Is the Jehovah's Witness "Bible" and the NIV" Bible" the same??

Posted on January 15, 2012 at 1:50 PM

In  response to my email regarding “Is the Jehovah's Witness "Bible" and the NIV" Bible" the same?” I received the following reply.  I responded to this email.  I am sending my response as a learning tool and for "spiritual growth."  I am asking if anyone does not want to receive email from me, please let me know and I will not send anymore. I have removed the name and age of the person who sent this email to protect their identity.  God bless!


Was the King James Bible the First one written inspired by GOD?  What language was the first bible written in?  Why do ALL religions claim to only be inspired by GOD?  I am a[00] year old [person] born into a Baptist family in Detroit and raise in the church.  I have spent the majority of my life traveling to different countries and parts of this great county.  Every religion I've studied with say the same thing.  "Ours is the truth" Believe in your studies, but I can't believe everyone that don't study the KJV will not be chosen.  Most people think they are going to heaven when it clearly state only 244,000 will assist rule with Jesus in heaven.  On one hand we talk of the goodness of our father.  What father would want or let their children suffer for all eternity.  A merciful, loving, just father would destroy their children before letting them suffer.  I would never fault anyone for practicing their belief in GOD.  Tho shall not kill. Baptist will find a way to justify fighting in wars.  You have a blessed day.

Pastor May’s response:

Dear [Brother/Sister]XXXXXXXX:  It is obvious that you are offended by my email; therefore I will remove you from the list.  However, as a man of God, who does not want to see you perish, I must address some of the clams you made with the truth.  I know the truth sometimes hurt, however I encourage you to look up these facts and if I am wrong by no means correct me with facts.  The belief you described are of the Watch Tower Bible Tract Society (Jehovah's Witnesses).

 I will answer your questions in the order you presented them. 

Q-What language was the first bible written in?            

 A-The first human author to write down the biblical record was Moses.  He wrote it in his native language, Hebrew. Almost all of the Old Testament was written in Hebrew during the thousand years of its composition. But a few chapters in the prophecies of Ezra and Daniel and one verse in Jeremiah were written in a language called Aramaic. This language became very popular in the ancient world and actually displaced many other languages. Aramaic even became the common language spoken in Israel in Jesus' time, and it was likely the language He spoke day by day. Some Aramaic words were even used by the Gospel writers in the New Testament.

The New Testament, however,was written in Greek. This seems strange, since you might think it would be either Hebrew or Aramaic. However, Greek was the language of scholarship during the years of the composition of the New Testament from 50 to 100 AD. The fact is that many Jews could not even read Hebrew anymore, and this disturbed the Jewish leaders a lot! So, around 300 BC a translation of the Old Testament from Hebrew into Greek was undertaken, and it was completed around 200 BC.Gradually this Greek translation of the Old Testament, called the Septuagint,was widely accepted and was even used in many synagogues. 

The earliest copies of parts of the Hebrew Old Testament were discovered in 1947. They are part of the famous Dead Sea Scrolls and actually date back to the first century BC. Even though they are at least 900 years older than any parts of the Bible we had before this,they are not the originals. They are copies. The originals have all been lost or destroyed. But we are not at all doubtful that we may not have the original text. Copying by scribes was done with great care in those days and because the text was regarded as sacred, the copyists were extremely painstaking. Today some 5000 hand-copied documents exist of all or part of the Bible, and they agree in 98% of the text! No other ancient writing has this amount of underlying support with such amazing agreement as to the text.

 The Jehovah's Witnesses was begun by Charles Taze Russell in 1872. He was born on February 16, 1852, the son of Joseph L. and Anna Eliza Russell. He had great difficulty in dealing with the doctrine of eternal hell fire and in his studies came to deny not only eternal punishment, but also the Trinity, the deity of Christ, the person hood of the Holy Spirit, Jesus' physical resurrection, and salvation by grace through faith.  When Russell was 18, he organized a Bible class in Pittsburgh,Pennsylvania.  In 1879 he sought to popularize his aberrant ideas on doctrine.  He co-published The Herald of the Morning magazine with its founder, N. H. Barbour and by 1884 Russell controlled the publication and renamed it The Watchtower Announcing Jehovah's Kingdom, and founded Zion's Watch Tower Tract Society (now known as the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society)

Russell claimed that the Bible could be only understood according to his interpretations. A dangerous arrangement since he controlled what was written in the Watchtower magazine.  This kind of assertion is typical among leaders of cult religions.

