1. God has placed a lot of importance upon His WORDS
Matthew 24:35 reads, "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my WORDS
shall not pass away."
The spiritual life-blood of the human race is the word of God.
Psalms 138:2 says, ". . . for thou hast magnified thy WORD above all thy name."
Psalms 119:89 says, "For ever, O LORD, thy WORD is
settled in heaven."
- It brings salvation: "Being born again, not of corruptible
seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God. . ."
(1 Peter 1:23)
- It produces faith: ". . . faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God"
- It produces spiritual growth: ". . .desire the sincere milk
of the word, that ye may grow thereby:" (1 Peter 2:2)
Jesus Christ said in John 6:63, ". . .the words that
I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are LIFE."
2. And the first time Satan attacks the human race was a direct
attack on the word of God!
Genesis 3:1 says, "Now the
serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the
Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, YEA, HATH GOD
SAID. . .?"
Satan planted a small seed of doubt into
the mind of Eve. And as Eve questioned the truthfulness of God's
Word - the fall of mankind was only a bite away.
3. Satan's aim of attack hasn't changed!
In Luke 8, Jesus Christ tells
the parable of the sower, verses 11,12 read, "Now the parable
is this: The SEED is the word of God. . . THEN COMETH THE DEVIL,
and taketh away the word. . ."NO WONDER PEOPLE ARE CONFUSED!
Satan knows - if he can supplant even a small seed of doubt in God's word -
MANKIND WILL LOOK ELSEWHERE!
Never in history has such doubt and confusion over the Bible existed
as is today. And nothing has flamed the fire of confusion and
doubt over the Bible more than the scores of different translations
flooding the scene. Time magazine (April 20, 1981 p.62) reports, ". . . there is an UNPRECEDENTED CONFUSION of
choices in Bibles. Never have so many major new translations been
on the market." Since 1880, over 200 different translations
have appeared. Every six months a new English version appears!
The question has to be asked - is God the author of this flood of new versions? Is God
the author of CONFUSION in His word? 1 Corinthians 14:33, clearly
states, "God is NOT the author of CONFUSION."
BUT SATAN IS! He knows, if he can plant the smallest seed of doubt
and confusion - that individual will not take God's word serious!
4. God promised to preserve His word...
God promised in Psalms 12:7 that He would preserve His
word, "Thou shalt KEEP them, O LORD, thou shalt PRESERVE
them from this generation FOR EVER."
And God keeps His promise! I believe, without a doubt, the King James
Bible is the preserved word of God. And the new versions
are satanic counterfeits to cast doubt, cause confusion and ATTACK
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!
And I'm going to prove that on the remainder of this message! If you've come this
far, please keep reading
- what you're about to read - may be the most important words YOU WILL EVER
5. Are the new versions different?
Most people believe the different versions are basically the same.
They believe the newer versions are just "harmless"
updating of words and made easier to understand.
NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH!
One of the clearest verses in the Bible proclaiming the deity
of Jesus Christ, that Jesus was God in the flesh, is 1 Timothy
3:16. The King James Bible reads, "And without controversy
great is the mystery of godliness: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE
FLESH. . ." The King James says, clearly,
"GOD was manifest in the flesh".
The New International Version (NIV) says, "HE appeared
in a body". The NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV, etc, change "GOD"
to "HE". "He appeared in a body"? Big deal! Everyone has "appeared in a body"! The KJV is
clear and definite, "GOD was manifest in the flesh".
"He" is a pronoun that refers to a noun or antecedent.
There is no antecedent in the context! The statement does
NOT even make grammatical sense!
5.1. AN ATTACK ON THE DEITY OF JESUS CHRIST!
In Philippians 2:6, The KJV again, clearly declares the deity
of Jesus Christ: "Who, being in the form of God, thought
it not robbery TO BE EQUAL WITH GOD" The new translations
completely re-word the verse to deny the deity of Jesus Christ!
The NIV, RSV, NASV, NRSV, NKJV(1979 ed.), etc. reads, "Who,
being in very nature God, DID NOT CONSIDER EQUALITY WITH GOD
something to be grasped,"
Someone is attacking the most important doctrine in the Bible - the deity of Jesus
WHO WOULD DO SUCH A THING?
