Revelation 22:18-20 (KJV)
“For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
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.
20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”
Matthew 5:18 (KJV)
“For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”
2 Corinthians 11:3 (KJV)
“But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.”
The NIV translators removed over 64,000 words compared to the KJV.
Heres an example of how many words that is….
There are 54,803 words from Romans to Revelation. So to take out 64,000 words would be the equivalent of taking 22 books out of the bible. Thats 22 of the 27 New Testament books!
2. The NIV has removed 17 entire verses, and major portions of at least 147 verses!
3. Hell is mentioned only 14 times in the NIV and the KJV mentions hell 54 times
4. Important words like these are missing from the NIV “Godhead, Jehovah, omnipotent, comforter, infallible, carnal, devils, Lucifer, damnation, brimstone, bottomless pit, vanity, unthankful, sodomite, truce breakers,fornication, effeminate, whoredom.” MANY MANY MORE.
“The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” Psalm 12:6-7 (KJV)
The devils plan hasn’t changed…….
Luke 8:12 (KJV)
“Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.”
5. The NIV removes Jesus name 38 times compared to the KJV.
——Here are some examples——
Acts 8:37 (KJV)
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 is cant be found in the NIV! WHY?
In Galatians 6:15, they removed that it is ‘Christ Jesus’ who circumcises our heart
KJV reads “For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision, but a new creature.”
NIV reads– “Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is a new creation.”
In 1 Corinthians 16:22, they removed the name of ‘Jesus Christ’
KJV reads– “If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.”
NIV reads – “If anyone does not love the Lord – a curse be on him. Come, O Lord”
6. The publishing company for the NIV is Zondervan
7. Harper Collins owns Zondervan who also just so happens to put out the Satanic bible and “The Joy of Gay Sex”.
Do you really believe God would mix the holy with the profane and allow this rotten company to publish his holy word?!
8. Dr. Marten Woudstra chairman of the NIV old testament committee was openly gay.
“There is nothing in the Old Testament that corresponds to homosexuality as we understand it today.”-Dr. Marten Woudstra
9. Dr. Virginia Mollenkott, a literary critic on the NIV translation is an open lesbian.
In the Episcopal magazine, Witness (June 1991, pp. 20-23), she admits,
“My homosexuality has always been a part of me…”
Considering the committee of the NIV is full of sodomites its no surprise that the word “sodomite” is completely removed from the NIV.
“There are mistakes in the transmission of texts.”-Burton Goddard of the NIV Committee.
“The Bible is the ‘words of men’ a ‘literany production.'”- Ronald Youngblood, NIV Committee.
“I felt bound to abandon the God-dictated-ever-word-from-cover-to-cover attitude.”- J.B Phillips, Editor of the Phillips Bible.
“Ever member of the panel was conscious that some of its decisions were in no sense certain” – NEB Committee.
10. The NIV removes the word “God” 482 times. NIV has God 3,995 times and the KJV has the word God 4,477 times.
—-Here are some examples—-
Matthew 6:33 (KJV)
“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.”
1 John 3:16 (KJV)
“Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.”
1 John 3:16 (NIV)
“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.”
The love of God is different than any other love!
11. The NIV removes the word “heaven” 169 times. The KJV has the word 582 times whereas the NIV only has it 413 times.
The new translations were suppose to be only taking out the old words and replacing them with more modern language but all of these words are simple words that are still used! Everyone knows the words God, heaven, hell, Jesus and they are all very important words. So why would the NIV take those words out and claim to be making these new versions to make it easier to understand? Its a load of bull crap thats why.
The reading level of the King James Bible as a whole is a fifth grade level. The modern Bibles are shown to be between sixth and ninth grade levels as a whole. The modern versions claim to increase readability when in reality, they often make readability more difficult.
“The entire KJV averages 1.31 syllables and 3.968 letters per word. This word length puts the KJV in the same readability category as the children’s books” (D.A. Waite, Jr., The Comparative Readability of the Authorized Version, Bible for Today, Collingswood, NJ, 1996).
