Posted on 12/14/2012 6:34:13 AM PST by Kaslin
The King James version of the Bible has been hijacked by gay activists who want to rewrite history. Anonymous editors have published a Bible "friendly to gays," and have edited eight major verses to fit their narrative. The "Queen James Bible" is available on Amazon and is described as, "A Gay Bible. The Queen James Bible is based on The King James Bible, edited to prevent homophobic misinterpretation." The description and reasoning for the changes is below.
Why We Chose the King James Version
We chose the 1769 form of the King James Bible for our revision for the following reasons:
1. The obvious gay link to King James, known amongst friends and courtiers as “Queen James” because of his many gay lovers.
2. No Bible is perfect, but everyone knows the King James Bible; It is arguably the most popular Bible in history and the basis of many other translations.
3. Most English Bible translations that actively condemn homosexuality have based themselves on the King James Version and have erroneously adapted its words to support their own agenda. We wanted to return to the clean source and start there.
4. Some claim the language of the KJV is antiquated, but we believe it is poetic, traditional, and ceremonial. Christianity is an ancient tradition, and the King James and resultant Queen James versions remind us and keep us connected to that tradition.
What We Changed
The Bible says nothing about homosexuality. However, there might be no other argument in contemporary faith as heated as what the Bible is interpreted to say about homosexuality.
The Bible is the word of God translated by man. This (saying nothing countless translations and the evolution of language itself) means the Bible can be interpreted in different ways, leading to what we call “interpretive ambiguity.” In editing The Queen James Bible we were faced with the decision to modify existing interpretively ambiguous language, or simply to delete it.
There are problems with removal of verses:
• It doesn’t address the problem of interpretive ambiguity, it only brushes it under the rug.
• It renders an incomplete Bible.
• Revelation says not to “edit the book,” and people often extend that to mean the entire Bible, not just the book of Revelation.
We also refused to just say “that’s outdated” and omit something. Yes, things like Leviticus are horribly outdated, but that doesn’t stop people from citing them. We wanted our Bible bulletproof from the ones shooting the bullets.
There are also problems with editing verses:
• The context, idiom, and grammar from the time are almost impossible to recreate. • Changes could further create interpretive ambiguity.
Many versions of the Bible translated and published since the King James Bible have changed the language, so the precedent had been set for editing. Furthermore, both problems with editing are easily addressed by deciding to make the edits as simple as possible.
We edited the Bible to prevent homophobic interpretations.
Although these editors are correct when they say the Bible is for interpretation, it is important to understand that interpretation isn't the same thing as rewriting history or changing scripture.
God “will not be mocked.”
When can we expect the gay-friendly Koran?
These people will rot in there destiny.
My wife’s response: “Is that a joke?”
The Bible is already friendly towards all manner of sinners. It is an offer of amnesty to those who will accept it.
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
Yeah... this is... this is... I’m really at a loss for words here. This is blasphemy. Plain as day.
Yeah, but that whole admitting that you’re wrong part is what a lot of people can’t get over.
After all, since they themselves are gods, knowing and defining good and evil in their own terms, how can they be wrong?
By the way, this sorta thing has been done already (albeit, inadvertently). See the Wicked Bible.
The Satanic Bible is the actual homosexual bible...it’s a anti-Christin and it worships histories biggest Colon Cowboy—Satan.
8 major verses??? That’s all??? ROFL!
They have a LOT more work to do...
Starting with the entire story about Sodom & Gomorrah.
I was just about the post this scripture. The are playing with fire and shall be dealt with.
They can mock God all they want. When they breathe their last, if they are still unrepentant homosexuals, they will face torment in Hell.
I suppose a Satan friendly Bible is in the works.
Weird. The King James Version is not the true version either. The only true version is the Catholic Bible from what I was taught.....ok FRiends, I am just joshin.
You’re quite right. The Lord does not take kindly to those who pervert His Word. Woe to them, if they do not turn to Him for forgiveness and salvation.
As we ALL know, the Bible is very clear on homosexuality as well as abortion.
And the folks that love to say many of the Scriptures are only found in the Old Testament....
They forget that Jesus did NOT just appear in the New Testament, He was in the Beginning and is in fact GOD, so really they need to realize that Jesus is The Word in Old and New.
When the Old Testament says that Homosexuality is a abomination, that is Jesus saying it
No, he will not
