Beware Of Satan's Latest “New International Reader's Version” (NIRV): The Antichrist's 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.”
By David J. Stewart | October 2014
Satan is a master deceiver and he knows that the most effective way to deceive the church is with confusion, incrementally moving the ancient landmark, changing the Bible a little at a time until we cannot even recognize it anymore. By the way, the NIV butchers are at it again, publishing their new “New International Reader's Version” (NIRV), and hundreds of supporting sales products related to it. Tragically, the NIRV is aimed at children. Please don't let your children become children of the Devil by giving them a corrupt Bible version produced by occultists in the 19th century. Hell will be hot!
Listen to what Hitler's Nazi-fascist minister of propaganda said about the ease of deceiving people...
“It would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and a psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in fact a circle. They are mere words, and words can be molded until they clothe ideas and disguise.” ―Joseph Goebbels
The preceding quote is important. Learn it, because it explains the dangers behind the modern corrupt Bible versions. I was thinking today that both the Bible and money are printed on paper. They both use ink. They both contain numbers and letters. So what's the difference? What makes one piece of paper with ink and characters any different than the other? Likewise, words can be assigned different meanings. This is what Joseph Goebbels is saying. They are mere words, and words can be redefined to mean anything that we want them to mean. This is why it is so utterly important that we contend for the Christian faith and “Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die” as the Bible says in Revelation 3:2. Our precious churches are dying because Satan has succeeded in taking away the holy inspired Words of God.
Do you think Satan is less effective at lying and deceiving than Joseph Goebbels? Notice that he uses the word “disguise.” Satan has disguised his corrupt fake Bible versions as the holy Word of God. The NIV series will continue to corrupt the Word of God, incrementally, preparing the world to receive the coming Antichrist! Let me show you some examples.
NIRV Perverts the Plan of Salvation
The following is a comparison between Mark 1:15 in the King James Bible, the hellish NIV and the new satanic NIRV. Here you can clearly see the way that Satan is incrementally, gradually, corrupting the Word of God...
KING JAMES BIBLE — Mark 1:15, “And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.”
NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION — Mark 1:15, “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”
NEW INTERNATIONAL READER'S VERSION — Mark 1:15, “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God is near. Turn away from your sins and believe the good news!”
Do you see how sneaky the Devil is? They have corrupted the meaning of repentance. The Greek word for “repent” here is metanoeo, in the King James Bible, which means “to think differently.” The Committee On Biblical Translation has taken upon themselves to corrupt the Bible to mean something entirely different than what God said. The NIRV wrongly defines repent to mean “turn away from your sins,” which is adding human effort to the simple plan of salvation. No where in the entire Bible are we ever told to turn away from our sins to be saved. It is Roman Catholic theology. Look in any modern dictionary under “repent” and you'll see that it is defined as “turning from sins,” but the Bible defines repent as a change of mind or to think differently. By the way, beware of all the Greek lexicons and Bible study aids which have been corrupted as well. For an excellent book on the subject, please read Dr. Gail Riplinger's excellent book, “Hazardous Materials” (Greek and Hebrew Study Dangers - The Voice Of Strangers).
Beware of today's corrupt theology that defines repentance as amending one's ways, bettering one's life, forsaking the old paths of sin, turning from sin, and surrendering one's life to Christ in order to be saved. These are proper in their place, but are absolutely not required for salvation. The Bible irrefutably teaches that we are saved solely by the gift of God's grace, by the sacrifice of His only begotten Son on the cross for our sins and His resurrection from the grave. 1st Thessalonians 4:14, “For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.” Unholy hands on the Bible have perverted the plan of salvation. The NIV turns salvation into a process.
Pastor Charles Stanley errantly teaches, “To be saved, you must place faith in Christ for the forgiveness of sins. That decision requires a change of mind, or repentance, about your way of life. Both happen at the same time.” Mr. Stanley is wrong, repentance is not a change of mind about your way of life. The Bible doesn't tell us what the change of mind is concerning. Romans 3:19, “Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.”
Repentance is seeing yourself as an unholy sinner in the eyes of a holy God and realizing that you are totally incapable of saving yourself. It is impossible to get saved without repenting, because repentance is what compels you to put your trust in Christ, and repentance and faith happen at the same time. Repentance is simply a change of mind, nothing more or less. Whereas the unsaved world doesn't want anything to do with Jesus Christ because they don't want to be reproved for their sins (John 3:20); the person who believes on Jesus to be saved does so because they've changed their mind and are now acknowledging their sinnership.
