I believe the KJV is one of the most accurate versions, and that most modern versions are corrupted by a satanic agenda to corrupt the true meaning of Lord's Word ! And this satanic agenda comes from the Vatican ! I do not believe the KJV is the only accurate version existing in the World ! And I believe the emperor Constantine suppressed 80 % of Holy Books from the Original Canon, and that our current Canon is incomplete ! You can notice that from beginning to end of our current cannon.
What about the book of Jasher mentioned in Scriptures ? What about the book of Enoch ( not the heretical one ) mentioned by the Apostle Judas ( not the Iscariot ) before the book of revelation ?
What about the books of the prophets Iddo and Shemajah mentioned in Scriptures ?
Do you think great prophets like Adam and Enoch would have written nothing, really ?
What about the whole life of Jesus ? No detailed books about his whole life, really ? Jesus wrote nothing, really ? Only a few apostles would have written, and the other apostles would have written nothing, really ?

I believe the Vatican made a great campaign to suppress all that is mentioned above, to keep people in great ignorance and spiritual slavery ! But in middle ages, some people began to wake up and they dare to read a bit of the few 20 % of Holy Scriptures which Constantine didn't suppress from the original Canon, and they were literary slaughtered by millions by the satanic Inquisition from the Vatican ! If not for them, we would still have nothing as Scriptures today !
It's not complete, but it's infinitely better than nothing, and millions of martyrs sacrificed their lives for that, I would always remember that !

Even with incomplete or corrupt versions of Scriptures, the Holy Spirit is able to work. Yes, it's poisonous bread, but remember, the Lord is able to make a poisonous food safe to eat ! The Lord is able to make a poisonous source of water safe to drink !
If that's the only source of food or water you have, it has nothing to do with tempting the Lord, as the Lord know Himself this is the only source of food and water we have !

It was with a modern but somehow quite accurate version that I understood that Jesus is God, and that He was truly crucified on the cross for the World's Salvation !
And it was quite an event in my life ! However, now that I'm more advanced in my spiritual journey on earth, I understood some versions are much more accurate than others, and I prefer to use the more accurate versions !
I also discover how scandalous are some satanic translations or suppression of certain verses, and I understand the great anger of many believers about that ! Since the Original Canon was forbidden by the Vatican, now all we have to do is to be content with the few Scriptures we have with the most accurate version possible, and for the Scriptures we don't have we have to rely on the guidance of the Holy Spirit who know all things in present, past, and future !

Let the Body of Christ seek Unity, and avoid Division !
For the Body of Christ becomes strong in Unity, and becomes weak in Division !

Maranatha !

Not for nothing, but I do find it humorous that I have to come to a Christian Site to be called such things simply because I enjoy reading a particular translation of the Word of God..........am I the only one who finds this a bit humorous?

(from Wikipedia)
[h=2]Etymology[edit source | editbeta][/h]The word idolatry comes (by haplology) from the Greek word εἰδωλολατρία eidololatria parasynthetically from εἰδωλολάτρης from εἴδωλον eidolon, "image" or "figure", and λάτρις latris, "worshipper"[SUP][2][/SUP] or λατρεύειν latreuein, "to worship" from λάτρον latron "payment". Although the Greek appears to be a loan translation of the Hebrew phrase avodat elilim, which is attested in rabbinic literature (e.g., bChul., 13b, Bar.), the Greek term itself is not found in the Septuagint, Philo, Josephus, or in other Hellenistic Jewish writings. It is also not found in (pre-Christian) Greek literature. In the New Testament, the Greek word is found only in the letters of Paul, 1 Peter, 1 John, and Revelation, where it has a derogatory meaning, as one of the vices. It is also found in the Didache and the Apostolic Decree includes a prohibition from the "pollution of idols". Hebrew terms for idolatry include avodah zarah (foreign worship) and avodat kochavim umazalot (worship of planets and constellations).

In current context, however, idolatry is not limited to religious concepts. It can also refer to a social phenomenon where false perceptions are created and worshipped, or even used as a term in the entertainment industry.

