Good News Bible Flaws

The Good News Bible for Roman Catholics even goes farther in being corrupt than the Douay Rheims Bible. Although the Bible Baptist Church-Katipunan saturation team uses a Catholic Bible in witnessing to Roman Catholics, still the corruption can't be denied. Here's what's going on and this is just SOME of the MANY murders.
  • Ecclesiastes 1:1 changes the word "preacher" to "philosopher" when both words are NOT synonyms!
  • The virgin birth attacked. Isaiah 7:14 in the Good News Version replaces the word "virgin" with "woman". A woman is NOT necessarily a virgin. Many times Mary's virginity prior to bearing other children by Joseph is attacked by replacing what should have been virgin with "woman". So much for believing the perpetual virginity of Mary huh?
  • Isaiah 14:12 replaces "Lucifer" with "Morning Star". Jesus is the MORNING STAR in Revelation 22:16.
  • Matthew 16:18 confuses who the rock is. While 1 Corinthians 10:3-4 in the Good News says Jesus is the Rock, however Matthew 16:18 in the Good News says Jesus is the Rock. Talk about CONFUSION!
  • 2 Corinthians 11:3 removes the words "simplicity in Christ" which further justifies the Roman Catholic doctrine of works salvation.
  • Ephesians 2:9 in the Good News removes "who created all things by Jesus Christ".
  • Philippians 2:6 in the Good News replaces "thought it not robbery to be equal with God" with "but he did not think that by force he should try to remain equal with God" which is rather vague and goofy, also suggesting usurpation.
  • Philippians 2:12 in the Good News adds the phrase "to complete your salvation". What the? Don't tell me Jesus didn't pay it all?
  • 1 Timothy 3:16 in the Good News replaces "God was manifest in the flesh" with "He appeared in human form" which is a direct attack on Jesus' deity. I would also like the mention the phrase "secret of our religion" which replaces "the mystery of godliness" from the King James version.
  • 1 Timothy 4:15-16 in the Good News replaces "the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;" from the Lord Jesus Christ to "God" by inserting "by God" — without ANY Greek evidence whatsoever. They deliberately and deceitfully de-throne the Lord Jesus Christ as "King of Kings, and Lord of Lords". Notice also, "commandment" is changed to the nonspecific "orders".
  • Revelation 1:11 in the Good News removes "Alpha and the Omega".

Here are also the other attacks done by the Good News Bible too:
  • Many times the word blood is removed. These verses are Matthew 27:4, Acts 20:28, Romans 3:25, Romans 5:9, Ephesians 1:7, Ephesians 2:13, Colossians 1:14, Colossians 1:20, Hebrews 10:19, Hebrews 13:20, 1 Peter 1:19, Revelation 1:5 and Revelation 5:9.
  • Many times the word "Hell" is replaced with "the grave", the "world of the dead" and "Hades". In fact, like the New International Version, the word Hell does NOT appear in the Old Testament! I would like to point out that the world of the dead is NOT.
  • And the most frequent- removal of WHOLE verses. 1 John 5:7 is just one example which is the Trinity verse that says that the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are One.
  • Many times, you don't even see the phrase "fear of the LORD".
Verses removed from the Good News version:

Question: Does the true Church established by Jesus get to decide what the Scriptures are? NOT!
  • 1 Samuel 13:1
  • Matthew 17:21
  • Matthew 18:11
  • Matthew 21:44
  • Matthew 23:14
  • Mark 7:16
  • Mark 9:44
  • Mark 9:46
  • Mark 11:26
  • Mark 15:28
  • Mark 16:9-20
  • Luke 17:36
  • Luke 23:17
  • John 5:4
  • John 7:53-8:11
  • Acts 8:37
  • Acts 15:34
  • Acts 24:7
  • Acts 28:29
  • Romans 16:24
Matthew 23:14 is emphasized which says, "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For ye devour widows' houses and for a pretense make long prayers therefore ye shall receive greater damnation." which is NOT surprisingly absent from the NIV as well as the Living Translation, ESV, Darby and Weymouth. Hmmm... is it anything surprising?  However from the Catholic Douay Bible we read, "Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: because you devour the houses of widows, praying long prayers. For this you shall receive the greater judgment.". Their lies caught up with them!

Pastor Robert Kent Jesalva Evangelizing to Manny Pacquiao

Apparently Manny Pacquiao has already received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.  Here is a picture of Pastor Robert Kent Jesalva evangelizing Manny Pacquiao to the Lord.  Now pray that his was a real conversion and that his family will follow too.  Now looks like the Vatican has lost another faithful ally... pray that the Lord will lead Pacquiao's life to a different direction.  I just hope though our churches will continue the type of preaching that Pastor Ray Comfort carries out namely the use of the Law in preaching.

Let's just pray that if Pacquiao had a false conversion, it would be a real one as Paul Washer would repeatedly warn, "The only evidence of eternal security is continued fellowship."  True Christians will definitely continue to receive trials as life goes by to continue assuring them this that their conversion was real and to cure all doubts that they possess salvation and can't lose it.

