One of the most evil of the modern versions on the market today is the New International Version. I have compiled 102 verses which omit the name of Jesus, Christ, Lord, Son of Man, etc. These names are associated with the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. This attack is designed to make Jesus appear that He is less than God. The inferior Roman Catholic manuscripts used to underlie the NIV are very corrupt and are from a satanic line of corruption. After reading these verses and seeing the evidence, if you still feel that the NIV is an accurate translation, then you are an unteachable person in denial of visual truth and your ministry will always be a weak one. The Bible is about the Lord Jesus Christ and is not to be transformed into a socialist love book accepting all forms of sin under the phony guise of an “accept all roads” love. The translations that attempt to belittle Him, proves that these new modern versions are not God glorifying but are enemy plants in the naïve church.
Please scroll down to the bottom for information as to why we see so many verses which leave out the Deity of Christ by either omitting His name or His Divine Title.  It is more than just poor scholarship, it is a revived ancient heresy.

(Mat 8:29)
KJV - And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?

The following verse is a quick diversion from the subject at hand, nevertheless it is another serious attack on the Lord Jesus Christ by the NIV.

Luke 2:22
KJV - And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord;

NIV - When the time of their purification according to the Law of Moses had been completed, Joseph and Mary took him to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord

If you notice in the above verse, that Mary, after giving birth was required to go through a period of purification for 42 days according to the law found in Leviticus 12. If the child was a male, he was to be circumcised on the 8th day but the child was not to be purified, only the mother. If you notice the King James Bible states that clearly. However, when we look at the NIV, it clearly states that both Mary and Jesus had to go through purification. Jesus Christ was sinless and did not need to be purified from any sin, yet the NIV teaches that Jesus had to be purified. They are teaching that the Lord Jesus Christ was born with sin and had to be purified according to the Law. The King James Bible specifically states that only Mary was to be purified. This is because the Textus Receptus uses a singular, genitive, feminine gender pronoun “
auths” (autâs) specifically meaning “her.“ The false Greek text changes that pronoun to “autwn” which is a genitive plural personal pronoun. According to its usage, “Autôn” can be used as both feminine and masculine. However, it is not used of both genders in one word such as above. For all we know, the NIV could also be including Joseph in that purification process. The word “their” in the NIV text is very vague. The bottom line is that a singular word was changed to a plural word in the corrupted texts, resulting in another attack on the Lord Jesus Christ in the area of Him being without sin.

(Luke 4:41)
KJV - And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ.

Why the name of the Lord Jesus is separated from deity in many verses!
In many verses in the modern versions, such as the NIV, (as you have already seen) you will notice that when the name "Jesus Christ" is mentioned, you will see either "Jesus" is omitted or "Christ" is omitted.  There is a reason for this.  The line of manuscripts which underlie the modern versions came out of Alexandria, Egypt.  Alexandria was the center of learning and had a library of 600,000 books, so all the scholars went to Alexandria to learn. However, it was also the center of heresy. Great heretics such as Origen was there. Origen was a Gnostic and an enemy of Christianity. A great heresy had begun to surface among this Anti-Christ crowd and that was the belief that matter was evil and good could not co-exist in the same body. As a matter of fact, the Gnostics believed that only through knowledge can one become a free person. In the Greek, knowledge is “gnosis.”

From that camp came a heretical belief about the Lord Jesus which is openly seen in the modern versions. The modern versions are Gnostic in origin and are by no means the Word of God. In the second century the belief rose about the Lord Jesus that He was just a common man of tremendous morality which resulted in God adopting Him into His family, making Him a divine son. They believed that Jesus received the “Christ Spirit” at His baptism. This means that Jesus became Christ at His baptism. This teaching was widely accepted and the fact that Jesus was Christ from eternity was rejected. They believed that Jesus’ flesh and the Christ spirit were united for a period of time, but they remained separate personages.

This same belief system was adapted by a man named Nestorius who also believed and taught that Christ was two persons, flesh and Spirit, and the divine part of Christ remained separate from the human part of Christ. It became known as Nestorianism and was condemned as a heresy in 431 AD. Nestorius was the Patriarch of Constantinople from 428-431 AD. Even though he was deposed for being a heretic, the teaching spread widely.

Now enter the modern Bibles. Since their manuscript line became corrupted in the second century by Origen and other Gnostic heretics, the modern versions continue to render the Gnostic heresies of the 2nd Century. This is why you will see in the modern versions, the separation of Jesus from Christ, because the modern versions and their translators do not believe that Jesus is God. God never gave His Word to unsaved men to correct the Manuscripts. In 1881, the Gnostic manuscripts were revived by two Roman Catholic Professors from Cambridge, Hort and Westcott, who disbelieved the deity of Christ and created the Revised Version of 1881, which was not a revised version but a completely new translation from the Gnostic manuscripts from Alexandria. So when your Pastor stands up in front of the Congregation and touts the NIV as being the best translation, he is being an intellectual idiot because he is using a cursed book.

No church or Christian will ever grow using the Gnostic Scriptures. They are a replacement of the true Bible, the King James Bible which was translated openly and with 47 Godly men on the committee. If you have been duped by your seminary trained Pastor into using a Gnostic Bible, then you need to change back to the King James Bible, or else you will be using a book from hell. This is why God gave us warnings in Scripture concerning the denial of Christ. If you use a modern version, then you are advocating that Jesus is not God:

(1 John 2:22 KJV) Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

(1 John 4:2-3 KJV) Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: {3} And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

(1 John 5:1 KJV) Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

(2 John 1:7 KJV) For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

The Bible calls these people who reject the Lord Jesus as coming in the flesh as liars and deceivers.  Do you still want to use their Bibles?

(Rev 21:8 KJV) But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

So your eternal soul depends on how you view Christ and the only way we can view Him is through the eyes of Scripture. If you use a Gnostic version, then you are siding with the Gnostics that Christ is not God. If you do not view Him as God, then He is not your Savior either. It is that simple! Choose you this day whom you will serve, either serve the intellectual idiots with their Anti-Christ versions or serve the Lord with the only God glorifying Bible we have today, the King James Bible.
