Does YOUR bible teach you to worship New Age gods?
"Years and years previous to this someone had given me a little book about the superiority of the KJV version and I remember quite honestly that I thought that was hilarious. I thought,'Someone has taken a large portion of that person's brain.'" - Gail Riplinger




But the inconsistencies of the new Bible versions shocked Riplinger as she studied the text changes in the new Bible versions. As a college professor she shared Jesus Christ with her college students when they came to her with their personal problems. Together they would look up verses in the Bible to find answers to these problems. Often they would use the student's new version Bible.

To Riplinger's surprise she found over and over that the key elements of salvation, comfort and healing were missing from the verses in these new versions of the Bible. She began to compare the KJV with these new Bible versions and came face to face with the fact that the new Bible versions' texts are changed to accommodate all religions and their'gods,' thus changing theology and removing the truth that will set people free.

Riplinger tells us in a live television interview on her New Age Bible Versions Video that, "New Agers have always said that we need a semantic bridge to bring the world religions all together and we need common names for things. What is happening in New Age literature is that Buddha is disappearing, Buddha being the prophet over in the east. Krishna is disappearing. And even in Luciferian literature Lucifer's name is disappearing and being replaced by the Lord, the Christ, the One and the Spirit.


New Age Bible Versions by author Gail Riplinger

"Now we are seeing a parallel move within the new Bible versions where it's not Jehovah anymore its just'Lord.' It's not Jesus Christ it is just'the Christ.' "They have separated Christ from Jesus in the new Bible versions because they want'the Lord,''the Christ,''the One' and'the Spirit' rather than the personal identity of the historic God of the Old Testament which is Jehovah and the God of the New Testament which is the Lord Jesus Christ."

Riplinger points out that the new versions remove Jesus Christ because, "The religions of the world believe that'god' created all things but not by Jesus Christ." For New Agers, Jesus Christ is too narrow a definition of "god." The different gods of all the world's religions fit neatly in the categories of the Lord, the Christ, the One and the Spirit. Therefore there is no need to proselytize people from other religions because their'god' is really the same as yours and all these'gods' lead down the same "path" to heaven, don't they? John 14:6 reminds us of the truth, "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

Is Jesus of Nazareth The Only Begotten Son of God?

The KJV Retains This Teaching While Most Modern Versions Remove It


 



"No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. " John 1:18


Many beliefs are common to Christianity, regardless of individual denominations. In fact, these beliefs are central elements and tenets of our faith in the Lord Jesus. To have assurance of an eternal life with God, these are the core doctrines or beliefs: the virgin birth of Jesus of Nazareth, His death on the cross for sin, and His shed blood to pay the penalty for sin. The resurrection of the Lord Jesus and His literal second coming are also critical beliefs. These doctrines are essential for eternal life. But there is one doctrine that all the others rest upon. It is the rock bottom, foundation of the Christian faith: Jesus of Nazareth is the only begotten Son of God. Without this core belief, all the others are meaningless. Christianity stands upon the person of Jesus of Nazareth as the only begotten Son from eternity past and into the future forever. He is unique because He is the only begotten Son of God. Any tampering with this doctrine touches the very foundation of our faith.



The KJV teaches that Jesus is the only begotten son of God

There are five key verses from the Holy Bible, Authorized King James Version (KJV), which show clearly that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God. These verses follow:
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:14

No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. John 1:18

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. John 3:16

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. (Notice how He was sent into the world from eternity as the only begotten Son of God) 1 John 4:9
These verses reveal that the Lord Jesus was begotten of the Father. He was from the bosom of the Father. You must believe on the name of the ONLY BEGOTTEN SON OF GOD for eternal life. He was sent into this world from heaven as the only begotten Son of God. Your eternal life depends on the belief that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God. The importance of this doctrine cannot be overstated.

The Bible reveals God has other sons. For example, believers in Jesus are called the sons of God but through adoption. Adam was called the son of God. God gave the angels the title of the sons of God. Israel became God's son, and Solomon sat on the throne of Israel as the son of God. However, the Lord Jesus remains distinguished from all these sons of God. He is singular and unique as the only begotten Son of God with the Father from eternity. He has a different relationship with the Father. Any tampering with the Lord as the only begotten Son of God would just make Him one of many sons of God in the Bible. A verse to show this follows:

To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. (6) And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. Galatians 4:5

Today the very foundation of our faith is under direct attack. Most of the modern Bible translations have altered this doctrine and shake the very foundation of Christianity. Unfortunately, this attempt to undermine our faith appears to be largely ignored. The modern translations have replaced "only begotten" with words that change the person of the Lord Jesus and thus the foundation of the faith.

The NIV removes the teaching of the only begotten son of God

The New International Version (NIV) is one of the most popular translations today. It has completely altered the "only begotten Son" to terms that are false or misleading. The NIV is typical of most of the modern translations. The terms now used in place of "only begotten" are "One and Only" and "only Son." The verses from the NIV follow:
John 1:14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:18 No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the Father's side, has made him known. John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.

1 John 4:9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.

What does "One and Only" mean? One and only what? The Lord Jesus is not God's only Son: this is false as God has many sons. He is God's only begotten Son and thus unique. It is obvious that the modern translations have tampered with the very foundation of Christianity. Using the NIV, you cannot even prove that the Lord Jesus is the only begotten Son of God! Therefore, the NIV fails to substantiate the very foundation of the faith. The NIV and most modern translations are leading people away from the foundation of the faith! It is a subtle but diabolic shift away from historic Christianity towards a generic Jesus that can fit in nicely with other beliefs.

In John 1:14,18 the words "begotten and Son" are left out, while John 3:16,18 and 1 John 4:9 are false as they remove "only begotten" and say "God's only Son." These translations are illegitimate. The modern versions have to be rejected as they are deficient and lack the ability to even prove the very foundation of the faith. These translations are leading believers away from the true person of the Lord Jesus.

If you have the NIV, then you DON'T have the only begotten son of God.
