Commentary

Matthew 1:25, And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.

Matthew 1:25 NASB, and kept her a virgin until she gave birth to a Son; and he called His name Jesus.

("firstborn" is out. )

We are scarcely into the N.T. proper, when Satan, willing to show the Catholics a pleasure, gives room for the false R.C. doctrine of Mary's perpetual virginity.

Matthew 4:12, Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee;

Matthew 4:12 NASB, Now when He heard that John had been taken into custody, He withdrew into Galilee;

The context of this verse is the passage concerning Jesus fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah 9:1-2.

Matthew 4:18, And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

Matthew 4:18 NASB, And walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen.

Jesus is conspicuously absent from many passages of the New Testament. In this context He is organizing His church.

Matthew 4:23, And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

Matthew 4:23 RSV, And he went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every infirmity among the people.

Jesus is omitted yet again. Codex B is responsible for this omission. The vast majority of manuscripts contain the name of Jesus.

Matthew 5:22, But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

Matthew 5:22 NIV, But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, "Raca," is answerable to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, "You fool!" will be in danger of the fire of hell.

("without a cause" is out.)

Cf. Mark 3:5, And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

Jesus got angry, is He in danger of being judged as a sinner? According to the NIV Jesus is guilty of sin.

Matthew 5:27, Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:

Matthew 5:27 NIV, "You have heard that it was said, "You shall not commit adultery."

This command is as foundational as the family.

Matthew 5:44, But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Matthew 5:44 NIV, But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,

(Most of this verse is gone. Sixteen English words are thrown into the Alexandrian dumpster!)

Here is a verse that one can apply to the life to keep the heart and soul from bitterness.

It is a shame that this verse was not found in Catholic bibles while they were murdering millions Christians and Jews..

Matthew 6:1, Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.

Matthew 6:1 NIV, "Be careful not to do your "acts of righteousness" before men, to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

("alms" is changed.)

These are two different things. We are unprofitable servants and rarely fulfill that which God commands us. Christians often fall short. (Luke 17:10)

Matthew 6:13, And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Matthew 6:13 NASB, "And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. [For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.]"

This is put in for effect: it is claimed by the Lockman Foundation that bracketed words are "probably not in the original writings." They need to check the original Greek!

Matthew 6:27, Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?

Matthew 6:27 NRSV, And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life?

Both can not be correct. There is a definite change in teaching here.

Matthew 6:33, But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Matthew 6:33 NIV, But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

There is a theme here as in Matt. 6:13. The kingdom and glory are coveted by the Roman Catholics and this is reflected in their bibles. Who gets the glory in the new versions? Which lifts up Jesus?

Matthew 8:29, And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?

Matthew 8:29 NIV, "What do you want with us, Son of God?" they shouted. "Have you come here to torture us before the appointed time?"

("Jesus" is omitted.)

Jesus name is missing in many verses in the new versions. Jer.23:27 speaks of false prophets "which think to cause my people to forget my name"

Matthew 9:13, But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Matthew 9:13 NASB, "But go and learn what this means, "I desire compassion, and not sacrifice," for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners."

("of repentance" is out.)

How important is repentance? The first word out of the mouth of two preachers, at the beginning of their public ministry, was "Repent".(Matt. 3:2 & Mark 1:15)

Matthew 11:23, And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.

Matthew 11:23 NKJV, "And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be brought down to Hades; for if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.

("hell" is replaced by the ambiguous "Hades".[cf. NWT of the J.W.'s])

Updating the archaic English of the KJB, are we? If a preacher got up on a Sunday and preached a message on HADES he would have a hard time getting a response. If you preach to a man that he is going to Hell, he will get the message, Amen?

Matthew 12:6, But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.

Matthew 12:6 NASB, "But I say to you, that something greater than the temple is here.

Is Jesus a "thing"? By the way, what would that "something" be?

Matthew 12:25, And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:

Matthew 12:25 NASB, And knowing their thoughts He said to them, "Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself shall not stand.

("Jesus" is omitted.)

Jesus is, O-U-T, out!

The last thing in the world Bible rejecters want is for Jesus to show up in the Book they are corrupting. These versions are houses divided on foundations of sand.

Matthew 12:40, For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Matthew 12:40 NKJV, "For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

("whale" is changed to "great fish" or "monster".)

The problem here is that whales are not fish(Jon. 2:1), they are mammals. God has a different classification of His creation. When God and man contradict believe the Bible!

Matthew 12:47, Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.

Matthew 12:47 RSV

(The verse is omitted.)

Some folks just do not like the idea of the Lord Jesus having brothers and sisters or Mary having other children.

Matthew 13:36, Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.

Matthew 13:36 NIV, Then he left the crowd and went into the house. His disciples came to him and said, "Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field."

The Pharisees did not like Jesus showing up in their Bibles either. "Before Abraham was, I am." John 8:58c.

(cf. Exodus 3:14)

Matthew 13:51, Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.

Matthew 13:51 NASB, "Have you understood all these things?" They *said to Him, "Yes."

("Lord" is removed.)

They are going to have to confess, "Jesus is Lord" sooner or later. (Phil. 2:11)

Matthew 14:14, And Jesus went forth, and saw a great multitude, and was moved with compassion toward them, and he healed their sick.

Matthew 14:14 NASV, And when He went ashore, He saw a great multitude, and felt compassion for them, and healed their sick.

Jesus name is removed from this miracle. The new versions are consistently weaker in their doctrinal content.

Matthew 14:22, And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.

Matthew 14:22 NASV, And immediately He made the disciples get into the boat, and go ahead of Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away.

Jesus is out again.

Matthew 14:25, And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.

Matthew 14:25 NASV, And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea.

Jesus is not popular in the modern versions.

Matthew 15:8, This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

Matthew 15:8 NIV, These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.

(8 words are gone.)

It is interesting that the verses that the new versions attack are some of the strongest personal rebukes extant.

Matthew 16:3, And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

Matthew 16:3 NIV, and in the morning, "Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast." You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.

The footnote in the NIV reads, "Some early manuscripts do not havethe rest of verse 2 and all of verse 3."

Yea, hath God said ?

Matthew 16:18, And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Matthew 16:18 NKJV, "And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.

According to popular culture, Hades is not such a bad place. Hades is also seen as a myth- from Greek mythology.

Matthew 16:20, Then charged he his disciples that they should tell no man that he was Jesus the Christ.

Matthew 16:20 NIV, Then he warned his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Christ.

"The Christ" is a New Age concept blurring the lines of Christ's deity and person.

Matthew 17:20, And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

Matthew 17:20 RSV, He said to them, "Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, "Move from here to there," and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you."

Jesus is clearly teaching that a "little faith" is all they needed. Their problem was unbelief. The RSV has a contradiction right inside the verse!

Matthew 17:21, Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

Matthew 17:21 NIV,

(The verse is omitted.)

Here is some instruction on how to deal with demon possession. I thought the new versions did not affect any doctrine. Now who do you suppose is interested in having this verse removed?

Matthew 18:11, For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

Matthew 18:11 NIV,

(Verse is omitted.)

On a scale of one to ten, how important would this verse be?

Matthew 18:15, Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

Matthew 18:15 NASV, "And if your brother sins, go and reprove him in private; if he listens to you, you have won your brother.

Are we to be the Holy Spirit in the lives of others? Personal offences are all that Jesus spoke about here.

Matthew 18:26, The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.

Matthew 18:26 NASV, "The slave therefore falling down, prostrated himself before him, saying, "Have patience with me, and I will repay you everything."

("Lord" is omitted.)

The J.W.'s claim that Jesus did not accept worship was never worshipped. Try to prove them wrong with a corrupt bible.

Matthew 19:9, And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.

Matthew 19:9 NIV, I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for marital unfaithfulness, and marries another woman commits adultery."

(11 words are missing.)

There are few topics more important than the family and marriage. Today many believers think it is okay to marry a divorced person. The new versions agree.

Matthew 19:16, And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

Matthew 19:16 NIV, Now a man came up to Jesus and asked, "Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?"

This verse has been corrupted and to make it fit into the context Matthew 19:17 must also be changed.

Matthew 19:17, And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

Matthew 19:17 NIV, "Why do you ask me about what is good?" Jesus replied. "There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, obey the commandments."

These questions are different. The meaning has changed and so does the answer. The "One" rears his ugly head yet again.

Matthew 20:16, So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

Matthew 20:16 NIV, "So the last will be first, and the first will be last."

This verse is a little too plain for modern apostate Christendom.

Matthew 20:20, Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.

Matthew 20:20 NASV, Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee came to Him with her sons, bowing down, and making a request of Him.

One can bow before a member of the royal family out of respect, but worship is reserved for God alone. Jesus, as God, accepted worship.

Matthew 20:22, But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able.

Matthew 20:22 NIV, "You don't know what you are asking," Jesus said to them. "Can you drink the cup I am going to drink?"

"We can," they answered.

(12 Words omitted.)

God's word says: "Every word of God is pure" Prov.30:5

These omitted words are not pure, according to modern scholarship.

Matthew 21:44, And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

Matthew 21:44 NIV, He who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed."

NIV footnote says, "Some manuscripts do not have verse 44."

"Ye shall not surely die." Genesis 3:4b

Matthew 22:30, For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

Matthew 22:30 NRSV, For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.

There are some angels that are not of God and they show up in heaven at times (Job 1).

Matthew 23:8, But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.

Matthew 23:8 NASV, "But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers.

("Christ" is omitted and replaced with the New Age "One".)

When the "One" does show up he will be Satan manifest in the flesh (Rev. 13). The versions are primers for New Age teaching.

Matt.23:14, Woe unto you, hypocrites! for ye devour widows houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

Matthew 23:14 NRSV

 

(Omitted.)

The RC priests do not like to be called hypocrites so the modern translators accommodate them.

Matthew 23:33, Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?

Matthew 23:33 NIV, "You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell?

God says those who reject Christ are "condemned already" John 3:18

Matthew 23:38, Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

Matthew 23:38 NASV, "Behold, your house is being left to you desolate!

NASV footnotes "desolate" as doubtful.

Matthew 24:7, For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

Matthew 24:7 NIV, Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

("pestilences" is removed.)

To lose this word is to lose the fact that Jesus predicted the pestilence of AIDS as well as other diseases. Only God knows the future.

Matthew 24:36, But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

Matthew 24:36 NIV, "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

Attempting to deny the omniscience of the Son. The NIV changes "my" Father to "the" Father.

Matthew 24:48, But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

Matthew 24:48 NASV, "But if that evil slave says in his heart, 'My master is not coming for a long time,'

(Change "servant" to "slave" also, "His coming" is altered.)

Two nasty things are seen here. Christ's servants are seen as "slaves"(slave have no free will but obey by constraint). The second coming of Christ is omitted as well.

Matthew 25:13, Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Matthew 25:13 NIV, "Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.

As in Matt.24:48, the second coming of our Lord is under attack! Folks, that is just evil!

Matthew 25:31, When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

Matthew 25:31 NIV, "When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory.

The angels are not holy and Jesus does not get the glory due His name. It is His glory. Heaven is only glorious because the Lord is there!

Matt. 26:28, For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

Matt. 26:28 NIV, " blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.

It is a "New Testament" in fulfillment of Jeremiah 31:31

Matthew 26:42, He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.

Matthew 26:42 NASV, He went away again a second time and prayed, saying, "My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Thy will be done."

("Cup" is omitted.)

Jesus was to drink from the cup of the wrath of God. This was of course necessary for salvation to be available to all.

Matthew 27:34, They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.

Matthew 27:34 NIV, There they offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall; but after tasting it, he refused to drink it.

Jesus never drank fermented wine (Prov.31:4, 23:31 and Matt. 26:29-"new").

Matthew 27:35, And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.

Matthew 27:35 NIV, When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots.

(25 words are missing in this text.)

