I heard about the “Queen James Bible” sometime ago but I saw someone mentioned it on social media just right now. It is a LGBT friendly Bible.
What’s the first thought that came into my mind?
The other day I saw that Twitter was trending with the hashtag #BoycottDelta. It was about how supposedly Delta Airlines was racist and bigoted in kicking out a Muslim name Adam Saleh for speaking Arabic.
It’s ironic that the left spends so much time talking about censoring fake news…would be the very ones falling for (you guessed it) fake news.
Here’s David Wood exposing Adam Saleh. David Wood responded really well and cogently and gives examples to consider just how problematic Adam Saleh’s attempt to get attention is.
Share this with others for the sake of the truth because the truth matters.

Joby Warrick. Black Flags: The Rise, Fall, and Rebirth of the Islamic State. New York, NY: Doubleday, September 29th, 2015. 416 pp.
The author Joby Warrick is a journalist whose career includes covering the Middle East. Previously I read the author’s first book titled The Triple Agent: The al-Qaeda Mole who Infiltrated the CIA. I enjoyed this present volume a lot more both in terms of the subject and writing style. In Black Flags the author focuses on what was formerly known as Al Qaeda in Iraq and its founder Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and how the organization later evolved into the Islamic State. The book was filled with a lot of facts that I didn’t know before but learned from here. The work was so fascinating that I had a hard time putting down the book. Given how I am reading this book on the eve of the Iraqi and Kurdish army’s invasion into the last stronghold of the Islamic State in Iraq in the city of Mosul, I found this very timely and eye opening.
A Muslim from Nigeria tried to add me on facebook the other day. He has been going around online as a troll attacking Christianity. One of his charge against Jesus is that the Bible taught Jesus and His Disciples were thieves. That is, Jesus and disciples stole things from people. In a post titled “CAN WE CALL THIS AUTHORITY STEALING OR WHAT” this is what the individual wrote:
Mathew 12:1- King James Bible
At that time Jesus went on the
sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were an hungered, and began to pluck the ears of corn, and to eat.
Jesus was reported to also enter a farm that belongs to someone on a Sabbath day to take corn without the knowledge of the owner.
.Bible says that when Jesus was caught plucking corn, he said, have they not read it how David went into the Synagogue on a Sabbath day to eat what does not belongs to him.
My position is that Matthew 12:1 in CONTEXT does not teach Jesus and His disciples were stealing. Here’s my reply (note: while the Muslim troll quoted from the KJV, I’ll be using the NASB):
