comment Why is the KJV frequently said to be the “true” translation?
Among English speakers of the time, Protestants outnumber Catholics. I don't know the figures for Douay Rheims publication, and I'll modify the answer if you can find me figures for Douay-Rheims v KJV.

comment Did Luther really condone Alchemy, or did he just not “get” it?
When I ask a question, I find that patronizing the people who are trying to answer it for you isn't helpful.

comment Did Luther really condone Alchemy, or did he just not “get” it?
He speaks of a specific allegory, to the resurrection. And the allegory is found in a perfectly natural (and biblical) process - refinement by fire. Also remember that because something is "supernatural" or "spiritual" that does not make it "occult". In Luther's time there was not such a sharp distinction between studying the natural world and the supernatural world.

@Andrew While some alchemists at the time practised occultism, many were simply investigating the natural world with the tools they had available.The things Luther specifically mentions are scientific pursuits: "melting metals, in decocting preparing, extracting, and distilling herbs, roots".

comment Is the Spiritual Baptist, water baptism recognized in Christianity?
probably worth noting that the largest Spiritual baptist conference identifies as Trinitarian, and has a statement of faith that reads very much like a Conservative Evangelical one

comment What does “bowels of mercies” mean?
A look at a more modern translation (i.e. one less than 300 years old) would help here.

comment What does the “reformed and recovered Christian fundamentalist” mean?
Because it's really just about the meaning of words. If Hitchens had written "Reformed and recovering Hindu" the answer would have been the same.
