Affected Teaching
Before we look at the seriousness of this one word omission and what it proclaims, let us look at the following 100% comparison of five versions which hold complete agreement with the Roman Catholic Bible, the NAB. The next time someone tries to claim that the modern versions do not agree with the Roman Catholic Bible, show them this word for word agreement found in the NIV, NASB, TNIV, ESV, and the 1901 ASV.
 
(NIV) --------- one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
(NASB) ------- one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.
(TNIV) -------- one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
(ESV) -------- one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
(1901 ASV) --one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in all.
(NAB) -------- one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
 
Pantheism and Hinduism teaches that God is in everything. By omitting the word “you” in Ephesians 4:6, the modern versions are teaching that God is in everything and everyone which gives credence to the New Age tenet that God is in everyone therefore everyone is God. Many years ago in a movie, Shirley MacLaine claimed that she was God. What Paul is focusing on in this verse is that God dwells only in the true believers and not everyone in the entire world. The word “you” is a qualifying word telling us whom God truly indwells. When left out, as in the modern versions, it augments New Age Teaching and that is why New Agers have no problems with the modern versions since they were translated out of manuscripts by two of their own, Hort and Westcott, who were necromancers and occultists.
 
(CEV) There is one God who is the Father of all people. Not only is God above all others, but he works by using all of us, and he lives in all of us.*
 
In the CEV, this trashlation points out that God is the Father of all people. God is the God of all people but He is not the Father of all people. (John 8:44 KJV) 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. Unbelievers, of whom the majority of people are, do not have God as their Father but Satan. Therefore, God is not the Father of the unbelievers, only the believers. The CEV is extremely deceptive on this issue in this verse.
 
(THE MESSAGE) one God and Father of all, who rules over all, works through all, and is present in all. Everything you are and think and do is permeated with Oneness.
 
This verse is extremely perverted in THE MESSAGE which is the version of choice of Rick Warren in his Purpose Driven New Age system. First of all, this verse also teaches Pantheism and Hinduism by stating that God is in all. Secondly, it also claims that God is the Father of all people in the world but we saw John 8:44 quash that belief very quickly. Thirdly, the second sentence in this verse has extreme New Age connotation as we read that everything you are and think is permeated with “Oneness.” Probably the most noticeable teaching of the New Age Movement is that a person can become one with the godhead and become god themselves. The New Age adherents are looking for “The Coming One” which is their avatar or “The Christ” which is so prevalent in their teaching. “The Christ” that they are looking for is not the Lord Jesus Christ but an ascended master from the seventh plane which is going to come back and put all of humanity on the right path, according to their beliefs. According to New Age teachings, the Lord Jesus Christ is an ascended master who is equal with Buddha and Confucius and others. When Rick Warren uses the Message as his primary translation, he is only agreeing with the New Age tenets which his Purpose Driven system is built on.
 
The more new versions which come out the more they are leading toward New Age and one world beliefs. Look at the word Universal>> uNIVersal Coincidence? There is no such thing as a chance coincidence.
 
The New King James Version uses the term “Coming One” and has a satanic Mobius on its cover which should send caution into the minds of every true Christian who has one. It also seems that with every new version which appears, it shows the King James Bible to be the great stabilizer of Christian beliefs and stability is a core tenet of the true Christian faith. Why? God does not change and neither should we!
