Modern Bible Versions
Use The Same
Alexandrian Text As Jehovah's Witnesses
by David J. Stewart | May 2016
I have in front of me a book published in 1969 by the Jehovah's Witness titled, “The Kingdom Interlinear Translation Of The Greek Scriptures.” Here is a disturbing quote from the first page:
“Presenting a literal word-for-word translation into English under the Greek text as set out in 'The New Testament in the Original Greek'—The Text Revised by Brooke Foss Westcott D.D. and Fenton John Anthony Hort D.D.” (1948 Reprint) together with the New World Translation of the Christian Greek Scriptures, Revised Edition, a modern-language translation of the Westcott and Hort Greek text, first published by them in the year 1881 C.E., with which are included the valuable Foreword and the Appendix of the said translation, with numerous footnotes and an Explanation of the Symbols Used in the Marginal References.

You can easily verify on Wikipedia that Westcott and Hort's Greek translation came from the Alexandrian, Egypt manuscripts. These were corrupt texts. It shouldn't be surprising that Satan would corrupt the Words of God, as he has done so since the first humans were created in the Garden of Eve. In Genesis 3:1 the serpent (Satan according to Revelation 20:2) came to Eve and lied, changing God's Words. God told Adam and Eve in Genesis 2:16b-17, “Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” Satan changed God's Word, lying to Eve in Genesis 3:1, “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, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”
Satan tricked Eve, by making a false statement in the form of a seemingly innocent question. My friend, the Devil is much smarter than you or me. The Devil has been deceiving people, leading them into the fires of Hell for thousands of years. Don't think that Satan isn't a master liar and con artist. The Holy Bible warns us about Satan's methods, telling us that he comes to us in sheep's clothing, appearing as an angel of light; and also Satan's ministers appear as righteous men (2nd Corinthians 11:13-15). This couldn't be more true than in the case of Brooke Westcott (1825-1901) and Fenton Hort (1828-1892).
Who were Westcott and Hort? They were two unsaved Bible critics! Both Westcott and Hort were two non-Christian Anglican ministers. They believed the Alexandrian philosophy that “there is no perfect Bible.” They hated the King James Bible and its Antiochian Greek text, the Textus Receptus. [The infidelity of Westcott and Hort is well documented in Evangelist Sam Gipp's awesome 1987 book titled, “An Understandable History of the Bible” (.pdf file). Proverbs 14:12, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” The modern so-called “easier to read” Bible revisions may seem right, but they are of the Devil, corruptible word, that bring death.
There's a lot of heresy online written by Baptist preachers concerning the Word of God. Many foolish and woefully ignorant theologians defend and promote the Alexandrian texts, which clearly attack the deity of Jesus Christ. Look inside any modern Bible you'd like, and you will horrifyingly discover that they brutally attack Christ's deity in all key Scripture passages. It is tragic that so many Baptist preachers refuse to see this injustice to the Words of God. Even more tragic is that most Baptist pastors have plainly been warned of what Satan is doing, corrupting the Words of God, but like the chief rulers in John 12:42-43, “they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God” (verse 43). Only the trustworthy King James Bible upholds the Godhead, deity of Jesus, and His preeminence.
Thank God for the small handful of faithful Independent Fundamental Baptist preachers (and others) who uphold the incorruptible Antiochan (Antioch, Syria) text, the Textus Receptus (or Majority Text), from which our beloved King James Bible comes!
The satanic cult of Jehovah's Witnesses (JW's) officially began in 1874, founded by Charles Taze Russell. The JW's deny Christ's deity. They teach that Jesus is “a god,” but not “almighty God.” JW's believe Christ resurrected in spirit only, not bodily. JW's deny the Godhead (Trinity). They deny the Person of the Holy Spirit. JW's deny the existence of an eternal burning Hell for all Christ-rejecters. Similar to the satanic cult of Seventh-day Adventism (SDA's), JW's teach annihilation (you cease to exist).
Please understand that the Jehovah's Witnesses deny Jesus' deity and the Godhead. No wonder they love the Alexandrian text and the heretical Greek translation produced by Westcott and Hort. As I showed you earlier, JW's used the Alexandrian text for their New World Translation (NWT). Yes, it was named in lieu of the New World Order (NWO). In order for Satan to prepare the world to receive the coming Antichrist, he needs to destroy all existing religions and governments. To achieve this goal, Satan has used Luciferian occult groups to corrupt the Bible and infiltrate the churches. Most of our Independent Baptist churches today are more interested in surviving, than they are fighting the good fight of faith. Shame on any pastor who uses, supports and promotes the modern Bible revisions! They are corruptible seed. Genesis 3:15, “And I will put enmity (make enemies) between thee (Satan) and the woman, and between thy seed (corruptible Bible revisions) and her seed (Jesus Christ, the incorruptible Word of God); it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” All modern Bible versions are corrupted seed!
Wake up! Get right with God! Throw your Bible paraphrases into the garbage can! Use ONLY the King James Bible!!!
The apostle Peter had difficulty understanding some of the Pauline Epistles (don't we all). Peter didn't ask for a simpler Bible, or a revision, or a paraphrase. No, he left the Word of God as it was written! 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.” It is evil to tamper with the Words of God. The fact that the word “sodomite” has been removed from the modern Bible revisions ought to raise a red flag! Oh, how foolish are many pastors today! Oh, how foolish are many church congregations today! Oh, how foolish are many deacon boards today!
