TABLES OF COMPARISON OF SELECTED SCRIPTURES AFFECTING FUNDAMENTAL DOCTRINES OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH
KING JAMES VERSION ENGLISH REVISED VERSION NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION NEW KING JAMES VERSION

The categories of tables were selected to represent the most significant areas of change in some of the modern translations which affect fundamental Christian doctrine. This listing is only a portion of the overwhelming number of alterations to essential doctrines in the NASB, NIV and other modern versions based on the Westcott-Hort Greek Text. 1. THE DEITY OF JESUS CHRIST "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men." (Philippians 2:5-7) Modifications to key verses such as this one and others containing titles of the Lord Jesus Christ denigrate the doctrine of His deity.
SCRIPTUR E I Timothy 3:16 Daniel 3:25 Acts 3:13, 26 Philippian s 2:6 KJV God the Son of God his Son Jesus thought it not robbery to be equal with God ERV He (margin note - God) son of the gods His Servant Jesus counted it not a prize to be on an equality with God NASB He a son of the gods His Servant Jesus did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped He a son of the gods his servant Jesus did not consider equality with God something to be grasped NIV NKJV God the Son of God his servant Jesus did not consider it robbery to be equal to God

2. THE INCARNATION "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." (I Timothy 3:16) New versions change "God" to "He" in this verse and omit other references to Jesus Christ coming in the flesh.

3. THE VIRGIN BIRTH "BEHOLD, A VIRGIN SHALL BE WITH CHILD, AND SHALL BRING FORTH A SON, AND THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME EMMANUEL, which being interpreted is, God with us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: and knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son; and he called his name JESUS." (Matthew 1:23-25) In the prophecy as it was originally given in Isaiah 7:14, the Revised Standard Version changes "virgin" to "young woman" and the NASB has "maiden" in a footnote. In 4

Matthew 1:25, new versions change "her firstborn son" to "birth to a son", casting doubt upon the virginity of Mary at Jesus’ birth. Other verses are changed to indicate that Jesus was born of an earthly father. These alterations deny the role of the Holy Spirit in the conception of Jesus Christ and, therefore, His divine nature.
SCRIPTURE Matthew 1:25 Luke 2:33 KJV her firstborn son Joseph and his mother Joseph and his mother ERV NASB NIV NKJV

brought forth birth to a a son Son his father and his mother his parents His father and mother His parents

birth to a son her firstborn Son The child’s father and mother his parents Joseph and His mother Joseph and His mother

Luke 2:43

4. THE SUBSTITUTIONARY ATONEMENT "Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins." (Colossians 1:13,14) New versions remove reference to the blood atonement in this and other verses. Words are also omitted or changed which show that the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ is the full atonement for our sins.
SCRIPTURE Colossians 1:14 Colossians 1:24 KJV through his blood that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ ERV omitted that which is lacking of the afflictions of Christ is for you (margin note) omitted God’s own possession NASB omitted that which is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for you (marginal note) omitted God’s own possession NIV omitted what is still lacking in regard to Christ’s afflictions for you NKJV through His blood what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ broken for you

5. THE RESURRECTION "Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene...After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country . . .Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen." (Mark 16:9,12,14) New versions isolate Mark 16:9-20 with the misleading disclaimer that it is not contained in the earliest manuscripts. They also question almost every appearance of Jesus after his resurrection, causing doubts concerning His bodily resurrection and deity.

6. THE ASCENSION "So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God." (Mark 16:11) The ascension proves that Jesus Christ is now in heaven. Almost every mention of the ascension is omitted in some new versions.

7. THE TRINITY "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one." (I John 5:7) This is the famous Trinitarian proof text which F.J.A. Hort hoped to remove from the New Greek Text. (see Life and Letters of Fenton John Anthony Hort) It is missing from the Westcott-Hort New Greek New Testament Text, the English Revised Version and most modern translations.
SCRIPTURE I John 5:7 KJV RV NASB omitted (marginal disclaimer) NIV omitted (footnote) NKJV for there are three who bear Witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit and these three are one.

