The New King James Version Bible (which isn't a King James Bible)


What follows is a list of just a few of the corruptions in the New King James Version (NKJV). I picked the NKJV to illustrate the problems with the new Bibles because many are under the mistaken impression that it's just an updated King James Bible. If you compare versions such as the New American Standard Bible (NASB), New International Version (NIV), English Standard Version (ESV), New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) and many others, you will many of these same corruptions and even more. When will a glimmer of dawn enter the minds of people so they can comprehend there is a problem when the Roman Catholic Church that denied people of Bibles for hundreds of years has a hand in the translation and publication of the new bibles? Why is that church OK with various new bibles and wants nothing to do with the King James Bible? If people weren't so blind they could see the fox is guarding the hen house.

For those interested in other versions not discussed here, I'd recommend the book, Look What's Missing by David W. Daniels available from Chick Publications and probably other sources. It would be nice if the various denominational outlets would sell this book and abandon the marketing of the NKJV but that probably won't happen because money isn't the root of ALL evil.
