Over the last few years here, there are many who claim all bibles are the same and have errors. I however do not hold to that position. Though many
scholars do they basically say, as in the introduction of the NIV says, "The committee has again been reminded that every human effort is flawed -
including this revision of the NIV".
The revision this committee alludes to is the 3rd of 1984.
In saying such they lump in the AKJV of the Bible because they believe it is not a preservation of God, Buy only a preservation of man, as Charles
Stanley says in his introduction to the NIV/KJV side by side Bible, which he claims concerning they were faithful to the "Original Manuscripts", of
which their are none housed in any school or museum in the entire world.
In short the NIV is taken from the Westcott and Hort Greek New Testament, which was compiled from the Alexandrian, the Vaticanicus, the Sinatanicus
Which was used for the creation of the English Jesuit Rheims Bible of 1582. The Westcott and Hort Greek New Testament also produced the NWT of the
JW's, and every other English Translation since 1881.
I have not been posting on ATS for the last week as I was busy with a new side by side KJV/NIV bible to show the changes to the KING JAMES AUTHORIZED
ENGLISH TEXT. You will notice if you read both versions that the NIV takes great liberty with the English text, it changes word from nous to
adjectives thereby having to change sentence structure and the syntax of the English as well. The NIV removed English words and replaced them with
what they claim were more modern speech but as noted above they had to change the sentence structure and nouns to Adjectives and pronouns in order to
do so. What one does this it is a complete change of the Text all together.
The committee on the NIV and the other versions as well, claim that there are not a few words changed to make it clearer but just read along side on
by one and you will see it does not clarity but confuses God's words, making it nothing but a disguise of the Devil in that when you get to Genesis
Chapter 3 the Devil removes and adds words to the words of God as spoken earlier. This is how he threw Eve into transgression by beguilment 1 Cor
Here is the first Chapter side by side and all the changes the NIV 1984 made (please note that the NIV has not only been revised but they later made
the NIV I, NIV II, the NIV III, the Readers NIV, and are currently on another more accurate "Newer" translation of the NIV. the forward slash
symbolize the deletion of a word or a deletion or changes in grammar mark (ie Paragraph marks, periods, commas, colons, semi-colons, etc), the circle
means an addition of the above as well. A circle or a forward slash with an arrow attached is a movement of a AKJV word. The positive and negative
signs are showing that additions and separations were made in the sentence of the NIV
see their are 578 changes made by the NIV Committee concerning the AKJV in just the first Chapter alone. I am no mathematician but if this could be
calculated it would mean that there are roughly a little over 30 thousand changes to the NIV Bible.
The Below Chart hows that AKJV used over 5,000 text to make it translation and the NIV and every English version since 1881 and the Jesuit Rheims
Bible of 1582 use a little over 40 text to make their translation.
