PERVERTED, CORRUPT, AND COUNTERFEIT BIBLES

Jim Kennedy
November 2007

It is important to know and realize that any Bible other than the authorized King James is a perverted, corrupt or counterfeit Bible. We know that the King James is the only true word of GOD, because this is the only Bible that each perverted Bible tries to place doubt by changing the wording, omitting words or phases or adding words that changes the meaning or context of the scriptures. No one has any reasonable intent to pervert something that is already perverted or counterfeit, that would be a great waste of energy and time. That is the reason, that only the King James is under attack from ever side which is spurred on by Satan himself.

Prior to the King James Bible there was no formalize written text of scripture accept for the Old Testament which was contained in the Torah written in Hebrew and was in the procession of the Jewish nation which is Israel.

So how did the rest of the bible come into existing which we would consider to be the New Testament. The New Testament manuscripts were mostly written by the Apostles which included the writings of Paul and maybe by new Christians. These manuscripts were past down to recipients who happen to be the new age Christians within churches being established throughout most of the known world at that time or private individuals located at many different locations.

Even at this early stage of development, corrupted copies begin to be written with some of the more noted corrupt copies being written by Origen.

He espoused a Platonic view of eternal souls achieving perfection while escaping the temporary, imperfect material world. He imagined even demons being reunited with God. His views of a hierarchical structure in the Trinity, the temporality of matter, "the fabulous preexistence of souls," and "the monstrous restoration which follows from it" were declared anathema in the 6th century.

Anathema – excommunication with a curse and was pretty exclusive with the Roman Catholic Church.

We will discuss additional corrupters of the bible later on of which there are some key ones.

In 302 A.D. Diocletian made an attempt to burn all copies of biblical manuscripts including both the good manuscripts and also the corrupt manuscripts. During this time, real Christians were willing to die for the manuscripts that they possessed.

The next main contributor to the writing of the New Testament was a man named Erasmus who lived around 1516A.D. Erasmus was one of he greatest scholar in the world. He researched over 200 manuscripts, chose one accurate manuscript for translation. Used five others manuscripts to help with any problems. He rejected the Vaticanus! He wrote the Greek New Testament.

Publication of the Greek New Testament

The first New Testament printed in Greek was part of the Polyglot Bible. This portion was printed in 1514, but publication was delayed until 1522 by waiting for the Old Testament portion, and the sanction of Pope Leo X.[5] While in England in 1515, Erasmus became aware of the Polyglot project and began a search for available manuscripts of the Greek New Testament with the goal of meeting the demand for a printed edition before the Polyglot Bible could be finished. This critical edition included a Latin translation and annotations, and would be called the Textus Receptus which was used as the main text for the New Testament of the King James Bible. Erasmus used several Greek manuscript sources because he did not have access to a single complete manuscript.

In the 2nd (1519) edition the more familiar term Testamentum (from which we get the word testament) was used instead of Instrumentum. This edition was used by Martin Luther in making his German translation. Together, the first and second editions sold 3,300 copies. The 1st- and 2nd-edition texts did not include the passage (1 John 5:7–8) that has become known as the Comma Johanneum. Erasmus was unable to find those verses in any Greek manuscript, but one was supplied to him during production of the 3rd edition. That manuscript is now thought to be a 1520 creation from the Latin Vulgate, which likely got the verses from a fifth-century marginal gloss in a Latin copy of I John. The Roman Catholic Church decreed that the Comma Johanneum was open to dispute (June 2, 1927), and it is rarely included in modern scholarly translations.

The 3rd edition of 1522 was probably used by Tyndale for the first English New Testament and was the basis for the 1550 Robert Stephanus edition used by the translators of the Geneva Bible and King James Version of the English Bible. Erasmus published a definitive 4th edition in 1527 containing parallel columns of Greek, Latin Vulgate and Erasmus's Latin texts. He used the now available Polyglot Bible to improve this version. In 1535 Erasmus published the 5th (and final) edition which dropped the Latin Vulgate column but was otherwise similar to the 4th edition. Subsequent versions of Erasmus's Greek New Testament became known as the Textus Receptus.