The problem here is obvious. Jesus fulfilled a prophecy here. This is one of the prophecies that, humanly speaking, was beyond His control.

Matthew 27:54, Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

Matthew 27:54 NIV, When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, "Surely he was the Son of God!"

The NIV feels that one option the translators could have opted for was "a son of God", in place of "the Son of God". The KJB has the correct reading with no footnotes.

Matthew 28:2, And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

Matthew 28:2 NRSV, And suddenly there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord, descending from heaven, came and rolled back the stone and sat on it.

"from the door" is omitted.

Jesus made a door! That was a door that could not stay shut. Jesus said "I am the door". Jesus is the Door that is never closed.

Matthew 28:6, He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

Matthew 28:6 NIV, He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.

"Lord" is removed from the context of His resurrection.

Mat. 28:9, And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they him by the feet, and worshipped him.

Mat. 28:9 NRSV, Suddenly Jesus met them and said, "Greetings!" And they came to him, took hold of his feet, and worshiped him.

Eight words are missing here of historical and Biblical significance.

Mark 1:1,The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;

Mark 1:1 NIV, The beginning of the gospel about Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

"the Son of God"-footnoted.

This verse defines who Jesus is. He is the Son of God (Rom. 1:4). Mark is not just "about" Jesus it is "of" Him.

Mark 1:2, As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.

Mark 1:2 NIV, It is written in Isaiah the prophet: "I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way"

God is quoting Isaiah 40:3 and Malachi 3:1. It is not just one prophet that is referenced.

Mark 1:14, Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God,

Mark 1:14 NRSV, Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God,

Satan has a kingdom that he is trying to promote. He does not want to promote God's.

Mark 1:31, And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.

Mark 1:31 NASV, And He came to her and raised her up, taking her by the hand, and the fever left her, and she waited on them.

("immediately" is gone.)

Jesus miracles are a little different from the type that Benny Hinn and the boys try to palm off on God's elect!

Mark 1:41, And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.

Mark 1:41, NASV, And moved with compassion, He stretched out His hand, and touched him, and *said to him, "I am willing; be cleansed."

Jesus gets kicked out of the Book He inspired. The Lord Jesus Christ's name is removed dozens of times

Mark 1:42, And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.

Mark 1:42 NIV, Immediately the leprosy left him and he was cured.

Jesus just had to speak. He did not need to put them in a head lock.

Mark 2:17, When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Mark 2:17 NIV, On hearing this, Jesus said to them, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."

"repentance" is gone.

How important is that one little word?

"except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." Luke 13:3 (Jesus words).

Mark 3:15, And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:

Mark 3:15 NIV, and to have authority to drive out demons.

("to heal sicknesses" is omitted.)

Jesus ministry has been truncated. There are ministries that cast out demons and that is all.

Mark 3:29, But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:

Mark 3:29 NIV, But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin."

Well, is he going to Hell or is he not? The NIV leaves it "open to interpretation."

Mark 4:11, And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:

Mark 4:11 NASV, And He was saying to them, "To you has been given the mystery of the kingdom of God; but those who are outside get everything in parables,

There are some things we can know from the Word of God. A "mystery" is not some unknowable but a truth God reveals in the N.T.

Mark 5:13, And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.

Mark 5:13 NASV, And He gave them permission. And coming out, the unclean spirits entered the swine; and the herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea, about two thousand of them; and they were drowned in the sea.

Jesus gets the boot again in the Antichrist-centered versions. Come on, be honest, which Bible gives God the glory and lifts up the Lord Jesus Christ? (Try not to guess.)

Mark 5:19, Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.

Mark 5:19 NASV, And He did not let him, but He *said to him, "Go home to your people and report to them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He had mercy on you."

Hopefully these verses will give the brethren a clue who are still "stumped" on the previous reference.

Mark 6:11, And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

Mark 6:11 NIV, And if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave, as a testimony against them."

The NIV removes 23 words. (We were told the modern versions do not have any substantial changes. Strange)

This warning is just a little too plain for the sodomite members at the M.C.C. The last thing a 21st century reprobate wants to be reminded of is the firery judgement of God on a metropolis of flaming homosexuals.

Mark 6:34, And Jesus, when was moved with compassion toward them, as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began

Mark 6:34 NASV, And when He went ashore, He felt compassion for them like sheep without a shepherd; and He began

Jesus is removed time and time again...

Mark 7:8, For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.

Mark 7:8 NIV, You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men."

(15 words are removed.)

To cite examples of religious tradition is taboo as the practices listed bring it a little too close to home.

Mark 7:16, If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.

Mark 7:16 NIV,

(The verse is omitted.)

Many warnings are gone or watered down in the new versions.

Mark 7:27, But Jesus said unto her, Let the children first be filled: for it is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it unto the dogs.

Mark 7:27 NASV, And He was saying to her, "Let the children be satisfied first, for it is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs."

Jesus no longer has the preeminence in the modern bible versions.

Mark 8:1, In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him, and saith unto them,

Mark 8:1 NASV, In those days again, when there was a great multitude and they had nothing to eat, He called His disciples and *said to them,

Jesus, the name above all names ...

Mark 9:24, And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

Mark 9:24 NIV, Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!"

"... no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost." I Cor. 12:3

Mark 9:29, And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

Mark 9:29 NIV, He replied, "This kind can come out only by prayer."

Only the spiritually blind would see this as no big deal.

Mark 9:42, And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

Mark 9:42 NASV, "And whoever causes one of these little ones who believe to stumble, it would be better for him if, with a heavy millstone hung around his neck, he had been cast into the sea.

Faith must have the correct object for it to be Biblical. One can believe all kinds of heresy and be accepted by the world. It is those who believe in the Jesus of the Bible that suffer.

Mark 9:44, Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Mark 9:44 NIV,

(The verse is omitted.)

Hell is a reality that the majority can not stomach.

Mark 9:46, Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Mark 9:46 NIV,

(Verse is omitted.)

The versions are made to appeal to the widest audience possible.

Mark 9:49, For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.

Mark 9:49 NASV, "For everyone will be salted with fire.

Folks do not like the idea of sacrifice today. (Except when it comes to sacrificing the truth.)

Mark 10:7, For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;

Mark 10:7 NIV, For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,

The NIV footnotes this section of Scripture. (Gen. 3:1c)

Mark 10:21, Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

Mark 10:21 NIV, Jesus looked at him and loved him. "One thing you lack," he said. "Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."

The "Jesus" of the new versions is a lot less demanding than the Jesus of the Bible. The Lord Jesus just does not sell like the New Age character in the New Age bibles.

Mark 10:24, And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!

Mark 10:24 NIV, The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, "Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!

This is a different gospel. It is another "Jesus" preaching a different gospel. Works salvation is rampant among these proud apostates.

Mark 10:43, But so shall it not be among you: but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister:

Mark 10:43 NIV, Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,

The wording and the meaning is subtly changed. Hierarchy in the churches would come eventually.

Mark 11:10, Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.

Mark 11:10 NIV, "Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father David!"

"Hosanna in the highest!"

How important should the name of the Lord be in the mind of the average Christian?

Mark 11:14, And Jesus answered ... No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. ... disciples heard it.

Mark 11:14 NASV, And He answered "May no one ever eat fruit from you again!" were listening.

Jesus name is removed again.

Mark 11:15, And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;

Mark 11:15 NASV, And they *came to Jerusalem. And He entered the temple and began to cast out those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of those who were selling doves;

The Lord Jesus Christ always seems to take a back seat in the new versions. Often His name is changed to the New Age "The One" or "The Christ". This must be in order to sell to a broader market.

Mark 11:26, But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

Mark 11:26 NIV,

(The verse is chopped out.)

One sure sign of the abiding Holy Spirit is a willingness to forgive.

Mark 12:23, In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.

Mark 12:23 NRSV, In the resurrection whose wife will she be? For the seven had married her."

Does anyone see a pattern here? These are major doctrines that are attacked.

Mark 12:30, And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

Mark 12:30 NIV, Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.'

The Lord is emphasizing something very foundational here. To tear this apart is to weaken the structure of Christianity.

Mark 12:40, Which devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.

Mark 12:40 NIV, They devour widows' houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. Such men will be punished most severely."

Which is stronger and carries a greater deterrent? The KJB is far superior in its thrust.

Mark 12:41, And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.

Mark 12:41 NASV, And He sat down opposite the treasury, and began observing how the multitude were putting money into the treasury; and many rich people were putting in large sums.

Jesus is removed from the teaching of the widows mite.

Mark 13:6, For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

Mark 13:6 NASV, "Many will come in My name, saying, 'I am He!' and will mislead many.

This prophesy is very specific. They would not come and say, "I am Buddha" or "Caesar" or "He".

Mark 13:14, But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

Mark 13:14 NIV, "When you see 'the abomination that causes desolation' standing where it does not belong - let the reader understand - then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.

(6 words are omitted.)

The importance of this phrase can not be overstated. The Jews today do not believe Daniel was a prophet but Jesus did. One can use Daniel 9 to point a Jew to Messiah.

Mark 13:33, Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

Mark 13:33 NIV, Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come.

Another vital warning has been deleted from the Holy Bible.

Mark 14:22, And as they did eat, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.

Mark 14:22 NASV, And while they were eating, He took some bread, and after a blessing He broke it; and gave it to them, and said, "Take it; this is My body."

Jesus is missing from the Lord's Supper. The abrupt, "Take it" replaces the correct reading, "Take, eat:".

Mark 14:24, And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.

Mark 14:24 NIV, "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many," he said to them.

See note at Matthew 26:28.

Mark 14:27, And Jesus saith unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.

Mark 14:27 NIV, "You will all fall away," Jesus told them, "for it is written: "'I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered.'

This brings in the possibility of losing ones salvation. The "falling away" doctrine is very popular today.

Mark 14:68, But he denied, saying, I know not, neither understand I what thou sayest. And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew.

Mark 14:68 NIV, But he denied it. "I don't know or understand what you're talking about," he said, and went out into the entryway.

The Lord Jesus had prophesied that this would happen (Mark 14:30). The prophesy was fulfilled exactly.

Mark 15:28, And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.

Mark 15:28 NIV,

(The verse is omitted.)

Another prophesy is diminished by this blatant omission. Serious corruption!

Mark 15:39, And when the centurion, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.

Mark 15:39 NIV, And when the centurion, how he died, he said, "Surely this man was the Son of God!"

The underlined is changed to a different message. The meaning is different in the text.

Mark 16:9-20, Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept. And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not. After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country. And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them. Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

Mark 16:9-20 NASV,

This passage is placed in brackets. The Lockman Foundation is clear in its assessment of these verses:

"Brackets in the text are around words probably not in the original writings."

According to Burgon, as cited by Fuller, these verses are Holy Writ. Burgon boldly states: "... (the) manuscript evidence is so overwhelmingly in their favour that no room is left for doubt or suspicion ... not so much as one of the Fathers ... gives it as his opinion that these verses are spurious; and, that the argument derived from internal considerations proves on inquiry to be baseless and as unsubstantial as a dream.

To end this gospel at verse 8 (And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.) would leave the apostles scared, silenced, and scattered. This is not the testimony of the Holy Spirit concerning these men.

Luke 1:28, And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.

Luke 1:28 NASV, And coming in, he said to her, "Hail, favored one! The Lord is with you."

(5 words are deleted.)

Notice it does not say "above" women. The KJB is not a Roman Catholic bible.

Luke 2:14, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Luke 2:14 NIV, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

Jesus is going to bring peace on earth. The UN and the WCCC think they can bring in peace.

Luke 2:22, And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord;

Luke 2:22 NIV, When the time of their purification according to the Law of Moses had been completed, Joseph and Mary took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord

According to the law of Moses (Lev.12), it was only Mary that needed purification. The superstitious Catholics do not like that.

Luke 2:33, And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.

