Why I Read the King James Version of the Bible

kjv bibleI’ve long held to the belief that the best Bible in English is the KJV. I’ve read through it a few times, and will continue to do so. I don’t plan on picking up a modern version any time soon.

That’s not to say I’m antagonistic towards people who don’t believe the same way I do. I go to church with people who don’t read it. I listen to sermons preached from other versions. I get it: not everyone likes the KJV, or thinks it’s the best, or even thinks it’s accurate. That’s fine if people want to read other versions. I really don’t make an issue of it (and don’t care to, at all).

But I am convinced that it’s the best Bible you can read. (And easiest to memorize.) If you have a dictionary, a concordance, and a KJV – and you actually read it – you have all you need to be able to study God’s word. You can learn and grow spiritually from it as countless others have, and I think there are less impediments along the way when compared to, say, the NIV.

(But that’s just me. I’m just some guy – a nobody out of nowhere – and I am not an authority. I just know what works for me.)

However, I did find an interesting article about the KJV recently – Why You Should Read the Authorized (King James) Version?. The article is worth reading. I think the pastor who wrote the article makes some excellent points in favor of the KJV. He gives a few scholarly and practical reasons for reading the KJV which are worth considering.

One thing I’ve said for a long time – which I was happy to see in this article – is reference to the venerable word “ya’ll” and it’s equivalent in the KJV. (This guy gets it!) It might seem like a minor point, but it’s one I’ve never seen anyone else bring up. And understanding the difference forms of “you” can make a difference in the meaning of a verse. (No other English Bible allows for this distinction in its language, to my knowledge.)

Round Up (March 14): Future of USA – Mainstream UFO Sightings – Human Stasis – Google Censorship of Conservatives – Neuromancer Virtual Waifu – AI Mind Reading

What is the Future of the United States?

Even if you’re getting tired of all the winning lately, the truth is that the future is bleak. (At least, if you’re viewing the world with purely physical eyes.) Retired Green Beret Warns, Prepare For War: ‘Globalism, Socialism, And Communism’ Versus ‘Freedom’.

Key Quote: “The bottom line: J. Edgar Hoover and Joseph McCarthy had it right…100% right.” Yes, I agree with that statement. They did, and they were mocked then and now. But they have been proven accurate. Where and how does this play into the world’s future, and Bible prophecy? This quote should give you a huge hint: “The aim of these Communists is to have one world government.” (Where’d I see that before? Oh yeah: the books of Daniel and Revelation.)

Immortality Without God Through AI

More of the Wonders of AI await us. Even in the afterlife.

You’ve Got to Be Blind to Deny God’s Existence

Sorry, but it’s just irrational to not see evidence of creation. You literally can’t escape it.

Are UFO Sightings Going Mainstream?

It seems like mainstream news outlets have been reporting more and more on UFOs lately. And by reporting – I mean more serious examination of the phenomenon, instead of the usual lighthearted joking about “little green men” we used to hear about. These days, the reports have a more serious tone and the UFOs sightings are usually in an official (i.e. military, scientific) context. Here’s the latest example of a UFO sighting on video. Look for more of this in 2018.

(Does this relate to the U.S. Space Corps in any way?)

Suspended Animation Is Becoming a Reality

Suspended human animation – also called stasis, can be useful for many military applications. I write about this in my upcoming novel Alien Outpost. (Sign up for my mailing list to hear about it when I release it.) I’m not the first to have thought of the idea of suspended animation of humans, of course. The movie Alien has an example of it, and the movie Interstellar has it as well for purposes of space travel.

Is Censorship OK?

Google and Facebook think so – at least when conservative and traditional ideas are the ones being censored. It’s been happening on a smaller scale for over a year now, starting with the demonetization of certain videos on YouTube. Now, they’re ramping it up and going big. Mike Adams of Natural News lost his channel, and then wrote an article explaining what happened.

Whether you are a conservative or a liberal, you should be aware that this is not good. (And that’s an understatement.) Ever wonder why you never hear about any liberal media being censored?

DIY Genetic Engineering Is About to Explode

When you realize the capabilities we have or have easy access to, you have to be amazed. Watch a movie from the 1960s, and compare life back then to life now. The differences in many aspects of everyday life are vast, stark, and monumental. And that would be looking back only 50-60 years. (That’s NOT a lot of time in actuality.) Even science-fiction from up until fairly recently would have a hard time selling the concept of DIY genetic engineering – but here it is.

As far as we know, from creation until the 1800’s technological development was (mostly) on a straight line. Then things started to uptick slightly. In the early 20th century, there was a small spike. In the mid-20th century, we had a monumental uptick in our level of tech. Now, in 2018, to compare just the last 50-60 years to most of human history shows a severe difference. Why is that? There at least one specific hint in the Bible, and it’s found in Daniel 12:4.

Virtual Robot Waifu (William Gibson’s Fiction is Coming True)

I’ve read a lot of William Gibson’s sci-fi. Neuromancer was one of my favorite novels as a teenager. It was fun entertainment, and it was interesting because it predicted a gritty yet technologically-advanced future.