Erasmus regarded this work as his chief service to the cause of Christianity.

So it can be shown what a tremendous contribution and affect the writing and translation of Erasmus had on the shaping of the Christian Bible, the King James that we embrace today. Along with his major contribution to the text of the King James, Erasmus also helped to shape and mold Christianity, along with some of the other great reformers, such as Martin Luther and John Calvin to mention a few.

Let take a quite look at the manner in which the King James Bible was translated from the major languages of which it was originally composed. The majority of manuscript text is referred to as the Textus Receptus with over 5000 supporting manuscripts which is 99% of all manuscripts know to exist that pertain to the King James Bible.

Manuscripts were examined from Europe, Asia and Africa with tremendous accuracy and there was agreement among all those examined.

Because there are so many different perverted, corrupt and counterfeit Bibles being used to day, sufficient time is not available to go through each one at this time, but just about all the perverted, corrupt and counterfeited Bibles attack the King James in a similar manner.

Prior to starting our journey into the truth, let's look at one testimony of a man who was a chief contributor to the “New American Standard” Bible.

I must under God renounce every attachment to the New American Standard (NASAV). I’m afraid I’m in trouble with the Lord…..We laid the groundwork; I wrote the format; I helped interview some of the translators; I sat with the translator; I wrote the preface…I’m in trouble; I can’t refuse these arguments; its wrong, it terribly wrong; it’s frighteningly wrong; and what am I going to do about it?…I can no longer ignore these criticisms I am hearing and I can’t refuse them…When questions began to reach me at first I was quite offended. However, in attempting to answer, I began to sense that something was not right about the NASV. Upon investigation, I wrote my very dear friend, Mr. Lockman, explaining that I was forced to renounce all attachment to the NASV… The product is grievous to my heart and helps to complicate matters in these already troublous times… the deletions are absolutely frightening… there are so many… Are we so naïve that we do not suspect Satanic deception in all this? I don’t want anything to do with it. The finest leaders that we have today…haven’t gone into it [the new version’s use of a corrupt Greek text], just as I hadn’t gone into it…That’s how easily one can be deceived. I’m going to talk to him [Dr. George Sweeting, then president of Moody Bible Institute] about these things… You can say the Authorized Version [KJV] is absolutely correct. How correct? 100% correct. If you must stand against everyone else, stand.---Dr. Frank Logsdon

There are a number of publications that contain this statement by Dr. Frank Logsdon who was Co-founder, New American Standard Version.

This brings us to the question: Who were the men that had final authority over the translation of ancient manuscripts into the Authorized Version of the King James Bible?

The translation of the King James Bible was placed in the capable hands of 54 chosen men from all parts of the know world. During the translation period, 7 died leaving the other 47 to conclude the translation process. Only 3 of the 47 men knew less than 5 Bible related languages. Each man had a incredible Godly testimonies. One translator had read the Bible through over 200 times. One translator was fluent in 15 Bible related languages. They were given 15 rules to follow during the translation process and they complied with each an every one of them.

No one man was burden with the task of trying to translate all the manuscripts as a single item, but they were broken into 3 groups with each group entrusted for only so much of the manuscripts to be translated.

The groups are given with the names of the persons that made up each group. The reason I am giving you this information is so if you desire to look up the qualifications of these men, you can do just that by going on line.

George Ryves, and overseer of the translation at Oxford. William Eyer, James Montague, Arthur Lake, Nicholas Love, Ralph Ravens,and Thomas Sparke appear on other lists or arementioned by some authorities as taking part in the work.

The translation of the King James Bible was done openly and not in private. And most importantly was commission to be done by a King. Each verse was reviewed by no less than 5 committees and each verse reviewed a minimum of 14 times.

SATANIC CORRUPTION

In dealing with man the very first thing that the Devil did was to try to place doubt in the mind of man concerning the word of God. The Devil’s first words to man were, “Yea, hath God said” (Gen. 3:1)

Many people do not realize the subtility and effectiveness of this. If you can get man to doubt the word of God, then eventually you can get him to doubt God, the reality of heaven and hell, the reality of judgment, the warnings and consequences that God gives in connection with sin, and everything else that God has revealed.