The Watchtower organization has claimed to be the prophet of God (The Watchtower, April 1, 1972, p. 197) yet it has made numerous false prophecies. The Bible says in Deut. 18:20-22, "‘However,the prophet who presumes to speak in my name a word that I have not commanded him to speak or who speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet must die.  And in case you should say in your heart: "How shall we know the word that Jehovah has not spoken?"  When the prophet speaks in the name of Jehovah and the word does not occur or come true, that is the word that Jehovah did not speak..."  Just to list a few of them;

1877 'The End Of This World; that is the end of the gospel and the beginning of the millennial age is nearer than most men suppose; indeed we have already entered the transition period, which is to be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation Dan.12:3." (N.H. Barbour and C.T. Russell, Three Worlds, and the Harvest of This World, p. 17).

•             1899 "...the ‘battle of the great day of God Almighty' (Revelation 16:14),which will end in A.D. 1914 with the complete overthrow of earth's present ruler ship, is already commenced." (The Time Is at Hand, page 101 - 1908edition).

•             1918 "Therefore we may confidently expect that 1925 will mark the return of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the faithful prophets of old, particularly those named by the Apostle in Hebrews 11, to the condition of human perfection."(Millions Now Living Will Never Die, page 89.)

•             1922 "The date 1925 is even more distinctly indicated by the Scriptures than 1914." (The Watchtower 9/1/22, page 262.)

•             1923 "Our thought is, that 1925 is definitely settled by the Scriptures.As to Noah, the Christian now has much more upon which to base his faith than Noah had upon which to base his faith in a coming deluge." (The Watchtower, PAGE 106 4/1/23.)

•             1931 "There was a measure of disappointment on the part of Jehovah's faithful ones on earth concerning the years 1917, 1918, and 1925, which disappointment lasted for a time...and they also learned to quit fixing dates." (Vindication, page 338.)

•             1941 "Receiving the gift, the marching children clasped it to them, not a toy or plaything for idle pleasure, but the Lord's provided instrument for most effective work in the remaining months before Armageddon." (The Watchtower, 9/15/41, page 288.)

•             1968 "True, there have been those in times past who predicted an ‘end to the world', even announcing a specific date. Yet nothing happened. The ‘end' did not come. They were guilty October, 1914, and that likewise the overthrow of 'Christendom,' so-called, must be expected to immediately follow."(Studies in the Scriptures, Vol. 2, p. 245)

 After the death of Russell on Oct.31, 1916, a Missouri lawyer named Joseph Franklin Rutherford took over the presidency of the Watch Tower Society which was known then as the Dawn Bible Students Association. In 1931 he changed the name of the organization to"The Jehovah's Witnesses."

Russell taught and wrote that the Great Pyramid of Gaza was designed by Jehovah and was a blueprint to end-times chronology. This teaching was held by the Jehovah Witnesses till November 15th1928 when Judge Rutherford reversed the teaching calling it “Satan’s teaching.”

 Jehovah’s Witnesses (JW’s) are guided by what is printed in the Watchtower.  They cannot interpret the Bible on their own.  “From time to time, there have arisen from among the ranks of Jehovah's people those, who, like the original Satan, have adopted an independent, faultfinding attitude...They say that it is sufficient to read the Bible exclusively, either alone or in small groups at home. But,strangely, through such ‘Bible reading,' they have reverted right back to the apostate doctrines that commentaries by Christendom's clergy were teaching 100years ago..." The Watchtower, August 15, 1981.”     The Watchtower says that the Trinity, the deity of Christ, and the physical resurrection of Christ are all false doctrines.  Yet, the Watchtower says that if you read the Bible by itself you will end up believing these doctrines.  In other words, if you read the Bible by itself, then you will become a Trinitarian, believe that Jesus is God, and believe that Jesus rose from the dead physically.  Why is that?  Could it be because the Bible teaches these things?

In 1950, the Watch Tower Society came out with their own translation of the Bible, the New World Translation.Jehovah’s Witnesses are told that this translation is the most accurate,unbiased translation available. The Society claims that the New World Translation Committee was made up of highly trained Greek scholars who did their best to “transmit his [God’s] thoughts and declarations as accurately as possible.”18. However, when one endeavors to check into the credentials of these translators, one finds that the Society is unwilling to release this information, stating that the Committee desires that all the glory for this translation go to Jehovah God and therefore the translators desire to remain anonymous.

