God Pity The Preacher
Who Supports Corrupt Bible Versions
(Or, preachers who are woefully ignorant of The Art Of Spiritual War)
By David J. Stewart | December 2015 | Updated February 2016
2nd Timothy 4:2-4, “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
I love preachers. Brother Lester Roloff (1914-1982) rightly said, “The great need of the hour is PREACHING PREACHERS!!!” The Bible foretold that in the coming apostate End Times, people would no longer tolerate THE TRUTH; but instead would become pansies seeking out wimps. The word “fables” comes from the Greek word Muthos, meaning, “a tale, fiction (“myths”). Notice in our text verse that the first thing mentioned in to PREACH THE WORD!!! 2nd Timothy 4:2a, “Preach the word...” It seems that preachers today are saying anything these days but what God wants them to say, which is, THE TRUTH. God wants preachers to PREACH THE WORD!!!
The Bible teaches that we are all engaged in a spiritual war. Ephesians 6:12-13, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” Most people are unsaved, children of the Devil, dwelling on the Devil's side and they don't even realize it. Tragically, they'll never be awoken to THE TRUTH, because of today's shallow preachers who are New-Evangelical―hobnobbing with the Devil's crowd, refusing to take a firm stand for God against sin, coddling the homosexual agenda, avoiding controversial subjects, going-along-to-get-along (ecumenical), using and supporting corrupt modern Bible PERversions, teaching the satanic heresy of Lordship Salvation―all of which are effectively pulling on the same rope as the Devil.
In 2008, a Barna Research Group survey of 1,871 professed Christians revealed some very disturbing statistics:
- 40% didn't believe that Satan is a literal being, but is merely a symbol of evil.
- 22% believed that Jesus was a sinner.
- 38% didn't believe that the Holy Spirit is a literal living entity, but is merely a symbol of God's presence or power.
- 22% believed that everyone is god, or that god merely refers to the realization of human potential.
These statistics are describing professed “Christians”!!! How could this happen? How can professed Christians believe that the sinless Lamb of God was a dirty sinner??? It's not hard to imagine when you consider the shallow sermons by slackers; such as, Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, Billy Graham, Max Lucado, Ravi Zacharias and hundreds more prophets-for-hire! These ministers (which ironically means “servant”) are all multi-millionaires from their ecumenical ministries. None of them let-er-rip, telling it like it is, or risk offending the masses.
Ravi Zacharias' website is so wicked that he even says: “We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Catholic church...”! The Roman Catholic church is of the Devil, but Ravi plays with words and leads woefully ignorant Catholics to think he supports their damned religion. After speaking to thousands of unsaved Mormons in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2014, they gave him a standing ovation. The reason is because Ravi deliberately preaches extremely shallow messages, painstakingly trying to avoid offending his audience. In fact, Ravi apologized to Mormons in 2014 for the fundamentalist Christians who've preached against them in the past. What a loser in Heaven's eyes!!! Hardly anybody stands for God and truth anymore.
Our text verses plainly warns that in the Last Days religious people will seek out false teachers who speak with soft words, tickling their eyes and scratching their backs. 2nd Timothy 4:2a, “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
Talk about fables, have you compared the new Bibles today to the trustworthy King James Bible? What a frightening reality! The new Bible are so corrupt that they've completely redefined many key theological terms, like repentance and faith. According to the American Bible Society, there are about 900 English Bible versions . . .
I am afraid no one can give you an exact number for the English translations and paraphrases of the Bible printed since Tyndale's New Testament of 1526. In part this is due to the difficulty of determining what should be defined as a new translation as opposed to a correction or a revision of an existing translation. There is the additional question of how we should count translations that include not a complete Bible or Testament, but just a group of books or even a single book. And then, of course, there is the difficulty of sheer numbers. With all these caveats in mind, the number of printed English translations and paraphrases of the Bible, whether complete or not, is about 900.
