Brief Look at KJV, NIV, NASB, and New World Bible: Sampling of Scriptures
OK, I had some great comments from the last time I showed you some bible verse comparisons between the KJV and others. I have one or two more here that compare the KJV to NIV, NASB, and the New World Bible. Now I will tell you ahead of time that there has been a constant effort in those who wish to establish a one world religion to remove strong language in the Bible, change our vocabulary, and alter our doctrines in order to make it easier for professing Christians to be more tolerant of other pagan beliefs and other religious practices. The effort is to join east to west and lay the foundation of this New World Order that we know will be eventually ruled by the Antichrist.
“Certain words have gathered theological significance through the years and to change them might be to change doctrine… Do the changes in meanings come from new evidence or simply NEW THEOLOGY.” (Foster)
If subtle changes were then made to the meaning of a word, we could change the word without offending anyone, or we could also choose to use the word and correct the previous meaning. If we say used the word “Christ” then the Christian would assume that we are speaking of Jesus Christ. Then we could use the term Christ as we saw fit. So Christ could actually mean “the One”. At the surface this does not seem like a bad thing, and we could reach a commonality in the term Christ and, the One. On the surface this seems totally acceptable. If anyone argued, we could accuse them of being a hater or an extremist and ostracize them from the norm of society.
On a deeper look we can see in new versions of the bible that where the KJV refers to He (God the Father), or the Holy One the newer versions simply say “The One”. This is the same term used by Universalist and Luciferians to refer to the unknown power that binds the universe, and is seen as a part of the universe. In the New World religion, you will become “one” with the power of the universe when you leave this earth, you trade your mortality for immortality, no sin to worry about. No punishment from God, because we are all a part of “The One” energy of the universe. Thus God cannot judge anyone. He accepts us all, no repentance is needed. This is a lie from Satan, and it is leading billions to damnation and the lake of fire.
In the meantime, the One Word Religion has separated the name of Jesus from the identity of the Christ or Messiah. One step removed. Then someone can easily say that they believe in Jesus. But this does not mean that one believes in Jesus as the Son of God, or the Messiah who was prophesied to come. Instead, Jesus becomes a good man, or a great teacher, maybe even a prophet of great importance. His message becomes a philosophy of love and universal acceptance from god. Since he is no longer the Son of God, then he does not necessarily represent the God of Moses, who calls himself the “I AM”. Instead God becomes a universal principle and not a true persona. If God then is not God, then Jesus Christ is not the only way to him, or to eternal life. In fact, God has nothing to do with real eternal life, if Jesus is not the Son of God. What a complex lie has been weaved to entrap the world.
Once this is done then we need only refer to Jesus in impersonal pronouns instead of his name Jesus of Nazareth, or his title Jesus Christ. We have effectively removed all deity, identity, and relevance to the name of Jesus. Yet for those who still need his acknowledgement we can say that we believe in him, we of course mean that we believe in his ideas. This is the way of the New World, One World Religion (Luciferians). We have not even discussed how to change the meaning of the word “Christ”, but you can see the potentially dangerous slope that we venture on. While Christians argue about which Bible version is the true word of God and confusing the masses, we expose the flock of Jesus Christ to these evil minded antichrists. I want to call your attention back up to the quote from Mr. Foster, notice that they are not talking about just taking the “oldest and best” manuscripts and making sure that they are given a word for word translation. Now I know some of you are saying, you can never have a word for word translation from one language to the next. This is a truth I will not argue, however; you can have an honest Spirit led, God fearing, best effort in translating an accurate reading of the text. What this guy is talking about in this Luciferian scandal is to ignore the text, and change the meaning to fit what they want it to say. This is a transliteration, not a translation.
When a preacher opens up the King James Bible on Sunday morning and begins to read and to preach, he is taking a trusted translation of the Bible and sharing in confidence that this Word has been tested with over 400 years of blood, sweat, and tears. This version of the Bible had been a grand influence in bringing hundreds of thousands to believe on Jesus Christ as the Son of God. This version is what most people heard around the English speaking world who have led people under the direction of the Holy Spirit into a personal, loving relationship with the God the Father. This version is what tells us that those who are saved are done so by the grace of God alone, and that we are adopted children of the God of all Creation. God is not a part of creation, or a universal principle. God the Creator, exists, and for over 400 years, this has been the Bible that has told us the truth.
Now suddenly we are told all of the translators were untrustworthy, uneducated, and charlatans. We are told how the King of England forced them to change the meanings of the text to suit his needs. We are told that it is too difficult for the average believer to read and understand. I think we have listened to too much Catholic influence. The text on most new bibles comes from the very source text that the Catholic church uses for it’s Bible, which is not the one used by the King James Version. These lies and hiding of the text, twisting the word, and only letting the “ordained” read the text and give interpretation are all hallmarks of a cult mentality.
This preacher we mentioned earlier who opens the Authorized Version (AV) and reads and expands upon the scriptures. This God fearing man who brings a message after careful study, heavy prayer and who is relying on the indwelling Holy Spirit to teach him, is now given the weighty task of teaching others. But he is reading the translation to them, then, and only then does he attempt his explanation. He does not just tell them, this is what the Lord says. No, he reads to them what the Lord has said, then he explains to them what the Lord has given him concerning the text. The individual believer is then responsible to search the scriptures themselves to determine in the Holy Spirit whether what the preacher has said is true. This is not the case with a bible that has been transliterated instead of translated. A transliterated Bible is one that the interpreter has stepped out of interpretation and started deciding what the text is meaning, instead of what it says. Often this is done to support the agenda of a particular cult. Jehovah Witness have admittedly done this with the New World Bible Translation.