Over the years, further investigation has revealed who the translators of the New World Translation were, and the facts show that they were totally unqualified for the task of translation. Five of the six Watchtower Governing Body members who were on the Translation Committee had no formal training whatsoever in the Biblical languages. The fifth one, Fred Franz, (former Governing Body member and Watchtower president from 1977-1992) claimed to have some education, but in the Douglas Walsh Trial in Scotland, he gave this testimony under oath:

Tuesday,23rd November, 1954:

Frederick William Franz, Examined:

Q.Have you also made yourself familiar with Hebrew?

A. Yes....

Q. So that you have a substantial linguistic apparatus at yourcommand?

A. Yes, for use in my biblical work.

Q. I think you are able to read and follow the Bible in Hebrew, Greek,Latin, Spanish, Portuguese, German, and French?

A. Yes.

Q. It is the case, is it not, that in 1950 there was prepared and issuedwhat is called the New World Translation of the Christian Greek Scriptures?

A. Yes....

Q. I think that it was your duty, was it not, before the issue of that NewWorld Translation by your Society to check that translation for accuracy?

A. That is true.

Q. In light of your studies and in light of your knowledge?

A. That is true.

Q. And did you do so?

A. I did so....

Q. And was it your duty on behalf of the Society to check the translation into English from the original Hebrew of that first volume of the Old Testament Scriptures?

A. Yes....

Q. In so far as translation of the Bible itself is undertaken, are you responsible for that?

A. I have been authorised [authorized] to examine a translation and determine its accuracy and recommend its acceptance in the form in which it is submitted.

Q. Are the translators members of the Editorial Committee?

A. That is a question which I, as a member of the Board of Directors, am not authorised [authorized] to disclose....

Q. When did you go to the University?....

Q. Did you graduate?

A. No, I did not....

Q. Had you done any Hebrew in the course of your University work?

A. No, I had not, but in the course of my editorial work, my special research work for the president of the Society, I found it was very necessary to have knowledge of Hebrew, and so I undertook a personal study of that.


Wednesday,24th November, 1954:

Frederick William Franz, Cross Continued:

Q.You, yourself, read and speak Hebrew, do you?

A. I do not speak Hebrew.

Q. You do not?

A. No.

Q. Can you, yourself, translate that into Hebrew?

A. Which?

Q. That fourth verse of the Second Chapter of Genesis? A. You mean here?

Q. Yes?

A. No, I won’t attempt to do that.

— Douglas Walsh Trial, Pursuer’s Proof, 1954, pp. 7-9, 88, 91-92,102-103

This exercise which Franz was unable to do is something which the average first or second year Hebrew student could have accomplished without any difficulty. Is it any wonder the Society refuses to publicly reveal the people who were involved in the translation of their Bible? Would you put your trust in a doctor who refused to give his credentials? Yet, this is what many Jehovah’s Witnesses are doing when it comes to vital Bible truth.

Deuteronomy18:20-22 states:

“But the prophet who shall speak a word presumptuously in My name which I have not commanded him to speak,or which he shall speak in the name of other gods, that prophet shall die.And you may say in your heart, ‘How shall we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?’ When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.” 

If the NWT condemns false prophesying and states that it is proof that God is not speaking through that prophet, then doesn’t this prove that the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society is not speaking for God?

 Why do All religions claim to only be inspired by GOD? 

Most people do not research the history and the evidence of the “religion” that they join.  For the most part if you are born in a Muslim culture, you will be Muslim.  If you are born in a Jehovah’s Witness family, you will be Jehovah’s Witness, etc. Most African Americans live around African Americans, Caucasians, around Caucasians, Orientals around Orientals. 

Let’s examine the reason Christians“Christianity” believe their bible is the inspired Word of God.  There are many religious books in the world that have many good things to say, but only the Bible has fulfilled prophecies -- with more fulfillments to come.  The Bible has never been wrong in the past, and it won't be wrong in the future. It claims inspiration from God (2 Tim. 3:16). Since God is the creator of all things (Isaiah 44:24), then He is also the creator of time.  It is under His control.  Only God, then, would always be right about what is in the future, our future.

Fulfilled prophecy is strong evidence that God is the author of the Bible, because when you look at the mathematical odds of prophecy being fulfilled, you quickly see a design, a purpose, and a guiding hand behind the Bible.  The chance that any man might have lived down to the present time and fulfilled all eight prophecies is1 in 1017."  That would be 1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000.If just one prophecy failed, then we would know that God is not the true God,because the creator of all things, which includes time, would not be wrong about predicting the future.  Deut. 18:22 .  An example is Psalm 22:12-18.  This is a detailed description of the crucifixion -- 1000 years before Jesus was born.  There are over 1, 000 fulfilled prophecies in the bible, 333 alone about Jesus Christ.  And on top of that, crucifixion hadn't even been invented yet.

