"As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the Lord, from hence forth and forever....Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever....for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name....Thy word is true from the beginning....Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away....For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven....and the scripture cannot be broken." (Isa. 59:21; Psa. 12:7, 138:2, 119:160; Mark 13:31; Psa. 119:89; John 10:35 KJB)
"Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you....Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar....For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book....How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the Lord is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain." (Deut. 4:2; Prov. 30:6; Rev. 22:18-19; Jere. 8:8 KJB)
"God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man that he should repent; hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me....For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe." (Num. 23:19; Acts 27:25; I Thess. 2:13 KJB)
It is very sorrowful to see what the god of this world has done to "corrupt" God's holy word and our minds. (I say "our," because once I was led astray into thinking that these so-called new translations were the word of God like many of you. Also, because when one member of the body suffers, the whole body suffers.) Somehow Satan has deceived us into thinking that all Bible translations are good, that they all say the same thing, and that we do not have the infallible word of God today. These are all lies! If you are prayerfully honest with God and yourself, you will be able to see this through God's word and the Holy Spirit's witness. Please read, study, and be patient while prayerfully looking into this most important issue. Satan does not want you to know the truth, "for he is a liar, and the father of it." But be of good cheer brothers, for "greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world." You may think that the tone of voice this is written in is rather strong at points, but bear with it. I found for some it takes fear and strong words for them to hear, even to save them from a scorching fire (Jude 23; I Cor. 3:11-15 KJB).
First of all, let me show you one thing (out of many, might I add) that should grab your attention. Remember, "God is not a man, that he should lie." Let's look at Mark 1:2-3 (KJB). It is correct in God's holy Bible, that is the King James Bible of 1611, of course! Now look at it in your NIV, NRSV, NASV, NWT, or any of the other 200 plus translations (except the NKJV which is the least corrupt of all the corrupt versions. "Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump." (I Cor. 5:6 KJB) Did God really say, "the prophet Isaiah?" "Yea, hath God said." (Gen. 3:1 KJB) If he did, then God is a liar, because the prophets Malachi and Isaiah said what is in Mark 1:2-3 (KJB). I do not know about your God, but my God is perfect, he does not lie, and he would not have his servants put such trash in his Bible with his "signature" on it! (Who put it there, I wonder who?) The liars took "prophets" out and added "Isaiah." "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." (John 8:44 KJB) Now keep in mind warnings were written long before the New Testament was in a manuscript. Even so, "Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar." If you compare I Chronicles 20:5 (KJB) with II Samuel 21:19 (KJB) in those curious books you will find a contradiction and a lie (look it up). "God is not a man, that he should lie...hath he said, and shall he not do it?"
God, (Remember him, author of the Book?) magnifies his words even above his name, which is "exalted above all blessing and praise." (Psa. 138:2; Neh. 9:5 KJB) Can you imagine that? Do you realize how important God's word is to him. God Almighty, Creator of everything, magnifies his words even above his very name. That is really magnified brother! Even above the name that is above all names to which every knee shall bow and every tongue confess. Above King of kings, above Lord of lords, even above God. Even so, above Lord Jesus Christ! If you just want to brush this issue off like it is no big deal your nuts and that is the only thing your going to be able to plea at the judgment seat is insanity. (For the record, Psalm 138:2 is correct in the KJB of 1611.) Wonder why the liars would want to mess with that!
Now since God exalts his word even above the name that is above all names, even the Lord Jesus Christ, who are we to question him? Even Paul is picky, yes picky, about one letter in Galatians 3:16 (KJB). (Look it up!) Strange, is it not? God said he would preserve his Book pure and forever for us, exalting it even above his own holy name. Paul is picky about a "silly" little "s" and a defender of the Gospel. And we, we sit back fat and happy questioning God Almighty himself about His capability of doing what he said he would do! I take that back, it's not strange, we have got to be completely out of our minds: gone nuts, over the deep end, off to the ozone layer somewhere, ad infinity! Sometimes I wonder if we forgot who GOD IS and who we are not! That surely is not "correctors" of his word or readers and promoters of something that pretends to be his word! We can be sure that our sins shall find us out! So, in case if you do not think that we are in sin or that God will not do what he said he would do, let's go to the Bible.
