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.

 

Message

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.

KJV

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.

 

Message

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.

KJV

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.

 

Message

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

 

KJV

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.

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.

THAT’S NOT JESUS!

merciful-jesus

 

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:

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.

The word kill:The word kill appears in the New International Version 180 times. source

The word kill appears in the Holman Christian Standard Bible  190 times. source

The Message has the word kill 156 more times than the KJV, while it has 114 less occurrences of the name Jesus Christ than the KJV.

What about the word sex?

The King James Bible has the word sex zero times.

The NIV has the word sex 2 times. source

The HCSB has the word sex 11 times. source

The NLT has the word sex 4 times source

the Message has the word sex 153 times source

What about the word rejoice?

The word rejoice occurs 183 times in the King James Bible. source

NIV: 124 source

HCSB: 166 source

NLT: 110 source

Message: 14 source

Results: The NIV has two more occurrences of the word sex than the King’s Bible. While it has 73 less occurrences of the word rejoice.

The HCSB has the word sex 11 more times than the KJV, while it has 17 less occurrences of the word rejoice.

The NLT has the word sex  4 more times than the KJV, while it has 73 less occurrences of the word rejoice.

Pretty shocking isn’t it? What’s going on here folks?

Modern Versions preach a false Christ.

Before any manuscripts, translators, or anything similar to that is discussed, I will simply show the deficiencies of modern versions, when held up against the King James Bible.

1. A “different” Christ in the modern versions.

2 Corinthians 5:21 states Jesus Christ knew no sin.

Isaiah 53:9 says there was no deceit in His mouth. This is the true Jesus. The spotless Lamb of God.

However, when one reads the pages of the NIV, NASB, ESV, NLT, NCV, TEV, or whatever, one can easily spot a “different” Christ.

A “christ” who did “knew” sin.

But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother WITHOUT A CAUSE shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.” (Matthew 5:22 KJV)

The King James Bible correctly states that Jesus said, whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause is in danger of judgment.

The word translated as “without a cause” – εικη –  has massive, early and almost universal support among the ancient witnesses and throughout history.  It is the reading of the vast Majority of all remaining Greek manuscripts, the Old Latin copies of a, aur, b, c, d, f, ff1, g1, h, k, l, q, the ancient Lectionaries, the Syraic Peshitta, Harkelian, Palestinian, Curetonian, Coptic Sahidic and Boharic, Gothic, Armenian, Georgian and Slavonic early versions.  It is the reading found in the early Diatessaron, and it so quoted by such early church witnesses in their writings as Irenaeus, Origen, Cyprian, Eusebius, Chrysostom, Cyril, Theodoret and Hilary.

“But I say unto you that every one who is angry with his brother WITHOUT A CAUSE is worthy of the judgement.” Taitian (140 AD), Diatessaron

What say the modern versions?

But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister, ‘Raca,’ is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, ‘You fool!’ will be in danger of the fire of hell. (Matthew 5:22 NIV)

But I say, if you are even angry with someone, you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot, you are in danger of being brought before the court. And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell. (Matthew 5:22 NLT)

But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire. (ESV)

“But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother, ‘You good-for-nothing,’ shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever says, ‘You fool,’ shall be guilty enough to go into the fiery hell. (NASB)

What’s the problem?

Jesus got angry.

And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other. (Mark 3:5)

The Greek word for “brother” adelphos, translates:

a brother, whether born of the same two parents or only of the same father or mother having the same national ancestor, belonging to the same people, or countryman any fellow or man a fellow believer, united to another by the bond of affection an associate in employment or office brethren in Christ his brothers by blood all men apostles Christians, as those who are exalted to the same heavenly place.

So, according to the modern versions, Jesus got angry with His brothers, and is therefore in danger of the judgement? That is not sound doctrine, nor is it true.

The correct rendering is the King James Bible. Jesus HAD a cause for His anger. He is sinless, and no Bible corruption can change that.
