God’s Word Attacked

Sadly, the modern translations of the Bible mostly use the Westcott and Hort New Testament Greek text, and it is in these versions that the Scriptures have been corrupted where portions of text are left out, certain words that have doctrinal implications are dropped and the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ is diminished or out-rightly blasphemed. What also causes great concern is that this creates a situation where doubt is created in the minds of the readers as to what is the actual reading as “truth” and this is further advocated when footnotes that question the veracity of which Scriptures are to be included and which are not to be included in the main body of Bible text. This also causes uncertainty as to what God Almighty is actually saying. When contentions exist, the Word of God can be “attacked” as not being infallible, inerrant and preserved which then brings about mocking from the unbelieving heathen world that God Almighty’s Word is not Divinely inspired. The other issue that is so prevalent within the assembly of believers is that when the Scriptures are read from the Bible, mostly all are reading from different versions which can lead to no cohesion in reading the Word and following the same, with much “teachings” as to which “words” should be in the Bible and which is a better translation of the words. This causes confusion and God Almighty is not a God of confusion, as we read:

1 Corinthians 14:33  For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

Here in an article in pdf format that is titled: “Serious Omissions in the NIV Bible by Keith Piper; which deals with not only the New International Version (NIV) that has been corrupted, but this document also shows the flaws within the other modern versions, including the ‘New American Standard Version,’ the ‘Good News for Modern Man,’ the ‘Living Bible,’ the ‘Revised Version’ of 1881 and the ‘NKJV.’ The document is worth reading all 138 pages to gain a better understanding why there has to be a defence for the King James Bible and to steer away from the satanic influences of corrupting God’s Holy Word. The old adage of, “If you don’t stand for Truth, you will stand for anything” rings loud and true.

Publishers

We can also see that the enemy – Satan the devil – wants nothing more than to have a corrupted version of God’s Holy Word in circulation that teaches half-truth deceptions and lies! Our Lord Jesus Christ warns that the religious order of the day belonged to their “father the devil … for he is a liar, and the father of it” as we read:

John 8:44  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

It is very important to know that publishers and their publishing houses together with academics on the translating committees play a very significant role in distributing these modern-day perversions that flood the market place and the churches of today. Look at the history surrounding two of the largest “Christian Literature” printing houses Zondervan and Thomas Nelson that have been bought out and become subsidiaries of HarperCollins, which in turn is controlled by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation. You will see from the two articles hereunder that it is shameful, wicked and evil, the material that this media conglomerate produces in homosexual, pornographic and satanic literature together with these pervert editions of the bible. If you are purchasing and supporting these media groupings, which also include a whole host of supposedly christian literature by men and women preaching another gospel (see Galatians 1:6-9), then you are aligned with their devilish practices. We are given principals by way of commandments that we should abstain from all appearance of evil (1 Thess 5:22), hold fast that which is good (1 Thess 5:21), and to walk in the light and not in darkness (see Eph 5:8). This is an earnest plea to my beloved brethren to examine all things and get back to walking the narrow way, not deviating to the right or left. Besides these two articles hereunder there is also a podcast that I encourage you to listen to that deals with these very issues.

Contending For TruthThe NIV, the Satanic Bible and Homosexual Translators
July 29th, 2007 by Dr. Scott Johnson

http://www.chick.com/bc/2005/word.asp

In this teaching we will be taking an eye opening look at the NIV bible: ‘In 1988, Zondervan became a division of HarperCollins’ If you visit online at Harpercollins.com, you will find some very evil books for sale that are published by this company like PRO-HOMOSEXUAL titles. And amidst these evil books, we find the following advertisement from this same publishing company: ‘The foregoing is excerpted from ‘Satanic Bible’ by Anton La Vey. All rights reserved. No part of this book may be used or reproduced without written permission from HarperCollins Publishers, 10 East 53rd Street, New York, NY 10022′. Notice that HarperCollins not only publishes homosexual books, they publish the ‘Satanic Bible.’ Zondervan is a subsidiary of HarperCollins, which is owned by News Corp, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch. He is one of the biggest producers of worldwide pornography on the planet. And his company, Zondervan, holds the exclusive distribution rights to the NIV. This conglomerate also publishes ‘Good News for Modern Man’ and ‘The Amplified Version.’ We will also be looking at NIV Stylist, rabid lesbian, new ager and author of ‘OmniGender: A Trans-Religious Approach’ Virginia Mollenkott and THE CHAIRMAN OF THE NIV’S OLD TESTAMENT TRANSLATION COMMITTEE, Dr. Marten H. Woudstra, also a homosexual. We will then examine the two distinct streams of Bibles that have resulted in all the translations available today: One Stream Pure one Stream Corrupt.

GleaningsChristianity Today 

HarperCollins Buys Thomas Nelson, Will Control 50% of Christian Publishing Market

Where will Thomas Nelson fit in Murdoch’s empire, which already includes Zondervan?

by Ted Olsen [ posted 10/31/2011 02:38PM ]

HarperCollins Publishers today announced it was buying Christian/inspirational publisher Thomas Nelson "for an undisclosed sum." It’s a huge move since the company will now reportedly control about half of the Christian publishing market.

The question now is how the acquisition will play with Zondervan, Thomas Nelson’s chief competition. HarperCollins, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, acquired Zondervan in 1988. (It also owns religion and spirituality imprint HarperOne.) Thomas Nelson says it is reportedly the largest Christian publisher in the world and the seventh largest trade-book publisher in the United States. Zondervan says it is the world’s leading Bible publisher.

In 2009, then-Thomas Nelson CEO Michael Hyatt reported that his publisher and Zondervan control half of the Christian publishing market – a percentage that had held relatively steady over the previous few years.

It’s been a long road for Thomas Nelson, which was founded in Edinburgh in 1798 and gained religious prominence in the U.S. through the publication of the American Standard Version and Revised Standard Version of the Bible. In 1960, it merged with The Thomson Organization (which later merged with Reuters), but was bought out by eager Lebanese-American Bible publisher Sam Moore in 1969. Moore ran the company until Hyatt succeeded him in 2004.

By then Thomas Nelson had gotten into and out of the music business, swallowing Christian publishing powerhouse Word, Inc. in the early 1990s. In 2006, the company, which had been publicly traded since Moore’s Royal Publishers was first listed on the exchange in 1961, was bought for $473 million and began operating as a private company. Private equity firm Kohlberg and Company acquired a majority ownership last year, and put former HarperCollins Worldwide CEO Jane Friedman on its board.

As can be seen HarperCollins which now has Zondervan and Thomas Nelson under its umbrella controls, as reported in Christianity Today, 50% of the Christian publishing market. This deals with one of the “best selling” bible versions, the perverted NIV, and others, and is also being sold alongside homosexual, pornographic and Satanic Bible products.
