Another Blasphemous Bible

First there was the HCSB Heroes Bibles (Military). Then it was The Green Bible. This was followed by The American Patriot’s Bible. This was followed by the The KJV Military Bible. Then there was the God’s Glory Bible. And now we have the “limited edition” God Bless the USA Bible.

This “bible” is inspired, not by God, but “by Lee Greenwood’s hit song and the most recognized patriotic anthem in America ‘God Bless the USA.’”

It is described as:

Easy-to-read, large print and slim design, this Bible invites you to explore God’s Word anywhere, any time. This bible has been designed so that it delivers an easy reading experience in the trusted King James Version translation.  This large print Bible will be perfect to take to church, a bible study, to work, travel, etc.

It had to be made with the King James Version in order to sell it.

The God Bless the USA Bible is in a two-column format with a presentation page, two ribbon markers, the words of Christ in red, and an American flag on the cover. It features five “USA documents”: the Constitution, the Bill of Rights (isn’t the Bill of Rights in the Constitution?), the Declaration of Independence, and the Pledge of Allegiance.” I’m surprised it doesn’t also include Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address and Emancipation Proclamation. The greatest feature of this new “bible” is sure to be the “handwritten chorus to “God Bless The USA” by Lee Greenwood.

According to an article in the Washington Post, Hugh Kirkpatrick is head of the Nashville company Elite Source Pro that is behind the “bible.” About 600 preorders have been placed from thirty states. “The new Bible is a clear symbol of Christian nationalism,” said Paul Miller, a professor at Georgetown University who is working on a forthcoming book on nationalism, Christianity and American identity. According to an article in the Tennessean, “Kirkpatrick said he’s fielded about 70 emails since the Bible’s announcement and roughly 60% have been critical of the project.”

This latest blasphemous “bible” is scheduled to hit bookstores in September to commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9/11. But for only $49.99, you can pre-order your copy today. And for a limited time, you can get free shipping! Although 100 percent satisfaction is “guaranteed”—“all sales are final.”

These blasphemous unholy bibles are corruptions of the word of God (2 Corinthians 2:17).

God bless the USA? Why should he? Is it because the USA is the abortion capital of the world, the pornography capital of the world, the drug capital of the world, or the transgender capital of the world? I am still trying to figure out which one.
