In order to really see WHY these new modern versions are so terrible, you have to understand that they are based on corrupt manuscripts. Do yourself a favor, and get a copy of G.A. Riplinger's book, New Age Versions, and see for yourself. She has done extensive research into the background of the new versions, and exposes WHY there have been so many "fingers in the pot". Just wait until you see WHO was behind the alteration of the scriptures, and WHY! There are many other excellent books to be had, that will expose the truth, but THAT one is very comprehensive. Click on the cover for more info...
Finally, and THIS is a weird one, look up Acts 8:37, where Philip is baptizing the eunuch. Some of the new translations have omitted it, completely. Pretty important omission, and of course, that's why its absence is obvious. There are many other verses that have been totally omitted from new versions. If you want to find out the truth, get a four-version parallel Bible, and start comparing the texts. You are in for a shock - especially at the content of the verses which have been omitted.
These new editions are replete with subtle alterations and twisted renderings. If your fellowship or church recommends them, consider leaving. If they're not setting the captives free, praying for one another, and they don't move in the strength and power of God's might, with the signs following - you're just wasting your time there, anyway. When you live, loving God, you get a life infused with explosive power and might, energy and enthusiasm, love, joy, and peace. Expect nothing less, search diligently, and you WILL find it. Get yourself a King James Bible, and read it. Meet with others, of like mind, and encourage and exhort others to do the same.
The difference between one who has fed only on all of these new "pap" versions, and one who has the TRUE word hid in his heart, is like the difference between standing in a dark room with a match, trying to see - and switching on a floodlight, plugged into ELECTRICITY. Just as electricity illuminates a bulb - God's Word, illuminates a body --- make that BODY, MIND and SOUL.
Do not take these new versions lightly - I am convinced that they are largely responsible for the APOSTASY IN THE CHURCH today, and are a HUGE piece in the puzzle of deception. The translators who worked on them, worked DILIGENTLY to keep you ignorant, and in the dark.
Please remember this is only a very FEW of the perversions in the newer versions!
It bears repeating:
"KNOWLEDGE REJECTED IS
A FEARSOME MASTER."
