1. Since you're smart enough to find
"mistakes" in the KJV, why don't you correct them all and give us a
2. Do you have a perfect Bible?
3. Since you do believe "the Bible" is
our final authority in all matters of faith and practice, could
you please show us where Jesus, Peter, James, Paul, or John ever
practiced your terminology ("the Greek text says...the Hebrew text
says....the originals say...a better rendering would be....older
manuscripts read...." etc.)?
4. Since you do not profess to have a
perfect Bible, why do you refer to it as "God's word"?
5. Remembering that the Holy Spirit is
the greatest Teacher (John 16:12-15; I John 2:27), who taught you that
the King James Bible was not infallible, the Holy Spirit or man?
6. Since you do believe in the
degeneration of man and in the degeneration of the world system in
general, why is it that you believe education has somehow "evolved"
and that men are more qualified to translate God's word today than in
7. There is one true God, yet many false
gods. There is one true Church, consisting of true born-again
believers in Christ, yet there are many false churches. So why do you
think it's so wrong to teach that there is one true Bible, yet many
8. Isn't it true that you believe God
inspired His holy words in the "originals," but has since lost
them, since no one has a perfect Bible today?
9. Isn't it true that when you use the
term "the Greek text" you are being deceitful and lying, since there
are MANY Greek TEXTS (plural), rather than just one?
10. Before the first new perversion was
published in 1881 (the RV), the King James Bible was published,
preached, and taught throughout the world. God blessed these efforts
and hundreds of millions were saved. Today, with the many new
translations on the market, very few are being saved. The great
revivals are over. Who has gained the most from the new versions, God

The King James Bible is supposedly
written in an "old and archaic language" that people today have

If you've checked these references, then
you can easily see how our all-wise God has played a beautiful joke on
the modern revisionists. People who do not even believe the KJV
quote it every day! Furthermore, if you'll grab yourself a NIV, a
NCV, a TEV, or anything else, you'll find that many of these modern
sayings have been destroyed by the "better language" of the Laodiceans.
For example, I always thought that when I
was a young boy my father and I crossed the Mississippi on a ferry
boat (II Sam. 19:18), but I guess we must have crossed
at the ford instead (NIV). Then there were times when I got out of
line and dad would really set me in my place (Neh. 13:11). Too
bad he didn't have a NIV, for he could have stationed me at my
post. I guess there was nothing dad loved more than going out
early on Saturday mornings and catching a mess of fish (Gen.
43:34). It's a good thing we didn't have a NKJV in those days, for he
would have only caught a serving. We usually had hushpuppies
with that fish dinner, but sometimes we just had light bread
(Num. 21:5). That is, until the neighbors came over with their New
American Bible. Then we had wretched food. Then dad would
always say, "Cheer up, son, it'll be better next time!" (Deu.
24:5) Too bad he didn't have a NKJV, for I'm sure he would have said,
"Come on, boy, bring happiness to yourself!"
So you get the point: the new versions
don't stand a chance when competing with the KJV to use the most
"modern" speech! Go ahead, have yourself some fun. Learn to
appreciate God's sense of humor! Grab a new translation and see first
hand how the modern versions are still stuck in the Dark Ages when it
comes to keeping up with modern speech.

If we are to believe what we hear from
the critics, then we must accept the notion that the italicized words
in the King James Bible do not belong. We are told that the words were
added by the translators and are not the words of God. If this is
true, then please explain why Luke, Paul, John, Peter, and even the
Lord Jesus QUOTE them! The column on the right shows how New Testament
writers and speakers QUOTE the King James italics of the Old
OLD TESTAMENT SCRIPTURE
NEW TESTAMENT QUOTE
|I have set the LORD
always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall
not be moved. (Psa. 16:8)
||For David speaketh
concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he
is on my right hand, that I should not be moved: (Acts 2:25)
|Thou shalt not muzzle
the ox when he treadeth out the corn. (Deu. 25:4)
||For it is written in the
law of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that
treadeth out the corn. Doth God take care for oxen? (I Cor. 9:9.
Also see I Tim. 5:18)
|And he humbled thee, and
suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou
knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee
know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word
that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live. (Deu.
||But he answered and
said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by
every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. (Mat. 4:4)
|I have said, Ye are
gods; and all of you are children of the most High. (Psa.
||Jesus answered them, Is
it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? (John 10:34)
|Therefore thus saith the
Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried
stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that
believeth shall not make haste. (Isa. 28:16)
||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. (I Pet. 2:6)
Did you notice that the New Testament
writers QUOTE the words in italics? This means they WERE actually in
the originals! When Jesus said, "It is written..." (Mat. 4:4), he was
saying that the word "word" was also written--even if the King
James translators didn't have it in the Hebrew Old Testament! Like
it or not, the Holy Spirit led them to use the word anyhow! If
He didn't, then why did Jesus quote it?
Also, we have the case of WHO killed
Goliath? II Samuel 21:19 in the KJV says: "And there was again a
battle in Gob with the Philistines, where Elhanan the son of
Jaareoregim, a Bethlehemite, slew the brother of Goliath the
Gittite, the staff of whose spear was like a weaver's beam."
The words "the brother of" are in italics. If these words were
omitted, then the Bible would say that Elhanan slew Goliath, instead
of his brother, which would contradict the fact that David killed
Goliath. (In fact, this is exactly how the New World Translation
reads!) If you'll check I Chronicles 20:5, you'll see that the italics
of II Samuel 21:19 are well justified. Moral: The English sheds
light on the English--WITHOUT "the Greek."
