AND MODERN BIBLE VERSIONS
By Daryl R. Coates
Attempts to Reduce, Change,
or Simplify the Bible's Vocabulary
Typical of an Effeminate "Christianity."
The foolish attempt to discredit
the word "baptize" in the King James Bible is an effeminate tactic to disarm the
English-speaking saints of God. English has the largest vocabulary of any language
in history, and its largeness is the result of English's masculinity. In 1905
Danish linguist Otto Jespersen, one of the premier scholars of the history of
the English language, wrote in Growth and Structure of the English Language (rpt.
Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1982),
English is more
masculine than most languages. We see this in many ways. ... The business-like,
virile qualities of the English language also manifest themselves in such things
as word order.... In England every writer is, and always has been, free to take
his words where he chooses, whether from the ordinary stock of everyday words,
from native dialects, from old authors, or from other languages, dead or living.
The consequence has been that English dictionaries comprise a larger number of
words than those of any other nation, and that they present a variegated picture
of terms from the four quarters of the globe. Now, it seems to be characteristic
of the two sexes in their relation to language that women move in narrower circles
of the vocabulary, in which they attain to perfect mastery so that the flow of
words is always natural and, above all, never needs to stop, while men know more
words and always want to be more precise in choosing the exact word with which
to render their idea, the consequence being often less fluency and more hesitation.
It has been statistically shown that a comparatively greater number
of stammerers and stutterers are found among men (boys) than among women (girls).
Teachers of foreign languages have many occasions to admire the ease with which
female students express themselves in another language after so short a time of
study that most men would be able to say only a few words hesitatingly and falteringly,
but if they are put to the test of translating a difficult piece either from or
into the foreign language, the men will generally prove superior to the women.
With regard to their native language the same difference is found, though it is
perhaps not so easy to observe.
At any rate our assertion is corroborated
by the fact observed by every student of languages that novels written by ladies
are much easier to read and contain much fewer difficult words than those written
by men. All this seems justify us in setting down the enormous richness of the
English vocabulary to the same masculinity of the English nation which we have
encountered in so many other fields. (pp. 15-16)
then, to remove words from the King James Bible (like the efforts to produce modem
"bibles" that are "easier-to-read" and "more up-to-date" and have "simplified
vocabularies") are symptomatic of the effeminate spirit and tendencies of the
Bible's critics. Such a spirit is why a lesbian helped to polish up the sodomite
generated "style" of the perverted New International Version (NIV) "bible", why
the NIV committee later (like the New Revised Standard Version and Contemporary
English Version committees before it) tried to produce a "gender inclusive" perversion
of God's words, why ministries and movements that are headed by and which cater
to women are drawn to the false "bibles", and why "Christianity" at the close
of the twentieth century is composed of so many ministers who would rather weakly
"keep promises" than "Be strong and quit (them)selves like men" (1 Sam. 4:9).
If this seems overstated, consider the thesis put forth by Leonard Shlain
in his 1999 book The Alphabet Versus the Goddess: the Conflict Between Word
feminine values, and women's power depend on the ubiquity of the image. God worship,
masculine values, and men's domination of women are bound to the written word.
Word and image, like masculine and feminine, are complementary opposites. Whenever
a culture elevates the written word at the expense of the image patriarchy dominates.
[Then we can also assume that when a culture elevates the image at the expense
of the written word, matriarchy dominates-as in Hillary Clinton and Janet
Reno and Donna Shalala and female Supreme Court justices ad infinitum.] (Qtd.
on page 6 of the June 1999 The Quality Paperback Book Review.)
As an obviously agnostic and feminist (and possibly pagan) "scholar," Shlain
fails to grasp the true significance of his discovery that (in the words of the
June 1999 The Quality Paperback Book Review), "the very act of reading
an alphabet reinforce[s] the brain's left hemisphere (linear, abstract, predominantly
masculine) at the expense of the right (holistic, concrete, visual, feminine)."
It's hardly surprising, then, that in our culture literacy
and morality decreased and goddess worship increased following a rising emphasis
on images (picture magazines and books; television; viewscreens; video games;
computer icons), or that antichrist will employ an image to further enslave people
in the tribulation. Nor is it surprising that there was no success in any "women's
movements" until Great Britain and America both abandoned the AV 1611 in favor
of counterfeit "bibles", nor can there be any ecumenical success unless men abandon
the AV 1611 in favor of the words of a "woman" (Rev. 17-18).
Every English "bible" for more than a century has derived in some way from
the Catholic text of a "whore" who is "THE MOTHER OF Immorel HARLOTS" and "drunken
with the blood of the saints" (Rev. 17:5-6). The best way to resist her spirit
is to stay true to the masculine text produced by the masculine Spirit of the
masculine God who gave His only begotten Son so "that he might redeem us from
all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works"
(Tit. 2:14). Those who abandon the true masculine words of God will inevitably
give themselves over to "profane and old wives' fables" (1 Tim. 4:6-7).
