Revelation 22:18-19 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
A new homosexual-friendly Bible was released Nov.2012
By Jon Watkins- Online Ministries 12/14/2012
The “Queen James” version, according to the stealth publishers, is an attempt to “to prevent homophobic misinterpretation” of the the original Greek and Hebrew. They claim that the word “homosexuality” was not used in the Bible until 1946 when the Revised Standard Version was released, and that people have misunderstood the original meaning of the text. However, they reference The “King James” version and call it “Queen.”
The Publishers of the Queen James version make no other changes to scriptures other than the eight that they think have been translated wrong in reference homosexual behavior.
Instead of Leviticus 18:21 reading “Thou shall not lie with mankind as with womankind: it is abomination,” it now reads, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind in the temple of Molech: it is an abomination.” That change insinuates that homosexuality began as a pagan practice, and is only prohibited when sexual acts are performed while practicing paganism.
The publishers admit that the Bible prohibits other perversion and sins, but it does not matter where or how they are committed. Leviticus 18 forbids sexual offenses specifically Incest, Homosexuality and Bestiality.
The publisher also thinks that Romans 1 refers to men and women having same-sex relations is part of pagan idol worship, and changes it so it reads, “Their women did change their natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, left of the natural use of the woman, burned in ritual lust, one toward another, men with men working that which is pagan and unseemly. For this cause God gave the idolaters up unto vile affections, receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.”
1st Corinthians 6:9 was not immune either. They remove the word “effeminate” to read “morally weak.
They call the revised version the “Queen James” version because they say that King James, who allowed the Bible to be translated into English, was a bisexual. That part is true and you can find out more about King James Here
“King James I’s many gay relationships were so well known that amongst some of his friends and court, he was known as ‘Queen James,’” the website for the publication claims. “It is in his great debt and honor that we name the Queen James Bible so.”
They State on the official web site, “You can’t choose your sexuality, but you can choose Jesus. Now you can choose a Bible, too,”
The Queen James Bible sells for $35 and on the cover is a rainbow cross which is associated with homosexuality.
I just wonder if greed is a motivation here? At $35 they sure will make a lot of money as word spreads and the Homosexuality community rushes to buy one.
The publisher lists nowhere on its site who they are and what they believe. Are they a reputable publisher and what scholar(s) did they use to come to the conclusion that these scriptures were in error?
I have contacted them via the contact form on the official website asking just such information and at the time of the writing I have received no response.
