Changing the Bible

Revelation 22

18.  I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book

19.  and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book.

 

Who would want to change the Bible?

Why would they want to change the Bible?

For example: How about the Humanists and others of like mind?

The Humanist Manifesto 1 and 2 of 1933 and 1973

Humanist Manifesto Doctrine 13:  (1933)

   Religious humanism maintains that all associations and institutions exist for the fulfillment of human life.

 

   The intelligent evaluation, transformation, control, and direction of such associations and institutions with a view to the enhancement of human life is the purpose and program of humanism.

 

   Certainly religious institutions, their ritualistic forms, ecclesiastical methods, and communal activities must be reconstituted as rapidly as experience allows, in order to function effectively in the modern world.

   First notice that Humanism is a religion.   Notice the word 'control' in Doctrine thirteen. For clarification, we will rephrase sentences one and two. They said, "The control and direction of all associations is the purpose and program of humanism."

   They said the institutions to be controlled and directed include religious institutions. Religious institutions include Christian Churches, public and private schools, universities, seminaries, etc.. Put your thinking cap on, do you think Humanists should be involved in the 'control and direction' of Christian Churches, schools and seminaries? Wouldn't that be like putting the fox in charge of the hen house? Or appointing the wolf to the job of shepherd of the sheepfold?

   Reread the thirteenth doctrine of Humanism. Notice that Humanists use code words for Christianity and believe that they must 'reconstitute', 'reinterpret' and 'redefine' Christianity 'as rapidly as experience allows'. ("as fast as they can get away with it")

"Some humanists believe we should reinterpret traditional religions and reinvest them with meanings appropriate to the current situation. Such redefinitions, however, often perpetuate old dependencies and escapisms; they easily become obscurantist, impeding the free use of the intellect. We need, instead, radically new human purposes and goals." Humanist Manifesto 2 (1973)

Jude 1:3-5

3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.

4 For there are certain men (claiming humanist credentials) crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men (non-theists), turning (reinterpret, reinvest and reconstitute ) the grace of our God into lasciviousness, ('new morality') and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. (No deity will save us; we must save ourselves.)

5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.

   In the Humanist Manifesto 2  Christianity is referred to as 'traditional dogmatic or authoritarian religions'. Humanists believe that Christian beliefs are 'myths, dependencies and escapisms'.

   Here we find them saying, "humanists believe we should reinterpret traditional religions and reinvest them with meanings appropriate to the current situation."

   In Manifesto I, Doctrine Thirteen it was said, "(religious institutions) must be reconstituted as rapidly as experience allows." As rapidly as experience allows means, "As fast as we can get away with it."

   How is this Humanist reinterpreting, reinvestment and reconstituting of Christian Churches and institutions to be accomplished? The answer, in part, is in the preface where it is written. "Many within religious groups, believing in the future of humanism, now claim humanist credentials".

   Here we have the ungodly feeling that it is their duty to infiltrate, reinterpret, reinvest and reconstitute Christianity. How would they do this? In plain English, the Bible tells us in Jude 1.

The Old King James Version

Comments

John 1:1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god. (New World Translation) John 1:1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (KJV) In the King James Jesus is God whereas in the other Bible he is just a god.
2 Samuel 21:19 Then there was another battle with the Philistines at Gob; and Elhanan son of Jaare-oregim, the Bethlehemite, killed Goliath the Gittite, the shaft of whose spear was like a weaver's beam. Revised Standard Version (RSV) 2 Samuel 21:19. And there was again a battle in Gob with the Philistines, where Elhanan the son of Jaare-oregim, a Bethlehemite, slew the brother of Goliath the Gittite, the staff of whose spear was like a weaver's beam.  (KJV) Who killed Goliath, David or Elhanan?
2 Samuel 23:5 Is not my house like this with God? For he has made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things and secure. Will he not cause to prosper all my help and my desire? (RSV) 2 Samuel 23:5. Although my house be not so with God; yet he hath made with me an everlasting covenant, ordered in all things, and sure: for this is all my salvation, and all my desire, although he make it not to grow.  (KJV) Is "my house" with or not with God?
Hosea 11:12. and Judah is unruly against God, even against the faithful Holy One.  (NIV) Hosea 11:12.but Judah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with the saints.  (KJV) Which way is it? With or against?
Genesis 3:15. I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel. Douay Genesis 3:15. And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. KJV Protestants believe that 'his' is Jesus Christ. The Douay-Rheims translation is a Catholic Jesuit version. Here Mary (she -her) replaces Jesus (his)

