Remove Not the Ancient Landmark
By David J. Stewart
Proverb 22:28 and 23:10, “Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set ... Remove not the old landmark; and enter not into the fields of the fatherless.”
Back in the Old Testament, just as today, some people were as crooked as a dog's hind leg. In order to divide the land and show who owned what, large stones were used as landmarks to divide the land. Some people were dishonest thieves, who if the man of the house was not present, would move the ancient landmark set by their ancestors.
If a father passed away, dishonest neighbors would sometimes move the landmark, taking advantage of a widow and her children; moving the landmark to increase the size of their own plot of land. To prevent being noticed, thieves would often move the landmark a little at a time. Over time, much land could be stolen.
The King James Bible is an ancient landmark. God gave us the King James Bible to guide the way, set boundaries, and show us where the lines are drawn. Many crooked Bible publishers, richy rich pastors, and wicked people have moved the ancient landmark. In an effort to increase personal wealth, or out of intellectual arrogance, they have removed the ancient landmark.
Some false scholars have claimed that the King James Bible is not inspired. They have removed the ancient landmark! God's Word is inspired into whatever language it is translated. God breathed forth His Words of life (John 6:63; Philippians 2:16; Hebrews 4:2) and they are still alive. Any pastor who speaks highly about the King James Bible, while at the same time denying its inspiration, does injury and insult to the cause of Christ.
“Don't come to me with your stinkin' only the originals are inspired. You're not intellectual. You're retarded!”

Amen to that! Modern heretics have butchered the Bible for profit. They might as well start a Bible-of-the-month-club. By the way, all modern English Bible versions are corrupt! I cringe every time I go into a so-called Christian bookstore and see all the corrupt versions of the Bible on the shelves for sale. Satan has successfully confused nearly everyone; but if you still believe that the King James Bible is inspired by God, then you are awake to righteousness my friend.
Shall Jesus Find Faith When He Returns?
No wonder Jesus questioned whether there would be any faith when He returns. Luke 18:8, “Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” The implied answer is “no.” Faith comes from hearing the INSPIRED Words of God. Romans 10:17 says, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” If you're hearing a false version of the Bible, then you're not hearing God's Word, and no faith will come to the hearer.
When the serpent deceived Eve, he did so by casting doubt upon the Word of God. Revelation 20:2 teaches that the serpent is Satan. So what do you think a pastor who denies the inspiration of the English Bible, i.e., the only Bible most people in the reading world will ever know, is doing to his congregation? Those sorry rascals are doing the exact same thing as did the serpent, Satan, who woefully deceived Eve. Satan came to Eve and asked, “Hath God said?” (Genesis 3:1). Either we have God's inspired Words in English or we don't. Ladies and gentleman, WE DO! WE DO! WE DO! THE KING JAMES BIBLE IS THE INSPIRED WORDS OF GOD!!!
Satan knows that if he can convince people that their Bible is no longer inspired, then he can stifle and destroy their faith! Pastors are being corrupted right and left, trashing out the inspiration of the King James Bible. Consequently, our churches today are filled with religious people who have no faith. Such churches are booming in growth, with apostates, because of sissy-pants preachers who would rather go golfing than expose the evils of the Federal Reserve bankers (who have looted $23,700,000,000,000 over the past 2-years). Does your pastor even care? Most likely not! Yet he'll throw a bunch of twisted Scriptures in your face to make you feel like scum and trash for not giving financially until it hurts. Fire that bum! That minister wants your money, but he doesn't want to preach THE TRUTH.
In fact, you're giving him all your money (under the pretense it's going to God), so he can tell you more lies, twisting the Bible to mislead you to board the trains to Auschwitz. How dare you question where YOUR government spent YOUR money! How dare you care about YOUR children being exploited to die for agendas that have absolutely nothing to do with U.S. freedom! It is sickening that most churchgoers are naive, backslidden and woefully ignorant; being led as lambs to the slaughter.
Faith is not doing what everyone else does, that is conformity. Faith is stepping out on a limb to do what others won't do. David stepped out on faith to fight Goliath, while his peers wallowed in doubt. Abraham obeyed the voice of God, no doubt being overwhelmed in great sorrow, as he prepared to offer up his son Isaac as a burnt sacrifice. Noah moved with fear the Bible says (Hebrews 11:7) and built an ark while everyone ignored his preaching. The Bible says that they “knew not” until the flood came and took them all away (Matthew 24:39). They could have known; but they didn't care to know. The truth meant nothing to them, just as it means nothing to this MP3, HELLivision, and sports addicted generation of deceived fools. Love for sin always undermines the integrity of a society, causing people not to care about what's right anymore.
