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."
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
The spiritual life-blood of the human race is the word of
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" (Romans 10:17).
It produces spiritual growth: ". . .desire
the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:" (1
Jesus Christ said in John 6:63, ". . .the words that I speak unto
you, they are SPIRIT, and they are LIFE."
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.
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. . ."
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!
NO WONDER PEOPLE ARE CONFUSED!
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!
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
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 READ!
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!
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
WHO WOULD DO SUCH A THING?
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 virgin
Think these are just isolated cases? NOT BY A LONG SHOT! There are
over 6,000 changes!
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
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
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, . . ."
A better translation! Easier to understand! BY
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 thing?
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."
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?
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
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 TRANSLATE IT!
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"!
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 HEAVEN. . . 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
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
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!
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?
WHO WOULD DO SUCH A THING?
Several times the Lord warns against "adding and taking away" from His
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. . ."
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!
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
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
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."
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)
But haven't "older and more reliable"
manuscripts been discovered?
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
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" His word?
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 ę copyright
laws. New American Standard, - copyrightę Lockman Foundation, New
International Version - copyrightę New York International Bible Society,
New King James Version - copyrightę Thomas Nelson Publishers. Who
with a brain, would seriously think the word of Almighty God is
"BOUND" by copyright laws?
IF YOU HAVE
A KING JAMES BIBLE
YOU HAVE THE WORD OF GOD!
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?"