BACK TO TABLE
We hear much talk these days about
"older" and "more authoritative" manuscripts, but we aren't hearing
much about the origin of these manuscripts. It is a well
established fact that there are only two lines of Bibles: one coming
from Antioch, Syria (known as the Syrian or Byzantine type text), and
one coming from Alexandria, Egypt (known as the Egyptian or Hesycnian
type text). The Syrian text from Antioch is the Majority text from
which our King James 1611 comes, and the Egyptian text is the minority
text from which the new perversions come. (Never mind Rome and her
Western text, for she got her manuscripts from Alexandria.)
The manuscripts from Antioch were mostly
copied by Bible-believing Christians for the purpose of winning souls
and spreading the word of God. The manuscripts from Alexandria were
produced by infidels such as Origen Adamantius and Clement of
Alexandria. These manuscripts are corrupted with Greek philosophy
(Col. 2:8), and allegorical foolishness (not believing God's word
literally). The strange thing is that most Christians aren't paying
any attention to what God's word says about these two places!
Notice how the Holy Spirit casts Egypt and Alexandria in a NEGATIVE
light, while His comments on Antioch tend to be very positive:
Egypt and Alexandria
1. Egypt is first mentioned in connection
with Abraham not trusting Egyptians around his wife (Gen. 12:10-13).
2. One of the greatest types of Christ in
the Bible was sold into Egypt as a slave (Gen. 37:36).>
3. Joseph did not want his bones left in
Egypt (Gen. 50:25).
4. God killed all the firstborn of Egypt
5. God calls Egypt "the house of bondage"
6. God calls Egypt an "iron furnace" (Deu.
7. The Kings of Israel were even
forbidden to get horses from Egypt (Deu. 17:16), so why should we look
there for a Bible?
8. The Jews were forbidden to go to Egypt
for help (Jer. 42:13-19).
9. God plans to punish Egypt (Jer.
10. God calls His Son out of Egypt (Hos.
11:1; Mat. 2:15).
11. Egypt is placed in the same category
as Sodom (Rev. 11:8).
12. The first time Alexandria is
mentioned in the Bible, it is associated with unbelievers,
persecution, and the eventual death of Stephen (Acts 6:9; 7:54-60).
13. The next mention of Alexandria
involves a lost preacher who has to be set straight on his doctrine
14. The last two times we read about
Alexandria is in Acts 27:6 and Acts 28:11. Here we learn that Paul was
carried to his eventual death in Rome by two ships from Alexandria .
Alexandria was the second largest city of
the Roman Empire, with Rome being the first. It was founded in 332
B.C. by Alexander the Great (a type of the Antichrist in Daniel 8).
Located at the Nile Delta, Alexandria was the home of the Pharos
Lighthouse, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient world. Also,
during the second and third centuries B.C., it was the home of a
massive library containing between 500,000 and 700,000 volumes. It was
also the home of a catechetical school once headmastered by the great
apostate Adamantius Origen (185-254 A.D.).
QUESTION: In light of what God's word
says about higher knowledge and philosophy (I Cor. 1:22; Rom. 1:22;
Gen. 3:5; Col. 2:8; I Cor. 8:1), why would any serious Christian
expect to find the true word of God in Alexandrian manuscripts?
1. Upon it's first mention, we find that
Antioch is the home of a Spirit-filled deacon (Acts 6:3-5). Do you
suppose it is a mere accident that the Holy Spirit first mentions
Antioch in the same chapter where He first mentions Alexandria?
2. In Acts 11:19, Antioch is a shelter
for persecuted saints.
3. The first major movement of the Holy
Ghost among the Gentiles occurs in Antioch (Acts 11:20-21).
4. Paul and Barnabas taught the Bible in
Antioch for a whole year (Acts 11:26).
5. The disciples were first called
"Christians" at Antioch (Acts 11:26).
6. The church at Antioch sends relief to
the poor saints at Jerusalem (Acts 11:27-30).
7. The first missionary journey is sent
out from Antioch (Acts 13:1-3).
8. Antioch remains the home base or
headquarters of the early church (Acts 14:19-26; 15:35).
9. The final decision of the Jerusalem
council was first sent to Antioch (Acts 15:19-23, 30), because Antioch
was the home base.
10. Antioch was the location of Paul
setting Peter straight on his doctrine (Gal. 2:11).
Founded in 300 B.C. by Seleucus Nicator,
Antioch was the third largest city of the Roman Empire. Located in
Syria, about twenty miles inland from the Mediterranean on the Orontes
River, Antioch had it's on sea port and more than it's share of
travelers and tradesmen. In His infinite wisdom, God picked the ideal
location for a "home base". Antioch was far enough away from the
culture and traditions of the Jews (Jerusalem and Judaea) and the
Gentiles (Rome, Greece, Alexandria, etc) that new Christians could
grow in the Lord. Meanwhile, it's geographical location was ideal for
taking God's word into all the world.
So, friend, you have a choice. You can
get your Bible from Alexandria, or you can get it from Antioch. If you
have a KJV, then your Bible is based on manuscripts from Antioch. If
you have a new version, then you are one of many unfortunate victims
of Satan's salesmen from Alexandria, Egypt.

When someone "corrects" the King James
Bible with "more authoritative manuscripts" or "older manuscripts," or
"the best authorities," they're usually making some reference to
Sinaiticus or Vaticanus. These are two very corrupt fourth century
uncials that are practically worshipped by modern scholars. These are
the primary manuscripts that Westcott and Hort relied so heavily on
when constructing their Greek text (1851-1871) on which the new
versions are based.
Vaticanus (B) is the most worshipped.
This manuscript was officially catalogued in the Vatican library in
1475, and is still property of the Vatican today. Siniaticus (Aleph)
was discovered in a trash can at St. Catherine's Monastery on Mt.
