THE PERILOUS TIMES OF OUR DAY

The sexual revolution of the 1960’s has helped to make America the divorce king of the world.   There is no other nation on the planet that has a divorce rate as high as America.  (See: Marriage, the Blessing or Divorce, the Curse)

It is said that in the average American church today, the divorce rate is even higher than of the un-churched.

Homosexuality is widely promoted in America and has now crept into many churches.

There is no other leader of any nation that promotes the homosexual agenda like the leader of America.  (2010)

Today the Moslems are quickly advancing in population percentages yet the so-called Christians are diminishing in population percentages.   Moslems are quick to label America as “that great Satan”, and they point to the trash on our TV, the way American’s dress and pornographic magazines that Americans view as their indisputable evidence.

Moslems commonly say that Christians have no Bible because they are always changing it to suit themselves.

What has happed to us?

Modern Christianity does not change people but simply makes them educated, educated to believe a modern gospel yet mostly absence of true repentance, absent of holiness and absent of power to make new converts that change the world unto true Salvation.   Modern Christianity has no power to convert a sinner into a saint.

The Bible warned us of these times.

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”  (2 Timothy 3:1-7)  (Also see Matthew 24)

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”   (Matthew 24:35)

“There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.  (Proverbs 16:25)

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”  (2 Timothy 4:3-4;  See: Biblical Corruption and the Source of the New Age Doctrine) 

The Bible gave us the remedy but people want it their own way.

“Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.”   (Jeremiah 6:16)

“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,…”   (Romans 1:22)

Writers of modern versions have already decided for you that they are using the best available manuscripts however by mixing various portions of manuscript families, they are creating new texts that never before existed.  By creating new texts and convincing the readers with such marvelous explanations, the copyright owners believe that they have earned the right to copyright the text and peddle it to those that do not understand the difference between the 90% majority Greek texts sourced in Antioch and the 5% minority Greek texts sourced in Alexandria, Egypt.

If one is to believe that Biblical change is in order then one must also believe that God failed to keep His Word because for thousands of years God’s people have not used the sources of the modern versions but of the KJV’s 90% majority text.  

The critical text use to generate modern versions is comprised of only about 5% of the available Bible manuscripts while the KJV is built upon the majority 90%  majority texts.    The KJV will not agree with the minority text since the writers purposely steered away from using manuscript texts of Alexandria, Egypt, a place of great immorality.

The KJV is based only on manuscript families that God’s people used for thousands of years and this is why the text of the KJV cannot be legally copyrighted unless it is changed significantly.   Man cannot own God’s Word.

The real Bible is all about changing us and not at all about us changing it.   (See Rev. 22:18-20)

Young people of today have little problems understanding and reading most of the KJV however it is the sinful adults of our time that just apparently don’t like what that old Book says and are quick to find a church or a pastor that agrees with their beliefs so that they can retain their sinful lifestyle habits, who according to God will spend their eternity in Hell.

There have been numerous spelling changes over the years, since 1611 the KJV has never changed in meanings and is in agreement with the Geneva 1599 that our pilgrims used.  The KJV was used to make various other Bibles in many other languages and ushered in the greatest expanse of Christianity and evangelistic conversions that the world has every known however the great decline in Christianity of today parallels the increased use of modern versions.  In Europe the decimation of the Christian faith also paralleled their conversion to modern versions.  (See Article: Who Was Westcott)

Concerning the fall-away churches the Lord says, “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”  (Rev. 18:4)

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”  (2 Corinthians 5:17)
