If you came to this page by means of a little sticker you received on the back of the tract "The Attack" or another KJV tract, then I wish to welcome you to this page. On this page you will notice many links which compare the King James Bible to the modern versions. If you have been confused about this issue and have had much "intellectual terminology" thrown at you in defense of the modern versions, yet you still believe something is wrong, I urge you to look at the verse comparison studies which speak for themselves and without pseudo-intellectual jargon attached to them. You will notice that the modern versions have total agreement with Roman Catholic versions and the New World Translation of the Jehovah's Witnesses.

These Youtube videos are concerned with the Sinaiticus Manuscript being a 19th century forgery for the intentional purpose of destroying the King James Bible by replacing it. It is done by David Daniels of Chick Publications and research for the videos were done by Steven Avery. This material is very important because Sinaiticus is one of the two main manuscripts which forms the basis of all modern versions of the Bible, the other manuscript being Vaticanus. This means that the modern versions are totally counterfeit and as I have taught for many years, God does not bless counterfeit versions, especially those based in the occult as you will see in the third video. If possible please forward these links to your friends, pastor, and other church leaders. It behooves every Christian who uses a modern version to watch these videos, especially since the Sinaiticus is used by every modern translation as one of their "oldest and best" manuscripts. Now it is no longer old and best but a forgery from the nineteenth century. The evidence is irrefutable. If you use a modern version, then you are relying on this nineteenth century counterfeit as your Bible.

There are many Christians who use the Septuagint as a reference when doing their Bible studies. It is also believed that the Septuagint was written in the third century B.C. by a group of 72 Jews who took the Hebrew Scriptures and translated them into Greek. However, the Jews saw the Gentiles as unclean and they would have never translated their Scriptures into the language of the Gentiles. The following question remains to be answered. Is the Septuagint a legitimate 3rd Century B.C. document or is it a document written by Origen at the Gnostic School in Alexandria Egypt? This is a series of five Videos from David Daniels of Chick Publications concerning the verity of The Septuagint.

A new series on the Apocrypha. There is a push
by theologians and publishers to place the Apocrypha in the Bible. No
doubt the Roman Catholic Church is behind this attempted ruse.

One of the best Books I have ever Read on the subject of the history of the Bible and its Persecutors
This book needs to be read by those who use the Roman Catholic Modern Versions like the NIV, ESV, HCSB, etc. and see the price that the brethren in the past paid for having the true Bible in their native tongues. After you read this book, you may decide to look at your modern version through the eyes of the martyrs and hopefully you will commit it to the flames as a memorial to them.
ROME AND THE BIBLE: TRACING THE HISTORY OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH AND ITS PERSECUTION OF THE BIBLE AND OF BIBLE BELIEVERS (D.W. Cloud) [ISBN 1-58318-003-6] To our knowledge, this is the first history ever published which details the Roman Catholic Church’s relationship to the Bible from the first millennium to the present. The book could also be titled “The Bible Through the Centuries.” The author has spent thousands of dollars obtaining rare documents relevant to this history (such as a 1641 edition of Foxe’s unabridged Acts and Monuments) and researched the topic in important theological libraries in Canada, America, and England, including the British Library. The book covers the Roman Catholic Inquisition from the 11th to the 19th centuries, particularly the role played by the Inquisition to keep translations of the Bible out of the hands of the common people. It contains the history of ancient separated Christians, including the Waldensians and the Lollards. It gives the history of the English Bible from John Wycliffe to William Tyndale, and the history of the Spanish, German, French, and Italian Bibles. It contains amazing biographies of royal queens who loved the Bible. It gives the decade-by-decade details of papal condemnations of 19th-century Bible societies and of Roman Catholic persecution in the 19th century. It describes the 20th-century phenomenon of Rome changing tactics and joining hands with the Bible societies. It documents the similarities between the Latin Vulgate and the modern versions. It answers the question: Has the Roman Catholic Church changed? The book contains 95 illustrations from rare out-of-print books. Dr. Ian Paisley, Martyrs Memorial Presbyterian Church, Belfast, Northern Ireland, commended us for Rome and the Bible and showed us his copy in which he had written the following words: “Brother Cloud is not beclouded!” Fourth edition revised and enlarged, September 2001, 331 pages, 7X8, perfect bound. Also available in E-Book Format.

