Without a doubt this is a delicate and sensitive issue in churches today, because the Bible is:
These corrupted 'bibles,' which all adopt as their authority a corrupted Greek text which contains over 6,000 deletions and substitutions from the original inspired text, include the NIV [New International Version,] NAS [New American Standard Version,] NKJ [New King James Version,] and many others. It has become clear that God has preserved His infallible and inerrant Word only in the Authorised King James Bible.
If you doubt the truth of this statement, consider the following quote from Dr. Frank Logsdon, the theologian and language scholar who led the translation of the New American Standard Version [NAS:]
"I must, under God, renounce every attachment to the New American Standard Version. I’m afraid I’m in trouble with the Lord...We laid the groundwork; I wrote the format; I helped interview some of the translators; I wrote the preface...I’m in trouble; I can’t refute these arguments; it’s wrong, frighteningly wrong, and what am I going to do about it?
"When questions began to reach me at first, I was quite offended...I used to laugh with others...However, in attempting to answer, I began to sense that something was not right with the New American Standard Version. I can no longer ignore these criticisms I am hearing and I can’t refute them...the deletions are absolutely frightening...there are so many...Are we so naïve that we do not suspect satanic deception in all of this?
"Upon investigation, I wrote my very dear friend, Mr. Lockman, explaining that I was forced to renounce all attachment to the NASV. The product is grievous to my heart and helps to complicate matters in these already troublous times...I don’t want anything to do with it. The finest leaders that we have today...haven’t gone into it [corrupted Greek test,] just as I hadn’t gone into it...that’s how easily one can be deceived...
"[Y]ou can say the Authorized Version [KJV] is absolutely correct. How correct? 100% correct!...I believe the Spirit of God led the translators of the Authorized Version. If you must stand against everyone else, stand..."
Some readers object to the KJV's use of archaic words like thee, thou, thine, and ye. However, these words were used [even after they had begun to cease from English conversational use,] to convey the singularity or plurality of the person[s] addressed. This is conveyed in the Greek and Hebrew, but is not possible using only the common English pronouns "you" or "your". When Jesus said to the Pharisees in John 8:44, "ye are of your father the devil" we know from the KJV that he was speaking to the entire group, not just one individual. Similarly, in the KJV the singular terms the and thou means 'you alone,' and thine means 'yours alone [for Thine is the kingdom" – Matt. 6:13.] These distinctions from the original manuscripts are lost in the new perversions. The few problems with other archaic terms used in the KJV such as suffer [permit,] prevent [precede,] etc, can be easily overcome with a brief education in the definitions and usage of these terms.
NIV, NAS, RSV, NLT - Add "through Jesus Christ our Lord" after "God our Saviour." Shifts the meaning of "God our Saviour" from the Son to the Father.
"And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world." – 1 John 4:14 KJV
Note the spelling of 'Saviour' in the King James is changed to 'Savior' in the perversions. This also degrades the deity of Christ, since the only meaning of the word 'Saviour' with a capital 's' in the old English language is God, or Jesus. The spelling without the capital and deleting the letter 'u' is the common savior, such as firemen, life guards, etc. These very subtle changes are overlooked by most, but the reasons for them screams out with a loud voice.
11. "For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
12. "So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God."
[Note: the passage clearly teaches that Christ is God!]
NIV, NAS, RSV, NLT – change 'Christ' to 'God' in v. 10.
NOTE: This corruption also denies the truth of Jesus' statement in John 5:22 that all judgment has been committed unto Him. ["For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:"] This is a very strange oversight by the authors of the perversions, since they all left that statement in John intact for the most part. This of course creates a contradiction, which does not exist in the King James Bible. There is a similar change at Rev. 20:12.
NIV, NAS, NLT, RSV – Delete "I am the Alpha and Omega, the first and the last" from v. 11.
This verse shows that the New Testament 'Day of Christ' is the Old Testament 'Day of the Lord,' that Christ is the Lord of the Old Testament.
NIV, NAS, RSV, NLT – change 'Christ' to 'the Lord.'
NAS, NIV, RSV - change 'Christ' to 'the Lord' – another denial that Jesus is Jehovah of the Old Testament.
NAS, NIV, NLT, RSV – change 'Lord God' to 'Christ as Lord.'
Is this the mother of 'Lordship Salvation?' Your call.
NIV, RSV, NLT – all change 'from everlasting' to 'from ancient times.' [Or similar wording,] denying Christ's eternal existence.
NIV, NAS, NLT, NKJ, RSV – ALL change 'THE LORD' to 'Lord.' This simple little deletion of a tiny little word subtly denies the deity of Christ again.
The point being made here is that a direct statement denying Christ's divinity would cause too much consternation among well versed Bible readers. The well-placed changes leave room for interpretations that fit the agenda of the antichrist. The time worn adage that these 'new translations' make the Bible easier to understand just does not hold water. All these things do is create doubt and dissention, which are wiles of Satan.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS - Change Christ, the Son of the living God to Holy One of God.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS - change Son of God to Son of Man.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS - all change Son to Servant.
