A Sad Situation!

Churches Accepting Apostates

·       Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8b).


·       Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhorting you to contend [strive, fight for] earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints.  For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ

(Jude, verses 3-4).

·       Although these verses were used yesteday, I felt that further comments from reliable resources would be more confimation and as an encouragement to the readers.

Comment from NKJV Study Bible

·       Jude is writing to christians to warn them of crafty false teachers who have infiltrated the church. The fith delivered to the saints is the apostolic teaching given believers in the earliest days of the church. It is this teaching that was being perverted and for what Christians must contend. The corruption of “the faith” is found in self-centered, and unloving behavior, immoral or sensual lifestyles, in distorted or deceitful teachings.


·       Brother and sisters, I believe Jude sums up everything that is going on in the church today. Now, to the message. These types of people are polluting the Gospel, with new translations (adding and taking away from the Word, minimizing its true meaninig, scripture twisting, etc.). Example: Some scriptures are omitted from the original version/translations; in the margins, rather than being inserted like original scriptures.


Various Contradictions and Omissions in Bible Translations

·       King James Version (KJV), New Internatonal Version (NIV), New Amercian Standard (NAS), New Living Translation (NLT)


·       For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. Matthew 18:11. NIV (omitted), NAS (footnote casts doubt), NLT (omitted).


·       Get thee behind me, Satan (Luke 4:8). NIV (omitted), NAS (omitted), NLT (omitted).


·       And when they heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out (John 8:9). NLT (omitted).


·       If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God (Acts 8:37). NIV (omitted), NAS (footnotes cast doubt, some editions just omit it).


·       Let us not fight against God (Acts 23:9). NIV, NAS, NLT (omitted).


·       Thou shalt not bear false witness (Romans 13:9) NIV, NAS, NLT (omitted).

·       It is important for you to be aware of what is coming into your ears and be able to discern if it’s true or false. How do you know what is true and what is false? By reading and studying the Word of God for yourself. And another way God will help you to know is, having people like me and others to write messages. That’s how much God loves His children.

·       I use some of these translations, but in studying I always compare them with the original Bible (KJV). Although thou, thee and ye are used throughout this version, I find it closer to the truth. The one that I use in conjunction with the King James is the New King James Version.

·       We need a revival in the land; we need to go back to the Old Landmark; we need to stay in the service of the Lord!
