Which Bible?


We use the King James Version of the Bible.  The reason is that these NIV and the KJV are translated from two totally different manuscripts.  The NIV is translated from the Westcott and. Hort text.  The KJV is translated from the Textus Receptus.  The two versions have quite a bit of DOCTRINAL difference and a person will come to two different sets of doctrinal ideas depending on which version that they use.  The KJV is the “received text” and is the correct text where the NIV is a corrupted text and is not truly God’s Word.  This following is just a small sample.


Changes In 2 Corinthians

2 Corinthians 2:17



2 Corinthians 2:17 (NIV) Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, like men sent from God.



2 Corinthians 2:17 (KJV) 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.


According to Webster's 1828 Dictionary:


The word “peddle” means to “To sell or retail, usually by traveling about the country”.  The NIV makes it sound like selling God’s word is a sin, which it is not.  Notice also that the phrase “for profit” was added.


The word “corrupt” means ...

CORRUPT, v.t. L., to break. Literally, to break, separate or dissolve. Hence,

1. To change from a sound to a putrid or putrescent state; to separate the component parts of a body, as by a natural process, which accompanied by a fetid smell.

2. To vitiate or deprave; to change from good to bad.

Evil communications corrupt good manners. 1 Corinthians 15.

3. To waste, spoil or consume.

Lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt. Matthew 6.

4. To defile or pollute. Exodus 32.

5. To entice from good and allure to evil. 2 Corinthians 11.

6. To pervert; to break, disobey or make void. Malachi 2.

7. To pervert or vitiate integrity; to bribe; as, to corrupt a judge.

8. To debase or render impure, by alterations or innovations; as, to corrupt language.

9. To pervert; to falsify; to infect with errors; as, to corrupt the sacred text.


1. To become putrid; to putrefy; to rot. Animal and vegetable substances speedily corrupt in a warm and moist air.

2. To become vitiated; to lose purity.


1. Changed from a sound to a putrid state, as by natural decomposition.

2. Spoiled; tainted; vitiated; unsound; as corrupt air, or bread.

3. Depraved; vitiated; tainted with wickedness.

They are corrupt; they have done abominable works. Psalm 14.

The earth was corrupt before God. Genesis 6.

4. Debased; rendered impure; changed to a worse state; as corrupt language.

5. Not genuine; infected with errors or mistakes. The text is corrupt.



The NIV is a CORRUPT, perversion of the Bible, it is not the pure word of God.




Changes In Daniel

Daniel 3:25



Daniel 3:25 (NIV) He said, "Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods."



Daniel 3:25 (KJV) He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.

A “son of the gods” is paganism whereas the “Son of God” identifies Jesus Christ in the Old Testament.



Changes in Matthew

Mat 5:44



Mat 5:44 But I tell you: Love your enemies , ----- ---- ---- ----- ---, -- ---- -- ---- ---- ---- ---,  and pray for those who  ------------ --- --- --- persecute you,

Mat 5:44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;


The love of a true Christian has been deleted.  Not only here but other places as well.  Check out Luke 9:55.



Mat 6:13



Mat 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.  --- ----- -- --- -------, --- --- -----, --- --- -----, --- ----. ----.

Mat 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.


The “evil one” and “evil” are two different things.  Also, the royalty, power, and glory of God has been deleted.



Mat 17:21




Mat 17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.


A deletion that removes the method by which you must cast out some devils.



Mat 18:11




Mat 18:11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.


This is a very important deletion because it removes a clearly stated reason of Jesus’ purpose.  This phrase has also been removed in Luke 9:56



Mat 27:2



Mat 27:2 They bound him, led him away and handed him over to ------- Pilate, the governor.

Mat 27:2 And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.


The KJV is by far more accurate in its’ translation, even in small details.



Mat 27:35



Mat 27:35 When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots. ---- -- ----- -- ---------- ----- --- ------ -- --- -------, ---- ------ -- -------- ----- ----, --- ---- -- ------- --- ---- ---- ---.

Mat 27:35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.


This removes the remembrance of a prophecy from Psalms 22:18 (KJV) They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.


Changes in Mark

Mark 3:15



Mark 3:15 and to have authority to ---- ---------, --- -- drive out demons.