If I misunderstood you then I apologize, but honestly the issue of the bible translations are very deep. To say really that say any version besides the KJV or something is evil or corrupt even just a little corrupt makes no sense to me. The word of God can never be corrupted God would not allow that. But again if I misunderstood you then I sincerely am sorry my intent was not to be mean or rude

Wrong TannarDarr.

There is a true Bible. It is God's perfect, pure, preserved and inerrant word. And that is the Authorized King James Holy Bible.

You need to study this issue more.

God promised to preserve His words:


Psalm 12:6-7 KJV
The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. [7] Thou shalt keep them, O Lord , thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

The KJV was written from a copy of the preserved words.

They took out books after they made it. So at what point did it become inerrant?

God has revealed more to us since 1611 of the Greek language. WHy do you think He did that if he wanted to be worshipped in thees and thous?

In my eyes, you put the book before the message, and the book before God. That is based solely on what I see here.

The King James was concocted, not preserved.

If you wish to say it's older than the NIV for example, then fine, the texts the NET Bible, and ESV uses for their translations is older than the ones the KJV did. So I'd say they win the "preserved" debate hands down.

any other half thoughts, you'd like to make half arguments from?

If you can't tell, while I'm not afraid of being wrong, when someone starts off with "WRONG" it shows they try to define me as a failure before they show it. That means, they know, inside, they didn't have the argument to show it, and it needed to be spoken again for emphasis.

God bless.
Rofl ROFL ROFL. you worship that book. Why did they add words to the Bible? and verses, and such? I wonder why they changed the words when the bible itself says the person changing the words would go to hell?

I can use the KJV just fine. I have no issues with it. IN FACT I Think it's the most lovely translation we have. Those guys were artists who did the most with what they had. They built the pyramids with slaves, logs, ropes and backmuscles. TODAY we use equipment, like cranes, hydraulic lifts, etc... Do you know why? Because we have learned since then, things we didn't know. I'd argue they are God revealed lessons for us.

The King Jim is fine.

Of the verses you mention above. there is no difference. EXCEPT for a worshiper of pedantics. The message is the same in all of them.

I'm not telling you that you are wrong for using the King Jim.

But you are idolizing it when you make IT more holy than the message. BY DEFINITION you are idolizing it at that point.

I know from a brief study that the history of translating the ancient texts into the KJV was a very thorough, strict process. Could I rattle off the whole reasoning behind it? Probably not, I'd have to go back and try to find all the facts again but bottom line is--I made a conscious decision to believe what I had in my hand is the word of God.

I'll use the KJV first, then NIV second...but why give it a second thought? You either believe what you have in your hand is the word of God or you don't. If you feel like what you're reading isn't what you think should be written then maybe you need to look inside your soul instead of blaming the book's origin.

I don't know what it means to worship the KJV. You can prefer a version but to worship it sounds ridiculous.

Using the KJV isn't worshiping it. But when someone is so rabid about it that it's their biggest passion..... you got issues.

For those who want to learn from more educated people, and get out of the opinion, emotionally driven spew you'll find in ANY debate forum on this topic, please see the following... all are links to comments from Conservative Christian sources.

Eternally-gratefull,

Where in the Bible is there a command to preach the original manuscripts?

Also, where does it say that only the original manuscripts are inspired?

Could you please provide chapter and verse?

Where in the Bible does it say King JIMMY will someday finally get my word right. Until then, all others are flawed.

You are frothing, do you need a drool cup? OR a bib?

The very verse you posted to me, proved Jim's copy was not right by YOUR standard. You are all presumption and bluster.

Eternally-gratefull, I see that you still have not answered my two questions. And I know why. It is simply because you know that there is no Scripture supporting what you stated about the original manuscripts.
YOu really don't realize how stupid a comment that was, do you? Pardon my harshness, but it matches your tone and hubris laden comments. Since you opened that door, I'll walk in there with you.

There is no verse anywhere saying King Jim's is right either. So your standard fails.


Inspiration did not stop at the Original Autographs. But Inspiration continued on. Inspiration was and is kept through preservation down through the centuries.


