Lineage of the Modern Corrupt Versions


Compiled by Dr. Ken Matto

Just as the King James Bible has a rich lineage of uncorrupted transmission through the ages, the modern versions also have a lineage. Their lineage is one of corruption, deletion, omission, addition, rejection and confusion. Modern versions are the fruit of arrogant scholarship which includes homosexuals who worked on the NIV. God never calls unbelievers to preach and neither would He call a sodomite to translate His Word.

If your pastor rejects the pure lineage of the King James Bible and accepts the corrupt translations, then he is a proponent of modern scholarship which exalts the god of education above the God of the Bible. They are seriously deceived and are a danger to spiritual growth.



Rudolph Kittel's Biblical Hebraica**

Dead Sea Scrolls consulted

From the Translator's Preface in the NIV:

"Sometimes a variant Hebrew reading in the margin of the Masoretic Text was followed instead of the text itself."

"The translators also consulted the more important early versions-the Septuagint; Aquila, Symmachus and Theodotion; the Vulgate; The Syriac Peshitta; the Targums; and for the Psalms the Juxta Hebraica of Jerome. Readings from these versions were occasionally followed where the Masoretic Text seemed doubtful and where accepted principles of textual criticism showed that one or more of these textual witnesses appeared to provide the correct reading."

This is known as "eclectic" scholarship. In other words, if I don't like what I read in the manuscripts, there is always another writing by an unbelieving, perverted scholar who will tell me what I want to hear.

**Between 1933 and 1944 Rudolph Kittel had a leadership role in the "Forschungsabteilung Judenfrage" which was a Nazi organization and publication. What a heritage the NIV has, homosexuals and Nazis! Do you still think your NIV is ordained of God? If you do, then you are just plain stupid!

(1) Jay Green's translation is listed here because he, like the modern scholars, disputes whether Acts 8:37 & 1 John 5:7 are really in the text. 1 John 5:7-8 has been found in the Old Latin Vulgate (not Jerome's) and early church lectionaries. Acts 8:37 is found in the Old Latin Vulgate Version, a Middle Egyptian Version and a Syriac Version.
