Truth Or Falsehood: Is The NIV Version Of The Holy Bible Anti-Christ

Published by Nairaland on Sun, 12 Jul 2015


I came across this thread that left me alarmed and sweating because the NIV is my favourite translation and it is what i read 95% of the time: christaddicted:If you own a New International Version (NIV). Did you know that it was written by Zondervan and they are OWNED by Harper Collins, who also publish the The Satanic Bible, and The Joy of Gay Sex.NIV has removed 64,575 words from the Bible including Jehovah, Calvary, Holy Ghost and omnipotent to name but a few... NIV has also removed 45 complete verses. Most of us have the Bible on our phones. Try and find these scriptures under NIV on your phone right now if you don't believe me: Matthew 17:21 - Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.Matthew 18:11 - For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. Matthew 23:14 - Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.Mark 7:16 - If any man have ears to hear, let him hear.Mark 9:44 - Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.Luke 17:36 - Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.Luke 23:17 - (For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)John 5:4 - For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.Acts 8:37 - And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.You will not believe your eyes. These verses are not in NIV bible!!! Let's not forget what the Word says in John10:10 #KingJamesVersion http://www.nairaland.com/2442956/absolutely-shocking-all-christians-mustI was alarmed, especially when I cross-checked my own copy of the NIV bible and discovered it was true. But then, another Nairalander countered the above with this:Gombs:Well, there are a list of Bible verses in the New Testament that are present in the King James Version (KJV) but absent from some Bible translations completed after the publication of The New Testament in the Original Greek in 1881 and the later Novum Testamentum Graece (first published in 1898 and revised many times since that date). These editions of the Greek text took into account early manuscripts of the New Testament which had not been available to translators before the 19th century, notably those of the Alexandrian text-type . The verses are present in the New King James Version , published in 1979, as well as the New American Standard Bible , though for most verses these translations include footnotes indicating doubts about their authenticity.Most modern textual scholars consider these verses interpolations , or additions by later authors, but exceptions include advocates of the Byzantine or Majority Text and of the Received Text . When a verse is omitted, later ones in the same chapter retain their traditional numbering. Apart from omitted entire verses, there are other omitted words and phrases in some modern translations such as the famous Comma Johanneum.In particular these specific verses you quoted are not in the New International Version (NIV) main text. For some of the verses, there is a possible reasoning for "omission".Note: In the New International Version, those verses are absent from the main text, but have been translated for inclusion in the footnotes(fn).NIV is generally in agreement with the Nestle-Aland editions of the Greek New Testament which relegate such verses to the margin.Update: The NIV2011 no longer has some of the verses that were included in footnotes in the 1984 and previous versions of the NIV.For example Matthew 17:21KJV: Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.NIVfn: But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.NIV2011fn: Some manuscripts include here words similar to Mark 9:29.I think we ought to find out reasons for some things we do not understand, especially in the Bible. Isn't it strange that Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, Pastor Kumuiyi, Pastor E. A. Adeboye etc still uses the NIV in their devotionals' We can't claim they were ignorant of the fact some texts were missing (used in footnotes)As many that may have believed the message some of us help spread , for example, shredding their NIV, me thinks we need correct the error of that message. Some people will build an ideology about the NIV, whereas there was no need for it.As for publishers, those guys are a publishing company, and can publish as much books as they like. For example, LWPM publishes the ROR Bible, a KJV Bible... If LWPM suddenly starts publishing x rated books, will you call KJV devilish and blasphemous'Let's be cautious... Not being babies tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine. AmenStop helping the devil spread his propaganda.http://www.nairaland.com/2430755/disregard-all-messages-social-media#35732940I was relieved, and a bit confused. This comment by another Nairalander on the same thread added to the befuddlement:MrPresident1:Ishi, there is no relief yet, we have been shouting about the authenticity of latter day Bible translations and the motives for their production and circulation for a while now, hopefully a few more people will do their own research and get to their own conclusions, everyone will not see it yet, but blessed is the one who is able to make the connection, because it is the first step out of slavery. The NIV Bible is heavily doctored and compromised, is it when they publish the gay Bible that my people will wake up from their slumber' It may just be too late by then.The Bible is written in figurative language; deep allegories, metaphors, etc. It was never meant to be literal, or literal interpretations are the very first steps, remember Paul warned about the dichotomy of milk and milk and the Proverbs tell us about understanding the dark sayings of old. The NIV compromised Bible in its fake and dubious attempt to make the Bible literal (purportedltyto make it easier to understand) has heavily doctored and watered the Holy Scriptures to suit an evil agenda, this is a very serious attempt to hide the truth of God's nature, and it is a direct attack against God. See how the KJV and NIV renders this verse:Isaiah 45:1 KJVThus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;Isaiah 45:1-7New International Version (NIV)45 'This is what the Lord says to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of to subdue nations before him and to strip kings of their armor, to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut:Look at how KJV renders the verse, pay close attention I know you are very good with English, you will realise that 'loosening the loins of kings, and opening the two leaved gates' is figurative language for the effect of fear that now causes one to lose control over ones bowels. God is telling Cyrus that He will put Cyrus' fear in the nations he would subdue.Now compare with the rubbish NIV has interpreted. This is one of many.Daniel told us that the wise will understand.http://www.nairaland.com/2430755/disregard-all-messages-social-media#35740192Now, with all these arguments and counter-arguments, I am wondering what to believe. I however wonder why anything should be omitted from the bible.Let's discuss.