For example: “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”
Of the 119 words in this Psalm, only 24 are more than two syllables and only 5 are three.—-http://www.wayoflife.org/database/isnt_the_king_james_bible_too_antiquated.html

DO THEY THOUGH???
Hosea 11:12 (KJV)
12 Ephraim compasseth me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit: but Judah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with the saints.
KJV says “Judah yet ruleth with God”
Hosea 11:12 (NIV)
12 Ephraim has surrounded me with lies,
Israel with deceit.
And Judah is unruly against God,
even against the faithful Holy One.
NIV says “Judah is unruly against God”. This contradicts the KJV.
Micah 5:2 (KJV)
2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.
Micah 5:2 states very clearly that God is everlasting. ” whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.”
Micah 5:2 (NIV)
2 “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah,
though you are small among the clans[a] of Judah,
out of you will come for me
one who will be ruler over Israel,
whose origins are from of old,
from ancient times.”
The NIV adds “whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.”
The word “origins” is a problem because it indicates that God had a beginning. The NIV completly leaves out the part about everlasting.
Origin: something from which anything arises or is derived; source; fountainhead:
God has always been and didn’t derive from anything!!!
Genesis 22:2 (KJV)
“And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.”
Everyone should know Abraham didn’t sacrifice his son and that an angel stopped him before doing so. Thats why Genesis 22:2 says “OFFER him there for a burnt offering”. But thats not what the NIV says.
Genesis 22:2 (NIV)
2 Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you.”
The NIV says “Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering”
Isaiah 14:12 (KJV)
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
The KJV calls Lucifer “son of the morning”
Isaiah 14:12 (NIV)
12 How you have fallen from heaven,
morning star, son of the dawn!
You have been cast down to the earth,
you who once laid low the nations!
The NIV leaves out “Lucifer” and calls him the morning star! This is absolutely blasphemous! Jesus is called the bright and morning star and is the ONLY one who should be called the morning star.
Revelation 22:16 (KJV)
16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
The NLT calls Lucifer “O shining star, son of the morning!”
Isaiah 14:12 (NLT)
12 “How you are fallen from heaven,
O shining star, son of the morning!
You have been thrown down to the earth,
you who destroyed the nations of the world.
Isaiah 26:3 (KJV)
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”
Isaiah 26:3 (NIV)
3 You will keep in perfect peace
those whose minds are steadfast,
because they trust in you.
The NIV leaves out “whose mind is stayed on thee” and just says “those whose minds are steadfast”. Steadfast in what? In who? Everyone is steadfast in something! Does that mean everyone trusts in Jesus? No! The KJV has a different meaning then the NIV.
The NIV and NLT preach that its hard to be saved
Mark 10:24 (KJV)
“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!”
The KJV says “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[a] to enter the kingdom of God!”
The NIV says ” how hard it is[a] to enter the kingdom of God!”
I hope you can tell the difference between the two messages. One preaches that its hard to to enter the kingdom of God. The other says its hard to enter “for those that trust in riches.” This is critical! Someone who’s trying to seek God and reads this verse in the NIV is gonna think its hard to enter the kingdom of God! But is it really that hard to trust and believe in Jesus and inherit the kingdom of God? It shouldn’t be if you truly love Jesus! If you think its hard then you probably aren’t saved. The two messages are completely different. The KJV says “for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!” because if you are trusting in your riches then you aren’t trusting in Jesus and what he did therefore you cant be saved.
Mark 10:24 (NLT)
“This amazed them. But Jesus said again, “Dear children, it is very hard[a] to enter the Kingdom of God.”
The NIV says its very hard to enter the Kingdom of God. Again not the same message as the KJV.
Again in Matthew 7:14…
Matthew 7:14 (KJV)
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
The KJV says “and narrow is the way”. The NLT adds ” the road is difficult”. Life is still difficult when you are saved but it is not difficult to be saved.
Narrow: especially of something that is considerably longer or higher than it is wide) of small width.
Difficult: needing much effort or skill to accomplish, deal with, or understand.
These words are completely different! You don’t need much effort or skill to accomplish anything because Jesus has already done it all! Just trust and believe what HE DID! Everyone has the ability to understand who God is so no its not difficult at all! The NLT is a LIE.