Psalm 55:19. God shall hear, and bring them low, even he that has existed from eternity. Pause. For they suffer no reverse, and therefore they have not feared God. (Septuagint)

Sir Lancelot Brenton Translation. Originally published by Samuel Bagster & Sons, Ltd., London 1851

 

Psalm 55:19. God who existed before the ages will hear and afflict them. For there is no redemption in them. They indeed do not fear God. (Septuagint)

Charles Thomson Translation. Secretary of the Continental Congress of the U.S.A. 1774 -1789

Psalm 55:19. God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God. KJV

For some of those we call 'the  wicked' there is no redemption. But perhaps they do not want you to know that.

KJV. "no changes" They will not change.

The Wicked
8523 A. B

Matthew 5:44. But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, (RSV) Matthew 5:44. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;  (KJV) RSV wants us to pray for our persecutors.

Half of the RSV verse has been deleted.

RSV - missing Matthew 18:11. For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.  (KJV) Perhaps this verse is not important so THEY left it out. Perhaps they believe Jesus is not the only savior. Perhaps they believe we should save ourselves. Perhaps they believe we do not need Jesus?

"No deity will save us; we must save ourselves." Humanist Manifesto 2

Matthew 20:16. So the last will be first, and the first will be last." (RSV) Matthew 20:16. So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.  (KJV)  
Matthew 20:22.  "You don't know what you are asking." Jesus said unto them. "Can you drink the cup that I am going to drink?" "We can." They answered.

23  Jesus said to them, "You will indeed drink from my cup, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared by my Father." (RSV)

Matthew 20:22. But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? They say unto him, We are able.

23. And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.  (KJV)

Baptism comments are deleted from the RSV.
Matthew 25:13. Keep awake therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour. (RSV)

Matthew 25:13. Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour. (NIV)

Matthew 25:13. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.  (KJV)

 

 

The day or hour of what? It is not in the RSV or NIV.

 

 

Matthew 24:36. No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. (NIV) Matthew 24:36. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.  (KJV) "Nor the Son" has been added to the NIV

Jesus said, "I and the Father are one". This addition makes Jesus a liar. Also, that Jesus does not know when he will return.

Mark 2:17. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners." RSV

Mark 2:17. I have not come to call the righteous but sinners.

Mark 2:17.  I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.  (KJV) Perhaps they believe there is no need for repentance so they just delete two words.
Mark 6:11 If any place will not welcome you and they refuse to hear you, as you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet as a testimony against them." Mark 6:11. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust 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.  (KJV) Perhaps these words were deleted because they do not believe in a judgment.

Perhaps with San Francisco in mind, God has decided to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah?

Mark 10:21, ...and come, follow me. RSV

Mark 10:21, ...Then come, follow me. NIV

Mark 10:21, ...and come, follow me. ASV

Mark 10:21. ...and come, take up the cross, and follow me.  (KJV) "Take up the cross" deleted.

Perhaps since salvation is a free gift you need do nothing except watch TV.

When you become a Christian there is a change in life and a cross to bear.

Mark 10:24. Children, how hard is to enter into the kingdom of God! RSV)

Mark 10:24. How hard is it for the rich to enter the kingdom of God! (NIV)

Mark 10:24. ... Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!  (KJV) Which is it?

1. Hard for children to enter.
2. Hard for the rich to enter.
3. Hard for those who trust in riches to enter.

In 3 being rich is not the problem. Making an idol of money is the problem. Those who believe in the RSV (1) or NIV (2) might just be persuaded give all their money to the preacher.

Mark 13:14. But when you see the desolating sacrilege set up where it ought not to be (let the reader understand), then those in Judea must flee to the mountains; RSV Mark 13:14. But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:  (KJV) They don't like the prophecy of Daniel so they simply delete the reference.

