Fight! a new contender challenges the King James Bible

After the KJV’s victory over the Douay Rheims, a new challenger on the scene wants to go toe to toe with the king of Bible translations.

“I’m new, I’m young, I’m fresh, I give the message of the Bible to the modern reader.” Boasts our challenger.

“There aint no way, no way, that that old English translation, is going to beat me, I’m translated from superior manuscripts, I’m modern, I’m easy to understand, I’ll take that King James Bible any day.” Says the challenger.

Will this young contender give our prize fighter a run for his money?

In the blue corner, standing tall from the universities of Oxford, Cambridge, and Westminister, translated by 47 learned scholars, the faithful, the time honored, the quick, the powerful, King “Sharper than any twoedged sword” James Biiiiiiiiiible.

In the red corner, translated by Greek professor, Eugene Peterson, the hip, the fresh, the popular, Mesaaaaaaaaaaaaage.



John 1:18 This one-of-a-kind God-Expression,
        who exists at the very heart of the Father,
        has made him plain as day.


John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

Only begotten Son vs One of  a kind God expression.

Who takes this round?


The King James Bible.



1 Timothy 3:16 . This Christian life is a great mystery, far exceeding our understanding, but some things are clear enough:

He appeared in a human body,
    was proved right by the invisible Spirit,
        was seen by angels.
He was proclaimed among all kinds of peoples,
    believed in all over the world,
        taken up into heavenly glory.


1 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.


The King James Bible takes round two.



Colossians 2:10  You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ.



Colossians 2:10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.


The King James Bible takes round three.


Ephesians 4:6 Message

one God and Father of all, who rules over all, works through all, and is present in all. Everything you are and think and do is permeated with Oneness.


Ephesians 4:6-7 KJV One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.


Permeated with oneness? The message contains new age doctrine.

I don’t think the message is going to get up from this.


The King James Bible takes round four.


And the winner is.

Mary Statue


John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Alright, today I want to do a short sermon on idolatry. Specifically as it relates to the Catholic church. Now, if you’re a Catholic, I want you to please take the time to read this short article. I do not have anything against Catholics, I simply love them enough to tell them the truth. If you’re a new believer in Christ, don’t turn to statues.

First, what is an idol? The Greek word is eidolon, and the Strong’s definition is simply “An image for worship, a false god.”

According to the Bible, an idol is not simply an image, it is something that pollutes.

Acts 15:20 says

But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.

The Scripture also says those who are idolaters will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind. (1 Corinthians 6:9) 

The Bible tells us numerous times to flee from idols.

Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.( 1 Corinthians 10:14)

Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.  (1 John 5:21)

The question is, is that little statue of Mary (that’s not really Mary by the way) and idol? Well let’s see if it fits the Biblical description of an idol.

Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.

 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:

They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:

 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.

They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.

 O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he is their help and their shield. (Psalm 115: 4-8)

Is that statue of Mary the work of a man’s hand?


Does she have a mouth?


Does she speak?


Does she have eyes?


Does she see?


Does she have ears?


Does she hear?


Does she have a nose?


Does she smell?


Does she have hands?


Does she handle?


Does she have feet?


Does she walk


Does she speak?


The statue fits every description of an idol.


Does this seem like something that would please the Lord Jesus Christ?


Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. (Matthew 4:10)

Do you notice the little crown on her head? According to Catholicism Mary is the queen of heaven.

Interestingly enough, the Bible talks about the queen of heaven, but it isn’t Mary.

 But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine. (Jeremiah 44:18)

It seems the Lord wasn’t pleased with Israel offering drink offerings to this queen of heaven idol.

Does He want you to today? No.

1 Thessalonians 1:9  For they themselves shew of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God.

A Bible believer’s response to “interfaith”

Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division. (Luke 12:51)

Today, we face a very large ecumenical outlook in the modern church, we see Catholics, Mormons, Protestants, and Evangelicals holding councils for unity and brotherhood. We have bishops and “popes” telling us to set aside our differences and join together. We have interfaith meetings in the U.N. but now this same attitude is in the modern churches. We have some church goers telling us all religions are true, we even had a pope tell us Christians and Muslims worship the same god. A blasphemous statement against the God of heaven, the God of Scripture.

