The King James Version of the Bible is the greatest book in the history of the world. For nearly 300 years the KJV was the Bible of choice for Christians who preached the salvation of Jesus Christ to the world.

With the publication of the Authorized or King James Version of the Bible, the Roman Catholic Church lost control of the English speaking world. Having failed in their attempts to destroy the KJV, the Jesuit Order of Roman Catholic Church changed their tactics to undermine the King James Bible with corrupted, counterfeit modern versions of the Bible.

The documentary below proves Roman Catholic infiltration, and points out why the destruction of the King James Bible is necessary to implement a global religious system and government.

“Now that the King James Bible has been removed from the hands of the majority of professing Christians, Satan’s false prophets are able to deceive them into thinking that the Roman Catholic Church is no longer the enemy of Bible-believing Christianity.” 

The leaders of the Emergent Church movement are calling for the end of the Protestant Reformation: 

“For five hundred years the basis of authority has been Sola Scripture. It’s not anymore. We’ve lost our authority. You and I now live in a globalized society. Who’s got the authority?

One of the things that’s happening in this great emergence is that the division between Roman Catholic believers and non-Roman Catholic believers is dwindling away as they enter into the emergence.

The authority for the Reformation was … Scripture only and only Scripture. That authority won’t work now. The absolutism with which Protestants established it as the authority has now shattered and gone. You’d save a lot more souls if you could get rid of doctrine; that’s the truth.

Your kingdom is in your hands and your shaping. Go forth and bring forth a new form of Christianity that will serve a new culture.” Phyllis Tickle, author, lecturer, Emergent Church leader

In 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12, Paul writes that Antichrist’s false prophets “received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 

The Roman Catholic Church wants to rid the world of the King James Bible because it is and always has been the greatest threat to papal authority and the establishment of a global religious system and government. 

Peace.

I read the King James Bible (KJV) because it is vastly superior to every modern English translation of the Bible. Without question, the KJV is the best version available in the English language today.

The Lord Jesus said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:35 KJV). The Apostle Paul exhorted Timothy to study the Scripture because the Scripture is inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16 KJV). God is faithful to His word; He would not inspire words that He would not preserve.

The Authorized or King James Version of the Bible is both a faithfully preserved text and a faithfully written translation. It is what God would have said had His words been written down in early modern English rather than Greek and Hebrew. Today’s modern English Bible versions such as the New International Version (NIV) are riddled with errors, omissions, and contradictions.

For example, the KJV says “faith” is one of the fruits of the spirit in Galatians 5:22; the NIV replaces faith with “faithfulness” as one of the fruits.

Ephesians 5:9 is another example. The KJV says “For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth”; the NIV omits the word Spirit and says “for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth.”

Contradictory Bible versions breed confusion among Christians. Since God is not the author of confusion, the confusion created by modern English Bible versions such as the NIV cannot be of God.

The KJV agrees with the majority of Bible manuscripts, which number over 5,000. Modern versions, including the NIV, are based on only a few manuscripts, which were rejected by the early church for being corrupt.

Initially 54 scholars and a few overseers (who went from group to group) were appointed in 1604 to translate the Authorized version. Seven translators died before the project was completed, leaving 47 to finish the job.

The translators worked at three locations: Oxford, Cambridge, and Westminster. They were divided into six groups, two groups per location. The Bible was also divided into six sections. Each group took one section, working on one book at a time.

Each translator would make his own translation of the book, which was reviewed by each member of the group. The group then collectively reviewed the book. When they all agreed on the translation, they sent it on to the other five groups for evaluation. Those groups would mark anything they disagreed with before sending it back to the original group, which would read over the book again.

When all the groups finished with the book, it was sent to a select committee made up of one leader from each of the six groups to address any unresolved disagreements. The committee resolved all remaining issues before sending the book to the printers.

Unlike the “Revisers” of the late 19th Century (1871 – 1881), the KJV translators did not work in secret. The translators could ask an outside scholar for advice and input at any time. The churches remained in the loop throughout the process, and anyone could find out the status of the project.

Every Bible verse was carefully examined by as many as 50 or more people and decided upon a total of 14 times, which prevented the translator from imposing his personal viewpoint on a verse or passage. His translation had to be logically sound and reasonable or the appointed scholars would not write it into the text. These careful examinations prevented the translators from imposing their private interpretations on the verse.

The KJV translators wanted to put into English exactly what God said. Their primary concern was to find the exact English words to match the Greek and Hebrew. They used a “formal equivalence” technique, which prevented them from injecting their theological worldviews into the wording.

