Deletions

  • Matthew 17:21, 18:11, 23:14
  • Mark 7:16, 9:44, 9:46, 11:26, 15:28, and last 12 verses in Mark 16
  • Luke 17:36, 23:17
  • John 5:4
  • Acts 8:37, 15:34, 24:7, 28:29
  • Romans 16:24

Not Easier to Read

  • Ephesians 4:15-16 – joint changed to “supporting ligament” – easier to understand?
  • Changes in modern versions that don’t update anything: Leviticus 11:30 snail to skink, hell to hades almost every time, Ezekiel 31:4 river to rivulets, 1 Samuel 13:21 file to pim, Acts 27:17 quicksand to Syrtis sands

Doctrines attacked in modern versions that they’ve inherited from the corrupt manuscripts (“As long as no doctrine is affected”)

  • Lie found in Mark 1:2 – as it is written in Isaiah the prophet: “I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way –  This is not found in Isaiah, it’s in Malachi 3:1.
  • Deity of Christ: 1 Timothy 3:16 “God” changed to “he”, John 3:16 “one and only son” (which is a lie) in line with 1 John 4:3 and the spirit of antichrist
  • Virgin birth: Luke 2:33 “the child’s father” is said to be Joseph
  • Redemption: Colossians 1:14: “through his blood” is deleted
  • Baptism: Acts 8:37 Verse omitted
  • Isaiah 14:12 & Revelation 22:16 in an NIV Jesus Christ and the Devil are the same person – “the morning star”
