16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
According to 2 Timothy 3, all scripture is inspired by God and illustrates how he believes we should live a good, moral life. These verses are often used to encourage others to read the King James Bible, which The Devil’s Highlighter completely supports.
By using the term scripture, Paul could be referring to the Old Testament specifically or perhaps to the entirety of the King James Bible. Either way, all scripture can be used to determine what is right from what is wrong. This includes the support of rape, slavery, and genocide that are not only condoned but requested or even performed by God on several occasions. These verses lay the blame directly on God for all of the atrocities in the King James Bible.