How will you know when to flee if you don't understand Daniel?

Luke 2:14. "Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among men with whom he is pleased" RSV Luke 2:14. Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.  (KJV) One verse favors a few and the other all men. It is just a subtle change isn't it?
Luke 4:4. And Jesus answered him, "It is written, 'man shall not live by bread alone." RSV

Luke 4:4. Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man shall not live on bread alone. NIV

Luke 4:4. And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.  (KJV) Perhaps they don't think every word is important, so they just take out a few words here and a few there.
2 Timothy 3:16. Every scripture inspired of God and is also profitable for teaching. RSV 2 Timothy 3:16. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, ...  (KJV) Is it every or all? Is it just inspired scriptures that are profitable meaning that some scripture is not inspired? Is scripture for teaching or doctrine.

And who is going to tell you which scripture is inspired and which scripture you can safely ignore? The pastor of a 501c3 church perhaps?

A little change here and a little there.

Luke 9:55-56. But he turned and rebuked them. And they went on to another village. (RSV)

Luke 9:55-56. But Jesus turned and rebuked them and they went on to another village. (NIV)

Luke 9:55-56. But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. But he turned and rebuked them. 56.  For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village. (KJV) The other versions remove the rebuke. Perhaps a Humanist version of "Judge not"?
Acts 28:28 Let it be known to you then that this salvation of God has been sent to the Gentiles; they will listen."

29.

30. And he lived there two whole years at his own expense, and welcomed all who came to him, (RSV)

Acts 28:28 Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it.

29 And when he had said these words, the Jews departed, and had great reasoning among themselves.

30.  And Paul dwelt two whole years in his own hired house, and received all that came in unto him, (KJV)

Let's be one happy family. Verse 29 is controversy. In the RSV - gone. The Bible is divisive and that will not do with those waning a one world religion.

Does Revelation 22:19 apply here?

19.  and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book.

1 Corinthians 10:28. (But if some one says to you, "This has been offered in sacrifice," then out of consideration for the man who informed you, and for conscience' sake -- (RSV) 1 Corinthians 10:28.  But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof: (KJV) Who owns the Earth and therefore can tell us how to behave? KJV say Jesus owns the Earth.

Perhaps the RSV translators are playing Ms. Manners. Maybe they believe some one else owns the Earth -Satan?

Over time, verses showing Jesus' ownership of the Earth are systematically eliminated from the Bible.

Revelation 14:5  and in their mouth no lie was found, for they are spotless.  (RSV)

No lie is found in their mouths, they are blameless (NIV)

Revelation 14:5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God. KJV

 

Accountability before God is removed from NIV and RSV.
 Revelation 22:14. Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates. RSV

 Revelation 22:14. Blessed are they that wash their robes, that they may have the right [to come] to the tree of life, and my enter in by the gates into the city. ASV

 Revelation 22:14. “Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. NIV

 Revelation 22:14. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. KJV The RSV, ASV and NIV have replaced God's commandments with a soap commercial.
Luke 4:8. Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only NIV

Luke 4:8. And Jesus answered him, "It is written, `You shall worship the Lord your God, and him only shall you serve.'" RSV

Luke 4:8. And Jesus answering said to him: It is written: Thou shalt adore the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.  DOUAY

Luke 4:8. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. KJV Jesus rebuke of Satan is removed.
Acts 13:42.And as they went out, they desired them, that on the next sabbath, they would speak unto them these words. DOUAY

Acts 13:42. As they went out, the people begged that these things might be told them the next sabbath RSV

Acts 13:42. As Paul and Barnabas were leaving the synagogue, the people invited them to speak further about these things on the next Sabbath. NIV

Acts 13:42. And when the Jews were gone out of the synagogue, the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath. KJV Who left?

1. They. - Douay RSV
2. Paul and Barnabas - NIV
3. The Jews - KJV

Who wanted to meet the next Sabbath day?

1. They - Douay
2. The people. - RSV NIV
3. The Gentiles. - KJV

When did the Gentiles want to meet?

