KJV ONLYISM - A CULT?
It appears that a number of individuals are claiming that the KJV is more accurate than the manuscripts it is based upon making the issue (KJV Onlyism) appear to be some absurd Anglo-centric issue. That extreme view is then pointed to in order to label KJV onlyism as cult-like. In the case above it certainly would be. That straw man is then attacked in order to divert attention away from the real truth that Satan produced corrupted copies of the bible many centuries ago and has had much success in reviving them under the guise of producing 'new and improved translations'.
There are accurate translations in many languages that are also in competition with the 'new corrupted bibles' so it is really not an issue that revolves around the English language per se. Some I'm sure do hold to extreme views probably believing that God appointed the English as guardians and 'saviors of the world' (Shades of British-Israelism!) and handed the KJV directly to them from heaven as a 'standard' to be displayed at the front of their 'ever so proud' and victorious army. Uh huh!
Some men in focusing on doctrinally irrelevant complaints about the KJV (some archaic words) entirely overlook the very serious and deliberate (doctrinal) corruption found in the newer translations. Satan has managed to create a blind spot among some otherwise very discerning Christians and quite often they are placed at the head of the pack attacking those exposing Satan's efforts to promote adulterated bibles. It appears that the guilty (Rome and the liberal bible publishers.) spend lots of money to protect their investments.
Take a look at how many heavy guns have been aimed at Gail Riplinger (author of 'New Age Bible Versions') who try desperately to discredit her research while ignoring for the most part the very serious corruption of the churches through
"Gnostic New Age translations".
HOLY BIBLES vs CULT BIBLES
THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND
GAIL RIPLINGER'S CRITICS
The entire Canadian Council of Evangelical Protestant Churches unanimously passed a resolution at their Sept. 1994 meeting stating:
"Whereas, the falsity of these polluted versions has been exposed in a 700 page book entitled, 'New Age Bible Versions' in which thousands of references are given completely exposing the falsity of the new perversions and fully supporting the King James Bible, 1611. We, therefore, resolve that The Canadian Council of Evangelical Protestant Churches will continue to stand for the King James 1611 Bible and oppose and expose all promotion of these erroneous perversions of God's Word and strongly recommend the purchase of the book,
New Age Bible Versions..."

I was walking along the streets of Vanity Fair the other day and had my attention drawn to a huge edifice which was in the course of construction. Apparently there was a strike on, as something had happened greatly to hinder the work. On enquiring what was the trouble, I was told that there was a dispute among the workmen. The men were holding a meeting, and as anyone was admitted, I went inside out of curiosity.
Some had returned to their work, others were divided in opinion as to what was best to be done. It seemed that some were in fear that the building might fall, saying that some of the workmen were tampering with the foundations; the others were laughing them to scorn, vehemently asserting that their friends were but resetting the foundations: which, they said, had never been truly laid.
On further enquiry I found out that the building was called the CHURCH, and that the workmen were divided into two camps which some called "Fundamentalists," and "Modernists." The great fear of the former was that the latter would remove the foundations, and on examining the damage already done I was persuaded that there was much reason for alarm.
I found several of the huge foundation-stones partly out of place. Indeed, one on which I had deciphered the words:
The Virgin Birth
was more or less broken, and almost entirely removed from its place: if moved a little more a great part of the building would be in jeopardy. Another had an inscription which was partly obliterated by the workmen's tools; it read:
..spir.tion of . oly Scrip..re
A third which appeared to me to be the chief corner-stone was being vigorously attacked with pick and crowbar; it bore the words:
The Deity of Christ
I drew the attention of some of those destructive workmen, many of whom appeared to be scholars, to a notice the builder had left nearby. It read:
|If the FOUNDATIONS be destroyed,|
what can the righteous do?
But they scoffed at me, and muttered something about "Progress" and "Modern Building Methods," and fell to with greater zeal than ever. I turned away sad in heart, feeling that this beautiful building was doomed.
But as I was about to step out into the street, a young man in shining garments touched me on the shoulder, and gave me a letter from the Builder of the edifice, bidding me read it. I broke the seal and read:
|NEVERTHELESS THE FOUNDATION|
OF GOD STANDETH SURE
I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH; AND THE GATES|
OF HELL SHALL NOT PREVAIL AGAINST IT.
Much comforted by these words, I passed on.
