The Fallacy of Thinking People Can Be Saved
Through the Modern Alexandrian Bible Versions

By David J. Stewart | June 2017

1st Peter 1:23, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.”

       It is a fallacy to think that anybody can be saved through the Devil's counterfeit Bible versions. Many churchgoers have been led astray by Evangelist Sam Gipp, who denies the inspiration of the King James Bible. See: The Wickedness Of Evangelist Sam Gipp And Pastor Keith Gomez: Denying The Name Of Jesus!!! Watch out for Sam Gipp's teachings, because they are sometimes dangerous. Dr. Sam Gipp's Bizarre Rapture Doctrine (he says dead in Christ will be raised 40 days before the living). I am leery these days of anything Sam Gipp has to say. Be careful of his teachings!

Dr. Gipp errantly states...

“Generally, the facts surrounding the gospel of Jesus Christ and the simplicity of salvation are found intact even in the grossest perversions of Scripture.”

SOURCE: Evangelist Sam Gipp;

That is simply NOT TRUE!!! NO ONE can be saved from corrupted Scripture, so says our text Verse from 1st Peter 1:23. Let me explain the big problem, and there are two major problems with this error in thinking:


Many people try to defend the Alexandrian revisions, by lifting out a small handful of Scriptures to piece together the Gospel. But what THEY DON'T TELL YOU is that if you actually compare passage with passage in the corrupt modern versions, you'll end up with a nightmare for a Gospel. You'll end up with a mutation of the truth, a retarded plan of salvation, a monstrosity of theology. Let's prove it right now:

Let's begin with Romans 10:9 in the Easy-To-Read Version (ERV), which states...

KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB) — Romans 10:9-10,  “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” [emphasis added]

EASY-TO-READ VERSION (ERV) — Romans 10:9-10, “If you openly say, 'Jesus is Lord' and believe in your heart that God raised him from death, you will be saved. Yes, we believe in Jesus deep in our hearts, and so we are made right with God. And we openly say that we believe in him, and so we are saved.” [emphasis added]

Now let's look at Hebrews 6:1 from the ERV...

KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB) — Hebrews 6:1, “Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God.” [emphasis added]

EASY-TO-READ VERSION (ERV) — “So we should be finished with the beginning lessons about Christ. We should not have to keep going back to where we started. We began our new life by turning away from the evil we did in the past and by believing in God.” [emphasis added]

Let's also look at 1st John 3:9 in the ERV...

KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB)—1st John 3:9, “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.”

EASY-TO-READ VERSION (ERV)—1st John 3:9, “Those who are God’s children do not continue to sin, because the new life God gave them stays in them. They cannot keep sinning, because they have become children of God.”

And let's take a look at Mark 1:15 in the ERV...

KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB) — Mark 1:15, “And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. [emphasis added]

EASY-TO-READ VERSION (ERV) — Mark 1:15, “He said, “The right time is now here. God’s kingdom is very near. Change your hearts and lives, and believe the Good News![emphasis added]

So from reading these passages, any normal person would be led to believe that God won't save them unless they turn away from sinful bad habits, change their life, do not continue living in open sin, and make Jesus the Master (Lord) of their life. Folks, THAT IS NOT THE GOSPEL as taught in the King James Bible.

Yet, someone like Sam Gipp will try to establish a claim that people can still be saved through the “grosset perversions of Scripture.” Absolutely not! No Sir, it will never happen! It is ridiculous to attempt to say that a person can be saved, in lieu of massive doctrinal corruption. Which leads me to the second big problem with errantly thinking that people can be saved through corruptible word...


What I do see happen oftentimes is that a person who is familiar with the King James Bible, and rightly understands the Gospel, will lift out a handful of passages from the modern versions and say, “Look, someone could get saved from this verses.” But they're piggybacking on the incorruptible King James Bible!!! If all they had were the modern Alexandrian revisions, and they had never seen a King James Bible, they would never find the Gospel, unless they totally ignored all of the corruptions I just shared with you, and hundreds more!!!

Only a darn fool would speculate that someone can be saved from such utter perversions of the Scriptures. That's like looking for something good to eat in a rotting maggot infested garbage pail. That's like saying that it is okay to drive a school bus from point A to point B, even though there are a dozen major safety issues (a broken windshield, leaking brake calipers, loose steering linkage, no vacuum assist for the brakes, inoperative taillights, et cetera). Need I go on? The modern Bible versions are CORRUPT!!! They are really bad!!! They ALL pervert what it means to repent, and how to be saved!!!

If the King James Bible were forever taken away, and all we had left were the Alexandrian Bible versions, no one would ever get saved again!!! How could they, with all of the corruptions that I just shared with you? I showed you the Easy-To-Read Version (ERV), but the SAME corruptions appear in the NIV, ESV, VOICE, CSB, HCSB, LB, CEV, TNIV, and all the modern PERversions of God's Word!!! Jeremiah 23:36b, “for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.”

