The Bible Controversy

The Bible controversy has caused
great division in the Body of Christ, and it has to be
resolved if God's people are ever going to walk in unity. We cannot agree to
disagree any longer, and we must be on the same page otherwise the Devil will
continue to lead innocent people astray.
God's Word has been
under attack from the very beginning, and Satan has been systematically
undermining the "true" Gospel of Jesus Christ by mixing truth with lies, in order to mislead the
unsuspecting. Considering the Times that we are living in, the stakes are so much higher for those
who are Walking With the Enemy, and headed in the
If you truly love the Truth, please read this with
a heart to understand. If you have pride in your heart,
please try to set
it aside. If you are a scholar, or "learned man," please listen from
your heart, and don't let your "knowledge" get in the way.
If you are a skeptic, please give me the benefit of the doubt. And if you
are a man who will not listen to a woman, please don't let "self"
righteousness keep you from the Truth.
You really have nothing to lose
by reading this, and everything to gain if you find out that I Am correct in
my assessment of this dire situation that I believe to be one of the major
causes of error in the churches.
The debates have been going on for
a long time now, but it has only been in the last few years that I became
aware of the major conflicts, particularly the battles raging over the "King
James Only," position.
The Wicked One has had to be very slow and
calculated in his evil plan, because the Devil knows if he moves too fast, or
becomes real obvious, he may alert his victims to the danger, and scare his prey
Innocent people are adversely
affected due to the lack of knowledge, error, and confusion surrounding this
very controversial subject, and the Word of God has been so watered down, and in
some cases it is not even recognizable in certain "Bible versions!"
"love of money" is a major impetus for producing some translations, and one
enticement to get people to
buy them, is they are supposedly easier to read since they are written in
Satan's primary reasons for subverting God's Holy Word is to steal from
the unwise and unwary, kill the innocent, and ultimately destroy the souls of those who will "blindly" follow him
to Hell. So, this is an extremely serious matter that
should not be taken lightly!
as foretold long ago in the
Holy Scriptures is coming to pass right before our very eyes, and people NEED TO
SEE that the
unholy, irreverent, and unbiblical state of so many
a direct result of this
"falling away" from the Truth
of God's Word.
The key to understanding the
differences between the Bible versions involves
the method of translation, and which manuscripts were used; and I Am convinced
"tainted manuscripts," used by
translators, and "learned men," are responsible for the subtle
deceptions of the earlier translations, and the blatant lies of some current
The Greek manuscripts that were
used for the King James Version Bible, a.k.a.
the "Authorized Version,"
are referred to as the "Received Texts," and
considering the KJV can be traced back to the original texts, albeit
copies, shows the great credibility of the word
for word translation method used by the KJV translators; rather than the
dynamic equivalent method used for most "modern" Bibles,
whereby they have attempted to "convey the thought expressed," even "at the expense of literalness."
The Codex Vaticanus,
and Codex Sinaiticus,
are the manuscripts that the promoters and publishers of the modern versions
refer to as the "oldest," "earliest," and "most reliable,"
which I believe is pure fallacy!
The "Codex Sinaiticus,"
was discovered by Constantin von Tischendorf, in 1844, at
Saint Catherine's monastery--a Greek Orthodox "Christian" community located near the foot of Mount Sinai, in Egypt.
Apparently, the owners of the "manuscripts" did not realize their
due to the fact that they were in a waste basket ready to be burned.
Tischendorf's testimony of his "Discovery of the Sinaitic Manuscript"
he said, "I
knew that I held in my
hand the most precious Biblical treasure in existence--a document whose age and
importance exceeded that of all the manuscripts which I had ever examined during
twenty years' study of the subject."
Mr. Tischendorf was not initially
take with him "the pearl of all my researches," as he liked to call those rare manuscripts that
