Yes, you read that right….there is actually a revised KJV Bible out there called “The Queen James Bible – The Gay Bible” If I’m lyin, I’m dyin.
When I saw this, I was appalled, disgusted, completely offended, and outraged at the continual lies that are being spun out there in the “name of God” to suit one’s own desires; “itching ears” as the Bible calls it.
It already wasn’t bad enough they took the rainbow – God’s covenant with mankind to never flood the earth again – as their “symbol”?
Here’s a claim on this site about this bible and my rebuttal:
Homosexuality was first mentioned in the Bible in 1946 in the Revised Standard Version. There is no mention of or reference to homosexuality in any Bible prior to this – only interpretations have been made.
This claim may be accurate if you’re strictly looking at the word “HOMOSEXUALITY”. The term ‘homosexuality’ was coined in the late 19th century by a German PSYCHOLOGIST (wonder why a head shrink was needed for this?), Karoly Maria Benkert. Since the English translation of the Bible (KJV) happened in the 16th century and the word “homosexuality” didn’t come into our vocabulary until the late 19th century, that would make complete sense. Shoot, it wasn’t until the 1990’s that gays even started really coming out of the closet in America after Ellen DeGeneres’ public out-coming….she popularized “being gay”. Before that, it was still considered “SIN”, abhorrent, disgusting, and just plain immoral, thus why it was kept “In the closet”.
(Let me add that even though Ellen may have “popularized” “coming out”, homosexuality in itself is nothing new. It’s been happening since the Old Testament days, along with all other SINS.)
Now, let’s look at what the Bible says about it and the terms and translations that are used for it:
One of the verses that has been altered in this “revised” gay coddling and enabling bible is:
King James Version (KJV)
5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
In order to understand the CONTEXT of this verse, you must read the rest AROUND that verse. First, Lot accused their request as being “wicked” in the very next verse. If the men outside just wanted to “know” these angels, why would Lot have considered that “wicked”?
Second, in the very NEXT verse after that, Lot suggests giving the men outside his daughters “who have not known men”….meaning, they are still virgins. That wasn’t good enough for the men outside, they wanted the NEW GUYS and they got violent about it. Now, what straight man would turn away a virgin woman? Come on guys…..READ IT.
The next verse that was changed in this bible is:
King James Version (KJV)
22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
The term “shalt not lie” is translated from Hebrew Lexicon :: Strong’s H7901 – shakab which means more often than not to lay with sexually. As ONE (of many) example, it is used in Genesis 19 when Lot’s 2 daughters tried to bare his children to preserve his seed. Same sexual meaning in the translation.
Another verse this “gay bible” alters is:
King James Version (KJV)
13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
The same translation as above is used here also “shakab”.
“Mankind” simply means “man”. I think the verse is pretty clear. Is this NOT considered homosexuality? Man on man, as if she were a woman? Yeah……
Next altered verses:
Romans 1: 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (see translations here)
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. (see translations here)
Again, quite clear and concise to be referring to lesbians and gays.
There were others but I want to cut this short so let me just say this: If you are a practicing gay – calling yourself a Christian, you may want to read the following –
(KJV) 1 Corinthians 6: 9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
FOUR TIMES verse 9 points out sexual sin!!! And the majority of it having to do with homosexuality! (see translations here).
The above verse CLEARLY indicates (per translations) that homosexuals – of ANY KIND – WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD – PERIOD. It doesn’t matter if you have accepted Him as your Lord and Savior; if you have not been washed CLEAN by the Holy Spirit, and turned from your sexual sins, you will not be granted heaven.
I’m not a homophobe…that would mean I FEAR homosexuals and their activities. I do not fear any of it; my heart yearns to see as many saved as possible. I do not wish for anyone to be deceived, nor wish anyone to have to spend eternity in torture.
Here’s the homosexual’s choices: turn from your sexual sins and repent – give your life to Jesus and let Him heal you OR walk away from Him altogether and live and die in your sins. It’s your choice. But stop masquerading as a follower of Christ if you choose to be gay. It may fool some people, but it will NEVER fool God.
I pray all make the right choice.
In a nutshell – this “gay bible” is nothing more than an alteration to God’s very Word. It in itself is an abomination and those who change God’s Word will also have to answer for it.
Peace to you all today and every day.
