The Revised NIV
(Only After 25 years!)
And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.
Last week Zondervan Publishers released its revised version NIV translation. It took just 25 years for a revised edition, while the King James has not been revised in 400 years. The revision was to make this translation "politically correct" and gender neutral. Zondervan tried six years ago to release this revision, but it ran into tremendous objections and did not release it.
Only six years later, there is no objection: not even a whimper! Even looking at how the NIV is being revived, you can see the corruption. There is now no end to how these publishers are corrupting the word of God.
What I find very interesting is critics of the King James Bible often try to discredit it, by saying it was revised four times. The KJV was not revised, but now look at the NIV! After only 25 years, it is now revised to make it politically correct!
Sign of the times: Updated NIV Bible 03/08/11 The corrupt publishers are not even trying to hide that they are tampering with the word for their agenda!
"It replaces multiple uses of "sinful nature" with "flesh," which Moo said is meant to leave to the reader the question of whether sin is a core human element or one of many outside forces to which we yield."
What will it take to open the eyes of Christians to the publishers' scam of these modern translations? They are boldly telling what they are doing and not even trying to hide their altering of the word. It appears there is not even a whimper from a church that refuses to defend the word of God.
The King James Bible remains the same. It has not changed in 400 years. The longevity of this Bible should be a tip-off that it is the word of God for the English speaking people. After 400 years, I think you can trust it.
May the Holy God of Israel bless and protect you.
King James Bible's 400-year reign 12/29/11 "The King James Version of the Bible, also known as the "Authorized Version," marks its 400th anniversary in 2011, and by any measure, it has had a lasting impact on the world and on the language into which it was sent. The "authorized" moniker comes from a title-page declaration that this Bible was "authorized to be read in churches."
Zondervan to discontinue the original NIV Bible 03/11 "Having failed to successfully promote an alleged "gender inclusive" version of the Bible from 2005 to 2009, publishing giant, Zondervan, has elected to try again. This time, however, instead of publishing an edited version of the NIV in addition to the standard 1984 edition, Zondervan has elected to simply kill the original NIV and call what's coming out this month an "update." If some of the problems inherent in the original NIV weren't troubling enough, Zondervan editors and management appear bent on revising it to fit the tastes of the modern world, i.e., inclusion and feminism. As they do, they also appear to be content with alienating at least a portion of their base in the process."