Let's see what happened to King Jehoiakim, the succession to the throne, Jerusalem, and Israel just because he messed with the word of God! In short, King Jehoiakim lost his life, no more of his seed would sit on the throne of David, Jerusalem was destroyed, and the Jews were carried off into captivity by King Nebuchadnezzar. It is not a big deal to mess with God's word, huh? (Look it up: Jere. 36:1-32; 22:18-19, 25; 23:30; II Chron. 36:-7,18-21. KJB) Study the times that corrupt line of manuscripts and "Bibles" were being used. You will find that the Dark Ages and wickedness prevailed during the times of the corrupt "Bibles" just as you see it all over the world today. Nations rise and fall according to what translation of the Bible is being used! Do not believe me if you wish, but at least have enough sense to check it out for yourself. God is very clear about how he feels about his word and what he promises about it -- both blessing and curse! The prophet Jeremiah got the blessing of more words added by God for believing and being obedient to him, and his life was spared (Deut. 4:2-3 KJB). How about you? (Deut. 30:1-20; Josh. 24:15 KJB) Notice that God preserved his words even after they were destroyed for a brief period and then added more to them! I believe that more understanding of the Scripture is "added" to us when we read and study the KJB. It is his word the way he gave it to us and does not have pieces cut out of it by "Jehoiakims." The twentieth century "Jehoiakims," better known as the Alexandrian Cult, cut up God's Holy word, no ifs, ands, or buts about it! The "new translations" are not God's infallible word and they belong in Satan's fire, that is to say hell fire! "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing." (II Cor. 6:17 KJB)
Let's look at some more recent cases for "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever." (Heb. 13:8 KJB) Gail Riplinger, in her book, NEW AGE BIBLE VERSIONS, points out where five Bible corrupters lost their voice either during or after their work was complete. They are: Kenneth Taylor - Living Bible, Philip Schaff - New American Standard Version, S.P. Tregelles - New Greek Text, Westcott - Westcott and Hort Greek Text, and J.B. Phillips - The New Testament in Modern English. If that is not enough for you, how about in 1995 during a Bible debate when Dr. Don Wilkins (new version corrupter) lost his voice. He was asked by John Ankerberg (of The John Ankerberg Show) if it were true about the five men in Gail's book losing their voice. Right at that point was when Dr. Wilkins lost his voice for about ten minutes. (BBB Nov. 1995, pg. 14) (Read these to see what the Bible says about losing the ability to speak: Luke 1:20,11:14; Psa. 12:3, 31:18; Prov. 10:31! KJB) Evil spirits can cause lose of voice! (Matt. 9:32-33 KJB)
Martin Luther rejected the Catholic "Bible" and the corrupt manuscripts that it was translated from. He used the pure line of manuscripts to translate the Bible into German. This pure line of manuscripts is the same source that the King James Bible of 1611 comes from. These two Bibles have each won more souls to the Lord than all other "Bibles" put together, "For the tree is known by his fruit." (Matt. 12:33 KJB) Going even into the trunk of the bad tree we find four corrupt manuscripts that all "new translations" are taken from as a rule of thumb. (They go away from these at times though when trying to cover up their lies, attack the Deity of Christ, try to get rid of the truth in the KJB, some times for no logical reason at all, and other heretical evils.) The main four are: Codecies B, Aleph, D, and L. Dean John W. Burgon, one of the greatest scholars that ever lived, is cited by Dr. David O. Fuller in WHICH BIBLE?.
