On October 11th of 1962, the first session of the Vatican Council II meet in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.
Over the next few years, they plotted out the future of the Roman Catholic Church.
On November 18th, 1965, the “Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation” was written.
In chapter 6, on page 112, we read:
“But since the word of God must be readily available at all times, the church, with motherly concern, sees to it that suitable and correct translations are made into various languages, especially from the orginal texts of the sacred books.
If, when the opportunity presents itself and the authority of the church agree, these translations are made jointly with churches separated from us *(The Protestants), they can then be used by all Christians.”
This is all the plan and design of the Jesuits to destroy the doctrine of “Sola Scriptura” and to bring the whole world back under the control of the Pope! For many direct quotes from Occultists, Spiritualists and Satanists who openly and harshly criticized the King James Bible and who promoted the Revised Version put out by Westcott and Hort to undermine and destroy faith in the King James Bible as the infallible words of God in the English language, see this site here. You will be amazed.
United Bible Societies welcomes Pope Francis
MARCH 15, 2013 – The election of Pope Francis, ‘a long-time friend of the Bible Societies’, is an encouragement to United Bible Societies (UBS) to work even harder to make the Bible available to everyone.
“He is a man of the UNIVERSAL CHURCH with an ECUMENICAL spirit and he is a pastor, who knows the reality of ‘simple’ people. The new Pope is a truly biblical person whose faith and actions are deeply rooted in the Bible and inspired by the Word of God.”
“As a long-time FRIEND of the BIBLE SOCIETIES Pope Francis knows that our raison d’être is the call to collaborate in the incarnation of our Christian faith,” says Mr Perreau. “WE ASSURE POPE Francis of our RENEWED AVAILABILITY to SERVE the CATHOLIC CHURCH in her endeavours to make the Word of God the centre of NEW evangelisation.”

Pope Francis supports United Bible Societies & Catholic Biblical Federation on ‘Bible and Family’ plans
The Rome-based meeting, which ended this afternoon after a morning audience with Pope Francis, was organized by UBS in order to explore ways in which Bible Societies can work more closely with the Catholic Church to get the Bible into the hands of more families.

IN TRANSLATING THE BIBLE
THE NEW REVISED EDITION ROME
The Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity and the United Bible Societies are pleased to present to all concerned a revised version of the 1968 “Guiding Principles for Interconfessional Cooperation in Translating the Bible”.
The document, now entitled “Guidelines for Interconfessional Cooperation in Translating the Bible”, affirming the spirit and following the principles set forth in the historic agreement first published in 1968, reflects the experience gained in producing scores of Bible translations since then. These interconfessional Bible translation projects have largely been made possible by those “Guiding Principles”; as a result of reports received from the users minor modifications have now been introduced into this new edition.
The basic understanding, however, remains unchanged: as in the past, inter-confessional translations will continue to be based on a Hebrew text of the Old Testament and a Greek text of the New Testament which have been agreed on by scholars from various church traditions. Drafting and reviewing of the translations will be carried out in close cooperation, with the aim that the new text will be acceptable to, and be used by all Christians and Christian communities who speak the language into which the translation is being made.
The clear goal of this interconfessional effort is to produce editions of the Holy Scriptures which provide all speakers of the language with a common text. This will in turn make possible, often for the first time, a common witness to the Word of God in the world of today. To all who are interested in obtaining faithful and understandable translations of the Bible, this updated version of the “Guidelines” will, we pray, be an effective instrument for reaching this goal.
May God bless those who work to make His Word more widely known and lived, and through them bless all who will receive and read these new interconfessional translations.
New Testament: For joint translation programs, teams should base their work on the critical edition of the Greek New Testament published by the United Bible Societies, which is itself a joint effort of scholars representing Roman Catholic and other Christian constituencies. Translators should normally follow this text for readings rated as A or B in The Greek New Testament but may choose other well attested readings when the text has a C rating.(1)
Though a critical text must form the basis of any adequate translation, it is recognized that in some situations certain constituencies may require that some passages of the New Testament found in the Byzantine tradition (as largely represented by the Textus Receptus) should be noted in the translation. When this is the case, such material may appear in footnotes with an appropriate marker in the text. The extent of textual adjustment will depend, of course, upon the local situation, and will need to be covered carefully by clear and detailed principles (see section 2).
