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.”
There is a curse on those who mess with the Holy Bible. Revelation 22:19, “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 out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” This warning applies to the entire Bible, because God only wrote one Book. God didn't write 66 books. The Bible contains approximately 30% prophecy. You cannot understand the Book of Revelation without Daniel. The books all harmonize and fit the pieces together to form the big prophetic picture. So anyone who removes verses or words from the Holy Bible are cursed by God.
The NIV remove the word “begotten” from John 3:16, which begets a false doctrine. 1st John 1:12 says that Christian believers are “the sons of God” (an adopted son of God, Romans 8:15). So Jesus is the only BEGOTTEN Son of God. God does not have only one son; but rather, only one begotten Son. This is just one of hundreds of theological blunders in these new corrupt Bible versions (which 100% all come from the corrupt Greek compilation of heretics Westcott and Hort).
The Bible warns about adding or subtracting from God's Word. 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.” The New International Version (NIV) is so corrupt and geared toward New Age that it is known as, “The Antichrist's Bible.” God has a special place in the lowest parts of Hell for those who corrupt the Bible, whether deliberately or sincerely. 2nd Peter 3:16, “As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.”
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.” Ancient Scribes who mistranslated the Holy Bible were put to death. Psalms 138:2 teaches that God hath magnified His Word above all His holy name. Philippians 2:9-10 teaches that Jesus is the name above every other name. Thus, God magnifies His Word above the name of Jesus, because the Living Word means nothing if the Written Word is not trustworthy. Jesus is the Word of God incarnate, that is, in the flesh (John 1:1-3, 14; Revelation 19:13). When you're messing with the Bible, you're messing with Jesus Christ!
“The Word of God is our only hope—that's our only hope! This has been the generation of translations and abominations, and perversions, of the Word of God! It's been a long time; now when the Revised Standard Version came out, I stood against it before I knew what it was, because the wrong crowd heard of that, and the wrong crowd received it, and I knew it got too much publicity to be right! And I knew if the newspapers publicized something, it had to be wrong! And so I knew that the American people and a lot of American preachers—they welcomed it into their house before they knew it was a rattlesnake!” —Brother Lester Roloff, a needful quote from the MP3 sermon titled, “'THE LIVING BIBLE' EXPOSED!”
Biblica Condemn Themselves by Selling Bibles to Make Money
The International Bible Society (IBS, founded in 1809) was renamed in 2009 to Biblica. In 1968 they formed The Committee On Biblical Translation (CBT), which gave us the New International Version (NIV), first published in 1984. One of the PERversions in their shameful series is the New International Reader's Version (NIRV) for teens. Honestly, I'd rather subject teens to MTV and VH1 satanic videos than the satanic NIRV, because teens know that the videos are of the Devil, but they don't recognize the extreme dangers of being influenced by a corrupted Bible version.
The translators of the NIRV really butchered the Word of God. What knuckleheads and hypocrites! They pervert 2nd Corinthians 2:17 from “corrupt the word of God” to “sell the Word of God” (no doubt in an attempt to shift blame away from themselves for corrupting God's Holy Word)...
KING JAMES BIBLE — 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.”
NEW INTERNATIONAL READER'S VERSION (NIRV) — 2nd Corinthians 2:17, “Unlike many people, we aren’t selling God’s word to make money. In fact, it is just the opposite. Because of Christ we speak honestly before God. We speak like people God has sent.”
NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION (NIV) - 2nd Corinthians 2:17, “Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, as those sent from God.”
Biblica (formerly the International Bible Society) and Zondervan sell Bibles to make money! So according to their own corrupt translations, they are doing evil by selling the Scriptures!
Wicked Infidels Remove God's Curse Against Bible Corrupters!
I just showed you the satanic NIV and NIRV, which change 2nd Corinthians 2:17; but here also is what the corrupt ERV says (that Harvest Baptist Church on Guam uses), and what the ESV says (that Bob Jones University sells and promotes. These are contaminated translations which horribly mislead people...
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.”
ENGLISH STANDARD VERSION (ESV) - 2nd Corinthians 2:17, “For we are not, like so many, peddlers of God's word, but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ.”
WHAT HORRIBLE CORRUPTION of God's Word!!! Do you see how wicked liberals, reprobates and Bible corrupters have altered the Word of God? The inspired King James Bible condemns those who “CORRUPT THE WORD OF GOD.”