NIRV Publishers Condemn Themselves by Selling Bibles to Make Money
What knuckleheads and hypocrites! They pervert 2nd Corinthians 2:17 from corrupting the wording of God to selling the Word of God...
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 — 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.”
Zondervan sells Bibles to make money!
The 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 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.
By the way, the original 1984 NIV has been discontinued...
Zondervan to Discontinue the Original NIV Bible
Having failed to successfully promote an alleged "gender inclusive" version of the Bible from 2005 to 2009, publishing giant, Zondervan, has elected to try again. This time, however, instead of publishing an edited version of the NIV in addition to the standard 1984 edition, Zondervan has elected to simply kill the original NIV and call what's coming out this month an "update." If some of the problems inherent in the original NIV weren't troubling enough, Zondervan editors and management appear bent on revising it to fit the tastes of the modern world, i.e., inclusion and feminism. As they do, they also appear to be content with alienating at least a portion of their base in the process.
In reality, the "updated" NIV appears to be little more than a rehash of the aforementioned 2005 gender neutral mishap known as Today's New International Version (TNIV). According to a March 14, 2011, article in The Christian Post, statistics compiled by Christian web techies Robert Slowley and John Dryer show that "31 percent of the TNIV is retained in the updated NIV." The Christian Post story also reported that The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, one of the leading critics of the short-lived TNIV, have released a statement saying it could not recommend the new NIV Bible because of "over 3,600 gender-related problems" that were previously described in its critique of the TNIV. ...

We are at war ladies and gentlemen, and we are losing the battle. Thankfully, we are ultimately on the winning side in Jesus Christ!
The “Easy To Read” Lie Behind Modern Corrupt Bible Versions
NIRV Says Jesus Didn't Want to Hold On to Being God
The NIV butchers attack Christ's deity (that He is almighty God) by corrupting Philippians 2:6...
KING JAMES BIBLE — Philippians 2:6, “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God.”
NEW INTERNATIONAL READER'S VERSION — Philippians 2:6, “In his very nature he was God. But he did not think that being equal with God was something he should hold on to.”
Do you see how the NIRV totally 180 degrees, says the exact opposite of the King James Bible! Ladies and gentleman, there is not one verse in the entire King James Bible where Jesus downplays His deity. The Bible says that Jesus humbled Himself as a man, but He never said that He didn't think He should be equal with God the Father.
NIRV Changes Jesus' Words from “my Father” to “the Father”
Look how the NIRV perverts Christ's deity further in John 10:30...
KING JAMES BIBLE — John 10:30, “I and my Father are one.”
NEW INTERNATIONAL READER'S VERSION — John 10:30, “I and the Father are one.”
Notice that they change “my Father” to “the Father,” implying that God is not Jesus' Father, and thus, Jesus is not the Son of God. You must understand that the Devil hates Jesus Christ. You must understand that Satan's primary goal is to convince people that Jesus was a great man, a powerful influence, a charismatic leader, a major prophet, a gifted speaker and a miracle worker, but NOT THE SON OF GOD, THAT IS, THE INCARNATE WORD, GOD ALMIGHTY IN THE FLESH.
Revelation 1:8 in the King James Bible calls Jesus “the almighty,” but the NIRV changes it to “the Mighty One.” There's a big difference between being mighty verses almighty! Jehovah's Witnesses (JW's) errantly claim that Jesus is “a god,” but not “The God.” In fact, JW's claim that Michael the archangel became Jesus on earth, and then returned as Michael to Heaven. This is satanic doctrine. In sharp contrast, the Bible teaches that Jesus came to earth as the Godhead incarnate.
NIRV Brutally Attacks the Godhead and Deity of Jesus Christ
Look how the Devil has messed-up the Word of God in Colossians 2:9, attacking the Godhead and Christ's deity...
KING JAMES BIBLE — Colossians 2:9, “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”
NEW INTERNATIONAL READER'S VERSION — Colossians 2:9, “God’s whole nature is living in Christ in human form.”
Huh? Whoa! Talk about butchering the Bible. Zondervan publishers and those involved in producing the NIV series are shady hucksters, who've corrupted the Word of God to broaden their marketing base as much as possible. It breaks my heart that Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches are as indifferent as anybody on the issue! It is wickedness!