And may I say, truthfully, if any church or Bible college remains silent on the matter of the “THE BATTLE OF THE AGES” (an awesome MP3 by Dr. Hyles) over the Holy Bible, they are cowardly and accomplices to Satan's evil agenda. Anyone who loves the Lord Jesus Christ can plainly see that Satan is intentionally corrupting God's pure words to deceive people. All of the modern Bible revisions remove every mention of someone “worshipping” Jesus, and instead changes it to “bow” or “knelt.” If I accidentally drop something on the ground and kneel down to pick it up, I haven't “worshipped” that object. Likewise, a person could kneel before a king in homage without worshipping him. The King James Bible wonderfully upholds Christ's deity, that He is almighty God. In the pure words of God, people “worshipped” Jesus because He walked this earth as God almighty in the flesh.
You need to understand how the New International Version (NIV) was assembled. The Committee On Biblical Translation (CBT) gathered together (by invitation) several dozen religious groups to get their opinions, to determine what Scriptures would be butchered, changing the Words of God to satisfy the whims and skepticism of differing religious groups. Consequently, the NIV is a watered-down manuscript of jibber-jabber, not the inspired and preserved Words of God. Even the most unlearned Bible student can clearly see that the modern Bible versions all disrespect, distort, damage and diminish the doctrine of the Lord Jesus Christ!!!
For example: 1st Timothy 3:16 in the King James Bible reads, “GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH” (This refers to the triune Godhead becoming incarnate in the man Jesus Christ); but the New International Version ridiculously changes it to a meaningless, “HE APPEARED IN THE FLESH.” The former attests to Christ's deity, the latter says nothing! The popular Easy-To-Read Version (ERV) changes it to a meaningless, “CHRIST WAS SHOWN TO US IN HUMAN FORM.” The Voice changes it to a meaningless, “HE WAS REVEALED IN THE FLESH.” The New American Standard Bible (NASB) changes it to a meaningless, “HE WHO WAS REVEALED IN THE FLESH.” Only the authorized King James Bible, which is the inspired and preserved Words of God, teaches the truth that GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, fully proclaiming the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ!!!!!!! When you saw Jesus, you saw the Father! When you spoke with Jesus, you spoke with the Holy Spirit! Colossians 2:9, “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”
If you are using and supporting the modern Bible revisions, YOU ARE GOD'S ENEMY!!! That is what we read in Genesis 3:15. God said that He would make enemies between the corruptible seed of Satan and the incorruptible Word of God. 1st Peter 1:23, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” You cannot be saved from the Alexandrian text! They are corrupted. The Alexandrian text teach Lordship Salvation in Romans 10:9. The Alexandrian text perverts the meaning of repentance, thus changing the plan of salvation. The purpose of Westcott and Hort producing a Greek New Testament, based upon the Alexandrian manuscripts, was to begin the process of destroying America's churches. Few churchgoers realize that the most popular revision in churches today, the New International Version (NIV), changed its content by 38.8% between the NIV 1984 and the NIV 2011. Praise God, the King James Bible hasn't changed one bit!!!
If your church is using any of the modern Bible revisions, you are in the same boat as the Jehovah's Witness' satanic cult, using the same corrupted Alexandrian texts which attack the Lord Jesus Christ!!! If that's you, don't you dare sing about how much you love Jesus, because Jesus is the Word of God (Revelation 19:13; John 1:1-3 14 - All quotes are only from the King James Bible). You might as well follow “ANOTHER JESUS” (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4) if you are using the New American Standard Bible (NASB), or The Voice (VOICE), or the Easy-To-Read Version (ERV), or Good News For Modern Man (GNT), or the New Century Translation (NCT), or the New Living Translation (NLT), or the New King James Version (NKJV), or the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV), or The Message (MSG), or the Modern English Version (MEV), or the New Life Version (NLV) or the Lexham English Bible (LEB), and hundreds more PERversions of God's Words!!!
DO YOU CARE? Bob Jones University doesn't care! Moody Bible Institute doesn't care! Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary doesn't care! Dallas Theological Seminary doesn't care! Bible colleges all across America don't care! WE'LL I CARE! GOD CARES!!!!!!! It matters which Bible we use, teach and support! It is sad to know that Bible colleges don't care about Satan corrupting God's Word (They might step on some important toes). If you care, speak up! If you don't believe the King James Bible is God's inspired, inerrant, preserved, Words, then tell me which one you think it is! But don't you tell me that the Creator of the universe was too wimpy to keep His promise to preserve His “pure words” unto every generation in 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.” All of the modern Bible revisions change (pervert) this passage of Scripture, saying that God preserves the saints instead of His pure words. Of course the Devil changed it, because if this promise is still valid (and it is), then the 900 English revisions of the Bible cannot all be the incorruptible words of God!!!
Have you believed a lie? If you use, support and teach from the counterfeit modern Bible revisions, don't you dare criticize the Jehovah's Witnesses, because you are using THE SAME Greek Alexandrian text that they have been using for over a century! And may I say kindly, you are just as woefully blinded and ignorant to the truth as the JW's are. But WOE UNTO YOU PREACHERS who have been warned, yet you still continue using, teaching, preaching and supporting Satan's corrupt seed!!! Mark 7:9b, “Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.” Using the corrupted Bible revisions has become a tradition amongst neo-evangelical churches in America. They're now the Devil's camps, using corruptible seed.
Thank God for the inspired, infallible, inerrant, perfect, preserved, authoritative, authorized, 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.”
