The Greatest Danger Of The New Bible Versions
by David J. Stewart | March 2016 | Updated October 2018
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.”
Wow, what a Scripture! Today, just as in the New Testament times, there are “MANY, WHICH CORRUPT THE WORD OF GOD.” In fact, the American Bible Society now tells us that there are approximately 900 English Bibles!!! The problem is that God only authored ONE BOOK!!! We have a solemn promise from God in Psalms 12:6-7 that He will PRESERVE His Word unto every future generation. Please read my article, The Ugly Truth About Today's Bible Versions.
Here's a comparison of Psalms 12:6-7—God's promise to preserve His pure Words unto every generation—Look how all of these new satanic Bible versions totally butcher, change and remove God's PROMISE to preserve His Words:
King James Bible (KJB)
Psalms 12:6-7, "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 Common English Bible (CEB)
Psalms 12:6-7, "The LORD's promises are pure, like silver that's been refined in an oven, purified seven times over! You, LORD, will keep us, protecting us from this generation forever."
The Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
Psalms 12:6-7, "The words of ADONAI are pure words, silver in a melting-pot set in the earth, refined and purified seven times over. You, ADONAI, protect us; guard us forever from this generation."
The Message Bible (MSG)
Psalm 12:6-7, "God's words are pure words, Pure silver words refined seven times In the fires of his word-kiln, Pure on earth as well as in heaven. God, keep us safe from their lies, From the wicked who stalk us with lies."
Christian Standard Bible (CSB)
Psalms 12:6-7, “The words of the Lord are pure words, like silver refined in an earthen furnace, purified seven times. You, Lord, will guard us; you will protect us from this generation forever.”
Good News Translation (GNT)
Psalm 12:6-7, "The wicked are everywhere, and everyone praises what is evil. Keep us always safe, O Lord, and preserve us from such people."
...AND ON THEY GO, THE NEW VERSIONS JUST KEEP COMING TO CORRUPT THE CHURCHES!!!

My, Oh my, what a wicked thing! What a bunch of lying deceivers!!! They've changed the Words of God to justify butchering and selling the Bible. If God only wrote one book, then there would be no justification to publish hundreds of new versions. As the old adage goes... Follow the money! What does your Bible read in Psalms 12:6-7??? Does it maintain God's PROMISE to preserve His pure words unto every generation, or does it say that he will protect the believer from the wicked? Clearly, God doesn't always protect believers from the wicked, which is why they were fed to the lions in Rome!!! Still today, Christians are being murdered in the Middle East, North Korea, and other dictatorships and Communist nations without God.
The greatest danger of all these Alexandrian counterfeit Bible versions today is that the next generation will completely reject the King James Bible. Many churches today are using multiple Bible versions, but the King James Bible is slowly being phased out. It is just a matter of time until the King James Bible is obsolete in most churches. If you investigate a little bit, as I have, you will discover that the modern Bible versions keep changing. As long as greed and the love of money exist (and they will until the Lord returns), more and more corrupt Bible versions will be published.
The greatest danger of the modern Bible versions is that young people are being misled to believe that we don't have God's inspired, perfect, inerrant, infallible, holy and pure words today!!! All we keep hearing from Bob Jones University, Liberty University, Ambassador Bible College, Hyles-Anderson College, and other apostate religious institutions is that we don't have an inspired Bible today! Folks, if it's not inspired by God, then it is MANMADE!!! If the Holy Spirit still speaks through His Word, then those words must absolutely be inspired!!! I believe that the King James Bible is inspired!!!!!!!
The greatest danger of the new Bible versions is the diminishing of God's Word!!! For every new Bible version published, it reduces the effectiveness of the whole in the churches that use them. That's why I say if you don't have a King James Bible, you don't have a Holy Bible!!! There is no other English Bible today which God has preserved for us. Some people are trying to bring back older, less purified versions of God's Word, like the Geneva Bible. Folks, there is nothing wrong with the precious and beloved King James Bible!!! The King James Bible was the seventh and final in a series of revisions to purify it. God knows what He is doing!!!