Sinai by Count Tischendorf, a German scholar, in the year 1844. Both B
and Aleph are Roman Catholic manuscripts. Remember that! You might
also familiarize yourself with the following facts:
1. Both manuscripts contain the Apocrypha
as part of the Old Testament.
2. Tischendorf, who had seen both
manuscripts, believed they were written by the same man, possibly
Eusebius of Caesarea (260-340 A.D.).
3. Vaticanus was available to the King
James translators, but God gave them sense enough to ignore it.
4. Vaticanus omits Geneses 1:1-46:28,
Psalm 106-138, Matthew 16:2-3, Rom. 16:24, I Timothy through Titus,
the entire book of Revelation, and it conveniently ends the book of
Hebrews at Hebrews 9:14. If you're familiar with Hebrews 10, you
5. While adding The Epistle of
Barnabas and The Shepherd of Hermas to the New Testament,
Siniaticus omits John 5:4, 8:1-11, Matthew 16:2-3, Romans 16:24, Mark
16:9-20, Acts 8:37, and I John 5:7 (just to name a few).
6. It is believed that Siniaticus has
been altered by as many as ten different men. Consequently, it is a
very sloppy piece of work (which is probably the reason for it being
in a trash can). Many transcript errors, such as missing words and
repeated sentences are found throughout it.
7. The Dutch scholar, Erasmus
(1469-1536), who produced the world's first printed Greek New
Testament, rejected the readings of Vaticanus and Siniaticus.
8. Vaticanus and Siniaticus not only
disagree with the Majority Text from which the KJV came, they also
differ from each other. In the four Gospels alone, they differ over
9. When someone says that B and Aleph are
the oldest available manuscripts, they are lying. There are many
Syriac and Latin translations from as far back as the SECOND CENTURY
that agree with the King James readings. For instance, the Pashitta
(145 A.D.), and the Old Syriac (400 A.D.) both contain strong support
for the King James readings. There are about fifty extant copies of
the Old Latin from about 157 A.D., which is over two hundred years
before Jerome was conveniently chosen by Rome to "revise" it. Then
Ulfilas produced a Gothic version for Europe in A.D. 330. The Armenian
Bible, which agrees with the King James, has over 1,200 extant copies
and was translated by Mesrob around the year 400. Sinaiticus and
Vaticanus are clearly NOT the oldest and best manuscripts.

Brooke Foss Westcott (1825-1901) and
Fenton John Anthony Hort (1828-1892) were the two English "scholars"
who produced the corrupt Greek text of the modern versions. Their
dominating influence on the revision committee of 1871-1881 accounts
for most of the corruption that we have today in modern translations.
The Bible believer should keep several points in mind when discussing
these two men. The following information is well documented in
Final Authority, by William Grady, and in Riplinger's New Age
1. Together, the Life and Letters of
Brooke Foss Westcott and the Life and Letters of Fenton John
Anthony Hort run over 1,800 pages. A personal salvation testimony
is not given once for either man, and the name "Jesus" is found only
2. Westcott was a firm believer in Mary
worship, and Hort claimed that Mary worship had a lot in common with
3. Hort believed in keeping Roman
4. Hort believed in baptismal
regeneration as taught in the Catholic church.
5. Hort rejected the infallibility of
6. Hort took great interest in the works
of Charles Darwin, while both he and Westcott rejected the literal
account of Creation.
7. Westcott did not believe in the Second
Coming of Christ, the Millennium, or a literal Heaven.
8. Both men rejected the doctrine of a
literal Hell, and they supported prayers for the dead in purgatory.
9. Hort refused to believe in the
10. Hort refused to believe in angels.
11. Westcott confessed that he was a
communist by nature.
12. Hort confessed that he hated
democracy in all it's forms.
13. Westcott also did his share of beer
drinking. In fact, only twelve years after the Revised Version was
published, Westcott was a spokesman for a brewery.
14. While working on their Greek text
(1851-1871), and while working on the Revision Committee for the
Revised Version (1871-1881), Westcott and Hort were also keeping
company with "seducing spirits and doctrines of devils" (I Tim.
4:1). Both men took great interest in occult practices and clubs.
They started the Hermes Club in 1845, the Ghostly Guild
in 1851, and Hort joined a secret club called The Apostles in
the same year. They also started the Eranus Club in 1872. These
were spiritualists groups which believed in such unscriptural
practices as communicating with the dead (necromancy).
15. The Westcott and Hort Greek text was
SECRETLY given to the Revision Committee.
16. The members of the Revision Committee
of 1881 were sworn to a pledge of secrecy in regard to the new Greek
text being used, and they met in silence for ten years.
17. The corrupt Greek text of Westcott
and Hort was not released to the public until just five days before
the debut of the Revised Version. This prevented Bible-believing
scholars like Dean Burgon from reviewing it and exposing it for the
piece of trash that it was.
QUESTION: Does this sound like an
HONEST work of God or a DISHONEST work of the Devil?

Unlike Westcott, Hort, and the R.V.
Committee, King James went through great efforts to guard the 1611
translation from errors. Please note the following:
1. In 1604, King James announced that
fifty-four Hebrew and Greek scholars had been appointed to translate a
new Bible for English speaking people. The number was reduced to
forty-seven by the time the work formally began in 1607.
2. Rather than working together all at
one location, these men were divided into six separate groups, which
worked at three separate locations. There were two at Westminster, two
at Oxford, and two at Cambridge.
3. Each group was given a selected
portion of Scripture to translate.
4. Each scholar made his own translation
of a book, and then passed it on to be reviewed by each member of his
5. The whole group then went over the
6. Once a group had completed a book of
the Bible, they sent it to be reviewed by the other five groups.
