Scripture Verse King James Bible New International Version Comments
Acts 8:37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. KJV This verse is NOT in the NIV. The KJV is giving us the requirements to being baptized. Once again the NIV is withholding vital information.
Acts 24:6 Who also hath gone about to profane the temple: whom we took, and would have judged according to our law. KJV and even tried to desecrate the temple; so we seized him. NIV The NIV does not reveal their intentions as to what will be done with him. What about a legal trial?
Acts 24:7 But the chief captain Lysias came upon us, and with great violence took him away out of our hands. KJV This verse is NOT in the NIV. Perhaps the powers behind the NIV do not want to advertise that evil can be overpowered.
Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. KJV Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, NIV No wonder we see so many following their own way, the NIV leaves one with the impression that it is not necessary to abandon the flesh and it's desires.
Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. KJV And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. NIV Actually God works for the good of all mankind as He did by being crucified. However that is different than "all things work together" and the assurance that message brings.
Romans 16:24 The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. KJV This verse is NOT in the NIV The NIV missed another opportunity to mention Jesus Christ as Lord, and ask His blessing on believers and the church.
Romans 16:27 To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen. KJV To the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ! Amen. NIV The KJV makes it plain there is none wise but God. The NIV leaves the door open to acknowledge other "gods" but admits only one of them is wise.
Galatians 4:7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. KJV So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir. NIV The NIV is attempting to by-pass Christ here. We are heirs ONLY through Christ. No other way!
Ephesians 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world has been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: KJV and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things. NIV Once again the NIV would have you believe you can by-pass Jesus Christ. See John 1:3
Ephesians 3:14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, KJV For this reason I kneel before the father, NIV The NIV would have you kneel before father who? They also again neglect and attempt to by-pass Jesus Christ!
Philippians 1:16 The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds: KJV The latter do so in love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. NIV The NIV switches verses 16 and 17.
Philippians 1:17 but the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defense of the gospel. KJV The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. NIV The NIV footnote states: "Some late manuscripts have verses 16 and 17 in reverse order." Folks, ALL the manuscripts have it as the KJV uses, EXCEPT for the TWO manuscripts used by Rome, and by all new translations.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. KJV I can do everything through him who gives me strength. NIV Who is the "him" in the NIV? Is it the anti-Christ, Satan, or whom? You fill in the blank. This is dangerous folks.
Colossians 1:2 To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ which are at Colosse: Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. KJV To the holy and faithful brothers in Christ at Colosse: Grace and peace to you from God our Father. NIV The NIV seldom passes up the opportunity to ignore and by-pass Jesus Christ, as they have done here.
Colossians 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: KJV in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. NIV There can be NO redemption or forgiveness of sins without the blood of Jesus Christ! Why are they keeping this information from you?
Colossians 3:6 For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: KJV Because of these the wrath of God is coming. NIV This is a warning against disobedience in the KJV but the NIV is withholding vital information!