Who are these people? Do you know who they are? They are the driving force behind all the modern versions! They are the Editors of both the United Bible Societies Greek New Testament (4 revisions) and the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece (27 revisions). These Greek texts are the basis of all the modern Protestant versions, the Roman Catholic versions, and the Jehovah's Witness New World Translation. None of these five people were truly saved. Would God hand His Holy Word over to a bunch of unbelievers including a Roman Catholic to correct it? If you use a modern version, like ESV, NIV, NASV, HCSB, and any other one you can name, then you are using a Bible version based upon the counterfeit texts prepared by unbelievers.

A Reply to Dr. Daniel Wallace’s Why I Do Not Think the King James Bible is the Best Translation Available Today by Pastor Jack Moorman
Common English Bible Exposed – The Common English Bible was published in 2011 and is just another modern counterfeit version with omissions and changes.
The English Standard Version Exposed – Just like all the other modern versions the ESV is as corrupt. This article takes 50 verses and shows how corrupt it really is and that it is no better than the others although preachers advocate its usage like R.C. Sproul and John MacArthur.
The Holman Christian Standard Bible Exposed – Here are 50 verses which compare with the King James Bible and shows the inaccuracy of the Holman Christian Standard Bible. This article compares the HCSB to the New American Bible which is Roman Catholic and the New World Translation which is the Jehovah’s Witnesses Bible.
The New American Standard Version Exposed – Here are fifty verses in comparison with the King James Bible, The Jehovah’s Witnesses Bible, and the Roman Catholic New American Bible. Guess which two it agrees with? The JWs and the RC Bible.
The New King James Version Exposed – The New King James Version is not an update of the King James Bible but it too contains many changes and it calls itself a portal version to modern versions. It makes hundreds of allusions to the Hort-Westcott manuscripts.
The NIV Exposed – Here are 50 verses which show the severe corruption in the NIV. It has agreement with the Roman Catholic bible and the Jehovah’s Witnesses Bible.
The Revised Standard Version Exposed – The Revised Standard Version was created by the National Council of Churches in 1946 and completed in 1952. It is another counterfeit version as its grandchild the ESV. Here are 50 verses which show how much it agrees with the Jehovah’s Witness Bible and the Roman Catholic New American Bible.
Roots of Corruption – Here is a Scripture comparison between the 1973 NIV, 1901 American Standard Version, 1881 Revised Version and the King James Bible. You will see how corrupt the modern versions are and that they must be avoided at all costs.
Today's New International Version Exposed – In 2002 the TNIV made its debut but soon faded from the shelves of the book stores because it was another flawed modern version. I did this analysis in 2002.
(Prov 18:17 KJV) He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.
I quote the above verse because so many refuse to do any comparisons of their pet version to the King James . They read one book by D.A. Carson or James White and believe they have all truth, yet, when challenged to compare, will not do it. Some want to be very obedient in their Christian life, yet when it comes to their Bible they totally refuse to check it out to see if they have the best version or if they are being duped for the bottom line of publishers and theologians. The above verse basically teaches that if someone presents something, they will seem correct without any comparisons but when another comes to compare, they may not be as correct as they want. Obviously, what keeps most Christians from doing a verse comparison is laziness and pride, because too many refuse to be wrong. I am glad God showed me where I was wrong back in 1986 I used the NASV and then came the comparison and then the garbage can.
1 John 5:7 – 1 John 5:7 has been attacked by modern scholars as unauthentic however the evidence for it is overwhelming. This means that the modern scholars are intentionally omitting this verse in disobedience to Revelation 22:19 which carries the penalty of eternal damnation.
682 Reasons Why I Cannot Trust Any Modern Version – The modern versions of the Bible have omitted, deleted, and added words to the text of Scripture. This is a list of 682 omissions, deletions, and additions which show the modern versions cannot be trusted as they are counterfeit versions of the bible.
Acts 12:4 - Which Easter? – The King James Bible uses the word “Easter” in Acts 12:4 while all the modern versions translate it “Passover.” You will be surprised as to why the King James translators chose “Easter” instead of “Passover” and how correct they were and how wrong the modern versions are for not translating it as “Easter.”
An Establishment Bible – Modern versions have replaced the King James Bible in hopes that the KJB would be removed permanently. Many churches have banned the King James Bible in favor of establishment bibles like the NIV or ESV. It is not a question of the English text but what lies behind the English text and who made the translation.
Archaic Words in the NIV – Proponents of the modern versions claim there are too many archaic words in the King James Bible and that is why it is too hard to understand. Yet, there are hundreds of archaic words found in the NIV. Do you know what a brooch is or a carnelian? These are just 2 archaic words found in the NIV.