Do you know what is really sad? America's largest churches are the worst! I recently heard a fancy-pants pastor, who denies the King James Bible's inspiration, brag about how big his church is. Well, it must be his church because it's certainly not God's. There was a time when pastors were men of God, and were willing to preach to lose tithing members over the truth; rather than cater to large masses of ear-tickling, back-scratchin, apostate crowds! I want to vomit when I listen to these airbag preachers, with the arrogant smile glued on their face, who don't have enough sense to know when they've gone down a wrong path and are in trouble with God. Any pastor who denies the inspiration of the King James Bible needs to hear the words, “You're fired!”
You don't know what faith is until your life is so bad that you don't want to live anymore. God wants to vomit over today's richy-rich pastors, who are arrogant, praise Communists, and don't even know that their Bible is inspired by God.
Faith is attempting to do the impossible. Faith is trusting God when others are fleeing in despair. Faith is hanging in there when there's nothing left to hang onto except God. Faith is not quitting. Faith is believing the unbelievable. Faith is traveling in uncharted waters, searching for the unsearchable, loving the unlovable, and caring in the face of utter indifference. Faith is risking your neck for God. Faith is praying instead of worrying. Faith is going where others won't go, doing what others won't do, and being what others won't be for God.
Faith is soul-winning, caring and thinking on the things of others. Philippians 2:5 tells us to have the mind of Jesus Christ. In verse 4 we are told what the mind of Christ is, i.e., to look upon the things of others. The Christian life means doing more for others than we do for ourselves. We all fail in this area, because it is in our nature to be selfish, but it's never too late to start as long as God has given us another day to live and serve Him. Every day is another gift from God. Believers who don't care and ignore the Holy Spirit's leading will give account to God and be very sad on Judgment Day.
Go Back to Where You Went Wrong, And Do the First Works!
The good news is that a pastor who has erred concerning the Word of God can still do the right thing, if he's right with God to admit he's made a mistake. Revelation 2:5, “Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.” The Bible teaches to go back where you messed up, mend your ways, and move forward from there. I have tons of respect for a man who will admit he was wrong on the Bible or salvation, and repent.
I wish even one of the heretics that teach Lordship Salvation would just admit, “I was wrong.” This ministry is not about me; it's about THE TRUTH and the Lord Jesus Christ. Sadly, most men are arrogant and stubborn and would rather die wrong than admit they made a doctrinal mistake. Men are 1% chivalry, 1% muscle, 1% intellect, and 97% ego!
I wish even one of the heretics that teach that the King James Bible is not inspired would just admit, “I was wrong.” They would be respected by truth-seekers immediately, and by fellow believers who love the Lord Jesus Christ and the King James Bible. I will defend anyone who defends the King James Bible. But if you say that the King James Bible is not inspired, then you have denied Jesus Christ Himself, for He is the Word of God (John 1:1-1,14; Revelation 19:13).
Jesus' name is called the Word of God in Revelation 19:13. In John 1:1-3,14 we learn that the Word became flesh, Jesus, and we beheld His glory as the only begotten Son of God. Jesus is the Living Word. The Bible is the Written Word. So, of course, we're going to make a fuss over which Bible we use; for they are portraying different Christ's. The Jesus Christ portrayed by the King James Bible is ANOTHER Jesus (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4) than the Jesus portrayed by the demonic New International Version (NIV); the NIV plainly teaches in Philippians 2:6 that Jesus is not God. The NIV should be rightly renamed to the H.I.V., because it is more deadly than the A.I.D.S. virus.
I believe that God's curse is upon the ministry of any preacher who denies the inspiration of the King James Bible. Most people equate success with the size of a crowd that a preacher draws; but that is heathendom. The Guinness World Records site credits the largest live concert to Rod Stewart who drew 3.5 million for a New Year’s Eve 1994 performance at Copacabana Beach, Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.