Should all denominations and sects join together for unity? I think not. Should all religions join together? No.

And we will see from the Scriptures the truth about truth, and how it divides.

Luke 12:51-57 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:

52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.

53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.

54 And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.

55 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.

56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?

57 Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

Christian exclusiveness.

Before anything else is said about interfaith, I would like to make two things clear,

1. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a message for anyone to receive.

 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. (Romans 1:16)


2. The Gospel excludes all other beliefs as error.

1 John 5:12  He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
(John 14:6)


He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (John 3:18)

Any Christian who tells you “all religions are true” has not studied the Scriptures.

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

One mediator excludes Mohammed, Buddah, Krishna, Shiva, Mary, or any other person or ‘god’ from mediating between God and men. The Lord Jesus Christ does that.

Matthew 7:13  Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

Wide is the gate that leadeth to destruction. Does that sound like an inclusive, tolerant, statement? No.

Jesus was clear HE is the Way, the Truth, and the LIFE. Do not be deceived by any church or organization, that tells you there are many ways to God. Narrow is the way that leadeth to life.

The Scriptures are clear on being separate from the world, and separate from errors in religious doctrine.

(2 Corinthians 6:14-17) Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

Should the churches compromise truth to be more pleasant to the world? Nay, it is written!

As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. (Romans 9:33)

Paul said if he preached circumcision the offence of the cross is ceased. (Galatians 5:11).

If the message does not offend the lost world, the church needs to check it.

The picture you see above is not Jesus. It is simply not what He looked/looks like. The Bible only gives us a physical description of Jesus AFTER He is glorified.

However, using clues based solely upon Scripture, we can see for sure that the man pictured above is not what Jesus looked/looks like.


1. He had no form or comeliness.


Isaiah 53:3  For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

Jesus was not physically attractive or had any special features. The man pictured above would stand out in a crowd of Jewish rabbis. This is not what Jesus looked like.


2. Thick beard.

The man pictured above has a very thin beard.

Scripture says:

Isaiah 50:6 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.

Jesus’ beard was long enough to pluck it out from the cheeks.



3. Dark skin.


Jesus was and is Jewish. (Revelation 5:5, Matthew 1) A Jewish man seldom has light brown hair, and white skin and blue eyes.


4. Long hair.


The Bible is clear, men are not to have long hair.

1 Corinthians 11:14 Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?


Do you think the perfect Man would have had long hair, thus going against nature and confusing the sexes? God forbid!


Jesus did not look unique from His followers, or any other Jewish rabbi during his days. When Judas betrayed Jesus, he had to point Jesus out from His disciples.


What Jesus looks like now.


Revelation 1:12-17

And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;

13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.

17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:

Hell in the Old Testament


Alright, so today I wanted to do a quick sermon on hell in the Old Testament. Now, I have heard from a few ‘unbelievers’ that hell is a doctrine found only in the New Testament, or that is was invented by Christianity and can be found nowhere in the Old Testament.

Many people do not even realize that when Jesus spoke of hell He was quoting the Old Testament.

First, lets see what Jesus said about hell.

Mark 9:43-48

And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

45 And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:

46 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

47 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire:

48 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.


We can see from this that Jesus said hell is a place of unquenchable fire, and worms that do not die.

What does the Old Testament say about this?


The first verse that should be noted is Deuteronomy 32:22.

For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.


A fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell. That sounds a lot like what Jesus is speaking of. A place of burning under the earth.


Psalm 11: 6 Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup.

Fire and brimstone is the New Testament description of the lake of fire, not to be confused with hell. But it is here in the Old Testament as well.



Isaiah 1:28-31 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the Lord shall be consumed.

29 For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen.

30 For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water.

31 And the strong shall be as tow, and the maker of it as a spark, and they shall both burn together, and none shall quench them.


Transgressors and sinners shall both burn together and none shall quench them. This is a strong depiction of hell in the Old Testament.




Isaiah 66:24 And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.


This verse is the one Jesus quoted the most, it is a clear cut depiction of the lake of fire, the final punishment for all the wicked.

I cannot close this message without giving you the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.


Do not go to hell, Jesus paid the price for your sins so that you can be delivered from an eternal punishment.

