Bible versions (2) – Comparisons between The Majority (KJV) and Minority (NIV and others) Texts

 

©  main body of this chart is taken from av1611.com

This chart will compare the difference between the bibles that use the Minority Text manuscripts – MinT (which are based upon mainly 2 corrupted New Testament manuscripts) and the King James Bible that is based on Majority Text manuscripts –MajT [this root manuscript(s) was the basis of the Vulgate and Textus Receptus] (based upon over 5,000 New Testament manuscripts).

THE MOST ANCIENT MANUSCRIPT IS THE MOST ACCURATE:
Some claim that the most ancient manuscripts (minority text) are the most accurate. What you are not told is that the most ancient manuscripts found were seldom used; hence they were not copied because they were not wearing out. So if they were not copied over and over because of heavy use, then it stands to reason that the paper was not updated (so it aged).  On the other hand, the majority text scriptures were copied over and over again because of heavy use, so the paper appears now to be more recent than the former.

WERE THE SCRIPTURES ALWAYS COPIED ACCURATELY?

No. The Majority text manuscripts (MajT) had copy errors which came in overtime; as there was no perfect system in place to ensure 100% accuracy. However, on the other hand the errors and omissions associated with the minority text manuscripts (MinT) were not so much copy errors but more to do with changing doctrines involving Yeshua (Jesus) and who He was.

 

TTGM: We investigate by comparing side by side with comments. To the thinking mind, you will see a trend as well as a motive. 

Watch this short presentation that sums up the following.

TTGM Comments

(comments based on truth)

Mt 9:13

for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.

For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.

For I came to call, not righteous people, but sinners.

The Minority Text (MinT) leaves out the most important part that a sinner must do. Repentance. ( see 2nd witness Luke 5:32)

Mt 18:11

For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.

footnote casts doubt

The spirit behind the MinT removed this very important verse about our Lord. Why?

Think motive.

Mt 19:17

Why callest thou me good?

"Why do you ask me about what is good?"

"Why are you asking me about what is good?"

"Why do you ask me about what is good?"

This was changed in the MinT because they did not want that Yeshua (Jesus) Himself be addressed as “good”.

Mt 25:13

Ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

You do not know the day or the hour.

You do not know the day nor the hour.

You know neither the day nor the hour,

Why would you want to leave out the one that said He (Yeshua) will return (in that hour).

Mk 10:24

.how hard it is for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!

.how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!

.how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!

.how difficult a thing it is to enter into the kingdom of God!

Why would you not want the rich to know that it is hard for them to enter the Kingdom of heaven (as the young ruler did, he put his riches before Christ)

Lk 2:33

And Joseph and his mother,,,

The child's father and mother.

His father and mother.

its father and mother.

The MajT calls him Joseph, but the MinT implies that he (Joseph) is the father of Christ. Casting doubt re His virgin birth.

Lk 4:4

Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

Man does not live on bread alone.

Man shall not live on bread alone.

Man must not live by bread alone.

The MinT removes the importance of the word of God.

Lk 4:8

Get thee behind me, Satan.

OMITTED

OMITTED

OMITTED

The spirit behind the MinT removed this very important verse about how to deal with satan. Why?

Think motive.


Mk 9:29

 

This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

This kind can come out only by prayer.

OMITTED in Mt 17:21

This kind cannot come out by anything but prayer.

This kind cannot get out by anything except by prayer.

Now a thinking person would know that spiritual people (eg. disciples) would at least be men of prayer. However, our Lord says to include fasting to deal with tough demons that are stubborn to come out. 

Now the question is; why would the spirit behind the MinT remove the word fasting? Could the motive be this spirit does not want the believer to know how to get out stubborn demons? Hmmmm, could this be a glaring motive? Think, the answer is simple

Jn 6:47

He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

He who believes has everlasting life.

He who believes has eternal life.

He that believes has everlasting life.

Why would MinT leave out the “me”(Yeshua) for everlasting life?

Again think motive.

Jn 8:9

And when they heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out.

.those who heard began to go away.

.when they heard it, they began to go out one by one.

OMITTED

Why conviction of conscience would be left out by the MinT. Is it not critical to know that your conscience plays a role in what you do?

Jn 9:4

I must work the works of him that sent me.

We must do the work of him who sent me.

We must work the works of Him who sent Me.

We must work the works of him that sent me.

The MinT changes the mandate of the Father to the Son (only) to we (the believers). It is the Son only that is able to complete the works of the Father. Why? All have sinned and fallen short (not the Son).

Jn 10:30

I and my Father are one

I and the Father are one.

I and the Father are one.

I and the Father are one.

“My Father” implies oneness/sameness with God in the text. This is why the Jews were going to stone Him; He made himself equal with God (Joh 10:33). Why would the MinT want to remove “my”?