were destined for the flames, except for some 43 pages of the Old Testament. But during his third journey to
Saint Catherine's monastery at Mount Sinai, he wrote the following
regarding his visit there on 4 February 1859: "...he [the steward] took
down from the corner of the room a bulky kind of volume, wrapped up in a red
cloth, and laid it before me. I unrolled the cover, and discovered, to my great
surprise, not only those very fragments which, fifteen years before, I had taken
out of the basket, but also other parts of the Old Testament, the New Testament
complete, and, in addition, the Epistle of Barnabas and a part of the Pastor of Hermas."
The next day, Tischendorf requested
to take the manuscripts to Cairo so he could transcribe them, but due to the
absence of the Prior, the steward would not grant permission. Tischendorf's
persistence paid off, and on 24 February 1859 he was able to say: "the priceless
treasure was again in my hands," and he was permitted to take the manuscripts.
As for the "Codex Vaticanus,"
they just appeared
in the 1475 catalogue at the Vatican Library which was founded by Pope Nicholas V in 1448.
[Currently they have a message displayed at their website that says: "The Vatican Library will be closed for three
years from July 14, 2007 for important renovations."]
Reportedly, the origin of the "Codex
Vaticanus" is uncertain, but due to some similarities between the
Vaticanus and the Sinaiticus it is believed that they were initially together in some ancient library.
These previously hidden
manuscripts were used by Westcott and Hort, "notable scholars" from the late
1800's, who were among the team of "experts" and "learned men"
involved in the translation work of the
"English Revised Version,"
published in 1881, which was "regarded as the forerunner of the entire modern
There is much more I could say
about these two men who are directly responsible for the "tainting" of the Holy
Scriptures, but based on the evidence it is obvious that they had little regard
for the Word of God, especially considering that Mark 16:9-20, which is the very
essence of the Gospel of the LORD Jesus Christ, is missing from these two
"ancient" manuscripts that under-lie most of the modern
So please prayerfully consider this
key passage from the Gospel of Mark that has been diminished, defiled, or
deleted all together depending on the particular English translation in
question. And only God knows what has been done to the many "non-English"
versions of the Bible.
"Now when Jesus was risen early
the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of
whom He had cast seven devils.
And she went and told them
that had been with Him, as they mourned and wept. And they, when they had heard that He
was alive, and had been seen of her, believed not.
After that He appeared in another
form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country. And they went and told it unto
the residue: neither believed they them.
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.
And He said unto them, Go ye into all
the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized
shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
And these signs shall follow them
that believe; In My Name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new
tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if
they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the
sick, and they shall recover.
So then after the LORD had spoken
unto them, He was received up into Heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
And they went forth, and preached every where, the LORD working with them,
and confirming the Word with signs following. Amen."
I have listed several English
versions of the Bible to demonstrate how their publishers handled the end of
Mark, and it
is important to note that these
versions do not necessarily delete this vital passage, but use footnotes to cast
doubt upon the very foundation of true Christianity.
This is by no means an exhaustive list of
the many different Bible versions that have been published to date. And
one way to know if your favorite Bible is from "tainted manuscripts,"
just go to
Matthew 5:22, and if the phrase "without a cause," has been deleted in
regard to being angry with your brother, you can be certain it was compared with
the "Codex Vaticanus," and "Codex Sinaiticus." For the purposes of this article
an asterisk (*) signifies that "without a cause," was omitted from that
translation, and a dollar sign ($) signifies a footnote was used.]

