Famous Atheist: Let's Eat Human Meat – HOLLY NOTE: We've hit new lows with disgusting behavior. See 2 Timothy 3:3. Many Evangelicals will not look at any Bible other than the King James, but we figure you guys got the message already s weo aim to reach those that need to hear God's message and warnings in a digestible form. Unfortunately many that ascribe to KJV only think it sets them above and apart from the rest of God's children. It doesn't change the core message of scripture that Yeshua is God's only Son, He died for our sins and He is the only way to salvation. That is the BIG message. Time is short and we must reach every willing ear, no matter how far flung. Feed the belly first, then the soul. We are speaking to those that need God's word in understandable English, explained in real terms, so consider the big picture about winning souls. ET
