What the Bible Says About
The Bible Is God’s revelation to man about himself and his creation which otherwise could never be known. The original Bible scriptures were the Inspired, Inerrant, and Infallible
words of God. Therefore to be sure
that the Bible we read is the true Word of God, it must be the best translation
of the purist preserved scriptures.
Forty-four writers over a period of twenty centuries
produced a perfect harmony of doctrine in a progressive unfolding manner, the
unanswerable proof of the divine inspiration of the Bible.

all that the prophets have spoken:  Ought not Christ to have suffered these
things, and to enter into his glory?  And beginning at Moses and all the
prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning

honor to God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
b.) It must honor the
Person and Redemptive Work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
c.) It must uphold
faithfully every essential article of Christian Faith and Doctrine in all of
it’s parts, wholly and completely.
- Good Bible versions are good English translations
a.) Come from a
good tree; such as the Received Greek NT Text (Textus Receptus) which was an
accurate and preserved copy of the original scriptures, ”most faithful of
all copies of the original manuscripts”.
b.) Use good
translators; only Godly scholars who love the Holy Scriptures and whose one
commitment is to translate the text as faithfully as possible.
c.) Use a good
translation technique; such as the literal classical method called the
“Verbal Equivalence”, or “Word for Word” technique.
d.) Preserve every
essential doctrine of our Christian Faith; such as the Virgin Birth of
Christ, Deity of Christ, and Redemption by the blood of the Lamb.
e.) Produce good fruit;
such as the Authorized King James Version (1611) and all earlier protestant
printed versions (spanning about 475-years).
- Bad Bible versions are corrupt English
a.) Come from a
corrupt tree; such as the Westcott and Hort Greek NT (1881) which
used the corrupt source texts Vaticanus and Sinaiticus, “two of the worst
corruptions ever discovered”.
b.) Use corrupt
translators; unregenerate translators and revisers, enemies of God’s Word,
which have an agenda of their own to pervert the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
c.) Use corrupt
translation techniques; such as “Dynamic Equivalence”, subjective,
replaces God’s words with man’s thoughts, using “modern thought”
godless ideologies of Evolution, Rationalism, Liberalism, Higher Criticism,
Romanism, and Ecumenism.
Isaiah 55:8 For
my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the
d.) Attack vital
doctrines of the Christian Faith; The diety of Christ, the only salvation,
the virgin birth of Christ, the precious blood, and others.
e.) Produce evil fruit;
such as Westcott and Hort’s English Revised Version (1881), and all modern
versions “perversions” printed since then (110-years).
- The major printed English Bible versions
Tyndale (1525), Coverdale (1535), Matthew (1537), Great Bible
(1539), Geneva (1560), Authorized King James (1611), English Revised Version
(1881), followed by a hundred modern English versions of today.
a.) All printed English
versions previous to and including the Authorized King James Version used
the best manuscripts, the Masoretic Hebrew OT and the Received Greek NT (Textus
Receptus) source texts for their translations except the Douai/Rheims
version of 1609 which was translated from the corrupt Latin Vulgate.
b.) All versions after
the Authorized KJV, starting with the English Revised Version (1881) used
the corrupt Westcott and Hort Greek NT source text for their translations
and therefore are founded on a corrupt foundation to start with.
- Satan’s declaration against God’s Word from
the beginning was “Yea, hath God said?”
Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the
Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall
not eat of every tree of the garden?
- The Authorized Version must be replaced by
The Authorized version of the Bible (the purist and best English
translation, the KJV) must be replaced by doctored versions! That was the sentiment of the Romanist revisers.
By their evil genius of textual criticism Westcott and Hort overthrew
the traditional Received Text from its undisputed 1500-year supremacy, and
replaced it with their doctored Greek NT of 1881, which quickly became the
basis for all modern editions of the Greek New Testament in use today.
- A corrupt tree has brought forth a multitude of
The Westcott and Hort Greek New Testament, like a corrupt tree,
spawned a multitude of evil fruits including all modern English versions
beginning with the English Revised Version (1881). As a result of their work, the King James Bible suffered 36,000
changes in the English text, and nearly 6,000 in the Greek.
- Modern versions have produced much confusion
(Sowing doubt and fostering unbelief is still Satan’s subtle tactic)
“Which version?”, “Which
Bible is the Word of God?”, “Every
version is good”, “Your
choice is as good as mine”, “Any
version is welcome”. Vital
issues of eternal value are at stake!
- The master deceiver is using smoke screens
regarding modern versions
“Highly readable”, “Beautifully
language”, “Most exact”, “Most accurate”, “Balanced”, “Scholarly”, “Authentic”, “Trustworthy”.
- Corrupt Bible versions have paved the way for
end-time ecumenical faiths
The English Revised Version opened the floodgates and one hundred and
more years later have seen a hundred versions of all theological shades and
persuasions flood the market. This
multitude of corrupted versions paves the way for a multitude of faiths to
help form the end-time counterfeit “Kingdom of God”. The battle of the Bible versions can be seen as God’s Word versus
Satan’s Word, the King James Bible versus the corrupt modern versions, and
the Believing Church versus the Ecumenical Church. Very serious issues I’d say!
The following book has been helpful in the preparation of
- False prophets will bring forth “evil fruit”
Matthew 7:15-17 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but
inwardly they are ravening wolves.  Ye shall know them by their fruits.
Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?  Even so every good
tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil
fruit. (The evil fruit of the
perverted Westcott and Hort NT is about 100 different corrupt modern English
versions of the Bible on store shelves which promises to replace the true
Word of God in these last days.)
- Satan will try to substitute “another Jesus”
from “another gospel”
Jude 1:3 Beloved,
when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was
needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly
contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
2 Cor. 11:3-4 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through
his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is
in Christ.  For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have
not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received,
or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
(The Jesus of the good Bible of almost 400-years is being replaced by
“another Jesus” from “another gospel” of 100 different modern
English versions of today.)
- A “falling away” will take place before the
Lord returns for his own
2 Thes. 2:3-4 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come,
except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the
son of perdition;  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is
called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple
of God, shewing himself that he is God.
1 Tim. 4:1 Now
the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart
from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
(The “falling away” is in progress today, setting the stage for
- There will be little faith preceding the second
coming of the Lord
Luke 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the
Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (All modern English
Bible versions come from a corrupt tree and will have their impact in
stealing away the faith which comes from the true Word of God, the KJV being
- Lawlessness and disregard for
God’s ways will precede Jesus’ return
Matthew 24:37-39 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of
man be.  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating
and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe
entered into the ark,  And knew not until the flood came, and took them
all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.  Therefore be
ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
(Can His coming be afar off or, as it appears to me, very close at hand?)