NOTE: If we are "no more a servant, but a son", how much more is Jesus, the eternal Son of God, a son and not a servant?
NIV, RSV, NKJ, NLT, NAS - all change Servant to Slave. They also delete the name Christ, either changing it to God or just deleting that entire portion of the passage.
The word slave appears in the entire Bible only one time in Jeremiah 2:14:
The plural slaves appears only once in Revelation 18:13: "And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men." The perversions could only be acting to replace servant with that word. See what happens when an effort is made to make the Word of God conform to the satanic heart of lost men?
NIV, RSV, NKJ,NLT, NAS - All change holy child to holy servant in both verses.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS - All delete verse 37, although some try to cover this by making totally false footnote statements about it not being in the Majority Text. If not in the Majority [Received] Text, it would NOT appear in the King James Bible!
NOTE: This deletion also denies the apostolic [Baptist] doctrine of Believer's Baptism, requiring that a person believe the Gospel prior to being baptized. This makes the Bible more palatable to Catholics and Protestants, both of which practice infant baptism.
NIV, RSV, NKJ, NLT, NAS - All either change Joseph and his mother to his mother and father, or make annotations that it is improper .translation. NOTE: This corruption denies the virgin birth of Christ, which means Christ's deity. Jesus could not be both the son of God and the son of Joseph.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS - All change Joseph and his mother to his parents. Of course, there are other variations in the verses. After all, the perversions are dealing with copyright laws, and all of them are jealous of their cash cows.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS - All delete Of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Some examples of the denial of Jesus as the Christ follow:
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS - All delete the Christ. NKJ leaves the word, but suggests it may not be properly used there! ALL of the perversions, including the 21st Century NKJ, all delete the letter 'u' from Saviour. This sole form of that particular word did not come into common usage for some years AFTER the King James Bible was translated.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS - All delete even Christ. NKJ includes the word with a footnote again casting doubt on whether or not the translators had a clue as to the truth.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS - All delete the former Christ and retain the latter. NLT changes the second Christ to Messiah. NKJ includes both, but again with a footnote on the first one that leaves the reader in doubt.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS - All delete according to the flesh, and change Christ to One of his descendants. NLT goes even further to identify David as the seed of the Messiah, not God.
See other deletions of Christ in the NIV at: Acts 15:11, 16:31, 20:21, Romans 1:16, 16:20, 16:24 [entire verse deleted from NIV,] 1 Corinthians 5:4, 9:1,18. 16:22-23, 2 Corinthians 11:31, Galatians 3:17, 4:7 [virtually all the perversions, including NKJ, change the word servant to slave. It is as if there were no servants in biblical times that were not free men who worked in a service. Today's waiters, bellhops, barbers, and a myriad of other service professions would be considered in slavery if the same connotation applied in this century! All servants are NOT SLAVES! 1 Thessalonians 3:11, 2 Thessalonians 1:8, Hebrews 3:1, 1 John 1:7, Revelation 1:9, 12:17 et al.
NOTE: New-Agers teach that Christ-consciousness was attained by Jesus, but can also be attained by others, and that another Christ is coming.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS - All remove Lord. NKJ inserts it, but again with a footnote that puts the whole passage in question again.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS - all delete the Lord.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS - all change hell to the grave in v. 15 and change Lucifer to Morning Star in v. 12.
New Agers deny that Lucifer is Satan, deny the bodily resurrection of Christ, and teach that Isaiah 14 is about Jesus, not Lucifer. Both Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses teach that Jesus and Lucifer are brothers.
NIV: but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.
NLT: If a prophet does not acknowledge Jesus, that person is not from God. Such a person has the spirit of the Antichrist. You have heard that he is going to come in to the world, and he is already here.
RSV: and every spirit which does not confess Jesus is not of God. This is the spirit of antichrist, of which you heard that it was coming, and now it is in the world already.
NOTE: Because the new perversions deny that God [Christ] has come in the flesh [1 Timothy 3:16, Acts 2:30,] they have to revise the antichrist test! This blatant corruption alone shows that the new perversions are antichrist.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS - all delete without a cause - making it a sin to be angry. NKJ again uses the slick footnote and leaves you guessing just what is said.
Compare with Matthew 21:12 and John 2:15, where Jesus drove out the moneychangers. Some use this passage in the new perversions to argue that Jesus sinned by being angry in this instance.
Next we will check on the Denial that Jesus was worshipped, of Jesus’ role in Creation, that He ascended into heaven, and some of the heinous deletions that make denial of Christ’s doctrine seem logical when viewed through the deleted perversions. You will be amazed at the complex distortions that were made, not for the interest of forwarding the Gospel, but in the interest of protecting copyrights and the cash flow to the godless authors of perversity.
