If Any Man Love Not the Lord Jesus Christ
If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha. 1st Corinthians 16:22
As I read 1st Corinthians 16:22 the other day, and pondered upon it's truth, a thought occurred to me--the NIV crowd doesn't love Jesus. How could anyone use a corrupt bible that diminishes Jesus, attacking His very deity???
The NIV Brutally Attacks Jesus' Deity
I recently received a letter from a man, who quoted me Philippians 2:6 from the New International Version NIV to claim that Jesus was not the manifestation of the Godhead. Here's Philippians 2:6 from the King James Bible, "Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God." Now here's the damnable NIV... "Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped." Do you see why so many people are being deceived by Satan nowadays? It is obvious to the faithful Christian who is awake to righteousness.
If I had my way, I would burn every New International Version of the Bible in existence! I would burn every copy of Today's New International Version as well. I would burn every copy of the corrupted New King James Version. In fact, I would burn every perverted Bible out there, including the Living Bible and Good News for Modern Man. I would burn the Revised Standard Version. God only wrote one book folks! Matthew 4:4 commands us to live by "every word" of the Bible. To do that we must have an "every word" Bible. We have it in the King James Bible which has been tested and proven trustworthy over the centuries.
Why in the world would any professed "Christian," who names the name of Jesus Christ, choose to use a so-called Bible translation that perverts His deity? Why would you want to use an NIV, knowing that Harper Collins (owners of Zondervan publishing) also publishes The Satanic Bible and The Joy of Gay Sex??? All the financial proceeds from the sale of NIV bibles goes to sell more Satanic Bibles and educate people how to enjoy homosexuality. Are you listening?
Furthermore, the NIV is copyrighted! The King James Bible is NOT copyrighted, because you cannot copyright God's Word.
Every mention of the word "worshipped" in the King James version concerning Christ has been obliterated in the NIV. Here's an example. Matthew 8:3 in the King James Bible reads, "And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean." The damnable NIV reads... "A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, "Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean." You can kneel before a king without worshipping him. Do you see the deception? The King James Bible correctly states that this leper WORSHIPPED Jesus, and only God is worthy of worship (Isaiah 42:8, "I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another...").
So what's wrong with the NIV? In a word... EVERYTHING! Do you have any idea how many things were eviscerated (disemboweled) from the Bible by the NIV authors? Hundreds of words, phrases, and even entire Bible verses were removed from the Word of God by the NIV butchers. Whereas the King James Bible mentions the "Godhead" three times, the NIV has completely removed the word.
You won't find the word "propitiation" in the NIV either. In fact, all of the following words have been removed from the Bible by the NIV butchers: regeneration, mercyseat, Calvary, remission, Jehovah, immutable, omnipotent, Comforter, Holy Ghost, Messiah, quickened, infallible, et cetera. One of the most blasphemous omissions in the NIV is in John 3:16 where Jesus is no longer proclaimed as the "only BEGOTTEN Son of God." Yes, that's right, the NIV butchers removed the word "begotten" from John 3:16. How in the name of truth and justice could any professed Christian who claims to love the Lord use the New International Version?
Yet, it's the most popular bible version sold on the market today. If I had a billion dollars, I'd make an offer to churches all across America. I'd exchange brand new King James Bibles for their perverted NIVs. I'd give them new Bibles for their old corrupt bibles. They would first have to give me their NIVs so I could BURN THEM! I'd burn every NIV I could find.
That's not all that the wicked NIV deceivers took out of the Bible. The word "sodomite" is completely gone, as is the words: fornication, trucebreakers, winebibbers, carnal, slothful, unthankful, effeminate, backbiting, vanity, lasciviousness, whoredom, devils, Lucifer, damnation, brimstone, and the bottomless pit. I'm not kidding, go check for yourself! All these words in the King James Bible have been stricken from the New International Version. We ought to call it the H.I.V., because it's more deadly than the AIDS virus.
2nd Timothy 2:15 instructs each believer to "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." Well, the NIV removes the word "study" from this verse. To no surprise, Paul's admonition against "science falsely so called" in 1st Timothy 6:20 is gone too, and there are no longer any fables to avoid. Of the 54 times "hell" is mentioned in the King James Bible, the NIV reduces it down to 14 times.
The King James Bible states in 1st Timothy 3:16 that "GOD WAS MANIFEST IN THE FLESH"; but the NIV waters it down to... he was revealed in a body. In Philippians 2:6 of the NIV Jesus is no longer EQUAL with God; but rather, could not grasp equality with God. The NIV is Wicked! Vile! Blasphemy!
Why Would Anyone who Claims to Love Jesus use the NIV?
I ask you, why? Why would anyone who claims to love the Lord Jesus Christ use, defend, and promote such a rotten and despicable translation as the New International Version? Yet, the NIV is bar far the most popular bible version being used in our churches today. The results have been devastating, as seen in the letter I received from the gentleman who doesn't believe in the Godhead because of Philippians 2:6 in the NIV.
1st Corinthians 16:22 is very clear, "If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha." Anathema means "cursed," and Maranatha means "the Lord is coming." Thus, Paul is saying ... If people don't want to receive the Truth of God's Word, which is Jesus Christ (John 1:1-2,14; 14:6; Revelation 19:13), then let them be cursed because the Lord is coming. The New International Version is a curse upon the world.
Has it cursed you? How many people sincerely don't believe in the Godhead because of Philippians 2:6 in the NIV???
It should not be surprising the the Church of Christ uses the NIV--they deny the Millennial reign of Christ, a literal Hell, a literal Heaven, the Rapture, the Tribulation, and they mandate works repentance and baptism for salvation. What a false religion!!! Don't be naive my friend, get you a King James Bible and study It, love It, and defend It.
If you truly love the Lord Jesus Christ, then honor Him by upholding the King James Bible. Say what you will--there's not a Bible on the market today that promotes, honors, and glorifies the Savior as does the precious King James Bible!!!
The King James Bible Defended!
