MODERN BIBLE VERSIONS YOU CAN TRUST

Before we begin, please note the following:

 

Pastors and other ministers, above all else, must send a consistent message to their congregations and others regarding the nature of the Word of God.  The practical applications of this principle are the following:

 

While you may use modern versions in your preaching and teaching, you MUST:

 

·         Always read the King James Bible from the pulpit.

 

·         Always read the King James Bible first, from the pulpit.

 

·         Always state that the King James Bible is the standard, from the pulpit.

 

·        You may then read a TRUSTED modern version from the pulpit.

 

 

 

MODERN BIBLE VERSIONS YOU CANNOT TRUST

 

First, here is a partial list of modern Bible versions (15 versions in all) that you CANNOT trust, though some of their content is correct but you won’t know what that content is without comparing these “Bible versions” to the King James Bible:

 

15 DEFECTIVE BIBLE VERSIONS

 

·        American Standard Version

·        Amplified Bible

·        English Standard Version

·        Good News

·        Good News for Modern Man

·        New American Standard Version

·        New American Standard Version Update

·        New English

·        New International Version

·        New King James Version

·        New Revised Standard Version

·        New Revised Version

·        Revised Standard Version

·        Revised Version

·        Today's New International Version

 

The versions above, besides the simple fact that they do not agree with the King James Bible in numerous places and do not agree with the ancient Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek of the original languages Bible in numerous places, have the following deficiencies:

 

1.      The Defective Bible Versions (DBVs) listed above disagree in many places with the over 50,000 ancient Greek manuscripts that have resided for decades at the University of Chicago and to which translators, textual critics, and computer programmers of the L. F. Nexus and others have been privy over the past five years.  Thus, they do not reflect the most recent discoveries in NGBTC (Next-Generation Biblical Textual Criticism).  Note that NGBTC is, in part, a revival of the principles used by scholars before the King James Bible translators, by the King James Bible translators themselves, and by scholars since the King James Bible translators.

 

2.      The DBVs (Defective Bible Versions) have NOT stood up under extensive digital textual analysis by computers, virtual supercomputers, and (actual) supercomputers.  See our article “Sinister Bible Versions – Forty Years Of Digital Textual Analysis” (link not yet activated).

 

3.      The DBVs (Defective Bible Versions) promote a “Tower of Babel” in the Christian community, creating a torrent of confusion in the minds of many Christians regarding the true nature of the Bible both in the original languages and in the English tongue (see “Babel Bibles – The Confusion Documented” [link not yet activated]) and dividing Christian brother and sister against Christian brother and sister.

 

4.      Without exception, each of the publishers of the DBVs have tacked on a huge profit, which has gone into their pockets and not into ministering to the needs of others, especially the needs of suffering humanity.  See our article Modern Bible Version’ Publishers’ Sales Transactions, Expenditures, And Audits – The Hidden Greed” (link not yet activated).

In addition, they have the following advantages:

 

 

1.      The Effective Bible Versions (EBVs) listed above agree with the over 50,000 ancient Greek manuscripts that have resided for decades at the University of Chicago and to which translators, textual critics, and computer programmers of the L. F. Nexus and others have been privy over the past five years.  Thus, they reflect the most recent discoveries in NGBTC (Next-Generation Biblical Textual Criticism).  Note that NGBTC is, in part, a revival of the principles used by scholars before the King James Bible translators, by the King James Bible translators themselves, and by scholars since the King James Bible translators.

 

2.      The EBVs (Effective Bible Versions) have stood up under extensive digital textual analysis by computers, virtual supercomputers, and (actual) supercomputers.  See our article “Perfect Bible Versions – Forty Years Of Digital Textual Analysis” (link not yet activated).

 

3.      The EBVs (Effective Bible Versions) destroy the “Tower of Babel” in the Christian community, creating a “Noah-ic” flood of clarity in the minds of Christians regarding the true nature of the Bible both in the original languages and in the English tongue (see “Fall Of The Babel Bibles – Destroying The Confusion” [link not yet activated]) and uniting Christians everywhere.

 

4.      Without exception, as in everything they do, the publisher of the EBVs has NOT tacked on any profit that goes into their own pockets and has, is, and will continue to minister to the needs of others, especially the needs of suffering humanity.  See our article Effective Bible Version’ Publisher’s Sales Transactions, Expenditures, And Audits – The Hidden Generosity” (link not yet activated).
