The ESV and its attack on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ
 
Complied by Dr. Ken Matto
 
The English Standard Version like its modern counterparts has attacked the name of the Lord Jesus Christ by shearing off parts of the name. There are a total of 22 verses which have been mutilated by the Gnostics. These mutilations have been retained in the ESV which means the translators agree with the Gnostics. With every new translation, the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ is attacked and His position brought down a little lower. God cannot bless any counterfeit bible version and those Christians who use them will not be blessed in their ministries. Can the Holy Spirit bless corruption?