Mark 3:15 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:


“Power” and “Authority” have two very different meanings.  It is possible to have the authority to give an order but not have the power to enforce it.  To have “power” means that you are “able to do” something.  The translator of the NIV do not believe that God is omnipotent so of course they are going to also leave out the “heal sicknesses” part of the verse too.



Mark 7:16




Mark 7:16 If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.


The context of this passage deals with how the Pharisees have corrupted the Word of God with their tradition.


Changes in Luke

Luke 7:28



Luke 7:28 I tell you, among those born of women there is no one greater ------- than John --- -------; yet the one who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.”

Luke 7:28 For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.


Once again the KJV is far more accurate than the NIV. 



Luke 9:55



Luke 9:55 But Jesus turned and rebuked them, --- ----, -- ---- --- ---- ------ -- ------ -- --- --.

Luke 9:55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.


True Christianity removed from the Bible once again in the NIV!  The context of this passage is when Jesus and his disciple weren’t accepted in Samaria and James and John wanted Jesus to command fire to come out of heaven and destroy them.  That is not the spirit of God.  God has never commanded or even given the slightest hint for his people to have a “holy” war.  God want us to love our enemies (Mat 5:44).  Think about the spirit of the Catholics during the crusades.  They were not and are not of God.



Luke 9:56



Luke 9:56 --- --- --- -- --- -- --- ---- -- ------- ---- -----, --- -- ---- ----.  and they went into another village.

Luke 9:56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.


This is the second place that this phrase has been deleted.  The first place is Mat 18:11.  Why do the NIV unbelievers not want us to know this bit of information?  In case you haven’t noticed, this verse and the one right above it (Luke 9:55) have a lot of critical words of Jesus Christ deleted.  Read verses 55 & 56 in the NIV and then read them in the KJV and notice the loss of meaning that is in the NIV.



Luke 22:14



Luke 22:14 When the hour came, Jesus and his ------ apostles reclined at the table.

Luke 22:14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.


How many apostles were there?  You will get a direct statement from the KJV; it is just a lot more accurate than the NIV.



Luke 23:38



Luke 23:38 There was a written notice above him, -- ------- -- -----, --- -----, --- ------, which read: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

Luke 23:38 And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.


Anyone who studies from the NIV will know a lot less than those that study from the KJV.  The reduction in knowledge that you get from reading the NIV is astounding.



Luke 24:42



Luke 24:42 They gave him a piece of broiled fish, --- -- -- ---------.

Luke 24:42 And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb.


Once again, the KJV is more precise.


Changes in John

John 3:13



John 3:13 No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man ----- -- -- ------.

John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.


The phrase “which is in heaven is very important because it shows the omnipotence and omnipresence of God.  God can be in heaven and on earth at the same time.




John 3:16



John 3:16 (NIV) For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16 (KJV) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Luke 3:38 (NIV) the son of Enosh, the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God.

Luke 3:38 (KJV) Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.

There is a big difference between the “one and only” and the “only begotten”.  First of all, God  does not have “one and only” son.. 

All men are the sons of God in a physical sense.

Luke 3:37 (KJV) Which was the son of Mathusala, which was the son of Enoch, which was the son of Jared, which was the son of Maleleel, which was the son of Cainan,

Luke 3:38 (KJV) Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God.

When a person is “born again”, accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour, then they become “son of God”.

1 John 3:1 (KJV) Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

So, what the NIV is really stating is that no one can really be saved!

Begotten means procreated.  I have a physical father, as all men do (except for Adam and Eve).  Jesus’ physical father was God and God only had one physical child.

So, I am a son of God (spiritually) but not a begotten (physical) son of God, my physical father is not God.




John 5:4




John 5:4 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.


If you don’t have verse 4 in the Bible then you totally miss the reason the blind man was at the pool.  The beginning of the chapter has lost its meaning.



John 7:50



John 7:50 Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus earlier and who was one of their own number, asked,

John 7:50 Nicodemus saith unto them, (he that came to Jesus by night, being one of them,)


“Earlier” or “by night”? Which one is more precise?


Changes in Acts

Acts 8:37




Acts 8:37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.


Here the qualification for baptism is totally deleted from the Bible.