This can be easily seen today by the attitude of the world toward what God has actually said. For example, when the Bible says. “In the beginning God created...”, man says. That just can’t be, we came from monkeys, but they never question or think about where did monkeys come from and if you ask them, they would give some unreasonable explanation which they don’t believe and neither should you. And again, when God says, “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”. Man assume that statement is just some religious hallucination designed to scare people, for surely, “Death ends it all”. And so it goes.

And yet, the Devil is not only effectively causing the world to doubt the word of God, but is also effectively sowing seeds of doubt and confusion even among “recognized” Christianity. This has been done by the floods of “new bibles” that have shown up over the last approximately 120 years.

God said, “The words of the LORD are pure words. Thou shalt keep them. O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever” (Psalm 12:6-7). And again, “My covenant will I not break, nor alter the things that is gone out of my lips” (Psalm 89:34). Surely the God that created the heavens and earth has the power to preserve his own words.

In 1611 AD, God allowed His word to be translated and published in English. This is known as the “Authorized Version” or the “King James Version”, and for nearly four hundred years it has been the final and absolute authority in all matter of faith and practice among the English speaking Christians of the world. It has also stood without proven error against the attack of atheists, infidels, and others who would try to destroy it. This can not be said about any other perverted, corrupt or counterfeit bible, in many cases they contradict themselves.

With the inability to annihilate the King James Bible, the Devil has produced another plan by which He can CORRUPT the word of God by adding to it and taking from it. This has been done by producing “new bibles” that are sold under the guise of “easier to read”, “more reliable translations”, more accurate”, “more up to date”, etc, etc.

As previously stated, because there are so many perverted, corrupt and counterfeit bibles out there, I will address the seven most commonly used bibles that are sold under the different guide mentioned above.

These include the following seven texts which I will not even call bible since they are not the true word of God.

New International Version (NIV)
New American Standard (NASV)
New King James Version (NKJV)
New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
Revised Standard Version (RSV)
Living Bible
Amplified Bible

God has placed a lot of importance upon His words. Matthew 24:35 “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my WORDS shall not pass away.” Psalms 138:2 says,…"for thou hast magnified thy WORD above all thy name." Psalms 119:89 says, “For ever, O LORD, thy WORD is settled in heaven.” This verse demonstrates the stupidity of man thinking he can change what has already been settled in heaven. Man either thinks that he is smarter than God or God is a liar which is what you are saying by using any other bible than the King James.

The spiritual life blood of the human race is the word of God. It brings salvation; “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the WORD of GOD. (1 Peter 1:23). It produces faith;"...faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the WORD of God.” (Romans 10:17). It provides spiritual growth:"...desire the sincere milk of the WORD that ye may grow thereby:”(1 Peter 2:2). Jesus Christ said in John 6:63…"the WORDS that I speak unto you, they are SPIRIT, and they are LIFE.”

And the first time Satan attacked he human race, it was a direct attack on the word of God! Genesis 3:1 says, “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, YEA, HATH GOD SAID…? Satan planted a small seed of doubt into the mind of Eve. And as Eve questioned the truthfulness of God’s word – the fall of mankind was only a bite away. Satan’s aim of attack hasn’t changed! Satan knows – if he can supplant even a small seed of doubt in God’s word - MANKIND WILL LOOK ELSEWHERE.

Never in history has such doubt and confusion over the Bible existed as is today. And nothing has flamed the fire of confusion and doubt over the Bible more than the scores of different translations flooding the scene. TIME magazine reported in 1981, “there is an UNPRECEDENTED CONFUSION of choices in Bibles. Never have so many major new translations been on the market.” Since 1880, over 200 different translations have appeared. Every six months a new English version appears!

NO WONDER PEOPLE ARE CONFUSED! The question has to be asked – is God the author of this flood of new versions? IS God the author of CONFUSION in HIS word? 1 Corinthians 14:33 clearly states, “God is NOT the author of CONFUSION,BUT SATAN IS! He knows if he can plant the smallest seed of doubt and confusion – that individual will not take God’s word serious!