1. 1st day of the week, Sunday
 2. 7th day of the week, The Sabbath?

Acts 16:7.When they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them to. NIV

Acts 16:7.And when they had come opposite My'sia, they attempted to go into Bithyn'ia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them; RSV

Acts 16:7.And when they were come into Mysia, they attempted to go into Bythynia, and the Spirit of Jesus suffered them not. DOUAY

Acts 16:7. After they were come to Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia: but the Spirit suffered them not. KJV This subtle change implies that the Spirit is in control of Jesus.

Demon possession teaches that a possessing spirit controls a person rather than a person controlling himself.

Luke 7:33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil.

John 8:52.  Then said the Jews unto him, Now we know that thou hast a devil.

Are these translators implying that Jesus "hath a devil"?

1 Corinthians 5:7. Purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new paste, as you are unleavened. For Christ our pasch is sacrificed. DOUAY

1 Corinthians 5:7. Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Christ, our paschal lamb, has been sacrificed. RSV

1 Corinthians 5:7. Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. NIV

1 Corinthians 5:7. Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: KJV What is missing?
1 Peter 1:22. Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the hear NIV

1 Peter 1:22. Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere love of the brethren, love one another earnestly from the heart. RSV

1 Peter 1:22. Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: KJV Through the Spirit has been deleted.

RSV and NIV translators see no need for the help of the Spirit. Perhaps they think you can obey the truth all by yourself?

This is the power of God denied.

2 Timothy 4:1. I charge thee, before God and Jesus Christ, who shall judge the living and the dead, by his coming, and his kingdom: DOUAY

2 Timothy 4:1. I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: RSV

2 Timothy 4:1. In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: NIV

2 Timothy 4:1. I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; KJV It is just a little change.

At implies that Jesus will return. At means that the judgment will be at his return rather than at some indefinite time in the future.

By might mean that the judgment took place when he came and died on the cross.

Hebrews 7:21. But this with an oath, by him that said unto him: The Lord hath sworn, and he will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever.) DOUAY

Hebrews 7:21. but he became a priest with an oath when God said to him:  “The Lord has sworn  and will not change his mind: ‘You are a priest forever.’ NIV

Hebrews 7:21. Those who formerly became priests took their office without an oath, but this one was addressed with an oath, "The Lord has sworn
and will not change his mind, `Thou art a priest for ever.'" RSV

Hebrews 7:21. (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:) KJV What is missing? Only a Levite could be a priest. Jesus was of the Tribe of Judah, therefore the reasoning is that he could not be a priest.

However there was a higher order of priests, the order of Melchisedec.

Perhaps Douay, NIV and RSV want to deny Jesus priesthood.

On the other hand, some churches and even the Masons claim to have priests 'after the order of Melchisedec.

Does deleting these words make their priests of a higher order than Jesus?

John 5:39You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me,  NIV

John 5:39You search the scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness to me; RSV

John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. KJV

 

What is the difference? the NIV and RSV are observations whereas the KJV is a command.

Protestant reformers believed it was your Christian duty to search the scriptures. Catholics had priests to do it for them and tell them what the verse means.

The RSV and NIV versions are a step in the Catholic direction.

John 2:11. This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory; and his disciples believed in him. RSV

John 2:11. What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him. NIV

John 2:11. This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him. KJV

Jesus Miracles done away

The KJV uses the word miracles 32 times. The RSV 23 of these miracles have disappeared entirely. In the remaining verses the miracles have been weakened

Matthew 18:2 He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. 3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. NIV

Matthew 18:2 And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them,
[3] and said, "Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. RSV

Matthew 18:2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

3. And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. KJV

Doctrine of Conversion Undermined

"Unless you change" How?

"Unless you turn" Where?

