ARE YOU REALLY A CHRISTIAN?

Are you a Christian? Is this your attitude? My guess is 9 out of 10 “Christians” will scroll pass this not reading a word. If you are a Christian and you agree, please consider sharing.

Christian: “I love my Modern Translation Bible (NIV, ESV, NASV, NKJV, MEV, CEB, et. al. pick one)!!!”

Kevin: “Really, what do you love about it?”

Christian: “It’s modern English and so easy for me to read and understand.”

Kevin: “Yes, but it is missing over 250 whole key verses and there are thousands of verses tampered with and changed.”

Christian: “I know, but it is so easy to understand.”

Kevin: “Yes, but your Modern Trashlation is based on two fake manuscripts, the Codex Sinaiticus and the Codex Vaticanus.”

Christian: “I know, but I really like my bible and it is so easy to understand.”

Kevin: “Yes, but your Modern Trashlation denies that Jesus is God*.”

Christian: “I know but everybody in my church reads the NIV, ESV, NKJV, etc.”

Kevin: “Yes, but they pervert Jesus Christ into Satan.”

Christian: “I know, but my Pastor says that my Modern Translation is the best and most accurate – 4 out of 5 Pastors agree.”

Kevin: “Yes, but the Modern Trashlations pervert the Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Christian: “Duh, I know that, but my Modern Translation is so easy to understand.”

Kevin: “Yes, but the NIV & other Trashlations delete over 64,000 words; like, Jehovah…yup GONE! Mercyseat — nada…it’s GONE…Godhead…of course it’s gone…because the clear teaching of the Trinity is GONE…yup 1 John 5:7 either deleted or reduced to “These three witnesses”. Bible “terms” like remission, regeneration, impute, propitiation, new testament and many others all GONE. They do this despite God’s clear warning about removing anything from His Word.”

Christian: “Keviiiinn…I know. But I keep telling you it’s easier for me ok?”

Kevin: “Yes, I hear you but the Modern Trashlations have clear…CLEAR contradictions…for example. 2 Samuel 21:19 tells us some dude named Elhanan killed the giant Goliath. Hmmm…at the same time 1 Samuel 17:50 they claim David killed the giant Goliath. Which is what I believe. Check it out…what does your bible say? Check the ESV. By my count there are about 46 of 290+ English bibles that share in this contradiction. But wait…1 Chronicles 20:5 we read that Elhanan killed Lahmi the brother of Goliath. We have a DOUBLE CONTRADICTION.
Christian: “I know, but I just don’t like all of those archaic words and the thee’s and thous, who talks like that anyhow?”
Kevin: ” yes, there are archaic words in the King James Bible…no doubt. According to author David W Daniels (https://www.facebook.com/david.w.daniels) …there are about 600 words that the average 5th grader might not know. But all Modern Trashlations have archaic words….ALL OF THEM and some, more than the KJB. Here is an example:

2 Samuel 18:9NKJV: “…his head caught in the TEREBINTH; so he was left hanging between heaven and earth. And the mule which was under him went on.”

KJB: “…his head caught hold of the OAK, and he was taken up between the heaven and the earth; and the mule that was under him went away.”
The Thee’s & Thou’s … you are correct, nobody talks that way. But they sometimes add it to literature…including the KJB to INCREASE understanding. Here, let me show ye.”

If it begins with a ‘T’, as in THEE, THOU, THY, THINE…then that is SINGULAR. Every time. If it begins with a ‘Y’, as in Ye, You, Yours…then it is PLURAL. Every time! So now, take your Modern Trashlation and read John 3. Highlight in Yellow whenever Jesus is speaking to directly to the Pharisee (and secret Jesus follower) and highlight in Red whenever Jesus is speaking to us…to everybody).” Then do the same in the KJB knowing what I just explained about the thee’s and thou’s. Your Modern Trashlation will be BLANK…the KJB will be accurately highlighted in RED and YELLOW.”

Christian: “Kevin…I know, you have told me this all before [big sigh]…but I just don’t care!!!


Kevin… there it is. Sad, really sad. The reason they will not examine the truth…forget what the great guru Kevin says…but what does the evidence show? What does the Bible show? What does God say?
What can I do? It’s not my job to convince you of the truth…however, I will say this and leave it for you to think about…”If you do not care what God says…then how well do you know Him? Are you truly saved….I mean if you could care less what He says…how could you be?” It’s just a question.


Luke 6:46. “And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”


*Titus 1:16, Mark 8:38, 1 Timothy 3:16, Philippians 3:6, Luke 2:33 (Isaiah 7:14), Colossians 1:14, John 3:16

Modern Trashlations Rob Jesus of Worship: Matthew 8:2, 9:18, 15:25, 18:26, 20:20, Mark 5:6, 15:19 “worshipped him” is removed in the NIV & other Trashlations! Why doesn’t the Modern Trashlations want Jesus Christ to be worshipped? Hint: see Luke 4:7, Matthew 4:9.


Modern Trashlations Pervert Jesus Christ into Lucifer: Isaiah 14:14 reveals Satan’s grandest desire, “I will be like the most High.” And with a little subtil perversion – the NIV in Isaiah 14:12 grants Satan’s wish!