It doesn't surprise me that the greedy people who butcher the Word of God, to make it more marketable, would also change this Bible passage in an attempt to exonerate themselves. The Greek word for “corrupt” in the King James Bible is kapēleuō and means, “(a huckster); to retail, that is, (by implication) to adulterate.” A huckster is someone who sells shoddy goods. It means much more than simply “selling God's Word” as the NIRV wrongly states; but rather, it refers to someone who is shady, like a shifty used car salesman, or a crooked politician like Barack Obama and his fraudulent ObamaCare that doesn't care about anybody!
The word kapēleuō refers to shady people who pervert (adulterate) the Word of God to sell it and make money. The publishers of the NIV series and all who profit lucratively from it's massive sales are criminals in God's eyes. They have perverted (corrupted) the living Words of God!!! If, as the NIRV states in 2nd Corinthians 2:17, selling the Word of God is wrong, then they are big time guilty, because the NIV series is the most used Bible in churches today. I wish every pastor in America would teach this truth to their congregation. We are at war ladies and gentlemen, and we are losing the battle. Thankfully, we are ultimately on the winning side in Jesus Christ!
See also what the Devil's Bible-corrupting gang have done, to corrupt God's solemn PROMISED in Psalms 12:6-7 to preserve His very pure inspired words unto every generation. The perverted modern versions merely say that God preserves the saints instead of His words. That is dishonest fraud on the part of the Bible translators!!! ...
Jeremiah 23:36, “And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.”
The Horrible Evil of Using and Sanctioning the Alexandrian Bible Versions
Equally as horrible as the Bible corrupting gang are the shameful pastors (including many Independent Baptists), who go along to get along and don't care which Bible they use. It makes me cry when I see Baptist churches using the modern corrupt Bible versions, because they've bought into the Devil's deception of an easier-to-read version. Yes, they are easier-to-read, but all of the most important key passages concerning Christ's deity have been changed. The word Godhead is completely gone. Philippians 2:6 has been totally changed to say Jesus couldn't grasp quality with God. Only the King James Bible uplifts the deity of Christ, boldly proclaims the Godhead, still says that people worshipped Jesus, and still calls Jesus the only BEGOTTEN Son of God.
“Now the serpent (there's your rattlesnake right there!)... question the Word of God... This has been the same generation questioning the Word of God. I'm sick of hearing about all the mistakes in the King James version! “It's not dependable” [critics say]. It is! The night I got saved it was dependable! The night God called me to preach it was dependable! For 43 years, I've been preaching it and declaring it, and it's been dependable to rescue the perishing and care for the dying, and sober the drunkard, and to deliver the dope head! I've never found anything any better! And so you're not going to get me to raise a bunch of questions about the Word of God! When I say the 'Word of God,' I consider the King James Version the Word of God!!!” —Brother Lester Roloff, a needful quote from the awesome MP3 sermon titled, “'THE LIVING BIBLE' EXPOSED!”
If you haven't researched the matter, you are going to get angry when you learn the truth that Luciferian-worshipping occultists are behind all modern Bible versions. Don't you dare sing “Holy, Holy, Holy” at church on Sunday if you're pulling on the same rope as the Devil by using the modern corrupted Bible PERversions!!!
Nobody Is Laughing In Hell! (MP3 sermon by Evangelist Phil Kidd)
Revelation 22:19, “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 out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” ... Revelation 20:15, “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.”
The “Easy To Read” Lie Behind Modern Corrupt Bible Versions
King James Bible is Verbally Inspired (Word-for-Word) by God
“But you see, the attitude of this generation is: If you got a lot of education, Boy we've got it made! I mean that's it; I mean, you're just super-duper! ... Any kind of education that doesn't strengthen your faith in Jesus is an abomination!!! And the average college graduate comes out with less faith and less fire, than he had when he went in. I'm talking about in the Christian schools, in the seminaries, and in the Bible schools across this country; now that ought not be!” —Brother Lester Roloff, a needful quote from the MP3 sermon titled, “'THE LIVING BIBLE' EXPOSED!”
“The worst rattlesnake on this earth, is the man that twists or seeks to modernize, or take from or add to, the Word of God!” —Brother Lester Roloff, a needful quote from the awesome MP3 sermon titled, “'THE LIVING BIBLE' EXPOSED!”
“Can't you see what the Devil is seeking to do to our people today? Modernists and infidels have taken over the chore of rewriting the Bible, and say—he goes ahead to say that—'We have written a book that everybody can understand.' Dear friend, that's the most stupid statement a man could ever make! Nobody has ever understood all of God or all of God's Word!” —Brother Lester Roloff, a wonderful quote from the MP3 sermon titled, “'THE LIVING BIBLE' EXPOSED!”