5.2. They attack the virgin birth!
In Luke 2:33, The King James reads, "And JOSEPH and his mother
marvelled at those things which were spoken of him." The NIV, NASV,
NRSV, etc. reads, "The CHILD'S FATHER and mother
marveled at what was said about him." The "CHILD'S
FATHER"? Do you believe that Joseph was Jesus's father?
Not if you believe the virgin birth! Not if you believe John 3:16,
that Jesus Christ was the Son of God! A subtle, attack at the
Think these are just isolated cases? NOT BY A LONG SHOT!
There are over 6,000 changes!
5.3. They remove the Blood!
Consider Colossians 1:14: the KJV reads, "In whom we have redemption THROUGH HIS
BLOOD, even the forgiveness of sins:" The NIV reads,
"In whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins."
The NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV and co. rip the precious words "THROUGH
HIS BLOOD" out! Friend, salvation is only "THROUGH HIS
BLOOD". That old song says, "What can wash away my sins,
NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS!"
5.4. They attack John 3:16!
And something has to be done with John 3:16! So the NIV and company reads, "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" - removing the critical word "BEGOTTEN"!
If Jesus was "the one and only" then what happens to
the wonderful promise to believers like 1 John 3:2, "Beloved,
now are we the sons of God. . ."? AN OBVIOUS CONTRADICTION APPEARS!
5.5. They tell lies!
A blatant error is found in the NIV, NASV, NRSV and "buddies"
in Mark 1:2,3: "It is written in Isaiah the prophet: I will
send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way -a
voice of one calling in the desert, Prepare the way for the Lord,
make straight paths for him." It is NOT written in Isaiah!
"I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare
your way" - is found in Malachi 3:1! The King James
correctly reads: "As it is written in the PROPHETS,
. . ."
5.6. A better translation! Easier to
understand! BY A LIE!
Psalms 119:160 says, "Thy word is TRUE. . ."
John 17:17 says, ". . . thy word is TRUTH." Titus
1:2 clearly says, ". . . God that CANNOT LIE"
How could the God of Titus 1:2 be the God of Mark 1:2,3 in these
new versions? Either the translators of the NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV,
"crowd" can't read or have never read Isaiah nor Malachi (which is
likely!) or somebody is deliberately tampering
with God's Word to DISCREDIT IT! Who would do such a
I'll give you a hint - he's called the "A LIAR, and the father of it" in John 8:44!
Oh, by the way, did you think David killed Goliath? Not according
to the NIV, NRSV, NASV, and "boys". In 2 Samuel 21:19,
they erroneously read, ". . . Elhanan son of JaareOregim
the Bethlehemite killed Goliath the Gittite, who had a spear with
a shaft like a weaver's rod."
5.7. They make Lucifer and Jesus Christ - THE SAME!
In Isaiah 14:12, the father of the new versions removes his mask. The King James
reads, "How art thou fallen from heaven,
O LUCIFER, son of the morning!. . ." The NIV, NASV,
NRSV etc. reads, "How you have fallen from heaven, O MORNING
STAR, son of the dawn. . ." The new per-versions change
"Lucifer" to "morning star". According
to Revelation 22:16, the "morning star" is the Lord
Jesus Christ! What blasphemy! What perversion! And there's
no basis whatsoever for the change! The Hebrew word for star (kokab)
is not even found in Isaiah 14:12! Is there any doubt who is
the "daddy" of these new versions?
5.8. They take out hell!
If Satan is the author of these new versions, one subject he will
aim his attack, is the place the Bible calls hell.
And the new versions go "into loony land" removing it!
Many times they change "hell" to "grave" or
"death", but the word "hell" is far and few
in the new versions! Like Psalm 9:17: in the King James reads,
"The wicked shall be turned into HELL. . ." The NIV, reads, "The wicked return to the GRAVE. .
." We ALL "return to the GRAVE"!
