Amazing Grace Baptist Church in Canton, NC, is holding a book-burning on Halloween. They are burning satanic books. But you might be surprised at what they consider satanic:
- Any Bible that isn’t the King James Version. All other versions are “satanic” and “perversions” of God’s Word. That includes the New King James Version, in addition to my beloved NIV. The fact that they aren’t reading the original King James–that the KJV itself has been revised many times over the years–is probably lost on them. They prefer their issues in black-and-white, with no grays.
- Books by such heretics as Billy Graham, Rick Warren, Chuck Colson, Bill Bright, Tim Lahaye, James Dobson, and a slew of others.
- Practically any kind of music: country, rap, rock, pop, heavy metal, weastern, southern gospel, contemporary Christian, jazz, soul, or oldies. I guess that leaves classical and hymns. Oh, I didn’t see blues in that list.
Well, good for Amazing Grace and their grand total of 14 members.Leave a comment
