you can see for yourself what the ecumenical modernists have done to
the Words of God. In their Greek then modernist English they twisted
357 verses so perversely that 16 were completely eliminated from their
bibles. This book illustrates the 357 Scriptures as they were in the
original Greek and English, and as they now appear in modernist
versions, making it a valuable reference for any Bible student.

Baptist, above all others, base all their faith and practice only on the words of the Holy Scriptures. When critical modernists mess with the words they are messing with our faith and practice. It is better to learn that 'thee' is the 2nd person singular of 'you' and 'thou' is its subjective case than to have a sinister textual critic mess with your faith and practice.
Four superior reason are given and illustrated in this treatise:
The King James Bible Translation uses Superior Texts
The King James Bible Translation uses Superior Translators
The King James Bible Translation uses Superior Techniques
The King James Bible Translation uses Superior Theology
If you use a modernist bible you should know that it has
SIGNIFICANT DEVIATIONS from the HOLY BIBLE.
In order to secure a copyright on a new bible translation it must be demonstrated legally that there are SIGNIFICANT DEVIATIONS from any previous work. The races to get copyrights on so many SIGNIFICANT DEVIATIONS has been so intense that now the NIV is proposing a (per)version that changes Father God to Mother God, just to secure another lucrative copyright on what used to be GODS uncopyright WORDS. Shame on Ecumenical Modernists. Stay away from their bibles and bad doctrine. Their SIGNIFICANT DEVIATIONS have allowed them to get several copyrights, but they ended up significantly deviant to God's Holy Bible. There is only one Holy Bible, and it has no copyright held by mere man.
Modernist Bibles have MAJOR OMISSIONS
It is proven by scholars and accepted by liberals, modernists and even by many popular fundamentalists like Charles Stanley, John MacArther ++, that Matt 17:21 is not supposed to be in my Bible. Should you take your pen knife and cut it out? Would you? You would have to also cut Matt 18:11, 23:14, Mark 7:16, 9:44 & 46, 11:26, 15:28, Luke 17:36, 23:17, John 5:4, Acts 8:37, 15:34, 24:7, 28:29, Rom 16:24, Col 1:14 "Through His Blood", 1John 5:7. (Look carefully at I John 5:7, they built a false verse from verse 8 so you wouldn't notice this most critical exclusion!)
"ALL SCHOLARS AGREE" "Take these verses out of the bibles,..." Baptists will not do it! We will hold to the KJV.
The NIV NT has 64,000 words less than the King James Bible's NT! Baptists will not use it. We will hold to the KJV
Why I shall Study, Preach and Teach ONLY from the
King James Bible Translation.
REASON #1 I preach and teach in the English Language. The King James Bible is the only English translation of the Bible translated from the Byzantine copied Greek Text, later called the Textus Receptus, and the Masoretic Hebrew text. Very simply the Greek manuscripts of the New Testament come from one of three sources, the Alexandrian family , the Western family or the Byzantine family. The Alexandrian copies are marked by major omissions and were corrupted by Egypt, symbolic of the world, the Western copies are marked by major additions, and were corrupted by the hands of Roman Catholicism, symbolic of religion and mystery Babylon, and the Byzantine copies were preserved by Eastern Orthodox monks believing in verbal inspiration, symbolic of orthodoxy. Modernists of the late 1700s to today wishing to apply critical criticism to the Bible wanted to blend these three families of texts into one polluted text that would please all the ecumenical constituents. The publishing of the King James Bible translation of 1611 and the Greek Textus Receptus upon which it stood angered Satan, the world, (Egypt- Alexandrian) and the religious (Roman-Western). Today the King James Bible Translation is the ONLY English Bible based on the Byzantine family of manuscripts and the Masoretic Hebrew manuscripts. No modernist version of the Bible use these two pure sources. The King James Bible translation used a Superior Text. The modernist's bibles use inferior texts.
REASON #2 I believe in the Verbal Inspiration of God in these scriptures which have been translated to the English language. Every translator of the King James Bible knew for certain that they were translating the very words of God. No modernist version of the Bible assembled a team of such believers to accomplish their translation. None! The King James Bible translation used Superior Translators. The modernist's bibles used inferior translators.
