Scripture Verse King James Bible New International Version Comments
Mark 9:29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting. KJV Hr replied, "This kind can come out only by prayer." NIV No Power in the partial truth of the NIV. Satan can continue unhindered.
Mark 9:44 Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. This verse is NOT in the NIV You need to know this! Hell is a terrible and eternal place.
Mark 10:21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me. KJV Jesus looked at him and loved him. "One thing you lack," he said. "Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me." NIV Living a Christian life is not mandatory in order to follow Christ, so no Cross to bear according to the NIV.
Mark 10:24 And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God! KJV The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, "Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God!" NIV It is not hard to enter the kingdom of God EXCEPT for those whose trust is placed in their riches instead of Christ.
Mark 11:26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses. KJV This verse is NOT in the NIV. The NIV is withholding vital information regarding your Salvation! We must forgive!
Mark 15:28 And the Scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors. KJV This verse is NOT in the NIV. The NIV turned down an opportunity to proclaim treatment of Christ and the accuracy of the Old Testament Scriptures and Prophets.
Luke 1:1 Forasmuch as many have taken in hand to set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us. KJV Many have undertaken to draw up an account of the things that have been fulfilled among us. NIV The NIV makes no mention as to the things that were BELIEVED. There is a big difference in things being fulfilled and things being believed.
Luke 1:15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb. KJV for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He is never to take wine or other fermented drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even from birth. NIV The NIV presents as though the wine etc. has to be locked up to keep him from it. Also in the NIV John did not get the Holy Ghost until later - at birth. KJV says he received the Holy Ghost BEFORE birth!
Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised. KJV "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight to the blind, to release the oppressed. NIV Good news is no substitute for hearing the Gospel. No healing for the broken-hearted in the NIV
Luke 9:56 For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village. KJV and they went to another village. NIV The NIV does not tell you WHY Jesus came to earth or even suggest men need to be saved.
Luke 11:2-4 And he said unto them, When ye pray, say, Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, as in heaven, so in earth. 3 Give us day by day our daily bread. 4 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive everyone that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. KJV He said to them, "When you pray, say: "'Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, 3 Give us each day our daily bread. 4 Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation." NIV Who, or what ,would the NIV have you pray to? Where is the one they call "Father?" Whose will be done? The KJV makes it clear that we are to pray to God in heaven and ask His will be done.
John 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. KJV I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life. NIV The NIV don't care WHAT you believe, just believe. Satan believes, but is condemned to Hell.
John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; KJV And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever. NIV KJV says to PRAY for Comforter. NIV says ASK for a Counselor.