Many times when the new versions come to the obvious word "hell"
- they replace it with the Greek word "Hades" or
Hebrew "Sheol"! (See Matt. 16:18, Luke 16:23, Acts 2:31
and many, many more, the NEW King James does this 29 times!) Rather
than translate into the obvious word hell - THEY REFUSE TO
5.9. And this is a better translation? And these
new versions are "easier to read" and "understand"?
Who in their right mind thinks Hades or Sheol is "easier
to understand" than hell? Why didn't they leave in the Greek
word "Ouranos" for heaven? It's obvious! Because
someone is trying to remove and cast doubt on the place called hell!
In Isaiah 14:15, the King James Bible condemns Lucifer to hell:
"Yet thou shalt be brought down to HELL . . ."
The new versions refuse to send Lucifer to hell! The NIV reads,
"But you are brought down to the GRAVE. . ."
The NASV, NRSV, NEW King James (NKJV) places him in "Sheol"!
5.10. hmm. . . I wonder which one the Devil prefers?
The Lord's or The Devil's Prayer?
An alarming display of Satanic perversion is found in Luke 11.
The "The Lord's Prayer" is subtly (see 2 Cor.
11:3) transformed into "The Devil's Prayer".
The King James Bible in Luke 11:2-4, reads, ". . .Our Father which
art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy
will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day
our daily bread. 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." Incredibly, the NIV, NASV, NRSV, etc. take out: "WHICH ART IN
. . Thy will be done, AS IN HEAVEN, so in earth. . .
but DELIVER US FROM EVIL." Heaven is completely removed!
The "father" of the new versions is NOT IN
HEAVEN and DOES NOT DELIVER FROM EVIL!
I wonder who it could be? (hint: see John 8:44)
Are you getting the picture? Do you see how subtil (see Genesis
3:1), seemingly, harmless the changes are - AND YET HOW DEADLY
THEY ARE TO THE INTEGRITY OF GOD'S WORD!
They attack the Lord Jesus Christ!
They attack the plan of salvation!
They glorify Lucifer!
And they deny hell!
Yes friend. Satan has launched an attack on your Bible!
YOU'D BETTER BELIEVE IT!
Did you know, the King James Bible is the only English Bible in
the world that has a command to "study" your Bible! That's right! 2 Timothy 2:15, "STUDY to show thyself approved
unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing
the word of truth" - has been changed in every English
Bible on the face of this earth! BUT ONE!
5.11. They take out whole verses!
In Acts 8:37, the King James reads, "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."
The NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV and "buddies" reads -
ZIP! NOTHING! THEY TOOK THE WHOLE VERSE OUT! One of the
best verses in the Bible on salvation through Jesus Christ and
they rip it out! Why?
Why is it that every time a sinner is saved
by grace in the book of Acts - THEY ATTACK IT? In
Acts 9:5,6: Paul is getting saved, and they take out 20 words!
In Acts 16:31 when the Philippian jailor is getting saved, the
word "CHRIST" is delicately removed! Why do these new
bibles so fiercely attack God's wonderful plan of salvation?
6. [Questions and Anwsers]
6.1. WHO WOULD DO SUCH A THING?
Several times the Lord warns against "adding and taking
away" from His Word.
And despite these clear warnings, the new versions, take out and
add text, over and over! One of the greatest verses in all the Bible, Matthew 18:11: "For the Son of man is come to save
that which was lost." - THEY TAKE IT OUT!
- Deuteronomy 4:2 reads: "YE SHALL
NOT ADD unto the word which I command you, NEITHER SHALL
YE DIMINISH ought from it . . ."
- Proverbs 30::6, reads, "ADD THOU NOT unto his words . . ."
- And just in case you missed it, GOD'S LAST WARNING is Revelation
22:18,19, ". . . IF ANY MAN SHALL ADD unto these things.
. . 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. . ."
They take out: Romans 16:24, Mark 11:25, Acts 15:34, Luke 23:17,
Acts 28:29, John 5:4, Mark 7:16, 9:44,46 and many, many more -
as your Bible is literally cut apart!YOU HAVE THE WORD OF GOD!
Jesus Christ says, in Luke 4:4, ". . . It is written, That man shall not live by bread
alone, but by EVERY WORD OF GOD." Not according to
the NIV, NASV, NRSV and crew! In fact, the even "tear out"the
last half of Luke 4:4 - "BUT BY EVERY WORD OF GOD"!