GOOD POINT, and when GOD revealed older and older texts to use, probably because people like you put the KJBible over HIM in your passions :), he continued that Inspiriation> And as scholars learned more refined meanings of the Greek words than the KJV people knew, that inspiration carried on.

So why do you urinate on it and demand the KJ is the only one? Your own arguments betray you.
Here's another thought. As hard as those scholars worked for King Jim, and as honest and as sincere as they were in their efforts, knowing that JIM was usurping authority from ROME over the Bible's ownership, how excited do you think they would have been, to lay hold of texts that were older and closer to the events, than Rome had?

MUAHAhahahaahah they would have frothed at the mouth like you do now.


What good would it be to give the words of Scripture by inspiration if those very words were not going to be kept through preservation?

exactly. Why do you shun the older, more preserved, with no additions to them scripts the other Bible's used for translation?


Seriously consider your position Eternally-grateful. When Paul told Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:15 that from a child he had known the holy Scriptures, Paul was not referring to the original manuscripts. Paul was referring to a copy that Timothy had.


And the texts used for the other Bibles, not the King Jim, are older, closer to what TIM held than what you have in Jim's work. So again, thanks for making our case for us.


So not only are you wrong but your statement about the Original manuscripts is unbiblical.
There is nothing in the Bible, that will say which translation in English 2K years later will be the preferred by GOD edition. That is patently ludicrous to even ask for. JIM'S can't make that standard either.

Yeah, the ole King James. The rest of those books they call a bible are written with a denomination slant to fit there doctines. Lotta truths are lost in those other books. Wax old and obsolete are not even close to the same word meaning and yet that's as far as they would go in hiding the truth.

Hi! There's absolutely no difference between the Scripture and the Message or the Teachings !
It's the same !
Jesus Himself is called The Word !
sigh. :( I don't want to put you on the spot. So I'll advise go do a thorough study on LOGOS to understand the breadth of it's meaning.

Calling the bible the Word, rather than the word of God, deifies the Bible. YOu would then have a Quadrinity.

You need to study this issue more.
Study the issue more = give money to Gail Riplinger.

You would have us follow Gail Riplinger and spend our hard-earned money on her books, where is the sound doctrine in her teaching?

A REVIEW/REFUTATION OF Gail Riplinger�s New Age Bible Versions

View attachment 57087

http://avpublications.org/articles/gail-riplinger-who-is-she.pdf

Who is Gail Riplinger? A Warning for God’s Sheep
By Aletheia O’Brien

Gail Riplinger has had two unscriptural divorces, both while a professing Christian (as her testimony indicates), and then she lied to cover them up when they were discovered. Neither of her first two husbands petitioned for the divorces; Gail did. Neither husband had committed marital unfaithfulness.6 In the lectures quoted from above, she withheld the important information of her divorces from her audiences as she likened herself to these law-abiding women and claimed a false right to teach in church pulpits, despite 1 Corinthians 14:34. During the 1990s, as Riplinger visited various churches to teach on the King James Bible, she was an unlawfully divorced woman with two husbands living. Pastors who hold strong scriptural convictions concerning divorce and remarriage were not allowed to know about this before inviting her to speak to their congregations.

Interestingly, 19th-century occult leader Madame Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (H.P.B.), one of the New Age/occult sources most often cited by Riplinger in her argument against Modern English Versions, was herself divorced twice. It is highly likely that Riplinger, who has claimed she read all sorts of New Age material when she was in the New Age movement, studied Blavatsky’s writings. Riplinger’s detailed knowledge of Blavatsky’s books, cited in New Age Bible Versions, seems to further indicate this. Since the moral character of people who hold a position of teaching authority in the body of Christ is of high importance, the matter of Gail Riplinger’s divorces, her covering them and then her lying about them needs to be addressed. The details in this booklet are the result of four years of in-depth research on the part of my husband and myself. We have studied her teachings and found many errors, and we have looked at the person doing the teaching. Because defending truth is of utmost importance, we must go into detail to address this situation. We are addressing “who is Gail Riplinger?” because a person’s message is only as good as the messenger where the church is concerned. God says: “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.” Let us all take it to heart.