Vatican City, November 16th, 1987.
But Guess which Bible the Roman Catholic Church does NOT want you to read –
HERE IS THE CHALLENGE
In Revelation 1:11, does your Bible remove Jesus title of ‘Alpha and Omega, the first and the last’, meaning eternal?
“Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches“
Did the modern Bible versions take away all of the words and verses that validate Jesus deity?
Of course not, that would be too obvious. But God warned us not to take away any words.
Every validation of Jesus deity is a witness to us and to the lost world. So to say that it’s okay to remove some, because those same truths are found elsewhere in the Bible, is a wrong approach.
Your pastor may say that the Greek manuscripts don’t include these missing words or verses, but that is because Satan has infiltrated Seminaries and Bible schools, to cause them to use corrupt Greek Bibles which are also missing them.
Since these corrupt Greek Bibles are the foundation for the NIV and ESV, and they are both missing the words and verses, most Pastors never realize the deception. Satan is the great deceiver and he has been very effective.
The Two Paths Of New Testament Manuscripts
ARE YOU READING A CATHOLIC BIBLE AND DON’T KNOW IT? CATHOLIC CHURCH = Antichrist.
The catholic church couldn’t prevent the printing of the Holy Bible so they corrupted it and all the new versions are the result.
Kenny Moore writes: “Many have bought into the New Age Bible version lie. All modern versions come from ‘Satan’s Satanic Verses’/ the Septuagint, Sinaiticus, and Vaticanus—all proven to be blasphemous, counterfeit, and corrupt. These Satanic MSS come from the underground catacombs of the dead in Roma, Italia. Catholics are forbidden to read the Authorized King James Bible, but the modern ‘versions’ are OK! Why? THE NEW VERSIONS ARE CATHOLIC > NEW WORLD ORDER > Luciferian Trash Theology.”
—- The two most prominent of the corrupt Alexandrian codices are called the Codex Sinaiticus and Codex Vaticanus:
Codex Siniaticus (Aleph or a) was put in the trash heap by the monks of St Catherine’s Monastery. On nearly every page of the manuscript there are corrections and revisions, done by 10 different people. It is indeed worthless trash.
Codex Vaticanus (B) is kept by the Roman Catholic Church, which the Reformers properly identified as Antichrist.
In the gospels alone it leaves out 237 words, 452 clauses and 748 whole sentences.
The early Christians REJECTED these manuscripts, so they were cast aside for a thousand years, until they were later dug up and called “ancient manuscripts.”
God had the Bible translated into Latin, so that it could spread throughout the Roman Empire.
True Path – God had the Vaudois (who lived in the Alps) translate the Bible into Latin. The Old Latin Bible became known as the Vulgate (common) Bible, and it spread all the way to England before 200 AD.
Corrupt Path – Satan responded by having the Roman Catholic Church commission Jerome to write their own version, the Latin Vulgate. Jerome followed Origen’s teachings, so the same corruptions occurred in this Bible. It was completed in 405 AD.
The Latin Vulgate Bible didn’t catch on during that time, because Christians knew it was a fake.
During the Dark Ages 500-1500 AD, Satan used the Roman Catholic Church to kill millions of Christians for using the true Bible, and they burned the bibles.
The Roman Catholic Church taught from their corrupt Latin Vulgate Bible and forbid people to read the word of God.
They persecuted whole groups of people like the Waldenses, the Huguenots, the Vaudois in the Alps, and many more.
As copies of manuscripts have been collected over the years, they have formed two groups.
True Path – The ‘Majority Text’ makes up 95% of 5,300+ existing manuscripts that are in agreement and form the basis for the Textus Receptus which is also called the ‘Received Text’ or ‘Byzantine Text’.
