A Bible Burns on Halloween

So this week I came across another sad testament to insanity:

Bible Burning

Apparently a church in North Carolina has decided to celebrate Halloween by burning their Bibles. Now that alone is bad enough, but they also decided to burn Christian books which quote the Bible, followed up by a BBQ!

Confused? Apparently they are too. The only Bible safe from their insanity is the King James Version Bible and the books that quote this translation.

I am sure Satan and his demons will be squealing with delight as Christians light God's Word on fire.

I have never understood the KJV only movement. I love the beauty of the old English, but this goes too far. I have been in Christian bookstores where people said they wanted a 'real Bible', 'the only authorized version', etc... I guess the original scrolls, the Greek and Hebrew translations, etc... were 'un-authorized'. Apparently King James had more authority than God!

2 Tim. 3:16 says all Scripture is God-Breathed. It did not specify a translation. When Christians are burning God's Word they have clearly taken their eyes off of God!

Psalm 119:105 says, "Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light for my path."

Embrace the Word of God. Choose a translation you can understand and keep your eyes on the King of Kings not King James!

I had some one park in front of our store once, his licence plate said “I preach King James” The first though came to me He would do better Preaching Jesus, King James didn’t save anyone. PS It could be the same guy they only have 14 members.

ROFL. Now that's funny. Seriously I think this is where people get off though.

The KJV is a good translation. However it is just that...a translation....where are the Original Hebrew Only Preachers?

I heard he changed his mind? I really hope God helped him change.

Well, it's like I always say, "If the old King Jimmy was good enough for the apostle Paul, it's good enough for me!" =)

Seriously, though, that church looks and acts like Antichrist in its quest to burn Bibles, Bibles that will never make it into peoples' hands or hearts. There is a famine for hearing the Word of God on our continent which makes this church's zealous idolatry of a particular version that much more intolerable.