Research and find out how many other“religions” have fulfilled prophecies in their manuscripts. There are no fulfilled prophecies in the Qur'an, the Hindu Vedas, the Bhagavad-Gita, the sayings of Buddha and Confucius, or in the Book of Mormon.

Archaeological - There are also hundreds of archaeological findings that support the Christian bible. Archaeological A discoveries verify the historical reliability of the Old and New Testaments.  When compared to other religious books, the Bible is unique in that itis the oldest, as testified by the places, people, titles, and events mentioned in the Bible; and the language and literary formats used to compose the Bible.

Many scholars today question the validity of Biblical accounts, supposedly based on the findings of archeology.When the “discrepancies” are examined in detail, however it is found that the problems lie with the archeology (i.e. misinterpretation of evidence, lack of evidence, or poor scholarship) and not with the Bible.

Non-Christian Writers – There are Non-Christian historians and writers who talked about Jesus Christ.  Josephus (A.D. 37-100), the Jewish historian, would wrote a generation after Jesus Christ, makes several references to people well-known to New Testament readers.  “He wrote explicitly about Jesus:

"At this time there was a wise man who was called Jesus. . . . Pilate condemned Him to be condemned and to die.And those who had become His disciples did not abandon His discipleship. They reported that He had appeared to them three days after His crucifixion and that He was alive; accordingly, He was perhaps the Messiah concerning whom the prophets have recounted wonders" (Antiquities, 3, subtopic 3,Arabic text).

"Now, there was about this time, Jesus, a wise man, if it be lawful to call him a man, for he was a doer of wonderful works--a teacher of such men as receive the truth with pleasure.He drew ever to him both many of the Jews, and many Gentiles. He was the Christ; and when Pilate, at the suggestions of the principal men amongst us,had condemned him to be condemned and to the cross, those that loved him at the first did not forsake him, for he appeared to them alive again the third day,as the divine prophets had foretold these and the ten thousand other wonderful things concerning him; and the tribe of Christians, so named from him, are not extinct at this day" (Antiquities, 3, subtopic 3,Greek text). 

Josephus also wrote about James, the brother of Jesus.

"(Ananus) assembled the sanhedrin of the judges, and brought before them the brother of Jesus, the so-called Christ, whose name was James, and some others, and when he had formed an accusation against them as breakers of the law, he deliver them to be stoned" (Antiquities XX 9:1).

Pliny the Younger (c. A.D. 112), when writing to the emperor about his achievements as governor of Bithynia, wrote how he had killed multitudes of Christian men, women, and children. He wrote:

"All who denied that they were or had been Christians I consider should be discharged, because they called upon the gods at my dictation and did reverence, with incense and wine, your[the emperor's] image . . . they curse Christ, which a genuine Christian cannot be induced to do" (Epistles, X.96).

He also wrote in the same letter:

"[Christians} were in the habit of meeting on a certain fixed day before it was light, when they sang inalternate verse of a hymn to Christ as to a god, and bound themselves to a solemn oath, not to do any wicked deeds, and never to deny a truth when they should be called upon to deliver it up."

Thallus (c. A.D. 52) was a Samaritan-born historian. Julius Africanus (c. A.D. 221) wrote:

"Thallus, in the third book of his histories, explains away this darkness [at the time of the crucifixion] as an eclipse of the sun-unreasonably, as it seems to me."

This was unreasonable, of course,because a solar eclipse could not take place at the time of the full moon, and it was the time of the paschal full moon when Christ died.   There are many more non-Christian writers who wrote about Jesus Christ.

It clearly state only 244,000 will assist rule with Jesus in heaven!

The Watchtower organization states that through good works and sincere effort only 144,000 elite JW’s will go to heaven. The 144,000 are mentioned in two chapters in the Bible: Revelation 7& 14. By looking at the verses it is obvious that the 144,000 are literal Jews of the ancient tribes with no Gentiles among them (7:4-8). They are all males (14:4) and virgins (14:4). If the JW states that the usage of Jewish male virgins is figurative, what gives them the right to state that number of144,000 is literal? { The Christian Bible says, "6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever".Psalm 23:6; - 1Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.  2In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.  John 14:1-3

 In regards to salvation for JW’s,according to the Watchtower Organization, Feb. 15, 1983, p. 12, there are four requirements for salvation as taught by the Watchtower magazine, “the second requirement more difficult. It is to obey God’s laws.”  Are you keeping all of God’s laws?  If not, then how can you have salvation?