Luke 2:33 NASV, And His father and mother were amazed at the things which were being said about Him.

Who is Jesus' Father according to the Bible? (see John 10:29)

Luke 2:40, And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.

Luke 2:40 NIV, And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was upon him.

The NIV removes the spiritual development of Jesus. Spiritual development is lacking in children today.

Luke 2:43, And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.

Luke 2:43 NIV, After the Feast was over, while his parents were returning home, the boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they were unaware of it.

There is something wrong, WRONG, WRONG, with this. Jesus is God from everlasting eternity.

Luke 4:4, And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

Luke 4:4 NIV, Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone.'"

Every word, not just the thoughts. How are we to live on every word if some are missing?

Lk. 4:8, And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Luke 4:8 NIV, Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.'"

(9 words are deleted.)

No wonder Satan hates the KJB. Satan is filled with pride and hates the Lord's rebukes. This is how to deal with Satan.

Luke 4:18, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

Luke 4:18 NIV, "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed,

There is little comfort for the brokenhearted in the new versions. The Saviour is missing, His mission is missing, the plan of salvation is missing and the words of God are missing.

Luke 4:41, And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ.

Luke 4:41 NIV, Moreover, demons came out of many people, shouting, "You are the Son of God!" But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew he was the Christ.

Christ is missing. The demons know better who Jesus is than the modern bible translators. Are we to give this rot to our children to read?

Luke 6:48, He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.

Luke 6:48 NIV, He is like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid the foundation on rock. When a flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built.

The church was founded upon a Rock alright. "and that Rock was Christ" I Cor.10:2 (see also Romans 9:33 and I Peter 2:8).

Luke 7:22, Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.

Luke 7:22 NIV, So he replied to the messengers, "Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor.

The Bible says in John 1:12, But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

His name is important!

Luke 7:31, And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like?

Luke 7:31 NASV, "To what then shall I compare the men of this generation, and what are they like?

The Lord said a lot of things that are not contained in the text of the modern versions. This should cause deep concern and yet few seem to be bothered...

Luke 9:35, And there came a voice out of the cloud, saying, This is my beloved Son: hear him.

Luke 9:35 NIV, A voice came from the cloud, saying, "This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him."

Love in the Bible is personified & perfected in the Father-Son relationship (Gen. 22).

Luke 9:43, And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. But while they wondered every one at all things which Jesus did, he said unto his disciples,

Luke 9:43 NASV, And they were all amazed at the greatness of God. But while everyone was marveling at all that He was doing, He said to His disciples,

Jesus' name is removed from the context of this passage.

Luke 9:55, But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.

Luke 9:55 NRSV, But he turned and rebuked them.

(10 words are deleted.)

The spirit behind the new versions is the spirit of Antichrist.

Luke 9:56, For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.

Luke 9:56 NIV, and they went to another village.

(16 words are missing here.)

This verse reflects on the character and mission of Jesus. Those who destroy mens lives do not follow Christ.

Luke 9:57, And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

Luke 9:57 NIV, As they were walking along the road, a man said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go."

Jesus is the Lord. They will admit it later if they refuse to confess Him as Lord now. The versions are a joke.

Luke 9:59, And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

Luke 9:59 NASV, And He said to another, "Follow Me." But he said, "Permit me first to go and bury my father."

The devil does not like Jesus Christ being acknowledged as Lord. Satan wants the glory.

Luke 9:60, Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

Luke 9:60 NASV, But He said to him, "Allow the dead to bury their own dead; but as for you, go and proclaim everywhere the kingdom of God."

The Lord is often downgraded in the new versions. "Jesus" becomes "He" and "Lord" is removed.

Luke 10:15, And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell.

Luke 10:15 NIV, And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted up to the skies? No, you will go down to the depths.

Hell is a little too hard to take for these folks. The atheist believes we will go "down to the depths" - 6 feet under!

Luke 10:21, In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.

Luke 10:21 NASV, At that very time He rejoiced greatly in the Holy Spirit, and said, "I praise Thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that Thou didst hide these things from the wise and intelligent and didst reveal them to babes. Yes, Father, for thus it was well-pleasing in Thy sight.

Jesus is removed again. These folks do not mind some anemic, long haired, freaky person bopping on over to make the scene but when the King of Kings shows up in a preserved Bible, they freak out.

Luke 10:41-42, And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But one thing is needful: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.

Luke 10:41-42 NASV, But the Lord answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; but only a few things are necessary, really only one, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her."

Are a few things needed or just one? Jesus seems to have a hard time getting it straight in the new bibles. The Lord Jesus is not this scattered in the KJB. One wonders if He is referring to the food.

Luke 11:2, And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.

Luke 11:2 NIV, He said to them, "When you pray, say: 'Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come.'

Chopped to bits. This reads like a prayer to Satan.

Jesus spoke of those who had the devil for a father. The devil is not interested in God's will being done in heaven or on earth.

Luke 11:4, And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.

Luke 11:4 NIV, Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation.'"

God wants us to pray for deliverance from evil. The model prayer has been mutilated.

Luke 11:29, And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.

Luke 11:29 NIV, As the crowds increased, Jesus said, "This is a wicked generation. It asks for a miraculous sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.

Jesus went into history for amazing people and events to teach deep truths. Jonah, Elijah, Noah, & Sodom, were controversial but Jesus authenticated these, putting His deity on the line in doing so.

Luke 12:31, But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Luke 12:31 NIV, But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.

Satan has a kingdom as well. We are to seek the kingdom of God.

Luke 12:39, And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

Luke 12:39 NIV, But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into.

We are commanded to watch and pray. This warning to watch weakens the message contained in the new versions.

Luke 13:2, And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?

Luke 13:2 NASV, And He answered and said to them, "Do you suppose that these Galileans were greater sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered this fate?

The context of this passage is Jesus teaching on repentance.

Luke 13:25, When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are:

Luke 13:25 NIV, Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading, 'Sir, open the door for us.' "But he will answer, 'I don't know you or where you come from.'

"Lord, Lord" is the salutation of the lost. There are several places where Jesus is called this (Luke 6:46, Matt. 7:21-22)by unbelievers. If you were about to go to Hell would you call Jesus "Sir" or "Lord"?

Luke 13:35, Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Luke 13:35 NASV, "Behold, your house is left to you desolate; and I say to you, you shall not see Me until the time comes when you say, 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!'"

"ITALICS are used in the text to indicate words which are not found in the original"

Their "original" is not the original.

Luke 17:3, Take heed to yourselves: If thy brother trespass against thee, rebuke him; and if he repent, forgive him.

Luke 17:3 NIV, So watch yourselves. "If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him.

The problem is that we can never know all the sins a man commits against God and others, only against ourselves.

Luke 17:24, For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day.

Luke 17:24 NIV, For the Son of Man in his day will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other.

The NIV, in a footnote, says, "Some manuscripts do not have in his day."(cf. Gen.3:1)

That old serpent is still up to his old tricks.

Luke 17:36, Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

Luke 17:36 NIV,

(Omitted.)

This verse has been raptured out of the NIV.

Luke 18:28, Then Peter said, Lo, we have left all, and followed thee.

Luke 18:28 NASV, And Peter said, "Behold, we have left our own homes, and followed You."

The cost of discipleship is less demanding in the new versions.

Luke 20:23, But he perceived their craftiness, and said unto them, Why tempt ye me?

Luke 20:23 NIV, He saw through their duplicity and said to them,

"Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God." Matt. 4:7

Luke 21:4, For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.

Luke 21:4 NIV, All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on."

When we offer our cash in the place of worship (the New Testament church), we are offering to God.

Luke 21:8, And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

Luke 21:8 NIV, He replied: "Watch out that you are not deceived. For many will come in my name, claiming, 'I am he,' and, 'The time is near.' Do not follow them.

All New Agers come, saying, "I am Christ". They do not claim to be "he" but they do claim to be another christ.

Luke 21:36, Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

Luke 21:36 NASV, "But keep on the alert at all times, praying in order that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place before the Son of Man."

There is a problem here. It is not by might or our own strength but by the Spirit of God that we overcome. The NASV is teaching works.

Luke 22:19, And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

Luke 22:19 NASV, And when He given thanks, He broke it, and gave it to them, saying, This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me."

The NASV footnotes the last part of this verse. Communion is to be a memorial to the Lord - not a mass or a love feast.

Luke 22:20, Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

Luke 22:20 NASV, And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten, saying, "This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood.

"Some ancient mss. Do not contain v.20". This is as important as life itself - it reveals the way of eternal life.

Luke 22:31, And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

Luke 22:31 NIV, "Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you as wheat.

(4 words omitted.)

The Lord said it and that settles it.

Luke 22:43-44, And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him. And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

Luke 22:43-44 NIV, An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.

The NIV has a footnote: "Some early manuscripts do not have verses 43 and 44."

Does this inspire confidence concerning this important text?

Luke 22:64, And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?

Luke 22:64 NIV, They blindfolded him and demanded, "Prophesy! Who hit you?"

(6 words omitted.)

The NIV does not make sense if all they did was blindfold Him.

Luke 22:68, And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.

Luke 22:68 NIV, and if I asked you, you would not answer.

Jesus was prophesying His future.

Luke 23:17, (For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)

Luke 23:17 NIV,

(The verse is omitted.)

This verse explains the custom of that day.

Luke 23:34, Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

Luke 23:34 NIV, Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.

NIV footnote: "Some early manuscripts do not have this sentence."

We would be left with 6 sayings from the cross.

Luke 23:38, And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

Luke 23:38 NIV, There was a written notice above him, which read: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

(8 words omitted.)

Perhaps the translators did not feel that this translation could possibly be inspired and deleted it.

Luke 23:42, And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

Luke 23:42 NIV, Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom."

The thief had repented and turned, in faith, to Jesus as Lord (God).

Luke 23:45, And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.

Luke 23:45 NEB, the sun was in eclipse. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.

Was this a supernatural or a natural event - just a coincidence?

Luke 24:6, He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,

Luke 24:6 NASV, "He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee,

The NASV has a footnote here. Would this omission affect any important doctrine?

Luke 24:12, Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass.

Luke 24:12 NASV, [But Peter arose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he *saw the linen wrappings only; and he went away to his home, marveling at that which had happened.]

The bracketed text is considered spurious by The Lockman Foundation. The scholarship of these men is what is spurious.

Luke 24:36, And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

Luke 24:36 NASV, And while they were telling these things, He Himself stood in their midst.

(8 words omitted)

Words omitted and changed are the mark of satanic influence. (cf. Genesis 3:1-6)

Luke 24:40, And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.

Luke 24:40 NASV, [And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His feet.]

More "spurious" words or a devilish attack on the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ?

Luke 24:46, And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:

Luke 24:46 NIV, He told them, "This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day,

Four words omitted and the New Age Antichrist shows up in a verse on the resurrection.

Luke 24:47, And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Luke 24:47 NASV, and that repentance for forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in His name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem.

A person can repent and still remain lost. Repentance is a change of mind but there must be a turning to God as well. We repent and then receive forgiveness by the mercy of God.

Luke 24:49, And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

Luke 24:49 NIV, I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high."

The city of the great King is removed from the text. Here is a command of God that is incomplete.

Luke 24:51, And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.

Luke 24:51 NASV, And it came about that while He was blessing them, He parted from them.

One of the few verses on the Lord's ascension omitted from the text.

Luke 24:52, And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy:

Luke 24:52 NASV, And they returned to Jerusalem with great joy,

(4 words omitted)

In this one chapter on the resurrection and ascension of our Lord we find 9 serious errors.

John 1:14, And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

John 1:14 NIV, The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

The One is a name for Satan. The modern versions are a New Age mess. They support cultic and occult doctrine.

John 1:18, No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

John 1:18 NASV, No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten God, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.

The NASV has two gods. The J.W.s have 2 gods as well. Is there a pattern here? Hello! Fi-Fi-Fo-Fum.