Dean Burgon wrote, "I insist and am prepared to prove [which he did] that the text of these two Codexes (B and Aleph) is very nearly the foulest in existence," (Pp. 126-127) and "That they exhibit fabricated texts is demonstrable....B and Aleph are covered all over with blots -- Aleph even more than B....We suspect that these two manuscripts are indebted for their preservation, SOLELY TO THEIR ASCERTAINED EVIL CHARACTER." (Pg. 93, 128) He goes further in saying, "No amount of honest copying -- persevered in for any number of centuries -- could by possibility have resulted in two such documents." (Pg. 93) Burgon also said, "By far the most depraved text is that exhibited by CODEX D." (Pg. 93) "Strange as it may appear, it is undeniably true, that the whole of the controversy may be reduced to the following narrow issue: Does the truth of the text of Scripture dwell with the vast multitude of copies, uncial and cursive, concerning which nothing is more remarkable than the marvelous agreement which subsists between them? [In reference to the Text Received which the KJB was taken from.] Or is it rather to be supposed that the truth abides exclusively with a very little handful of manuscripts, which at once differ from the great bulk of witnesses, and - strange to say - also amongst themselves [Codexes B, Aleph, D, and L.] ." (pg. 124, 173) "Here as you must see B and Aleph in faltering tones and with an insignificant following are met by an array of authorities which is triumphantly superior, not only in antiquity, but in number, variety, and continuity." (pg. 127)
Simply said, the "new translations" now reject over 6000 manuscripts that miraculously agree with each other over 90 percent of the time. Quite a few of the manuscripts that were used for the KJB ARE OLDER INDEED than the so-called "older and more reliable" manuscripts. When you hear "older and more reliable" in reference to the manuscripts that the "new versions" are taken from know that IT IS A LIE. The "more reliable" part is a flat out lie which you saw above. The "older" part is extremely deceiving. Between God and Satan, which one would you say is deceiving? (Heb. 6:18; II Tim. 2:13; Gen. 3:1 KJB) The deceitful part is because they are the oldest codexes, but NOT the oldest manuscripts! A codex is a book of manuscripts for a brief definition. The corrupt "Bibles", (NKJV, NIV, NASB, etc.) use basically four of the most corrupt Catholic manuscripts ever produced that the Protestants rejected during the Reformation. They attack the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ in over 200 places, they leave whole verses out, words are missing, and they add words! That's not all, they do not have any manuscript evidence for this whatsoever in quite a few places! They also messed up the cross reference words that the holy Spirit put there so we could compare Scripture with Scripture as we are commanded to do (John 6:63; I Cor. 2:13 KJB)!
Those were the same manuscripts that William Tyndale rejected when he almost completed the first English Bible from the good manuscripts. What happened to him for trying to get the infallible word of God to us in English? He was burned to death at the stake August 6, 1536 by the Catholics for "heresy." During his great sacrifices and persecutions and before his death he said to a learned scholar, [who thought the Pope's word was infallible] "If God spare my life, ere many years, I will cause a boy that driveth a plough shall know more of the Scripture than thou doest." Tyndale knew what he was translating and got burnt at the stake for it! And we still want to study and support what he rejected! Why do we insist on going back into blindness! Could it be because you believe that God did not keep his promise, even so,"...the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them that believe not," because "...ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not." (II Cor. 4:4; John 5:38 KJB)
Why would we want to be part of a Catholic book that helped keep Christians in darkness for over 1000 years, that God obviously did not honor? It doesn't make sense to me. I have been told if something doesn't make sense, you can bet there is money involved! Now that makes sense. In II Peter 2:3 (KJB) we learn that "they" shall make money off us through false words. They corrupted that verse; I wonder why? Perhaps they know that their words are not true and therefore had to take out Romans 13:9, "Thou shalt not bear false witness." Where will they and their supporters hide? (Psa. 139:7-9; Jere. 23:24 KJB) "Ye have sinned against the Lord: and be sure your sin will find you out." (Num. 32:23 KJB)
Why wouldn't you want to be part of a Bible that over two million beloved brothers and sisters were so unmercifully martyred (burnt at the stake to death, fed to lions, etc.) so that we could have God's perfect and pure infallible word today? It reminds me of the attitude and unbelief of the ones in II Peter 3:4 (KJB)! Where is the promise of his infallible word? For since the fathers died and the originals got lost all things continue without God keeping His promises to preserve His word for us! As far as I am concerned you can either do like the common people and receive him and His word gladly, (Mark 12:37 KJB) or you can take your loses for not believing God, at his will of course (II Cor. 11:1-19 KJB)! Look them up! You can always study those watered down books against God's will and continue to "lean unto your own understanding." (Prov. 3:5 KJB) Although if you read the corrupt translations, you will not find the command to study in II Timothy 2:15 - you guessed it - they took it out. Guess they did not want to "be found a liar." (Prov. 30:6; Mark 1:2-3 KJB) That is not counting over 6000 other places where they departed from the FINAL AUTHORITY. (Think about that one for a little while -- what is your final authority?) "God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it?"
"Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump," even nations? God says the nations are as a drop in the bucket to him - and man, what then is one man to him? Is there not such a thing as sin unto death? (I John 5:16; Rom. 11:20-22 KJB) If it were not for his ever loving kindness and great mercies, and perhaps some prayers going up from some God fearing Bible believing Christians and his missionaries, who knows where we would be, but God? Who are we to tempt God? The "new translations" are most definitely leavened and watered down. Are you exempt from this? If so, by who's authority? Do you know where all 6000 of the changes were made so you can correct them, read around them, mark them out, put words and verses back in, etc.? I might be talking foolish to you, but am I? Who is foolish? Someone who calls and accepts the "new translations" as the word of God and then does not even believe God can keep a simple promise? Hello? Maybe if you hear it enough times, so that you hear it, you will believe it. "God is not a man, that he should lie."
I do not know about you brother, but I do not want to stand at the judgment seat of Christ and be told that I believed God Almighty was a liar! Did he, or did he not say in a number of places that he would preserve his word perfect and pure for us forever? Did he, or did he not give us an example of what happened to people who messed with his word? Did he, or did he not give us an example in quite a few places over the past 2000 years of what happens to the world and to nations when someone messes with his word? Did he, or did he not give us fair warning in three places in the Bible not to mess with his word? Did he, or did he not say, "Come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing?"? Did he, or did he not let you know about the different translations? Guilty, guilty, guilty, guilty, guilty, guilty -- six counts, minimum! (Num. 32:23 KJB)
"Come now, and let us reason together." (Isa. 1:18-20 KJB) One of the weakest argument of unbelief I hear is that man had his hand in it, therefore we could not have God's infallible word! Are you going to believe the Lord God Almighty or some fool who does not really believe in the first place? "Yea, let God be true, but every man a liar." (Rom. 3:4 KJB) "God is not a man, that he should lie... hath he said, and shall he not do it?" or, "Yea, hath God said," it is your choice! Do you really think, even for a second, that God, creator of the heavens and earth, the everlasting holy one, the Almighty himself, that raised himself from the dead, would have any problem whatsoever preserving His word for us? Did he did say he would do it, or did he not? We are talking about God Almighty here, not mere man! (We know mere man can mess it up -- you have seen that, and there is plenty to see if you want; references to follow!) You can put your trust in God, (Jere. 17:7 KJB) in man, (Jere. 17:5 KJB) or yourself. (Prov. 3:5-6 KJB) It's your choice! The evidence is overwhelming. God had no part in the "new translations" except to let it happen. Although the reasons that we know he had no part in it are many, I will refer you back to what you are familiar with already. Simple, Mark 1:2-3 (KJB) is a bold face lie and God is not a liar; at least my God is not! My God would not tell me he would preserve His words for me then not do it, leaving me here asking Pilate's question -- "What is truth?" Yours might. My God has not and will not! God said it, I believe it, and that's that! If you do not believe he can preserve his word, how can you believe he will raise you up or catch you up to meet him in the air?
What is that I hear? Do I hear some whispering something? Something I have heard before? Do I hear you saying that this kind of talk only brings division amongst the brethren? The division started a long, long time ago! (Gen. 3:1; Matt 10:34-39 KJB) I am not even trying to bring the brothers back as one. That is not my calling as far as I know. What I am trying to do is let those who really love the Lord, believe in him and what he says, and want to obey him -- know the truth -- so that they may live a life that may honour the Lord God Almighty instead of just doing whatever they feel like doing in the Kingdom of Hell! "Come out from among them, and be ye separate." Even today I heard, "But what about grace?" Brother, the Lord Jesus Christ's grace is not cheap, even so, he died for you and me. It is not all just about love and grace. It is a whole lot more than that, even starting with belief and obedience! Besides, if you love Jesus and believe in him, aren't you supposed to keep his words? If you do not keep them in a Book, how will you ever keep them in your heart?
