What you're about to read is the most cunning deception in
history! If you think that's an overstatement, continue reading with
an open heart and mind. WHAT YOU'RE ABOUT TO READ IS
SHOCKING! An attack has been launched upon the Word of God
unprecedented in history!
God has placed alot of importance upon His Word. Jesus
Christ said in Matthew 24:35, "Heaven and earth shall pass away,
but my words shall not pass away." 1 Peter 1:23 reads, "Being
born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word
of God, which liveth and abideth for ever."
And Satan has done everything in his power to discredit the
Word of God. The most vicious battle, man has ever seen, is a
battle for the Word of God! The first time Satan attacks the
human race--it was a direct assault upon the Word of God!
Genesis 3:1 says, "Now the serpent was more subtil than any
beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto
the woman, Yea, hath God said...?" Satan planted a small
seed of doubt into the mind of Eve. And as Eve questioned the
truthfulness of God's Word--the fall of mankind was only a bite
away. Satan's target of attack hasn't changed! He knows the
spiritual life-line of the human race is dependent on the Word of
God, and if he can place the smallest seed of doubt and confusion
in God's Word--MANKIND WILL LOOK ELSEWHERE!
I believe, without question, that we are in the last days before
the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. And Satan knows time is
quickly running out. And he has master-minded an attack upon the
Word of God with a cunning and viciousness that is staggering!
Today, there is more confusion about the Bible, than any other
time in history. And nothing has caused more confusion than the
many different translations of the Bible now available. Time
magazine says, ". . . there is an unprecedented CONFUSION of
choices in Bibles. Never have so many major new translations been
on the market." Since 1880, over 100 different translations have
appeared! NO WONDER PEOPLE ARE SO CONFUSED! I've
had people say many times, "This Bible says one thing, that Bible
says another, and that Bible says another. Which one is right?
WHAT'S A PERSON TO BELIEVE?" Let's get something straight
right now! 1 Corinthians 14:33 plainly says, "God is not the
author of confusion[.]" God is not in the confusion business!
BUT SATAN IS! If he can plant the smallest seed of doubt in an
individual's mind, chances are, that individual will never take
God's Word serious!
I believe, without a shadow of doubt, that God has preserved
His Word in the King James Bible. I firmly believe the other versions
are Satanic counterfeits to cast doubt, cause confusion and
ATTACK THE LORD JESUS CHRIST! And friend, I'm going to
prove that statement in the remainder of this tract! If you've come
this far, please keep reading, because what you're about to read
just may be the most important words YOU HAVE EVER READ!
Most people believe that the different versions are basically the
same. They believe the newer versions are just revisions in
wording, updating of archaic words, and just made easier to read
and understand. NOTHING COULD POSSIBLY BE FURTHER
FROM THE TRUTH!
One of the clearest verses in the Bible proclaiming the deity and
incarnation of Jesus Christ, the fact that Jesus Christ was God in
the flesh, is 1 Timothy 3:16. The King James Bible reads, "And
without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was
manifest in the flesh, ...." The King James says plainly,
"God was manifest in the flesh". The New International Version
(NIV) says, 'HE appeared in a body'. The New American Standard
(NASV) says, 'HE who was revealed in the flesh'. The Revised
Standard (RSV) reads, 'HE was manifested in the flesh'. The New
Revised Standard (NRSV) reads, 'HE was revealed in flesh'.
Every one of them, reads 'HE' instead of "God". Who does 'He'
refer to? 'He' is a pronoun that refers to a noun or antecedent.
Friend, there is no antecedent in the context! Consequently,
THE 'HE' SPOKEN OF MEANS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!
A DIRECT ASSAULT ON THE DEITY OF JESUS CHRIST!
Of all the Greek manuscripts, ONLY ONE, has a 'he' (without God)!
Friend, why would someone ignore overwhelming manuscript
evidence and deliberately deny the deity of Jesus Christ? Think
that's just a coincident? NOT HARDLY!
