Did Jesus Christ ever begin? No, of course not, He has always been. Jesus is God, and has no origin (Hebrews 7:3). If He did, then He wouldn't be God. So if the NIV says that Jesus had an origin, you know it's blasphemy! In Micah 5:2, God the Father is prophesying the birth of His Son in a particular town, Bethlehem.
"But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting." -Micah 5:2 (King James Bible)
Did you read that... "FROM EVERLASTING." Well that would be in the past forever. It means forever! Now read what the diabolical NIV says...
"But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times." (New International Version)
...from ancient times? This makes Jesus a Creature within time. By the way, it's dumb to say "origins." How can you have more than one origin? How can you start more than once? This just shows how stupid these people are who put the NIV together. It says that Jesus originated... that His origins were within TIME. BLASPHEMY!!! It's wicked, vile, devilish, Hellish, blasphemy! That's your New Age NIV.
