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.
