“No Bible is not my final authority. GOD is?!
Recently at our Facebook King James Bible Debate club a typical bible agnostic posted “No Bible is my final authority. GOD is!”. A Bible agnostic is someone who does not know where to find a copy of a Bible in any language that is the inspired, complete and 100% historically true words of God. He cannot show you his infallible Bible simply because he does not believe such a thing exists. This particular bible agnostic was being shown many examples of the literally thousands of words that have been omitted from the text of many modern versions and the completely contradictory readings and meanings they all contain. He was getting a bit frustrated that he could not defend any of his modern versions as being the infallible words of God so he came out with this pious sounding, knee jerk exclamation “No Bible is my final authority; God is!”
It should be pointed out that we know absolutely NOTHING about who the true God is, what He is like, and what He has done for us in Christ outside of the Bible - Nothing! All we can know from natural revelation (creation) is that there must be a Creator. But what He is like; Who He is and what He does in history and how He has worked out His eternal purpose to redeem a people unto Himself and what lies ahead - we know nothing about all these things outside of His complete and inspired words.
If you think you have some kind of authoritative revelation apart from the Bible about Who this God of ours is, then you are off into the land of mysticism, imagination, vain speculation and subjective reasoning. You are creating a god in your own image and not the God who has revealed Himself to us in His holy and inspired written words.
God gave us His Book so we can have an objective (outside of ourselves) revelation of Who He is; what our lost condition is, and how He is making a new creation through the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Satan hates this Book and will do all he can to undermine faith in its truth - its absolute truth. Modern versions have done much to undermine faith in the inerrancy of Scripture. The polls show that less than 50% of present day Christians sitting in the pews believe in the infallibility of the Bible. Among the clergy, the percentage is in the 90's percentile.
See the quotes from many modern day Christians (who are not even King James Bible believers) here -
Modern versions pervert the truth of Scripture in many ways and degrade the Godhead. The Son of God becomes a liar in many modern versions in John 7:8-10. He gets angry "without a cause" and thus becomes a hypocrite in Matthew 5:22. There are now two Gods in some versions in John 1:18; Christ becomes a created being who has "origins" in Micah 5:2, and God Himself can be deceived (nasb) in Psalm 78:36. Jesus is no longer "worshipped" but men merely "bowed down" to him in the gospels. Literally thousands of words have been omitted from the N.T. in most modern Vatican Versions like the ESV, NIV, NASB and hundreds more added to the Hebrew text in versions like the modern Catholic versions and the ESV.
See more on how the modern versions degrade the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ here -
Scores of Hebrew readings have been changed in versions like the ESV, NIV, NASB, and NOBODY seriously believes that ANY of these versions are the infallible words of God. See the proof of this here -
All the attacks coming today are generally directed against ONE Book and that Book is the King James Bible. Nobody who is anti-KJB or who criticizes its texts and its translations believes in the Infallibility of the Bible - ANY Bible. Those are the facts.
The Bible itself tells us that there will be a falling away from the faith in the last days (2 Thes. 2) and that the %+%$% of Babylon will arise to deceive the whole world with the wine of her fornication. (Rev. 18) Anybody who is using a UBS (United Bible Society) based version is in fact using a Vatican Version and is being deceived.
See Undeniable Proof the ESV, NIV, NASB, NET, Holman etc. are tne “new” Vatican Versions here -
So when you hear people piously say something like "The Bible is not my final authority. GOD is." you should know that such a person is walking in the imagination of his own heart and is deceived. Fewer and fewer Christians actually read these modern perversions and they believe them less and less. God is sending a famine of hearing His words, just like He said He would. (Amos 8:11-12) But He always has a remnant of believing people who tremble at His words and esteem them above their necessary food.
Ask God to open your eyes and give you the faith to believe His words - ALL of His words. They are found in all their purity and power only in the King James Holy Bible.
