The Country That Produced The King James Bible To Remove It From Courtrooms

Defendants and witnesses in British courts will no longer swear on the Bible to tell the truth under controversial plans being considered by a powerful body of judges....

England today is in the midst of a liberal firestorm. Having allowed, for the past 20 years, Islam to multiply and flourish within their borders, they now find themselves being crowded out of their own country. Now to “seal the deal’, they are drawing up plans to have the God of the bible kicked out of their courtrooms.

And what will God do about it? He will leave them to their own devices, as He does with ALL nations that reject Him and His holy word. You would have thought that England would have learned their lesson with Israel and the Balfour Declaration in WWI. Guess not.

“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” Psalm 9:17

From Daily Mail UK: Defendants and witnesses in British courts will no longer swear on the Bible to tell the truth under controversial plans being considered by a powerful body of judges.


The traditional religious oath could be scrapped amid concerns that many giving evidence in criminal cases no longer take it seriously. Instead, all witnesses and defendants would promise to tell the truth without mentioning God, and would acknowledge they could be jailed if they are caught lying.

It is claimed the new oath would be fairer for everyone and make it easier to understand the importance of what they are saying. But critics point out non-believers already have the option of promising to tell the truth without any reference to a sacred text, and that the change would further erode Britain’s Christian heritage. 

The historic change will be debated this month by the Magistrates’ Association, and if it is voted through the organisation’s influential policy committee will draw up plans to be sent to the Ministry of Justice.

The married 62-year-old was raised in the Jewish faith but now calls himself an atheist. ‘I don’t intend my motion to make any comment on religion,’ he said. ‘It is certainly not anti-religious.’ But it has been seen by senior figures in the Church of England as another attempt to chip away at the country’s Christian foundations.

The Rt Rev Michael Nazir-Ali, former Bishop of Rochester, said: ‘This could be the slippery slope towards the increasing secularisation of society. Where will it end – with the Coronation Oath? The Bible is bound up with the constitution, institutions and history of this country. It is right for people to have a choice of oath, a religious or non-religious one. But we are being urged, in the name of tolerance and secularisation, to restrict that choice.’


This is the face of England today. Islam is in the ascension and has forever changed the landscape of Britain.

The Rev Arun Arora, director of communications for the Church of England, added: ‘Given that the last census showed almost 60 per cent of respondents self-identified as Christians and two thirds as people of faith, this proposal seems to ignore the statistical reality that we remain a faithful nation. This kind of proposal seems driven more by blinkered campaigning agendas than abiding interests in justice and truth.’

John Glen, Tory MP for Salisbury and a magistrate until last year, said: ‘This smacks of political correctness gone mad.’ Legal expert Lord Carlile QC said: ‘It would be unacceptable for the choice to take a religious oath to be removed.’

Existing religious oaths have, for hundreds of years, required Christian witnesses to hold the Bible and state: ‘I swear by almighty God that I shall tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.’

Followers of other faiths are given copies of their sacred texts with Muslims swearing on the Koran and Jews on the Old Testament, for instance. Those who choose instead to make an affirmation are required to ‘solemnly, sincerely and truly declare and affirm’ the truth of their evidence.

Under Mr Abrahams’ proposal,  the holy books would be removed and the oath would read: ‘I promise very sincerely to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth and I understand that if I fail to do so I will be committing an offence for which I will be punished and may be sent to prison.’

The plan will be debated at the agm of the Magistrates’ Association, representing 23,000 lay judges, in Cardiff on October 19. A MoJ spokesman said: ‘We have no plans to change the arrangements for swearing an oath or making an affirmation in court, which have worked well for many years and still do.’ source – Daily Mail UK

  • What would you expect? It happened a long time ago in the good old USSA. It is a miracle these days to find churches that still honor the KJV.

    PS: Have followed Dr. Ruckman’s fight for years.

    • It has been my distinct honor to have played the piano for altar calls at the end of the worship service where Dr.Ruckman was preaching and giving the invitation. He is a great man of God and an awesome bible teacher.

  • I look for that to happen here. Truth, who needs that, and who needs the Bible for it. I DO I DO!! Who wrote the original Laws anyway.

  • “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.”

    They prefer to dump on God in order not to offend man.
    Holy cow!!

    • They know what they are doing, they know better, they have chosen their side, let them burn!

    • @C.A. Oh, I beg to differ with you! They know exactly what they are doing. The are in with the Illuminati and that has been their plan for centuries!! They have been trying to destroy Gods true word since it came out. 1,000’s have been martyred for it through the ages!!!! 🙁

  • Any man that confesses not that Jesus is the Christ is the Antichrist which was and is and is to come. You poeple cannot hide from him that sits on the throne. He is the son of GOD ALMIGHTY and knows all things. You will cry for the rocks and mountians to fall on you and hide you from his face.

  • Since welcoming Islamist into their country (England), Jihadist has infiltrated into the governing segment of England’s government. It appears the christian would be force to hide when a law is made that would ban their existence . Gods’ book the Bible, says that would happen near the end of the world and the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

    • Hi Fishing nice to see you. yes and coming here. they wouldn’t want to insult anyone. Anyone that is but a Christian. Games on for us! Blessings to you in His Name,

  • so now everything sacred takes yet another slap but honestly God still has the last word God wins still

  • Things are coming to fruition just like God’s Word says. Too much unbelief; and, so sad.
    As Christians, we need, now, more than ever to stand TOGETHER and spread the Word. There might come a day when the enemy will try and shut us up, but until then, let’s do our best!

    • They already are fighting to remove crosses, navitity scenes, commandments and persecuting Christians on job sites, neighborhoods, etc. Extremely difficult to find “real” church. I keep thinking of scripture that says, “They (enemy) may know what you are going to do, but they don’t know what I’m going to do.”