I have heard the murmuring, "This is too radical, like the ones that believe Jesus is the only way! (By the way -- HE IS -- John 14:6, Acts 4:12 KJB) "And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money," [II Pet. 2:3] and over threw the tables" (John 2:14-16 KJB). (Eke. 13:1-2,14:9; Matt. 10:34, 12:34, 23:13, John 8:43-45 KJB) to name a few more -- read them, if you think the above is too radical!) Besides, what is so radical about believing God? I take that back, in this day and age, it is extremely radical, even to the far, far "LEFT" to believe, "Thus saith the Lord." (Isa. 63:3, 5; Luke 18:8 (KJB) -- that is Second Coming doctrine, but I believe it's appropriate -- read them!)
Do I hear another one saying, "But, you have to be fluent in Hebrew and Greek in order to get a true understanding of God's word." Book, chapter, and verse, please? I would not even begin to think that God only knew Hebrew and Greek. Now do I hear you saying, "But, you just do not understand." All Scripture is inspired; believeth thou this (II Tim. 3:16-17; II Pet. 1:20-21 KJB)? You say, "But, that was then." That was when they did not even have the Greek in a Bible yet. Guess you might as well throw away the whole Bible with that kind of reasoning. God inspired all Scripture that is worthy of being called Scripture. Besides, Hebrew and Greek have been "dead languages" for many centuries now. God gave His word so all the men "of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works." (II Tim. 3:17 KJB) If you are still arguing at this point, you probably just do not want to believe. God gave us a Bible, inspired and in English just as he has in many other languages.
Look at what the King James Bible (KJB) and the NIV (Notoriously Infamous Version) translators thought about what they translated. Dr. Miles Smith wrote for the translators in the preface of the AV1611: "And this is the word of God which we translate...If we be sons of the truth, we must consider what it speaketh, and trample upon our own credit, yea, and upon other men's too, if either be a hinderance to it....we have at length, through the good hand of the Lord upon us, brought the work to that pass that you see....He [God] removeth the scales from our eyes, the veil from our hearts, opening our wits that we may understand his word, enlarging our hearts, yea, correcting our affections, that we love it above gold and silver, yea, that we may love it to the end." (Translators to the Readers, Dr. Miles Smith, Pp. 13, 18, 23, 26; Bible Baptist Bookstore, Pensacola, FL) Now, in sharp contrast the NIV preface says: "The translators made their choice of readings according to the accepted principles of New Testament textual criticism. Footnotes call attention to places where there was uncertainty about what the original text was. The best current printed texts of the Greek New Testament were used....There is a sense in which the work of translation is never finished. This applies to all great literature and uniquely so to the Bible....LIKE ALL TRANSLATIONS OF THE BIBLE, MADE AS THEY ARE BY IMPERFECT MAN, THIS ONE UNDOUBTEDLY FALLS SHORT OF ITS GOALS." (Pp. xii-xiii) If you believe that last statement you need to either see a "shrink" or re-check your faith! (Actually, I am wrong. If you truly read that for what it says "all translations of the Bible," it is somewhat of a true statement. The KING JAMES is the BIBLE in English! All other books with similar and different readings are translations of it in a round about way.) In short, the KJB translators believe they translated the word of God. The NIV translators did not. The KJB translators believed the hand of God was on them and that he opened up their eyes, minds, and hearts so that all was clear and they understood. The NIV translators did not believe this at all and trusted their own understanding using the false theory of Wescott's and Hort's textual criticism, which we will look at now.