Humbly, I thank God that I am a born-again Christian and Baptist preacher, to whom God has raised up to take an uncompromising King James Bible stand against the Bible-corrupters, the woefully ignorant intelligencia, baby-killers, slackard pastors who refuse to preach the truth, vile sodomites, ungodly Hollywood perverts, Gospel perverts who require “repentance” as a change of life to be saved, raunchy Vevo music videos, the satanic lies of Evolution, the blatant crimes of The White House, the monstrous evil of Wall Street and the Federal Reserve thieves, and all the hordes of Hell attacking our youth these days! BLESS GOD, SOMEONE NEEDS TO STAND UP FOR GOD AGAINST THE EVILDOERS!!!
The greatest threat of all of these evils are the new counterfeit Bible versions. The reason why is because a popular myth is circulating in the churches today, that the King James Bible (which reads on average at a 5.8 grade level) is TOO HARD TO UNDERSTAND!!! No, we just live in a weak-kneed, worldly, selfish and lazy generation. There used to be a time in the United States when Bible study was honorable. But not today, everybody wants a comic book, magazine or Harry Potter book. God deliver us from sissy-britches ministers, who have lace on their underwear, the affluent snob Christian leadership team, the Caspar Milquetoast sort, yellowbellies—who shamefully support heathens like Dr. John MacArthur, preach the curse of Lordship Salvation, use and promote the satanic Bible versions, and praise the sacramental-salvation-teaching reprobate Martin Luther!!! What is wrong with preachers today?
The Greatest Danger is Change Itself
I wish I could inspire Christians to simply CARE. It matters how we present the Gospel. It matters what we believe doctrinally. It matters which Bible we use. It is not okay to use the Alexandrian perversions of God's Word. They all diminish the doctrine of Christ. The greatest threat is CHANGE ITSELF! Don't miss that! Satan fully knew that by setting a precedent that it is acceptable to change the Word of God, the churches became accustomed to having a new Bible version every few years. Consequently, there are now literally HUNDREDS of English Bible versions available!
Sadly, if you kindly confront a new evangelical pastor (including most independent Baptists) about their use of the Alexandrian perversions, they will likely claim not to sanction all of them; but when you press them to tell you “which ones” they don't support, they won't be able to name even one of them. Such was the case when I met with one of the associate pastors of the Harvest Baptist Church on Guam in 2015. In other words, he is superficial.
And likewise, I kindly spoke with another local pastor on Guam (who has since gone to teach at the superficial Pensacola Christian College in Florida), who was unable to tell me even one corruption in the modern Bible versions. I had once heard him in his church pulpit in 2017 say that we cannot trust all the modern Bible versions, but the guy was only repeating something he had heard. When the truth be told, if that pastor's life depended on it, he couldn't identify even one problem with the Alexandrian perversions. The fact that Pensacola Christian College would hire an ignorant, superficial, man like this confirms the allegations by Dr. William P. Grady in his controversial sermon called, “Seven Signs Of Pseudo King James Bible Onlyism” (which he preached at Temple Baptist Church in Powell, Tennessee in 2016; which clearly upset Pastor Clearance Sexton, evidenced at the end of the video). In the important sermon, Brother Grady indicts Pensacola Christian College for being “superficial” in their King James Bible onlyism, and HE IS 100% RIGHT!!! I have witnessed it firsthand, seeing the type of shallow, ignorant, peer following, yellow-bellied, cowardly pastors that they hire to teach at PCC. I am tired of hearing superficial pastors and Bible colleges profess to believe in the plenary verbal inspiration of the Holy Bible, but only in the “ORIGINAL AUTOGRAPHS!” The problem is that NO ONE has a copy of the original Scriptures in their possession!!!
