How I Know The King James Bible is the Word of God
[...]
The Authorized Version Was Translated Under A God-Ordained English King

The main subject of the Bible is the kingdom which God intends to give to His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, Who will be crowned "KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS," according to Revelation 19:16. Ecclesiastes 8:4 says, "Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?" Unlike the modern versions, the KJV was translated under a king. In fact, the king's name was "James," which is the English word for "Jacob," whom God renamed "Israel," because he had power with God and with men (Gen. 32:28).

The new versions have been translated in America, which is not a monarchy. God's form of government is a theocratic monarchy, not a democracy. Therefore, it makes perfect sense that His word would be translated for the English speaking people under a monarchy with an English king. I know the King James Bible is the word of God because it was translated under a king.

And God dictated it in English as well.
Fucking moron.

Well, you may be in luck, because we are only about 2 or 3 pieces of batshit legislation away from becoming a dogmatic theocratic monarchy here in the good ol' USA.

Bushie has always maintained that the president needs to be unencumbered by the restraints of congress while persuing his crusade.

I wonder if Jimmy Melton knows that the KJV was created by the decree of a God-ordained, gay, English king?

Does he think that the previous versions also qualify, or does he think that the KJV is the ONLY true \"Word of God\"? The former would be a sign of fundiness, but the latter (echoing another recent poster) would be indicative of fundiness squared.

yet another hard-on for the KJV!

So ... this would mean that later editions of the Bible that were translated in England while a king was in power are every bit as much the Word of God as the KJV is. Right, Mr. Melton?

There is not one shred of fact, reason, logic, or intelligent thought process that went into this moronic brain fart. Goddamn, James, this is beyond stupid.

It has never once occured to you that in order to stay in power, the monarchy just claimed to be chosen by God, has it?

Ooooh - King of Kings. That's one of my favourite yum cha (dim sum) restaurants.

Wow

I wonder if God knew that King James was a little light in the loafers when He \"Ordained\" him?

If so, then why all that shit against homosexuals?

Round and round and round he goes, where he stops, nobody knows!

James I was one of my favourite monarchs. He's off the nutbar radar. Whatever his sexuality (possibly gay, but at this vantage point in history, who can say for certain?), he believed in demons and witches and all sorts of crap. The dude was off the deep end. Divine right of kings and whatnot. But then, with his genealogy, what do you expect? Mary Queen of Scots wasn't a pillar or reason, either.

\"the king's name was \"James,\" which is the English word for \"Jacob,\" whom God renamed \"Israel,\"

And Paul became Saul.....

Even within the bible there are renamings and new translations. How's anybody to know what to think when god can't make up his mind about anything.

\"the KJV was translated under a king. In fact, the king's name was \"James,\"

Well duh! How enlightening to explain that the King James Version was translated under a KING named JAMES. Did you figure that out all by yourself?

In retrospect, it's the only bit of sense you culled from your ass on this post.

Doesn't it bother all these gay-bashing fundies that King James was reportedly homosexual then?

7/28/2006 5:55:21 AM

I don't get all this KJV worship. It was done as the Authorised Version of the Chirch of England, and are all these fundies in the CofE? I don't think so.

Who knew the KJV could inspire so many hard-ons? Would that qualify it as pornography?

Dammit, the king james bible should have just stayed a failed translation. We really need to go back in time and steal the copy that brought it back into popularity x years after it failed the first time. The only reason everyone likes it is because of the funny words noone uses anymore. All the better to twist them.

Excuse me, but if the god of the bible were real, wouldn't he speak Hebrew or perhaps Aramaic?

This prat knows as little about a logical argument as he clearly does about English history.

ps.... James I - yes that King James - was gay. How come the fundies never mention that?

They became stirred up about this several years ago. There was talk about
getting a new infallible translation
to replace the old one, but nothing ever came of it.

I'm sure we'd be happy to welcome you 'misguided colonials' back into the imperial fold anytime :)

Someone should tell James that we are for the most part pretty damn secular back in Blighty these days.
