QUESTION: Is it "heresy" to
believe, that the King James Bible is perfect?
EXPLANATION: It is amusing yet appalling
that a King James Bible believer, who BELIEVES the
Bible to be inerrant, is called a "heretic" by people who
claim to believe that the Bible is inerrant.
"Heresy", according to Webster, is "an
opinion or doctrine contrary to the truth or to generally accepted beliefs."
It is "generally accepted" that the Bible is
the perfect word of God. I have often told people, "I don't believe
that the King James Bible is the inerrant word of God. I believe that
the BIBLE is the inerrant word of God. But if you ask
me to give you a copy of that Bible, I'll hand you
a King James Bible."
Critics of the King James Bible believe
that the "Bible" is the inerrant word of God. BUT, ask them
to hand you a copy of that inerrant Bible that they
"believe" in, and you will find that it doesn't exist
anywhere on this earth!
We King James Bible believers simply believe what they
CLAIM to believe. And for that we are called "heretics."
Actually the "heretic" label is designed more
to scare young adherents away from the inerrant Bible, than to honestly
define the name callers feelings. It is hoped by the Bible critic that
the fear of being labeled a "heretic" will discourage zealous
Christians from REALLY believing what Bible critics
claim to believe.
In fact, if it is generally accepted by fundamentalists
that "the Bible is the inerrant word of God" and the Bible
critic can find a mistake in every Bible that you put
in his hand, then... who really is the heretic?
