QUESTION: Don't King James Bible believer's
"worship" the Bible? Didn't God destroy the originals because He didn't
want these people to venerate them?
ANSWER: No and no.
EXPLANATION: Many critics of the perfect Bible
have become very frustrated in recent years. This is due to the fact that
their entire argument against the Bible has been systematically destroyed
by historical fact, their own shortfall of scholastic ability and the
consistent blessing of the King James Bible by the Holy Spirit.
In a desperate attempt to "sling mud" at Bible believers, they make
the two statements found above.
Do King James Bible believers worship the Bible? No. They do not pray
to it as they do to Jesus Christ. They do not preach that "the Bible
saves" but that Jesus saves. They blissfully mark notes
all over their Bibles, though none would dare to do so to Jesus Christ.
There is not even enough evidence to mistakenly
believe that King James Bible believers worship the Bible. Therefore, the
charge is unfortunately born of malice not sincerity.
Did God destroy the originals to keep King James Bible believers from
someday worshipping them? No. Nothing could be farther from fact.
God allowed the originals to pass off the scene because their only
value, was their words, which He preserved through copies. Once the
originals had served their purpose and were copied, they received no
loyalty from God or His people.
If the originals were somehow to "miraculously" appear today, they
would be of little interest to Bible believers since they make little of
If anyone would venerate them, it would probably be the crowd that
makes so much of them today, the Bible critics.
