I'm Now KJV Only!!

Recommended Posts

I know I have had a few snarky comment about the KJV only Bible. I've snarked about God not speaking in Shakespearean English, and that like all other versions it is just a translation, ect. ect. However I am not to proud to admit I was wrong. All it took for me to see the light was to hear this inspirational number, The King James Bible. It is sung to perfection by two defrauding Godly men. I encourage you all to listen to this masterpiece and see the error of your ways:

Does anyone else find it ironic that it is mainly American Protestants who have come to cling to this translation so much? (I'm not saying all Protestants. Just that the demoniations who are KJV only are Protestant). I'm just saying it kind of makes me giggle.

Actually, I think that most denominations who cling to the KJV only are Baptists and the type of Baptists who would just as enthusiastically protest being called Protestant as they would declare that the KJV is the only "right" Bible.

Why do some Baptists protest being called Protestant?

It's just hilarious that they chose a Bible commissioned by an English King to further unify the English church. He was a King who took issue with Puritans and was trying to combat them. You would think they would prefer the Geneva Bible or some other translation favoured by Puritans. We all know how much Doug likes Knox.

Some Baptists feel that the denomination goes back to the Early Church as in Peter, Paul, and other NT writers so and were never associated with Catholicism. That means they never "protested" which to them means they aren't Protestants.

What a charming song!

I find it interesting that anyone would believe that the KJV is the "only" Bible. What, pray tell, were all those silly Christians reading prior to that translation?

(I also find it telling when people prefer purple prose to accuracy in translation.)

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!

      Had ankle surgery on the 22nd and am non-weight-bearing until the 7th, and it would great if I could REMEMBER that I'm not weight-bearing until I try to step on my splinted ankle.