The Gospel of Mark ends at this point in some witnesses…, including
two of the most respected

mss lacked the verses, while others mark the text with asterisks or obeli (symbols that scribes used to indicate that the portion of text being
copied was spurious). Internal evidence strongly suggests the secondary
nature of both the short and the long endings. Their vocabulary and style are
All of this
evidence strongly suggests that as time went on scribes added the longer
ending, either for the richness of its material or because of the abruptness
of the ending at v. 8. (Indeed, the strange variety of dissimilar endings
attests to the probability that early copyists had a copy of Mark that ended at
v. 8, and they filled out the text with what seemed to be an appropriate
conclusion. All of the witnesses for alternative endings to vv. 9-20 thus
indirectly confirm the Gospel as ending at v. 8.) Because of such problems
regarding the authenticity of these alternative endings, 16:8 is usually
regarded as the last verse of the Gospel of Mark.
Double brackets have been placed around this passage to indicate that most
likely it was not part of the original text of the Gospel of Mark. In spite
of this, the passage has an important role in the history of the transmission of
the text, so it has been included in the translation."]
Baird Wallace served as the senior New
Testament editor for this "New English Translation" (NET), and considering statements published at
also the views endorsed at their Bible Forum, it is
apparent Mr. Wallace and his partners favor the Roman Catholic Church.
From the NET website: "The
editors and translators of the NET Bible desire to make the NET Bible useful to
Christians in all traditions..." [Emphasis is mine. C. Read]
The editors specifically mention the Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox Churches―who
happen to be the sole providers of the "Vaticanus" and the "Sinaiticus" their two "most respected manuscripts."
I just question why would a
faithful scholar, educator, or minister hold these "tainted manuscripts" in
such high esteem, when it is so obvious they were tampered with, as evidenced
by the missing "Mark" passage?!
To suggest that
a scribe would take it upon himself to "add to" or "take away" from the word of God, is
just outrageous! And if they really believe Mark 16:9-20 is so spurious, why
even include it in their "NET?"
These verses from Mark 16:9-20 definitively validates
that Jesus Christ,
"is come in the flesh," and those who
try to cast doubt upon this crucial passage are denying the central doctrine of
the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
They say that the
Codex Vaticanus just appeared in the
Vatican Library catalogue one day, and that it was found in a pristine unused condition;
but by boasting that it is one of the "earliest manuscripts" only
helps to confirm
that the Devil started tainting the Holy Scriptures very early
For that matter, Satan was attempting to destroy "true
faith" in Jesus Christ while the Apostles were still on this earth, and
no doubt he will continue his evil deeds until the Day he is cast into the Lake
Acts 20:27-30 "For
I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. Take heed
therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost
hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which He hath purchased with
His own blood.
For I know this, that after
my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away
disciples after them."
II John 1:7-11 "For many
deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is
a deceiver and an anti-Christ. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things
which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the
doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he
hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this
doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he
that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds."
The Apostle John was an eyewitness
to the "work"
of the LORD Jesus, and it is important to note that Saul/Paul
first met the LORD after Jesus had resumed His place at the right hand of God.
subsequently became a very zealous
defender of the Gospel and pronounced a very serious admonition against anyone who would teach "another gospel."
Galatians 1:6-9 "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. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other
gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed."
Catholic Church preaches "another gospel," but when I left that Church
in the late 1980's, I really did not know the truth about the
Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church, and it has only been in the last few
years that I have begun to
understand that their teachings do not abide "in the
doctrine of Christ."
"The first new universal catechism of the Catholic church since the
Council of Trent was released in French in 1992 and English in 1994;"
and prior to that it was not a public document.
edition, which is considered to be the "authoritative version," was introduced
on 9 September 1997 by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, who is now the current Bishop
of Rome, a.k.a. Pope Benedict XVI.

year of Pope Benedict XVI's Pontificate, which commenced on 19 April 2005, after the death of
Pope John Paul II, he