8. JUSTIFICATION BY FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST ALONE "And Philip said, ‘If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God." (Acts 8:37) New versions omit this verse and alter others to change justification by faith to salvation through works. Many versions delete "by himself" in Hebrews 1:3 to permit faith in another mediator, such as Mary. The omission of "on me" in John 6:47 allows any belief.
SCRIPTURE Acts 8:37 KJV ERV NASB omitted (marginal note) NIV omitted (footnote) NKJV "If you believe with all your heart, you may." And he answered and said, "I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God." but if it is of works, it is no longer grace: otherwise work is no longer work.

9. INERRANCY OF SCRIPTURE

"The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever." (Psalm 12:6, 7) In this important verse, new versions change "them" referring to the Scriptures to "us" referring to people. Other alterations and omissions diminish the authority of Scripture and discourage confidence in its divine inspiration and preservation.
SCRIPTURE Luke 4:4 KJV but by every word of God The words of the LORD are pure words...T hou shalt keep them, O LORD. Thou shalt preserve them from this generatio n for ever. doctrine of Christ corrupt the word RV omitted NASB omitted NIV omitted NKJV but by every word of God

Psalm 12:6, 7

The words of the Lord are pure words...Tho u, O Lord, wilt keep them; Thou wilt preserve him from this generation forever.

And the words of the Lord are flawless...O Lord you will keep us safe and protect us from such people forever.

10. MASCULINE DEITY "He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. (John 12:44,45) New versions frequently change masculine words referring to God to the neuter "One". False religions of this world often identify their god as "the One". The new "Politically Correct" bible calls God, "Father-Mother", and Christ, "the human one." (41)
SCRIPTURE John 7:18 Colossians 3:10 John 6:69 Revelation 1:18 John 12:45, 15:21 Matthew 13:37 KJV his glory RV the glory of him NASB the glory of the one to the image of the One the Holy One NIV the honor of the one the image of its Creator the Holy One NKJV the glory of the One the image of Him Christ, the Son He who lives Him who sent Me He who sows

the Living one the living One the Living One him that sent the One who me sent Me he that soweth the one who sows the One who sent me The one who sowed

11. SATAN "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning, how thou art cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations." (Isaiah 14:12) "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." (Revelation 22:16) In the only passage of Scripture which describes Lucifer’s iniquity and fall into hell, most new versions omit the name Lucifer and confuse his identity with Jesus Christ.
SCRIPTURE KJV RV NASB NIV NKJV

12. MAN "What is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. (Psalm 8:4,5) New versions exalt man to being "a little lower than God" and omit many references to his fallen spiritual condition. Cults, the New Age and false religions also raise mankind to the level of being divine or in the process of evolving into gods. (42) SCRIPTUR E Psalm 8:5 KJV the angels RV God (marginal note angels) NASB God NIV NKJV

New versions frequently delete words such as "righteousness", "holy", "perfect" and other requirements of the sanctified life. As a result, the gospel is brought into reproach by worldliness and corruption in the church.

14. PRAYER "After this manner therefore pray ye..." (Matthew 6:9) New versions remove 21 words from The Lord’s Prayer in Luke 11 and words of instruction on prayer in other passages.

15. THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST "This same Jesus which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven." (Acts 1:11) Important references to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ to establish His reign upon earth are often omitted in the new versions. The New Age Movement, cults and apostate religions believe that "the Christ" is already on the earth and will soon be revealed. (43) SCRIPTUR KJV RV 15 NASB NIV NKJV

"Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief; when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in his hand." (Isaiah 53:10) New versions change "sin" to "guilt" in this important verse, thus relieving man of his accountability and placing the blame on God. Rewording of I John 5:19 blames the devil for sin, as did Eve. Modern psychology in the church reflects this propensity to transfer responsibility for sin rather than to repent. New versions alter many verses pertaining to sin in order to present it in less relevant, personal and severe terms.