Dean Burgon proved their theory to be wrong. You already saw what he said about the text used by Wescott and Hort that are in essence the same ones that the NIV are translated from. Dr. Fuller states, "Burgon, therefore, was right in utterly rejecting the claims of...Westcott (1825-1901) and Hort (1828-92) Fuller cites Burgon, "Aware that the New Testament like no other book in its origin, its contents, its history, many critics of the present day nevertheless permit themselves to reason concerning its text...They make no allowances for the fact that influences of an entirely different kind...have made themselves felt in this department, and therefore that even those principles of textual criticism which in the case of profane authors are regarded as fundamental are often out of place here....That which distinguishes Sacred Science from every other Science which can be named is that it is Divine, and has to do with a Book which is inspired; that is, whose true Author is God... It is chiefly from inattention to this circumstance that misconception prevails in that department of Sacred Science known as 'Textual Criticism.'" (WHICH BIBLE?, Pp. 100-101, 173)
Here is a little bit on the NKJV because its corruption seems to deceive many into thinking that it is the word of God, a good translation, and a good KJB -- not so! At first glimpse, it appears to be in line with God's word. It is not God's word! It is corrupt! I will agree that it is the least corrupt of all the so-called new translations, but it most definitely is not the infallible word of God Almighty! Check it out closely if you wish and be sure to notice all the lies in the footnotes. (Some of the following references are not be changed in all the NKJ versions.) Here are a few verses for you. Genesis 1:28, 9:1 (KJB) -- the fact is, something was here before Adam and Noah's flood! "Fill" is not "replenish." Something that is replenished was plenished before as in before the flood and Genesis 1:28 (KJB)! In Genesis 3:5 (KJB) is it "gods" or "God?" This is not only a lie, but it messes up cross references including Psalms 82 which lets us know that the gods were here in the past, present and future of Genesis 3:5 (KJB). They stripped my God of his Deity in Daniel 3:5 (KJB) and Acts 4:27 (KJB), in other places too. Is Joel 2:18 (KJB) past or future? It is future of course, but not in a NKJV. Wonder why they would want to "change" Romans 1:25 (KJB)? They certainly did not "exchange" it! Are they not "dishonest" when they change the word of God into a lie? They changed "renounced the hidden things of dishonesty" to "renounced the hidden things of shame." (II Cor. 4:2 KJB) I believe God has a great sense of humor. He allowed them to try to cover up their sin of corrupting his word and change it right into a sin that is probably their primary motive for making a "new" Bible anyway! In II Corinthians 2:17 (KJB) they do not "corrupt the word of God," but, "as so many, peddling the word of God." (They will "with feigned words make merchandise of you." (II Pet. 2:3 KJB) You got it. They changed it too! Wonder why they do not want you to "study" the word of God? They took it out in II Timothy 2:15 (KJB). My salvation is a finished work of my Lord Jesus Christ. Not in the NKJV though -- II Corinthians 2:15 (KJB) and other places says that I am "being saved," as in a continuing process! I am no longer "washed, sanctified, and justified" in the present, but must have lost it because it is in the past according to I Corinthians 6:11 (KJB). What about John 1:3 (KJB)? "All things were made through him [Lord Jesus]." (NKJV) In Colossians 1:16 of a NKJV it is "by Him." Obviously they are confused! (I Cor. 14:33 KJB) Come on guys, which is it "by" or "through?" (This is just another "all denomination version.") OK, that is enough of that nonsense. No use in spending more time on something that belongs on the dung pile -- it is not the word of God, nor a King James Bible!
Anyway, we see that the "new translations" are preaching another Gospel, because they were altered, that is, added to and taken away from, from Genesis to Revelation! "Yea, hath God said." I will now refer you to Galatians 1:6-9 (KJB): you guessed it, "Paul's" double curse! Even "an angel from heaven," that's something to think about there! Sorry Michael, sorry Gabriel, cannot go with it. I have the real thing right here in my hand -- the King James Bible of 1611, and besides Gabriel, you might have backslidden! Have you set yourself up for blessing or curse? What ever happened to obedience?
"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" (Rom. 10:17 KJB). If you do not have the whole word of God, and what you do have is corrupt, how then can you have the faith that God intended you to have? The Bible says, "And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free....If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed" (John 8:32,36 KJB). So, if you do not have Jesus' words, the truth, how can you be "free indeed?" Marvel not brothers, that Christians back slide often and nations fall when the infallible word of God is not being preached! Have you ever tried to follow along in a "Bible" while the pastor is reading out of a different one, or the pastor says it to you out of a few different translations. How about when he is reading some passages in sequence and does not read a verse that is in your Bible! Again, "God is not the author of confusion." (I Cor. 14:33 KJB)
Some would say that the KJB of 1611 has errors in it. "Yea, hath God said." No use to get into this with you except to say that there are no errors in God's Word. You see, God has blinded the minds of them because of their unbelief, (II Cor. 3:14 KJB) and perhaps "Paul's" curse, or maybe even Jeremiah 23:30! Plainly put, if you think you see an error in the infallible word of God and you believe it to be an error, then brother, you are deceived. Speaking of error, the revisions that the KJB had were corrections in spelling, corrections where there was an obvious mistake done by the printer, etc. (See Appendix A.) That is nothing though compared to the major corruption in the "new-versions." (See Appendix B.) So, make a choice, either put your trust in God, in man, or lean unto your own understanding. "AS for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." (Jos. 24:15 KJB) "But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived." (II Tim. 3:13 KJB).
