. . . according to their works:
The KJV inserts the word “god”, but with a capital “G”, over a dozen times where the word is not in the text that was translated. Look at any KJV+ and you can see the proof yourself (e.g. Luke 20:16)! The DRB, which is in some ways a Catholic version of the KJV, does the same thing. The KJV and the DRB do this by using the phrase “God forbid” when neither the word “God” or “forbid” is in the text being translated - no matter what codex you use.
Many folks worship their KJV more than they do YHWH. They depend on their KJV for the truth instead of what Jesus told them to turn to - the Holy Spirit. The KJV has become an idol to be defended more than the truths it contains. Tell a KJV’er you do not believe in God and they may try to share the Gospel with you. Tell them you are a “Christian” but that you do not believe the KJV is perfect and they often treat you with disdain as if you are a demon; and, if you dare try to change their minds they may well react as if you are working for satan.
Worse yet, they worship their KJV so dearly they refuse to even consider the teachings of Paul as false. Their devotion to the words of man has blinded them to the Truth of YHWH.
Saddest of all is that many KJV’ers also hold this devotion without having truly studied what any Bible says - even their precious idol the KJV. If they did then perhaps their eyes would not be turned “down” to read a book but Heavenward to the true teacher of Truth, the Holy Spirit. I would say inward but until they break the spell of KJV idol worship turning inward may reveal a different spirit entirely for most.
There are entire websites dedicated, not the spreading of the Gospel, but to promoting the KJV itself and ridiculing any who disagree. A book, a simple chunk of wood reshaped and worked by the hand of man.
The rest of humanity, who had not been killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, so that they did not stop worshiping demons and idols made of gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood — idols that cannot see or hear or walk about.
