Smite a scorner, and the simplewill beware... -- Prov. 19:25

The O.T. admonition to smite a scorner in order that the simple will beware finds an excellent application regarding Bible correctors and the simple prey, who are taken in by their subtle "Yea, hath God said?". Yet, the Christian media is often disturbed, when such a blitzgrieg (lightning war) is unleashed on Bible correctors. Still, Bible correctors cannot be handled with kid gloves, for a scorner will not be taught, get understanding, be corrected (Pro. 13:1), nor admit their crookedness.

Bible correctors are on record with dirty tricks, underhandedness, name calling, ridicule, dirt digging, slander, and outright lying but are ever ignored and never criticized by the more politically correct Christian media and pulpits. Still, King James Bible believers were called "nuts" by the leading interdenominational soul winning periodical. A refined, politically correct, Christian media is ever for scolding Bible believers, while advocating and protecting the civil rights of Bible correctors.

David Otis Fuller, the epitome of a Christian gentleman, proved that it is a mistake to be on the defense with a Bible corrector. Fuller presented his gentle, non-aggressive, polite King James Bible case to the "bastion of fundamentalism" in South Carolina. What was the result? He was held in contempt and laughed to scorn. Lester Roloff's stand for the King James Bible among the enemy fared somewhat better in that he was apologized for in that he was just an old country preacher.

Dr. Peter S. Ruckman, whether you agree with him or not, whether you like him or not, or whether you approve of him or not, proved that Bible believers must be on the offense in order to defeat the Bible correcting scorners (liars, deceivers, and criminals). He busted clean through the enemy lines before they even knew he was there and before they could pick up their Jehudi knives. Later, the KJB regular army, accompanied by a host of Bible corrector deserters, followed with a mop up operation of the pockets of resistance that still remain.

Rank and file Bible believers are now enjoying the current pleasures of occupation. All because Dr. Peter Ruckman smote the scorners, many pastors and lay- men avoided the trap of Bible correcting. Now, even closet Bible corrector schools, pastoral candidates, and missionaries hide and lie about their King James Bible non-position, trying to hold on to both sides (inclusive policy) to gain everybody in the support of their institutions and ministries.

The past four decades have produced many converts and many pretenders to the King James Bible cause, due to such Blitzgrieg warfare. Bible correcting criminals and liars must be smitten with "sharp" public rebukes so that the simple will beware and avoid joining in the practice of stealing God's words from their neighbor (Jer 23:30) and that even Bible correcting liars, if possible, might be sound in the faith. Four decades of King James Bible contoversy has also enabled us to arrive at a biographical sketch or profile of a Bible correcting scorner. We have compiled the following characteristics.

Bible Correctors Lack Originality

A Bible corrector has no originality, for he spends his life playing copy cat mimicing and quoting other Bible correctors who quote each other. He does not study the Bible on the Bible issue; he studys what Professor Stashu Whatchmahamaczech says about the issue.

Bible Correctors Lack Internal Knowledge

Bible correctors will walk a mile to smell out a supposed contradiction or error in the King James Bible. They will not cross the street to solve the supposed error or contradiction. They can tell you what old time Baptists have said; they can tell you what the church fathers and councils and creeds and confessions of faith say on the matter. Yet, they cannot give you a thus saith the Lord on the matter and are pitifully shallow regarding the internal truth on the King James issue.

Bible Correctors Are Helpless Without External Knowledge

There is not a Bible corrector extant that can handle the loliest Bible believer, who stays in the Book. Bible correctors will not accept the challenge to settle the Bible issue with only the King James Bible, i.e. without concordance, lexicon, history, tradition, church council decisions, and expert opinions or the consensus of the scholars. Bible corrctors do not believe that the Holy Scriptures of God "throughly" furnishes the man of God or that the Holy scriptures of God, alone, can make one wise, for the Bible corrector does not have the Holy Scriptures. He seeks wisdom and does not find it (Pro. 14:6). Still, the Bible corrector does find knowledge. Since he is locked into his own or the assumptions of others, he reinforces and ebellishes these assumptions with any knowledge that he can find even half truth and falsehood until he becomes and ungodly witness (Pr. 19:8).

Bible Correcting Scorners Are Crooks

Therefore, behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that steal my words every one from his neighbour.    -- Jer. 23:30

Bible Correcting Scorners Are Vain Talkers,
Deceivers, and Liars

For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers...Whose mouths must be stopped...One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars ...This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;  -- Titus 1:10-13

...let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. -- Rom. 3:4

Bible Correcting Scorners Will Not be corrected

A wise son heareth his father's instruction: but a scorner heareth not rebuke.    -- Prov. 13:1