Matthew 7:14 (NLT)
14 But the gateway to life is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it.
The NIV makes it seem like theres gonna be a couple hundred people in heaven!
1 Timothy 3:16 (KJV)
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.
The KJV says “God was manifest in the flesh” This verse is very clear that Jesus is God. Not so clear in the NIV though.
1 Timothy 3:16 (NIV)
“He appeared in the flesh,
was vindicated by the Spirit,[a]
was seen by angels,
was preached among the nations,
was believed on in the world,
was taken up in glory.”
He appeared in the flesh? There is nothing special about “he appeared in flesh.” Everyone appears in flesh. The KJV says “GOD was manifest in the flesh.” Do you see how watered down the NIV says is? This attacks the deity of Jesus Christ and makes it seem like Jesus is equal to everyone else that “appears in flesh”.
1 Timothy 3:16 (NLT)
“Without question, this is the great mystery of our faith
Christ was revealed in a human body
and vindicated by the Spirit.[c]
He was seen by angels
and announced to the nations.
He was believed in throughout the world
and taken to heaven in glory.”
“Christ was reveled in a human body…” attacks the deity of Christ being God! 1 Timothy 3:16 is one of the most blatant scriptures in the bible that says Jesus Christ is God and the NIV and the NLV remove the word God to water down the deity.
Luke 2:33 (KJV)
33 And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.
The KJV says “And Joseph” because Joseph is not Jesus father if you believe in the virgin birth!
Luke 2:33 (NIV)
33 The child’s father and mother marveled at what was said about him.
The NIV says “The child’s father”. Was Joseph the father of Jesus?NO! Jesus is the Son of God!
Luke 9:56 (KJV)
“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)
“Then he and his disciples went to another village.”
The NIV completely rips out the first part of the verse which is the most important part! Why is the NIV taking out verses that are about Jesus saving us?! Because Satan is the author of the NIV and doesn’t want you to know that you can be saved!
Luke 4:18 (KJV)
“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,”
Why does the NIV take out meaningful parts like “he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted”??
Luke 4:18 (NIV)
““The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,”
The NIV leaves out the part where Jesus came to heal those who’s heart is broken. Why doesn’t the NIV want you to know that Jesus can heal your heart? Read Romans 10:10 and think about it….
Romans 10:10 (KJV)
“For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
Matthew 9:13 (KJV)
“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.”
The KJV says “but sinners to repentance.”
Matthew 9:13 (NIV)
“But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’[a] For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
The NIV leaves out repentance. Why is this important? Read Acts 3:19
Acts 3:19 (KJV)
“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.”
Philippians 2:6 (KJV)
“Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:”
KJV says ” thought it not robbery to be equal with God:” saying that Jesus is equal to God.
Philippians 2:6 (NIV)
“Who, being in very nature[a] God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;”
The NIV says “..did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;” This twists it into a different message of Jesus not using his equality with God to his advantage. The KJV message is saying that since Jesus is in the form of God he thought it not robbery to be equal with God. This makes perfect sense because of course Jesus is God! They are one. But with the NIV that message is twisted to Jesus saying he isn’t gonna use the equality he has with God to his own advantage.
John 10:30 (KJV)
“I and my Father are one.”
John 6:47 (KJV)
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.”
The KJV says “He that believeth ON ME.”
John 6:47 (NIV)
“Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life.”
The NIV says “the one who believes has eternal life.”
According to the NIV it doesnt matter what or who you believe in. The verse only says “the one who believes has eternal life.” Everyone believes in something so does that mean everyone will have eternal life? NO! The NIV rips out who we are to believe in which is the base of our faith!
Mark 1:2-3 (KJV)
“As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
3 The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.”
The KJV says “written in the prophets”
Mark 1:2-3 (NIV)
2 as it is written in Isaiah the prophet:
“I will send my messenger ahead of you,
who will prepare your way”[a]—
3 “a voice of one calling in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord,
make straight paths for him.’”[b]
The NIV says “written in Isaiah the prophet:” So which one is it?!