Actually, if you think about it, there is a great troubling situation here. You see, if you believe that we do not have the infallible word of God, that is, he did not preserve it for us -- then what can you believe? If God cannot keep His words preserved like he said he would do, then how do you know he can and will preserve you forever! How do you know if Genesis 1:1 (KJB) is true? Then you get thinking some more and start to wonder if God wrote or said what the Bible says he did! (Uh -- oh! Look out!) Is there really even a God? Did man just make up all this stuff? My, my, my, what a predicament you can get in.
I went through a period of time when I was studying about ten hours a day from at least three translations. I had been taught in college that "older and more reliable manuscripts" were found, (which is a lie -- they are not older and they most definitely are not more reliable) but that was my reason for studying other than the KJB and also I just did not know any better. Anyway, I got to a point where I found that the "new translations" contradicted each other and that they also had contradictions within themselves. One day I mentally said, "God I believe in you, but I cannot believe these Bibles anymore." About two weeks later a friend I had not seen in quite awhile showed up where I was at, (a miracle in itself). We got on the topic of the different translations. I proceeded to tell him about the so-called older and more reliable manuscripts. This brother was patient in hearing me out and then proceeded to tell me a few things. There is one thing you do not say to a true Bible Believer, that is, tell him about the "older and more reliable" manuscripts and expect him to be silent about the truth! First he told me of God's promises to keep his word pure and preserved forever for us. Then he went on to tell me about the differences in manuscripts and gave me a book to read. Within a couple of days I became a Bible Believer and confessed my sin of reading and promoting the "new translations" as God's word. Then another miracle happened. God Almighty removed the scales from my eyes and the King James Bible of 1611, God's word in English, opened up to me. I was amazed and in tears of joy, giving praise to God in the most wonderful name of Jesus. What I once could not see, I could now see! Where I once thought there were contradictions in the KJB, mostly from listening to other people, I found that they were not contradictions at all! There are still areas that I do not have answers for, but that is OK, because I know that the real Bible is correct and in time God's time he will give me some answers. My job is to read and believe it, not question it or him! Once I took that attitude my whole life changed, ten fold for the better. God led me into "rightly dividing the word of truth" and I now see why there are so many heresies and different denominations around. I now know what promises belong to me and those that belong to others in different dispensations. I now understand why I would try to "claim" a promise, believe it with all my heart, and still fall -- it did not belong to me. Many other blessings have come to me from God since I have become a Bible Believer. They might not and probably would not have come to pass had I stayed in my sin of reading and promoting things that call themselves Bibles and are not. They are from "the synagogue of Satan," (Rev. 3:9 KJB) namely all translations that are not taken from the pure line of manuscripts. They are not God's infallible word. "Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you." (II Cor. 6:17 KJB) We have "him" (Heb. 4:13 KJB) in the King James Bible in English, the Heilige Schrift in German, (Martin Luther) and a variety of other Bibles in different languages throughout the world. They are producing the kind of fruit that will not be burned in the fire! (I Cor. 3:13-15 KJB) The B-I-B-L-E, yes that's the Book for me!
"It was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints....I am set for the defense of the gospel....For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock....Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron." (Jude 3; Phil. 1:17; Acts 20:29; I Tim. 4:1-2 KJB) One more time, "God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?....As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed 's seed, saith the Lord, from henceforth and for ever....Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away....and the scripture cannot be broken....Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me."
In closing, no matter what your decision might be, I wish you the best in your trials and journey, growing in the Lord Jesus Christ. If you are not saved the Bible says to, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and, thou shalt be saved....as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name." (Acts 16:31; John 1:12 KJB) I pray and hope you will come out from among the unclean thing, that is, those books that ye call Bibles and are not!