17. THE JUDGMENT "And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust from under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the Day of Judgment, than for that city." (Mark 6:11) References to a final Day of Judgment are often missing in new versions. New Age prophets teach that, since God is love, He does not judge anyone. Belief in a literal hell and fear of God’s judgment are both foolishness and an offense to modern man.
SCRIPTURE Daniel 7:10 Matthew 5:21 Mark 6:11 Luke 17:36 KJV judgment in danger of the judgment the day of judgment Two shall be in the field, the one shall be taken and the other left.

God will take away from him his share in the tree of life.

18. HELL "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God." (Psalm 9:17) New versions change "shall be turned into hell" to "return to the grave" or "Sheol". In similar verses, "the depths" or "the realm of death" is substituted. Descriptions of the everlasting torment of souls in hell are eliminated or softened. SCRIPTURE KJV RV NASB NIV NKJV the wicked shall be turned into hell lowest hell sheol

19. THE GOSPEL "I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: which is not another; But there be some that trouble you and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed." (Galatians 1:6-8)

SCRIPTURE CHANGES IN MODERN VERSIONS WHICH AFFECT THE INTERPRETATION OF BIBLE PROPHECY Who will soon come to establish His Millennial Kingdom? The NASB and NIV remove references to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Matthew 24:24 says:

23

"There shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect." Many shall come in Jesus’ name, claiming that they will establish the kingdom of God preceding or in the place of Jesus Christ.
SCRIPTURE Matthew 6:13 KJV for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen the Son of man cometh and art to come glorious appearing Thy will be done as in heaven, so on earth NASB Parenthetical marginal disclaimer NIV Footnote NKJV for Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Matthew 25:13 Revelation 11:17 Titus 2:13 Luke 11:2b

Omitted Omitted appearing of the glory Omitted

Omitted Omitted Glorious appearing omitted (footnote)

Son of man is coming and who is to come glorious appearing Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

What will happen just prior to Jesus Christ’s return? II Thessalonians 2:3-12 foretells that many will fall away from or deny the true faith, "the truth" (v. 10) that God became man in Jesus Christ. They will worship a counterfeit Christ who is Satan incarnate, while under a strong delusion that mankind is being transformed into gods. New version terms "rebellion," "lawlessness" and "destruction" may be applied to those who oppose this antichrist system.
SCRIPTURE KJV NASB the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction NIV the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction NKJV unless the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition.

II Thessalonians there come a 2:3 falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition

24

How are we to prepare for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ? Jesus gives his disciples instructions to "watch and pray," as He did Peter, "that ye enter not into temptation." Those who do not heed this warning will fall away and will be not counted worthy to escape the judgment that is coming upon all those who dwell on the earth.
SCRIPTURE Mark 13:33 Luke 21:36 KJV watch and pray pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things NASB keep on the alert praying in order that you may have strength to escape all these things NIV be on guard, be alert pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen NKJV watch and pray pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things

How will the Antichrist be recognized? The spirit of antichrist does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh, but believes that Christ comes as the "universal consciousness" of the divine spirit within each person. The Antichrist exalts himself above God and will exterminate many through an artifice of "peacemaking," be a practitioner of witchcraft or "the Craft" (Freemasonry) and will worship "the force" of pagan religions.
SCRIPTURE I John 4:3 KJV And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist he shall cause craft to prosper...and by peace shall destroy many NASB and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; and this is the spirit of antichrist NIV but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist NKJV and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the antichrist he shall cause deceit to prosper...he shall destroy many in their prosperity

Daniel 8:25

He will cause deceit to succeed by his influence . . . destroy many while they are at ease

