EVOLUTIONIST: Amber – the fossilised resin of conifer trees – provides a unique means of protecting intricate samples of the past. This MOSQUITO, lying trapped for 45 million years in a piece of amber, is almost perfectly preserved.

CREATIONIST: Wow! The mosquito today in 2018 must have evolved tremendously then and look completely different? Mmm, looks the same to me.

EVOLUTIONIST: Ok, bad example. Let’s look at this 50-53 million year old FLY, which would have evolved nicely.

fly_amber

CREATIONIST: Er, it looks pretty much the same as this FLY in 2018.

EVOLUTIONIST: Right ok then, this 50-53 million year old SPIDER would have easily evolved over time.

CREATIONIST: Well, erm, no. Here’s a spider in 2018:

EVOLUTIONIST: Right that’s it! I’ve left the best until last – the ANT. Ha, you’re in for it now. This 50-53 million year old ant has definitely changed.

ant_amber

CREATIONIST: Sorry my friend, but that would be a ‘no’ too. Here’s the ant in 2018:

ant_2018

CREATIONIST: Shall we go on.

EVOLUTIONIST: No.

Friends, don’t be deceived by the false teaching of evolution. Question everything scientists, teachers, professors, etc., say to you, and you will soon see that evolution of man, animals, the earth and universe, etc., is just a bunch of nonsense.

The ‘New King James Version’ is the deadliest of them all!


No Comments

First published in 1979. This is probably the deadliest version of all the ‘modern translations’, because its editors have succeeded in deceiving Christians on two main points:

  1. That it’s a King James Bible (which is a lie), and
  2. That it’s based on the Textus Receptus (which is only a partial truth).

Below are 15 bits of helpful information on how to deal with Christians who have and are being deceived by the ‘money-makers’:

1

Everything within the NKJV is copyrighted by Thomas Nelson Publishers, while there is no copyright today on the text of the Authorized Version King James Holy Bible (AV).

2

The NKJV logo is a “666” symbol of the pagan trinity, which was used in the ancient Egyptian mysteries. There’s nothing “new” about the NKJV logo. It is a “666” symbol of the pagan trinity which was used in the ancient Egyptian mysteries. It was also used by Satanist Aleister Crowley around the turn of this century. The symbol can be seen on the New King James Bible, on certain rock albums (like Led Zepplin’s), or you can see it on the cover of such New Age books as The Aquarian Conspiracy.

Gail Riplinger states that this same tri-part symbol is found concealed in the tail of the Green Dragon, illustrated in Harry E. Wedeck’s occult classic volume, Treasury of Witchcraft. Moreover, it is similar to the logo of the immense Krupp Works, the German manufacturing giant that was one of the most important producers for Adolf Hitler’s Nazi war machine.

3

The NKJV has an estimated 100,000 translation changes – that is over 80 changes per page, and about 3 changes per verse! A substantial number of these changes bring the NKJV in line with Alexandrian perversions such as the NIV and the RSV.

4

The NKJV ignores the Textus Receptus (what the AV is based on) over 1,200 times, while passing off as being true to the text.

5

Omissions in the NKJV include:

  • 22 omissions of “hell”,
  • 23 omissions of “blood”,
  • 44 omissions of “repent”,
  • 50 omissions of “heaven”,
  • 51 omissions of “God”,
  • 66 omissions of “Lord”.

The term “JEHOVAH” is completely omitted.

The NKJV makes a very serious doctrinal error when dealing with the word “JEHOVAH” in Exodus 6:3. They change the word “JEHOVAH” to “LORD” thus making the Bible to contradict itself. Even the corrupt “New World Translation” (Jehovah’s Witnesses Bible) has a better rendering of this passage.

So what does Exodus 6:3 say? Please read carefully…

And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them. – Exodus 6:3

Now please note what the NKJV says…

“I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as God Almighty, but by My name, LORD, I was not known to them.” (NKJV)

If you will take a concordance and go back to Genesis 1 and go through to Exodus 6:3 you will notice that the word “LORD” is mentioned 242 times.

Did anyone before Exodus know God by the name of “LORD” before Exodus 6:3? The answer is a resounding, YES! Look it up for yourself.