REASON #3 I believe in the verbal Plenary inspiration of God in these scriptures which have been painstakingly translated to the English language. Every word of the manuscript text was meticulously examined and translated into English, noun for noun, verb for verb, pronoun for pronoun, adjective for adjective, adverb for adverb, predicate for predicate, and preposition for preposition. Where such meticulous translation was not possible italicized lettering was used to signify the necessitated departure from the exact words of the original. There was no use of 'dynamic equivalence' which gives translators room for their opinions. No modernist version of the Bible used such meticulous translation techniques, all used liberal measure of 'dynamic equivalence.' 'Dynamic', to change, 'equivalence' to remain the same, is a contradictory term from the father of contradictions. As Dr. D.A. Waite says, the King James Bible translation used Superior Techniques. All modernist's bibles used inferior techniques.
REASON #4 I believe in the systematic continuity of the Bible and its theology across all 66 books, all of its 1189 chapters, all of its 31,101 verses, and all of its 783,137 English words. This tremendous symmetry of theology is captured in holistic verbal translation of the King James Bible. When some preacher, or even an unordained scholar says "A better English translation for this is ..." They are saying "I think myself scholarly enough, ordained enough and endowed enough to improve on the holistic verbal English translation that was accomplished in the 1611 authorized King James Bible." No, you might find clarity and insight with a dictionary or lexicon but you will not find a 'better English translation' which conveys with symmetry the systematic dispensational theology of this tremendous English translation. The King James Bible translation used Superior Theology. The modernist's bibles use inferior theologies.
These are 4 powerful reasons for sticking only with a King James Bible Translation. Let's now contrast the pure words of God with some of the modernist's bibles and illustrate these four categories of their error.
Psalm 19:7 ¶ The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. 8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. 9 The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. 10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. 11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.
Psalm 68: 11 The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it. Prov 15:26 The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD: but the words of the pure are pleasant words.
What do Modernist Ecumenical Bibles Say about the
WORDS OF GOD
|Psalm 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. (The Holy Bible)||6 The promises of the LORD are promises that are pure, silver refined in a furnace on the ground, purified seven times. RSV|
|7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever. (The Holy Bible)||7 Do thou, O LORD, protect us, guard us ever from this generation. RSV|
|Psalm 100:5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations. (The Holy Bible)||5 For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures for ever, and his faithfulness to all generations. RSV|
|Prov 22:12 ¶ The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge, and he overthroweth the words of the transgressor.||12 ¶ The eyes of the LORD keep watch over knowledge, but he overthrows the words of the faithless. RSV|
Examine some more verses about the WORDS OF GOD
Isaiah 40:8 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever
Matt 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
1Pet 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. 24 ¶ For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away: 25 But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
About the PRESERVATION OF THE WORDS
Deut 31:24 And it came to pass, when Moses had made an end of writing the words of this law in a book, until they were finished, 25 That Moses commanded the Levites, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, saying, 26 Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee.
The INSPIRATION of the WORDS is well covered in other material.

Good Samaritan Baptist Church uses only the Authorized King James Bible.
We will not use any modern versions in our worship, study or devotions. Why?
We believe the Scriptures are verbally
inspired by God and infallible in the original writings and in the
faithfully, accurately copied and available received text. (called the
Textus Receptus, Ecclesiastical Text, Traditional Text, Majority Text,
and/or the Byzantine Text). That there is a preservation of this
inerrancy guarded by God and passed on in the TR text (i.e. the Textus
Receptus and the Masoretic Hebrew Text.) (Psalms 12:6-7, Matthew
5:18-19). We believe that the Scriptures are the supreme and final
authority in faith, life, and practice (2Timothy 3:16,17; 2Peter 1:21).
We believe that the Alexandrian Texts used to compile the Nestles
Critical Greek 'bible' have unjustified deletions of Scripture verses
and is not a proper basis for a Bible Translation (i.e. ASV, NASB, NAB,
RSV). We further believe that the 'free translations' and the
'paraphrase translations' of the Bible (i.e. NIV, GNB, MLB, NEB, JB,
PME, LB) contain translators interpretations and are not suitable for
readings or teachings in a local Church. In that they call themselves
'The Holy Bible' they deceive Christians and their many contradictions
and deletions bring the doctrine of infallibility directly under
attack. We, therefore, believe that the King James Bible is currently
the only English Bible to be used in any Church teaching and preaching
application, and represents the only complete and accurate Holy Bible
for English speaking people to date.
