NIV Bible Beware

NIV Bible Heresy:

Buyer beware! The NIV Bible translation leaves out “begotten” that is in the Greek manuscripts. You find this blasphemous omission occurs in John 3:16, 3:18, 1:14 and 1:18—Jesus is no longer proclaimed as the “only BEGOTTEN Son of God.” Begotten is in the original Greek, but removed as so not to offend. Even the Hindu god worshipper, Gandhi, stated he could accept Jesus as God’s son, but not the only begotten Son of God. He stated Krishna is the only begotten son of God. I have researched Greek concordances. “Begotten” is never held in question. It was placed in the original manuscripts.

Dr. Virginia Mollenkott, a literary critic on the NIV translation is an open feminist lesbian/homosexual. Her name is listed in the translation information. In the Episcopal magazine, Witness (June 1991, pp. 20-23), she admits, “My homosexuality has always been a part of me…” The man appointed as the Chairman of the NIV Old Testament Translation Committee was Dr. Marten Woudstra, who was a homosexual, deceased 1990. The word “sodomite” was removed for the NIV. It is stated in Deut. 23:17, I Kings 14:24, 15:12, 22:46, II Kings 23:7. The NIV, in I Corinthians 6:9, states the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God. An accurate translation from the ancient Greek manuscripts will state “effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.”

Hundreds of words and phrases were removed from the Word of God by NIV translators. The “Godhead” in the NIV was completely removed from the Word of God. All the following words have been omitted from the NIV: Propitiation, regeneration, mercyseat, remission, Jehovah, immutable, omnipotent, Comforter, Messiah, infallible, et cetera. The word “sodomite” is completely gone, as are the words: fornication, carnal, effeminate, vanity, devils, Lucifer, damnation, brimstone, and the bottomless pit.

The NIV omitted thousands of words. It completely omitted “hell” from the Old Testament where it is stated 31 times and replaced it with “grave.” In the New Testament, it removed it 9 times.

According to Wikipedia.org, the New International Bible (NIV) printed by Zondervan is the most popular Bible version today. Zondervan Publishers does not reveal they are OWNED by Harper Collins, who also publishes The Satanic Bible and The Joy of Gay Sex.

The New International Version failed to use the name of God where it appears about 7,000 times in ancient Bible manuscripts. Edwin H. Palmer, Th.D., Executive Secretary for the NIV committee wrote: “Here is why we did not: You are right that Jehovah is a distinctive name for God and ideally we should have used it. But we put 2 1/4 million dollars into this translation and a sure way of throwing that down the drain is to translate, for example, Psalm 23 as, ‘Yahweh is my shepherd.’ Immediately, we would have translated for nothing. Nobody would have used it. Oh, maybe you and a handful [of] others. But a Christian has to be also wise and practical. We are the victims of 350 years of the King James tradition. It is far better to get two million to read it—that is how many have bought it to date—and to follow the King James, than to have two thousand buy it and have the correct translation of Yahweh. . . . It was a hard decision, and many of our translators agree with you.”

God says regarding such statements that His Word cannot be added to or subtracted from. We find the LORD stating this in various portions of Scripture. Biblical truth is not according to what man thinks or has experienced. The Word of God uncensored is the only truth. It never changes with time or culture. God never changes. Even if an angel from heaven preaches another gospel, that is contrary to the Word of God, he is not to be believed as he is cursed; Galatians 1:8.

We all must be cautious, as most new Bible versions are heretical. Many even remove “Holy” from the term “Holy Spirit.” this is done deliberately to teach people it can be any spirit. We live in very sad apostate days. Please check your versions carefully. Do you own any heretical versions that need to be placed in your round file?

Report by Mr. Michael Penfold

“It was during a series of research phone calls to Dr. Blair that I first confirmed the fact of Dr. Woudstra’s homosexuality. Blair and Dr. Woudstra were friends. Dr. Woudstra had been on the mailing list of Evangelicals Concerned, Inc. (a gay and lesbian organizationhttp://www.ecinc.org/ ) from its inception, and although he had no formal ties with ECI, on one of his many trips to New York he called in and had tea with Dr. Blair. Dr Blair told me that Dr. Woudstra shared the viewpoint of ECI that lifelong ‘loving monogamous relationships’ between gay men or women were acceptable to God. He believed that there was nothing in the Old Testament (his special area of technical expertise) that corresponded to ‘homosexual orientation’. The ‘sodomy’ of the OT simply involved temple rites and gang rape (Gen 19). Lesbian, Virginia Mollenkott, (who also worked on the NIV) and Dr Blair make very similar liberal statements regarding translation of the NIV. Dr. Blair clearly stated to me on the phone on 23rd September 1997 that Dr. Woudstra, a lifelong bachelor, was a homosexual. He intimated that other members of the NIV translation committee were also quietly supportive of ECI, but he was not able to tell me who they were (for obvious reasons). He later called them ‘bigger’ names than Dr. Woudstra.”