"Compendium of the Catechism of the
Catholic Church," which are
the teachings and
beliefs of the Roman Catholic Church that employs a question-and-answer format.
Based on those Roman Catholic
publications, it seems that the "church" is no longer trying to hide their
views, and considering that Protestant churches have embraced the Catholic
Church, even after their true intentions have been made public, is further proof
of the "Apostasy."
Moreover, this supposed openness
of the Roman Catholic Church does not take away from the fact that the policy's
that they promote does indeed under gird the great effort to keep God's
people in the Dark.
The hierarchy of the Roman
Church tried to stop the Word of God from being translated into English,
but when that was unsuccessful,
they sanctioned the arrest and murder of those who were responsible, and they eventually came against those who
even owned a Bible.
After the Roman Catholic leadership succumbed
to the fact that they could not stop
the overspreading of the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Devil devised a
plan to corrupt the original manuscripts through the Codex Vaticanus and
Codex Sinaiticus, quite successfully I might add.
The evil seeds initially planted in the first
"modern versions" of the Bible were not as plainly seen, but
the translations today show such blatant disrespect for God's Word, and
obviously all "fear of God" is gone!
Romans 3:13-18 "Their throat is an open
sepulcher; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is
under their lips: Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:
Their feet are swift to shed blood:
Destruction and misery are in their ways: And the way of peace have they
not known: There is no fear of God before their eyes."
One "modern translation" that is
particularly unsettling to me is entitled, "Good As New: A Radical Retelling of
the Scriptures." [© 2004.] This book was endorsed by the
Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, who is the senior bishop and
principal leader of the Church of England, as well as the symbolic head of the
worldwide Anglican Communion. And it is beyond me how they can call that
book a translation of the Bible!
Not only is it "gender neutral,"
whereby they have selectively changed references to gender, but they had the
audacity to delete entire books such as 1 & 2 Timothy, Titus, 2 Peter, 2 & 3 John,
Jude, and Revelation!
Undoubtedly, the Church of England,
has fallen away from "the faith which was once delivered unto the saints," and
it is so ironic that the head of this religious Body, which initially published
the King James Bible, is now promulgating a "new gospel" recreated in man's
There is coming a Great and
Dreadful Day when all evil

And I say, Woe unto those who had a hand in leading God's people
Romans 1:18-25 "For

One "version" that is
even more dangerous than the one promoted by the Head of the Church of England,
and is more widely accepted by so many religious leaders within the "Church

