Bible Burnings? That’s it. I’m out of here.

Greenville Church Burns the Bible:

That’s in Michigan in case you were wondering. Thanks to FARK for this one. It’s people like this that sometimes make me ashamed to be a Christian. Burning Mormon bibles and Catholic rosaries is not winning you any points with God. Let me quote the article…

Church leaders say any Bible besides the King James version that they use, are distractions.

The King James version huh? Exactly when did Christ rise again and say “Oh yeah, this here King James Bible, yeah that’s one. All the other ones suck”? The King James Bible is not the definitive Bible. I found an interesting web page that brings up some interesting points…

The King James Bible has undergone three revisions since its inception in 1611, incorporating more than 100,000 changes. Which King James Bible is inspired, therefore?

Those who advocate that the KJV has exclusive rights to being called the Holy Bible are always, curiously, English-speaking people (normally isolated Americans). Yet, Martin Luther’s fine translation of the Bible into German predated the KJV by almost 100 years.

That was just one of the many fine points made by the author. Well get used to the fire boys. You’ll be spending a lot of time in it when your time comes.