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

1 Timothy 1:15  This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 10:9  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.

The KJV translators

In 1604, 47 of the most brilliant scholars in history began working on the world’s most loved, cherished, and hated book. The King James Bible.


1. Lancelot Andrewes.

A very notable translator, Lancelot Andrewes, bishop of Winchester, probably contributed more to the translating work than any other man.

Lancelot Andrewes was an extremely brilliant man. He was learned in 22 languages. source

Lawrence Chaderton.

Laurence Chaderton came late to an earnest interest in scholarship. What became a life long thirst for learning began under the care of his tutor, Laurence Vaux. At age twenty-five he enrolled in Christ’s College, Cambridge in 1565. He must have been one of the oldest entrants. He graduated B.A. in 1568, proceeded M.A. in 1571, B.D. in 1578, and D.D. in 1613. He subsequently obtained his M.A. in 1571, B.D. in 1578, and D.D. in 1613.



William Bedwell


The man who earned the title “Father of Arabic studies in England”, William Bedwell graduated B.A. in 1585 and proceeded M.A. in 1588. He was fortunate at Cambridge to come under the influence of some of the great mathematical and language scholars of his time.William Bedwell’s university record does not show his election to a fellowship of his college but he stayed at Cambridge for nearly twenty-three years and was most certainly employed as a teacher and scholar. Bedwell was a pioneer in Arabic studies, and became known as the foremost Arabist in England. With this skill, he was called upon to act as a translator of official documents and as an interpreter. When a Moroccan party arrived in England to visit Queen Elizabeth I, it was William Bedwell who met them first.




John Bois


Young John was a child prodigy. He read his Bible through by age five and by six could “write Hebrew with an elegant hand” and had learned Greek. He was given a fine grammar school education and left for the university at Cambridge in 1574 at age fourteen. Early in his university studies his gift for languages was recognized by his teachers and he was asked to provide appropriate Greek epistles for celebratory occasions.


I have only named four of the 47 scholars who worked on the King James Bible. I have named a man fluent in 22 languages, a man who had four degrees, a man who earned the title “Father of Arabic studies in England” and a man who read through the Bible at age five, and was writing Hebrew at age six.


The time when the King James Bible was translated was a time of educational excellence. This is clearly seen in the work of these men.

Modern Bible Versions EXPOSED! (Documentary)


Hello reader. Today, I would like to take you on a journey that exposes the real Bible version issue.

Please, consider everything you are about to read very carefully, while keeping Proverbs 18:13 in mind. Let us begin.

Since time began, the word of God, has been under attack. The first recorded words of Satan were “Yea hath God said?”. He cast doubt on the word of God, and then replaced it with his own. Today, you are about to see this very same thing is still happening, and not just by a serpent this time, by “Christian” scholars and educated men in our Christian colleges, our Bible Schools, our bookstores, and our churches.

Join me, and we will uncover a conspiracy, to replace….the Bible.

Alright folks, I’m glad to be here tonight. I want to take an approach to this issue and really dig into this KJV only controversy. The word of the Lord says, “Thy word is very pure, therefore thy servant loveth it.” (Psalm 119:140) That is what we’re going to be discussing tonight. The pureness of the text. Now, this method I use, is not going to rely on manuscripts, on textual criticism, on the history of Bible versions, all those things are very important, but I want something that can relate to the average reader.

I quoted before Psalm 119:140, thy word is very pure, therefore thy servant loveth it. There is also Proverbs 30:5, Every word of God is pure.

I need you first to understand the power of that statement. EVERY WORD of God is PURE. Incredible. That is going to be the central theme of tonight’s documentary.

First, let me tell you a little bit about how I came upon this method, the Lord really made great provision with all the Bible searching software out there, and I have Him and Him only to credit.

I did keyword searches of various words and documented their uses in many new translations. I am going to show you my findings.

Before I begin, just one word. The Bible is a family book right? Who remembers their grandparents sitting down with a big ol King James Bible and reading to them as kids? The Bible is a family book, and that is also a central issue tonight in this documentary.

Alright, let me start off by saying, I pray you will view these findings with open eyes, and a love for the word of God.

As I said early, I searched various Bibles for the frequency of certain words, here is what I found.