Christianity teaches that those who believe in Jesus Christ that he took the punishment for our sins.  Because God is just, and must punish sin; Jesus took our punishment for us.  How is this possible?  You stated you traveled around the world.  Let’s say you were in a foreign country with a small child (son/daughter), and he/she picked up a rock and threw it at the prince (king, warlord etc.) and hit him in the forehead.  His guards ran out and grabbed you small child and they demanded he be punished on the spot, with fifty lashes with a cane.  This punishment would kill your child.  Would you not tell the king that you were the father, and would take his punishment to save his life, even offering your life for his?

Someone was stealing food from the Kings pantry.  The King declared that anyone caught stealing food would get 50 lashes with a whip.  The King got word that his guards caught the person stealing.  He demanded that the guards take the offender to the court so that he could make him an example for all.  When they brought out the defendant, the King discovered that it was his mother.  Everyone wanted to see if the King would keep his word.  Was he a just king?   The king walked down where the punishment was to be administered, took off his shirt, and told the guards to administer his mother's punishment to him. {Christianity believes that there is nothing you can do to earn or merit your way into heaven.  It is given by God's grace. "8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  9 Not of works, lest any man should boast." Ephesians 2:8-9.}

On one hand we talk of the goodness of our father.  What father would want or let their children suffer for all eternity?

I encourage you to read the New World Translation Exodus 34:7.  God is merciful, therefore he doesn’t want to punish us, however, he is just therefore he must punish sin.  “Maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation. "Exodus 34:7.NLT

 If someone killed you[r] wife/child,what kind of justice would you want?  Since He does not leave the guilty unpunished; what happens if a person rapes, robs, steals, kills and never get caught hear on earth.  When does he get his punishment?  Since we are talking about “salvation,” if God were not just, when everybody died they would spend eternity with God.  There is a claim that there is no eternal fire,however, how long has the sun been burning?  Scientist claim that it has been burning over 5 billion years. God’s punishment is eternal because He is eternal, just like his grace (salvation) is also eternal.  (For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23). Just one sin is punishable by death.

 Thou shall not kill.  Baptist will find a way to justify fighting in wars. 

If you understand the bible, God did justify certain wars (killings) and his enemies were destroyed.  However, unjustified murder is sin regardless who commits it.  From God’s eyesight,sin is sin, (For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23).  Which is the greater sin, to murder someone or claim that you are a prophecy of God, and mislead people to their death, when in fact they fail the basic test of prophecy, Deuteronomy18:20-22

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way,the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  John14:6.  God bless!



Date: Sunday, February 5, 2012, 8:03 AM

Pastor James A. May:

A member of the National Association of Christian Ministers posed a question about scripture verses in the King James Version (KJV) of the bible that are missing (yes totally missing) from the New International Version (NIV) There are numerous scriptures that have attempted to removed Jesus and deity of God from the NIV bible that should be noted by every Christian.  These scriptures are comparable to the New World Translation (Jehovah's Witnesses"Bible"). An example is one of the scriptures I use when witnessing:

John 6:47 "He that believeth on me (Jesus) hath everlasting life."  The NIV left out the "me"(Jesus)

John6:47 King James Version (KJV) 47 Verily, verily, I say unto you,He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. John 6:47 New International Version (NIV)47 Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life. Believes in what? 

It is important that you read the entire article and be guided by the Holy Spirit. Below is the article from  I copied most of it and put it in this email.  God bless!



Several readers have asked me this question so I thought it worthwhile to include my response here. Please note that these are only WHOLE verses that the NIV deletes. This list does not include the many words and phrases that were completely deleted from the NIV--it deletes over 64,000 words including words like mercy seat, Jehovah, and Godhead. It removes meaningful, well-known Bible words like Calvary, Lucifer, new testament, regeneration, etc. Most of the modern Bibles line up very closely with the NIV--and so does the New World Translation--the Bible of the Jehovah's Witnesses which predates the NIV!

When you read below where I say that a verse is COMPLETELY deleted, I mean clean/bald-headed/gone/vanished deleted. For instance, if you search for Acts 8:37 in the NIV you will read,

36 As they traveled along the road,they came to some water and the eunuch said, "Look, here is water. Why shouldn't I be baptized?"