God promised in Psalms 12:7 He would preserve His word. “Thou shalt KEEP them O LORD, thou shalt PERSERVE them from this generation FOR EVER”. And God keeps his promises! I believe, without a doubt, the King James Bible is the preserve word of God. And the new versions are satanic counterfeits to cast doubt, cause confusion and ATTACK THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!

Most people believe the different versions are basically the same. They believe the newer versions are just “harmless” updating of the word and made easier to understand. NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH!!

THEY ATTACK JESUS CHRIST!

One of he clearest verses in the Bible proclaiming the deity of Jesus Christ that Jesus was God in the flesh is 1 Timothy 3:16. The King James reads, “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH." The King James says, clearly, “GOD was manifest in the flesh”. Most of the other text says “HE appeared in a body which changes "GOD" to “HEHe appeared in a body”? Big deal! Everyone has appeared in a body. The KJV is clear and definite, "GOD was manifest in the flesh."

In Philippians 2:6, The KJV again, clearly declares the deity of Jesus Christ: “Who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery TO BE EQUAL WITH GOD” The other versions completely re-word the verse to deny the deity of Jesus Christ. The other text reads “Who being in very nature God, DID NOT CONSIDER EQUALITY WITH GOD something to be grasped." Someone is attacking the most important doctrine in the Bible - the deity of Jesus Christ! WHO WOULD DO SUCH A THING?

THEY ATTACK THE VIRGIN BIRTH

In Luke 2:33, The King James reads, “And JOSEPH and his mother marveled at those things which were spoken of him.” Some of the other text reads: The CHILD’S FATHER and mother marveled at what was said about him. The “CHILD’S FATHER”? Do you believe that Joseph was Jesus father? Not if you believe the virgin birth! Not if you believe John 3:16 that Jesus Christ was the Son of God! A subtle attack at the virgin birth. WHY? WHO WOULD DO SUCH A THING?

THEY TAKE OUT THE BLOOD

Think these are just isolated cases? NOT BY A LONG SHOT! There are over 6, 000 changes! Consider Colossians 1:14: the KJV reads, "In whom we have redemption THROUGH HIS BLOOD, even the forgiveness of sin." Most of the other text reads, "In whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sin." The other texts rip the precious words “THROUGH HIS BLOOD” completely out. Friend, salvation is only “THROUGH HIS BLOOD” The old song says “What can wash away my sins, NOTHING BUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS!

And something had to be done with John 3:16! So the other texts read, “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" - removing the critical word “BEGOTTEN”! If Jesus was “the one and only” then what happens to the wonderful promise to believers like 1John 3:2 “Beloved, now are we the sons of God...? AN OBVIOUS CONTRADICTION APPEARS!!

THEY CONTAIN LIES

A blatant LIE is found in most of the other texts. In Mark 1: 2 – 3: “It is written in Isaiah the prophet: I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way – a voice of one calling in the desert, Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for himIt is NOT written in Isaiah! “I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way” – is found in Malachi 3:1. In Mark 1:2-3, the KJV correctly reads; “As it is written in the PROPHETS …”A better translation! Easier to understand! BY A LIE.

Psalms 119:160 says, “Thy word is TRUE…”John 17:17 says, “thy word is TRUTH” Titus 1:2 clearly says "…God that CANNOT LIE." How could the God of Titus 1:2 be the God of Mark 1:2 – 3 in these new versions. Either the translators of these other text can’t read or have never read Isaiah nor Malachi (which is likely!) or somebody is deliberately tampering with God’s word to DISCREDICT IT! Who would do such a thing? I’ll give you a hint – he’s called “A LIAR, and the father of it in John 8:44(KJV) Ye are of your father the devil, and the lust of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own, for he is a liar and the father of it.

Oh, by the way, did you think David killed Goliath? Not according to some of the other text. In 2 Samuel 21:19 they erroneously read “Elhanan son of Jaare-Oregim the Bethlehemite killed Goliath the Gittite, who had a spear with a shaft like a weaver’s rod.