  • Adam & Eve knew – Genesis 4:1
  • Enos knew – Genesis 4: 26
  • Noah knew – Genesis 8: 20
  • Shem knew – Genesis 9:26
  • Nimrod knew – Genesis 10:9
  • Abraham knew – Genesis 12:7-8
  • King of Sodom knew – Genesis 14:22
  • Sarah knew – Genesis 16:2; 18:14
  • Hagar knew – Genesis 16:11
  • Lot knew – Genesis 19:14
  • Abimelech knew – Genesis 20:4
  • Eliezor knew – Genesis 24:3-12
  • Rebekah knew – Genesis 24:18
  • Laban and Bethuel knew – Genesis 24:50
  • Isaac knew – Genesis 25:21
  • Abimelech, Ahuzzath, & Phichol knew – Genesis 26:28
  • Jacob knew – Genesis 27:20
  • Leah knew – Genesis 29:32
  • Rachel knew – Genesis 30:24
  • Laban knew – Genesis 30:27
  • Joseph knew – Genesis 39:2-3
  • Pharaoh knew – Exodus 3:18
  • Moses & Aaron knew – Exodus 5:1

So, to eliminate the word “JEHOVAH” is not only poor scholarship, but also perverts and damages the text, making it contradictory. It is a key passage that shows God as He reveals Himself BY ANOTHER NAME to mankind. Someone on the translation committee evidently does not like the name, “JEHOVAH”.

The term “NEW TESTAMENT”, is completely omitted.

It is interesting to note that Hebrews 9:15-20 in the NKJV lines up with the New World Translation (Jehovah’s Witnesses Bible).

6

The NKJV demotes the Lord Jesus Christ – John 1:3, the AV says that all things were made “by” Jesus Christ, but in the NKJV, all things were just made “through” Him. The word “Servant” replaces “Son” in Acts 3:13 and 3:26. “Servant” replaces “child” in Acts 4:27 and 4:30. The word “Jesus” is omitted from Mark 2:15, Hebrews 4:8, and Acts 7:45.

7

The NKJV confuses people about salvation. In Hebrews 10:14 it replaces “are sanctified” with “are being sanctified”, and it replaces “are saved” with “are being saved” in 1 Corinthians 1:18 and 2 Corinthians 2:15. The words “may believe” have been replaced with “may continue to believe” in 1 John 5:13. The old straight and “narrow” way of Matthew 7:14 has become the “difficult” way in the NKJV.

8

In 2 Corinthians 10:5 the AV reads “casting down imaginations”, but the NKJV reads “casting down arguments”. The word “thought”, which occurs later in the verse, matches “imaginations”, not “arguments”. This change weakens the verse.

9

The AV tells us to reject an “heretick” after the second admonition in Titus 3:10. The NKJV tells us to reject a “divisive man”. How nice! Now the Alexandrians and Ecumenicals have justification for rejecting anyone they wish to label as “divisive men”.

10

According to the NKJV, no one would stoop so low as to “corrupt” God’s word. No, they just “peddle” it (2 Cor. 2:17). The reading matches the Alexandrian versions.

The AV correctly says, “For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God …. ” But the NKJV, NASV, NIV and RSV, change “corrupt” to “peddling”. Is there any great difference between peddling (selling, or making a gain of) the word of God and corrupting (adulterating) it? Of course there is, and one does not have to be a Greek scholar to decide which word is correct. When this warning was given in the 1st Century, was there any way for people to peddle (make a gain of) God’s word? Of course not — they were suffering for it. The warning clearly refers to corrupting God’s word, something that was common then as it is now. Only in our day has it ever been possible to peddle (make a gain of) the Bible. With its huge profits from the sale of many different Bible versions, the Thomas Nelson Publishers is both corrupting and peddling God’s word.

11

Since the NKJV has “changed the truth of God into a lie”, it has also changed Romans 1:25 to read “exchanged the truth of God for the lie”. This reading matches the readings of the new perversions, so how say ye it’s a King James Bible?

12

The NKJV gives us no command to “study” God’s word in 2 Timothy 2:15.

13

The word “science” is replaced with “knowledge” in 1 Timothy 6:20, although “science” has occurred in every edition of the AV since 1611! How say ye it’s a King James Bible?

