The corrupt NIV

New International Version

The NIV omits 63, 625 words from the text. That is enough omission to throw out a third of the New Testament. 

In attempt to back up the Roman Catholic heresy that Christ spoke Aramaic, the NIV translates "Hebros" as "Aramaic" instead of "Hebrew"........

John 5:2 Now there is in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate a pool, which in Aramaic is called Bethesda and which is surrounded by five covered colonnades. 

John 19:13 When Pilate heard this, he brought Jesus out and sat down on the judge’s seat at a place known as the Stone Pavement (which in Aramaic is Gabbatha).

John 19:17 Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). 

John 19:20 Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek.

John 20:16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned toward him and cried out in Aramaic, “Rabboni!” (which means “Teacher”).

Acts 21:40 After receiving the commander’s permission, Paul stood on the steps and motioned to the crowd. When they were all silent, he said to them in Aramaic

Acts 22:2 When they heard him speak to them in Aramaic, they became very quiet. Then Paul said:

Acts 26:14
We all fell to the ground, and I heard a voice saying to me in Aramaic, ‘Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.

The NIV is the only version with this error in the translation of "Hebros".


In prophetic reference to Christ....

NIV, Micah 5:2“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.”

KJB Micah 5:2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.  

Does Christ have origins? The NIV says so. Thankfully the King James Bible tells us that Christ is from EVERLASTING. 

In reference to Jesus Christ, the NIV says.....

NIV, Luke 2:33 The child’s father and mother marveled at what was said about him.

KJB, Luke 2:33 And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him.

Was Joseph Christ's "father"? No! Christ was virgin born. 

Now look at how the NIV completely ruins the most perfect verse in the Bible on the deity of Christ!

NIV, 1 Timothy 3:16 Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great:
He appeared in the flesh, was vindicated by the Spirit, was seen by angels, was preached among the nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in glory.

KJB, 1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

Next the NIV omits the reference to Christ as God's "holy child" and replaces it with "holy servant". 

NIV, Acts 4:
[37] Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed.
[40] Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” 

KJB, Acts 4:
[27] For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,
[30] By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.

Next the NIV gives Christ's title, (Rev. 22:16, "morning star"), to SATAN. That is satanic BLASPHEMY. Not only that, the NIV omits the name "Lucifer" from the text!

NIV, Isaiah 14:12 How you have fallen from heaven, morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!

KJB, Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations

Next, the NIV attempts to make a SINNER and LIAR out of Christ....

Christ got angry, Mark 3:5 And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

The NIV says that Christ will now be in danger of judgment for that....

NIV, Matthew 5:22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment.

KJB, Matthew 5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

Next the NIV makes Christ a liar.

NIV, John 7:
[8]You go to the festival. I am not going up to this festival, because my time has not yet fully come.”  
[9] After he had said this, he stayed in Galilee.
[10] However, after his brothers had left for the festival, he went also, not publicly, but in secret.

KJB, John 7:
[8] Go ye up unto this feast: I go not up yet unto this feast; for my time is not yet full come.
[9] When he had said these words unto them, he abode still in Galilee.
[10] But when his brethren were gone up, then went he also up unto the feast, not openly, but as it were in secret

Christ DID go to the feast (v.10), He just wasn't going to do it "YET". The NIV omitted the word "yet" making Christ a liar. 

The NIV attacks the blood atonement of Christ....

NIV, Colossians 1:14 In whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

KJB, Colossians 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

The NIV creates contradictions in scripture.....

NIV, Mark 1:
[2] As it is written in Isaiah the prophet: I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way”
[3]  “a voice of one calling in the wilderness,‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.’”

KJB, Mark 1:
[2] As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
[3] The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight

The quotation is from Malachi 3:1 and Isaiah 40:3, that is "THE PROPHETS". The NIV gives the whole quote to Isaiah when it is NOT.

The NIV mistranslated pascha (Πάσχα) as "passover" instead of "Easter" in Acts 12:4. In the context the passover is already over (Abib 14) because the days of unleavened bread were already over (Abib 15-21) making Easter the only option left for Peter's execution.

Other problems.....

The NIV omits the prophetic reference to the sacrificial death of Christ in Genesis 22:8 by changing "God will provide HIMSELF a lamb" to "God himself will provide the lamb ".
The NIV says that Israel was "baptized INTO Moses" (1 Cor. 10:2) confusing the passage greatly. Israel was "baptized UNTO Moses" i.e. identified with him and the Lord. The only person that one can be baptized into is Christ, and that is by baptism "BY THE SPIRIT" and "THROUGH THE FAITH OF THE OPERATION OF GOD" (1 Cor. 12:13, Col. 2:12).

Which is why the NIV has been properly labeled the "Nutty Idiot's Version".
