11 - Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices

Come all you good people
Please listen to me
They have a new Bible
It’s call the NIV (or insert NASV, ESV, New KJV)

They call it a Bible,
I call it a book
Of evil, misleading
To all those who look

On its pages
So craftily twisted about
That all those who read it
Had better watch out

For some words are changed
And verses are missing
It seems I can hear
That Old Serpent hissing

Tis his work I know
For he long has been trying
To cause men to doubt
By simply denying

That God wrote the Bible
His message of love
That tells how to gain
A home up above

He could not destroy it
By staying outside,
So he cunningly entered,
And changed the inside.

About the King James Bible

"Many learned but misguided men have sought to produce translations that should be…in the plain speech of everyday. But the Authorized Version has never yielded to any of them for it is palpably and overwhelmingly better than they are, just as it is better than the Greek New Testament, or the Vulgate, or the Septuagint. Its English is extraordinarily simple, pure, eloquent, lovely. It is a mine of lordly and incomparable poetry, at once the most stirring and the most touching ever heard of."

Wow!  What glowing words for the Holy Bible.  You might think these words came from a tried and true KJV Onlyist, but you would be wrong.  You would be wrong to even think they came from a Christian at all.  These words are the words of H.L. Mencken, an agnostic reporter for the Baltimore Sun that was reporting on the Scopes trial.  Surprised?  You should be.  One has to wonder how an unsaved man like this can see this and "Christians" today cannot.

A Watch and A Bible

There is an old saying I heard years ago that says, "A man with a watch knows what time it is.  A man with two watches is never sure."

So what does this have to do with the Holy Bible?  Everything.  You see, apostates teach that there is no infallible, inspired, preserved copy of the word of God available on the planet today.  They teach you need to read multiple versions and somewhere in between you will find the meaning.  But to any clear thinking person on planet Earth with the brains of a gnat can see, the aforementioned statement is sheer stupidity when you take into account that one of the lies told by these same men are that all the versions really say the same thing.  If they all really say the same thing why do I need to read more than one version?  Why not just read one version over and over?  If you have a watch with the correct time (as the modern version apostates use the King James Bible as the standard for their classic "no doctrines are changed" lie) why do I need to wear a second one, or a third, etc.?

You see if you wear more than one watch, both with different times, there will come an instance when you need a definitive answer as to the time.  So what must you do?  You must go ask a person; making, by default, a man the final authority.  Isn't that the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, the thing our Lord hates?

The conclusion of the matter is this: get yourself a watch that is known to have the correct time and discern the times and seasons by it; not by the pawn shop dealers trying to sell you a knock-off that isn't even ticking.  Amen.

Ruckman Reference Bible 2nd Edition: A Review

I just received a 2nd Edition Ruckman Reference Bible.  First, lets deal with the cosmetics.  I personally have not handled a 1st Edition model, but I heard the covers were not that good.  If this is true, they have corrected it with the 2nd edition.  The new covers are either cowhide or calfskin; the one I purchased was was the 3-piece calfskin version.  Based upon previous bibles I have purchased, I believe they use Local Church Bible Publishers for the binding.  It has two ribbons and has a generous sized font.

Moving on to the contents, they are numerous to say the least.  There are 118 appendices to the text and, obviously footnotes and center column references in the text as well.  Most helpful in these appendices, in my opinion, are the ones dealing with defending the KJB and the modern corruptions.  I also appreciate a study Bible that does not try to tear down or correct the Bible in the footnotes as this one most certainly does not.  In fact, at most of those classic gnostic omissions (1 John 5:7, last 12 verses of Mark, etc.), there is commentary on the manuscript proof for those verse in the text.

It also has very helpful maps.  In addition to the basic ones included in every Bible, Ruckman includes: The Sykes-Picot Accord, 1892-1918 land proposals, the Balfour Declaration, and many of the wars the Jews fought after that, and the map with the 10 kingdoms as divided by the Club of Rome.

In conclusion, the RRB is worth buying for a Bible believer (if for no other reason than all the pro-KJB information).  As with any study or reference works we must remember that the notes are the OPINION of a man; they are not scripture, they are not THE truth.  Certainly, I don't agree with everything Dr. Ruckman says as with every other study Bible I've owned.  Nevertheless, if you are a bible believer in need of a good reference bible, you won't be disappointed with this one.

Thoughts on 9/11 and Revelation 9:11

"And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit,
whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue
hath his name Apollyon."
Rev. 9:11

There is no question we Americans all remember where we were and what we were doing when Satan's minions flew planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and some brave patriots thwarted another another plane.  Although the self-serving media claims we need to understand this people and dialouge with them to understand their feelings and why they did this, the truth is God through his word tells us why this happens.

Since the beginning God has given man a choice: the tree of life or the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; the LORD or Baal; Jesus or Barabbas; Christ or Antichrist.  And the Muslim peoples have made their choice as prophesied in Genesis 16 and that choice is not the Lord Jesus Christ.  By not choosing the Lord, they have chose Baal; they have chosen Barabbas; they have chosen Antichrist as their leader.

They have chosen themselves a king which has transformed himself into an angel of light (2 Cor 11:14), preaching another gospel (Gal 1:8), and promising things which he cannot bring to pass (Gen 3:4-5).  They have chosen themselves a king that is the angel of the bottomless pit (Isa 14:15, Rev 20:1-3), that is leading them into destruction because he has blinded their minds (2 Cor 4:4).

But, beloved, lest we think we are above reproach, we too were once just as blind as they.  Let's not forget, that but by the grace of God we could be in their shoes, still following and ignorantly worshiping the unknown god (Acts 17:23 - Allah is not a name, it simply means God).  Let us be ready to preach the word (2 Tim 4:2) to these lost souls, with all longsuffering and pray that the Holy Ghost will lead them into the truth and into His marvelous light as we have been called. Amen.

Gustavus Paine on the King James Bible, preface to The Learned Men.

"It is the most beautiful of all the translations of the Bible; indeed, it is probably the most beautiful piece of writing in all the literature of the world...An English Revised Version was published in 1885 and an American Revised Version in 1901, and since then many learned but misguided men have sought to produce translations that should be mathematically accurate, and in the plain speech of everyday. But the Authorized Version has never yielded to any of them, for it is palpably and overwhelmingly better than they are, just as it is better than the Greek New Testament, or the Vulgate, or the Septuagint. Its English is extraordinarily simple, pure, eloquent, lovely. It is a mine of lordly and incomparable poetry, at once the most stirring and the most touching ever heard of.”
