Just as what we watch on television or look at on the computer is important to discern, so is the "version" of the Bible we read. God's Word is our authority on life; it is a powerful, living Book. There are 66 books in the Bible, the Old Testament containing 39 books and the New Testament containing 27 books. The Holy Bible is our compass, our "Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth". It was penned by man through inspiration of God. Your Holy Bible should be your most prized possession!
Proverbs 30:5 - “Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.”
Modern bible "versions" are taking away the deity of Christ and "watering down" the gospel message. Satan has been changing God's Words from the very beginning when he deceived Eve and he's still changing it today. Beware! God warned of this very thing - 2Timothy 4:3-4 - "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables."
Are you being fooled into thinking that the New King James Version “is easier to read” and “only removes the archaic Old English thees and thous”? The NKJV omits the word “Lord” 66 times; omits the word “God” 51 times; omits the word “heaven” 50 times – just to name only a few of the revisions. Why would God's true Word remove His name? and remove "heaven"?
The Antichrist will use the NEW VERSIONS to set up his One World New Age Religion, with its mark and worship of the Antichrist and the dragon.
The NIV is the Bible for the coming One World Religion. That's why God warned us so we would be aware of Satan's deception. Satan is the father of lies! Do your homework ... it DOES matter which version of the Bible you read and hide in your heart!
