Fundamentalists create ‘1611 Project’ to counter Reformed theology


U.S. - Fundamental Baptists have created the "1611 Project" to combat the growing movement of Reformed Baptists.

Fundamentalists have traditionally promoted the King James Version of the Bible, which originated in 1611, as being the sole authorized English translation of the Holy Bible. As Reformed theology has begun to trend among younger crowds, they have brought with them an acceptance of other translations, namely the English Standard Version.

"We couldn't stand for it any longer," explained Larry Perry, Pastor of Faith Baptist Church in Westphalia, Indiana. "People these days just go all willy-nilly with their Bible translations. They have no respect for the inspired Word of God - the King James 1611! So we created the 1611 Project to introduce a new generation to the Bible the way God intended them to read it, in Old English."

The reeducation project is set to release soon on a straight-to-VHS format. Utilizing state of the art technology, like PowerPoint, the 1611 Project is sure to impress people already convinced of the inerrancy of the King James Bible.

Churches and Christian schools that participate in the project will receive the documentary series featuring white men in suits explaining the exhilarating history of the King James Bible. The kit will also contain lapel pins with sayings like "It was good enough for Paul. It's good enough for me!" and bumper stickers with Jesus fishes eating fish with legs.

When asked for comment at a local cigar shop, several Reformed pastors claimed through thick beards to never have heard of the project.