Now, that future is here. Who knew it could be so…pitiful? Watch the video below, showing the Gatebox virtual home robot (wife):

Yeah…no thanks. It’s kinda cool, but also the saddest thing I’ve seen in a while! Incel losers will have even more reasons to stay inside now. It’s yet another example of a REPLACEMENT, and if I had to choose which “kingdom” this would be from…it wouldn’t be God’s. (God is the one who implemented marriage between a man and a woman, remember.)

AI Mind-Reading is Coming

No joke – AI really is learning to scan brains and reconstruct imagery. It might not look particularly impressive now, but be aware of two things:

  1. The general public does not ever see the very latest developments in technology.
  2. In less than a decade, whatever state this technology is currently in will be many times better.

The End Result of Social Media

In one word: control. Put another way: censorship. Put in more stark and practical terminology: punishing people for how they think because it’s not acceptable to the people in charge. This is the end result of social media. A persistent online presence is what allows this to happen. Remember the social media score I’ve written about many times? This is why it exists. Sure, it’s useful for preventing crime. But it accomplishes this by preventing free expression of thought and clamping down (hard) on all behavior.

If you think about it, social media is the enemy of freedom.

How About Hand Grenade Control In Sweden?

I wonder what gun control confiscation advocates make of the European hand-grenade problem: Hand Grenades and Gang Violence Rattle Sweden’s Middle Class. Just think of the countless lives that could have been saved if Sweden simply created some hand “grenade-free zones” – that would solve it! .

Key quotes that stood out to me from this article:
“a vibrant, borderless Europe”
“I fear for the future of Europe.”
“It’s denial. Swedes are very good people and they want to change the world. They want the rest of the world to be like Sweden. And the reality is that it’s completely different.”

Sadly, reality hits hard when you run into it – or when it slams into you.

Round Up (Feb 26): Hybrid Humans – Islam – Immortality without God – AI – Hollywood Exorcist – US Space Command – UFOs

Human-Robot Hybrids Revisited

If you read my post on Satan’s “replacements”, you might remember the crazy concept of “hybrid kids“. (Yes, I acknowledged that it sounded absolutely nuts – but the idea came from a recognized “authority”. What do I know?) The concept of human-computer (or more specifically, human-robot) hybrid kids was also just mentioned by someone totally unconnected with the study of AI. This time, cartoonist Scott Adams posted about it. He asks if computers and humans can have babies – and outlines how he thinks it may be possible. It was interesting to see the idea mentioned again, no matter how unlikely it may actually be.

The Reality of Living Under Islamism

This article – History Lessons From Years Under Islamism
– was sobering and full of pithy, though-provoking realities. In our present world of Justin Trudeau touchy-feely niceness, and SJW inclusiveness, and Millenial triggering…sometimes you need to “red pill” yourself with a dose of reality. You need to read it, but here’s a quote (emphasis mine): “Despite openly reading about all this, many will still think it is impossible for something like this to happen in their country. What they fail to understand is that Iran is an example of exactly how successful this meticulous grab for power can be.” In other words, “yes, it can happen here”.

Living Forever – Without God!

The quest for immortality (without God) was in the news again recently. This time, the “futurologist” Dr. Ian Pearson tells how by about the year 2050, nano-bio-info-cogno (NBIC) convergence will result in mankind (or “people kind” for Canadian PM Justin Trudeau) achieving practical immortality through Godless technological means.

“Dr Pearson also thinks with the advancements of androids, such as sex robots, people will be able to download their minds into a machine.”

Invasion of the AIs

I said that 2018 would be the year of quantum computing. But it looks like more than anything, it’s going to be an explosive year for AI integration into everything: AI Weekly: Get ready for AI chips everywhere. AI-enabled products – both hardware and software – will gain prominence and will be everywhere. There will be no escaping it.

Exorcist to Hollywood

Who you gonna call? If you’re an actor, apparently you call this new-age spiritualist. She’s the exclusive exorcist to the Hollywood elite. Matthew 12:26 “And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?” Either she’s really doing what she claims, or she’s outright lying. Either way, it’s a scam: if she’s actually performing these “miracles”, you can bet there’s a supernatural deception at work. (For an example of what happens when people not in league with the devil try to cast out demons, look up the seven sons of Sceva in Acts.)

What’s Your Number?

The “number of a man” in Revelation makes even more sense now that all “people-kind” will have a number soon. Not your Social Security number: your “Social Credit Score” number. [Mentioned previously here as well.]

Secretive Space Defense Center

I found this news item about the US Space Command and the National Space Defense Center interesting. I mention something very similar in my upcoming novel Alien Outpost. If you’ve ever researched the supposed “secret space program”, you’ll understand why this National Space Defense Center is significant. Even though a news article was allowed to be written about it, this is a secretive unit. “‘This is not an Air Force unit,’ Brost explained. ‘It’s not really even a Department of Defense unit.’

More UFOs in the Mainstream News

If you were intrigued by the FAA recording from the previous mention of “Impending Disclosure”, you’ll want to check out this news item: You Need To Hear These FAA Tapes From That Oregon UFO Incident That Sent F-15s Scrambling. Was something unexplained actually flying up there? I have to think so. Was it aliens? I don’t really believe in aliens. Either way, people are being readied to accept the idea of “alien visitations”.