  • It just means that Jesus IS coming soon. Wake up all, it’s time to get the oil lamps a-burning to be ready. Yay.

  • England has NEVER been a “Christian” nation! It is as pagan as all the others. Why should a pagan who doesn’t even belive in the Word of God place their hands on a book in which they do not believe its contents, and swear! The Word of God says NOT to swear by anything. Actually, by swearing on the Bible, this contradicts the very Word of God! I have asked Jesus Christ to forgive me for everytime I have done this act or swore on anything! Our Heavenly Father says NOT to do it! Our Yes must be a yes, and our no must be a no! Simple as that!

  • Whilst the reasons for doing this will of course be anti-christ, it is never-the-less proper. Consider this. Is it right that unbelievers be asked to swear an oath on a book they don’t believe in? Or, how about this? How about if you do believe this book, as I do, which says you must not swear an oath? I myself could never do it. I would refuse on the grounds that this book which I cherish tells me not to, and that my yes be yes and my no be no. I would probably be held in contempt of the court for refusing to swear the oath.

  • Look, don’t pretend that the United Kingdom was established as a Christian nation. Until Christianity was brought to the United Kingdom, it was the same as the rest of Europe: Pagan. If it were a Christian nation then no other religion would be allowed there. The United States is also a Pagan nation for that very same reason. So, let’s stop pretending that things are something they’re not. Don’t like reading the truth about the history of the western nations? Oh well….deal with it.


    • You better get use to it , Sister. It’s only going to get worse!

      • oh stop Ron there is no reason they make their rules then exclude some. If you read the answer on Mafia movies there is an agenda on here and not the first time. We are not talking about the last days and behavior in this case. You guys have Very Blessed Weed in Jesus Name

        • You can’t expect NTEB to monitor 24/ 7, Teresa. Patience!

          • yes I do they put up w the F word during the New Age folks awhile ago, they are one sided on more than one issue. Ok just be more upfront about it. The F and the C are not acceptable nor should people who are vile in words against Lord and you should be asking for the same as me. No one will miss me here but when I go, I will miss the Scripture and conversation, but something is not right here.

          • You’re absolutely right, teresa! If they can’t filter 24/7, hold the comments made when they are not watching, and don’t allow them to post until they can read through ALL of them! That post is DISGUSTING!! I am shocked that it got through!
            They just gave us a long list of rules, which they are not following!

  • I don’t see the attraction of Islam? A Holy Book full of jitters, and a copy-cat one at that. Anyone that is unable to distinguish the real from the imitation, I guess deserves the imitation. To discard the King James Bible to appease Islamic sensibilities is perfectly insane.

  • Keep praying to your MOON god!

  • Anybody ready to go home yet, to heaven?

    • Why, sure I’m ready, when we going?

      • hurry up and get to Vine and Flower! 🙂 Bus loaded caravan on the move 🙂

    • no mom has to go first no argument. 🙂

  • Well they are living in this land of Christian nation, If they want to remain there they should fallow the Christian ways or go back to their original land where they belong, simple. Cause when we go to their Lands we also Honor their ways and Traditions. Not the other way around. Isn’t it Fair enough.

    • What is fair and right does not mean we will keep those traditions. We need to be looking for God’s traditions not man’s traditions.

    • Corazon, oh wouldn’t that be nice but we were Political Correct before they came. Blessings to you

  • Ron or Teresa: was not awhile back the Supreme Court ruled that the F & S words, was constitiutional ok, to use those words in public, now?

    • I don’t know what you are speaking of, but notice before we cut tv more of it on shows, day and night, commercials, all sexual connotations don’t miss it but still stuff on computer I wish I could KILL! News now swears, if you think about it like being back in 79-80s? When I see those movies I used to like they show skin on women, cuss, YIKES! But we are back there NO?

  • James 5:12
    But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.


    • Britian will join the EU, soon!

      • Ummm….Britain joined the EU in 1973! It is soon to hold a referendum to get out – your newspapers are slightly out of date.. 🙂

        • @Bill,,,,LOL I was thinking that, but didn’t want to say it in case I was wrong! Thanks for bringing that out Bill!!! LOL 🙂

          • please elaborate ,good to see you, Blessings in His Name

  • I have a King, and His name is Jesus. He is the King of the Jews!
    Mat 2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
    Mat 2:2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.

  • Geo

    This is indeed another fruit of a progressivily rotten root. Though, actually, Christ plainly told us during His sermon on the mount not to swear at all or by anything – “But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God’s throne:” -Matthew.
    Further, “But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil”. -Matthew 5:37
    Oh that our nations leaders believed and practised this eternal advise.

  • Well the “church” has been trying hard to replace and do away with the King James Bible! Why should we expect any less of the world and the governments??? This isn’t a big shock to me. I knew this was coming!! “Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:” “-(

  • In reply to #17. Years ago I was selected as a Juror and we all took the oaths to and one juror exempted himself and took a “secular” oath. So there is a way out for those who are agnostic or atheists already.

    • I just read the other day a person who does not vote and he said many times he uses his affirmation of truth and no one ever had a problem w it. I cant imagine myself not putting my hand over my heart for the Anthem or a Flag salute tho guess I am to old.

  • I need to get myself out to America before this country turns into another Islamic state.

    How can they throw away the bible that this great nation was founded on, King James VI would be turning in his grave with all he accomplished for this small Island. They’ve been trying to destroy his reign and name ever since the Roman papacy have had full control! English people are standing up for the destruction of their own country instead of against it like Americans would, it’s insane.