Modern corrupt Bible versions remove the word godhead. All three mentions of the word godhead (Acts 17:29; Romans 1:20 and Colossians 2:9) are completely stricken from all modern corrupt Bible versions. Wake up my friends, because Satan is attacking the Godhead and the deity of Christ Jesus. I challenge you to look up other Scriptures in the NIRV, which you can freely read online and search its contents. God's nature wasn't living in Christ; but rather, God the Father and the Holy Spirit indwelt the Savior, manifesting themselves to the world in the person of Jesus Christ.
Jesus is almighty God! 1st Timothy 3:16, “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” John 1:1-2 and 14, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. ... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” Jesus came to earth as the incarnate Word, and the Word was God!
Jesus Did Not Spill His Blood!
I could give you hundreds of serious problems with the NIRV. Here's another blunder, teaching bullcrap theology, saying that Jesus spilled His blood like some bumbling drunk...
KING JAMES BIBLE — Hebrews 9:12, “Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.”
NEW INTERNATIONAL READER'S VERSION — Hebrews 9:12, “He did not enter by spilling the blood of goats and calves. He entered the Most Holy Room by spilling his own blood. He did it once and for all time. He paid the price to set us free from sin forever.”
Hebrews 12:24 teaches that Jesus “SPRINKLED” His precious blood on the heavenly mercy seat, which is what the Old Testament high-priest did once a year in the holy of holies to atone for the sins of the people. Hebrews 12:24, “And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.”
NIRV Perverts Biblical Curse Upon Booze Drinkers
In Proverbs 20:1 of the King James Bible, the Word of God teaches that intoxicating beverages mock the idiot who drinks them, but the corrupt NIRV says that your only a fool if led down the wrong path by them...
KING JAMES BIBLE — Proverbs 20:1, “Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.”
NEW INTERNATIONAL READER'S VERSION — Proverbs 20:1, “Wine causes you to make fun of others, and beer causes you to start fights. Anyone who is led down the wrong path by them is not wise.”
The Bible says you're a fool even if you drink booze at all (and that includes all forms of intoxicating alcoholic beverages). You'd be surprised how many drunks started off by having just a little glass of wine with their meals.
NIRV Corrupts Revelation 11:8 Concerning the Wicked City of Jerusalem
There are numerous theological blunders in the NIRV in this Scripture. Notice that the NIRV changes “our Lord” to “their Lord.” These unholy Bible-butchers don't know the Lord Jesus Christ and are not saved, which is why they don't want to claim Jesus Christ as “our Lord”...
KING JAMES BIBLE — Revelation 11:8, “And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.”
NEW INTERNATIONAL READER'S VERSION — Revelation 11:8, “Their bodies will lie in the street of the great city where their Lord was nailed to the cross. The city is sometimes pictured as Sodom, or as Egypt.”
Notice that the Word of God calls Jerusalem (the city where Christ was crucified) Sodom and Egypt spiritually. These are historically very wicked places, which are equaled by the wicked city of Jerusalem who crucified their Messiah. Today, in 2014, Tel Aviv, Israel is the homosexual tourist destination of the world. Less than 2.5% of Israel's population claim to be Christians. Israel is a wicked nation. The NIRV corrupts the Bible and says that Jerusalem is sometimes pictured as Sodom and Egypt, but the King James Bible says spiritually that THEY ARE Jerusalem. The plot for world government began long ago in the ancient wicked world. Today, the Illuminati control Israel and reign over the kings of the earth. Jerusalem is the great city, “The Great Whore” (Revelation 17:18).
The NIRV is the Antichrist's Bible, corrupt as can be, filled with lies. A corrupt Bible can only produce corrupt doctrines. Satan is the author of confusion in our churches. Here's a list of just some of the available Bible versions today. If the matter weren't so serious it would be utterly laughable. Folks, God only wrote ONE BOOK.

NIRV Corrupts Romans 10:9-10 & Teaches a False Plan of Salvation
The King James Bible plainly teaches that we are saved by believing in our heart on the Lord Jesus Christ. Since people cannot see into our heart to know whether we are saved or not, they can only go by the words of our mouth. There is no way of knowing if a person is truly born-again apart from the direct testimony of their own mouth. Confession is not something that a person does to be saved; confession is something that a saved person does! This is what the Bible is saying. You don't have to confess “Jesus is Lord” to be saved, which is ridiculous...
KING JAMES BIBLE — Romans 10:9-10, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
NEW INTERNATIONAL READER'S VERSION — Romans 10:9-10, “Say with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord.' Believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead. Then you will be saved. With your heart you believe and are made right with God. With your mouth you say that Jesus is Lord. And so you are saved.”