7. All objectionable and questionable
translating was marked and noted, and then it was returned to the
original group for consideration.
8. A special committee was formed by
selecting one leader from each group. This committee worked out all of
the remaining differences and presented a finished copy for the
printers in 1611.
9. This means that the King James Bible
had to pass at least FOURTEEN examinations before going to
10. Throughout this entire process, any
learned individuals of the land could be called upon for their
judgment, and the churches were kept informed of the progress.
QUESTION: Does THIS sound like an
HONEST work of God or a DISHONEST work of the Devil?

In this section, we have reprinted our
Let's Compare Bibles tract. Here you will see several good
examples of how modern Bible versions are attacking God's word. We
have selected eight modern translations for evaluation. The
translations evaluated are as follows:
NIV....... New International Version
NASB... New American Standard Bible
NRSV... New Revised Standard Version
REB...... Revised English Bible
LB......... Living Bible
NWT..... New World Translation
NAB ..... New American Bible
NKJV.... New King James Version
Although we have limited this study to
eight new translations, you will find many of these attacks manifested
in ANY new translation. You will find that some of the most important
doctrines of the Bible are being attacked in the new versions. Whether
you have a Living Bible, a New Century Version, a Revised Standard
Version, or any of the other perversions of Scripture, you are going
to see the Devil hard at work on the revision committees of the new
translations. The King James reading will appear first, followed by a
brief comment, and then the perverted readings of the modern
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.
The above promise from the King James
Bible tells us that God intends to preserve His WORDS forever.
Notice how the new versions destroy this promise by making you think
the context is God's PEOPLE rather than His WORDS:
NIV....... you will keep us safe
NASB... Thou wilt preserve him
NRSV... You, O Lord, will protect us
REB...... you are our protector
LB......... you will forever
preserve your own
NAB...... You, O Lord, will keep us
Therefore the Lord himself shall give
you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son,
and shall call his name Immanuel.
Notice how some new versions attack the
Virgin Birth of Christ by robbing Mary of her virginity. As anyone
well knows, a young woman or a maiden is NOT necessarily
NRSV... young woman
REB...... young woman
And Joseph and his mother
marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.
Here the new versions attack the Virgin
Birth by telling us that Joseph was Christ's father:
NIV....... The child's father
NASB... His father
NRSV... the child's father
REB...... The child's father
NWT..... its father
NAB...... the child's father
I Timothy 3:16
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.
Notice how the King James is very clear
in telling us WHO was manifest in the flesh: GOD was manifest in
the flesh. Now watch the new perversions throw God clear out
of the verse:
NIV....... He appeared in a body
NASB... He who was revealed in the flesh
NRSV... He was revealed in flesh
REB...... He was manifested in the flesh
LB......... who came to earth as a man
NWT..... He was made manifest in the
NAB...... He was manifested in the flesh
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.
This is a prophecy of the Lord Jesus
Christ, and the verse tells us that He had no beginning. As the Second
Member of the Trinity, He is ETERNAL, or from everlasting, but not in
most modern translations:
NIV....... from ancient times
NRSV... from ancient days
REB..... in ancient times
NWT.... from the days of time indefinite
NAB..... from ancient times (vs. 1)
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!
Revelation 22:16 tells us that Jesus
Christ is the "Morning Star". The King James Bible never gives
this title to anyone else. However, in some new versions, Jesus Christ
and Satan are the same, because some versions have taken the liberty
to call Satan the "morning star" in Isaiah 14:12. Although some
versions do not go so far as to call Satan the "morning star," they
still throw out the name "Lucifer".
NIV....... morning star
NASB... star of the morning
NRSV... Day Star
REB...... Bright morning star
NWT..... you shining one
NAB...... morning star
He answered and said, Lo, I see four
men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt;
and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.
This is an excellent Old Testament verse
which shows that Jesus Christ existed long before He was born in
Bethlehem. Naturally, the new versions will pervert it with pagan
NIV....... a son of the gods
NASB... a son of the gods
NRSV... a god
REB..... a god
LB........ a god
NWT.... a son of the gods
NAB..... a son of God (vs. 92)
In whom we have redemption through
his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Satan hates the Atoning Blood of the Lord
Jesus Christ, so we shouldn't be surprised to find the blood missing
in modern translations:
NIV....... redemption, the forgiveness of
NASB... redemption, the forgiveness of
NRSV... redemption, the forgiveness of
REB..... our release is secured and our
sins are forgiven
NWT.... we have our release by ransom,
the forgiveness of sins
NAB...... redemption, the forgiveness of
But why dost thou judge thy brother?
or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand
before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written, As I
live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue
shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of
himself to God.
If you'll read the above verses
carefully, you will notice how it magnifies Jesus Christ. According to
verse 10, we will stand before the Judgment Seat of CHRIST, and
verse 12 says that when we do we will give account to GOD. When we
stand before Jesus Christ we will be standing before God--an excellent
text on the Deity of Christ. Now watch as the new versions throw Jesus
Christ clear out of the passage by replacing the word "Christ" in
verse 10 with "God:"
NIV....... God's judgment seat
NASB... Judgment seat of God
NRSV... judgment seat of God
REB...... God's tribunal
LB......... Judgment Seat of God
NWT..... judgment seat of God
NAB...... judgment seat of God
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.
This verse is very important because it
places a definite condition upon water baptism: one must first
BELIEVE ON CHRIST. Many modern versions throw the entire verse out
of the Bible:
NIV....... entire verse missing
NRSV... entire verse missing
REB...... entire verse missing
NWT..... entire verse missing
NAB...... omits entire verse, but
re-numbers the verses so you won't miss it
II 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.
