The monk who lives up a rock to get closer to God

Maxime Qavtaradze is following in the ancient traditions of the Stylites, or Pillar Saints: men of the Byzantine world who believed residing up pillars would remove them from temptation and provide ample opportunity for prayer and contemplation.

The monk's life of solitude came to light after New Zealand photographer Amos Chapple was permitted to photograph the man and his rock, but only after he had spent four days in intensive prayer.

At first life on the Katskhi Pillar, Mr Qavtaradze's limestone monolith which stands in the Caucasus Mountains that run through Georgia, was tough for the monk. ...

I'm glad you guys give me opportunities to point out how really bad the AV is.
Drs. Ankerberg & Weldon wrote:
In James White’s book, King James Only Controversy, there is a similar chart in which he compares the KJV, NIV and NASB. Of twelve primary references to Christ’s deity, the NASB is clear in 10 of 12 Scriptures. The NIV does it one better, clearly teaching Christ’s deity in 11 of 12 Scriptures. But, horrors, the KJV is clear at only 6 of 12 Scriptures.

Look for yourself. In the NIV/NASB are very clear or at least as clear as
the KJV:
• NIV—For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form...
• NASB—For in Him all the fulness of Deity dwells in bodily form...
• KJV—For in Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Do you think these new translations look like a satanic conspiracy to deny the deity of Christ? Obviously not.

By the way, has anyone yet pointed out the monk's actions are entirely selfish, it's all about "me." Really self-centered.

Jim's version says "He." If you can find anyone other than God that the "he" in the verse could possibly refer to, you might have a case. If there is confusion on this, it is yours.

James 4:11-12 KJV
11 Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
12 There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

Is this speaking of brothers in Christ? Is the Stylite a spiritual brother? Or an enemy of God? Is he a Roman Catholic? Do you think Roman Catholics are "brothers" to Protestants? Are you an ecumenist? Are you Roman Catholic? Did you make a judgment when you posted these verses? Do you hold someone guilty of breaking this law? Ad infinitum....

James 4:11-12 ESV

Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?

I wonder what Biblical verse he uses to support his claim that we should be removed from temptation and have ample opportunity for prayer and contemplation?

Then Jesus said to His disciples, 'If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will find it.'" (Matthew 16:24, 25)

"'Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.'” (Matthew 28:19, 20)

Hope someone shares the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ with him.
This man is unsaved and trying to work his way to heaven.