John 1:27, He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.

John 1:27 NIV, He is the one who comes after me, the thongs of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie."

John was born before Jesus but was "before" John. How? Jesus is God from everlasting.

John 1:51, And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

John 1:51 NIV, He then added, "I tell you the truth, you shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man."

This event was not going to happen in the sweet by and by. The Lord brought this to pass in a few moments.

John 3:2a, The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God:

John 3:2a NASV, this man came to Him by night, and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that You have come from God as a teacher;

Jesus' name is omitted in the encounter with Nicodemus.

John 3:13, And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

John 3:13 NIV, No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven - the Son of Man.

Only God can be in heaven and on earth simultaneously. This teaches Jesus is God.

John 3:15, That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

John 3:15 NIV, that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.

This verse really nails down eternal security.

John 3:16, For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16 NIV, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

How many sons does God have? Millions. (See John 1:12 and Galatians 3:26.) The versions teach error.

John 3:18, He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

John 3:18 NIV, Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.

See note at John 3:16. The verse is doctrinally corrupt- a reflection of the theology of the translators. They should have gone to Sunday School. Amen?

John 4:24, God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

John 4:24 NRSV, God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth."

This is subtle. God is not of the same essence as other spirits (demons & angels). God is an eternal Holy Spirit.

John 4:42, And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.

John 4:42 NIV, They said to the woman, "We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world."

The context is correct here. The true Christ is the Saviour of the world and the only way to heaven. The New Age has many false christs.

John 5:3-4, In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

John 5:3-4 NIV, Here a great number of disabled people used to lie-the blind, the lame, the paralized.

(Much of verse 3 is missing as well as all of verse 4.)

The NIV has a footnote that reads: "Some less important manuscripts"

It was for these mss that the saints were burned at the stake. It is a shame these were not important texts

John 5:16, And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.

John 5:16 NIV, So, because Jesus was doing these things on the Sabbath, the Jews persecuted him.

(5 words are omitted.)

The KJB is much stronger when it gives this added detail concerning the intentions of His foes.

John 5:17, But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.

John 5:17 NASV, But He answered them, "My Father is working until now, and I Myself am working."

"Jesus" is removed. The NIV adds words to this verse.

John 5:29, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

John 5:29 NIV, and come out - those who have done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned.

Damnation is stronger than condemned. Sinners are "condemned already" without Christ.

John 5:30, I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

John 5:30 NIV, By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.

The Father is not exempt from attack in the modern versions. God is downgraded in the corrupt bibles.

John 6:14, Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus did, said, This is of a truth that prophet that should come into the world.

John 6:14 NASV, When therefore the people saw the sign which He had performed, they said, "This is of a truth the Prophet who is to come into the world."

Jesus is that Prophet. The work and ministry of Jesus was spoken of centuries before He came to the earth.

John 6:39, And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day.

John 6:39 NIV, And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.

"Father" is gone. It is the Father's will that those who trust Jesus should be resurrected from the dead.

John 6:47, Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

John 6:47 NIV, I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life.

The Saviour must be the one in whom we believe.

John 6:65, And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

John 6:65 NIV, He went on to say, "This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled him."

God is the Father of Jesus. This verse is vital in understanding the Father-Son relationship.

John 6:69, And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

John 6:69 NIV, We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God."

Jesus is not just "holy", He is the Son and Christ - promised in the Word.

John 7:53-8:11, And every man went unto his own house. Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. And early in the morning he came and taught them. And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

John 7:53-8:11 NASV, [And everyone went to his home. But Jesus went to the temple, and all the people were coming to Him; and He sat down and began to teach them. And the scribes and the Pharisees *brought a woman caught in adultery, and having set her in the midst, they *said to Him, "Teacher, this woman has been caught in adultery, in the very act. "Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women; what then do You say?" that they might have grounds for accusing Him. But Jesus stooped down, and with His finger wrote on the ground. But when they persisted said to them, "He who is without sin among you, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." And again He stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And when they heard it, they began to go out one by one He was left alone, and the woman, where she was, in the midst. And straightening up, Jesus said to her, "Woman, where are they? Did no one condemn you?" she said, "No one, Lord." And Jesus said, "Neither do I condemn you; go your way. From now on sin no more."]

The NASV claims, "Brackets in the text are around words probably not in the original writings."

If this is so the Lockman Foundation ought to have kept these verses out of their work. It should be noted that the inclusion of this scripture in the Bible only strengthens and solidifies the person of Jesus-no doctrine is weakened. The changes in the modern versions are of a different character and usually weaken the person of Christ.

Now this ought to make men sit up and take notice! Does it not seem strange and "by design" that the differences in the new bibles severely weaken all the fundamentals of the faith? Is God responsible for this mess and confusion? No, only a fool would profess such nonsense. Let God be true!

John 8:28-29, Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

John 8:28-29 NASV, Jesus therefore said, "When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me. "And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him."

Typical changes in the modern versions center around the person of the Father and the Son. What is the doctrinal ramification of all this? These readings help support Unitarian doctrine. The Bible teaches a triune God.

John 8:38, I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father.

John 8:38 NIV, I am telling you what I have seen in the Father's presence, and you do what you have heard from your father."

So much for the brotherhood of man and the universal fatherhood of God ...

John 8:47, He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.

John 8:47 NIV, He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God."

Are the words inspired or just the message? We can hear God's words still today, in the KJB.

John 8:59, Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

John 8:59 NIV, At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds.

(10 words are deleted.)

The choice of words is telling. Did Jesus slip around like a snake? The choice of an "sl" word does not fit.

John 9:4, I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

John 9:4 NIV, As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work.

It is Christ who does the work for our salvation. The context here is His work not our work.

John 9:35, Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God?

John 9:35 NIV, Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and when he found him, he said, "Do you believe in the Son of Man?"

No where in the Scriptures are we commanded to believe on the Son of man. It is God the Son that saves. Jesus is the Son of man and the Son of God.

John 10:29, My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.

John 10:29 NASV, "My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand.

The NASV footnote says: "Some early mss. read What my Father has given Me is greater than all." Poppycock!

John 10:32, Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?

John 10:32 NIV, but Jesus said to them, "I have shown you many great miracles from the Father. For which of these do you stone me?"

There is a relationship between the Father and Son that is undermined in the new versions.

John 11:41, Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

John 11:41 NIV, So they took away the stone. Then Jesus looked up and said, "Father, I thank you that you have heard me.

(8 words are gone.)

Lazarus was as dead as a doornail. Jesus is the resurrection and the life. Jesus was dead but now He is alive forever more as well.

John 13:32, If God be glorified in him, God shall also glorify him in himself, and shall straightway glorify him.

John 13:32 NIV, If God is glorified in him, God will glorify the Son in himself, and will glorify him at once.

NIV footnote: "Many early mss. do not have If God is glorified in him." Balderdash!

John 14:2, In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

John 14:2 NIV, In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.

Does God operate a rooming house? His house is so glorious it contains mansions! This is our inheritance!

John 14:16, And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

John 14:16 NASV, "And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever;

The Holy Spirit in the KJB is a comfort. The NIV has "counselor"- they offer little hope.

John 14:17, Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

John 14:17 NIV, the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.

NIV footnote: "Some early manuscripts and is." The fact is the Holy Spirit was not given until after Jesus was glorified. (John 7:39)

John 14:28b, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I.

John 14:28b NIV, I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.

See note at John 10:32

(cf. John 16:10 - NIV)

John 16:16, A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.

John 16:16 NIV, "In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me."

Jesus went to the Father, not to India to study under a New Age Swami or Guru.

John 17:12, While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

John 17:12 NIV, While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.

Three words are gone and this "protection" contradicts the facts. John the Baptist was not protected or safe from physical harm. We are not promised that.

John 17:17, Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

John 17:17 NIV, Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.

Not all truth is God's truth.

John 19:14, And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!

John 19:14 NEB, It was the eve of Passover, about noon. Pilate said to the Jews, 'Here is your king.'

The footnote is kind of cute: "Or It was Friday in Passover." Christ was crucified on Wed.

John 19:38, And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus.

John 19:38 NIV, Later, Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for the body of Jesus. Now Joseph was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly because he feared the Jews. With Pilate's permission, he came and took the body away.

The resurrection of the Lord is possibly the most attacked doctrine in the Word. One heresy is that Jesus never actually died or that some one else did.

John 20:17, Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.

John 20:17 NIV, Jesus said, "Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet returned to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.'"

The ascension is put into doubt here as well as the relationship the Father and Son enjoy. The modern versions are weaker at almost every turn!

Acts 1:3a, To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs.

Acts 1:3a NIV, After his suffering, he showed himself to these men and gave many convincing proofs.

There is a big difference between that which is infallible and that which is merely convincing.

Acts 2:1, And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

Acts 2:1 NIV, When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.

There was true unity when this church met together.

Acts 2:30, Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

Acts 2:30 NASV, "And so, because he was a prophet, and knew that God had sworn to him with an oath to seat one of his descendants upon his throne,

The resurrection is not found in this verse in the NASV. Would this be one of the doctrines "not affected" in the new versions?

Acts 2:31, He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.

Acts 2:31 NKJV, "he, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption.

Which word would be more culturally relevant to the average sixteen- year old? Who are they trying to kid?

Acts 2:38, Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Acts 2:38 NIV, Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus paid for our sins. Our sins were remitted at the cross. There is a subtle doctrinal difference here.

Acts 3:26, Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

Acts 3:26 NASV, "For you first, God raised up His Servant, and sent Him to bless you by turning every one of you from your wicked ways."

This is downgrading the Lord Jesus Christ. (cf. Acts 4:27 & 30 for the same attack on the Sonship of Christ.)

Acts 6:8, And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people.

Acts 6:8 NASV, And Stephen, full of grace and power, was performing great wonders and signs among the people.

Grace and faith are not the same. The Catholics change the meaning of these words.

Acts 7:30, And when forty years were expired, there appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush.

Acts 7:30 NIV, "After forty years had passed, an angel appeared to Moses in the flames of a burning bush in the desert near Mount Sinai.

This Angel was the Lord Jesus (John 8:58). There are angels sent by Satan.

(cf. II Cor. 11:14-15)

Acts 7:37b, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you him shall ye hear.

Acts 7:37b NIV, 'God will send you a prophet like me from your own people.'

(4 words are missing)

God commands us to hear the words of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Acts 8:37, And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

Acts 8:37 NIV,

(The entire verse is omitted. This writer was convinced of the KJB when he saw it missing in his NASV. That was all it took- one verse.)

This verse is not a favorite among the baby- sprinkling crowd and with those who "hang out" with them.

Acts 9:5, And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

Acts 9:5 NIV, "Who are you, Lord?" Saul asked. "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting," he replied.

(10 words are missing)

Some more words of Jesus, spoken after His ascension, are omitted in the account of Paul's conversion.

Acts 9:29, And he spake boldly in the name of the Lord Jesus, and disputed against the Grecians: but they went about to slay him.

Acts 9:29 NIV, And he was talking and arguing with the Hellenistic Jews; but they were attempting to put him to death.

There is a difference between arguing and speaking boldly in the Lord's name.

Acts 10:6, He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side: he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do.

Acts 10:6 NIV, He is staying with Simon the tanner, whose house is by the sea."

(9 words missing)

Simon was a man of God to whom the Lord had imparted a measure of wisdom.

Acts 10:30, And Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and, behold, a man stood before me in bright clothing,

Acts 10:30 NIV, Cornelius answered: "Four days ago I was in my house praying at this hour, at three in the afternoon. Suddenly a man in shining clothes stood before me

Fasting is missing, and missing from the lives of almost all Christians today. The root of the new bibles is bad and so the fruit is bad.

Acts 13:33, God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.

Acts 13:33 NASV, that God has fulfilled this promise to our children in that He raised up Jesus, as it is also written in the second Psalm, 'Thou art My Son; today I have begotten Thee.'

