Greek Versions & Bible Translations

"" - 3MB

KJV NIV NASB Living Amplified RSV

Are there people out there who want to stop the Gospel?

Are there some pastors, priests and rabbis who are not saved?  And are there some seminary professors who pervert the Bible's message?

Well, some of the them have weaseled themselves onto Bible translation teams, using corrupted Greek and even inventing or changing Bible doctrines to suit their unredeemed beliefs.  They are Bible editors, not translators!

Many of the modern translations are missing key doctrinal Scripture verses.

Open your Bible and check for Acts 8:37.  In the (KJV) Holy Bible it states:  "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."

(The UKJV for Acts 8:37:  "And Philip said, If you believe with all of your heart, you may. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.")

But some modern English translations, based on the corrupted (by Westcott and Hort, 2 non-Christian Greek scholars of the 19th Century) Alexandrian texts, omit this verse!

Also check - (KJV) Luke 11:2-3  "And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, 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."

(The UKJV for Luke 11:2-3  "And he said unto them, When all of you pray, say, Our Father which are in heaven, Hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day our daily bread.")

If verse 2 has been "abbreviated" in your Bible translation then some of God's Word has been removed from your Bible.  Why, what kind of persons would do such a thing?  Who would want to weaken the Bible?

Many of the modern translations want to REMOVE the last half of the last chapter of Mark.  See this article:   Some of the modern (based on the Westcott &: Hort Greek) translations insert a note like: "These verses are missing (sic) from some reliable manuscripts." It is the opposite; it is a few corrupted ancient manuscripts (passed down by "scholars" instead of saints), that question and weaken the Word of God.

The terms: "essentially literal" or "dynamic equivalence" sometimes really means, "deception mixed into what was truth".  How about this verse?  Is it in your preferred study Bible?

Matthew 17:21  (KJV) "Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting."  Do demonic powers like to be kicked out?

Matthew 17:21  (UKJV) "Nevertheless this kind goes not out but by prayer and fasting."  Is this verse in your Bible translation?

Now then - just who would want to have verses like this one subtly removed from your Bible? 
(Hint: Genesis 3:1a  "Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field...")

The corrupted Bible versions (based on the Westcott & Hort Greek) have removed FASTING and its importance!  The sin of sodomy has also been marginalized.  The power of the blood of Jesus is minimized.  They're pushing for a corrupted "weak God" Christianity.

Here is (KJV) Isaiah 14:12  "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!"

(Here is (UKJV) Isaiah 14:12  "How are you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how are you cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations!")

But in the corrupted Bibles they are adding the word "star" to their unbiblical version of Isaiah 14:12.  Why?  "Star" is not in the Masoretic Hebrew, nor in the Greek Septuagint version of Isaiah.  That is a modern addition, not from translating the text but rather from the unbiblical beliefs within some translation teams.

You see, JESUS is "the bright and morning star" - not Satan!

Revelation 22:16  (KJV) "I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star."

(Revelation 22:16  (UKJV) "I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.")

So why would some translators? (...rather, are they - Bible editors? ... and ones who are purposefully corrupting the Word?...) add a word to Isaiah, that has the effect of confusing Jesus with Satan?  It is a subtle change, like the work and words of the Serpent back in Eden.  The Word of God must be preserved, read, and used as it is - not as some would wish to change and corrupt it from the truth.

The corrupted Bible translations lead to confusion and error.  There is much more information on this topic.  Please see Dr. Kent Hovind's Seminar #7,  There are also a few books that are helpful.  Here are two titles:  "In Awe of thy Word" by Riplinger <>, and "Gipp's Understandable History of the Bible" by Samuel C. Gipp.

There are two "updated" KJV versions out there.  One is from: "Easy Reader KJV" (a.k.a. KJVER; ©2007) and the other is called the "UKJV" (Updated KJV; Public Doman; published in 2005) by "Anonymous", available in print via:  "Lulu" on-line publishers.

Some Bible translations are more accurate than others.  The KJV Bible of 1611 has stood the test of time!  And it is based on the Textus Receptus (in English: The "Received Text", preserved down through 2000 years, by the saints;  over 5000 manuscript portions).  But there is evil in the world.  And there is a second version of the "New Testament Greek"; one compiled by two superb Greek scholars in the late 19th Century:  Westcott & Hort.  But neither man was a Christian!  Westcott and Hort may have known Biblical Greek, but neither man knew the Lord.  They purposefully chose to elevate a few corrupted Greek manuscripts (from "scholars") over the Received Text (over 5000 fragments) preserved and used by believers since the time of the Apostles.

The Authorized Version of 1611, now handed down to us as KJV (and UKJV), is based on the Greek preserved by the saints.  All the verses are there and accurately translated.  Below is a severe warning:

Revelation 22:18-19  (UKJV) "For I testify unto every man that hears the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."

For a good KJV study Bible, the "Defender's Study Bible" is recommended; also "The Evidence Bible"; and the KJV version of the Thompson Chain Reference Bible.