Before 1611 – As one who holds to the King James Bible, I am often asked, “where was the Bible before 1611?” This article give a good insight as to the status of the Bible before the King James was translated.
The Broad Church Movement and the Modern Versions – You may not have heard of the Broad Church Movement in the mid-19th century but it had a great impact on the counterfeit bible version issue which is still with us today and growing by leaps and bounds.
Calvinism and The King James Bible – Many Christians believe “Calvinism” is a dirty word in light of the belief of free will, which does not exist. John Calvin interpreted the Bible correctly when it came to the subject of salvation but it was not he who put forth the five points of Calvinism but his followers after his death.
The Car Buyer – A person will investigate and do all kinds of research on a car they want to buy but will not even consider looking behind a translation of the Bible they wish to buy. This article shows how much more we care about the here and now and not showing the same care for the things of eternity.
Characteristics of Vaticanus and Sinaiticus – The Vaticanus and Sinaiticus manuscripts are the two most corrupt manuscripts in existence today. In fact the Sinaiticus has recently been proven to be a 19th century fake which means it is of no value yet modern version editors build their modern versions on these two esoteric manuscripts. This article contains information on what Origen believed. Sinaiticus and Vaticanus differ in the gospels 3036 times which means there is no harmony between these two corrupt manuscripts.
Church, Congregation, or Assembly – Which word is correct? Many claim that the word “church” is used incorrectly in the King James Bible, but is it?
Codex B - Its History – Codex B, otherwise known as Vaticanus was discovered in the Vatican library in 1475 and has been used as a major codex in the translation of the modern versions. Here is a history of that Codex. Is it really reliable?
Counterfeit Versions - Why I use the Term – God wrote only one Bible and it is found in the King James Bible. The modern versions are counterfeits with all their omissions, word changes, reversal of word meanings, and additions. There can only be one Bible and it is not the modern versions. Since 1881 there have been over 200 translations of the New Testament and 99% of them are from the Hort-Westcott text or the Critical Text. I explain fully why I use the term counterfeit versions.
Daniel 3:25 - God or gods? – Does Daniel 3:25 speak about gods or God? Is the person in the fire the Son of God or the son of a pantheon of gods? The modern versions claim it is plural “gods.” The King James states singular “God.” Find out which one is correct.
Did Rome Give Us The Bible? – The Roman Catholic Institution teaches that it was them that gave us the Bible. Rome did give us a line of bibles and you will find here what line it was! You will also find what Bible they did not give us!
Easter or Passover in Acts 12:4 – The modern versions translate Acts 12:4 with the word “Passover.” The King James translates the word “pashca” as “Easter.” Which one is correct? It is very important to know the difference.
Early Witnesses to the Received Text – Many think the modern versions have the earliest manuscript witnesses but the truth is the King James Bible has readings which are as much as 200 years earlier than the two corrupt Catholic manuscripts.
Erasmus and the Textus Receptus – Here is an article which gives the truth about Erasmus and his involvement in the Textus Receptus. This article will put to death all the false accusations about Erasmus.
ESV - More Changes to the Text – The ESV is going to offer only more confusion and false teaching. This article by Will Kinney shows the corruption behind the 2001 ESV. The ESV is going to be revised in 2016 but it will only be more of the same.
The Attack on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ by the ESV – The ESV is no friend of the Lord Jesus Christ as it contains many verses which have been chopped up by the Gnostics. They have taken the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and have shortened it since they did not believe that Christ was God and man at the same time.
Faith of Christ or Faith in Christ according to the Modern versions – The modern Bible versions have changed faith of Christ to faith in Christ. There is a big difference between them. We must be given the faith of Christ before we can have faith in Christ!
God's Unchanging Word – The modern versions have changed the unchanging word of God. Are the modern versions filled with error?
The Hampton Court Conference of 1604 – The Hampton Court Conference of 1604 was where the idea for a new translation of the Bible was birthed. It became known as the Authorized Version or as it began to be known as the King James Bible in the early 1800s.
Hating the King James Bible? – Have you ever heard a modern Bible version proponent say, “I love the King James Bible BUT.” Once they add that “but” what follows is normally a diatribe against the King James Bible which means they really hate the King James Bible.
History of the Controversy – Here is a great article concerning the controversy between the history of the King James Bible and the modern versions.
Holman Christian Standard Bible: Whose Standard is it? – The Holman Christian Standard Bible is another modern version which falls way short of accuracy.