According to the NASV the promises are to our children but not to us. You get one guess- is that statement true doctrinally? Huh?

Peek-a-boo!

Acts 15:11, But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.

Acts 15:11 NIV, No! We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we are saved, just as they are."

Sadly, the NIV teaches another gospel or plan of salvation in several places(I Peter 2:2, Mark 10:24, Luke 21:19 et al). Jesus name is also missing from the text.

Acts 15:18, Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.

Acts 15:18 NIV, that have been known for ages.

We are not in an "age", we are in time.

Acts 15:34, Notwithstanding it pleased Silas to abide there still.

Acts 15:34 NIV,

(The verse is omitted.)

Here a vital detail is stricken from the Book.

Acts 16:31, And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

Acts 16:31 NIV, They replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved - you and your household."

Christ is missing from this corrupt text. The NIV attacks verses where folks get saved.

Acts 17:22, Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.

Acts 17:22 NASV, And Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said, "Men of Athens, I observe that you are very religious in all respects.

Where was Paul and what was he preaching? Imagine the confusion with a multitude of versions in a church!

Acts 17:26, And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

Acts 17:26 NIV, From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.

"Blood" and "man" are not the same word. Did not the modern translators assure us that the changes did not affect the meaning of the Bible?

Acts 17:29, Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.

Acts 17:29 NIV, "Therefore since we are God's offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone - an image made by man's design and skill.

There were lots of "divine beings" in Greek mythology. Paul never uses this terminology for the God of the Bible.

Acts 17:30, And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:

Acts 17:30 NASV, "Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance, God is now declaring to men that all everywhere should repent,

Repentance is not an option. The preaching of the apostles looses all urgency in these mamby-pamby bibles.

Acts 19:4, Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.

Acts 19:4 NASV, And Paul said, "John baptized with the baptism of repentance, telling the people to believe in Him who was coming after him, that is, in Jesus."

The Lord's name is regularly shortened in the new versions. It is surprising that these men do not simply nick-name the Saviour.

Acts 19:10, And this continued by the space of two years; so that all they which dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks.

Acts 19:10 NASV, And this took place for two years, so that all who lived in Asia heard the word of the Lord, both Jews and Greeks.

God's word is the word of the Lord Jesus. This is a subtle attack on the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Acts 19:35, And when the townclerk had appeased the people, he said, Ye men of Ephesus, what man is there that knoweth not how that the city of the Ephesians is a worshipper of the great goddess Diana, and of the image which fell down from Jupiter?

Acts 19:35 NIV, The city clerk quieted the crowd and said: "Men of Ephesus, doesn't all the world know that the city of Ephesus is the guardian of the temple of the great Artemis and of her image, which fell from heaven?

The Catholics claim they do not worship Mary. The modern versions would have us believe that the Ephesians were not worshippers of their female god. Interesting.

Acts 20:21, Testifying both to the Jews, and also to the Greeks, repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

Acts 20:21 NIV, I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.

Christ is removed from this gospel invitation which includes faith and repentance.

Acts 20:24, But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.

Acts 20:24 NASV, "But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, in order that I may finish my course, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of God.

The steadfastness of Paul is removed from the modern versions. This lends well to the modern theory that Paul was some how inferior to the other apostles.

Acts 20:25, And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.

Acts 20:25 NIV, "Now I know that none of you among whom I have gone about preaching the kingdom will ever see me again.

Satan has a kingdom as well. The J.W.'s have their twisted kingdom. The Kingdom of God is what Jesus preached.

Acts 20:28, Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

Acts 20:28 NIV, Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.

(Underlined is footnoted.)

NIV says: 'Many manuscripts of the Lord'

The point is- the blood that was shed by Jesus was God's blood. To doubt this is heresy!

Acts 21:25, As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written and concluded that they observe no such thing, save only that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication.

Acts 21:25 NIV, As for the Gentile believers, we have written to them our decision that they should abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality."

It is easier to sell these versions to modern day judaizers (Seventh Day Adventists), if these commandments are watered down a little. The love of money is the root of all evil.

Acts 22:16, And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

Acts 22:16 NIV, And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name.'

There is not a preacher I know that would ever give this kind of invitation.

Acts 23:9, And there arose a great cry: and the scribes that were of the Pharisees' part arose, and strove, saying, We find no evil in this man: but if a spirit or an angel hath spoken to him, let us not fight against God.

Acts 23:9 NIV, There was a great uproar, and some of the teachers of the law who were Pharisees stood up and argued vigorously. "We find nothing wrong with this man," they said. "What if a spirit or an angel has spoken to him?"

Some of the scribes were careful not to discount the words of the apostles in case they offended God. The NIV committee is not as squeamish.

Acts 24:7, But the chief captain Lysias came upon us, and with great violence took him away out of our hands,

Acts 24:7 NIV,

(The entire verse is omitted.)

After over 1800 years of open shame, Lysias gets a break. In the NIV camp, naming names is a mortal sin.

Acts 24:14, But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:

Acts 24:14 NIV, However, I admit that I worship the God of our fathers as a follower of the Way, which they call a sect. I believe everything that agrees with the Law and that is written in the Prophets,

To the lost we preach heresy. There is a subtle shift in emphasis as well. To believe what agrees with the Law is the wrong standard to measure true doctrine.

Acts 24:15, And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

Acts 24:15, and I have the same hope in God as these men, that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked.

What is it that is dead? The soul goes to heaven or hell. The resurrection always speaks of what happens to the body- a dead body.

Acts 28:16, And when we came to Rome, the centurion delivered the prisoners to the captain of the guard: but Paul was suffered to dwell by himself with a soldier that kept him.

Acts 28:16 NIV, When we got to Rome, Paul was allowed to live by himself, with a soldier to guard him.

(11 words are missing)

The account of what happened here is not complete. This is truth that has been stricken from the Biblical record.

Acts 28:29, And when he had said these words, the Jews departed, and had great reasoning among themselves.

Acts 28:29 NIV,

(Omitted)

It seems the NIV boys have been "reasoning among themselves" about these words.

Romans 1:3, Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

Romans 1:3 NASV, concerning His Son, who was born of a descendant of David according to the flesh,

His Son is our Lord. Think on this. This verse lends itself to the doctrine of the trinity.

Romans 1:16, For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Romans 1:16 NIV, I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

There is a heresy that Paul's gospel was not Christ's gospel and that Peter had yet another gospel. There is only one gospel of Christ.

Romans 1:29, Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

Romans 1:29 NIV, They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips,

"Fornication" is omitted as a characteristic of the ungodly. The product of these modern versions are a generation of spiritual fornicators.

Romans 5:1, Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

Romans 5:1 NIV, Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,

The NIV footnote reads: Or let us. The NIV reads as a human book. Justification is all of God and His grace.

Romans 5:6, For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

Romans 5:6 NIV, You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly.

Codex B, on which the versions are based, says, "If indeed". Are we not totally depraved and undone? There is no doubt in Scripture about the state of man.

Romans 5:8, But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8 NIV, But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Commendeth is more personal and reflects the love of God. Vacuums are "demonstrated".

Romans 6:11, Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:11 NIV, In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

("Our Lord" is omitted.)

We are only dead to sin when Jesus is our Lord. Calling Jesus "Lord" is to call Him God.

Romans 8:1, There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romans 8:1 NASV, There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

I had a Bible College teacher tell me the KJB was wrong here and made no sense. It makes no sense to the blinded.

Romans 9:28, For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.

Romans 9:28 NIV, For the Lord will carry out his sentence on earth with speed and finality."

The judgement the Lord will bring upon this earth is a righteous judgement. God, the Creator, calls the shots.

Romans 9:32, Wherefore? Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law. For they stumbled at that stumblingstone;

Romans 9:32 NIV, Why not? Because they pursued it not by faith but as if it were by works. They stumbled over the "stumbling stone."

The law of Moses is removed from the text- consistent with the NIV practice of removing God's word elsewhere.

Romans 10:15, And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Romans 10:15 NIV, And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"

(5 words are gone.)

The 'good news' is the gospel of peace. There are all kinds of good messages out there. The preacher is sent to preach the gospel.

Romans 10:17, So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Romans 10:17 NIV, Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.

The message of the gospel can be preached without the words that Christ spoke on earth.

Romans 11:6, And if by grace, But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

Romans 11:6 NIV, And if by grace,

(The last 18 words are missing from this verse.)

The clear, scriptural definition of works and grace is obscured in the modern versions.

Romans 13:9, For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

Romans 13:9 NASV, For this, "You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet," and if there is any other commandment, it is summed up in this saying, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

The new versions are false witnesses. These perversions bear false witness against the Word of God. Perhaps the translators felt some Holy Ghost conviction and left this out to cover up their sin.

Romans 14:6, He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks.

Romans 14:6 NIV, He who regards one day as special, does so to the Lord. He who eats meat, eats to the Lord, for he gives thanks to God; and he who abstains, does so to the Lord and gives thanks to God.

(15 words are omitted.)

This is a good lesson in Biblical Christian liberty. Sadly, many claim we have liberty to use any version we want to. This is a false application of this Scriptural doctrine.

Romans 14:10-11, But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

Cf. v.11

For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.

Romans 14:10-11 NIV, You, then, why do you judge your brother? Or why do you look down on your brother? For we will all stand before God's judgment seat. (Cf. v.11) It is written: "'As surely as I live,' says the Lord, 'every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.'"

If these Scriptures are compared it becomes clear that the NIV has a theological axe to grind. Since the days of the apostles, until the mid- 1800's, the Bible was clear, we would stand before Christ, who is God, at the judgement.

Romans 14:21, It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.

Romans 14:21 NIV, It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother to fall.

Seven words are missing from this verse. God is emphatic that we ought not to cause our brother to stumble.

Romans 15:8, Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:

Romans 15:8 NIV, For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the Jews on behalf of God's truth, to confirm the promises made to the patriarchs

The Lord Jesus Christ seems to be attacked a lot in the versions. The attacks are often on His name (Acts 4:12).

Romans 15:19, Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.

Romans 15:19 NIV, by the power of signs and miracles, through the power of the Spirit. So from Jerusalem all the way around to Illyricum, I have fully proclaimed the gospel of Christ.

God is removed from the text. These Bible critics can not take the Word being preached. "Sharing" or "giving a testimony" is about all they can handle.

Romans 15:29, And I am sure that, when I come unto you, I shall come in the fulness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ.

Romans 15:29 NIV, I know that when I come to you, I will come in the full measure of the blessing of Christ.

In order for a sinner to be blessed of Christ, he must come by way of the gospel & the cross.

Romans 16:18, For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

Romans 16:18 NIV, For such people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they deceive the minds of naive people.

Jesus gets the boot once again. These Bible rejecters continue to slight the blessed Son of God. Jesus is coming and boy is He angry!

Romans 16:20, And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

Romans 16:20 NASV, And the God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

Christ is removed from this verse. Can we try for a baker's dozen? How about a hat trick?

Romans 16:24, The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Romans 16:24 NIV,

(verse is omitted)

How important is the grace of God?

1 Corinthians 1:21, For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

1 Corinthians 1:21 NASV, For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.

(The meaning is altered.)

This ought to make you weep. The meaning of this verse has been maliciously changed to say the message is foolish. These folks loath authoritative preaching! It is foolishness to them.

1 Corinthians 1:22, For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

1 Corinthians 1:22 NKJV, For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom;

Any more requests for corrupt readings?

1 Corinthians 5:4, Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered Jesus Christ,

1 Cor. 5:4 NASV, Lord Jesus, of our Lord Jesus,

("Christ" is removed twice)

"If at first you don't succeed, why try again?"

1 Corinthians 5:5, To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

1 Corinthians 5:5, hand this man over to Satan, so that the sinful nature may be destroyed and his spirit saved on the day of the Lord.