Again think motive.

Ac 2:30

that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

.he would place one of his descendants on his throne.

.to seat one of his descendants upon his throne.

.he would seat one from the fruitage of his loins upon his throne.

Why would the MinT leave out the name of Christ to be seated on the throne? And let us not leave out, “on the right hand of the Father”. Too much for them to take maybe? ….motive

Ac 8:37

If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

OMITTED

footnote casts doubt (some editions just omit it)

OMITTED

The spirit behind the MinT removed this very important verse about our Lord. Why?

The eunuch was required to confess the King of kings before he could be baptized.

Think motive.

Ac 23:9

Let us not fight against God.

OMITTED

OMITTED

OMITTED

The spirit behind the MinT removed this very important verse about us fighting against God. Why?

Think motive.

Rom 13:9

Thou shalt not bear false witness.

OMITTED

OMITTED

OMITTED

The spirit behind the MinT removed this very important verse about being a false witness. Why?

Think motive.

Co 1:14

In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins.

In whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

In whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

By means of whom we have our release by ransom, the forgiveness of our sins.

Why would the MinT remove the blood? The blood that purchased His church. The blood that was used to redeem His church.

1Ti 3:16

God was manifest in the flesh.

He appeared in a body.

He who was revealed in the flesh.

He was made manifest in the flesh.

The spirit behind the MinT does not want us to know that Yeshua is God manifested in the flesh. Why?

1Ti 6:5

Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

"from such withdraw thyself" is omitted

"from such withdraw thyself" is omitted

"from such withdraw thyself" is omitted

The spirit behind the MinT does not want the believer to withdraw himself from people that have the spirit of anti-Christ. Why?

1Pe 1:22

Ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit.

you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth.

Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls.

Now that you have purified your souls by your obedience to the truth.

Why does the spirit of the MinT not want the believer to obey truth through the Holy Ghost (Spirit)?

1Jo 4:3

And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God.

But every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God.

And every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God.

But every inspired expression that does not confess Jesus does not originate with God.

Why does the spirit of the MinT not want the believer to know that Christ is come in the flesh?

 

1Jo 5:7

 


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

For there are three that testify:

For there are three that testify.

For there are three witness bearers

Why would the MinT change the strongest verse that supports the doctrine of the Trinity? Three persons (they are each a witness), one God.

If you look at the other examples of scripture that are given on this report it should be no surprise as to why.

Re 5:14

Four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

.the elders fell down and worshipped.

.the elders fell down and worshipped.

.the elders fell down and worshipped.

Why does the spirit of the MinT not want the “Him” in the text to be recognized for worship as well as He liveth for ever and ever. Why? Because, Him is Yeshua, and Yeshua is God and deserving of worship.

Re 20:9

Fire came down from God out of heaven.

Fire came down from heaven.

Fire came down from heaven.

Fire came down out of heaven.

Why does the spirit of the MinT not want the believer to know that God is responsible for the fire that is going to come down?

Re 21:24

And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it.

The nations will walk by its light.

And the nations shall walk by its light.

And the nations will walk by means of its light.

Why does the spirit of the MinT leave out the fact that only the “saved” will be around?

OLD TESTAMENT EXAMPLE

Mic 5:2

 

But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.

 

But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.

But as for you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Too little to be among the clans of Judah, From you One will go forth for Me to be ruler in Israel. His goings forth are from long ago, From the days of eternity

And you, O Bethʹle·hem Ephʹra·thah, The one too little to be among the thousands* of Judah, From you will come out for me the one to be ruler in Israel, Whose origin is from ancient times, from the days of long ago.

This verse speaks of the coming Massiah (Yeshua). From the translators of the MinT they try to turn Yeshua into a created being in an old testament prophecy by saying He was in time and His arrival (creation) was from ancient times. However, the King James version correctly renders our Lord’s existence from “everlasting”. Correctly done, why? Only God is everlasting (He is an eternal being without a beginning). NAS has a little better rendition (days of eternity). The JW cult has made a recent change to “days long ago”, before it was, “days of time indefinite”. Crazy stuff. Yeshua was from everlasting (always existed). Amen.

 

TTGM: We hope by now you can see the motive or attempt by translations (based on corrupted manuscripts) other than the King James to subvert the doctrine of the Word in many areas.

We can only say, be not deceived. Eternity is too long to spend in regret.

Whichever bible you choose to study or read remember some are accursed. Why do we say this? We believe the following scripture.

(Deut 4:2 [KJV]) God’s warning in the OT
Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.

(Rev 22:18-20 [KJV]) God’s warning in the NT
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

To all would be translators and interpreters

Beware how you handle the Word of God
