Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Don't be a "Barbarian"...Read the Bible

"You can't appreciate English literature unless you are steeped to some extent in the King James Bible…people don't know that proverbial phrases which make echoes in their minds come from this Bible. We are a Christian culture, we come from a Christian culture and not to know the King James Bible, is to be in some small way, barbarian...it is important that religion should not be allowed to hijack this cultural resource." Professor Richard Dawkins


God bless Richard Dawkins for this wonderful endorsement of the King James Bible. I read it daily, and have done for nearly 40 years. I also heartily "Amen" his convictions about religion not being "allowed to hijack this cultural resource."

Religion has always been the enemy of the Bible. It truly is the opium of the masses, and it has also been responsible for the spilling of the blood of Christian martyrs--from the time of the Old Testament prophets, to the time of Christ, to the Catholic Spanish Inquisition and their murderous Crusades, to modern day culture with its pedophilia, hypocrisy, and terrorism in the name of God.

Religion masquerades as His representative on earth, and yet it is the enemy of the gospel expounded in the King James Bible. It denies the basic tenants of the Christian message by preaching that we can enter Heaven by living good lives, doing good works, and believing in God, when the Scriptures so no such thing. Nothing we can do in the area of religious works will bribe God to forgive our sins and give us everlasting life. Eternal life is a free gift of God (see Romans 6:23, Amplified Bible), and cannot be earned or deserved (see Ephesians 2:8-9, Amplified Bible).

Pic. John Hus believed that people should be permitted to read the Bible in their own language, and they should oppose the tyranny of the Roman Catholic church that threatened anyone possessing a non-Latin Bible with execution. Hus was burned at the stake in 1415. After translating the Bible into commom English, William Tyndale was incarcerated for 500 days before he was strangled and burned at the stake in 1536, also by the Roman Catholic church.