Colossians 1:14 (KJV)
” In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:”
The KJV says “redemption through his blood”
Colossians 1:14 (NIV)
“in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”
The NIV deletes “through his blood”. Why is this important?! Hebrews 9:22 says “without shedding of blood is no remission.”
Hebrews 9:22 (KJV)
“And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.”
Revelation 4:2 (KJV)
“And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.”
The number one in the bible always has relation to GOD. The first commandment is “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” Only ONE God.
John 10:30 (KJV)
“I and my Father are one.”
Deuteronomy 6:4 (KJV)
4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:
Ephesians 4:3-6 (KJV)
3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
Check out how the NIV translated Revelation 4:2…..
Revelation 4:2 (NIV)
“At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it.”
Someone??? So John wasn’t sure who it was? We know the number one has a direct relation with God in the bible. John saying “and ONE sat on the throne.” shows he knew that ONE was God. The NIV has it translated “someone” as if John wasn’t sure who it was.
Romans 1:16 (KJV)
“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)
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.”
The NIV leaves out “the gospel of Christ”
Galatians 4:7 (KJV)
“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 God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.”
The NIV completely leaves out “through Christ.”
We know there are different fathers.
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Thats why the KJV makes a clear difference with which father
Ephesians 3:14 (KJV)
“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,”
The NIV takes out “Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,”
Ephesians 3:9 (KJV)
“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.”
The NIV can fit with just about any religion. The distinct difference between christians and every other religion is Jesus Christ! So if you take out Jesus then it fits with every other religion.
Philippians 4:6-8 (KJV)
“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
“Be careful for nothing” and “Do not be anxious about anything” is two completely different messages.
1 John 5:7-8- the trinity
7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
The NIV waters down the trinity by simply saying “the[a] Spirit, the water and the blood;”. They rip out Father, word and Holy Ghost!
1 John 5:7 (NIV)
“For there are three that testify: 8 the[a] Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.”
Holy Apostles VS. Apostles
Revelation 18 (6+6+6=18) is talking about the destruction of mystery babylon. Up till Revelation 18:20 the KJV makes a difference between holy apostles and false apostles by adding “holy”. Any good author (and God is the best one) is gonna make sure the reader notices the difference between the whole chapter talking about destruction and the verse thats talking about holy apostles.
Revelation 18:20 (KJV)
“Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.”
Revelation 18:20 (NIV)
20 “Rejoice over her, you heavens!
Rejoice, you people of God!
Rejoice, apostles and prophets!
For God has judged her
with the judgment she imposed on you.”
The NIV puts no difference between holy and false apostles or holy and false prophets.
I just don’t understand how someone could think this is Gods inspired word as if he’s some stupid being that doesn’t write perfect with detail.
Revelation 22:6 (KJV)
“And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.”
Revelation 22:6 (NIV)
“The angel said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true. The Lord, the God who inspires the prophets, sent his angel to show his servants the things that must soon take place.”
The NIV removes the word holy! Theres false prophets and holy prophets. By just reading the NIV you don’t see how God makes a difference between the two. He doesn’t mix the holy with the profane so why would he categorize the holy prophets with any other prophets that are false prophets? Gods word is pure because there is no errors! The NIV is a book full of errors because its not Gods inspired word.
“And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;”
HOLY GHOST VS. SPIRIT
We know from Ephesians 2:2 that there are different spirits and that not all of them are holy.
Ephesians 2:2 (KJV)
2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
Acts 6:3 (NIV)
“Brothers and sisters, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them.”
There is no difference between the spirit in Ephesians 2:2 and Acts 6:3 according to the NIV. But the KJV makes the difference clear.
Acts 6:3 (KJV)
“Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.”
1 Corinthians 2:13 (KJV)
“Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.”
1 Corinthians 2:13 (NIV)
“This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words”
There are “spirit guides”/demons that help those in witchcraft and in the occult world. These spirits teach them demonic things, so how is anyone using a NIV suppose to tell the difference between these spirits and the Holy Ghost?
Acts 8:18 (KJV)
“And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money,”
Acts 8:18 (NIV)
“When Simon saw that the Spirit was given at the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money.”
