Apparently it’s not enough to be King James Only, you have to be “The-Real-King-James Only.” I’ll have to check all the King James Bibles in the house to see if they comply. If I can find any. We generally don’t allow that sort of thing in our house. Might give the kids the wrong idea.
This is from the Jackson Summit Baptist Church website, which is this week’s pick for Fundamentalist Website of the Week at the blog Stuff Fundies Like. (But they should really call it a websight because everybody knows that s-i-t-e isn’t the Biblical spelling.) As one comment noted, after making a big deal out of the word Saviour (the British / Canadian spelling) they spell it “wrong” on their home page. Ooops!
One thing a lot of them do is change the spelling of words that end with the letters o-u-r to the more modern American spelling of “o-r”. For example a Behaviour becomes behavior. Endeavour becomes endeavor. Favour becomes favor. Honour becomes honor. Labour becomes labor, and Valour becomes valor. So, what’s wrong with that? Remember what the scripture said about a little leaven leaventh the whole lump?
The worst of this battle of “o-u-r” vs. “o-r” comes when dealing with the only begotten Son of God. The modern day counterfeiters have changed Saviour to Savior. They have given us a six-letter Savior in place of a seven-letter Saviour. In the Bible seven is the number of completeness, purity, and spiritual perfection. On the other hand six is the number of man and is earthly not heavenly. Every one has heard of 666.
The seven-letter Saviour is the only begotten Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ. The six-letter Savior is the son of perdition, the anti Christ. He wants to be like the most High (Isaiah 14:14,) but not in a good way, but in an evil way. The new versions, along with the new age movement, and some of the King James Bible counterfeits are preparing the way for this six-letter so called Savior. That’s the way he will spell his name, S-a-v-i-o-r not S-a-v-i-o-u-r. No thank you Satan. I’m sticking with the seven-letter Saviour as portrayed in the old black Book that I inherited from my forefathers.
