Why Would Someone Who
Truly Loves Jesus
Christ, Support Corrupt Bibles That Reduce Him?
By David J. Stewart | February 2020
1st Peter 2:7, “Unto you therefore which believe he is precious...”
Dear reader, I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I am far from perfect, God knows. In fact, I don't have a single fault! That's exactly right—I have MANY faults! In fact, I have too many faults to count! Jesus said unto whom much is forgiven, the same loveth much. I have been forgiven of MUCH by my blessed Savior; and therefore, I LOVE JESUS MUCH! I love others with God's unconditional love, because God has forgiven me. I am so unworthy of His love and grace, but His precious blood paid for my sins (1st Peter 1:18-19).
And because I love Jesus, He is precious to me! 1st Peter 2:5-7a, “Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Unto you therefore which believe he is precious...” I love the King James Bible, because it justly exalts, honors and magnifies the precious Lord Jesus Christ!
The King James Bible says that a leper WORSHIPPED JESUS in Matthew 8:2, “And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.” In every place where the inspired King James Bible says that someone “WORSHIPPED” Jesus, the modern revisions merely say that people “KNELT” or “BOWED” to Jesus. This is evil what they did, taking away worship that Jesus is entitled to! Now, if you love Jesus like I do, then this ought to make you upset! Do you seriously have no problem with a so-called “more accurate” and “better” Bible version that removes every mention of people WORSHIPPING the blessed Savior? That one alteration by itself is enough reason for me to adamantly reject the Devil's modern Bibles!
Psalm 119:104, “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.” Since I became a born-again Christian at age 13, I have only used the King James Bible, which is the inspired Word of God. So when the Devil's crowd published a bunch of so-called “more accurate” and “improved” Bible revisions, I saw how messed up they are! For example: Take a look at the Southern Baptist Convention's appalling new 2017 'Christian Standard Bible' (CSB), which is gender-neutral. No thanks Devil, you can keep your gender-bending Bible version! What right do men have to change the inspired Words of almighty God to adhere to the political agendas of our wicked generation? The LGBTQ homosexual agenda is of the Devil.
Deuteronomy 4:2, “Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.” Like it or not, homosexuality is a vile, abnormal and wicked sin, and God hates it! God hates effeminacy in males! God hates masculinity in females! God hates for women to become preachers, usurping authority in the church! God hates adultery! God hates drunkenness! God hates all sin! And like it or not, God authored the Bible with a masculine voice, because men are supposed to be in charge of everything, not women! In every case where women are appointed to power, evil ensues! SHAME ON THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION for corrupting God's Word!
I only want a Holy Bible that magnifies, respects, honors and exalts my Savior, not diminishes Who He really is—God in the flesh! I'm just getting started exposing the Devil's counterfeit revisions my friend! Why do church leaders and Bible college professors sanction, use, support and sell the Devil's counterfeit Bible versions? It doesn't take a rocket scientist nor a theologian, to see that something is VERY wrong with the modern Bibles. Any honest observer can clearly see a deliberate effort in the Alexandrian revisions to attack, diminish and eliminate the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ! The only logical answer why today's religious leaders tolerate these modern versions is because THEY DON'T LOVE JESUS AS THEY OUGHT! Why would you want a Bible version that removes the Trinity from 1st John 5:7? Why would you want a Bible that removes the word “Godhead” from Romans 1:20, Acts 17:29 and Colossians 2:9? I'm not kidding, literally, here is what the English Standard Version (ESV) which Bob Jones University sanctions, uses and sells reads:
ENGLISH STANDARD VERSION (ESV) - Romans 1:20, “For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.”
KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB) - Romans 1:20, “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”
The Word “GODHEAD” means something entirely different than “DIVINE NATURE”! The word GODHEAD is a specific reference to the Triune existence of God; whereas, DIVINE NATURE could mean literally anything! The term GODHEAD clearly refers to GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON and GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT. In this example we plainly see how the King James Bible lends itself to promoting sound doctrine in the churches; whereas the modern revisions promote a form of spirituality that drifts away from theology! The doctrine of Christ is the very foundation of Christianity!
It's so obvious when you consider that ALL of the modern Bible revisions attack the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. Look at what the Alexandrian manuscripts do to 1st John 5:7. Look what they do to 1st Timothy 3:16. Folks, I am giving you PROOF! Here, take a look at Matthew 8:2 and compare versions. Take a look at Psalms 12:6-7. How about Acts 8:37? Hey, here's a corruption I'll bet you've never seen, from Proverb 25:23. In fact, did you know that the New International Version 2011 differs in content from the NIV 1984 by 38.8%? You couldn't make this stuff up! Why, Oh why, do churches support this Satanic deception? Revelation 12:9, “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” Have you also believed a lie?
In 1st Timothy 3:16, the inspired King James Bible proclaims that “GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH,” which is a direct attestation of Jesus' deity, that He is God almighty! Yet, ALL of the Alexandrian based modern revisions change this lovely passage to merely say stupid things like: “HE WAS REVEALED AS A HUMAN” (this is what the Common English Bible reads). The Living Bible (TLB) reads: “CHRIST, WHO CAME TO EARTH AS A MAN.” Why did they remove “GOD” in these revisions? In fact, they remove the reference to “GOD” in nearly all of the Alexandrian revisions! In fact, every KEY PASSAGE of Scripture concerning Christ's deity has been corrupted in the Alexandrian versions! The reason why is obvious, because not everyone loves Jesus, nor do they believe that He is God almighty!