Warren's "Purpose Driven Life," and various other authors who openly
support or endorse Peterson's
Eugene Peterson's "bible" has caused
great harm to unsuspecting souls, and his "translation" is a complete departure
away from the Truth of God's Word! Compare what Peterson
said about Mark 16:9-20.
Peterson's paraphrase of Mark 16:9-20
"9[After rising from the dead, Jesus
appeared early on Sunday morning to Mary Magdalene, whom he had delivered from
seven demons. 10She went to his
former companions, now weeping and carrying on, and told them.
11When they heard her report that she
had seen him alive and well, they didn't believe her.
12Later he appeared, but in a
different form, to two of them out walking in the countryside.
13They went back and told the rest,
but they weren't believed either.
14Still later, as the Eleven were
eating supper, he appeared and took them to task most severely for their
stubborn unbelief, refusing to believe those who had seen him raised up.
15Then he said, "Go into the world.
Go everywhere and announce the Message of God's good news to one and all.
16Whoever believes and is baptized is
saved; whoever refuses to believe is damned.
17These are some of the signs that
will accompany believers: They will throw out demons in my name, they will speak
in new tongues, 18they will take
snakes in their hands, they will drink poison and not be hurt, they will lay
hands on the sick and make them well.
19Then the Master Jesus,
briefing them, was taken up to heaven, and he sat down beside God in the place
20And the disciples went
everywhere preaching, the Master working right with them, validating the Message
with indisputable evidence.]"
Notice how Mr. Peterson
has replaced the "Gospel" with his "Message," something of
which he has done throughout his
book. Satan has been corrupting God's Word from the
very beginning, and men and women, just keep falling for his lies and deceptions.
"The Truth about The Message" is a more detailed
account of why I Am opposed to this modern perversion of God's Word, and
considering how many people directly, and indirectly, approve of it, is reason
Rick Warren, senior pastor of "Saddleback,"
a Mega-Church in California, quotes extensively from "The Message," of
Eugene H. Peterson, and has made it an essential part of his book, along with
many other "versions."
However, consider Mr. Rick Warren's
opinion of the King James Version:
"The Purpose Driven Life:" (Appendix 3): "This book contains nearly a thousand quotations from Scripture. I have
intentionally varied the Bible translations used for two important reasons.
First, no matter how wonderful a translation is, it has limitations...Second,
and even more important, is the fact that we often miss the full impact of
familiar Bible verses, not because of poor translating, but simply
because they have become so familiar! ...Therefore I have deliberately used
paraphrases in order to help you see God's truth in new, fresh ways...."
Apparently, "Pastor" Warren,
thinks very little of the King James Bible, since it has too many "limitations" that he
does not want people to get too "familiar" with. His stated objective is to
"help you see God's truth in new, fresh
ways," but he fails to mention that his and Peterson's "Message" will lead people away
from the "Cross of Christ."
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 "For such are false apostles, deceitful
workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for
Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great
thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness;
whose end shall be according to their works."
People are searching for purpose
and meaning and Mr. Rick Warren has exploited this great "need" in the
lives of so many innocent people in order to advance his own agenda; and like
so many others before him, he uses Jesus' name for personal, political,
financial, and spiritual gain.
It is only through Christ, that we
can know our true purpose in this life, and "tainted" Bibles are
helping to lead many
people into the Darkness, and dying churches are a direct result
of this Darkened condition.
Another major way that God's people have given
the Devil an opening to worm his way into the churches is by their acceptance of
LORD Shall Judge His People" reveals how membership into this esoteric "club" was
addressed by the
Southern Baptist Convention back in June 1993, and due to their ruling, the Southern
Baptist Churches could remain in good standing even if they sanctioned
Freemasonry. Interestingly, the
SBC directly links to "Pastor" Rick Warren's Church.
God has led me to address specific
issues with certain religious leaders, ministries, and individuals over the
years, but my warnings continue to fall on deaf ears, but sadly that is just another
sign of the Times.
2 Timothy 4:1-4 "I charge thee
therefore before God, and the LORD Jesus Christ, who shall Judge the quick (or
living) and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom; Preach the word; be
instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering
For the Time will come when they will not endure
sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves
teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from
the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."
We are living in such a Time when
television, books, and movies have a great influence over people whether
they understand it or not. Just look at the popular fictitious fables of
the "Left Behind" books of Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. Their
affected how people view the coming of the LORD, and the end of the world, but
those who rely on fabricated
stories to know the Truth will be in for a very rude awaken!
However, the great
disunity among God's people in regard to the coming of the LORD is not only
because of LaHaye's novels and false doctrine, but due to
"misinterpretation" of certain texts, even in the KJV Bible.
Actually, it was during my
study of "The Rapture," that
I unexpectedly found some flaws in the KJV, that I have noted in
"My Rapture View."
It is important to emphasize
that the inaccuracies were due to oversight during the translation process, not
because of corrupt manuscripts as it is with modern versions that use the "Vaticanus"
and the "Sinaiticus."
Furthermore, the King James Version of the Holy
Bible is a very sound translation and will never lead a man away from God, as
some of the modern versions do.

The true condition of our heart will
greatly affect how we view God, and more importantly how God views us; and only those who
are truly "born again"
by the Holy Spirit, will be able to see through the Darkness. Please consider this illuminating passage.
Matthew 6:21-24 “For where your treasure is, there
will your heart be also. The light of the body is the eye: if therefore
thine eye be single, (or clear) thy whole body shall be full of Light. But if
thine eye be evil, (or cloudy) thy whole body shall be full of Darkness. If
therefore the light that is in thee be Darkness, how great is that Darkness!