Bible Translation Facts—User Beware

The apostasy certainly is in the church as false translations are being accepted without question.  Believers need to use a reliable concordance that provides the root meanings of the Greek and Hebrew. Every translation needs to be set beside the original manuscripts to confirm accuracy.  At this website http://www.eliyah.com/lexicon.HTML  (I have this set as a shortcut on my desktop), you can research any Bible word and find the original word meanings using a King James Version Bible. Strong’s Concordance translated from this version. If you do not own a KJVB, you can pick one up cheap at a used bookstore. I have found most words in the New American Standard, NKJV and KJV to be accurate.  However, the English never truly captures the richness of the Greek and Hebrew so it is profitable to research various words when possible.  

The New Living Translation (NLT) is not of God—it being translated to deceive. No one should place this in hand for study. It should be viewed as heresy. This translation has even removed the designated gender from the original languages.Tyndale House created this translation to be totally genderless to please the apostate church.

Let’s view John 3:16 in this translation. The word “begotten” has been removed. It is in the original scripts:

http://www.eliyah.com/cgi-bin/strongs.cgi?file=greeklexicon&isindex=Begotten

In the Greek, “begotten” means “only born.”  The NLT is satanically heretical, drawing a false Christ—an antichrist. It removes the deity of Christ. It states Jesus is God’s “only son.” This is a translative lie. In Scripture, believers are called sons of God. There has to be this designation of “begotten” as is true to the original language. Jesus is the only begotten Son, being conceived by the Holy Spirit. This truth is also revealed in John 1:18, 1 John 3:18, 1 John 4:9.  Any so-called bible which removes the word “begotten” from John 3:16 becomes satanic heresyHere are a few of the other translations that eliminate “begotten:” The New International Version (NIV), The Book For Teens (TBFT), the New Believer’s Bible NBB), the Living Bible (LB). The most recent translations are apostate; yet, they are endorsed by so-called reputable believers.

 The Message Bible reroutes the order of the presented Greek and eliminates and adds language.  This bible, like the NLT, leaves out verses and rewrites the Bible to please everyone of every belief system. It is also homosexual, feminist and New Age friendly.

 

The Message—John 3:16:“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. (You see, this passage leaves out “everlasting” as well as “begotten.” This version also implies no one will be destroyed.  This can be construed, as no one will be cast into the lake of fire. Every true believer knows those who are not born again will suffer eternal damnation in the lake of fire. The chapter three passage also states everyone must be born by the wind of God.)  New American Standard Bible translates John 3:16 correctly:

 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.”

Corrupters are publishing many deceiving bibles to please all. One main reason being, the Bible has always possessed the position of being the number one top seller.  It puts money in the hands of publishers.  In order to reach the largest market base possible, translators trim and dilute the Scriptures to make them edible and ecumenical. God says His Word is “living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart;” Hebrews 4:12. This is why today’s compromising, entertainment-loving church desires friendly-user versions.  

God hates Bible corruption—Deuteronomy 4:2, “You shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall you diminish from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.”  The New Testament confirms this:  Christ stated in Matthew 5:18-19 that the smallest stroke or letter shall not pass away from the law until all is accomplished and the one who annuls one of these commandments and teaches them will be the least in the kingdom of heaven. Any person who adds to Revelation will receive the plagues of Revelation and he who subtracts will not partake of the tree of life; Revelation 22:18-19.

 A few mistranslated Texts of The Message Bible: 

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us…” (John 1:14 in NKJV) “The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood…” (John 1:14 in The Message) “I did not know Him; but that He should be revealed to Israel, therefore I came baptizing with water.” (John 1:31 in NKJV) “I knew nothing about who he was – only this: that my task has been to get Israel ready to recognize him as the God-Revealer. That is why I came here baptizing with water, giving you a good bath and scrubbing sins from your life so you can get a fresh start with God.” (John 1:31 in The Message)  “Oh! May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope!” (Romans 15:13)  “God of green hope” in not present in the original texts. It was deceitfully added as a lie to tickle the ears of the ecologically minded.

Genesis 6:8

MSG:  ‘Noah was a pleasure to the Lord.’