He will cause deceit to prosper... When they feel secure, he will destroy many

25

Daniel 11:38

shall he honour he will honor a the God of god of forces fortresses

he will honor a god of fortresses

he shall honor a god of fortresses

What is the mark, the name and the number of the Beast? The NASB and NIV do not clearly differentiate between the mark, the name and the number of the Beast. Please refer to the Watch Unto Prayer report on The Six-Pointed Star: The Mark of the Beast for evidence that the Beast is the Assyrian-Babylonian god, Saturn, whom the apostate Israelites worshipped as the Star of Remphan (Acts 7:37-43).
SCRIPTUR E Revelation 13:17 KJV the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name NASB the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name NIV the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name NKJV the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

Should people receive the name of the Beast? God will seal His servants’ foreheads during the Tribulation. New versions add "his name and" to this prophecy, leading the unwary to take the name of the beast or antichrist before receiving the Lamb’s Father’s name. All who take "his name" are condemned. (14:9, 10)
SCRIPTUR E Revelation 14:1 KJV NASB NIV His name and his father's name written on their foreheads NKJV His father's name written on their foreheads

His father's His name and name written in his father's their foreheads name written on their foreheads

What is MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT? Mystery Babylon is both a city and a religious system. New versions change the punctuation of Revelation 17:9,10 to confuse the identity of the “city of seven hills,” which is Rome. Revelation 14:8 and 17:18 are references to “that” great city mentioned in 17:9. In 17:5, the NASB transfers the key word “Mystery” from the literal name on her 26

forehead to a descriptive phrase declaring the name “a mystery,” or knowledge not revealed to man. This changes the interpretation by removing its association with the mystery religion of ancient Babylon from which Roman Catholicism derives.
SCRIPTURE Revelation 17:9,10 KJV The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings. Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city the woman which thou sawest is that great city upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH NASB The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits, and they are seven kings NIV The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. They are also seven kings NKJV The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. There are also seven kings

Revelation 14:8 Revelation 17:18

Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great the woman whom you saw is the great city upon her forehead a name was written, a mystery, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH

Fallen, fallen is Babylon the Great The woman you saw is the great city this title was written on her forehead: MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH

Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city the woman whom you saw is that great city on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY BABYLON, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH

Believers Beware of Counterfeit King James Bibles
By Nic Kizziah King James Bible believers are faced with an array of problems to day. Of course we all know that the multiplicity of all the new modern versions are a big problem but another big problem is the fact that many of the worldly publishing companies are publishing Bibles and calling them King James Bibles when in actuality they are not. They are counterfeits. Because the King James Bible is in the publick domain and not copyrighted, these worldly publishing companies think they can make minor changes to the standard text so that they can please certain groups which translates into extra sales for them. That's the way the modern world operates to day. All the common ordinary Bible believer wants is the same Bible that his grandmother had and the same Bible her grandmother had and the same Bible her grandmother had etc. that's all. Just give us the text that has established itself as the standard text of the Holy Bible, an old fashioned, Christ exalting, devil kicking, Authorized King James Bible. To the best of my understanding this is the 1769 edition of the 1611 King James Bible with a few minor printing errors and spellings corrected along the way in the 1800's. Until the twenty-first century you could get a copy of it in any nickel and dime book store. To day you can still find it but you must proceed with caution. You will be hard pressed to find it at all in any typical Christian book store without some alterations to the text. The Bible of our forefathers which we received through process of time comes with three specific warning labels. One is near the front. The other is near the middle and the last one is at the very end. Let's read them: WARNING LABEL # 1 - Deuteronomy 4:2 28

2

Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. WARNING LABEL # 2 - Proverbs 30:5-6
5

Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar.