The Modern Trashlations pervert the deity of Jesus Christ! I TIMOTHY 3:16: The clearest verse in the Bible proclaiming that Jesus Christ was God. The King James Bible (KJB) reads, “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH. . .” The King James says, plainly, “GOD was manifest in the flesh”. The NIV reads, “HE appeared in a body”. The NIV “twists” “GOD” to “HE”. “HE appeared in a body”? So What?

Everyone has “appeared in a body”! “He” is a pronoun that refers to a noun or antecedent. There is no antecedent in the context! The statement does NOT make sense! The NIV & other Modern Trashlations subtilty (see Genesis 3:1) perverts I Timothy 3:16 into utter nonsense!

PHILIPPIANS 2:6: The KJB again, clearly declares the deity of Jesus Christ: “Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery TO BE EQUAL WITH GOD” The NIV reads, “Who, being in very nature God, DID NOT CONSIDER EQUALITY WITH GOD something to be grasped,”.

The Modern Trashlations again subtitly perverts the deity of Jesus Christ!


The Modern Trashlations pervert the virgin birth!
LUKE 2:33: The King James Bible reads, “And JOSEPH and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.” The NIV reads, “The CHILD’S FATHER and mother marveled at what was said about him.” The “CHILD’S FATHER”? Was Joseph Jesus’s father? Not if you believe the virgin birth! Not if you believe John 3:16, that Jesus Christ was the Son of God! A subtil, “perversion” of the virgin birth. See also Luke 2:43.

The Modern Trashlations pervert Jesus Christ into Lucifer!
Isaiah 14:14 reveals Satan’s grandest desire, “I will be like the most High.” And with a little subtil perversion – the NIV in Isaiah 14:12 grants Satan’s wish!

ISAIAH 14:12: The KJB reads, “How art thou fallen from heaven, O LUCIFER, son of the morning!. . .” The NIV PERversion reads, “How you have fallen from heaven, O MORNING STAR, son of the dawn. . .” The NIV change “Lucifer” to “MORNING STAR”. What’s your Modern Trashlation say?

BUT WAIT. . . I thought the Lord Jesus Christ was the MORNING STAR?
Doesn’t Revelation 22:16 say, “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”.

The NIV & other Modern Trashlations CLEARY AND BLATANTLY make LUCIFER — The Lord Jesus Christ! WHAT BLASPHEMY! WHAT PERVERSION! And Christians claim the NIV is a “better translation”!
ISAIAH 14:15: The King James Bible condemns Lucifer to hell: “Yet thou shalt be brought down to HELL . . .” The NIV does NOT condemn Lucifer to HELL! The NIV reads, “But you are brought down to the GRAVE. . .” We all go to the GRAVE! Why doesn’t the NIV want Satan in hell?
Perverts The Lord’s Prayer into The Devil’s Prayer!

LUKE 11:2-4: The KJB reads, “. . .Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. Give us day by day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil.” The NIV removes everything that refers to a Holy God in heaven -“WHICH ART IN HEAVEN. . . Thy will be done, AS IN HEAVEN, so in earth. . . but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.” Everything that distinguishes God from the Devil is REMOVED! “OUR FATHER” of the NIV is “NOT IN HEAVEN” and “DOES NOT DELIVER FROM EVIL!” I wonder who it could be? (hint: see John 8:44)

THE OPPOSITE BOYS & GIRLS MEANS IT’S DIFFERENT – You can trust just one Bible!

INSPIRED ~ INERRANT ~ PRESERVED

Do you truly think there is no difference in these bibles? I think most women would beg to differ. Bunch of Scripture twisting heretics. How many women truly would like to have a husband that dominates them…is your master?

And what does, “Lord it over you…” mean? I dunno, you got me.

The ESV is just the opposite (ummm…the opposite boys & girls means DIFFERENT)…Instead of her desire to her husband (KJB)…we have desire shall be CONTRARY TO her husband (ESV).

Only two things can be true. Either they are both wrong, although, other than desiring or not desiring your husband, I cannot think of a 3rd option…OR one of them is wrong.

The question then becomes WHICH ONE IS WRONG! Without a bunch of archeological evidence, etc. I can tell you that any bible that does not know who killed Goliath is a bible that cannot be trusted. See 1 Samuel 17:50, 2 Samuel 21:19 and 2 Chronicles 2:5 in both the ESV and the KJB.

Not only does the ESV get it wrong in 2 Samuel 21:19. It creates a double contradiction. I could list hundreds of such errors in the ESV and any/all of the Bibles printed after 1881. There exist no such error in the KJB. In fact, there isn’t a single error in the King James Bible.

Maybe ladies you would rather trust a bible that says you are not to desire your husband or maybe you should choose the ISV where your husband is commanded to DOMINATE you. But then the VOICE…that’s a good one…”but rather than a companion, He will be the dominant partner.

FRIENDS PLEASE WAKE UP! God Inspired His Word…and He preserved it…every Word…every jot and tittle…for you and I and it’s called the KING JAMES BIBLE!

COMPARE GENESIS 3:16

KJB:…and thy desire shall be TO THY husband, and he shall rule over thee.

