1st Kings 3:16-27, “Then came there two women, that were harlots, unto the king, and stood before him. And the one woman said, O my lord, I and this woman dwell in one house; and I was delivered of a child with her in the house. And it came to pass the third day after that I was delivered, that this woman was delivered also: and we were together; there was no stranger with us in the house, save we two in the house. And this woman's child died in the night; because she overlaid it. And she arose at midnight, and took my son from beside me, while thine handmaid slept, and laid it in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom. And when I rose in the morning to give my child suck, behold, it was dead: but when I had considered it in the morning, behold, it was not my son, which I did bear. And the other woman said, Nay; but the living is my son, and the dead is thy son. And this said, No; but the dead is thy son, and the living is my son. Thus they spake before the king. Then said the king, The one saith, This is my son that liveth, and thy son is the dead: and the other saith, Nay; but thy son is the dead, and my son is the living. And the king said, Bring me a sword. And they brought a sword before the king. And the king said, Divide the living child in two, and give half to the one, and half to the other. Then spake the woman whose the living child was unto the king, for her bowels yearned upon her son, and she said, O my lord, give her the living child, and in no wise slay it. But the other said, Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it. Then the king answered and said, Give her the living child, and in no wise slay it: she is the mother thereof.”
This is an amazing true story. Two women both made claim to one baby. King Solomon was given the responsibility to determine who the real mother was. Who was lying? Who was telling the truth? The fake mother, the one who was lying, wanted the child divided and killed. But the real mother pleaded with Solomon to let the other woman have the child, to spare its life. She begged the king not to dissect her baby. That clearly evidenced to Solomon who the genuine mother was—the one who didn't want the child divided.
I think this is a perfect illustration of the Bible version debate today. According to the American Bible Society, there are approximately 900 English Bible revisions (in part or whole) in existence. The Devil's crowd of reprobates keep crying: “Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it!” They claim we don't have an infallible Bible today that is without error. They say that neither you, nor I, can have it. They say a perfect Bible doesn't exist anymore, and that only the ancient “original autographs” were perfect. The problem is that there are no originals anymore. Those Hebrew, Chaldean and Greek manuscripts are not here today! So if the Neo-evangelical crowd are right that we don't have an infallible Bible today, then we absolutely cannot claim to have God's Word.
Honestly, if you'll just take a few moments to think about it dear friend—it is utterly foolish and an insult to the Lord—to even entertain the thought that our great, omniscient (all knowing), omnipotent (all powerful), omnibenevolent (all loving), omnisapient (all wise) and omnipresent (all present) God wasn't even able to give us a perfect Bible today. The very thought that we don't have an infallible Bible anymore is totally inconsistent with God's character and promise. The Lord solemnly promised in Psalms 12:6-7 to preserve and keep His PURE WORDS forever. Yet, every modern Devil's Bible version removes this promise, changing it to God protects His saints instead of His pure Words.
God Is Not The Author Of Confusion
The following Bible verse distances God from the whole Bible publishing craze. 1st Corinthians 14:33, “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” With literally HUNDREDS of English Bible versions available—something to fit every occasion imaginable under the sun—God would never author such utter confusion, leaving humanity at the mercy of greedy and unscrupulous men. There are all sorts of categories of Bible versions available for purchase today, but God only authored ONE BOOK! Some Bibles are paraphrases of men's opinion of what God said. Others claim to adhere to strict literal interpretation (which they certainly do not, except for the trustworthy King James Bible).
Something is very wrong with America's pastors, clergy and Bible professors. One of the most fascinating and astounding facts of human civilization is how easily deceived humans are. Humans are so predictably predictable! Perhaps there is no greater example of this deception, than the relationship between the American newsmedia and public. The U.S. mainstream newsmedia are infamous liars and deceivers! The following video kept getting removed from YouTube, so I saved it to my own ministry website (40 MB MP4 video).
The preceding video so clearly shows how the American people are continually deceived by the controlled media. There is one source of news, and they all repeat the talking points like parrots. There is no real honest news reporting in America, only carefully fabricated manipulative propaganda intended to shape public opinion. Fox News is anything but honest news; they are controlled opposition. By controlling both the perceived left and right paradigms, the Luciferian elite keep America a house divided.
The King James Bible Was Honestly Translated
There are no English words available to express much of the Greek language. That is because the Greek is so exact. God knew what He was doing. In computer science, it would be like writing a C++ computer language, which is less expressive than binary (all 1's and 0's). Binary is machine code, pure computer programming. C++ is a mid level language, commonly used for writing video games. I used to mess with C++ for fun on my computer many years ago. I don't have the patience for computer programming, but I do have the patience for anything relating to my website ministry, knowing it is for the Lord. And then you have computer languages like Visual Basic, which is a higher level language for writing apps.
So English is not as expressive as the KOINE Greek. For example: We only have one English word to describe “Hell.” But in the Greek language in the Bible, you have numerous different words: Hades, Gehenna and Tartarus. When the 54 King James Bible translators were translating, they oftentimes couldn't convey the Greek into English without adding some words to clarify the meaning. This shows how honest these 54 men were in translating God's Word. In comparison, there is not even one modern Bible revision that does this. Instead, one or two Bozos will sit down and torture the Word of God, taking it upon themselves to add to the Bible, which is a serious sin (Deuteronomy 4:2; Proverbs 30:5-6). You simply cannot trust the modern Bible revisions! A more expensive King James Bible will contain the italicized words. The italics simply let you, the reader, know that those words were not in the original manuscript, but were added necessarily for clarity.