LUCIFER OR JESUS CHRIST

In Isaiah 14:12, the father of the new versions remove his mask. The King James reads, "How art thou fallen from heaven, O LUCIFER, son of the morning!.." Other versions reads, "How you have fallen from heaven, O MORNING STAR, son of the dawn…" The new per-version change “Lucifer” to morning star. According to Revelation 22:16, the “morning star” is the LORD JESUS CHRIST! What blasphemy! What perversion! And there’s no basis whatever for the change! The Hebrew word for star (kokab) is not even found in Isaiah 14:12! Is there any doubt who is the “Daddy” of these new versions.

THEY TAKE OUT HELL

If Satan is the author of these new version, one subject he will attack, is the place the Bible calls hell. And the new versions go “into loony land” removing it. Many times they change “hell” to “grave” or “death”. Like Psalm 9:17 the King James reads, "The wicked shall be turned into HELL." The NIV. Reads, “The wicked return to the GRAVE”…What a meaningless statement! We all “return to the grave”.

Many times when the new versions come to the obvious word “hell” - they replace it with the Greek word “Hades” or Hebrew “Sheol”! (See Matt 16:18, Luke 16:23, Acts 2:31 and many more. The NEW King James does this 23 times). Rather than translate into the obvious word hell – THEY REFUSE TO TRANSLATE IT! Who in their right mind thinks Hades or Sheol is “easier to understand” than “hell”. Because someone is trying to remove and cast doubt on hell!

In Isaiah 14:15, the King James Bible condemns Lucifer to hell, "Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell." The other versions either state "But you are brought down to the GRAVE or Satan is placed in “Sheol” humm…I wonder which one the Devil prefers?

THE DEVIL’S OR LORD PRAYER?

An alarming display of Satanic perversion is found in Luke 11:2 - 4 as “The Lord’s Prayer” is subtly (see 2 Cor.11:3) transformed into “The Devil’s Prayer” The King James Bible in Luke reads,…"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 everyone that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil".

Incredibly, the other perverted versions of the bible take out “WHICH ARE IN HEAVEN…Thy will be done, AS IN HEAVEN, so in earth... But “DELIVER US FROM EVIL” Heaven is completely removed! The “father” of the new versions is NOT IN HEAVEN and DOES NOT DELIVER FROM EVIL! I wonder who it could be? (hint.. see John 8:44.)

Are you getting the picture? Do you see how subtitle (see Genesis 3:1) seemingly harmless, the changes are – AND YET HOW DEADLY THEY ARE TO THE INTEGRITY OF GOD’S WORD! Yes friend! Satan has launched an attack on your Bible! YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT!

Did you know the King James Bible is the only English Bible in the world that has a command to “study” your Bible? That’s right 2 Timothy 2:15 “STUDY to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” – has been changed in every English Bible on the face of this earth! BUT ONE!

Example: The New American Standard Bible (NASB) "Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth." Seems harmless, but what does diligent mean? What does handle mean? Switch Bible from hand to hand, here, as far as I am concerned, I am handling the word accurately by not dropping it.

Webster 1828 dictionary give he following definition of diligent: Steady application in business of any kind, constant effort to accomplish what is undertaken, assiduous, attentive, industrious, not idle of negligent.

Assiduous – constant in application
Attentive – Regarding with care
Industrious – Diligent in business or study, constantly or habitually occupied in business, oppose to slothful (lazy) and idle.

Webster 1828 dictionary give the following definition for study: Literally a set of the mind or though upon a subject for the purpose of learning what is not before known.

See the differences in study and diligent. Study is to learn something new which is what the bible instructs us to do while diligent means it is okay to just put forth a constant effort.

When we come here we study the Bible which is revealed in Isaiah 28:10,13

For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little and there a little.

Verse 13 – But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken. There another whole sermon on the last phase of this scripture, but not tonight.

This example is only one of many of how the changing of a word or several words perverts, and corrupts the word of GOD.

THEY TAKE OUT WHOLE VERSES!

