Examples of New Version Corruption of Truth

E-mail Print PDF

Many, many people today are corrupted by new versions, because the versions themselves are corrupt. They are corrupt because they present a false picture of what the Lord says. (The following information has partly been taken from ‘The Authorized King James Bible or A multitude of Versions. Which?’, issued by the Trinitarian Bible Society, and partly from my own material).

When we examine the same verses in new versions against the KJAV, we find huge differences that take us away from God and His Son’s deity. They also maintain a Romanistic-Arminian stance: that we can choose to obtain salvation by our own efforts. Below are only a few examples. In reality there are thousands!

KJAV: 1 Peter 2:2

“As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:”

The meaning of this verse in the KJAV (and, therefore, in all the genuine original sources) is conveyed simply... we are born-again and saved, and then need the word of God to enable us to grow spiritually. In no way does the text tell us that the ‘spiritual food’ enables us to be saved – salvation comes BEFORE we eat the spiritual food. Indeed, we CANNOT eat this food for ANY reason prior to salvation, because the unsaved spirit is dead and unable to function God-ward.

Yet, in their satanic wisdom, the new versions change this eternal truth to mean that when we eat the spiritual food, we are thus saved. That is, we can obtain salvation just by eating or drinking this spiritual food! By saying this, the new versions also dismiss the fact that we are dead in our sins and CANNOT function spiritually until the Holy Spirit causes us to be born-again of His own volition and free gift.

“And you [hath he quickened], who were dead in trespasses and sins... For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” (Ephesians 2:1 through to 9)

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.” (1 Corinthians 2:14).

“And you [hath he quickened], who were dead in trespasses and sins;

Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.” (Ephesians 2: 1-3)

“No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.” (John 6:44)

Elsewhere in scripture we are told that unsaved man hates God and is not naturally drawn to Him, so will never seek salvation of his own accord, no matter how well-versed he is in scripture. But, new versions think they can ignore the very words of Christ and change what scripture says!

‘Other’ Versions – 1 Peter 2:2

Good News for Modern Man: “Be like unborn babies, always thirsty for the pure spiritual milk, so that by drinking it you may grow up and be saved.”

New World Translation (JW ‘bible’): “And as newborn infants, form a longing for the unadulterated milk belonging to the word, that through it you may grow to salvation.”

New American Standard Version: “Like newborn babes, long for the pure milk of the word, that by it you may grow in respect of salvation.”

In each of these sample new versions we see that babies choose to drink the milk of God’s word and this leads to their salvation (works).

A similar evil is foisted onto Matthew 18:11, which states: “for the Son of man is come to save that which was lost”. But, believing that modern men know far more than the original writers and God Himself, the NWT simply omits this verse, which it has to do in order that it can maintain its belief that Jesus Christ is not the Son of God! The Amplified Version places the whole verse in italics, indicating that it is not in the original sources... even though it is. They claim it is omitted because ‘recent scholarship’ shows it was not in the original. This ‘recent scholarship’ however, refers to the corrupt later sources found in the heretical Alexandrian sources and much later Vaticanus and Sinaiticus! The oldest and truest sources are used by the KJAV (See article KJAV-009)

The New American Standard version keeps the verse, but adds a footnote to throw serious doubt on its legitimacy: “Most ancient manuscripts omit this verse.” By “most” they mean the 1%-5% of corrupt Alexandrian, etc., sources that teach heresy! The Living New Testament also adds a similar footnote. These all intend to elevate the corrupt sources so that readers, who do not check the validity of the footnotes, start to doubt the truth found in the KJAV.

The Person of Christ

Remember that ALL new versions omit or change what the original genuine sources say, and insert the heretical beliefs of the newer corrupt sources that hated the true beliefs found in ALL genuine churches. Read the KJAV verses shown below, and then read what the same verses say in the new versions! For this purpose we will look at only six modern versions; they are numbered, and the numbers after each verse show which of the new versions omit or change the wording. Remember that when a version puts a word or verse in italics it implies it is not found in the ‘new’ sources and so heretics must be right!

Remember, both omitting and italicising words or verses implies that they do not exist except in the oldest and best sources (as used by the KJAV). Translators (who do not deserve the title) thus persuade readers that the new versions are correct and cast doubt on the KJAV. There are thousands of similar amendments made by new versions to the rest of scripture.

Do not assume that because someone is an expert in Greek, Hebrew or Aramaic, that their intentions are honest or biblical! Most of the new-version translators are and were unsaved, or heretical in belief. Some of them aim to deceive and condone the Westcott and Hort methodology, which hated the KJAV. And some, the majority, ASSUME that the W&H methodology is correct without examining their basis for translation or the use of corrupt sources!

In each and every case their omission or italicising of texts is done without true warrant, and without a genuine appreciation of what the Alexandrian and other corrupt sources are really about. When, for example, the personal name of ‘Jesus’ is removed from its adjoining word, ‘Christ’, it leaves only the word ‘Christ’.

The reason is satanic at root – by leaving only the word ‘Christ’ the word can be used by ANYONE claiming to be Christ, especially in the occult sense. Indeed, it is used extensively in eastern cults. The Son of God is thus removed from the scene, and gullible readers of new versions become easy prey for eastern cults who claim that their (false) ‘Christ’ will come soon. Not the Christ of the KJAV, but the ‘Christ’ of cults the occult, and the New Age believers promoting Satan’s One World religion.

By leaving out ‘Lord’ the deity of Jesus Christ is reduced to human power and authority. By removing God’s election of souls, we are left with the Arminian belief in self-salvation by one’s own choice. And so the sorry list of cultic and satanic deception reaps many souls in our churches. It means that the majority who are already saved are ‘softened up’ by Satan to receive further deception, and many thousands are misled into believing ‘another gospel that is no gospel’, thus believing they are saved when they are not.

And, on top of this, the foul new versions allow all kinds of wicked men to abuse scripture at will – JWs, homosexuals, environmentalists, and so on.

The evidence (and actual proof) against the new versions grows taller and creates a stench in the Lord’s nostrils, and in the nostrils of all who are genuine believers. Those who ARE genuinely saved will be seriously challenged by the truth about the KJAV and new versions; they will examine that truth and eventually (sooner rather than later) renounce the new versions. And they will teach everyone they know the truth, especially if they are pastors who influence the spiritual lives of some or many. Their change back to truth is a mark of their salvation and love for the Lord.

But, probably the majority, those who refuse all these evidences, will become more stubborn, deliberately preferring the deception of the new versions. These are the unsaved. Their destruction is spoken of in the true word of God. Sadly, these will go on to continually mislead unsaved souls, damaging the glory and honour of God.