How Accurate is your Translation of the Bible? – The modern versions of the Bible contain many omissions, additions, and errors. Find out here if your Bible is one of those counterfeits flooding the market today.
How Many Revisions? – Foes of the King James Bible claim there were 4 revisions to the King James Bible with over 75,000 word changes. Find out here if that accusation is correct.
Is the Hebrew Masoretic Text Uncertain? – The Masoretic Text which is the Hebrew Text of the Old Testament has come under fire as not being accurate but it cannot be proven to be less than accurate by the critics.
Is the King James Version Inspired? – Some believe that the English language of the King James Bible is inspired. Is that true? Are the words inspired or are they preserved?
Is The NIV the Word of God? – The NIV is one of the most corrupt counterfeits of the Bible on the market. The author actually questions as to whether it can be the Word of God or not?
Jerome and Vigilantius – Vigilantius believed that the ancient scrolls should be preserved. He visited Jerome in 397 A.D. and copied the texts and brought them back to his homeland.
King James Language - The Excuse – Many people complain that the language of the King James Bible is archaic and cannot be understood. Does that argument hold any credibility in light of the terms we all must learn to keep up with modern technology?
King James Only - Where did the term originate? – Up until the time of the King James Bible, there were 7 translations which were in the lineage of the King James Bible. These seven versions used different English because the English language was still in flux. King James wanted to unify all the believers and wanted all of them to use the Authorized Version. The name “King James Version” was not used until the early 1800’s. Up until then it was called the Authorized Version.
Lineage of the King James Version – The King James Bible was translated between 1604 and 1611 but up till that time the word of God had shown up in various translations and various languages. See the lineage of the King James Bible from 90 A.D. to 1604.
Lineage of the Modern Corrupt Versions – Just like the King James Bible, the corrupt versions also have a lineage coming from a different line of manuscripts called the Alexandrian line.
Multiple Version Disorder – Some Christians feel the need to study the Bible with many different versions. It causes confusion and since the modern versions are all different in what they say, there will never be harmony and understanding. How can one come to a solid conclusion when the studies are built upon sand?
Murdered by the Church of Rome – Here is a partial list of the martyrs which were murdered by the Roman Catholic institution along with the reasons why they were executed.
New American Standard Version - Another Gnostic Book – The NASV is proven to be a very Gnostic book with its incessant attacks on the Lord Jesus Christ.
The New Eye Opener – Here is a list of 200 Bible verses which have been corrupted in the modern versions of the Bible.
New King James Counterfeit – An excellent analysis by Terry Watkins concerning the New King James Version which is another counterfeit version and is not based upon the same manuscripts the King James Bible is.
New Version Scholar Loses Voice – Dr. Don Wilkins of the New American Standard translation committee loses his voice on the John Ankerberg show.
Nineteenth Century Occult Revival - Legacy of Hort and Westcott – Westcott and Hort were the culprits behind the 1881 Revised Version. They were anything but Christians. If you use a modern version of the Bible, then you are using the corrupt Greek text of Hort and Westcott. Their text was not the only thing that was corrupt. They were corrupt in their lives also.
NIV Bible Quiz – Here is a 25 question quiz but you can only use the NIV. Once you complete it you will want to run as fast as you can from the NIV.
The NIV Hates the Lord Jesus – The NIV deletes and shortens the name of the Lord Jesus Christ because it has been infected with the Gnosticism of the 2nd century. Another dangerous book calling itself a Bible.
The NIV Infection – Here is another article which shows the severe corruption in the NIV by comparison of Scripture verses.
No Doctrines Are Changed? – The modern version proponents claim that the modern versions do not change any doctrines. Here is an article which refutes that lie completely.
The Old Latin Version and the King James Bible Readings – The Old Latin version was around since 157 A.D. (Not Jerome’s) and is in total agreement with the King James Bible. It is an older witness than many of the manuscripts the modern version proponents claim to be oldest and best.
The Old Rugged Cross (Revised Version) – I did a remake of the Old Rugged Cross using the same method that the modern versions used on the Scriptures.
Origen's Gnostic Belief System – Origen is touted by many Christian theologians as a great early father of the church. Is this true? Origen had many pagan beliefs and even mutilated his own body. He was a heretic not a Christian.
Principles of Bible Preservation – The Bible has been miraculously preserved down through the ages and here are some principles concerning Bible preservation.
Qualifications of the King James Translators – The King James translators were men of exceptional quality and education. They far exceed the Bible translators of today.