Someone has said, “But Mrs. Riplinger’s divorces happened before she became a Christian, didn’t they? So, they don’t matter.” That would be true if that were the case. But it isn’t. In early 2007, we launched an intensive background investigation on Mrs. Riplinger and discovered the unscriptural nature of her divorces. In early 2008, after hearing that Mrs. Riplinger had told Dr. and Mrs. D.A. Waite that she had never been married to any man other than her current husband, Michael, we mailed copies of her marriage and divorce documents to them. Because she lied about them to the Waites, and to the Church at large, we made her divorce and marriage documents available on the Internet, so that those concerned could see the truth for themselves. Since she is a public teacher (having been invited to speak in many Independent Fundamental Baptist churches, and since her teaching is public record), she is a public figure who has influenced many people who have purchased her books and other materials—and who might have otherwise chosen not to if they had known the truth. Therefore, the public has the right to know about this serious, holistic moral issue. Even if her divorces were within proper scriptural guidelines (which they are not), it still would not give her license to lie about them. If she believes herself without guilt for obtaining the divorces, then why did she keep them secret and lie about them when they were discovered? After verifying her divorce documents for himself, Dr. D.A. Waite confronted Gail privately by phone during the summer of 2009, giving her the chance to explain why she had lied, which she declined. Dr. Waite went public with her denial and the divorce documents at his July 2009 Bible conference. People who trusted her for over a decade became concerned that she had lied about something as serious as divorce. Soon afterward, most likely realizing that the divorces were undeniable, Riplinger formed a story seemingly intended to pacify her following and make her appear innocent in obtaining the divorces. In a letter purported to be from her current pastor (Dewayne Sands of Believer’s Baptist Church), Gail’s daughter, Bryn Riplinger Shutt, was quoted explaining on behalf of her mother:

By now, some might be asking: But why would Mrs. Riplinger want to change or cover the facts? First, there’s the protection of her book sales (since 1993), a large source of income. At the time that the divorces became undeniable fact,19 Mrs. Riplinger’s sixth book, Hazardous Materials, had just left the printing press and was being marketed throughout the King James Bible world.

Second, there is the problem of all those pastors who trusted her, who now know the truth. They believed she was being honest with them about herself, when during the 1990s she gained their trust and they allowed her to teach doctrine to their congregations, from their church pulpits.20 She portrayed herself as someone she was not. Some of these pastors—many of whom adhere to the clear scriptural rules regarding divorce and remarriage in the Scripture—could end up feeling betrayed by Riplinger’s lack of moral forthrightness. They believed they could trust her. If Scripture lays out a set of rules for men who want to be pastors, deacons, elders, and teachers, then anyone (man or woman) who teaches doctrine (of any kind) in the church should also be held to biblical moral standards and seek to lead a life in obedience to God’s word. Those pastors should have obeyed the rule in 1 Corinthians 14:34 concerning women speaking to the church when in assembly. Even if Riplinger wasn’t teaching in those pulpits, the integrity of her life would still be an issue because she has been elevated as a core leader in the King James Bible world. If a man or woman does not have their life in proper order, they are in no capacity to teach any doctrine to the body of Christ. Christians are “living epistles” and the very act of what they do is who they are, and that matters for good or for bad in the body of Christ. The Apostle Paul stated, “But I keep under [discipline] my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway [disqualified] (1 Corinthians 9:27).” This policy should be important to all. God’s moral rules are for everyone. And it is the responsibility of pastors, as shepherds, to see that anyone they allow to occupy their pulpit is within the proper guidelines of Scripture, as well as in proper standing with God’s word in their personal life. It is Riplinger’s responsibility to acknowledge she was wrong.