Ephesians 3:9 and to make all men see what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things; RSV

Ephesians 3:9 and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things. NIV

 

Ephesians 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: KJV Jesus Christ is removed in the RSV and NIV.
Colossians 1:14. in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins RSV

Colossians 1:14. in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. NIV

Colossians 1:14. In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: KJV Blood atonement removed.
2 Thessalonians 2:2. not to be quickly shaken in mind or excited, either by spirit or by word, or by letter purporting to be from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come RSV

2 Thessalonians 2:2. not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by the teaching allegedly from us—whether by a prophecy or by word of mouth or by letter—asserting that the day of the Lord has already come. NIV

2 Thessalonians 2:2. That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. KJV Is it past (already come) present (has come) or future (at hand)?
Titus 2:13. awaiting our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, RSV

Titus 2:13.

Titus 2:13. Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; KJV By changing the adjective glorious to the noun glory removes the second coming.

It is the glory that comes rather than Jesus Christ.

Revelation 1:7. Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, every one who pierced him; and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen. RSV

Revelation 1:7. “Behold, he cometh with the clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they that pierced him; and all the tribes of the earth shall mourn over him. Even so, Amen. ASV

Revelation 1:7. Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. KJV

"Jesus is coming and boy is he mad."

Jesus coming in vengeance is changed to a feeling sorry for him.

Is it morn in penitent sorrow or morn in expectation of terrible vengeance?

 

Mark 7:19. because it goeth not into his heart, but into his belly, and goeth out into the draught? [This he said], making all meats clean. ASV

Mark 7:19. For it doesn’t go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body.” (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.) NIV

Mark 7:19. since it enters, not his heart but his stomach, and so passes on?" (Thus he declared all foods clean.) RSV

Mark 7:19. Because it entereth not into his heart, but into the belly, and goeth out into the draught, purging all meats? KJV In this verse words were added to the Bible so Christians could have bacon and eggs for breakfast and an Easter Ham dinner at church. Did Christ die on the cross to cleanse pigs of worms?

Luke 23:44-45 It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour, while the sun's light failed; and the curtain of the temple was torn in two RSV

Luke 23:44-45And darkness covered the whole land till three o'clock owing to an eclipse of the sun. Moffat

Luke 23:44-45And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. KJV Was the sun darkened or was there an eclipse? An eclipse only darkens a small area not the whole Earth.

The RSV and Moffat replace a miracle with an eclipse.

An eclipse does not last three hours.

1 Corinthians 7:5. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be by consent for a season, that ye may give yourselves unto prayer, and may be together again, that Satan tempt you not because of your incontinency. ASV

1 Corinthians 7:5. Do not refuse one another except perhaps by agreement for a season, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, lest Satan tempt you through lack of self-control. RSV

1 Corinthians 7:5. Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. NIV

1 Corinthians 7:5. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency KJV It is just one word. Does God care?

Revelation 2:19.  and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book.

John 9:4. We must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. ASV

John 9:4. We must work the works of him who sent me, while it is day; night comes, when no one can work. RSV

John 9:4. As long as it is day, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work. NIV

John 9:4. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. KJV

Just one little word

In the KJV Jesus is the only one who can do this work.

The ASV, RSV and NIV say we all can do it.

2 Timothy 4:1. I charge [thee] in the sight of God, and of Christ Jesus, who shall judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: ASV

2 Timothy 4:1. I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his appearing and his kingdom: RSV

2 Timothy 4:1. In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: NIV

2 Timothy 4:1. I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; KJV

Just one little word again

It it 'at' or 'by'?

Perhaps it is just 'in view of'?

This little change changes the doctrine of Jesus return.

James 5:16 Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man has great power in its effects. RSV

James 5:16Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. NIV

James 5:16Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. KJV This change puts the Catholic confessional into the RSV and NIV.
Hebrews 10:21. and since we have a great priest over the house of God, RSV

Hebrews 10:21. and since we have a great priest over the house of God, NIV

Hebrews 10:21. And having an high priest over the house of God; KJV This expression 'great priest, exalts the priesthood, Jesus just happens to be the greatest of many.

"An high priest" is only one.

This change allows a priesthood.

Acts15:23. With them they sent the following letter: The apostles and elders, your brothers, To the Gentile believers in Antioch, Syria and Cilicia:  NIV

Acts15:23. with the following letter: "The brethren, both the apostles and the elders, to the brethren who are of the Gentiles in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia, greeting RSV

Acts15:23. And they wrote letters by them after this manner; The apostles and elders and brethren send greeting unto the brethren which are of the Gentiles in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia: KJV

Church Government.
Separating the priesthood
from the laity.