The NEW King James Version?
In Acts 4:27 "holy child" is changed to 'holy
servant'. The following verses (among hundreds)
match the other per-versions: Romans 1:25; 1 Cor.
1:21; 2 Cor. 2:17; 1 Tim. 6:10; 1 Tim. 6:20, and 1 John
3:16. The word "hell" is removed in key verses, such
as, Luke 16:23 and Acts 2:31. They add the word
'continue' to 1 John 5:13 (knocking eternal security).
Is it a King James Bible? Absolutely Not! Not even
The KJV, again clearly revealing the deity of Jesus Christ,
reads in Philippians 2:6, "Who, being in the form of God, thought
it not robbery to be equal with God[.]" The NIV, NASV, RSV,
NRSV, Amplified and their 'buddies' totally re-word the verse to
attack the deity of Jesus Christ! The NIV reads, 'Who, being in very
nature God, DID NOT CONSIDER EQUALITY WITH GOD SOME-
THING TO BE GRASPED,' Someone is trying to get you to
question, probably the most important doctrine in the Bible--the
deity of Jesus Christ! WHO WOULD DO SUCH A THING?
Let's try another. Luke 2:33, The King James reads, "And
Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were
spoken of him." The NIV reads, 'The CHILD'S FATHER and
mother marveled at what was said about him.' The 'CHILD'S
FATHER'? Friend, do you believe that Joseph was Jesus's
father? Not if you believe the virgin birth! Not if you believe John
3:16, that Jesus Christ was the Son of God! A subtle satanic attack
at the virgin birth. WHY? WHO WOULD DO SUCH A THING?
Think these are just isolated cases? NOT BY A LONG SHOT!
There are literally thousands of alterations. Consider Colossians
1:14, the KJV reads, "In whom we have redemption through
his blood, even the forgiveness of sins[.]" The NIV reads, 'In
whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.' The NIV,
NASV, RSV, NRSV and crew rip the precious words "through
his blood" out! Friend, salvation is only "through his
blood[.]" That old song says, "What can wash away my sin?
NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS!"
Not according to the NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV and their
buddies! THE NIV REMOVES 'THE BLOOD' 41 TIMES! 41 times
they take the "blood" out of the Bible! At least 30 times they remove
the word "Christ"! And folks, believe it or not! THEY REMOVE
THE WORD "LORD" 352 TIMES! You read right! 352 times they
took out the word "Lord"! Somebody doesn't like the lordship!
Somebody wants you to be your own god! WHO WOULD DO
SUCH A THING? I'll give you a hint. . . he said to Eve in Genesis
3:5, "...ye shall be as gods...."
And of course something has to be done with John 3:16! So the
NIV and company reads 'For God so loved the world that he gave
his ONE AND ONLY SON, that whoever believes in him shall not
perish but have eternal life'--removing the critical word "be-
gotten"! If Jesus was 'the one and only' then what happens to
the wonderful promise to believers in 1 John 3:2, "Beloved, now are
we the sons of God, ..." or in John 1:12; Philippians 2:15? A BLATANT
A glaring error is found in the NIV and 'buddies' in Mark 1:2,3:
'It is written in Isaiah the prophet: I will send my messenger ahead
of you, who will prepare your way--a voice of one calling in the
desert, Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.'
It was most certainly NOT written in Isaiah--'I will send my
messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way'--is found in
Malachi 3:1! The King James correctly reads: "As it is written in the
prophets, ...." A better translation! A better reading! Easier to
understand! BY A LIE! (See John 8:44) [...] Somebody is deliber-
ately tampering with God's Word to DISCREDIT IT!
To really show the hypocrisy and satanic influence behind
these "PER-versions"--look at the replacement of the word "hell"

with 'Hades'! (See Matt. 16:18; Luke 16:23; Acts 2:31 and many
more, also in the NEW King James) And this is a better translation!
