NIV Chips Away at Doctrine of Jesus Christ
New International Version is preparing the world for ANOTHER JESUS!
By David J. Stewart
Matthew 7:20, "Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them."
The New International Version (NIV) was originally published in 1984. Another version was released in 2010, official published in 2011 by Zondervan Publishers. The Devil has used the love of money to lure evil men and women to butcher the Word of God.
The translators (Committee On Biblical Translation, CBT) of the NIV are pulling on the same rope as the Devil. The religion of the New Age will be a religion of self, of doing your own thing. Satan's only will for your life is to hinder you from obeying God. The NIV is vague, watered down and corrupt. The Lord Jesus Christ is under attack like never before. You'd think that if there was one place in the world where Jesus was uplifted, it would be in the Bible. Not so in the NIV, as you will now see!
In the precious and trustworthy King James Bible, we read in numerous places in the New Testament where people WORSHIPPED Jesus. One such passage of Scripture is a leper who worshipped Jesus in Matthew 8:2. If you look in the NIV (either version) you will find that the translators dishonestly changed the word "worship" to "knelt." Certainly, you can kneel before a king without worshipping him. This is a horrible error in the NIV Bible! Why would anyone diminish the deity (Godhood) of Jesus Christ?
Of the 54 times "hell" is mentioned in the King James Bible, the NIV reduces it down to 14 times. The King James Bible states in 1st Timothy 3:16 that "GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH"; but the NIV waters it down to... he was revealed in a body. In Philippians 2:6 of the NIV Jesus is no longer EQUAL with God; but rather, could not grasp equality with God. The NIV is Wicked! Vile! Blasphemy!
As strong evidence of malicious intent behind the NIV, consider that the NIV translators completely removed the critically important Word, “GODHEAD” from Acts 17:29, Romans 1:20 and Colossians 2:9!!! The word “GODHEAD” is not mentioned even once in the NIV Bible. This is reason enough to run as far away from the NIV as fast as you can! They've removed 1st John 5:7 too. Only a fool (or someone who is ignorant of the doctrinal integrity of the King James Bible) would fail to see just how corrupt and antichrist the NIV is!!! Satan wrote the NIV!
Take a look at how they NIV translators perverted Psalm 9:17 concerning hell.
Here is John 1:3 from the perverted New International Version of 2011, aka, NIV 2011...
John 1:3 (New International Version, ©2011)3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
Now here is what the inspired and trustworthy King James Bible says...
John 1:3, “All things were made BY HIM; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”
There is a big difference between the words “through” and “by,” evidenced irrefutably by the false teaching by Seventh Day Adventists and Jehovah's Witnesses that Jesus didn't create anything of His own power; but rather, God the Father created all things THROUGH Christ. Do you see how they attack the deity of Christ? The NIV agrees with the false theology of Jehovah's Witnesses and Seventh Day Adventists (both groups teach that God the Father created the universe THROUGH Jesus and not BY Him). The King James Bible teaches that ALL THINGS WERE MADE BY HIM in John 1:3. Words are critically important. God told us to live by EVERY WORD of the Bible (Matthew 4:4). Words are worth fighting over, because by changing the Words of God, the Devil's crowd are changing the meaning of the Bible.
In the NIV 2011, the Holy Spirit is no longer a HE to appease feminists and homosexuals. Lesbians are taking over in America! It won't be long before we see LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered) cross-dressers dressed in drag as judges, politicians and preachers. We have brought evil upon ourselves. The coming of the Lord is at hand. It could be at any moment! The Lord is angry at the wicked (Psalm 7:11). There's no greater sin than to corrupt the Words of God to deceive the masses. The NIV translators are catering to the homosexual and feminist agendas of this evil generation.
Romans 10:9 perverts the meaning of the word "Lord" concerning salvation, falsely teaching that a person must proclaim "Jesus is Lord" to be saved. The King James Bible doesn't say that; but rather, "the Lord Jesus Christ." There is a world of difference between the two variations. I'll stick with the old, time-proven and faithful King James Bible. You can have the "new and improved" toxic translations that Satan is publishing today, such as the NIV.
The NIV diminishes the deity of Jesus Christ, strips away His glory to be worshipped, and corrupts the meaning of salvation. "Obey" removed from the NIV. There is so much wrong with the NIV versions. I hope and pray that God will convict your heart if you use modern corrupt Bibles. Corrupt versions produce corrupt doctrines and a corrupt gospel. The very fact that the perverted NIV teaches Lordship Salvation ought to show believers that something is wrong with the doctrine. If you want the Bible that uplifts the precious name of Jesus Christ, then you need a King James Bible! If you want the Bible that faithfully teaches the inspired Words of God, then you want the King James Bible! If you want the Bible that faithfully teaches the doctrine of Christ, then you want the King James Bible!
The King James translation is not a "version," it is the Bible!
Gender-Inclusive Language: Accurate Translation?
If the NIV is so accurate, why is it changing the original masculine words to masculine and feminine? Because the NIV is not accurate. Its translators use dynamic equivalency to translate/rewrite some of the worst manuscripts available. The result is that they render what THEY THINK God meant and what SEEMS relevant today. They are used to manipulating God's word for their profit, that's how they could inaccurately translate these gender-inclusive editions with such ease. Contrast this with the King James translators who simply rendered what the best manuscripts said, word-for-word--that is formal equivalency. The authorized King James is the only version that uses formal equivalency. They didn't put human interpretation in it--give me that book!
Look at the shifty, changing nature of the "philosophy" of the IBS (publisher of the NIV):
Virtually all other contemporary Bible translations already reflect gender treatments consistent with the language of today. However, the NIV has essentially become the Bible of the evangelical church, which has come to trust in and depend upon the NIV's CURRENT ACCURACY, clarity and readability...
...many people in North America don't want the NIV changed, even if many Bible SCHOLARS feel a revision could MORE CLEARLY reflect shifts in English language usage, and MORE PRECISELY render the MEANING of the original texts into English for current and future generations." (Victor I . Oliver, board chair of the International Bible Society).
These shysters have so many people hoodwinked! In the above-quote, IBS claims that gender-inclusive language more clearly reflect shifts in English language usage--no it does not. The words "he" and "she" still mean what they always did. The quote is also telling in that Mr. Oliver speaks of the NIV's "current accuracy". The Bible tells me that God don't change and that He's magnified His word above all His name--how then can His word change and have different levels of accuracy given time and place when God is eternal?
The NIV is a Cash Cow
The NIV/IBS is politically and economically motivated. They are trying to appease everyone and sell them Bibles. The NIV is not about the truth, it is about makin' money. Since the "current accuracy" may change, that means that in five years it may not be accurate so then that means they have to put out another edition for the people to buy with their hard-earned bucks. Look at a few of the NIV "editions" that IBS publishes:

...and this is not all of them. I am looking directly at the 1997 Scripture Catalogue of the International Bible Society, publishers of the NIV. I have another catalogue that offers over 750 different Bibles. If this ain't confusion, I don't know what is.
