NC church plans to burn Bibles, Christian books

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has an intereesting article today. "NC church plans to burn Bibles, Christian books." The Associated Press CANTON, N.C. — A North Carolina pastor says his church plans to burn Bibles and books by Christian authors on Halloween to light a fire under true believers. Pastor Marc Grizzard told Asheville TV station WLOS that the King James version of the Bible is the only one his small western North Carolina church follows. He says all other versions, such as the Living Bible, are "satanic" and "perversions" of God's word. On Halloween night, Grizzard and the 14 members of the Amazing Grace Baptist Church also will burn music and books by Christian authors, such as Billy Graham and Rick Warren. Read more about it at:


I wonder which version of the King James Bible he is referring to. The Authorized translation included the Apocrypha.

But about 1800 the Bible Societies decided that the Apocrypha didn't agree with their beliefs, so they started to leave those books of the Bible out. Today, most Protestants don't even realize they are using a censored edition.

It was even more censored by Noah Webster, who took out references to dirty words, such as: 1 Kings 16:11 "And it came to pass, when he began to reign, as soon as he sat on his throne, that he slew all the house of Baasha: he left him not one that pisseth against a wall, neither of his kinsfolks, nor of his friends." That passage today can be read as: "As soon as he began to reign and was seated on the throne, he killed off Baasha's whole family. He did not spare a single male, whether relative or friend."

So, which of the King James Version of the bible does he use, and are all other versions not acceptable?

And which version doth he pisseth on?
