End of the Year Message for 2004
Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Well we have come to the end of another year. I started this group July 10th and sent out the first post on July 16th. I hope these studies have been a help to you. I wanted to use only one verse each week to prevent anyone from being overwhelmed with too much information at one time. Another reason I wanted to use the single verse format is so you are able to print them out and give them to other Christians who may be struggling with the version issue. By looking at only one verse, it will give the opportunity to compare the modern versions to the King James without being inundated. The commentary I offer each week is designed to trigger the thought processes in the Christian so they would be willing to investigate this serious issue further.

We have seen over and over again the corruption in the modern versions. We have also seen that the modern versions are in total agreement with both the Roman Catholic and Jehovah’s Witnesses versions. This fact alone should cause a Christian to stand up and take notice. I became a Christian in January of 1981 and I started using the King James Version because that was the version of my confirmation Bible. At that time I didn’t know a thing about the other versions or even that there were other versions. The man who discipled me was using the New American Standard Version and had urged me to get a copy. Even back then, the Holy Spirit was already preparing me for this type of ministry when I asked the man the following question concerning the NASB, “is there anything missing from it?” I was just a babe, so I would not have even known to ask that question.

It was not until 1986, when I heard two senior saints speaking about Hort and Westcott being a couple of Catholics. That was the beginning of this ministry. Then in May 1986 I came across the Chick tract called “The Attack” which thrust me further into the version quagmire. In that tract, was an address of the late Dr. David Otis Fuller, who sent me a number of personally typed letters explaining to me the version problem. It then became obvious to me that something was wrong. Why was there so much difference between the King James and the New American Standard? As I began to delve into this situation, I came across the information that the modern versions and the King James were two different Bibles. The modern versions were not just updated language, instead they were from a completely different source.

That source being primarily the Vaticanus and Sinaiticus manuscripts which were both in possession of the Roman Catholic Church. This is why the modern versions agree totally with the Roman Catholic bibles because they are one and the same. These two primary manuscripts used in the modern versions being of Roman Catholic lineage is another reason the true Christian should sit up and take notice. It was the Roman Catholic church, with their Inquisition, that murdered millions of true Christians in their attempt to wipe out true Christianity. They could not do it so they changed their method of attack to infiltration. Part of that infiltration is the false bibles with their manuscripts and Roman Catholic sympathizing Protestants to push them, Billy Graham being the chief Roman Catholic agent provocateur.

In the 4th edition of the United Bible Societies Greek New Testament, one of the translators is Cardinal Carlo M. Martini of the RC church. The Holman Christian Standard Bible claim they use the 4th edition right in their preface. This means that they no longer hide their infiltrators but put them right out in front of everyone. This is because Christians question nothing and if they did, their seminary trained Pastor would soon quash them or have them kicked out of the church, which is what Rick Warren advocates for anyone who opposes his satanic Purpose Driven Church agenda.

We live in a time when Christians are in a battle for truth and they must take sides. No one can sit on the sidelines anymore because we are all involved. Recently on Pal Talk I had made a statement that the NIV is a Gnostic Book because of its massive attacks on the deity of Christ. I give over 100 verses in an article which prove this. One Christian, who is a Pastor and an NIV advocate said to me that. “Ken, when I need a good laugh, I will go to your site and look at those studies.” The Catholic Church has been so successful in infiltrating the church and stealthily dominating the minds of Christians that they no longer fight for the truth instead they fight against it and this is why Christianity seems to be in disarray.

(Isa 5:20 KJV) Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

My friends let me just warn you that 2005 is not going to be any better. In fact, the attacks on truth are going to escalate. True Christianity is being attacked voraciously from both inside the church and outside the church. You must know what side you are on in the coming persecution. Persecution comes in all forms and much Christian persecution comes from the churches. Go to your NIV Pastor and tell him that this book is wrong and then hand out materials and you will see how fast you are brought before the Sanhedrin of the church but the Lord Jesus gives us a great promise. (
Luke 21:15 KJV) For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. In 2005, you just stand for the truth and leave the results to the Lord, you just be faithful.
