FYI: Disturbing Changes to the NIV


1 comment:

  1. I think this is one of those topics that can get some people really riled up. I grew up using the NIV, there were times that I noticed verses completely missing out of the NIV (for example the text would jump from verse 23 to verse 25- completely taking out verse 24, I wondered about that as a teenager). It wasn't until my husband and I were married, we moved and started going to a church that uses the KJV. I use a Defined King James Version Bible now and love it! In the back it has examples of how the other versions have changed verses to an opposite meaning, and taken out verses. For example, most people don't realize that the NIV is a pro-homosexual version. My sister was totally shocked when I showed her that the word sodomy/sodomite was changed to male shrine prostitue. Of course prostitution is wrong regardless whether or not you are a male or female- this is how EVERYONE views prostitution. But sodomy is not wrong to everyone, there are so many church-goers who believe that God created them as a gay or lesbian. And unfortunately, the NIV writers were not against homosexuality.
    Other verses have taken out the "blood of Jesus" as what redeems us.
    Anyway, sorry for my rambling, very interesting post!