This verse ties in Jesus with the Old Testament prophesies about "the day of the Lord" (Joel 1:15, 2:1, et al).

1 Corinthians 5:7, Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

1 Corinthians 5:7 NIV, Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast - as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.

Adding to the Word of God is as bad as subtracting. Jesus was sacrificed for a purpose- "for us"!

1 Corinthians 6:9, Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

1 Corinthians 6:9 NIV, Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders

In these days of political correctness, the sodomites have found an 'out'. They claim it is fine to be 'gay' but that it would be wrong to prostitute or be an "offender" (rape, etc.)

1 Corinthians 6:20, For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

1 Corinthians 6:20 NIV, you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

(7 words are missing)

We are bought and paid for by God's blood. We only have the right to freely serve God.

1 Cor. 7:1, Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.

(guards against fornication)

1 Cor. 7:1 NEB, And Now for the matters you wrote about. It is a good thing for a man to have nothing to do with women.

The NIV says, "It is good for a man not to marry." These religious reprobates know nothing of marriage!

1 Corinthians 7:5, Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

1 Corinthians 7:5 NIV, Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

The modern versions remove fasting from most New Testament references. Who do you suppose benefits from these deletions? Christians? God? The problem with these translators is that they approach the Bible as they would any book.

1 Corinthians 7:39, The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord.

1 Corinthians 7:39 NIV, A woman is bound to her husband as long as he lives. But if her husband dies, she is free to marry anyone she wishes, but he must belong to the Lord.

To omit this is to cloud the marriage issue. The wording in the NIV would lead some to think marriage was a prison.

1 Corinthians 9:1, Am I not an apostle? am I not free? have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? are not ye my work in the Lord?

1 Cor. 9:1 NIV, Am I not free? Am I not an apostle? Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are you not the result of my work in the Lord?

"Christ" is removed from Paul's defense of his apostleship and call to the ministry.

1 Corinthians 9:18, What is my reward then? Verily that, when I preach the gospel, I may make the gospel of Christ without charge, that I abuse not my power in the gospel.

1 Corinthians 9:18 NASV, What then is my reward? That, when I preach the gospel, I may offer the gospel without charge, so as not to make full use of my right in the gospel.

There are other false gospels being preached all the time. God makes the distinction between the gospel of Christ and false gospels (Gal.1:6).

1 Corinthians 9:22, To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.

1 Corinthians 9:22 NIV, To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.

The NIV outlines a different approach to the ministry than the KJB. The doctrine that is taught is different.

1 Corinthians 9:23, And this I do for the gospel's sake, that I might be partaker thereof with you.

1 Corinthians 9:23 NASV, And I do all things for the sake of the gospel, that I may become a fellow partaker of it.

Situation ethics? The end justifies the means? Modern methods are justified in the versions.

1 Corinthians 9:27, But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

1 Corinthians 9:27 NIV, No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.

The monks who flagellate themselves find 'scriptural' support in the NIV. Paul was concerned about his ministry -not prizes!

1 Corinthians 10:28, But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof:

1 Corinthians 10:28 NIV, But if anyone says to you, "This has been offered in sacrifice," then do not eat it, both for the sake of the man who told you and for conscience sake

(10 words are missing)

The earth is the Lord's. It does not belong to Green Peace or the earth mothers. It is God who chooses how it is managed (Gen. 1:28).

1 Corinthians 11:24, And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

1 Corinthians 11:24 NIV, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me."

So much for the mass. They were "eating" His body while He sat with them. His body was broken for them.

1 Corinthians 11:29, For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.

1 Corinthians 11:29 NASV, For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself, if he does not judge the body rightly.

There are some crucial changes in the new versions that do not square with Bible doctrine.

1 Corinthians 14:33, For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

1 Corinthians 14:33 NIV, For God is not a God of disorder but of peace. As in all the congregations of the saints,

There are plenty of confused Christians today, and that confusion is not of God!

1 Corinthians 15:47, The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.

1 Corinthians 15:47 NIV, The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven.

Jesus is both God and man, a truth that is lost in the NIV.

1 Corinthians 15:55, O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

1 Corinthians 15:55 NKJV, "O Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?"

The NKJV changes 'Hell' to 'Hades'. Here they are changing 'grave' to 'Hades'. This is right in line with J.W. doctrine that teaches that Hell is the grave.

1 Corinthians 16:22, If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.

1 Corinthians 16:22 NIV, If anyone does not love the Lord a curse be on him. Come, O Lord!

Jesus Christ is removed. "Lord" is not specific. Jesus is coming.

1 Corinthians 16:23, The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

1 Corinthians 16:23 NIV, The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you.

Christ is omitted from this text.

2 Corinthians 2:10, To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ;

2 Corinthians 2:10 NASV, But whom you forgive anything, I forgive also; for indeed what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, I did it for your sakes in the presence of Christ,

A different word is used here resulting in a different teaching and a different doctrine. The words of the Bible can not be divorced from the doctrine taught.

2 Corinthians 2:17, For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

2 Corinthians 2:17 NKJV, For we are not, as so many, peddling the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ.

The Sword of the Spirit is too pointed for those guilty of corrupting the very verse that exposes their sin.

2 Corinthians 4:6, For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

2 Corinthians 4:6 NIV, For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

Jesus is removed from this verse.

2 Corinthians 4:10, Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.

2 Corinthians 4:10 NIV, We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.

Lord is removed from this verse. Is anyone seeing a pattern yet? Why do the versions always seem to weaken the inspired text ?

2 Corinthians 4:14, Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.

2 Corinthians 4:14 NIV, because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you in his presence.

The NIV suggests that Christ may not have risen bodily from the tomb. This sort of blatant heresy can only be the work of Satan.

2 Corinthians 5:17, Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

2 Corinthians 5:17 NASV, Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

The new nature is 100% new. The new nature can not sin and is in complete conformity to the will of God.

2 Corinthians 5:18, And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;

2 Corinthians 5:18 NASV, Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ, and gave us the ministry of reconciliation,

Jesus' name has been removed from the context of the ministry the Lord has given to us.

2Cor. 10:5a, Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought.

2Cor. 10:5a NIV, We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought

How exactly are we to "demolish arguments"? The focus is not outward but inward thoughts.

2 Corinthians 11:6, But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things.

(The word "throughly" is changed to "thoroughly" in some recent printings of the KJB. See also 2 Tim. 3:17)

2 Corinthians 11:6 NIV, I may not be a trained speaker, but I do have knowledge. We have made this perfectly clear to you in every way.

That was not the issue. He never had to apologize for a lack of training. To be sure, Paul's schooling was some of the best training a man could have.

2 Corinthians 11:31, The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.

2 Corinthians 11:31 NASV, The God and Father of the Lord Jesus, He who is blessed forever, knows that I am not lying.

The NASV is lying. That is not what God said. The Lord's full title is attacked here.

2 Corinthians 12:9, And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

2 Corinthians 12:9 NASV, And He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness." Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may dwell in me.

Christians are not empowered by impersonal forces but by the very power of God. The provision we need is Christ's power, not a generic, temporal substitute.

Galatians 2:20, I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

Galatians 2:20 NIV, I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

As Christians, we have life now. We do not need to wait for eternity to experience the eternal life the Lord so freely gives us. We live because He lives. The NIV says different.

Galatians 3:1, O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?

Galatians 3:1 NIV, You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified.

It is hard to obey the truth when some of that truth is not contained in your bible. There is a great need for simple obedience today that is missing in the versions.

Galatians 3:17b, ... that was confirmed before of God in Christ, the law ...

Galatians 3:17b NIV, ... established by God and thus do away with the promise.

Christ was there when the Law was given.

Galatians 4:7, Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

Galatians 4:7 NIV, So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir.

We are children of God and heirs through our Lord Jesus Christ. It is all of Christ.

Galatians 5:4, Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.

Galatians 5:4 NIV, You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.

The falling away doctrine is helped along in the NIV. The doctrinal bent of the translators is evident.

Galatians 5:19, Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

Galatians 5:19 NASV, Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality,

Adultery is missing and the less specific "immorality" replaces "fornication".

Galatians 6:15, For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.

Galatians 6:15 NIV, Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is a new creation.

Come on! God had no purpose in commanding Abraham and Moses to circumcise His people?

Galatians 6:17, From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.

Galatians 6:17 NIV, Finally, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.

The Lord is missing from this passage, concerning the sufferings of Paul.

Ephesians 1:1, Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:

Ephesians 1:1 NASV, Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, to the saints who are at Ephesus, and who are faithful in Christ Jesus:

(The NASV footnote reads: "Some ancient mss. do not contain at Ephesis)

Ephesians was written to a church (not a universal church). This fact interprets passages concerning the local church. If it were addressed to all saints the context is changed.

Ephesians 1:6, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

Ephesians 1:6 NIV, to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.

"Accepted" is omitted. The ominous "the One" shows up again.

Ephesians 1:18a, The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling,

Ephesians 1:18a NASV, I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know what is the hope of His calling,

The heart is deceitful and wicked. The heart often is concerned with feelings- the mind with facts.

Ephesians 3:9, And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

Ephesians 3:9 NIV, and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things.

(Attacks the triune God.)

Jesus was there at the creation. In Gen. 1:2 the Spirit of God is present. They lied when they told us the new bibles do not weaken doctrine.

Ephesians 3:14, For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Ephesians 3:14 NIV, For this reason I kneel before the Father,

There are some that bow the knee to their father the devil.

Ephesians 5:9, (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)

Ephesians 5:9 NIV, (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth)

This is a horrible attack on the Holy Spirit of God. That is doctrine!

Ephesians 5:30, For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

Ephesians 5:30 NIV, for we are members of his body.

An interesting departure from the truth.

Philippians 2:6, Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

Philippians 2:6 NASV, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped,

The versions contradict the KJB. Jesus was God, a state that did not involve robbery.

Philippians 2:7, But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

Philippians 2:7, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.

To become nothing or empty (NASV) is not the same as "no reputation".

Philippians 3:3, For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.

Philippians 3:3 NIV, For it is we who are the circumcision, we who worship by the Spirit of God, who glory in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh

Compare what Jesus said in John 4:24, God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Philippians 3:8, Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

Philippians 3:8 NRSV, More than that, I regard everything as loss because of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things, and I regard them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ

"Rubbish" is not quite the same as "dung". These pussy footers just can not believe God can speak of such things'. They need to get an honest job, like cleaning hog pens.

Philippians 3:16, Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

Philippians 3:16 NIV, Only let us live up to what we have already attained.

(13 words are omitted)

This command details our walk with the Lord. It is a warning against back-sliding.

Philippians 4:13, I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Philippians 4:13 NIV, I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

Would that be Buddha, Krishna, a spirit guide, Allah, or a guru?

Colossians 1:2, To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Colossians 1:2 NASV, to the saints and faithful brethren in Christ who are at Colossae: Grace to you and peace from God our Father.

The Lord Jesus Christ does not get the glory. In the KJB two Persons are seen giving grace and peace to believers.

Colossians 1:14, In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

Colossians 1:14 NIV, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

 

(The blood is removed from this verse.)

There are few doctrines that carry more weight than this. Hebrews 9:22b, without shedding of blood is no remission.

All modern versions attack the Lord's blood atonement. The Good (Bad) News For Modern Man removes the blood 15 times: Matt. 27:4, 24, 25: Acts 5:28, 20:28; Rom. 3:25, 5:9; Eph. 1:7, 2:13; Col. 1:14, 20; Heb. 10:19; 1 Peter 1:19; Rev. 1:5, 5:9 Wakey, wakey!!!

Colossians 1:28, Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:

Colossians 1:28 NIV, We proclaim him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ.

Jesus' name is removed from this verse.

Colossians 2:18, Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

Colossians 2:18 NIV, Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you for the prize. Such a person goes into great detail about what he has seen, and his unspiritual mind puffs him up with idle notions.

