Modern-day legalism.

If you’ve ever wondered what it would’ve been like to witness the ridiculous rules and regulations imposed by the Pharisees, this four-and-a-half minute video may make you feel like you were there . . . and want to reach for an aspirin!

  1. If the King James Version was good enough for the Apostle Paul, it’s good enough for me.

  2. Did you notice how he kept saying that he knew people didn’t want to hear his message? He had to keep iterating that he was preaching from the Bible because he knew that he was spouting hogwash. Does anyone else think that this joker looks like Jack from “Lost”?

    On a more serious note, why is there such a KJV-only belief? I have seen this elsewhere and have never understood why this translation is better than any other. My best guess is that it is because there are so many people disgusted with today’s society and culture that they assume that anything that is 400 years old is automatically better. I sympathize, but if they truly believe that King James’ or King Henry’s world was pure then they sure need to bone up on their history!

  3. “The Lord destroyeth the man who pisseth on the wall.” Then he goes and tells everyone to be a man and pee standing up. I find this funny, yet very sad.

    I’m also in agreement with Bill. I like the KJV very much.

  4. I thought standing up for the gospel in a post modern insane world was being a man. I was WRONG! Excuse me, I’m going out back of my house and finding a wall.

  5. It is scary to try and imagine what these abominations will try to teach next.

  6. I have a question…not at all trying to be insensitive, just asking a question…what do you mean that
    “If the King James Version was good enough for the Apostle Paul, it’s good enough for me”. What does that mean? Was this just a joke? I am really interested in that statement…again, just inquiring minds want to know!!

  7. Chris,

    Please follow the link embedded in my response to Bill’s comment – I think you’ll find that it speaks to your question.

    In Christ,

  8. That’s funny, I was wonderring the same thing!

    So what translation do you all suppose is the most acurate?

    Is there any translation that you can honestly say you agree with 100%?

    Thanks!

  9. I meant I was wondering the same thing about Bill’s comment…

  10. I sent that to a friend of mine under the title “DISCERNMENT CALIBRATION.” Always good to have the unexample.

  11. I previously published a post entitled Which is Your Preferred Bible Translation? I also linked a 26-minute audio clip from the Albert Mohler show on that post in which this very topic is discussed. Perhaps this will be of benefit to you.

  12. I use the KJV anytime I witness to anyone over 200 years old.

  13. That was hilarious! I can’t believe he just did that! haha!

  14. I meant what I said as a joke. The Apostle Paul didn’t speak English. Some of the reasoning of the King James Only people seems to be as reasonable as the joke. I think the KJV is a fine version, but it’s not the one I use.

    Thanks,
    Bill

  15. Go ahead and lable me a heretic but I start off with the NIV and then move to the NASB or KJV for more lexical based translation during study. But I find (from working as an interpreter) you can NEVER get a 100% translation/interpretation. And unless you learn Greek and Hebrew then it is best to just use a few different “good” translations.

  16. We watched this in sermon group one day.

    Too funny.