14

The Jews “require” a sign, according to 1 Corinthians 1:22 (and according to Jesus Christ – John 4:48), but the NKJV says they only “request” a sign. They didn’t “request” one when signs first appeared in Exodus 4, and there are numerous places throughout the Bible where God gives Israel signs when they haven’t requested anything (Exo. 4, Exo. 31:13, Num. 26:10, I Sam. 2:34, Isa. 7:10-14, Luke 2:12, etc). They “require” a sign, because signs are a part of their national heritage.

15

The AV reading in 2 Corinthians 5:17 says that if any man is in Christ he is a new “creature”, which matches the words of Christ in Mark 16:15. The cross reference is destroyed in the NKJV, which uses the word “creation”.

As a final note, we’d like to point out how the NKJV is very inconsistent in it’s attempt to update the language of the AV. The preface to the NKJV states that previous “revisions” of the KJV have “sought to keep abreast of changes in English speech”, and also that they too are taking a “further step toward this objective”. However, when taking a closer look at the language of the NKJV, we find that oftentimes they are stepping BACKWARDS!

Some will argue that the changes noted do not affect any fundamental Bible doctrine. We strongly disagree. Is not the verbal inspiration of the Scriptures a fundamental doctrine? Is not every word of the Bible important? Jesus Christ said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4). He also said, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matt. 24:35). Since Christ is concerned about every word, we should also be concerned about every word and raise a voice of protest whenever scholarly sleight of hand is discovered in any modern version, including the NKJV.

Many today are purchasing NKJV Bibles for 3 reasons:

  1. Many pastors and Christian leaders are highly recommending it.
  2. They have been assured by translators and publishers that the NKJV is based upon the same Hebrew and Greek texts used by the KJV translators. However, as already mentioned, such a claim is simply not true and can be easily documented by comparing the wording of the NKJV with the NIV, NASV, RSV and other versions whose translators admittedly used other Hebrew and Greek texts.
  3. The NKJV is supposedly easier to read and understand, but its impurities actually make it doubly deceptive and dangerous.

There are so many other things we could look at here from the NKJV preverting the actual gospel message to attacking the diety of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, but we would be here all year. Anyway, it shouldn’t take a whole page of this stuff to convince a genuine, honest, true follower of Christ that there’s something wrong here with this so called ‘bible’

The New King James Bible just another in the ever growing line of counterfeit, money-making ‘bibles’! Stick with the ONLY TRUE word of God – the Authorized Version King James Holy Bible.

When Irish Eyes Are Smiling (for the death of a child)


6 Comments

This very day I am ashamed, disgusted, and saddened to have Irish blood running through my veins.

Not only did Ireland vote ‘Yes’ FOR abortions, but the people also celebrated like it was some great fun party time.

The world looks at a woman as being “pregnant”, but God does NOT. God’s term used throughout His word, is a woman being “with child”. No wonder the modern day ‘scholars’ and ‘intellectuals’ wanted that term removed from the Bible. Perhaps if these same women in celebration were constantly told that a woman is “with child”, then things might have been different. Perhaps the people in this video would not be rejoicing over the mass murder of children:

It’s so sad to watch the destruction of society today. People are just so for SELF it’s sickening. Anyway, God has warned us about how people will act in these last days (Romans 1, 2 Timothy 3), so it’s no real surprise to see more and more of these type of votes and celebrations.

Praise God that Mary didn’t decide to have an abortion, or Elisabeth, or Hannah, or, or, or….

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost …  Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. – Matthew 1:18, 23.

And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: – Luke 1:41

If you have had an abortion in the past

The Good News is that God has forgiven you of your sin, but ONLY through the Lord Jesus Christ. Know the wonderful good news of His salvation and be saved today!.

A Quick Look at Tithing


No Comments

READ: Malachi 3:1-12 compare 2 Corinthians 9:7

There is no mandate anywhere in the New Testament for tithing. Each time the word “tithe” or “tithes” appears in the New Testament, it is used in reference to an Old Testament event or a concurrent Jewish practice.


The New Testament epistles contain numerous admonitions, exhortations, and rebukes, because of numerous sins and spiritual problems, but nothing is mentioned about tithing.


Hebrews 7:5 states quite clearly that only the sons of Levi had a commandment to receive tithes, not pastors or other religious leaders.