David Cloud, of Way of Life, is
advocate for the
King James Bible, and he has
informative articles at his website so that people can better understand the Bible
appears to be a sincere Christian
determination to defend the Gospel, but I Am concerned about some of his other
views, and even some of what he says about the King James Bible.
Cloud says, "I
do not believe the King James Bible contains any errors,"
but if that was entirely true, how does he
account for corrections made in
subsequent editions, and also the occasional errors and misuse of italics by the King James editors?
Consider this passage from the KJV, whereby the italics
do indeed change the meaning.
With the italics:
2 Timothy 4:14-18 "Alexander
the coppersmith did me much evil: the LORD reward him according to his works: Of
whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words.
At my first answer no man
stood with me, but all men forsook me: I pray God that it may not
be laid to their charge. Notwithstanding the LORD
stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully
known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of
the mouth of the lion.
And the LORD shall deliver me
from every evil work, and will preserve me unto His heavenly kingdom: to
whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen."
Now without the italics:
2 Timothy 4:14-18 "Alexander
the coppersmith did me much evil: the LORD reward him according to his works: Of
whom be thou ware also; for he hath greatly withstood our words.
At my first answer no man
stood with me, but all forsook me: that it may not be laid to their charge. Notwithstanding the LORD
stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully
known, and all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of
And the LORD shall deliver me
from every evil work, and will preserve unto His heavenly kingdom: to Whom glory
for ever and ever. Amen."
Paul was not asking God to forgive
those who did not stand with him as it implies with the italics, but he was
naming the names of those who were giving him trouble, and making it clear that
he had been forsaken by those who were afraid to stand with him for whatever
rejection only increased Paul's
faith in the LORD God, and for those who were truly repentant, I Am sure God did
not hold it against them for initially rejecting this man who was a very
faithful Apostle of Christ.
The Bible Controversy has caused
great division between God's people, and "tainted Scriptures" is one of the
primary reasons, but I hope you see that even
those who read and study from the KJV can be deceived.
The Evil One is fully intent on leading as
many people astray as he can, and
I see that
blinded by some of the deceptions of the Devil, and his
faulty view of the "rapture"
is a major indicator.
Over the years, I have sensed
somewhat of an aversion towards me from Mr. Cloud, but I sent him my messages
anyways hoping he would see the Truth. After I sent "Hell Is Real!"
his only response to me was, "Not interested. Do not include me on any mailings. D.
I will surely honor his request, as
I Am led of the
I hope that he will see the Truth about the coming of the LORD
God's Role For Women, as those errors in judgment do "cloud" his
vision, even though he reads and studies from the King James Bible.
God is truly the only One who can
give Cloud ''eyes to see" the Truth, but if he remains in the Darkness,
and continues to reject the "Light," he is surely headed for a fall, along with all
passage to keep in mind as you
consider the semantics used in the translation of the Holy Scriptures is from
Apocrypha, which is another controversial matter, and one that Cloud also
rejects, but it is worthy of prayerful consideration.
Prologue to Wisdom of Jesus, Son of Sirach, "For the same things uttered
in Hebrew, and translated into another tongue, have not the same force in them…"
In other words, in the translation process of God's Word, the meaning is not
always accurately conveyed for lack of a proper nomenclature or corresponding

teaching that has helped to
facilitate this misconception is that people are taught that preaching and
prophesying are synonymous, but when you examine the meaning of the Greek texts,
it proves otherwise.
Consider some of these definitions from Strong's Concordance:

Due to my research into this
important topic, I Am even more convinced of the importance of diligent,
independent, and prayerful study of God's word from
an untainted Bible. Consider these relevant Scriptures.

we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the

The translators/scholars of the
"modern versions" that use the "dynamic equivalent" method of translating are in
direct violation of God's Word, because rather than translating it "word for

than restating it.
a man is truly inspired by God's Spirit, and ordained by Him, as were Jesus'
Apostles, including Paul, the "one born out of due time," do they have the
ability and authority to fully interpret God's Word.