You can imagine how this verse must be a
thorn in the flesh to the modern translators who are busy CORRUPTING
the word of God day and night. So, do they repent of their sins and
get right with God? Of course not:
REB...... adulterating the word of God
NAB...... trade on the word of God
II Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved
unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly
dividing the word of truth.
This is the one command in the New
Testament to "study" and "rightly divide" God's word,
and the Devil does NOT appreciate it:
NIV....... Do your best...correctly
NASB... Be diligent...handling accurately
NRSV... Do your best...rightly explaining
REB...... Try hard...keep strictly to the
LB......... Work hard...Know what his
word says and means
NWT..... Do your utmost...handling the
word of truth aright
NAB...... Try hard...following a straight
course in preaching the truth
NKJV.... Be diligent...rightly dividing
I Timothy 6:20
O Timothy, keep that which is
committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and
oppositions of science falsely so called:
Many lies are being propagated today in
the name of "science" (evolution for example), but I Timothy 6:20 has
been warning us about it all along - except in the new perversions:
BACK TO TABLE
We will now give some special attention
to one of the deadliest translations on the market--the New King
James Version, first published in 1979. It is a deadly version
because it's editors have succeeded in deceiving the body of Christ on
two main points: (1) That it's a King James Bible (which is a lie),
and (2) that it's based on the Textus Receptus (which is only a
partial truth). The following information should be helpful when
dealing with Christians who have been swindled by the Laodicean lovers
of filthy lucre:
1. The text of the NKJV is copyrighted by
Thomas Nelson Publishers, while there is no copyright today on the
text of the KJV. If your KJV has maps or notes, then it may have a
copyright, but the text itself does not.
2. There's nothing "new" about the NKJV
logo. It is a "666" symbol of the pagan trinity which was used
in the ancient Egyptian mysteries. It was also used by Satanist
Aleister Crowley around the turn of this century. The symbol can be
seen on the New King James Bible, on certain rock albums (like Led
Zepplin's), or you can see it on the cover of such New Age books as
The Aquarian Conspiracy. (See Riplinger's tract on the NKJV.)
3. It is estimated that the NKJV makes
over 100,000 translation changes, which comes to over eighty
changes per page and about three changes per verse! A great number
of these changes bring the NKJV in line with the readings of such
Alexandrian perversions as the NIV and the RSV. Where changes are not
made in the text, subtle footnotes often give credence to the Westcott
and Hort Greek Text.
4. While passing off as being true to the
Textus Receptus, the NKJV IGNORES the Receptus over 1,200 times.
5. In the NKJV, there are 22 omissions of
"hell", 23 omissions of "blood", 44 omissions of "repent", 50
omissions of "heaven", 51 omissions of "God", and 66 omissions of
"Lord". The terms "devils", "damnation", "JEHOVAH", and "new
testament" are completely omitted.
6. The NKJV demotes the Lord Jesus
Christ. In John 1:3, the KJV says that all things were made "by" Jesus
Christ, but in the NKJV, all things were just made "through" Him. The
word "Servant" replaces "Son" in Acts 3:13 and 3:26. "Servant"
replaces "child" in Acts 4:27 and 4:30. The word "Jesus" is omitted
from Mark 2:15, Hebrews 4:8, and Acts 7:45.
7. The NKJV confuses people about
salvation. In Hebrews 10:14 it replaces "are sanctified" with "are
being sanctified", and it replaces "are saved" with "are being saved"
in I Corinthians 1:18 and II Corinthians 2:15. The words "may believe"
have been replaced with "may continue to believe" in I John 5:13. The
old straight and "narrow" way of Matthew 7:14 has become the
"difficult" way in the NKJV.
8. In II Corinthians 10:5 the KJV reads
"casting down imaginations", but the NKJV reads "casting down
arguments". The word "thought", which occurs later in the verse,
matches "imaginations", not "arguments". This change weakens the
9. The KJV tells us to reject a "heretick"
after the second admonition in Titus 3:10. The NKJV tells us to reject
a "divisive man". How nice! Now the Alexandrians and Ecumenicals
have justification for rejecting anyone they wish to label as
10. According to the NKJV, no one would
stoop so low as to "corrupt" God's word. No, they just "peddle" it (II
Cor. 2:17). The reading matches the Alexandrian versions.
11. Since the NKJV has "changed the truth
of God into a lie", it has also changed Romans 1:25 to read "exchanged
the truth of God for the lie". This reading matches the readings of
the new perversions, so how say ye it's a King James Bible?
12. The NKJV gives us no command to
"study" God's word in II Timothy 2:15.
13. The word "science" is replaced with
"knowledge" in I Timothy 6:20, although "science" has occurred in
every edition of the KJV since 1611! How say ye it's a King James
14. The Jews "require" a sign, according
to I Corinthians 1:22 (and according to Jesus Christ - John 4:48), but
the NKJV says they only "request" a sign. They didn't "request" one
when signs first appeared in Exodus 4, and there are numerous
places throughout the Bible where God gives Israel signs when they
haven't requested anything (Exo. 4, Exo. 31:13, Num. 26:10, I Sam.
2:34, Isa. 7:10-14, Luke 2:12, etc). They "require" a sign, because
signs are a part of their national heritage.
15. The King James reading in II
Corinthians 5:17 says that if any man is in Christ he is a new
"creature", which matches the words of Christ in Mark 16:15. The cross
reference is destroyed in the NKJV, which uses the word "creation."
