You probably missed this year's book burning. Mark your calendars for 2010. Bring everything but a King James bible.

From the Amazing Grace Baptist Church website.... (When he refers to TR, he means "Textus Receptus". Generally used in scholarly circles to mean "the received text", or "the one we've ended up using".)

Come to our Halloween book burning. 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. These are perversions of God's Word, the King James Bible.
We will also be burning Satan's music such as country , rap , rock , pop, heavy metal, western, soft and easy, southern gospel , contempory Christian , jazz, soul, oldies but goldies, etc.

We will also be burning Satan's popular books written by heretics like Westcott & Hort , Bruce Metzger, Billy Graham , Rick Warren , Bill Hybels , John McArthur, James Dobson, Charles Swindoll , John Piper, Chuck Colson, Tony Evans, Oral Roberts, Jimmy Swagart, Mark Driskol, Franklin Graham , Bill Bright, Tim Lahaye, Paula White, T.D. Jakes, Benny Hinn , Joyce Myers, Brian McLaren, Robert Schuller, Mother Teresa , The Pope , Rob Bell, Erwin McManus, Donald Miller, Shane Claiborne, Brennan Manning, William Young, etc.
We are not burning Bibles written in other languages that are based on the TR. We are not burning the Wycliffe, Tyndale, Geneva or other translations that are based on the TR.

We will be serving Bar-b-Que Chicken, fried chicken, and all the sides.

That last line has brought me more joy and happiness than you can imagine.
This year's book burning has already taken place, but the 2010 event already has its own link. Go here to get directions.
One other thing that I can't resist mentioning.... King James was gay.
Pics of the King James Only controversy came from here.

Good grief! This "man" would fit in perfectly with Hitler in the Nazi era. Burn everything that you disagree with (or that disagrees with you).

I believe in that which lifts and makes man a richer more noble reflection of God, man's creator. And it doesn't have to come from only one source, from only one period in time.

Side thought: I'd pay to see a debate between this idiot & Ayn Rand. Too bad she's dead. Maybe her heir, Leonard Pelkoff could attend instead.

Incidentally, it never happened. It was a publicity stunt to get bloggers and others to report on the Amazing Grace church. When the appointed time came to actually burn Bibles, they closed out the media, had a crowd of about 15 people indoors in private for the grand event, and admitted that they burned nothing.

Not the best wqay to attract attention. If you want to have a church confab, then say so. Much easier on the nerves and reputation, & less mess to cle3an up afterwards.
