    That's pretty tough on the KJT committee. They made loads of changes to the Geneva Bible.

    I personally would not be so tough on them. They gave us an excellent translation even though they changed older Bibles.

    Wow, what a wonderful little bit of propaganda. Too bad folks read stuff like this, do no checking or thinking, and believe it.

    I'll try and be positive:

    At least the Gospel is presented in many of these "tracts." Thankfully, God is capable of using the Good News for His glory...even when it is buried underneath junk...

    Thanks for a great example of logical fallacies.

    Funny how the tract starts out saying, "Is it ok for a Christian to lie?"

    Then does exactly that!

    Seriously!! What seriously gets me is the fact that the KJV translators also added and subtracted words but the KJVO nuts forget about that.

    Not usually. Most KJVO nuts have never even considered it.
    Most of them (the ones that have not been around here) don't even consider anything before the 1769 which they think is the 1611.

    Don't you love all the KJV1611 banners that people have but they don't actually read a 1611??? :laugh: I always ask them if they have the Apocrypha in their Bible. If they don't, then they don't have the true KJV1611. :D

    Just more Chick garbage. Crap like that shouldn't even be allowed to be linked to.

    A link to an infomercial for another piece of Chick garbage... 12.95 to buy a piece of useless lies condemning God's word.

    Only ignorant people fall for this trash.

    hahahaha ;)

    Following rbell's lead in trying to be positive -

    OK, I've written several things and deleted them because I thought they sounded snarky, so my positive comment is that Chick tracts remind me that Christiandom is full of a variety of people.

    Ok, my positive comment- I'm positive that Jack Chick is RIGHT about Jesus Christ, but WRONG about Bible Versions.

    No joke and he has gone even lower in this one because he is ADVERTISING a book they are selling with that tract.

    Talk about getting people confused when talking about versions,
    his tract is more of a trouble-maker than most modern versions.

    I remember as a boy reading Chick tracts while my mother shopped at our Christian bookstore. Hey...it was comics. Some of it was rather graphic, and inappropriate for a child--but who would think about that? It was in a Christian bookstore.

    Scary to think how fouled up my theology could have been had I dwelled on some of that junk more than I did.

    Glad that didn't take. Last Christian bookstore I was in, I expressed my displeasure at the Chick tract display. When I went back a few weeks later, it was gone, and replaced by gospel tracts that do more good than harm (unlike Chick).

    Good for you, rbell, sometimes if we would all speak up some of the stores will listen. After all, we are their source of income. Good work! :thumbs:

    Can I ask you, was it a local Christian bookstore or a chain?

    I don't remember seeing any Chick books in Lifeway in Tulsa, which is the closest to me. I assume they can order them because the country church I went to had their tracts laying everywhere on tables in the Foyers. Then we found out the pastor had a lot of problems with the truth and I even begin to doubt his salvation, which obviously was not doing anything for me, so we changed churches. I had never met evil within a pastor like that, it was a shock to this 53 year old who had grown up under some VERY sincere Christian Preachers.

    The preacher claimed to be conservative so Chick was considered as the tract of choice. Once I questioned him privately, he didn't like me since. There was no discussion.
