Bible Versions Really An Issue?
|Verses “Taken Away” in the New Testament|
|T = Taken Away||F = Taken Away in Footnote|
|John 7:53 – 8:11||F||F||T||F||F||F|
|2 Cor. 13:14||T|
Many are taught to believe that the “oldest originals” did not contain these verses. However, the Codex Vaticanus and Sanaiticus (Alexandrian Texts) were found in a trash heap in Egypt and was missing tons of words and phrases of the true original texts (Textus Receptus or Received Text)
- Be warned no one was ever in Egypt writing the New Testament!
- Alexandrian peoples were known for embellishing allegorically writings they had found (which included removing words, phrases, and adding excerpts and opinions to the texts) they had no fear of God.
- Were not disciples of Jesus Christ
- Used Magic, and other false superstitions
- Idolizes the sun moon, stars
- Worshiped many false gods
First of all it is interesting that these two texts are allegedly the “inspired Word of God” but differ just among themselves over 3,000 times!
The most shocking thing to do is comparative reading of the versions with the KJV and look up Acts 8:37 and Daniel 3:25 where all the modern versions replace “Son of God” with “a son of the gods” this is amazing that there is such an attack on the Word of God. This is a foundational issue and we should be informed and alert at Satan’s counterfeits.
The NIV has 14 deleted verses total and John 5:4 is missing in the NIV; the situation is the same in the ESV, NRSV, CEV, NLT, and the net Bible. If you use the NASB or NCV you will see the verse, but it’s been placed inside brackets. Why is this so?
Who is attacking the authenticity of the Received Text? Just because manuscripts were found containing some words of scripture does not make them infallible nor does it mean that they came from a reliable source.
Over 64,575 missing in the NIV!
NIV was published by Zondervan but is now OWNED by Harper Collins, who also publishes the Satanic Bible and The Joy of …(sodomy)
What they DON’T tell you is that they are using the CORRUPTED Greek texts of heretics Westcott and Hort, two unsaved men who hated the Word of God. The King James Bible came from an entirely different Greek text (the Textus Receptus) which originated from Antioch, Rome, where believers were first called “Christians” (Acts 11:26). The corrupted Greek text which Westcott and Hort used originated from Egypt.
Easier to Read? NO!

- The ESV =13,478 big words
- KJV had the average of 8.78 average words per sentence
- ESV had 18.82.
These results show that the people of the ESV have lied about their translation being easier to read all along
NIV, ASB etc are no exception to this research as being harder to read inserting words like:
- KJV Princes= Modern versions= satraps
- KJV written= Modern versions= conscripted
People today are saying there are no real originals out there anymore. And many say that you cannot have a pure Word of God today.
Others are saying that you must read tons of materials to guide you to the right “interpretation” of God’s Word but the Bible tells us that the Word of the Lord are pure words as tried in a furnace of earth purified seven times that God will keep them from this generation for ever. It also says that all scripture is given by inspiration of God. And to claim that we have a faulty book, a messed up book, or a clumsy translation is as if saying Jesus was a clumsy person and is incapable of “keeping” his Words as he said one jot or tittle shall not fall. And that every word of God is pure clean, and righteous.
If we cannot trust that our Bibles are 100% accurate we have a religion filled with flaws of an unholy God. but that is not what we have. God is holy. He promised us we would have his Word. We must trust that His Word has been given to us in the way he has preserved it for us in the English language in the King James Bible.