38And he ordered the chariot to stop. Then both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water and Philip baptized him.

Verse 37 is CLEAN, BALD-HEADED,GONE, VANISHED, MY FRIENDS (and it is a powerful verse)! Some foolish people have written me saying, "But it says something in the footnotes." I have three responses. (1) When you are reading your Bible do you look at the footnotes after every verse? Do you say "I am reading verse 3 so let me look below and see if something in verse 3 is missing."? Even if you did do that (which you don't) the footnotes say that the "best manuscripts"don't have the verse--will you then agree with them that the verse doesn't belong? If not, then why are you reading an NIV? [Note: Not everyone believes that those "older" manuscripts are authentic.] (2) Not all the word deletions are found in the footnotes of the NIV so don't think for a second that they are letting you know all the changes they made. (3) The next logical step will be for the NIV to omit the footnotes and just reorder everything. In the example above verse 38would become verse 37 so it wouldn't look funny. Look at the J.B. Phillips translation--that heretick didn't number the individual verses so you don't know what you're missing. It's paragraph style. The NIV may go that way too. They are desensitizing you to the changing of the very words of God. In summary, they'll either renumber or go to that paragraph format.

Wait a minute, hold the presses! I got the following from Bill W. one of our dear readers:

"I was in the Christian Book store today. I saw something that shocked me. I look through the Bibles often. I looked at the Children's NIV. I looked up the missing verses and there was something I could not believe. I looked up Matt 17:21 and of course it is missing BUT in this Children's Bible it was typed out like this 20/21 and the 21st verse was still missing. They make you think that you read the 21st verse but it still is just the 20th verse! Can you believe it???!!! If you want to look for yourself find the CHILDREN'S NIV BIBLE, and see for yourself. I did look in the other NIV's to see if they did the same thing. They DID NOT do that, BUT how long before they do?????!"

They are already sneaking the deletions into the children's Bibles! This is the second time that I've heard of those foxes pulling one over on little helpless children. The other thing I've seen them do is re translate the kids' and prisoners' Bibles to make them gender neutral. Of course those foxes didn't market them that way, they just "snuck" in the gender inclusively. See this article for details.

Another update! I just opened the JW "Bible", the New World Translation (1961 ed.), and looked up all the verses that the NIV completely deletes. THE JEHOVAH'S WITNESS BIBLE DELETES THE EXACT SAME ONES!!!! I mean ALL of them! The only difference between the NIV and the New World Translation deletions is that the JW Bible does not include any footnotes! Isn't that what I said above, that the NIV would eventually delete the footnotes? To learn more about the Jehovah's Witnesses and their damnable doctrines go to our article on cults.

Our illiterate, lazy culture has spilled over to many professing Christians who have embraced the ways of the sluggard (and their want shall come upon them as an armed man). They are willing to read a Satanic "Bible" version missing what God says so they can be lazy and not do their due diligence. Your modern Bible perversion was written by men using dynamic equivalence. In other words, they are telling you their interpretation and their doctrine--Not what the manuscripts really say. Don't believe me? Look at the article on the NIV using gender inclusive language. Gender inclusively wasn't in the "originals"--it is a modern, feminist concept born of REBELLION.

A number of brothers and sisters,after examining the facts, have said, "I'm getting a King James!"Many have shared what a blessing the King James Bible has been to them and their spiritual life. The King James isn't hard. I've seen one and two year olds quoting it and I am not exaggerating. I've taught it to people who cannot read and to children whose second language is English. I actually find the modern Bibles more difficult to read than the King James.

If you read a modern Bible, don't let your pride get in the way of really looking at this information. Some people get hostile because I'm sharing these facts. Look up the verses and see that what you call the Bible is not the Bible. Get a real Bible. The King James conformable to the edition of 1611--NOT the New King James or the KJ21, etc.they are not King James Bibles.

WHOLE Bible verses deleted in the NIV

The following WHOLE verses have been removed in the NIV--whether in the text or footnotes...over 40 IN ALL!!!

Matthew 12:47 -- removed in the footnotes

What are you NIV readers missing?What does the real Bible say?

"For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one."

This is one of the GREATEST verses testifying of the trinity. That is why the Jehovah's Witnesses leave it out.They do not believe in the trinity and they do not believe that Jesus is God.Why does the NIV leave it out...? Whole books have been written on the manuscript evidence that supports inclusion of this verse in the Bible. Reader,do you believe in the trinity of God? If so, then this deletion should offend you. People are wresting and perverting the scriptures to their own destruction.