Lying Early On to the Church About Her Marital Status

In the 1990s, instead of sharing her divorces when talking about those parts of her life, Gail Riplinger was concealing them with lies even then, lying to the people who had put their trust in her, by fabricating a false story about herself. When she lectured to a large group of pastors at the Gospel Light Baptist Church of Walkertown, NC, in the late 1990s,21 she said:

I was a professor at Kent State University. Now, I don’t want you to think I’m a woman’s lib person or anything, cuz I don’t believe—I believe women should be keepers at home. But I wasn’t married …

I believe the KJV is one of the most accurate versions, and that most modern versions are corrupted by a satanic agenda to corrupt the true meaning of Lord's Word !
And you base this on what? Maybe the particular type of mushrooms you had on your pizza's influence? If you had ANY education on the other translations' history, you'd be embarrassed for yourself. I'm embarrassed enough for both of us for you though.

And this satanic agenda comes from the Vatican !
And Garlic keeps vampires away. and Holy water melts vampires into a nice dip for crackers. I mean, if you are going to accept a story as far out there as that, NOT TO MENTION IMPOSSIBLE, then let's take all the stupid wild stories and buy into all of them.

I do not believe the KJV is the only accurate version existing in the World ! And I believe the emperor Constantine suppressed 80 % of Holy Books from the Original Canon, and that our current Canon is incomplete !
And you further prove your lack of education on the topic. You need to buy more books, and find better people to listen to. They will have you quitting your job and chasing rainbows soon. I'm trying to keep this light with some humor, but your comments are to the point of bizarre they are so off.


IYou can notice that from beginning to end of our current cannon.
Maranatha !
OH YEAH, the other books of the bible that you claim constantine kept out...

Constantine didn't have any influence on what books were in there. Go buy a Church history book and read about it. HE may have, MAY HAVE influenced the opinions of some in the council of NICEA on what it's purpose was, but that was to answer a "heresy" issue, not write the Bible.

There is a reason those 80% of the books were suppressed. If you did ANY RESEARCH it's so blatantly obvious on most of them, that you would hide your face in shame.

Acts 28:29 is missing from many Bibles, but we can trust Martin Luther!

Luther Bibel
Und da er solches redete, gingen die Juden hin und hatten viel Fragens unter sich selbst.

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

English Standard Version
[missing]

New International Version
[moved to footnote]
OOooo good point. woot woot.

Tell me, does it make you as uncomfy as me that we are both on the same side here? :p

Not for nothing, but I do find it humorous that I have to come to a Christian Site to be called such things simply because I enjoy reading a particular translation of the Word of God..........am I the only one who finds this a bit humorous?
Name-calling is predicted. :)

Taking place on the Internet was a lot of “bashing” of those who chose not to use only the King James Version. There were some who made “another gospel” of their belief that the King James Version is the only Bible, and anyone who did not believe as they did were “doomed to hell.” The precious shed blood of Jesus Christ and belief in Him for salvation was no longer enough. One had to also read only the KJV, or else. It had become Jesus Christ plus the KJV and in some cases, the KJV was held more important that Jesus Christ. The unloving words did not even remotely resemble Christ-likeness. It was a dark area. Some plainly told others to “go to hell” because they did not believe that God had declared the KJV as the only Bible.

After all we had found, we were a bit surprised when we read Riplinger’s claim that it was God who wrote New Age Bible Versions and that she was just the “secretary.” It is the height of blasphemy for anyone to give God credit for anything that is a lie. Scripture is CLEAR that God cannot lie.

Why the slander ? Did you read well what I wrote ? I guess not ! What I call satanic are slandering translations of Scriptures and suppression of certain verses ! Would you call that satanic agenda Lord's Will, or the Antichrist's will ?
YOU CHOOSE !
OOooo good point. woot woot.

Tell me, does it make you as uncomfy as me that we are both on the same side here? :p
Not at all! I took the opportunity to clarify that Martin Luther wasn't involved in this "satanic agenda". I have no idea why DragonSlayer hates Luther so much...

Now I will answer no more to your messages. I need to keep my head clear from any confusing and irritating heresies from this false doctor Martin Luther and his indoctrinated victims.
The Geneva Bible too, some of the footnotes were written by Calvin himself.

Acts 28:29 And when he had said these things, the Jews departed, and had great reasoning among themselves.