KJV Apostles, elders and brethern

NIV & RSV Apostles, elders.

This little change established a priesthood (Apostles and Elders) separate from the brethren.

Revelation 13:8. and all who dwell on earth will worship it, every one whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb that was slain. RSV Revelation 13:8. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. KJV

Predestined losers?

In the KJV those who worship the beast are not named in the Lamb's book of life.

In the RSV names were written in the book of life BEFORE the foundation of the world.

1 Corinthians 15:4. that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scripture RSV ASV NIV 1 Corinthians 15:4. And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: KJV In the KJV Jesus did it himself. In other Bibles, he had help.

The RSV, ASV, NIV make Jesus somewhat less than God.

John 7:8-9.  Go to the feast yourselves; I am not going up to this feast, for my time has not yet fully come." [9] So saying, he remained in Galilee RSV John 7:8-9. Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come. 9.  When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee. KJV Jesus did go to the feast later. The RSV makes Jesus a liar.
Isaiah 7:14. Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, a young woman shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. RSV Isaiah 7:14. Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. KJV How could a young woman having a child be a sign? Any young woman could bear a child.
Psalms 45:6. Your divine throne endures for ever and ever. Your royal scepter is a scepter of equity; RSV Psalms 45:6. Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. KJV Hebrews 1:8. But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

Changing the wording in the Psalm can be used to deny that Hebrews 1:8 is a quote.

Daniel 3:25. He answered, "But I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt; and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods. RSV

Daniel 3:25. He said, "Look! I see four men loosed and walking about in the midst of the fire without harm, and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods! ASV

Daniel 3:25. He said, “Look! I see four men walking around in the fire, unbound and unharmed, and the fourth looks like a son of the gods.” NIV

Daniel 3:25. He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. KJV It is believed that Jesus is God in this verse. Therefore the RSV, NIV, and ASV  make Jesus somewhat less.
Micah 5:2. But you, O Bethlehem Eph'rathah, who are little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose origin is from of old,
from ancient days. RSV
Micah 5:2. But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. KJV Doesn't saying that Christ has an origin make him a created being?

The RSV would have you believe that Jesus is just very old rather than eternal.

Matthew 1:25. but knew her not until she had borne a son; and he called his name Jesus. RSV

Concerning Matthew 1:16 early editions of the RSV have a footnote stating that Joseph was the father of Jesus.

Joke

Jesus to Apostle: "Did you understand what I said?

Apostle: Yes but, then we read the footnotes in our study Bibles.

Matthew 1:25. And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS. KJV This removed the prophecy that Jesus would be born of a virgin.

Isaiah 7:14. Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

This change brings into question whether or not Jesus was Immanuel and that Jesus was a first born son.

Luke 2:33. And his father and his mother marveled at what was said about him; RSV

Luke 2:33. And his father and mother were wondering at those things which were spoken concerning him. DOUAY

Luke 2:33. The child’s father and mother marveled at what was said about him. NIV

Luke 2:33. And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him. KJV So Jesus no longer has a miraculous birth. And Joseph is Jesus father.

 

Matthew 13:51. Have ye understood all these things? They say to him: Yes. Douay

Matthew 13:51. "Have you understood all this?" They said to him, "Yes. RSV

Matthew 13:51. “Have you understood all these things?” Jesus asked.  “Yes,” they replied. NIV

Matthew 13:51. Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord. KJV Jesus is no longer Lord.

In the NIV "Jesus is Lord" is removed many times.

Matthew 19:16-17And behold, one came up to him, saying, "Teacher, what good deed must I do, to have eternal life?"

[17] And he said to him, "Why do you ask me about what is good? One there is who is good. If you would enter life, keep the commandments."

 

Matthew 19:16-17And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?

17.  And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. KJV

 

The master is made into a teacher.

In the KJV "Why callest me good is the same as calling Jesus God.

The RSV asks what is good rather than who is good. Goodness is not ascribed to the person.