To ensure that the deity of Christ is placed in doubt, one of the most important things for the fathers of perversion is to carefully suggest is that He did not ascend into heaven. Two of the most critical passages are included below:
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS - All delete which is in heaven. NKJ and NLT both footnote to create confusion as to which is correct.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS, NWT - All delete because I go to the Father.
NIV, NLT, NAS, RSV, NWT - delete bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
NIV, NAS, NLT, RSV, NWT - delete to repentance
NIV, NAS, NLT, RSV, NWT - delete draweth nigh unto me with their mouth.
11. For the Son of Man is come to save that which was lost... Completely deleted from NIV, RSV, NLT, and NWT. Footnoted out of NKJ and NAS.
This passage is so brutally mutilated by all the perversions, that an entire page could be devoted to it. One thing common to all is the total deletion of and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.
NIV, NAS, NLT, RSV, and NWT - all delete ...and whatsoever is right, that shall ye receive.
NIV, NAS, NLT, RSV, and NWT - all delete for many be called, but few chosen.
NIV, NAS, NLT, RSV and NWT all delete "…as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things you do."
NIV, NLT, RSV, and NWT – all delete this entire verse. NAS and NKJ footnote it into irrelevance.
NIV, NAS, NLT, RSV and NWT – all delete "…nor tell it to any in the town."
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS, NWT - All delete ...for those that trust in riches.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NWT - All delete this verse entirely. NAS and NKJ footnote it to indicate the total lack of inspiration in the authors of their heresy.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NWT - All delete spoken of by Daniel the prophet.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NWT - All delete but by every word of God.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS, NWT - All delete and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS, NWT - All the perversions have mutilated this two verse passage a little differently, but the end result is to either delete and ignore, or to include and footnote out, the following: 55: delete ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. 56: delete For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them.
NIV, RSV, NAS, NWT - All delete on me except the NLT, which only changes the wording a bit. Without those two words, the new age perverts are free to insert whatever they think we should believe in to be saved.
NIV, NWT, RSV, NLT, NAS - All delete verse 7 completely and invent their own fixture in it’s place. NONE of them are worded identically. If God’s word is pure, true, and perfect, there is a problem here!
"He who speaks on his own does so to honor himself, but he who works for the honor of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him."
"He who speaks from himself seeks is own glory; but He who is seeking the glory of the One who sent Him, He is true, and there is no unrighteousness in Him."
NIV, RSV, NKJ NLT, NAS - All change JEHOVAH to the Lord.
NIV, RSV, NKJ, NLT, NAS - All change JEHOVAH to the Lord.
The same change may be seen at Gen. 22:14, Judges 6:24, Isaiah 12:2 and 26:4
NIV, RSV, NWT, NLT, NAS - change in you all to in all.
[Pagan pantheism, God is all and in all]
NOTE: If God is IN ALL, there is no need for anyone to get saved: Paul was talking to the believers in Ephesus, not to the world.
NIV, RSV, NWT, NLT, NAS, NKJ - All change unbelief to disobedience. Same change at Hebrews 3:18, 4:6,11; John 3:36.
NIV, RSV, NLT, NAS - change Son of God to Son of Man.
Perversions change strait or narrow to difficult way.
NIV, RSV, NWT, NLT, NAS - All delete for them that trust in riches.
But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.
But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ.
NIV, NAS, RSV - "In whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins."
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, the old has gone, the new has come."
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature, the old things have passed away; new things have come."
"One God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all."
"One God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all."
Perversions change are washed, sanctified, justified, to were.
Changes from are saved to have been saved. This leaves the door open to claim the possibility that salvation can be lost.
Colossians 2:10; 2:20 and 3:1,3
Perversions change be risen and are dead to have been raised and died.
1 Timothy 6:12
Change art called to were called.
2 Timothy 2:11
Change be dead to died
1 Peter 1:23
Change being born again to have been born again.
NIV, NAS, NKJ, RSV - "All change from gospel of Christ to gospel."
NIV, NAS, NKJ, RSV - "All change gospel of Christ to Christ."
NIV, NAS, RSV - "All change Christ to It. NKJ inserts Christ, but with their idiotic footnote that says it does not belong there."
"Both delete the entire verse. NKJ and NAS both claim it is not in the text of the majority, which of course if a flagrant lie."
NIV, NAS, RSV - "All delete quick and powerful and insert active"
and expects His children to tremble at his word [Isaiah 66:5.]
Despite all of Satan's efforts to destroy it, God has preserved His Word. The greatest group of Bible and language scholars ever assembled rejected the corrupt Alexandrine Text available to them, and following the traditional text which God preserved through the ages, produced the King James Version. In light of the Satanically inspired deletions and substitutions made in the new perversions, THERE IS NO EXCUSE for any Christian who has been presented with this information to continue using any of the new perversions of God's Holy Word, which has been preserved for us only in the Authorized King James Version.