The New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures does not follow this common practice. It uses the name Jehovah a total of 237 times in the Christian Greek Scriptures. In deciding to do this, the translators took into consideration two important factors: (1) The Greek manuscripts we possess today are not the originals. Of the thousands of copies in existence today, most were made at least two centuries after the originals were composed. (2) By that time, those copying the manuscripts either replaced the Tetragrammaton with Kyʹri·os, the Greek word for “Lord,” or they copied from manuscripts where this had already been done. (Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania)
You need to get busy in your own research, stop being bullied into submission. I think that it is funny that we hear preachers say that you cannot understand the King James, or the 1911 bible. I also want to make note that this is the same excuse the Roman Catholic Church used to gain control of the entire Roman world. They told everyone that they could not properly understand they text of the Bible, (which by the way is the same one your using in a new version), and that it needed to be explained to you by those who were closest to God. I think that preposterous.
The Authorized, 1911, KJVs are still written in what is considered modern English, and were written at what we consider a 6-8 grade reading level, depending upon the study. I want to also remind you that it was written so that the common people could read the text themselves. These common people did not go to school. So what you are saying, is that, even though you went to 12 years of school under the modern “enlightenment” we live in, you cannot read a bible that the common people with no formal education could read. I don’t think that the problem is with the reading level of the version, it is somewhere else. A little bit more, most new versions of the Bible start at an 8th grade reading level.
Now we see the confusion of the text, and the confusion of the words in the text, and then we have the influx of the New World terminology. Remember the difference that the purposely separating the name of Jesus from his title Christ did in changing doctrine. This is what Mr. Foster was speaking of in the above quote. As a part of this changing of meanings of words and making them irrelevant we can then just drop some of them. Words proper references like Lucifer, the Dragon, Diana, devils, and Satan can then be omitted or changed to more generic terms that still allow the Luciferian to tell the Christian that “we all believe in the same God”. Even though, when you look at the meaning of their terminology, it is painfully clear that we do not! Now that we are all questioning the authority of the “original” texts, the literacy of the language, and the meaning of the words use, we can edit, or delete portions of the scriptures that are no longer valid, or could be misleading to our cause. No one would be any smarter, and no one would even care. If anyone did raise a fuss, we can just tell them that they are ignorant, and do not know as much as we do. We can even train their pastors and teachers coming out of seminary, confusing them right out of the gate. Progressive liberalism, comes from the changing of the text.
Finally, here are some examples for you to consider.
|REFERENCE||AUTHORISED VERSION (KJV)||NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION (NIV)||NEW AMERICAN STANDARD VERSION (NASV)||NEW WORLD TRANSALTION (NTW)|
|Matthew 18:11||For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.||Omitted||Subjective foot note||Omitted|
|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.||“Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”||And He said to him, “Why are you asking Me about what is good? There is only One who is good; but if you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.”||He said to him: “Why do you ask me about what is good? One there is who is good. If, though, you want to enter into life, observe the commandments continually.”|
|Luke 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.||Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only. Omitted Satan||Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God and serve Him only.’” Omitted Satan||In reply Jesus said to him: “It is written, ‘It is Jehovah your God you must worship, and it is to him alone you must render sacred service.’ Omitted Satan|
|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.||Subjective foot note||Subjective foot note||omitted|
These are only a small sampling of hundreds of scriptures. I might add also that different versions of the NIV, NASB, and NWT treat the verses differently. Some versions will include omitted verses or phrases, some do not. This should also be a testimony of the lack of reliability of the text in those versions. The acceptance of these translations in the church has weekend the church and kept believers in a shroud of darkness and insecurity. The bold passion that believers in Jesus Christ had is non-existent in the church today. Church pews sit empty while supposed believers are out exploring New Age religions and philosophies. Pagan religions are practiced in many “Christian” homes. Christians seek out their fortune with palm readers and astrological charts in the newspapers or online fortune tellers. This is the very sin that God allow Saul to be killed over.
Instead of reading their Bibles to get wisdom from God and his word, they seek out philosophies, and eastern mysticisms to guide their way. Instead of seeking to live sanctified lives and becoming more like Jesus Christ and God their Father, they are trying to become one with the FORCE. Shame is brought upon the church. They wonder why they cannot win someone to Christ. I will tell you why, a lot of people who “profess to believe” actually do not. They themselves are still searching for God. This is in large part because they are not being taught the whole counsel of God. This discussion we are having here is a major reason. The enemy has done what he always does. He perverts the truth. Mixes lies with truth and causes doubt.
This is what Satan, that old serpent, did to Eve in the Garden of Eden at the very beginning. That devil caused Eve to doubt what God had said, and why he said it. He gave her his transliteration of the word of God. The devil has always caused us to question – what God said, and so do his children. Peter warns us that these days would come. “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. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.” (2 Peter 2:1-2) Wow! Peter says that even then there were false teachers among them. While the Apostles were still alive, false teachers were already twisting their words, and changing doctrines. We must take this seriously.
The Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy and told him that he should refrain from being in the presence of false teachers. (1 Timothy 6:3-5) We should not fellowship with those who spread these false doctrines. They cannot be referred to as Christian if they deny the deity of Jesus Christ. I will leave you this last scripture to meditate on.
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: 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 4:1-3)