The RSV "One there is who is good." does not identify Jesus the 'one' who is God.

Matthew 27:35. And when they had crucified him, they divided his garments among them by casting lots; RSV

Matthew 27:35. When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots. NIV

Matthew 27:35. And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots. KJV Why do modern translations do this? Is it to remove proof that Jesus fulfilled prophecy.
Mark 15:3. And the chief priests accused him of many things. RSV

Mark 15:3. The chief priests accused him of many things. NIV

Mark 15:3. And the chief priests accused him of many things. ASV

Mark 15:3. And the chief priests accused him of many things: but he answered nothing.

Mark 15:28 And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors. KJV

This was removed from Mark 15:3 because it was a fulfillment of prophecy.

Likewise Mark 15:28 has been completely removed from the RSV

Luke 4:4. And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

1 John 4:3. but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world. RSV

1 John 4:3. and every spirit which does not confess Jesus is not of God. This is the spirit of antichrist, of which you heard that it was coming, and now it is in the world already. NIV

1 John 4:3. 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, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. KJV Perhaps the NIV and RSV were written by those having the spirit if anti Christ as evidenced by their leaving this out.
Matthew 6:13. And lead us not into temptation. But deliver us from evil. Amen. Doury

Matthew 6:13. And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil. RSV

Matthew 6:13. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. NIV

Matthew 6:13. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen KJV Jesus is not to be exalted.
Matthew 27:34-36. There they offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall; but after tasting it, he refused to drink it. 35 When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots. 36 And sitting down, they kept watch over him there. NIV

Matthew 27:34. they offered him wine to drink, mingled with gall; but when he tasted it, he would not drink it. 35 And when they had crucified him, they divided his garments among them by casting lots; 36 then they sat down and kept watch over him there RSV

Matthew 27:34-36. They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
35. And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
36. And sitting down they watched him there; KJV
Again these antichrists do not want Jesus fulfilling prophecy thus proving he is the messiah so they delete these references.

Psalms 22:18. They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

Luke 11:2. And he said to them, "When you pray, say: "Father, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come.
[3] Give us each day our daily bread;
[4] and forgive us our sins, for we ourselves forgive every one who is indebted to us; and lead us not into temptation." RSV

Luke 11:2. He said to them, “When you pray, say: ‘Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come.
3.Give us each day our daily bread.
4. Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us.
And lead us not into temptation NIV

Luke 11:2. And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth.
3
.  Give us day by day our daily bread.
4
.  And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. KJV
In the NIV and RSV you can pray to the Pope as father. "Our holy father who art in Rome ...." How about that? But the Pope is not in heaven is he?

The religious title father is not allowed.

Matthew 23:9. And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

Why delete "deliver us from evil"? Humm.

Notice the word is indebted not sin.

A debt is something owed. Sin is violation of law.

Verse 40 is Missing in RSV Luke 24:40. And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet KJV  
Luke 24:51. While he blessed them, he parted from them, and was carried up into heaven.
[52] And they returned to Jerusalem with great joy,
[53] and were continually in the temple blessing God. RSV
Luke 24:50.  And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them.
51
.  And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.
52.
And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: KJV
No worship in the RSV.

Where was Jesus at this time?

In heaven. (Verse 51)

John 6:33. "For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world." NIV

John 6:33. For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven, and gives life to the world." RSV

John 6:33. For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. KJV That is a thing - bread. He is a person.

 Jesus is systematically removed from modern translations.

John 6:47. Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes has eternal life.RSV John 6:47. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. KJV Believes what? That a statue is god? That Santa comes on Christmas? Again Jesus is removed from a verse.
John 16:16. "A little while, and you will see me no more; again a little while, and you will see me." RSV

John 16:16. Jesus went on to say, “In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me.” NIV

John 16:16. A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father. KJV In the RSV and NIV Jesus plays hide and seek. Or perhaps he is doing a magic trick.

 

John 16:23. In that day you will ask nothing of me. Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father, he will give it to you in my name RSV

Give in my name.
 

John 16:23. And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. KJV

Ask in my name.

