'English Standard Version' Corrupts 1st John 3:9
(Thus corrupting the Gospel)
by David J. Stewart | February 2017
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.”
All of the modern Bible revisions pervert the Holy Scriptures, to say that you're not saved if you continue sinning, but that is not what the Holy Bible really says. The Alexandrian texts from which all the modern Bible versions are translated are corrupt.
The King James Bible correctly reads in 1st John 3:9, “HE CANNOT SIN.” The satanic modern revisions errantly read, “HE CANNOT KEEP ON SINNING.” Whoa! Even a child can see that something is wrong with this picture. Do you see how the Devil has deceived churchgoers today, to use CORRUPTIBLE WORD to interpret INCORRUPTIBLE WORD? Pastors, churches and preachers who use CORRUPTIBLE WORD can expect to receive no rewards from God; but rather, reproach and shame at the Judgment Seat of Christ. Therefore, knowing the “terror of the Lord” (2nd Corinthians 5:10-11), because we must all stand before God one day, I am trying to persuade pastors and churches, but they are not listening.
What Christian doesn't sin? We all keep on singing, every day! This truth is Biblically evidenced by the daily struggle the apostle Paul had with sin (Romans 7:14-25).
My friend, I cannot warn you enough about the modernized corrupt Bible versions. Satan is behind every modern Bible version, which were all translated from an entirely different Hebrew and Greek source than the King James Bible. I feel sorry for people in the average evangelical church today, who when they read the Bible consult 5 or 6 different Bible versions to decide which rendering they like the best. That is so awful! Friend, God only wrote ONE BOOK, and it's not open for personal preference! The inspired King James Bible is the AUTHORITATIVE Word of God! In drastic contrast, all of the new Bible versions read like comic books or a daily newspaper, losing their authoritativeness!
Please consider carefully the following CONTRAST between the accurate King James Bible, and all the corrupt modern translations...
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.”
ENGLISH STANDARD VERSION (ESV)—1st John 3:9, “No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God's seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been 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.”
NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION (NIV)—1st John 3:9, “No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God.”
THE VOICE (VOICE)—1st John 3:9, “Everyone who has been born into God’s family avoids sin as a lifestyle because the genes of God’s children come from God Himself. Therefore, a child of God can’t live a life of persistent sin.”
Only the King James Bible gets it correct! From examining the false modern versions, it is easy to see why a false Gospel of turning away from sins has crept into the churches. And sadly, Moody Bible Institute (MBI) and Bob Jones University (BJU) promote this ungodly ESV filth. Bob Jones University's Campus Store Sells the Satanic English Standard Version (ESV) Perversion!!!
Do you see how the Devil has butchered the meaning of God's Word? By making subtle changes to the Scriptures, the modern PERversions completely change the plan of salvation. This is a deadly spiritual deception, which causes people to miss the narrow gate (Matthew 7:13-14) which leadeth unto life, which is “THE SIMPLICITY THAT IS IN CHRIST” (I love that phrase). The simplicity that is in Christ is THE GOSPEL. 2nd Corinthians 11:3-4, “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.” May I say, truthfully, the ESV and the corrupted new Bible versions, teach ANOTHER GOSPEL. Bob Jones University's Campus Store Sells the Satanic English Standard Version (ESV) Perversion!!!
According to 1st John 3:9 in the ESV, you are not saved if you are a backslidden believer living in sin. Paul called the believers at the church of Corinth “carnal” and “babes in Christ” (1st Corinthians 3:1). Clearly, there is such a thing as a carnal Christian! Paul even said in Romans 7:14b, “I am carnal, sold under sin.” This in no way means that Paul was not saved, because eternal life is the free gift of God, and does not require human effort in any way.
“The worst pervert in America is the Gospel pervert!”

Every Christian continues in sin! The ESV corrupts God's Word to teach that believers who continue in sin are not really saved. This is NOT what the King James Bible teaches. The KJB says it is IMPOSSIBLE for he that is born of God to sin. We don't need to consult the Greek language to understand what this Scripture is talking about, because we are told in 1st John 3:24, “And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.” It is the Holy Spirit in us as believers Who cannot sin. The emphasis of the Epistle of 1st John is that you can KNOW (1st John 5:13) that you are saved by the presence of the Holy Spirit.
The world's churches are filled with good people who live morally upright lives, they are caring, they are generous, they are dedicated to serving their God; but they have never been born-again and are still hellbound in their sins. Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again. That is why the emphasis of the Epistle of 1st John is whether or not you are indwelt with the Holy Spirit. 1st John 3:24, “And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.”
If turning away from immoral activities is evidence of salvation, than many unsaved religious heathens are saved. Cornelius was a devoutly religious (but UNSAVED) man in Acts 10:1-2, “There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band, A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway.” God told Cornelius in a dream to go meet Peter, who preached the Gospel to him, and Cornelius was saved at the end of the chapter.
Most religious people are as lost as the Devil. Matthew 27:3 says Judas “repented,” yet he went straight to Hell in his sins without Christ. This is the false repentance of turning away from sins for salvation, which heresy has crept into the churches today because of the modern corrupted Bible versions. Please read the excellent writings by Pastor Harry A. Ironside, WHAT IS THE GOSPEL? and ANOTHER GOSPEL. Also, please see, THE GREAT WORDS OF THE GOSPEL (an awesome book by Dr. Ironside).
The Biblical plan of salvation is simply that we are all guilty sinners, but Christ paid our debt of sin, and if we BELIEVE the good news that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, was burial and bodily resurrection, we are saved. In sharp contrast, the Devil has infiltrated evangelical churches with counterfeit Bible versions, which change the Scriptures to teach that repentance is a change of lifestyle instead of a change of mind.