The translators of the modern Bible versions including the NIV use a “dynamic equivalence” translation technique. Instead of finding the exact English wording to match the original language, they try to interpret what the verse or passage means, and then they select the English words to convey that meaning.

The dynamic equivalence technique makes it easy for translators to impose their theological worldviews on the meaning of the verse. 

The upshot is the KJV faithfully presents what God said, and the modern versions present a translator’s interpretation of what God meant. Christians trying to decide which version to use must choose between what some translator thinks the Lord said and what the Lord actually said.

God does not make a promise that He doesn’t keep, and only the KJV upholds God’s promise to faithfully preserve His words.

Peace.

Last month Ben Shapiro, editor-in-chief of the Daily Wire, syndicated columnist, and host of “The Ben Shapiro Show,” was interviewed by Joe Rogan. 

Shapiro is a trusted and respected voice in many conservative and Christian circles. He has become a prominent pro-life, pro-Israel voice in many Christian communities. Christians and preachers worldwide embrace him as a bright, articulate, and thoughtful political pundit.

Most Christians know that Shapiro is an Orthodox Jew; however, they would be quite shocked to know what he unabashedly believes about Jesus Christ.

(The exchange lasts about :40 seconds and runs from the 1:33:00-1:33:40 mark)

Transcribed below is a brief exchange from Rogan’s interview with Shapiro:

Shapiro: “From a Jewish point of view we don’t believe in the divinity of Christ. There you can make an argument that the gospels which were written…”

Rogan: “He was just a prophet .. right?”

Shapiro: “No, no, no, we don’t even believe that he was a prophet.”

Rogan: “What do you think he was? What do you guys think he was?”

Shapiro: “I don… I mean… I… What do I think he was, historically? I think he was a Jew who tried to lead a revolt against the Romans and got killed for his trouble. Just like a lot of other Jews at that time who were crucified for trying to lead a revolt against Rome and got killed for their trouble.

Rogan: “So he became legend in story and became a bigger and bigger deal as time went on…”

Shapiro: “Yea, and he got a group of followers and then that gradually grew and then there was a…”

Rogan: “Do you think he was resurrected?

Shapiro: “No. No, that’s not a Jewish belief.”

Even though Shapiro dismisses Jesus as nothing more than a zealous idealist who died for fomenting revolution against Rome, some professed Christians don’t think his views are insulting.

“As a modern Orthodox Jew, Ben is a practitioner of Judaism, and so, he does not believe that Jesus is the Messiah of Israel, let alone God. But he doesn’t go around mocking Jesus and he doesn’t insult Christians who worship Him as Lord.” Dr. Michael Brown, author and host of Line of Fire radio program.

But other Christians were not so willing to look the other way. They condemned Shapiro’s comments about the Lord Jesus Christ as demeaning and blasphemous

“Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ?” 1 John 2:22 KJV

Until Vatican II, popes throughout history have condemned Bible-believing followers of Jesus Christ as heretics for believing and teaching that salvation is through Christ alone.

Pope Innocent III  said, “Anyone who attempts to construe a personal view of God which conflicts with (Catholic) church dogma must be burned without pity.” (Source: Papal Bull, 1198 A.D.)

The foundation for the Christian faith is in God’s written word, the Bible, and not the Roman Catholic Church, whose teachings are antithetical to Scripture.

The Catholic Church teaches the Pope’s word is truth. “The Supreme Pontiff, in virtue of his office, possesses infallible teaching authority…” (Canon 749*).

In marked contrast, Scripture teaches every word of God is true. “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” (John 17:17).

The Catholic Church teaches that sacred images are acceptable and encourages “veneration,” or the act of bowing down before them. “The practice of displaying sacred images in the churches for the veneration of the faithful is to remain in force…” (Canon 1188).

Scripture teaches against making sacred images and bowing down before them. “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God” (Exodus 20:4-5).

The Catholic Church teaches the sacrifice of the cross must be continually offered. “Remembering that the work of redemption is continually accomplished in the mystery of the Eucharistic Sacrifice, priests are to celebrate frequently…” (Canon 904).

Scripture teaches that Jesus was offered one time as the perfect and complete sacrifice for sins, and He now sits at the right hand of the Father in glory. “When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.” (John 19:30). “And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man [Jesus Christ], after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God” (Hebrews 10:11-12).

The Catholic Church teaches priests are necessary mediators between men and God. “They [the priests] are in fact sharers of the priesthood of Christ Himself…to celebrate divine worship and sanctify the people” (Canon 835).

