What’s Missing?

Let’s take the advice of most modern pastors now and compare different translations.  I’m using Quickverse 3.0 and here is what it looks like when you look at Acts 8:37.  The entire verse is missing out of all the modern translations.  This, according to them, is because we now have “better, more ancient” manuscripts that give a more accurate reading of the original copies of the New Testament.  I always heard in Bible College that “no doctrine was harmed in the reading of these new Bibles.”  What about baptism being administered to those who believe, rather than just performing a religious ritual, giving man a salvation that is by works and not faith?  This is the doctrine that is under attack when the modern Bibles omit Acts 8:37.  The eunuch asks the question, “what doth hinder me to be baptized.”  The answer to his question is important and necessary.  “If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest.”  To omit this essential statement establishes the idea that belief is not necessary, only performance.  We are saved by grace, through faith (belief), not by works.

  1. Since I have taken the stance that the KJV is the word of God and believe it, even if I don’t understand it, God has shown me so much!

    It saddens me that so many can’t bring themselves to just simply submit to the Wisdom of the Spirit contained in its pages.

    A few years back a man was arrested here for feeding Humming Birds with syrup made from Nutri-Sweet.

    The poor things would not leave the sweetness and would starve to death in a few hours.

    I am just struck by the parallel of how all these new versions are just like that syrup. Sickenly sweet telling you what you want to hear and not the truth. All the while you are starving to death.

    I believe I will just stick to the old fashioned GOODNESS of the KJV.

  2. I am with you Brian. When I first heard about the difference I went through each of my Bibles and saw the truth. God save me from falling into the deception that is in my church. He pulled me out and threw much prayer found Pastor Mike. Yes I am there in church in my living room via internet and yet feel I’m at Bethel Church. Even pointed the deception to my old pastor and fell on deaf ear.

    I too will stick with the King James Bible.

  3. I am reading the other comments. And I agree. English is a second language for me so I find the King James Bible particularly difficult just from the point of view of the language, but, I can understand most of it and I am learning to understand the old English, because once you read the KJV and compare it with the fake Bibles there is no way back! Thank you Lord for choosing a humble servant like Pastor Mike Hoggard to teach us your Word. Bless him and prosper this Ministry so more people like us get to hear the Gospel!
