Bibles Fall Like Rain Over North Korea

On July 19, a balloon-launch team met near Paju, South Korea, to launch 30 balloons carrying New Testaments, Scripture verses and other gospelmessages into North Korea. With a typhoon fast approaching the Korean peninsula, heavy rain and wind carried the balloons directly north into the isolated country.

‚ÄúThe gospel is the good news which will save the dry branches in North Korea like a welcome rain,‚ÄĚ one of the missionaries exclaimed during prayer before the launch. The launch team was composed of missionaries, volunteers, university students and Christians with family members in North Korea.

South Korean soldiers visited the launch site as usual, but they were fewer in number than in the past. Despite the fortunate weather and circumstances, only 10 of the 30 prepared balloons were launched because of problems with the hydrogen fuel. Still, the team prayed before the launch and successfully ...

Rob, which criticism is that? I know I didn't say they shouldn't do such things, and no doubt the South Korean agenda had nothing to do with The Truth About KJV Only: The Mormon,Ecumenical,Homosexual,and Neo-Nazi Agendas. I understand that some people insist that non-English people learn to speak English so they can use the KJV! Now that's a load of rubbish, I would think Koreans would agree with Why I Do Not Think the King James Bible Is the Best Translation Available Today, and of course Restating The Obvious About Bible Translations. I would hope that you elaborate, Rob, and who your comment was direct to?

It's a pity that CD's and thumb drives aren't in general use by the Korean populace, they would be excellent devices to shower down on the North Koreans without causing physical damage, but quite correct, Roy, God gave us a whole Bible and not half of one, and they should get a whole Bible. Lets hope they put something like paper parachutes to let them down gently to the people below. I'm sure the Koreans have printed versions that are really small and light weight such as we do, e.g., NAS Outreach Bible, which would be quite good, especially if the U.S. Christians decided to do a balloon drop over England.

A complete hardback Bible flying through the air could be construed as an offensive weapon; it could even kill someone. Please do not misinterpret the verse which says that we are to some the savour of death unto death.

A Gospel of John is fine to begin with.

Nope Jimmy boyo.
That won't work either.
I started off with the NIV, moved out when I realised it was a counterfeit and tried several others before the LORD helped me to arrive at the Bible He has been using for centuries. Which Jim as you know is the KING JAMES BIBLE.

Praise be to God.

Remember Jim that we KJV users had the good sense to check out the Liberal Anglican buddies of yours and recognised they were a couple of heretics and papist sympathisers, whose higher criticism counterfeit text is used by modern versions; - And then took the version which God has Himself authorised over centuries, by HIS use; = KJV/TR..

Conjecture #1: The use of the KJV has become a tradition in the English-speaking world. Many fundamentalists have used the KJV all of their lives and would find it very difficult to use another version.

Human nature is such that once people are locked into a tradition, they find it very difficult to change. Even the most pleasant changes are sometimes difficult to adjust to emotionally. If a person has used only one version of the Bible all his life, any different version will seem strange. Anyone would feel defensive if he were told that some of the passages he had memorized and preached on were not exactly the inspired words of God. Differences in the text will always be attributed first to errors in the other person's version rather than in one's own.

John
Take a read of this.
Thank you very much.

The link in that article given by a VOM person to the question: "I asked a representative of VOM on Twitter what the Roman Catholic policy was, after discussing the issue with him, and he gave me this link on their website: http://www.persecution.net/faq-kinds.htm," is not available any more. Makes you wonder why.

Pastor Wurmbrand died in 2001 apparently. I wonder if the ecumenists got into places of authority within the group.

One thing is for sure, their statement of doctrinal beliefs does not allow for Catholics or any other works salvation folks to be Christian. But then, they might have no personnel in office who understand confessions.

The proof is in the pudding. If VOM supports Catholics who are persecuted, claiming they are suffering for Christ, then they are assuredly an apostate parachurch organisation which one could never support.

I hardly think I'll listen to the opinions of a man who believes that God has predestinated the majority of folks (including you, most likely) to be damned, and that, without remedy.

This is going to be my last post on this trend about a Korean KJV.
I ask a KJV Bible-believing pastor in Korean what is the KJV Bible Korean, and he said:
Dear Sir:
It is the word for word translation of the English KJV.
Thanks.
This was Pastor Jung of Charity Baptist Church, just find his email at the bottom of the right side of CBC website; if you want ask him yourself.

Quite so, Unprofitable Servant.

I did try to ascertain from the article which group sent these balloons up, and it appeared to be The Voice of The Martyrs (set up by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand), and upon visiting their website, I noted that their motto verse was rendered in the King James Version.

A site like that is hard to visit, because it is devoted to the suffering saints the world over and it makes the heart bleed. And Pastor Wurmbrand certainly had his share of persecution, and his family. "Tortured for Christ" is a booklet well worth reading, and reveals how a man full of the Spirit and by God's grace can yet love his enemies and desire their salvation.

Best have a read of what the consultant to the TBS has to say about this "somewhat inferior to the KJV" Bible.

New King James Version - Part 1

New King James Version - Part 2

Just so as you get your facts straight, Jim.

Oh, prove it! I'll take the word of Godly men they used the TR for the New King James Version. KJV translators used what fitted their political agenda, Is the King James Version a ‚ÄėRoman Catholic Bible‚Äô? The answer to that of course is yes.

But, John, you might as well say they copied the NKJV....
Jim, you know full well the issue is one of the original languages and which text to translate from. The Korean Received Bible is so called because it is translated from the Textus Receptus. And of course it will be in modern Korean not 17th C Korean. The advantage is that it will not be corrupted by Westcott and Hort, nor by Nestle, nor by Aland, nor by the United Bible Societies, nor by Buce Metzger, nor by any other liberal, modernist or other Bible corrupter.

It's a shame you are not able to rejoice as many have done here, in seeing the North Koreans receive a Bible portion, irrespective of version. Instead, you simply use the thread as a launchpad for your tirades against the KJV, a Bible God himself has set his seal upon.

You're a sad man.