16. As a final note, we'd like to point
out how the NKJV is very inconsistent in it's attempt to update the
language of the KJV. The preface to the NKJV states that previous
"revisions" of the KJV have "sought to keep abreast of changes in
English speech", and also that they too are taking a "further step
toward this objective". However, when taking a closer look at the
language of the NKJV, we find that oftentimes they are stepping
BACKWARDS! Please note a few examples of how well the NKJV has "kept
abreast of the changes in the English language":

Another counterfeit "KJV" is the New
Scofield Reference Bible (NSRB). "King James Version" is clearly
printed on the cover, but since when has it been safe to judge a book
by it's cover? Please note the following:
1. Dr. C.I. Scofield had been dead many
years when the NSRB was published in 1967. He would have never
approved of having his name on a "bible" that alters the text of the
KJV. The 1909 and 1917 editions of the Scofield Reference Bible do NOT
change the text. Therefore the NSRB of 1967 is NOT a Scofield Bible
and it is NOT a KJV.
2. Dr. Scofield would have never referred
to baptism as a "sacrament," but the NSRB takes the liberty to do so
in an Acts 8 footnote.
3. The NSRB changes the KJV with "better
readings" in over 6,500 places.
4. In the introduction to the NSRB, 1967
edition, E. Schuyler English tries to justify changing the KJV text
on the basis that Dr. Scofield saw the need to update his
reference Bible after only eight years. Yes, Dr. Scofield did update
his Bible after only eight years, but HE NEVER CHANGED THE TEXT!,
and he never granted anyone else permission to do so. Only the
NOTES were revised! (The Judgment Seat of Christ is going to be
very interesting to say the least!)
5. In many places the NSRB agrees with
the readings of the new translations, rather than the KJV, so it
cannot possibly be a KJV. For example, "a son of the gods" appears in
Daniel 3:25, rather than "the Son of God" (KJV). In Genesis 1:28, Adam
is told to "fill" the earth, instead of "replenish" it, which isn't
the same at all. A great reference to television and magazines is
destroyed when the NSRB replaces "pictures" with "stone idols" in
Numbers 33:52. Then, of course, the NSRB lines up right behind the ASV
in places like I Timothy 6:20, Acts 4:27, and Romans 1:25.
6. Dr. William Grady addresses the NSRB
in his book, Final Authority. His research includes the
following on page 316: "A random survey of the NSRB margins in
Philippians alone revealed a total of 29 changes from the King James
Bible. Of these, twenty-one (72%) were traced to either the RSV or the
NASV. The skeptic can ckeck it out for himself: Philippians 1:7, 8,
23, 27; 2:1, 15, 25, 27, 28; 3:1, 8, 17, 19, 20, 21; 4:3, 6, 14, 15,
21, and 22." The "New Scofield Reference Bible" in the
"King James Version" is NOT new, is NOT a Scofield
Bible, and it is certainly NOT a King James Version.

If someone decides to produce a "new
Bible version", then they must also convince Christians that there is
a NEED and a justifiable CAUSE for the new version. One of the
deceitful excuses being used today for producing new versions is that
the King James Bible has been revised several times since 1611, and
that a new revision is needed once again. While spreading this
piece of deceitful misinformation, the KJV critics hold their breath,
hoping that no one will be intelligent enough to ask for specific
details about these "revisions". The many revisions that have occurred
since 1881 bear NO RESEMBLANCE to the various EDITIONS of the KJV
prior to 1881. The modern revisors are just trying to justify their
There were only FOUR actual EDITIONS of
the King James Bible produced after 1611: 1629, 1638, 1762, and
1769. These were not translations (like the new versions SINCE
1881), and they really weren't even "revisions".
The 1629 edition was simply an effort to
correct printing errors, and two of the original King James
translators assisted in the work.
The 1638 edition of the KJV also dealt
with printing errors, especially words and clauses overlooked by the
printers. About 72% of the textual corrections in the KJV were done by
1638, only 27 years after the first printing.
Please bear in mind the fact that
printing was a very laborious task prior to 1800. Publishing a
flawless work was almost impossible. Even today, with computers and
advanced word processors, printing errors are still frequently made.
Imagine what it was like in the 1600's!
Then, in 1762 and 1769, two final
editions of the KJV were published. Both of these involved spelling
changes, which became necessary as the English language became
more stabilized and spelling rules were established.
There were no new translations,
and there were really no new revisions published in 1629, 1638,
1762, or 1769. These were simply EDITIONS of the 1611 KJV, which
corrected printing errors and spelling. Those who try to equate these
editions with the modern translations are just being deceitful or
stupid--or both. The many other so-called "revisions" of the
KJV that occurred in 1613, 1616, 1617, and 1743 are nothing more than
running changes and touch-up work at the printers. The REAL revisions
and translations do not start appearing until 1881 (RV) and 1901 (ASV).
So if some punk walks up with a smirky grin on his face and asks you,
"So which King James Bible do you have, the 1611, the 1629, the 1638,
the 1762, or the 1769?", you can simply state that you have a 1769
edition of the King James 1611 Authorized Version.

Another favorite lie of the critics is
that the original KJV of 1611 included the Apocrypha, which no true
Christian today accepts as Scripture. The Apocrypha is a collection of
several pagan writings which the Catholic church accepts as inspired
Scripture. In fact, the Council of Trent (1546) pronounced a CURSE
upon anyone who denied that these books were inspired. The King James
translators did NOT consider the books to be inspired Scripture, nor
did they include them in the canon as such. They merely placed the
Apocryphal books BETWEEN the Old and New testament as a historical
document, not as Scripture. Their reasons for not accepting the
Apocrypha as Scripture are listed on page 185-186 of the book
Translators Revived, by Alexander McClure. The seven reasons are
basically as follows:
1. Not one of them is in the Hebrew
language like the rest of the Old Testament books.