And I would like to add that Dr. Bill Grady is absolutely right when he makes the following statement in his sermon, “Pseudo King James Bible onlyites are some of the most shallow Bible students on the earth!” The same pastor whom I just mentioned, who is now teaching Bible at Pensacola Christian College, who used to pastor a Baptist church on Guam that I attended in 2016-2018, was dumbfounded when I asked him if he believed Jesus' blood was on the Mercy Seat in Heaven. HE DIDN'T KNOW!!! This is the pastor of a New Testament church on Guam, who doesn't know where Jesus' blood is at, who cannot tell you one thing wrong with the modern Bible perversions, and is now going to teach at Pensacola Christian College in 2018! I wouldn't give you a dime for the superficial kind of shallow Christianity, pseudo King James Bible onlyism, that denies the verbal inspiration of the King James Bible, which PCC is promoting!!!
Granted, Dr. Peter S. Ruckman was a major heretic regarding salvation in the Old Testament and in the future Tribulation period. So just because someone is ultra King James Bible only, doesn't necessarily mean that they are good students of the Holy Bible. Romans 4:1-6 very plainly teaches that Abraham was justified by FAITH ALONE. Romans 4:2-3, “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.” The Scriptures couldn't be any clearer that Abraham was justified without works, by faith alone. Peter Ruckman is a liar, and it is a shame that so many preachers today (like Dr. William P. Grady) have been woefully deceived by him concerning salvation in the Old Testament. Please don't misunderstand, I fully support Dr. Ruckman's defense of the King James Bible, but I take the good and leave the bad. Unfortunately there is quite a bit of bad with Dr. Ruckman (e.g., he supports abortion, believes in aliens, okay with women wearing pants, et cetera). No Bible preacher is always correct in his doctrine, not one!
Here is one of the truest statements you'll ever read...
“There is a direct correlation between knowing the Bible and believing
—Pastor William P. Grady, “Seven Signs Of Pseudo King James Bible Onlyism”
Some of the most ignorant Bible students I have ever met, like the shameful pastors at Harvest Baptist Church on Guam, make light of the verbal inspiration of the Word of God. They are acceptant of multiple plans of salvation, multiple Bible versions, and endorse wicked ecumenical false prophets like Dr. Ravi Zacharias. Ephesians 5:10-11, “Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” Although we speak the truth in love, we cannot avoid offending people. Bad Christians are bad Christians, and they will get upset when you expose them! Ephesians 4:15, “But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.” The truth must be proclaimed!
And may I kindly say, as valiant as I have been as a solider of Jesus Christ in my battle against the Devil's inspiration-denying crowd (PCC, BJU, HAC, MBI, et cetera), I have been very gracious not to mention the personal names of these yellow-bellied church-destroying infiltrators. Those who make light of the ongoing battle over the inspiration of the King James Bible, are pulling on the same rope as the Devil. Anyone who denies the inspiration of the King James Bible is saying that God is a liar, Who failed to preserve His “very pure” Word (Psalms 119:140) unto every generation and forever (Psalms 12:6-7). If the King James Bible has errors in it, then Bible scholars become the final authority instead of the Holy Bible itself! Since the Bible scholars all disagree, we are left at the mercy of sinful, flawed men.
A man whom I love and am thankful for, Dr. Bob Gray Sr., wisely made the following life-changing statement:Bravo Brother Gray! Amen! I agree completely! I thank God for the simple, down-to-earth, practical, applicable, easy to understand, life-changing sermons by Pastor Bob Gray Sr., who continues...
“The best thing in the world to do is stay behind truth. I don't care how much it hurts. I don't care how much pain it is. Or how much the kids don't like it, or anybody don't like it—YOU STAY BEHIND TRUTH!!! Why? Cause it's right! And it'll protect you! And if the leader goes down, the followers are gonna follow...” —Dr. Bob Gray Sr., a quote from the sermon, Truth Vs. Change.This is one of the most important sermons that I've ever heard. This is great truth, which will change your life if you let it. ...
“The process of changing is what error is!” —Dr. Bob Gray Sr., a quote from the sermon, Truth Vs. Change.
