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 offered to you by Chick Publications. 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.

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.
(2 Cor 2:11 KJV) Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
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.
776 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 776 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 Amazing Fact About the King James Bible - The King James Bible has a hidden history behind it.
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.
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.
Bible Doctrines Affected by Modern Versions - The Modern Version Proponents believe that no doctrines are affected in the modern versions which is a total falsehood
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.
The Danger of Changing God's Word or Hananiah's Disorder - Changing God's word has consequences including death!
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.
Daniel 9:26 and the Apostasy of Dan Wallace - Dan Wallace attacks the vicarious atonement of Christ!
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.
The End of the World or Age? - Find out why the King James translators used the word "world" and not "age."
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.
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!
Flagons or Raisin Cakes - Hosea 3:1 - Is Flagons or Raisin Cakes the proper translation?
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.

Is the King James Only Position a cult or is the Modern Version Only Position a Cult? - King James people are considered to be a cult by the modern version only group. Is there any substance to that?
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?
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.
King James Version - The Myth of Early Revisions - Did the KJV have early revsions as the modern version proponents claim?
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.

Miniscule 2427 - Here is another manuscript which has been found to be a fraud.
Modern Versions Do Not Agree With Each Other - Another trait of the modern versions is that many verses do not agree with each other. Each version says something different.

How can one come to a solid conclusion when the studies are built upon sand?

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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
