Without doubt, many professing Christians have heard of the King James Version of the Bible, but this is about the Queen James Version! So what is the newly published (November 2012) Queen James Version? Besides having a very distinctive rainbow cross on the cover, it has altered various Biblical texts, which condemn homosexuality. It is a so-called Bible translation on the par with what Universalist Gary Amirault desires to have printed, that is, a Bible with all references of hell removed from it! (May it never come to pass!) The Queen James Version of the Bible is also similar to the New World Translation of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, which especially altered the deity of Christ texts, which refute their beliefs! Our day is one in which truth-rejecting people with power and influence change the Bible to read the way they want it to read. The fear of God has virtually vanished and many people, who heard God’s precious truths, have refused to repent and so remain lost.
The Queen James Version of the Bible is not helping homosexuals, since denial of a sin unto death is not helping anyone. Such a denial makes things worse for them and that is what the Queen James Version is really doing. What homosexuals (and all others in darkness) need is repentance unto God and a saving faith in Jesus (Acts 20:21). If done, their spiritual identity will change for the good, along with being freed from sin’s addictions at the point of salvation. In other words, their behavior will change too. That is the medicine homosexuals, and others, need. The truth is the truth and here it is. Forgiveness is available in the Lord Jesus:
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. (1 Cor. 6:9-11, NASB)
The Sodomites from Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for their sins. Jude 7 tells us it was sexual immorality and perversion. We get the word sodomy from the town of Sodom and its predominate sin. A synonym for sodomy is homosexuality—they mean the same. For the Queen James Version of the Bible to try to change those facts is futile. It doesn’t change the facts. Homosexuality (sodomy) remains a grievous sin in God’s eyes, but eternal life is found in the Lord Jesus Christ. Again, homosexuality is a sin and some do get saved. Don’t allow so-called translations like the Queen James Version deceive you.