“If you're saved tonight, you don't want to hold the truth in unrighteousness. Error is change. The process of changing is what error is. You don't go from truth to error, you go from truth to change; and everything that is born of change is error. Now the further from truth you travel, the more error you have. Error is infinite; truth is finite. Error never stops; truth has its limits.” —Dr. Bob Gray Sr., a life-changing quote from the sermon, Truth Vs. Change.
Amen! Change itself is the greatest threat behind the never-ending rash of new Bible versions, because little by little the Devil is removing the ancient landmark (Proverbs 22:28), and in so doing is changing, corrupting and destroying the churches. The true Bible-believing, fundamentalist, Christian, fights against this trend; but the sincerely deceived new evangelical goes along with the changes, deteriorating from one generation to the next, pulling on the same rope as the Devil. So I say to anyone reading this article, “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” (Jude 1:3).
“Truth is set. Now, I am protected by truth. Truth protects me. Satan tries to get to me, but truth protects me. But truth has limits over here and over here. The Bible is the Word of God and is truth, so it has limits. Now if I step out from behind the truth, I'm a target for the Devil. Is anybody listening to me? Now once I step outta here, then what happens is it's a slide from here, because there's nothing to stop me. But if I say, 'I'm going to follow truth,' and I hide behind truth, then that's protection for me. But when I become a rebel, and I step out away from truth, then I'm a target for the Devil. Is anybody listening to me? Then I'm a target for the Devil. Now, so you don't go from truth to error, you go from truth to change! Truth is set. Change is set, and it's infinite. That's why Romans one—you start out holding the truth in unrighteousness and you end up having sex with animals! I'm not making it up, I'm just telling you what the Bible says.” —Dr. Bob Gray Sr., a helpful quote from the sermon, Truth Vs. Change.
Someone Please Tell Today's Affluent Pastors That We Are At War!
I am so sick of so-called “Christian” leadership resorts—multimillion dollar 5-star immaculate mansion type deals, with big swimming pools and hot-tubs for America's church leaders. Many pastors today are receiving 6-digit salaries (At the time I wrote this article, the Salvation Army was paying $175,000 to its leader, now it's over $250,000 a year!). That's just sickening!!! Over half of Americans survive on less than $30,000 a year!!! Why should a so-called minister (servant) of the Lord make 10 times what most Americans earn. It is wickedness in my opinion!!! There is no honor in taking an extravagant salary. What a joke for someone to boast that it is a noble act to only get paid 10 times what the average hardworking American earns, rather than make 50 times like Franklin Graham, who paid himself a $1,200,000 salary in 2008! These are evil people, false Christians! Have you foolishly sent them money? I sure hope not.
If I had a one month “Christian leaders training camp,” there'd be barbwire, fox holes and dirt fields as a theme. I'd make it look like a World War I encampment. I'd use the official theme: “WE'RE AT WAR WITH THE DEVIL, THE WORLD AND THE FLESH!!!” I'd make the “leaders” crawl on their hands and knees through mud to humble them. We'd go door-to-door soulwinning every day!!! It would be a spiritual boot camp! For the entire month we'd only drink water, eat healthy foods, and there wouldn't be any televisions in their quarters!!! There wouldn't be any fancy hotel rooms. We'd stay in bunkers, like boot camp! Pastors nowadays are spoiled brats!
Quite frankly, I sincerely doubt if any of today's spoiled affluent Christian leaders would even attend such a life-changing event. If they did, I don't think they would make it past the first few days. Hence, our pathetic weak religious leaders today, who cannot even discern which Bible is God's Word. Today's pastors need to get a hold of God!!! 2nd Timothy 4:3, “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.”