So big deal if your church is nearing 15,000 attendance per Sunday. What good is that if you're teaching all of those poor souls that the King James Bible is not inspired by God? You're corrupting them and robbing them of their faith in the Word of God! I guarantee you that in one generation or less that your congregation will all be using the NIV2011 or some other piece of dung. And once you give the Devil an inch... he'll take a foot, and then a leg, and then your congregation's soul!!! It is a very sad day in America when pastors are denying the inspiration of the precious King James Bible. Jesus said in John 6:63 that the Words He speaks are LIFE (God breathed, inspired).
Hebrews 1:2 says God, “Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son.” Jesus' Words are still as much LIFE today as they were when He gave us His Word. God breathed life into the nostrils of Adam and man became a living soul. Likewise, our Bible is quickened, i.e., alive and living (Hebrews 4:12), because the Words came forth from God and are LIFE (John 6:63). To say that the King James Bible is not inspired is to say that God spoke living Words, but then those words died and are no longer alive (which makes your King James Bible no more alive the the daily newspaper on your kitchen table). Do you really believe that the Bible is no more alive than a newspaper? I believe THE TRUTH, which is that the King James Bible is God's INSPIRED, preserved, inerrant, infallible, perfect Words in the English language today. Don't you dare try to convince me that the King James Bible I hold in my hand is not God's inspired Words. Don't you dare!
The King James Bible is a Landmark
Only the trustworthy King James Bible, which was set as a landmark by God in 1611 is reliable. Only the King James Bible uplifts and honors the name of Jesus Christ. I don't understand why any preacher would deny the inspiration of God's Word. Someone needs to say to him, “You're fired!”
How can a translation not be inspired if God's Words are inspired? Our beloved King James Bible is inspired, because God's Words are inspired. Contrary to what many people think, the original manuscripts are not in Hebrews, Greek and Chaldean; but rather, in Heaven. Psalm 119:89, “For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.” Before the first word of Genesis was ever given to man, the last word of Revelation was already settled in Heaven. God's Word is inspired and always will be inspired, including the precious King James Bible, and only a woefully ignorant person would dare say otherwise. Proverb 22:28, “Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.”
The best advise for young and old preachers, teachers and Christians alike is to follow the old paths, the proven paths, the beaten paths, the tried and tested paths. Jeremiah 6:16, “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ASK FOR THE OLD PATHS, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.” We don't need a new Bible. The King James Bible is perfect. We don't need new doctrines. The fundamentals of the Christian faith are what we all need. We don't need a new method. Confrontational soul-winning is still God's method, where we confront lost sinners personally with the Gospel message. The word “new” is a dangerous word. Satan is always trying to introduce something “new” to forsake the old proven ways and paths. Give me the old paths!
We don't need new music in our churches. The old hymns of the faith are still meaningful. Contemporary Christian Music [CCM] chants things like, “I praise Him,” over and over and over; just as the heathen Catholics chant the Rosary and their recited so-called “prayers” (which are an insult to God almighty). The old hymns have rich Biblical meaning, which today's CCM music lacks. I visited a Baptist church where many of the members, especially the women, were swaying back 'N' forth, waving their hands in the air, having a religious experience; and they all looked nuts.
Many Bible publishers have changed the Word of God to make more money; such as the wicked men and women, including shameless homosexuals, who translated and published the New International Version [NIV] of the Bible. By corrupting the Word of God, they have removed the ancient landmark! In the NIV, Jesus is no longer the only begotten Son of God in John 3:16. In the NIV, the Godhead no longer exists, because the word has been completely removed. In the NIV, Jesus is no longer equal with God in Philippians 2:6. In the NIV, there is no longer a bottomless pit. In fact, all of the following terms are GONE, GONE, GONE...
God head, propitiation, regeneration, mercyseat, Calvary, remission, Jehovah, immutable, omnipotent, Comforter, Holy Ghost, Messiah, quickened, infallible, sodomite, fornication, trucebreakers, winebibbers, carnal, slothful, unthankful, effeminate, backbiting, vanity, lasciviousness, whoredom, devils, Lucifer, damnation, brimstone.
They have moved the ancient landmark.
Someone gave to me a “Bud Light” hat, which I changed to read “Jesus is the Light” instead. I don't drink beer, never have, and never will. You should see the frightened look on people's faces when they read my hat. This boozing, fornicating, partying, wicked generation is headed for the Lake of Fire. I am not ashamed of my Lord and Savior. The world is dying, literally, for Christians whose faith is genuine. Many churchgoers talk a bunch of garbage. Talk is cheap and I'm not buying any.