That is shocking! Whereas God only wrote one Book, the Devil has confused the churches by giving us 900 Bible versions to choose from. That number will reach 1,000 in the next decade!
Furthermore, all of the new counterfeit Bibles, which have their origin in the corrupted 1881 Greek of Westcott and Hort, redefine what it means to repent. Since Satan couldn't trick people into abandoning the Holy Bible, he instead tricked them into exchanging it for a different one (a changed one, a false Bible version). Romans 1:25, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.” 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.” Beware of wolves in sheep's clothing. Beware of greedy dogs.
The Art Of War
The famous Chinese military general and tactician, Sun Tzu 544-496BC), authored the work, “The Art of War” (lit., “Master Sun's Rules for Army”). It presents a philosophy of war for managing conflicts and winning battles. It is accepted as a masterpiece on strategy and is frequently cited and referred to by generals and theorists since it was first published, translated, and distributed internationally. In the 20th century, the Chinese Communist leader Mao Zedong partially credited his 1949 victory over Chiang Kai-shek and the Kuomintang to The Art of War. The work strongly influenced Mao's writings about guerrilla warfare, which further influenced communist insurgencies around the world.
Here are some interesting quotes from General Sun Tzu's work THE ART OF WAR . . .
“The art of war is the art of deception.” ―Sun Tzu
“The whole secret lies in confusing the enemy, so that he cannot fathom our real intent.” ―Sun Tzu
“To know your Enemy, you must become your Enemy.” ―Sun Tzu
“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.” ―Sun Tzu
“Treat your men as you would your own beloved sons. And they will follow you into the deepest valley.” ―Sun Tzu
All of the preceding art of war tactics are true of the modern Bible-corrupting movement!!! All of the preceding art of war tactics are true of the ecumenical movement!!! Neoevangelicals befriend Independent Fundamental Baptist preachers and before you know, those fundamentalist pastors start kowtowing and hobnobbing with the wrong crowd, and then they change and ignorantly join the Devil's cause. If your church uses modern Bible versions, you're not fundamentalists, and you're pulling on the same rope as the Devil. If your church promotes Rick Warren, John MacArthur, Ray Comfort, Billy Graham, Ravi Zacharias, Pat Robertson, Beth Moore, Max Lucado, R.C. Sproul and Chip Ingram from the pulpit, you're pulling on the same rope as the Devil, bringing ecumenicalism, a false plan of salvation, and apostasy into the churches.
By use of the apostate vehicle of ecumenism, the Devil is subduing the churches without a fight. Satan has deliberately confused the churches today with literally hundreds of different English Bible versions, so that people can no longer fathom the real intent of occultists and their Luciferian conspiracy to infiltrate the churches and promote the New World Order. Alice Bailey, one of the most notorious occultists of the 20th century, plainly stated that they intended to overthrow the churches.
Alice Bailey teaches that the churches will be revived into a NEW FORM, which will restore the hidden occult mysteries, which will be the God of forces (New Age) of the coming Antichrist...
“It is these Mysteries which Christ will restore upon His reappearance,” Alice Bailey reveals, "thus reviving the churches in a new form, and restoring the hidden Mystery.” (The Reappearance of the Christ, pg. 122). [emphasis added]
Beware of the modern Bible versions, which attack Christ's deity, remove the Godhead, diminish the preeminence of Jesus Christ, and promote a form of spirituality (godliness) without theology, and without the saving power of the Gospel. We're hearing a lot of talk these days from preachers about “inviting Jesus into your life,” which is NOT the Biblical Gospel, and cannot produce the new birth by the Holy Spirit of God. Tragically, most people are coming to RELIGION these days, but not being BORN AGAIN. The Devil's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born again!!!
2nd Timothy 4:2a, “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
Tragically, most pastors don't even have enough spiritual discernment anymore to determine which Bible God wrote. The modern Bible version originate from A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT HEBREW AND GREEK SOURCE than the trustworthy King James Bible. God pity any pastor, evangelist or Christian leader who supports the menagerie of modern corrupted Bible versions, most of which were translated from the satanic work of heretics Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort.