Today's Youth Don't Have The King James Bible to Piggyback On
The King James Bible is INCORRUPTIBLE WORD (God's seed). The modern Bible revisions (which were translated from the Alexandrian texts) are CORRUPTIBLE WORD (Satan's seed). For an excellent MP3 sermon on the subject, please listen to Dr. Jack Hyles preach the needful truth, “THE BATTLE OF THE AGES” (1994). The raging battle of the ages has always been between God's incorruptible seed and Satan's corruptible seed. As America's churches are substituting the Devil's corruptible seed in place of God's incorruptible seed, those once great institutions are dying. ...
“When America lost her way to the right kind of church, she lost her way to living right!” —Brother Lester Roloff, a great quote from the awesome MP3 sermon titled, “The Titanic.”
For decades now, the older churchgoing generation (many of them actual Christians) have piggybacked upon the inspired King James Bible (incorruptible seed), so the threat of the new counterfeit Bible versions (corruptible seed) hasn't been as big a threat to them. However, the threat is extremely real and dangerous for the young generation, new church members, and bilingual people (who've been foolishly pointed to the new versions on the false assumption that they're “easier to read”). Folks, the new fake Bibles may be easier to read, but they are IMPOSSIBLE to comprehend if you're searching for THE TRUTH!!! Jumping out of a plane without a parachute will indeed get you to the ground faster, but at what cost? Likewise, these new Bible versions, which butcher and intentionally change the Words of God, are so radically different in their teachings that any honest and learned Christian believer could only conclude that they are of the Devil.
Prolific writer George Orwell correctly said that the “omission” (leaving something out) is the most deadly form of lie, which is exactly what Satan has done to the Word of God...
“The omission is the most powerful form of lie, and it is the duty of the historian to ensure that those lies do not creep into the history books.” —George Orwell, author of ‘1984’
The most shady and dishonest business people, whether they be realtors, car salesmen, attorneys, pastors or Bible publishers, are the ones who don't tell you all the facts! We see this evidenced in the dialogue between the serpent and Eve in the Garden of Eden. The serpent (according to 2nd Corinthians 11:3 and Revelation 20:2) was Satan. The Devil didn't give Eve all the facts! The serpent tricked Eve, deceiving her. The consequences were devastating!!! Oh, my friend, the serpent is still making empty promises today, perverting the meaning of repentance, and corrupting the plan of salvation, and distorting the person of Christ in the modern Bible PERversions. YOU CAN'T TRUST THE NEW BIBLE VERSIONS!!! Do you really think God is behind the insane Bible craze? One publisher claims, “This is it, this is God's Word.” Another publisher says, “No, this is the one, this is God's Word!” Which one friend? This one? That one? Ask the average preacher and you won't get a straight answer. The average churchgoer today has a dozen Bible versions on their bookshelf at home! If they don't understand one, they consult another. My friend, God only authored ONE BOOK!
For example: You'll never learn about the threat of “Lucifer” in the new Bible versions, because they've removed his name completely. Lucifer is creeping into the churches right before our very eyes undetected, in the new Bible versions. The Devil doesn't mind if the naive world pictures him as a red devil with a pitchfork, who torments people in Hell. Nothing could be further from the truth. God torments unbelievers in Hell, not the Devil (2nd Thessalonians 1:8-9). The Bible teaches that Satan is very beautiful in appearance (Ezekiel 28:17). We know that this prophecy in Ezekiel 28 against the Prince of Tyrus is a dual-prophecy (i.e., it has a double meaning), which also teaches about Lucifer (because Ezekiel 28:13-19 tells us that he was in the Garden of Eden, as well as placed in charge in Heaven, but his pride ruined him). Take note young people, Lucifer was destroyed because of his beauty and brilliance. Ezekiel 28:17, “Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.” Satan's primary targets are beautiful and handsome brilliant young people. SATAN WANTS YOU!!! Satan always goes after THE BEST!!!
