To start off with, everyone knows that the NIV was corrupted by people seeking to erase the uniqueness and divinity of Jesus Christ in order to facility the merging of all religions into one which will be promulgated by the coming new world order. The NIV ‘translators’ (so-called) knowingly, and intentionally “removed 64,576 words as compared to the King James Bible!” as is stated on this website. http://www.jesusisprecious.org/bible/satanic_bible_versions.htm.
Also, we begin by accepting the reality that the KJV is the perfection of God’s word, furthermore that it is the only truly Authorized version, and that the Holy Spirit was at work in history to preserve God’s inerrant word through the work of these faithful translators to provide God’s own exact words in English once and for all in 1611. This is all in spite of the claims of unbelievers that over 100,000 changes have been made to the KJV over time. Those deceivers know full well that the vast majority of those so-called ‘changes’ were just an updating of the spelling of words from things like ‘shewn' to ‘shown’ and so do not really contain any substantive changes at all!
If you have not been exposed to any of these preceding arguments before, you may have had any number of reactions ranging from shock and disbelief, to frustration, or even to your head actually exploding. If you have cherished and grown up with the KJV all your life, I would be very surprised if you have not heard at least some of those arguments, and probably many more like them.
The problem is that practically all of those arguments about the KJV alone being God’s word in English are based on mixture of logical errors, misinformation, and ignorance. As a result the conclusions of these arguments about both the KJV and the NIV (along with other modern versions) are totally false.
Those of you reading this sentence should know that many of those who support ‘KJV onlyism’ have already stopped reading after that last sentence. If, you, however are willing to critically examine the question of Bible translations, read on.
I’m going to try and list a few of the most pertinent facts concerning Bible translations. I say a few because this topic is vast enough for a several hundred page book, which if you are interested in one, let me suggest a few: How we Got the Bible by Neil R. Lightfoot, The King James Only Controversy: Can You Trust Modern Translations? by scholar James White.
So, at the risk of oversimplifying the topic, here is a first round of Bible translation facts.
Now some facts concerning the Greek manuscripts from which we translate the New Testament.