It is a shame when the truth offends pastors. It is a shame when the King James Bible is despised and viewed with utter contempt. Please listen to Dr. Bob Gray's awesome MP3 sermon titled, How A Fundamentalist Becomes A Liberal. Dead pulpits equal empty alters at invitation time. Have you ever noticed that Ray Comfort never gets anybody saved? He tells everyone that God won't save them unless they forsake their sinful bad habits. Of course Mr. Comfort has no converts! The same thing with David Cloud. Their coffers are empty of saved converts, so all they can do is slam soul-winners who do win hundreds or thousands of souls to Jesus Christ. Kindly, Ray Comfort and David Cloud need to get saved. Since they require human effort to be saved, that is, forsaking one's intentional sinful behavior, I don't see how they can be saved having that works-based mindset.
God pity the preacher who supports the modern satanic Bible versions, which have confused people. God pity the preacher who teaches the Devil's plan of Lordship Salvation, which sends people to Hell. God pity the preacher who despises the inspired King James Bible, because it is God's Holy Word. God pity the preacher who has a problem with “the simplicity that is in Christ” (which is the sole purpose of the book, “I Never Knew You,” by Michael Bowen), because it is the truth. God pity the preacher who supports the Devil's ecumenical movement, which deadens the churches by promoting better cooperation and agreement between believing and unbelieving churches. The church who's in bed with the Devil won't expose the works of the Devil.
God intended for the Church to be radical compared to the unbelieving heathen world. Is your church radical? Are you a radical Christian? Or do you fit in just fine with the heathen world? Has your sissy pastor embraced the homosexual agenda like 20,562 Presbyterian ministers? Jesus plainly taught that NO MAN can serve God and mammon (wealth), for he will love the one and despise the other. When a religious leader despises the King James Bible, something is very wrong! Most people are drawn into today's shallow churches by the pretty music, dead preaching, friendly faces and lack of moral standards; which is exactly what makes Seventh-day Adventism thrive. I'm just calling it like I see it as a Christian who loves the Lord. Acts 4:20, “For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”
It's becoming extremely difficult to find a godly church today. The love of money has been elevated to a higher priority than the love of the truth! I'm tired of ministries that deliberately stay shallow in their teachings to maximize their financial profits. We need men of God to take a stand!!! I can't remember how many times people have asked me over the years to take a look at some ministry they've found, wanting my personal opinion. More times than not I have to let them know that the particular ministry in question is as shallow as can be, focusing primarily on Creationism, or just salvation, or Israel, one or two aspects of the Christian faith. They dare not preach against women wearing pants, or against the fraud of Zionism, or expose the fraudulent official report about the 9/11 attacks, or warn people about the now forming diabolical New World Order, expose the evils of Freemasonry, or expose the evils of today's Country music videos, or rebuke the vile filth of Walt Disney, or a hundred other controversial subjects.
So the Christian pastor doing all the dirty work, telling the truth like it is, barely survives financially; while the rotten compromisers who tickle the ears rake in millions-of-dollars a year! Who do you think God is going to reward? That's right, the guy being penalized for his stand for God! I have no respect for men who profit millions-of-dollars off of Christianity, live in a mansion, and rub shoulders with the financial elite of this world. That's heathendom! I get upset when I see a so-called “ministry” taking in millions-of-dollars, and the only reason they're able to do it is by intentionally remaining vague, general and non-offensive concerning THE TRUTH!!! Get right with God! The Lord doesn't reward how much money a Christian makes here on earth; but rather, our labours for Christ (1st Corinthians 3:7-8; Matthew 6:19-20), enduring hardships (James 1:12), and persecution for our Christlike testimony (Luke 6:35).