In Acts 8:37 the King James reads, "And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest, And he answer and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God." Some of the other perverted text reads – ZIP! NOTHING! THEY TOOK THE WHOLE VERSE OUT! One of the best verses in the Bible on salvation through Jesus Christ and they rip it out!

Several time the Lord warns against “adding and taking away from his word." Deuteronomy 4:2 reads: “YE SHALL NOT ADD unto the word…NEITHER SHALL YE DIMINISH ought from it...” Proverbs 30:6 reads, “ADD THOU NOT unto his words” And just in case you missed it, GOD’S LAST WARNING is Revelation 22:18-19, IF ANY MAN SHALL ADD unto these things. And if any man shall TAKE WAY FROM THE WORDS of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life." Do you want to have your part taken out of the book of life then just continue as you are using the perverted texts that have been referenced in this writings remembering that there are more than 200 pervert texts and counterfeit some called bibles. All of these are Satanic doctrine of the old serpent, Satan, the devil himself Satan will use anything within his grasp to cause doubt in man kind and to neglect the perfect word of God which is the authorized version of The King James Bible.

And despite these clear warming, the new versions, take out and add text over and over! One of the greatest verses in all the Bible, Matthew 18:11 “For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost" – THEY TAKE IT OUT! They take out: Romans 16:24, Mark 11:25, Acts 15:34, Luke 23:17, Acts 28:29, John 5:4, Mark 7:16, 9:44,46 and many more – as your Bible is cut apart! The NIV completely removes 17 verses! The RSV – 25! The NASV – 17! NRSV – 18!

The NIV removes 64, 576 words which would equal removing over 30 complete books of the Bible.

Jesus says in Luke 4:4..."It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY WORD OF GOD". Not according to the perverted texts, In fact, they tear out the last half of Luke 4:4, "BUT BY EVERY WORD OF GOD."

BUT THEY’RE EASIER TO READ

One of the lies used to promote these per-versions is “they’re easier to read and understand” But according to a Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level analysis, The King James Bible is by far the easier! Out of 26 different categories – the King James graded easier in a whopping 23! (New Age Bible Versions, Riplinger, pp. 195-209)

AREN’T THEY MORE RELIABLE?

But haven’t “older and more reliable manuscripts been discovered” since the King James Bible? Dr. Sam Gipp writes. “The fact is, that the King James translators had ALL OF THE READINGS available to them that modern critics have available to them today. Not only that, but most of the recent discoveries support the King James Bible! And furthermore, it is a well documented fact that 90 – 95 percent of all readings agree with the King James Bible! SO WHY ALL THE CHANGES?

Your King James Bible is attacked by preachers, some intentional and some simply out of ignorance, by “correcting” it with “THE ORIGINALS”. There is one itsy-bitsy problem. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS “THE ORIGINAL”! We don’t have the “originals” Moses, or Paul or David wrote. There are no set of “ORIGINALS” on the face of his earth! The ghost of “THE ORIGINALS” is a LIE! (See John 8:44)

Preachers, by the thousands will stand weekly in the pulpit and “correct” your King James Bible by saying, “This is an unfortunate translation” or “a better reading would be” or “this word in the Greek” can also be translated. “Where is the Lord God? The one who spoke” the world into existence – can He not preserve His word as He promised in Psalms 12:7 and Matthew 24:35? Did GOD Almighty NOT know what He was inspiring? Does the Lord need these “Bible correctors” to “help” Him “straighten-out His word.

As God promised, He has preserved His word for the English people in the King James Bible. Proverbs 16:10 “A divine sentence is in the lips of the KING.” Ecclesiastes 8:4 says, “Where the word of a “KING” is there is power”…King James. “James” is not an English word but a Hebrew word. Do you know the Hebrew word for James is Jacob! You never guess what Psalms 147:9 says "He showeth HIS WORD unto JACOB."

2 Timothy 2:9 reads… “the word of God is NOT BOUND”. Anybody can freely print, distribute, and reproduce the King James Bible, without asking anybody for permission! All other translations are “bound” by copyright laws. Who would seriously think the word of Almighty God is “BOUND” by copyright laws?