The Textus Receptus is the text which the King James translators used.
Corrupt Path – The ‘Minority Text’ consists of only 5% of existing manuscripts. The main texts, Sinaiticus and Vaticanus, contradict each other over 3,000 times in the gospels alone, and they disagree with the ‘Majority Text’ in 13,000 places.
Amazingly, modern Bible versions like the NIV and ESV are based on these ‘Minority Text’manuscripts.
Sinaiticus and Vaticanus were written from 300-400 A.D., so because they’re ‘ancient’, modern Bible translators mistakenly think that they must be better.
But the Textus Receptusagrees with the earliest versions of the Bible: Peshitta (AD150) Old Latin Vulgate (AD157), the Italic Bible (AD157) etc. These Bibles were produced some 200 years before the Sinaiticus and Vaticanus.
God had His Words translated into the English language, so that it could spread around the world.
Because of its purity, the TRwas used by all the Protestant Reformers of Europe to make their translations.
- John Wycliffe’s Translation (1380-82) was the first manuscript (hand-written) Bible in the English language. 21 years after he died, the RCC dug him up, tried him for heresy, found guilty, they burned his ashes.
- Martin Luther translated it into German, giving Germany the Word of God.
- In 1534 John Calvin helped it get translated into French.
- William Tyndale’s New Testament (1526) was the first printed English Bible.
The Roman Catholic Church hated him and his TR-based Bible so much, that they burned him at the stake.
God used the printing press and the English Bible to save millions of people.
The printing press allowed people to read the Word of God for the first time, and the Protestant Reformers discovered the pure gospel of Jesus Christ.
When the Reformers read the scriptures, they realized that the Roman Catholic Church is Antichrist, the little horn of Daniel, and the beast of Revelation.
Martin Luther declared “We here are of the conviction that the papacy is the seat of the true and real Antichrist.” And millions came out of the RCC and were saved by the true gospel of Jesus.
The Ninety-Five Theses was written by Martin Luther in 1517 and is widely regarded as the initial catalyst for the Protestant Reformation.
The age that brought the Geneva Bible and the 1611 King James Bible was a time of incredible world missions, salvation, growth in churches, called the ‘Great Awakening’, where millions of people were saved.
The Roman Catholic Church created a “counter-reformation” plan.
At the Council of Trent in 1559, they put the new Bibles on the “Forbidden Book” list, punishable by death.
And it empowered the Jesuits, the Roman Catholic Church army, to go destroy all that oppose them. Their mission is to bring the Protestant Church back to the Mother church, and to destroy those who oppose.
Millions of ‘heretics’, mostly Christians, were tortured and killed during the Inquisition.
Part of their counter-reformation plan was to rewrite the Greek Bible and then English Bibles.
Satan countered by having unbelieving heretics, Westcott and Hort(WH), create a Greek New Testament in 1811, based on the corrupt Sinaiticus and Vaticanus, which removed many words that validate Jesus’ deity.
They called the Textus Receptus ‘vile’ and refused to believe that God preserved His holy words. So they set out to create their own Greek text, based on their beliefs and philosophy.
Their Greek New Testament has 5,337 deletions as compared to the Textus Receptus Greek.
Satan then had Westcott and Hort help create the 1815 English Revised Version Bible. The NIV, ESV and other modern Bibles are built on this corrupt foundation, which is why they’re missing many words that validate Jesus’ deity.
Then they created the Nestle-Aland (NA) and the United Bible Societies(UBS) Greek New Testaments, which are based on the Westcott-Hort Greek Text.
The Nestle-Aland(NA) Greek N.T. is the basis for nearly every modern Bible translation, including the NIV and ESV.
It has 8,000 differences from the Textus Receptus, which explains why the modern Bible versions are missing so many words and verses. (i.e. The NIV has 64,576 fewer words than the King James.)
I have a copy of the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece 27th edition right here in front of me.