God Promises A Reward To Faithful Christians Who Suffer Persecution & Endure Adversity
James 1:12, “Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.” In James 1:12, the word “temptation” is the Greek word peirasmos, which means, “a putting to proof (by experiment [of good], experience [of evil]; by implication, adversity.” Thus, the word temptation doesn't primarily refer to sinful temptation; but rather, to EVERYTHING THAT TESTS OUR FAITH!!! It includes permanent hardships, such as health woes, that will never go away. It refers to our sufferings in life. If I decided to quit my ministry, my umpteen enemies would go away. But I choose to suffer adversity as I stand and labor for my precious Lord Jesus Christ. I know God will greatly reward me for my adversity, persecutions and hardships.
I know God will reward me more for my labours for Him, since I suffer more bodily, and it is difficult for me to labor in my constant neck and bodily pain (due to stenosis and radiculopathy in my neck). Although the two disks between C5-C6-C7 have been removed and fused with a hipbone graft and titanium plate, I still have a mildly protruding disk at C3-C4, bone spurs at C5-C6 and and other complications in my neck. Although the Laser Spine Institute in Florida says I still have at least four problems in my neck, any or all of which may require surgery, I am no longer eligible for surgery because three doctors have decided against further surgery. My second neck surgery made me 100% worse, so they don't want to take any more risks of me getting worse.
As I type, I have sharp razorblade-like pain radiating down into my right arm and right leg. Both of my hands constantly tingle, and feel as if I'm wearing gloves all the time. My neck is always tense, whether I turn it or stay still. My arms constantly feel like the veins are inflated with air. People can't see my afflictions and don't know how I feel inside, or the constant suffering that I endure, but God does. I've never been paid a dime for all my diligent labors for the Lord. I have six websites, and I've never took a penny since I began in 2002, and I never will.
Here's one of my favorite passages of Scripture...
Philippians 3:17-21, “Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.”
Oh, how I am looking forward to a new glorified body, perfect like unto the Lord's resurrected body. That's a promise from God! The unsaved world lives for their belly, which is their God. Many people live for their stomach, and God has no place in their life at all.
The Bible plainly informs and warns us that Satan is a con-artist, a master deceiver, who appears as an angel of the Lord. 2nd Corinthians 11:13, “For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” So if the Devil appears as a righteous being, even as Christ Himself, then how can we discern his true evil identity? The answer is by shedding the light of God's Holy Word on everything, to test (try) what spirit it is. 1st John 4:1, “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” There is no other way to know. Everything has a spirit about it, whether it be: a song, a book, a play, a movie, a sermon, a conversation, a person, an organization, a religion, et cetera. Any spirit that is not the Holy Spirit is of the flesh, the world, or the Devil.
There is a satanic spirit behind the modern Bible versions, which attacks the deity of Jesus Christ (i.e., that He is almighty God). This is NOT a coincidence. Wishy-washy Bibles produce wishy-washy churchgoers, not born-again believers! Those believers who grew up with the King James Bible can survive the Devil's onslaught of counterfeit Bibles, but the new generation who has never read a King James Bible is doomed to utter heresy, deception and the New World Order. The new Bible versions entirely redefine what it means to “repent” and be “saved.” Instead of proclaiming the desperate need to be being born-again into God's family, all we're hearing from today's satanic ministers is to, “Invite Jesus into your life” and “Invite Jesus into your heart.” Neither of these are THE GOSPEL. Beware my friend, beware, Satan is out to deceive you! END

God Opens Doors!
When one door closes He opens another. It's not that Jesus closes doors, but He opens other doors! When Jesus opens a door, no man can shut it! ...
Revelation 3:8, “I know
thy works: behold, I have set
before thee an open door, and no man
can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.”
Repent And Believe To Be Saved
Proverbs 14:34, “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”
Mark 1:15: “...repent ye, and believe the gospel.”
for in them ye think ye have eternal life:
and they are they which testify of me." —John 5:39