ESV: “…Your desire shall be CONTRARY TO your husband, but he shall rule over you.”

ISV: “…since your TRUST (not desire?) is turning toward your husband, and he will DOMINATE you.”

TLB: “…your husband’s AFFECTIONS, and he shall be your MASTER.”

NET: “…You will want to CONTROL your husband, but he will DOMINATE you.”

TLV: “…Your desire will be toward your husband, yet HE MUST rule over you.”

VOICE: “…You will desire your husband; but rather than a companion, He will be the dominant partner.” (wow, let that sink in)

NWT (JWs bible): “…and your LONGING will be for your husband, and he will DOMINATE you.”

MSG: “…You’ll want to PLEASE your husband, but he’ll LORD IT over you.” (‘Lord it’ over you? What? Lol)

One more reason we can only trust the Bible.

Do not confuse our photographic facsimiles with small, cheap, “reprints” you may have seen. The popular Thomas Nelson or Hendrickson Publishers “1611 Edition” mass-marketed Bible, for example, is NOT a true facsimile (nor do they claim it is). It is a totally new type setting in a strange semi-modern Roman Style Type Face without the original woodcut decorative accents or beautiful Gothic Black-letter Style Typeface found in the original. Such reprints may maintain the ancient spellings, but they do not LOOK anything like an original 1611.

 If you are looking for a beautiful, affordable, authentic copy of the original 1611 King James Bible to use as a desk-reference or bookshelf-reference piece (like a dictionary)…then this is the Bible for you. Our 1611 facsimile makes the perfect Christmas Gift. You may even wish to purchase one of the gorgeous 1611 King James Bible for yourself and one for a Christmas gift. This Edition Facsimile Reproduction of the 1611 First Edition King James Bible measures approximately 11 inches tall by 8.75 inches wide by 3.5 inches thick, and weighs about 10 pounds. (So actually… it’s fairly large and heavy book).

 The binding is hardcover black imitation leather with gold stamping along the spine. Each page was computer-scanned from the original, and printed on heavy cream paper. In a much more manageable “medium-folio” size, rather than the original “giant pulpit folio” size, it remains otherwise an exact photographic duplicate of the very first press run of world’s most beloved book. Most people have never seen what the original King James Bible looks like, and having one in your home will provide you with a great conversation-piece, and an object of great beauty.

 The 1611 King James Bible was written more than four hundred years ago when the English language was different. The original 1611 A.D. text, written in Early Modern English, shows the language with its Latin influence. Spelling was in Jacobean style which was not entirely standardized, but could be read phonetically. The original typeface was in Gothic style. Although both the typestyle and the older language of the 1611 version may be considered difficult to read by some 21st Century English readers, the translators produced an accurate translation known for its beauty, cadence, and poetic feel.

JOHN 3:16 The 1611 original (with Gothic type)
 
For God so loued þ  world, that he gaue his only begotten Sonne:
that whosoeuer beleeueth in him, should not perish, but haue euerlasting life.
 
JOHN 3:16, a 1900-1970 Cambridge Edition of King James Bible (based on 1769 version)
 
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
 
English spelling differences in John 3:16

U = V (Example: loued = loved; gaue = gave)

y with ‘e’ above it was used as represent the ‘thorn’ character, which means ‘the’)
nn (Sonne = Son)

Other spelling differences

V = U (Example: vnto = unto | See John 1:11. As a variation of the same letter, ‘V’ was used at the beginning of a word and ‘U’ within. )

VV = W (Example: svvord = sword) [The V was called a ‘U’, this is why we still call a W a ‘double U’]

I = J (Example: Iesus = Jesus | See John 1:17)

Long “s” letters look similar to “f” letters (Notice the ‘Old Testament’ type example on the right)

The Modern “Translations” Based on the Corrupt Alexandrian Texts
(NLT, NIV, ESV, HCSB, ISV [Unique Son], NHEB, WEB, etc.)

For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

There are two problems here.

1) The so-called modern translations deny the deity (meaning He is not God) of Jesus Christ by removing the begotten.  There are many other places they deny His deity as well.
2) They promote us, man.  We no longer have everlasting life.  We have, eternal life, JUST LIKE GOD!
The WNT or Weymouth New Testament, the YLT or Young’s Literal Translation as well as several others take the corruption even further…in fact, in the opposite direction of the other Modern Versions as mentioned above.
WNT, “For so greatly did God love the world that He gave His only Son,
that every one who trusts in Him may not perish but may have the Life of Ages.”
The WNT:
1) Denies the deity of Jesus Christ.
2) Changes Everlasting to “Life of Ages
YLT, “for God did so love the world, that His Son —
the only begotten — He gave, that every one who is
believing in him may not perish, but may have life age-during.”
The YLT:
1) “May not.” That does not sound so definite.  WOW.  I hope I have everlasting life.
2) Changes Everlasting to “life age-during.”
Life of Ages?  life age-during?  To be honest, I am not even certain what that means.
There is so much more…please contact me if you are interested in learning more.  In the meantime, stick to God’s Word!  Stick to the KING JAMES VERSION!