It is the same Greek text as the UBS (United Bible Society) 4th edition. These are the Greek readings and texts that are followed by such modern versions as the ESV, NIV, NASB, Holman Standard AND the new Catholic versions like the St. Joseph New American Bible 1970 and the New Jerusalem bible 1985 AND the Jehovah Witness New World Translation.
If you have a copy of the Nestle-Aland 27th edition, open the book and read what they tell us in their own words on page 45 of the Introduction. Here these critical Greek text editors tell us about how the Greek New Testament (GNT, now known as the UBS) and the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece grew together and shared the same basic text.
In the last paragraph on page 45 we read these words:
“The text shared by these two editions was adopted internationally by Bible Societies, and following an agreement between the Vatican and the United Bible Societies it has served as the basis for new translations and for revisions made under their supervision. this marks a significant step with regard to interconfessional relationships.
IT SHOULD NATURALLY BE UNDERSTOOD THAT THIS TEXT IS A WORKING TEXT: IT IS NOT TO BE CONSIDERED AS DEFINITIVE,
BUT A STIMULUS TO FURTHER EFFORTS TOWARDS DEFINING AND VERIFYING THE TEXT of the New Testament.”
In other words the bible version you bought 5 years earlier is now different from the latest edition.
Satan has infiltrated most seminaries and Bible schools, so that they teach based on the corrupt Greek text.
Because the corrupt Greek Bibles and modern Bible versions, like the NIV and ESV, are both missing words and verses, most Pastors don’t notice the deception. This has created generations of pastors who in turn teach from the corrupt texts, which misleads the masses of Christians. As you can see, Satan has been very effective.
For you see, instead of Satan attacking the church from the outside, which would be obvious to everyone, he has infiltrated most Seminaries, Bible colleges and church denominations, to get them to use his corrupt Greek texts and Bible versions, as to deceive not only the world, but the church of Jesus Christ.
Not only that, but they teach them to doubt that God has preserved His word, that every manuscript and translation is corrupt, that modern Bibles are based on supposedly ‘older, better manuscripts’
The Jesuits teachings spread from the Vatican to secular Universities. Then students took their teachings to Princeton, Yale and Liberal seminaries. Faith was replaced with doubt through Liberal ‘Higher Criticism’. Then the next generation of professors moved into mainline colleges and seminaries. And then into Conservative Bible Colleges and Seminaries. Then their teachings were spread throughout fundamentalist schools and Bible churches.
Their teachings spread the deception throughout the body of Christ, which is Satan’s goal. Do you now see how we got to where we are?
We should not trust Pastors just because they went to seminary. The Apostle Paul encouraged Christians to “search the scriptures daily, (and prove) whether these things were so.” Acts 17:11
So which path will you follow?
True Path – The ‘Majority Text’ path (King James Bible) that is validated by 95% of 5,300+ existing manuscripts, which were written and kept by believers who trusted in God’s inerrant Word, and believed that Jesus is God?
Corrupt Path – The ‘Minority Text’ path (NIV, ESV and most modern Bible versions) that are based on only 5% of existing manuscripts, which were written by unbelievers who don’t believe that God’s Word is inerrant, or in the deity of Jesus?
Christians who knowingly continue to study these counterfeit Bibles are condoning the errors that they contain.
And Pastors who teach from these corrupt Bibles will be held to an ever higher standard before the Lord.
By doing so they not only place themselves in grave moral danger, but also encourage spiritual deception!
Your pastor, teacher, website Greek, Greek Bible, may use the wrong Greek text, so they are giving wrong answers. Just one example is Acts 8:37. A pastor can look at his Greek Bible and it’s not there, so he concludes that’s why this verse is not in the NIV and other modern Bible versions.
THE PROBLEM IS THAT PASTORS ARE UNKNOWINGLY USING A GREEK BIBLE THAT SATAN HAS CORRUPTED, WHICH HAS COMPLETELY REMOVED MANY OF THE KEY PROOF TEXTS.
Undeniable Proof the ESV, NIV, NASB, Holman Standard, NET, Jehovah Witness NWT etc. are the new “Vatican Versions”