You don't make Jesus Lord, He is Lord!!! When you get saved, Jesus is automatically your Lord. The Greek word here for “Lord” means kurious, “Supreme in authority.” Receiving Christ as one's Lord is entirely a matter of discipleship and followship, not salvation. 1st Timothy 4:10, “For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.” Jesus is the Saviour of ALL MEN, specially of those that believe!!! If you choose to go to Hell, it will only be because you rejected Christ as your personal Savior. It has nothing to do with receiving Jesus as your Lord. Jesus is the Savior of all men, but you must receive Him personally as your Savior to be saved. You do this by receiving the Gospel as payment for your sins. By simply believing that Christ died in your place on the cross to pay for YOUR SINS, and was raised up from the dead three days later, you are saved (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). It's that simple.
The false Bible translation and heretical teaching in today's churches that you must proclaim “Jesus is Lord” to be saved turns the plan of salvation into a process, instead of the new birth that God intended for it to be. Satan's greatest weapon is to con people into living the Christian life without ever being born-again!
NIRV Removes Mention of Worshipping Christ
The King James Bible says that the 24 elders worshipped Jesus Christ; but the NIRV just says they worshipped...
KING JAMES BIBLE — Revelation 5:14, “The four living creatures said, 'Amen.' And the elders fell down and worshiped.”
NEW INTERNATIONAL READER'S VERSION — Revelation 5:14, “And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.”
Again, we see how the NIV series detracts from Christ's preeminence. They remove every mention of anyone worshipping the Lord Jesus Christ. Listen to what Hitler's Nazi-fascist minister of propaganda said about the ease of deceiving people...
“It would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and a psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in fact a circle. They are mere words, and words can be molded until they clothe ideas and disguise.” ―Joseph Goebbels
Again, do you think Satan is less effective at lying and deceiving than Joseph Goebbels? Notice that he uses the word “disguise.” Satan has disguised his corrupt fake Bible versions as the holy Word of God. Goebbels says that circle and square are “mere words.” When he says “mere words,” he means that the power of words is in the ideas which they convey (and that is easy to manipulate). By simply redefining a single word, I can change the entire meaning of something. Thus, a subway can refer to an underground train system or a restaurant that serves sub-sandwiches. Satan is has redefined what it means to repent, to be born-again, and what it means to be a Christian. We must fight the Devil by upholding the true Biblical meaning of these terms.
A good example of what Goebbels is talking about is the twisting of the word “wicked” nowadays. It has become commonplace in Hollywood today to call cool and fun things “wicked cool” or just “wicked.” Literally, our youth are being indoctrinated to believe that “wicked is good!” If wicked means good, then prey tell me, what word remains in the Holy Bible to describe the awfulness of sin?
Other examples are the Biblical words: faith, repentance and salvation. These words have been redefined by false prophets to mean something entirely different than what they used to mean. For example: The word “repent” in modern dictionaries means “to turn from sin,” but when Jesus said to repent concerning salvation, He always meant “to think differently.” Hence, Biblical repentance is to change your mind from what you want to do to get to Heaven, to what God says you must do to get to Heaven. It is realizing that you are a guilty sinner in the eyes of a holy God, understanding that you cannot save yourself. That's what repentance is, a change of mind, to think differently, which compels a person to believe on Christ as their Savior.
Repentance and faith happen together, at the same time, and are inseparable. Repentance is not merely admitting that you are a sinner, but realizing that you have sinned against a holy God. You must acknowledge that you are a sinner in God's eyes. But repentance never has meant “to turn away from your sins,” which is human effort and a false plan of salvation. Modern English defines the word “repent” as “turning from sins,” which is Roman Catholic in origin. Turning from sins is a fruit (result) of genuine repentance, but not required as part of repentance to be saved.
I'm tired of false ministers teaching that if there is no fruit, then their is no tree root (faith). We learn in the parable of the seeds which fell upon four different types of ground in Luke 8:12-15, that the second and third group of seeds sprouted into new life (they were born-again), but never bore any fruit because of the shallow and thorny soil upon which they fell. Most Christians today are as the third group of seeds, which began to grow, but were choked by the cares, riches and pleasures of this earthly life, and so they remained fruitless. My friend, join me in the fourth group, who took heed to the Word of God and bore much fruit. There is much work to be done preaching the Gospel, but you MUST PREACH THE ACCURATE GOSPEL! Here's some awesome books to help you understand, titled “I NEVER KNEW YOU!” by Michael Bowen and “WHAT IS THE GOSPEL?” by Harry Ironside.
