NASB Bible Translator Says,'I'm In Trouble With The Lord.'
Dr. Frank Logsdon, member of the translation committee for the New American Standard Version (NASB), has denounced his work on that Bible and urged all Christians to return to the Authorized Version, commonly known as the King James Bible.




Although the most popular translation at the present time is the New International Version, both of these modern Bibles are based upon the same Catholic text, and Logsdon's concerns apply to both. Being involved with the project from the very beginning, Logsdon helped publisher F. Dewey Lockman with the feasibility study that led to the translation. He interviewed some of the translators, sat with them, and even wrote the preface. But soon the questions began coming in.

His old friend, Dr. David Otis Fuller, began to put his finger on the many shortcomings of the Catholic text used in all modern Bibles, which include the NASB and today's NIV. Logsdon finally said, "I'm in trouble; I can't refute these arguments; it's wrong; it's terribly wrong; it's frightfully wrong; and what am I going to do about it?" Logsdon shocked publisher Dewey Lockman by writing, "I must under God renounce every attachment to the New American Standard." Logsdon then began to travel extensively, trying to make up for his error by explaining to people the very simple reasons why the Authorized Version is the one Bible which is absolutely 100% correct.

Along with many other scholars, Logsdon had blindly accepted the basic argument used today to support the use of the two Catholic manuscripts, the Vaticanus and the Sinaiticus, in all modern Bibles. The "experts" claim that these are the oldest manuscripts in existence, so they must be the best! In one of his many public speeches, Logsdon explained, "When there is an omission that might be observed, they put in the margin,'Not in the oldest manuscripts.' But they don't tell you what those oldest manuscripts are. What oldest manuscripts? Or they say,'Not in the best manuscripts.' What are the best manuscripts? They don't tell you. You see how subtle that is? The average man sees a little note in the margin which says'not in the better manuscripts' and he takes for granted they are scholars and they must know, and then he goes on. That's how easily one can be deceived."


Brook Foss Westcot's work has done much of the damage that is responsible for the corrupt bible translations we have today.

It was only after Logsdon took the time to really look into this issue that he was horrified to see that he had played right into Satan's hands, and helped to take many verses out of the Scriptures. Logsdon admitted, "The deletions are absolutely frightening." The huge number of English Bible translations currently available has produced untold millions of dollars in sales, but does anyone believe that they have produced a modern Church which is more knowledgeable about their Bible? No, it has produced the Siamese twins of confusion and falling away from truth. All modern Bible translators today use, without question, the New Testament text produced by the famous scholars Hort and Westcott.

The King James Bible vs. The New International Version

Things That Are Different Are Not The Same


"Where the word of a king is, there is power" Ecclesiastes 8:4



It is said by many that the New International Version bible is just the same as the King James, but just easier to read and in more "modern" english. Is that so, or is it something very different from the King James. Rather than getting into a long and complicated argument about it, let me just show you a simple, side-by-side comparison chart of a few verses from the KJV, with their counterpart from the NIV. What this will show you is that the people who created the NIV are in direct violation of Revelation 22:18,19m which says -

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."

So with that, let's compare the KJV and the NIV side-by-side, and you be the judge. The words which appear in bold on the KJV side of the chart are words and phrases that have been removed from the NIV.

Question: Aren't some of these things included in the NIV in the footnotes?

Answer: That is not the same as including them in the text. When a young Christian sees these passages have been moved to the footnotes, he or she will assume that they are probably not really part of God's Word. After all, the translators did not include them in the text, but simply implied that "some" manuscripts include them. What they are not told is that the vast majority of texts used by the early church included these words. They are God's Words! Chick Publications
   
The above chart shows 10 or 12 examples of how the NIV has removed the words from the word of God. Do YOU want a bible that cuts out the holiness of God, removes lots of the promises, and in some cases just deletes the verse altogether?

Or do you want the true, pure words that God Himself wrote? Because there is power on in those words, and not in the weak, powerless words of man.

Decide for yourself. Just remember that God promises to curse those who mess with the word He wrote. Pray the Holy Spirit to show you the truth.
