Which stream are YOU drinking from?
by Paul Benson
If you have read much of my writing you’ve probably heard me say the following in one fashion or another: One of the greatest challenges I face as a voice to the Body of Christ is not only getting folks to wake up to the fact the Holy Scriptures are being horribly altered in the new Bible versions, but also to get them to understand the great damage this perverting of God’s Word is perpetrating upon his people.
Even many people who know the new Bibles are chock full of alterations and deletions of text still use them regularly; believing they can do so without ill effect. But just because an ill-effect goes unnoticed does not make it non-existent! If you are using a modern version PLEASE pray about (and give honest consideration to) this article:
Through deletions and additions of text, removal of doctrinal emphasis, using words of altered meaning, and introducing confusing errors of human reasoning, the changes to the modern Bibles are SERIOUSLY affecting the beliefs of ALL those who study and preach from them! If you think you are immune to this influence you are fooling yourself!
While there are certainly other factors involved, I fully believe one of the major reasons today’s Gospel preaching (as well as today’s Christian behavior) bears such little resemblance to that of 150 years ago is that most of today’s preaching is a watered down and corrupted message strongly influenced by watered down and corrupted Bibles! Please let me validate that claim by putting some solid proof right before your eyes. Continue reading “The Two Streams (Or: Turning God’s Truth Into A Lie!)”

“I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish….” Luke 13:3,5
“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.” Acts 3:19
“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent….” Acts 17:30
“But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” Matthew 9:13
In my experience, it has been very rare to attend a church that consistently teaches the narrow road to Jesus Christ…the road that travels through his blood, shed freely for our sins on a cold hard cross.

People often remark that the new Bibles do not change God’s Word, they just say the same thing in a different manner. But is that statement true or false?

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. 2Timothy 3:16-17
I love the Word of God! It has brought to me understanding of who God is, and how deeply he cares for me. In addition the Scriptures give us revelation about what God’s will is for the believer, how he deals with mankind, and (as is stated above) they are a foundation for proper doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness. All are vital aspects of our Christian faith.
Considering how crucial these words are to us, I think you would agree, it is quite important they are not altered or slurred the least bit. And I believe that God is absolutely of the same opinion!
As someone who has spent much time doing comparative verse by verse examination of the various versions, I can say without a doubt the new Bibles ARE altered in a fashion which completely changes what many hundreds of verses of Scriptures say. I would like to present some of those altered verses for your consideration. Continue reading “Are There Corrupting Changes In The New Bible Versions?”

The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.” Psalm 12:6-7
“A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.” Galatians 5:9
“Prove all things; hold fast to that which is good.” 1 Thessalonians 5:21
I used to dismiss the King James Version of the English Bible entirely. I thought of it as a ridiculous and outdated translation – an anachronism at best…and then I studied the history of current English Bible translations in great detail, and realized that ALL of the new versions use corrupt and purposely adulterated Greek manuscripts, which water down the eternal word of the living God…every last one of them. That Greek your pastor often refers to in church? It flows from corrupt Greek manuscripts first edited by the gnostic, self-castrating “scholar” Origen (and a student of his work, Eusebius), who believed in purgatory, universalism, that all human souls have existed from eternity past, that satan (and demons) would eventually be redeemed, and that Jesus did not actually return to earth in the flesh after his resurrection.

Do you use a modern Bible version? Have you ever wondered if the new Bibles are trustworthy? Maybe you should!

Is It OK To Change The Bible?
The validity (or lack thereof) of the modern Bible versions is at the same time one of the most hotly debated topics, as well as one of the most purposefully ignored issues, among Christians of this generation. For many this subject is a non-issue; they don’t read their Bible that much any way and any alteration of contents would breeze by them unnoticed (they are spoon fed their portion from the pulpit and that suffices them). Others see this questioning of the new Bibles as grounds for going to war over the issue, and great heated debates ensue pitting one camp against another.
But my suggestion concerning this subject is that we all get in the same camp (the Lord’s camp!), so to speak, and examine this matter in the context of truth versus error. Not pitting opinion against opinion, but honestly asking the following: “Are there corrupting changes being made to the modern Bible versions? If so where are these alterations, where did they come from, and how are they affecting the belief system of the Body of Christ? Continue reading “Can We Trust The Modern Bible Versions?”