Yes, but the new versions have the deity in other places. They
contain the plan of salvation in other places. There is good in them. Did you know ONE
tiny, microscopic AIDS virus will "defile"
a whole batch of perfectly "good" blood? It has some
"good" in it - BUT IT WOULD BE DEADLY!
Would you "inject" it into your child, loved one or congregation? And would you "inject" them with
a Bible that is "defiled" because it has some "good"?
It could be far more costly than their physical life - THEIR
ETERNAL SOUL! Galatians 5:9 says, "A LITTLE leaven
leaveneth THE WHOLE lump."
6.3. But aren't the new versions easier to read?
One of the lies used to promote these per-versions is "they're
easier to read and understand". But according to a Flesch-Kincaid
Grade Level research study, The King James Bible is by far the easiest! Out of 26 different categories - the King James
graded easier in a whopping 23! (New Age Bible Versions, Riplinger, pp.195-209)
6.4. But haven't "older and more reliable" manuscripts been
But haven't "older and more reliable manuscripts been discovered"
since the King James Bible. Dr. Sam Gipp writes, "The fact
is, that the King James translators had ALL OF THE READINGS
available to them that modern critics have available to them today."
(The Answer Book, Gipp, p.110) Not only that, but most of the
recent discoveries support the King James Bible! And furthermore,
it is a well documented fact that 85 - 90 per cent of all readings
agree with the King James Bible! SO WHY ALL THE CHANGES? See Genesis
6.5. What about the "ORIGINALS"?
Your King James Bible is attacked by preachers, some intentional
and some simply out of ignorance, by "correcting" it
with "THE ORIGINALS". There is one itsy-bitsy
problem. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS "THE ORIGINALS"!
We don't have the "originals" Moses, or Paul, or David wrote. There are no set of "ORIGINALS" on the
face of this earth! The ghost of "THE ORIGINALS"
is a LIE! See John 8:44!
Preachers, by the thousands, will stand weekly in the pulpit and
"correct" your King James Bible by saying, "This
is an unfortunate translation" or "a better reading
would be" or "this word in the 'Greek' can also be translated.
. ." Friend, where is the Lord God? The One that "spoke"
the worlds into existence - can He not preserve His
word as He promised in Psalm 12:7 and Matthew 24:35? Did God Almighty
NOT know what He was "inspiring"? Does the Lord need
these "Bible correctors" to "help" Him "straighten-out"
As God promised, He has preserved His word for the
English people in the King James Bible. Proverbs 16:10 says, "A
divine sentence is in the lips of the KING. . ." Ecclesiastes
8:4 says, "Where the word of a KING is, there is power
. . ." King James. "James" is not an English
word but a Hebrew word. Did you know the Hebrew word for James
is Jacob! You'll never guess what Psalms 147:19 says,
"He showeth His WORD unto JACOB . . ."
2 Timothy 2:9, reads, " . . . the word of God is NOT BOUND." Anybody can freely
(there's that word
Eve omitted in Genesis 3:2) print, distribute, and reproduce the
King James Bible, without asking anybody for permission! All other
translations are "bound" by © copyright laws. New American Standard, - copyright© Lockman Foundation,
New International Version - copyright© New York International
Bible Society, New King James Version - copyright© Thomas
Nelson Publishers. Who with a brain, would seriously think
the word of Almighty God is "BOUND" by copyright laws?
7. IF YOU HAVE A KING JAMES BIBLE
And don't let anybody take it from you!
Dr. Frank Logsdon was co-founder of The New American Standard
Version. As people begin confronting Dr. Logsdon on some the NASV's serious omissions and
errors. He re-examined the evidence
and this was his verdict:
"I must under God denounce every attachment to
the New American Standard Version. I'm afraid I'm in trouble with
the Lord . . . I wrote the format . . . I wrote the preface .
. . I'm in trouble; . . . its wrong, terribly wrong; its frighteningly
wrong . . .The deletions are absolutely frightening . . . there
are so many . . . Are we so naive that we do not suspect Satanic
deception in all of this?"
