The Vatican claims King James Bible is Catholic


An interfaith exhibition called “Verbum Domini” (Word of the Lord) claims the roots of the King James Bible of 1611 are “entirely Catholic.”

Cary Summers, organizer of exhibit, says that all Christians share the King James Bible.

Verbum Domini will run from March 1 through April 15. Organizers of the exhibit state“highly contextual, interactive format” adds to  “the dramatic story of the Catholic contribution of the most-banned, most-debated, best-selling book of all time.”

Summers explains  the exhibition  proves that despite Protestant belief that the King James Bible was the highlight of European culture, through and through it’s really a Catholic book.

“If it had not been for the Catholics of the 1500s there would be no King James Bible,” exhibition organizer Cary Summers told CNA.

“Many of the original bibles that formed the basis of the King James Bible came from Catholic priests. Very few changes were made. The ancient writings that the King James writers actually mimicked and copied were by Catholic priests,” he explained.

The interfaith exhibit includes artifacts from Catholic, Protestant, Jewish and Orthodox faiths to present a “shared love of God’s word.” To  exemplify the interfaith theme, the first room visitors see is a scaled reproduction of the mid-third-century Synagogue of Dura Europos in Syria. Another exhibition highlight is the earliest known fragment of the book of Genesis, which comes from the Dead Sea Scrolls.

“Most people don’t understand the history of the King James Bible. There is a rich history, a very positive history of Catholic contribution to the creation of it,” Summers said.

“Unfortunately we live in a world that locks in on all the negatives, and that’s how it’s spun,” Summers remarked.“But there’s … a rest of the story which is very positive, too. And that’s what we are here to celebrate.”

My comment:
Those that have ears to hear, listen.
The Roman Catholic church wants the whole world to see her as a biblical church. Rome is  using this exhibit to gather all Christians and Jews under the Word of God, positioning herself as protector of the Word.
In order to seduce Evangelicals closer to Rome, she now claims the King James bible is Catholic. She can not leave out the Jews in her quest for interreligious dialogue, as Israel and the Holy Lands is very important to the Vatican.
The King James Bible was on the Vatican’s forbidden book list for hundreds of years.

Pope Pius IV had a list of the forbidden books compiled and officially prohibited them in the Index of Trent (Index Librorum Prohibitorum) of 1559. This is an excerpt:

Rule IV

Since experience teaches that, if the reading of the Holy Bible in the vernacular is permitted generally without discrimination, more damage than advantage will result because of the boldness of men, the judgment of bishops and inquisitors is to serve as guide in this regard. Bishops and inquisitors may, in accord with the counsel of the local priest and confessor, allow Catholic translations of the Bible to be read by those of whom they realize that such reading will not lead to the detriment but to the increase of faith and piety. The permission is to be given in writing. Whoever reads or has such a translation in his possession without this permission cannot be absolved from his sins until he has turned in these Bibles …

(end of excerpt)

The church would rather “withhold forgivenss of sins” than allow the people to read the Word of God. Are we now supposed to believe that we can all share the bible as one?

Let us not forget history or it’s martyrs. Many burned at the stake for translating the scriptures by the hand of Rome. She will do anything to gain control over the true church of Jesus and all the religions in the world. Don’t be fooled.

Revelations 17:4

The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries.

  1. A good eye-opener. Much of apostasy is still to come out.

  2. Simply amazing. Next, they’ll claim Tyndale’s and Wycliffe’s Bible, too.

    Do they ever get embarrassed?

    • What’s interesting is that 90% of the KJV is from the Tyndale. From my sources, Tyndale translating the NT from Greek to English was seen as goin against the pope. Of this is true, why would the RCC claim is suddenly?

      • Kashia, they killed Tyndale, impaled on a stake and burnt after convicting him of heresy for translating the Bible. They dug up Wycliffe’s bones and burned them for the same reason.

        Sue, it’s primarily about power, isn’t it? They’ll compromise on doctrine freely if it helps draw people back under their authority. Satan doesn’t care about his false doctrines, after all. They are only a means to an end.

  3. Hi Jon and Kashia,

    They will make this claim to have “Christian Unity” at all costs. They will lure in as many Evangelicals as they can. They will lure in other religions as well, that’s why this whole thing is “interfaith”. They will head up the world religion to come.

  4. RCC cannot approve King James Bible because it tells the truth about the 4th Commandment. God’s mark is in the 4th Commandment and they changed the day of worship from the 7th Day to the 1st, Saturday to the pagan day of worship, Sunday and then changed the words of God in the 4th Commandment. Truth….Exodus 20 KJV

    • Saturday was never a day of worship. It was a day of rest. Christians would me different times or several times during the week to worship and study God’s word.

  5. Absolutely right Jon. That’s what Vatican II is all about. Evangelicals were “heretics” during Vatican I. Then presto chango Evanglicals are now labeled “separated brethren.” Oh. We are brothers now? It’s a big fat lie to gain power and control. I am so grateful I am out from the grasp of her claws, thanks be to Jesus.

    • Saturday was not a day of worship. It was a day of rest. Paul says in I Cor. chap 16 ver. 1-4 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches in Galatia, even so do ye. Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. And when I come, whomsoever ye shall approve by your letters, them will I send to bring your liberality unto Jerusalem. The Christians use to meet to study and worship several times a week.

  6. Dont let your heart be troubled by that blasphemous catholic cauldron of perversion. They claim lots of things to make their religion look good. Peter the first pope. Peter was never in rome. What do you expect from a religion of idols and costume holy men? All you will get is a steady stream of lies and twisting scripture. According to the catholic church, only catholics go to heaven. Ahhhh Ha Ha Ha. These idiot catholics actually believe that.