The Received Text – A small article on the accuracy and truthfulness of the Received text which underlies the King James Bible.
Sodomy and the NIV – The NIV used two sodomites on their translation team. God would never give His Bible over to any sodomite for them to correct it as they seem fit.
Superiority of the King James Bible - Here is a four-fold study showing the superiority of the King James Bible over the modern versions and their errors.
Testimony of S. Franklin Logsdon (Chief NASV Translator) – The Lord opened the spiritual eyes of S. Franklin Logsdon who was a translator of the New American Standard Bible which is another counterfeit version. Read the confession here and see how he finally rejected the NASV for its corruption.
Textual Criticism: Fact and Fiction – Here is an in depth article concerning Textual Criticism which the foes of the King James Bible treat as the gospel itself.
Textual Criticism - A Satanic Success Story – When the Bible is ripped apart by the so-called scholars using textual criticism, it has far reaching effects beyond just the change of the text and the removal of the King James Bible.
They Dare Call This Science – Higher Criticism is considered to be a science but really is it or is it just an attack on the pure manuscripts behind the King James Bible?
Updated Version or Replacement? – Is the Revised Version of 1881 an updated version of the King James Bible or is it a total replacement? Has Christianity been sold a bill of goods concerning the modern Bibles?
Was King James a Homosexual? - The Real Story of King James I – King James has been unjustly vilified as being a homosexual. Find out where that accusation came from and learn the truth behind these false rumors. King James has been accused simply because the same people that hate the King James Bible love their Roman Catholic Versions.
Westcott Hort Only Controversy – Westcott and Hort were the ones behind the 1881 RV which attempted to displace the King James Bible. What did Hort and Westcott believe and what was their reason for trying to do away with the King James Bible?
What Hort and Westcott Believed – Hort and Westcott ere the two Cambridge Professors who planned the 1881 Revised Version. They had some very ungodly beliefs which leads to the reality that they were unsaved. Only unsaved people can hold to these views
What about those Thees and Thous? – In the King James Bible, we see the copious use of the words thee and thou. Is there a specific reason that words like these were used? Find out here why these words are very important.
Which Bible? It's Easy to Decide – There are two streams of extant manuscripts underlying bibles today. Find out which stream your bible is of and if it is an accurate version.
Which Bible is Preserved of God? – With so many bible versions available to the Christian today, only one can be the preserved word of God. Find out which Bible God has preserved down through the ages.
Who Controls the World, God or Satan? – Many Christians feel that because Satan is called the “god of this world” that he is the one running it. Nothing could be further from the truth. He is subservient to God and can only make a move with God’s permission.
Why I am King James Only? – Many people use modern versions only and are well-accepted by the majority of Christians. I am totally King James Only and that title brings the ire of the Christian community. Find out why I hold only to the King James Bible as the preserved word of God.
Why 1 John 5:7-8 is in the Bible – Many claim that 1 John 5:7-8 is not part of the original Scriptures as God gave them. However, the evidence shows just the opposite with much manuscript evidence. Why then do these theologians continue to ignore the evidence?
Your Modern Version is Roman Catholic – If you use a modern version of the Bible, do you realize that modern versions are made under the authority of the Roman Catholic Church along with Roman Catholic translators on the translation committees.
LXX - A Model of Reverse Engineering – The Septuagint is used by many students of Scripture for the study of the Scriptures. However, the accuracy of the Septuagint has much to be desired. It is one of the most corrupt translations in existence today.
The Septuagint – The Septuagint is not an inspired writing because it contains many errors and it is believed that it was written by Origen and not by 72 Jewish scholars in the 3rd century B.C.
Was the Septuagint the Bible of Christ and the Apostles? – Another aspect of the story of the Septuagint is the belief that it was the Bible of Jesus and the Apostles. Is that true? Find out in this article.
What is the Septuagint? – Many Christians treat the Septuagint on par with the Scriptures. Find out who is pushing the Septuagint on Christians and is it a writing that we should even consider as valid?
If you are looking for a King James Bible which helps define many of the words for you, may I suggest that you look at the Defined King James Bible available through the Bible for Today Ministry. I personally use this Bible. This Bible uses the Cambridge text which is more accurate than the Oxford text. The Bible comes in both regular and large print. In both cases, the print is easy on the eyes as it is not jammed together. If your eyes are weak or they strain easily, then this is the Bible for you. For the Spanish speaking brethren, I suggest the Reina Valera Gomez 2004.