6

WARNING LABEL # 3 - Revelation 22:18-19
18

For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 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. I would like to think these worldly publishing companies are just ignorant to the seriousness of what they are doing. However in some cases I'm sure that these deceptive maneuvers are being done with fore thought. In other words they are aware of the warning labels but choose to ignore them. They have hardened their hearts against the standard text of the Holy Bible. Let me give you an example of what I'm talking about. It was approximately six months ago I purchased a King James Bible from a popular on line book store. It was a straight text (advertised as the standard text) meaning it had no notes, no references, no helps, and no maps. It was just what I wanted. Just give me the Bible and if I need help with a difficult passage I'll ask the Holy Spirit for guidance and I'll check other scriptures for references. Don't get me wrong. I'm not against some of the commentaries and other Bible study tools. In fact I consider some of them a necessity, for example a good dictionary. It's just that commentaries, dictionaries, concordances and the like are the words of men and not the words of God. They are not infallible. Therefore I do not believe they should be mixed together under the same cover and be called the word of God. In actuality it is the word of God plus the words of a man or a group of men. In my opinion the Holy Bible should be just the word of God only from cover to cover. That is why I prefer a straight text. At any rate I had bought the Bible I thought I wanted. It had been published by Cambridge. They have always been the giant in the industry. In fact they are the oldest Printer and Publisher in the world. They are supposed to be the gold standard for dependability according to many King James Bible believers. This Bible had a nice black French Morocco leather cover with golden coloured gilt edges. It was very nice on the outside but when I started checking out the inside I was shocked. This particular edition of the Cambridge Bible that calls itself a King James Bible is not genuine. IT'S A COUNTERFEIT! It's not the Bible of my forefathers! Here are some of the changes I located: Asswaged has been changed to assuaged. Basons has been changed to basins. Chesnut has been changed to chestnut. Cloke has been changed to cloak. Enquire has been changed to inquire. Further has been changed to farther. Jubile has

29

been changed to jubilee. Intreat has been changed to entreat. Morter has been changed to mortar. Ought has been changed to aught, and rereward has been changed to rearward. Brother Nic, why get so upset? These are just minor changes in spelling. Well maybe they are, but have you never read "a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?" You see I believe God wrote the Bible through sinful men. I believe God copied the Bible through sinful men. I believe God translated the Bible through sinful men, and I believe God edited (purified) the Bible through sinful men. So therefore I believe God gave us the exact words in the exact order He wanted us to have them in. If that's the case then He spelled the words exactly the way He wanted to spell them, and gave them to us in a pure language, and that language is the standard text of the King James Bible. This is the Bible that has stood the test of time without any editing whatsoever and this is the Bible The Believers organization, with God's help, intends to preserve for all future generations. Beside all this, Cambridge has also taken the liberty of making doctrinal changes. Notice the following: The capital S in the word Spirit has been changed to a lower case s in numerous passages. The capital S refers to the Holy Spirit, the third member of the Godhead, whereas the lower case s in the word spirit could have multiple definitions such as simply referring to a mood or emotion. Its primary definition means to breath. All living self moving creatures have a spirit within them. So many definitions could apply to the word spirit when it is not capitalized. To change the capital S in the word Spirit to a lower case s is an attack against the Godhead, the most powerful threefold cord in heaven and earth: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Cambridge has made this critical error in the following places: Genesis 1:2, 41:38, Judges 3:10, 6:34, 11:29, 13:25, 14:6, 14:19, 15:14, 1 Samuel 10:6, 10:10, 11:6, 16:13, 16:14, 19:20, 19:23, 2 Samuel 23:2, 1 Kings 18:12, 22:24, 2 Kings 2:16, 2 Chronicles 15:1, 18:23, 20:14, 24:20, Job 33:4, Isaiah 40:13, 48:16, 61:1, 63:10, 11, 14, Ezekiel 11:5, 24. For hundreds of years Cambridge published these verses with a capital S, but now in the twenty-first century it has been changed. Actually this so called standard text edition first hit the market in 1993 and is being endorsed by many King James Bible believing websites to day. I assume that they are not aware that it has been modernized. Here is another change that has been made in this particular edition: the word twoedged has become two-edged. They added a hyphen. This word is only in the King James Bible four times (Psalms 149:6, Proverbs 5:4, Hebrews 4:12, and Revelation 1:16.) Now check this out: they added the hyphen in only three of the four verses. They left it without a hyphen in Hebrews 4:12. Why? Was this a mistake or did they mean to do it that way? Why tamper with it in the first place? Don't say you were trying to help us Cambridge. If that's the case then please don't try to help us any more. All we want you to do is to publish the same standard text of the King James Bible as you have done so very well for hundreds of years. Don't publish something that is not the standard and call it the standard. Once you modernize spelling, change capital letters to lower case letters and add hyphens, you are changing the standard text in order to please modern society. Here are some other ploys that some of these other worldly publishing companies are pulling on an unaware publick. One thing a lot of them do is change the spelling of words that end with the letters o-u-r to the more modern American spelling of o-r. For example armour becomes armor. Behaviour becomes behavior. Clamour becomes clamor. Colour becomes color. Endeavour 30

