That's no small change. So I wondered what they possible could have done with 1 John 5:13... These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. This clearly states that once we believe on the name of the Son of God, that we may believe on the name of the Son of God. When I first read this verse I did a double take and thought it was a typo. (KJV humor in case you missed it. : ) Without a doubt, God is telling us that we live by HIS faith, not ours. Our faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. (I Corinthians 2:5) Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith; (Hebrews 12:2)
So what did they do with 1 John 5:13? They just deleted the second half. It couldn't simply stop there though; they had to then drop the 'our' out of Hebrews 12:2 (the last verse mentioned) to fall in line with their program. Words are dropping like flies out of our new bible versions. The NIV takes over 5,000 words out of the new testament alone. (Including the words new testament!) Who could possibly have the nerve to throw God's words in the trash? Does anyone smell a rat? Or is that a serpent I smell?
which I command you,
neither shall ye diminish ought from it,
that ye may keep the commandments
of the LORD your God
which I command you.
