False Teachers In The Church Promote Many Deceptive Teachings!
Comparing Verses from the NASV to the KJV
Mark 10:24 NASV: “… ‘Children how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!’”
KJV: “.. how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God!”
Trusting in riches and expecting to enter into the kingdom is about as likely as a camel entering through the eye of a needle. Yes it is difficult to enter in because most live in and serve the desires of the flesh, to not trust in riches means to trust in Christ.
Luke 2:33 NASV: “And His father and mother were amazed at the things which were being said about Him.”
KJV: “And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things that were spoken of him.”
God is the father of Jesus Christ, not Joseph! Mary was not the mother of God; she was the mother of Jesus who took on the likeness of human flesh for our sake.
1. Christ is-present – He is always present with the elect in the Spirit
2. Christ was-past – He always existed
3. Christ is to come again- future – He returns to be present in the Spirit and in person
Romans 1:16 NASV: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God…”
KJV: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ…”
The translators often leave out the name of Christ completely, without Christ, the gospel is a useless book.
1 Timothy 3:16 NASV: “… He who was revealed in the flesh.”
KJV: “…God was manifest in the flesh.”
Here they attempt to take away his deity; Christ is the only true God; in the beginning was the Word that was with God, and that Word was God.
1 Timothy 6:1b: “… that the name of God and our doctrine may not be spoken against.”
KJV: “… that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed.”
The doctrine of men is taught as the truth as opposed to that of the Word of Christ; mans religion has somehow superseded God’s word, what a terrible tragedy.
Hebrews 1:3b NASV: “… when He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.”
KJV: “when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.”
Purification of sins was done often under the old law, but the cleansing of all of our sins was accomplished through the blood of Jesus Christ!
John 5:16 NASV: “And for this reason the Jews were persecuting Jesus, because He was doing these things on the Sabbath.”
KJV: “And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.”
He came to his own the tribe of Judah, they received him not and in fact they did kill him (Acts 3:13-15).
We are to meditate on the Word of God and let His word illuminate the path that we walk (Psalm 119:105).
Repent, submit and study the Word for yourselves; ask the Spirit of truth to come upon you and correctly interpret the testimony of Christ, which is the power of God unto your Salvation (Rom1:6).
2 Tim 2:15-16 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.
Declaring that god wants to bless us with everything we desire to satisfy the desires of our flesh is the new gospel presented by the false teachers in the Church, and it is very popular. Preaching about taking up ones cross and suffering with Christ has been replaced with the Pre-tribulation Rapture Deception.
1 Cor 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned
Without the Baptism of the Holy Spirit the truths of Christ cannot be known. One of the greatest lies that these false teachers in the Church present, is that all who accept Christ are automatically Born Again.
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
If Christians who claim to be Born again truly were, all of the false teachers in the Church would be exposed, and their so-called church buildings would be vacant.
2 Cor 4:3-4 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them
