    Ugh! The KJVO contingent who burn bibles are acting cult-like.

    I refrain from calling the KJVO movement a cult anyway, plus it is against BB rules.

    However, there are cults that do have KJVO as one of their beliefs.

    identifying a cult is against the rules?

    Look on the bright side. Bro. Gizzard's church only has 14 members, including his family.

    This is the exact type of idiot that causes churches to delete the word Baptist from their church name. This person has no business pastoring a flock of geese. We have enough problems in our local churches without maniacs like this on the loose.

    :tonofbricks::BangHead: This guy makes me sick. What is his prolem with the Bible? It is God' love letter to the world. The Bible is God's instructions on how to live. If I had a BIble I was unable to use because the print was too small, I would give it to somebody who I knew could give the BIble to somebody who is in need of a BIble.

    there is a rule for the bible versions threads that you can't just call KJVO people cults and the KJVO people can't call new translations perversions etc.

    It is not a bad rule at all.

    Of course many KJVO churches are cults, being KJVO in and of itself does not make you a cult, just in error.

    It is truly sad considering this pastor believes he is taking the right stand and doing the right thing. There is nothing anyone can do to convince him or his flock that they are wrong. I believe the best thing is to ignore him and let him burn his books. At the number of books he burns is insignificant and are books they would not read anyway.

    It isn't the books he burns that I believe is the main problem. It is that this gives ammunition to those who view Christians as ignorant and gullible people.

    That is the main problem. I am glad he only has 14 people brainwashed in his church. However the greater damage is the masses that are turned off of Christianity because of idiots like these.

    I remember a group that gathered during World War II to burn books written in German. Among those books were several Bibles and sound theological texts.

    Ignorance and foolishness burns books of any sort, and this is no reflection on Baptist churches per se. It is a reflection on idiocy and I fear these come in all shapes and forms and church groups. I shall remain a Baptist despite what some groups may do. Jesus said, "If I be lifted up......" and that is what I will do because I am His and because I am a Baptist. I shall never know shame for being a Baptist.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    No, I don't think it's against the rules. It is against the rules to tell someone they are a cultist or in a cult, I think. That's different.

    I think the rule is that you can't call someone a heretic or unbeliever, or question their salvation. There are saved people in cults.

    I'm all for burning contemporary, W&H texts... :D



    But this just takes the cake, such ignorance.

    “I believe the King James version is God’s preserved, inspired, inerrant, infallible word of God… for English-speaking people."

    As usual, your post is totally out of context. The quote above is the truth, but you leave out the facts of the rest of the article. For example, someone could quote anyone (almost) on this board about being against abortion as an abmonination before God. If an article went on to say that the person quoted set a clinic on fire killing 20 people, and that is left out of the quote or post, then the whole picture is not a true representation of the facts.

    But then again, if the Holy Spirit leads you, join his church and make it fifteen.

    This thread is about the outrage of that act. There are plenty of threads on this board to debate which version is the best in your opinion.

    The fact that the guy is KJVO means he is a theological liberal.

    I hope you are joking here. Surely you would oppose to someone burning and English RV of 1881 or an ASV 1901?

    How about an ESV or an NASB, would those be ok to burn?

    Whackjobs. Plain and simple.

    Every town has two baptists churches. The "reasonable folks with brains church" and then you got "the whackjobs."

    Funny how Pastor Bibbedoveralls thinks that "burning Satan's books" will have some kind of effect like, oh I don't know, ridding the world of evil. Surely Reverend Bibbedoveralls knows that millions and millions of other copies of so-called modern corrupted Bibles and Billy Graham's books are still out there.

    So he's doing it for publicity. Yes folks, when you distill all the pious "we're ridding the world of Satan's books" nonsense, you are left with one eccentric fellow (or whackjob) who is out there feeding his ego and getting a bunch of free publicity.

    Just pray for the 14 people that attend his...uh...church if you will. Pray they wake up and get out before the Kool Aid is distributed.

    None of you seem to get it do you.

    The man simply sees the damage, these MV’s have done to the Church over the last 100 years or so, and is taking a stand against it.

    Now if indeed, he instigated this news story, than maybe he was looking for some publicity.
    Or maybe, he is simply sounding the warning.
    --------------------------------------------------
    I would not be saying this, except for his statement.........
    This statement alone proves that he isn’t some KJVO nut, because he sees the KJV as just a translation and not a newly inspired Bible.


    Give the man a break; He is just trying to warn people.

    Too bad you don't see the wonderful things that modern versions have done in the last 100 years. There is not one thing that I can think of that modern versions have done to the English speaking people that is bad. On the other hand, KJVO nuts like this give God such a bad name and he will have to be answering a pretty strict judge someday about his actions.
