We are Christians, disciples of Jesus Christ. We read the King James Bible daily; we continue in the Word. Our hope is in Jesus Christ:
“...Christ in you, the hope of glory:”
This was not always the case. In the past, we thought we were Christians, but unfortunately we had been deceived. Over the years we were in different churches - Methodist, Presbyterian, Episcopalian, and some others. We were in different Bibles - but not the King James Version. We were members of a protestant church. We were involved in social groups, attending services, and teaching Sunday School. But we didn’t know the truth.
A pamphlet came into our possession which discussed the different Bible Versions, making the case for the King James Version as the only true word of God - the rest being perverted. The Lord convicted us that this was true. So, we got rid of the bibles we had and started reading only the King James Version. This was like the difference between night and day:
"To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me."
Things were different for us now. We had the mind of Christ:
"But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ."
As we read the King James Version (KJV), the Spirit of God came into us:
"It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life."
We had faith:
"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."
The word of God is the KJV - so now we had faith - not a false faith from a false bible (see our KJV tract).
We were now spiritual - not in the flesh:
"Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more."
But we knew Christ spiritually. In the old churches, in the old Bibles, etc., we knew Christ after the flesh - but now we knew Christ spiritually. Praise God!
As we daily read the KJV Bible, we became acutely aware that we also had to do what it says:
"But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves."
We tried to convince friends, pastors, and others, including in the protestant church, of this truth. No takers in the church. They were in the dark and blind, but thought they were saved, and in need of nothing:
"I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:"
So they were blind and Jesus was going to spue them out of His mouth. If Jesus does this, then they’re not in the Body of Christ - they’re not saved. They’re lukewarm. We wanted no part of this fate. We knew that they were blind and:
"Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch."
We didn’t want to fall into the ditch.
The bibles they used were “false Christs” and therefore idols (see KJV tract). These people were idolaters - and didn’t know it.
God forbids us to “keep company” with anyone who calls himself a Christian and yet is an idolater:
"But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat."
We can’t eat with them; that is, we can’t eat “the bread of life” (), which is Jesus, with them. This means no Christian fellowship with them.
So, if we stayed in that church it would be sin because we’d be breaking God’s commandment. This would mean death to us because “...the wages of sin is death...” (). Or we could comply with God’s admonitions:
"Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry."
"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?"
"Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty."
So we did. We came out of the false churches. We separated ourselves from false brethren, from false bibles:
"Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom."
Since we can find no local “church” that complies with God’s standards and requirements as found in His Word (KJV), we have a home church. We fellowship with those who are like-minded, accepting the KJV as the complete, perfect, and final authority and truth: The Word of God.
