KING JAMES BIBLE...Inspired Word of God? Post #2

As promised, here is the 2nd part of the KING JAMES BIBLE posting. Here you will find solid evidence of tampering with three of the 49 outstanding versions of scripture. By way of background you need to know the 1st version of the KJV was translated in 1611. It was translated from the original Hebrew text in the OT and Koine Greek text of the Septuagint. There were 40 translators involved from all walks of life and different religions. James VI wanted a version of God's Word that mirrored the original in every way possible. This was a major undertaking and King James was smart enough to know that he needed genuine scholars of the ancient texts to be certain that the end result was a legitimate re-creation of the original text and it's meaning. Only one problem, the new text is in what we call middle English, which is a sort of blend between Gaelic and the King's English at the time. Fundamentally, it's like reading Chaucer or Shakespeare with a heavy Scottish brogue. It was perfect for life in 1611, but as the morphology of the English language continued over time, it was soon out-dated and impractical. Then in the late 1769 it got revised into the KJV version that you see online and major bookstores worldwide.


Now we are going to compare three (3) very popular versions of the Bible, so that we can learn once and for all the types of changes made in them. Upon completion I believe you will have a new outlook on God's Holy Word. At the very least, if you study these tables, your knowledge base on this all-important subject will have been challenged and expanded. Do I believe that God can use any version, revision or translation to communicate with believers? Absolutely, I do!! God can and will trump any hidden agenda, translation error or just plain human error. I believe that these differences in many cases were planned in advance to further the cause of a particular religious sect or even the evil one, himself.


So here are the three that we will concentrate on in the remainder of this post:

  1. New International Bible
  2. New American Standard Bible
  3. New World Translation
The first chart concentrates on the preeminence of Jesus Christ. You will see verse after verse that has been altered to make the reader feel that Jesus was not really a Deity in His own right or making him as close to being "just" human.

Ok, so you read one or two, and you say, "no biggie," but 35 of them makes me wretch, because someone is out break down our confidence in our Redeemer with all of these subtle and not so subtle changes in what you read!

Moving on to 24 errors and OMISSIONS! If these omissions don't rock your world, then nothing can. How can they have the audacity to eliminate critical verses of scripture and keep a straight face. The truth is that it gets done over and over. Just a little bit at a time over the last 400 years gets diluted or altered in a way that changes our fundamental belief system. Believer beware!

Last, but certainly, not least is the plain old elimination of text by just red-lining it out. They insolently just cut out passages that don't fit their need. God says that any alteration will be met by death in judgement, but try to imagine the current mind set of someone sitting down and destroying God's Word for all time. So much for honesty and integrity in the process of version creation.

16:9-20
              
Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils. And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept. And they, when they had heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not. After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country. And they went and told it unto the residue: neither believed they them. Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God. And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.(typically marginalized or set in brackets. Footnotes in NIV are patently false.)
Luke
1:28And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
4:4And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
4:8And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
4:41And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou artChrist the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ.
7:31And the Lord said, Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like?
9:54-56And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.
11:2-4And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.
11:29And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.
17:36Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
21:4For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.
22:31And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
22:64And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?
23:17(For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)
23:38And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
23:42And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
24:6He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee,
24:40And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.
24:49And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
24:51And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
John
1:14And 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.
1:27He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.
3:13And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
3:15That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
4:42And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.
5:3-4In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.
6:47Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.
6:69And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
11:41Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.
16:16A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.
17:12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

Look at the destruction of the four Gospels! These alterations are beyond words, and you need to stand up and be certain that your family is not sucked in by this heresy. God said to avoid them that seek to change his words, so do so...

At the end of the day, I believe that the KJV done in 1611 and 1769 are the absolute closest, literal translation of the original documents. Are they perfect? Absolutely not...so you must be vigilant in your study of scripture to be certain that your understanding of the written text is accurate first. Then let God take over to increase your knowledge and wisdom. The more you use the KJV version the closer you will be to the true meaning of the Holy Spirit when he inspired the author. I believe he is there today to guide the open heart and open mind to a richer, deeper understanding of God's Word. It all starts with the best version and translation available to you.

May God bless you all as you elevate the importance of his written word!

Hearing from you is certainly not a requirement. Consideration of what is researched and written is all I ask of anyone who stumbles upon my writings. I believe that my God will take it from there. With His help I try to separate fact from fiction, sense from nonsense, and ultimately clarity from chaos.