What is the difference? In the KJV the request is made in Jesus name.

In the RSV the Father gives in Jesus name but you do not need to ask in Jesus name.

Acts 2:30. Whereas therefore he was a prophet, and knew that God hath sworn to him with an oath, that of the fruit of his loins one should sit upon his throne. Douay

Acts 2:30. Being therefore a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that he would set one of his descendants upon his throne, RSV

Acts 2:30. Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; KJV "according to the flesh" is out because these antichrists deny that Jesus came in the flesh.

1 John 4:2. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
3. 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, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

Acts 8:36-38. And as they went along the road they came to some water, and the eunuch said, "See, here is water! What is to prevent my being baptized?"
37. (gone)
38. And he commanded the chariot to stop, and they both went down into the water, Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him. RSV
Acts 8:36-38. And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
37. 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.
38. And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him. KJV
In the RSV nothing keeps a person from being baptized.

In the KJV the person to be baptized does so because he believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

Again. Jesus is systematically removed from modern translations.

Acts 9:29. He spoke also to the Gentiles, and disputed with the Greeks; but they sought to kill him Douay

Acts 9:29. He talked and debated with the Hellenistic Jews, but they tried to kill him.

Acts 9:29. And he spake boldly in the name of the Lord Jesus, and disputed against the Grecians: but they went about to slay him. Again. Jesus is systematically removed from modern translations.
Romans 1:3. Concerning his Son, who was made to him of the seed of David, according to the flesh, Douay

Romans 1:3. the gospel concerning his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh RSV

Romans 1:3. regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life was a descendant of David, NIV

Romans 1:3. Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; KJV

Christmas, Xmas or Happy Holidays?

The movement to remove Christ, Christian symbols and The Ten Commandments from public places started long ago in the modern Bible translations.

Romans 14:10. Why do you pass judgment on your brother? Or you, why do you despise your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of God RSV Romans 14:10. But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. KJV Judgment seat of Christ renamed.
1 Corinthians 15:47. The first man was of the earth, earthly: the second man, from heaven, heavenly. Douay

1 Corinthians 15:47. The first man was from the earth, a man of dust; the second man is from heaven. RSV

1 Corinthians 15:47. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. KJV  
1 Timothy 3:16. Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of our religion: He was manifested in the flesh, vindicated in the Spirit, seen by angels,
preached among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory. RSV

1 Timothy 3:16. Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great:  He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory. NIV

1 Timothy 3:16. 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. KJV What is the difference. You and I are manifested in the flesh as are all other he and she's. In the KJV it is God who is manifested. Do you see the difference?
1 Peter 4:14. If you are reproached for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. NIV 1 Peter 4:14. If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. KJV

If ye be reproached

In fact, if you are one of the millions throughout the ages killed because you are a Christian you end up saved in heaven.

Revelation 6:9-10 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

10.  And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

Revelation 1:11. saying, "Write what you see in a book and send it to the seven churches, to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Per'gamum and to Thyati'ra and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to La-odice'a." RSV Revelation 1:11. Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. KJV  
Revelation 5:14. And the four living creatures said, "Amen!" and the elders fell down and worshiped. RSV

Revelation 5:14. The four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped. NIV

Revelation 5:14. And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever. KJV Worshiped who or what?
Matthew 17:21-18:11 - 23:14
Mark 7:16 - 9:44 - 9:46 - 11:26 - 15:28
Luke 6:48 - 17:16 - 23 -17
John 5:4
Acts 8:37 - 9:5-6 - 15:34 24:6-8 - 28:29
Romans 8:1 - 11:6 - 16:24
Gal 3:1
Verses found in the KJV but not in the NIV or RSV
1 Timothy 3:16. Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of our religion: He was manifested in the flesh, vindicated in the Spirit, seen by angels,
preached among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory. RSV

1 Timothy 3:16. Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great: He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit,[d]
was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory. NIV

1 Timothy 3:16. 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. KJV The KJV proves Jesus is God. The newer translations make him somewhat less.

The newer Protestant translations can not be trusted. The Catholics Bibles written to counter the Reformation such as the Douay can not be trusted.
