James R. White, author of "The King James Only Controversy", founder & director of Alpha & Omega Ministries , a theologically Reformed Christian apologetics ministry based in Phoenix, AZ, will address the theme: "King James Only Gone Wild!: A Response to the Scheduled Bible & Book Burning in North Carolina".
Pastor Marc Grizzard of Amazing Grace Baptist Church in Canton, NC , has scheduled a "Halloween Book Burning" this Saturday during which, according to their web site, in addition to books by popular authors: "We are burning Satan's bibles like the NIV, RSV, NKJV, TLB, NASB, NEV, NRSV, ASV, NWT, Good News for Modern Man, The Evidence Bible, The Message Bible, The Green Bible, ect..."
While our guest today, Dr. James R. White, does not endorse the use of all of these versions listed above, nor does he have high esteem for all of the authors of books planned to be tossed into the fire this Saturday, he will respond to this kind of activity and the mindset that would lead to such an event as this, especially in light of the fact he considers some of these versions to be excellent, and that some of the authors of books scheduled to be burned are men Dr. White would highly recommend.
Pastor Marc Grizzard, host of the Bible & Book Burning, has been invited to participate in our broadcast and this was his reply:
You are asking for a debate, but must be lacking Bible knowledge. In Romans 1:28-29 Paul said, " And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers," I realize a so-called Bible "scholar" like Mr. White will say different, because his perversions have removed the word "debate." Mr. White does not believe the King James Bible is the preserved, inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God. He may have the save vocabulary, but he uses a different dictionary. He is a liberal, compromiser, and a heretic as far as I'm concerned. The fact is, he has abandoned the Word of God. "LET GOD BE TRUE BUT EVERY MAN; A LIAR!
For you to have someone to come on your show that questions the Word of God, corrections it, adds to it, doubts it, lies about it, and removes it, does not say much for you or your so-called Christian radio station.