In fact, 'Hades' is not a "translation", but a "transliteration"
(changing the Greek word into the English alphabet)! What does
that do to the silly argument of the "archaic", "out-dated" King
James Bible that nobody understands? Trying to put these new
versions in modern language? By removing "hell" and replacing
it with the Greek word 'Hades'! Why didn't they "transliterate"
heaven and call it 'ouranos'? Because someone is trying to
remove the warning and horror of Hell! WHO WOULD DO SUCH
Are you getting the picture? Do you see how it's done? Do you
see how subtil (see Genesis 3:1), how seemingly, insignificant the
changes are--AND YET HOW DEADLY THEY ARE TO THE
INTEGRITY OF GOD'S WORD! Yes friend. Satan has launched
an attack on your Bible! YOU'D BETTER BELIEVE IT!
Let's try another. Acts 8:37, the King James reads, "And Philip
said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he
answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God."
The NIV, NASV, RSV, NRSV and 'buddies' reads--NOTHING!
THEY TOOK THE WHOLE VERSE OUT! One of the clearest
verses found in all the Bible on salvation through Jesus Christ and
they take the whole verse out! Why? Why is it that every time a
sinner is saved by grace in the book of Acts, the NIV and his
buddies attack it? In Acts 9:5,6: Paul is getting saved, and they
take out 20 words! In Acts 16:31 when the Philippian jailor gets
saved, the word "Christ" is removed! Why do these new bibles
so fiercely attack God's wonderful plan of salvation? I ask you
again friend! WHO WOULD DO SUCH A THING?
Three times the Lord warns against "adding and taking away"
from His Word. Toward the front: Deuteronomy 4:2 reads: "Ye
shall not add unto the word which I command you, nei-
ther shall ye diminish ought from it, ...." Toward the
middle: Proverbs 30:6, "Add thou not unto his words, lest he
reprove thee, and thou be found a liar." And just in case you
missed it, God's last warning words are Revelation 22:18,19 "..
.If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto
him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man
shall take away from the words of the book of this
prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, ...."
And despite three clear warnings, these new versions take
out and add text, over and over! They take out: Romans 16:24;
Mark 11:26; Acts 15:34; Luke 23:17; Acts 28:29; John 5:4; Mark
7:16; 9:44,46 and many more--as your Bible is ripped apart!
Jesus Christ says, in Luke 4:4, "It is written, That man shall not
live by bread alone, but by every word of God." Not
surprisingly, the last half of Luke 4:4 ("...but by every word of God")
is removed from the new translations. And don't let anybody
convince you, that "older and more reliable manuscripts have
been recently discovered" (as reads in the NIV, in order to remove
Mark 16:9-20, etc.). That is absolutely untrue! The book, The Last
Twelve Verses of the Gospel of Mark, by Dean Burgon, contains
over 400 pages of undisputable documented evidence for Mark
16:9-20, that has never been refuted, nor ever will! And further-
more, it is a well documented fact that 90-95% of all the Greek
manuscripts found are in agreement with the King James
Bible! SO WHY ALL THE CHANGES? I THINK WE KNOW!
DON'T WE? Genesis 3:1!
Your King James Bible is constantly under attack by preach-
ers in the pulpit, some intentional and some simply out of igno-
rance. One way they correct your King James Bible is by saying
"THE ORIGINAL SAYS". Friend, there is one little problem with
that: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS "THE ORIGINALS"!
There are no set of "ORIGINALS" on the face of this earth!
Another way they correct it is by saying "THE GREEK" says.
Preachers, by the thousands, will stand weekly in the pulpit and
correct your King James Bible by saying "This is an unfortunate
translation" or "a better reading would be." Friend, didn't God know
what He was doing when He gave His Word? Did He need these
modern day "Bible correctors" to come along and help Him out?
NOT HARDLY! Friend, don't let them destroy your faith in the
King James Bible!
God has preserved His Word for the English speaking people
in the King James Bible. [...]