preacher (#2783), and an apostle (#652), and a teacher (#1320)
of the Gentiles. For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I

and some, evangelists (#2099); and some, pastors (#4166)

Moreover, due to my experience, I have great compassion for those
who have been deceived by the Devil, and I have a very strong desire
to warn innocent people who are in danger of being led astray by him.
Peter 2:1-3 "But
there were false prophets (#5578) also among the people, even as there shall be false
teachers (#5572) among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying
the LORD that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by
reason of whom the way of Truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned
words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not,
and their damnation slumbereth not."
Malachi 4:1-6 "For, behold, the Day cometh, that shall burn as
an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and
the Day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall
leave them neither root nor branch.
But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun
of righteousness arise with healing in His wings; and ye shall go forth, and
grow up as calves of the stall. And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall
be ashes under the soles of your feet in the Day that I shall do this,

heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their
fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."
This world desperately needs some righteous
men like Elijah. Men who love God and His Word―Men who will stand up for
the Truth, and stand against the lies―Men who are willing to defend the Testimony of Jesus, at all cost, and whose prayers
really make a difference with God.
fully convinced the King James
Bible, the translation that has been published by many publishers since 1611,
has accomplished exactly what God intended for His word to do. It has stood the test of Time, regardless of
what lies the Devil has said about God and His Word.
The newer Bible versions may be
easier to read and relate
to, but if they are from corrupt manuscripts that do not convict people of sin,
and show them their need for the Saviour, what great benefit are they?
I Am reminded of what a
fellow Christian said at a Bible Forum I used to frequently visit. He said, "...People can talk around it,
dance around it, philosophize around it, create doctrines around it, but
nevertheless it still stands...the wages of sin is death." And that is the
We must never lose sight of the fact that Satan
greatly desires to make a mockery of God, His Word, and His Son, and he is doing
exactly that through many of the "modern versions" of the Bible. It all
started with tiny seeds not easily detected in the
Version, but it is now very clear that the Great Deceiver is the one who planted those seeds!
of the modern versions are like a dull blade that can be used, but with
caution. However, over time the blade has gotten unreliable, and many of the modern "translations"
are comparable to a
rusty sword that will make you very ill and eventually kill you if you trust in them.
Satan can use the King
James Bible to mislead people for a given Time, but God will lead them back to
Him if their heart is true.
Conversely, the current versions are
just a weapon in the hand of the Enemy to lead people in the wrong direction, with no hope of ever finding their way.
I admit some
"KJV Only" advocates are extreme, as is
Peter Ruckman. Based on what is reported about him, he is a pastor
who has garnered much support for his view, and he teaches that "the King James
Bible is more authoritative than the Greek and Hebrew texts," and that "not
until the original manuscripts were translated into English by the editors of
the KJV Bible, did we have a truly accurate text."
In other words, he is saying God needed scholars to improve upon the words He
inspired "Holy" men to write down!
audacity!! Only a prideful, arrogant man could say such a thing, and if
Peter Ruckman actually believes the King James Bible is superior to the original languages,
he is under a delusion! Self-righteous, pride
is extremely dangerous to walk in, and it will lead men into the
Darkness, and away from the Light, just where Satan wants them to be.
considering Mr. Ruckman's view of abortion, he is a man that cannot be trusted
to speak the Truth. Consider this direct quote from this "King James Only"
advocate, Mr. Peter Ruckman: “I teach that a baby is not a living soul until it
breathes. I’m considered a great heretic for teaching that, but then again if a
man goes by the King James Bible he’s bound to be a heretic these days. And so I
don’t teach that abortion is murder like the brethren do..."
Such an outrageous
statement from a man who says he is a Christian! Any true Christian knows that abortion is
murder of the worst kind! And for him to teach such a thing, and claim to be a
follower of Jesus Christ, only brings shame to His Holy Name, but like I said
the Devil has his evil workers in every camp, and Satan takes great pleasure in
Years ago God gave me an important