The heathen religious world is always attacking the deity of Jesus and the Godhead! There is a heathen religious world you know? Jesus said in Matthew 6:7, “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.” There you have it—heathen people PRAY! Wow! Did you ever see that Scripture before? I shudder in my soul every time I read it, because it blows my mind that a person could be religious, but still hellbound in their sins without the new birth. Truly, religion is the worst thing that ever happened to this world! I'm sure that you've seen thousands of unsaved Muslims praying prostrate on the ground. Muslims deny that Jesus is God's only begotten Son, and they vehemently reject Him, denying that Jesus even died on a cross. They deny Him as their Messiah, as do most of the Jews also! Tragically, BOTH Jews and Arabs will embrace the coming Antichrist as their Messiah, “because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved” (2nd Thessalonians 2:10b).
A Little Theological Poison is All it Takes To Kill a Soul
I don't understand why any pastor of a church, who is supposed to be a man who WALKS WITH GOD, would tolerate this blatant assault against our blessed Savior? Granted, some passages of Scripture are easier to understand in the modern versions, which fact Satan has exploited to simultaneously corrupt key passages concerning the doctrine of Christ. There is no mistaking it! The same is true of Pastor John MacArthur, who makes some brilliant theological insights, and I love his strong leadership qualities; but when it comes to the plan of salvation, Mr. MacArthur goes horribly astray! John MacArthur does a brilliant job exposing the Charismatic Movement. He does an excellent job exposing alcoholism, the cults, and is a world-renowned orator in the pulpit. I see why so many pastors love and follow him. Unfortunately, those pastors all lack spiritual discernment, and I fear nearly all of them have never experienced the new birth.
Likewise, the modern Bible revisions do make some passages of Scripture clearer, but at the same time they woefully render other passages silly, meaningless and downright heresy! For example: Here again is the ungodly English Standard Version (ESV) which Bob Jones University shamefully sanctions, sells and promotes...
ENGLISH STANDARD VERSION (ESV) - Psalm 9:17, “The wicked shall return to Sheol, all the nations that forget God.”
KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB) - Psalm 9:17, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”
Dear reader, the ESV makes no sense at all. Why would God return the wicked to THE REALM OF THE DEAD (which is what the Hebrew word “SHEOL” means)? What would be the point in saying that? Big deal, the wicked go to the place of the dead, because so also do the righteous! Really, think how stupid this translation is! Why would the Bible warn, that all the nations who forget God, will be returned to the grave? Huh? That makes no sense at all, does it? But the King James Bible makes perfect sense—THE WICKED ARE GOING TO HELL!!!
On and on, I could give you more examples of the Devil's handiwork! What is wrong with pastors, churches and Bible colleges today, that they sinfully promoted these corrupt PERversions of the Bible. They ought to called the New International Version (NIV) the “NON-INSPIRED VERSION”! Perhaps it would be better abbreviated as the H.I.V. Bible! There can only be one reason for the massive complicity worldwide with these demonic Bible revisions—THE LOVE OF MONEY!
If You Love Jesus, Then You Must Love the Inspired Word of God
Jesus is the Living Word of God, the Bible is the Written Word of God. Evangelist John R. Rice (1895-1980) used to call them “TWINS.” In Revelation 19:13, Jesus is called: “THE WORD OF GOD”! In John 1:1-3 and verse 14, we learn that the eternal Word of God became INCARNATE (in the flesh), the man, Jesus. As a man, the incarnate Word of God walked among humanity!
Here's another tragic corruption in the modern revisions. This time let's compare John 8:58 between The Living Bible (TLB) and the accurate King James Bible (KJB). This is another example of how the modern revisions remove the Trinity, attacking Christ's deity...
THE LIVING BIBLE (TLB) - John 8:58, “Jesus: 'The absolute truth is that I was in existence before Abraham was ever born!'”
KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB) - John 8:58, “Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. ”
Do you see what they did? Those wicked translators removed the great, I AM! Exodus 3:14, “And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.” So when Jesus called Himself the “I AM” in John 8:58, He was directly claiming to be almighty God!!! For The Living Bible to say that Jesus existed before Abraham doesn't mean He is God, but to call Himself the “I AM” certainly DOES!!! I often hear woefully ignorant people challenging the deity of Jesus, asking WHERE Jesus said He is God. Well, I just showed you one, if you have a King James Bible. Do you see how Satan is changing the doctrine of the churches, incrementally, preparing them for the diabolical New World Order?
Psalm 119:104, “Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.” As a born-again believer, I know that the Trinity is 100% true! Anyone who denies the triune nature of God is not saved. That eliminates Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Christian Science, Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, Armstrongism, Christadelphians, Oneness Pentecostals, Unification Church (Moonies), Unity School Of Christianity, and Scientology, to name but a few Satanic religious cults that deny the Godhead! So as a God-fearing Christian who loves my blessed Savior, I see the utter importance of upholding the incorruptible seed preserved in the inspired King James Bible. I also see that the Devil is a master con-artist, a shady Bible salesman, who peddles his corruptible seed in the modern Bible revisions (which all attack the doctrine of Christ, removing the Trinity)! Well don't just sit there, get up, and yell in your church on Sunday: “I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!” (MP3).
If you truly love Jesus, as I do, then you'll get upset like I do! I am tired of the Devil's crowd changing the inspired Words of God, altering them to fit the whims of this wicked and perverse generation! I don't claim to be a good Christian, but I do love my precious Savior. I'm not all that I should be, but God knows that I am sincere in my love for THE TRUTH, and a humble desire to HELP OTHERS find that truth.
