DEFINED King James
Bible Teaches That a Pastor Must Not be a
The word, "striker" appears only twice in the King
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 must not addicted to wine and not addicted to
striking! According to Waite Jr.'s definitions, a
bishop must not be addicted to two things:
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
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
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
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.
Webster's 1828 dictionary defined striker as:
1. One that strikes, or that which strikes.
2. In Scripture, a quarrelsome man. Titus 1.