The Dishonesty Of The Devil's Modern Bible Revisions
In sharp contrast, consider the Easy-To Read Version (ERV), which adds to the Word of God in Mark 1:15b. Whereas the King James Bible simply says, “Repent ye, and believe the Gospel”; the corrupt ERV changes it to: “Change your hearts and lives, and believe the Good News!” The translators ASS-U-ME that “repent” (verb: metanoeo) here means to change your heart and life. In fact, this Greek verb simply means: “to think differently.” The ERV adds to what God said. We are commanded to think differently and believe the Gospel, not change our life and believe the Gospel. Do you see the drastic difference in meaning? I sure do! To change one's life would be works instead of faith.
Tragically, Bible translators have taken it upon themselves to play God. They claim that God merely gave us His ideas (thought inspiration), and that a Bible translation is okay just so long as men convey the general idea which God had in mind. That is some dangerous thinking! The Bible makes a big deal of obeying “EVERY WORD” of God. Matthew 4:4, “But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” This is a quote from the Old Testament passage of Deuteronomy 8:3.
Sadly, a new Bible version just came out in 2020 called the: “Literal Standard Version” (LSV), in which they corrupt Deuteronomy 8:3. Whereas the King James Bible reads that man shall live: “by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live”; the LSV changes it to read: “but man lives by everything proceeding [from] the mouth of YHWH.” The emphasis on EVERY WORD is lost. Everything emphasis the thoughts of God, not the exact details of EVERY WORD. If we are to live by EVERY WORD of God, then we most definitely need an EVERY WORD Bible today!
The Churches Are Pathetic Today
It is tragic what is happening to churches today! Pastor John MacArthur is one of the most popular and beloved leaders in America today. Unfortunately, he is an unsaved liberal, who despite his gift of being an orator, denies that Jesus had God's blood flowing in His veins. Effectively Dr. MacArthur is denying Jesus' deity, saying that he was a mere man. Jesus was born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:23), meaning that He DIDN'T have an earthly father. So how could Jesus not have God's blood, since God Himself is Jesus Father? Jesus was 100% a man and 100% God—the God-man, humanity's one and only Mediator (1st Timothy 2:5).
Likewise, churches everywhere are denying that we have an inspired and infallible Bible today. It is tragic what is happening to churches today! Pastors are teaching that Jesus didn't have God's blood in Him. Pastors are teaching that we don't have an infallible and inspired Bible today. Pastors are teaching that Jesus didn't apply His liquid blood to the Mercy Seat in Heaven. Can you believe this? I kindly asked one Baptist pastor—a Pensacola Christian College alumni—if he believed Jesus' blood was in Heaven today. He replied that he didn't know. Well get a Bible man! Hebrews 9:12, “Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.” Jesus is our heavenly High Priest (Hebrews 4:14-16; Romans 8:34).
I don't pick on the Bob Jones' crowd because I hate them, God forbid. I rattle their cage because I love them! I jump on their case because at one time long ago, Bob Jones University was the citadel of Christian Fundamentalism in America. Sadly, BJU has changed, and is now a hotbed of Neo-evangelical sinful compromise and utter deceit. I am a thankful and humble graduate of Hyles-Anderson College (1985-1993). That is one of the best decisions I ever made in my life. Albeit, I so much regret that I didn't find a wife there. That was a major blunder, which I will pay for for the rest of my earthly life. Granted, I humbly count my blessings.
Please Don't Divide The Word Of God
The real mother cried out: “give her the living child, and in no wise slay it.” Every born-again believer knows who our mother is. We have all been born again by the “seed” of THE WORD OF GOD (1st Peter 1:23; Luke 8:11). Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” The word “quick” here means living. The Word of God is not just a mere book, it is THE BOOK!!! John 6:63, “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” The Words of God are living words, which is why the King James Bible absolutely MUST be inspired by God. They are inspired (IN-SPIRIT) words, meaning they are ALIVE!!!
The false mother in Solomon's court wanted the baby dead. She said: “Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it!” Since she had rolled over in her sleep, accidently smothering her own child to death, she wanted the other woman to share her pain and loss. That is so wicked. The true mother wanted her child to live, even of it meant letting the other woman raise the child.
The same holds true concerning the Holy Bible. God-fearing Christians don't want the living Word killed. The Devil's unsaved crowd merely want to make money, willing to murder the Bible again and again, dividing it so that it is no longer alive. What saith the Scripture? Jeremiah 23:36, “And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.” Only the King James Bible only crowd are pleading for the life of the Holy Bible, crying out: “Please don't change it! Please don't corrupt it! Please don't subtract and add to it! Please leave the Bible alone and let it live!” But the Devil's religious crowd savagely cry out, saying: “Cut it, change it, corrupt it, and take the life from it!”
Just as king Solomon instantly knew in God's wisdom, that the real mother sought to protect the life of the living child; even so is it clear today that true born-again Christians desire to protect the living Word of God from the hands of corrupt men.