Let’s now take a quick look at some of the persons responsible for some of the perverted, corrupt, and counterfeit text they call Bibles.

The Men of Modern Translations

Origen - Lived in Alexandria, Egypt.
Tertullian (AD 160-220) writes how Alexandrians deliberately corrupted manuscripts.
Eusebius was his scribe - commissioned by Roman Emperor Constantine.

B.F. Westcott - A spiritualist and necromancer. Started "The Ghostly Guild" to study paranormal activity. Considered a father of the modern channeling movement by "The Occult Underground", which is a history of modern occultism and the New Age. "The remission of sins has always been connected with Baptism." "No one now holds that the 1st three chapters of Genesis give a literal history...I could never understand how anyone reading them with open eyes could think they did."

"Hell is not the place of punishment of the guilty, but Hades is the common abode of departed spirits.

"Christ was and is perfectly man. He never spoke directly of himself as God."

F.J.A. Hort - - Purgatory..."a great and important truth."
Called the KJV "villainous".
Believed wholeheartedly in Darwin and Evolution.
"No such state as Eden ever existed".
"Finite sin cannot deserve infinite punishment."
Also considered a father of the modern channeling movement by "The Occult Underground", which is a history of modern occultism and the New Age.

B.F. Westcott and F.J. A. Hort were good friends and exhorted each other in the things they were dong to pervert, corrupt, and counterfeit the true word of God.

Virginia Melloncott - NIV Translator. Admitted spiritualist and lesbian.

Edwin Palmer - Chief NIV Translator. Had final authority on all decisions.

Calvin Linton - NIV Translator. Calls Christians "amusingly uninformed" who "presume the Holy Spirit dictated the actual words of the text of the original writers".

Vance Smith - NIV Translator. Unitarian. "It is well understood that the New Testament contains neither precept nor example which really sanctions the religious worship of Jesus Christ."

Catholics - Jesus was not born sinless, only Mary was.

Lutherans, Presbyterians, Episcopalians, Unitarians - All represented on NIV translation committee.

J.B. Phillips - NASB Translator. "Does Hell exist, I seriously doubt this."
"Those who give themselves in love to others did in fact 'know God'".
"I felt bound to abandon the God-dictated-every-word-from-cover-to-cover attitude."

Philip Schaff - Chief NASB Translator.
"...the moonshine theory of the inerrant apostolic autographs."

This information is just a small speck of all the things that Satan has tried to initiate to discredit the only true word of God which is the Authorized King James version and is the only Bible that contains the word Authorized which say a lot about the King James Bible.

Hi, just to tell you a little about myself, my name is James L. Kennedy (Jim). I do not profess to be a biblical scholar or have all the answer concerning interpretation of the King James Bible. I am a born again Christian saved by the grace of God, who believes that God manifested his Son, Jesus Christ in the flesh, who was born of a virgin, lived to be approximately 33 years of age. Christ was crucified on a cross, raised himself from the dead on the third day and was seen by a number of people recognized him and appeared unto his disciples and after a while ascended into heaven where he sits on the right hand of GOD. I can do nothing to get into heaven on my own and believe that I can only get there because of the sacrifice that God’s Son made for you and me which was the shading of his blood as a sacrifice which covers my sins from the face of God. There are a number of verses in the Bible on which I stand concerning my personal salvation and forgiveness of sin and I will only state a couple of them which are:

Romans 10: 9 – 10, and 13 Verse 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. Verse 10: For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Verse 13: For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shalt be saved.

I am a Deacon in the church I attend, a responsibility that I take very seriously and pray that I carry out my duties according to the word of God. Since you are on my church web site, then you know which church I attend and if you are wanting and willing to hear the word of God being given in all our services, then I cordially invite you to come and joins us and receive the blessings that God has in store for you.

I thank you for the time you have spend on our website and hope that it has helped to shade a little light on the things that Satan has done and is still doing to pervert, corrupt and counterfeit his words which are contained in the Authorized King James Bible.