The Mosaic Law was given to Israel through Moses, not to the Church. If Christians are supposed to tithe, then what about circumcision, worshipping on Saturday, observing the holy convocations (Passover, Feast of Tabernacles, etc.), animal sacrifices, a tabernacle, and all the other components of the ceremonial law? Numbers 18:26-28 says that the Levitical priests are to offer up a heave offering to the Lord when they receive the tithes of the children of Israel. Should not pastors conduct heave offerings when they receive tithes as well?


The statements Jesus makes about tithing (Matthew 23:23; Luke 11:42, 18:12 – notice the tithe of ‘goods’) are all indicative, not imperative. A plain interpretation of these passages does not reveal any command that tithing should be continued into the Church Age.


Christians who mandate tithing are making the same mistake as the Judaizers. They believed that faith in Jesus Christ is not enough, and certain aspects of the Mosaic Law needed to be retained for salvation and/or sanctification. In fact, Paul stated in Galatians 5:3 that we are a debtor to do the whole law if we get circumcised or keep any other aspect of the law with the belief that this will add to what Christ already did on the cross. Today, circumcision is not an issue in the Church, but tithing certainly is. This is a very sobering concept coming from Paul. A person who is a debtor to do the whole law describes an unsaved person seeking justification by trying to keep the law.


Undoubtedly, the Judaizers of Paul’s time used God’s command to Abraham that he be circumcised (Genesis 17:11) as a proof text to illustrate that believers in the Church Age also need to be circumcised. In much the same way, many of the modern Judaizers use Abraham’s giving a tenth to Melchizedek after the defeat of Chedorlaomer (Genesis 14:17-20) as an example of how tithing should be performed by Christians. Since the cross, however, Abraham’s tithe has no more application to Christians than his circumcision.


The Levitical priesthood has been replaced with the priesthood of believers (1 Peter 2:5, 2:9). So, from this perspective, all that we have, money, possessions, spiritual gifts, belong to the Lord, not just a tenth of our income. Since New Testament giving is discretionary, and not based on a demand of a set percentage, this should dispel the common notion that one-tenth of our income is somehow “holy”, as if God is some sort of a divine accountant.


Those involved in ‘full-time’ ministry should be supported by the people they serve (1 Corinthians 9:7-14; 1 Timothy 5:17-18). A careful review of New Testament giving reveals to us that our contributions should not only be to support our local ministries, but also meet the basic needs of poverty stricken fellow Christians (Acts 2:44-45, 4:32-37; 1 Corinthians 16:1-3; 2 Corinthians 8:1-13; 1 Timothy 6:17-19). There was organised giving within local congregations to care for believing widows and orphans who had no other family to rely on (Acts 6:1-4; 1 Timothy 5:1-16).


2 Corinthians chapters 8-9, and 1 Corinthians 16:1-4 state that a Christian is to evaluate the needs of others and to give as he can. NO PERCENTAGE GUIDELINES ARE EVER GIVEN. Paul had ample opportunity to use the word “tithe” or at least mandate it as a standard to be preserved, but instead Paul gives us new rules for giving, which would supersede the Old Testament law for giving. If there is any single verse in the New Testament that nullifies the “tithing in the Church age” doctrine, it would be 2 Corinthians 9:7, which says, Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give: not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.


Love is to be our motivation, not compulsory legalism (Hosea 6:6; Micah 6:6-8; Mark 12:28-34; 1 Corinthians 13:1-7). How much consideration we have for the poor, for example, is an indication of our spiritual condition (1 John 3:17).


Those who preach the “tithe” as doctrinally applying to Christians are wresting the Scriptures to conform to their belief at the expense of the truth. They either through ignorance, from fear of ridicule of those like-minded, or from not wanting to admit what they always taught was wrong, continue to apply Old Testament practices in the New Testament, in essence, placing those who hear them under the bondage and curse of the Mosaic Law (Galatians chapter 3).


The New Testament method for a Christian

Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. – 2 Corinthians 9:7

  1. Give cheerfully,
  2. Give as you purpose in your heart, and
  3. Give as God has prospered you.

And if you do, then here God’s promise for you is in 2 Corinthians 9:8, and is one of the greatest promises outside of Romans 8:28.