Once again the NIV makes no difference between the spirit and the Holy Ghost.
Holy Angels VS. Angles
There are fallen angles and holy angles. Thats why Matthew 25:31 in the KJV makes the difference by putting the word holy.
Matthew 25:31 (KJV)
“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 glorious throne.”
According to the NIV all the angles will be there so that means all the fallen angles will be there too.
Begotten Son VS. One and Only son
John 3:16 (KJV)
“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.”
Begotten in greek is “monogenes”
The definition of begotten in John 3:16 is “pertaining to being the only one of its kind or class, unique in kind.”
So the use of the word “begotten” shows that Jesus is unique from the other “sons of God”. Check out how the NIV reads John 3:16…..
John 3:16 (NIV)
16 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.
The problem with the NIV John 3:16 translation is Jesus is not the “one and only son” of God!
Adam is called the “son of God”
Luke 3:38 (KJV)
38 Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.
Job mentions sons of God.
Job 1:6 (KJV)
6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them.
Christians are called the “sons of God”
Philippians 2:15 (KJV)
15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
Once again “begotten” shows that Jesus is unique from the other “sons of God”. John was concerned with showing that Jesus is the Son of God (John 20:31), and he uses “monogenes” to highlight Jesus as uniquely God’s Son—sharing the same divine nature as God—as opposed to believers who are God’s sons and daughters by adoption.
1 Corinthians 5:7 (KJV)
“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, so that you may be a new unleavened batch—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.”
The NIV leaves out the part for who Christ died for! Thats pretty important don’t you think?!
Luke 4:8 (KJV)
“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)
8 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.”
The NIV takes out “Get thee behind me, Satan:” which shows the authority Jesus has over Satan. The NIV simply saying “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.” does not show Jesus having any authority over Satan.
“Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”-This indicates that Jesus is God because it says “Get thee behind me, Satan” and follows up quoting scripture about worshiping only God. The NIV makes it seem like Jesus is just quoting scripture and doesn’t give any indication that Jesus actually is God. The KJV shows the power and authority Jesus has while he quoted scripture. Everyone can quote scripture but no one can tell Satan to get behind them by their power alone. God has to give someone the power to be able and overcome Satan.
Psalm 119:140 (KJV)
“Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.”
Psalm 119:140 (NIV)
“Your promises have been thoroughly tested,
and your servant loves them.”
Tested??? As if we (Gods servants) have to “test” Gods word and give approval of. This is nonsense. Why not just say it how the KJV says that Gods words are PURE!
The following verses are missing from the NIV
“Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.”
“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.”
‘Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”
And again in Mark 9:46….
“Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.”
“But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.”
“For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.”
“If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.”
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.”
If you read the NIV are you willing to say that your book is perfect without error and believe that with all your heart? I couldn’t do that with an NIV. But I can do that with the KJV.
NEW KING JAMES VERSION EXPOSED!
Acts 17:29 (KJV)
“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.”
Exodus 20:4 (KJV)
“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.”
The bible says not to make any graven image “or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above”
The NKJV publishers will say “oh that symbol on the front of the bible just represents the trinity of father, son, and holy spirit. The bible says not to make any image “or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above”. Making a symbol to symbolize the father, son and holy spirit (which are above in heaven) is disobeying the bible.
To every symbol there are two meanings. One meaning the secret meaning meant for only a select few to know. And the other meaning is for public consumption. The symbol that was on the NKJV when first published is called the triquetra. The triquetra is used in witchcraft to represent the feminine deity. It is also pictured on the Ouija boards.
The symbol also forms 666.
Just like Google Chrome and many more logos.
The NKJV omits…
- Hell 22 times
- Blood 23 times
- Repent 49 times
- Lord 66 times
- God 51 times
- Heaven 50 times
And gets completely rid of these words…
Devils, damnation, Jehovah, New Testament
Psalm 12:6-7 (KJV)
“The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
7 Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.”
1 Corinthians 15:1-4
15 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
BELIEVE IN JESUS AND THE GOSPEL AND YE SHALL BE SAVED!
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.”
