    This is a continuation of the thread where we looked at common English says that were found in the King James Bible. https://www.freerepublic.com/focus/religion/3638962/posts?q=1&;page=1 Now we will look at scientific facts from the Authorized version . . . Would to God that people that are not fans of the Bible for the English-speaking people be convinced that it is much more than a mere Bible version - but the Book that God has used for 400 years to the saving of countless souls for Christ.

    Of all the messages that I have listened to by Sam Gipp, I believe there is one that is downright fun! Without fail, because I use the KJB exclusively, it does not take long before the accusation is made that I am just another one of those KJB-Only cultists - the straw man used to delude the Message and denounce the messenger. This message by Dr. Gipp, 'Bible Quotes and Scientific Facts' is one that I have long wished to use just to show folks how ingrained the King James Bible is within our English culture and how they have...

    We are going to go through this book in a very slow fashion - no hurry. This subject is completely a matter of faith. Those that reject or do not possess a particular preference for the King James Bible are welcome to visit and participate - but this is not an argument thread. I am not responsible to convince anyone against his or her will. Either you have faith in a God that is able to preserve His Word or you do not - but you are not going to convince us to reject our faith that the King James...

    I was happy to see an ongoing Ping List belonging to Freeper WhatNot presented as a series called . . . Offsetting. These threads are discussions centering around God's Word as preserved in the King James Bible. The thought occurred to me that we might engage in a study/discussion of a book that is considered among Bible believers as the best studies on the King James Bible available. I'm new to the whole PING list thing but I think I can get it going if any might have an interest in this 'book club' approach. If this works - perhaps...

    University of Toronto ^ | 1980 | Northrop Frye
    Between 1980 and 1981 Prof. Northrop Frye held 25 lectures under the title ‘The Bible and Literature’. Each of these lectures was recorded and for each of them a transcript was provided. Later excerpts of these 25 lectures (each 50 minutes long) were made into 30 programs (each about 30 minutes). That means in some cases 1 lecture supplied material for 2 programs or the other way around.
  • How the King James Bible changed the world

    09/09/2014 7:52:23 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 126 replies
    In 1611, the new British state headed by King James I issued its translation of the complete Bible, "newly translated out of the original tongues, and with the former translations diligently compared and revised. By His Majesty's special command. Appointed to be read in churches." The book gave English-speaking Christians a common standard through which they could express their faith. Soon, the spread of printing technology meant that this translation above all became the definitive Bible that believers kept in their houses, and before too long, carried in their pockets. *snip* Even thinkers not sympathetic to the Bible's message still...

He called for a Bible, read a chapter out of Ecclesiasticus, and expounded it according to his own views ; then turning to the lords of his council, he said, " What trow ye makes these men so angry with Ecclesiasticus ?

    How A Charlie Brown Christmas almost didn’t happen Few headlines about network television make me giddy. Fewer still make me hopeful that all is good in the world. But back in August of 2010, I read the following headline from the media pages with great excitement: “Charlie Brown Is Here to Stay: ABC Picks Up ‘Peanuts’ Specials Through 2015.” The first of these to be made, the famous Christmas special, was an instant classic when it was created by Charles Schulz on a shoestring budget back in 1965, and thanks to some smart television executives, it will be around for...

    The Church in Wales says it is investigating after a Gwynedd rector burnt some pages from the Bible. The Reverend Geraint ap Iorwerth of St Peter ad Vincula Church, Pennal, also cut up pages from the King James Bible to create an artwork. Unveiling it at a church event, he said it revealed a "cruel and vile God". The Bishop of Bangor said: "Destroying parts of the Bible we don't like is disrespectful and will offend many people." Mr ap Iorwerth told BBC Wales he had burnt scraps of cut up the passages at the public event because he had...

    While [King Henry VIII] was still Catholic, William Tyndale sought permission to translate the Bible into English so that even “a boy who drives the plow” might know Scripture. Permission was denied, and Tyndale moved to Germany where he completed the first translation of the English New Testament made from Greek. It was published in 1526, and over the next ten years 50,000 copies were smuggled into England. Tyndale was betrayed, captured, and in 1536 killed for the crime of publishing the New Testament in English. Although his body was burned at the stake, Tyndale had unleashed an enormous demand...

    A little English village church has just made a remarkable discovery. The ornate old Bible that had been sitting in plain view on a table near the last row of pews for longer than anyone could remember is an original King James Bible - one of perhaps 200 surviving 400-year-old original editions of arguably the most important book ever printed in English. In fact, the Bible at St. Laurence Church in Hilmarton, England, was sitting right under a hand-lettered sign saying it was an original. The sign said it had been found in "the parish chest" in 1857, that the...

    Sitting as a boy through long, boring sermons, I was surprised to find these words at the front of my Bible: “To the most high and mighty Prince James, by the grace of God, king of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, defender of the faith. The translators of the Bible with Grace, Mercy, and Peace, through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Huh? For years I had no idea what these words were all about. They are, of course, the opening words to the preface of the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible. (We call it that; however, the Bible itself...

    1 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. 2 And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. 3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: 4 And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. 5 And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not...

    King James VI of Scotland was raised as a Presbyterian. Even though his mother, Mary Queen of Scots, had been a Catholic, he was baptized by a Calvinist figure no less prominent than John Knox, sent by John Calvin to Scotland. You would think that when James ascended to the English throne in 1603 that he would have been sympathetic to the English Puritans, for their beliefs also derived from Calvin and his teachings. Instead, within a year of becoming King James I of England, he initiated a project that would attack the Puritans. This project was a new Bible...

    For the past several weeks, my upstairs neighbor and friend has been having a very rough time. He is suffering from some mental illness, the after effects of drug use, gambling and financial problems - in short, he's quite a mess right now. Mr sassbox and I were sitting out on our porch earlier this evening, when this young man came out. He struck up a conversation with us - the first time in weeks he has spoken to anyone in our house in a friendly manner. Although he has not been religious at all, he talked alot about God...

    Welcome to the Society of Christians for the Restoration of Old Testament Morality. We are concerned American Christians who want to restore our great nation to its roots in the Old Testament's unchanging morality. We cannot remain God’s favorite nation for very long until we as a nation scrupulously observe the literal meaning of every word in the Bible (King James only, please). We believe that the entire Bible – Genesis to Revelation – sets forth God’s perfect plan for every aspect of our lives, and we don’t believe that God has changed His mind. Our nation was founded by...

    <p>Many commentators have noted that President Bush’s Second Inaugural Address presented “lofty” themes, rather than “plans for specific action in his second term.” Some saw this as a virtue, that too little attention is paid to the long span of America’s civic life. Others saw this as over-reaching, and some objected especially to the many religious references in Bush’s speech.</p>
