I do not read the King James Bible because it sounds pretty.
What I care about is getting ALL the verses ... the whole Word of God. I read
KJV because the other English modern versions have omitted key verses and
changed certain important words and names. Years back, I used to read all the
different versions out there but now I read the KJV exclusively. I have found that
since reading only the KJV for the past 10 years, my understanding of the
Scriptures improved tremendously.
When I was a teen, I was always confused when people in church sang; "Jesus,
you shine like the bright morning star." I was confused because my NIV bible
called Lucifer the morning star.
In Bible College, we were required to use the NIV and it was not until I returned
back to the KJV that I gained a better understanding of doctrine.
Since the beginning, Satan in the garden of Eden attempted to twist the Word of
God. In the past, he burned Bibles and tortured people who owned one and in
some countries, he still does.
Do you think the devil has changed his plans?
Has he given up in the free world? If the devil cannot burn the Bibles, what is his
plan? He corrupts, twists and changes key verses and omits certain passages in
these new translations right under the nose of the Christian community. Burning
the Bible or omitting verses from it...same thing. The end result is the same.
If you cannot see that something is wrong with the picture, then take a look
Words completely omitted in the Newer Versions:
This is just a taste of what has been omitted. There are so many more examples that I have not
Matt. 6:13, "For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.
Matt. 7:21. Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.
Matt. 15:8, "This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth"
Matt. 18:11. For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
Mark 15:28. And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered
with the transgressors.
I John 4:3, "Christ is come in the flesh"
I John 5:13, "and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God"
Rev. 1:11, "I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last"
NOW LET'S LOOK AT JUST A FEW VERSES IN THE DIFFERENT
I John 5:7 reads as follows:
NIV- For there are three that testify:
NASV- And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is the truth.
NWT- For there are three witness bearers,
KJV- For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father,
the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
The verse in the KJV completely coincides with Jesus saying;
"I and the Father are one."
And Genesis chapter 1, as well as so many places in the Old Testament
that refer to God as being three persons. To delete this verse is so dangerous
because you alter the meaning and three that bear record in heaven is VERY
important. Some scholars might say; "we leave it out because it is not found
in the original manuscript." Well, I would much rather leave it in than take it
out. It coincides with all of Scripture. To change the Trinity is to delete God's
essence of who He is. God said in Genesis; "Let us make man in our image."
NIV- How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star ...
KJV- How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!
how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
In this NIV passage, "Lucifer" has been changed to "Morning Star".
This is so frightening because the Bible defines the Morning Star as Jesus
Revelation 22:16 says:
I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches.
I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
2 Cor. 2:17:
KJV- "For we not as many which CORRUPT the word of God"
NIV, NASV, NRSV, RSV- "For we are not, as so many, PEDDLING the
word of God"
PEDDLING????? COULD THEY SOFTEN THE VERSE MORE?
CORRUPT MEANS JUST WHAT IT SAYS SO WHY CHANGE IT?
Mark 10:24 :
NIV- Jesus said again, Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!
KJV - Jesus answered again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it
for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!
Hmmmm.....do you smell a rat in the NIV? I sure hope so. If you cannot, then
you better pray to the Lord for discernment. OMITTING THIS PART OF THE
VERSE IS VERY DANGEROUS BECAUSE BY OMITTING IT, THE
READER DOES NOT GET THE WHOLE THOUGHT OF WHAT JESUS
NASV- The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers,
hath glorified his Servant Jesus
KJV- The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers,
hath glorified his Son Jesus;
There is a HUGE DIFFERENCE in meaning. Son means a son, a servant is a
NASV- ...For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God. 12 So then
each one of us shall give account of himself to God.
KJV- ...for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. 12 So then
every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
Jesus has been given the authority to judge. The Judgement Seat of Christ is
different than the White Throne Judgement but you would not know this by
reading the NASV.
NIV- He said, "Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and
unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods."
KJV- He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of
the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.
There is only One God! To add an "s" at the end of the word completely distorts
NIV- Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom."
NASV- And he said, Jesus, remember me when thou comest in thy kingdom.
NWT- And he went on to say: "Jesus, remember me when you get into your
KJV- And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy
By the thief calling Jesus, "LORD", he acknowledged Jesus as being God.
Superior. Many called Jesus by His name but did not believe on Him. Those that
call Him Lord acknowledged who He was and is. To call him Lord was to give
NIV- After the Feast was over, while his parents were returning home, the boy
Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they were unaware of it.
KJV- And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus
tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.
Hmmmm...Joseph is bundled up into the words "his parents."
NASV- And his father and his mother were marvelling at the things which were
spoken concerning him;
(KJV)- And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were
spoken of him.
Joseph is not Jesus' father that is why it is so WRONG to put that in the Bible.
Joseph was Jesus' step-father. Jesus is God's Son, not Joseph's son. Do you see
how the devil likes to steal and twist the Word of God? Trying again to strip the
Deity of Christ verse by verse and passage by passage until subtely the reader has
doubts to the existance and character and person of Jesus Christ.

Those Thee's and Thou's by Henry M. Morris
"And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth; and I will be with thy
mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do." Exodus 4:15
These words of God, spoken to Moses concerning the mission he and his brother
Aaron were to undertake at Pharaoh's palace are one of numerous examples in
Scripture where the King James translation uses several different forms of the
second-person pronoun. In this one verse, we see the words "thou," "thy," "you," and
"ye," all fulfilling this function. Most modern translations would translate this sentence.
"You shall speak to him . . . and I will be with your mouth . . . and will teach you
what you shall do." Why would the King James translators use four different forms of
the pronoun when only "you" and "your" are used in modern versions?
The fact is that the Elizabethan-age English was able to make much finer distinctions
than modern English. That is, "thou," "thee," "thy," and "thine," were used for the
second person singular, whereas "ye," "you," "your," and "yours" were the
corresponding words for the plural. Different words also were used for subject, object
and possessive modifiers, as is still true for first and third-person pronouns.
In our text, God was telling Moses that He (Moses) was to speak to Aaron, and that
He (God) would teach both of them, not just Moses, what they were to do. This
distinction is clear in the King James English, but not in modern English. This is one of
the numerous examples where such fine points in the King James language are lost in
In the Lord's Prayer, for example, "Yours is the kingdom" could suggest that many
will possess the kingdom, where "thine is the kingdom" clearly recognizes one God
alone. Clear words are important for clear meanings, and Jesus said, "My words shall
not pass away" (Matthew 24:35).