What's Wrong with the Ang Dating Daan Movement?

The Ang Dating Daan movement is by the Members Church of God International spearheaded by its pastor (and so-called "prophet") Eliseo Soriano.  While claiming to be an expositor of the Scriptures with his "Itanong Mo Kay Soriano" or "Ask Soriano" In English, this religious group actually isn't Christian as some of the ignorant would want to believe.  Though the group claims the Bible is their only authority (as some cults do) but the problem is that they believe only Eli Soriano may interpret the Scriptures.  This is utter heresy!  Not even a great man in the Scriptures, Charles Spurgeon ever made such a preposterous claim!  This is no better than the "true church" movement by Darwin Fish which is exposed by Pastor Phil Johnson as a heretical movement.  In fact, I'm not going to waste my time debating with ADD members, they are a total waste of my time as every other debate.
Unlike John F. Macarthur of Grace to You that actually encoura…

What Does Pisseth Against the Wall Mean?

It's really getting bad for some of my Independent Fundamental Baptist brethren to actually even take the words "pisseth against the wall" which appears at least six times in 1 Samuel 23:22, 1 Samuel 25:34, 1 Kings 14:10, 1 Kings 16:11, 1 Kings 21:21 and 2 Kings 9:8 where the King James actually has the words "pisseth against the wall".  Now I am a King James only-ist but I do not support the stupid interpretation of "pisseth against the wall" by some IFB preachers who have become in some way similar to the Catholic Faith Defenders that they argue against when they should spend their time soulwinning.  Actually I even heard that rather outrageous "pisseth against the wall" sermon by Steven Anderson that was so taken out of context.
So what does pisseth against the wall mean? Let us take a look at these six verses and take it on a exegetic view NOT an eisegetic (out of context) view:
1 Samuel 23:22- "And so more also do God unto the ene…

Politically Correct People Tend to Think That They Have the Right to Offend Others But Not to be Offended By Others

Politically correct people have this new problem where they tend to think they have the right to offend others while they have the right not to be offended by others. What examples can be pointed out with politically correct people's demands that they can offend others while having the right not to be offended? Here's a few examples that could be enumerated and observed daily with how hypocritical politically people can get:

Feminists get offensive with their so-called "women's rights" but when somebody criticizes them regardless of gender then they tend to go on a full outburst. They get mad when a man hits a woman but think it's okay for a woman to hit a man that is unless if it's the frustrated housewife who slaps her husband for constant infidelity.The LGBT Community of lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders insist that people should accept their homosexuality as "normal", it's okay for them to post hate comments against Christianity …

Testimony of Former Iglesia Ni Cristo Member, Now a Born Again Christian

Editor's note: 
First and foremost, I would like to thank the Bereans for this wonderful story of a former Iglesia ni Cristo minister (or pastor), now he has become a Baptist Christian.  It's a sad story that some people have just jumped from one cult to another.  Some members of the Watchtower Society, Charismatic Movement or the Iglesia ni Cristo have left Roman Catholicism but they have never truly come to know the truth of salvation is by faith in Christ alone and that any good works after Christian life is but the grace of God at work in the believer.  Now for this brave testimony that I can really share after many years of searching for one testimony which I hope will further bring more INC members to Jesus Christ.

May I begin with a word of prayer that in the midst of all these trouble, I call upon Jesus Christ the Son of God who the Iglesia ni Cristo deny is indeed God, the only way to salvation, that they trust upon their works and church membership than Him alone.  I…

The Idea Homosexuality Harms No One is a Huge Lie From the Pits of Hell!

Homosexuals have their tendency to say that if I am not affected by what they do personally then I should just shut up and leave them alone.  They say that they are just a "normal loving couple" and that their activities are "perfectly safe".  They may be able to deceive the public with false statistics but God cannot be fooled.  I can be fooled, I can fall into doubt but my God is greater than all my weaknesses.  The picture above this paragraph shows some facts from Christian Apologetics Research Ministries on some documented research on how homosexuality harms those who practice it.
A lot of painful facts really need to be addressed when it comes to homosexual activities.  Every sin has its consequence that is why God hates sin.  God hates sin because of the harm it brings.  God is not trying to be a cosmic killjoy when He forbids homosexuality because He knows the consequences it will bring to those who practice it.  Instead, He is doing so in order to protect…

Difference Between A "Good Person" (By Worldly Standards) and a Righteous Person

Romans 5:7-8 says, "For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."  So where is the difference between a "good person" and a righteous person?  There is God's measuring stick vs. man's measuring stick.  Being a "good person" is when a person is compared to the others.  Let's say they compare "Mr. Nice Guy" with the likes of corrupt politicians.  To worldly standards he is a "good person" because he tries to do what is right (by his own flesh).  They are only good according to the worldly standards.  Many may be better than the other like for example, Mr. Nice Guy may treat everybody well.  However here's the real issue with God there is NO such thing as a good person as Romans 3:12 says, "There is NONE that doeth good, no not one." which goes together wit…