becomes endeavor. Favour becomes favor. Honour becomes honor. Labour becomes labor. Neighbour becomes neighbor. Odour becomes odor. Rigour becomes rigor. Rumour becomes rumor. Valour becomes valor and vapour becomes vapor. Well Brother Nic what's wrong with that? Remember what we said about the warning labels? Remember what the scripture said about a little leaven leaventh the whole lump? Now the very worst of this battle of o-u-r vs. o-r comes when dealing with the only begotten Son of God, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The modern day counterfeiters have changed Saviour to Savior. They have given us a six-letter Savior in place of a seven-letter Saviour. In Bible numerics seven is the number of completeness, purity, and spiritual perfection. On the other hand six is the number of man which is earthly not heavenly. Every one has heard of 666. It has a bad connotation and is not highly esteemed in Bible numerics. The seven-letter Saviour is the only begotten Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ. The six-letter Savior is the son of perdition, the anti christ. He wants to be like the most High (Isaiah 14:14,) but not in a good way, but in an evil way. He is not a follower. He's a counterfeiter. Therefore his final destination is the lake of fire. The new versions, along with the new age movement, and some of the King James Bible counterfeits are preparing the way for this six-letter so called Savior. That's the way he will spell his name, S-a-v-i-o-r not S-a-v-i-o-u-r. No thank you Satan. I'm sticking with the seven-letter Saviour as portrayed in the old black Book that I inherited from my forefathers. There are many other things going on by the worldly publishing companies. Almost all of them have hardened their hearts against the standard text of the Holy Bible. They do not believe God actually had His hand upon it much less wrote it. They treat it as a product of men. That is why they do not hesitate to publish all the different new versions. Nor do they hesitate to change the old King James and still call it the King James. If a person can't see the fingerprints of God upon this Book then he is either clouded in the cabassis or he is as lost as a duck in the desert with his head in the sand! The rules of English grammar may change but the King James Bible is fixed in a moment of time (the 1800's, the 1900's and for ever more) and is unchangeable. This is the standard text and there is no other. This is the Book that spread the gospel of Jesus Christ all over the world. This is the Book my grandmother had and her grandmother had and her grandmother had without any alterations (editing) whatsoever. It is basically the same Book that rolled off the printing press in 1611. The only differences being it was changed from Gothic type to Roman type, printer's errors were corrected and spelling was stabilized. The King James Bible is a very old Book. Now consider this: the scriptures have been translated into over 1,200 languages. Of all these over 800 languages had it translated straight from the Elizabethan English of the King James Bible. Not from the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek. Not from the Latin, not from the German, but straight from the Authorized King James. Now some of these people have learned English as a second language. They are not familiar with these modern Americanized spellings nor are most of the other English speaking people of the world. Can you see what God has woven together through process of time? The Holy Bible is from above and is a finished book from God. It is written in a pure language. Furthermore this language is very peculiar and has been used and still is being used in a very unique way. Let's preserve it as we received it and quit trying to change it! 31