Today's younger generation have been misled and wrongly taught to believe that the King James Bible was only for their grandparents, and is outdated, too prejudiced and old fashioned. I'm sick of hearing about “The Teen Bible” and “The Men's Bible” or “The Woman's Bible.” That “Women's Bible” nightmare is straight from the depths of Hell, teaching that God is actually “The Heavenly Mother” instead of The Heavenly Father. Boy, how wicked and dumb can people be? My friend, the King James Bible is everyone's Bible!!! I feel sorry for you if you have been deceived by the Devil and are using a water-down, modern, corrupted, counterfeit of God's Word. The inspired King James Bible, yes, that's the book for me!!!
The younger generation today, and bilingual Americans, are at the mercy of the counterfeit Bible versions, which change and pervert what it means to “REPENT,” thus corrupting the Gospel. WE ARE AT SPIRITUAL WAR WITH THE DEVIL!!!
Search The Scriptures!
Jesus said in John 5:39, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” 2nd Timothy 2:15, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” Although there are many helps, study aids and commentaries available today for the Bible student, there is also the grave and real danger that you will be misled and corrupted in so doing. You don't have to become a theologian to know THE TRUTH, but you do need to use your brain that God gave you and study, searching the Scriptures for the answers to life. The Bible contains all the answers! If you think that you know the Holy Bible and don't see all of life's answers, then you really don't know the Bible or the holy God of the Bible.
The Lord warned us in His Word that evil people would CHANGE the Words of God into a lie:
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.”
We see much twisting of the Scriptures today, by wicked reprobates who attempt to diminish the awfulness of the sin of homosexuality (a moral law - Leviticus 18:22), by comparing it with plowing a field with two different types of animals (a ceremonial law - Deuteronomy 22:10). That is like comparing apples with watermelons!
Even Peter, one of Christ's very apostles, had much difficulty understanding some of the apostle Paul's theological writings. But God wrote the Bible that way, for His own reasons, which is why we are commanded to study the Scriptures. Bible study isn't only for preacher boys and pastors, it's for anyone who wants to know THE TRUTH! It is a dangerous thing to tamper with the Holy Bible:
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.”
Many wicked people corrupt the Bible for money, which is the driving motivation behind all of the new copyrighted Bible versions. Balaam was a prophet-for-hire. Wicked people will do anything for money:
Jude 1:11, “Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.”
Friend, and I am being your friend by trying to help you in the Lord, the Illuminati (a generational group of Luciferian worshippers who control the world through the influence of Hollywood, media, books, government, and even most of the churches), have been plotting the destruction of America for centuries! They are largely Freemasons! But there are many other secret societies as well; such as, Bohemian Grove, Skull and Bones, Trilateral Commission, Council On Foreign Relations, Committee of 300, Bilderberg, Knights Templar, Rosicrucians and hundreds more.
You can spend an entire lifetime studying all the secret societies in an attempt to figure them out, or you can simply believe one Bible verse as a Christian to sum up the whole matter—2nd Corinthians 4:4, “In whom the god of this world [LUCIFER] hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” Luciferians have been plotting and working for a very long time to infiltrate and corrupt the churches. They've succeeded through the use of corrupted Bible versions, New Age oriented religious books, apostate TV and internet and radio preachers, et cetera. Rick Warren is an infiltrator. Warren's a member of The Council On Foreign Relations (CFR). Beware of The Emerging Church! The Devil is a slickster! Satan knows that you won't bite into a worm if you see the hook, so he hides the hook! Incrementally, our churches are being dismantled, brought into the homosexual agenda, perverted on what it means to repent and be born-again, truly becoming the pillar and ground of the New World Order!!!
As God-fearing Christians who are as wise as serpents, but as harmless as doves, we must expose the modern corrupt Bible versions, scrutinizing every line of text. Last I checked, God said His Words are “very pure.” Psalms 119:140, “Thy word is very pure: therefore thy servant loveth it.” The Psalmist loved the Holy Bible because he knew that IT WAS VERY PURE!!! Who wants a chicken-crap Bible version with thousands of errors in it? Who wants a dysfunctional Bible, period? Not me buddy! Did God lie to us when He promised to PRESERVE His Words unto every generation? I think not!
