John 1:14 KJV
And the Word[Jesus] was made flesh and dwelt among us. (and we beheld his [Jesus] glory, the glory as of the only begotten [Jesus] of the Father), full of grace and truth.

John 1:14 NIV
The Word[Jesus] became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his [Jesus] glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Is "was made" the same as "became?"

Of course I can see the difference. The KJV suggests that Jesus was made, as though He were a created being! That's terrible! Throw that corrupt abomination in the rubbish bin where it belongs!

Jesus earthly body was created, and he entered that body. What is so difficult to understand? The KJV says he was God, and that then he was made man,

Yes, we can note the difference.

Another example of wrong translation in the KJV.

The Jehovah's Witnesses and other cultists and heterodox people also study the Bible for many years yet persist in their delusions. It like you have several delusions also, so you have two options (a) start afresh or (b) persist in delusions.
The quote above is from Nehemiah 6 on a different thread.


I tried to speak some sense to this very confused person (DJ777) at length yesterday. (different thread) He claims to have picked up the idea that Jesus is not God from reading the KJV. He made a big show of calling other translations corrupt and man made. Does this sound familiar? He was banned after repeatedly denying the deity of Jesus.



Reading the word continually is most important, that is just reading large sections at a time. Like reading 5-10 chapters at once.
Make sure your reading the king James version as it's most accurate on word translation.
Stay away from the likes of the message bible or the NLT bible as they are WRONG. I've researched this and many many verses are totally wrong.
It's only as you read the word over and over that you get it in your spirit and it becomes a part of you. Only then will your relationship with God grow to where it should be.
I know this to be true from experience.

This KJVO movement is a dangerous heresy. It's leading people from one error into another one much worse.

Become: come into being.
Became: past of become.

Therefore, the niv lied about the Word

The Word was in the beginning, the was with God in the beginning, and the Word was God.

Made: formed, as by some process.

The Word was made flesh.

Which is the truth about the Word.

Go back to Philipians 2 and read the difference between what the truth in the Holy Bible is as compared to the lie the niv tells.

In Philipians 2 the niv lies and says that Jesus Christ became nothing.
That is a absurd statement.

Do you readers not realize that the poison inserted in the niv is deadly? Its not in the niv to bless or edify you. Its the poisonous venom of the serpent.

You are trying sooo hard...

But whenever you try attack other translations, it returns more heavily against the KJV. Simply because the KJV is not as good as you believe.

The Holy Bible tells its readers the truths of God.
The delusions that some people have Isn't due to the Holy Bible text.
Unbelief towards God is the reason man falls away from truth and believes a lie.

Opinion is worthless, but what is written of God in his Holy Book of scripture is more valuable than gold and jewels and the opinions of men.

King James English is English not a language so difficult that antikjvonlyist can't handle. Get a brain and don't wimp out when God requires you to rise to his level of rigorous precision in communication if God's truth.
And yet ............

Philipians 2:6 King James Version
"Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God"

You managed to come up with this........


"Thought it not" means that Jesus Christ never thought it, not once, not ever.

What did Jesus never think?
Jesus never thought "it robbery to be equal with God."
That is to say, that Jesus didn't think like Satan, and his rebel angels thought. They thought they could steal the authority of God and by taking his throne.
Jesus never thought he was equal with God, his Father.
But some of you think you can authorize yourselves as equal to the task of editing God's written word. Of course in that pursuit the same pretense God's written word doesn't exist on earth anymore.

The niv is stating that Jesus was equal to God, his Father, which can't be.

What matters is not how well you claim you can translate, which you absolutely can't honestly do. But rather, can you tell the truth about Jesus Christ, confess your lies about him, and repent?
It's time to get honest and repent Joseppi.

You have clearly proven that YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND King James English. You have interpreted this verse to mean the OPPOSITE to what it is saying. I warned you of this before. You don't have a magic translator chip in your brain. Consult a KJV reader like Nehemiah 6 over this if you wish.
But stop repeating myths.

The only place that it would make a difference is in your blinders-on, narrow-minded, obsessive-compulsive world, where you cannot see truth even when it is plainly explained by brothers and sisters who CAN see it.

Saying that Jesus "became nothing" is in reference to his previous state of being a spiritual entity in the Godhead.

When you become physical, instead of God's spoken Word, you have become "nothing" in comparison.

Take off your blinders.

A entity, including a spiritual one, exists.
Jesus Christ didn't become nothing, to then become something else.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.
He that denies that Jesus Christ came in the flesh is antichrist.


When you become physical, instead of God's spoken Word, you have become "nothing" in comparison.
You invented the notion that "the Word" refers to the spoken word.

The reason "word" is capitalized in referring to Jesus Christ, before he was manifest in the flesh, is because "the Word" is a person, whom we now know, by revelation of God, as Jesus Christ.

You would do well not to make up your own definitions for important words. Given the definition below, your fear-mongering is baseless. Here is how a real dictionary (Oxford) defines "become":

verb (became, becomes, becoming)1 no object, with complement Begin to be.
‘she became angry and sulked all day’

change gradually, transmute, turn, go

  • 1.1 Grow to be; develop into. ‘the child will become an adult’


  • come to be, get to be, turn out to be, grow, get, turn
  • 1.2 (of a person) qualify or be accepted as. ‘she wanted to become a doctor’

    be appointed as, be assigned as, be nominated, be elected as, be made
  • 1.3 become of (in questions) happen to. ‘what would become of her now?’

I really wish you would learn to read and comprehend. That is exactly what I was talking about.... before Jesus became human, and took on a fleshly body, he was the Word... of God. Everything that was created was created by the spoken Word of God. (Jesus) When God put Jesus on the earth, the Word became flesh...(human). Being human meant that he was no longer in heaven with God and the Spirit.

He was the nature of God, or the Word of God, in a human body. That is what the scripture is saying... compared to his spiritual life as the Word, his human life required him to become basically "nothing" in comparison.

You are simply too eager to create issues that do not exist, for people with reading/comprehension abilities.
