SATANIC VERSES ARE FOUND IN THE BIBLE IF NOT THE KING JAMES. Amazingly Some People Actually Think That King James English Is The Only Language The God Of The Universe Can Speak. Yet when we read the Bible we will learn that God separated the nations into seventy language groups.
People who claim to be King James Only actually commit the sin of bibliolatry, which occurs when people put the written words of the Bible before a personal relationship with the Lord Creator of the Universe.
Jesus clearly pointed this out when speaking to those who revered the written word above the Living Word. Below we have three versions. Notice the difference in the King James Version (KJV). The first two versions are clearer than the King James Version and clearly point to the fact that people commit the sin of bibliolatry, by trusting in the Scriptures—and refusing to come to Lord Jesus, so that they may be saved from death and have eternal life.
You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me; and you are unwilling to come to Me so that you may have life. (John 5:39–40 NASB)
You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life. (John 5:39–40 ESV)
Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. (John 5:39–40 KJV)
Many people mistake the words “search the Scriptures” as meaning this is what is required for salvation. In some congregations the act of searching the Scriptures for salvation is promoted dogmatically, as are some of their other doctrines to the exclusion of the necessity of having an actual relationship with the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ through the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
One Calvinist told me that what Jesus said (as quoted above from the ESV) means that we have to study Calvinism, in particular, the doctrines of Total Depravity, Unconditional Election Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace and Perseverance of the Saints (TULIP).
Another person went to the trouble of placing on his website a defense of the reasons why he uses the King James Bible after we had a discussion concerning the inability of the King James Bible per se to actually save people, and how I gave reading the Bible away because of the difficulty I had as a twelve year old reading it. Even when I read from Genesis to Job in the Living Bible, I was not saved because I did not know Lord Jesus Christ. When I met Lord Jesus, He gave me the assurance of eternal life: the joy of salvation.
But they say, ‘That is in vain! We will follow our own plans, and will every one act according to the stubbornness of his evil heart.” (Jeremiah 18:12)
Bibliolatry is an act that is satanic; for this is a form of idolatry, which is condemned by the Lord God. Stubbornness is also the same as idolatry and witchcraft is the same as rebellion before the Lord God.
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord. (1 Samuel 15:23)
Whatever points people to Lord Jesus Christ is not satanic. Anything that becomes a stumbling block is satanic. Once a person knows Lord Jesus Christ, any Bible will suffice as long as it contains truth, although the more literal the translation from the Greek or the Hebrew, the better. The King James is considered a literal translation. But putting it before a personal relationship with Lord Jesus Christ is bibliolatry.
