A Word to the Reader:
"There is a sense in which the work of translating the bible is never finished. This very fact has prompted the committee to engage in an ongoing review [Talk about ensuring job security!] of the text of the NIV with the assistance of many other scholars. The chief goal of this review [Another review! In the span of less than 40 years they have produced one in 1973, 1978, 1984, 2010, and another coming up this year, if I am not mistaken!] has always been to bring the text of the NIV abreast of contemporary biblical scholarship and of shifts of English idiom and usage. Already in 1978 and again in 1984 various corrections and revisions to the NIV text were made. In the TNIV the committee offers to the reading public the latest fruits of its review." [And these are SCHOLARS??!!]
1973 - 1978 - 1984 - 2010 editions, and more coming soon, have no doubt!
The King James Bible celebrates its 400th Anniversary this year, and HAS NEVER HAD ANY TEXTUAL CHANGES!! NOT A ONE!!
There have been three "changes" to the KJV since 1611:
1. 1612: Typography (from Gothic to Roman type).
2. 1629 & 1638: Correction of typographical errors.
3. 1762 & 1769: Standardization of spelling.
The 'Board of Managers' of the in 1852 determined that "The English Bible as left by the translators has come down to us unaltered in respect to its text..."
"With the exception of typographical errors and changes required by the process of orthography [spelling] in the English language, the text of our present Bibles remains unchanged, and without variations from the original copy as left by the translators. (Report of the Committee on Versions to the Board of Managers of the American Bible Society, 1852, pp. 7,11 as cited by George T. Crabb)"
We all know that in the NIV Matthew 17:21 is omitted but found in the footnotes of the NIV, but,
in the TNIV Matthew 17:21 is nowhere to be found!!
There are many such altogether "missing" verses!
The TNIV goes on to state:
"Mark 16:9-20 and John 7:53, 8:11, although long accorded virtually equal status with the rest of the gospels in which they stand, have a very questionable-and confused-standing in the textual history of the NT as noted in the bracketed annotations in which they are set up.
"The Committee has again been reminded that every human effort is flawed-including this revision of the NIV. We trust, however, that many will find in it an improved representation of the word of God, through which they fear his call to faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and service in his kingdom." [Isn't that comforting to know: That the "bible" you hold in your hands is NOT FLAWLESS!! NOT THE INERRANT WORD OF GOD!! THEN WHY WOULD YOU USE IT?????????]
The word of God that I hold in my hands is FLAWLESS!!
and a light unto my path.
Psalm 119:105 (King James Bible)
IT IS TOTALLY INSPIRED, AND PRESERVED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT in the King James Bible! As it was promised by God!
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 (King James Bible)
For the LORD is good, his mercy is everlasting;
and his truth endureth to all generations.
Psalm 100:5 (King James Bible)
For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.
Psalm 119:89 (King James Bible)
and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it,
because the time is near.
The New Versions Are NOT Really New
In this video, I show proof that the most popular "new" Bible versions are actually just remakes of the Roman Catholic, Jesuit Douay Rheims version of 1610. You will also see one of the heads of the NIV translation team, lying and deceiving people into thinking that the new NIV is similar to the "original manuscripts" (which he has NEVER seen!) and that the newest NIV is an updated KJV. I will show proof that he is lying!

Here is a CLEAR mention of the TRINITY, found in the King James Bible:
For there are three that bear record in heaven,
the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost:
and these three are one.
1 John 5:7 (King James Bible)Out of curiosity, look for the same in whatever corrupt version you may own (with the exception of the NKJV in this instance!), and you will see that IT IS NOT THERE!!
Just how can churches which use the NIV and its innovations claim to have the INFALLIBLE, INERRANT WORD OF GOD??
If it were inerrant, it would not require constant corrections!
Thus, such a statement made by these churches IS FALSE!!