Scripture teaches that all believers are part of the royal priesthood having direct access to God. “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light” (1 Peter 2:9). “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all” (1 Timothy 2:5-6).

The Catholic Church teaches salvation begins at baptism. “Baptism, the gate to the sacraments, is necessary for salvation in fact or at least in intention, by which men and women are freed from their sins, are reborn as children of God, and configured to Christ…” (Canon 849).

Scripture teaches that salvation is by grace through faith in Christ alone. Nothing can be added to what Christ has already done that will merit God’s favor. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9). “This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.” (John 6:29). “And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then it is no more grace” (Romans 11:6).

Jesus told the Pharisees that they worship God in vain and transgress His commandments because they keep for doctrines the commandments of men (Matthew 15:3,9). Peter and Paul also warned that “false teachers” would become leaders in the churches and bring in “damnable heresies” and “doctrines of devils”. (2Peter 2:1-3, and 1Timothy 3:2-5). 

As an evangelical Bible-believing Christian, I disagree with virtually every doctrine and practice of Roman Catholicism.

Some unregenerate Christians insist on the importance of having a personal relationship with Christ. They seem to forget that Judas had a personal relationship with Christ.

The example of Judas teaches that one may be a disciple of Christ, a worker of miracles, a doer of good deeds, and an evangelist, but still be an unbeliever and go to Hell.

Until he betrayed Christ, to all the disciples, Judas led the sort of life that the faith-plus-works (Lordship salvation) teachers say distinguishes a true believer from a false believer.

“Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.” Romans 4:4-8 KJV

Peace.

The following question was posted above the photo below on Gab’s Christian group’s timeline: As a Christian, what do you think of Alan Turing, widely regarded as the “Father of Theoretical Computer Science and AI” who was a British mathematician who was in the team which broke the Enigma cipher of the Nazis during WWII; but who was punished by the law for being a homosexual, after which he died allegedly by suicide?

 

 

The question isn’t really about Turing as much as it’s about his being punished for being a homosexual and his subsequent suicide.

The enablers and advocates of homosexuality are tugging at heart-strings for Christians to decry the hateful, unjust law that punished such a gifted man and war hero for simply being homosexual. “Oh, the Humanity!”

And this is how I answered the question:

God destroyed Sodom with fire and brimstone from heaven chiefly because of homosexuality (Gen. 19:4-5, 24; II Peter 2:6-8; Jude 7).

Christ mentioned Sodom and not the other cities, not only because it went beyond them all in brutality and cruelty, but also because God destroyed Sodom in an extraordinary manner so that it would serve as an example to all ages, and its very name would be associated with gross immorality, utter depravity, and deep-seated wickedness.

Homosexuality isn’t a sin like lying, cheating, or murder. Homosexuals act on sexual urges that are foreign to the human condition. Heterosexual urges are perverted by the sin nature, but these urges are natural and stem from a desire to reproduce. Conversely, a sexual urge for an animal or someone of the same sex does not come from the sin nature. It’s an unnatural urge from a wicked spirit to gratify an unnatural sexual desire.

Homosexuality is an unnatural sinful sex act, whereas heterosexuality is not an unnatural sex act, and it isn’t considered sinful when it’s in the confines of marriage. Conversely, a homosexual sex act is always unnatural and sinful even when it’s committed in a “monogamous” same-sex relationship or in the confines of a same-sex “marriage.”

People are born with a sin nature, but they aren’t born possessed or oppressed by wicked spirits. Spiritual possession or oppression happens after people are born, not before.

Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Jeremiah all noted how open and brazen the Sodomites were with their sin. They did not hide their sin and were unbending and determined to proceed in their sin, which is why God issued His severest condemnation and judgment every time the sin of the Sodomites is mentioned in Scripture.

Peace.

The Holy Spirit reveals the truth to God’s elect, even though they may be unaware that He has revealed a particular truth to them. The truth just “dawns” on them.

Peter was not aware that it was God the Father who had revealed to him the truths that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Peter had to be told by the Lord Jesus that “flesh and blood did not reveal” these truths to him.

God gives elect believers the revealed truths they know through the Holy Spirit. Revealed truth is not separate from or different from God’s written word.

John writes, “These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.” (1 John 2:26-27 KJV)

God did not reveal to Peter all truth at once. In the first moment of faith, God reveals salvation truths to His elect, but there are additional truths God will reveal when it’s time. His elect will learn even deeper and more profound Scriptural truths throughout their lives.

Although false teachings have attracted the attention of many professing Christians today, the Holy Spirit is faithful and will reveal the truth of God’s written word to His elect.

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.” (John 10:27-29 KJV)