You don't have to change your own life as a requirement to be saved. Rather, it is the indwelling Holy Spirit that comes into a person at the time of salvation that changes one's heart and life, over time as they grow in grace by nurturing on the milk of the Word (1st Peter 2:2). Anyone who tells you that you must change your ways, habits or sinful lifestyle to be saved is a BIG LIAR! Eternal life is a gift (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9). A gift can simply be received, not achieved.
ERV Corrupts Hebrews 6:1, Changing Plan of Salvation
If “Faith Without Works is Dead,” Then Saving-Faith Must First Exist
We read in James 2:17, “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.” Notice that faith without works is “ALONE.” That is, faith still exists, even without works. It would be ridiculous for someone to say, “The dog is dead,” if there were no actual dog. So in order for faith to be dead, it must exist. Hence, works are not necessary for salvation. This is Biblical. Catholics, in particular, like to misquote James 2:17 in an attempt to justify salvation BY WORKS. The apostle James was not teaching that works are required to complete one's salvation; but rather, works are necessary to justify our faith IN THE EYES OF MEN.
James 2:18, “Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.” James said, “I'll show you,” he didn't say “I'll show God.” Only God can see into a man's heart, which is why we are justified by believing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our heart (Romans 10:10). But man can only see outwardly, which is why works are necessary to show our faith to the world.
This Scripture passage in James chapter 2:17-21 can be easily misinterpreted. James 2:20-21, “But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead? Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?”
Here is solid evidence that Abraham was NOT saved by works...
Romans 4:1-6, “What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found? For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God. For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness. Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works.”
Notice Romans 4:2, “For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God.” Do you see? If Abraham were justified by works, it would not be BEFORE GOD. That is, not in God's sight. Man cannot be justified by works in God's sight. Romans 4:5 plainly teaches that God justifies THE UNGODLY, without works, because a man's FAITH IS COUNTED FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS!!!
Jesus Christ is the New Man!
When you get saved, nothing changes about you! It is the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ, specifically the Godhead, Who comes to indwell you that is the new change. Your salvation does not change you one bit! You are still you! When the Bible says that “all things are become new” (2nd Corinthians 5:17), it refers to the spiritual enlightenment that only a born-again believer has. 1st Corinthians 2:14, “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.” Without the presence of the Author (God's indwelling Spirit), no one can understand the Holy Bible.
The King James Bible accurately teaches that the new man (Who is Jesus Christ in us) CANNOT SIN. When we sin, we are walking in the flesh, and it is the Old (natural) Man who is sinning. The PERverted ERV changes the Word of God to instead teach that if you're really saved, you won't continue in sin. This is another prime example of how the new satanic Bible versions have completely changed God's simple plan of salvation; from one of resting completely in Christ (as the accurate KJB teaches - Hebrews 4:10-11), to one of requiring the human effort of turning away from sinful behavior to be saved. These are two drastically different plans of salvation, and only one is correct! You don't have to give up anything to be saved! God gave up His only begotten Son for us! You don't even have to give up your unbelief, just so long as you BELIEVE ON THE LORD JESUS CHRIST in spite of your unbelief. It is the lack of BELIEVING that keeps a man out of Heaven, and not the presence of DOUBT. Faith is not the absence of doubt; but rather, believing in spite of the doubt.
One of our text Bible verses teaches that a man who is in Christ is a NEW CREATURE! That “new creature” is the indwelling Holy Spirit, which Romans 8:9 calls the “Spirit of Christ.” Literally, when you get saved, the Godhead (Trinity) comes to live inside your body. That doesn't mean that we are God; but rather, our body becomes “the temple” of the Holy Spirit, Who is God in us (1st Corinthians 3:16-17; John 14:23). If you have been born-again, you have God the Father and God the Son indwelling your body (1st Corinthians 3:16-17) as God the Holy Spirit. 1st John 3:24, “And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.” The evidence that we are saved is the presence of the indwelling Holy Spirit, not turning away from sin. The world's churches are filled with unsaved religious people who have turned away from immoral living, who will perish into the fire of Hell in their false security of religion.
It is Jesus in Us Who Cannot Sin, Not the Imperfect Believer!
The Holy Spirit cannot sin! If we obey Jesus in us, then we will not sin. Of course, we are sinners by nature and by choice, so we are not always going to choose to walk in the Spirit. 1st John 3:9 in the correct KJB says the new man CANNOT SIN. Well, the Holy Bible teaches that we all have sin, even the best of Christians, like the apostle Paul (Romans 7:14-25). The Word of God is filled with classic examples of true believers who lived in sin. Samson lived a shameful lifestyle of sin, as did king Solomon and Lot. In the New Testament, Demas forsake Paul, having loved this present world, but the Bible never says that Demas wasn't saved. Noah went from being the captain of his ship to a drunken sailor!
For an excellent sermon on the subject, by Pastor Steven Anderson, please watch the video: “The New Man Verses The Old Man.”
David commit adultery with Bath-Sheba and then conspired to get her husband drunk, deceiving and eventually having Uriah murdered! The Bible calls David the “man after God's own heart”! The Lord fully knew the sins that David would one day commit before God chose him to be the king of Israel. In fact, God knew before Adam was created, because the Word of God is forever settled in Heaven (Psalms 119:89). The last word of Revelation existed in Heaven before the first word of Genesis was ever given to Moses!
The Holy Bible commands us as born-again believers to “WALK IN THE SPIRIT” (i.e., the Holy Spirit Who indwells us as God's child). Galatians 5:16, “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.” Galatians 5:25, “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.” Notice in Galatians 5:25 that those who “live” in the Spirit (meaning believers who are saved), ought to also “walk” in the Holy Spirit. Galatians 2:20, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
