DEFINED KJB Teaches That a Pastor Must Not be a Striking Addict

The word, "striker" appears only twice in the King James Bible:

A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;  1 Tim. 3:2, 3

For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; Titus 1:7

The King James Bible says that a bishop (a pastor) must be blameless . . . no striker.

We know what the King James Bible says. What does D. A. Waite, Jr. say?

The DEFINED King James Bible defines striker as a particular kind of addict:

striking or punching addict

D. A. Waite defined the noun, "striker" with the noun, "addict." He used the adjectives striking and punching to modify the noun, "addict." In so doing he changed the meaning of striker.

Instead of striker meaning "one who strikes," D. A. Waite says striker means addict. What kind of addict? A striking and punching addict.

The DEFINED King James Bible footnote defines the word, "given" ("not given to wine") as "addicted." Therefore The DEFINED King James Bible is teaching that a bishop/pastor is not addicted to wine and not addicted to striking! According to Waite Jr.'s definitions, a bishop must not be addicted to two things:

(1) wine

(2) striking

Please note that wine was much weaker in Bible times than the wine of today. It would be perhaps 4% to 7% proof and then mixed in three parts water. A man would have to drink a large amount of wine to become inebriated. The quality of the water was not always reliable so wine was a common beverage. Therefore the Scripture's assertion that a bishop must not be given to wine makes sense.

According to The DEFINED King James Bible, a bishop (pastor) must not be a striking or punching addict. He must not be addicted to striking or punching (others).

The DEFINED King James Bible, via its footnote, falsely teaches that God does not forbid a pastor to be a striker. Rather, it forbids him to be an addict: a striking/punching addict.

 

Review: The Huge Difference Between "No Striker" and  no "Striking or Punching Addict"

The DEFINED King James Bible is teaching that a bishop must not be an addict: a striking or punching addict. Can one engage in striking or punching without being addicted to it? Yes. Therefore, D. A. Waite's replacement of the word, "striker" with striking or punching addict does not rule out a pastor occasionally striking someone. The replacement of the noun, "striker" with the noun, "addict" perverted God's standards for a pastor.

 

Note:

Webster's 1828 dictionary defined striker as:


1. One that strikes, or that which strikes.

2. In Scripture, a quarrelsome man. Titus 1.
