The Damnable New International Version
By David J. Stewart
"...there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ" -Galatians 1:7
Not too many believers have the heart of God nowadays. They have God's Holy Spirit living in their soul, but they've never yielded their mind and will to God. Many believers today are immature, not grounded in the Word. One of the big problems is that many believers are using corrupted Bibles.
I guarantee you that most of the professed Christians who deny the pre-tribulation rapture are using an NIV (New International Version) of the Bible. The NIV removes or changes 65,000 words as compared to the King James Bible. The only reliable English Bible today is the authorized 1611 King James Bible. God's word has been preserved in the English speaking language in the King James translation. As the King James translators said themselves...
"We never thought from the beginning, that we should need to make a new Translation, nor yet to make of a bad one a good one ... but to make a good one better." -SOURCE (Preface to the King James Bible)
As believers are being led astray from the True Word of God--they are falling into heresy, compromise, and even apostasy. The King James Bible is powerful. Listen to the words of Hebrews 4:12 in the King James Bible... "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."
All of the modern bible versions have been watered down, diluted; they've lost their potency. Today's bible versions are powerless, wimpy, and impotent. The NIV horrifyingly reduces "God was manifest in the flesh" in 1st Timothy 3:16 down to "he was revealed in a body." The NIV even removes the important word "begotten" from John 3:16; thus attacking Christ's deity.
Corrupt Bibles Remove the "Love of God"
King James Bible: "Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren."
New International Version (NIV): "This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers."
It is NOT surprising that professed Christians who use such flawed bible versions would also believe that God hates sinners. Here's a classic example... 1st John 3:16 in the King James Bible reads, "Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren." Now here's the perverted NIV... "This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers."
Notice how the NIV butchers completely remove "the love of God" from 1st John 3:16. The New King James Bible butchers also pervert the same Scripture. It is wicked!!! There is a science to word usage, and even the slightest changes can produce an entirely different meaning. The NIV is packed full of such subtle word changes, and some not so subtle, which have launched an epidemic of false doctrines.
The NIV Brutally Attacks Jesus' Deity
I recently received a letter from a man, who quoted me Philippians 2:6 from the NIV to claim that Jesus was not the manifestation of the Godhead. Here's Philippians 2:6 from the King James Bible, "Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God." Now here's the damnable NIV... "Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped." Do you see why so many people are being deceived by Satan nowadays? It is obvious to the faithful Christian who is awake to righteousness.
If I had my way, I would burn every New International Version of the Bible in existence! I would burn every copy of Today's International Version as well. I would burn every copy of the corrupted New King James Version. In fact, I would burn every perverted Bible out there, including the Living Bible and Good News for Modern Man. I would burn the Revised Standard Version. God only wrote one book folks! Matthew 4:4 commands us to live by "every word" of the Bible. To do that we must have an "every word" Bible. We have it in the 1611 King James Bible which has been tested and proven trustworthy over the centuries.
The NIV Removes the Blood of Jesus from Colossians 1:14
Listen friend, the NIV changed 1st John 3:16 to say that Jesus died so we could know "what love is"; but the King James Bible states that Jesus died so we could know THE LOVE OF GOD. God loves you! God loves me! God loves all sinners, and thankfully so, or we'd all spend eternity in Hell without hope. Praise God, He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to pay for our sins. Jesus shed His precious blood.
By the way, the demonic NIV even removes the blood of Jesus from Colossians 1:14. Here's Colossians 1:14 from the King James Bible, "In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins." Here's the hell-spawned NIV... "in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins." Don't believe it, go check for yourself! And the most tragic thing is that the NIV is the most popular bible amongst Christians nowadays.
"The translation has become the most popular modern English translation of the Bible, having sold more than 215 million copies worldwide"
How tragic and sad! Satan has tricked us into swapping our double-edged Sword (Hebrews 4:12) for a plastic knife!
The Heresy of "Lordship Salvation" is Rooted in the NIV
The NIV has produced an generation of Lordship Salvationists who foolishly believe that a person cannot be saved without making Jesus Lord. Here's Romans 10:9 from the King James Bible, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." Now here's Romans 10:9 from the perverted NIV... "That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." The Bible never requires us to make Jesus our "Lord" to be saved, only trust Him as our Savior (John 14:6).
Peter shows clear evidence of this when he professed, "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God" in Matthew 16:16. Peter never confessed "Jesus is Lord." Rather, Peter received Jesus as the Messiah. Genesis 15:6 simply states that Abraham, "...believed in the LORD; and he (God) counted it to him for righteousness." Romans 4:5 plainly states, "But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." It is our faith upon Jesus as our Savior, because of the blood that He shed for our sins, that saves us (1st Peter 1:18,19).
Hypocritically, Lordship Salvationists will quote Scriptures about being saved by faith alone; but then require people to have some outward self-righteousness to validate their faith. Clearly they are confusing the ROOT of a believer's faith, which Paul speaks of in Romans; in contrast to the FRUIT of a believer's faith, which is spoken of by James. For more information please read, "Are We Justified by Faith and Works?" The NIV is from Hell, which is exactly where the Lordship Salvation gang is headed. Yes, this means John MacArthur is going to Hell.
Don't be deceived my friend, if you believe that you have to do as little as give a cup of water to someone to be saved, you will burn in Hell for all eternity. The blood of Christ is what takes our sins away (not just the death of Christ), and ANY self-righteous efforts on our part is a total rejection of Christ's work of redemption.
What Does the NIV, the Satanic Bible, and Gay Sex Have in Common?
According to Wikipedia.org, the New International Bible (NIV) is the most popular Bible version today. What Zondervan Publishers won't DARE tell you is that they are OWNED by Harper Collins, who also publishes The Satanic Bible and The Joy of Gay Sex. Doesn't it seem odd to anyone with a brain and a love for Christ that the world's largest Bible publisher (Zondervan) is owned by the same company, HarperCollins, that publishes The Satanic Bible and The Joy of Gay Sex."
Every pastor and Christian using the NIV are supporting these demonic publications. Furthermore, the Jehovah's Witnesses' New World Translation comes from same Greek manuscripts as does the NIV! The Jehovah's Witnesses' Interlinear Greek New Testament is based upon the corrupt Greek of Westcott and Hort, openly admitted in front of the publication.
This is unbelievable folks! Destroy your NIV. Why in the world would you want an NIV bible that removes the word "begotten" from John 3:16, says that Jesus couldn't grasp equality with God in Philippians 2:6, removes the name "Jesus" in 38 places, completely removes the word "Godhead" from the Bible, completely removes the word "sodomite" from the Bible, removes the word "hell" 40 times, and changes every mention of people "worshipping" Jesus to a mere "knelt"? Thank God for the King James Bible!
