Bible Corrupters Remove the Word "Worshipped"
Many of the modern perversions of God's Word remove the word "worshipped" and replace it with the word "knelt." This is evil and blasphemous against the Lord Jesus Christ. There is a world of difference between the words "knelt" and " worshipped." A person can kneel before a king without worshipping him, but to worship someone signifies deity. People foolishly bow in worship to the Pope or various statues of saints or Mother Mary. This is idolatry because God has forbidden us from worshipping (or even bowing) to such objects (Exodus 20:3-5). Keep in mind the even "bowing" is a sin. Catholics who deny that they are praying to (or worshipping) Mary are still in grievous violation of Exodus 20:5 for bowing to Mary.
To no surprise, Catholic leaders in their official Catechism have completely removed the second of the Ten Commandments and have split the ninth commandment into two separate commands to make up for it. This is blatant evil. The Vatican has perverted the Truth of God's Word and is now trying to hide their evil. It is a sin to worship statues of saints. It is a sin to bow in praise of the Pope or any priests. Just as Meshach, Shadrach, and Abednego refused to bow to Nebuchadnezzar's golden image (Daniel 3:18), so should we refuse to bow to the idols and arrogant imposters of Roman Catholicism.
Likewise, we should refuse to allow the Bible corrupters to remove the rightful worship that Jesus Christ is worthy to receive ("Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created." —Revelation 4:11). Jesus Christ is Almighty God ("I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty." —Revelation 1:8) and is WORTHY of our worship. We should worship Jesus as God Almighty because that is Who He Is. In multiple places in the New Testament, people came to WORSHIP the Lord Jesus Christ...and Jesus worthily accepted it.
“And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.” —Matthew 8:2
“While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live.” —Matthew 9:18
“Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.” —Matthew 14:33
“Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.” —Matthew 15:25
“Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.” —Matthew 20:20
“And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.” —Matthew 28:9
“And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.” —Matthew 28:17
“And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit...But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him” —Mark 5:2, 6
Every King James Scripture I just quoted you has been perverted by the NIV corrupters. Here's what the horribly corrupted New International Version (NIV or better yet, HIV) has to say...
“Aman with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, 'Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.'” —Matthew 8:2 (NIV)
“While he was saying this, a ruler came and knelt before him and said, "My daughter has just died. But come and put your hand on her, and she will live.” —Matthew 9:18 (NIV)
And here are some corrupted passages from the English Standard Version (ESV)...
"And behold, a leper came to him and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.” —Matthew 8:2
"While he was saying these things to them, behold, a ruler came in and knelt before him, saying, 'My daughter has just died, but come and lay your hand on her, and she will live.'” —Matthew 9:18
Do you see how the Devil is diminishing the deity of Jesus Christ in the modern Bible PERversions?
All Modern Bible Versions are Corrupt!
Why would anyone remove the word "worshipped" concerning our Creator, Lord, and Saviour? The answer can only be rooted in Satan. To no surprise the NIV also removes the name "Jesus" (the name above every other name, Philippians 2:9) in numerous places. I am amazed that so many professed Christians are still blind to the work of the Devil in all of the modern versions. There have been over 200 new versions in the past few decades alone. Only a complete fool would add or subtract from God's Word for any reason.
If you don't have a King James Bible, then you DON'T have an inspired Bible!!!
Just As In Jesus' Day, the Religious Crowd Refuses to Worship Jesus
The Word of God plainly teaches that Jesus was worshipped by people from all walks of life, all except the religious leaders. Isn't it interesting that lepers and demon possessed people ran to Jesus' feet in worship, while the arrogant self-righteous religious leaders sought to kill Him. Nothing has changed. It's the religious Bible corrupting crowd that is doing more damage to the name of Christ than any other group today. I'd expect to see godless magazines endorsing Harry Potter's witchcraft, but I wanted to vomit when I found out that Christianity Today endorses Harry Potter's witchcraft. God's biggest enemies today are RELIGIOUS people; most of whom do not know God ("Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away" —2nd Timothy 3:5). Just as the Pharisees of Jesus' day are burning in the fires of Hell today, so will the godless religious leaders of today be burning in the fires of Hell tomorrow.
When Jesus was born, Babylonian wise men came from the East to worship the Saviour. You would have thought that the religious leaders would have gone to see Jesus, but instead they informed Herod of the whereabouts of the little Baby Jesus so Jesus could be murdered. The religious leaders knew where Christ was to be born, but they could have cared less and didn't go. Isn't this just like the religious world today? They claim the name of Christ, but their hearts are so far away from God. This world is filled with all sorts of religious people who practice their ceremonial rituals and sacraments, but they have never come to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. "Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth" —2nd Timothy 3:7. They have religion without Truth, Churchianity without Christianity. Jesus said in John 4:24 that God can only be worshipped in TRUTH, not heresy. This is why Jesus said in Mark 7:7, "Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." Oh don't be a fool my friend, turn to Jesus Christ now in belief, asking Him to forgive all your sins and to save you from Hell. Once you're saved, study and learn the 1611 King James Bible, and worship Jesus!!!