2. Not one of the writers lays any claim
3. These books were never acknowledged as
sacred Scriptures by the Jewish church, and therefore were never
sanctioned by our Lord.
4. They were not allowed a place among
the sacred books, during the first four centuries of the Christian
5. They contain fabulous statements, and
statements which contradict not only the canonical Scriptures, but
themselves. For example, in the Books of Maccabees alone, Antiochus
Epiphanes dies three times in three places!
6. It inculcates doctrines at variance
with the Bible, such as prayers for the dead and sinless perfection.
7. It teaches immoral practices, such as
lying, suicide, assassination and magical incantation.
BACK TO TABLE
Critics of the KJV have a nasty habit of
pointing out what they believe to be errors, contradictions, and
mistranslations in the Authorized Version. The sad fact is that they
usually point these things out to young men and women in Christian
colleges who do not know any better. Many young Christians, including
young preachers, are having their faith in God's word destroyed by the
very people they look to for spiritual guidance!
These so-called "errors" that are
presented by such infidels have been explained and written about so
many times that it's a shame to even have to mention it again. There
isn't enough space in a booklet of this size to embark upon a lengthy
rebuttle of such claims. Besides, it has already been done quite well
by others. Nevertheless, for the sake of showing the reader the nature
of the so-called "errors" in the AV, we will take the time to briefly
deal with just a few:
1. According to the critics, the word
"Easter" in Acts 12:4 is a mistranslation, because the Greek word is "pascha,"
and it is translated "passover" twenty-eight times in the New
Testament, and it should be translated likewise in Acts 12:4.
This is what happens when a man is so
hung up on "the Greek" that he can't read plain English. It should NOT
be translated "passover" because the Passover had already passed. The
"days of unleavened bread" had already begun (vs. 3), which
means the Passover was over (Num. 28:16-18; Exo. 12:13-18). The
Passover was always the fourteenth day of the first month, while the
days of unleavened bread ran from the fifteenth through the
twenty-first. Herod could not have been waiting for the Passover.
Besides, why would a Gentile king like Herod be concerned about a
Jewish feast day? "Easter" is from the pagan "Ishtar", the goddess
that the pagans worshipped--Rome included. Herod wanted to wait until
his pagan holiday was over before bringing Peter out to the people.
2. I John 5:7 is also the subject of much
debate. It is argued that the verse lacks manuscript evidence and does
not belong in the Bible. Being one of the greatest verses in the Bible
on the Trinity, we should be suspicious of any oppositions to it.
The verse should NOT be omitted from the
Bible. It is found in Greek manuscript 61, which probably forced
Erasmus to include it in his third edition Greek text of 1522.
I John 5:7 is also found in Codex
Ravianus, and in the margins of 88 and 629. It is also found in Old
Latin manuscripts r and Speculum. It was quoted by
Cyprian around A.D. 250, and two Spanish Bishops quoted it in the
fourth century (Priscillkian and Idacius Clarus). Several African
writers quote it in the fifth century, and Cassiodorus quotes it in
the sixth century in Italy.
The fact that Siniaticus and Vaticanus do
not include the verse means nothing to a true Bible believer. After
all, Vaticanus omits the entire book of Revelation, while keeping the
3. Many argue that the KJV is in error
with it's use of the word "devils" instead of "demons". Again, this is
due to an over emphasis on "the Greek" as well as a lack of faith in
God's ability to preserve His words in English. While protesting that
"daimon" should be translated "demon", many have overlooked a great
truth which the Holy Spirit has preserved in the King's English. There
is one true "Son of God", but many "sons of God". There is one true
"Church", the Bride of Christ, but many local "churches". Likewise,
there is one "Devil", but many "devils" under his control.
The word "demon" itself does not
necessarily imply an evil spirit. Even Webster's 1828
dictionary states that "the ancients believed that there were good and
evil demons...", and New Agers of today believe likewise. Therefore,
God led the KJV translators to translate "devils" instead of "demons"
because every "daimon" in the Bible IS an evil spirit. The word
"devil" makes that clear. Every "devil" in the Bible is under the
authority of their father "the Devil".
4. Then we have "contradictions" like
Exodus 24:10 and John 1:18. Exodus says the Israelites SAW God, while
Jesus said in John that "no man hath seen God at any time".
Contradiction, right? No, it's only a matter of rightly dividing the
word of truth (which you may not be practicing if II Tim. 2:15 has
been altered in your "bible"). God is a Trinity, just like you and I.
We're a body, a soul, and a spirit (I Ths. 5:23). The Israelites saw a
physical manifestation of God, but not the SOUL of God, just as
no one has ever seen your soul.
5. Numbers 25:9 says that 24,000 people
died in a plague, but I Corinthians 10:8 says that only 23,000 died.
Read I Corinthians 10:8 again and notice that 23,000 fell "in one
day". The 24,000 died altogether in a few days.
You see, these are the kind of "errors"
in the King James Bible. These are the reasons given for you to throw
away your Bible and buy a new one. Don't fall for it. I have learned
to always give God the benefit of a doubt, and to count the critics
guilty until proven innocent. So far I've been right. Anytime I see an
"error" in the KJV I just assume that I'm not learned enough in the
Scriptures to explain it, but that it is NOT an error. I just pray
about it and trust God. I NEVER correct the Book that God has
honored for so long. Thank God, I'm not that stupid.
BACK TO TABLE
In this final section, I'd like to point
out one of the best things about the new versions. What might that be?
