Why Our Bible Is Changed

Bill Brinkworth

”The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever”. Isaiah 40:8

 God promises many times in the King James Bible that we will always have a copy of his Word. Satan, of course, cannot get God to break His promise, but He has done all he could to confuse people of what God has really said. Even in the Garden of Eden, Satan controlled the serpent to confuse Eve of what God actually said: “. . . Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?” Satan knew exactly what God commanded Eve to do, but by changing and challenging what God said, he got her to break God’s commandment. Because of this confusion, the first sin was committed, and we have been paying for it ever since. He is still behind the changing and questioning of the Bible

Satan knows the value and importance of God’s Word, and has never stopped confusing man with what God has said. We have one true Word of God, preserved exactly how it was given to the leaders, kings, prophets, disciples, and scribes to whom God dictated it. In the English language, it is the King James Bible, also known as the Authorized Version of 1611. It is the version Satan hates the most, because he knows how pure and powerful it is.

To this day, many believe Satan is still working to put doubt on what God has really said. Surely, he is behind the over two hundred different bible perversions. Each one claims to make it easier and clearer, but each are changing biblical doctrines and principles by deleting verses, and adding and changing words. They are clearly not the same as the old King James. Many of the newer versions have thousands of changes. Although the author of confusion (Satan) is in the midst of ALL of the new versions, the men he uses to pervert and alter God’s word have many reasons for their changes. Here are some of them:


We still have the inspired, preserved, inerrant Word of God within the covers of the King James Version. Do not fall for the new version’s sales pitch that it is trying to help you and make the Bible easier to understand. It is not man’s intellect that applies the Book’s words to our heart and lives. It is the Holy Spirit of God that shows us what it means anyway (I Corinthians 2:13-14). Man’s efforts to make it clear cannot do what only the Holy Spirit of God can do for us.
