Where are James White's "inspired Scriptures"?

Notice the following statements from James White's statement of faith:

"We believe the Bible to be the written revelation of God, complete and sufficient in all respects. We believe the Scriptures to be “God-breathed” and therefore fully authoritative in and of themselves; they rely for their authority upon no church, council, or creed, but are authoritative simply because they are the Word of God. The Scriptures, as they embody the very speaking of God, partake of His authority, His power."

"We believe that Christ is coming again to judge the living and the dead. This promise is found throughout the inspired Scriptures."

Questions for James White...

1.) You say "the Bible is...complete". Which Bible? You say it is not the KJB, so which is it? Is it in English? Is it in Greek? The word "Bible" means book, so I assume I can get a copy of it in one volume?

2.) You say "We believe the Scriptures to be “God-breathed”" Which Scriptures? What specifically are you referring to? We know it isn't the KJB, so what is it?

3.) How come you say the Scriptures are "fully authoritative in and of themselves", but then criticise people for believing that the King James Bible is fully authoritative? In fact, you refer to us as a "cult".

4.) You say the Scriptures "rely for their authority upon no church" but then you use the quotes and documents of the so called "church fathers" to determine whether or not parts of the Bible are inspired or not. 

5.) You say "This promise is found throughout the inspired Scriptures." What inspired Scriptures have you read? What version, document, or manuscript are they found in?

But James White does not believe the Bible is wholly authoritative, he does not believe in any Bible in any language.