It is the fact that we know where they're going to alter God's word
before they do it! We know how to "check'em out" without having to
waste our God-given time reading the whole translation. The following
list includes fifty "check points" which anyone can use to expose a
new translation. No translation will be guilty on all fifty counts,
but any translation since 1881 will alter God's word enough to prove
that the revisionists do not have God's best interest in heart. For
emphasis, I'll present these items from Satan's standpoint, briefly
illustrating his purpose for many of the changes:
1. Genesis 1:29. Omit the word "meat"
since there is no real flesh in the verse, only plant life. This will
destroy the cross reference to the "meat offering" of Leviticus 2,
which is really a GRAIN offering with no flesh. The Bible has it's own
built in dictionary, but let's not allow people to know it.
2. Genesis 3:5. Alter the word "gods" and
the cross references to Psalm 82, I Corinthians 8:5, and II
Corinthians 4:4 will be destroyed.
3. Genesis 22:1. The word "tempt" in the
verse should be replaced with "try". Here's another case of the
"built-in dictionary". James 1:2-3 explains the kind of tempting that
this was, but let's hide it from as many Christians as possible.
4. Numbers 33:52. Someone might use the
word "pictures" as a reference to television. Throw it out!
5. Isaiah 7:14. Attack the virgin birth
by omitting the word "virgin". After all, the Hebrew word "almah" can
mean a virgin, a damsel, or just a young woman.
Laodicean Christians are too lazy to check Matthew 1:23 to see how
Matthew translated it.
6. Daniel 3:25. There's Jesus Christ in
the Old Testament! Can't have that! Someone might get the idea that
He's eternal. Change "the Son of God" to "a son of the gods."
7. Micah 5:2. Another chance to attack
the eternal existence of Christ. Throw out "everlasting".
8. Zechariah 9:9. We're not interested in
anyone being SAVED, so omit the words "having salvation".
9. Matthew 1:25. Omit "firstborn" because
it shows the reader that Mary had other children after Jesus and did
NOT remain a perpetual virgin. They'll never think to check Psalm
69:8, Galatians 1:19, or John 7:5.
10. Matthew 5:22. Let's create a
contradiction by omitting the words "without a cause". This will make
Jesus contradict Paul in Ephesians 4:26.
11. Matthew 6:13. Omit the "kingdom", the
"power", and the "glory".
12. Matthew 27:54. Change "the Son of
God" to "a son of God".
13. Mark 1:1. This is the only Gospel
which refers to Christ as the "Son of God" in the very first verse.
Throw it out.
14. Mark 16:9-20. Either throw out the
last twelve verses of Mark or raise doubt about them in the margins
and footnotes. The less we read of a resurrected Christ the better.
15. Luke 1:34. Change Mary's words "I
know not a man" to "I have no husband". This will allow for possible
fornication between Mary and Joseph, which could make Joseph the
father of Jesus.
16. Luke 2:33. Attack the virgin birth
again by replacing "Joseph" with "father".
17. Luke 4:4. Omit "by every word of
God". No one will think to check Deuteronomy 8:3.
18. Luke 23:42. Here's a sinner being
saved by calling upon the name of the "Lord", which is in perfect tune
with Romans 10:13. Replace the divine title "Lord" with the human name
19. Luke 24:51. Raise doubt about the
ascension of Christ by omitting the words "carried up into heaven".
Hopefully, no one will check Luke's later comments in Acts 1:1-2.
20. John 1:14. Omit the word "begotten",
just like in John 1:18, 3:16, and 3:18.
21. Acts 1:3. Omit the word "infallible".
Nothing is infallible.
22. Acts 4:27. Jesus wasn't God's
"child". He was only His "servant".
23. Acts 8:37. Either omit the entire
verse or raise doubt about it, because this verse states that
scriptural water baptism is conditional upon BELIEF.
24. Acts 12:4. Change "Easter" to "passover".
No one will ever read Exodus and Numbers to find the truth.
25. Acts 17:22. Change "superstitious" to
26. Romans 1:18. Let's change "hold the
truth in unrighteousness" to "suppress the truth", which is a much
27. Romans 1:25. Let's say they
"exchanged the truth of God for a lie" instead of "changed the truth
of God into a lie".
28. Romans 1:29. Throw out "fornication".
29. Romans 10:17. Replace the word "God"
with "Christ". This will teach that faith comes by rallying around the
person of Jesus alone and not by feeding on every word of God (Luke
30. Romans 14:10. Change the word
"Christ" to "God". This will prevent anyone from realizing that Jesus
Christ is God when they read verse twelve.
31. I Corinthians 1:22. Change "require"
to "request", and destroy the great truth about signs being for
32. II Corinthians 2:17. Since we are
guilty of corrupting the word of God, replace the word "corrupt" with
33. II Corinthians 5:17. Replace the word
"creature" with "creation", although Mark 16:15 says "creature".
34. Ephesians 1:7. Throw out the "blood".
35. Philippians 3:21. People don't have
"vile" bodies. They just have "lowly" bodies.
36. Colossians 1:14. Throw out the
37. I Thessalonians 5:22. Omit the word
"appearance" so Christians will not be very concerned about their
38. I Timothy 3:16. The verse says that
"God was manifest in the flesh". Attack the Deity of Christ and the
Incarnation by throwing "God" clear out of the verse.
39. I Timothy 6:10. Change "all evil" to
"all kinds of evil". 40. I Timothy 6:20. Since many heresies are
taught today in the name of "science", and this verse gives a strong
warning against "science falsely so-called", change the word "science"
41. II Timothy 2:15. This is the only
command in the Bible to "study" the word of God. Omit the word
42. James 5:16. Let's justify Roman
Catholic confessionals by changing the word "faults" to "sins".
43. I Peter 5:11. Omit "glory" and
