Yes, you read it correct—an independent church in North Carolina —Amazing Grace Baptist Church–is planning on celebrating Halloween by burning Bibles, and Christian books that they consider to be ‘heretical’.

According to the church website they will be burning English versions of the Bible that they say are ‘satanic’–“NIV, RSV, NKJV, TLB, NASB, ESV, NEV, NRSV, ASV, NWT, Good News for Modern Man, The Evidence Bible, The Message Bible, The Green Bible, and etc.”

This church uses the King James Version only and considers all other English versions to be perversions of the Word of God.

They will also be burning Christian books many of which were written by prominent Evangelical leaders:

“We will also be burning Satan’s popular books written by heretics like Westcott & Hort , Bruce Metzger, Billy Graham , Rick Warren , Bill Hybels , John McArthur, James Dobson , Charles Swindoll , John Piper , Chuck Colson , Tony Evans, Oral Roberts, Jimmy Swagart , Mark Driskol, Franklin Graham , Bill Bright, Tim Lahaye, Paula White , T.D. Jakes, Benny Hinn , Joyce Myers , Brian McLaren , James White, Robert Schuller, Mother Teresa , The Pope , Rob Bell, Erwin McManus , Donald Miller, Shane Claiborne, Brennan Manning, William Young, Will Graham , and many more.”

To round off the festivities they will be having Fried Chicken and as a side they will be burning heretical music including contemporary Christian music:

“We will also be burning Satan’s music such as country , rap , rock , pop, heavy metal, western, soft and easy, southern gospel , contemporary Christian , jazz, soul, oldies but goldies, etc.”

Response: Wow! This is even scarier than some of the dark and evil costumes or decorations we’ll be seeing tonight. Obviously this is not a ‘mainstream’ evangelical Baptist church and according to their website they are not affiliated with any denomination (obviously).

This can be seen as a ploy by the pastor to get publicity for his new church.

Other than that, the publicity for this event has gone viral. Unfortunately it has been cast by some as an example of how closed minded and ridiculous some Christians can be.            *Top

    Yes … I believe that I saw that this church has something like 14 members. That a church in the Bible Belt has only 14 members says something, but I’m afraid that that something gets lost in the “look at those wacky Christians” bit.

    Me, I’m sitting here listening to my Casting Crowns (on their list of evil music) reading my non-KJV Bible and thinking that these guys really, really didn’t get the part about Pharisees being wrong.

    Yes, apparently you are correct about the 14 members. This is almost as bad as that other unmentionable one family ‘Baptist’ church that the media ‘loves’ which goes around and pickets soldier’s funerals.
