We KNOW (or at least pray so) that no one is holding up a Bible and bowing/worshiping it. It is hyperbole. But we have a friend (former pastor) who is KJVonly who holds up his KJV1769 and claims HE has the Word of God and that I do not (I carry a NKJV) have the Word of God. He claims the NIV is the "not-inspired version" and the NASB as the "devil's perversion", a "satanic" bible. He changed/compiled a new Greek text to match the KJV. This is the worst stereotype of KJVonly to me (and I promise I am not exaggerating his views; I'm probably understating it). Overshadowing faith in Christ is a blind faith in a VERSION of the Bible that becomes very real "bibliolatry". Hence my use of the hyperbole that seems, sadly, not so far from reality. I know that many are unhappy with the use of this hyperbole. We outlaw words like "heresy" or "cult" or "king jimmy" et al. Should this term also be thrown into the scrap heap? Light, not heat.