In this previous example, you can clearly see how Satan has completely changed the plan of salvation merely by altering the idea which a single word conveys. Satan has redefined our words. This is what is so deadly about “New Testament In The Original Greek,” compiled by Brooke Westcott and Fenton Hort. And as I showed you earlier, Mark 1:15 has been perverted in the NIRV from “Repent ye” to “Turn away from your sins.” Satan is a master deceiver!
Please understand that from an earthly perspective, there was no difference between Cain and Abel, except that Cain was a farmer and Abel was a shepherd. They both worked hard. They were both capable young men. Yet, when they brought their sacrifice to God, the Lord accepted Abel's offering but rejected Cain's. Why? It is because Cain tried to impress God with the best of his grain, which he prepared from the fields. Cain tilled the soil, sowed the seeds and reaped his crops. In sharp contrast, Abel slew a lamb and shed its blood, which demonstrated his faith in the coming Lamb of God. Cain was self-righteous, but Abel trusted in God's righteousness!
Likewise, Biblical Christianity teaches that a man is saved by faith alone in Christ's death on the cross for our sins, and His resurrection. Lordship Salvation teaches partial faith in Christ plus human effort. Cain trusted in human effort, but Abel trusted in the Lord. Eternal life is a gift. You cannot earn it. Man has no part in his own salvation. Our part is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and God does the rest!
How Long Halt Ye Between Two Opinions?
1st Kings 18:21, “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.”
Let me tell you something, Bob Jones PERversity, Moody Bible SINstitute and other ecumenical Bible colleges today (and their graduates pastoring churches) can only hobnob with the Devil's Bible-butchering gang for so long, until they will ultimately be forced to either plunge into total sinful compromise and gross apostasy, or take a stand against the modern corrupt Bible versions.
Look at this big mess. Folks, God only wrote ONE BOOK. The following statistics reveal the confusion and utter perversion which Satan is deliberately causing in our churches today (and that includes Independent Fundamental Baptist Churches). Notice that the updated NIV 2011 is 38.8% different than the original NIV 1984...
The NIV 2011 should be considered the offspring of the TNIV (Today’s NIV), and the grandson of the NIV 1984. The genetic stock shared by all three translations is 18859 verses, which is 60.7% verse similarity. Some genetic traits skip a generation, and this is the case 0.6% of the time, where the NIV 1984 and the NIV 2011 share 171 verses of commonality against the TNIV. But as one would imagine, the child is more similar to the parent, and the TNIV and the NIV 2011 share 31.3% genetic makeup, or 9736 verses. But genetics alone cannot prevent mutations and variation, so the NIV 2011 is unique 7.5% of the time, or 2320 verses of originality. Broken down, this means that the NIV 2011 is 38.8% different than the NIV 1984 and 8% different than the TNIV. (See Robert Slowley. John Dyer has slightly different figures).

Bless God, the good ole King James Bible hasn't changed one bit! Amen! The Devil isn't going to stop changing the Bible. Each succeeding new version, particularly the NIV series is going to wax worse and worse as the Bible teaches. 2nd Timothy 3:12, “Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. The churches are being deceived. They might as well begin a “Bible-of-the-month-club.” Heresy is creeping into our Independent fundamental Baptist churches by the hour. 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.” Tragically, it's today's shameful pastors who won't tolerate sound doctrine (the truth) anymore.
I handed my former Independent Fundamental Baptist pastor the excellent book by Dr. Al Lacy titled, “NIV: The Antichrist's Bible.” It offended him greatly. I was called into the church office by the pastors and given an ultimatum to stop distributing the book or be asked to leave. They said the book was “divisive” in the church. Bless God, the truth is always “divisive” (dividing). That's why Jesus said apostates won't tolerate sound doctrine in the last days. Sound doctrine is the truth of God's Word. Bless God, I agree with Pastor Bob Gray Sr. down in Longview, Texas who said we were better off when our Baptist churches were regularly splitting!
Today's pastors hypocritically say publicly that they desire to know the truth. They hypocritically claim from the church pulpit to be friends of the truth. But in reality, they censor the truth, picking and choosing what they will or won't allow concerning the truth. They want to stand behind the Bible, but they don't want to takes sides on which Bible to stand behind, even though there are 65,000 words that have been removed or changed in the NIV compared to the King James Bible (and as I just showed you, even the NIV 2011 differs from the NIV 1984 by 38.8%). And as I've just shown you from the NIRV (as compared to our beloved King James Bible), it's a gigantic theological nightmare. In the old days pastors could get by with indifference, but no longer. Satan is butchering the Bible so badly that only a total reprobate pastor would support this bullcrap today in the NIV Bible series.
