KING JAMES! How amazing that this man is SO BELOVED by FUNDAMENTAL BIBLE Christians today, and yet he - the King James who translated His Own Bible, the KJV - was the GREATEST PERSECUTOR of Christians in the modern era.
* * * King James HATED Bible Christianity.
* * * King James created HIS OWN RELIGION, by mixing together precepts & practices from the Roman Catholics & Protestants into one church - 'The Church of England'! - seeking to stop the fussing between them.
* * * King James HATED the Puritans who wouldn't be part of the 'RELIGION & CHURCH' he was the leader of: Church of England.
* * * King James HATED the Puritans defying him SO MUCH he made laws to FINE THEM for not attending Sunday Services at HIS CHURCH.
* * * King James HATED the Puritans defying him SO MUCH he also made laws to FINE THEM for holding any kind of independent Church service.
* * * King James PERSECUTED TRUE BELIEVERS by making Christianity with Scripture as the highest authority - instead of him: ILLEGAL.
* * * King James stripped the license of ministers who would not join HIS CHURCH, and imprisoned them for preaching or teaching WITHOUT HIS LICENSE.
* * * King James HATED Bible Christianity so much he determined to translate HIS OWN BIBLE. Name it after himself.
Set guidelines for HOW it was translated.
Must portray the Church as that which the King could own & control.
Must portray the Church as SUBJECT to the KING, making himself as KING to be a 'higher authority.'
Must portray the Church as NOT having authority to VOTE and make civil law for their community.
King James made HIS BIBLE the ONLY legal Bible allowed in England
* * * King James sent soldiers to take Christian husbands away from their families for defying his Church!
* * * King James put women & children in jail!
* * * King James AUTHORIZED the stealing of ALL of the goods belonging to the Pilgrims: tools, clothes, furniture, money, etc.
* * * King James AUTHORIZED soldiers to remove women's clothing to search for money inside their undergarments.
* * * King James made it LAW that NO ONE WAS SAVED UNLESS they joined HIS CHURCH and obeyed HIS LAWS.
* * * King James actually sought to have His Parliament decree that King James himself 'was a god!' and worthy of worship of the people of England!
Do you UNDERSTAND why the Pilgrims FLED FOR THEIR LIFE, and Braved the Hardships of Wilderness Life in America?
Following are just a few statements taken from William Bradford's Journal of the Pilgrims struggle for Religious Freedom TO OBEY THE BIBLE. [Bradford was a Pilgrim leader and came to America on the Mayflower, and was voted as the first Governor of the New Nation!Strong> Title of his writing: 'Of Plymouth Plantation'
And first of the occasion and inducements hereunto; the which, that I may truly unfold, I must begin at the very root and rise of the same. The which I shall endeavor to manifest in a plain style, with singular regard unto the simple truth in all things; at least as near as my slender judgment can attain the same.
> >  Sometimes by bloody death, cruel torments; other whiles imprisonments, banishment's and other hard usages; as being loath his kingdom should go down: the truth prevail, and the churches of God triumph: establishing the beauty, liberty and purity of God’s ancient order in every land! liberty and beauty. [revert to their ancient purity and recover their primitive order], . . . (1)
> >  The violence truly (saith he) was no less than that of old practiced towards the Christians when they were compelled and drawn to sacrifice to idols; for many endured sundry kinds of torment often rackings and dismembering of their joints, confiscating of their goods; some bereaved of their native soil, others departed this life under the hands of the tormentor, and some died in banishment and never saw their country again, etc. (2)
> >  For to let pass the infinite examples in sundry nations and several places of the world, and instance in our own, when as that old serpent could not prevail by those fiery flames and other his cruel tragedies, which he by his instruments put in ure (5) everywhere in the days of Queen Mary and before,
> >  Mr. Fox recorded how that besides those worthy martyrs and confessors which (6) were burned in Queen Mary's days and otherwise tormented, . . .
Literally scores of other statements could be given, but suffice to say, England had many decades of GREAT PERSECUTION.
[NOTE! The citation numbers are not in numerical order as I did not select them all, just numbers (1) (2) (5) & (6) that Mr Bradford gave.]
The Pilgrims Suffered for Christ as almost no people ever have!
KING JAMES was the LAST of the Great Persecutors of TRUE BIBLE CHRISTIANS! HOW & WHY do so many Modern Believers Believe "HIS BIBLE" is the BEST ONE!
How can an EVIL KING like King James of England, who put preachers, men, women, and even children in JAIL, who fined people heavily for NOT attending HIS CHURCH, who fined people for holding 'PRIVATE BIBLE STUDIES' in their homes and in some case stripped them of their jobs & livelihood for this "CRIME"!
How can he be considered such a holy and godly leader whose EVIL DESIGNS came upon a most dastardly deed!
'If I can't change these BIBLE CHRISTIANS
make them attend MY CHURCH
and listen to ME INSTEAD OF THEIR BIBLES
and make them STOP HAVING PRIVATE BIBLE STUDIES IN THEIR HOMES
If I can't change them . . .
I WILL CHANGE THEIR BIBLES!
-The Decision of King James of England
If I can't change the Bible CHRISTIANS, I'll Change the Christian's BIBLE! (So he did!)