Well, did he see it or not? Logical minds want to know. There are no contradictions in a KJB but there are in the versions. Two opposing statements can not both be true. Think!

Colossians 3:6, For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

Colossians 3:6 NIV, Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.

(5 words missing)

Those who disobey Rev. 22:19 - Jesus is coming and is He mad!

1 Thessalonians 1:1, Paul, and Silvanus, and Timotheus, unto the church of the Thessalonians which is in God the Father and in the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Thessalonians 1:1 NASV, Paul and Silvanus and Timothy to the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace.

(9 words are missing)

This is passed off as a scribal error by the modern translators. The "fuller" text of the KJB is considered suspect from the outset. These bias, bigoted, brethren need to get right.

1 Thessalonians 2:15, Who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men:

1 Thessalonians 2:15 NIV, who killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets and also drove us out. They displease God and are hostile to all men

All the prophets and writers of the Bible were Jewish. Yes, even Luke (cf. Romans 3:2).

1 Thessalonians 2:19, For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?

3:11, Now God himself and our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you.

3:13, To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.

1 Thessalonians 2:19 NIV, For what is our hope, our joy, or the crown in which we will glory in the presence of our Lord Jesus when he comes? Is it not you?

3:11, Now may our God and Father himself and our Lord Jesus clear the way for us to come to you.

3:13, May he strengthen your hearts so that you will be blameless and holy in the presence of our God and Father when our Lord Jesus comes with all his holy ones.

One wonders how bankrupt the brethren must have been to have had to employ such careless scribes to copy the Scriptures. The scholars would have us believe that the name of our Lord was inserted time and again into the text by accident! Some claim it was piety, which is not true (Rev. 22:18). A godly scribe would never add to God's word. In any case we have a hat trick!

1 Thessalonians 5:22, Abstain from all appearance of evil.

1 Thess. 5:22 NKJV, Abstain from every form of evil.

A man going into a house alone with a woman may not result in a form of evil, but it does appear evil.

2 Thessalonians 1:8, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:

1:12, That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Thessalonians 1:8 NIV, He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.

1:12 NIV, We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

'Christ' means anointed and whenever this title is removed from the Bible, the Bible is weakened.

The Lord does not get the glory in the new versions because His name is removed from the text.

1 Timothy 1:1, Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;

1 Timothy 1:1 NASV, Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus according to the commandment of God our Savior, and of Christ Jesus, who is our hope;

"Lord" is omitted. There is a link connecting our Saviour with the fact that He is God by the use of 'of'.

1 Timothy 1:17, Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

1 Timothy 1:17 NIV, Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.

The god of the new versions is not the God of the Bible. They have different attributes.

1 Timothy 2:7, Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.

1 Timothy 2:7 NIV, And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle - I am telling the truth, I am not lying - and a teacher of the true faith to the Gentiles.

Paul is testifying of his preaching and apostolic ministry. "In Christ" speaks of Paul's salvation, call and position.

1 Timothy 3:16, And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

1 Timothy 3:16 NASV, And by common confession great is the mystery of godliness: He who was revealed in the flesh, Was vindicated in the Spirit, Beheld by angels, Proclaimed among the nations, Believed on in the world, Taken up in glory.

1 Timothy 3:16b NIV, He appeared in a body,

The NIV and NASV readings are true of all. There is no mystery involved. This writer appeared in a body the day he was born. The mystery of godliness is that "God was manifest in the flesh". The incarnation and deity of Christ are at stake here!

1 Timothy 4:10, For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

1 Timothy 4:10 NIV, (and for this we labor and strive), that we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, and especially of those who believe.

Suffering reproach is not in the plan of the new prosperity gospel. Flaky believers will not put suffering and Christianity together.

1 Timothy 4:12, Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

1 Timothy 4:12 NIV, Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.

When the Holy Spirit conforms our spirit to His will, we become examples indeed. Christianity produces inward change.

1 Timothy 5:16, If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged; that it may relieve them that are widows indeed.

1 Timothy 5:16 NIV, If any woman who is a believer has widows in her family, she should help them and not let the church be burdened with them, so that the church can help those widows who are really in need.

The men are off the hook in the NIV. This lends well to all the dead-beat men who run around and take no responsibility for their families, letting the state care for them.

1 Timothy 5:21, I charge thee before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.

1 Timothy 5:21 NIV, I charge you, in the sight of God and Christ Jesus and the elect angels, to keep these instructions without partiality, and to do nothing out of favoritism.

(Lord is omitted.)

He is Lord,

He is Lord,

He is risen from the dead and He is Lord,

Every knee shall bow,

Every tongue confess, that Jesus Christ is Lord.

1 Timothy 6:1, Let as many servants as are under the yoke count their own masters worthy of all honour, that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed.

1 Timothy 6:1 NASV, Let all who are under the yoke as slaves regard their own masters as worthy of all honor so that the name of God and our doctrine may not be spoken against.

(Changes 'servants' to 'slaves'.)

The world teaches that Christianity is slavery and so do these bibles. The message is weak and worthless. It is hard for these golf course believers to accept that laziness on the job can result in God and His Word being blasphemed.

1 Timothy 6:5, Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

1 Timothy 6:5 NIV, and constant friction between men of corrupt mind, who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.

The doctrine affected here is separation. In ecumenical 'churches' this doctrine is ignored or omitted from their bibles.

1 Timothy 6:7, For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

1 Timothy 6:7 NASV, For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either.

This fact is not as certain in the new versions.

1 Timothy 6:10, For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

1 Timothy 6:10 NKJV, For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Is money the root of all evil? The Bible says that it is. Money is not the root of every sin but it is the root of all evil. Not all sins done in ignorance, for example, are evil.

1 Timothy 6:19, Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.

1 Timothy 6:19 NRSV, thus storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life that really is life.

According to some this life may not be eternal. The NRSV seems to advocate saving up for a good retirement.

1 Timothy 6:20, O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called:

1 Timothy 6:20 NKJV, O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge

There is science that is not true science. Examples include: heliocentricity, aroma therapy, evolution, yoga, and psychology.

2 Timothy 1:11, Whereunto I am appointed a preacher, and an apostle, and a teacher of the Gentiles.

2 Timothy 1:11 NIV, And of this gospel I was appointed a herald and an apostle and a teacher.

These folks do not like preachers to preach to them (Gentiles).

2 Timothy 2:15, Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

2 Timothy 2:15 NIV, Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.

The only command to study is removed in favour of doing "your best". These men can not handle the truth. God help us!

2 Timothy 2:19, Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

2 Timothy 2:19 NIV, Nevertheless, God's solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: "The Lord knows those who are his," and, "Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness."

"Christ" is replaced with "Lord". 'No big deal', some would say. 'We know who God is talking about'. The point is, what did God actually say?

2 Timothy 3:3, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

2 Timothy 3:3 NIV, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,

The KJB is speaking of people. The NIV is unclear.

2 Timothy 4:1, I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

2 Timothy 4:1 NASV, I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom:

"The Lord" is omitted. The NASV makes no sense. The Lord will judge at His appearing. His appearing and kingdom are future.

2 Timothy 4:22, The Lord Jesus Christ be with thy spirit. Grace be with you. Amen.

2 Timothy 4:22 NIV, The Lord be with your spirit. Grace be with you.

The very name of the Lord is a reproach to the devil and his bible.

Titus 1:4, To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour.

Titus 1:4 NASV, to Titus, my true child in a common faith: Grace and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Savior.

The Muslims have a common faith. Christians have the faith. Our faith is not an option among many.

Hebrews 1:3, Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Hebrews 1:3 NIV, The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

Today most folks do not believe that Jesus is enough for the purging of our sins. They add: works, Mary, prayers to priests and saints, personal suffering, the mass, time in purgatory, sacraments, buying of indulgences, brown scapulas, flagellation.

Hebrews 2:7, Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:

Hebrews 2:7 NIV, You made him a little lower than the angels; you crowned him with glory and honor

(10 words removed)

Can these versions still be called Bibles when hundreds of words are missing from their texts? Gobble, gobble!

Hebrews 3:1, Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;

Hebrews 3:1 NIV, Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess.

Christ is removed from the context of His ministry as Apostle and High Priest.

Hebrews 3:6, But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.

Hebrews 3:6 NIV, But Christ is faithful as a son over God's house. And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast.

God is added to the text as well as "boasting." The meaning is altered because the words have been altered.

Hebrews 7:21, (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:)

Hebrews 7:21 NIV, but he became a priest with an oath when God said to him: "The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind: You are a priest forever.'"

The Melchisedec priesthood is full of typology. The student is left without this vital link to the Old Testament when studying from an NIV.

Hebrews 9:28, So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Hebrews 9:28 NASV, so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, shall appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.

The NASV's Jesus is much more palatable to sinners. Jesus will make a lot of 'reference to sin' when He returns. (Jesus is coming and boy is He mad!)

Hebrews 10:30, For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

Hebrews 10:30 NIV, For we know him who said, "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," and again, "The Lord will judge his people."

The NIV rule of textual criticism seems to be: 'When in doubt, leave it out.' They do not seem to know what God said!

Hebrews 10:34b, ... knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.

Hebrews 10:34b NIV, ... because you knew that you yourselves had better and lasting possessions.

Sounds like the Hebrews were keeping up with the Jones'.

Hebrews 11:11, Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.

Hebrews 11:11 NIV, By faith Abraham, even though he was past age - and Sarah herself was barren, was enabled to become a father because he considered him faithful who had made the promise.

Sarah had a child. This fact is understood by Sunday school children because they carry Bibles with this verse in tact. Isaac's birth is of vital importance.

James 2:20, But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

James 2:20 NIV, You foolish man, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless?

Which is the stronger and more accurate statement?

James 4:4, Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

James 4:4 NASV, You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.

The men involved with spiritual fornication get a break in the NASV. Is it possible that God could make this kind of mistake in His Word? Nonsense!

James 5:16, Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

James 5:16 NIV, Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.

The R.C. confessional gets 'scriptural' support in the NIV. People have faults such as tardiness which are not actually sins.

1 Peter 1:22, Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:

1 Peter 1:22 NIV, Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart.

The Holy Spirit of God is removed from this verse. It is only by the power of the Spirit that we can obey the truth - truth lost in the NIV.

1 Peter 2:2, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

1 Peter 2:2 NIV, Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation,

Sadly, the "milk of the word" has gone sour in the NIV. What on earth is "spiritual milk" ???!!!

1 Peter 2:2, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

1 Peter 2:2 NRSV, Like newborn infants, long for the pure, spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow into salvation.

This verse is not theologically correct. We do not grow "into salvation".

1 Peter 3:15, But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

1 Peter 3:15, But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,

Jesus is Lord by an act of God the Father (Phil. 2:9-11). Making Jesus Lord is a misnomer. He is the Lord. He is Lord whether we believe it or act like it.

1 Peter 3:16, Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

1 Peter 3:16 NASV, and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame.

When KJB advocates take a stand on the Bible, they are often spoken of as evil doers (divisive, bigoted, church-splitters, etc.).

1 Peter 4:1, Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;

1 Peter 4:1 NIV, Therefore, since Christ suffered in his body, arm yourselves also with the same attitude, because he who has suffered in his body is done with sin.

The Lord Jesus Christ suffered for us. There is a doctrine taught in Catholicism that suffering earns us merit for the next life.

1 Peter 4:14, If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

1 Peter 4:14 NIV, If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you.

(15 words are omitted.)

The devil does not like to see the Lord Jesus Christ getting the glory. If folks can not see satanic interference here then they are blind.

1 Peter 5:5, Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

1 Peter 5:5 NIV, Young men, in the same way be submissive to those who are older. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, "God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble."

Submission is not a popular notion today when the 'brethren' prefer to do their own thing. Even the basic obligation of going to church is ignored by many these days.

