Help! I'm Confused, I Have 21 Different Bibles!

By David J. Stewart

       It is utterly ridiculous to believe even for one second, that God is behind the modern CONFUSION over which Bible is correct.  We read in 1st Corinthians 14:33... "God is not the author of confusion..."  People are woefully confused concerning the Word of God these days. 

The truth is that God promised to PRESERVE His Word unto all generations (Psalm 12:6,7).  Jesus said in Matthew 4:4... "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God."  If I am to live by EVERY WORD of God, then I need an "every word" Bible.  In comparison to the King James Bible, the New International Version removes or changes 64,576 words.  Despite God's clear warning about "taking away" from His Words (Deuteronomy 4:2) - the NIV removes 64,576 words!  Revelation 22:19 WARNS... And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.  The NIV TAKES AWAY 8 percent of God's word!!!  Clearly, there is an incontrovertible disagreement between the NIV and the King James Bible.  Which Bible is accurate? 

If you COMPARE the numerous Bible versions available on the market today, you'll quickly discover that the King James Bible stands alone in a category all by itself.  All of the modern Bible versions share the SAME corruptions.  For example: Just about every corrupted Bible on the market today changes or completely removes 1st John 5:7; but the King James Bible leaves it alone (as God tells us to)...

"For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one." -1st John 5:7

Another Scripture commonly perverted in 1str Timothy 3:16...

"And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."

The NIV diminishes 1st Timothy 3:16 down to the meaningless...

"He was revealed in a body."

Commonly perverted Scriptures are John 3:16 (the word "begotten"), Isaiah 7:14 (a "virgin"), and Matthew 8:2 (a leper "worships" Jesus).  Modern Bibles remove the word "begotten" from John 3:16, which makes the verse a lie, because God has many sons according to 1st John 3:2; but, Jesus is the ONLY "begotten" Son of God.  Isaiah 7:14 in the Moffatt's Bible changes the word "virgin" to "young woman," thus denying the Virgin Birth of the Savior.  This is a common corruption is modern Bibles.  The NIV removes every mention of someone "worshipping" Jesus, and diminishes it down to a mere "knelt," such as in Matthew 8:2.  Only God is worthy to receive worship (Isaiah 42:8), which Jesus wholeheartedly received from people because He was the Godhead incarnate (John 1:1-3,14; 10:33; Colossians 2:9). 

All modern Bibles completely remove the word "Godhead" from Acts 17:29, Romans 1:20, and Colossians 2:9.  The word "Trinity" may not appear in the Bible to describe God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit; but the word "Godhead" sure is, that is, If you have an accurate Bible like the precious King James!  You don't need to remain confused about which Bible to use.  Ask yourself... "Which Bible upholds the Godhead, Christ's virgin birth, Christ's deity, Hellfire, and other fundamental doctrines of the Bible?  Only the King James!!!

I actually had a man write to me, upset that someone was trying to convince him that Jesus was the manifestation of the Father.  He quoted Philippians 2:6 to me from the apostate NIV concerning Jesus Christ...

Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped."

In sharp contrast, do you know what the King James Bible says in Philippians 2:6?  It says...

"Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God."

Whoa!  What a difference!  I wrote the man back and kindly explained to him that he had been blinded by the Devil, and was reading from a tainted Bible, laced with Satanic poison.  I showed him irrefutable proof from 1st Timothy 3:16 that Jesus was IN FACT the manifestation of the Godhead in the flesh...

"And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."

There you have it!  Jesus Christ was God MANIFEST in the flesh of a man.  Do you see why it is so vitally important that you have the correct Bible?  I plead with you to study the King James Bible from an honest heart, and you will find that it is truly God's inerrant, inspired, preserved Word.  But you say, doesn't the King James Bible have mistakes in it?  The King James Bible is often criticized, for things that today's scholars feel could have been translated BETTER, but that certainly doesn't constitute errors.  One must keep in mind that 54 scholarly men were commissioned by King James to the work of refining the English Bible, to make a good translation better...

"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)

The King James Bible was given to us by an omnipotent and sovereign God.  There is no confusion if you love Jesus Christ, and the DOCTRINE OF CHRIST...

"Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son." -2nd John 1:9
