Today, Christians around the globe are using a wide variety of Bible Versions which resulted from the massive translation of the Bible into local languages for the easier understanding of the Christian teachings that were initially written in one original Hebrew language. Some of the commonly used Bible Versions include Good News Bible, Revised Standard Bible, New King James Version(NKJV), and New International Version (NIV). For this reason, Christians are not selective in choosing which Bible Version to use because they assume they carry the same message, of which they are wrong!
Following the series of research conducted by Bible Scholars, some of the Bible Versions corrupted and violated the original message and teachings of the Bible, the best example is New International Version (NIV).
There are many pieces of evidence to justify this stand. I will use the New King James Version as a reference scale to outline some of these corruptions done to the Bible.
1. There are Many Missing Verses
Luke Chapter 9:56 from New King James Version says: "For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives but to save them. And they went to another village." But according to the New International Version, "Then He and His disciples went to another village."
It omits a powerful and very important part of the verse to Christians which talks about salvation. Other omitted verses include Matthew 18:11, 17:21, 23:14, Mark 7:16, 9:44, 9:46, 11:26, 15:28, Luke 17:36, John 5:3-4, Acts 8:37, 15:34, 24:6-8, 28:29, Romans 16:24, 1John 5:7-8.
2. NIV Contradicts Other Bible Translations.
This makes it difficult to understand the initial meaning that was intended to be driven. In Revelation 8:13, NKJV says an angel while NIV says an eagle. Also, Luke 4:44, according to NKJV says synagogues of Galilee while according to NIV says synagogues of Judea.
3. Denies Christ as The Creator
Ephesians 3:9 according to NIV says: "And to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things."
The same verse according to NKJV says: "And to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ."
4. Suggests that Joseph is The Father of Jesus Christ.
According to the Bible teachings and Messianic prophecies, Jesus was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit. Joseph was just His maiden father. But according to NIV Luke 2:33 says: "The child's father and mother marveled at what was said about him." This wrong because NKJV says: "And Joseph and His mother marveled at those things which were spoken of Him."
5. It Changed Christ's Lord's Prayer.
According to NIV in Luke 11:2 says: "He said to them, "When you pray, say: "Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come." According to NKJV says: "So He said to them, "When you pray, say: "Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your Kingdom come. You will be done on Earth as it is in heaven."
Also, according to NIV in Matthew 6:13 says: "And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one but NKJV says: "And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours are the kingdom and the power and glory forever. Amen."
