A 1985 Jack T. Chick tract.
So, what's bugging JTC now? The King James Version of the
Bible, or lack of thereof.
This tract tells about the horrifying Satanic conspiracy (well,
what else?) to destroy the Bible. It starts by telling that The
Apocrypha isn't part of the Bible, and that Satan influenced the
"intellectuals in Alexandria, Egypt, to mutilate Old and New Testament manuscripts of God's Word".
This was the fist attack; Then came (you guessed this) the
Catholics who made the Vulgata, the Latin translation of Bible.
Then, the tract tells how Council of Valencia denounced Apocrypha
but in Council of Trent Vatican declared Apocrypha "Holy Writ",
officially part of the Canon.
Then came the Inquisition. The most immortal part of this tract
is, of course, the Pope saying "Death to all heretics!" =)
Then, the Reformation - Luther, Protestants,
Tyndale - and then come the eeeeevil Jesuits, led by Ignatius
Loyola. Then, lots and lots of conspiracy stuff that even makes
my eyes glaze... Anyway, the point: Jesuits start to give the
Protestants a hell, but Puritans survived and published a version of
Bible without the Apocrypha, so Vatican started to make revised
version of stuff based on Alexandrian manuscripts...
...does this sound complicated to you? Maybe Chick is making this
conspiracy to sound a bit... tangled. Just like the guy in one picture
says, "I don't know what to believe anymore.".
Anyway, the modern-day point here is that the "Vatican is busy
secretly pouring millions of dollars into multitudes of new bible
translations, each one based on their own corrupted manuscript",
the Alexandrian stuff, of course.
Final words of warning here FUD more on the topic, advising that
you should "not allow (King James Bible) to be thrown out of your
church" because "Your old King James Bible (the Textus
Receptus in English) is the infallible Word of God".
So, how do you know if your Bible isn't "tainted"? Well, see
1 John 5:7: If it doesn't say "For there are three that
bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost; and
these three are one.", your copy of Bible is corrupted.
And remember: "Also beware of Bible footnotes. They often
favor the Alexandrian texts."
Damn me, mine says "Todistajia on näin kolme: Henki, vesi ja
veri, ja nämä kolme todistavat yhtäpitävästi." I guess this is
corrupted. (Never mind the 1992 Finnish translation is also
based on Dead Sea Scrolls... Some fundies here still insist using the 1933 translation, but I
prefer the 1992 translation because it's actually readable. =)