I triple-dog dare you to prove me wrong. Each new Bible version moves the landmark a little further to the left (error), diminishing Christ's deity and the Godhead. You keep a watchful eye on these new Bibles that are going to be coming out! You watch closely what the updated NIV versions doctrinally change, specifically concerning our Lord Jesus Christ and His deity and Godhead. The truth is that the world is waiting for their coming messiah, the Antichrist, and they are attempting to bring the churches in line with the New World Order by tampering and corrupting the Words of God. I'll stick with the unchanging King James Bible!!!!!!!
The new NIRV (updated NIV) has taken the Devil's tampering with the Word of God even further into the spiritual toilet bowl of modern intellectualism. There's nothing more sad (and it would be laughable if the matter weren't so serious), than some moron who claims to be a Greek expert, who doesn't have enough sense to know that he has been handed a fraudulent manuscript by the Devil. I am speaking about the corrupt Alexandrian, Egypt, manuscripts upon which Westcott and Hort's Greek work is based, from which all modern corrupt Bible versions are translated.
No Greek expert knows as much about the truths of God's Word than the old-fashioned hell, fire and damnation preacher who walks with God!!! Our religious seminaries are filled with Greek scholars who are woefully ignorant of Biblical truth. Go figure! You don't get truth from knowing Greek; but rather, from spending time walking with God in His holy Word and depending upon Him through constant prayer. Too many of our pastors spend time reading books, blogs, business and sports, but don't abide in God's Word. You can tell on Sunday by the fruit of their preaching, or lack thereof.
The worst pastors in the world are the ones who go along to get along. One thing that I learned about Bob Jones University's (BJU) graduates (at least the pastors and evangelists that I've known) is that they don't stand. I'm sure there are others who do stand. But the ones I know don't stand. BJU is neo-evangelical. They love to talk about wisdom from the pulpit, but they never preach on Hell, fire or damnation. I can't speak for all of them, just from what I've seen firsthand. I won't mention any names, but my former pastor just got back from the inauguration of the new president of Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina. They're close personal friends. They've got their little clique of ministerial friends. They won't go against each other or break away from the religious temperature of their particular crowd.
BJU refuses to take a stand against modern corrupt Bibles. They are sitting idle on the sidelines, instead of being faithful soldiers as God wants us to be (2nd Timothy 2:3-4). The popular attitude these days in apostate mainstream new-evangelicalism is to be a good Christian, but not an offensive Christian who takes a stand. There is no debate if you read Revelation 3:15-16, where God says He wants us to be hot or cold, but not lukewarm. God vomits out lukewarm Christianity. What is lukewarm? It means to be halt between two opinions, middle-of-the-road, trying to make both sides happy, not taking a stand for God. 1st Kings 18:21, “And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.”
I say “former” because I was told to stop handing out books and sermons by Dr. Jack Hyles and Dr. Al Lacy on the King James Bible or be asked to leave the church. I could never support such wickedness by staying in a church where the pastor rejects truth. They go along to get along with apostate mainstream new-evangelicalism. They don't preach on Hell. They don't pound the pulpit. Dr. Jack Hyles (1926-2001) went against the crowd. He was the best preacher of the 20th century, which is why he is the most hated and loved still today in 2014. Most pastors are characterized by lukewarmness and mediocrity. God said He wants us hot or cold (Revelation 3:15-16). Well, I by God's grace want to be hot for the Lord Jesus Christ. We are at war over the Bible. Satan is corrupting the Word of God.
Our pulpits have lost their authoritativeness because the new corrupt Bible versions are no longer authoritative. God's Word was written authoritative! A bunch of kooks, quacks and queers have butchered the Bible, making it read like a newspaper or comic-book. Bless God, I'll stick with the good old faithful King James Bible that uplifts the Lord Jesus Christ, proclaims His deity, teaches the Godhead, and still calls homosexuals wicked “sodomites”! Where do you stand? How long halt ye between two opinions?
Proverbs 22:28, “Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.”
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 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.”
The King James Bible Defended!
There have been over 400 English translations of the Bible since the 1611 King James Bible!
God Only Wrote One Book...
Thank God for the KING JAMES BIBLE!!!