1 Peter 5:10, But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

1 Peter 5:10 NIV, And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.

Jesus is removed from the Bible for the umpteenth time. If the brethren are not concerned at this point I doubt they ever will be.

1 Peter 5:11, To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

1 Peter 5:11 NIV, To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.

Satan wants the dominion (to rule) and the glory.

1 Peter 5:14, Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.

1 Peter 5:14 NIV, Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace to all of you who are in Christ.

Amen: be it firm, be it established. The devil does not want this established.

2 Peter 1:21, For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

2 Peter 1:21 NIV, For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

The men God used to pen His words were holy. They were chosen vessels. How sad that the versions omit this.

2 Peter 2:1, But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

2 Peter 2:1 NRSV, But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive opinions. They will even deny the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction on themselves.

Would this be considered a softening of the message? It would if the person reading this had a thimble full of discernment. This kind of junk is a disgrace.

2 Peter 2:17, These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.

2 Peter 2:17 NIV, These men are springs without water and mists driven by a storm. Blackest darkness is reserved for them.

Eternal judgement is down played in the new versions. It works out better that way when it comes to sales.

2 Peter 3:2, That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:

2 Peter 3:2 NIV, I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through your apostles.

The message has subtly changed, opening up the possibility of apostolic succession. The pope is not an apostle except, possibly, in the NIV.

2 Peter 3:9b, ... but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish,

2 Peter 3:9 NIV, ... He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish,

The NIV changes "us" to "you". No big deal for most Christians.

2 Peter 3:10, But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

2 Peter 3:10 NIV, But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.

We are living in the night of human existence when the Word of God is being attacked like this. Would sinners prefer to be "burned up" or "laid bare"?

1 John 1:7, But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

1 John 1:7 NIV, But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

Christ is removed from a text concerning our cleansing by the blood. The Lord's name is above all names, except in the new versions.

1 John 2:7, Brethren, I write no new commandment unto you, but an old commandment which ye had from the beginning. The old commandment is the word which ye have heard from the beginning.

1 John 2:7 NIV, Dear friends, I am not writing you a new command but an old one, which you have had since the beginning. This old command is the message you have heard.

The Words of God are being removed from the Bible by the thousands. How would these translators feel if they wrote a letter and many words were removed?

1 John 2:20, But ye have an unction from the Holy One, and ye know all things.

1 John 2:20 NASV, But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all know.

Know what? How many angels dance on a pin? Tea prices in China?

1 John 2:28, And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.

1 John 2:28 Phillips, Remember that his teaching urges you to live "in Christ". So that if he were to suddenly reveal himself we should still know exactly where we stand, and should not have to shrink away from his presence.

The Lord Jesus Christ is coming. The versions cast doubt on this fact in two places in this verse. We can be in the presence of the Lord in times of prayer.

1 John 3:5, And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

1 John 3:5 NASV, And you know that He appeared in order to take away sins; and in Him there is no sin.

God personally dealt with everybody's sins at the cross.

1 John 3:16a, Hereby perceive we the love of God,

1 John 3:16a NIV, This is how we know what love is:

The love of God, italics or not, is omitted from the NIV.

1 John 4:3, And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

1 John 4:3 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.

The root of antichrist heresy is omitted. All false Christology finds its root in the denial or twisting of the incarnation. It is no overstatement to call these versions satanic.

1 John 4:9, In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1 John 4:9 NIV, This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.

See note at John 3:16.

1 John 4:19, We love him, because he first loved us.

1 John 4:19 NIV, We love because he first loved us.

"Him" is omitted.

1 John 5:7, For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

1 John 5:7 NASV, And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is the truth.

(This verse is omitted.)

The NASV has taken half of 1 John 5:6 and placed it where verse 7 should be. Smooth.

1 John 5:8, And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

1 John 5:8 NIV, the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.

The NIV placed the first part of verse 8 into verse 7. This way it appears v.7 is intact.

1 John 5:13, These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

1 John 5:13 NIV, I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.

(13 words are missing)

God wants us to have assurance and to be saved by believing on His Son. This verse has application for the saved and the lost.

1 John 5:13, These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

1 John 5:13 NKJV, These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.

Eternal security is put in doubt here. Once a person believes on the Lord they are saved. This part of the verse is directed at those who may read this but have never truly believed.

2 John 3, Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.

2 John 3 NIV, Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father's Son, will be with us in truth and love.

"The Lord" is removed from this text concerning grace, mercy and peace.

2 John 9, Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

2 John 9 NIV, Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.

This verse in the NIV is as weak as water. "Doctrine" is a dirty word today. The NIV is happy to accommodate the apostates if it will help the bottom line.

Jude 1, Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:

Jude 1 NASV, Jude, a bond-servant of Jesus Christ, ... to those who are the called, beloved in God the Father, and kept for Jesus Christ:

Two different words are seen here. "Sanctified" and "beloved" are not synonyms. Words carry specific meanings.

Jude 25, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

Jude 25 NIV, to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.

"Wise" is removed, affecting God's person. "Ages" is added in the NIV which flows easily with the vocabulary of this New Age world.

Revelation 1:8, I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Revelation 1:8 NIV, "I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, "who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty."

An opportunity to compare other verses (Rev. 22:13; Isaiah 41:4) is lost with this tragic omission.

Revelation 1:9, I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Revelation 1:9 NIV, I, John, your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.

A Gnostic heresy was that a man named Jesus became the Christ at his baptism up until his death. This is why "Jesus" and "Christ" are disassociated from one another in early mss.

Revelation 1:11, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

Revelation 1:11 NIV, which said: "Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea."

(10 words concerning the name of the Lord are missing.)

Revelation 1:8 and 1:11 complement each other. "The Almighty" of v.8 is identified as the "Alpha and Omega". It is argued that this is God the Father and not Jesus. However, v.11 in the KJB proves it is Jesus (cf. v.12-18!).

Revelation 1:18, I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

Revelation 1:18 NKJV, "I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.

This is not a good example of the NKJV, 'unlocking the spiritual treasures' in the Authorized Version".

Revelation 2:13, I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.

Revelation 2:13 NASV, 'I know where you dwell, where Satan's throne is; and you hold fast My name, and did not deny My faith, even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.

These changes do nothing but to give the devil more honour. Antipas died a martyrs death. Satan has a seat at best. In eternity Satan will be doing the floppy fish in the lake of fire with the rest of them.

Revelation 2:15, So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.

Revelation 2:15 NIV, Likewise you also have those who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans.

The Nicolaitans were those who sought to expand their power over the churches and laity.

Revelation 5:14, And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

Revelation 5:14 NIV, The four living creatures said, "Amen," and the elders fell down and worshiped.

The eternality of the Son of God is attacked here in the NIV. Jesus is clearly worshipped as God in the KJB. There are few places in the versions where Jesus is seen being worshipped.

Revelation 6:8, And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Revelation 6:8 NIV, I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

Try this soulwinning technique sometime: "Hi there! We'd like to show you from the Bible how you can be saved so that you won't end up in Hades". There is not a man in town that would be worried about that!

Revelation 6:17, For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

Revelation 6:17 NIV, For the great day of their wrath has come, and who can stand?"

The tribulation is a time of God's wrath. This kind of doctrinal change is very serious.

Revelation 8:13, And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

Revelation 8:13 NIV, As I watched, I heard an eagle that was flying in midair call out in a loud voice: "Woe! Woe! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the trumpet blasts about to be sounded by the other three angels!"

There is a big difference between an "eagle" and an "angel" in typology (Matt. 24:28; Luke 17:37). Birds in general, have a satanic connotation. Angels are messengers as here in the KJB.

Revelation 11:15, And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

Revelation 11:15 NIV, The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said: "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever."

Cf. Matt. 4:8, Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; (Jesus gets all the kingdoms).

Revelation 11:17, Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.

Revelation 11:17 NIV, saying: "We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, the One who is and who was, because you have taken your great power and have begun to reign.

(The second coming of the Lord is omitted.)

The tribulation is still going hot and heavy. The Lord has not returned with His saints yet. This reading affects the second coming of the Lord.

Revelation 12:12, Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Revelation 12:12 NASV, "For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time."

The devil is going to turn his back on his people. Those who are left are going to taste the wrath of God and He will use the devil to accomplish His will.

Revelation 12:17, And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Revelation 12:17 NIV, Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring, ... those who obey God's commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.

Another reference where "Christ" is removed from a verse associating Him with His name "Jesus" (See note at 1 John 4:3). These are indeed New Age versions.

Revelation 14:1, And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.

Revelation 14:1 NIV, Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads.

Let's see, some folks will have another name on their foreheads (Rev.13:17). "New Age" is too mild a term for this trash.

Revelation 14:5, And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

Revelation 14:5 NIV, No lie was found in their mouths; they are blameless.

Satan gets a throne in Rev. 2:13 and God loses His throne in this verse. Is anyone concerned yet?

Revelation 15:3, And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.

Revelation 15:3 NIV, and sang the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the Lamb: "Great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are your ways, King of the ages.

I wonder if that would include the New Age as well. This is a disgrace in the face of God Almighty. It borders on blasphemy and very few care about this.

Rev. 16:5, And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.

Rev. 16:5 NIV, ... angel ... of the waters say: "You are just in these judgments, you who are and who were, the Holy One, because you have so judged;

The Lord's name and His eternality are attacked here. This is blatant corruption of the text.

Revelation 16:7, And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.

Revelation 16:7 NIV, And I heard the altar respond: "Yes, Lord God Almighty, true and just are your judgments."

Do altar speak? No, but people who have been martyred for Jesus are under it (Rev. 6:9).

Revelation 16:17, And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.

Revelation 16:17 NIV, The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, "It is done!"

There is a temple in heaven, "not made with hands," (Heb. 9:11). It is the same place where the blood of Christ is today (Heb. 9:12).

Revelation 18:20, Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

Revelation 18:20 NIV, Rejoice over her, O heaven! Rejoice, saints and apostles and prophets! God has judged her for the way she treated you.

"Holy" is missing all over the modern versions. It is no longer a Holy Bible. Holiness is a vital doctrine.

Revelation 20:9, And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

Revelation 20:9 NIV, They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God's people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them.

(4 words are missing)

The God of the Bible is not found in the modern versions. This account is not a natural phenomena but a direct judgement from God.

Revelation 20:12, And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

 

Revelation 20:12 NIV, And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books.

Shall we go to the original Greek? kai; ei\don tou;" nekrouv" mikrouv" kai; megavlou", eJstw`ta" ejnwvpion tou` qeou`, kai; bibliva hjnew/cqhsan: kai; biblivon a[llo hjnew/cqh, o{ ejsti th`" zwh`": kai; ejkrivqhsan oiJ nekroi; ejk tw`n gegrammevnwn ejn toi`" biblivoi", kata; ta; e[rga aujtw`n. Revelation 20:12 (The word God [qeou] is in the Greek text.)

Revelation 20:14, And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Revelation 20:14 NRSV, Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire;

The use of "Hades" is across the board. These modernists are going to Hell.

Revelation 21:24, And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

Revelation 21:24 NIV, The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it.

Universal salvation? Will all people be saved or must ye be born again? The Bible is clear -not the versions.

Revelation 22:14, Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

Revelation 22:14 NIV, "Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.

Our robes were washed the day we were saved. Is there a second chance in eternity? No, but the new bibles make room for that idea.

Revelation 22:19, 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.

Revelation 22:19 NIV, And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

Perhaps the environmentalists got a little concerned about a tree being used to make a book. They left a tree standing but chopped up the Word of God with their axe.

Revelation 22:21, The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Revelation 22:21 NIV, The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God's people. Amen.

 

(Christ is removed from this verse.)

He is the Lord Jesus Christ . The critics have corrupted His Word in the new versions starting in the first verse, Genesis 1:1 and ending with the last verse, Revelation 22:21.