Do You Love the Truth?

2nd Thessalonians 2:10 tells us the reason why the masses of this world will be deceived and follow after the Antichrist when he comes... “BECAUSE THEY RECEIVED NOT THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH, THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED”!!! If they would have loved the truth, they would have believed the Gospel, and so they also would have been raptured. Instead, they were left behind, and now they will follow the Antichrist! Many of those masses of people left behind will be THE CHURCHES. All of the Lordship Salvation churches will be left behind, because THEY RECEIVED NOT THE LOVE OF THE TRUTH, THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED”!!! Go ahead, don't listen to me—trust in your changed life, forsaking evil ways and confessing Christ. Good luck with that! The satanic new Bible versions are fueling the heresy of Lordship Salvation. I am telling you the truth my friends, will you heed the warning?

“You can sit there and say, 'Oh, well, you just took it too far. You just took King James onlyism too far!' Well, you know what brother, you can't take it far enough, when they're pushing all these false versions, and all the bookstores, and the Christian bookstores, and all of your big name preachers are all preaching false versions! You know, we need to stand our ground on this issue!!!” —a great quote by Pastor Steven Anderson from the awesome sermon, Saved By The Word” | MP3)

It is so simply and easy to be saved that most people walk right past the narrow gate. Few there be that find it (Matthew 7:13-14). They're looking for a big fancy door into a big fancy religion. They're looking for a religious door that makes them feel spiritual. They're looking for a door with an entrance policy, who won't let you in unless you're clean-shaven, sober, moral and intend to live a clean life if they let you in.

They're looking for a door with flashing neon lights, something spectacular. None of these doors lead to life. The only door into Heaven is Jesus, a little pathway, which is obscured by the all the other attractive gates, religious entrances, big doors and bright paths with their owners clamoring for their attention, shouting “Enter here!,” “No, over here, come in here!” Little do most people realize that Satan owns all those buildings! All except one, that little humble path, Jesus!

I often feel lonely standing for the truth, when hardly anyone stands. Most pastors, churches and Bible colleges today don't have any interest in debating which Bible is God's Word. So they just support all of the Bibles, not exposing or criticizing any of them. The reason why they lack that passion is because they lack faith. If we truly believe Psalms 138:2, that God magnifies His Word above all His name, then we would care. I CARE! The Bible is very important. Even the slightest subtle changes alter the meaning of a passage of Scripture considerably. Woe unto today's pastors who don't care, just going along to get along.

I picture nearly all of today's churches as being aboard a big ship. On the side of the ship it reads, “Mainstream Evangelicalism!” There are hundreds of Bible versions aboard the ship. There are dozens of different plans of salvation taught by evangelicals like John MacArthur, Rick Warren, Chip Ingram, Ray Comfort, William Lane Craig, Paul Washer, Billy Graham and others onboard. Everybody aboard the ship is going along to get along. Nobody exposes or criticizes each other. Everybody is comfortable, enjoying all the splendors of the luxury ship. They all draw near to God with their mouths, and honor God with their lips, but their heart is far from Him, teaching manmade doctrines. This ship's captain is Lucifer! Anything goes on Lucifer's ship. It doesn't matter which Bible version you use. It doesn't matter which plan of salvation that you choose to believe. Everybody is taken care of and prospering.

Have you been deceived? What satanic imposter are you holding in your hand at church on Sunday? Boy, of ever there was a lie, it's the following translation from the ERV. Notice how they deceitfully changed the Word of God to exonerate themselves. They are corrupting God's Word, which is what 2nd Corinthians 2:17 warns against in the KJB. So the ERV changed it to “selling God's Word for profit” instead! The ERV company, World Bible Translation Center (WBTC) is in trouble with God for corrupting His Word. It's not a sin to sell God's Word, it's a sin to corrupt it, whether you sell it or not . . .

KING JAMES BIBLE (KJB) — 2nd Corinthians 2:17, “For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.”

EASY-TO-READ VERSION (ERV) — 2nd Corinthians 2:17, “Certainly not those who are out there selling God’s message for a profit! But we don’t do that. With Christ’s help we speak God’s truth honestly, knowing that we must answer to him.” [emphasis added]

Just as there is a Biblical curse upon every false Gospel, so also is there a curse upon anyone who changes the Word of God, and the foolish pastors who uses such corrupted Bible versions are cursing their congregation, and bringing God's curse upon them as well.

2nd Corinthians 2:17, “For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.”

1st Kings 18:17, “And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel?

“Repentance don't save you. Calling on the Lord don't save you. You know what saves you? Receiving what Christ done for you on the cross!” —Pastor Danny Castle, a quote from the needful MP3 sermon, "WHY THERE'S A HELL!

“The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.” —Psalms 68:11

Why There's A Hell (MP3 sermon by Pastor Danny Castle)

“In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not THE GOSPEL of our Lord Jesus Christ.” —2nd Thessalonians 1:8
