    Well, some angry person sent a copy of the TNIV to Zondervan with a bullet hole through it.

    Ya' suppose the person was KJVO?Nah,only an irrational person would do that.

    Seriously,if that's what someone does to express their view ---maybe they've lost the argument?

    I Thought I'd Head Someone Off At The Pass

    I can just hear the jokes forming in some minds here."At least the bullet made the TNIV a Holy Bible."

    But funny business aside,that's one demented individual who did that -- not just uninformed,but deformed.

    Only a coward wouldn't identify himself or herself as the one who pulled the trigger.

    Yep, the bullet put "holy" in an otherwise "unholy" Bible. Good one, Rip.

    It's similar to the guy who was tearing an NASB apart on a YouTube clip, out of his fanaticism.

    Was it just the NASB?I thought he tore up several translations -- but I didn't watch the entire disgusting display.

    Well, the first part was the NASB. I didn't watch all either.

    Anyone who would intentionally maliciously harm God's Word has long ago lost their conscience.

    Certainly most KJVO's would not stoop to that level.If so they are unregenerate for sure.No matter how much that kind of person claims that the KJV's alone are the Word of God --this sort of individual does not hold to the truths found therein.

    Sometimes I am glad I don't get U Tube or whatever it is called.

    Every book has some value. I remember the story about people burning a bunch of German books during the war. Until a man pulled out one book and pointed out that it was a Bible. The crowd went sour. I can't verify the story. It was in a USA newspaper.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Such a warped, sinning person should be banned from this board.

    I know people out there do it. A local KJVO college has some students who regularly do it.

    These people need to get saved.
