We're the KIng James translators Masons?

I heard somewhere that the translators comissioned by King James were Masons and Rosicrucians. Is this a credible idea?

No, it is just more slander and propaganda to discredit the KJV. Masons are anti-Christian (brotherhood of man, God the father of all men, any religious book is just as good as the Bible) and Rosicrucians deny the resurrection of Christ. If you study out what the KJV translators believed, you will realize that they did not believe this junk.

Let's see - this might help:

I can't remember if this is the whole book, or just part of it. But it is a good starting place.

The translators were a fairly good group of people. Some were Puritans. Others were leaders of the Church of England. I don't know of any unbiased historian that marks any of the men involved as being Masons.

If you have any book titles or web sites that make these claims, please post them so I can take a peek.

The people who make claims like that are the same kind of people who also claim that King James was a homosexual (Why then would he commission a Bible that was so condemning of that abomination). Just as has already been said, they are simply trying to discredit the Word of God.

Along these lines, I've also encountered those who claim that King James hated witches and that's the only reason there are condemnations against witches in the KJV. They claimed the original Scriptures didn't actually make statements against witches or witchcraft.

It would have been politically expedient for him. I'm not saying he was a homosexual, but many kings, emporers, and others have used religion when it was politically expedient for them to do so. Constantine is a good example of that.

Read his own writings - he had a testimony of salvation. Constantine was never anything more than a pagan - his own testimony of conversion was that he saw a dream or a vision that told him to conquer in the sign of the cross - that certainly is not a testimony of salvation.
